Something different for my blog this week, I decided to do a bit of a Whole Foods Haul. Unfortunately, for my bank balance, this amazing store just happens to be 5 minutes walk from my work so I find myself wandering there more often than I should. Sometimes, I just go in for a look around the shelves as it makes me happy.
After just popping in for some quick dinner ideas, I ended up getting a fair few bits so I thought I would show you these in Blog Post format:
Thai Gang Red Thai Curry Paste £2.49 – unfortunately, I can not always get a vegan version from my local supermarket so I thought I would try this one. Thai is by far my favourite cuisine and I don’t cook it often enough.
Rude Health Pumpkin bar 99p – Delish! Not sure what tempted me to pick this up but I’m glad I did, it was great. Sweet, tangy and satisfying.
Clift bars £1.49 – these are probably my favourite protein bars. Not the healthiest but the peanut butter flavour is just such a treat and is really getting me through my long weekend runs.
Pulsin Protein Bar £1.69 – continuing with the snack bar, theme. My favourite flavour is the Vanilla Chocolate Chip.
Explore Asian Black Bean spaghetti £2.49– ok, perhaps I got pulled in by the big Point of Sale display as they were ‘on offer’ but black bean spaghetti? Whaaat? I had to give this a go. I cooked this with some roasted veg and a homemade tomato sauce and it was pretty good. Definitely fills that pasta craving.
Amisa Spelt crackers £2.99 – my favourite platform for avocado goodness right now. Just mashed with some lime juice and salt and slathered on these crispy delights. Yum. Also a good alternative to bread for soup.
Taifun Tofu with herbs £2,99– now the next section of my haul is entitled ‘worknight dinners when I just can’t be bothered’ or something like that. First up is this already flavoured smoked tofu with herbs, perfect for when I just don’t have the time to press and dry out my tofu, this comes in real handy for loads of recipes from stirfries to curries. Super easy and real tasty. Steam it, fry it or add it to salads. Life saver.
Drago Vegetable burgers £2.49 – I do make my own veggie burgers quite often and have been playing round lately with getting the right combination but I thought these were be good for those busy nights when I don’t have time to create my own masterpieces.
Urban Fruit £1.67 – a recent discovery of mine, you can also buy these in supermarkets too. No added sugar, these beauties taste just like gummy sweets but actually count as one of your five a day. The Strawberry kind are by far my fave.
Whole Foods Porridge Oats £1.69– after noticing how much I am spending on various snack bars for pre and post gym snacks (see rest of haul), I have been making my own of late (recipe to come) and therefore have been going through oats like nobodies business.
Biona Filled Pastas £2.49– now, I try not to partake in pasta too much but what is better for a quick and easy dinner? These two vegan options caught my eye. Spelt – I have tried before and I wasn’t bowled over but gonna give another go. The Tofu and Spices tricolour was particularly tasty, served with the Whole Foods vegan pesto I also bought.
Let me know what your favourite discoveries at Whole Foods have been or alternatively a store you have near you that you love just as much.
Thanks for reading.
