Thank you, Sprouts Farmers Market, for sponsoring this post! As always, all thoughts and opinions are truly my own.
At the beginning of each year, I like to set a list of healthful goals for myself and for my family. Last year, I made it my mission to get my family involved in more outdoor physical activities and I am proud to report that we have achieved that goal! My children have been asking to go outside and play almost every day, and I couldn’t be happier!
This year, I decided to give our diet regimen a little makeover to include fresher, and organic products. Buying organic products is a wise choice that comes with many benefits.
Did You Know…???
• Organic food is often fresher because it doesn’t contain preservatives that make it last longer.
• Organic food contains fewer harmful hormones and pesticides than conventional food.
• Organic production helps conserve and protect water.
When shopping for my organic products, Sprouts Farmers Market is my top choice! It’s my one-stop-shop to get everything I need for my New Year goals. They always have the freshest, organic produce and a variety of unique items that you can’t find anywhere else. This month, I’m going to be sharing all about why I love shopping at Sprouts and I thought it would be fun to start with an inside look at my weekly shopping trip!
My first stop is the produce section! I love, love, LOVE the produce section at Sprouts because it’s located in the heart of the store and everything is so fresh, bright, and inviting! In addition to stocking up on a few staples such as organic bananas, bell peppers, and apples…I always end up buying a new fruit or veggie that I’ve never tried before!
Next, I like to stroll over to the grocery aisles to pick up a few pantry staples. Throughout my career as a Registered Dietitian, I’ve always told my clients to shop the perimeter of the store as a way of avoiding the “not-so-healthy” items in the aisles, but Sprouts is definitely the exception!
They have a huge selection of wholesome, organic products located in the aisles and each product is clearly labeled with a green tag, which makes it super easy to spot! These products can easily be incorporated into a healthier lifestyle. A couple of our favorite items are the Sprouts Organic Crackers and organic peanut butter!
One of my favorite departments in Sprouts is the vitamin and body care section. They have a huge selection of organic products and there is always someone there to answer my questions and recommend the best products for me.
Before making my way towards the checkout area, I always pay a visit to the Bulk Department! Seriously, I can literally spend hours in this area looking at all of the products and filling my reusable bag with lots of goodies!
It’s a great way to reduce waste on packaging. My new favorite find was this Organic Multicolored Popcorn. It looked so cool, so I just HAD to try it!
The best part about shopping at Sprouts is that I always spend less! In addition to their competitive prices, the Sprouts App gets you access to exclusive promotions and more than $100 in coupons every month! Awesome, right?! And guess what y’all… I’ve got more great news! You can win groceries for an entire year from Sprouts! To enter, just text “Sprouts” to 777688. PLUS you’ll get special deals and promotions, too.
