Hi Foodies,

This past weekend, I decided to head over to two local health food stores!  I visited Goodness Me and my local Whole Foods.

Is it just me, or do you always come back with so much more than you planned for?  I always tend to find new and exciting healthy products that I can't wait to try plus, I always find my go-to favourites to restock on.

Let's start with Whole Foods...I was long overdue for a visit to pick up some speciality goods you can't find at your average grocery store.

I hit up the refrigerated section and went a little komucha crazy!
Whole Foods has such a variety of brands and flavours, so I had to pick up a few that I haven't tried.

I ended up getting:

Pyramid Ferments - Purple Rain Kombucha
Kevita - Mojita Lemon Mint Coconut Kombucha
Tonica - Mango Kombucha (delicious!)
Rise - Blueberry & Maple Kombucha

For those of you who may not know, Kombucha is a variety of fermented tea infused with natural flavours (often fruit), lightly sweetened and usually carbonated.  It may not sound too appealing but it's tangy and fizzy, healthy and oh so yummy!

Next up are these Naked Chickpea Gluten Free Falafel by My Little Chickpea. These falafel are healthy, flavourful and not to mention, they're easy and so versatile. I love to use these in wraps, salads, buddha bowls or even as a snack with hummus!

Of course I stocked up on my ever so favourite Lärabar! I love Lärabar's, they are healthy with all natural ingredients and tasty.  These guilt-free energy bars are my perfect go-to snack between meals.  I picked up a few different flavours to enjoy: Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Coconut Cream, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip & Chocolate Brownie.

Last but not least on my Whole Foods haul, I picked up some Sambazon unsweetened Açaí berry superfruit pouches. I've been on an Açaí bowl kick and I can't wait to make these from home.

Now, onto Goodness Me!  Goodness Me is a Canadian company that started in Hamilton in 1981.  They had one simple vision: to discover, educate and offer healthy living products.  Read the full story on their website.

I found these Raw Paleo Friendly Wraps in the freezer section from Wrap It Up Raw.  The wraps are made locally in Niagara region and are made with organic ingredients and have 6 grams of fibre.  Easy, delicious and healthy...they are my favourite clean eating essential!  

I also picked up these Paleo Protein Bite Cookies/Biscuits by Marci's. I've had my eye on Marci's products for a while and I was so happy to find them in store. Guilt Free and delicious!

Matt came across these little nut butter packets, they had a variety of different flavours available. They're the perfect size for trying out new flavours or even for on the go or individual smoothie packs.

I also bought some JK Gourmet Gluten Free and Paleo Friendly granola and stocked up on some raw organic honey and cacao powder.

Overall, we had quite the eventful trip to Whole Foods & Goodness Me. I'll definitely be going back soon to pick up some more healthy goodies.

What are your healthy food staples?
