Before you start joking that it should be called “Whole Paycheck,” let me acknowledge that yes, Whole Foods has the ability to make even the most budget-conscious shopper overspend.
But America’s most famous organic supermarket does have a few affordable gems in its aisles. Here’s a list of 10 things that you can stock up on without breaking the bank.
Opt for freshly grinding your own almond butter on their loud (but kind of fun) machines. It’s almost half the price of a lot of all-natural jarred brands.
Price: $7.99 per pound (peanut butter is only $5.59 per pound)
3. 365 Organic Tea
4. Bulk Bin Grains, Nuts + Seeds
Price: quinoa $6.99 per pound
5. Local Produce
Price: Depends (I got this 3-lb. local red kuri squash for $4!)
7. Cold-Pressed Green Juice
Green juice isn’t cheap, but the Whole Foods juice bar sells 32 oz. for a reasonable price.
Good for snacking and entertaining, this hummus is something I always like to have a tub of in the fridge. I’m currently digging this roasted garlic and chive version.
9. 365 Organic Frozen Produce
Frozen edamame and peas are great for adding some hearty plant protein to stir fries, soups, and stews.
