I have a thing for lists.
I like to write them, cross off items and then start a new one. They can be applied to nearly any activity such as grocery shopping, meal planning, trip packing and movie watching. Lists are going to be the newest feature on my blog.
Below is a list of Ten of my Favorite Healthy Food Items. It could also be called Ten of My Favorite Things in the Natural/Organic Food Aisle or Ten Products Always on My Grocery List.
Another possible title was Ten Expensive, Is This Necessary? Items That Rack Up on My Food Budget, but the coupon links help ease the pain.
1. Fage Greek yogurt
I mentioned my addiction in the Petra Cafe post. It’s all Greece’s fault.
2. Sabra hummus
Ben can eat the entire container in three days. At $4.49 a pop it’s not cheap but it’s the best brand of hummus we’ve tried.
3. Stacy’s pita chips
We need something to dip in the hummus besides our fingers.
4. Horizon organic milk
I’m convinced the unnecessary addition of hormones to our food sources has an unhealthy effect on our bodies. Although it’s expensive believe it’s worth it.
5. Mighty Leaf green tea tropical
Some green tea can taste grassy, but this tea has a hint of tropical fruit flavors. The pouch is pretty, it’s healthy and I could drink it every day.
6. Illy Espresso
In addition to Greek yogurt, we picked up a cappuccino addition on our honeymoon. It’s another costly habit so I make my own with the Bialetti 06990 Mukka Express Cappuccino Maker. I blame Italy.
Try the chocolate chip cookie dough bar and thank me later. I count it as healthy since it’s made with cashews, dates, chocolate chips and salt. Even flavor I’ve tried is yummy.
8. Honest Tea
Some days I want something other than water and healthier than diet soda, this tea is slightly sweet and immensely refreshing.
9. Better Oats or McCann’s Irish oatmeal steel cut oats
I cook oats, add toppings like fruit, yogurt and almond butter and eat it cold. It’s so good. I’m weird like that.
10. Mom’s Best Naturals cereal
Currently at Kroger these cereals are on sale for $1.49. Stacked with the coupon offer below (-$0.75) they are only $0.75 each and they count towards the 10 item mega event.
