Veggie Vibes // What I Buy at Whole Foods

Top:  Wear Bare Bones ℅      Jeans: 7 for all Mankind      Shoes: People Footwear ℅     Bag: 88  

Whole Foods is my happy place.  They have such a wide selection of healthy and vegan products, beautiful produce, and a bomb salad bar.  Of course, you don't have to shop exclusively at Whole Foods to follow a plant-based lifestyle!  I actually do the majority of my shopping at Sprout's and Trader Joe's where I based my diet around cheap and healthy staples like potatoes, whole grains, veggies, and fruits.  The stuff I get at Whole Foods is usually just stuff I can't find anywhere else, and I try and keep the costs fairly inexpensive.  

I'm wearing this top that the awesome team at Wear Bare Bones sent over!  I love their vegan statement tees and this Veggie Vibes tee is so fun to wear in a casual outfit like this one.  If you're one of my vegan readers, definitely check them out!  

Here's what I got at WF-

Cereals $3.00 each // Oatmeal $3.29

I love the Whole Foods 365 brand of breakfast items.  I actually don't tend to eat cereals in the morning, but more as a sweet snack or dessert.  The crunchy cinnamon squares and peanut butter cocoa balls are my favorites!  For breakfast I love having oats, and these Maple Spice oatmeal packets are great if I don't have time in the morning and need something super quick.  

Marinara $2.99 // Ravioli $3.99

I used to love ravioli before I went vegan, but there are two raviolis that I like to get now: Candle Cafe's Portobello Kalamata Ravioli, and these Rising Moon Organics ravioli.  The Rising Moon brand is all vegetarian, and some are vegan, so you just have to check for the vegan certification or ingredients.  They are super healthy and really well-seasoned.  

I also picked up a jar of the 365 Fat Free Marinara, which is one of the only marinara sauces I've found that is oil free.*  I like making my own marinara too when I have the time.  

*Oil is vegan of course.  I just prefer to avoid oil as much as possible because I prefer to stick to a whole food diet.  Oil is pure fat extracted from a food in its whole form.  It's much healthier to eat the whole food and gain the nutrients that come with the healthy fat!  For example, avocado oil is the oil extracted from avocados.  You could just be eating the avocado and gaining the nutrition along with it.  It's just a personal preference, and I feel best eating oil free.

Maca $7.99 // Hummus $3.49 //  Potatoes $1.99 per lb

Maca, like other superfood supplements, is a little pricier, but I only use it in small quantities so that little bag should last a few months.  I love it in smoothies- it has a light butterscotch flavor to it.  Now this might sound weird, but I love Hope's Dark Chocolate Coconut Hummus.  It doesn't taste beany, I swear- more like a sweet, tropical chocolatey spread.  AMAZING.  
I also love Japanese sweet potatoes- they have such an amazing flavor.  I'm Japanese so I always ate these when I was younger.

    1. Yes, they are so good! I love them in a simple tomato sauce (the one I bought above) and some basil.

  8. I LOVE whole foods, too! Though the can be expensive, so like you, I'll try to snag organic deals somewhere else, but they do carry some unique and amazing brands! I'll have to try the peanut butter cereal you've shared here, I love peanut butter, so I know I'd love this! What milk do you eat it with, almond or coconut? Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far, beauty!
