As always, I am super excited to be working again with Whole Foods Market Encinitas. We are used to hearing people tell us that Whole Foods is too expensive. One of the things I discovered during our Whole Foods on a Budget series was that it actually was comparable and even less expensive in some cases than other grocery stores. Seriously!
There are of course some things that are pricier, but not by as much as you may think. One of my favorite ways to save when I shop at Whole Foods Market is I buy their store brand. 365 is great quality, GMO free, and many are organic. They often offer coupons to save even more!
People tell me all the time that they cannot afford to eat healthy. I don’t want to argue, but I have found consistently that buying whole, unprocessed foods rather than processed foods (no matter where I am shopping) I get more out of our budget.
Well, the good folks at Whole Foods Encinitas wants to share how easy and budget friendly it is to stock your pantry with healthy staples. I will also reveal after the giveaway the exact dollar amount of this prize package – you may be surprised, I certainly was! All of the following items are from the Whole Foods Market 365 house brand- many are organic – all are GMO free!
