It might seem a bit overwhelming to shop at more than one place. It's worth it though to find the best foods at the best prices especially since budgeting is so essential now days.
CostcoEggs (they have brown eggs without antibiotics or hormones)
Organic Salad Mix and spinach (best price--they are washed and ready for the blender for green drinks)
Vegetables and fruit
Organic Peanut Butter
Kids Cliff Z Bars (I get these for my purse when we are out)
Organic Raisin Bran
Organic Butter or tillamook butter
Sunflower Market: ( my go to store)Organic milk (best price $3.89/ gallon)
Yogurt (either horizon or mountain high whichever is on sale)
Green leafy vegetables (best price for organic)
Meats (all of the meat they sell is from a local farm without the use of antibiotics or hormones and the
prices are great, look for ads. Wed is double add day.) Family Chicken breasts (skinless,
boneless) $1.77/pound Ground beef on sale $1.99/pound
Organic Mac and Cheese (best price on the sunflower brand)
I get all the vegetables and fruit at Sunflower. They also have great prices on cooking oil, agave nectar,
and cereal. I spend 70% of my food budget at Sunflower.
Good EarthSprouted Wheat Tortillas
Organic Tortilla Chips
Organic Apple Juice (unfiltered)
Bulk herbs section: 1) can get spirulina for green drinks and other herbs like comfrey, beet powder,
absorbic acid, kelp, etc
2) I buy spices in the bulk herbs section. Great prices and then I refill my spice jars
at home. Ex. Curry, Chili powder, etc.
Hope this helps. I know it probably seems extreme. I go to Sunflower every week and Costco 2 times a month and Good Earth 2 times a month. It's worth it to get the right foods for the right prices. Stock up on items when they are on-sale. Azure Standard has the best prices for grains and beans. go to www.azurestandard.com
I also buy a lot of coconut oil from a local coop. If anyone is interested, you can buy a 5 gal bucket of coconut oil (you'll see that just about every recipe has it in it). The price is $160.
You noticed that I don't have a lot of processed foods on my lists. It's because I seldom buy them. If there's a sale sometimes I'll get the kids some fun snacks or licorice or something. Processed food is expensive. By not buying expensive processed foods, I can afford splurging on organic milk or good tortillas.
