A Few of My Favorites at the Supermarket

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

We all do it. Once a week, twice a week, maybe almost every day. The supermarket is a big part of our lives. Some of my favorite items are easy to get and won’t break the bank. Next time you find yourself at Trader Joe’s, Fairway, or the Food Emporium check these products out:

Frozen Organic Broccoli Florets A great staple for any freezer and a perfect compliment to any dinner when you don’t have time to grab the fresh version. Add them to chicken to make a stir fry, saute with garlic cloves and olive oil to serve with salmon, or feed them to your children with whole wheat raviolis

Barbara’s Bakery Shredded Spoonfuls Cereal If you never have tried her cereals you are missing out–they are tasty, low in sugar and high in fiber. Sprinkle some on top of your favorite cereal or eat them alone with milk and blueberries. They also serve as a great snack.

Back to Nature Crackers Choose the big box or the package of individual bags for food on the go. They are crunchy, all natural and delicious. To add flavor spread peanut butter on them, dip them in hummus, or eat along side a cheddar cheese stick.

Sweet Potato French Fries Frozen french fries are an easy compliment to any chicken or turkey burger; sweet potato fries have even more flavor and nutrition. Bake them in the toaster oven with olive oil cooking spray–they are one of my best kept secrets.

Dark Chocolate Morsels We all need something in our back pocket to end a meal or honor a craving. Dark chocolate morsels are rich, delicious, and easy to grab in handfuls. For a blend of flavors add them to a spoonful of peanut butter or sprinkle them in pancakes to sweeten up a Sunday morning.

 

These are just a few of my favorites…feel free to comment and share yours!

Enjoy!
