If you’re trying to eat better by cutting back on meat, dairy, GMOs, etc, take a grocery trip to your nearest Whole Foods Market. It’s a great grocery store when you want to switch out your favorite snack foods for more Earth-friendly, animal-friendly, people-friendly and health-friendly options. Whether you want organic fruit and veggies or a new packaged food product you’ve read about, Whole Foods is bound to have it.
I live in Brooklyn and am pumped about the Brooklyn location of Whole Foods on 3rd and Third! I’ve shopped many times at the Union Square and and Columbus Circle locations, and I love the BK Whole Foods a bit more. They have a parking lot, for one thing. They also have a juice bar, a bar bar on the second floor, a nice layout, a great produce section, and many vegan food brands.
Whole Foods Market = Amazing Grocery Store for Vegans!
As far as vegan food goes, Whole Foods rocks! They have an alternative meat section and plenty of vegan snack and frozen brands. Here are some of the vegan foods items I’ve picked up during my grocery haul over the past two months:
Food for Life Ezekial 4:9 Organic Sprouted Grain Bread
Dr. Praeger’s Root Vegetable Cakes
Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta
So Delicious Coconut Milk
Amy’s Kitchen Non-Dairy Burritos
Hilary’s Eat Well Veggie Burgers
Amy’s Dairy-Free Rice Mac n’ Cheese
Amy’s Lentil Vegetable Soup and Split Pea Soup
Earth Balance Mac n’ Cheese
Falafel im Falafel
Whole Foods Flax Quinoa Bread
Whole Foods Tahini
Whole Foods Jalapeno Hummus
Whole Foods Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Whole Foods Veggie Chips
Whole Foods Medium Organic Salsa
Whole Foods Fresh Pressed Green Juice
Fresh Produce: Sweet Potatoes, Organic kale, organic bananas, organic apples and organic carrots.
All of this stuff is vegan, but it doesn’t even begin to describe the amount of vegan offerings throughout the store. No matter what city in the U.S. I’m in, I know I can find some quick vegan options if I can get to a Whole Foods. The Brooklyn location is a great place for anyone who wants to shop for more vegan food and needs a grocery store with vegan options. You’ll find them in fresh produce, frozen meals, the deli and prepared foods section, the inner isles, and more. It’s one of my go-to grocery store destinations in NYC.
