Favorite Whole Foods Items

Favorite Whole Foods Items

Welcome back to part 3 of of NTK Grocery Stores Favorites! Final store is Whole Foods. We live extremely close to a Whole Foods, so much so that we can walk or bike there, whereas Trader Joe’s is 2 bridges away. I normally do Whole Foods delivery through Amazon Prime because it’s free and convenient.

I am well aware that Whole Foods can be pricey, but there are a few favorite items we buy here and you can’t beat free delivery. It’s a cost benefit analysis I have to do in my head when I weight the cost of lugging all the kids to the grocery store. I have also found that frozen food is relatively well priced here. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you get an additional 10% off of sale items 👏🏼 Sometimes their supplements and health products like protein powder go on sale for 25% off and I will grab some when this happens. 

Normally we spend around $175-200/week, but this past year while eating more at home, I would spend closer to $300. Grocery budgeting is no joke, but we are a family of 5 eating most meals at home and it gets expensive!

This list is not all-inclusive but it does contain most of our favorites.
