How's it hangin?
In our neck of the woods, we're still getting over a summer cold. Yes, we...McNugget has decided to share his snot and boogies and other lovely forms of mucus with me, thus giving me my fair share of sniffles and drainage and sneezes. Thanks son.
Oh well. Despite all of that, he's still all smiles and giggles. No fever. Not too fussy. Sleeping like a champ. Complaints over.
Let's get to the goods, friends. I'm SO excited to share this week's Wal-Mart goodies from y'all. Summery sips, snacks, and supper ideas are comin' your way. All Paleo and budget-friendly!
And, as always, if you end up tossing any of these or past goods into your buddy this week or weekend, snag a pic and post it on Facebook or Instagram, tagging me in it! Or, if you see something you think is worthy of the HHT's approval, let me know by leaving me a comment below or shoot me an email at email@example.com .
1. Fish People Alaskan Wild Cod
WHAT: American-caught wild cod
WHERE: Frozen seafood section
WHY: High protein, vitamin B12 (energy-booster), iodine (thriving thyroid), and selenium (natural detox), this sustainable seafood choice is caught in Alaska. For about $4 a filet, this is waaaaaay cheaper than what you'd pay for it in a restaurant. Need a recipe for it? Stay tuned....
2. La Croix Mango Sparkling Water
WHAT: Mango-flavored sparkling water
WHERE: Beverage section near wine and sodas
WHY: No sugar, artificial sweeteners, sodium, or fake junk. Not only that, it's super refreshing, crisp, and makes a fantastic addition to summer cocktails and mocktails.
3. Purely Elizabeth Chocolate Sea Salt Granola
WHAT: Savory-sweet granola
WHERE: Gluten-free section (ours is in the baking aisle)
WHY: While it's not cheap (about $5.50 a bag), you get what you pay for! Baked in coconut oil and coconut sugar, this non-GMO, organic, fair trade, gluten+soy-free granola is SO STINKIN GOOD!!!! Sure, I like to make my own, but if I'm going to buy store-bought, this is an AWESOME choice. Not only that, it's loaded with probiotic strains to boost digestion.
4. Better Body Foods Refined Organic Coconut Oil
WHAT: Neutral-flavored organic coconut oil
WHERE: Baking aisle with other oils
WHY: For those who don't love the flavor of coconut, this refined oil still provides all of the health benefits of traditional coconut oil (heart health, increase good cholesterol) without the strong flavor and odor. Plus, with its high smoke point, this is a safe oil for high temperature cooking.
5. Mauna Loa Dry Roasted Macadamia Nuts
WHAT: Dry roasted, lightly salted macadamia nuts
WHERE: Nut and jerky section
WHY: With no inflammatory oils like canola or soybean, these powerhouses are loaded with heart-healthy fats, copper (detoxifying), phosphorous (bone+teeth health), and loads of other vitamins and minerals. Not just for white chocolate cookies,,,
