I guess I should occasionally rename this segment as "What WE Found at Wal-Mart", huh?
Though he doesn't always seem as entertained by the wondrous discoveries we stumble upon at Wal-Mart as I am.
Usually, he ends up passing out the second he gets in his car seat to traverse home from our Wal-Mart outings.
I must apologize to y'all about today's post...it was creeping into late afternoon nap territory (as noted by McNugget's facial expression above) and I was trying to get outta Wal-Mart quickly as to not totally upset the applecart that is baby nap routines; y'all, I only highlighted 4 healthy foodie goodies for y'all this week.
I'll try to make it up to y'all next week.
Nonetheless, I'm continued to be impressed and blown away by the paleo-friendly, gluten-free, and local products I find in Wal-Mart week after week. We don't all have to shop at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's and Sprout's in order to live healthy lifestyles; though let's be real, I'd have no problem shopping at those three grocery stores more often that I get to...I don't think Trader Joe's is going to be opening a store in Corsicana, TX any time soon.
As always, if you're out and about grocery shopping ANYWHERE and see a product you think would rock my socks, snap a pic to tag me on Instagram or Facebook OR tell me about it in the comments below.
AND lastly, if you haven't yet entered my blogiversary giveaway for free snacks to nourish your tummy and soul, you have two more days left to do so. Take 54 seconds and click here to enter!
I spy with my little eye, something that is NOT Paleo at all and I'm okay to live with the repercussions of my actions. I am human, after all.
1. CLIF Salted Caramel Cashew Protein Bars
WHAT: Salty-sweet Whey Protein Bars
WHERE: Protein powder/bar section aisle of health section
WHY: By far the cheapest price I've seen on these bars (better than Amazon!), these bars are tasty, have little sugar per serving, and pack 14 g of protein. I like to travel with one of these stashed away for on-the-go calories and protein.
2. Texas Texas Roasted Garlic and Serrano Salsa
WHAT: Locally made salsa
WHERE: Salsa section of canned veggie aisle
WHY: Not only is it an Austin-based company, roasted salsas tend to have a little more interesting flavor. I opt of medium since I like a hint of heat without ruining my taste buds for the day.
3. Mikey's Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops
WHAT: Totally Paleo Muffin Tops
WHERE: Gluten-free section of frozen food aisle
WHY: As you can see on the box, there's no junk in these taste muffin tops. While I've had them for breakfast with a little melted ghee, they'd be tasty as dessert, too. $5.76 for 4 Paleo muffin tops? What a steal!
4. Beetnik Paleo Lemon Chicken with CauliRice
WHAT:Paleo, organic frozen dinner
WHERE: Healthy frozen meal section
WHY: 100% organic, pronounceable ingredients, 100% Paleo, AND Austin-based, this local company offers frozen dinners that I'm excited to try. I may need to keep a few of these squirreled away in my own freezer.
That's all for today my little sunshines. I'll see y'all tomorrow for a dessert recipe I hinted about on Instagram this weekend. Until tomorrow, be well and spread a little light.
