I’m on a mission to find out what your Top 5 picks would be if you were to go shopping at The Fresh Market, Whole Foods Market or any other similar store with specialty foods. I mentioned to hubby that I would like to go shop at the local Whole Foods Market since we have never been to it. We have been to The Fresh Market and love to shop there but the Whole Foods Market is a bit more of a distance for us. I have been at the Whole Foods Market website and blog and will keep looking them over this weekend before we go but I could really use some input.
The list I have started includes items I have recently read about on some awesome food blogs (reviews to come). Here is what is on my list so far
What would your Top 5 items be from a healthy grocery store like The Fresh Market, Whole Foods Market, etc.?
Grains and whole grain fun pastas and rices. They have a great selection! Like whole grain orzo and cous cous.
Fun greek yogurts
this may be boring but no salt canned beans. They always carry them and I can’t find them anywhere else!
Hope that helps!

Thank you everyone for your help. I have a pretty good list to go from but I’m open to hear more feedback. I am looking forward to hopefully trying some new and interesting healthy foods. I appreciate your time.
Patty, it was great meeting you today. Totally forgot to ask you about Whole Foods though.
Great question! I love Whole Foods. Here’s what I look for:
Organic fruits and veggies, as well as out-of-the-ordinary fruits and veggies – they let you know what’s local and in season, too.
They have a great muesli in their bulk section that I like a lot. No sugar added, just whole grains, fruit and nuts.
Kombucha – a fermented soda made from tea that helps with all kinds of things, including digestion and metabolism, and is full of digestive enzymes, probiotics and amino acids.
They have a great selection of teas.
Organic dark chocolate made without soy lecithin (I’m allergic to soy).
And, I second Ask the Dietician’s hemp milk suggestion. I love the plain kind from Living Harvest.

Try any of the nuts at The Fresh Market, you can buy a handful. The fresh almond butter you grind yourself or just try a taste! The Greek yogurt is so good. Always adding new products, and the produce is the best. Have a try-they love to sample.
