  • I love a lot of the same brands, but I also shop at Trader Joe's a lot! Instead of almond milk, I tried Ripple pea milk and it's so good! Also pea milk is more sustainable than almond milk and has more protein per serving.
    • Hi Aliya! I tried to like Ripple milk, but I couldn't get over the flavor :( It's such a great non-dairy option for toddlers, too! Glad you found what works for you!
  • Great list! Just missing Saffron Road products!
    • I'll have to check them out! These are more of my everyday products, not certain specialty items! There are other brands I have in my home and will be sure to make another list if there are other brands I discover!
  • A couple times a week we have have Beyond Burgers from the Beyond Meat Co. Great taste. Easy prep. Versatile- use like ground beef but all vegetables.
  • I love Primal Kitchen! Their mayo is the best! Costco in Texas has a large jar of them for $8! Their chipotle lime mayo is also mine and my husband's favorite. :) I agree with Kite Hill (I eat their plain almond yogurt) and Siete!
    • I don't use mayo, but I will definitely keep that in mind when I do need it!
  • Such great brands but very expensive. How much do you spend on groceries each week?
  • I’m obsessed with Noble Made Medium Buffalo sauce! Also a big fan of PaleoChef Peach BBQ sauce and everything Tessemae’s.
