  1. My local Whole Foods is the only grocer that carries lychees. I fell in love with these while travelling through South Africa. I would carry a bag of them with me everywhere I went, and never thought I would taste one again until I found them in the WF produce section.

  2. Whole Food’s salad bar is probably my favorite thing about any grocery store, ever. You can get a pretty big, healthy and filling salad for $7 which is on-par with the cost of a fast food meal but 10x better for you.

  3. I love the interesting foods at Whole Foods, especially the frozen meals. You won’t find any boring Stouffers there! Their hot food bar is also fantastic and a favorite stop for dinner.

  4. In addition to their awesome produce and flower selection, they are the only place near me that sells high quality baking chocolate and cocoa powder, so I always be sure to stock up when I’m there. Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway!

  22. There’s such a wide range of healthy food products at Whole Foods that I’d love to try!

  23. I love Whole Foods and am trying to ease my family into a more “whole” food pattern. With 2 little girls, I’m more focused on healthier meats and dairy and trying to focus on local and organic produce. Plus, my 9 year old is an aspiring chef- trips to WF would be AWESOME dates with her!

    Cape Cod is finally getting their own whole foods 5/19.

It’s my dream to work in their test kitchen one day!

My boyfriend and I love shopping at whole foods because we’re able to find sustainable fish and seafood, non-gmo products, and our favorite locally and humanely produced milk for a lower cost than most area stores.
