Grocery Shopping: A Few of my Favorite Brands

Snow is on the horizon for the next few days. When it finally stops snowing, the following days are predicted to have highs below zero. I figured today was the day to go stock up on some groceries.

We have a great grocery store (HyVee) with a newly expanded Health Market. The lady who runs the Health Market is amazing and often carries products just because I ask for them! Just this week, I asked my HyVee if they would carry Just Mayo. It’s a vegan mayonnaise. Just today I already found out the answer- YES! If your grocery store doesn’t carry the brands or products you want, ask and see if they can bring them in for you.

I peeked into my cart and thought I should take a photo and share. I am very thankful for HyVee, Silk, Daiya, Van’s Natural Foods, and other companies that provide safe foods for us.

(Yes, that is an empty GoGo Squeez in the corner of my grocery cart. That is my go to healthy snack for SG to eat while I shop. We love GoGo Squeez!)

(Yes, again, those are used baby wipes under the GoGo Squeez. You food allergy parents know we must wipe EVERYTHING in the cart down, at least once, if not twice!)

We are ready for the snow!

We are ready for the snow!

What are some of your favorite food allergy brands? While we love many more (Earth Balance, Enjoy Life, etc.) these are the brands that happened to be in my grocery cart today. Please share some of your favorite brands.

Disclaimer: I have not been paid by any of these brands or received any type of compensation. I just love these brands and want other food allergy parents to know what safe foods are out there. I really struggled when SG was first diagnosed with dairy and egg allergies. I want to help others if I can. 🙂
