PSL Trader Joe's Grocery Shopping Haul - May 2016

plant-smart-living-trader-joes-grocery-haul-may-2016

As you may know, I have been on a whole foods, plant-based diet for over 3 years now. The results on my health have been very significant. From a critical loss of 65 pounds to a reduction in pain and symptoms of other health conditions, it is hard to argue against the benefits of a plant-based diet when the positive results are staring me in the face. My diet has evolved over time to remove dairy products and oils as well. Of course, one of the struggles many face when exploring this lifestyle is being unsure of what to eat. Here is my May 2016 shopping haul from Trader Joe's to give you an idea of what you can put in your cart and pick up!

I hope this has been helpful for you. My goal with doing these grocery haul videos is to show the variety of food that can be purchased to support a whole foods, plant-based diet. While many items can certainly be consumed on their own with minimal cooking, you may consider making a recipe to add some variety and make more complex meals from time to time. If vegan recipes are something that interest you, consider grabbing a copy of the Plant-Smart Living Digital Recipe Guide (available for free or donation - all proceeds go to support PSL content production).
