Sprouts Event – Plant Based

As a paleo eater I love all things whole foods – Fruits, Meats and Veggies which are just so important for our bodies! The paleo lifestyle is based on caveman eating – Only things you would have found in nature (Obviously nothing artificial or processed). However, I don’t eat nearly as much meat as my Husband does so plant based eating has always intrigued me! So I went to a Sprouts Event where Dietitian Suzanne Farrell explained the benefits, methods and products that plant based eaters use (and why!)

Such as certain nuts (Almonds and Peanuts) that are amazing sources of protein, foods that provide Omega-3s if I’m not eating a ton of fish (Such as chia/flax seeds and spinach!) and so much more!Screen Shot 2018-07-05 at 2.55.23 PMThere were plant based products I never realized were paleo that were so tasty! (Like almond based hummus dip.. It’s SO good! Go to your local Sprouts and search around the hummus area – There are some great options for paleo snacking!)

They were handing out samples of their watermelon to people in the store.. What other grocery store does that?!

I love Sprouts for their deals, their fresh foods and their products’ ingredients but most of all their tie to their communities. They’re always wanting to educate, help and assist everyone who’s wanting to learn about healthier eating! I love Sprouts!
