I am a Jersey Girl through and through. My entire life, I’ve lived amongst the golden corn fields of Summer, and endless barren pine. There emanates a sweet hum of consistency, a feeling that no matter how much life changes, I can always rely on home to find comfort and peace from the fears of change.
Am I the only one who isn’t the biggest fan of change? Imagine my surprise to find that one of my favorite stores had ‘downsized’ to allow room for a new business.
I didn’t like it. And as crazy as it may seem, I felt a sense of uneasiness not knowing what this new business would mean for my life — Will I like what this new store has to offer? Will it take away from the store I already loved?
But guess what…not all change is bad.
I found out that the new store — my secret nemesis — was a Sprouts Farmers Market…and I instantly became excited!
Sprouts is a healthy grocery store that offers fresh, natural and organic foods/products at a super affordable price.
Everyone knows, when first starting a healthy eating journey, you learn quickly just how expensive doing so can be. You can easily blow through your entire paycheck trying to purchase things off your grocery list.
I visited Sprouts for the first time a couple of years back while visiting family in Georgia. I had recently began eating more organically, and was amazed by how affordable the prices were. Things that I once shelled lots of money for, were easily reduced by half.
Another awesome reason to love Sprouts, even though 90% of the items at their stores are catered towards those looking for natural/organic products, they keep 10% of their products ‘mainstream’ for those who may be new in their journey of healthy eating.
That sounds like a win for me. Yet, there was one problem — there was no Sprouts local to where I live…until now!
Sprouts has over 320 locations, one of them now just a few minutes away from home. I’m really looking forward to all the options this will allow me to try. I’ve been wanting to experiment with more organic recipes, etc., and now that there are more affordable options to explore, my kitchen is about to be on and poppin’.
Have you been to Sprouts before? What fun products or recipes have you tried? Which should I try next? Let me know in the comments below…
If you’re in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, definitely check out Sprouts‘ new location in Marlton. Make sure to stop by their grand opening on June 5th!
Until Next Time,
