I am a Whole Foods Ambassador. I receive product in exchange for my participation, but opinions are my own.
Last year was the first year I shopped Whole Foods for our Thanksgiving meal, and I’m looking forward to shopping there again this year for our Christmas meal (we’ll be at someone else’s house for Thanksgiving this year). With their new lower produce prices and fresh responsibly raised turkeys, you just can’t beat it. I also pick up my fresh cranberries, italian sausage to add to my stuffing, and my potatoes – including the sweet potatoes.
Not everyone wants to (or can) splurge on holiday meals, so Whole Foods definitely has options for those on a budget. Some examples of splurging vs saving include:
· Splurge: Diestel Organic Turkey $3.68/lb – The best bird you can buy!
· Save: Cranberry Apple Pear Crostata- Baked in house this tender, flaky treat is a must. $7.99
· Save: 365 Everyday Value Winter Blend coffee- Hosting guests? The family that caffeinates together, stays together!
· Splurge: Herve Mons Cheese- Simply the best expression of French cheese available in the U.S.
There are plenty of ways to still get healthy, great tasting food while staying within your budget at Whole Foods!
