Where Do You Shop for Food

Thank you all who took the time with last week’s poll on what types of recipes you would like to see on this blog.  It really helps me to focus on what you’re most interested in reading about.   If you didn’t take the Poll, you can still share your opinion.

So now I want a little more information.  I want to know where you shop for your food.  The first poll wants to know where you shop for a majority of your food.  The second poll wants to know where else you shop for your food.

Thank you for sharing.

    Fun polls Diane! I actually buy a lot of food online too, which wasn't an option :)

    Given that I am outside the US we don't have WF, but here chain grocery stores carry some amazingly high quality produce, lots of it local and many many many things organic. Gluten free sections vary though, so for GF foods/ingredients we end up going to about 7 total stores along with weekly market purchases. Let's just say shopping for food has become a major activity for us!

    OK, I've gone in and added the option of online so you are free to come back and answer that. Good option that I had forgotten. Thank you.

    Jenn- wow, so what are you chasing down that is GF at 7 different stores?

    I am very curious about the results of this poll. I found my grocery shopping habits did not change too much when going gluten- and dairy-free except that I started ordering a lot of GF stuff online as it was cheaper than at the store.

    Valerie- You must have already been eating real foods so there wouldn't be a need to change a lot of those out. I'm very interested in the totals too. If you click Poll Results at the bottom anytime, you can see the results.

    As you know I shop at my very basic grocery store almost completely. I order a very few things online: almond flour (Honeyville), coconut oil (Tropical Traditions), some products from iHerb (millet flour, flaxseed meal, brown rice flour, grapeseed oil, etc.), and very rarely I buy a few things at an upscale grocery store in town (Van's frozen waffles to mostly use for bread crumbs, crackers, and Tinkyada pasta). And, of course, I hit my farmer's market whenever I can. But, again, most of my food purchases are from my regular grocery store and are whole, real foods. I'd go nuts if I had to go to a bunch of stores all over. Of course, that's just me and my whole gfe approach.

    Shirley,

    I love your gfe approach! I think we could all take some lessons from you.

    I only shop at two places in person, farmers markets when in season here in VA and Whole Foods. I order the same almond flour but that's it. I'm thinking however to save more money I'm going to make a few changes and shop around for the best prices on the real foods. I need to investigate what types of organic meats they sell. I also may start to order my meats from the farms that are about an hour away. I just learned they are delivering close to me. I'd like to support the local guys, especially since I can go see how they are raising these animals that are roaming around their farm.

    Oh, and I'm spoiled and go to the Penzeys store. If it wasn't here I'd order their spices online. They are the best I've found.
