One huge health food haul

Hey everyone! Sorry that this is going to be a huge post. I bought tons of health foods the past month, and I'd like to share what I bought. Bear with me. There's going to be tons of pictures and a few reviews of them too. Enjoy!

 I love boca burgers. I usually eat them with whole wheat sandwich thins.
The veggie dogs were delicious too.
The egg whites, well, they tasted like egg whites. I use them to make protein pancakes with the protein powder I bought and I sometimes cook them and put either hummus or salsa.
The Greek Yogurt is delicious. :)

 With the greek yogurt, I tried  it with butter biscuits. Delicious! Tastes like ice cream with a cone, but better!

 Zevia is a healthier option to soda. It tastes pretty good. I was expecting it to be bad but it exceeded my expectations. I also tried the root beer one, but I disliked that one.
This Dark Chocolate Odwalla bar was a bit dry, but it was chewy and delicious. I liked how you can taste the dark chocolate and the walnut. Not too overpowering. 

 The S mores Luna Bar is pretty good. However, I still like my other favorite flavors, Peanut Honey Pretzel, Chocolate Dipped Coconut and White Chocolate Macadamia.

 This Greek Yogurt was delicious. The caramel mixture was on the bottom, but I stirred it and ate it. It was like heaven. Rich, gooey caramel. Yummy!

 I love sandwich things. I sometimes toast the bread and eat it with hummus, peeling off the bread as I dip it in. Sometimes, I make a veggie burger and hummus sandwich or a veggie dog and hummus sandwich with the bread. Yummy!
This roasted red pepper hummus was delicious to! I love the spiciness. Different from the garlic, but still, it was yummy in my tummy.

 I love vanilla soymilk. I just love it. I would drink it everyday, but my parents say it's better to drink regular dairy milk.
The extra dark chocolate chips are delicious! I put it in my greek yogurt sometimes!


 I like baking with whole wheat flour. It's healthier.
The bean curd is delicious! Use it to cook with Asian dishes!
 I love these bean noodle threads. I like it with soy sauce and chicken broth! I also like those vegetarian mock foods. It actually tastes good.
I also love red bean paste. It's my most fav thing ever to eat. 


 The cooking spray can be used instead of adding tons of oil.
I love apple sauce. This one tastes pretty good. There's no sugar added. Yummy Tree top apple sauce.
The Smart Balance peanut butter is my favorite! It's a staple at my house (well, my siblings love jiff and skippy better but they know this one is healthier, without the transfat).
 This is beans and the veggie dog. Yummy!
The Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal was pretty decent. There wasn't much flavor to it, but it was still edible. At least I know it's a healthier cereal that I won't feel too guilty eating.
The frozen fruit is to make smoothies!

 I love brown rice. It's healthy and I eat it for dinner every night. I cook it myself though, since the rest of my family eats jasmine white rice.
Blueberries is one of my most favorite fruits! I also love apples and bananas and strawberries and asian pears. 

 This Sabra hummus is from Costco. It's really good. The downside is that it uses canola oil, not olive oil. Still healthy though, and pretty good.

The Greek Yogurt bars are my favorite! I tried a sample at Costco before I left for China and I knew I wanted to buy it, but it was expensive. After coming back from China, I finally convinced my parents to buy it. They are really yummy! They are healthier than some other types of granola bars.




These whole wheat fig bars were actually pretty good. You can tell they were whole wheat though. Pretty chewy and the filling was sweet and fruity. Yummy! 
I love pop chips. They are delicious. I bought them from Costco! But, they are not as delicious as baked apple chips, but anyway, they are only 100 calories! The downside is that it has a high glycemic level .

The Hi-Chew was from Costco. It's not healthy, but I just wanted to show you guys it. Yummy Asian chewy fruit candy.
The Vitacoco water and the Almond Butter is from Sprout's. The Vitacoco water was absolutely disgusting.
The almond butter was delicious! Creamy..almondy. I like it a lot better than Peanut butter! I wish I bought the whole jar. 






This blueberry acai greek yogurt bar was pretty good! Chewy, with the right amount of sweetness and saltiness. I liked how the almonds gave it a bit of a crunch. Yummy. I also like that the had blueberries!

The Van's Waffles looked pretty good. I've hear reviews about them and I just had to buy it to try it. I bought it today. I'll give you my review once I have tried it. I plan on eating it with vanilla greek yogurt. Sounds like a plan to me. I also bought the Cool Mint Chocolate Clif Bar and the Chocolate Almond Fudge bar today. I plan on eating it as snacks at uni. I've heard good reviews about those flavors, so, hopefully, they'll live up to my expectations. 

 Now, I normally don't like cherries, but this cherry almond greek yogurt bar was delicious! I liked the blueberry flavor better, but this one is still pretty good! Same texture as the blueberry but this has dried cherries.
I've heard of Vitatop muffins for a couple years now. I actually never got around to buying them until this summer! I just had to try it! The first time I ate it, it was delicious! Chocolate cake, with gooey chocolate chips! However, after eating it again, it didn't live up to my expectations. It actually tasted to healthy. 


 Now, the Luna Fiber Bar. I received this one from the company in the mail. It was actually pretty filling! It was chewy like a cookie, a chocolate cookie. I liked how the taste of the raspberry filling blended in with the cookie.
 The apple chips are delicious! I've tried them before because my cousin gave me some to try. The shirataki noodles were ok. It just depends on how you cook the. The chocolate dip from Walden's farm is disgusting when you dip it in something. There's an artificial, metallic taste at the end. However, if you eat it on its own, it's pretty decent. The other things, like the banana bread lara bar, the clif crunch bars and the cereal, I have not tried yet.

 I got these things from Costco! The hummus was delicious! I like how they are snacker packs so  that I can bring them on the go! I plan on eating it at uni. Annie's variety pack is pretty good too! I'm not eating the cheddar though. I don't like cheese.
The Fuze drinks are awesome! They taste like regular juice! However, they do look kinda watery though.

 This is how the hummus looks like!

 This is the chocolate chip bunnies from Annie's. It looks like so few, I know. But, they were pretty good. I ate them as a reward for passing the written permit test on my first try..in 5 minutes. I also baked a Victorian sponge cake, but still. I was so happy!
I just love red bean. Red bean popsicles are my favorite! So is red bean paste..anything red bean! However, the red bean popsicles taste a lot better in China. Their kind is better. Then again , their ice cream is better too.

So, what's your favorite "health" food?
  • I love granola bars and greek yogurt! I like anything sweet and anything chocolate and anything red bean. Frozen yogurt sounds good right now.
Do you guys like grocery shopping? Where do you guys like to shop?
  • Grocery shopping is my favorite thing! I sometimes like it better than clothes shopping. I like Trader Joes, Costco, Sprouts, Sunshine Farmer's Market, Winco, Raley's (the health section) and, I know I will like Whole Foods (I haven't been there before!).
