Here’s something I was really excited to share with you guys – a vegan grocery haul! We recently went to Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco, where you can find a wide range of organic and vegetarian grocery items.
I needed to stock up on some of my favorite items, so I hope you enjoy this quick errand with me. First on the list — vegetables. I started off with some dried and fresh shiitake. I prefer using dried shiitake mushrooms for recipes that lack that umami element to it. I always make sure to get a lot of dried shiitake whenever I can, since I love making broth. I also got white chantrelle mushrooms (it’s my first time trying them!), pitted green olives, salad greens, and sprouts.
Next, we got some meats. I picked up 2 boxes of FieldBurgers from Field Roast, DIY Breakfast Sausage from Tofurky, and Sloppy Joe from Humboldt. Of course, my grocery haul won’t be complete without Gardein products, specifically their Beefless Tips and their Crispy Tenders.
We also picked up some Bucatini (wheat flour), Nona Lim Tokyo Ramen, Kite Hill Blueberry-flavored, granola with toasted white puffs and flax, Pacific Organic Oat Milk (makes your smoothies creamier), Goat Rock Roast (my fave coffee beans), Earth Balance Aged White Cheddar Puffs, So Delicious Dairy-Free Coco Whip, and Acme Bread. You know, daily essentials.
While walking around, we got to meet the owner of Pickle Planet. We tried some of the samples and decided to bring home their Lil Kim Chee and Spicy Beans.
Before going home, we restocked on soap and shampoo. We love Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Hemp Eucalyptus Pure Castile Soap, and Everyday Shea Unscented Conditioner.
For all of these items, our grocery expenses amounted to $159.61. I’d say that’s a good price for the value these groceries give me.
I hope you get to check out Rainbow Grocery in the Bay Area. You’ll find a lot more amazing items there, beyond what I’ve already shown you here.
