Think you need to go to a specialty store to find foods that are better for your family? Think again! You don’t have to go any further than your local Giant grocery store! Did you know that they have over 1,000 Nature’s Promise foods all throughout every aisle? From peanut butter to frozen fruit, they’ve got just about every major food covered.

Shopping Organic Made Easy With Nature’s Promise at Giant

Honestly, up until fairly recently, I didn’t think I could afford to eat organic. There were a  few things that I’d buy organic when possible, like fruits and veggies, but overall, I was overwhelmed by the cost of “eating clean.” A lot of stores in my area charge up to 4 times as much for organic foods versus the non-organic.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t really have a big enough grocery budget to pay $3 for a single apple!

Nature’s Promise at Giant is a total game-changer. They have an enormous selection of USDA-certified organic foods and “Free-From” foods for those looking to eliminate all the extra, unnecessary ingredients from their diet. Best of all, the prices are absolutely affordable and within my budget and they’re easy to find. I’m not limited to a single aisle of organic foods. Nature’s Promise items are right alongside other non-organic choices. That means if I’m shopping for yogurt, I just need to go to one dairy aisle to find it.

  • 1 cup Nature’s Promise frozen mixed berries

Directions: Put everything in a blender or smoothie maker and blend. That’s it!   Natures Promise Organic Mixed Berry Protein Smoothie Recipe (3 of 8) I like to enjoy mine outside while the weather is nice, especially on those early mornings. I find that I can’t quite wake up until I go out in the sunlight for a few minutes. I think it sends a signal to my brain that I really am awake and can’t crawl back into bed. Mornings in my backyard are nice because we have a lot of wildlife in my neighborhood. If I’m lucky, I can catch a deer grazing. Sometimes I even see a black bear running through the woods!

Yet we all have a budget that we need to stick to. Nature’s Promise lets me stay in my budget and easily choose better options without having to make an extra trip to a health food store (or even to a separate aisle!).
