All the Hauls

Hey everyone! I hope that you are all well and that you enjoyed your weekend. It went by too quickly for me, as always and the grind starts again. I did hit up some grocery stores yesterday and I made sure to take a picture of everything so I could share it with you. Do you guys have to go to multiple stores to get everything you need? I do my main grocery shopping at Trader Joe's but there's just a few things that I can't get there. I went to three stores yesterday. It's exhausting, haha. I'm fully stocked though and I'm excited to make some fun things to share with you on Saturday.


First I have my Trader Joe's haul: Romaine hearts, tomatoes, cabbage, bananas and potatoes.


Also from Trader Joe's: The new Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips (you guys, these are amazing!), refried beans, pineapple, frozen corn and frozen broccoli.

You guys. I got some insider info from Trader Joe's. We'll probably not insider info but I got some exciting news! They are coming out with coconut aminos! They should be stocking it by the end of the month and it's perfect timing because I'm pretty much out of tamari.


I also went to H-Mart and grabbed a few things. I got 2 Chinese Eggplants, a bunch of scallions and some Black Bean Sauce. I don't know about you but I've been seeing jjajungmyeon noodle recipes EVERYWHERE lately and it looks so good. I think it's basically a Korean noodle with black bean sauce recipe and I finally gave in and said I have to make it! I can't wait to try!


I also got this soup spoon from H-Mart. I love this kind of spoon and I thought this one was so pretty so I picked it up.


Finally I went to Stop & Shop which is the regular grocery store because I wanted to try this Zevia ginger ale. If you've been reading for a while you'll know I tend to get nauseous a lot for whatever reason. Ginger ale helps but I just wanted to find a better option. I've tried Zevia before but not the ginger ale option so I figured it was worth a shot. I'll let you know when I give it a try.

So that's the haul! I have some fun meals planned for the week and am looking forward to sharing them with you. I hope that you are all having a good week!

  1. Awesome haul!!!!! I used to do MWM - MidWeek Munchies but I think some of the best posts daily/weekly is seeing what people are finding - naturally - so that is why I'm not pushing the meme/linky any more! So exciting seeing more vegan haul posts on everyone's blogs!

  2. Soooo, I finally got to a Trader Joe's in Nashville, and they were out of the Everything But the Bagel seasoning!! I was so bummed. Maybe next time. :-( Also, I saw those chips and totally should have gotten some. On a happier note, I did get Green Dragon Sauce, and I am totally in love.

  3. Hooray for TJ's! They were still out if the meatless fare on my most recent trip, which is discouraging but I remain hopeful! Sometimes I go to two or three stores, too! I'm looking forward to your Saturday production!

    1. I have a feeling it will be a while until they have the fake chicken stuff again which is so sad! Isn't it funny how so many people go to multiple stores? Looking forward to showing some fun things!

  4. Great haul! I have been seeing the black bean noodles everywhere on YouTube and they look so delicious! I can't wait to see yours! I definitely go to a few stores to get the best deals. I'm lucky in that Natural Grocers, Sprouts, Trader Joe's and Smith's are all in the same vicinity so it's easy even as a pedestrian! I love your new spoon too.
    That's really awesome that Trader Joe's is getting coconut aminos! You know it will be cheaper than at regular groceries which is why I never buy it! Thanks for the scoop!

    1. Thanks! I know, on youtube it looks even better haha! I can't wait to try it. I'm going to use MommyTang's recipe of course :)

      I'm excited about the coconut aminos! I think she said it will be $3.99 a bottle? Either $2.99 or $3.99 but either way it's a great price!

  5. Looks like some Mexican food was planned for, but you only posted on the Asian food.

    My mother used to go to several grocery stores when I was growing up, based on their specials of the week. Just seems like it would be impossible to find one store with everything, but I suppose there are folks out there that always live with just one store.

    1. I still have the Mexican food planned, I just didn't get to it last week. Definitely this week though :)

      My mom shops at one store and I wish I could find everything at one store. Although Stop & Shop (one of our local chains) has been really upping their game and offer TONS of vegan options in their natural section.
