A Dietitian’s Whole Foods Haul Under $30 | You Versus Food


– 10 nutritious and delicious choices for less than $30 at Whole Foods? (gasps) I reveal the scoop on this episode of You Versus Food. You won’t believe it! (upbeat music) Hi, I’m Tracy Lockwood Beckerman. I’m a registered dietician
in New York City. And it’s my job to help you figure out what to eat and why. Let’s go to Whole Foods. Today, I’m sharing my picks for what to buy at Whole Foods, all under $30. (upbeat music) (cash register chiming) This jar of goodness needs to have a common place in your pantry ASAP. Peanut butter is packed with vitamin E, which is great for our skin health, and it’s full of healthy
monounsaturated fats. PB shadily contains iron too. And guess the ingredient
list on this bad boy. Dry roasted organic peanuts, that’s it. I think I even dedicated an entire episode of You Versus Food to how much I love peanut butter. But, seriously, name one food that PB doesn’t taste good on. Go. (cash register chiming) Keeping a frozen green leafy blend in your freezer is a must. This blend of collard greens, mustard greens and kale is a good, nay, excellent
source of vitamin A, the nutrient that’s allowing you to see the screen so clearly right now. The greens are also overflowing an immune-boosting vitamin C, so they’re a great way to sneak more premium nutrition into your life. I won’t leaf you alone until you start throwing it into soups, smoothies, stir-fries, omelets, or even grain bowls, yum. (upbeat music) (cash register chiming) Your sad breakfast just
turned it’s frown upside down. Say hello to old-fashioned rolled oats made from steel cut oats that are rolled flat to
speed up the cooking. As a totally fantastic
source of fiber and iron, oats will keep your body energized, fueled, and ready to tackle the day. You can throw oats into
your morning muffins or even your smoothie. Make overnight oats, cook chicken
cutlets with these babies, or make your own oat milk. Wanna know how to make your own oat milk? Well, check out my video on Well+Good on how to DIY it. Sups easy and you won’t be disappointed. (upbeat music) (cash register chiming) It’s about time you get to know the original refrigerated protein bar, the Perfect Bar. They have a solid balance of healthy fats, whole food protein, and carbs. And they provide high quality vitamins and minerals at your convenience. They are also low glycemic index, so they cause a slower, lower rise in blood sugar. Perfect Bars are sweetened
with organic honey, made from almonds and peanuts, and contain 20 organic superfoods, like kale, spinach, and lemon. 20, you say? 20! The bars are so fresh, they’re even found in the refrigerated section of the store. So, yes queen, they are the real deal. (cash register chiming) You may be familiar with Banza pasta, which is made out of chickpeas, but now this innovative brand has created two types of rice, one made from chickpeas and one made from legumes. Both are gluten free, low glycemic, plant-based, and rich in iron, protein, and fiber to keep you energized and satisfied. With a cook time of six minutes, you really can’t say you
don’t have enough time to prepare a homemade meal. Sorry, Charlie. Did someone say burrito bowl or fab fried rice? Sounds pretty rice to me. (cash register chiming) Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart. The more you eat, the more you fart. The more you fart, the better you feel, so eat your beans at every meal. No, but, seriously, this old rhyme didn’t come out of the blue. There is some true science behind the health benefits of beans. These organic no-added salt cannellini beans in a box, not a can, are silky and nutty, which make them perf for
pasta salads and grain bowls. Cannellinis contain the
basic nutrition essentials, iron, potassium, fiber, and vitamin B. And they also are packed with zinc. So, zinc is an underrated mineral that our body doesn’t store, so it’s imperative that we get enough through our diet. Wanna know a fun Tracy trick? Throw these beans into
smoothies or tomato sauce, and I promise you won’t even taste it. Hey, cannellini beans, where have you bean all my life? (cash register chiming) This brand has the perfect slogan, “Eating well made easy.” And I couldn’t agree more. Made from plant-based awesomeness, this frozen veggie burger has simple ingredients I can get behind. The main ingredients are real. Think whole grain millet, sweet potato, and leafy greens. So, I give this company
a pattie on the back. Bonus, the burgers are free from the top 12 common food allergens, so they can please everybody. (upbeat music) (cash register chiming) I’ve never met a bag of frozen
blackberries I didn’t like, especially with this organic
frozen bag o’ berries, you’ll feel so inclined to make more colorful dishes, like yogurt parfaits, blackberry crumbles, and blackberries and cream desserts. You can even throw a bundle of berries into your glass of
prosecco for a fancy touch. Blackberries are rich in flavanoids, which are natural inflammation squashers, so your body truly appreciates these nutritional gems. (upbeat music) (cash register chiming) Nothing says summer like pure and smooth chilled green tea. No, just me? Okay, well, maybe you will too after this. Tea’s Tea is unsweetened,
naturally sourced, and brewed from premium
whole grain tea leaves. Green tea delivers caffeine at a slower, more relaxed pace, which reduces jitters so
your body temp won’t rise, allowing you to stay
as cool as a cucumber. And green tea contains polyphenols, known as EGCG, one of the most potent
antioxidant compounds in town. Tea-lightful. (upbeat music) (cash register chiming) Just in time for summer, this frozen probiotic-filled
Greek yogurt dessert is one hundo p gonna be your fave. It’s made from real ingredients
like yogurt, coco, and milk and also contains eight
grams of protein per serving which is pretty solid. I’m especially into the
fact that a whole bar is one serving. So you can eat a bar and
then move on with your life. Therefore, you can focus
less on portion control, and more on important things like watching Beyonce’s
documentary, Homecoming, a must. All of this for a total of 29.70, delicious, wallet-friendly,
happy shopping. See you next time for another
episode of You Versus Food. Don’t be a whole fool, subscribe to Well+Good’s YouTube channel. (rasping) Clean up on aisle five.
