    Why so much plastic in the packaging?

    Thank you so much for doing this video! Since going vegan 7 years ago I've been trying to convince both fellow vegans and non-vegans in my life that Whole Foods is a great place for finding certain staple items. The 'Whole Paycheck" thing is only true if you purchase a good amount of their specialty, pre-packaged items, in my experience. And when trying to shop organic there's just no better place. Thanks again! Love your videos, Alyssa!

    I've found that I get the absolute best tasting nut butters using my Vitamix. I buy bulk nuts from nuts.com—dry roasted peanuts and dry roasted almonds—and then grind them up in the Vitamix and they're absolutely the freshest, cleanest, best tasting nut butters I've had. A huge benefit of doing it yourself at home is also that there's no oil separation if you take your nut butter straight from the blender to the fridge.

    Are you a vegetarian? I didn't see any meat products. Great video BTW.

    Looooove Whole Foods, just went yesterday lol. I agree, its really pretty affordable! My produce is always better quality and lasts longer than what I've bought at other stores. Plus, getting those Amazon deals and extra percentages off sales is amazing.

    I know we can all choose what is right or wrong, but when I think of eggs I think of a fetus. It's a chick that hasn't formed yet. There are so many options to replace eggs nowadays. Not trying to convince you, just keep the perspective of things.

    When Amazon bought Whole Foods, I noticed a big drop in the prices of many things. In fact, I compare their prices to Thrive Market and I no longer think Thrive Market is such a good deal after all.

    Thanks for this comprehensive list! I shopped exclusively at Whole Foods when I visited NYC, but only get specialty items there when I'm at home because I have access to wonderful (highly discounted) grocery stores in my area including Arabic markets and ALDI. I always make a stop at Whole Foods for my hubby's salt-free fries and hash browns. If you mix hash browns & that riced cauliflower it makes a great, healthy hash brown waffle (his favorite!).

    Hi Alyssa! I don’t know if this is at all Whole Foods but there’s a coconut yoghurt the so delicious brand from Whole Foods. I buy the unsweetened. It’s the best brand of dairy free yoghurt I’ve found. But recently Whole Foods doesn’t carry it in the store. However I can order a case of the so delicious unsweetened coconut yoghurt which has 6 of the bigger containers. Has anyone ever tried the so delicious brand and if so does the Whole Foods around you carry it in the store?

    Tahini is a relatively new product in my orbit. Can you give some pointers on how to use it?

    Here’s all the people coming to say eggs aren’t vegan when she literally said she’s not vegan in other videos

    SQ : PLEASE do more research on " Whole Foods " and their DECEIT ON GMO'S & NOT LABELING THEM AS " FRANKENSTEIN FOODS " of course NEGLECTING ALL THE SCIENCE BASED WARNING ABOUT THIS " FAKE FOOD " THEY PIMP ! ALSO THEY SUPPORTED THE NON -LABELING OF GMO'S IN THEIR COMPANY . So much for the idea of " Whole Foods " AS HEALTHY , BEWARE OF THEIR UTTER DECEIT SELLING CRAP AS FOOD ! from Canada J. p.s. A BIG THUMBS DOWN for very sloppy research on Whole Foods and their ploys.

    Isn't it better to buy the vitamin and calcium fortified nut milk varieties since it's very simple to make nut milk at home that is just almonds and water?? I know that you can get calcium from kale and sesame seeds but those are not a staple every day food item everyone consumes, specially kids

    They have great prices on a lot of products and there 365 brand is great quality, especially for Organic canned beans for $1 that you can order directly from Amazon with no delivery charge.

    Always great content, I buy a lot of similar things. Also, I like WF more than Trader Joe's, without a doubt. Thanks for telling us about "Malk"—I'll look for that.

    For those of you who don't know, it's important to know what happens when you support the egg industry. Just google "male chicks eggs" (or YouTube it). This happens with organic, free range, high welfare, backyard chicken eggs, etc. (Backyard chickens come from hatcheries, where this takes place).

    I buy only Vital Farms egg too!

    My family still eats eggs. We love vital Farms! One of my favorite things about Manhattan is that there are so, so many little health food stores all over. At least that was true years ago. I hope it's still like that. I'm wondering if you have a favorite Corner health food store that you go to.

    There is no humane ways about taking eggs of an hen except if you put sunshine and flowers in the background the practice itself remains the same
