Whole Foods is a great store but really expensive. I try to buy most of my produce from a local farmers market and from a smaller regional grocer which has better meats and produce than the larger chains. The prices at the regional are a bit more than the larger stores but still less than Whole Foods. Can't beat Whole Foods prepared food section and grind your own peanut and almond butter stand though!

There is a regional grocery store near my that is very similar to Whole Foods. That is where I do my shopping. If you buy the store brand (which I have found is typically healthier there anyway) it doesn't cost that much.

I was shopping at Whole Foods as I knew that everything I bought there would be good clean healthy food. BUT...I realized how expensive my grocery bill was each time. I am now doing my shopping at Giant - sticking to the perimeter and reading labels. A lot less expensive.

In my area, its Kroger...they have a pretty good selection of whole natural foods. Read labels. You will find that some foods are not as good as depicted tho. I stick to the outer perimeter of the store, to find the best quality foods.

I've had a lot of success at Wegmans - lots of organic fresh fruit, veggies, and meat.

Here we have so many huge outdoor markets with fresh veg and fruit. But in the states my best options were Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Whole foods own brand 360 is much cheaper than most grocery store brands that are filled with junk. They are very simplistic and lots of them are organic. Even though I tried not to buy anything jarred or canned, well some things just had to be and I found their stuff quite satisfactory!

I do one shop on line once a week onthe internet and have it delivered. I buy meat, eggs, fish, fruit, veg. I have always liked simple foods - meat with veg etc so it is not hard for me. Also in the UK there is a pretty good choice from those on line grocery retailers (including organic for those who want to buy it)

The only one of those in my small town is the Farmer's Market and of course that is only in the summer months.
We do have a decent health food store here. I look for whole, natural and as unprocessed as possible. I get flaxseed, bee pollen and other supplements. I buy my meat from ethical farmers and get fresh eggs from my neighbor in exchange for chicken food.
I get stuff online too, like coconut oil etc.

aka: Where do you shop? what do you look for? With all the information out there it's hard to plan a "one stop shop" for groceries anymore but it gets pretty confusing on what is what.

Trader Joes

Sprouts

Whole Foods?

farmer's market?

Where do you find the "easiest" to eat clean?
