This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while as mentioned in the post just below, Vitamin Cottage is on a sales Hotline hiatus, probably until January 1st, almost upon us. Here's what's looking good to me now.

In Sprouts' new sale through January 6th, I'm liking boneless sirloin tip roast or steak for $3.99 a pound (just cut that up for stew beef), all of their fresh chicken sausage $3.99 a pound, fresh ground chicken breast or previously frozen ground turkey breast also $3.99 a pound, and their very good stuffed chicken breasts $2.99 a pound. They also have stew beef at $4.99 a pound, but note you could buy the sirloin tip and take a second to cut it up yourself for less. In fish, fresh farmed Atlantic salmon fillets are just $4.99 a pound (and I've been surprised by how pleased I've been with these in the past), raw peeled and deveined 31/40 count wild shrimp are $5.99 a pound, and wild Alaskan cod fillets are $7.99 a pound, both of the latter previously frozen.

In organic produce at Sprouts, green curly, Lacinato or red Russian kale are all 98 cents a bunch, a better price than you'll see in the Whole Foods sale below. Red, yellow or orange bell peppers are $1.50 each, four pound bags of Valencia oranges or grapefruit are both $2.98 each, and bananas are just 48 cents a pound. In conventional produce, Hass avocados are notable at 48 cents each. Elsewhere in the store at Sprouts, I'm liking select Annie's products at 50% off, some Cascadian Farm cereals also 50% off (their granola or bars also included), some Odwalla juices $2 for that usual 15-ish ounce bottle, and some Spectrum chia seeds are 25% off, although I burned out on those a while ago, using too often and plentifully on my salads, but they really are good.

In Whole Foods' new sale through January 5th (that's exceptionally short for them), organic green kale is $1.50 a bunch, but you'll do better than that at Sprouts. For turkey breast that's freshly ground instead of previously frozen as at Sprouts, that's $5.99 a pound. Some Rumiano sliced cheeses are $3.99 each (size not specified in the flyer), paiche fillets are $9.99 a pound (a new favorite in the fish world and it's good, although fresh/frozen not specified in the flyer), Uniekaas Robusto gouda is $13.99 a pound, Ford Farm Seaside cheddar is $8.99 a pound, and WFM's own chocolate mousse sounds tempting at $6.99 a pound. Plus, the big 100 ounce sizes of Seventh Generation laundry detergents are $11.99 each, although I've gotten hooked on the convenience of WFM brands' tablet form for that.
