This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have a new sale starting today at our Boulder Sprouts stores, and Whole Foods has a new flyer for the week, although it looks to me almost identical to last week's. There also should be something new happening at Vitamin Cottage after their Hotline sale hiatus, must check that out.

At Sprouts through January 13th, the big news is the return of the Vitamin & Body Care Extravaganza, with everything in that department 25% off (although if you are a fan of Whole Foods' own brand of supplements, which you obviously can't get anywhere else, stay tuned tomorrow for news of a weekend sale on all supplements there). In meat at Sprouts, I'm really liking boneless pork loin chops (roast also) at just $1.79 a pound. Chicken breast tenders are also $1.79 a pound, stew beef is finally a good sale price at $3.99 a pound, fresh ground chicken (breast or thigh) or pork is $2.99 a pound, whole or split chickens are $1.69 a pound, bone-in country style ribs or pork shoulder roast are both $1.99 a pound, chicken Italian sausage (pork also) are $3.99 a pound, and 93% nicely lean ground sirloin is $5.99 a pound. It looks like just as you are starting your New Year's resolutions to eat more plants, less meat, Sprouts is making this an exceptionally good week to be buying meat. In fish, I'm liking previously frozen wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets at $7.99 a pound, and fresh farmed tilapia is $5.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, one pound bags of Earthbound Farm kale or Power Deep Green blends are $3.98 each, and it's a good week for fruit, with four pound bags of Valencia oranges or grapefruit $2.98 each, 5.6 ounce containers of blackberries also $2.98 each, and you can get a three pound bag of Braeburn apples for $1.98 a bag, and yes, we're still talking organic. Elsewhere in the store (besides the big vitamin and body care sale), I'm liking a bunch of juices at 35% off, and some Fage Greek yogurts are just 79 cents each.

Whole Foods' new flyer runs through January 12th, but as I mentioned above, it looks a lot to me like last week's flyer. To recap some faves, paiche (the new darling of sustainable fish) is $9.99 a pound, fresh ground turkey breast is $5.99 a pound, organic green kale remains $1.50 a bunch, organic navel oranges are just 98 cents a pound (that one might be new this week), Wallaby organic Greek yogurts are $1 each, and WFM's own chocolate mousse remains tempting at $6.99 a pound. So I guess some are new, some the same from last week.
