We went to the grocery store last weekend to prep for this week (which is now almost over!). There are a few great grocery store options in the Hudson Valley area: Adams Fairacre Farms, DeCicco’s and even Stop and Shop can be a good resource as they stock a lot of organic and all natural products.
Here is a list of the things that we bought this weekend:
- Vegetables (all organic)
- red leaf lettuce
- iceberg lettuce (makes great “wraps”!)
- red/ yellow peppers
- raw cheddar cheese
- raw pepper jack cheese
- free range eggs
- feta cheese
- raw butter
- all natural/free range whole chicken
- all natural/free range split chicken breasts (bone-in, skin-on)
- Himalayan Pink Salt – (great source of minerals and tastes delish!)
- organic dried banana chips
- organic raisins
- organic, all natural mayonnaise
- chipotle “ketchup” (its an all-natural ketchup without the added sugar)
- fresh salsa
- fresh guacamole
We went to DeCicco’s in Brewster for all this stuff. I love going to DeCicco’s! They always have interesting things that you can’t find elsewhere and they are pretty reasonably priced, especially considering the quality.
I mentioned this in a previous post but here it is again: about 6+ months ago, we bought the meat from a whole cow, which we split with 3 other families. We got a variety of cuts of meat that totaled 1/4 cow – it is organic, grass-fed beef which we don’t have to include on our regular grocery list each week. The quality of the meat is outstanding and as someone who does not like beef, its very good! NorthStar Sports does have a selection of cuts of meat at a very reasonable price – if you want to try it or just don’t have room in your freezer for a couple hundred pounds of beef, they are happy to sell you some from their stock.
I hope this is helpful! As always, let me know if you have questions 🙂
