In our last blog post, I showed you how to find "real food" at Aldi. This week I'm showing you what Publix has to offer. Publix has a wide variety of some harder to find items such as almond milk yogurt, coconut aminos, and healthier salad dressings. Follow us on Instagram to find a shopping tutorial under our "highlights" tab.
Pre-cut fruit and vegetables- Sometimes life gets hectic and you need a little extra help. Buying pre-cut produce can be a bit pricier, but is a huge time saver. Publix has a great selection of pre-cut fruit and veggies along with some spiralized varieties to use in place of pasta.
Organic produce and herbs- Keep up with the sales to find organic produce at lower prices.
King's Kimchi- Found in the cold produce area.
Kevita and GT's Kombucha are two of several probiotic drink brands Publix carries in the cold section near the orange juice.
Dried fruit chips and nuts- A great snack when you need something travel friendly.
Wild caught seafood- Always make sure your seafood is wild caught.
Greenwise Organic Chicken- Greenwise is Publix's organic brand. You'll see many items throughout the store with the Greenwise label.
Springer Mountain Farm Chicken- This chicken isn't organic, but if you read on their website you'll find that they do care about the quality of feed and the care of their chickens.
