Eat Clean with Vitacost

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Vitacost. Of course, all opinions are my own.

I’m fortunate that I live in an area that has many options for health food stores and natural markets, but some people don’t have such easy access to specialty brands. If you live in more rural areas, there often isn’t enough demand for stores to keep a good stock, or the nearest Whole Foods might be an hour away. When you have food allergies and sensitivities, this can be a huge inconvenience.

And even though I do have a lot of choices around me, I’m always open to finding another mail order resource for the basic foods and products that I buy regularly. It’s so much easier to place an order online than it is to schlep to the store, can I get an amen?!

That’s why I was thrilled when I was invited to experience Vitacost — an online resource for health & wellness products, vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, organic foods and much more. I was asked to try out their site and see how it compares with the stores where I regularly shop.

When I clicked over to check out their site, I was excited to see tons of the gluten-free and health food brands I like to buy. They carry KIND snacks, Bob’s Red Mill products, my beloved Glutino pretzels and much, much more.

Here is the assortment of treats they sent me to try.

Vitacost Gluten Free Foods

I’ve already professed my undying love for KIND bars and especially their Maple Glazed Pecan and Sea Salt bars. I keep these in my purse to nibble on when I’m out and about and I can’t find anything gluten-free to snack on.

I know of Pamela’s for their full-size soft and chewy cookies, but I had never tried Pamela’s Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies. Omygosh, YUM. I had to hide them from my kids because they were about to gobble them up in one sitting. They are the PERFECT after-school snack with a cup of milk.

But my favorite new find was Eden Foods’ Organic Dry Roasted Pumpkin Seeds. They’re packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats and zinc. Plus they totally satisfy my salt cravings.

In addition, they sent me a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Apple Blueberry Granola. I can’t wait to mix it into some yogurt for breakfast.

And the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten and Wheat Free Pizza Crust Mix has a recipe on the back for cinnamon rolls. I tried it once before for pizza crust, and it’s pretty good, but those cinnamon rolls have my name on them! I am just waiting to find time to make a batch.

Finally, the Cape Cod Cranberry Mix is a deliciously sweet, satisfying, nutrient-packed snack full of cranberries, walnuts, raisins, dates, dried apples and coconut.

At Vitacost, you can place a one-time order, or you can choose Set and Save to schedule regular deliveries of your favorite health food staples! And shipping is always free for orders over $49.

Believe it or not, their prices are quite competitive. And for added savings, keep an eye on this page with their ongoing coupons, deals and discounts.

    I will have to give this place a look. We have a great healthy grocer about 20 minutes away, but it is so nice to have staples delivered to my door!

    A friend told me about Vitacost years ago, when we first went gluten-free. I’d already suffered sticker shock at the grocery store and Vitacost helps me save money while I cook for my kids.

    Yum! I’m not a great online orderer, but I have to admit, these items look tasty & seem great for my schedule & budget. Also looks enticing for my college-aged daughter. Perfect care package. Thnx for turning me on :)

    This is awesome!! It reminds me of my Grandma Sara, she was so into healthy eating and living way before other became more aware of the options. My grandma lived in Manhatten and passed away over 20 year ago but I know this is something she would have loved!!!!! I love it too!

    I love vitacost and order from them frequently. There prices are better than what I find in my whole foods stores. I buy lotion, soap and beauty products too.

    I ordered form Vitacost once and had a great experience. I really need to start “going” there more often.

    I am always looking for ways to add healthy items to my family’s snacks but it is hard to know what to buy. I might have to try this. Those pumpkin seeds sound delish!
