Shopping at Wholefoods for the Paleo Dieter


As part of the Paleo Diet, I was looking to see how easy it is to shop for the ingredients which I managed to mainly do at the local high street supermarket.  However, there were a few items that were harder to find: almond flour, raw honey, coconut flour, so in the name of research I went for a poke around Wholefoods to see what I could find for the Paleo dieter.

I have to say, I was pleased to see that there was a vast range of different flours for different diets plus snacks.

Equally happy to see that there was a Paleo section in the takeaway salad bar.

Positives: the gluten-free flour range was extensive and reasonably priced at around £2-£3 for 500g packets.

Downsides: the salad bar was expensive, costing nearly £5 for a small salad.

In conclusion, this is probably a nice-to-have shopping experience and one that caters for the Paleo dieter, however, not all high streets have a Wholefoods and I’m lucky to be living in London where there are several branches.  I’ve searched online and there are a zillion number of websites that show you how to make your own snacks so I’ll be perusing these to find the best ones.
