Budget Shopping at Whole Foods

Whole Foods Tenley logoWhole Foods Market in Tenleytown wants to help you learn how you can purchase good, clean eats for under $50 a week. Scheduled before GDS announced it had purchased the Tenleytown Safeway and the grocery would eventually close, this event seems particularly timely as residents – many of whom have been scared off by Whole Foods’ pricey reputation – start to reconsider their food shopping options. 

Foodie, athlete, and healthy lifestyle blogger Megan Kelly and Whole Foods Healthy Eating Specialist Allison Godfrey will provide tips on how to eat clean and shop on a budget at Whole Foods without sacrificing on quality. Godfrey, who knows the Tenleytown store inside and out, will also help guide shoppers as they plan their grocery lists.

Eating Clean for Dummies – yes, there really is such a publication and yes, I had to look – defines eating clean as “simply the practice of avoiding processed and refined foods and basing your diet on whole foods.” Sounds like something I could, and probably should, follow more often.

As an added bonus, those who join the hour-long session can enjoy some of Megan’s recipes.

Eat Clean on a Budget will take place on June 11 at 6:30 p.m at the Whole Foods Market in Tenleytown. Maybe I’ll see you there!
