Sound the trumpets, cue the happy tears and throw the confetti. That’s how I felt walking down the NOSH aisle at Grocery Outlet with my kids yesterday. (Don’t worry, I didn’t high-five any employees in my heedless bliss.) As a Mom, I am the family chef and providing meals that my whole family enjoys is only half the battle. But being able to provide nourishment and knowing that what they are eating is natural, organic and healthy is my hearts desire. It should be yours too!
Grocery Outlet offers high-quality products at 40-70% less than traditional grocery stores and it’s family-owned. I know you probably know this.. But what you may not know is that they have a section totally devoted to organic, specialty, and natural foods (as I mentioned above) called NOSH. And let me tell you, they have some eye-popping prices!! I saved $40 dollars on a $25 purchase! I snagged Himalayan pink salt, Hemp seeds, soy milk and gluten free flour to name a few. I also was able to snag some Annie’s organic snacks for the kids. They even have vegan foods for all us non-meat eaters.
At Grocery Outlet there’s something for everyone. I was able to create a yummy vanilla cappuccino at home for me, a few organic and gluten-free scones for my kids and a protein packed yogurt bowl for my husband. And the kids got involved with the baking as well. Find these recipes below↓
Other amazing superfoods that they have in stock:
Smoothie mix (Anthony’s and Sunfood brands)

A blissful morning starts with fresh baked scones and organic frothy cappuccinos. But that starts with a great grocery shopping experience. I’m telling you guys, I gushed to my husband about all my great finds. It was like an adult treasure hunt in a sea of natural, organic and vegan products! Good things go fast at Grocery Outlet but rest assured that the NOSH section is here to stay.
