Eco-Vegan Shopping: Local, Organic, & Bulk Food

A few days ago I made a video about a great trip to the farmers market, and today I made a similar one about my visit to the Santa Monica Co-Opportunity. I felt incredibly empowered after buying spices, grains, and seeds in bulk and fresh organic produce - I barely used any packaging and I saved a ton of money. I invested in some glass jars, which were only $1.69 each, and then filled them up with the amount of organic spices I needed - in total this cost about $2. And of course, none of the items I bought contained gluten, soy, oil, or refined-sugar (with the exception of some flax crackers that had a tad of soy in them).



Here's what I bought:

  • Ancient Harvest Organic Quinoa Pasta
  • Mary's Gone Crackers
  • Grapefruit
  • Oranges
  • Papaya
  • Sweet potato
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Almonds
  • Quinoa
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Dates
  • Mustard seed
  • Chia seeds
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Flax seeds
