    Sneaky sugar

    Sugar occurs naturally in all foods that contain carbohydrates. Whole fruit, vegetable, grains and dairy, provide our bodies with containing these sugars which our bodies can metabolize and use as a sustained energy source. Some sugar in our diets is necessary and essential for our bodies to work properly. The problem is, we are consuming too much added sugar–because processed foods, which are easily accessible, are everywhere. Soft drinks, cereals, baked goods, canned foods, cured meats, and condiments are all culprits of sneaky sugar bombs. Luckily, at Sprouts, you can enjoy a refreshing can of no-sugar soda without the sugar rush! Plus, sugarless creamers for your morning cup of joe, reduced-sugar treats and everything in between.

    Naturally sweet goodness

    If you’re looking for a filling and nutritious ways to cut down on sugar, look no further than nature!

Leafy greens and berries make a sweet smoothie, while applesauce can be used in your baked treats to cut down on refined sugar, while also adding moisture. Even creamy nut butters make an incredible treat with their richness and naturally sweet flavor.

    Meals made easy

    Mealtime can be tricky with our schedules being so full of family, work and all the extracurriculars that come with both.

    Salt, in moderation, is a necessary mineral that helps to regulate and maintain normal fluid balance in the body. But, with the overload of convenient, salt-laden processed foods and easy-to-order, takeaway options, salt can be more harmful than beneficial, because we may be consuming too much of it. The good news is there are simple swaps to help cut down on sodium in your diet!

    Cobb Salad

    Natural goodness

    Fresh and frozen produce are great ways to cut down on the salt; they’re filling, nutrient-dense, and–well, they just taste good! If you need to buy canned produce, be sure to look out for “no sodium added.”

    Meats and meals

    When looking for meat, poultry and fish, try shopping fresh and avoid products packed in saline solutions, often used in preserving products and tenderizing. Also, deli meats, cured products and processed items will have higher sodium content, so shop carefully and sparingly. Frozen meals and canned soups can all be processed with tons of salt, but with healthier options available a quick heat-and-eat soup for lunch or mashed cauliflower as a dinner plate side can be warm and satisfying with sodium-free!

    Shop the label

    Speaking of “no sodium added,” you can also look for “low sodium” and “no salt added” when shopping for your frozen faves or pantry staples. Enjoy a rich assortment of creamy nut butters and better-for-you bulk goodness all without the added salt!

    Sauce rules

    Just because something doesn’t taste salty, doesn’t mean it isn’t. Jarred sauces and dried mixes are often culprits of hidden sodium bombs–so when able, try to make sauces yourself. Season with fresh herbs, spices and salt-free spice blends for flavor. And remember, acid is your friend! So, if you’re looking to add some zing to your meal, a squeeze of bold citrus or a splash of vinegar can punch things up without the salt.

    Whether you’re gluten-intolerant, have celiac disease or prefer to avoid it for other health reasons, you know how hard it can be to shop for unique gluten-free foods. The good news is that Sprouts is dedicated to helping you find all your favorite gluten-free items, and many more! With options like decadent cupcakes, frozen pizza pockets and protein-packed chickpea pasta, we’re proud to help make your gluten-free journey as easy (and delicious!) and possible.

    Making the switch

    Gluten is a protein found in grains like wheat, barley, rye, spelt and kamut. It’s part of what gives certain foods their structure and texture. Think about chewy bread or pizza dough—gluten is what creates that texture! If you’re looking to cut gluten from your diet, it doesn’t need to feel restrictive. There are so many amazing brands and products out there that are creating innovative gluten-free versions of your favorite foods … and Sprouts has ‘em!

    A simple way to know if an item is gluten-free is by learning to read your food labels and ingredient lists. Start by choosing foods that have a gluten-free certification on them and avoid ingredients like barley, malt and wheat flour. When you’re shopping at Sprouts, either online or in-store, we conveniently label items with a “gluten-free” icon or shelf tag so you can easily spot the products you need.

    Tips for shopping gluten-free

    Preparing a grocery list for your gluten-free diet doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul! You might already have a variety of items in your kitchen that are gluten-free like fresh produce, meat, eggs or dairy products, brown rice and corn. However, you may need to swap out your other staples like bread, oats, cereals, crackers, some dressings/sauces and other items with gluten. Sometimes, gluten can be used as a stabilizer, emulsifier and thickening agent in unexpected places like flavoring and spice mixes, frozen foods, candy, sauces and more. So be sure to check your labels to ensure they’re free from these additives!

    Here’s a quick (and clean) list to kickstart your next trip:

    • Any fresh fruit and vegetables. (Nature’s gluten-free treat!)
    • Brown and white rice
    • Lentil or chickpea pasta
    • Gluten-free waffle and pancake mix
    • Grain-free tortilla chips
    • Gluten-free crackers
    • Any unseasoned meat and seafood
    • Eggs
    • Oils and nut butters

    The organic difference

    Organic foods are a healthier choice compared to their conventional counterparts because they follow a strict set of agricultural guidelines and standards. This includes avoiding the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, antibiotics and genetically modified ingredients.

    Organic items are also produced in a way that helps preserve the environment and natural resources through more sustainable farming practices, helping improve our soil, air and water quality. In order to carry the USDA Certified Organic seal, farmers, ranchers and food processors must go through a thorough verification process by a USDA-accredited certification agency.

    Making the switch

    Since many of your grocery-list favorites and exciting new items are available in organic at Sprouts, it’s easier than ever to make the switch. Next time you make your shopping list, simply swap your staples with organics items. Are eggs, coffee and bread always on your list? Start there! As you shop for more and more organic groceries each week, eventually your refrigerator and pantry will be stocked with plenty of organic goodness you and your family can feel good about.

    Here are a few reasons to shop organic:

    • Organic fruit and vegetables may contain higher nutritional values than conventional ones.
    • Shopping organic goods can reduce your exposure to synthetic pesticides, antibiotics and GMOs.
    • Organic farms can help preserve water and soil resources.
    • Organic products help promote earth-friendly and sustainable farming practices.

    Pro tip: Shop in-season!

    We’re proud to offer some of the freshest, most unique produce items every season. Save time and money on your favorite organic produce items while they’re in season by purchasing large quantities and freezing them to use when needed.
