Have you made some goals to eat better this new year? We have some great places to workout and get fit for you, but what about eating healthier? Luckily, there are some wonderful places around us to help you to get some ideas and even shop for healthy foods. From farmers markets to local farms, we have you covered on shopping for healthy foods!
Willow Bend Farmers Market: Every Saturday from 9 am – 2 pm local vendors will be set up by the mall in the parking lot near the food court entrance. Everything from grass-fed beef, local honey, salsa, sweets, and more!
Heritage Farmstead Farmers Market: Shop local on January 21st for the next market. From 10 am – 1 pm enjoy shopping in the parking lot of the Heritage Farmstead in Plano.
Frisco Farmers Market: Put on by the rotary club of Frisco. They offer many vendors selling fresh foods. They are open every Saturday from May until October from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm or sell out. Their location is always at 4th street between Main and Elm.

Location: 315 S Chestnut St. This is held in both the winter and spring. See website for dates.
Have you ever tried a food subscription box before? They are so convenient and can really save you time by not having to do the shopping for the food, all you do is pick out your meals and then cook them from the comfort of your own home.
I have personally used a few below and was really amazed at the experience. My kids even helped me cook and I loved all the healthy choices for meals.
HelloFresh: This is one I have personally tried. They have a family option for bigger meals that can easily feed your family of 4 or 5 if some are young kids. They get produce from local suppliers and even offer meals under 650 calories. Get $20 off your 1st and 2nd order or 50% off your first box.
Blue Apron: Fresh ingredients delivered to your door with step by step directions. You can pause or cancel anytime. Get 3 meals free with your first order.
Home Chef: Healthy meals in 30 minutes or less. All ingredients are fresh, never frozen. Get $30 off your first box.
Freshly: Fully prepared meals delivered to your door. Everything can be ready in less than 3 minutes. They also offer gluten-free options.
Just for Kids:
Nurture-Life: Fresh, organic meals delivered for babies, toddlers, and kids.
Yumble: Makes food fun for kids and stress-free for moms, with a healthy menu that still feels familiar. Great for ages 12 mths to 12 years. They also offer free delivery!
Sprouts Farmers Market: If you haven’t shopped at Sprouts, you should really give it a try! It’s a specialty chain grocery store that offers a range of natural & organic grocery items. Not to mention they have an awesome vitamin section!! You can find great stuff here at great prices. The store in Plano is located at 4100 E Legacy Dr, #401.
Aldi: Aldi is a chain grocery store that offers unbelievable prices and has many healthy food choices. Have you given it a try? You should get their weekly flyer and you can see the prices they offer on produce can’t be beat! There are a few differences to Aldi that make it not like a regular store. They are smaller stores, they don’t have as many choices for each food item, and they have a lot of private brands so you might recognize them. Definitely check it out and I bet you even save some money! There are 2 stores in Plano; one at 2220 Coit Road and 2400 K Avenue.
Wholesome Grub: Serving health food on the go (or have it delivered!) They have daily specials and foods ranging from breakfast items, salads, and pressed juices. The Plano location is at 4609 W. Park Blvd 75093, closed on Sundays.
Snap Kitchen: Grab and go health-focused meals, snacks, and juices. Located in the Shops of Legacy at 5717 Legacy Dr, 75024.
