I frequent this Whole Foods Market a lot and although, like any WFM, it's easy to leave here spending a small fortune, there are a couple vegan secrets most people miss and I thought to share.
The first is pizza Thursdays, where you can get a full vegan pizza with a variety of options for $10. If you like pizza with Daiya, this is for you, although the quality of the crust varies from time to time.
The second is the 5 for $5 deal. Tucked just between the pizza counter and the raw food bar is a small section where you can get 5 items for $5 and all are always vegan. This is great if you like to eat healthy & simple (add chili if you need flavor). These usually include 3 cold & 2 hot items, usually a raw salad, a veggie dish, a grain dish, a legume dish, and another salad or cold cooked veg dish.
Third is that at the other end of the store is the "Vegan Grill" which is listed separately on HappyCow. You get a salad or a sandwich with a side for $5.99. They have about 10 choices, all vegan. (even though the sign on the kale salad says honey, I've been told it's untrue and there is no honey).
Also of mention is the all vegan food section in the pay-by-weight food which on Wed is cheaper by a couple $. Any finally, the burrito bar offers a Gardein or Beyond Meat option, and the $4.99 one is usually a ton of food.
I vote this my favorite WFM, been to dozens of them!
