Budget-Friendly and Delicious Plant-Based Products from O Organics® and Open Nature® at Safeway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is that time of year again – back to school time. A time when parents are running around trying to get everything their kids need in order for them to have a successful school year. From new backpacks to the correct pencils, perfectly labeled water bottles to color coded folders, there are a lot of specific, special school supplies that each kid needs! However, I like to focus on what I think is the most important “supply” my kids need to thrive at school- good, healthy food.

I try to make sure my family is always choosing healthy foods but at the beginning of the school year I find this to be even more essential. Kids need to have extra energy and nutrition in those first few weeks in order to help them stay healthy, nourished and focused. It is my job as their mom to find wholesome foods that they will also love to eat. After all, it doesn’t matter how nutritious a food may be, if it doesn’t taste good, the kids won’t eat it! I consider finding delicious and healthy foods my “homework” for the new school year.

I am always looking for healthy alternatives to foods my kids love and I try to swap out things with little to no nutritional value for those that are more beneficial. For example, I give my kids water rather than soda, I cook with olive oil instead of butter and I have recently been buying snack bars that has added protein (you still get a sweet treat but with a little extra nutrition!). I don’t want my kids to miss out on their favorite foods so giving healthier options is a way I can feel good about the things they are eating while giving them what they crave. Of course, I also can’t afford to add hundreds of dollars to our weekly grocery bill- some of those “healthy” foods can be so expensive! Delicious, nutritious and affordable is forever my shopping goal.

This year, as I scoured the aisles at my local Safeway for healthy alternatives to start the school year off on the right foot, I was excited to find a whole line of nutritious foods that fit perfectly into my “healthy swap” motto and also fit into my grocery budget. In fact, there were TWO brands that caught my eye- the O Organics® and the Open Nature® food brands that Safeway has created. One look at these affordable, healthy products and this mom was filling her cart, ready to start the school year off right!

Let me tell you a little bit about O Organics® first. All of the O Organics® foods are USDA certified organic so, if you see that big blue O on the box, you know that it is a product that has been crafted with uncompromising purity and quality. Looking for organic milk? Organic rainbow colored baby carrots? Organic grass-fed beef? Or maybe some organic barbecue sauce? You can find all of those things and so much more- the O Organics® line has hundreds of foods in it’s brand so you can check off everything on your shopping list for sure. Organic foods have been proven to have more nutrients (like health antioxidants!) than their conventional counterparts, so, choosing organic options will give your family healthier, more beneficial foods.

Now on to the Open Nature® foods lining the Safeway shelves. This is Safeway’s brand of “better for you” plant based products. From non dairy milks to nut butters, alternative seafoods to plant based desserts, there are tons of minimally processed, high quality products that everyone in your family will love. If you are looking for high protein options, you should definitely check out the Open Nature® line which has plenty of plant-based protein rich foods and ingredients that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. There are also lots of gluten free options, giving those with gluten aversions more choices than ever before! I know my kids will be excited for a big bowl of Open Nature® dark chocolate hazelnut granola for breakfast before school (who doesn’t love chocolate in the morning!).

Once I found the O Organics® and the Open Nature® foods at Safeway, I knew that this tricky new school year would be off to a good start. I could give my family nutritious, healthy and tasty foods that would help them power through those first days of school. The best part? It was easy! There are O Organics® and Open Nature® options in every single Safeway aisle so I would easily grab them as I shopped, choosing the healthier versions of foods I know my kids love. Anything that makes this mama’s job easier is something I can get behind!

Speaking of making a mom’s life easier, did you know that Safeway also offers Grocery Deliver and Drive Up & Go™ shopping options? You don’t even need to go into the store to get all these fantastic foods! I found everything at my local Safeway but any of these stores will have exactly what you need: Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, and Tom Thumb … they all have these awesome brands!

With incredible shopping convenience and new nutritionally rich foods packing our pantry shelves, I know that this school year is going to be a winner. I strongly recommend checking out O Organics® and Open Nature® foods today to help you give your family the healthy foods they need to make your household school year (and all year) a great one!

    Opting for the more healthful food do tend to be expensive. It’s good that there a products that are nutritious, filling and still within the budget.

    I’m all for organic products and I’ve to try many of these. We drink a lot of organic unsweetened almond milk, but haven’t tried Open Nature. I’d love to try it and the other plant based dishes as well.

  17. 09/12/2020 / 10:10 pm

    I’d try all of these products depending on the calorie count. I use a lot of almond milk.

  25. 09/12/2020 / 7:05 am

    These looks like great and accessible options when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare something from scratch!

  26. 09/12/2020 / 5:51 am

    Those are totally new to me. Indeed, it’s very hard to find those foods in my area.
    But seemed like it’s not in my taste, I would love something that are booming in flavors in mouth.

  27. 09/12/2020 / 4:20 am

    I eat mostly plant based food so this is awesome. I like that their are more options for plant based food.

  28. 09/12/2020 / 2:11 am

    I am always looking for ways to eat healthier! Thank you for the review, I will need to try this brand!

    We’ve been trying to incorporate more plant based food into our diets too. I’d love to try that almond butter.

  33. 09/11/2020 / 6:15 pm

    drive up and go groceries is so important right now at grocery stores (not just for busy mamas). i cannot go out because of my health so we use this feature. Amazon Fresh with door delivery is amazing.

    I have never heard of these. My kids would love them though so out I go to look for them!

  37. 09/11/2020 / 12:52 pm

  38. 09/11/2020 / 12:49 pm

    These are totally new to me. I could give them a try. I am all in for the organics.

  39. 09/11/2020 / 12:34 pm

    I use a lot of almond milk but I haven’t seen this brand. I generally use Simple Truth. But I would be willing to try other organic brands.

  40. 09/11/2020 / 12:13 pm

    These seem great options to try. Vegan products are so much healthy and not that easy to find.

  41. 09/11/2020 / 10:35 am

    We don’t have one by me that I know of, but these look like some great options! If I’m every by a Safeway, I’ll have to check it out.

    I have never tried plant based foods before. We also don’t have Safeways anymore where I live. Nice to see there’s still some in other states!

  47. 09/11/2020 / 3:57 am

    I’ve yet to try any plant based food options, but that almond butter is certainly something I’d be interested in switching out to eat instead of my regular peanut butter. Glad you shared this brand with us.

  48. 09/11/2020 / 3:06 am

    I would love to add more plant based meals to my diet and I love that they don’t break the bank like other meals. It sounds like a great alternate for meals I’m used to eating!

    cute & little

    These products look wonderful. I haven’t heard of them til now. I’ll be checking for them too. They look really good.

  50. 09/11/2020 / 2:39 am

    The Open Nature unsweetened almond milk is a staple in our household! We absolutely love it. I’m a big fan of Safeway’s O Organics line too and I’ve often found it to be on sale and cheaper than the non organic products. Such a win!

  51. 09/11/2020 / 2:28 am

    I would love to add plant based products to my diet without breaking the budget too much so this sounds amazing! I need to check this brand out!

    cute & little

  52. 09/11/2020 / 1:00 am

    I would definitely try these because I want to add more plant based foods in my diet but it is expensive. This is a nice way to add more in.

  53. 09/11/2020 / 12:03 am

    Looks like you have a lot of great options where you are! It’s always a win to find healthy foods at affordable prices! I miss shopping at Safeway!

  54. 09/10/2020 / 10:21 pm

    These sound like some amazing plant based products. I love that they are becoming more common in shops to buy.

  55. 09/10/2020 / 10:04 pm

    Seems like a great company. You can never go wrong with organic food. I don’t have a safeway close to me, but will check if it is at my supermarket.

  56. Amber Myers
    09/10/2020 / 6:48 pm

    I love this brand. I buy it all the time at our store. Everything they make tastes great, and it’s the most affordable organic line out there.

  59. 09/10/2020 / 3:44 pm

    I’m not vegan but I still very much appreciate this type of product, what else can I say thanks for having spoken and made this brand known so well.

  60. 09/10/2020 / 3:36 pm

    I have got to find a Safeway because we are vegetarians and my daughter is vegan. It is always good to find different options that are plant based.

  61. 09/10/2020 / 3:33 pm

    Truly love that animal-free products are so widely available these days!!!
