Simple Truth 101

101. That’s the number of preservatives that you will not find in Kroger’s Simple Truth brand. Preservatives like antibiotics, aspartame and ethylene oxide just to name three. If you don’t know what those are or how they effect your food, it’s probably best not to be ingesting them. Trust me, the other 98 common preservatives on the list which are found in everyday foods are best not included in your diet either. When you see the ‘Free From’ badge on the Simple Truth items at Smith’s you can breathe (and eat) easier knowing you are serving your family the healthiest choice around. Oh and an additional bonus- it’s easier on your checkbook as well.


Words like ‘organic’ and ‘all natural’ can sometimes have the same meaning as words like ‘expensive’ or ‘over priced.’ I used to wonder if the organic bananas or milk are really worth the extra dollars I need elsewhere in my budget. Now I don’t need to ask because I know with Simple Truth I’m not sacrificing dollars for quality. The Simple Truth 2% milk my family goes through like water and the Simple Truth Peanut Butter energy bars I hand my boys on the way to soccer are a welcome addition to our grocery list not only because of their taste and nutritional benefits but also because it doesn’t put me over budget to include them.


It’s not hard to spot the Simple Truth items sprinkled throughout the Smith’s closest to you because the packaging is awesome. It is clean and bright just like the ingredients. Here’s a list of some of my favorite Simple Truth staples I recommend you try on your next grocery run:

Instant Oatmeal- a total lifesaver on busy mornings!

Flavored Electrolyte Waters- stay hydrated on the go with a delicious taste to boot

Health and Wellness Bars- a huge variety of flavors (including chocolate chip- my favorite!)

Free Range Chicken- a versatile staple for your meal calendar. Check out our Yogurt Chicken Curry for a healthy and simple recipe.

Salad Mixes- the perfect pair to any meal. I’ve tried them all and I love every option.

Frozen Pizza- so many options and a guilt free meal for a busy night!
