New Home Grocery Delivery Service & 30 Healthy Shopping Essentials

Thank you to my friends at for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Simple online grocery delivery is now available in Asheville and beyond!  Check out my haul and my best go-to vegetarian clean eating grocery list.

The Best Vegetarian Clean Eating Grocery List

Hi guys!

Asheville is a lovely place.  We have amazing restaurants, gorgeous mountains and community that I love.  In many ways it’s a little mountain utopia…. I do joke that it takes awhile for trends to trickle up the mountain though.  We sometimes seem to be a few steps behind bigger cities in some ways.  WELL… Asheville is finally catching up and grocery delivery is now a SPECTACULAR thing in this little corner of the world.  For those of you who are local, take notes because I’m going to tell you exactly what to do to get fresh groceries from a local retailer delivered right to your door.  For those of you who aren’t local, there is a very good chance this service is already available where you live so make sure to check.  What I’m about to tell you about gives you the gift of time, which is hard to come by these days!

The company making it all happen is called Shipt.  They are a membership-based online grocery marketplace delivering fresh foods and household essentials through their website or convenient app.  It’s a premium, personalized service that is only $99 dollars a year.  That means for just $99 you can have groceries delivered to your house ALL YEAR LONG!  In South Asheville right now the groceries are coming from Target, but other areas of town have other choices too!  Shipt works with whatever stores are in each individual community. The service is same day or next day… your choice!  You can shop from their handy app or your computer at their webiste.

Once you are a member, all you need to do is pick your store.

Next you can see easily what’s on sale this week!  I love having the option to see if there is anything on sale that I need to stock up on in my pantry.  It’s so much easier than walking up and down all the isles… plus I’m less tempted to buy a bunch of impulse purchases this way.


To shop you can search by what you are looking for or scan categories like aisles at the store.  You can get everything from produce, to everyday essentials and even pet food.  You can also save your favorites to find them easier when you shop again.

After you shop, you pick a delivery time.  The earliest delivery time is an hour away and you can schedule it farther out into the next day as well. I take pride in being a pretty good grocery shopper, but I’ve got to tell you Shipt did a fabulous job.  About an hour before my delivery I got a text from my shopper, Adrianna, who let me know that the store was out of lime La Croix and asked me what I’d like to substitute.  She arrived promptly on time and was super pleasant… even bringing the groceries right into my house.

My food was hand selected, just like I would and delivered to my door.  She even kept my cold stuff in a cooler and my eggs were perfectly taken care of.

It was pretty amazing to not have to spend my time leaving the house, parking, pushing the cart around, checking out, loading my car AND unloading my car into the house.  The day I picked just happened to be pouring down rain too… so I was SO glad not to be out in it.

If you are like me and feel like you never have enough time… Shipt basically gave me back so much time!  In this fast paced day and age time is one of the most valuable commodities.

Plus… I’m thinking back to the times I’ve been sick, broke my elbow or after surgery and haven’t been able to shop.  Shipt is worth every penny if you are in that situation.  But even if you can shop, Shipt gives you the option to make life so much easier.  And sometimes that’s all the incentive you need!

Let’s Get Shopping!

In honor of grocery shopping just getting a whole lot easier (yaaassss!!!,) I thought I’d put together my go-to shopping list for you guys.  This is my vegetarian, clean eating grocery list that I basically start most grocery trips with.  It assumes you have some pantry staples (oils, spices, etc.,) but gets lot of fresh options in your fridge and pantry.  For the greens, veggies and canned beans I gave you some options of my favorite types but what you pick there can determine the kind of meals you will make for the week.  After the list, I linked to some meal and snack ideas that I often make using this list.

    That shooping list is full of the good stuff. I’ve made one of these myself for my upcoming eBook.

    Shipt seems like a great idea, too – get the shopping in when you’re I’ll or just coming back from a vacation, lol.

    What an awesome service! We’ve had grocery delivery here for years (like, at least 15 years) but we never use it!

    Omg nothing better than a service like this!!! Plus I’m all about sparkling water! It’s what helped me kick my soda addiction

    I get my groceries delivered too. It’s so much easier and I don’t have to carry heavy bags or boxes from the car to the door.

    I need Shipt in my life! The service would save me SO much time on grocery shopping. I love the idea of being able to choose the delivery time.

    This is such a great service! From busy moms to people who may be too sick or old to leave their homes, this is a great way to make healthy eating accessible to everyone!

    I love that there are services out there like this. I have never used this myself but perhaps sometime soon I may need to. I really appreciate things that can help out when sick or something like that.

    This sounds like such a great service! I have been debating out trying this, but now I can’t wait!!

    How fun. I think we have something like this for one of the stores down the road but they don’t deliver to my area yet. I could definitely use this!

    The month my twins were born, we started grocery delivery. It was the best thing ever! Personal shoppers are a godsend and I am so happy you too get this convenience!

    I love any system that can make healthy eating even easier. This looks right on the money!

    Wow that is very convenient and honestly, the price is perfect. Some days i honestly do not want to go grocery shopping but i have to cause the house is empty lol. I think this will also be perfect for new moms

    This is a great service! Especially if you’re too busy or the weather is not exactly going-out weather. We have a similar service here…you’ve inspired me to give it a go!

    Wow this service sounds great! A great way to make grocery shopping easier when you’re busy !

    So glad t know that home delivery is available in our area!!

    Wow! As a mom who is welcoming #8 in the next 4 weeks this is a service I could really get behind! I hope we get something like it near us! So awesome!

  21. Erinn March 5, 2018 at 10:29 am - Reply

    I love this idea! For someone who HATES grocery shopping, this is so convenient!
    BTW I LOVE your hair! So long and beautiful!

  22. [email protected] March 5, 2018 at 10:13 am - Reply

    This would be perfect for the busy Mom. For me I personally like to go shopping because I feel like I have more control in what I get and spend. It is easy to just click on things online, but when I go and have to take a cash, I am more cautious.

  23. Maureen @ Maureen Gets Real March 5, 2018 at 8:36 am - Reply

    This is such a cool concept! I like that it tells you which store your food will be coming from as well.

  24. Jaime March 5, 2018 at 8:30 am - Reply

    I used Shipt last weekend when my family was in town and it was THE best service! I’m definitely going to be using it again soon!

  25. Wendy March 5, 2018 at 8:08 am - Reply

    I hate lines in grocery stores and we have long ones here. Our stores have this service as well and it is a life saver sometimes. I like that there is less impulse buying with online ordering.

    When I ran Mercedes in Birmingham a few weeks ago, one of the sponsors was Shipt! Yesterday when I was at Whole Foods, I was behind a woman who was shopping for a local delivery service. Instacart? I had never heard of it. How convenient!

    Grocery delivery is so handy! You are right that it would be a total lifesaver when your sick or recovering.
