From ancient times to the present, the lentil has proven to be one of the best sources of plant-based protein. This legume is a staple in diets throughout the world, but leave it to Enjoy Life to capture the essence of its all-natural goodness. This chip's unique recipe results in a protein-packed, crunchy experience, bursting with flavor as you savor a great-tasting "better-for-you" chip. All Plentils are vegan and free of the 8 major common allergens: wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, dairy and egg. 4oz, Reg. $3.39

Perfect for breakfast with milk or yogurt, crumbled on top of ice cream or fruit for a sweet dessert or as a healthy snack by itself. Purely Elizabeth will keep you fueled throughout your busy day. 12.5oz, Reg. $6.99

Fruitful Hill Farm Local Eggs, Smithville, TX
Ringger Family Farm started in Bastrop County in 2002 with a primary farm enterprise in raising pastured laying hens, along with a few dairy and meat goats. The chickens are moved about once a week to a new section of pasture so they get new grass and bugs to eat, in a method known as rotational grazing. An "egg-mobile" is moved along with the chickens so that they have a place to lay the eggs, and some protection from the wind and sun. Moving them across pasture also provides for a more evenly distributed return of fertilizer to the soil. Their diet is supplemented with high quality, high-variety feed and organic vitamins and minerals; no chemicals or hormones are used on either the chickens or the pasture. Fruitful Hill Farm is located in Smithville, Texas, about an hour southeast of Austin. 12ct, Reg. $4.69
