Starting the New Year with Kroger's brand: Simple Truth

Starting the New Year with Kroger's brand: Simple Truth

I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world. --Mary Anne Radmacher

One of my most fond memories from studying abroad, during my undergrad, was having lunch at the Blackwell’s Bookstore Cafe on Broad Street in Oxford, England. I specifically remember sitting at a table by the window overlooking the ancient architecture with the focus of the Bodlelian library in the distance. I sat there studying Shakespeare and overhearing the couple next to me discuss their love life. Yet, most importantly, I was eating one of the cafe’s open-faced hard-boiled open-faced egg sandwiches along with vinegar kettle chips and a diet coke. For all of you all out there that have romantic images of Oxford University and its spires please know there are days now when I think about living abroad in this city and all I remember is an egg sandwich: at that table by the window.

Kroger is highlighting some of their specialty brand, Simple Truth, this next week with online coupons, and I had no other option than to share with you a few of my favorite recipes, including the sandwich mentioned above.


I’m choosing to start the new year with some EGGcellent products from Kroger’s healthy, organic brand: Simple Truth. Featured are a few of my go-to products and recipes below. One of my favorites, of course, is @simpletruth4u Natural Cage Free Grain Fed Medium Brown Eggs, which I use almost any day to make an easy breakfast, lunch or dinner. 🍳 #krogerpartner

Simple Truth is Kroger’s affordable brand not limited to the heath food aisle. You can find these products all over the store next to the regular/non-organic products. In fact, Simple Truth is free from 101+ artificial preservatives and ingredients.

Some of my favorite Kroger Simple Truth products include Salads, Pan Bread, Shrimp, Eggs, and Orange Juice. Great quality at a reasonable price. Do not forget to get your coupon deals for Simple Truth products on the Kroger app. Use the code multiple times through the Simple Truth saving event, which ends February 5. Here is the link for the app: #kroger
