I like online shopping. When it comes to shopping for my groceries I tend to float between online and regular shopping because I enjoy the process of seeing the food I buy. However, during this busy time around Christmas, I do a lot more online shopping to save time. And there’s nothing quite like someone bringing the groceries inside for you (that’s my favourite part).
Nut-less Chocolate Protein Balls
150 grams sunflower seeds
100 grams pitted dates
20 grams cranberries (or sultanas)
40-50 grams cocoa powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp psyllium husks (or wheat germ)
2 tbsp honey
¼ tsp vanilla extract
Coconut for coating
1. Process sunflower seeds into a powder
Thermomix: speed 9 for 10 seconds
2. Add dates and cranberries and process until combined.
Thermomix: speed 8 for 5 seconds
3. Add the remaining ingredients and combine in a processer
Thermomix: speed 8 for 10 seconds
4. Roll into small balls and coat with fine desiccated coconut
These choc balls are very sweet and rich so I made them small and all the kids enjoyed them. Win.
Woolworths Online: Features I like
Register or login
Once registered, it’s then a process of filling the trolley virtually.
I search and add to my list whenever I have a spare minute anywhere I have internet connection.
The feature I like the most is being able to sort grocery items by unit price so I can easily see the cheapest items the most expensive. For example, below I am searching for bread and have sorted it by ‘unit price low to high’.
The other big draw for me is the Jamie Olivia recipes. I’m a big fan of his style of cooking (because much of it is achievable for a cook like me). I can easily print recipes and also add the ingredients needed directly to the trolley. For example, this Grilled Fruit Pavlova Recipe.
From the ingredient list, I can add whatever I need from the list directly to the trolley (this also allows for items I already have in the cupboard).
Another feature is the gift range you can have delivered directly to anywhere in Australia.
Selecting ingredients with my own hands is something I enjoy, and I will continue to do in the future. However, I love the flexibility of online shopping, especially around this time of year. It saves me time and meshes around my life.
