Taylor tries making a 5 Minute Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Mug Cake at the Honest Weight Food Co-op Teaching Kitchen. AKA, An excellent dish for those looking for a quick chocolate fix that you could certainly classify as healthy.
But healthy or not, what it’s really all about is the A+ COOL FACTOR of Honest Weight’s Bulk Department, where you can bring your own containers and fill up whatever amount of over 1,000 different ingredients to use in your own kitchen. Buying in bulk is more cost effective, less wasteful and gives you access to products you otherwise wouldn’t ordinarily come across in your daily grocery shopping activities.
If you haven’t visited Honest Weight Food Co-op yet, our Squad highly recommends a trip to their location in Albany. Whether you’re buying bulk, shopping fresh, local produce, or ordering something from their café, you will not leave hungry (or unhappy).
