For those of us missing their local Whole Foods and struggling to find heathy staples locally, iHerb is a lifesaver.
Product prices are reasonable — on par with US grocery stores — and orders land on the doorstep in a few days (shipping rates are low and often free!).
But what to buy? Though the website is uninspiring, keen-eyed Hong Kong Moms have honed in on the best picks:

Don’t forget to check out the trial/sample section for special deals. Another bonus is the incentive program — after your first order, you receive a discount code to share with others newbies. Each time someone uses your code, they save money on their order, and you get credit. Not a bad deal. (This is my code: HSF558) if you want to try it out!)
