Where To Buy Organic, Vegan?

I’m often asked… where do you buy healthy, organic, vegan food?

That’s a good question, because many people aren’t familiar with the growing number of stores, both online and off that offer a large selection.

Here are a few of my favorites (and some recommendations from friends):

Wild Oats – www.WildOats.com
Stores in most cities throughout US. Not everything is organic or vegan, but they carry an excellent selection. Has better vegan baked goods selection than most others.

Whole Foods – www.WholeFoods.com
Stores in most cities throughout the US. Not everything is organic or vegan, but they carry an excellent selection.

Trader Joes – www.TraderJoes.com
Stores in many cities, expanding quickly. Need to look closely at labels, not all products are healthy, but they carry many healthy brand lines and low prices.

Natures First Law – RawFood.com
Large selection of raw/living foods, beauty, supplements, books, videos, events and appliances. Run by well known raw food advocate, author and speaker David Wolfe. Has low price guarantee. Staff is mostly raw.

Many towns now have local co-ops, buying groups, farms or clubs that purchase organic foods in bulk for their members. Check your local natural or health magazines, newspapers or local organizations to find one near you or visit: Find A CSA Near You

To your best health!

Rebounding: Easy, Life-Enhancing Exercise

Posted on August 27th, 2005 in Uncategorized by Vegan Raw Diet Advocate Comments Off on Rebounding: Easy, Life-Enhancing Exercise

We all know that activity is essential to optimal health and weight right?

One of the more well rounded and effective exercise routines is rebounding. One of the main benefits is drainage of your lymph system which rids your body of toxins and waste build-up. Without activity, your body gets clogged up and is open to development of disease, illness and obesity. Rebounding is very effective in activating your lymph system.

Read my article on the benefits of rebounding for health and reviews of top rebounder equipment.

For your best health!

Want to lose weight? Eat raw!

Posted on August 20th, 2005 in Uncategorized by Vegan Raw Diet Advocate 1 Comment »

You may know that I’ve been vegan for over 12 years. I had success with losing weight… in fact, in addition to the obvious health benefits, it’s one of the reasons I decided to transition to a vegan lifestyle.

When I decided to transition further to a raw diet, something interesting happened… I lost more weight! 12 pounds in 2 weeks to be exact. This was interesting because I actually ate more food than when I was vegan. There is a reason for this and I’ll it share with you in a future post.

Here are some interesting and very rewarding benefits about transitioning to a vegan/raw food lifestyle:

  • You can eat as much as you desire and not gain weight
  • Your body will find it’s optimal weight naturally
  • You can choose from a wide variety of delicious foods and never get bored
  • You’ll have abundant energy
  • Your taste buds will come alive
  • You’ll lose as much weight as you need naturally
  • You will become more aware of what your body wants (and needs)
  • Your thoughts will be sharp and clear
  • Most if not all your aches, pains and irritations will go away
  • You’ll lose taste for unhealthy foods and crave fresh, living foods

These are just some of the benefits I’ve experienced recently. I feel blessed for this experience and will share more in future posts.

Blessings,
