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.

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
