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.

NaturalZing – NaturalZing.com
Offers large selection of raw, vegan and organic foods, cooking supplies, personal care, and supplements. Staff is mostly raw.

Oraganic – Oraganic.com
Large selection of organic foods and sweets, vegan, raw foods, health and beauty, food bars and home and garden. Well priced, excellent customer service.

VeganEssentials – VeganEssentials.com
Large selection of vegan foods, snacks, clothes, personal care, accessories, supplements and more.

Vegan Store – VeganStore.com
Top rated veggie store with large selection of foods, clothes, personal care, gifts, accessories, pet and related products.

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

Let me know if you have others to add, along with your experiences.

To your best health!

Thanksgiving Feast

Posted on November 25th, 2006 in family,meals,photos,recipes,thanksgiving by Vegan Raw Diet Advocate Comments Off on Thanksgiving Feast

Here are pictures of the recipes in the previous post from the Thanksgiving feast I shared with friends this year. The dishes consisted of kale avocado salad, jicima potatoes and gravy, veggie stuffing, succulent cranberry sauce, fall acorn squash soup, pumpkin pudding and sweet! sweet potato pie. These recipes were all delicious, easy to make and enjoyed by everyone. They’re great to make for all your holiday guests… they’ll never know they’re vegan and raw!

Included are some additional pictures of the Thanksgiving meal at our local ‘Raw Friday’ restaurant prepared by Chef Moon at the Blue Nile Cafe in Tempe, Arizona. The meal was outstanding and included a spicy spinach and avocado soup, side salad with tangy dressing and a Thanksgiving Platter with a rosemary veggie loaf, walnut raisin and celery stuffing, sweet and tart cranberry sauce and mashed ‘potatoes’. Delicious!

I’m very grateful for sharing this celebration with friends. One of the greatest gifts in life is the expression of gratitude. It not only feels good, but also brings joy and more of what you wish into your life. Try it and I’m sure you’ll agree.

All the best for your health and happy Thanksgiving wishes!
