September 28, 2007, Newsletter Issue #66: Health Food Stores

Tip of the Week

While most of us duck into the local chain supermarket to buy most of our groceries, there may be a healthier alternative right around the corner: a health food store. Health food stores are not dark little holes-in-the-wall only for strict vegetarians or people with “crazy” eating habits – they can be a great location for anyone to shop for healthier foods than what you may find in the local supermarket.

In fact, some health food and specialty stores today are positively upscale, selling not only organic produce, meat, and dairy products, but with a plethora of baked goods, scrumptious ready-to-eat meals at to-go counters, and posh bath and spa sections with a variety of health and beauty products.

At health food or specialty stores, you also may be able to find items that you may not be able to locate in the grocery section of the Super Wal-Mart. For example, many specialty stores sell myriad gluten-free products, unusual produce, all-natural pet food, homeopathic remedies, specialty juices and coffee, and “alternative” baking supplies such as spelt, rice, and potato flower and carob.

Some items at health food stores may seem more pricey than similar items at the grocery store, but health food and specialty stores are committed to a high level of quality and to providing healthy and wholesome alternatives to “regular” grocery items. You can be sure that your money is going towards a better lifestyle. To find a health food store near you, consult your phone book or do a Google search on “health food stores your city”.
