Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. this week, my hubby and I got some stomach bug, so I’ve been wiped out.
I did want to let you know about the grand opening of Natural Grocers in Denton, TX. If you have never been nor heard of them, check out their site to find the one closest to you. I love this place and will drive the extra miles, past Sprout’s & Whole Foods, to get the best bang for my buck.
Natural Grocers only sells certified organic produce, naturally raised meats, and in my opinion, have the best prices when it comes to their packaged goods.
I’ve been hooked from the moment their first store opened up and it’s not hard to see why. Here’s a note from their Director of Marketing:
“We have been around since 1955 and are cornerstoned in Customer Service as well as Nutritional Education. We strive to offer a very large inventory of all natural and organic groceries, dairy items, bulk items, prepacked items, frozen, all natural raised and fed meats and poultry, all natural and GF supplements and a large body care section for the shoppers that are looking for all natural and environmental products at the some of the lowest industry prices.”
I love this store for so many reasons: 1) it’s small so it feels like a neighborhood market, 2) everyone is super friendly there, and 3) they are anti-GMO! Yeah buddy!
My crunchy friend, Casey, went with Emma and me and we were like kids in candy stores! We went up and down every aisle, checked and rechecked the fresh, beautiful produce, and were finally able to select our purchases. I got two Against the Grain pizzas for dinner that night, along with fresh toppings, and Casey ended up with a case of Kombucha for $1.65/bottle! That is a freakin’ steal…that stuff is normally $3.49 a pop, so she totally loaded up. We were both loving the Grand Opening specials, that’s for sure.
Also, this new store has a gathering area and shiny, lime green Demo kitchen. I can definitely foresee some gluten-free/paleo cooking demos coming, and can’t wait to be #1 in line! Their first event was entitled ‘Bacon Brigade’ and was slated for last night, but sadly I had to miss. You know I love me some bacon and was bummed I missed the sampling. Oh well, there’s always next time.
There you have it, my quick recap of a health food store (that’s finally close to me) that I’m in lurve with!
Have you ever been to a Vitamin Cottage or Natural Grocers, or is this our first time hearing about them? Check them out when you get a chance or request one in your area, you won’t be disappointed!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, and feels better if you’ve been sick like me.
