View Full Version : Suggestions on what to purchase
12-26-2006, 08:41 AM
My grandmother is in town from FL for the holidays and she is going to take me on a trip to a health food store. I don't go often and I have never been to the one she will be taking me to. Does anyone have any suggestion of what I should purchase? I definately want some seaweed...and probably some sproutable things. But, knowing my situation and health and such (I realize that some probably do not know), does anyone have any specific suggestions?
thank you very much!!

I imagine that would be a difficult question to answer. Specific suggestions would be organic fruit that's available and affordable (if your HFS sells organic fruit). Go with your tastes and your budget, keeping whatever your health issues are, in mind.

One of the things I bought that helped me the first few days were the Lara Bars. I just wanted something sweet and NOT fruit. Which is funny because the Banana Cookie one is fruit and it's delicious and those first couple of days would have been really hard without those Lara Bar.

I would find recipes that I want to make and then make a list of items I don't have. Maybe sun-dried tomatoes; organic powdered carob... stuff like that.
I know there's a new HUGE Whole Foods and a Wild Oats in Ct. Will you be going to one of them? If I remember correctly, they're within a few blocks of each other.

thank you very much for the suggestions.
The closest thing to a recipe that I make on a regular basis would be green smoothies. I just generally prefer to eat everything as is for some reason...
But I was thinking more along the lines of things that I wouldn't normally get to try (I generally only have apples, oranges, bananas, greens, and .69 cent avocados because of our budget...although I do get other little things to try every now and then...like things on the sale produce rack)
but for the hfs...I don't know just maybe things you have tried and really enjoy. I want to try to add some sprouts to my diet and more greens (hence the seaweed, I LOVE seaweeds.) even though I am content with fruits and greens its just that I can't afford as much fresh fruit as I need sometimes..even though that is what I will still mostly eat.
(P.S. Sorry for my lack of good grammar, i am very distracted at the moment)
Thank you again!
