Health Food Store Shopping
Organic Food for Quality and Flavor
Interview with Sarah

Sarah Buys Organic For Hummus, Salads & Smoothies
I started shopping at a health food store about five years ago because I started to do research about the pesticides in our food and the commercial way of producing products, and it really started to scare me. So I wanted to know where my food was coming from and what was going into it. When I first started shopping at a health food store, I basically experimented with products that I had seen either online from different blogs or heard about from friends. It was kind of a trial and error process. And as far as produce went, I just went with what I used to buy conventionally and I’ve gone from there and I’ve grown. My list has grown over the years.

The way I justify spending more money at a health food store is because you know that it’s good for your body, and since I’ve started shopping at a health food store, I’ve become significantly less sick so less trips to the doctor – that’s great. And also I split it up 50/50. I buy the products that I know I can't get anywhere else here, and then if there’s something that isn’t on the dirty dozen list or whatnot, you can buy it at maybe a Trader Joe’s or something a little bit less expensive. But there’s definitely a way to make it work.

I mainly eat a vegan diet, but again, I don’t like to call it that. I just try to avoid dairy and eggs just because of the research, again, that I've done – and meat, of course. And health food stores are great because I can find things that taste delicious and I never feel like I’m sacrificing anything.

When I’m at home, I’m a creature of habit, so lots of hummus and organic vegetables, salads, smoothies – pretty simple stuff because when you're cooking for one, it’s the easier the better. When I’m home with my family, though, back in New Hampshire, I whip up all different kinds of concoctions and just try different healthy recipes that I find online, my main source of new ideas. For recipes, I find that blogs are the best way to share information with each other and find ideas, and to see what other people are experimenting with.

One thing I discovered once I started shopping at health food stores, is that I love coconuts. You can't usually find those at regular grocery stores, and there’s nothing better than a young coconut – drinking the delicious water and scooping out the meat. I love Tom’s Natural Toothpaste. It’s like, the best stuff ever. I can't really use Crest anymore because it tastes too sweet because they add sugar to it.
