Hi, I just discovered a store here in Newmarket, Ontario called Nature's Emporium. It is GREAT. I was having a hard time finding some ingredients for my 'Kind Life' recipes but I found them very easily at Nature's Emporium! I was so excited. Loblaws Supercentres have an Organic Aisle where I found a few ingredients also. Bulk Barn also sells some items. Good luck.
Loblaws and Real Canadian Superstores have a good supply of organic items and in their "Blue Menu" line. Are you in the Toronto area? If so try Whole Foods as you can find alot of items to make the recipes from the Kind Diet book. Also the St. Lawrence Market has alot of organic items too.
I am finding it more difficult to find the "healthy" foods. I spend my time travelling from store to store and either something isn't in stock, they have no idea what I'm talking about or the cost is outrageous. I'm in Nova Scotia so all we have is the Atlantic Superstore, Sobeys and a small Planet Organic that is about an hour return trip from where I live. I would think I died and went to heaven if we could get a Whole Foods somewhere close by.
Vanessa, where are you in Ontario? I go to fortinos, most have a section with the food we want. I ask them to get things in that I need. Every couple months I travel the half hour drive to Oakville where the whole foods is and pick upi stuff I can't get around here.
I eat what is available to me, try not to get caught up in driving around trying to find everything. Talk to store managers about getting things in,
Hi there, i'm in the same boat. Can anyone recommend a site or database available that might list what the 'staples' items you should have in your pantry. I would like to go out once a month or so and spend the time to get the hard to find items. I'm just starting this 'life' approach but being a truly typically 'canadian family' I am so not familiar with a lot of the vegetables, sea vegie and stuff. I would like to be as prepared as possible to avoid any pitfalls!
Whole foods and Fortinos are great places to go. The only Whole foods near me is in oakville which is about 20-30 minutes away from where I live so I only get there once in a while but Fortinos is a great alternative =]
