Groceries of Wellness Champions

Groceries of Wellness Champions

Many people don’t have time to research the how and why, and would prefer to get right to what– so I’ve decided to put together a grocery list so you can see the kinds of food we use to prepare our weekly meals.  Below is the grocery list of two wellness champions.

All food is organic and non-GMO, and when in season, all the below will be purchased from local sources, if possible.  Unless noted, this stuff isn’t from cans or jars 😉  Get busy preparing life!

How We Roll

This food will be prepared in a variety of ways – stir fried, baked, fried, fermented, stewed, etc.  Coming up with new ways to prepare whole food is part of the fun in wellness.  We are constantly trying new combinations and new ways to prepare our food.  See something missing?  Tell us!

In season, we visit orchards once a month and farmer’s markets as often as possible.  Occasionally the urge to eat rotting flesh is too much.  When this happens, we usually go to a restaurant of repute and defile ourselves that way.  Stupid Pizza.

To Your Health, Wellness Champions!
