Hi all, fresh-foods-fruits-vegetables

Almost the weekend again. Time for some fun. Before that though, lets talk about Vegetarianism.

Well it is a choice that suits my current lifestyle (wait didn’t I eat chicken yesterday?!). Um, for the most part it isn’t all that hard to eat fruits and vegetables, it’s just hard to buy them (I don’t wanna go back to Safeways).

I bet people would eat more fresh vegetables if there was a drive thru grocery store. That would be convenient. I can imagine sitting in line (with my grocery list), making some poor sap run the isles while I moan and groan that “these are the freshest strawberries you could find?”

That store would have disgruntled employees, I know this……

Wow, I just googled drive thru grocery store – Someone stole my idea!!! Smart cats….but, they only sell canned goods and staple items it seems – I guess they knew about the strawberries.

Nice thing about vegetarianism is that there is still many options available in the ‘fast food’ department. Subway and Pita Pit still work for ya, you just need to mind the meats (ie. don’t freakin’ order them). Actually, Extreme Pita proudly displays an “only veggie side” of their grills (as to please the veggies out there).

I applaud people who can abstain from one of the food groups, the problem is some of that animal product is just too tasty. Don’t pass it up – pass it over!!

Ya’ll be safe, eat well, be merry. Till next time,

W with 6 eh’s – Y, because I said so……..

Harvest Haven

Over the past couple of years, my family and I, have been making the switch over to organic products. However, I do agree with the argument made in the post, Organic my A$$, you do need to be careful in where you are buying the products from. However, I have found that Harvest Haven, a locally owned and operated store just outside of Lethbridge, Alberta has a wide variety of organic products. Also, what they can’t grow on their farm, they will purchase from other local farmers in the area or within Canada and if necessary they will buy from abroad.

The livestock that are raised right on the farm are done so in a low stress environment and they slaughter only one animal. They do not do mass production, so the only downside they will not always have full stock of the meats. However, this is also a positive because you know the animals are not being mass produced. They sell, beef, buffalo, lamb, chicken and turkey. They also sell, fruits and vegetables, dairy and grain products and dried fruits, nuts and seeds. My favorite thing to buy, is the strawberries in the summer and also their steaks.

One thing, I really enjoy about buying from this store, is that I know that I am getting excellent quality foods, the staff are really helpful and willing to answer any questions that you have and also I like to support the local farmers.

Harvest Haven is opened Sunday through to Friday from 9am to 6pm. They are located at  RR 8 – Site 22 – Comp 1, Station Main, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 4P4.
