Traveling to commitments offers a very real snack adventure. In the Pacific Northwest Natural Grocers has become a favorite stop to quench the thirst, grab some munchies, while staying on the healthier track. The brand is nationwide with a lovely selection of organic fruits and vegetables. We recently hit the trail from Spokane Washington where the selection slightly varies to Whitefish Montana and even has a beautiful demo classroom kitchen. We often search for a few specific ingredients to be included in our snacks, Turmeric, Ginger, Lemon, Sea Salt, Fresh Fruit, , raw nuts and something that may trigger personal growth or learning.
This visit a book nearly jumped off the shelf as I walked by called "The Myth of Stress" by Andrew Bernstein, his title focus "Where Stress Really comes from and how to live a happier & healthier life." The back cover includes praise comments by Mark Hyman M.D.; Aaron T beck MD, founder of Cognitive Therapy, Kathleen DesMaisons Ph.D author of "Potatoes Not Prozac".
Well, with many life challenges we all go through, who doesn't have stress in their daily life, I certainly am not exempt..so the book went in the bag and joined my lovely collection to enjoy more then once. Thank you; Natural Grocers for being a well rounded store.
