Healthy Living

 Take a look in our store and discover our approach to healthy living.  Because not only do we have fresh and vibrant organic foods. But we also have a whole host of clean living groceries. And we have a full range of natural body care products, eco-friendly cleaning products and health care supplements. We like to think of ourselves as a healthy food store as much as a health food store. 

What’s healthy food to us ?

         To start with we are careful about the foods we source for the shop. We avoid heavily processed food whenever we can. Everything is GMO free. Most of our food is organic. We check the ingredients and provenance on everything we buy in. 

       There are a lot of foods which are  touted as cure-alls in the health food trade. And our customers all follow different diets. Everyone is different.  But to us, whatever your diet,  enjoying your food and eating as much fresh and well sourced food as you can,  can offer a foundation for healthy living.  Superfoods, health foods and supplements can be great to add on top. And we have plenty of them.  But we also pride ourselves on getting the basics right and offering a wide range of fresh, tasty , and vibrant everyday foods  

  And to us there is no way to cheat the system when it comes to us all being healthy in the long run. What’s  good for the environment can also  in the long run be good for us. That’s one reason why we are so keen on organic food, fresh foods, and sourcing all of our food carefully.  The more our suppliers put in, the more you get out. 

What’s healthy food to you ?

      At the end of the day, like anything in life, eating well can be a bit of an art form and can take at times a bit of discipline. But to us enjoying the  journey is just as important as the destination. Good food and celebration go hand in hand. We bake our own cakes and have some amazing dairy free ice creams. And we are at our happiest when our customers are. Learning to balance your own diet is a very individual thing, what works well for you might not work for someone else.

   And our goal is to support our customers in the choices they are making , as we realise that good health is something which everyone has to take their own responsibility for.  Helping you get started with the best quality and best sourced products  is our goal. We’ll always do our best to answer your questions, and if we don’t know we will try to find out.  In the end, We hope we can provide you with nutritious, fresh and delicious foods which you can enjoy, and keep you living a happy, healthy and active life. 

If in doubt ask around ? 

 If you are interested in healthy living, then shopping with us can be a great  choice. But don’t just take our word for it. Because over the years we’ve helped keep premiership footballers and a number of local athletes on their toes, and enjoying their sport for longer.  

Fab Flournoy the former head coach  at Newcastle eagles has been great customer over the years. In his late 40’s he was still setting the bar as a basketball player. He put a lot of that down to his plant-based diet, and his focus on adapting it to his needs at any time. He certainly kept us on our toes with questions about supplements. But he was always first in line on a Wednesday when our veg display went out. He liked to pick up a  regular pre-order of swiss chard  that he used for juicing. 

There was no one sadder than us when Fab left recently for Toronto. Thankfully he did a few quick promos for his favourite little shop before he left. Check them out on our facebook page and follow us on social media to see what’s new in store each week.  His smile, and his recommendations, we suppose, say more than we can.

Why not pay us a visit and see what Fab loved so much about our small community shop ?
