Welcome to September’s good4U Health Hotline Magazine. September is one of the most delightful months. It still feels like summer, but slowly opens the door to fall. September is the month we celebrate the gold-standard for healthy food – certified organic.
We celebrate organic year-round at Natural Grocers though, it’s an everyday thing for us. We’ve always carried 100% organic produce and we’ve been Certified Organic Food Handlers for over 10 years. Anything you purchase from our shelves is free of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives.
This month’s featured produce is grapes. Whether you are getting your daily dose of grapes through a handful of tasty fruit or a glass of wine, it is equally important to ensure they are organic. Grapes rank number 1 for residual pesticides in the dirty dozen list. Not to mention, organic is rooted in practices that nurture the health of both humans and the planet.
Why should you think zinc? For immunity, mental health and everything in between. With soil mineral depletion on the rise, micronutrients like zinc have declined in our food. This makes it more important than ever to ensure you are supplementing zinc as you may not be getting the proper nutrients from a healthy diet alone.
All of this, plus healthy fall recipes and featured deals on organic products, as always. Happy reading!
This classic salad is a little creamy, a little crunchy, and bursting with fresh fall fruit. It is simple to put together and can be served as part of a light family dinner or whipped up on the weekend for healthy lunches during the week.
Roasted beets are surprisingly sweet and delicious. Paired with a bright citrus dressing with a kick, this salad is wonderful any time of year. For a fun splash of color, try using a variety of fresh beets such as red, golden, and the curiously striped chioga.
