People have been asking me where I like to shop or where they can buy their foods and health products/supplements so I thought I’d make a little list of places I love and recommend :-)
Planet Organic https://www.planetorganic.com/ for Organic foods, health and beauty. None of their fresh produce is conventionally grown (meaning everything is organic) and most of it is locally sourced. I like to get my dry products from here too, my grains, quinoa, brown rice pastas, nuts, nut butters etc.. Always look forward to food shopping here. They don’t really stock much animal produce like meat fish etc if any at all but I quite like that. They do deliver and you can place an order online if you don’t have time but I always prefer going there. See here for their list of stores: http://www.planetorganic.com/blog/stores/
Borough Market http://boroughmarket.org.uk/ Open from Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10am to 5pm and 6pm on Friday located in SE1 right opposite London Bridge tube station. One of my favourite things about London is this market! A vast area covered by traders who share great knowledge, love and expertise in foods of all diversity and quality. I stock up on my grass fed beef and beef bones from WILD BEEF. Lamb from RHUG ESTATE just next door, offal and organ meats from GINGER PIG, my raw dairy from HOOK & SON, spices from SPICE MOUNTAIN and sometimes vegetables from CHEGWORTH VALLEY although they’re not all organic so I keep my veg to planet organic and make this my trip to stock up on animal produce which can be kept in the freezer for months.
Riverford Organic for those of you who struggle with time there is http://www.riverford.co.uk/ I have used them for months and highly recommend if you work full time and want to eat healthy, fresh, organic produce, locally grown straight from the farm (they do come a bit muddy and I love that) you can create your own boxes and set up an account so that you have a box delivered the same day every week automatically. Have a look through the website you can customise your box and choose what you want in there or go for a seasonal box and they’ll give you a mix of things. I loved creating my own.
The Nutri Centre http://www.nutricentre.com/ my heaven for vitamins, minerals, other supplements, health and beauty products and books. I want to cry when people tell me they get their supplements from Holland & Barrett or Boots :-( :-( !!! A lot of the brands they stock are rubbish and full of crap fillers and all kinds of nasty. The Nutri Centre stock really good quality brands that I would recommend to patients/clients. I get all my school books from there and I love talking to the nutritionists on site about all their supplements and any advice. Just another place that makes me happy :-)
Ainsworth’s http://www.ainsworths.com/ based on
36 New Cavendish St, London W1G 8UF
if you’re into homeopathy, flower essences, spirituality, healing… This is a new discovery of mine (although it’s been around for years and years and years) I absolutely love going. I have had some of the most exciting and profound conversations in there on astrology, healing and spirituality without the fear of sounding like a total quack. The people that work there have a great knowledge and passion for it. I was prescribed a blend of flower essences made on site by a lovely lady who works there and I like to stock up on my bath oils, incense stuff, essential oils and crystal sprays when I visit.
