Long Island Health Food Stores

Here is a list of Long Island Health Food Stores from LI Holistic Health (also I would like to add Rita's Real Foods in Bayport, Live Island Cafe in Huntington, Organically Yours in Northport,
 It's Only Natural Food and Wellness Store in Bellport, Halsey's Green Thumb Farmer Market in Water Mill has many grocery items as well as, gluten free items, raw nuts, dried fruits, beans, rice, pasta, chips, cheeses and check out any other farmer's markets too) It's great to keep a list of Health Food Stores where you live or where you travel so you always have food options whether you are raw, macrobiotic, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, paleo, or whatever diet you personally follow.

When you travel look on-line for health food stores in the location you will be travelling. Also don't forget if you are travelling during the warmer months you can look to your local farmer's markets as well!

Molds on "travelling" foods

At the end of the "shipping" season and the start of the Long Island growing season, I started to think about all the mold growing on shipped produce. It is a LONG way from California to New York. That is where most organic fruit/veggies are from that come to NY after our growing season is over.

I'm not sure where the grains/dry beans and nuts are from as many times they are not labeled. These products are often moldy too.

If you have issues with mold this could be a real problem for your body. When we outwardly see mold growing it has already been growing on the food for some time.

Another reason to eat locally grown produce...or start growing your own garden/food.

Some foods that are affected are; all fruits and veggies, nuts, beans, grains, flours just about everything!

Also watch for tropical fruits, they also come a long way to most location, mangoes; pineapples, coconut, etc.(and these are often irradiated to get rid of any critters trying to hitch a ride to the US)
