In a world where drive-thru hamburger joints and $1 pizza slices
outnumber farmers markets and grocery stores, eating healthy can
be a challenge. Even when you make up your mind to resist deep-fried
temptation and go for a salad, you too often end up in sticker-shock.
Trust me, I know how this goes — I’ve been that person in shock

products to fit your needs on the site and they have a robust
Paleo and grain-free section, to boot.
The site includes the option to “shop by” specific dietary
needs and certifications. You can filter the catalog by values
including certified organic, non-GMO, hypoallergenic, raw and
