I have been doing more and more of this organic thing but it was really a pain and expensive. About a year ago they put in a whole foods grocery store down the street, I love that place. Not only are most things there organic but the price on similar products was found to be significantly cheaper than Safeway. I also love a place here called Trader Joes. I can get organic chickens there for $1.59 a pound and a dozen large organic brown eggs for only $2.99 If you have either of these stores around you should do yourself a favor and check them out.

I am pretty sure there is something of that nature around here but nothing large.

I remember when I was working at bowling center and a lady asked me if we had organic food in our snack bar. I told her that we didnt and apologized.

She told me how stupid this place was for not having it and how stupid I was.

If that is your kind of food then thats cool, I have no problem with that but don't expect food like that to be at a bowling center.

IT IS A BOWLING ALLEY LADY!

ok im done.

Cage free farm fresh eggs are the way to go. Taste much better. Organic veggies and fruits also taste better. We have an Akins natural food mart here, plus another smaller local health food mart.

I can do the organic thing for not much more than the regular stuff out there with the exception of of beef. Not only is it better for you but it tastes WAY better than that shit I buy at Safeway or Alberson's. MOF when I do all my shopping there I swear I spend less. As an example a half gallon of organic soy milk at Safeway is $4.99 I can get the same thing at whole foods for $2.99

"This is a good place to see some mid-40's lesbians."

"Uh, why would I want to see a mid-40's lesbian?"

"I dunno... but, if you ever did, this is the place to come."

The place my buddy stopped at was a Sunflower Market. Here's their link... www.sunflowermarkets.com

There's a Trader Joe's not too far from my home. They send me these silly fliers every once in awhile. My neighbors are real high on it.. but, I've never wandered in.

Our Natural Food Store is a local cooperative. Unfortunately their prices really, really suck. It's ridiculously expensive. I hate to wish for a big chain like Whole Foods Markets or Wild Oats to come in and put them out of business, but the place is so mismanaged that I almost wish it would happen.

In the summer the wife and I buy all our produce from the local farmer's market, which has quite a few organic growers. Organic is definitely the way to go.

The other good thing about organic farming is that it's providing a niche market for the small family-based farms to still succeed in the increasingly huge agri dominated industry.

The Sunflower Market I went to had a huge wine selection. I don't know jack about wine, tho.

They had a nice beer selection, too. They didn't have aisle and aisles of it like they did wine.. but, they had some brands you wouldn't usually run across in a normal grocery store.

I go for Tazo brambleberry tea [the best potable on earth] and St. Albray cheese. Sometimes they put prime rib on the hot bar. 5.99 a pound for cooked prime rib. Yummy. Their everything bread is awesome too.
The other great supermarket in St. Louie [Kirkwood, actually] is World Foods. Every aisle is a country. England, Germany, Greece, Turkey, China, Cambodia, Korea, India, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Lebanon, etc., etc. Everything from gyro meat, to weisswurst, to 80 kinds of salted, smoked, or fresh fish, to Ribena. Wines and beers from every country. Even Durian if you are a masochist.

Whole Foods has great food, but it's not convenient for us. I'll go there occasionally for a smoothie or to get some already-prepared food, but not often. Also, I boycotted them for several months since they have horrible parking at the nearby store. The last time I was there, I was waiting for someone to pull out of the only empty spot on the lot, and some old lady backed her car up toward me and kept backing until I retreated, and then she took the spot.

The last time I was there, I was waiting for someone to pull out of the only empty spot on the lot, and some old lady backed her car up toward me and kept backing until I retreated, and then she took the spot.

The sketch:

(Sketch opens with a pan across Bolton. Voice of reporter.)

Voice Over: This is a frightened city. Over these houses, over these streets hangs a pall of fear. Fear of a new kind of violence which is terrorizing the city. Yes, gangs of old ladies attacking defenceless fit young men.

(Film of old ladies beating up two young men; then several grannies walking aggressively along street, pushing passers-by aside.)

Hell's Grannies

First Young Man: Well they come up to you, like, and push you - shove you off the pavement, like. There's usually four or five of them.

Second Young Man: Yeah, this used to be a nice neighbourhood before the old ladies started moving in. Nowadays some of us daren't even go down to the shops.

Third Young Man: Well Mr Johnson's son Kevin, he don't go out any more. He comes back from wrestling and locks himself in his room.

(Film of grannies harrassing an attractive girl.)

Voice Over: What are they in it for, these old hoodlums, these layabouts in lace?

First Granny: (voice over) Well it's something to do isn't it?

Second Granny: (voice over) It's good fun.

Third Granny: (voice over) It's like you know, well, innit, eh?

Voice Over: Favourite targets for the old ladies are telephone kiosks.

(Film of grannies carrying off a telephone kiosk; then painting slogans on a wall.)

Policeman: (coming up to them) Well come on, come on, off with you. Clear out, come on get out of it. (they clear off, he turns to camera) We have a lot of trouble with these oldies. Pension day's the worst - they go mad. As soon as they get their hands on their money they blow it all on milk, bread, tea, tin of meat for the cat.

(Cut to cinema.)

Cinema Manager: Yes, well of course they come here for the two o'clock matinee, all the old bags out in there, especially if it's something like 'The Sound of Music'. We get seats ripped up, hearing aids broken, all that sort of thing.

(A policeman hustles two grannies out of the cinema. Cut to reporter walking along street.)

Reporter: The whole problem of these senile delinquents lies in their complete rejection of the values of contemporary society. They've seen their children grow up and become accountants, stockbrokers and even sociologists, and they begin to wonder if it is all really...(disappears downwards rapidly) arggh!

( Shot of two grannies replacing manhole cover. Cut to young couple.)

Fourth Young Man: Oh well we sometimes feel we're to blame in some way for what our gran's become. I mean she used to be happy here until she, she started on the crochet.

Reporter: (off-screen) Crochet?

Fourth Young Man: Yeah. Now she can't do without it. Twenty balls of wool a day, sometimes. If she can't get the wool she gets violent. What can we do about it?

(Film of grannies on motorbikes roaring down streets and through a shop. One has 'Hell's Grannies' on her jacket.)

Voice Over: But this is not just an old ladies' town. There are other equally dangerous gangs - such as the baby snatchers.

(Film of five men in baby outfits carrying off a young man from outside a shop. Cut to distraught wife.)

Wife: I just left my husband out here while I went in to do some shopping and I came back and he was gone. He was only forty-seven.

Voice Over: And on the road too, vicious gangs of keep left signs.

(Film: two keep-left signs attack a vicar.)

Colonel: (coming up and stopping them) Right, fight, stop it. This film's got silly. Started off with a nice little idea about grannies attacking young men, but now it's got silly. This man's hair is too long for a vicar too. These signs are pretty badly made. Right, now for a complete change of mood.

Well, I don't really buy eggs. It's getting to where I don't eat meat very often at all either. I do eat chicken, but as far as red meat, barely ever anymore. Not to sound like a hippie or anything, just don't really have a taste for it as much as I used to.

I love Steak and Pork but I try to keep my intake down to once a week. Those pork shanks on the rotisserie rule.

Considering you don't eat much meat going organic should be pretty inexpensive if you find the right place. I was reading an article awhile back that was saying that organic demand is through the roof and there are many farms going that direction now to meet the demand. That is bringing down the price and I got to tell you I have noticed a big drop off in what I have to pay to get it here now.

1. The World Foods is not a chain. It is a great idea, primarily aimed at serving the immigrant population. It's geared towards people who are used to buying things in another land. They have, say, German versions of Kellogs Frosted Flakes or British versions of Skippy Peanut Butter, mexican mayonaise. 'Versions' isn't the right term, because it's not a knock off, it's actual Kelloggs or Skippy or whatever products, packaged for foreign lands.
2. Yes the Tazo comes from Whole Foods.

Speaking of healthy dishes I am sitting down to some home made fully organic chicken soup right now with onions, parsnips, carrots, celery, 4 heads of garlic, roasted Anaheim chilli's, bokchoy, fresh basil, cillantro and mint thrown in to boot. I made a huge pot of this and was getting a bit bored with it being too healthy so I threw in a little smoked duck and 1 smoked brat I had left over from a party I threw this weekend. This soup is out of this world good.

It got sunlight, which has vitamin D in it. It scratched arround in the dirt, which has minerals, it ate a fair amount of greens as it foraged arround, which have tons of vitamins in them.

What did the store Chicken egg get?

It got a 12"x12" cage to live in for about 6 months with artificial lighting on it so it would only sleep about 4 hours a day. It got fed a high protein mash that probably was loaded with ingredients or hormones that would stimulate egg production.

What happens to this chicken after the egg factory is done with it? Why it gets sold to Campbells soup of course but that is just the meat. The by products of the Chicken usually end up in dog food.

"Chicken By'product meal" is the government term for it, and many dog foods pass themselves off as "premium" simply because "meat" is the #1 ingredient, but "Chicken byproduct" is the #1 ingredient. YUMMMMY stuff for the dog.

No, but there is a huge market for healthier fast food, that is for sure.

If you don't believe me, just take a look at the Jerod Subway ad campaign.
Heh... was at my neighbor's and one of those commercials comes on... my neighbor says, "If he was eating Subway to lose weight, what the f*ck was he eating before?" My response was, "Well, judging by the pictures... pretty much everything in sight."

Agreed, but the premise of my post was that the marketplace is ready for healthy alternatives to McD's and BK. Subways marketing department is just tapping into all the guilt that the fast food feasters have and stearing that guilt towards increased market share and higher profits.

Yeah and they all suck. The bread is also terrible. They cover up the mushiness doughy crap they call bread with stupid names like "Parmesan Oregano Herb" and "Asiago Garlic". I don't want that, I want bread. White or wheat, firm, with little taste to it. I want to taste the meat, vegetables, and spices/oils, not the bread.

they have to keep the preparation "formulas" simple enough for dumasses to prepare them.

This is the real reason why I don't go to Subways anymore. Once, I was ordering for my family, four DIFFERENT sandwiches.

I knew that the dumass couldn't keep track of four different sandwiches so I say, I will walk you through it one at a time. The POS insisted on taking 2 SW's with her. I g ive, No mayo on the Sour dough, and mayo on the white.

She looks at me with that dum stare and proceeds to wipe a big swath of mayo on both SW's.

Thats it, I said "FUG IT< you just can't listen can you?" I bailed and have never been back.

Whole Foods? Good bread & a great salad bar + they're pretty good to their employees. I think they get discounts on tattoo's + buy one piercing, get another body part pierced, free.
Locally, good selection of cheese, organics, etc...but the O.P. store can't carry wine & beer. When I lived in Texas, it was "instant picnic" at Whole Foods. I'd just buy a loaf of bread, a jug of wine, fruit, some cheese, salami + carrot cake and head out for Brazos Bend State Park to dodge alligators & coral snakes.

Their soups are outstanding, they have some really different stuff. I got some pizza their once that rocked too. I get other things I simply can't get anywhere else like fresh organic okra. Hell I can't find any okra period unless it's frozen. The bulk organic foods rock, their cheaper than buying the regular stuff in a box or bag and the quality is really very good.

5 teams but 4 likely teams. I have won every game Priest has been out just think what I would have had if he was playing. I just hope I am not the odd man out, if I am I will remember that game I lost by one because I didn't replace Shokey after we lost our dog. On the up side I am still the scoring leader.

I used to be a vegan in my late teens. The only meat I would devour was fish. I did this for a couple of years, and although I was healthy, it was very difficult to do. It takes an enormous amount of dedication and perserverance to eat nothing but veggies, fruits, whole grains, and fish.

After awhile, when I would see someone eating a hamburger or BBQ- I would get all excited like a teenage boy with a fresh copy of Playboy. And then Wild Oats came along, and I was introduced to the world of organic foods. I gave up being a vegan- and started eating organics....now, I'm back to eating anything.

Anyways, it used to be organics were pretty damn expensive, but the best way to get more bang for your buck was to do the bulk section at Whole Foods and Wild Oats. Get yourself some cheap canisters, and fill up in the bulk section- they have bulk for just about anything: cereals, grains, rice, soup mix, chili mix, etc. It is an excellent means to get organic foods while saving a lot of dough. Today, however, organic foods have come a long ways, and in a lot of cases- organic foods matches or beats your regular grocery store items. You just have to look....

Actually I preferd living in Oregon where there are lots of organic farms in the area I lived that were dirt cheap. They had a farm out there called BeeBee's that had the best tomatoes I have ever had.
