It looks so ordinary that you could overlook this treasure trove of organic goods. Thrash Metal can keep you awake but an organic lifestyle can keep you healthy and help the environment too. I've been into health food shops since Queen rocked us but I got seriously into an organic existence through a partner forever ago. Whilst he has some medical problems and isn't Hercules, his skin is always clear, his teeth are white and his hair is a shiny black. I think he has an organic guitar as well.
Mrs Flannery's is a one stop grocery shop unless you need nappies or contraception. They have everything from organic meats to farm fresh produce. There's a delicatessan section, a vitamin section, a cosmetic section amongst others. There's rows of organic ailes and supermarket trollies and easy access parking.
If you are pregnant, they'll help you with that heart burn. If you have a baby, they'll take you from gripe water to food. There's no such thing as organic breast formula, so try to breast feed your young baby because mother's milk is straight from Heaven and it sets you up for life. It's also free and you don't have to bother with bottles.
You can get your organic wraps and booties from Northey St Markets and I dip into ebay for things like sheets and pillows. Major supermarkets have some organic supplies and even though I buy my Spirolina tablets there, I'm not a big supporter of corporate giants cutting in on a market that is small, homely and sometimes struggling.
We eat additives, we clean with poisons. Mrs Flannery sells natural cleaning products for every room in the house. Use chemical free skin and hair care products. I notice the difference. My make up and toiletries have gone organic because I figure if I can feel that much healthier on the inside using organic products, then I can look better on the outside too.
Prior to my conversion to organics, I endured flat moods and severe fatigue. I had to spend a lot of time in bed and I would suddenly fall asleep in the lounge or a car. I've also added exercise but I eat an organic diet as far as possible and I've bloomed. My partner was also a walking vitamin and mineral text book and I can testify that being put on just the right supplements by someone who can figure you out can improve your body function and boost energy and kindness levels.
One of the staff members at Mrs Flannery's is always an actual naturopath on hand to give healthy advice and that's a real bonus. They are not usually free. There is an extensive range of treats for the children and for me, cornchips with less calories. Be prepared to pay a bit more but remember you are saving other things and in other ways.
Organic farming is beneficial to the environment and has no impact on the climate. It's conservative with water and reduces risk of flooding and green house gasses. If you've heard of the carbon cycle, you will know it is crucial. Organic farming locks carbon back into the soil. The carbon cycle is such a big deal that it effects the stars and that queen of energy, the sun. Who doesn't love a star or a sunny day?
If you shop at Mrs Flannery's on Saturday you will get a 15% discount of the vitamin and supplement range and I personally suggest becoming a member and having your own card for further cost cuttings.
The web site is a wealth of information and gives you the exact locations of the three stores. They are open seven days so you don't have to wait until the weekend for Northey Street markets. You can utilise both and benefit yourself and the planet.
