wheat-ridge1-300x225Earlier in the week, ACF was invited by Natural Grocers Vitamin Cottage (NGVC) to a luncheon at their new beautiful store at I70 & Kipling.  Joe attended on Sunday and RZ & LZ on Monday.  This was a chance for us to network with fellow health professionals in our area as well as learn what Natural Grocers can bring to our community.  Needless to say, we were very impressed with their philosophy and mission.  Here’s a couple quick highlights:
– They are redefining what it means to be a “grocery store” by providing EDUCATION for FREE to their customers.  Yeah…you can actually attend free live events directly in the store and they have 1-on-1 Nutritional Coaches available. We have a list of upcoming events posted at Alpine.  Oh yeah, and your very own Joe and RZ will be presenting a Fitness & Nutrition seminar at NGVC on Wednesday June 10th from 5:30-6:30pm =)
– NGVC publicly lists why they don’t sell some “foods” (I put that in parenthesis because most food with a food label is not food….GMOs…Corn Syrup….preservatives….think about it.)  Check out this article on their website: “What We Won’t Sell And Why”
 – Everything in the store is harvested from sustainable food systems.  In other words, the cultivation process of these foods does not destroy the soil and eliminates dangerous chemicals from plant or animal consumption and thus, Human consumption.
 You have to buy groceries anyways, right?  Might as well get some non-GMO eats while supporting a great company at NGVC who is dedicated to your well being.  I know we will be =)
