‘Going Against the Grain for Health’ Presentation Sept. 20th at New
Natural Grocers in Tucson

NaturalGrocers-0920-memeby Melissa Diane Smith

I am delighted to be a featured speaker during the Grand Opening of the new Natural Grocers natural food supermarket at 5600 E. River Road in Tucson this month.

On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, at 6 p.m., I will present “Going Against the Grain for Health: How to Make Food Your Best Medicine.” In this presentation, I’ll cover the health troubles caused by refined grains, whole grains, gluten grains, and genetically modified ingredients hidden in grain-based foods, and explain how to use this information to lose unwanted weight, reverse disease processes, and revitalize health. I’ll also give my answers to common questions I receive, such as “was wheat always not good for us, or has it become worse for our health in recent years?” and answer any other questions that you have.

If you’ve always believed the phrase “food is our best medicine,” but don’t know how to make it your best medicine, be sure to put September 20th on your calendar, and don’t miss this free presentation. Copies of both Going Against the Grain and Going Against GMOs will be available for purchase following my presentation.

Be sure to also mark your calendar for 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 1. That’s when I will be giving a second presentation on a different, but equally important topic, “How to Shop and Eat Non-GMO (Even Without Mandatory Labeling!).” If you don’t know what GMOs are and don’t know the many reasons why a growing number of people want to avoid them, don’t worry: I’ll cover that information, too!

Learn more about both speeches here and here.

If you aren’t familiar with Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, it is a chain of natural food supermarkets that offers high-quality food products at affordable prices. Natural Grocers has led the way in the natural food industry in its dairy standards by phasing out dairy products from confinement dairies and carrying only pasture-based dairy products. It also sells only USDA certified organic produce (not mixed with conventional). That means when you buy your produce from Natural Grocers (and you should be emphasizing produce when you move away from grains in your diet!), you will never have to worry about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or chemical pesticide residues on your produce. Natural Grocers also was one of the first natural food stores to prohibit products that contain artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, and sweeteners, hydrogenated and partially-hydrogenated oils, bleached flours, and irradiated foods, which means the chain has done a lot of work to make it easier for customers to make healthy food choices.
