With the exception of a Sooner loss, we had a pretty solid weekend. I’ve never been so thankful to not be at an OU game – the worst home loss in the Stoop’s era, it made me Sic. (See what I did there?) I feel ya, Bob.
While the hubs made his way to Owen Field to watch the game, I stopped by a baby shower for one of my regular barre girls. Ericka has been coming to my class since I first started it – 2 years ago! This pretty mama is expecting twins in December!
I was literally at the shower 10 minutes before I had to make a mad dash to OKC. My blog was invited to the Natural Grocers grand opening luncheon on May Ave.
I’ve been shopping at Natural Grocers in Norman for about 2 years now, and it is hands down my favorite stop on my weekly multi-store shopping trip. Does anyone else do this? Have 3 stores on their weekly grocery run? It’s ridiculous, I tell ya.
Natural Grocers reminds me more a corner grocer, like the kind I grew up with in Chelsea, as opposed to a grocery chain. When I visit my local store a lot of them know me by name, are super helpful when it comes to picking supplements, and every one of them is knowledgable about the products they have in store.
Natural Grocers offers a health coach in every one of their stores that is available to customers FOR FREE. They teach in store classes, offer private coaching sessions, and offer store tours. For example, if you are going gluten free for medical or other reasons, the health coach can give you a store tour showcasing only gluten free items. Completely taking the aimless wandering out of your shopping – unless you’re in to that sort of thing.
They offer only organic produce, naturally raised meats, and naturally raised dairy. They are currently phasing out all products from confinement dairies to pasture raised, and will be finished with this process in 2015.
We have a few health food stores in Norman, and I’ve priced checked the items I buy regularly across all stores. 98.3457% of the time, Natural Grocers comes in cheapest. Sometimes it’s a few cents, sometimes it’s a couple of dollars, the most significant one I’ve found is my probiotic – $20 cheaper!!!
Now, we’re going to try something new here…
How about The Farmer’s Daughter’s very first giveaway!?
I’ve got a goodie bag full of Natural Grocers‘ products to send to some lucky duck. I thought about including a gift card, but I know a good chunk of my reader’s don’t have a Natural Grocers within reach (I’m talking to you, Lovington!), so I purchased a few of my favorite items.
