We might be onto something...

Last week, organic food news source Rodale News released an article listing the "11 Healthiest Foods in the World". According to J.I. Rodale, they are:
  1. Fish
  2. Kelp
  3. Mushrooms
  4. Coconut
  5. Watercress
  6. Wild berries
  7. Wild rice
  8. Wild game
  9. Maple syrup
  10. Honey
  11. Nuts
The bolded items are ones we carry in our store. Count 'em - that's 8 of the 11 foods! And you might have noticed that the first one on the list is fish, which just happens to be our feature product this month (we have trout, pickerel, whitefish and pike available). More importantly though, is the fact that those eight foods are available right in Saskatchewan!

We often lament that it's difficult to eat locally on the Canadian Prairies. With our extreme climate, fresh fruits and vegetables are only available a few months of the year. But this list includes eight foods that we can get right here in Saskatchewan, all year long! Yes, the berries have to come out of the freezer in the winter time, but Saskatoon berries freeze extremely well.

Aren't we fortunate to have access to some of the healthiest foods in the world, right in our backyard?
