Chinese New Year

Welcome to the Chinese New Year of the Rooster! Why not cook a Chinese meal to celebrate? Here are some easy Chinese recipes.
We have many of the ingredients in the shop - noodles, soya sauce, sesame seed oil. We also have fresh spring onions, mixed bean sprouts, diced pork and tofu.
For a full list see this week's organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
In the last blog we mentioned that Dr Christopher Hertzog will be in the shop to discuss our new range of health supplements with you. It was a very successful day and for those who unfortunately missed it we hope to have him in the shop again soon.
In the meat/fish department this week we'll have organic beef mince, braising steak, bacon, chicken: whole and breasts, diced pork and smoked salmon. If you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.
Have a good week!


PS if you or a friend can't come to the shop you can take a virtual tour! You can then email in an order and we will endeavour to deliver it - see our delivery page for details.

health supplement guru in the shop next week

Well last week was eventful. Snow, high winds and very high tides. Scarborough just about survived but some silly people were very lucky. There was footage on the BBC website of someone in a wheelchair and a lady with a dog wave dodging at the North Bay!
It's definitely soup weather - why not try this delicious Jerusalem artichoke and horesradish soup.
Next Wednesday is Burn's Night and we will have vegetarian haggis in the shop. Any one planning a Burn's Night supper? We have organic neeps (turnips/swedes) and tatties (potatoes) to serve with the haggis. Unfortunately we're not licenced to sell the whisky!
See this week's organic fruit and vegetable price guide for a full list of what's in the shop this week.
In the last blog we mentioned our new range of health supplements - well Dr Christopher Hertzog will be in the shop on 24th January to discuss them with you.
In the meat/fish department this week we'll have organic beef mince, braising steak, bacon, chicken, fresh and smoked salmon. If you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.
Have a good week!

Happy New Year

A very Happy New Year to all our customers! let's hope that 2017 will be a good year for everyone even though there are some challenging times ahead.
I'm sure you've all had a lovely festive time but are now ready to settle down to a healthy lifestyle. For the vast majority of us, a sensible diet and regular physical activity really are the only ways to properly maintain and maximise our health. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables - see this week's organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
If you do need a bit of extra help we have a range of health supplements: Beta glucan for healthy immune systems, Lutien the eye vitamin and Taheebo a natural antibiotic derived from a specific tree bark.


A worrying study has just been published by Public Health England warning that "Kids are devouring too much 'breakfast sugar'"!
The study says that children are packing in so much sugar at breakfast that half their daily allowance has already been eaten before school!
Around a quarter of five-year-olds have tooth decay and nearly a fifth of children are already obese by the time they leave primary school.
This can be one of our New Year resolutions - to cut down on the amount of sugar we all eat. Sugar occurs in lots of food - including sugary cereals, juices and spreads.


In the meat/fish department this week we'll just have organic bacon and smoked salmon.
Next week we'll have a wider range but if you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.
Have a good week!
