Eating Organic While on Vacation

It is about that time again when families will be heading to a favorite destination or exploring a new one. One of our biggest struggles while traveling is where to find healthy (organic) food. Our last trip was easy because we went back to West Tennessee to visit family. Because we know people there who eat organic it was a no brainier to contact them for finding organic food. But what about when you are traveling to a new place where you have no brain to pick?

Springs of Life

My solution for this is easy. I want all the bloggers who eat organic to let me know what state and town you are in and where you go for organic food. This could be a small health food store, farmer's market, or a chain such as Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. The image to the right is where I had lunch yesterday. It is a cafe attached to a health store. If you do not know about this place you would never find it. It is tucked away off the highway in Covington Louisiana and we are so glad they are here.It is places like this that I am really seeking to promote.  Promote small business owners is our families motto.

I am going to use these to compile an article for the June/July issue. Everyone who participates will have the option of having their picture and blog link in the magazine. Of course there are a few rules, ahhhhhh, sorry guys it's a natural living magazine and I want to keep it clean. That means if your blog is not geared towards natural living, sorry, your blog link will not be allowed. I will personally check every blog to be sure it complies with natural living. Confused about what natural living is, here's a check list.

Natural Living Topics
  • Organic Food
  • Homesteading 
  • Organic Gardening
  • Fitness
  • Homeschooling
  • Healing Naturally with Herbs or Essential Oils
  • Living off the Grid
  • Hunting/Fishing
I believe you get the idea and those who live the lifestyle know what it means. If there are any recipes on your blog they can show only non-organic ingredients within the image. For instance a brownie recipe can not have any images of Hersey's Cocoa Powder. Yes, seasonings are included, no images of McCormick. If you are not sure of the content here please comment below or email me.

Those who wish to contribute please comment and send me an email at yourlifemag.yahoo.com. In the subject line please put Vacation Destination. Include the name of the establishment, address, phone number, along with the web site and image if available. If you submit a farmers market please include the days and hours of operation. Images should be sent as an attachment. Also include your name, blog link, and an image of yourself if you want that included.

Southern man and I believe their is strength in numbers. There are a lot of great blogs out there on natural living along with healthy (organic) places to get eat. Let's stand together and help others live a happy, healthy, natural lifestyle by sharing our knowledge.
