In spite of ever expanding lotion and potion isles in Whole Food stores, they have kept to their principles, maintained high quality and most importantly to me - my little macrobiotic section I care so much about.
I remember the first time I set foot into a health food store in 1981, when my oldest was just two. It was magic. It smelled so good, and he had such fun filling a paper bag with brown rice and beans with the little shovel in the bucket. Our world had changed forever. I am so grateful for all the people who create for us good, strong, healthy, and above all - cruelty free food - from the farmers who grow it to the businessmen who bring it into our stores. Bless them all.
