TRICK OR TREAT? LET’S PICK ‘N’ EAT!

OCTOBER 28. . . .WE’LL BE UP TO our eyeballs in junk as this month ends. Do yourself (and the kids) a favor: Be picky this Halloween; check the source of those treats; don’t take or give “treats” that aren’t fair trade and organic. Be healthy spooks!

FIRST OF THE MONTH: Next Tuesday will be the monthly Gluten Free Spoken Here lunch, usually held at the Outback at noon. Contact carolynacuff@comcast.net

SPECIAL DELIVERIES: Sami’s, Granola Naturals, NOW Foods, Megumi Natto will arrive throughout the week.

THURSDAY TRUCK: organic Brazil nuts, organic dried ginger, organic 5lb raisins, organic navy beans and black beans, 3lb frozen wild blueberries, Nama Shoyu, Harvest Bay coconut water, seasonings, gf piecrusts, organic juices, yogurt, Kevita, and more.

REQUESTED FROM DESTINY: avocados, bananas, red grapes, broccoli, celery, romaine. Organic? Of course!

STILL IN STOCK: organic lemons and limes, organic ginger and garlic, organic red and russet potatoes, organic sweet potatoes, three varieties of organic apples, organic onions, organic cabbage.

Picky eaters are at home at Rabbit Food.

ONTO SOMETHING

OCTOBER 21. . . .THESE WILDERNESS POETS may be onto something. An assortment of their nut and seed butters, and some snack pack size trail mixes, arrived on Saturday. The hemp seed butter with cacao kind of speaks for itself; the pistachio butter is mmmm-mmm outstanding; the pecan and cashew butter–deelicious(there’s a jar to sample from); and that’s less than half of what’s there. image
Try some this week and tell us what you think. I’ll be checking into pricing. Like the Good Stuff Cacao, this may become a Rabbit Food staple.
I’M ENJOYING THE LOCALLY-grown, pesticide-free produce that I’ve been getting from Garden delivery CSA; are you? If you have an order, you can pick up tomorrow between 1 and 5 as usual. Also on Wednesday: Sami’s arrives, Historic Springs Hydrate is ordered, and Granola Naturals may come too.
ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY: Albert’s Organics will be arriving every other week from now on, and this is our “on” week! Look what a list of organic produce–cameos and Fujis, carrots, avocados, garlic and ginger, lemons and limes, baby spinach, sunflower sprouts, cress and red bell peppers. Load up!
HOPE THE TRUCK’S ON TIME this week, because getting up at 4am two days in a row requires more energy than this bunny’s got! Whatever day it comes, expect to see organic sunflower seeds restocked, more organic figs, oats, gallon jugs of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar, grapeseed Vegenaise, Kinnick gluten-free S’moreables, organic sweet brown rice, organic ginger tea, and more Quest bars with all else that arrives.
FRIDAY, of course, is Destiny Organics day, a day for more organic produce to show up!
You’re onto something good when you shop at Rabbit Food.

WAX POETIC

OCTOBER 14. . . SOMETIMES GOOD food and great recipes call forth buttery language, and now I think we’ve been contacted by the health food laureates. http://wildernesspoets.com is a business in Amboy, WA specializing in organic nuts, seeds, butters, cacao, vanilla, and more, and the recipes that go with them! Check out their website, and you’ll see what I mean. I immediately placed an order for several boxes of their snack sized nut and seed butters, and a few trail mixes. I expect the order to arrive Wednesday or Thursday. Be sure to try some, and look at other products from Wilderness Poets that you might like.

GOODSTUFF Cacao is on the way–ETA Thursday or Friday because of the Columbus Day holiday. Sami’s should arrive Wednesday as usual. CSA pickup is Wednesday between 1 and 5.

IF YOU’VE been waiting on Hydrate water, it’s here. So are the grapeseed oil, olive oil, avocado oil, Pamela’s mixes, dried cranberries, almond butter, walnuts, pecans, and Bragg’s.

WHAT’S ON THURSDAY’S TRUCK? Look in the fridge for Farmhouse Culture kraut pouches and Vegenaise on sale; organic almonds and organic medjool dates should be back on the fruit/nut/seed shelf; 3# frozen wild blueberries are reported to be back in stock, and I remembered to order some kombucha and Kevita. Lots of other goodies come as usual.

DESTINY ORGANICS delivers fresh organic produce Friday, so let us know before Thursday lunchtime if there’s something in particular you’d like to have.

ARE WE NUTS?

OCTOBER 7. . . .IT SEEMS WE need to take out a bank loan to afford organic nuts these days. Squirrels we must be though, because organic pecans and walnuts are on our order list this week. Organic filberts, pistachios, and peanuts are plentiful in the store. Raw pumpkin seeds and organic flax seeds are also en route, while hemp, organic sunflower, chia, and sesame seeds are in stock.

RESTOCKS EXPECTED: Barlean’s flax oil, ground flax, greens powder; Saifan olive oil soap; NOW almond flour, Xyliwhite toothpastes, essential oils; Granola Naturals peanut butter bars and peanutty nuggets; Historic Springs Hydrate water (hopefully!)

CSA ORDERS arrive Wednesday.
Sami’s arrives Wednesday.

ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY: gala apples (I think I told people Fujis–sorry), carrots, red bell peppers, spinach, sunflower sprouts, tomatoes, cress.
ALSO HAPPENING THURSDAY: “Growing Healthy Mushrooms” at the King Family Library, 5:30-7:00pm. It’s hosted by our friends the Brewers and bound to be worthwhile to attend.

ORGANIC PRODUCE FRIDAY: lettuce, celery, grapefruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes, more.

SPLIT PEAS, raw buckwheat groats, avocado oil, Wild Planet sardines, and Julie’s organic icecream are among the products expected in this week. I haven’t been able to get organic dried cannelini beans for some months, but I can get Eden 108oz cans of them–just let me know if you want one.

There’s something for every nut at Rabbit Food.

GOOD TIME TO STASH

SEPTEMBER 30. . . JUDGING BY THE volume of special orders this week, there are customers with the wherewithall to make like squirrels and start stashing for the winter. It’s a great time for it–during the month of October, UNFI has deals on some of our favorites.  Be sure to check the sales catalogue next time you’re in the store, and remember that bulk orders always get better pricing!

WEDNESDAY. . . PICK UP your CSA bag if you ordered.  Come in for Sami’s bread (the pita goes quickly).  Shop in the peace of a Wednesday afternoon at Rabbit Food, and then wander over to our new neighbor, Cathy’s Beauty Supply, and browse around.

THURSDAY. . . .LOADED is the only way to describe our truck this week: gluten-free products including cookies, pizza, pasta, and bread; Dr. Bronner’s coconut oil, Napa Valley Naturals olive oil, grapeseed oil; Bragg apple cider vinegar and Braggberry dressing on sale; grapeseed Vegenaise on sale; smoked paprika, Herbamare seasoning, black pepper, cinnamon, almond extract, vanilla extract; and that barely scratches the surface. Organic produce from Albert’s will include MacIntosh apples, sunflower sprouts, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes.

We also expect an order from NOW Foods so will be restocked with pine nuts, almond flour, maple syrup, and more good things.

FRIDAY. . . .DESTINY DELIVERS on Fridays.  Count on organic celery, lettuce, lemons, grapes and more.

CURRENTLY IN STOCK: juicy and sweet organic oranges, perfect organic pears, the  best organic pineapples, good organic ginger and garlic, crisp and tight organic red and organic green cabbages, freshly roasted Three Bears coffee, a variety of organic rices and rice blends, and more!

The food just tastes better from Rabbit Food.

UNFI TRUCK: we have good deals on Late July organic peanut butter or cheese crackers, Field Day organic diced peach or pear cups, Field day shampoos and conditioners, Artisana organic coconut butter, and Quest bars. I remembered to order the Kalona organic cottage cheese this week, along with Wallaby organic sour cream and Sustainable Seas tuna.

All in all, it’s looking like another good week at Rabbit Food.

OUR BIG DAY

SEPTEMBER 16. . . .OUR FIRST CSA delivery will be tomorrow at 1pm.  If you have an order arriving, come early and meet Stephen and Theresa while they’re here. If you don’t have an order, come anyway, and see what this is all about.  It’s the best Rabbit Food adventure in ages!

FROZEN BLUEBERRIES:  What are they?  We haven’t seen any in stock for several weeks, but they are not listed as out of stock this week.  Wow.  I’m looking forward to seeing the freezer stocked again.

COBBLE CREEK delivered today.  We now have plenty of meat in the freezer.  The ground beef price has increased by about 90c/lb.

SAMI’S BREAD arrives tomorrow.  Extra millet and flax pita is ordered–hopefully, there’ll be enough for everyone who wants to try some.

GOOD STUFF CACAO is also en route.  This week, I’ve ordered some of the new trail mix with Himalayan salt variety along with the other Good Stuff flavors.  These make great gifts.

ORGANIC PRODUCE THURSDAY: gold apples, red cabbage, limes, baby spinach, sunflower sprouts, cress, garnet yams.

HIGHLIGHTS  from the UNFI order include, as well as the frozen wild blueberries: organic pistachios, organic garlic granules, Redwood Hill goat yogurt, and large bags of Pamela’s gluten-free mixes–bread, pancake, artisan flour blend, pizza crust.

A SELECT NUTRITION order is coming, with Sambucol elderberry syrups (yep, it’s that share-a-virus time again), stevia clear liquid, liquid iodine, and more.

FRIDAY IS ALWAYS Destiny delivery day.  I’ll be ordering more organic potatoes, organic lemons, organic lettuce, organic celery, organic cabbage, and other goodies.

Come to Rabbit Food and have a big day.
