I just learned from the Gluten-Free Examiner, Jennifer Harris, that there will be a gluten-free expo on Saturday, August 7 from 12-4, at the Buckhead Whole Foods. There will be demonstrations and gluten-free vendors so you should definitely check out this GF event.
Whole Foods has been a very successful grocery chain, with mixed reviews. Some criticize it for pushing out smaller, local, natural food stores while others applaud it for bringing quality ingredients to communities and supporting some (not all) local farms. A January article in the New Yorker entitled, “Food Fighter” featured Whole Foods’ founder and CEO, John Mackey. This article provides an interesting perspective on the store and Mackey. It’s worth the read.
Despite the controversy associated with this high-end grocery store, I always appreciate Whole Foods’ large selection of gluten-free foods, and random ingredients like quinoa, almond flour, bean sprouts, and every nut you can imagine.
Here are some of my favorite things about Whole Foods:
