Keep Your Eyes Open for Health Gems in Your Own ‘Hood’!

The delicious "Works" at Mothers Herbs! Check out your local health food shops.

One of my favorite weekly things to do around my neighborhood is to visit my local health food stores.  I love looking at all the new products and talking to the awesome people who work there.  I always learn something new!  I recently discovered a local health store gem that I’d never noticed before!  Mothers Herbs & Vitamins is a diamond in the rough located on a small side street in North Vancouver, BC.  I finally noticed this health food store oasis and ordered one of their incredible organic smoothies.  Wow, are they delicious, enormous (a meal!), organic AND healthy!   I always order their infamous smoothie “The Works”.

Here’s what’s in this tasty shake:

  • Apple
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Dates
  • Figs
  • Kefir (I just learnt about Kefir – enzyme-rich yoghurt-type food that is great for boosting your immunity and increasing your daily energy)
  • Flax Seed
  • Green Tea
  • Chlorella
  • Vega (plant based super food)

Katelin and Frank, store owners, are full of health information too.  They have great advice on any question you may have.  I always take lots of notes after I leave so I can run home and blog!

I stop by at least once a week for my “Works Fix” and to check out the latest products.

So just a reminder to keep your eyes open for these ‘sometimes hidden’ health gems!

To YOUR health,


You Be Healthy
