Good Morning Sandi
I was wondering if these things that you list are avaliable to us canadians - I remembered you said before to having a states mail box so I am assuming that you have easy access to going to the states.
But that would be good to know if we can get them here.
Hi Sherall, I am not sure if they are all available here, I do buy the Tinkyada brown rice pastas and the Blue Diamond Almond and brown rice crackers and organic spaghetti sauce and mayo for the odd meal, but that is about all the processed foodstuff I eat. And the Terra chips once in a while, but most other stuff is made from scratch. But you could do a google search and maybe find stores that would carry those items.

Best luck, and happy Thanksgiving.

Hi Sherall,

I did a quick search and found 3 natural food stores in Edmonton. The names and numbers are below so you can call for addresses or ask if they carry the products you are looking for, before you make a trip to the store. Also, I don't know if you ever go to Calgary, but a quick google search brought up quite a few stores located there too. Maybe a day trip down to stock up?

Good luck!!

Oops, forgot to mention, Tree of Life is a natural foods distributor that carries a lot of the products mentioned above. They have a call center in Calgary (800.665.1298). The call center can advise you about locations in Edmonton, Calgary and in between, where they deliver. I think they may deliver to 'buying clubs' too, if you wanted to start one in your area. (I worked in the natural foods business for a number of years and ordered from Tree of Life often)
Wow!!! you guys are just great - a hug to you all. and a big "THANK YOU"
I never thought to look on the internet but I sure will keep that in mind for future things.
And thank you so much for the names and numbers-I will be for sure to check them out.
Thank you again
You guys are just sooooo great.
The help you give us new guys is above and beyond
