My Top Ten Must-Have Items at Healthy Living Market!

10 Must Have Items at Healthy Living Market

I’ve adored shopping at Healthy Living Market in Saratoga Springs since the day they opened their doors.  I probably make a weekly trip there, sometimes to pick up a few quick items, and other times to do some major shopping.  I eat a fairly healthy diet; paleo about 80% of the time with a little added grain like quinoa and brown rice and a cheat now and then with some really great cheese (and chocolate!).  The rest of my family…. {Read More}

Sweet Potato Quinoa Chili Prep time: {Read More}
