New for South Florida GFCF Mommies and Daddies: Annie's Organic Buying Club and The Allergy-Free Shop
Posted Apr 01 2009 2:52pm
There are two great new resources for GFCF moms and dads in South Florida, and in case you haven't already heard about them, I wanted to share the news.
Annie's Organic Buying Club is brand new and you can read all about it here. Here's how it works: You sign up to receive a share of fresh, gorgeous, healthy, delicious, organic vegetables and fruits either weekly or bi-weekly. There is no membership fee, no obligations, I am sure satisfaction is guaranteed! You can choose a share of produce grown in Florida, or a box of mixed produce (still organic, just not all grown in Florida). With several pick-up locations to choose from, it is super-easy. Receiving your box of goodies from the earth is just like getting a Christmas present! Annie expects to offer add-ons of other organic items soon. Branches of her buying clubs are sprouting up in Georgia and Tennessee too. Now the Farmer's Market comes right to your neighborhood! Annie herself also has a really educational blog with tips on going green, recipes, and reflections on motherhood. Check out Hip Organic Mama.
The Allergy-Free Shop is another great new resource. Winner of The Miami Herald's "Business Plan Challenge" (you can read more here ), The Allergy-Free Shop was started by a mom whose son has gluten and casein sensitivities. The store, located in Miami (down south, near The Falls Shopping Center, for you locals!) offers a great service: curb-side pickup. You can order conveniently online, then stop by to pick up your groceries. (If you don't live in Florida, you can still order online.) The website has a really nice feature that allows you to search by allergy.
If you live in South Florida and are new to the GFCF Diet, Teresa Becerra, President of the Miami-Dade Autism Society of America is giving a lecture on March 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the GFCF Diet at the store's monthly lecture night. On lecture nights, you also receive a 10% discount on purchases. For more information or directions, go to the website above.
