Sunday Football Made Rawsome
During the week it’s easier to be all juices and greens, but on the weekend when the guys get together for brats and brews, you want to be right there with them, having fun and indulging a little without blowing off your diet and fitness goals. When your buds play fantasy football, face it- it’s going to be an extended session of smack-talking, screaming and snacking.

Chew On This
Your organic market might have some other brands of raw flatbreads, sesame stick snacks and raw nori nachos and such. If you are saving up for a good dehydrator like we are, at least in the meantime we can support some awesome raw companies for our snacks. If the store apparently has no raw snacks, maybe make a point to ask if they have any and if not, let them know you would be buying them.
If you’re in San Diego, Jimbo’s is the place to be- that and the numerous Farmer’s Markets- there’s one every day in some nearby community! I am thrilled to know that Jimbo’s is truly committed to local, organic, non-gmo foods. We are so lucky we have this kind of store and an amazing farmer’s market year-round with the beautiful San Diego weather.
There are currently only 4 Jimbo’s locations (4s Ranch, Escondido, Carlsbad, Carmel Valley- all in the San Diego area) but hopefully no matter where you are you can find produce that’s local- get in on a CSA, find your Farmer’s Markets. Grow your own herbs, sprouts, greens and vegetables whenever possible. When your food comes from your own windowsill or side-yard, you not only save money, you know it’s organic.
