There are some things in life that once you experience, you just can’t go back. Organic cotton is one of those simple luxuries. From my linens to my clothes I buy organic and try to support Alabama’s makers. Alabama’s Little River Sock Mill fits me perfectly. Their socks are organic and made in Fort Payne, Alabama. I buy the socks at Alabama Chanin.

My mission for my family to eat Non-GMO and organic includes my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Thus they are not fed any GMOs knowingly. I know where my food and my dogs’ food and treats come from, and prefer locally made or made in my own kitchen. I trust and buy Idie Hastings’ new line of dog treats, Miss Coco’s One Lucky Dog. And I buy organic foods, such as organic, local pasture raised chicken, eggs, and organic vegetables, which I supplement with organic dog foods.

Nabeel’s Market brings imported foods and beverages to Homewood, Alabama. Here at Nabeel’s Market, you can also take home many of the same dishes served at Nabeel’s Café, next door. I have shopped at Nabeel’s Market for years and have found products that I cannot get anywhere else in Birmingham. International beers and cheeses, as well as their own dressing, soups, dips, spreads, salads are among the popular cold case items. Their gourmet to go also includes entrees from Nabeel’s Café. And this place is an herb and spice market in itself.

Alabama BlueberriesWeeks Bay Plantation’s organic blueberries satisfy pre season cravings. 

By Jan Walsh
 

Blueberry season can’t come early enough for me. Every spring I savor strawberries as I look forward for the first local blueberries to appear. But this year I got lucky. Before the local blueberries were in early season and ready to be picked, I found Weeks Bay Plantation’s blueberries in May at Whole Foods.
