This past Saturday, my husband Dave & I had one of our first outside dates since the pandemic started. It was wonderful. We choose to visit Bull City Ciderworks for their soft opening, which turned out not to be a soft opening. Apparently a lot of other people were looking for things to do or waiting for our first cidery to open in Greensboro. YAY!! Finally we have a place to hang and have a few adult beverages.
Dave enjoyed the Smooth Hoppenator, dry with a bit of hoppiness. Reminiscent of a beer, which he really misses since being diagnosed as celiac.
Shopping with SNAP benefits has gotten a bit easier at The Corner Market located on the corner of Walker Ave and Elam Ave in Greensboro NC. Get fresh local good for you foods from your farmer and favorite prepared food vendor.
If you receive SNAP benefits, The Corner Farmers Market will double them, up to $50 each week. So $50 in SNAP benefits becomes $100 in market dollars. When you come to the market, stop by the yellow and white market tent at the Walker Ave entrance. Our staff will swipe your card and give you double that amount in tokens to spend. As always, your tokens never expire and are good for all SNAP-eligible purchases, including food plants. P-EBT SNAP benefits work the same way.
The Corner Pick Up service is also available for SNAP customers. When pre-ordering, just indicate in the WhatsGood App that you will pay on-site - Here's how:
SNAP-eligible products include all edible products including fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, eggs, bakery goods, preserved goods (like jams, salsas), and plants that bear edible items. Non-SNAP eligilble items include cut flowers, soaps, hemp products, and yarn. You must pay for these items with another payment via WhatsGood.
I’ve juggled many hats in my life. I’ve done traditional sales, quality control, taught at risk kids, and had the mom life while taking care of elderly parents. A few years ago I started a baking business, PaleoLove Company, which was an outgrowth of my daughter’s autoimmune illness. That led to me going back to school to become a Functional Nutrition Counselor. Through my education I learned how important our skin is to detoxifying our bodies. Cue dramatic music in walks Crystal Wilson, who introduced me to Beautycounter. I wasn’t really looking for skin care, but I am a curious person so I listened. Beautycounter intrigued me, I finally sampled the products and was sold. I first became a client, then decided to become a consultant.
This weekend I made a new kind of granola. It's amazing at least my husband and I think so, the teen not so much. This granola is on the savory side. It would be great on top of brie with touch of onion jam. Since there are dairy allergies in our house we have started using Jules Foods cashew brie, which can be purchased at Vida Pour Tea in Greensboro located on State Street in Irving Park. I love this sweet tea shop, Sarah has several varieties of hand crafted teas, in addition to carrying locally made baked goods, kefir, kombucha and coffee. You can also find sleep, baby, feminine & masculine care products. In addition to ceramics, natural dental, honey, ayurveda, and plenty of tea-ware of course. If you are local go check out her shop and tell the girls behind the counter Mary sent you. Otherwise you can visit her online.

She began her paleo journey just out of curiosity, then her oldest daughter developed health problems where she needed to consume a low carb low sugar diet. It is here where she developed her skills in creating and making low sugar low carb treats and eats.
