Hey im quite new to Shenzhen.
Can anyone tell me some good stores to get Organic foods and Healthy food products?
Like Coconut Oil or Flax seeds for example
I can get all the stuff I need from Hong Kong but I don't want to keep going there every weekend.
I am living in Futian now.
Thanks & Best regards,
Gonna go on a limb here and say; Wrong place for all that business. Might try Ole or can get some bits and bobs at Wal-Mart or the foreigner stores in Shekou, but most likely will pay an arm and a leg for it.
so i really do have to go to hong kong every weekend then
no food is healthy in here
If you ever decide to take a short trip over to Thailand, you will find these items. Just stock up and carry back with you as I'm certain Coconut Oil and Flax seeds/oil will keep for a long time.
ok well thanks for all the advice
looks like i will be stocking up each weekend in hong kong
i live very close to futian checkpoint so its not so bad
i guess i will only buy fruit and veg in china where i can peel or remove the skin
oh dear mate
well i hope the good in it outweighs the bad!!!!
anyone know any good ways to remove the pesticides off fruit and veg
i heard there is a special tablet you can buy that dissolves in water and then you soak the fruit in it
but i cant even find that in hong kong
im pretty sure there must be some natural remedies for this
anybody know any?
I never thought China would spend the money on pesticides for fruits and veggies and rely more on what they have a lot of naturally....
Guys I'm suffering from Celiac Disease as well as a diabetities, I bodybuild yet these two afflictions are killing me from putting on any mass. My metabolism is in hypherdrive so I'm cutting up but still appearing the same size. The wheat gluten allergy is preventing me from fully processing the nutrition from my food sources. The majority of my diet is 90% or more protein, mostly chicken. My friend was pleading with me to stop eating chicken because of that virus propoganda. A few people die by fluke and the public goes nuts over it.
Yeah, Cut off the skins because thats where most if not all reside.
Why not just eat the F'n food here in SZ and wash it careful before cooking it ?
Jeez, you "Organic" people are something else !!
It is ALL organic !! If its not man-made its organic, get used to eating regular ol fruits and vegies !!
i think ole' store in mixc may more QA .
There are two that I know of:
1) La Vegan (formerly Green Life)
3F, Junting Mingyuan, Baoan Nan Lu, Luohu District
This one is the largest, about 4 very small aisles of organic food and other products. The restaurant is your typical Buddhist vegetarian fare, but more fresh/less oily than most places. I'm pretty sure you can find flax seeds and coconut oil here, but the latter will not be cheap...
2) Awakening Restaurant
Zhenxing Lu (near Huafu Lu) in Hua Qiang Bei - opposite from the Mevlana Turkish place: 福田区华强北振兴路154号 手表市场往西100米)
This one is smaller but still has some unique items, and much more of a hippie vibe going on here. Nice upstairs eating area.
PS: Ole in MixC also has a highly priced organic produce section and maybe one aisle of organic grains/seeds/beans/etc.
