Did you sign up yet?

Only a few days left until the big event, a lecture from special guest speaker Courtney Pineau of the Non-GMO Project.   You can sign up by calling 732-842-8686 or hit us up at info@deansnaturalfoodmarket.com
While spreading the word about this event around Red Bank and Asbury Park, it  surprised me how many people had no idea what GMOs are and what they’re about. To try to explain them to a layperson in a short and sweet manner, well, it makes one sound like a crazy person. I sounded crazy. Flat-out nuts. And no one seemed too concerned when I explained it to them, they really didn’t seem to care.

In light of the scientific proof found in a newly-released study, people should really start caring.  Massive Tumors in Rats Fed GMOs in First Long-Term Study.

In a nutshell, any previous testing had been short-term, 90 days – there were no discernable results so the Big Ag companies deemed GMOs “safe.” But in a lifespan, 90 days is just a blip. This study was done over a period of 2 years. The rats developed large tumors, sustained multiple organ damage and died at a faster rate. Liver and kidneys were damaged as early as 4 months into the rat’s life. Safe indeed. If this is only the first long-term study, you can only imagine what else they will discover with further testing of this kind.
Find out more about GMOs and the Non-GMO Project at our Shrewsbury location this Sunday, Sept. 23 at 2pm. Actually, come at 1pm for Jessica Jarmer’s on-GMO food demo – tempeh sausage crumble on a butternut squash sauce over pasta – and stay afterwards for Abby Cahn-Anton’s food demo. Eat and learn.

See you there!

Big Announcement: VIP from NGMOP

Hi everyone, GREAT news – we have confirmed guest speaker Courtney Pineau from the Non-GMO Project to come speak at our store, this is HUGE! All those Project verification logos you see on so many products in our stores (and all over the country!) – these are the people who put them there. Come learn about the Non-GMO Project from the source itself.

Dean’s Natural Food Market invites you to attend an in-store presentation from Courtney Pineau of the Non-GMO Project.

GMOs, or Genetically Modified Organisms, are organisms which have been genetically altered by inserting genes of one species into another species (also known as “genetically engineered”), creating combinations meant to be pest and herbicide-resistant, but possibly with health risks to consumers. GMO foods have not been proven to be safe for us to eat and may in fact be linked to many health issues such as food allergies, infertility, autism, digestive problems and others.

Over 50 countries worldwide have banned GMO crops. In the USA, GMO foods such as corn, sugar beets, soy, canola and zucchini have been present in our food supply since the early 1990s,have been present in our and do not yet require federally-mandated labeling.

The Non-GMO Project is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to develop and uphold a standardized definition of “non-GMO” for food and other products that are produced without genetic engineering. The Non-GMO Project is the only organization in North America offering independent verification of testing for products in the US and Canada. Products which have been verified by the Non-GMO Project as being free of GMOs can be identified by their verification logo on the packaging.

This free presentation starts at 2 pm on Sunday, September 23rd and will take place in our Shrewsbury location at 490 Broad St. (Rt. 35 N), Shrewsbury NJ. All ages are welcome to attend.

All about Water Kefir: Learn to make your own fizzy-lifting drinks

What is water kefir? Known by many, MANY names (due to the many different cultures who have been using it for centuries), water kefir, tibicos, tibi, Japanese water crystals, Africian bees, Balm of Gilead, the list goes on and on – but what IS it?

In a nutshell, it’s a drink made by fermenting yeast and bacteria, which are called “grains.” They are mixed with water, sugar and an acidic bit of fruit and left to do their thing. Sounds delicious, mmmmm. /end sarcasm.But no, really – the result is a “fizzy-lifting drink,” carbonated like soda but without the processed sugar, artificial flavors and colors AND with an extra added bonus – a ton of  natural probiotics. Sort of like kombucha. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan and low cal, plus you can flavor it too.

Find out more at our first class with the knowledgeable and dynamic Miss Zoe of RAWBundant. You know Zoe, we’ve talked about her and her amazing nut cheezes and other products here before (OK, her raw cashew feta on crackers, drool…) and if you haven’t met her in person, this is NOT to be missed.

If you’d like to register, sign up in-store or call the store of your choice: Shrewsbury 12pm: 732-842-8686 or Ocean 4pm: 732-517-1515. See ya there!

delicious - and pretty

It’s not ALL about the turkey.

Thanksgiving is thought of as pretty much turkey-centric, but it just isn’t the whole truth – what about all the sides? You wouldn’t dream of having turkey without a side of stuffing, mashed potatoes or green beans. And what about desserts? Can’t forget those.

 

 

 

 

 

Spend less time cooking this year and order up some dishes from our Holiday 2011 Menu. We’ve got a great selection of vegetarian and vegan sides and of course, pie – even a vegan pumpkin pie. Not sure? Stop in this Sunday, Nov. 13th from 12-2pm when we’ll be sampling foods from the menu so you can taste and decide.

We still have a few organic turkeys left if you haven’t reserved one yet, but vegetarians and vegans, we have you covered too with plenty of turkey alternatives. We’ll have Tofurky, Fresh Tofu’s Organic Tofu Turkey and items from artisan vegan Field Roast Grain Meat Co. If there’s anything special you’d like to order, please call and ask for Grocery and they would be glad to order or reserve for you. (Note: Please call for special orders by Monday, Nov. 15th so we have time to get them for you.)

Here’s our menu, if you can’t stop in just now but want to get your order in, you can download this, fill it out and fax it in to the store of your choice: OCEAN: 732-517-0202  ::or::  SHREWSBURY: 732-842-8648. As always, please call or email if you have any questions.

Monday, as you know was Non-GMO Day (which has grown into Non-GMO MONTH!) and we got a little on the festive side here at Dean’s. Here are a few pics from the day.
