I am pleased to announce the Goods is approved by the Darou Wellness Program for the month of July. The integrated team at Darou Wellness not only supports their patients but also local, like-minded businesses in the Toronto wellness community. I have a wonderful history with the founder Dr. Shauna Darou, she was my first naturopathic doctor and a guiding light in the early days of my transition to a plant based diet. I still follow much of her direction years later and I feel honoured that her program has approved the Goods as a healthy business in the city.  If you're looking to take your health to the next level, see a naturopathic doctor. It'll be worth it, they are experts in natural health and wellness.

Kylie For The Goods The incredibly bright, loveable and organized Kylie was at THE GOODS making smoothies. We mixed and matched leftover ingredients from the week and came up with this beauty of a smoothie today. Romaine' Around Smoothie makes 2Ls 1 head organic romaine lettuce 2 organic bosh pears 4 sprigs curly parsley 1/2 stalk organic celery 1-1/2 lemons, juiced 2 tbsp chia 4 cups filtered water Blend well on high speed... but not too long, add ice if you like. Kylie also informed the kitchen that parsley, in high quantities will act as an emmenagogue, which means it stimulates menstruation. So if you're late, and not knocked up, bring on the parsley. Whether steeped as a tea, or blended into a smoothie or juice it's rumoured to work like a charm.
