Great for natural health

Posted on 05 / 23 / 2015

This store looks very small on the outside but once you go in, you appreciate how the shop continues through a set of corridors to the end and extends to the left where you can find frozen goods.

This is one of the places I've been in with the most variety in products of all kinds such as the ones you could find in Whole Foods (there is no WF nearby).

From organic creams and shampoos to fruits and veggies. This is not a vegan-only shop, but you can find most of everything you could look for in a natural health store.

It should be noted that I've known of people who travel through the city just to get here (and I'm sure there are many other places around though I happened to live one block away), so it must be something special.

Pros: Amazing variety, Take-away and tables at back

small packed store

The Health Nuts is a small packed store, but it seemed to have a little of everything. Even though they are not all vegan, at least there isn't a butcher counter area. There's also a deli counter in the back which I review separately. Definitely the kind of store I would rather shop at than Whole Foods.

Pros: plenty of vegan options
Cons: not all vegan

Great place near Grand Central

This is a kind of old school place that we are unfortunatlely losing. Health food, well stocked supplements, lifestyle items, a small produce section, and a to-go lunch counter with home made soups, sandwiches, and hot food. I had a red lentil veggie soup that was simple but delicious with huge chunks of zucchini and squash. Some of the aisle foods seem a bit overpriced to me, but it's probably a combination of the rent and the fact that it's small store not buying in massive quantities.

Pros: wide variety of products, great healthy lunch option, decent prices
