Super Exciting News

Belize Expat Health Insurance Advice

Super exciting news – Zac has hooked up with an Organic Farming Operation in Belize that is recognized by the USDA/NOP as Certified Organic. Now we are able to get super fresh pesticide free veggies at a good price – this is huge.

Yesterday I got a good sized bag of organic mixed  greens for $8 bzd and the date on the bag that they were packaged [and likely picked] was same day March 3, 2011 – does not get much fresher than that. I came home and proceeded to eat a huge bowl of salad while watching the new episode of  Jersey Shore – total trash tv I know. Join Healthy Belize facebook fan page if you want to get in on the info loop for this sweet deal – everyone at aquafit was keen.

More exciting news tacoboy texted and he is on his way home right now with Wade the gringo burgers and fries from roadkill bar.

Hey Laurie, here in Austin we have Whole Foods, Central Market, and a bunch of small organic groceries so we sure have a lot more options than we did in Canada….and slightly better prices.

This is great news, Taco Girl. I am such an advocate of eating clean and organic and it’s so awesome to see that you’re able to get this in Belize at a good price. Love it.

The price is fantastic and so is quality. I remember how much more expensive organic was in Canada.
