Keeping Your Ingredients Clean: Places to Shop for Natural Foods Around the Capital Region

You know what they say; you are what you eat. How you perform in the studio, on the field, or while exploring the great outdoors also depends highly on how you nourish your body, pre-workout or post-game. The Girlnetic way is nourishing your body with foods made from clean ingredients.

Your body is a temple, after all, and should be treated as such! This means natural, organic, unprocessed, raw, and as much as possible, humanely-treated, cage-free and gluten-free–just how as nature intended it. We like locally-grown too to support local small businesses!

This is not always easy to find, so we did the work for you and compiled a list of places to shop for natural foods AROUND THE CAPITAL REGION:
