Superfood Powders/Groceries - where can I find them?

Hi guys, I'm based in Biel and am looking for some specific food types for my new little fitness regime ;p

I can't find anywhere in Biel that keeps the foods I need/want - does anybody know a place in Switzerland I could pick up the following ingredients from?

Some of the ingredients from here - http://www.navitasnaturals.com/recipes/

Superfood powders

In UK we have organic groceries where I usually find them

Some of my favorite ingredients are spirulina, maca root, chia seed, acai berry, reishi mushroom, cocoa nibs, gogi berries & hemp protein

Would appreciate if anyone know of a place, I'm willing to travel

You need to take your list to a Reformhaus, a health food shop.

Thanks Hetfield,

Do you know if any of them are actual stores I could go to physically and buy from them instead of ordering online?

Thanks

Re: Superfood Powders/Groceries - where can I find them?

HI there,

No I don't know of a store that stocks everything, as another poster mentionned, try a reformhaus (health food store) who should have some of the items but I have never found one place that stocks everything - but then I don't go to the 'big city' very often so not sure if there is such a place in Zurich or Basel.

I did happen to go to a reformhaus in Morteau, http://www.lavieclaire.com/ou-nous-trouver.php just over the border in France and was really impressed with their selection but I can't remember if they had everything that you want (might be worth a trip if you fancy a little drive, it is quite nice scenery up that way).

Sorry I can't help

Gruss
Hetfield

Not a driver, I'll take that into consideration though. I'll try a health food store locally but I think my best option might be to go to Zurich or Geneva and look there for a healthfood store - maybe I'll get lucky.

Send a note to this girl

There's a salmonella outbreak in the US right now attributed to chia seed powder.
