Where do you get your grass fed organic meat ?

Of course its a better option but id rather go for something thats more grass fed seeing that corn and grain isnt the natural diet of a cow not to mention that corn is mostly all genetically modified. My choice would be les fermes valens and or my #1 choice ferme d'oree.

Are any of you in favor of having a whole foods in Montreal?

I emailed them about it and they just said that they will share it with their store development team. Are you guys in favor of having one? Let me know what you think, email them as well if you would like one maybe if they get enough support they will build one here.

Have you ever made saurekraut ??

Its the first time i make it and my jar isn't 100% full to the top there is still room like 2-3 inch is this bad due to more oxygen being in the jar. My jar is sealed tight and just water is on the surface i added some more water and salt to it but there is still room is it bad?

Where can i find macadamian and brazil nuts in montreal

I actually found at Basse nuts on the 440 in Laval but macadamia nuts are the least common to find since they come from either Hawaii or Australia its not like any other type of nut so thats why i asked so i dont know why your trying to encourage people not to answer.... Regardless these nuts are quite expensive $40 a kilo so having people name other stores can make me compare to get a better price. No one is forcing you to answer.

Raw fresh green chickpeas/favabeans

I buy raw green chickpeas here and there and i currently have fresh fava beans are their any problems associated with eatign them raw? Such as having a compound that can create an issue. I know when beans are dried they contain nutrient inhibitors and phytic acid which is why its recommended to soak them in acidic water with lemon or ACV or sprout them but are raw fresh ones better. Also what other types of beans can be bought fresh other than the two mentioned. Thanks.

Whole Foods in Montreal?

I heard they are suppose to open up here and expand latter on i think something like 2014 but not sure. Regardless you can find plenty of organic natural foods there are many small ones scattered everywhere in montreal area and off the island bigger ones like Marche Tau in st leo the jean talon market has some natural foods and i think viva eco bio on the 440 in laval is good. There are many more.

Looking for good source of nut flours and other gluten-free essentials

I know Mi & stu on park avenue is a gluten free bakery you can chek for some goods there. Also wheatlesswonders sells. In terms of finding bags on flours i dunno. I too would like to find. I think i will look at marché tau if they have a larger verity or club organic.

Wild Alaskan salamon

Hi, does anyone have a clue where i can find wild Alaskan salmon anywhere in montreal. I haven't looked yet but just wondering. Im strictly in search for Alaskan salmon because most salmon is farmed and even if it says wild on the label its said that 6 out of 8 companies that state wild on it are actually farmed in the Atlantic ocean so there are loopholes to be able to put wild on the label and farmed salmon is awful. Alaskan does not permit to farming salmon so any clues where to find any. Vital Choice sells it but unfortunately doesn't ship to Canada.

non GMO tofu

For soy products Tofurkey from turtle island has the best veggie sausages i ever tasted all GMO free and organic soy beans also gardein makes good verity of GMO free soy products as well but never tried them but their website shows a large verity of foods and look good (note that gardein uses non GMO soy products other ingredients may contain GMO's). Both these brands can be bought at Marche Tau there are several stores check their website for the nearest one to you.

For just Tofu same go in the organic section of loblaws/Maxie or health food stores like Tau and read if its organic its GMO free sometimes it will say GMO free anyway.****Regardless don't consume to much soy un-fermeted soy can be potentially harmful while fermented soy is good for you like Tempeh, natto, miso ect..

Good vegetarian restaurants

Anyone been to some good vegetarian restaurants whether it be in montreal or Laval doesn't matter. I'd prefer a higher class restaurant. Ive been to one on st martin Laval i believ ist called le comensal it was good but it was kinda buffet style and works well for lunch instead. So any suggestions would be great thanks.

Best pizza in MTL

Piatti its in Rosemere a bit further but no doubt the best pizza ive tried at a restaurant im Italian and we make homemade wood oven pizza it tastes just like homemade pizza its absolutely amazing. Everything else is good there too but go on weekdays on weekends its jam packed and the service is slower but for pizza its still quick. Its also a very nice restaurant

Cross contaminated gluten free products? [moved from Quebec (inc. Montreal) board]

I know that products such as oat, buckwheat, millet ect... Are gluten free but can be cross contaminated with gluten products therefore having gluten but is it still a much less consecration. I do not have celiac but i want to be more gluten free, sometimes i find products like buckwheat but it doesn't say gluten free and sometimes it does. So can it be that its cross contaminated and contains gluten but is it a lot or jut has traces like when certain products say may contain nuts.
