Are there health food stores in India?
Hi there Arti…well you are asking the question I’ve spent years myself trying to answer. I also live in India as a ‘foreigner’. I live near Delhi so most of my searching for Health food shops has been in Delhi. What I am noticing after 12 years since I first came here is that India is either getting educated about organics more now or else one could say, going back to their roots. By that I mean that things are really simple in India and always were, the foods were organic and so forth, there are herbs from which Ayurvedic doctors make their medicines, but India followed the west. They got tractors instead of bullock driven ploughs (well some still use them of course because they can’t afford tractors.) And they got pesticides and herbicides etc The first health food shop I came in contact with was …can’t remember its name right now, something like ‘Good foods’ or ‘Good earth” They are not really our western style of health food shop. Not strictly vegetarian even cause they bake ca
