Food and Household Products
The following list of potentially useful links for food and household items is far from comprehensive. Please let us know if you find additional resources you think others would find helpful. We also have book suggestions, which include cookbooks, listed elsewhere on the site.
You should follow the diet that has been prescribed for you, even if one of the following resources sells or advocates a product that is forbidden. For example, almost all natural foods stores, whether retail or mail order, sell a lot of soy products. You should not purchase these. White flour is contained in many products, and even if it is organic, it is a depleted food compared to whole-grain flour.
