Though sometimes tainted by a few bad apples caught using growth hormones, the sport of tasteful shelf-sitting is enjoyed by organic foods across America. Help maintain the sanctity of this revered pastime with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of groceries at Naturally Soergel’s in Wexford. This deal is not valid in the orchard, market, gift-barn, or garden-center departments of the store.
With a delectable stock of gluten-free, allergen-free, and chemical-free foodstuffs, Naturally Soergel’s dietary doyens carefully inspect each product sold to ensure that it upholds the noble principles of delicious and wholesome living. Though this healthful haven especially appeals to those with nutritional restrictions, shoppers of all dietary persuasions can find scrumptious nourishment in a wide selection of earth-grown edibles, such as organic fruit snacks ($0.99). The store’s rustic wooden interior houses modern eats that include a selection of Kashi cereals ($5.99) and Annie’s Organics. Those with celiac disease can whittle away their wheat-less hours with a scavenger hunt for more than 900 gluten-free products, including fresh-baked desserts ($6.99). An extensive selection of dairy-free offerings, including soy-based yogurt ($1.39 for an individual serving) and coconut-milk ice cream ($6.19), lets long-exploited cows drop their picket signs in delight.
Diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago, storeowner Amy Soergel founded Naturally Soergel’s as a means of providing better access to natural foods for those with restricted diets. She and her staff can cheerfully counsel inquisitive customers on matters of nutrition, spreading their message of health and wellness as if it were a half-melted slab of soy butter.
