Good food brings family and friends together -- especially at Thanksgiving. Are you thinking about how to share your table this year while not blowing your budget? In this podcast we talk to nutritionist and natural foods chef Alana Sugar to get ideas for feasting well without breaking the bank (‘cause those banks don’t need any help breaking about now!). Don’t forget to check out our huge collection of holiday recipes. Whether you are planning a traditional feast or want to venture outside the norm this Thanksgiving, we’ve got you covered. What dish do you absolutely have to have for it to be a perfect Thanksgiving? Let us know!

I'm looking for cage free or free range chicken. Can I find uncooked parts at Whole Foods?

We were in our local Whole Foods, in Colorado Springs this past weekend, and tasted the Thanksgiving samplers in the store. It was absolutely delicious! My 7 year old daughter, who really isn't a big fan of gravy on her mashed potatoes, loved your gravy.

How come this year you are not posting Thanksgiving Dinner packages. Last year, I ordered from you all and this year it seems a lot more difficult. Can you point me in the right direction.

Will you be offering Thanksgiving feasts this year?

@JO ANN - Are you referring to the Thanksgiving tasting that sometimes are offered at stores? If so, you will need to reach out to your local store to see if they have plan for this. If you are looking for the Thanksgiving menu in general, that should be coming out to stores by the beginning of November.

@RICHARD - We should have our holiday menus online and in stores in the next couple of weeks. The menus will feature meals or ala carte items and the store will post their deadline for ordering. We will have you covered!
