Staff Picks: dairy, meat and Deepak Chopra

Heritage Hen Farm


Picked by Nancy Kumpulainen, Art Director

“This alternative and holistic farm offers the freshest dairy products around! With around 24 breeds of free-roaming, happy hens that are fed sunflower and flaxseeds, you really get the best tasting eggs you’ve ever had (I refuse to purchase grocery-chain-store eggs ever again!) They also offer raw milk, butter, yogurt, kefir and cheeses created in small batches. Visit their Tres Fresh Farm Gate Shop Tuesday through Friday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.”

Publix Ready-to-Cook meatballs


Picked by Lori Pierino, Senior Art Director

“My ‘Italian’ husband is the chef at our house. He used to make meatballs from scratch until we discovered the Publix Ready-to-Cook meatballs. Find them in the meat section with the other Ready-to-Cook selections. Just sauté them in a pan, or bake in the oven until brown, and add to you favorite sauce. They are delicious—almost the best I have had and much less time consuming than making them from scratch!”


Deepak Chopra

Picked by John Thomason, Managing Editor

“The last time this best-selling spiritual guru visited South Florida, in 2014, he packed B’Nai Israeli to capacity and beyond, with 1,600 people turning out to listen to the Indian-American physician wax philosophic about metaphysics and the nature of consciousness. It’s only natural that after such a resounding turnout, Chopra will speak at an even larger venue this time, the Broward Center’s Au-Rene Theater, on Saturday night. He’ll take the stage at 8 p.m. to discuss his latest book “Super Genes,” in an alternative-medicine-themed lecture that will address “the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellness.”
