If you’re on vacation and forgot to bring some healthy snacks for the family, or just need a meal that’s not fried, Myrtle Beach’s oldest health food store is definitely your best bet.
Part grocery, part bistro, Bay Naturals has been offering wholesome foods, homeopathic medicines, organic beer and wine, and all manner of other alternatives to big-box grocery items since 1993.
With an emphasis on organic and local goods, the inventory here includes breads, meats, cheeses, snacks, herbs, vitamins, shampoo, soaps, protein powders, ice cream – pretty much just healthy versions of what you’d find in any other grocery store.
The kitchen makes everything on-site and uses local, organic ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That said, the menus are all over the map. In the morning, choose from bagels, burritos, eggs, quiches, muffins, sandwiches, more. In the afternoon and early evening, a lengthy list of sandwiches and burritos are available in addition to soups, salads, and quiches.
As a health food store, Bay Naturals caters to all of the diets, allergies, and lifestyles, offering plenty of gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, raw, dairy-free, soy-free, and lactose-free items.
No matter what time of day you’re there, check out the long list of smoothies and hand-squeezed organic juices for a refreshing and tasty way to hydrate.
