If you want a healthy meal this is the best place in the area. With a huge salad bar rivaling whole foods and a large counter of precooked options there aren't too many places you can go wrong.

Have gone to Marlene's for almost 20 years. It's been a lifesaver. The other big chain stores in the area try to copy the organic and healthy products, but usually at higher prices. Example is the kale has been a dollar less per bunch than at the big chain stores lately. You just have to know what a reasonable price is and if it's too high at Marlene's then buy it elsewhere. If you want healthy foods and healthy body care products and supplements then Marlene's has the best selection and prices, consistently. I found glass reusable washable straws for my homemade smoothies at Marlene's, not some local chain.

Huge selection of natural foods. They are responsible about purchasing all their products. As much local as they can and ingredient lists.

I was pleasantly surprised with their produce prices and variety. I got a organic lunch for about 6.00. I had a samosa and lentil paties. My friend got a slice of apple pie. The bakery offeeings looked amazing for about 3.50 to 4.50 a slice. The prices for some things were high such as candles, perfumes, lotions, suplements. All in all I will be back for their produce and deli. They have a nice seating section if you want to stay and eat. I recomend the parmesean cheese corn cakes. Sounds weird but very delicious.

I love their soup and sandwiches, and if you are in the mood for something sweet I recommend the no-bakes they are so good

Love having stores like this around. I know what I buy here is quality and the staff are always helpful. I always learn something or get a new experience every time I shop.

Three Trees Yoga & Healing Arts Center in Federal Way has offered a variety of yoga classes for all ages and levels of ability for 10 years. During that time, numerous other healing modalities have also found a home there. Here, some of those practitioners describe their work in their own words.

“Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been used for thousands of years to treat disease and restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. In my practice, I treat each person individually and holistically, designing a treatment plan unique to you.” Robynne Knight, L.Ac., EAMP 206.707.2031

“Mind-body interventions are an effective, evidence-based approach to not only manage stress, but tap into your own innate ability to thrive.” Karen Schwisow teaches mindful yoga and meditation to individuals and groups including 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Resilience Training courses. 253.224.8246

“Reflexology is a Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) modality using gentle and firm pressure on maps of the whole body located on the feet and hands. Found to reduce pain and other symptoms of many ailments, reflexology is also great for health maintenance.

“Combining occupational therapy, yoga teaching, and sports medicine with Thai massage training, I offer the generations-old modality, Thai Yoga Massage. Popular for centuries across Thailand and now in the West, it is a combination of acupressure and yoga-like stretching. It’s like having yoga done for you.’ ” Contact practitioner Sandi Koch at 253.318.8651 or at

Being new to the Pacific Northwest, I am excited to join Marlene’s to share my knowledge of nutrition and plant-based meal planning as a registered dietitian. I am an advocate for plant-based nutrition and I believe the evidence is clear that plant-based diets help prevent and treat chronic disease, help manage weight and increase energy while being satisfying, sustainable, compassionate, accessible and affordable.....

#Nettle harvesting is enjoying a well-deserved revival in the Pacific Northwest. Commonly known as stinging nettles, this prickly-leaved plant that stings when touched grows well in our region and is sought-after for its ability to relieve #allergies and for its nutritive content: nettle leaves contain the highest plant source of iron. The flavor is similar to spinach.

Before foraging:
• Obtain permission to forage on private land. Many landowners will be happy to let you pick what they consider a noxious weed!
• Wear protective clothing and the heaviest work gloves you can find.
• Pick nettles away from freeway traffic and where they are free of contamination by agricultural pesticides.
• Harvest leaves early in spring, before seed heads appear. Pick the smallest leaves, starting where the second leaves meet the main stem.
• Use nettles as you would spinach and incorporate the leaves into everyday recipes like lasagna, quiche, soups or casseroles!

Here are 2 great #recipes using nettles!

"Delectable Nettle Smoothie"
by Christie Mae Qualey
makes about 1-4 servings

2 cups pure water
3-5 leaves kale (organic)
1 small handful nettles, freshly picked
(use gloves!)
2 large mangos (organic)
1 cup Fuji apple (organic)
1 cup ice

Blend kale and apple.  Add water and part of the mango and blend again briefly.  Add the greens and remaining fruit and ice.

"Creamy Nettle Soup"
by Debra Daniels-Zeller
(serves 4)

1 Tbs coconut or canola oil
1 large onion, diced
1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
4 stalks celery, siced
1 head garlic; cloves separated and peeled
4 cups vegetable stock
1 baked potato, skin removed
10 cups nettles, rinsed
1/4 cup light miso
1/4 cup cashew butter
1 lemon, cut into wedges
croutons or grated Parmesan (optional)

Heat a soup pot over medium heat. Add oil, onion and pepper flakes. Stir, reduce heat, cover and sweat the onions until transparent.
Add celery and press garlic cloves into the mixture. Stir and cook for a few minutes. Blend in 3 cups of stock.
Purée the potato into the remaining cup of stock. Add it to the soup. Stir in nettles and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until nettles are tender.
Purée soup, no more than 2 cups at a time in a blender.
Blend in the miso and cashew butter. Return to soup pot and heat gently for a few minutes.
Serve with a lemon wedge and top with croutons or cheese, if desired.
