Dr. Cowan is a longtime holistic physician living and practicing in San Francisco who specializes in helping people heal through diet and natural medicines. His book How (and Why) to Eat More Vegetables describes why eating small amounts of a wide variety of vegetables is key to optimal health.
Dr. Cowan’s Garden came from his vast knowledge and experience with healing through food. Today, the company is a family-owned maker of true organic vegetable powders, and continues his legacy of health and healing by helping people diversify their nutrients with easy-to-use vegetable powders.
What good is healthy food if your family won’t eat it? Our delicious recipes show you how to use Dr. Cowan’s vegetable powders to create meals and snacks your whole family will love!
Now that you know how to create your own sourdough starter, it’s time to make your first loaf of bread. Make sure your starter has been “fed” consistently for at least a few days beforehand. You will also need some sort of baking vessel, such as a combo cooker or a Dutch oven; a large bowl; bench knife or dough scraper; and a razor for scoring. Once you are ready to begin, make a rough bake plan, either written down or just in your head.
From the beginning of Dr. Cowan's Garden four years ago, we wanted to establish close relationships with organic and Biodynamic farms. Additionally, we have had a vision of sustainable farming that could be realized only by thinking “local” and “small.”
To that end, as we shared in March, we helped Redrange Farm in Pennsylvania achieve Demeter certification.
