Nutrition Remains a Priority
These are challenging times for all of us. While everyone has deeply held thoughts and feelings that are needing to be expressed, I want to send out two short messages. First, I would like to ask everyone to join me in imagining the type of world we wish to emerge out of this crisis. Do we want to create a world of isolation and separation, where neighbor is pitted against neighbor, or do we want a world of connectedness and compassion? Envision as deeply as your mind and heart will allow, right down to the details. Do we want a world with glyphosate or not? A world of expanding EMF pollution and smog or not? A world where most of our days are spent looking at screens or one where we interact with trees, flowers and birds?
Second, no matter what is happening around you, keep your nutrition as strong as you can. This obviously means different things to different people. For me, it means eating a Nourishing Traditions diet.
With those two thoughts, we are glad we are able to bring back two of our most nutrient-dense products, biodynamically grown Ashitaba Powder, and our Threefold Blend (Savory) Powder, which provides vegetables that represent the three parts of the plant – root, leaf and flower/fruit.
Stay well, and keep trying to find joy in your life.

Is your ovenproof dish buried at the back of your cupboard collecting dust? If so, dig it out, blow away the dust, and give it a good clean; you will need it for this baked fish recipe. This super versatile recipe is a complete meal, especially if you pair it with mashed potatoes; more on this later. You will also love this recipe if you like to keep washing up to a minimum. Although this recipe is made with red snapper, it works equally well with any type of white flaky fish such as cod, tilapia, bass, grouper or haddock.
What pies are on your family’s Thanksgiving table? Are they the usual apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, and pecan? Why not change it up? After all, variety is the spice of life and cake reminds us of celebrations.
This celebration cake is packed with fruits, dried vegetables, healthy fats, and spices. It is similar in texture to carrot cake yet tastes like Thanksgiving. Due to the moistness, mini cake and muffin pans are used, as a standard-sized cake would crumble too easily during the filling and frosting stage. Mini cakes and cupcakes are festively fun and small enough to sample other desserts without feeling overindulgent. (Like that's not going to happen on Thanksgiving 🦃.)
