Sweet Grill Additions

By Bridget N. Jones, LMT

Are you looking for something different to grill this summer? Try fresh fruit! It’s a nutritious and colorful way to add exciting flavor to your backyard party. Fruit is comprised mostly of water and sugars. The heat of your grill will caramelize the natural sugars and reduce the water content, concentrating the flavor. Also, when you eat the fruit while still warm, it is luscious!

Good Fat? Bad Fat? It’s Enough To Drive You Coconuts!

By Sandy Beck

For years, “fat-free” was the mantra of healthy food. Then we learned that our bodies need fat — the right kind of fat. That’s when things got confusing. So, allow me to present a sort of “fat primer.”

Nutty for Homemade Nut Milk

By Bridget Noel Welch Jones, LMT

Making raw nut milks from scratch is a fun and healthy choice for you and the planet.

I love these drinks because they eliminate the packaging of store bought milks, don’t require something made largely of water to be shipped across the U.S. (which uses lots of fuel), and they are very fresh and healthy. No mystery ingredients, no preservatives.

Plus it’s non-dairy, which is better for many folks and for the cows!

If you would like to see GMO foods labeled, now is a critical time to contact your elected officials. Right now, Congress is debating a proposed law that would block mandatory GMO labeling at the national and state levels. Titled The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, this bill establishes new barriers to a national mandatory labeling system, and undermines the public will by nullifying GMO labeling laws already on the books in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine.

New Leaf Market Co-op Partners with Seed Matters – and YOU Could Win an Organic Garden Kit

We usually don’t think about seed when we sit down to eat our cereal in the morning or tuck the kids into their cotton sheets at night, but it all starts with seed. And the seed we sow affects the quality, nutrition, cost and environmental impact of all the food we eat and every fiber we wear.

Spring Body Cleanse

If the thought of spring cleaning your body through detoxification brings up confusion or fear, well it’s no wonder. Health experts have always been divided on the merits and potential perils of detox diets, with some saying it’s necessary to regularly flush harmful toxins from your body, while others denounce the whole notion as faddish and potentially dangerous.
