Quinoa is packed with protein and nutrients and best of all, it’s delicious. This dish can be served warm or cold the next day as a salad. It seems like a lot of ingredients but it comes together quickly.
Ingredients (always use organic when possible):
1 cup of quinoa
2 cups of vegetable broth

2-3 large kale leaves with stems removed and chopped

This recipe has three ingredients: spaghetti squash, bottled organic BBQ sauce and a bun. It is a healthy meal that is perfect for a school/work night. You can pop the squash in the oven and tend to things around the house while it cooks.

I realized this smoothie had 3 of the 8 most nutrient dense foods (hemp seed – in this case hemp milk, chia seeds and berries) listed by Drew Canole; a juicing and health expert.
Ethan made this with our hand-held emersion blender. Continue reading “Super Food Snow Day Smoothie”
“No thanks, we’d rather not know what’s in that box of food stuff,” said the people of Washington state and California.
Not really, they were just bamboozled by brilliant and brilliantly deceptive ad campaigns costing $70 million dollars.
Last year Proposition 37 in California and just this month Ballot Initiative 522 in Washington State asked voters if they wanted mandatory labeling for foods containing GMOs in the respective states. Both states failed to pass labeling laws at about the same margin, 48% yes to 52% no. Continue reading “The Good, the Bad and the Imposter Organic Brands”
