Salad & Dressings
Salads & Dressings: Beyond the Basics
If you love salad and looking for some new ideas and dressings then this is the class for you. This course will include a 45 page book by Chef Alicia Ojeda. The book features 20 of the most delicious and simple-to-make salad dressing recipes you will ever taste, numerous salad ideas to turn your basic bed of greens into a gourmet meal, and all the best tips only a true classically trained chef can offer you.

Chef Alicia has a knack for taking an ordinary salad and making it extraordinary. She credits this to the salad dressing and the little nuances you can add to take your basic bed of greens to a whole new level of flavor sensations.

Class will be taught by Tonya Cole Lightfoot at the new teaching kitchen at The Light Cellar. This book and recipes are amazing and I personally met Alicia and tried her recipes while I was in Texas. I am so excited to be sharing these recipes and book with you. And of course some of the dressing have some Texas flare!

Can you believe we are already in Flu season? Just so you know no vaccine is 100% guaranteed to prevent the flu but they can guarantee that 1% will get neurological damage from a vaccine.
My stance is you have a better chance of surviving the flu if you are really healthy than not being healthy and getting the vaccine. Now is the time to boost your immune system and takes lots of Vitamin D and get off the sugar. Sugar destroys the immune system.
My holistic dentist emailed me this great article that sums up the vaccine scare: H1N1 & Vitamin D. Also, if we had no tv, media or newspapers we would be living our happy little life and not worrying about these scare tactics the government has being imposing on us for the last 70 + years. See for yourself: Swine Flu Propaganda of 1976.
Stop in and ask about all our immune boosters and flu prevention. And you all know I am going to tell you to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in their raw form.
Medjool Dates
Medjool Date
We have the most amazing dates in stock. These medjool dates are all organic and literally melt in your mouth. They are so fresh. We are selling them by the pound or by the box.
We have Extra Fancy and Large. These make an excellent holiday gift and great to make all your favorite treats. Add them in your almond milk, date nut torte, date logs and more.
Dates may be the oldest tree crop cultivated by man. More that 5,000 years ago this valuable food plant helped sustain desert peoples and nomadic wanderers of the Middle East and North Africa. Dates were also considered a delicacy and served by royalty. Dates were introduced in California in the 18th century by Spanish missionaries. At times, dates are referred to as the "candy that grows on trees."

Storing Tips
Store dates in tightly closed containers in the freezer or refrigerator. When stored frozen, in an airtight container, dates can retain their quality for up to one year.

BanffFind A Spring

We will be meeting at the store on Saturday, November 7, 2009 at noon to go and get our own fresh spring water from Banff. I highly recommend you research the health benefits of foraging for your own spring water. There is no water system in the world that can provide the minerals, energy and vibration from natural spring water flowing from the depths of the earth. Watch these videos from the Spring Master himself:

Natural Spring Water w/ Daniel Vitalis Part 2, Episode #206
Natural Spring Water w/ Daniel Vitalis Part 3, Episode #207

For those living in the North, meet us at the Petro Canada  across from Olympic Park at 1 pm.
Remember all water coming from a tap wether it comes from a high dollar ph, ionization, alkaline super duper spend your money water machine, it's still dead chlorinated at one time processed cooked water with no life force to it!
Here is the map:
Heading West on Highway 1 from Banff town, take the Johnstons Canyon turnoff 1A travel down this road a couple kilometers until the road becomes divided just before the divide you will see the spring on your right hand side place bottle on the ledge to collect best to collect with plastic bottle that has a handle and then pour into your glass bottles to store. 
Be sure to click on the image for more in depth information from Daniel.

Kellogg's claims sugary "Cocoa Crispies" cereal can boost your child's immunity 
 (NaturalNews) The world of bizarre nutritional claims by sugary cereal makers just got a little more weird this week when Kellogg's began shipping boxes of Cocoa Krispiesemblazoned with the ridiculous claim, "Now helps support your child's IMMUNITY."

If processed white sugar, partially-hydrogenated trans fat oils and synthetic chemical vitamins could enhance human immunity, Kellogg's would be King of the Hill, but in reality, of all the many foods for boosting human immune function,Cocoa Krispies somehow isn't even on the list.

In fact, you might say that Kellogg's claim of boosting immunity with a sugary cereal sprayed with synthetic vitamins is one of the most hilarious claims yet floated by a cereal company, but what's definitely not funny is the fact that the FDA openly allows this deceptive, fraudulent foodlabeling to continue even while threatening, arresting or prosecuting nutritional supplement companies that make similar but true claims.

Just know that every dollar you are spending you are voting with your dollar. Every time you buy something from China you are building and increasing their economy and country. You may not think it is having an impact on our country but we can not foresee the future. We support local families, farms, produce and service. When you buy non-organic you are supporting that cause and increasing the demand, when you stop buying chemical laden pesticide produce you are voting " I don't want that".
