"Eating well is about more than just food on a plate-it's a ceremony, a celebration, and an art form. I believe that eating artfully is the easiest way to enhance your day-to-day life. We eat every single day, and if we really stop to savor it, then our world becomes richer. It's that simple. So take a moment to brew a beautiful cup of tea, gather around a table with your friends, enjoy a meaningful meal. Because quality food is sustenance for our spirits as much as our stomachs."

Raw milk cheese
Let's Talk About...
Controversial though it may be to many, raw milk is what our fore-bearers drank regularly. They had fewer -- if any -- allergies, and grew strong and healthy. However, raw milk is not all the same. In fact, like it's meat, the cow's diet is the most important factor in the nutritional-value of milk.
Ideally, raw milk should come from cows that are clean, well-cared for, and fed only fresh, organic, green grass. Clean raw milk is chock full of healthy amino acids and beneficial enzymes.
Grain-fed cows -- an unnatural diet for them to begin with -- produce a starchy milk that isn't easily digestible for humans. And barely for cows themselves.
Studies have shown that over-feeding starchy grains can affect the acidity of the cow's stomach environment and change fat and nutrient levels. (References).
As for pasteurized milk, the process kills beneficial bacteria and enzymes, diminishes vitamin content, and promotes pathogens.
