What A Great Idea
Discover the art of buying food in bulk! Now this doesn’t mean you have to buy 25 pounds of almonds. But if you go to stores that put those 25 pounds of almonds in bulk bins for you to choose from, you get to benefit from their bulk purchase cost savings! Here are some of the foods we purchase from the bulk bins frequently: almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans, macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, buckwheat groats, steel cut oats, dried coconut flakes, raisins, dates, dehydrated pineapple, dehydrated apple rings, and dehydrated banana chips. Sometimes you can even get nutritional yeast, goji berries, cacao nibs and hemp seeds in bulk quantities, too.

Fun In The Kitchen
Are you familiar with the water experiments done by Masaru Emoto? In one experiment, he analyzed frozen water crystals that had been exposed to different kinds of words. Those exposed to negative words were terribly misshaped and unattractive. Those exposed to positive words formed beautiful symmetrical crystals like fancy snowflakes. His experiments showed how the energy of words, and even thoughts and intentions, can affect physical matter. How can you benefit from this information? Take advantage of the power of positive energy by placing positive words and beautiful images in your environment, especially in your kitchen! If you want to go one step further, take a Sharpie marker and write a positive word, like Love, on your favorite water glass! Then those beautiful water molecules will become a part of you!

Didja Know?
Didja know that most people have toxic levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and aluminum in their bodies? These metals can enter our systems through our water, food, products we put on our skin, and the pollution we breathe. Over time, these metals accumulate in the tissues to harmful levels and can cause damage to organs, lower energy levels and reduced mental ability. But luckily, nature has provided us with an easy solution. It’s cilantro! This simple little herb is a powerhouse chelator for lowering the body’s levels of heavy metal toxins. So add it to your favorite green juices or enjoy it in a salad or other raw dish. Its unique flavor goes especially well with salsa or Mexican dishes.
