Savory Almond Butter Sauce

1 cup organic alive almond butter (Living Tree Community Foods)
½ cup fresh coconut milk
¼ cup organic agave
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup Bragg’s Organic Coconut Liquid Aminos
1 tbsp. chopped fresh garlic
½ tsp. grated ginger (microplane grater)
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
Note: If you choose to, maple syrup or the sweetener of your choice may be used in this recipe. Just make sure to taste before finalizing the mixture.
Place all of the ingredients into a Vitamix and blend until creamy smooth. Serve!
This recipe makes 2 cups.

This is such a versatile sauce that any recipe can be revived and renewed with it. It can be used as salad dressing, dip for chips, coating for dehydrated veggie and fruit chips, stir fry sauce, just to name a few. It is a condiment that becomes indispensable when looking for something quick and easy to prepare while still being different and delicious.
So make those same old entrees sparkle and shine again! Enjoy!

Alive, Organic Bonus Program – Heritage Olive Oil and Medjool Dates for the Month of December

New! Items For January

Honey Dates – Alive & Organic

Grown by family farmers in Southern California.
Honey Dates are a very unique date that is grown from seed as opposed to an offshoot (cutting) of the parent tree. This provides the Honey Date with unique flavor and texture. Different trees produce variations that are smooth, light, moist and melt in your mouth. Always delicious but never exactly the same.





Deglet Noor Dates – Organic and Machine Pitted

These organic Deglet Noor Dates are a golden-amber color with a translucent skin. A semi-dry date with a delicate flavor. Deglet Noor means “Date of Light.”
These machine pitted dates are great for cooking, baking or salads, and excellent when stuffed with cream cheese. They ship well and keep well. Great for traveling and backpacking – and school lunches too!

Olio Nuovo Olive Oil – Alive, Organic & Dry Farmed

Olive oil aficionados! This is the moment you’ve been waiting for all year!
Olio nuovo is here! The first expression of the olive harvest!The first pressing! The ultra-green first bottling of the new crop! Skimmed from the vat before the sediment has settled, olio nuovo has a creamy texture and heightened notes of fruit, grass and pepper.





Hemp Seed Butter – Alive & Organic

Hemp Seed Butter is one of nature’s richest sources of complete protein (35%) and Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (40%).
Hemp seeds offer a high concentration of omega 6 and omega 3 in a ration of about 3:1. This exceeds the ratio recommended by health authorities and compensates in part for omega-3 deficiencies in the rest of our diet.





Sunflower Butter – Alive & Organic

For your delight we have slowly sliced organic sunflower seeds into a butter that goes well on apple slices as well as celery and carrot sticks. Try adding chopped raisins and dates too–what hor d’oevres you’ll make!





Pistachio Butter – Alive & Organic

This delightful and fresh nut will nourish your body and your taste buds! Our pistachio butter is made from pistachios grown by California family farmers in the rich, alluvial soil of the wondrously fertile Central Valley. We add our raw Black Sesame Oil and sesame seeds to organic pistachios and season them with honey and a dash of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt.

Resistance Training Boosts Well-Being in Your Later Years

(Mercola) “Strong body, strong mind” is not just an expression. Scientific evidence demonstrates regular exercise improves your productivity, sleep quality and blood flow to your brain, while reducing the development of damaging neurological plaques. Unfortunately, less than 25 percent of Americans over the age of 45 engage in resistance exercises, which are among the most important exercises to stay fit and healthy.

In fact, your muscle strength begins decreasing in your 30s by as much as 3 to 5 percent of muscle mass per decade after 30, unless you do something to stop it.

Resistance training, also called strength training, is the strategy you use to stop this natural decline of strength and muscle mass. But, gaining strength is only one of the benefits of resistance training, as this form of exercise also helps prevent osteoporosis, improves your range of motion and improves your ability to do your functional day-to-day activities with greater ease.

When done properly, strength training can even be a form of aerobic exercise and will help you lose weight. After nine months of studying the effects of resistance training on senior citizens, researchers also found the participants enjoyed improved psychological health.
