Video: Supercharge Your Green Drink

Dear brothers and sisters,

In over 40 years of the vegan/vegetarian and live food movement, of conferences, symposia and lectures, we can say confidently that we know of nothing more enlivening and healing than finely divided greens – parsley, lettuce, kale, celery and chard – blended into a “green drink”.

We have it for breakfast and drink six days a week. It is delicious and brimming with life forces.

There are ways to make it even more alive. We take pleasure in sharing some enlivening ideas in this video.

With so much appreciation,

Jesse Schwartz PhD

Pour chocolate pudding into goblets or glass dish, filling 1/3 of serving glass. Top with equal amount of strawberry pudding, and finally, top with chocolate mixture.

Featured Item: Almond Butter 16oz – Alive & Organic

We began making almond butter over 25 years ago. Over the years, we have developed a proprietary process: we make the almond butter slowly, over several days. We slice the almonds and never grind them, which exposes the nut to the least heat possible to keep the flavors and properties of the raw nut intact. We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.

We have been buying almonds from California family farmers since 1979. Almonds are a premier source of Vitamin E. A study from Harvard found that people who ate nuts frequently were less likely to die from heart disease and cancer.

We invite you to open a jar and spread our almond butter on a slice of apple. Experience its texture, savor its aroma and taste its whole-bodied flavor.

Banner Hung In Protest of Yellowstone Buffalo Slaughter

Gardiner, MT / Yellowstone National Park:
This morning a large banner depicting a buffalo and a tipi with the message “Protect the Sacred” was discovered by Buffalo Field Campaign patrols as they were documenting livestock trailers loaded with captured Yellowstone buffalo heading to the slaughter house. The banner was hung off of the Corwin Springs bridge that crosses the Yellowstone River, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.

A short time later, Buffalo Field Campaign received the following statement:

A Call to Action: Save the Buffalo of Yellowstone Park:

As the last resisters in Standing Rock hold off the pipeline, so do the last remaining 5,000 indigenous Buffalo here at Yellowstone Park. Every morning up to 100 of the sacred Bison are exterminated during a government-sponsored population control program. Today, at dawn, at least fifty of our Buffalo brothers were shoved into trailers and hauled to slaughter. There are 1,500 Bison that are slated to be captured and slaughtered.

Yellowstone Herd Bison are descendants of twenty-three Great Plain’s Bison who survived the 19th century extermenation campaign, managing to eke out a living in the corner of the National Park. Once, they numbered 60 million, and ranged the entire continent, supporting millions of Indigenous lives. Since 1901, they have managed to repopulate in this harsh reservation style habitat. However, each year through government mandate, Buffalo are trapped and slaughtered by contract killers–the pregnant mothers have their offspring ripped from their wombs. These last remaining Bison live precariously under govermental control and continue to be pushed into oblivion.
