Video: People Who Eat More Nuts And Seeds Have Increased Lifespan and Decreased All-Cause Mortality by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.

Dear brothers and sisters,

We’ve re-opened after closing our production plant in observance of Passover. Thank you for respecting our tradition.

May we invite you to plant a garden this Spring.Plant a victory garden as did your forebears during the war. It will be an expression of your indomitable energy that will, one day, renew, regenerate and re-create this American earth. Make it alive with lettuce, parsley, chard, kale, sweet corn, melons and squash. Let’s agree that no tomatoes taste as good as those you grow yourself!

It is both sad and tragic that despite so many people being out of work, food prices are starting to rise. A garden may make a real difference. If you live in an apartment we urge you to join a community garden.

We’ve included a video on fast growing veggies you can plant right now.

We feature a most informative video by Joel Fuhrman MD on the nutritional value of nuts and seeds. He exemplifies vivacity and depth of understanding.

Please be sure to try the creamy zucchini soup recipe.

We are here for you. Please send us your comments and suggestions.

May we wish you and family good health, prosperity and success in these trying times,

Recipe: Vegan Creamy Zucchini Soup (7 Ingredients!)

by The Vegan 8

This Vegan Creamy Zucchini Soup is only 7 ingredients and is oil-free! It is loaded with flavor and is super creamy and smooth, thanks to pureed zucchini, bell peppers and a kick from jalapeno.


6 1/2 heaping cups (845g) peeled and diced zucchini, 1/2 inch pieces (I used 6 medium to large zucchini, but please weigh for accuracy if possible.)
3/4 cup (120g) chopped red bell pepper
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups (300g) low-sodium vegetable broth, divided (I really love the Pacific brand, the flavor is amazing. Use a good quality flavored broth.)
6 “hot” pickled jalapeño slices from a jar (use 4 or 5 if you don’t want it overly spicy)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon fine sea salt and grind of fresh ground black pepper
2 teaspoons (10g) fresh lemon juice
Optional toppings: pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, croutons or freshly chopped jalapeno

Letters From Dear Customers

Ever since I stumbled onto your almond butter (the live version) I am in LOVE with your products!! There is no almond butter ANYWHERE that compares with yours! I have bought other raw brands, but yours is so smooth and silky. Then I tried the Tahini…WOW! Same result. So smooth and silky it makes the best hummus!!! Thank you for your wonderful products that have enhanced my life greatly!!


Dear Friends at Living Tree Community,

I received my order today and I want to thank you very much for sending it. I am certain that everything will be delicious! I know people appreciate your work more than ever right now. For example, hypothetically speaking, if someone has the coronavirus and have found that eating solid food (for some strange reason!) makes it more difficult to breathe, that doesn’t happen when one of your delicious nut butters is spread on a juicy apple. Importantly, at the same time, this enables that same individual to know that they are getting excellent, wonderful nutrition that will support their health. On behalf of any person that might notice that, I thank you very much.

Stay well,
All the best,

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

Green Split Pea – Organic

Green peas are believed to be a distant relative of the field pea that was native to the Middle East and Central Asia. Since prehistoric times, dried peas have been consumed and were prized by the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, China and Rome.

Green split peas are not only tasty and simple to cook, but are also a good source of protein, iron and dietary fiber.



Vanilla Powder – Organic

We have brought Organic Vanilla Powder back, despite its high price, as we have gotten so many inquiries. It is considered by some to be a culinary indispensable. It is made by pulverizing the whole dried beans to a fine powder. It is well suited to incorporation into liquid-sensitive mixtures, such as some icings and melted chocolate, where even a small amount of liquid could create a problem. In addition, the flavor of vanilla powder is more intense than that of most extracts and does not dissipate even with prolonged cooking. Vanilla powder will keep well, stored in an opaque, airtight container in a cool, dry place.
