Video: Chicken Nugget Ecstasy: A Choreography for These Times

Dear brothers and sisters,

We celebrate breakfast cereals, pizza, chicken nuggets, soda, chips and snacks, packaged baked goods, microwaveable frozen meals, instant soups and sauces and much more.That’s right-everything from fake meat to pizza.They are all “ultra processed”. A better word might be “estranged”.

They contain unnaturally high amounts of sugar, salt, processed industrial oils and unhealthy fats.

Excessive sugar, by the way, is especially destructive as it’s a gateway to obesity and diabetes.

My favorite is fake meat-contaminated with glyphosate, made with genetically engineered soybeans, oozing a chemical colored red, genetically engineered to resemble blood. Anything for mouth feel!

Americans not only eat a preponderance of processed food, but 60 percent of it is ultra-processed.

In our opinion, the pandemic is best understood along side the pandemic of cancer, the pandemic of heart disease, the pandemic of high blood pressure, the pandemic of diabetes, the pandemic of obesity, the pandemic of depression and the pandemic of suicide.All stem from a profound imbalance in how we eat, live and relate to one another.

We suggest that we begin the process of healing this American earth by planting a garden this Spring. That is, a Victory Garden, an expression of your indomitable energy that will, one day, build here, a garden for the American spirit.

May you and family prosper in good health,

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,

New! Items For April

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.

Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – Organic

Imagine! Organic California almonds, grown by family farmers, covered with Fair Trade, organic Dark Chocolate. Just the thing for hiking the John Muir Trail or as a snack after gymnastics.
