by Master Live Food Chef Kelly of Raw Gourmet La Vie



Double Blueberry Strudel and Cookies

Garnish for Assembly
Ingredients:
1 cup raw organic mulberries (Living Tree Community Foods)
1 cup dried blueberries (Living Tree Community Foods)
1 cup freeze dried blueberries

Blueberry Confiture
Ingredients:
6 cups fresh frozen thawed blueberries with juice (must be frozen because you will need the juice)
¼ cup organic maple syrup
½ tsp. organic vanilla powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
1 tsp. organic cinnamon powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
1 tsp. organic ginger powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
½ tsp. Himalayan pink salt
1 tsp. organic maca powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. whole psyllium husks

Directions:
Place the thawed blueberries with juice into a large bowl. Add in the maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla powder, salt, maca powder, and lemon juice to the bowl. Take some food handling gloves and use your hands to break up the blueberries in the bowl. Mix by hand until half of the blueberries are broken up and the ingredients are evenly mixed. Leave some of the blueberries whole. Add in the psyllium husks and mix them in evenly. Place the bowl onto the bottom of the dehydrator at 115 degrees for 8 hours. Remove from the dehydrator. Using a large spoon, hand mix the blueberries. Once the Blueberry Confiture has cooled, place it into an airtight container into the refrigerator overnight.

Candied Blanched Almonds
Ingredients:
2 cups blanched almonds chopped into small pieces
¼ cup organic maple syrup
¼ tsp. organic vanilla powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
¼ tsp. organic ginger powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
¼ tsp. organic cinnamon powder (Living Tree Community Foods)
¼ tsp. Himalayan pink salt

Directions:
Place the almonds into a bowl. Place all of the remaining ingredients into a measuring cup and whisk them all together. Place the mixed ingredients into the bowl with the almonds and mix in evenly. Place the almonds onto a dehydrator tray with a teflex sheet. Use a spatula and spread the almonds out over the sheet. Leave some room in between them so they can dehydrate evenly. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 5 hours. Take another dehydrator tray without a teflex sheet. Flip the almonds over onto the tray without the sheet. Continue dehydrating for 3 more hours.

New! Items For June

Flax Seed Flour – Alive, Organic and Grown by American Farmers


High in Fiber, but Low in Carbs. One of the most extraordinary benefits of flax seeds is that they contain high levels of mucilage gum content. Mucilage is a gel-forming fiber that is water soluble and has incredible benefits on the intestinal tract. The mucilage can keep food in the stomach from emptying too quickly into the small intestine which can increase nutrient absorption.

Olive Oil Flavored with Crimson Oranges – Alive, Organic & Dry Farmed


This olive oil offers new, unexpected nuances of flavor that will excite and enhance the palate. The olives and the oranges are co-milled; that is, they are crushed at the same time.

Goes well with salads, fish and vegetable dishes.

Excellent for baking and desserts. Ecstatic on vanilla ice cream and with chocolatey flavors.

People were delighted, they called it “caviar”!

 

 

 


Curcumin — A Novel Treatment Alternative for Depression


(Mercola) Curcumin, the active ingredient in the Indian spice turmeric, is a polyphenol with over 160 potentially therapeutic activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects.1

Importantly, it has the ability to cross your blood-brain barrier and exhibits potent neuroprotective properties, suggesting it may be useful for neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Recent research also suggests it may be helpful against depression.

Remember, though, that curcumin is very poorly absorbed, so if you want to use it therapeutically, make sure you use a supplement that is optimized for maximum absorption; otherwise you won’t get the results described below. Many believe that using black pepper helps. And while it does, it is only a marginal increase.
Curcumin Helps Relieve Depressive Symptoms

According to a meta-analysis2 of six short-term, placebo-controlled clinical trials, curcumin “appears to be safe, well-tolerated and efficacious among depressed patients,” and could serve as a “novel antidepressant.” Three of the trials also reported significant anti-anxiety effects.

Another recent study3,4 evaluating curcumin’s effect on depression was done in Australia. A total of 123 people diagnosed with major depressive disorder were included in the double-blind, randomized study, receiving one of four treatments for 12 weeks:

Placebo
Low-dose (250 mg) curcumin extract
High-dose (500 mg) curcumin extract
Low-dose curcumin extract with 15 mg of saffron

After Twenty Years in the Field, We Strengthen Commitment to Remain as Long as it Takes


It has been a busy week here at Buffalo Field Campaign as we wind down our field season and prepare to celebrate the honor of being in the field with the buffalo for twenty years. Board members, former volunteers, and supporters are beginning to arrive to join us for our anniversary party, while others are simultaneously preparing to migrate to the four directions for the summer. Even so, we remain engaged in the field with the buffalo.

Many of our new volunteers who arrived after our field season in Gardiner came to a close have been asking what it’s like there, and as they are all committed to returning next season, we took them on a short field trip to the Gardiner Basin. While there we checked on the fifty-nine bulls who remain captives inside Yellowstone’s trap, awaiting the park’s decision on their 50-year quarantine (domestication) proposal, which BFC strongly opposes. Volunteers were shocked by the industrial construct of Yellowstone’s Stephens Creek buffalo trap as well as the excessive closure around it, and were doubly outraged to see the other imprisoned buffalo in USDA-Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service’s pastures, where, just a few miles north of Yellowstone’s boundary buffalo are being experimented on with the chemical pesticide birth control agent GonaCon. We prayed for these relatives and strengthened our resolve to end these cruel and unnecessary practices. And as we made our way back through Yellowstone toward Campaign headquarters, the wild reached out and touched us, in the form of marmot, elk, pronghorn, buffalo, and grizzly bear, shouting, “Still here! we are still here!” reminding us of who and what we continue to fight for.
