Video: Some Reflections on the Greatest Bubble Ever

We celebrate the bubble economy with the stock market bubble, a government debt bubble, a corporate bond bubble, a real estate bubble and a student loan debt bubble. We also ponder the consequences when the music stops playing.

A must see for those interested in aliveness beyond the food they eat.

We welcome your comments and suggestions.

Recipe: Chili Chocolate Mousse Pots

by Unconventional Baker


These simple chili chocolate mousse pots are sooo delicious…dare I say one of the best things that’s happened over here in dessert land recently (ok, maybe on par with this rasmalai… but chocolate is chocolate 😉 ). This mousse is rich, decadent, super satisfying, and the little chili kick it’s got going on gives it that extra special something.

Bonus: it only takes about 5 mins of active time to prepare, and let me just tell you what an awesome thing it is to have little chocolate pots awaiting you in the fridge at the end of the day.

Ingredients
Mousse:

1 cup raw cashews, pre-soaked and strained*
1 ¼ cups coconut cream**
½ cup maple syrup
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt

Optional Toppings:

a light sprinkling of chili flakes
cacao nibs (or shaved chocolate)
a light sprinkling of chili powder

John Muir Organic Trail Mix

Now with Chocolate Covered Raisins!

We have created an organic mix of nuts, dried fruit, and edible seeds to honor John Muir, one of America’s great prophets and seers.

The John Muir Trail in Yosemite National Park passes along a succession of alpine meadows watered by the Tuolumne River and bordered by mountain ranges. To walk on this majestic trail is to gain a feeling of warmth and gladness.

 

 

 

Chocolate Covered Raisins – Organic


We begin with California grown, organic Thompson Seedless Raisins and coat them in chocolate.

An ecstatic snack! Imagine in school lunches! Imagine taking this along on the John Muir Trail!

 

 

 

Golden Prairie Gluten Free Rolled Oats – Organic


These oats have more protein and healthy fats, and less carbohydrates than most other whole grains. This grain is high in beta-glucans, and contains more soluble fiber than any other grain.

Aside from making a hearty cooked breakfast cereal, rolled oats are a great addition to breads, or as a basis for energy bars and granola.

 

 

 

Cashew Butter 8oz – Alive & Organic


Sundried cashews have been transformed into a butter that retains its quintessential cashew flavor. Try it on apple slices, celery sticks or a wedge of persimmon.

Black Sesame Tahini – Alive & Organic


Our Organic Raw Black Sesame Tahini is a glorious, shining black. Made from organic UNHULLED black sesame seeds.The taste is profoundly sesame – robust and enlivening. This is our original creation (others have since tried to copy it). We presented it to the organic food industry at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, California in March 2003. People were delighted, they called it “caviar”!

 

 

Sesame Tahini – Alive & Organic


Tahini breaks out as a Mainstream Ingredient, as consumers look for more unique foods to try. Use it in alive pies, yogurt bars and smoothies. Think of tahini date cookies; combine with cooked chickpeas for hummus, combine with honey for halva.

Made from alive, organic sesame seeds grown by Mexican family farmers. We make our tahini slowly, over several days; we slice, we do not grind.

 

 

 

Pumpkin Seed Butter – Alive & Organic


A delightful pumpkin seed spread made from American pumpkin seeds. Very nourishing and energizing. A balanced source of good protein. High in zinc, a mineral that aids the healing process. Delicious, nutritious, nutty-flavored pumpkin seeds have diuretic properties; diuretics clearly help reduce heart attacks and strokes, an American Journal of Cardiology study says (Wall St.Journal,1/4/05,p.1).

Studies have also shown that pumpkin seeds, which contain amino acids, steroidal compounds, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, may lower the risk of certain types of kidney stones and improve symptoms associated with enlarged prostates. Additionally, pumpkin seeds reportedly contain significant amounts of L-tryptophan. Some studies have also found pumpkin seeds to prevent arteriosclerosis and regulate cholesterol levels.

 

We Welcome Investors

The U.S. organic market in 2018 broke through the $50 billion mark for the first time, with sales hitting a record $52.5 billion, up 6.3 percent from the previous year, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released by the Organic Trade Association.
Characteristics that are identified with organic, such as clean, transparent, fresh and sustainable helped boost organic sales to unprecedented levels, according to the survey.

New records were made in both the organic food market and the organic non-food market. Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent while total non-food sales rose 3.7 percent.
Almost 6 percent (5.7%) of the food sold in this country is now organic. Today’s consumers can find organic products – food and non-food items — in every aisle of their grocery stores. They can choose organic in their favorite big box store, their club warehouse store, even in their neighborhood convenience store, and increasingly on the internet. Organic is no longer a niche market.

Thanks to your kind support, we too are growing. We wish to hire more teamworkers and to purchase tools and equipment. We are seeking long term, stable capital. If taking a strategic position in the organic food industry appeals to you, let’s talk!
