Video: Intermittent Fasting and Your Good Health

Dear brothers and sisters,

Intermittent fasting is a royal road to health.It can help reduce your risk of chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Moreover, it is a gateway for your body to repair and rejuvenate itself.

Instead of “three squares” every day why not consider skipping breakfast; eat lunch and dinner within eight hours, say at 12noon and 7pm, and make sure you stop eating three hours before you go to sleep.This might might a real difference but please bear in mind that fasting is not for everyone

Please watch the video. We want to hear from you!

Recipe: 5 Ingredient Healthy Ferrero Rocher Truffles

by Further Food

Many people think that eating healthy and wholesome food is only to do with looking good and being at a good weight. But for me it is to do with feeling good on the inside and eating food that nourish the body. Making delicious desserts that taste just as good as junk food but that make you also feel good is amazing.
These Ferrero Rocher truffles are full of raw cacao, good fats and no sugar. They’re a healthy and indulgent treat with all the flavour and texture of the traditional Ferrero Rocher Truffles without all the processed ingredients and refined sugars.

Ingredients

150 grams or 2/3 cup roasted hazelnuts
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons maple syrup
chopped hazelnuts (to garnish)

Instructions

1. Add the hazelnuts into a food processor (keep aside 18 hazelnuts for the center) and blend until chopped into fine pieces.
2. Add cacao, vanilla and salt and blend again.

New! Items For September

Macadamia Nut Butter – Alive & Organic

As you know we’ve been out of alive, organic macadamias all year.We were getting them from Hawaii but they’ve become unavailable. We’ve found a source in Guatemala. Growing in a different clime and soil, their flavor, naturally enough, differs from their Hawaiian counterparts. To some tastes, the Guatemalan variety is a more nutty and earthy.

 

 

 

Joe Soghomonian’s Jumbo Flame Raisins – Alive Organic & Sundried

These raisins are grown by Joe Soghomonian and his magnificent daughter Natalie, storied grape growers of California.

Imagine these in school lunches!

Imagine them as a snack after jogging!

 

 

 

 

Absolut Honeycomb – Alive 11oz squares

We suggest that you consider adding honeycomb to your emergency preparedness kit. It has a shelf life of years.

For culinary adventurers who demand the ultimate in aliveness. An elegant natural confection. We are delighted to say that Absolut Honey is back. This is honeycomb filled with honey just as the bees made it. A single cell of honeycomb is filled with the concentrated nectar of innumerable flowers. What could be more alive? Honeycomb is completely edible. Many aver that honey tastes especially alive when eaten straight from the comb. It is chewy, pleasantly sweet,fresh and vital.

 

 

 

 

Macadamia Nuts (Halves) – Alive & Organic

Halves and pieces. 

As you know we’ve been out of alive, organic macadamias all year. We were getting them from Hawaii but they’ve become unavailable. We’ve found a source in Guatemala. Growing in a different clime and soil, their flavor, naturally enough, differs from their Hawaiian counterparts. To some tastes, the Guatemalan variety is a more nutty and earthy.

Macadamia nuts contain a significant level of protein, comprising essential and non-essential amino acids.

 

 

 

 

Hazelnut Chocolate Almond Butter – Alive & Organic

Created from hazelnuts grown by Oregon family farmers and from almonds grown by California family farmers.

This bee pollen is 100% natural – never artificially processed, preserved or dried. The floral sources include a variety of wildflowers, trees, berries, and grasses. Once collected and cleaned to ensure purity, the pollen is immediately frozen to preserve maximum nutritional value.

 

 

 

Walnut Butter 16oz – Alive & Organic

We’ve put our popular alive, organic walnut butter into a 16ounce jar. This means a savings to you.We make it by slicing raw walnuts into a luxurious spread then seasoning it with a little Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt. Try it on apple slices or carrot sticks, with some raisins and honey drizzled on top.

 

 

 

Turmeric & Honey Butter – Alive & Organic

We’ve renamed our Tumeric Butter- Tumeric and Honey because it  is a winning combination.  We urge you to research what people are saying about the benefits of turmeric and honey.

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.

 

 

 

Cashew Butter 16oz – Organic


This Cashew Butter is sweet and creamy. It’s made from Organic Cashews and our raw Organic Almond Oil. It’s perfect with when paired with cucumbers, celery or even peppers. It’s also a great topping for fruits and desserts. What a delightful way to add some variety to your lunches!

 

 

 

Hemp Heart Butter – Alive & Organic


Hemp Heart Butter is one of nature’s richest sources of complete protein (35%) and Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (40%).

Hemp hearts offer a high concentration of omega 6 and omega 3 in a ration of about 3:1. This exceeds the ratio recommended by health authorities and compensates in part for omega-3 deficiencies in the rest of our diet.

Opportunities at Living Tree Community Foods

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!
