Dear brothers and sisters,

Over 90% of Americans are overweight or obese; of the remaining 10%, most are smokers or have illnesses that keep their weight down; only 2% of Americans can be said to be healthy.  More Americans are overweight and beset with illness than ever before.

The economy has been in the doldrums for over a decade.The one response has to print to more money. Over $30 billion is pumped into the economy each week. In the 70s, US government debt was under $1 trillion, now it's $28 trillion. No wonder there are  bubbles on Wall St. and bubbles in the housing market. Inflation is beginning to soar.

Unlikely as it seems, we draw an analogy between the pandemic and the bubble epoch. In both cases, the underlying causes, apparently, are being ignored.The short term prognosis is for hyperinflation followed by an economic crash.

Yet we go forth confidently. We trust in your wisdom and good sense. You will pull us through as you did so dramatically after Pearl Harbor; ultimately, you will build here a garden for the American spirit.

  • 3 to 4 cups cut vegetables or enough to fill a quart jar (cauliflower, carrots, green beans, etc.)
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled and slightly crushed
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes optional OR coarse ground black pepper
  • Other optional seasonings: dill, oregano, thyme, etc.
  • 1½ - 2 tablespoons sea salt*
  • 1 quart filtered water if on a public water system, or if well water isn't good

New! Items For July

California Heritage Extra Virgin Olive Oil

It's back! We are delighted to be offering it to you again.

Living Tree Community Foods California Heritage Olive Oil is rich in antioxidants. We invite you to rejoice in its robust, sharp flavor. Experience how its pungency enhances the flavors of food.

Our California Heritage Olive Oil has a high available biophenol content: 605 ppm (parts per million) compared with 222 ppm for most extra virgin olive oils. In other words, its biophenol content is 2.7 times the average. Very high phenolic content and excellent stability should provide long shelf life of over a year as well as beneficial health value. This olive oil has, along with its bitterness and pungency, mineral and green vegetable organoleptic characteristics.

Tibetan Black Barley - Alive & Organic

Living Tree Community Foods Raw Organic Tibetan Black Barley is provided by Oregon Grain & Bean, with this crop grown on an organic farm in Idaho. Tibetan Black Barley, with its bran intact, retains its firm, plump texture during cooking, making it perfect in soups, stuffings and stews. It’s also great when mixed with other grains due to its somewhat chewy, contrasting texture.

Coconut Butter - Alive and Organic

Living Tree Community Foods Organic Coconut Butter is created in Berkeley, California from alive, raw coconuts. We make it slowly, in small batches, to give it a wondrous, creamy texture. Try it on fruit slices. Goes so well with sliced dates, figs and raisins. Savor its fragrance and rich texture.

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic

Living Tree Community Foods Organic 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. A favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.

Coconut Oil – Organic and Extra Virgin

Living Tree Community Foods Organic Coconut Oil is Extra Virgin and Unrefined. The flavor is mild with a fresh coconut taste and a strong coconut aroma. The color will vary from white to very light yellow. The oil will liquefy around 80 degrees and then re-solidify with small crystalline structure if cooling rapidly or large crystalline structure if slowly.
