Video: On Board the Red Oak Victory Ship
Dear brothers and sisters,
We visit the site of the Kaiser shipyards in Richmond, California. It was here that 747 ships were built during World War 2.
With ships being sunk daily, Britain and America desperately needed a way to keep material moving across the Atlantic. In response, the coastal United States mobilized to build thousands of large cargo ships known as Liberty Ships. They would be built even faster than the enemy could sink them. Richmond built more ships than any other shipyard, turning out as many as three ships in a single day.
Kaiser and his workers applied modular assembly line techniques to build the ships. This production line technique, bringing pre-made parts together, moving them into place with huge cranes and then putting them together with the help of “Rosie the Riveter” and “Wendy the Welder”.
The Red Oak Victory Ship is a triumph of the American spirit.
Let’s go onboard!

Recipe: Cucumber Avocado Salad
by: Sweet As Honey
A keto low-carb cucumber avocado salad ready in 15 minutes and that is also vegan-friendly.
- 1 large English Cucumber cubed
- 3 ripe Avocados cubed
- 6 Small Cherry Tomatoes cut in quarters
- ¼ cup Pine Nuts or sliced almonds or sunflower seeds
- ¼ cup Italian Flat Parsley finely chopped
Trim the English cucumber ends. Keep their skin on or peel off if you prefer. Cut cucumber halfway lengthwise, then cut into small cubes. Set aside in a large bowl.
Cut the cherry tomatoes in quarters. Set aside in the bowl with diced cucumbers.
Cut avocados in half until you hit the stone. Then, with your hands, rotate both avocado parts to open. Next, remove the stone and, using a sharp knife, cut the flesh into cubes - see my picture above in this post for tips and tricks.

New! Items For July
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
