Getoff. Got it. GOOD!

Spent six hours listening to Dr. David Getoff I have listened to quite a few knowledgeable people. Dr. Getoff is amazing! And on a totally different note, “Get well soon” seems to be a common expression said to those who are not feeling well. If 90% of disease starts in the gut, should we not […]

Organic Consumers Association made me smile today.

The organic Consumers association weekly newsletter had an article about a mommy-blogger who now has …. well, read this excerpt “Never underestimate the power of a mom. Or a blogger. Or, worse yet, a mommy blogger. Leah Segedie was “completely shocked” when she learned that Monsanto and the American Academy of Pediatrics were bedfellows, joined […]

“The Big Fat Surprise” (2014) Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

What if the government’s crusade against fat fed the spread of obesity by encouraging us to abstain from foods that satiate us efficiently? Today I think of Harrison Ford in the Fugitive, where the villains switched the livers to show that “Provasic” (RDU-490) worked. In real life, “the proverbial THEY” (Ancel Keys, Marston White and others) […]

Soil, CO2 and Health

All day Sunday March 1st (while returning from a carbon sequestering conference at Chico State) I was thinking about all the things we heard and trying to make sequestering carbon “sexy” (as Robb Wolf said). Not wanting to minimize what any of the speakers brought to the conference, but here is where my mind has gone … so far! We […]

Mother Earth News and Grass-Fed Beef

A friend sent me the link to a Mother Earth News article centered around getting livestock back on the land instead of buildings and feedlots. Pretty well done in my estimation (if I were a writer I would have said a thing or three differently). Cattle on mineral rich grasses produce less greenhouse gas (and […]

“The mineral that causes more cancer than any other mineral.”

Dr. Richard Olree, from Hillman Michigan, co-authored a book entitled “Minerals for The Genetic Code” The first half of the book is a fascinating read. The second half gets very detailed. Dr. Olree says that Fluorine causes more cancer than any other mineral. Iodine prevents more cancer than any other mineral. Now we are finding that fluoridation […]

What is in our food, that shouldn’t be?

I have read quite a few books and articles and heard a number of speakers talk about the various kinds of bad things we should avoid in our food. Alas, we live in a pop culture and if some of us can’t get it on “I-tunes” well, it just doesn’t seem to matter in our […]

I am thankful for all of my happy customers

I have received a few comments from customers about their experiences with the beef… Just in on Feb 25… We had purchased ½ beef from you in December 2014, and wanted to say that we were very pleased with the processing and packaging from Greenleaf Meats.  We found the butchers had trimmed and packaged everything […]

The “Fibberatti”

I just viewed this video and found it to be right on…! And then Dean Carlson put some “Wall Street” numbers to it.

Why are we breeding the nutrition out of our food?

Plants and animals need vitamins and minerals to survive. As our soils get more and more depleted, the ability to grow a nutrient-rich, heritage “breed” of just about anything is curtailed. Ah. science to the rescue. We have figured out how to cross-breed plants and animals (and now GMO’s are the illogical next step) that […]
