Chocolate Delights, Flax Seed Cones, & Natural Disinfectant
One of my favorite things to do is to visit Farmer’s Markets and meet and try new delectable, organic, hand-made products! Time to give some props where they are due! Here are some of my recent favorites. Enjoy!
Coracao Confections Truffles.
www.coracaoconfections.com or catch them at the Tuesday afternoon Berkeley Farmer’s Market on Derby.
Raw Daddy’s Flax Seed “ice Cream” Cones.
James, the creator of this fun and delicious product, dehydrates flax seeds into a cone shape and fills them with incredible mixes of raw veggies, and or nut butters to create truly innovative flavors. You can buy the flax seed cones separately and use them instead of bread or a tortilla. MUCH healthier, full of omegas, fiber, and raw enzymes. I first tried one at the Underground Farmer’s Market. Location changes for this “secret” market, but if you want the details, get on the mailing list with Forage S.F. You can also check out: www.rawdaddyfoods.com.
Cloud of Protection: Defense Against Illness, Bad Vibes and Stinkiness.
This is a lovely alternative to using antibacterial hand sanitizer constantly. Many “hand sanitizers” contain triclosan, a chemical which can disrupt hormones, impair detoxification, and is very toxic to critters living in our waters. Using antibacterial products frequently can increase your resistance to antibiotics over time, leaving you in a terrible bind should you ever REALLY need antibiotics. If you’re concerned about “germs” use this product instead! It contains essential oils that fight airborne bacteria and viruses. It smells fantastic…
I discovered this product at the Bee Hive Farmer’s Market in Berkeley on San Pablo and Cedar. Visit their website at: www.ByNieves.com.
Let me know what you think and I’d love to hear from you regarding some of your fabulous, healthy, and local new discoveries.
Yours in Health,
