Our goal is to raise awareness of the dramatic impact of diet on personal and global health. We celebrate the extraordinary benefits of delicious Whole Food Plant-Based Cooking and Eating for Optimum Health and Weight for people of all ages.
A Plant-Based diet provides all nutrients for active living. It consists of whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans. It excludes all animal protein (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, milk) refined grains and added oils while limiting sugar and salt.

Today's delivery from Hattie's Garden
Greens, greens, greens and a little red...Russian and curly kale, Chard, Pak choi, , radishes, beets and crimini mushrooms. We'll eat them raw or sauteed in water, vinegar, wine, veggie broth. NO OIL (It damages the endothelial lining of our blood vessels and causes inflamation.). We'll chop them in salads and make a bed of greens for beans. We'll throw them in soups and stews, chilis and sauces, pizza and pasta. We'll even have them for breakfast with fruit and uncooked oats!
Why so many greens? They're the most nutrient dense food there is, full of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. We power our day with greens. You can, too!
