Dear brothers and sisters,

Greetings! We trust that you have had a brilliant Fourth of July and are feeling rested and renewed.

We are pleased to say that recently we’ve made progress in our quest to purchase American grown products,wherever possible. We feel that it is tragic that so many foods that originated here can only be found abroad. Consider, for example, the hazelnut. Most organic hazelnuts, nowadays come from Turkey. This is telling, as the hazelnut is native to the forests of the Northwest. After a considerable search we are pleased to say that we have located a grower in Oregon.

The same holds for sunflower seeds. They are native to the States, but nowadays, nearly all come from China. Here again, after a lengthy search, we have located American grown sunflower seeds. As with the hazelnuts, the sunflower seeds we are now getting, look and taste much better.

The pumpkin too, originated here. After all, what could be more American than pumpkin pie? Yet finding American-grown, organic pumpkin seeds has proven challenging. We simply were not able to locate a source. However, we’ve gotten together with some enterprising people in Oregon and are delighted to say that the pumpkins are growing! The seeds should be ready in November.

Here’s a photo of the pumpkin patch. It’s in the Williamette Valley, in Oregon, one of the most fertile agricultural regions in the US.

Organic pumpkin seeds return to America!

We are pleased to present a video by Master Live Food Chef Chaya Ryvka creating a Strawberry Maple Parfait. This is the fourth and finale video in our four part parfait series.In this video you will learn to assemble a beautiful raw parfait.The other three parts can be found in our previous newsletters or you can visit our channel on YouTube.

Chef Chaya Ryvka’s magnificent videos have been gracing our newsletters for some time. She tells us that she has just entered the Living Lights "5 in 5 Hot raw Chef Recipe Contest".We would like to invite you to vote for her. Here is a link to cast your ballot: http://hotrawchef.com/5in5Vote.html#

Our new products include Organic Fine China Jasmine Green Tea and Organic White Hawaiian Blend. Try making a solar infusion by putting a tablespoon or two of tea in a gallon jug of spring water and leaving it out in the sun for a few hours.

Our Victory Garden sale this month features Milk of Paradise, our cashew/macadamia blend, Coconut Goji Berry Butter, Brazil Nut Butter, Hazelnut Cloud, and Black Sesame Tahini. May we suggest filling peach halves with our nut butters and topping with tiny squares and triangles of our Vanilla Innovation Chocolate Bar.

We delighted to present a summertime recipe,Raw Vegan Blueberry Cheese Cake by Barbara with Rawfully Tempting. It is brimming with aliveness.

Our World Mind, features an article on the serious situation involving the nuclear power plant at Fort Calhoun in Nebraska that is being inundated by flood waters. The author draws an eerie parallel with Japan:

"The unfolding situation at Fort Calhoun reads a lot like the Fukushima disaster. Officials have been downplaying the severity of the situation from the start, and yet it has only continued to get worse, despite their empty promises. First it was the fire, then the loss of power, then the establishment of a no-fly zone around the plant, then the breaking of the berm, and now the apparent flooding of various facilities with no end in sight."

Consider this yet another wake-up call to a nation that has become estranged from its roots. No one is going to do it for you; it’s up to you. In this birth time, it is up to you to teach your fellow Americans to choose life in everything they do.

May you and family prosper in good health,

Jesse Schwartz, Ph.D.

Hazelnut Cloud
Hazelnut Cloud - Alive and Organic! New!

Hazelnut Cloud - Alive and Organic! New!

For many years I've been a fan of the creative nut butter blends you've come up with. I've tried them all, and Milk of Paradise was always my favorite.
Well, move over Milk of Paradise! My new love is Hazelnut Cloud. It has everything I adore beginning with cacao which is married to hazelnuts, almonds, and vanilla for a rich chocolatey flavor that has me obsessing,waiting with baited breath until I can sneak another spoonful. I was a bit worried that the honey would cause a blood sugar spike, but it doesn't. I'm able to enjoy something sweet that's also loaded with antioxidants, chia seeds, and the Living Tree Community love-vibe. You've outdone yourselves.
Put Hazelnut Cloud in a gallon jar, and I'll buy it!"

San Francisco

"Hello dear people at Living Tree Community!
As always, thank you for doing what you do for farmers and for delivering such delicious and healthy food to us.
Thank you also for your "Hazlenut Cloud" gift. It is absolutely delicious and the texture of it is really great.
Thank you!"

Black Tahini
Organic Raw Black Sesame Tahini 8oz

Organic Raw Black Sesame Tahini 8oz

I bought a jar of your regular tahini, and it immediately became my favorite. But, no longer! I decided to try your Black Tahini for its increased nutrient profile and was amazed at the flavor and creaminess of it. I've have tried other brands of both regular and black raw tahini and yours is in a class by itself. I like it especially in a smoothie made with coconut water, carob/cacao, bananas and mesquite, or one with water, ground flax, bananas and grapefruit. I also love 'regular' hummus made with home-cooked organic garbanzos (all other ingredients being raw) and can't wait to try your Black Tahini in that. Thanks for this amazing product."

Sincerely yours,
Stephanie K.
