Dear brothers and sisters,

We are so pleased to say that the new crop of mangoes has just arrived from Mexico. Also we now have the new crop of Halawi dates grown by California family farmers. We appreciate so much your response to the new crop of Medjool dates which we introduced two weeks ago.

Then there is our new Chia, Cranberry, Cherry and Blueberry butter, a symphony of flavors in a lively chocolate base. Our Black Cumin Seed powder abounds with health benefits. We suggest sprinkling it on everything you eat.

We invite you to watch Master Live Food Chef Chaya Ryvka making Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies.

We follow this with a celebration of our Black Sesame Oil. There’s nothing comparable.

Our Victory Garden Sale for October features Snugglespoon Honey, Coconut Butter, Chia Seed Butter, and Coconut Carob Goji Butter. Remember if you buy three or any multiple, you’ll receive an additional 20% discount.

Our World Mind features an insightful article by Bob Schwartz, a real estate professional (and Jesse’s brother) on the state of the Housing Market. We follow this with two articles on “fracking,” the extraction of natural gas from bedrock by pumping a slurry of water and chemicals deep underground. One article discusses the recent incidence of earthquakes in unexpected locations and speculates as to whether this is related to “fracking.”

Then, just in, is a must-see video by a Wall Street pundit who, in a BBC interview, tells it like it is - the Eurozone Market is going to crash. We add only that this might lead to global economic crisis, meltdown,and quite possibly a Depression comparable to the Great Depression. How cheerful! But as live foodists we've got to face reality and prepare!

This is followed by a note on our quest for a business partner. We are seeking a seasoned professional to help manage our growing business.

May we say in conclusion that we are fully confident that you are equal to the tasks that history has set before you. There is no other way than to go forward!

May you and your family prosper in good health,

Jesse Schwartz, PhD

Living Tree Essay Contest - Updated

The 2010 health care reform requires individuals to purchase insurance from private corporations or face a stiff fine. This is a bonanza for the insurance companies. We readily concede that conventional medicine has made enormous strides in treating traumatic injuries but in regard to serious illness it is archaic with its chemotherapy, radiation, mastectomies, prostatectomies and vaccines. The bill, moreover, imposes $500 billion in cuts to Medicare, the government financed and administered program for the elderly put in place almost half a century ago. Instead of being a “reform” it is really a gigantic subsidy for the pharmaceutical companies, insurance conglomerates and hospital chains. Furthermore, corporations will be encouraged to terminate health care for their employees and force them to buy insurance plans providing less coverage at greater expense. There is nothing at all about prevention in the 2000 or so pages of the so-called “reform”, nothing about the realization that you have come to, that the aliveness of the food you eat is related to your overall level of health and well-being. In fact, there’s little or nothing about food, clean air and water, cleansing and vigorous exercise. The sense in which this is said to be a “reform” eludes us. By ignoring entirely the benefits of live food nutrition, a cynic might conclude that it is really an assault on the health and well being of the American people. But this should come as no surprise. No one is going to do it for you. It is your historic task to go beyond live food to life itself. To breathe life back into America. To imbue this people with self-esteem and respect. To show them how to choose life not only in the food they eat but in the way they live. To bring about the “new birth of freedom” of which Abraham Lincoln prophesized.

Therefore, we invite you to outline what a true program of healing would look like. Such a program would encompass community gardens and community supported agriculture. It would emphasize natural healing including acupuncture, homeopathy, fasting, cleansing and so forth.It would embody our American values of decency,kindness and respect for elders. Every American would receive the highest level of care regardless of income. The contest ends October 28th. Submit your essay to: info@livingtreecommunity.com .

First Prize: Four 16oz Jars - Alive Almond Butter
Second Prize: Three 16oz Jars - Alive Almond Butter
Third Prize: Three 8oz Jars - Alive Almond Butter

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

developed by Chef Chaya Ryvka


  • 3 cups almond flour (available through Living Tree Community)
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar powdered
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds powdered
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup cacao nibs
  • 2 Tbs. vanilla powder
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil

Combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl. Once well combined add:

  • 1/4 cup purified water

Mix again until the batter is evenly thickened. If it is still a bit crumbly add some more water until the mixture can be formed into cookies.
If you are dehydrating your cookies:
Form the cookies on a dehydrator tray fitted with a teflex sheet.
Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 4 hours or until the cookies are dry to the touch.
Transfer the cookies onto a dehydrator tray without a teflex sheet. Place them upside down to dry the bottom half of the cookie.
Continue drying your cookies for another 4-6 hours or until the outside is crisp, and the inside is slightly soft.
Enjoy these cookies warm with your favorite nut milk.
Store in an airtight container refrigerated for up to a month, freeze for longer.
Without a dehydrator:
For your cookies on a cookie tray with parchment paper.
Set in your fridge for about an hour or until firm.
Enjoy with a cup of your favorite nut milk.
Store refrigerated in an air tight container for up to two weeks or freeze for longer.


We Celebrate Living Tree Black Sesame Oil

We are delighted to bring you our newest product created from UNHULLED organic black sesame seeds. This is a fragrant and delicious oil, try it on a broccoli bud or celery stick.
Sesame oil is one of the oldest oils known man, with samples as much as 3000 years old being found by archaeologists in India and Persia. This ancient healing oil has a plethora of health benefits. It is a great source of beneficial unsaturated faty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Sesame oil contains polyunsaturated fats as well as monosaturated fats.

Sesame contains three types of unsaturated fats: omega-3s, omega-6s, and omega-9s which are fundamental elements of development and growth. Every tablespoon of sesame oil contains 40.5mg of omega-3 and 5,576mg of omega-6.

Sesame oil is rich in vitamins and minerals. It contains vitamin E, vitamin B6, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, and zinc.

Sesame seeds are rich in Manganese, Copper, vitamin B1, vitamin E and Calcium (3 times more than milk!). Sesame oil has the highest anti-oxidant content among edible plant oils, and contain lignans, which are phytoestrogens with antioxidant and anti-cancer properties, as well as phytosterols, which aid reducing levels of blood cholesterol.

It is an energy rejuvenator and is thus a remedy for a tired and aching body. This fragrant oil is a wonderful moisturizer for the skin and is especially beneficial when applied in a facial massage. A massage with sesame oil protects the skin from eczema, psoriasis and blemishes.
