Creamsicles are not very healthy, but these homemade creamsicles are! Because we’re using grass-fed cream and pastured egg yolks, these creamsicles are rich in vitamin K2, the fat soluble activator that prevents cavities and helps build strong bones. And they’re sweetened with honey instead of sugar (or high fructose corn syrup).

On Thursday, August 3rd, 2011, Rawesome, a private organic food buying club in Venice, California, was raided by the FDA, CDC and the LA Sheriff’s department. Thousands of dollars of food was confiscated and/or destroyed. The owner, James Stewart, was taken away in handcuffs and thrown in jail on a felony offense.
I’m headed downtown this morning for a raw milk rally at the Los Angeles County Courthouse (215 W. Temple St, LA CA, 8 am – please join if you are local) to protest the raid on Rawesome organic foods buying club yesterday.
Three people have been arrested and spent the night in jail, including James Stewart, the owner of Rawesome, Victoria Bloch, volunteer Weston A. Price Foundation chapter leader of Los Angeles, and Sharon Palmer, farmer and owner of Healthy Family Farms.
One of my favorite summertime salads is an Italian chopped salad. We enjoy this at least once a week in the summer.
It’s easy to make, very good for you, and bursting with the flavors of summer produce. And you don’t have to heat up the kitchen.
If you don’t have all of the ingredients on hand, you can make it anyway. Just add or subtract as necessary. That’s the beauty of a chopped salad — it’s a great way to use up leftovers.
