    I’ve shared two posts this week: one recipe and one on how to save water! I think I may not have linked the “One Easy Way to Save Water” up correctly, but you can find the correct link on the side of the page under the “Popular Posts” header. Thanks for hosting!

    This is a great veggie burger recipe from Molly Klatzen. A few changes makes use of some highly under used kidney beans! So delicious.

    I found the process verse organic post to be quite entertaining.

    Today I thought I’d share my families new favourite dish, asparagus salad. Roasted potatoes with asparagus, bacon, goat cheese, walnuts, mmm it really is scrumptious.

    Thanks for hosting every Monday Sarah!

    Looks like some good stuff this Monday! Thanks for hosting, Sarah. I linked up to my post on homemade chai tea at home. I love chilled chai over ice in the summer, it is so indulgent tasting! But good for you since there is no fake food. See you later.

    I just posted my favorite dessert recipe: Pear Cobbler. It is gluten-free and also is made with mostly raw ingredients. People lick the pie plate clean when I make it for potlucks or cooking classes. Enjoy!

    HI Sarah,
    I shared my delicious Banana Coconut Cream Dessert and two articles: one on the important issue of the American Dietetic Association trying to gain a foothold over all Nutritionists through legislation in over 40 states. It is CRITICAL to stop this attempt to push conventional dietetics on everyone! I hope people read it and sign the petition. The other article is about the Small Farm Summit held on Long Island last month — a truly uplifting event!

    By the way, I loved your watermelon article — I almost posted on that myself!

      Jill, thank you for bringing this to my attention. As someone who is following my passion and pursuing a midlife career change to holistic nutrition, this situation is incredibly alarming. It is truly sinister that the ADA has quietly introduced legislation in over 40 states with the not-so-hidden intention to make their industrial food pyramid driven, processed food oriented agenda the law of the land and push natural health nutritionists out of business.

      Everyone in those 40+ states needs to contact their state legislators asap.

      How do we sound the alarm even louder?

      For anyone who hasn’t learned about this, you can read about it here:
      “New bills have been introduced in a number of states that will give the ADA a monopoly over the practice of nutritional therapy–these are the people in charge of the wonderful hospital food. Please take action in your state to stop this power grab and ensure consumer choice!”

      And here
      “The ADA is clever. It gets legislation passed under the radar, when no one is looking. And natural health nutritionists are getting a rotten deal.”

      And here
      “Clearly, the American Dietetic Association is trying to infiltrate its agenda into every aspect of nutritional therapy. Under the guise of offering a license it is vying for a monopoly of the vast nutritional therapy market. Backed by massive food corporations they can win over unsuspecting legislators. It is up to us, the grassroots to voice our opinions and prevent the destruction of the alternative nutritionists. The American Medical Association overpowered the entire homeopathy profession in the early 1900′s and they virtually disappeared until only recently. Do not let this happen to the nutritionists.”
