honey varieties in bottles
Mar 2018

Honey is a good-for-you (in moderation!) sweetener. But a lot of honey in the U.S. is cut with cheaper, less wholesome corn syrup. This is unethical. This is illegal. And it’s a lot more common than you’d think.

Adam S | Co-Owner.  Exotic enough to tantalize your taste buds, with harissa, capers, and North African spices. Normal “tomato sauce enough” you can still put it on spaghetti.  I also like to dump it over steamed broccoli.  Or I use it as a base for pizza, with sharp cheddar & Moroccan oil-cured black olives.

CBD is a healing compound from the hemp plant, a close relative of the marijuana plant. Contrary to popular belief (and a lot of seedy marketing), CBD does not get you high! It is, however, useful for certain kinds of pain and agitation.

Pesto in the Vitamix

Vegan pesto — pesto without cheese — is arguably a more versatile sauce. On pasta, spooned over protein, as the base of a risotto… And of course you can always add cheese later!
