Quote Of The Month
It is not by resisting or running away from, but by that deep act of surrender that the divine is realized.
And that amazingly does not take time. Surrender can only be now.

Apple Cherry Tourt

A tasty Topping of shredded apple in a cherry cream over a pecan coconut crust.

The first thing you need to do is blend the cherry cream. This is a peace of cake! no pun intended.
Put about 1 cup of water in your blender (vitamix or blendtech) and add:
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbs Vanilla Flavoring
1/2 cup dried cherries and blend on high speed to a smooth cream. It should be just a little softer than peanut butter. If it is to thick you can add a little water, if to runny then add more cherries or dried turkish apricots. Now pour it into a mixing bowl and add 2 apples shredded. You can use a food processor to get that done quickly.

Now make your base.
Put into the food processor with the "S" blade:
1 1/2 cups pecan
1 1/2 cups dried coconut threads
1 cup dried turkish apricots
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Blend it till it gets sticky start to clump together. When you can squeeze it in you hand and it holds its shape it is ready. Now take it out and press it into a pie pan. Line the pan with a piece of paper so you can dump it out when it is ready.

To put it all together:
Once you press the base into your lie pan, place a serving plate or cake plat over the top of the pie pan, face down. Then flip the whole thing over so the base falls out of the pie pan and onto the plate. Remove the pie pan and peel off the paper from the base. Now take you cherry apple mixture and spread it on the top. You can garnish with nuts, raisins, goji berries or even a nut or coconut cream

Raw Chef Dan's Tip Of The Month 

"Learn one thing to add to your life that will also cut your budget"
With the economy in a downturn and not looking to get better anytime soon, cutting the budget can be on the top of the list. We often do things, buy things or go to places out of routine never questioning our ability to fulfill that need in a better more rewording and sometimes cheaper way. Some things that always comes up at the new year with resolutions and all, is to eat better, get in shape and or save money. What myself and many others are doing this year will affect all three. I personally am learning to grow some of my own food. Now living in a small apt in NYC I don't have the space for a garden but I can grow my own sprouts and maybe even some greens, we will see! Other things you can do may be to supplement your electricity with solar panels, wind power or add a magnetic generator to your system. There are many other things like learning to use the internet to generate income. Learning to let go can also be a huge one for you; clean your house and sell off things you don't need or use anymore, cancel all subscriptions and memberships that you do not utilize... Cutting the budget often can shed unnecessary financial bourdons as well as the stress and worry that goes with those expenses giving you a feeling of freedom and accomplishment long over due. So take a look at what is available out there and grab one that suits you and dive in.
Learning is freedom and your God given right!

News On The Forefront

7 food you want to avoid for better health in 2010

1. Canned Tomatoes
The expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A

The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Acidity -- a prominent characteristic of tomatoes -- causes BPA to leach into your food.


 2. Corn-Fed Beef
The expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of books on sustainable farming

Cattle were designed to eat grass, not grains. But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. A recent comprehensive study found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

3. Microwave Popcorn
The expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group

Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize -- and migrate into your popcorn.

4. Nonorganic Potatoes
The expert: Jeffrey Moyer, chair of the National Organic Standards Board

Root vegetables absorb herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides that wind up in soil. In the case of potatoes they're treated with fungicides during the growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting. After they're dug up, the potatoes are treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting.

5. Farmed Salmon
The expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany

Nature didn't intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT.

6. Milk Produced with Artificial Hormones
The expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility

Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers.

7. Conventional Apples
The expert: Mark Kastel, codirector of the Cornucopia Institute

If fall fruits held a "most doused in pesticides contest," apples would win. And increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body burden of pesticides with Parkinson's disease.

Alert of the Month:
New Study Reveals Health Hazards of Monsanto's Frankenfoods
Three Major GMOs Approved for Food and Feed Found Unsafe

In the most comprehensive study yet of the health effects of three of Monsanto's genetically modified corn varieties, researchers from CRIIGEN and the French universities of Caen and Rouen have highlighted a number of new side effects linked with their consumption. Their study of Monsanto's 90-day feeding trials clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, as well as damage to the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system.

Their research was made possible when the European government obtained Monsanto's raw data and made it publicly available for scrutiny and counter-evaluation for the first time.

The researchers have concluded that all three GMOs that they have studied contain novel pesticide residues that will be present in food and feed and may pose grave health risks to those consuming them. They have, therefore, called for immediate prohibition on the import and cultivation of these GMOs and have strongly recommended additional long-term (up to two years) and multi-generational animal feeding studies on at least three species to provide true scientifically valid data on the acute and chronic toxic effects of GM crops, feed and foods.
