The Dirt: Natural Grocers to fill former Hastings location on South Hill – The Spokesman-Review

Posted: October 20, 2019 at 9:32 am


without comments

Natural Grocers is coming to Spokanes South Hill, according to city permit data.

The health food chain that sells organic food and produce will take the space formerly occupied by the Hastings Entertainment store, 2512 E. 29th Ave., near the intersection of 29th Avenue and Southeast Boulevard.

Permits for $820,000 in work have been filed and are under review by the city, but if the store opens, it will join the other Natural Grocers in the area: 4603 N. Division St. in Spokane, and 222 W. Neider Ave. in Coeur dAlene.

The company was founded in Lakewood, Colorado, in 1955 as a door-to-door sales business by Margaret and Philip Isely. According to the Colorado alternative newspaper, Westword, the Iselys then began what was originally called Vitamin Cottage after Margaret Isely became chronically ill and became interested in the growing field of supplements and health food.

Ahead of its time, the store focused on organic, local food and the practice of butchering and using the whole animal. The Isley family meals were filled with tongue, heart, liver and other offal after the prime cuts were taken to sell at the store.

The store name changed to Natural Grocers in 2008 to highlight its grocery selling and move away from vitamins. N.D.

The former Knights Diner, now under new ownership, is undergoing renovations to upgrade its kitchen and add a food prep area.

Fettig Five LLC, whose principals include George Fettig an early owner of several Zips Drive-In locations filed plans in August to renovate the former diner at 2909 N. Market St., according to permits filed with the city.

Fettig Five LLC purchased the site for $100,000 in July, according to the Spokane County Assessors Office.

The Spokane Historic Preservation Office approved plans to extend a portion of the 657-square-foot Pullman rail car to accommodate a new kitchen and add a 1907 Northern Pacific caboose to house a food prep area.

Fettig Five LLC also indicated plans to modify the interior seating configuration of the original rail car, to remove a section of the counter area and add booths, rehabilitate windows, repaint the exterior as well as add handicap ramps and a door.

Coeur dAlene-based Chris & Pat Inc. is the project contractor.

Knights Diner closed in July after more than 37 years of serving breakfast and lunch in north Spokane. Owner Vicki Green told The Spokesman-Review in July the restaurant would be purchased by a well-known local investor who will continue to serve breakfast at the diner, but with a different menu.

Permits filed with the city did not specify the restaurant concept. Fettig did not respond to a request for comment.

The rail car that housed Knights Diner is on Spokanes Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1906 and served the Northern Pacific Railroad as car number 988 on the Yellowstone Park Line before it was retired to the Northern Pacific Yards in Spokane Valley, according to a historic register nomination document.

The car was pressed into service as a classroom for soldiers during World War II.

Jack Knight, a former headwaiter at the Davenport Hotel, purchased it for $600 in 1949 and hired Beadmore Transfer to move the rail car to Division and Jackson streets. He renovated the interior into counters and stools and opened Knights Diner in 1949.

Knight operated the diner for five years. Ownership of the diner changed hands several times before the Greens purchased it in 1982 and moved the rail car to its current location in the early 1990s. A.E.

The Spokane Housing Authority is embarking on a $1.2 million renovation of a building it purchased last year on Nora Avenue, according to permits issued by the city.

The office renovation of the Nora building, 25 W. Nora Ave., will bring many changes to the 19,000-square-foot, two-story building and its basement, including new interior walls and an outdoor patio. The building is two blocks from SHAs headquarters at 55 W. Mission Ave.

Spokane Housing Authority was created in 1972 by the city of Spokane to provide housing assistance to the region. The group serves Spokane, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Stevens, Ferry and Whitman counties, and provides assistance to more than 5,500 low-income families through tenant-based rental assistance and SHA-managed apartment communities.

SHA purchased the building, which was called the Atlantic Professional Building, in July 2018 for $1.86 million.

The work was designed by ZBA Architecture, of Spokane. N.D.

Oregon blue cheese named the best cheese in the world – OregonLive

Posted: at 9:32 am


without comments

An Oregon cheese stands alone.

A blue cheese called Rogue River Blue, made by Rogue Creamery in Central Point, Oregon, has been declared the best cheese in the world at the 2019 World Cheese Awards.

The event took place Friday in Bergamo, Italy, where cheeses from around the globe were judged over a single day by technical experts, retailers, buyers and food writers. They looked for color, consistency, texture and, ultimately, taste to determine the winner.

At the end of the day, the Oregon blue cheese came out on top, making Rogue Creamery the first American cheesemaker to win the competition, organizers announced on Facebook.

According to the creamerys website, Rogue River Blue is made from organic milk, cave-aged nine to 11 months and hand-wrapped in Syrah grape leaves that have soaked in pear liqueur. Its known to exhibit flavors of blackberry, vanilla, hazelnut and bacon all of which would probably pair nicely.

Winners in previous years have included a Fanaost and Kraftkar from Norway and a Cornish Kern from England.

The World Cheese Awards has not yet released the rest of the 2019 results.

Our food, our health – World Food Day in retrospect – Myjoyonline.com

Posted: at 9:32 am


without comments

Last Wednesday was observed as World Food Day. It focused ones mind on one of thebig issues in nutrition today- obesity.

All the introspections of the day brought one to the conclusion that obesity is a problem for both the haves and the have-nots. It is causing serious health concerns for families and nations. One has come tothe realisation that what one eats coupled with ones lifestyle determines ones health status. In other words, the food we consume would determine how frequent our visit to the doctor is.

Fast foods

In afast-movingworld offast foods and out-of-home cooking,one of the agenda for active discussion, therefore, has beenwhat to eat and what not to drinkas experts keep shifting the goal post for us. Today, a glass of red wine is good for the heart, they would tell us. Then comes tomorrow and it would have changed to alcohol is not good for ones health. Yesterday it was eggs are unhealthy in our diets, today it is one can eat up to three eggs in a weekso long as one takes out the yolk.

Unfortunately,in the name of busyworkschedules, families are no longer eatingtogetherat a tablewithfood cookedand servedfrom theirownkitchen. Parents stop by, on their way home to picktake-away dinnersordered from the comfort of their mobile phones. Children have been introduced to so much junk food they prefer the oil-soakedmenuswith the fatty cuts of meatand detest the balanced menus preparedat home.

School feeding programme

Thank God, however,fortheschool feedingprogramme.If done wellwith organic locally produced food items,wewouldgradually be introducing our children to home-cooked nutritious foods.We have some of the best organic foodcropsgrownhere on our soil and they arerelativelycheap compared to organic foods sold elsewhere.We spendscarce foreign exchange importing refined rice andsugar which the producers themselves are running away from.

Coincidentally, as we celebrated World Food Day, a two-day nutrition training programme wason-going in the Central regionorganised by the Ghana School FeedingSecretariat.It was supported by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection with the aim to engage caterers of the school feeding programme.

According to news reports, the training programme was used to sensitise the caterers and introduce them to the preparation and serving of gari fotor, fortified with vegetables and soybeanson the school feeding menu. Though high in carbohydrate, some of us would eat gari anytime due to its high fibre content. That is why Iwould support theintroduction of gari fotor with as many vegetables and beans to make it even more nutritious for our children.

Blessing

The School Feeding Programme in many ways is a blessingtothe country.If the children enjoy the varieties served at school, no doubt they would influence their parents to prepare the same with even better variations at home.

It was at boarding school at the age of nine that some of us first tasted Tom Brown and corn grits porridge. It was atthesame boarding school that one got introduced to gari and beans, gari fotor and gari soakings with groundnuts and milk. All those nutritious servings in thedininghalland in our pantrieshave lived with us to our old ageand we have in turn passed them on toourfamilies with even more variations.

With World Food Day on our minds, let the school meals programme introduce our children to healthy organic homegrown foods that would build their bodies and nurture their brains. The programme managers should insist onmenuinnovationby the caterers andget themassessedon thequality ofinnovations introduced in their menu plans.We could fall on the children to do their end of term assessmentsfor us.

World Food Dayindeedcomes toremind usofthe importance of good nutrition and food safety, especially for our growing children. We should all be made aware of the dangers of out-of-home cooking and begin tosay no to fast and instant foods. Theyprovidevery littleor no nutrients toour bodies.We should help to build a nation of healthy young people and say no to foods that would contribute to obesity and malnourishment.

This couple make cannabis oil that you can add to your food and drink (and it’s all perfectly legal!) – Dorset Echo

Posted: at 9:32 am


without comments

THE cannabis industry is on a roll.

Over the last year, a budding array of hemp products have started appearing on the high street.

Leading this green revolution is Dorset-based, Daiba Organic.

The company sell the compound Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, which has been credited with helping relieve pain and reduce anxiety.

The oil wont get you high and is legal in the UK and Europe.

Its currently classified as a food supplement, but you do have to be over-18 to buy it.

Daisy Smith, who runs Daiba Organic with her partner Bart Majkut, have been selling CBD products since 2017.

Daiba Organics range of CBD infused products include crafted organic oils, tea and chocolate.

Daisy and Bart recommend taking a few drops daily orally or adding to your favourite drinks or recipes.

The oil is grown organically and in accordance with the European Union law.

To extract the oil from the plant they use a cold press extraction process, which ensures the best quality oil with no heat damage.

Daisy, 33, says: More people are becoming aware of the benefits of hemp and CBD products. Its moving away from the previous associations of recreational drug use to the more beneficial properties of CBD. Our oil is 100 per cent organic and our products packaging are eco and vegan-friendly.

The pair describe cannabis as a versatile and powerful plant, packed full of flavour and fragrance, with a whole range of natural benefits.

A World Health Organisation (WHO) report suggests CBD oil could be used to treat anxiety and depression but in spite of the reported health benefits, NHS Englands website said the quality and content of many cannabis-based products is not known. It reads: Some products that might claim to be medicinal cannabis, such as CBD oil or hemp oil, are available to buy legally as food supplements from health stores. But theres no guarantee these are of good quality or provide any health benefits.

Daisy added: Most of our followers are quite astute and already aware of the growing popularity and benefits of CBD products. Our oil is perfectly safe to use, and we make sure we choose the right plants at our farms. CBD oil is currently classified as a food supplement and not a medicine. The government legislation is very strict with claiming any medical benefits, but I can only say that we have many happy customers that are using our oil and they are finding life a lot more pleasant!

Heres one of Daiba Organics recipes, created in collaboration with Epi-Foods, to try at home.

CBD Power Balls SkinFood Ingredients (basic dough): 100g dates, soaked for at least 4 hours or overnight 100g roasted almonds 1 or 2 full droppers of Daiba CBD Oil 5.5% Toppings (optionally): Coconut flakes Matcha ranberry Powder Linseed Grated Almonds Cocoa nibs Grated Daiba CBD Chocolate Preparation: Blend your soaked dates to a fine puree. Chop the roasted almonds with a large knife and mix with the date puree and Daiba CBD Oil into a dough. Form small balls from this dough. Roll these balls through any ingredient from the "Toppings" list above and garnish on a plate or wrap in sandwich paper.

* Daiba products are also stocked at Sunrise Organics and Earth Foods

One quick change you can make today to help save the planet – Stuff.co.nz

Posted: at 9:32 am


without comments

For local food company Ceres Organics, the concept of organics isn't just about food that tastes great and is free from chemical additives. It's about looking after our planet, by protecting the health of our soil, waterways and the air that we breath. It's about about treating growers and workers fairly, paying a fair price for their products, and providing safe working conditions. And it's about encouraging biodiversity and protecting our wildlife. Most importantly, it's about protecting our future.

The issue of plastic packaging has been troubling the team at Ceres Organics for years. "As an organic business, having a positive impact on our planet is at the heart of everything we do, and reducing our reliance on traditional plastics is a big part of this," says CEO, Noel Josephson.

CERES ORGANICS/SUPPLIED

Having a positive impact on our planet is at the heart of everything Ceres Organics does; several of their breakfast mixes come in reusable glass jars.

After many years of working closely with their packaging partners to develop an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional plastic packaging, robust enough to protect their untreated organic products from infestations, oxygen and moisture, Ceres Organics launched their first home compostable bag in 2017. Transparent, resealable and triple-layered to lock in the freshness of the food inside, without the need for artificial inputs, it was the first of its kind in the market.

What differentiates this revolutionary packaging is that it is specially designed to break down in a domestic compost bin, while a lot of other compostable options you will find need the higher temperature of a commercial composting facility (there are only a few of those in the country that actually take packaging).

Since launching their first product in this innovative packaging solution, Ceres Organics have extended it's use to more and more products in their range. They now offer their high-quality grains, their popular Classic Muesli Range, and more recently their Super Good Muesli, and core flour ranges in home compostable packaging.

Home compostable packaging isn't the only sustainable packaging solution Ceres Organics have been working on. They have just relaunched their popular Paleo Breakfast Mix in a stylish glass jar (glass is the company's first choice of packaging and used for about 20 per cent of their products). They have also added a new, exciting variant to the paleo breakfast family, brimming with nutritious nuts and seeds, their Epic Paleo cereal also comes in a reusable glass jar.

It's all part of the company's ongoing commitment, not just to organic food, but to the wider environment.

The Ceres Organics story started back in 1982, when a young Auckland mother set upon a mission to make organics accessible to ordinary New Zealanders at affordable prices.

More than 37 years later, Ceres Organics is New Zealand's leading organics company, offering over 400 organic products for your pantry needs. Two of the company's founding directors, Noel Josephson and Rodnie Whitlock, still work in the business, and are deeply passionate about keeping the Ceres Organics spirit alive.

"It's fundamental to the Ceres Organics philosophy that we source the healthiest, highest quality organic foods from suppliers all over the world who we know and trust to be socially and environmentally responsible," says Noel. "We're not a faceless international corporation, we're a homegrown Kiwi company that cares."

95 percent of tested baby foods in U.S. contain toxic metals, report says here’s what parents need to know – Yahoo Food

Posted: October 19, 2019 at 1:43 pm


without comments

A newstudyfound that the vast majority of baby foods tested contain heavy metals, which can harm a childs brain development.

In the study, commissioned byHealthy Babies Bright Futures(HBBF) and conducted by the toxicology and economic research firmAbt Associates, tests were performed on 168 different containers of baby food from 61 U.S. baby food brands. Researchers found heavy metals specifically, arsenic, lead,cadmiumand mercury in 95 percent of the baby foods tested.

As the report points out, all of the heavy metals are developmental neurotoxins, adding, they can harm ababys developing brainand nervous system and are linked toIQ lossfrom exposures early in life.

The majority of baby food tested (40 percent) contained three different heavy metals, with 26 percent of baby foods containing all four heavy metals. Only nine baby foods (5 percent) were free of heavy metals. Lead was the most common heavy metal, found in 94 percent of baby foods, followed by cadmium, which was in 75 percent of baby foods. That was followed by arsenic (73 percent of baby foods) and mercury (32 percent).

We were surprised that so many of the baby foods had more than one heavy metal,Charlotte Brody, a registered nurse and the national director of Healthy Babies Bright Futures, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. The impact is additive. A little bit of lead, a little bit of arsenic and a little bit cadmium add up.

Infant rice cereal and rice-based snacks were the worst offenders. These popular baby foods are not only high in inorganic arsenic, the most toxic form of arsenic, but also are nearly always contaminated with all four toxic metals, according to thereport.

A new study that tested U.S. baby food found that 95 percent contained heavy metals, including arsenic and lead, which are harmful to children's brain development. (Photo: Getty Images)

Heavy metals, like arsenic, are found naturally in the environment (as well as through pollution) and can enter the food supply through soil, water or air, according to theFood and Drug Administration(FDA).

Certain crops are more likely to absorb these heavy metals notably, rice, leafy greens and root vegetables, such as carrots and sweet potatoes, which the reports says retain more than most other types of fruits and vegetables.

But in some cases, fresh is the better way to go. The report found that peaches and green beans from the baby food aisle are less likely to contain detectable levels of lead than canned versions of these foods, while carrot and sweet potato baby foods have higher lead detection rates than their peeled, fresh counterparts.

Improving food safety standards can make a significant difference. The report urges the FDA to take action by establishing health-protective standards, including a heavy metals testing program for baby food, as well as factoring the cumulative health effects of infants consuming multiple types of heavy metals found in baby foods. When FDA and baby food companies address one contaminant in one type of food, children benefit, noted the report. But truly protecting children necessitates addressing the many contaminants that collectively harm a childs healthy development.

Adds Brody: Parents shouldnt have to worry about this. Parents should be able to buy any food thats on the shelf and know that its as safe as it can be.

There are steps thatparentscan take to reduce their babys exposure to heavy metals found in food. Its worth noting that going organic may not necessarily help. According to the report, Organic standards do not address these contaminants.Consumer Reportsown testing of baby foods in 2018 reached the same conclusion, stating, Organic foods were as likely to contain heavy metals as conventional foods.

However, peeling produce when possible can help by removing some of the heavy metals in the skin although, as Brody says, its a shame because there are nutrients in the peel.

In general, regularly giving your baby different types of foods not just relying on sweet potatoes and carrots multiple times a week also helps. Its likemercury in tuna the best way around it is to just not eat tuna every day, says Brody.

Parents can also make specific food swaps to help reduce a babys risk of exposure to these heavy metals. The researchers recommend:

Swap infant rice cereal for oatmeal, barley, quinoa, buckwheat or multigrain infant cereals

Swap puff (rice) snacks for rice-free ones, such as cut-up apples, unsweetened applesauce, bananas, cheese, peaches and yogurt

Swap teething biscuits and rice husks for frozen bananas or peeled, chilled cucumber

Swap rice from Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas or ones labeled U.S. (all of which have the highest arsenic levels, according toConsumer Reports) with basmati rice grown in California, India and Pakistan or U.S. sushi rice, which have the lowest arsenic levels. Brown rice tends to have more arsenic than white rice.

Swap fruit juice (which can contain traces ofarsenicand lead, along with being high in sugar) for plain water

Reduce how often babies consume carrots and sweet potatoes (both high in lead and cadmium) each week and serve a variety of fruits and vegetables instead

Organic Board to Vote on Whether Nitrates Can Be Used in Curing Organic Meats – PerishableNews

Posted: at 1:43 pm


without comments

WASHINGTON In an effort to remove cancer causing nitrites from deli-type and other processed meats labeled organic, the industry watchdog OrganicEye has petitioned the USDAs National Organic Standards Board (NOSB). At its public meeting next week, the NOSB will consider whether cured organic meats may continue to be processed with nonorganic celery powder, which contains high levels of nitrates. The powder is derived from celery grown with high levels of synthetic nitrogen that are absorbed by the plant and then used as a nitrate-based preservative.

The continued use of this material in organic meat is in conflict with the law that requires all synthetic and non-organic ingredients to be safe for the environment and human health, saidMark Kastel, director or OrganicEye, a project of national group Beyond Pesticides, which bridges consumer, farmer, environmental and public health interests.

The Organic Foods Production Act prohibits synthetic nitrate use in organic crop production and adding nitrates or nitrites in processing. Nitrates and nitrites are prohibited in organic food because of their impacts on human health, which include methemoglobinemia, hypotension, risk of pregnancy complications, a number of reproductive effects, and cancer, the groups lead scientist, Terry Shistar, PhD, stated. Substituting celery powder grown with high applications of synthetic nitrogen, when it has the same biological action in the human body, is unethical and undermines the reputation of organic food as the safest marketplace alternative, she continued. As an alternative to celery powder, OrganicEye suggests that meat processors and retailers can distribute similar products, without preservatives, that would be required to be kept frozen rather than adding nitrates.

OrganicEye is also recommending that the Board remove the synthetic amino acid methionine from the list of allowed synthetic substances, no longer allowing it to be added to organic poultry feed. The additive facilitates industrial-scale confinement operations, rather than managing poultry with outdoor access as required by federal law.

OrganicEye is a project of Beyond Pesticides.

Natural Grocers to fill former Hastings location on South Hill – The Spokesman-Review

Posted: at 1:43 pm


without comments

Natural Grocers is coming to Spokanes South Hill, according to city permit data.

The health food chain that sells organic food and produce will take the space formerly occupied by the Hastings Entertainment store, 2512 E. 29th Ave., near the intersection of 29th Avenue and Southeast Boulevard.

Permits for $820,000 in work have been filed and are under review by the city, but if the store opens, it will join the other Natural Grocers in the area: 4603 N. Division St. in Spokane, and 222 W. Neider Ave. in Coeur dAlene.

The company was founded in Lakewood, Colorado, in 1955 as a door-to-door sales business by Margaret and Philip Isely. According to the Colorado alternative newspaper, Westword, the Iselys then began what was originally called Vitamin Cottage after Margaret Isely became chronically ill and became interested in the growing field of supplements and health food.

Ahead of its time, the store focused on organic, local food and the practice of butchering and using the whole animal. The Isley family meals were filled with tongue, heart, liver and other offal after the prime cuts were taken to sell at the store.

The store name changed to Natural Grocers in 2008 to highlight its grocery selling and move away from vitamins.
