In the Five Elements of oriental medicine, wood, fire, earth, metal and water, the earth element is associated with the digestive system and the sense of taste -- so Earth Day is a great day for exploring delicious, sustainable and earth-friendly foods!
According to earthday.org, "The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, mobilized 20 million Americans from all walks of life. Their actions led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Today, over one billion people in 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest civic observance in the world."
Gifts from Mother Earth: Organic Superfoods
I first discovered Organic Living Superfoods as a result of a desperate internet search after our local Whole Foods stopped carrying my granddaughter's favorite chewy dried strawberries (the most essential item in gramma's bribery toolkit!) Once I discovered the wide assortment of Organic Living Superfoods' treats, I also became enamored of many of their additional items, including the pineapple rings, mulberries, goji berries and nuts. So yum!
These healthy and filling snacks are all raw, organic, dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. They are available in different sizes, but the 1.5 oz package fits perfectly in a purse or pocket for a healthful, earth-friendly, on-the-go snack, and you can order a sampler so you can try out several items.
