FEATURED ORGANIC FRUIT

Lychee Fruit – Order Extra $6/lb

lychees

  • Research studies suggest that oligonol, a low molecular weight polyphenol, is found abundantly in lychee fruit. Oligonol is thought to have anti-oxidant and anti-influenza virus actions. In addition, it helps improve blood flow in organs, reduce weight, and protect skin from harmful UV rays. 
  • Litchi, like citrus fruits, is an excellent source of vitamin C; 100 g fresh fruits provide 71.5 mg or 119% of daily-recommended value. Studies suggest that consumption of fruits rich in vitamin C helps the human body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.
  • Further, it is a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as thiamin, niacin, and folates. These vitamins are essential since they function by acting as co-factors to help the body metabolize carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
  • Litchi also contains a very good amount of minerals like potassium and copper. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids help control heart rate and blood pressure; thus, it offers protection against stroke and coronary heart diseases. Copper is required in the production of red blood cells.

  3. Line the sheet pan with the parchment. Pipe 2 ½ inch wide disks of meringue ontot the sheet pan in rows spaced evenly apart (they will expand so leave some room in between) Using the back of the spoon swirl the meringue to form a few peaks on each disk.
  4. Bake in the center of the oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 300 degrees and bake until the meringue has puffed up and cracked on the top and the surface is lightly browned to the color of café au lait, about 30 minutes more
  5. To make the kiwi sauce, puree the peeled cut up kiwi slightly (if you do it too much it with pulverize the seeds and make the sauce look likes it’s pepper-laden) then pass it through a fine strainer. Add sugar to taste and chill.

Local Organic Produce Delivery Not GMO!

Eat Organic Not GMO Food

Buying organic food presents us with important decisions each and every day. But have you considered the wide reaching implications of conventional food genetic engineering?

Genetically engineered seeds are created in a lab by chemical companies like Monsanto; the process involves removing the genetic material from one organism and inserting it into the genetic code of another to create various characteristics or traits.

The vast majority of GE seeds on the market today are designed to withstand heavy, repeated spraying of increasingly potent herbicides, or to produce an insecticide in the crop itself, leading to extreme environmental pollution and internal poisoning.

It used to be the case that weed killers were sprayed prior to planting, as they would, of course, kill both wanted and unwanted plants. So, if sprayed on crops, the crops would die too. That was until the development of genetically engineered seeds such as ‘Round Up Ready’ resistant corn and soy.

The resulting GE crops have the ability to withstand multiple herbicide sprayings, which means that farmers can spray the crop directly without killing it, throughout the growing season, constantly drenching your food with poison. This has added hundreds of millions of pounds of toxic chemicals to our fields every year, polluting the air, water, land and our own bodies. Herbicides are now being consumed widely in our diets.

The chemical compounds in herbicides has already killed the majority of our bee population!Local Organic Produce Delivery

It doesn’t stop there, however. Nature being nature, and far more resilient than today’s science may credit, unwanted species of plants have become resistant to herbicides at an alarming rate. Herbicide resistant pigweed and other weeds now invade more than 67 million acres of American crop land. This resistance has led the chemical companies (Bayer, Dow, Dupont, Monsanto and Syngenta) – who now own and control the majority of our food supply through their domination of the seeds from which our food is grown – to ramp up their chemical arms race against nature.

You will no doubt have heard of ‘Agent Orange,’ used by the US military in its chemical warfare program in Vietnam. According to estimates by Vietnamese advocacy organizations, at least three million Vietnamese suffer serious health problems from Agent Orange exposure, including birth defects in children and grandchildren of those exposed.

What does this have to do with our food? Well, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is now reviewing an application from Dow to approve GE, 2,4-D resistant corn and soy. 2,4-D was a major component of Agent Orange. If approved, millions more pounds of this hazardous chemical will be sprayed, polluting our food, water and air. Further, these companies are “stacking” genetically engineered traits of resistance to chemicals so that the seeds and the plants that grow from them can withstand not one, but many forms of toxic chemical applications.

The result? Hundreds of millions of pounds of toxic chemicals being applied to our fields and our food every year. And because our Food and Drug Administration seems to be more interested in catering to industry than protecting public health, none of this has to be labeled in the U.S. even though President Obama promised to do so over 5 years ago!

Organic agriculture stands in complete contrast to this industrialized system of synthetic food production. In fact, from 1995 to 2011 organic agriculture was responsible for the offsetting of an estimated 62 million pounds of toxic, synthetic chemicals when compared to use on conventional and GE corn alone.

2. Grown with the intention of overcoming nature’s natural processes by routinely adding toxic chemical inputs to the soil and to feed the plants? (Conventional)

An extension of the T-bone and Porterhouse steaks, Sirlion Tips meat is officially part of the short loin section, where Filet Mignon comes from, a wonderful cut of meat that grills to perfection. Natural Grass Fed Beef is extremely low in fat!

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Place the Sirloin Tip steak in a plastic bag with a marinade of choice. Coat all sides and allow it to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Prepare the grill for direct heating. Turn the burners of a gas grill to high heat 10 minutes before cooking time. For a charcoal grill, when the briquettes appear gray, they have reached the highest temperature.

Step 3

Place the Sirloin Tip steak on the grill. Cook on each side for between six and eight minutes for medium rare. If flare-ups occur on a charcoal grill, temporarily move the steaks out of the path of the flame until they subside.

Step 4

Transfer the flap steaks onto a plate. Allow them to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes as the juices redistribute.

Step 5

Place the steak on a cutting board. Slice them diagonally into thin strips to shorten the protein fibers and increase tenderness. Serve immediately.
