FEATURED ORGANIC DESSERT
Kiwi, Apple & Raspberry Meringue Puffs
1/2 cup egg whites, at room temperature (from about 4 eggs)
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar or red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
1 mango, peeled and cut up
1 cup Granny Smith Apples diced
1/2 pint raspberries
2 kiwi, peeled
sugar to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer), whip the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt in a clean, dry bowl until foamy. Add the granulated sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and vinegar and continue whipping until stiff, smooth, and glossy, about 8 minutes more. Place in a pastry bag with a large plain tip.
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.
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
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.
Whip the cream and brown sugar together until stiff. Spoon it in the center of the cooled pavlovas. Top with slices of mango, diced apples and raspberries. To serve, spoon some kiwi sauce on the plate and place down the pavlova.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight and serve.

Top 10 Stress-free Organic Foods
A German study in Psychopharmacology found that vitamin C helps reduce stress and returnblood pressure and cortisol to normal levels after a stressful situation. Vitamin C is also well-known for boosting your immune system.
2. Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes can be particularly stress-reducing because they can satisfy the urge you get for carbohydrates and sweets when you are under a great deal of stress. They are packed full of beta-carotene and other vitamins, and the fiber helps your body to process the carbohydrates in a slow and steady manner.
Apricots are rich in magnesium, which is a stress-buster and a natural muscle relaxant as well.
4. Almonds, Pistachios & Walnuts
Almonds are packed with B and E vitamins, which help boost your immune system, and walnuts and pistachios help lower blood pressure.
Turkey contains an amino acid called L-tryptophan. This amino acid triggers the release of serotonin, which is a feel-good brain chemical. This is the reason why many people who eat turkey feel relaxed, or even tired, after eating it. L-Tryptophan has a documented calming effect and is also found in some teas.
A deficiency in magnesium can cause migraine headaches and a feeling of fatigue. One cup of spinach provides 40 percent of your daily needs for magnesium.
Diets high in omega-3 fatty acids protect against heart disease. A study from Diabetes & Metabolism found that omega-3s keep the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline from peaking.
The monounsaturated fats and potassium in avocados help lower blood pressure. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute says that one of the best ways to lower blood pressure is to consume enough potassium (avocados have more than bananas).
9. Green Vegetables
Broccoli, kale, and other dark green vegetables are powerhouses of vitamins that help replenish our bodies in times of stress.
Beef gets a bad rap because of the high fat content. But, lean beef, especially natural organic grass fed beef contains high levels of zinc, iron, and B vitamins, which help to stabilize your mood during stressful environments.

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.
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.
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.
Transfer the flap steaks onto a plate. Allow them to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes as the juices redistribute.
Place the steak on a cutting board. Slice them diagonally into thin strips to shorten the protein fibers and increase tenderness. Serve immediately.
