Within the past year or so, I’ve become interested in learning about herbs and their natural benefits on our body & mind. My findings were incredible to me, and even more wondrous was how long humans have known about these powerful things. It leaves me wondering why so many people rely on prescription medication to heal all sorts of illness & wounds.
Anyway, this has inevitably lead me to drinking tea. So I’ve been trying new kinds lately and it’s been fun because there is much variety available :3
I purchased White Tea with Peach, Red Tea with Mango & Orange, Chamomile, Yogi’s Bedtime; Stress Relief; &Calming.
I just had the white tea, which was really yummy. And I’m about to sip on that red tea now! Making work that much better ;)

Alfalfa a member of the pea family, making it a legume. It is indeed a remarkable plant as it can be planted anywhere in the world, at any time of the year, regardless of temperature and climate and it harvests in only 7 days. Perhaps the universal force is making this highly nutritive food easily available to us?
Alfalfa sprouts derived from alfalfa seeds. They are white and thread-like, with tiny green tops. Its juice tastes mild and can be easily mixed with any other juices.
Alfalfa sprouts juice contains a myriad of valuable nutrients such as calcium, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, sodium, zinc.This is the only plant that supplies the full range of vitamins, from vitamin A, B complex (even B12), C, E to K. Alfalfa sprouts placed in indirect sun for a couple of days before harvesting, even produce nutritious blood-healing chlorophyll.
The wide range and high concentration of so many compounds present in alfalfa sprouts juice make this plant highly nutritive.
Anti-oxidant rich: Alfalfa sprouts is the top source of anti-oxidant among all vegetables. By drinking this juice regularly, it could prevent untold number of degenerative diseases. Some examples are heart disease, menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis and even cancer.
Arthritis: A compound in alfalfa sprouts inhibits inflammation, making this plant highly beneficial for arthritis sufferers.
High blood pressure: Eat your way out of high-blood pressure with this plant that contains something magical that helps lower blood pressure.
Immune booster: Drinking alfalfa sprouts juice regularly will greatly boost your immune function as it increases the activity of your natural killer cells.
Leukemia: Amino-acid called L-canavanine, can be a natural agent that is effective to fight leukemia.
Lower LDL (bad) cholesterol: The active components in alfalfa have been tested to lower LDL cholesterol accumulation in the liver.
Short-sightedness: Juice can be responsible in the treatment of short-sightedness.
Ulcers of the intestine: This highly nutritive juice is also very gentle and healing for patients with ulcers in the intestine.
Alfalfa sprouts are easily available nowadays at most health or vegetarian stores and the food section in supermarkets. They usually come in a small square, clear plastic containers in which they were grown.
Buy only sprouts that have been kept at refrigerator temperature. Choose sprouts that are crisp, clean, moist and has no sign of yellowing or rotting.
Refrigerated, it can keep for four to five days, but the “eat fresh” principle applies. Try not to keep them for too long.
I just gotta say, I love herbs. Of all kinds.
I like the herbs that I put in my tea.
I like the herbs that get me high.
I like the herbs that I cook my food with.
Herbs make the mother fucking world go round.
The hippies, were right 1 Make love, not war. It’s a cliché, but it’s as sensible as anything anyone ever said anywhere. The Vietnam of the past is the Iraq of the present. We’re still at war, and would prefer not to be.
2 Natural foods are a way of life, not a lifestyle. Natural foods are not a fad diet. When people eat natural foods, and eat slow food and cook at home, those people enjoy better health. We know that people are committed to eating healthy, natural food because Outpost owners stick around, even during a recession.
3 Buying bulk saves money & the planet. “Unpackaged,” a new store in London recently opened its doors, marketing itself on this premise: customers buy empty containers, fill them in the store and return to re-fill them when they are empty. This keeps prices down, and keeps bottles out of landfill. We agree, and it’s why we’ve been offering bulk grains, soup, tea and spices for decades.
4 Pesticides are harmful. We instinctively know this. A pesticide kills bugs, so why would we want to eat it?
5 Cooperation is better than corporation. It works for Outpost, of course, but consider others. Think about the recession. Think about the banks. Then think about the credit unions. The credit unions fared better because of their cooperative, less risky business model.
6 Knowing where your food comes from makes sense. “Know your farmer, know your food,”. Whether it was a slogan on a sandwich board in 1973 or a clever piece of copywriting out of Washington , the fact remains that consumers are less likely to suffer from food-borne illnesses if they know where their food comes from. This isn’t just about touchy-feely community relations. Recall the October New York Times article exposing how ground beef products can be made up of different cuts of meat from different slaughterhouses — impossible to trace. The reporter told the story of dance instructor Stephanie Smith, whose E.coli-tainted hamburger meat put her in a coma for nine weeks. How can we keep food safe when we don’t know where it came from? We can’t.
7 Herbs are nature’s pharmacy. If a natural remedy can cure what ails you, why use anything else?
8 Logo t-shirts are cool. Just ask Alterra or Milwaukee’s Teecycle Tim, who runs a business selling vintage logo shirts.
9 So are Red Wing boots with vibram soles. It’s how you wear ‘em.
10 Freedom. People everywhere just want to be free.
11 Yoga. People everywhere just want to be flexible, strong, calm and pretty.
12 Composting. Even hip NYC urbanites are composting in their teeny kitchens these days. And the mayor of San Francisco made it a rule. If you don’t compost your food scraps, they smack your legs. Of course, San Francisco officials are now coming under attack for supplying residents with toxic composting material, so I guess they’re the ones getting their legs smacked. Lesson learned: It pays to research your compost.
13 Fair trade. It’s only fair.
14 Collecting rainwater. While this is outlawed in some western states, this makes common sense here. Protect that lake, people!
15 Growing our own food. There’s an amazing amount of satisfaction to be gained from eating food you grew out of your own spot of earth.
16 Meditation. This is going to keep on growing in popularity. We are information-saturated; imagine being able to empty your mind!
17 Joplin,Hendrix, Dylan the Stones and the Beatles.
Love them or not, there’s no denying the influence.
18 Community works.
Small-based businesses coming together as a community have pooled their talents and resources to promote themselves, each other, the city and the shop local ethos.
