Trinity: When I first made these walnut truffles I thought I was going to melt with delight. Perhaps it was a reflection of the multi sensory experience when I took my first bite; soft, sweet, rich, melt in the mouth chocolate covered sensual deliciousness. Difficult to imagine so much from such an easy recipe with only 5 ingredients. Yet, using good quality organic ingredients (including raw homemade chocolate), makes the essence of these truffles quite divine. The best things in life don’t always have to be difficult at all. If you don’t want to cover them with chocolate, then it’s even easier – simply roll them in desiccated coconut or ground nuts.
On April 15, Federal Judge Susan Oki Mollway dropped a bomb in [the case of] Monsanto vs. Maui. She ruled that the case cannot go to Hawaii State Court, but will remain under her federal jurisdiction. The federal government’s support for Monsanto is even greater than the State Government of Hawaii’s. And the will of Maui County voters—to put a temporary block on Monsanto’s toxic, local, GMO/pesticide experiments—is now diluted at a new remote level. Maui County can’t enforce the vote, and neither can the State of Hawaii. Now a federal court will decide whether to nullify the will of Maui voters. This is dictatorship.

The meat industry pumps livestock with antibiotics. How much are they putting in, and why is this a growing concern?
The term “superfood” gets bandied about a lot (as in, too much). The darling of both the media and marketers, it’s a moniker that imparts special status upon certain foods, and often those items are shipped across the planet to find themselves in the fancy pantries of those seeking magic bullets. And while goji berries and acai and all of their exotic cousins may indeed be chockablock with antioxidants, there are plenty of equally worthy super-duper foods that don’t require exorbitant travel efforts to end up on your plate.
