Take Three Lily Farm’s Online Fermentation Class

“While the act of fermentation is microbial and understandable with the use of science, the art of fermentation is a cosmic one. The art dances and teaches the fermenting artist. Through technique we have gained the ability to utilize and co–create, while the ferment acts on its own. It is for this reason, the most experienced fermenter still expects the occasional surprises. You see, this “controlled” process is still quite wild and independent and we can gain a sense of confidence and surrender from this knowledge. By understanding our reliance on our gut flora, we discover a course of action that promotes a positive future. Our genetic inheritance is the only property we truly own and have the potential to pass to our children. This is the only possession we can expand and nourish as our own.” Chef Frank Giglio on fermentation And, that last part is a statement my epigenetic-loving self endorses- I about cried a tear of joy when I read that- it’s the very reason I work in epigenetics. Our ancestral data, …

Could Your DNA be as Important as Your Trust Fund?

If along with a lineage of successful careers, trust funds, and summer homes we could leave behind vastly useful health information that simultaneously saves and improves lives, wouldn’t you be hip to that idea? If the legacy we endow is highlighted by a powerful personal choice that contributes to enhancing the wellbeing of our loved ones, nearby communities and eventually society collectively, you’d be up for that, right? SO, have you had your DNA tested? To what degree can self-discovery be collectively advantageous? I know, so many questions… Let’s decode. Full article at Poppy & Seed. Artwork by David Aragon.

Radish Tonic The Chalkboard Magazine Thinks Is Better Than Botox

Ready to trade fine lines for smooth summer skin? Packed with anti-aging and longevity conferring herbs and superfoods, this skin-soothing juice tonic means out with the old and in with the new! If there’s one place on the body that is telling of time and lifestyle, it’s our facial and neck skin. While there are some pretty amazing topical skin foods on the market now, most of us know that to erase the “signs of the times” from our skin, it requires us to commit to working on it consistently. Endocrine-disrupting environmental pollutants that travel via air, water and food don’t do our skin any favors and why we really need to renew tissue health from within. Bonus with this recipe? It rejuvenates while it detoxifies. Pair my edible sunscreen with this skin-plumping tonic for all-around skin protection. Recipe for the radish tonic here at the Chalkboard Magazine.
