Food Fact: There Are Many Health Benefits to Grass-Fed Animal Products
Meat, eggs, and dairy products from pastured animals are ideal for your health. Compared with other commercial products, they offer you more "good" fats, and fewer "bad" fats. They are also richer in antioxidants. Just as important, grass-fed animal products are free of added hormones, antibiotics, and other drugs and chemicals.

Recipe Idea: Cinnamon Soy Pancakes
These pancakes are light, fluffy and delicious. Not just for breakfast, they also make wonderful snacks. They freeze very well and can be defrosted and warmed up in the toaster right out of the freezer.
Makes about 10 pancakes (enough for 2 hungry eaters or 3 not-so-hungry eaters):
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
1 cup soy milk
2 tablespoons umeboshi plum vinegar
1 tablespoon light olive oil
Canola oil (for oiling the skillet or griddle)
Whisk the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl, and in another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together until well blended. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients to make a spoonable batter (add more soy milk if necessary).
Lightly oil a skillet or griddle and heat to medium or medium-high. Spoon batter onto the hot griddle and cook until golden, then flip and cook the other side until golden. "Guten Appetit!"

Why Didn’t We Think Of That?
Our friend Kyla suggested spicing up the rice for our meals with a bit of garlic salt – what a great idea!
As a result we will add a spice rack to our rice bins with suggestions for different ways to add more flavor to the rice for different dishes.
