May 12 Happy Mother’s Day
Sampling Carrot Cake with a Twist(recipe on page 2). We’ll have recipe cardsand fennel pollen available for purchase.We turned our backs on our bulk herbdepartment, and the next thing we knew,the best in Helena became one of the bestin the region. Our selection of seasonings,healing herbs and teas was not onlydoubled, but elegantly displayed in new,cleanly-labeled, sparkling glass jars.The man behind this is our herb guy,Andrew Jones. He is, quite simply, anenthusiast extraordinaire with a passionfor exotic tastes. In his words, seasonings“make bad food good and good foodgreat.”We now have 350 bulk culinaryseasonings and other ingredients in thedepartment, including 14 different chilipowders that vary in qualities such asheat and smokiness, about as many driedmushrooms, and various curries, rubs andspice blends. You want paprika on yourdeviled eggs? There are 6 to choose from.Powdered honey, powdered egg,powdered orange rind (for your ownnatural Tang)—it’s all there.Then from Australia there’s wattleseed, which Andrew says tastes like coffeeand is used in everything from meat rubsto ice cream.You can see what we’re doing withfennel pollen in our carrot cake recipe onpage 2.Andrew is personally most excitedabout a French pepper called Pimentd’Espelette, which, like Champagne andReggiano Parmesan, is a controlled namefor a regional product.We have the distinction of beingthe only retail store that sells Meadownishing salts in bulk, 6 dozen of them.Medicinal herbs are of course a worldof their own, and they are well represented.For the more familiar, closer-to-homeproducts, there are the tea blends likeEvening in Missoula from Montana Tea &Spice, along with the Tumblewood Teasline from Big Timber.Browsing by the rows of jars, it’s hardnot to get lost in wonder. Luckily Andrewis there to nd you, at least at the mostlikely times. He’ll help you nd whateveryou were looking for, but don’t besurprised if you discover something morethan that. Just think: if you tried a new producteach day, it would take you more than ayear to go through them all.

You can spice it up!

Locally-owned and part of your community for over 37 years.
Real Food is not only Helena’s bestplace for organic fruit and vegetables, wealso offer the best selection of fresh organicherbs. Fresh herbs are a wonderful way toenhance whatever you’re cooking, fromvegetables to meats and sh.Our year-round selection of herbsincludes bunches of cilantro, curly andItalian parsley and a wide variety of packaged herbs from Herbco.Herbco packages their herbs inconvenient clamshells for ease of storageand increased longevity. Some of theirs wecarry include basil, chives, dill, rosemary,oregano, marjoram, lime leaves, Thai basil,lemon grass, mint, lemon thyme, sage,thyme and tarragon.We also carry a selection of theirmedleys, which are herb mixes specicallysuited to a particular dish. There‘s LambMedley with lemon thyme, Italian parsleyand mint; Poultry Medley with rosemary,sage and thyme; Seafood Medley withItalian parsley, dill and thyme; Pork Medley, which has oregano, sage, tarragonand thyme, and several others includingPrime Rub and everybody’s favorite forthe turkey, the Herbed Bird.During the summer season we alsocarry bulk fresh herbs from the WesternMontana Growers Co-op and a fewselect local growers such asGlory Farm. Look for bulk  basil for homemade pesto orCaprese Salad, bulk mint formint iced tea and pickling dill bunches for home canningprojects.Fresh herbs aren’t just forcooking either. I love to add afew sprigs of dill and Italianparsley to a tossed salad. A
The Produce Beet
Fsh Hbs
by Ed Tyanich, Produce Manager
few mint leaves add a nice touch to a bowlof mixed berries, and fresh cilantro reallymakes a homemade burrito.Herbed butter adds a perfect touchto warm rolls or fresh bread. You can usea single herb or a combination of yourfavorites. I like to chop the herbs neand then blend into softened butter withan electric mixer. These herbed buttersalso are wonderful accompanimentsto everything from grilled salmon toporterhouse steak. Let your creativity ow by adding favorites like fresh garlic, lemon juice or fresh ground pepper to an herbed butter.When cooking with herbs, the nerthey are chopped, the more intense theavor. If you prefer a very delicate avor,the herb can be placed into cheese cloth ora tea ball during cooking.For the best storage of fresh herbs,pat them dry with paper towels afterrinsing and store in the refrigerator. Basil,however prefers temperatures of 55 to 65F, so a cool place in your house might be better than the refrigerator. Leftover herbscan also be frozen to be used in cooking ata later date.For more information on fresh herbs,visit with our knowledgeable produce staff at Real Food. Just like a love relationship, yourrelationship with food can be more orless healthy. It can be based onneed or pleasure. It can join youto others or separate you fromthem. It can be nurturing ortoxic, creative or dull. It can beaddictive or empowering.In various ways I’ve beenencouraging myself and othersto eat a healthy diet based onwhole, natural foods. Some rules I’veembraced are these:Eat foods that are colorful, not colored.Eat foods that are sweet, not sweetened.Eat foods that are avorful, not avored.It seems that such a diet, which wouldavoid processed manufactured foods,would satisfy your hunger better than junk foods, because it would be a nourishingdiet. I’ve also argued that it would be apleasurable diet. I certainly delight in mymorning bowl of fresh berries, yogurt andnuts, sprinkled with bee pollen and cacaonibs.On the other hand, it seems that theaddictive appeal of junk foods is thatthey provide intense experiences, whether because they are concentrated sources of fat, salt and sugar or because theyhave avors added to them. It’slike getting the makeup withoutthe person behind it.Even so-called naturalavorings seem to be making upfor foods that lack substance anddon’t really feed you.So our newly-expanded bulk herb, seasonings and teas departmentstruck a chord with me. There are worldswithin worlds of exotic avors to be found,and they’re the natural legacy of theancient arts of preparing and preservingfoods in ways that enhance both enjoymentand health.Now I’m more convinced than everthat your relationship with food can be everything you want it to be. It can be healing and nurturing, and it can bepleasurable in ways you have not yetimagined.So if your relationship with real food isgetting dull, spice it up. Now is the perfecttime.

SALE $2.79 (Reg. $3.59)When I was in medical school I wasdrawn to learning about the effects of  botanical medicine on human health.One of the most interesting topicswas phytoestrogens, or plant-basedchemicals that have an estrogen-likeeffect when consumed. The beauty of these compounds is that they have amodulating effect, thus providing a truesolution to many problems caused either by too much estrogen or even too little.Phytoestrogens are found in everydayfoods as well as not-so-common medicinalherbs. The most common foods includewhole grains, ax seeds and soy products,the latter two gaining the most attention.Herbs with high phytoestrogen contentinclude but are not limited to red clover,alfalfa, licorice root, verbena, and thyme.Observational studies suggest thatwhen these foods or herbs are consistentlyconsumed over longer periods of time,they may provide a protective effectagainst certain disease such as certaincancers and cardiovascular disease.Determining phytoestrogens’ effects onthese conditions has been difcult at best, but they do appear to have some veryuseful applications in other areas of ourhealth.
Flaxseeds
I encourage many patients to consumeaxseeds, usually ground in a dailysmoothie, as a good source of dietaryber and omega-3 fatty acids. But thelignan component of axseeds mayhave a benecial effect for women aftermenopause.In a preliminary trial, supplementationwith crushed axseeds for six weeksimproved the average hot ash score by 57percent in post-menopausal women whowere not receiving estrogen therapy. Thetreatment consisted of 2 tablespoons of axseeds twice daily.While the response and side effects,mostly digestive complaints, are variable,I don’t hesitate to make this suggestion because of the number of benets it alsooffers.
Soy
We often hear about the benets thatsoy may have regarding bone densityor reducing symptoms of premenstrualsyndrome, but one real impact soyappears to have is in lowering cholesterol.A controlled trial showed that soypreparations containing high amountsof isoavones effectively loweredtotal cholesteroland LDL (“bad”)cholesterol, whereaslow-isoavonepreparations did not.This effect seemsto take place when at least 20 grams of soyprotein is consumed each day in place of animal protein.
Red Clover
Like axseeds, red clover appears tohave multiple health benets, especially forpost-menopausal women.In a double-blind study administrationof 80 mg per day of red clover isoavonesreduced the frequency of hot ashes over12 weeks. It also appears to be benecial foanxiety and depression in this same groupwhen taken for three months.So consider these foods and plants as apart of a greater healthcare treatment plan.If estrogen is the problem, phytoestrogens just may be the solution.
NEW IN SUPPLEMENTS
Simply Slick
® was created by achemist who met the love of his life, but“they had a little bit of a problem withfriction ‘downstairs’.”So the chemist started looking for off-the-shelf solutions and was alarmed whenhe saw the ingredients in most of them.He wondered why anybody would putantifreeze, lye or parabens on themselvesor in this type of product.The chemist decided that forsomething this important (and enjoyable),the product should be designed from the• Clinically proven to beanti-microbial• Made with 95%organic ingredients• Completely watersoluble• Safe to be used withcondoms• Free of parabens,petroleum products,hormones, and siliconeground up (or bottom up, as it were).And thus Simply Slick® was created. Thisformula is based on scientic researchto combine the best certied organicingredients nature offers, empowering theneeds of the modern woman. It mimics thenatural lubrication your body produces.It’s concentrated; so a 2-oz. bottle goes along way (20-30 uses).Simply Solutions brand is committedto bringing nature and science togetherwith healthy and effective solutions.Remember, “glycol is for a car, siliconeis for bath tile and butter is for toast butSimply Slick®, well, that’s for you andsomeone special.”
