come to grips with the fact that we are in-deed what we eat and how we eat it, andwhat we eat eats (both plants & animals)and how they eat and how they’re raised?Many and probably most of our modernailments and diseases are direct results of our industrial diet and our industriallifestyle (toxins).Better living through chemistry has beena two-edged sword. We ALL enjoy luxu-ries, conveniences, time savers, and back-breaking work savers that are marvelousblessings.

we are, it’s what we do.” It’s what they be-lieve in.We are blessed to have a number of dedi-cated, family-owned and operated, organic,sustainable-agriculture farms and ranches inour North Texas region. We all need to real-ize the long-term benefits to our families of eating the high-quality, nourishing food theyproduce. We need to support these “war-riors,” to encourage their children to embraceand preserve their legacy, and to encouragemore to join their ranks.We need
small, American familyfarms, not fewer. We need to encourage
genuine free trade,
between local farmersand their communities. Join co-ops. Buy theirproducts directly or through the smallerhealth-food stores. Stretch your budget.Learn to eat less higher quality food ratherthan more and more empty processed calo-ries.Read, get informed, get active, educatedyour kids about real food, and talk to farm-ers when you can. You’ll be glad you did!
Rooibos (“roybus”) from South Africa has 10x more antioxi-dants than any other tea. Green teas are high in polyphenols.Black teas are high in antioxidants. Caffeinated coffee is high inboth antioxidants and polyphenols.Six years ago, the Kaplans began importing green organiccoffees from respective countries to bring higher & healthierquality to the DFW region. They sell these fine coffees and teas
directly to commercial & retail customers
at the Dallas Farm-ers Market, on their web site, or over the phone. They also sell
to restaurants, hotels, and other businesses.At HAYC, we like the organic Ethiopian!
