Real Bulk Willpower Climate & Food Supply Ask the Doc: Love Herbs newsbites What’s New Great stuff on sale AND MORE!

“In our house bulk foods also add an artistic aesthetic to our kitchen. We rarely have a guest who fails to compliment the wall full of unique jars that greet visitors to our kitchen. It takes humdrum storage and turns it into something beautiful.”

Real Bulk

Another Real Difference with Real Food
From our founding, we had a mission that set us apart: to bring healthy foods to Helena. Not just to sell whatever the public would buy but to offer products we believed in, products that meant healthier people and a healthier planet. Back then, we were “hippies” and “health nuts.” Now we’re the mainstream, or so it seems. When you shop at our store, you’ll still find some real differences. We’re a Helena original, not part of a national chain, a single store locally owned and owner-managed. We’ve been part of your community since 1975. We’re Montana’s only certified organic supermarket. But that’s just for starters. Last month we highlighted our awardwinning deli. This month the spotlight’s on our abundance of products, from cinnamon to shampoo, that you can buy in bulk. Real bulk. You probably already know the benefits of bulk. When you buy from our dispensers, your dollar gets more product and less packaging. You save money while saving the planet. By cutting waste, everyone benefits. We sell some of our products as “prepackaged bulk,” which means we do the packaging for you. That makes sense with sticky things like dried fruits, and it can be a convenience to you. But some stores sell all their “bulk” as prepackaged. One retailer recently recommended this because it makes you buy twice as much! Well, we think you should be able to smell your spices before you buy them. And we think you should be able to buy exactly the amounts you want, not a month’s supply or a year’s supply just because you’ve got a quirky relative visiting for the weekend. In a country that wastes 40 percent of its food, that’s a real saving. So when you’re thinking of ways to save money, think bulk. And think about the real differences you’ll find at Helena’s one and only Real Food Market and Deli.

Good Food Is Great
Missoula’s Good Food Store has been awarded a 2012 Community Outreach Award by the Food Marketing Institute. Their Franklin Elementary School Nutrition Program has been providing groceries and lessons to a food-insecure community, earning them their award in the Food Insecurity category. They’ve been a font of friendship and inspiration to us since our founding, and we’re delighted to see them receive this recognition.

When you buy from our dispensers, your dollar gets more product and less packaging.

Where There’s a Will
There’s a way. Or something better!
by Laughing Water, General Manager

Broken New Year’s resolutions make willpower a timely subject, but it’s relevant every day of your life. Along with intelligence, willpower has been found to be the only strong predictor of your health, wealth and happiness later in life. That’s according to a new book, Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest to the 1960s when kids were given the choice to either eat the marshmallow in front of them or wait 15 minutes and get two. It turns out that willpower is a lot like a muscle. It can be developed by exercising it, but when exhausted, it fails. It runs on glucose, or blood sugar. Those few facts support some of the best advice you’ll ever hear. Know, as emotional intelligence advocates have said, that self-control is fundamentally important. Persistence is a key to success. But to avoid caving in, set realistic goals and don’t try to accomplish too many things at once. Human Strength. The research goes back

When it comes to eating, set yourself up for success by surrounding yourself with good choices and removing temptations. It also turns out that people who are most successful with weight loss weigh themselves the most frequently. So monitor your results closely. After all this, you may be discouraged to hear that weight loss is only weakly related to willpower. As we noted last month, there’s a good argument that the overeating hypothesis fails to explain obesity. You can see the sense in that argument if willpower requires glucose and glucose requires eating (although healthy food choices can help stabilize blood sugar). But you can also take that as a liberating thought. Neither your will nor your worth is measured in pounds. To accept yourself requires accepting something beyond yourself, and that can open many doors. It certainly opens many hearts. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Obama Addresses Climate Change During his second inaugural speech President Obama stated his commitment to deal with climate change by leading the transition to sustainable energy sources. “Failure to do so,” he said, “would betray our children and future generations.” (NPR.org, 1/21/13) Indeed, even today’s generations are witnessing climatecaused threats to our food supplies. And as critics have pointed out, in spite of speaking favorably about solar and wind power, Obama has promoted an “all of the above” energy policy that encourages greenhouse gas emissions, which are consistently exceeding scientists’ worstcase scenarios. It will apparently take a major push from the public to change course. (350.org) Nutrition Bias Commercial influences are everywhere in the nutrition field, and professional dietitians are not immune. A recent report points the finger at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), their largest professional association. Its corporate sponsors include the biggest junk-food manufacturers, such as CocaCola, Mars and PepsiCo. Not surprisingly, their sponsored continuing education programs and annual meeting sessions may be less science than marketing spin. (NYTimes.com, 1/22/13) (Comment: This is not intended to knock dietitians, many of whom object to AND’s current policies.) Cheese Is Old We’re not talking about your refrigerator, but perforated pieces of ceramic that were evidently used to strain cheese 7,400 years ago in what is now Poland. The holes suggested that the pottery was used for straining cheese, and chemical tests confirmed that they had signatures of milk fat. Cheese-making would have made milk into an item that could be stored and transported. Curdling and straining would also have removed the whey, which contained the lactose that many adult humans to this day cannot digest. Prehistoric Europeans were quickly spreading the gene enabling them to do so at about the same time. (Science News, 1/26/13) Food Safety The Centers for Disease Control recently released a comprehensive report on food safety. They estimate that one in six Americans suffers from food poisoning each year, resulting in 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths. Surprisingly, leafy green vegetables were implicated in the illnesses a fifth of the time, but poultry was the most likely to cause death. If you’re worried about getting food poisoning, you’re probably safer at home, since norovirus, for example, comes more from handlers than growers. And remember, food poisoning is nowhere close to being a leading cause of the 2 million or so annual U.S. deaths, many of which are hastened by a diet lacking fruits and vegetables. (Yahoo!, 1/29/13) Health Takes Guts One of the most fascinating fields of health research today is in your gut. The bacteria and other microflora inhabiting your intestines have a surprising range of effects, from immune system function to weight control. That shouldn’t be surprising, since they outnumber your own cells ten to one. The latest news is that they may determine whether starving children get the protein-starvation disease kwashiorkor. Identical twins generally do not both get kawshiorkor, even when both their genes and living conditions are the same. (NPR.org, 1/30/13)

Neither your will nor your worth is measured in pounds.

The Produce Beet

The Climate Change and Our food Supply by Ed Tyanich, Produce Manager
It’s easy to take our food supply for granted. We’re used to abundance and choice in all the seasons, bananas year round, berries in winter and fresh crisp greens whenever we want them. The realities are actually much different. The availability, selection and affordability of fresh produce during the winter season in northern states such as Montana are nothing short of amazing. It takes a lot of precision to take crops grown in Arizona, California, Florida, Mexico and South America, transport them to Montana over winter roads, and still get them here fresh and delicious. Most of the time this process runs smooth, but occasionally Mother Nature throws a major glitch in the supply and delivery of fresh foods. The past several weeks have seen some major shortages and drastic price increases. Hardest hit have been the row crop vegetables such as broccoli, celery, kale and arugula. The cause has been mainly the very cold temperatures in California and Arizona where most of these products are grown this time of year. When crops don’t grow or are frost-damaged it greatly affects the supply, which in turn causes the prices to soar. Just three weeks ago we were selling broccoli for $1.29/lb, and this week it’s at $4.79/lb. The short supplies and high prices aren’t limited to organics, as conventional produce is suffering from the same conditions. It does appear that we’ve passed the worst of the crisis and that supplies should be increasing in the next few weeks, bringing prices back down. A bright spot in all the gloom has been the availability and excellent prices on several products such as mangoes and blueberries. Our food supply hinges on weather patterns, and in many instances over the past several years that supply has been severely affected. From the current vegetable shortage, to the corn crop of this past summer that was at a 39-year low, the ability to feed the world is at risk. U.S. farmers experienced the worst drought in 56 years this past growing season, and the average temperature in the United States was the highest on record, a full degree warmer than the previous high. In light of all the evidence, I don’t see how we can ignore the realities of global climate change. One of the best ways to help the battle with climate change is to eat organic food. Organic farming sequesters carbon dioxide, a major cause of global warming, in the soil. Organic crops also tend to be more drought-resistant and require less water than conventional agriculture. Shop at Real Food, your local source for the best in organic foods.

Q. are there herbs for low libido?

by Dr. Liz Cavin, ND

I’m glad someone asked this question. The topic of sex drive and sexual performance can be embarrassing for people, yet it’s important to remember that heartfelt active intimacy is a vital part of maintaining healthy relationships. Low libido and compromised sexual function can be related to physical or psycho-emotional imbalances, with the physical symptoms often arising from an imbalance in our circulatory system or hormonal system or both. To put it simply, wanting sex depends on hormones and having sex depends on circulation, although the full story is much more complicated. Fortunately nature has provided us with several medicinal plants to help address these issues. One of these plants is maca root. It grows in the Andean Mountains of Peru and is most often used in a powdered

form. It can be taken by men and women as an aphrodisiac and to help improve sexual function. Interestingly maca is also considered a “superfood” because it contains several minerals, is high in protein and fiber and has been used to boost athletic endurance. Muira puama is another medicinal plant with a long history of use by indigenous people of the Amazon. It has been used as an energy and nervous system tonic, to tackle PMS and menstrual complaints and to help address impotence and sexual insufficiency. You may recognize the herb damiana because it is a key ingredient in a Mexican liquor that is drunk for its aphrodisiac effect. Studies using this medicinal plant have shown evidence of increased sexual activity in rats of both sexes. Tribulus, our next herb, can help address infertility because of its influence on sex hormone levels. It also may increase blood flow to the reproductive organs. Tribulus has also been used in Europe, India and China to help decrease blood pressure and lower cholesterol.

Finally, there’s epimedium. The Chinese have traditionally used it as an aphrodisiac. It’s also been used improve circulation, reduce fatigue and enhance sexual desire. A word of caution: To the extent that these herbs work by increasing blood flow, they may be a problem for individuals with high blood pressure. Since they can also influence the levels of testosterone and estrogen, you should seek the advice of a qualified expert when considering their use, as well as in addressing broader or more specific issues with the wide range of medicinal plants and supplements that are available.
