Sage Essential Oil

       The Chinese believed that Sage cured sterility, while the Romans believed it cured just about everything. The name is derived from the Latin word 'salvare' which means 'heal' or 'save' and during the Middle Ages it was a popular ingredient of many nerve tonics and the herb was also used to clean gums. Sage oil has a sharp, herbal smell, and is watery in viscosity.
      Today, sage essential oil is extracted from the dried leaves by steam distillation. Sage oil may stimulate poor appetite, is useful for menstrual problems, and may ease the pain associated with rheumatism. It helps to deal with grief and depression and quickens the senses. On the muscular system it can be used to ease stiff muscles and particularly fibrositis and torticollis (stiff neck).
     Sage oil blends particularly well with bergamot, lavender, lemon and rosemary. Sage is a powerful oil and should be used with care. It should not be used during pregnancy, or by persons suffering from epilepsy or high blood pressure.  Click more for a few recipes!

The Basics: Gluten-Free Living Seminar

Food for Thought is pleased to present The Basics Seminar Series! The first seminar will cover Gluten-Free Living. Celiac disease is the most under-diagnosed disease in the United States- it is estimated that it affects 1 in every 133 Americans. In addition, it is estimated that 1 in every 7 people has a gluten sensitivity! It can be overwhelming to learn all of the ins and outs of leading a healthy and fulfilling gluten-free lifestyle. To assist individuals on their journey, topics include: What is gluten? Who leads a gluten-free lifestyle? What can you eat on a gluten-free diet? What about gluten-free supplements and skincare? Food samples will be set up around the store and gift bags are available for the first 50 customers.  Chipotle will be providing gluten free catering!
The Basics: Gluten-Free Living Seminar will be held Thursday, June 17, 2010, from 7:00 - 8:30 pm! Seating is limited and an RSVP is required. Call the store at 316/683-6078 or come in to reserve your seat today!

Manic Monday Recipe: Bean & Cheese Casserole

The weekend is over and it's back to reality! Each Monday we will post an easy recipe, either for the crockpot, quick fix or five ingredient or less recipe. Here's to eating healthy, simply!

Bean & Cheese Casserole
5-6 small potatoes, sliced
1 tbsp mustard
1-15oz can Field Day Baked Beans 1 tsp black pepper
2 cups vegan cheese (we like Follow Your Heart's)
1.  Preheat oven to 400. 
2.  In a large pot of water, boil the sliced potatoes until they can be pierced easily with a fork. 
3.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the mustard, beans and pepper.  Set aside.
4.  Drain the potatoes and place half of them in a lightly oiled casserole dish.  Layer half of the bean mixture on top, then half of "cheese."  Repeat.  Cover and bake for 35-40 minutes.
