Ah! My first blog.
I can't help but letting loose the passion for originally starting this business. All extra virgin olive oil dressings. What a concept. Something I've been eating all my life. Nothing new, nothing questioned, roots, history, the only way, nothing else. As I dug or was presented with the way things are now with unhealthy oils, cooked to uselessness oils wreaking havoc on our health and lives and the earth, I was enraged. Who would listen, who cares. Who does? Over the last 17 years, I felt lost in the maze of ignorance and deception that big business, chemical companies, greedy corporations and individuals trampling needlessly over the health of all of us, the earth, our animals, water, food. How could we let them do this? How could we let them drive us into the depths of food hell, shattering our lives and direction?
I've not tried to change things, only through the producing of my family's healthy intentions. Healthy food. Is this a bad thing? Whole Foods was the first to listen. They said why do we need another salad dressing on our shelf. What can you offer (12 years ago) that we don't have here, organic? What? I showed them that out of all their picks from all the dressings out there (they filter out the unhealthy, mostly, unhealthy dressings nicely with their requirements of not allowing 70 different chemicals in the items they choose for their shelves). I noted they had nothing like our dressings. ALL EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL DRESSINGS. What a concept? How unique? Something I never knew differently. They looked at me and said. "OK. We don't have that. Bring it on." From that moment, more intelligent and health-conscious and understanding, family's, people, groups, have taken our small, handcrafted offerings and made them a healthy, part of their lives. We still have no others that tread on our ground. Too expensive. People don't know the difference. Who cares.
We do. We want you to know that oils like canola, soy, corn and a few others, are cooked and toxic hexane extracted from their seeds. I don't care if they are organic, cold-pressed, they are still genetically modified, cooked so they are useless and damaging to everything they touch….and…the mush that that is left from the toxic extraction is fed to the animals we eat. What ???? What a concept?
Resist, understand, don't buy anything that first:
Have these oils inside, these 3. soy, corn, canola, they are not healthy oils.
Don't buy any dressings in a plastic container. The plastic leaches into the dressing.
Don't buy dressings that have any of the Whole Foods 75 items "don't put this in anything you sell to us". They still allow canola, but that's not right. I love Whole Foods, but they use too much canola oil in everything. Not good.
Visit our site regularly, we will show you these toxic additives and chemicals.
We will also tell you what dressings have them inside, but, you can READ THE LABEL and see for yourself.
This blog will list the toxic additives that are in 90% of dressings and the dressings that you should avoid at all costs. Better not to use any dressings. Taste the veggies.
