Our nutritional yeast is available in bulk and package free! Nutritional yeast is the deactivated version of baker's yeast. For vegans, vegetarians and people with dairy intolerance or other health issues, nutritional yeast is a safe and tasty substitute for cheese in many recipes.
It contains no animal or dairy products, no starch, wheat, corn or soy, has low salt and no artificial colours or flavours. It’s also very low in saturated fat. As well as B vitamins, nutritional yeast contains magnesium, copper and manganese and is a good source of dietary fibre.
Add it to sauces (perfect in pesto) sprinkle it on pasta, pizza or on veggies before roasting them and enjoy it sprinkled on a fresh summer salad. 📸 @appleby09
Himalayan pink salt is one of my top choice salts to use in my cooking. Table salt is cheap, yes,but heavily processed, resulting in salt with very little minerals, and that often has additives. While salt is always to be consumed with moderation (though you'll find that of you cook mostly from scratch and avoid processed foods, lowering your salt intake is not so much of an issue), I find that using a good quality salt really makes a difference in my cooking, both for flavour and health.
When it comes to purchasing the ingredients we put into our food, we don’t compromise on quality. We’ve always paid a premium price for the best organic ingredients we can find because, not only does it taste better, it’s better for your body! 🥕🍅🥦 #LiveYourHealth#LiveYourValues
Here’s a bit of statistics – humanity is losing 0.3% of our global food production each year to soil erosion and degradation and 30% every 100 years.
David Montgomery, Professor of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington @uofwa in Seattle and the author of Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life, says that soil degradation and loss has been a problem since the beginning of agriculture and played a major role in the demise of past civilisations including Mesopotamia, classical Greece and ancient Rome.
According to him, the evil is plow – its invention fundamentally disturbed the balance between soil production and soil erosion where the latter is 20 times faster than soil building.
If no-till method is used together with cover crops and diverse crop rotations, it creates conservation agriculture which stimulates soil microbial activity to build fertile soils – hence, the profits and yields are higher, less fossil fuel, fertilizer and pesticide use for the farmer, increased soil carbon and water retention.
No wonder why ecological growers use those practices – it’s a no brainer that soil health is the single most important contributor to farm productivity.

Not only are microplastics filling our ocean, they are being digested by all kinds of animals. Including us 👫
They enter our food chain as they’re consumed by fish. Resulting in us also digesting microplastics, which contain toxic and carcinogenic chemicals 🦠
Microplastics are the tiny fragments of plastic which have degraded, from larger plastic produce. They will never biodegrade, and will always be on earth with us. Think about that next time you buy single use plastic or don’t recycle properly ♻️

Meet Gregory @greglorenzutti from Melbourne, Australia 🇦🇺 “I’m passionate about organic home grown produce and the healing power of gardening and farming. It is a family thing. My grandparents are farmers and as a kid I used to help them load the truck with the plants and vegetables they used to sell at the farmer’s market. Somehow I carried on that connection to the land and growing food and that resonates today in what I’ve been doing in my backyard.
I don’t know any other activity that rewards you more. It is the way I found to reconnect myself to the land, to the soil, the beauty of watching a seed turning into an edible thing. It is a miracle that fills my heart with hope for the future.
The plot is around 1/4th of an acre. And it is a rental one. I grow basically 80% of my fresh food in my backyard. For the last 4 years I’ve been eating more and more in sync with the seasons. Your body and health feels so much better when you work with nature and natural rhythms.
I use chop and drop a lot. The soil has been improving so fast. And moisture retention is fantastic. I mulch my garden beds with a heavy layer of leaf litter and on top I lay a generous layer of compost and manure. That is it. And the results are astonishing!
My pest management system is purely done by the beneficial insects that live in here. I discovered that fennel flowers are a fantastic attractor to them so I have a whole bunch of fennel blooming in every corner. And it looks amazing too!
Farming and gardening teach me a lot everyday. You got to have patience, resilience and be able to nurture a sharing spirit. And it also helps you to make so many wonderful friends and meet inspiring people along the way. A good friendship can start with a bag of vegetable swap. There is always a bag of something in my bike or car ready for a new home.
Grow something. When we all start to grow some kind of food we might change the way we see the food chain system, commodification of food, food democracy and start changing the way we consume. We can make a big impact on the industry and the planet will be thankful for our small local action.”
