There are so many things I celebrate being free from. I am free from mainland traffic. I am free from ill-health. I am free from negative relationships. I am free to choose healthy life-enhancing foods. I am free from oppression. I am free to choose hope instead of fear. I am free to celebrate life, as I do each and every day. I hope you found some freedom to rejoice in yesterday and that you do the same today, tomorrow and onward. Rock your independence! And, while we are at it, let’s celebrate the abundance that our gardens are providing! 


It seems if we sat by the garden for a while we could actually watch the lettuce grow. These long summer days are perfect for a light supper of salad. If you are looking for ways to make your salads more of a meal, try putting fresh lightly seared tuna on it. Or some cooked garbanzo beans. Hard boiled eggs also make a great protein addition to a green salad. And, my favorite salad dressing—

Tahini Dressing.

 1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. tahini
1/2 c. water
3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 c. tamari
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 garlic clove, squeezed
Black pepper
