The Four Varieties of True Tea

   The Four Varieties of True Tea By Melissa Wynn    For thousands of years people have enjoyed sipping a nice hot cup of tea. Traditional White, Green, Oolong and Black teas are all made by steeping the leaves in boiling water of the Camellia sinensis plant, an evergreen shrub native to Asia. The difference between each tea is the degree to which each leaf is allowed to grow and oxidize or ferment.    White tea is the most delicate and least processed of the four teas. New, tiny leaves are carefully harvested by hand at an early phase of...

By Natalie Peterson CMT, 200RYT, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Lifestyle Doula Vitality Yoga – Red Bluff    The word yoga means union, unite, or to yoke.

Winter-Wellness Wisdom

By Nicole Staniger, CPM, LM      In general, we eat hot food year-round.  How we imbue heat into food, however, changes with the seasons.  Open-flame or grilling in the Summer comes with a culture of communal gathering and deliciously charred nostalgia.  As Autumn creeps in with its chill and frost (and need for quick prep!), the efficiency of crockpots and casseroles come onto the stage.
