I love Lotus Wei! Katie Hess's Lotus Wei products have transformed my life. We all experience hurts, bumps, and bruises in life, and Lotus Wei transforms these dark experiences and emotions quickly and effortlessly, replacing them with love, gentleness, warmth, beauty, and hope. I am calmer, gentler, softer, and patient; more nourishing, more accepting, more aware, and more loving--with myself and with others. I have used Bach Remedies in the past, and while they are wonderful, I have found Lotus Wei to be the best healer for me, personally, on a deep and profound level. I enjoy going for my morning walks; I find myself smiling when I get an eyeful of the flowers Lotus Wei uses in their products right there in nature! In a society hyper-focused on results and producitivity, I had lost touch with my the ability to "stop and smell the flowers." I am more in touch with my femininity now and with my truth. So much gratitude to Katie and Lotus Wei!

“Organic Mike” wants everyone in my area to have amazing, local, organic food. I was filling my minivan at the gas station this past June when a truck that said “Mike’s Organic Delivery” drove past. They had me at “Delivery!” I called as soon as I got home. Every week Mike comes to my door with two full crates of absolutely fresh and amazing fruits and vegetables, pastured organic eggs, and organic and pastured meats from local, organic, farms. Sometimes he also brings local honey or cheese. And each time Mike delivers our food he sends me an email with recipes for all of the delicious ingredients he’s brought us! I don’t have to worry about shopping anymore; I just pick up bread, milk and all of my staples at Whole Foods. No lists. No menus. Amazing! My kids love it when “Organic Mike” comes by. They help unload all the food treasures onto our kitchen island and listen to him describe everything and how to store it. They eat Asian Pears. They eat Escarole. Need I say more? If I tell them that something came from Organic Mike then it’s OK with them! mikesorganicdelivery.com

These days, where the news is full of scary food health details, it is all about trust. I trust "local" products for safety, quality and variety--one less thing to worry about.

I love Farmer Gene Mealhow Non-GMO popcorn! I use a hot air popcorn popper & almost all kernels pop. I think it's because they are so dense. They sure are tiny but mighty.

I like our local CSA, Eli's Farms in Temecula, CA. They are inexpensive, the produce is high quality, and they do not force you into a long-term commitment.

As I love blackberries, I really love Block Island Blackberry Soda . . . also the blackberry/lime combo. Eyes closed -- 2 sips ... I'm right back in the blackberry patch!

Carmela ice cream. Best ice-cream, ever, and that's not even counting the fact that it's made local from local ingredients!

I am a college student in WV and move back home in the summer to Michigan and I love going to the local farmer's markets. It makes me feel good to support local farmers because they really do put their heart and soul into their products. Everything is much more colorful, abundant, and taken care of with love.

I bought honey at the farmer's market since it is better for your health if it's local. It's delicious and I eat it every day either alone or on wheat toast, banana or oatmeal. Yummy! Have to get more soon.

I love Jo the Jam Lady's jam which I purchase at our local farmers' market. She has some all fruit varieties and some sweetened with Stevia.

Tiny But Mighty popcorn is wonderful. Not only is it very tasty and has no hulls, but it is an earth friendly product. Not only do I buy non-GMO products, but, whenever possible, I buy products to support small family farms, which are disappearing too fast. Hats off to the Mealhow family for caring enough to 1) preserve and produce an heirloom popcorn and 2) to bring it to the rest of us to enjoy!

I love farm ferments from Charlottesville. They produce great Kim Chi and sauerkraut that are delicious and full of good bacteria!

I am a big fan of sweet potatoes and bok choy. The only local farmer I know that sells them is Sam Elliot and Family located in Grapeland, Texas. They sell their produce to local markets and I always make sure to support them. Their sweet potatoes are so yummy!
