newsletter march

our newsletter for march has gone out about a week ago.
this month we talked about
-flavours and ingredients to incoporate in Autumm. it is a season when people become dry and may experience lung issues.
-list of the reasons to include 'gynostemma" in your tea selection. anti-oxidant, weight control and many studies have shown to help with many disorders and diseases. Also it tastes mild, a little like green tea so it is really easy to have the tea regularly.
-the water at our cafe is filtered, removing most of fluoride, that is in our tap water. here is why
-recipes include raw blackberry jam that is perfect for your dessert, breakfast and snacks. and raw almond chocolate. so good.

if you have missed out on this issue. make sure to register for the next newsletter, which will be out in a couple of weeks.

april dinner menu

We had such wonderful responses from dinner in March.  If you have come more than once to join us at dinner you may have noticed a slight changes every time you come. I can't seem to keep the dishes exactly the same…. just keep wanting to add something or change slightly.

I am excited to post a new menu for april.  We still have some summer vegetables and fruits to play with but definitely moving towards the change in season. hope to see you at the cafe soon xxx
