GUT MICROBIOME

This week's deliveries were all made with crafted intention of both flavor and nutrition. One of the items we try to address that don't seem to grab enough attention is the importance of a healthy gut microbiome. The gut is the foundation of all health in which food, emotions, stress, and laughter all play a major role. You can eat all the kale you want, but without having healthy gut, all those nutrients will not be absorbed.

You will notice that in our meals, we try to incorporate fermented foods that are loaded with healthy bacteria, called probiotics. Natural sources are the best so we find it very crucial to implement fermented foods into our meals.

We have a close working relationship with Happy Pantry's owner/chef, Mark who provides us with fermented ingredients including brine and special fermented items for us to use. We also make our own kimchi and fermented chili pastes. We hope you notice the little things and extra efforts we put in our meals to make it the most healthy and happy for you!

The Road to ZERO WASTE!

One of the biggest problems in the food industry is that over 40 million tons of food is wasted every year which equates to about $218 billion dollars per year! Billions!!! I've witnessed myself from large restaurants, grocery stores, farms, to small mom and pop eateries.

Although we don't throw much away at Enclave, we are always striving for innovative and creative solutions to use sustainable practices and work towards being a zero-waste company! With the scraps that we do have leftover, we are experimenting with making dog food! All our ingredients are local and organic making it some of the healthiest options out there! They even have probiotics and bone broth which have proven to be really good for the gut and joints! Please email me if you want to try and we'll send to you for free!*

Another form of food waste is using parts of items that we would normally throw away. Thanks to Tommy the Fishmonger of Catalina Offshore, he showed me one of the tastiest parts of Opah (moonfish), the abductor, which is normally thrown away. It's a muscle that's also called the "tri-tip", and when grounded it can taste more like meat. Here we seared it and made delicious tacos with all the superfood fixings!

GET OFF THE DUCKING PHONE!

It's dinner time,
But why aren't we eating?
Is plating food for the Gram
much more appealing?

Shot after shot, 
as my stomach groans
I wish you’d get off the ducking phone!

Going for a hike,
smelling the flowers and trees
Sun is shining,
with a soft gentle breeze

Taking in nature,
but your index fingers scrolling
Writing hateful comments,
Relentlessly trolling

Buckle up!
It's time to go for a ride
We are going on a road trip
through the countryside

Beep! Beep! 
Notification sends a ringtone
Hey! Watch the road!
And get off the ducking phone!

Life is so beautiful! 
Life is so fleeting!
Why do you waste it
Facebooking and tweeting?

Arguing politics
Making such a clatter
Without any action, 
your opinions - they don't matter

Around the corner
At our local dive
It’s our favorite rock band
And they’re playing live!

Getting elbowed not by moshpit, 
but arms recording
Taking video selfies
Creating fake story

What are you trying to prove?
Is your life really that boring?
The people you try to impress
Can see right through your luring

There are consequences
In playing games of innocence
No need for Instagram models
But more model citizens

It's a different world now
Easy access for every voice, gripe and moan
Silence can be more golden than words
So just get off the ducking phone!

Nighty night, turn the lights off
It's time for bed
Including the bluelight
Shining on your forehead

Melatonin draining,
Life dreams remain stuck
When you can't sleep
Is not the same as being WOKE AS DUCK!
