A Taste of Rosé!

By Saratoga Beer and Wine Manager  •  Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

MBR

In the U.S. we often associate pink wine with sweetness, thanks in part to the ubiquity of White Zinfandel in the American market, but in Europe (and particularly in France) rosés are more often prized for their dryness. This week we will taste five rosés that beautifully represent winemaking in Southern France and one from the Loire Valley. Although some are more fruit-forward than others, none are sweet. Some flavors and aromas you might detect in these wines are strawberry, raspberry, citrus, mint, violet, lavender, rose, stone, and a flavor very particular to the South: garrigue. The term refers to the low-growing vegetation in the area that includes rosemary, lavender, and other herbs. Imagine herbes-de-Provence in liquid form.
The most common grapes that are used to make rosés are also the most common to make reds in the Rhone Valley: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. In the case of rosé winemaking, however, the clear juice and the skins are only in contact for a fraction of the time, resulting in wines that range from pale pink to salmon in color. In the lighter form Mourvèdre lends freshness and flavor; Syrah adds fruitiness; Grenache is smooth and fruit-forward; Cinsault brings floral aromas and perfume to the wine; and one can detect citrus and salt from Rolle. All of the complex flavors that typify red wines are present in these ross, but they are much lighter and more versatile when it comes to food pairing. In France, rosés outsell white wine. Why not join us for this week’s tasting and see for yourself how delicious and refreshing they are?
Here is a brief description of the wines that we’ll taste this week:

Probiotics in the Wellness Department

By wellness associate  •  Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

As an associate in the Wellness Department at Healthy Living Market & Café, I’m often asked about probiotics- what they are, what they do, and more- so I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about probiotics and the role that they can play in a vibrant and healthy lifestyle.
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria often referred to as flora and the roles they play inside of us just can’t be over-stated: probiotics have been proven to aid many body systems from the immune system to the digestive system and even our circulatory system.  They have been shown to aid in the production of vitamins such as folate, K2, b12 and biotin and are also helpful for those with food allergies; as I just mentioned, they benefit the digestive system and seem to ease a lot of the stress that our bellies undertake on a daily basic, which can alleviate allergic symptoms.
 Probiotics Section
Our bodies naturally contain up to four pounds of bacteria, including both good and bad varieties.  These microorganisms are an innate part of us and are constantly competing with each other for space and resources in our bodies.  To help aid the beneficial bacteria, we can of course eat a healthy diet of fresh foods but we can also go a step further and take a high quality probiotic supplement daily!
IMG_3659
Probiotic supplements are created through many pathways of natural fermentation and essentially what they do is introduce beneficial flora into our bodies when we might otherwise not have an adequate amount.  Why could our bodies be lacking a stable internal flora system?  For the most part, dietary choices and medications like antibiotics, which both take a toll on our beneficial bacteria.
IMG_3656
The benefits carried by probiotics are vast, but how exactly do you know you’re getting a quality product that will actually work?  We at Healthy Living feel it is our duty to bring to you only the highest quality dietary supplements and we take the utmost care when deciding which probiotics to carry.  Some of the things we look for in the probiotics that we stock are labels confirming cultures are living or “active” and a delayed release or resistance to stomach acid.  Some of my personal recommendations are the Garden of Life probiotics as well as the Ultimate Flora probiotics.  These two companies have received immense positive feedback for their ethics and their quality of supplements.

Bio-dynamic Wine….what does it mean?

By Saratoga Beer and Wine Manager  •  Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Have you ever been shopping for wine and come across a label that says “bio-dynamic” on it and found yourself wondering what that means? Well I am here to tell you! The idea of biodynamic farming has been around for a long time and pre-dates organic farming by almost 20 years; it is the oldest anti-chemical agricultural movement. The idea of biodynamic farming was started in the 1920’s by a man named Rudolf Steiner. That name may sound familiar because he is also the same man who founded the Waldorf School. The concept of biodynamic farming is basically a holistic approach to agriculture. Everything in the universe is interconnected and gives off a resonance or a vibe and biodynamic viticulture is finding a balance of vibes between the vines, man, the earth, and the stars. The lunar cycles play a large part in establishing this balance, not unlike the Farmers Almanac. Biodynamics also has a calendar that helps guide winemakers in their practices. The Calendar is divided into four types of days corresponding with the lunar cycle: Fruit, Root, Flower, Leaf. These days all correspond with how to care for the vines; Root days are days for pruning or cutting the vines. Fruit days are for harvesting the grapes, Leaf days are for watering, and Flower days are for letting the vines be.

Biodynamic wines can be found from all over the world! Wine growers such as M. Chapoutier and Beaux Freres, believe that following this calendar allows for the most natural and authentic vineyard expression of the earth within the wine itself. Bonterra Vineyard uses biodynamic farming because they believe it enhances biodiversity and biological activity in the soil, while also complementing organic practices. Biodynamic soils have been tested and shown to have greater disease suppression than non-organic soil.

Not all organically grown grapes are biodynamic, but all biodynamically grown grapes are organic. Biodynamic wines can be Certified Organic, as long as they meet the standards and pay a very large fee. If a Biodynamic wine is not Certified Organic, the label will usually say “Made with Organic Grapes”. In order to be considered certified biodynamic, wines must be certified by Demeter or Biodyvin. Biodynamic wines are also not vegan friendly, due to the use of a special compost practice where compost mixture is stuffed into cow horns.

We carry a number of bio-dynamic wines here at Divine Wines including: Mas de Daumas Gassac, Bonterra, Montinore Borealis, M. Chapoutier, Beaux Freres, Frey, and Natural Selection. Some of the wines do contain sulfites, so be sure to ask one of our staff members to show the ones with out! If you are interested by the biodynamic concept, you can carry the practice into your life by drinking the wines on Flower and Fruit days! According to the lunar cycle your wine should taste the best on those days. Try it out and let us know!

-Lauren, Divine Wines

Healthy Living Taste Maker: Jason Fitzgerald

By Taste Maker  •  Monday, May 18th, 2015

Dee_PT

Dee Physical Therapy has a few major benefits to its location on San Remo Drive off of Dorset Street in South Burlington- one of the most important to me and other staff members; The fact that it’s walking distance from Healthy Living Market & Café. Our love of this particular store is due to the friendly and knowledgeable staff, the major support Healthy Living gives to our annual Diaper Drive, and the fact that we at Dee PT are in the business of health and healing.

The occupations of Physical Therapist, Exercise Physiologist, Physical Therapy Assistant, Aid, and the like, tend to bring together health minded and healthy eating peoples who are more than happy to peruse aisles of fresh fruit and natural products. Our predilections may be because in the process of rehabilitation and healing, nutrition is an integral part. I feel comfortable giving suggestions and recommendations to patients knowing that they will receive appropriate information from staff within each of Healthy Livings’ departments, from locally sourced produce and meats to Vitamins and supplements. I am confident that patients will be able to find offerings at Healthy Living that meet any dietary restrictions they may have, as well as enjoy a variety of wellness classes. I am equally confident that one of our receptionists is unaware there are sections to the store other than the ones that house chocolate and wine- and that’s fine too.

Healthy Livings’ products support us and our patient’s bodies, while the owners support my and Dee Physical Therapy’s biggest cause and fundraiser: The annual Dee PT Diaper Drive.

Every year, starting in November, we start to collect diapers in the Dee PT lobby to be donated to the Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS). I started the Dee PT Diaper Drive eight years ago and the owners of Healthy Living have been supporters from the start, not just by donating an incredible amount of diapers each year, but by allowing us to advertise in the store and connecting us to other local businesses. The largest donation to the Diaper Drive to date, over five thousand diapers, came from the relationship built between Healthy Living, Dee Physical Therapy, and Seventh Generation. One of the highlights of this collaboration has to be that point every year when Eli and his staff and I try to figure out how to effectively transport the aforementioned five thousand plus diapers the fifty or so yards from their store to the Dee PT office. My suggestions of constructing ¬¬a zip-line or a catapult are never met with much enthusiasm for some reason…

It is exciting for me to be asked to be a Tastemaker; It allows local business people and community members to be involved in the evolution of the store, making it ‘ours’ in a small way. I look forward to sharing with others what Healthy Living has to offer and to collaborating with them in the future in ways that will tie together what we do here at Dee Physical Therapy, with what they excel at those fifty short yards down the road.

So keep an eye out for me over at the café, because I am there for lunch pretty much every day. Everyone seems to know me and says hello and calls me by name; but that may be because I always forget to take off my name tag.

Ever Wonder About the Cheese We Sell?

By Katy Kent  •  Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

cheese_blogny

We go to great lengths to provide the best cheese selection and service around. While this is noteworthy in and of itself, what makes our Cheese Department so special is that we really put our hearts and minds into everything we do. To put it simply, we care! We care about the community in which we live, the farmers we support, the guests who shop here, and every single block, wedge, slice, sample, and package of cheese we prepare by hand.

To provide the absolute best selection, we’re always paying attention to what’s going on in the cheese world and we have fantastic connections with our amazing small, local cheesemakers. In addition to working with small, local distributors who ensure we’re carrying all of the best that this region has to offer, we actually get orders delivered from some of the cheesemakers themselves! (We’re particularly delighted when that happens.) Getting these top-of-the-line cheeses directly from the cheesemakers means we’re getting the best and freshest products available from people we trust. We can count on them to create gorgeous handmade cheeses using processes we know and understand, ingredients that are easily recognizable and natural, and then get them to us directly with no middle man and no long transit times!

Who are some of these amazing local producers? Here’s just a couple…

Argyle Cheese Farm is a 150-yr old dairy farm which uses only their own hormone-free milk to make delicious cheeses and award-winning yogurts. Located a mere 15 minutes from here (can you get any closer?!), you actually can’t find any of their cheeses anywhere else nearby and you certainly won’t be able to get them in any big chain grocery stores. They are truly a local legend and heads up: we will be the first to receive their aged cheeses as soon as they come out of their aging cellars again! To find out more about this amazing cheesemaker, check out their website at http://cheesefarmer.com.

Argyle_Cheese

Three Village Cheese Co. from Poland, NY (just 90 miles away!) is a family of artisan cheesemakers who source all of their milk from local farms. Only tiny stores (like us) and restaurants have the honor of carrying their vast array of cheeses inspired by the family’s Polish ancestry. We always look forward to getting their deliveries of flavored havartis, feta, farmer’s cheese, nokkelost, and more while also getting to check in with the cheesemakers themselves. Want to learn more about them? Take a look at their website http://www.threevillagecheese.com/ to see why we think they’re amazing!

three_village_cheese

So when you stop by our Cheese Department, you can trust that you’re in good hands because of the trust we have in our local cheesemakers. There’s nothing that can beat the quality and freshness of the local products we carry and having such close relationships with the cheesemakers themselves is a rare and very special thing indeed.

We go to great lengths to provide the best cheese selection and service around. While this is noteworthy in and of itself (and we can’t tell you the number of times we’ve heard, “You guys have the BEST cheese section in Vermont!”), what makes our Cheese Department so special is that we really put our hearts and minds into everything we do. To put it simply, we care! We care about the community in which we live, the farmers we support, the guests who shop here, and every single block, wedge, slice, sample, and package of cheese we prepare by hand.

We can count on them to create gorgeous handmade cheeses using processes we know and understand, ingredients that are easily recognizable and natural, and then get them to us directly with no middle man and no long transit times! A few cheesemakers have even let us into their homes and businesses during trips to their farms (aren’t we lucky?!) where we got to watch them in action and occasionally participate in the makes ourselves!

Who are some of these amazing local producers? Here’s just a few…

Orb Weaver Farm is a very small farm in New Haven, VT (a quick 30-mile trip from here) and it’s run by two incredibly inspirational and generous women. We are one of the lucky few markets that are able to buy their cheese direct, and in fact, are one of the few markets who even get to carry their lovely farmhouse cheese. We always look forward to seeing Marjorie & Marian with their cart full cheese wheels and smiles on their faces. This is one farm we’ve been fortunate enough to visit a couple times!

Shelburne Farms is the geographically-closest cheesemaker we carry in our Vermont store (they’re a mere 7.5 miles away!) and they do a wonderful job of educating and promoting practices for a sustainable future. Plus, they make great cheddar! We have sent our staff to visit this farm on a number of occasions, which also tells you that they’re open-minded and have limitless patience! Here is a blog post from when our staff went to the cheesemaking operation http://www.healthylivingmarket.com/cheese-making-at-shelburne-farms/ and for more info on the farm, check out their website: http://www.shelburnefarms.org/.

Does’ Leap Farm makes lovely organic farmstead goat cheeses in Bakersfield, VT (just 40 miles from here) and we just love what they create! Their chèvre is definitely a staff favorite (within and beyond the department) and we fully support their great organic practices. Seeing George every week when he delivers and getting to say a quick “hi!” is always a pleasure. Check out this blog post we wrote about how much we love this small cheesemaker http://www.healthylivingmarket.com/hl-loves-local-does-leap-farm/ and find out more info from their website http://www.doesleap.com/farm.htm.

does_leap_goats

Neighborly Farms is an organic family farmstead cheesemaker out of Randolph Center, VT (just 60 miles away!) and we enjoy their cheese so much that we actually invested in a co-branding project with their raw milk cheddar! The friendly folks at Neighborly farms (or should we say “the neighborly folks”?) are always so kind and pleasant to work with and they are endlessly accommodating, sending us only what we need exactly when we need it. What a fantastic partnership! We wrote about why we think they’re awesome in this blog post http://www.healthylivingmarket.com/hl-loves-local-neighborly-farms/ and you can check out their website http://neighborlyfarms.com/ for more info.

Neighborly_Farms

Thistle Hill Farm makes one marvelous kind of cheese called Tarentaise and John & Janine, cheesemakers extraordinaire, send us wheels directly whenever we need them. Tarentaise is a farmstead organic cheese made by hand on their farm in North Pomfret (only 80 miles away) using the certified organic milk from their happy, grass-fed Jersey cows. This small and dedicated cheesemaking operation is one with whom we’re proud to have such a great relationship. Read more about why we adore them in this blog post http://www.healthylivingmarket.com/healthy-living-loves-local-thistle-hill-farm/ and get more info on their farm here http://www.vtcheese.com/members/thistle-hill-farm/.

Healthy Living Conducting Ongoing Investigation into Potential Security Breach

By Nicole  •  Friday, May 8th, 2015

Dear Healthy Living Customer,

We recently learned that certain customers of Healthy Living experienced unauthorized charges to their credit cards in November and December of 2014. We were notified of this potential security breach on March 25, 2015 and immediately started an investigation into it.

We are taking this potential security breach very seriously and are working closely with federal law enforcement. We have engaged third-party data security experts to help us establish the facts.  Our investigation is ongoing and at this point, we do not believe that our IT systems were the source of a data security breach. We believe that any breach of our data security would have been limited to the unauthorized access of customer names and credit card numbers.

Because we have not yet been able to confirm that there was a data security breach, we have not yet determined what remedial steps will need to be taken, if any, to prevent future breaches. Nonetheless, we felt that it was important to notify you as soon as possible.

We care very deeply about your protection and cannot express how sorry we are for any inconvenience or concern this may cause you. We recommend that you closely monitor your account statements for unauthorized charges. If your credit card was affected, you should immediately contact your financial institution and to assist us in our investigation, we ask that you contact us as well. You may also want to review your credit report for any suspicious activity. By law, you may obtain one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus. To order your free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call 1-877-322-8228.

We will provide updates on our website (www.healthylivingmarket.com) as our investigation continues.  In the meantime, please contact me at 802-863-2569 x229 with any questions or concerns you may have.

 Sincerely,

 Eli Lesser-Goldsmith

Vice President, Healthy Living
