New Product: mtn Seasons Bagels!

By Jackie Cooper  •  Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

We are thrilled to be bringing your these amazing Vermont style bagels by mtn Seasons! Check out who’s who and how they got started by reading below. Healthy Living will be getting deliveries of the bagels on Mondays and Fridays!

A chef who loves the seasonality of ingredients, and a farmer who loves to explore what she grows, are creating a wood fired bagelrie and café in Jeffersonville, VT.

Diane used to sell her organic Beet Box Farm produce at Farmers’ Markets and wonder why the prepared food vendors put out the same food every week, and rarely purchased from their neighbor veggie growers. Diane would peddle her goods to Jeff while he worked at a local restaurant. Jeff would troll her Beet Box Farm stand to learn about the varietal differences of the produce in front of him.

Diane began working on at Pleasant Valley Farm, a four season, small scale, diversified farm, while at Skidmore College in upstate New York. That job taught her how to work hard, in every weather condition, for absurdly long hours and low pay. As a liberal arts student who hailed from the Suburbs of New York City, the reasons why she started the job probably had more to do with proving something to herself than any affinity toward agriculture. Make no mistake, the job had its perks. For the first time, Diane began to explore the tastes of seasonal produce, anticipating the arrival of new fruits and vegetables, pasture raised pork, sungold egg yolks, and free range chickens. Really, she began to explore flavors, and how the changing flavors bring people together in their excitement and fervor to share!

Jeff, as a chef throughout New York and Vermont, would wonder why his menu always stayed the same when there were new availabilities of meats, cheeses and produce as the season progressed. He’d ponder “if I’m so excited each week by food that is new, and has been on hiatus for so long, doesn’t that mean restaurant patrons would be too?” Every week from the Spring through the Fall bring new wonders, which inspire new recipes. Poached French Breakfast radishes in the Spring; Brandywine tomatoes with a sprinkle of salt in the Summer; Rosted Brussel Sprouts after the first frost.

 By creating a relationship with his local farmers, Jeff learned about heirloom varieties of not only tomatoes, but beans, eggplant, cucumbers and lettuce. Imagine, food that is selected for its flavor and not for its shelf life, packing ability, or production numbers! Why not create a restaurant with a simple, seasonal menu to reflect the splendors right here in our own county?

Diane, the farmer, always wondered why the flavors that persuaded her to continue her work on vegetable farms were rarely found at casual eateries. Farmers tend to eat what is abundant. When we have a bumper crop of cucumbers, we are eating every cucumber salad or stir fry there is. When our crop of eggplant have imperfections, we are making every dip, roast and sautee we can dream up. Casual eateries seem like the most likely partner with farmers. They can bring a rotating menu of seasonal, organic, local delights to their patrons at low costs as long as the farmers and restaurateurs are working together!

mtnseasons

 Our menu will change daily. Instead of paper menus, we will list our specials on chalkboards. We will bake bagels, make heady breakfast sandwiches, and pizzas every day; however we will have a constant rotation of artisanal cheeses, in house sauces and pestos, fire roasted vegetables and local meats.

 And what about our bagels? A girl from New Jersey and a boy from New York grew up knowing that bagels are the staple breakfast baked good for millions of people. And not just any bagel that you can find at a grocery store or chain coffee house, but a chewy, glossy, air pocketed bagel that would make Manhattan proud. But this isn’t just a Manhattan style bagel transplanted up to Vermont. Up in Vermont, we also love Montreal style bagels. These are denser, thinner, sweeter and woodfired to a crispy perfection. Our perfect bagel is a cross between the two. And so we bring you… a Vermont style bagel and a Vermont style business.

Mood Management for the Holidays

By Saratoga Wellness Manager  •  Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Around this time of year, people are all about eating well and rejoicing with family.   And as we all know, sometimes it can be stressful…whether you are in the grocery store with the kids or participating in a well, let us just say an “intense misunderstanding” with family members, it’s always a good idea to have a back-up mood enhancer : )  So today, I present to you one of the best ways to keep your mood in check and uplifted throughout the entire holiday season:

doTERRA Essential Oils at Healthy Living Market

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) Essential oils by doTERRA.

First, where do essential oils come from? 

Essential oils have been around for thousands of years.  Their healing properties have been widely documented and shared throughout many civilizations in history.  Now, doTERRA presents a line of essential oils that are carefully steam distilled from different parts of different plants; so depending on which oil you choose you may be getting the stems, leaves, bark, roots, seeds, buds, or flowers.  Different parts of the same plant can contain different chemical make-up…when plant matter is steamed the essential oils are carefully extracted, and once the steam cools, it turns back into water-and since oil and water don’t mix, the essential oil floats on top and are easily obtained.

How do they work?

Since both plants and humans are living organisms, we share many of life’s fundamental characteristics…this means that when an essential oil enters our bodies (aromatically, topically or internally), they are in a familiar environment and know what needs to be done to help our bodies…and visa versa…our bodies recognize that the oils are there to help.

We can think of essential oil as the “life blood” or “soul” of the plant-it keeps the plant healthy and protects it from various diseases, bacterias, viruses, as well as envirnomental toxins and pollutants.  All actions an essential oil can do for the plant it can also do for us : ) We can use an esential oil for just about any ailment out there…so when you think of doTERRA Essential Oils, think  “Smart Medicine.”

When to use doTERRA Essential Oils:

~ Times of distress~During meditation or spiritual practice~To increase energy levels~To calm addictive or destructive behaviors~To induce sleep~To maintain well-being~While studying~During the Holidays : )

Taking the oils into the body aromatically is a classic and effective way to feel their benefits.  It’s a great way to manage mood, as well as opening the airways of the nasal passages and targeting the olfactory (emotional center) part of the brain.  For annoying skin issues like rashes, dry skin, dandruff, moles, scars, wrinkles, applying the oils topically works really well too…you can apply doTERRA oils directly and work into skin or you can use a carrier oil (i.e., sweet almond, jojoba, coconut, apricot, grapeseed, olive, etc.) if you have sensitive skin.  Finally, doTERRA puts foward that most of their oils are safe to take internally. This means that adding a drop of lemon or peppermint oil to an  8oz. glass of water, juice, smoothie or even your toothpaste can go a long way and have health benefits : ) The options are almost endless! NOTE:  first recognize which oils are safe to ingest as a dietary supplement because not all plants are meant to be ingested.

doTERRA Essential Oils at Healthy Living

Exciting news for Healthy Living Market Guests!

We are currently expanding our line of essential oils and have also brought in On Guard Softgels and Beadlets for helping the immune system during cold and flu seasons. What does this mean for you?  It means that an all-natural way of keeping you and your family healthy and protected during the holidays is now available…

doTERRA Essential Oil Kits

In addition to numerous singles and blends we have brought on board, we now offer doTERRA Essential Oil Kits and Diffusers.

If you are looking for the perfect gift for the holidays, you may want to consider a doTERRA Essential Oil Kit as one of your best picks.  To get started with a basic kit, we recommend the Introductory Kit (containing Lavender, Peppermint and Lemon oils).  The Family Physician Kit (containing Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Melaleuca (tea tree), Oregano, Deep Blue, Breathe, Digestzen, On Guard, and doTERRA’s exclusive Omani Frankincense) is ideal to have in your medicine cabinet all year long.  And the AromaTouch Technique Kit, ideal for massage therapy and relaxation, containins Balance, Lavender, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Wild Orange, AromaTouch, Deep Blue, and On Guard, as well as an AromaTouch overview booklet and presentation box.

On Guard Essential Oil at Healthy Living MarketFinally, let us not forget the On Guard Line…The On Guard Softgels have made a splash in our Immune Section.  It also contains the Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf/Flower which makes it a perfect antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral blend for the holiday season.  The On Guard Line also includes a Natural Whitening Toothpaste, Beadlets and Foaming Handwash which pairs nicely with diffusing On Guard Essential Oil in any bathroom.

Think of doTERRA Essential Oils for mood management : )

These 100% pure plant extracts are gaining popularity because they are safe and effective for all ages; they work quickly, and contain zero fillers, pesticides, chemicals or artificial ingredients.  One of my favorites, lemon oil, is effective for reducing stress and fatigue, may enhance concentration, and is naturally antibacterial, relieves congestion, and can also be used as a digestive aid.  Wild Orange soothes anxiety, eases depression, and may boost energy. Peppermint boosts energy, clears the mind, and has an invigorating scent.

Be prepared for the holidays with one of the best mood managers you can find, CPTG Essential Oils by doTERRA : )

On the journey for wellness,

David

Aromatherapy

By Wellness Manager  •  Monday, November 17th, 2014

Late Fall is a busy time. The holidays are quickly approaching and we enjoy the nostalgic smells of crisp leaves, fir trees, pumpkin pie, and the soothing scent of hot soups and tea. These smells not only evoke nostalgia; they’re also powerful aromatherapy agents. Aromatherapy can be used as a tool to lift mood, relieve anxiety, and help heal the mind, body, and soul.

What exactly are essential oils and aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a term that describes the use of essential oils from plants for healing.This liquid, typically obtained by distillation, comes from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots of a plant, . An essential oil embodies the essence of the plant it is derived from and is usually either absorbed through the skin or inhaled. Aromatherapy can help relieve anxiety, stress, insomnia, headaches, general body aches, circulation issues, and much more.

Essential oils are used in a variety of ways: they may be diffused, sprayed as a mist on the body and room, applied topically as massage oil, lotion, or perfume. These powerful oils can even be used in household cleaning solutions. Diffusers (made by Aura Cacia) are a great way to get the benefits of aromatherapy. Aura Cacia makes diffusers for rooms and for cars.

Some of my favorite essential oils and their benefits are:

oils

Aura Cacia Lavender, $12.29/.5 fl oz – Lavender is my go-to for relaxation after or during a long day. Lavender relaxes the mind while easing tension and frustration. It is said to relieve headache and migraine symptoms as well as symptoms of insomnia. I enjoy putting a few drops on my wrists or pillow as I’m falling asleep.

Aura Cacia Balsam Fir Needle, $12.29/.5 fl oz – Balsam Fir Needle essential oil not only evokes images of holiday festivities, but it opens breathing passages and lifts the spirit. I choose to use Balsam Fir Needle oil in my room or car diffuser.

Aura Cacia Rose Absolute, $13.58/.5 fl oz – Emotionally, Rose Oil is helpful during times of stress. It is considered the choice oil for use during times of grief. Rose is known to help with symptoms of depression, eczema, frigidity, mature skin, menopause, and stress. Rose is divine when combined with the calming scent of sandalwood.

Aura Cacia Chill Pill, $12.99/.5 fl oz – This blend of Sweet Orange, Lavender, Patchouli, Peppermint, Sweet Basil, and Roman Chamomile oil. Orange, peppermint and basil can help calm the mind and reduce worry, while lavender, patchouli and chamomile cool heated or stressed emotions.

Vitality Works Peppermint, $8.99/1 fl oz – Peppermint can improve focus and mental sharpness Peppermint may help taste and smell when inhaled. Peppermint is a soothing after-Thanksgiving-dinner-scent.

Flourish Lemongrass Body Mist, $12.99/.25 fl oz – This refreshing spray is wonderful after a yoga class or a run. It purifies and focuses the mind as well as increases circulation. This refreshing scent is also wonderful to spray on towels or linens.

Defend Yourself with Theaves!

By Jackie Cooper  •  Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Theaves1
Need a natural and strong support for your immune system this winter? Try Theaves! Vert Mont Perfumery’s Theaves oil is made up of six essential oils. Each of the essential oils used in our formulation can naturally help maintain your health.

theaves3

1. Atlas Cedar is grounding and calming. It can help relieve stress and it is very good for the respiratory system.

2. Clove Bud oil possesses immunity enhancing properties and it is also a powerful antioxidant.

3. Cinnamon Bark oil naturally helps support the immune system and it can help support the cardiovascular system. It also has a very warming scent that is pleasant and relaxing.

4. Eucalyptus oil is extremely soothing for muscle discomfort and can help support the respiratory system.

5. Rosemary is an uplifting and stimulating oil, while supporting mental alertness and may even improve focus.

6. Lemon oil is a powerful antioxidant and it may help support the circulatory system. Lemon oil is known to be emotionally and physically up lifting.

A little history behind the Four Robbers recipe:

“Thieves” oil originated around the 15th century when the bubonic plaque (or the Black Plague) had become widespread in Europe and Asia. Legend has it that four notorious thieves used this blend to protect themselves from the plague while robbing the dead. The thieves used this powerful blend of essential oils to protect themselves from the disease. The blend that they used was highly effective.

Theaves

Ver Mont Perfumery’s blend Theaves (rhymes with leaves and we love to spell phonetically!) is a proprietary blend that has antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic properties. We also choose to add Atlas Cedar to the original blend for its antibacterial qualities and its wonderful scent. All of these essential oils are physically and emotionally healing, and have immunity boosting properties. This amazing blend will help support your body’s natural defenses for the months ahead.

Thanksgiving Wine Tote

By Saratoga Beer and Wine Manager  •  Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Thanksgiving 6pack wines

Stressing out about what to pair for Thanksgiving that will go with all of your wacky dishes as well as all of your wacky family member’s picky tastes? Let Divine Wines take the frustration out of pairing wine with your holiday meals with our fabulous Thanksgiving 6-wine tote! Our amazing staff has put together a comprehensive hand-selection selection of wines that will go with whatever fare you will be serving during Thanksgiving this year. Six wines come in a complementary tote with a selection of pairing advice geared towards Thanksgiving fare for only $75 (regular price $100+)!

Curious about each one of the wines being featured and wondering why we picked them? Read on for more detailed information:

Zonin (Prosecco) – Sparkling Italian Wine

Suggestions: use as an aperitif, for welcoming friends/family into your home, light appetizers, while cooking, as a palate cleanser throughout the meal

Food: finger foods, creamy/nutty cheese and cheese plates, Maple Nut Crusted Goat Cheese Log (from our Cafe!)

The creamy bubbles and soft fruity flavor makes Prosecco an ideal aperitif to stimulate your appetite for the Thanksgiving feast ahead! Sparkling wines can also be consumed throughout the entirety of the meal as a refreshing palate cleanser in between bites.

Pine Ridge (Chenin Blanc/Viognier) – Light White

Food: Herb Crusted Goat Cheese Log (from our Cafe!), Crunchy Cucumber-Cilantro Salad, Green Bean Casserole, Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

This off- dry white offers a stunning aromatic display of honeydew melons, spring flowers, pears and cantaloupe. It is a wine with crisp, zesty acids, medium body and abundant purity as well as freshness; a delightful complement to the holiday meal that has been geared towards lighter fare!

Four Vines Naked (Unoaked Chardonnay) – Medium White

Food: Creamed Onions, Mashed Potatoes, Spaghetti Squash (from our Cafe!), Fruit Aspic

This beautifully styled Chardonnay has a lovely bouquet of custard with a creamy richness on the palate. With no apparant oak, this wine is bright, tangy and crisp with nectarine and lemon notes that expand on the finish. This wine has an elegant medium-bodied personality that can stand up to the likes of holiday potatoes and other denser fair.

Angeline California (Pinot Noir) – Light Red

Food: Traditional Stuffing, Turkey Breast, Butternut Squash Puree (from our Cafe!), Sweet Potato Biscuits, Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta, Creamed Corn Cornbread

Bright fruit aromas, ripe berry flavors and velvety textures make this great value Pinot Noir a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving spread. It’s complex enough in flavor to not be overwhelmed by the food, but subdued enough to let your culinary creations shine through!

Shebang (Zinfandel Blend) – Medium Red

Food: Cranberry Sauce/Relish, Roasted Acorn Squash, Roasted Yams, Bacon Wrapped Dates

An innovative, old vine cuvee Zinfandel blend that will satisfy even the most demanding wine enthusiast! Spicy and full bodied, this versatile wine will drink well with both earthy and fruity fare! Think: turkey, butternut squash, sweet potato, cranberry sauce….yum!

Meiomi (Pinot Noir) – Medium/Bold Red

Food: Savory Sausage Stuffing, Traditional Turkey and Gravy, Grilled Vegetables, Wild Mushroom Rice Pilaf, Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes Gratin

This Pinot Noir is an instant crowd pleaser for those that insist on a bigger wine with their holiday meals! Intensely aromatic and packed with earthy-fruit and a long, pleasant finish, Meiomi is bold enough to stand up to the perhaps less traditional Thanksgiving fare that have more pronounced flavors.

______________________

Though we do recommend enjoying these wines in the order suggested above, you can open each one throughout the meal as you desire. These 6 wines will fit the needs of 10-12 moderate drinkers with a few glasses of wine each. With so many selections and variety in one bag, you’re also guaranteed to please everyone at the table! Looking for the perfect hostess gift to bring with you? Our Thanksgiving Wine Totes make the perfect hostess gift for the holidays!

As always, we are available in store to answer any additional wine and food pairing questions that you might have. Stop by Divine Wines and make your holiday feast a little easier this year with our hand-selected Thanksgiving-Wine Tote!
