Hope you enjoy
We all want to love the life we live. Well what in today's video post I talk about how knowledge is power. The power to get you to where you want to be. Sometimes knowledge can seem like an obligation, but mostly once we know. At least we can call on those skills whenever we want. Knowledge is not "book-learnin" as my dad likes to call it. Knowledge is the understanding the ability to do something or to know something inside out and for oneself. Not sure if that's what Websters would say. All I'm trying to say is its more than reading a website, its experience and your hands knowing what to do at what time.
I hope you enjoy it

Balance is a fleeting thing...
I have always been told that balance is the key to living a happy life. Well I am here to tell you I DON'T GET IT! Balance for me is different than it is for you. It is fleeting, the fulcrum point changes, the definition changes. On top of that can you truly have all areas of your life in full complete balance? Lets just for a moment pretends it is all a bunch of cow crap and consider how we then go about living our best lives? I have heard it said before that sometimes we need to go out of balance to regain our balance and flow. That resonates with me.
Do Something Different
It has been a busy year for me, so many successes and plenty of stuff in the other category as well - we'll just call the "Learning experiences". Dinners with The Farmer's Daughter becoming more and more successful and sought after I never expected it but it fills my heart to no end to be able to provide this. As a result of this I'm coming out with a recipe book of all my best 5 course meals, you'll get a "cheat sheet" on all the fun facts and tips I talk about when I serve the food, the reason for why its prepared specific ways and why its so beneficial to buy certain things organic and even where to GET all of the ingredients! If you want to know about this - head over to the right side of this blog post and sign up for the newsletter - you will get notified of when its for sale. It will be for sale on Amazon for 2.99. But it will be free for the first 5 days! So Make sure you sign up so we can tell you!
Needless to say I LOVE what I do and I have a tendency to get very deep into it and forget that I still need to do many things like be social, take care of myself, tidy my office (yikes!), do my laundry, and oh ya... HAVE FUN!
I know many working professionals, moms, dads, and anyone who has to balance having a life, with eating healthy and also working to sustain themselves knows that this can be a challenge sometimes. If you find it hard to maintain balance or maybe think that one part of your life is out of balance well. It's hard to know what to do when you've been one way for so long, and it's equally hard to actually do it! Someone once said just do something, doesn't matter if its good or bad, just do SOMETHING different, that will spark the part of our brains that allow us to think outside the box. On the plus side we'll have more experiences to add to the "I like that" or "I definitely don't want that experience again" lists!
I hope the following story about JUST DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT inspires you!
Ask not what the world Can do for you, but what you can do for the world, because the world needs more people who are lit up and excited about life!
I had been posed the question recently and it went like this
WHAT ARE YOU LUSTY AND PASSIONATE FOR IN LIFE?
well I of course said well that's easy... I Love my work! As I started to consider it though, I realized maybe it has become just that- Work. (On a side note I'm not entirely convinced that doing what you love is without side effects - another story for another blog). So I thought I would sit with that question. What am I really lusty and passionate for in life (those words conjure up some pretty good imagery don't they?).
There are a few ways to change your life. Ok, so there are a LOT of ways. When you are in a patterned way of being, you know the one. You get up, you eat the same breakfast and you go to work, and you come home and Tuesday its hockey and Thursday it's dance etc. I am not suggesting that those are negative ways to live. In the interest of balance and maintaining ones spark in life Ive realized I need to shake it up now and again and really feel alive, ignite my adventurous spirit.
So... I'm going to round up cattle In California!!
Ive long been aware that doing the all inclusive thing (while super cost effective) is not my idea of a good time. I feel like a caged animal. All I can think about when I'm "swimming with the dolphins" (aka not really swimming, but doing choreographed exercises and feeling kinda bad because they do the same things day in and day out) is what else could I get these dolphins to do, how do they primarily communicate? Do they respond to dominance or are they gentler souls, how does their communication within their species work. I also feel fatter, less fit, marginally less smart, and oddly enough even more tired when I return! So I figured I have to get away from this dreadful cold, and I know the perspective and sense of aliveness I feel when I'm traveling, but I HATE tourist traps.
GOOGLE TO THE RESCUE!!!
So after a little google searching and some following of the internet bunny trails. I inadvertently came across Stemple Creek Ranch . So I sent them an email indicating that I too was a farmer and that I would do my best to be more help then hassle (as can sometimes happen with "free help". So I'll be heading down at a very exciting time to visit Loren and Lisa and their family. I'll get to brand cattle and herd some sheep. Learn about how they do things in the west. Most of all I'll get a change of pace. As Loren said when I spoke with him on the phone it doesn't feel like work when it's not your own.
Here are some pics of the ranch... can you see why Im a TEENCY bit excited!??!? Did I mention it is only a couple miles from the Pacific Ocean...
I pose the question to you - What are you Lusty and passionate for in life? I happen to love the land, soil, animals and hard work. I love the feeling in my body after a day of giving all I have with people who are there to do the same thing, of being part of something bigger. I love the feeling of sun on my skin as I work my butt off, put my muscles to the test. I love the feeling of a little scratch here and there or a bruise or two to remind me how much I really did give of myself that day and to grateful that I have the body and ability to give it.
I hope you leave a comment about what your truly passionate and lusty for, and I hope that one day you can find a way to experience it. We are not passionate and lusty for money or fame or fortune, we are all seeking the experience, and the juiciness of life. We just need to ask ourselves what specifically that is for us? For me its cows.
Some of you may already know that it takes a few people to make the little engine of Vibrant Farms work. It takes diligent farmers who are super committed to the land and constant self improvement of their operations. It also takes a very flexible and understanding trucker who comes when I call (I am super blessed!) He has a whole bunch of friends with trucks and trailers and between them all we make sure we pick up and deliver to the butcher. Of course it wouldn't be possible without the butcher which we have a very long standing relationship with and we are very happy with his humane practices as well as his commitment to organics. We actually take them almost 2 hours away because we are so committed to it.
Last but not least it takes a very committed and dedicated order coordinator. I used to do all of the business development and the sales and follow up - as many of you might have noticed it got to be too much for me, so in September of 2013 I took the plunge and hired Kathryn McEwin. She has been a blessing to Vibrant Farms family of producers, customers and of course to me! With her around you'll get responses faster and she can help you with what is best to order, she can tell you whats available, and when pick up times are open! She really is the glue that makes it all work. While some people might think that having it no longer be me may result in a lower level of commitment or service I assure you it is actually the opposite. I've been blown away by Kathryn's level of commitment and her ability to read my mind sometimes! She can see what is needed and does it! We (and you) are very blessed to have her. On top of all this she has inspired me in so many ways with her own family story and how she's incorporated so much local food coming from having very little to no local or organic food to serving a full organic
Kathryn comes from an executive administrative background. She doesn't miss a beat! She keeps me on track with all of the things that are necessary to keep Vibrant Farms and The Farmer's Daughter running like a well oiled machine and allow me to bring more great resources and food fun to you!
I just want to share a little bit about Kathryn's journey as I've seen it. I didn't know her much in the beginning but she was instrumental in starting a very well used community Facebook group for women of the Wellesley area. We started to get acquainted when she came for a dinner with The Farmer's daughter (one of the early ones!)
Kathryn started sharing with me some of the things she was incorporating, how her kids started to LOVE the beef and didn't want anything else (that makes me smile every time -its like their little bodies just know). She has been going to a Naturopath for quite some time and went to see my favourite homeopath Dr. Andrea Hauser. She came back after her live blood analysis all excited about what she saw and you could just SEE the empowerment in her eyes, through live blood she could actually SEE what was all happening in her body. Shortly after she took her kids to see Dr. Andrea Hauser and it was even more exciting. Her kids started to understand that if they ate certain foods or didn't eat certain foods then the little "floaty things" would go away! The moment when you see kids start to put the pieces together and understand how things affect their body is such a magical experience.
Over the holidays after one of our meetings Kathryn showed me her freezer - which she had just recently purchased and wasn't sure she would be able to fill it. Needless to say it was full and full of all kinds of local fruit, veggies, soup broth and of course organic grass fed meats! I was so inspired almost to the point of tears, not because I think I had anything to do with it. Just to see the excitement and joy in Kathryn's eyes as she explained where everything was from and how she prepared everything!
When Kathryn shared with me about how she prepared a TOTALLY organic and local meal (during Christmas- aka the winter) for her family and how she was so happy to share such great food with her family and feel GREAT about what's on the table for the kids. Even how the kids gobbled it up - and even asked "Are these the eggs from the chickens at Melissa's?". That is what makes me smile, THAT is why I do what I do. If I can have even an iota of that experience seeing families become full of joy over food, seeing them sit down to a lovingly prepared meal and chat about their day and their food, I will feel fulfilled and at peace.
Thank you Kathryn for continuing to inspire me and for continuing to support me in more ways than you know - I feel totally blessed to have someone like you in my life and my business.
It's Christmas time and it is time to indulge in the finer things in life and share those wonderful moments with family and friends!! So if you've purchased grass fed beef and want to share the awesome sustainable healthy beef with your family here are some things to keep in mind! It is a little different from regular beef so hopefully these tips will help you make amazing company worthy beef! And of course ideally they will all love it and want some for themselves!!! he he he
1) Thaw in Fridge – cook from Room Temp
Assuming you buy your beef frozen and in bulk you will want to get the beef out a few days before you want to use it, the best way to thaw it is in the fridge as it will slowly thaw as opposed to thawing at room temperature or worst of all in hot water. At the fridge temperature you won’t rupture the cell walls as much as if you were to thaw at room temperature or in hot water. When your meat is thawed, let it sit out for an hour or two and cook from room temperature. This process essentially brings the meat up to temperature slowly and does less damage to the cell walls. This will ensure better quality of your finished product when you and your guests are sitting down to munch down delicious grass fed organic beef
This is especially important for cuts like round steak, sirloin tip steak, flank steak, eye of round steak or any cuts from the hind quarter (excluding tenderloin, strip loin, or rib eye) Sirloin steak should still have enough marbling even if its grass fed but you can always tenderize it if you’d like (not to be confused with sirloin TIP steak which is a much tougher cut with a tighter grain in the meat). With corn fed or conventionally raised beef the fat that results from that creates spaces between the muscle fibers making for a much more tender cut of meat that allows marinades and the like to get into the fibers. With grass fed beef there is very little fat in the meat so tenderizing will create space between the fibers allowing marinades and spices to penetrate into the meat. Even if you don’t marinate however this will make a tougher cut of meat much nicer to eat. You can get a tenderizer that looks like this – see below, or for those who don’t see a need for yet another kitchen tool…. I use one end of a rolling pin (the roll part – not the handle!)
3) Marinate in spice and alcohol and fat
Due to the tight grain of some of the cuts of meat (especially the hind cuts) alcohol does a really good job of breaking down the tissue. Generally the meat you get should be aged at least 14 days, in the industry meat could be aged anywhere from 1 day to 10 days and in specialty stores and butcher shops up to 50 or 60 days. As the meat ages it will shrink, the aging process breaks down the tissue with naturally occurring enzymes (that are within the meat itself). By marinating in alcohol you will help this process. By adding fat into your marinate you’ll add some fat into these cuts (especially after you have tenderized) that wouldn’t normally be there, be sure to select your fats that are healthy a great source for lists of healthy fats is here. Salt or brining your meat will also help break down tissue. Salt will also bring out the flavor of the meat, if you bought grass fed organic you’ll likely want to show off the flavor of the meat so you can just use a simple salt brine, or you can add pepper and garlic, these simple spices nicely compliment a grass fed organic beef roast or steak and don’t over power it.
click here for a great list of fats
4) Cook slow and low
I often say that fat is the “margin for error”, I only mean that with meat that has lots of fat there is more room for over cooking because there is moisture in the meat still. With grass fed it is critical to not over cook. In fact if you like your steaks medium to rare you’ll have an easier time with grass fed and probably enjoy it more. With roasts it is beneficial to slowly cook – sometimes I’ll stick it in the oven the night before, on 150-200 with a little bit of water put a lid on it and poof, in the morning – wonderfully cooked easy to cut and pull apart beef.
5) Rest before eating
After cooking (especially with steaks) you’ll want to let it rest for a couple minutes before eating. This tip is not just for grass fed beef – you’ll see this for all kinds of beef, it helps the juices in the beef to work its way through, it finishes cooking in the last little bit while its sitting off the heat and on the cutting board before you cut it. It is actually amazing how much difference it makes when you let it rest before you eat it. Sometimes I’ll just leave it on the counter for a couple hours and it makes for awesome beef!!
6) Cut selection
This is crucial for when you are entertaining you’ll want something that want something that will feed lots of people, if you bought your meat in bulk you likely won’t have 20 tenderloin steaks, you could do several different kinds of steak but that would require lots of different prep techniques. I always suggest using either a roast or some stewing beef, if you marinate the roast or stew and then slow cook it in alcohol and fats you’ll come out with the most tender cut with your fork beef. If you are looking to make your beef go further, you can use either a roast or steak from the hind quarter that is a tougher cut and slice it thin for stir fry stack it up with lots of veggies and you’ll feed lots of hungry mouths.
7) Overcooking – learn to love it medium rare
This is a sin when it comes to grass fed beef. It will make it the texture of shoe leather! If you are ok with a little pink in the middle of your beef you’ll get the most out of your grass fed beef. You want to also be sure not to cook it too long over the heat. Often it will seem like it isn’t cooked when you take it off the grill or heat and after you let it rest it will be perfectly cooked.
Enjoy your grass fed beef; if you have any questions you can always submit a question to “Ask the Farmer’s Daughter” page – happy cooking and entertaining your family to the super healthy beef that you have purchased!
Seriously this is too cute not to check out!!
Between all the hard work, shoveling s*** and feeding hay, and lifting water buckets... etc special little moments like this happen and it kinda makes it all worth it!
Let me know what you think - Comment below! we need a CUTE revolution heheh - melts your heart doesn't it!
I am personally not a mother, however as I look around from the outside in as my friends and family all start having babies there seems to be a LOT of self doubt. I don't envy your job, I don't care how you slice it, stay at home, or working mom - its one of the most challenging and from what I hear fulfilling experiences one can ever experience. Diane Lauer is a Wellness Expert out the States, she wrote an article that got my attention about "How to Shop for Groceries when you hate it and Cooking for those that don't have time or hate it" It's a wonderful read. I highly recommend you check it out as well as her website www.simpleabundantwellness.com So I thought I would do a quick interview with Diane about some of her tips (as a mother and a Wellness Coach) for creating a healthier household and feeling GREAT about it. This is a short video, so it won't take much time but it's got some pretty awesome stuff in it!
P.s after you listen see below because I had an AWESOME conversation with her after and some stuff she said just made me love her EVEN more, and I know you will too!
Some additional tidbits from Diane Lauer
Diane suggests (also in the audio) going grocery shopping without your children, her kids don't watch much television but they tend to get drawn in by the targeted advertising in the stores, and she finds it less stressful to shop without them. Plus there is a little bit of "ignorance is bliss" what they don't know won't hurt them (in this case they don't know about all the sweet treats or the latest toys etc).
Diane has some really great suggestions for treating your kids as individuals, understanding their bio-individuality (a really great word!)It speaks to understanding that our bodies terrain is not going to be the same from one person to the next. Diane uses the Ayurvedic principles to better understand each child's body and what their needs are.
Diane talked to me a little bit about how she manages to keep her own confidence and self worth up while parenting in a world where there is so much choice and so many options its so easy to doubt. I asked her this because I see it all around, while our mothers did what their mothers did and nobody really questioned anything, now there is more research, more technology to share what people in various parts of the world are doing and its hard not to doubt whether what we're choosing is the best for us or the children. Diane is very honest with her children expressing what she needs, explaining she isn't perfect and accepting herself for that but also getting acceptance from her children. She isn't always going to give them what they ask, and they know that, she has created an understanding. Diane is not afraid to take the kids to the farm - which sometimes is not their idea of a "great afternoon" but she says they always leave happy, and in the end what they are craving is connection and that's what they get from being together as a family at the farm. Maybe they didn't go to the arcade (do they still have arcades? hahah I think Im dating myself), but they secretly ended up having a great time. And I would bet quite a bit that in several years from now, the times they will treasure will be the times they spent with their siblings at the farm, playing in the dirt! (That is something I can say from experience).
Diane was diagnosed with Crohns disease at age 14, and attempted to heal herself for 20 years through western medicine modalities. All the while she says she wanted to get off the meds and to get back to "living her life". In 2010 she had 3 kids and was very ill, she decided to do some things differently and become accountable (I really love that word heheh). She has since been able to heal herself through many other modalities and she can share them with you via a very individual phone coaching session, she does offer things from her clinic as well, but if you're not in the area a phone conversation might be best. I asked if she does group coaching sessions, but in general because she does things so specifically for you (back to the bio-individuality again) she is best able to serve through one on one coaching.
I hope you enjoyed the audio and could take some tips and tricks from it.
Remember to Love love and to love your food :D
MAKE SURE TO LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU DO FOR

Speech for March Against Monsanto
Hello, my name is Melissa I’m also The Farmer’s Daughter – make that The ORGANIC farmer’s daughter.
I wanna tell you a little story – once upon a time it was safe to eat the food in the grocery store! (ok maybe its not really a story). I say that because I know we are all here today working towards a world we want to live in and feel GOOD about living in.
I want to see a world that how decisions are made regarding OUR food be BACK in the power of those who are EATING the food.
I can not take credit for this, a friend of mine runs a website that is based out of the states (so some of it is a little irrelevant for the Canadian folks). I thought this article was quite nicely written and succinct. If you want to see the whole article make sure to visit Eat Local Grown
8) No More Canned Tomatoes - The acidity leaches the BPA from the lining of the can, so much so that it suppresses sperm count, and destroys reproductive eggs.
7) No More Corn Fed Beef - Corn fed beef (which is most beef at any food outlet) is lower in essential nutrients, the animals are not as healthy resulting in reduced health for you. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA
Well folks, as we grow more and more aware of health I can honestly say that I get about 2 emails per week looking for grass fed butter, with the growth of the paleo movement and sites such as the Civilized Caveman and Marks Daily Apple, Cave Girl Eats, Against All Grain and of course the soaring success of the Dr. Joseph Mercola site. On top of that The Weston A Price chapters and philosophy is gaining momentum, its no WONDER this wonderful healthy food is in greater and greater demand.
But WHERE does one find GRASS FED butter in Canada? Well friends I'm sorry to inform you, you CAN'T. (I would love to be wrong on this BTW, so if you know of anyone that is, please let me know I'll send an enormous amount of business their way). Well that's not totally true, you CAN find Grass Fed butter from places like Raw Milk Cow Shares and private membership situations like that, so if you are comfortable with raw milk and understand its benefits and are ok with the risks I highly recommend you support the small farmers that are doing this, one of those farmers talks openly about his struggle with the legal aspects of it here.
So WHY can't you find publicly available Grass Fed Butter (even Milk for that matter). Ensuring its Organic would be a whole other story.
Quite simply (and maybe a little bit cynically put), you can't find it because feeding cows on grass doesn't produce volume, it produces VALUE, but not volume.
In Canada we have a supply managed dairy industry, which as explained in previous posts is good for farmers that are apart of it. It also inhibits new entrants due to the 25,000 per cow upfront cost (that doesn't include buying the cow or the land or the equipment). This ensures that there are enough dairy farmers to feed demand but not too many to water down the price. In theory its good. However this supply managed system inherently values volume, you don't get paid on the amount of micro nutrients in your milk or the fat soluble vitamin counts, you get paid on litres and gallons. So like any other business farmers are looking at ways to maximize their investment to capitalize. If they can take 2 cows and create the same amount of milk as 3... and save the cost of buying that extra cow, feeding that extra cow, now all of a sudden the return on investment goes way up.
The way farmers do this is by feeding high energy feed such as fermented corn silage to their cows as well as genetically selecting for maximum milk production. We know corn in an animals diet mitigates any of the "grass fed" health benefits, and that a cow needs to be on purely grass for the best results. I do know that even pure grass fed farmers find it difficult to keep healthy weight on cows in our treacherous winters (I will say that the "grass fed" approach comes mostly from warmer climates with longer growing seasons, so we have to consider our own "terrior" when thinking about these things). So farmers in winter who are grass fed will likely feed some small grains to the cows (small grains are a different ball game all together than corn- that's for a different post). This is because they are being milked twice a day and keep producing milk, on only hay the cow will lose weight due to the amount of energy she is exerting.
So long story short due to the fact that all publicly available milk must be pasteurized and therefore within the Milk Marketing Board and the DFO's (Dairy Farmer's of Ontario) system, the farmers simply couldn't make money feeding only grass to their cows, the production goes way down and they wouldn't be able to feed their family and pay the bank.
Here is an image of an award winning dairy cow for her production, if you aren't instantly reminded of the image that I've posted right next to it... well I don't know what to say, but its the first thing that popped into my head.
I'm not sure what the woman on the left did to get her veiny muscular physique. But I'm sure that the woman on the left was produced from year and years of genetic selection, well I have seen how genetic selection plays out in various animals. In my chicken flock it is just simply sad to see that because of genetic selection for big meat birds their "chicken-ness" has totally left them, they NEED to be vaccinated according to the hatchery because they don't have the immune systems to handle it without. So taking this into consideration I have to be wary of cows that are so genetically selected for production, as they stop looking like cows and start to look like franken-cows... which excuse me for thinking, but that HAS to have some effect on their biological make up and subsequently their milk, but I'm JUST a Farmer's Daughter, who am I to say that.
So there you have it, a little on the lack of Grass Fed Butter in Canada. Even diary operations that are ORGANICALLY certified are also within the supply management system and are paid on production. They must feed organic corn however and also have their cows out on pasture for a specified number of hours per day, they are STILL not purely grass fed. You can find grass fed butter in the States though from Kerry Gold and even here they say that they can not import their products to Canada at this time (after they list a whole bunch of places you can find it... weird).
The best way to find Organic grass fed butter in Canada... own a cow.
Happy cow hunting
The Organic Farmer's Daughter
This is a pretty hot topic with a lot of network marketing companies promoting their lean shakes and flavoured protein products, whether it be vegetable, soy or whey.
I am working on a page called "Ask the Farmer's Daughter". Here you'll be able to ask me any questions you want about well, anything you want. I'll tell you right now I don't know how to grow Thyme or Money on trees... yet! (haha see what I did there).
Anyways I thought I would take a question from one of my best customers as I know its a popular question.
What do you think about Protein Powders (she mentioned a company but we'll keep that anonymous), I've heard from my alternative health care practitioner that they are good so I've just been going along with it, but recently Ive been following someone on twitter who investigates products and she says there are additives and its not really good for you?
so here is my very not a professional health practitioner, just a farm girl who used to play varsity sports and heavily use protein powder response:
1) I encourage you to form your own opinion for whats right for you, you will find as many practitioners as there are, there are that many different opinions on this subject and they will all have very fancy scientific evidence to prove it (I've always wanted to get them in one room and have them square off.. wouldn't that be interesting)
2) I had to ask myself the question how does whey protein turn into powder, I know from growing up on the farm and milking my one lovely cow, and making cheese from that milk that whey is VERY much a liquid, I even contemplated drying it in my dehydrator once (which I don't recommend trying at home). I know that these places have very fancy high tech equipment to take a liquid and make it a solid, but I just have to wonder whether that process somehow changes the integrity of the protein, whether it was organic, free range, grass fed whey or organic soya, or other vegetable proteins.
3) I can see a little bit more logically soya or vegetable - you'd just grind up the rice and peas right? Why then don't we just eat rice and peas. My understanding is it is a concentrated protein in a small amount, which sounds good, but does our body really need that isolated macronutrient or should that macronutrient exist in a form and quantity recognizable by the body, you know with all that extra stuff like vitamins and nutrients and fibre?
4) I don't know how places can produce that MUCH protein powder, on such a massive scale. I guess I'm jaded but I just don't see many things that are in the long term good that are produced on such a large scale.
5) we know that protein digested creates an acidic ash in the body, and if we are aiming for balanced PH for optimal health, why would we overload our body with concentrated amounts of something that creates acidity?
That being said I know I lived off them in university, they definitely are tempting on a busy schedule and wanting to get all your nutrients in all within budget.
I am not totally against taking supplements, I do think that we pay more for our food to get it from good sources so we can get most of our nutrients from our food - we don't expect grocery store food to cut it anymore, but is protein shakes and supplements the answer? I realize life happens and sometimes our bodies get out of balance, mine does all the time. But Ive decided for ME it doesn't work to be packing down the protein as a way of life.
What are your thoughts? are you a protein powder lover or hater or even undecided?
Leave a comment below - I think its important to hear other peoples experiences to be able to form our own opinions.
