Vegan Lavender Latte

Tuesday, October 09, 2018

As the first autumn 2018 snow on Pikes Peak started to fall, with temperatures predicted to dip below freezing tonight, a cozy vegan lavender almond milk latte captured the Monday afternoon attention of Biosyntrx employees. We chose lavender, since the research office gardens still have both dried and blooming lavender that will be done for the season when the first snow falls in town, if the dried and new autumn blooms are not cut and moved inside.

Autumn Chili Verde

Tuesday, October 02, 2018

We are lucky here in Colorado Springs because just before the snow starts to fall on Pikes Peak, most of our garden stores celebrate the incoming autumn season by roasting large amounts of both red and green chilies as a customer appreciation gesture. They make them available in quart or gallon Ziploc bags for immediate or freezer use.

Food Waste

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Given that we are battling a very real food waste problem in our country today, we decided to discuss this issue instead of providing a nutrient-dense recipe.A United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-funded study revealed earlier this year that American consumers waste almost one pound of food per day, accounting for 225 to 290 pounds per person per year, or almost a third of all food produced.

Quinoa Chicken Casserole

It includes Greek yogurt, ?cheese, and a mix of fresh ingredients ?such as bell peppers and onions, and canned pantry staples such as black beans and fire-roasted tomatoes, to create a healthy dinner ?that's reasonably easy to prepare for busy families, single folks, or for empty-nesters who love leftovers, since it is almost as good on day two and three as it is on day one.

Early Autumn Green Smoothie Detox

Tuesday, September 04, 2018

Drinking this cucumber / celery / spinach green smoothie twice a day for a few days is a great way to detox after Labor Day, which seems to signal, (along with fresh snow on the summit of Pikes Peak that another year end is coming and we need to be ready.

John McCain's Ribs

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Nothing makes me happier than grilling for family and friends. I have lots of energy, it keeps me moving.  ~John McCainWith the Labor Day holiday coming up, it seems fitting for our Tasty Tuesday recipe to feature Senator John McCain's recipe for grilled ribs. It's reported that since he could not move his arms above his shoulders, he often said that he considered grilling his sport and made it a habit to entertain friends and elected officials from both sides of the aisle at his Arizona ranch as often as possible.
