Looking for a delicious alternative to refined sugar?

Consider using Organic Grade B Maple Syrup. Our maple syrup is sourced 100% from small family farms in southwestern Wisconsin. A variety of species of hardwood trees, including our maple trees, grow on the steep hillsides of the Ocooch Mountains that surround the beautiful Kickapoo River Valley. These natural forests in Wisconsin are a healthy mix of many species of trees, unlike huge commercial maple plantations that are often planted in former wheat fields. Great care is taken in harvesting the sap to make the Maple Syrup, ensuring that the health of the tree is not compromised and no pesticides or chemicals are ever used on the forests.

Research done in Wisconsin by a University of Wisconsin graduate student showed that Grade B maple syrup had a higher mineral content than Grade A. Currently, Tropical Traditions only sells Organic Grade B Maple Syrup and this syrup makes a great natural sweetener for all of your cooking and baking needs. Some people even enjoy it in coffee, tea, and other beverages!

Sunday Devotional: How to be Restored from Sickness

The way sickness was viewed in Biblical Old Testament times and the way sickness is viewed today in the 21st century is almost in completely opposite terms. In Old Testament times, sickness was primarily viewed as a judgment from God for sins. This view primarily stemmed from Israel’s experience in the Exodus from Egypt, when God inflicted plagues on the Egyptians.

In our modern day post-Darwin era, sickness is almost always viewed as strictly a result of natural causes, with no thought given to spiritual issues such as sin. Medicines and other cures are seen as the remedy for all sicknesses. If a cure does not exist in medicine, it is believed that one will be discovered in the future through scientific research.

Both of these views are extreme and imbalanced. Read how King David, the most righteous king that ruled Israel in Old Testament times but nevertheless suffered from sickness, dealt with his illness, and how he was healed and restored. The principles he teaches for restoration from sickness still work today!

Baking Gluten Free Cookies with Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is one of the trickiest, if not the trickiest, most finicky, temperamental, fickle gluten free flour to work with. However, when you get it right, coconut flour baked goods will be some of the best you’ve ever had, gluten free or otherwise.

One of the hardest baked goods to transfer over to gluten free with coconut flour would be cookies. How do you do it? It’s either not the right texture, too crumbly, too dense, requires too many eggs or simply bakes up into sawdust. Here are some proven tips to making successful coconut flour cookies based on three textures: crispy cookies, cakey cookies, chewy cookies. I include 10 kitchen-proven recipes to get you started.

FREE Shipping on Soy-Free Eggs with coupon code 26215!

Soy has become a big part of the human diet post World War II, and as a result, many people have developed soy allergies and are trying to reduce or eliminate soy protein from their diet. Soy is the cheapest protein available today and it is a major component of most animal feeds. Cheap soy protein allows chickens to grow fast and produce the maximum amount of eggs during their peak laying cycles.

If you believe you are allergic to eggs, it could be that you are in fact allergic to soy protein that researchers have now found to be present in egg yolks. Almost all commercial eggs, including those that are organic or marketed as "Omega 3" eggs, are from chickens fed high concentrations of soy. If eggs are a part of your diet today, so is soy protein, whether you realize it or not.

Tropical Traditions wanted to offer a 100% soy-free egg from chickens that eat NO SOY. Tropical Traditions chickens are also pastured, meaning they run around outdoors eating grass, bugs, and are allowed to be a chicken, just the way they were intended to be. We have developed our very own soy-free feed the chickens eat: Cocofeed.

Learn more about our eggs and take advantage of this FREE Shipping offer before it ends:
Tropical Traditions organic soy-free eggs are raised on family farms eating Cocofeed, a coconut-based feed that contains NO SOY! Tests have shown that our eggs contain no soy protein in the yolks.

Big Pharma Study: USDA Dietary Guidelines on Fats are Wrong

A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine made waves through the mainstream media. In a stunning meta-analysis of the relationship between dietary fats and heart disease that included over 600,000 people, the researchers came to the following conclusion: "Current evidence does not clearly support cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats."

This conclusion flies in direct contrast to the USDA dietary guidelines, which recommends polyunsaturated fats (think corn and soybean oils) as healthy, and saturated fats as unhealthy (think dairy, animal fat, and coconut oil) in terms of cardiovascular health.

Bone Broth—THE Staple of a Gut Healing Diet

Eating a high-quality, nutrient-dense diet is one of the most powerful ways to maintain health and prevent disease. Your gut in particular needs proper nourishment in order to allow your health to really flourish.

The Gut and Psychology Syndrome principles (GAPS diet) developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride is often used to treat children with autism and other disorders rooted in gut dysfunction, but just about anyone with allergies or less than optimal gut health can benefit from it, as it is designed to heal leaky gut.

New Dietary Guidelines Reverse Flawed Recommendations on Cholesterol

Limitations for cholesterol will likely be removed from the 2015 edition of Dietary Guidelines for Americans; over consumption of dietary cholesterol is now cited as being of no concern.

A recent review of studies investigating the link between dietary fat and causes of death concluded that recommendations to reduce the amount of fat we eat every day should never have been made. When fat was removed from processed foods, sugar was added in. This has led to a massive increase in obesity, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, even among children.

What’s Behind the Government’s Hatred of Raw Milk?

Government bans on the sale and distribution of raw milk and raw milk products are enforced in the name of public safety. But many people enjoy the health benefits of milk that has not been pasteurized, and some farms want sell it. Are the health threats from raw milk significant enough to warrant a ban on its sale?

Government data and the lack of regulation of other raw foods suggest that they are not.

Have you ever tried bison? It makes a delicious alternative for beef and can be used in any recipe that calls for beef.

This week, we have two great sales on our 100% Grass-Fed and Finished Bison:

*35% OFF Rump Roast!

*30% OFF Tenderloin Steaks!

Our source for bison products comes from northern Wisconsin where the animals are grazed on prairie grass with NO chemicals, hormones, or grains - EVER! The animals are 100% grass fed, and are also “finished” on grass. Extra measures are taken to keep the animals in a very low stress, natural environment, which insures a more tender and sweeter tasting meat.

Grass-fed animals have been shown to be higher in Omega 3 fatty acids than grain-fed and finished livestock. CLA is also an essential fatty acid found primarily in grass-fed animals. Some studies have also shown that grass-fed bison contain up to four times more selenium than grain-fed bison.
