Alright, time to get serious! I can’t tell you how happy I am to be your produce lady. These past couple weeks all of you came together to help a cause very near to my heart. BECAUSE OF YOU, together, we were

able to donate $348 to our buddy, Beckett, and help put his family over the $5k mark in their efforts to raise money for his new legs. Partly because of us, Beckett, will have a better life. You know how much that ROCKS!!

Our little network of produce junkies have helped so many people while eating organic together. We are on an amazing journey together and I can’t wait to see all of the people near and far we can help together. My heart 

swells to think of what we can accomplish together. If any one of you knows of a cause or a family that needs help please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. My email is jillian@cascobayorganics.com. I will get right back

to you. My door is always open. Thank you all so much! With that being said…..

Had a little surgery on Friday so I’m going to keep this quick!

We have Red Leaf from The Broadturn Farm! We have Golden Frills Mustard Greens from Stonecipher! Cantaloupe, Zuchinni, Peaches, and Broccoli!

Recipe Of The Week: Mustard Green Gratin

If you haven’t donated this week please consider!!!This week’s donation will be going to a friend of mine. Her baby boy, Beckett, has a disease called Blount’s Disease.

Blount’s is a growth disease that affects the bones of the lower leg causing extreme bowing. 

There is a surgical procedure that can help this but the cost is astronomical. The co-pay alone is $7.000. I say we do what we can to help get little Beckett new legs! I will match all donations and post the money to

their Go Fund Me Page and all the credit goes to you guys! Please leave Cash/Check for your drivers made out to Casco Bay Organics or feel free to donate directly to their Go Fund Me Page. It is just easier to keep

track of the donation for matching if it all goes at once. Thank you guys so much! You have no idea how grateful I am to share a network with all of you. I really believe we make a difference

The Center for Balanced Living Holistic Health Symposium and Trade Show

This past Saturday, Casco Bay Organics was invited to attend the 1st Annual The Center for Balanced Living Holistic Health Symposium and Trade Show at The Center for Balanced Living at 74 Lunt Road in Falmouth. They packed their auditorium with everything from holistic healers to motivational brain coaching, to organic produce delivered, to reflexology gods, and rocks and crystals and stones OH MY!  The idea was to bring a strong group of like minded individuals together and introduce themselves and their passion to the community.

I had the sincere please of being seated next to Susan Kent, a Reiki practitioner and hypnotherapy extraordinaire.  What a delightful spirit and genuinely kind human being.  Susan was scheduled to give a group talk about hypnotherapy and I thought, hey why not. I have never been hypnotized! Let’s see how this goes.  I had no idea what was about to happen. People often think about hypnosis as being made in to someone’s puppet perhaps, but with hypnotherapy, it’s bit different. This is all about relaxation and being present in the space you create in your mind.  By the end of the session, which took about 20 minutes, the entire energy in the room had been calmed and everyone was extremely relaxed.  It felt almost like falling asleep, but being present, if you can wrap your brain around that! That energy stayed with me throughout the rest of the day. I felt, rejuvenated, awake, present, and HAPPY!

 

I met some cool cats from Anchor Wellness in Falmouth as well.  Matthew Baker, LMT teaches at SpaTech Institute and has practiced massage therapy since 2007.  Matthew also does reflexology. He offered me a session, so of course I said YES! I have plantar fasciitis and I knew reflexology was something involving your feet and massage. I was having a particularly good day on Saturday with minimal pain and by the end of the session, I was pretty much pain free and it has lasted me until today! I am thrilled! To have continued relief from day to day is not something I get on a regular basis and I am so excited for my appointment on Friday!  I cannot wait for more long lasting relief.

Take care of your feet. They carry you around!

It was a pleasure to meet so many people that share the same goal in life and in business. To be around people who truly care about your well being is inspiring and motivating. What you need to know, you YES YOU, need to take care of yourself.  Your body is your temple and you only get one shot. A wise person once said that once you lose your health, you will spend a lifetime trying to get it back.  Words to live by.

Be kind to you. Be kind to your loved ones.  Be kind to all creatures, great and small. Live, laugh, love, and breathe and most importantly, do not forget to smile.  You are amazing!
