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…..

Happy Monday, Mainahs!

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

MINT To Be! A Lemon, Cucumber, Mint Water Detox!

Mint is refreshing. It is minty. It smells pretty.  But did you know that mint can help settle an upset belly and aide in digestion?

Lemons are great for making lemonade and for adding a citrus note to a beautiful piece of fish or a little squeeze in your cocktail.  Did you know lemons are great for boosting your immune system and even for helping to curb your appetite?

What about cukes? CUKES ARE MAGICAL! There is so much information out there about cucumbers and their health benefits, but here are a few of the reasons I make them a part of my diet! They have anti inflammatory properties and they are great for re hydrating!  That is why you put them over your eyes to reduce puffiness and rehydrate!  Cucumbers also have a very high water and fiber content which is a great addition to any diet and especially to those who are trying to get beach body ready!  That water will help flush the fat and the fiber helps you to feel satisfied! WIN WIN! They also a great source of silica, which is known to help promote joint health. It’s always a good idea to take care of your joints!

And then we have water. Water is one of the most important things we can put in to our bodies.  Water keeps us alive. We have all heard that our bodies are made up of around 70% water. Have you ever thought about what that means and what that translates into for your muscles and organs?  If you have ever forgotten to water a plant, you know what they look like.  Imagine that happening inside your body. Drinking enough water isn’t just the “in thing”, it is necessary for LIFE!!! It is necessary for healthy cell production, healthy muscle tone, detoxifying your body, and for helping you feel your very best! Have you ever noticed that the people who drink a lot of water seem to always be happy? Just an observation I have made in my years as a water drinker. 🙂

 

So what happens when we combine all of these things together and leave over night in the fridge?  Well, I’m glad you asked!  After spending the night getting to know each other, they become a kick ass detoxifying monster that not only tastes AMAZING, but helps to flush your body of daily toxins and help curb your hunger pangs. It will also hydrate you while helping you shed some extra pounds! There really is no reason not to drink this water!

What You Will Need:

12 cups filtered or distilled water

1 medium organic cucumber

2-3 organic lemons

10-12 organic mint leaves

Combine all ingredients and let sit over night and then drink throughout the day.  Do this daily and watch what happens.  It makes you feel amazing!

 

Enjoy this health tonic! Love yourself and do something great for you!

You deserve it!
