This is spicy comfort food: enchiladas stuffed with beans and veggies, along with cashews and lightly mashed avocado – entirely scrumptious!  Pair with a salad dressed with “Cumin-Cinnamon Vinaigrette” (also from ed&bv).

9 -10 corn tortillas (6 inches each)
1/2 – 1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp mild chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp sea salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 – 2 1/2 cups white button mushrooms, sliced
1 can (14 oz) pinto beans, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 c raw cashew pieces
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted (about 1 – 1 1/2 cups)
1 1/4 tsp sea salt
1 jar (14.5 oz) prepared enchilada sauce (about 1 3/4 cups)
3/4-1 cup prepared chili sauce
3/4-1 cup vegan cheese, grated (ex: Daiya; optional)
1/2 c fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 400.  Place tortillas in a 8×12 inch baking dish, cover tightly with aluminium foil, and place in oven to soften for 5-10 minutes while preparing filling.  In a frying pan on medium heat, add oil, onions, chili powder, cumin, allspice, salt, and pepper and saute for 2-3 minutes.  Increase heat to medium-high, add mushrooms, beans, and cashews and saute for 5-6 minutes, tossing once to twice.  Immediately toss in lime juice and remove from heat to slightly cool.  In a large bowl, mash avocado and salt – this can be chunky.  Add veggie saute and lightly mix to incorporate.  In a separate bowl, mix enchilada and chili sauces.  Remove tortillas from oven, transfer to a plate, and cover with a tea towel to keep warm.  In the same baking dish, pour half of sauce evenly over bottom.  Place 1/4-1/3 cup avocado-veggie mixture in center of each tortilla.  Roll tortillas up, tucking in sides as you go, and place seam side down in baking dish.  Pour remaining sauce over top, and cover with aluminium foil.  Bake for 16-18 minutes, then uncover and bake for another 4-5 minutes, until bubbling around edges.  If adding cheese, sprinkle on after casserole has baked for 15 minutes, then baking uncovered for another 6-7 minutes to melt cheese.  Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.  Serves 4.

Notes:
1) If you can’t find a mild chili sauce, use more regular enchilada sauce (using some from a second jar).
2) If corn tortillas dry out, re-soften by returning to oven in covered dish (or by coating with some enchilada sauce).

Tower Garden® is a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system. It’s perfect for rooftops, patios, balconies, terraces—just about any relatively sunny place outside.
How Tower Garden® works

Tower Garden is a state-of-the-art, aeroponic vertical garden that gives you more control of your health by making it easy to grow vegetables and fruits at home.
3 basic steps to simpler gardening:

1. Setup

Tower Garden Growing System comes with everything you need to start growing, including a seed starter kit and specially formulated plant food. It takes most people about 20-25 minutes to assemble, following the step-by-step instructions included with the product.
2. Grow

You’ll start seedlings using the seed kit provided with your purchase; and when they are ready (approximately 1-3 weeks later, depending on the plant), you’ll transport them into your Tower Garden. Note: if you don’t have time to start your own plants or prefer not to, it’s possible to use seedlings purchased from a local garden center.

Once your seedlings are in Tower Garden, they will be nourished with the Tower Tonic® nutrient solution to grow. Learn more about the Tower Garden’s aeroponic growing process.

From checking water and pH levels to cleaning the pump filter, there are a few basic tasks you’ll need to complete occasionally to maintain your Tower Garden. Read details on Tower Garden maintenance »
3. Harvest

Thanks to its proprietary aeroponic growing system and Tower Tonic, your Tower Garden will grow the produce of your choice in less time than it takes to grow in soil.* You’ll harvest your fresh vegetables and fruits on a regular basis by cutting the produce off when it is ready.

Using aeroponics and our specially formulated Tower Tonic plant food, it grows almost any vegetable, herb, or flower—and many fruits—in less time than it takes in soil.*

Tower Garden gives you more control of your and your family’s health by making it easy to grow nutritious, great-tasting vegetables and fruits at home. And it’s a smart choice, both environmentally and economically.

Aeroponics: the modern, clean, efficient way to better gardening
Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil. It uses both water and air to produce more colorful, better tasting, better smelling, and incredibly nutritious fruits and vegetables.
How does aeroponics compare to hydroponics

Aeroponics is a technological leap forward from traditional hydroponics. Aeroponics is sometimes considered a type of hydroponics, as it does use water to transmit nutrients to plants and thus requires no soil. Technically, however, true hydroponics uses water as the growing medium; aeroponics has no growing medium.
How the Tower Garden aeroponic growing system works

Tower Garden has a 20 gallon reservoir or storage tank at its base. This reservoir stores the Tower Tonic® nutrient solution (Tower Tonic® combined with water). Inside the reservoir is a small, low wattage submersible pump. The pump pushes the nutrient solution up through a small central hose, all the way to the top of your Tower Garden.

From there, the nutrient solution drips through the central “tower” of the Tower Garden using a special device that evenly cascades the nutrient solution over the plant roots that are exposed there. On the journey down the tower, the nutrient solution feeds the plants’ roots and becomes highly oxygenated as gravity tumbles it back down to the reservoir.

This process is continually repeated—providing fresh oxygen, water, and nutrients to the roots of the plants.

Because of this process, the food crops in Tower Garden will grow faster than they would in soil,* and will need to be harvested on a more regular basis.

Natural -Spa Facial

 Natural -Spa Facial

Ingredients:                                                                                    Items Needed:

  1. Liquid Vitamin C                                                         1.  Washcloth or paper towels
  2. 1 tbsp. rice bran                                                            2.  Hair band
  3. 1 lemon cut in wedges                                                 3.  Warm H20
  4. A few drops of organic grapeseed oil

(jojoba oil if you are over 40)

*optional step– add one opened Juice Plus or Vineyard capsule and mix powders with rice

bran.  Your skin absorbs the antioxidant nutrient directly into the skin

 

Facial Steps:

  1. Pull hair back w/ headband.
  2. Rub liquid Vitamin C onto your face & neck avoiding eye area.  Wait 1-5 min.
  3. Add warm water to rice bran (and Juice Plus capsule powder if using) & make a paste w/ about 2 tbsp. of warm water.

             Wait a minute or 2 for it to soften so it will be gentler on your skin.  GENTLY rub

             paste into your skin & massage to exfoliate & nourish skin.  Do less rubbing

             over areas like cheeks & forehead where skin is naturally thinner.  Wait several

           minutes while the nutrients are absorbed.

  1. Squeeze the juice from the lemon.  Press pulp against your skin using a circular motion.  You will feel a tingling sensation.  The tingling is the astringent action tightening your skin & removing wrinkles, so don’t rush this!  Leave lemon juice on for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Place your washcloth in very warm water.  Squeeze most of water out & place it over your face; keep it on until it cools.  Then use damp washcloth to remove lemon pulp & rice bran particles from face.  Rinse the cloth in warm water & wipe again.  Repeat until all particles are off your face.
  3. Finish w/ grapeseed or jojoba oil; put a few drops on the palm of your hand & then spread it gently on your face.  This will not plug up your pores b/c you have already sealed the pores w/ lemon as an astringent.  If necessary, blot off excess oil w/ a clean, dry towel.

Benefits of Vitamin C:

  • Kills bacteria on skin & breaks up greasy, waxy deposits
  • Enhances collagen production & repair when used topically
  • It is an antioxidant
  • Decreases fine wrinkles & age spots
  • May provide UV protection

Benefits of Rice Bran:

  • Has B vitamins, minerals, & fiber
  • The grittiness from the fiber exfoliates dead cells
  • Diminishes blemishes & removes sebum & waste loosened by Vit. C treatment

Benefits of Lemon:

  • Soaks up toxins while bioflavonoids are absorbed; this also strengthens cells
  • Has a bleaching action on age spots & acne
  • Acts as an astringent bringing skin cells closer together (hence, that “tightening” feeling which seals the pores!)
  • Tones & nourishes your skin

Benefits of Grapeseed Oil (or Jojoba oil if you are over 40):

  • Used to moisturize your skin
  • Takes away tight feeling, but preserves taut & silky smooth surface!
