Green Religion

February 3rd marks a special day amongst many jewish people - Tu Bishvat, which literally means "the new year of trees." Who knew "green" ran so deep amongst my tribe:-) While I could dig deep into my vague jewish education, I think you will find this cartoon a bit more informative and entertaining.

The main activity on this minor jewish holiday is planting trees in open places in Israel. It is also customary to eat different types of fruit on this holiday. Evidently there are seven species specifically to embrace including: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates.

So whether is is the seven species of fruits or Naturalpath's top power foods , try to incorporate more "fruit of the earth" this weekend - if not for your own health, for the sake of my 3 year old nephew Eli who is working tirelessly planting a tree today:-)
