Vegetable Powder

So, I was listening to one of my usual healthy podcasts a few months ago (sorry I can’t remember which one :). And the special guest was Dr. Thomas Cowan. He is a holistic physician and author practicing in San Francisco who specializes in helping people through diet and natural medicines. Dr Cowan and his family are also the founders of Dr Cowan’s Garden which specializes in vegetables powders. They believe vegetables give you the power to live your life with vitality and freedom from disease. And to protect their vitality, they dehydrate their organically grown vegetables with low heat and store them as powders in Miron violet glass jars.

Wow, sounds like a great way to add more vegetables to my family’s diet. Sign me up! So, I ordered a jar of Dr Cowan’s Garden three fold blend powder. It consists of carrots, beets, Swiss chard, Kale, and winter squash. All organic. You can add a tablespoon of this powder to just about anything. Soups, stews, baked goods, eggs, smoothies, etc. It gives you a diverse blend of veggies in a scoop of powder. It’s great!! It’s a little pricey (about $50 a jar). But it’s worth it.
