One aspect of launching a food business that is very expensive, confusing, and at times frustrating, is generating proper NUTRITIONAL FACTS LABELS. There are many expensive options out there, but many of these are far too expensive for the small scale food producer. I remember thinking that there was such an opportunity for a smaller business to help those starting out. So I decided to do it myself.

As Valentine's Day approaches, I have had a heavy heart. I rarely read a lot of news stories but lately it has been hard to ignore all of the tragic events in our world. I have had a hard time feeling hopeful and reconciling my purpose when I know that there are so many people suffering, many of whom are women and children.
I was searching for a sign. Something to remind me of hope and help me believe in it again. It was actually the words of my daughter that provided a much needed message of hope and love for me. And I am realizing that everything is all about heart. This world of ours, this life I am living, all of it really comes down to something very simple. Matters of the heart.
And so for this Valentine's Day, rather than celebrating the traditional notion of romantic love, I am trying to spread the hope of self love. More and more I know that when we love ourselves, truly and completely, we are able to love others as they need to be loved. When we love just a few people in the world, it is our small but profound gift to the world.
