We are pleased to announce our new line of healthy functional foods. Functional foods provide more than basic nutrition. They have bioactive food components that can potentially enhance health when eaten on a regular basis as part of a varied diet. They offer life essential vitamins and minerals, and also contain an array of phytochemicals (plant chemicals) that may fight certain diseases.
This line of food created by Robin Gentry McGee, CHHP, AADP, and produced by Dorothy Lane Market takes the traditional approach to healthy eating one step further. Some may remember Robin from her restaurant Just Great Foods, the area’s first organic whole foods restaurant. Shortly after closing Just Great Foods, Robin’s father suffered a very sudden traumatic brain injury. Becoming frustrated by what was being given to her father through his feeding tube and not being able to find an alternative, Robin created Liquid Hope™, an organic whole foods feeding tube formula. After seeing the dramatic change in her father’s physical health, she became intrigued by the concept of utilizing food as medicine and set about to study what would change her career path and ultimately her life.
Robin has created this product line based on her passion and studies. Her line includes these 100% organic great tasting soups:
Sweet potato and ginger bisque (nourishing)
Kale, dandelion, and sweet potato bisque (purifying)
Mildly spicy lentil and vegetable soup (vitality)
Curried shitake and chickpea soup (strengthening)
Magic mineral broth (like an internal treatment)
Robin is very excited to be able to offer Rebecca Katz’s broth as part of her line. Rebecca is the author of One Bite at a Time and The Cancer Fighting Kitchen, and she works closely with the national cancer community.
A line of entrées will follow shortly and Robin’s Liquid Hope™ is available by special order through the Healthy Living department.
