Front Door Organics Toronto

Lightly Stewed Black Kale with Potatoes, Chickpeas, Olives & Lemon  
  • 1 bunch black kale
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium yellow onion or shallot
  • 1 pound Sieglinde potatoes
  • 1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup black Kalamata olives
  • A handful parsley
  • Water or stock
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 oz goat feta (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper
Dice the onion, smash and mince the garlic.  Peel the lemon lightly so you have about 3 or 4 strips of peel. Wash the kale and remove any thick stems; stack the leaves and slice into strips about ½ inch in width.  Wash the potatoes and slice into ¾ inch thick rounds. 

In a large fry pan, on medium heat, warm the olive oil with the lemon peel and garlic.  Once warm, add the onions, stir and sweat for a minute or so, add the kale.  When the kale brightens slightly, add potatoes and about ½ cup of stock or water, partially cover and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes, adding more water or stock if necessary.  You want to lightly braise everything so you want some liquid but not a soup.Continues over…

Meanwhile, chop the olives roughly and chop the parsley.  After the kale and potatoes are just tender, add the chickpeas and olives, warm through and stir in parsley and add a squeeze of lemon juice.  Season lightly with salt and season generously with black pepper.  Serve crumbled with goat feta if you like or a drizzle of olive oil.

Warm Rice Salad with Roasted Squash & Caramelized Onions

  • 3 cups of butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 medium yellow onions, finely sliced
  • 2 cups cooked long grain rice
  • ⅓ cup sunflower seeds
  • ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil + 2 – 3 Tbsp
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ red or yellow pepper
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 Tbsp warm water

Preheat oven to 375.

Set the onions on to cook: in a cast-iron pan warm 2 tablespoons of olive oil and gently cook the onions until very caramelized, about 45 minutes to an hour; stir occasionally.  Season with salt and pepper.

Toss the squash in a generous splash of olive oil along with a couple pinches of salt, and arrange on a baking sheet, being careful not to over-crowd it; roast for 45 minutes, until brown and starting to caramelize.  Stir or turn occasionally.

Meanwhile prepare the dressing by blending together the sunflower seeds, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, garlic and pepper, until creamy. Add a few tablespoons of warm water to thin the dressing a bit.

When everything is cooked and still warm, add the rice to a large bowl and toss with a dessert spoonful of the dressing.  Add most of the onions and most of the squash and gently toss.  Serve with the remaining onions and squash scattered on top and a drizzle of the dressing.

Declutter your life: From Chaos to Calm

by Infinite Ideas

Clutter can damage your health and affect your wealth. Think we’re exaggering? Here's the thing: everything you own needs to be kept clean or you're breathing in dust and creating an environment loved by icky pests.          

The more useless things you have, the more useless stuff you have to clean. Clutter also affects you financially because if you don't know what you have because it is hidden in among the clutter, you go out and re-buy it. Plus there's the hidden value in junk (defined as something you don't love or need) that's not in your pocket because you haven't gotten round to selling it. Clutter can also lead to despair. Instead of feeling like you're home, you feel like you're in a stranger's (messy) home because you haven't had the courage to make decisions about your things and really put your stamp on your own home.

It seems like such a mammoth task that you get exhausted before you even start. Clutter saps energy and makes you feel overwhelmed. But before you hire a skip and chuck everything away, do bear in mind that clutter isn't just having a lot of things. So getting rid of stuff is an important activity, but where do you start? Declutter your life is here to help. It will help you to make the commitment today to tackle your clutter, make those vital decisions about what is to go and unlock the brilliant new stress-free life you want and deserve.

Injunction lifted on sales of Merz's Botox competitor

Injunction lifted on sales of Merz's Botox competitor

Date: Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Reporter- The Business Journal

A 10-month court-ordered injunction against Merz North America's product Xeomin expires today, the company said in a news release.
That injunction was imposed last March after a judge ruled that employees Merz had hired away from rival drug makerAllergan, Inc. (NYSE: AGN) had used stolen confidential information while with Merz. Xeomin is a competitor to Allergan's popular wrinkle-fighting drug Botox.
CEO Bill Humphries said the injunction was a "challenge" but Merz North America, which is based in High Point, has improved compliance training and continued development on a number of new products.
"Moving into 2013 our focus will be on sales and marketing execution in the marketplace, business development and licensing, and the organic expansion of our pipeline to better serve patients and physicians," he said.

To recruit guys for this once-in-a-lifetime epic journey, AXE® is creating the AXE Apollo™ Space Academy (A.A.S.A) with one of the first men to walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin. Beginning today, by joining A.A.S.A at, guys and girls will have a chance to compete for one of 22 tickets to travel to space on a flight with international space agency, Space Expedition Corporation (SXC).

In the biggest product launch in its 30-year history, AXE® is asking guys and girls from 60 countries in 45 languages around the globe to sign up for the A.A.S.A by creating their astronaut profile on and telling the world why they deserve to go to space. Two Canadians, with the most votes, will win a place at the final stage at the AXE Global Space Camp in Orlando, Florida where the final 22 space travelers will be selected based on competitive space-simulation challenges. 

“Space travel for everyone is the next frontier in the human experience,” said Buzz Aldrin, legendary astronaut and pilot of the historic Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon in 1969. “I’m thrilled that AXE is giving the young people of today such an extraordinary opportunity to experience some of what I’ve encountered in space.” 

AXE, known as LYNX in some parts of the world, with SXC has secured 22 seats aboard the suborbital spacecraft, aptly named, the Lynx. SXC, led by CEO Michiel Mol, operates XCOR Aerospace’s Lynx suborbital space plane that will take passengers more than 100 kilometers into space, achieving astronaut status. 

“The AXE Apollo™ launch is the biggest and most ambitious in the AXE brand’s 30 year history,” said Tomas Marcenaro, global Vice President for AXE. “For the first time, we’re simultaneously launching one global competition in over 60 countries offering millions of people the opportunity to win the most epic prize on earth. A trip to space – yes, actual space.”

Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) Space Expedition Corporation’s (SXC) goal is to offer daily commercial flights into space as of 2014 on the XCOR Aerospace’s Lynx suborbital reusable launch vehicle. Participants will have a life-changing experience when viewing our planet Earth from 100+ kilometers and achieving astronaut status. The Lynx is a two seat fully reusable space plane that is designed and built by XCOR Aerospace (XCOR). SXC is the launch customer of this space vehicle that comfortably takes off and lands as a normal airplane from regular airports. The Curacao airport in the Caribbean will most probably be the first location – and first purely commercial Spaceport – outside the USA. The flexibility of the Lynx spacecraft makes it possible to operate from almost any commercial airport. XCOR and SXC have sold over 200 flights to date. The Lynx’s full reusability ushers in a new era for the aerospace industry, potentially foreshadowing future superfast long range environmentally friendly travel outside our atmosphere. It is this vision that made KLM airlines decide to offer a partnership to SXC in 2010. The company is led by CEO Michiel Mol who has a strong international track record in IT (founder LBi), Formula 1 (founder Sahara Force India Formula 1), and Marketing (founder Guerilla Games) among other pursuits. 

No purchase required. Open to Canadian residents over age of majority. Enrolment closes 11:59:59pm EST Aug 31/13. ARV of all prizes $125,000. See for details.

Everyday Living™ General Merchandise ~ favourite !

Spring may not be in the air, but it’s definitely on the mind. Transform your home into a garden inspired haven. Subtle additions like botanical posters or a floral accent wall can do wonders for wellness when the weather outside is bleak.

- Consider a comfortable floral wingback chair to relax in while peeling off the winter layers at the end of a long day.

- If you find floral patterns too feminine or overwhelming for your design aesthetic, integrate popular menswear patterns such as houndstooth or herringbone in spring colours like yellow, coral and soft blue.

- Balance this look with soft white furniture and mirrored accent pieces.

- Coloured glass can be practical, and decorative. Group multiple pieces of glass together to create a striking centre piece.

- Spring into bed with floral print bedding for warm and pleasant dreams.
