All the good stuff is under attack. Being on the GAPS diet we eat a lot of almonds, in fact I just finished making almond-cashew and honey cookies tonight. If anyone has a good source of almonds please let me know!

WASHINGTON — A federal judge has again upheld U.S. Agriculture Department rules requiring treatment of raw almonds, in the latest blow to organic farmers in California’s San Joaquin Valley.
The mandatory pasteurization or chemical treatments protect consumers from salmonella. The requirement to apply them is also well within the Agriculture Department’s power, a federal judge ruled this week.
