The Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) comes into effect in Ontario on July 1st, 2010.  All vitamins and supplements that previously were only subject to the 5% GST will now be taxed at the full HST rate of 13%. 
Want to beat the HST?  We've put our entire stock of vitamins and supplements on sale for 10% off until June 30th.  Stock up and save...and don't pay any HST!

Books, diapers and feminine hygiene products are exempt from HST, but will continue to be taxed at 5% GST.

RECIPE - Summertime Salsa

It's no secret that summer is a very busy time for most people.  Trying to take advantage of the good weather doesn't leave a lot of time for planning and meal prep.   Luckily we've come up with a recipe that is great for taking to a potluck or mixing up after work as part of a no-fuss dinner.  Nothing says summer like salsa.  Get creative and add chopped cilantro, avocado or hot peppers to the mix.


2 cups of Organic Meadow frozen corn (thawed)
1 cup of Bandito's medium salsa
1/2 of a can of Eden organic black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 bunch of green onions (chopped or snipped with scissors)
juice of 1/2 a lime or 1 Tbsp of Succo di Limetta 100% organic lime juice
1 bag of Neal Brother's organic blue corn tortilla chips

Combine all ingredients (except tortilla chips) in a bowl and let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour in the refrigerator.  Serve with chips or add to a burrito, fajita or quesadilla.
