The Next Superfood

Trends go beyond fashion. There’s always a car that’s in vogue, a pet du jour and foods that are falling in and out of favor. Pomegranates used to reign supreme; now it’s kale. West Marin’s Living Seed Company (LSC) could be ground zero for the next trend. The company’s seed-to-table dinners promote local, freshly harvested ingredients, now including a rare seed being grown in Point Reyes Station — the Inca Berry, brought over from Colombia last spring. “Its vigor has been awe-inspiring,” says Astrid Lindo of LSC. Not only is this berry rich in beneficial vitamins like C, B and A, it’s also a great source of protein and is drought tolerant and resistant to most pests and diseases. Talk about a superfood.
