I love all dark greens, […]

Dried Fruits & Enzymes

Hey Robyn, When purchasing  dried organic fruit from Azure Standard or similar sites, do the dried fruits still have all the enzymes intact? Is the drying process above 115 degrees? What’s the bottom line? Thanks!!!

exclusively breast feed for how long???

My son is 6mth old today.   I am not introducing solids at this point.   He isn’t ready.   I liked Robyn’s take on nursing till 18mth old and was glad to have the knowledge about babies not having the proper enzymes to digest cooked food till their canine teeth come in… which is […]
