Q&A

Questions I have been asked: 1. What constitutes RAW—does that mean that everything is not cooked? Uncooked plant food (vegs, fruit, seeds, nuts, grains) have excellent vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.  The minute you cook it, you alter it molecularly, destroy all the enzymes and some of the vitamins and minerals.  The only way to eat […]

My kids sound off about green smoothies

Here’s the uncensored written opinion of my kids—let your kids read this if you’re thinking of converting them to GREEN eating! Tennyson, age 7: I like green smoothies with berries in them.   And pears.   And apples.   And bananas.   And collards.   Sometimes I don’t like when my mom puts TOO much […]
