and the oxalate controversy rages on……

Heidi, a “low oxalate” blogger / site owner wrote a response. I like […]

Mortality, goodbye to my grampa, and taking youth for granted

Last weekend my grampa was in a hospital with pneumonia, his blood pressure 70/30 and they were unable to get an IV needle in him. We talk every day, my aunt or my dad, and I, about whether it’s time to fly to Couer d’Alene (via Spokane) to say goodbye. The crisis seems to be […]

Because we have the annual IONIZER group buy going on, I have the utterly infuriating subject of WATER QUALITY on my mind. In particular, chlorine and fluoride.

Next morning after I screwed up the sugar bet, I went for a run. I thought about telling Matthew.  I knew I had to. I would rather have a peaceful conscience than $10,000. That much was clear. I thought about telling you, my readers, who think I’m better than that. I ran along the beach […]

A sad update on the Sugar Bet….part 1 of 2

It controls seeds, harms small farmers, genetically modifies our crops and breeds pesticides into seeds and sterilizes them, and repeatedly hybridizes crops….all […]

I have been working for a long time on a way to get you quality kefir grains. It’s hard because they are live organisms, and so we cannot mass-produce them. I’m happy to announce that Melinda (GSG staff) and I have been growing them, both WATER grains and MILK grains, and we have them up […]

A Year Without Sugar

It’s been 2 months since I bet Matthew Flinders $10,000 that I wouldn’t eat sugar for a year. Here, he and I talk about it. It’s just NO BIG DEAL! (Kristin is behind the camera, if you’re wondering why I’m assuring her that I still love her even though she ate treats all through Texas […]
