“biological concentration”

I read a post by a 12 Stepper on the other blog on this site, expressing her frustration about the expense of non-organic food and even wondering if it’s worth it to eat a plant-based diet, with all the pesticides on vegetables and fruits. Dr. McDougall says in The McDougall Program for Women (1999) that […]

SWEETENERS (Note, that I am uneasy about fructose, xylitol, “organic sugar,” or dehydrated cane juice crystals—ways to spend extra money on refined […]

Who you gonna call: Part V Really expensive candy that won’t make you healthy

Moving on to the Xocai chocolate people: they have a great sales pitch! They show the ORAC score of cacao (chocolate), and it’s way impressive.   Right up there with goji berries.   I like to use a little raw cacao for that very reason, in my recipes.   But, my friends . . . […]

raw sweet potatoes and Jamaican cheese

Costco has the coolest new item in produce: raw sweet-potatos, peeled and cut in  sticks.   Sweet potatoes are something you may not have eaten RAW before, but they’re crunchy, mild, and best of all, one of just a handful of foods that have all of the eight amino acids your body cannot manufacture on […]

sprouting seeds and nuts

Q: ABOUT SEEDS: In your granola recipe, you indicate soaking sunflower/pumpkin seeds overnight makes them living plants.   I had understood this (making them living plants) didn’t happen until you could see the beginning of sprouting.   Can you do this with flax seeds, soak them overnight and add them to the green smoothie?   […]
