sugar replacement: possibly the best solution

You know I recommend only sparing use of any concentrated sweeteners. A while ago, I posted a recipe featuring COCONUT SUGAR. I’d been given a sample of it, and I was enjoying substituting it for Sucanat (my previous “standby” for baked goods). I didn’t realize how hard to find it was until y’all wrote me […]

what I do every day, in my family

In a couple of interviews I’ve done for people lately, I’ve been asked, “What do you do in your family to ensure a healthy diet with lots of enzymes and nutrition?” I find myself thinking, “Really, you want that in a 30-second sound byte?” I mean, everything I do is about that. I’ve written whole […]

You want to get your whole family addicted to raw vegetables? Even kids? I’ve got the secret key to that! Check out this video I did with Doug Holmes: You’re going to have a tough time shifting to a mostly plant-based diet unless you learn to make lots of salads you love. (Step 2 of […]

Effects of alkaline water for a GSG reader

Jenni forwarded me this email from GSG reader Linda who participated in one of our ionizer group buys. Jenni is my customer support lead, a GSG reader I met at Costco 2 years ago. She is thinking about getting a machine in her home in the current group buy, so I think she asked Linda, […]

baseball, apple pie, and . . . green smoothies?

I was asked recently for photographic evidence of my son Tennyson’s snacks in the dugout that radically differ from traditional standards. It wasn’t easy to capture boys sitting together eating (since they are usually PLAYING), and this isn’t the greatest photo, but here ya go. I love baseball, but I don’t love blue PowerAde and […]

food and love, part 2

Gilbert went to an ashram in India and studied, meditated, and prayed as a follower of a Guru. At first I was skeptical of the Guru idea, but in Eastern traditions, a person is so committed to devotion to God that she may obtain a tremendous amount of education, and spend many hours a day […]

The xZubi Disc

The xZubi Disc Your child’s brain is highly susceptible to damaging man-made radiation from his cell phone. He’s also getting exposure from the laptop, PC, TV, and microwave. Your brain is vulnerable, too. But your child’s brain is developing, and highly sensitive, and hard-headed as she may sometimes seem to you, her skull isn’t as […]

I found the coolest muscle stim / massage gadget

Stress after work, stiff neck, joint pain, sore feet, cramping legs, back pain, achy shoulders? You will love this! When I went to Expo West in Anaheim recently, I saw 1,900 booths in 3 days! It’s like a trade-show marathon, that place! You could eat all kinds of “organic” and “natural” junk food. At the […]

Natural Ways to Deal with Stress

My friends, the past month has been one of the most stressful periods  in memory. Not “too-much-work” stress (the kind you can dig your way out of) but just “life-circumstances” stress (the kind you can’t usually solve–you just have to slog through it). You know what I’m talking about. You’ve been through stuff too, huh. […]

Happy Thanksgiving! And (yum yum yum!) do you like hot cocoa?

This morning I’m compiling my kids’ Christmas wish lists to brave Black Friday early in the morning with my girlfriend. (Gulp. I haven’t done that in 15 years.) I’m putting together the big vegetable plate (okay, I’m taking the plastic off the Costco one I bought) and making a giant fruit salad, as my contributions […]
