The Green Smoothies Diet Book vs. 12 Step Subscription vs. Biggest Green Smoothie Recipe Collection

Hi Robyn, I’ve been lurking on the site for the past 2 months while I’ve been saving money for a Blendtec.   I’m about ready to purchase one, but now I’m confused as to what literature I should purchase along with it.   Would you explain the differences between  your 12 step Subscription, the Biggest […]

Leavened bread - 1

Naturally Leavened Bread Made with Kamut

12 Stepper Darlene in Canada sent me these gorgeous photos of the whole-grain, 100% naturally leavened bread she made with Kamut rather than wheat, for her gluten-intolerant daughter.
