I have some items left in the group buy

Hi LOCALS (sorry if you’re not)– I made a mistake and placed our group order with three people unpaid.   They  still haven’t  picked up  or paid, so I have some items here (being stored in air conditioning) for you, while supplies last.   You don’t need to order $200 minimum–just let me know what […]

Colloidal Silver

Good Day Robyn~ I am wondering where/how to order the 1/2 gallon of colloidal silver mentioned on your site under “food storage”. Also, my friend showed me your site nearly a week ago, and we are both “doing it”. Her husband has joined her in going green, and she is a big support to me. […]

a bunch of random things

Locals in Utah County, at Sunflower Market right now, whole pitted dates in the bins are $2.79/lb., good price.   I love their produce, too, by the way (the candy section and the fact that they sell pork is really inexplicable, but . . . whatever).   Organic apples continue to be $0.99 at Good […]

very limited amount of raw almonds in the GSG.com store

I have just a few hundred pounds of raw, unpasteurized  almonds left, and I’m willing to ship them, and you can order 50 lbs. instead of 100 if you want.   Shipping adds $1/lb., so they are $4/lb. if you are not local.   (We lost money in the group buy shipping to the east […]

Agave Nectar Source

I have changed to using only agave nectar for sweetner in our foods. I have only found it available locally in small size containers.  It  is unreasonably expensive that way… not to mention that I seem to run out frequently. It takes 2 containers just to make one recipe of Almond Joy! I saw you […]

find me on Facebook, and other news

Are you on Facebook?   If so, make me your “friend” by searching for Robyn Openshaw-Pay.   (It’s also a great way to keep tabs on what your teenagers are up to!)   See you there. In other news/reminders, I just did a group buy on ionizers, and Life Ionizer is letting me add a […]

“cleanup” on group orders

I leave tonight on a redeye to Costa Rica for a week where I intend to get really brown and see some rain forest and butterfly farms and beaches and volcanoes.   While I’m gone, I will magically continue to blog! Tomorrow 2,000 lbs. of raw almonds (again, sold only in 100 lb. increments) will […]

is agave safe?

Recently GSG readers raised questions about agave nectar after some well publicized concerns surfaced on the internet.   Agave is my favorite sweetener because it’s largely unprocessed and is a very low glycemic index product with a neutral flavor.   Many of my recipes call for it, and I have found the human body reacts […]

is agave good food?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: What about the controversy surrounding agave? Answer: I have seen a couple of people with clout on the internet say that one should be careful with agave.   They make a decent point that since much of the product imported into the U.S. is from Mexico, we don’t always know what we’re getting.
