A cup of joe…..friend or foe?

I’ve mentioned that I grew up not drinking milk and still never do. So why has my bone density “off the chart” for a 20-year old even though I’m mid-forties?

Sour Dough Bread/Kefir

I think I might be doing something wrong with my sour dough starter that I bought from the source in the 12 steps book. I feed and water it everyday and leave it in a jar on the counter. It has a real fermented smell. It forms a waters, bubbly layer each day. I finally […]

Alternative for Soy Milk

I have read the China Study and know that we should not consume animal protein or at least keep it at 5% of the daily intake.   I also have read that soy products are not what they seem, so if we should stay away from animal products and soy is not that good, what […]

Milk Substitutes?

Hi! my name is Dina, I’m 27 y/o from Tel Aviv, Israel. I’m new to Robyn’s website and find it a treasure of information. I guess one could define me as “flexitarian”. My aim is to eventually consist 70% of my diet on raw foods. The question is: Breakfast! Besides the wonderful smoothies – green, […]
