Now you can get KEFIR GRAINS from GreenSmoothieGirl.com

I have been working for a long time on a way to get you quality kefir grains. It’s hard because they are live organisms, and so we cannot mass-produce them. I’m happy to announce that Melinda (GSG staff) and I have been growing them, both WATER grains and MILK grains, and we have them up […]

Beet Kvass

I recently taught you how to make Rejuvelac. If, like me, you’re looking to increase lacto-fermented, probiotic foods in your diet, today I’ve got another idea for you. (Try to get at least two cultured foods in your diet every day! This is Step 8 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods.) Have you ever heard […]

Creative Health Institute, part 3 of 5

Here’s a video of Ed and me. He makes a living selling processed food, and he came to CHI because his mom paid for it and told him to go. He had no idea what he was getting himself into. I told him, “That’s because if she told you about the wheat grass implant, you […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl for Arizona, part 4 of 4

Chris: What’s the best way to combat diarrhea? GSG: If it’s chronic, it’s likely evidence of a degenerative colon issue. Start getting a probiotic-rich FOOD in your diet every day. (Not just a pill, which is inferior.) For example, kefir, yogurt, kombucha, homemade sauerkraut or other fermented vegetables. Eat whole foods, which have a lot […]

Surgery

I am having surgery in a week and a half to repair a labral tear in my hip. Is there anything I can take to prepare my body and also to help it recover? I never take any medications, so this will be new to be taking “drugs.” Thank you! Meghan

green smoothies, free apples, strep throat, antibiotics

Locals, if you’re near Lindon / North Orem, there are boxes of free apples in the “Share the Bounty” hut near my house: just south of Center St. on 400 E. (just on the Orem side). They’re not pretty (so they’re probably unsprayed) so the owner clearly could not sell these apples, but they taste […]

Question: Can I eat just green smoothies?

This is a serious question. I’ve been drinking green and pink smoothies for about a month, and I’m elated.   I love them.   I try to make them as healthy as possible (trying not to overdo the fruits) and put all kinds of additional things in them besides my staples of massive quantities of […]

Enzymes — help!

Would love some guidance regarding buying enzymes.   My vitamin shop has dozens of bottles — what should we look for?   Can you recommend a particular brand, or else please explain which enzymes are the “right” ones, which ones aren’t?   Years ago my naturopath steered me toward Wobenzym http://www.wobenzym-usa.com/, but it appears those […]

Living Foods

Robyn and friends, I am looking for information and ideas on using sprouted wheatberries after using them to make rejeuvelac. I do not see any recipe in  Robyn’s book about using them. I do  not eat breads so was really looking for a raw recipe or idea. I am dehydrating some now to see about […]

what enzymes do to make food digestible . . . part 6

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Which enzyme supplement should I take?   If you’re going to eat at least some of your meals that are partially or fully cooked or processed, please always take 1 or 2 capsules of digestive enzymes first.   If you read my site, blog, or book, you know I am generally skeptical of […]
