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 […]

raw food: here’s what’s in my dehydrator right now

You know I love my dehydrator, especially this time of year when I’ve got so much stuff coming out of the garden that I don’t want to go to waste. Right now I have all 9 trays full in my dehydrator with two recipes contributed by readers. (I love y’all! Thanks for your ideas and […]

Sourdough starter still good?

I have never had much success with baking 100% whole wheat bread and if I couldn’t do it with yeast I wasn’t sure about my chances with sourdough starter, but I was willing to give it a go!   So with a bit of trepidation Iordered some sourdough starter to try making bread without yeast. […]

Grains and legumes made easy

I think sometimes we don’t make brown rice, split peas, lentils, or other wonderful whole-grain or legume dishes, only because we get home from work and don’t want to wait 45-60 minutes for those items to cook.   A reader wrote me with this tip, which I have used, too, for many years–I hope it […]

Gluten Free Live Granola & Breakfast

When I first got the recipes for the 12 steps, I was a little disappointed that the Live Granola contained oatmeal (my wife is gluten sensitive). I know many on this forum avoid gluten, so I thought I’d post the granola recipe we developed, as well as our favorite breakfast. Hope you enjoy them as […]

Crazy….

I just wanted to share what I read in our local Fort Collins, Colorado paper yesterday. As I was perusing the Life section looking for the comics I read this headline over a recipe, “MSG, lime add jolt to beef”. Thinking this must be a mistake I read through the recipe for Garlic, Lime Beef […]

Real egg vs. dehydrated in Oat-Coconut Cookie Mix

Hi Robyn, For the recipes using the Oat-Coconut mix from chp. 11 of the 12 steps, can I substitute a fresh egg for the dehydrated eggs (I have my own chickens and need to find uses for all my fresh eggs)?   I realize I would  need to add it later with the rest of […]

raw food: try this Rainbow Salad (way to use your zucchini and squash)

Here’s a fun way (from Ch. 5 of 12 Steps) to use the zucchini coming out of your garden (or your neighbor’s).   Thought I’d share it with you since I’m making it for dinner tonight on top of quinoa that takes 10 mins. to cook.   My kids groan about all the ways I […]

Who lives near me?

I am kind of interested in knowing if any of the people that frequent this site are in my area. It would be nice to meet someone local to see about doing things jointly with… such as an almond purchase. Is anyone intersted in listing name, city/state and maybe email for orders not local to […]

Birthday parties with whole foods!

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: What do you do for birthdays? So it’s my kids’ birthdays (yes, all of them–within three weeks of each other–go ahead and make your jokes about me and November).   And last night I had a family party.   Dinner was taco salad without the taco meat (though my mom brought BBQ chicken […]
