sugar replacement: possibly the best solution

You know I recommend only sparing use of any concentrated sweeteners. A while ago, I posted a recipe featuring COCONUT SUGAR. I’d been given a sample of it, and I was enjoying substituting it for Sucanat (my previous “standby” for baked goods). I didn’t realize how hard to find it was until y’all wrote me […]

Is agave a superfood or a poison?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Dr. Mercola says agave is going to kill me! Is he right? Answer: I have been inundated with emails about this. In every class I teach, someone brings it up. First of all, Dr. Mercola didn’t exactly say that, although he allowed it on his web site. Mercola is a brand, a big […]

Natural Ways to Deal with Stress

My friends, the past month has been one of the most stressful periods  in memory. Not “too-much-work” stress (the kind you can dig your way out of) but just “life-circumstances” stress (the kind you can’t usually solve–you just have to slog through it). You know what I’m talking about. You’ve been through stuff too, huh. […]

So we’re off to Peru for a humanitarian adventure!

So I am gone to Peru for 10 days with my daughter. (No, it won’t be sunny and warm, but thanks for the well wishes just the same!) I’m sure I’ll tell you all about it when I get home! Despite my sketchy access to a computer, I will magically continue to blog here regularly—and […]

raw food in India? an interesting email from a reader

We get some really interesting email, and I’ve pasted one below that we got this week that I think you’ll enjoy. It corroborates what I have noticed being in 16 countries in the past 18 months. That is, the influence of American culture on the rest of the world has not been wholly positive, and […]

the rest of the Word of Wisdom

Here’s the rest of the body of scripture known as the Word of Wisdom.   Tomorrow I’ll comment on my theory about why  the scripture  doesn’t talk about soft drinks, sugar, refined foods, etc. (beyond the obvious fact that the scripture predates the invention of those  “foods”).   And I’ll comment on some of the […]

hardcore smoothies

Do you make hardcore smoothies? I’m talking about making them for health benefits rather than taste.   You really can’t do this if one of the GS drinkers from your blender will be a new convert or a child.   Or if you’re squeamish about textures and tastes. I love Xtreme people.   People who […]
