GROUP BUY launching TODAY…..through Nov. 30

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Oct 11, 2012

Every year, we provide a way for you to get RAW, UNPASTEURIZED almonds in our annual group buy. You can’t get them anywhere else, because retailers can buy only pasteurized almonds from California, Each buyer in our opportunity can buy only up to 100# by providing your name in the order.

What’s the big deal? California has forced almond growers to pasteurize all their nuts above 130 degrees. This kills enzymes. I’m passionate about teaching people to eat nutrient-dense raw plant foods. It’s infuriating that our government wants to pasteurize, irradiate, and fumigate everything with damaging chemicals and rays. So I’m providing you a direct path to a grower who holds out a portion of his crop without heat-treating the nuts. So YOU CAN STILL SOAK AND SPROUT THEM! This turns your high-nutrition food into a SUPERFOOD!

(California produces 85% of the world’s almonds. I’ve obtained truly raw almonds from Spain and Italy before, but they’re tres expensive, and no one likes the slightly bitter taste.)

While we’re at it, we provide about 25 other excellent pantry / food-storage staples, with huge discounts, for you to stock up on for the year.

I highly recommend you stock up on CHIA. It’s a power food, stored easily for long periods at a time with no nutrient loss, has unlimited uses, and the price is going WAY UP this year. We got a great deal. But next year, watch out. Truly, a very good idea to buy as much as possible. Worth its weight in gold in emergencies. I am buying my family a lot.

You can also offer through your buying club,  and get an order together. We have a spreadsheet you can use to mark up prices 20 percent for your effort, so that with 8-10 people participating in your buy, you can earn your own whole-foods staples for free. Check out that spreadsheet tool HERE.

The group buy kicks off TODAY and you can see what’s available HERE. Raw almonds, and a variety of other nuts, seeds, and other staples.

For sure load up on our amazing price on raw, organic COCONUT SUGAR. It is perfect for baking, substitute it 1:1 for any recipe calling for refined sugar. It has high mineral content, better than any other sweetener I know, and is actually a LOW GLYCEMIC food, which is amazing for a sweetener. The 5# bags are great for food storage.

Read the FAQ before sending any questions, and please be aware that we expect to be shipping in early December. That makes this different than normal online purchasing. We are gathering the orders to make the bulk buy (which is how we obtain special pricing) and this means the buy closes on Nov. 30, and we ship between Dec. 1-10.

We’re especially excited because we are launching our own product line of outstanding nutrition products, and EVERY one of them is “Buy Two Get One Free” for the group buy only.

Our GSG nutrition products increase the amount of greens, vegetables, and fruits your family eats, and in ways that taste good and appeal to children. That’s our new GreenSmoothieGirl Green Light, Red Light, and Chocolate Green Light products). (Replace other drink mixes with these powders, where one scoop has the antioxidant power of 20 servings of vegetables / greens / fruit! I’ve also added probiotics, natural plant fiber, and digestive enzymes.) This is different from SunWarrior’s Ormus Greens in that is tastes delicious, and kids love it—and it covers many other bases, too.

They cover your need to store living, sprouted foods against the future, and against emergencies, and getting those tricky, but all-important Essential Fatty Acids covered in your diet, with our Tri-Omega products. Sprouted chia seed, flaxseed, and broccoli seeds. (Add them to green smoothies! You’ll never even know they’re there, and nutrition does not get better than this product.)

We also have Buy Two Get One Free on our brand-new GreenSmoothieGirl Ultimate Minerals product. We used to carry Liquid Light from SunWarrior, but in addition to the powerful fulvic acid, I wanted humic acids, too, for the best complement of fermented, deep-earth, highly bio-available mineral supplements. My hair grows fast and my fingernails are outrageously long, strong, and healthy since I began testing this product. I’m excited about having the concentrated substance you can add to your water, rather than selling a highly diluted version and paying to ship it. One bottle is a one-month supply if you’re using three droppersful daily. After a month of that, you should be able to go to a maintenance dose of 1 to 2 droppersful daily.

And finally, I’ve formulated my own vegan protein powder. It’s hemp protein and split pea protein, but we’ve added medium-chain fatty acids from coconut oil, and the energy and power of the superfood maca, as well. It tastes lovely, sweetens your green smoothie with stevia and no added sugars, and it comes in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Buy two, get one free in the group buy. Three of one flavor, or a Variety Pack with one of each.

So check out the options; you have until Nov. 30 to place your order! We have already placed an order for many of the items that may sell out, based on our history for the past few years, so you should be fine if you order by Nov. 15, and after that, you take your chances. Last year our readers bought 50,000 lbs. of almonds, and this year we’ve bought only 40,000 lbs.

Keep in mind that almonds have gone up about 25% this year, and you well see that across the board in almond products on store shelves. The price we are getting is not only excellent—it’s also the only place you can get TRULY RAW almonds directly from the rancher, this year’s crop, no heat damage to the nutrients.

    Hi Robyn,

    Most of the links for the group buy do not work.

    Is it possible to order only the chia? It seems that in the past we also had to order almonds with every order.

    Thank you for getting back to me

    Waaah! No Einkorn pastas this year? They were so good and I was hoping to stock up again.

  4. Katie says:

    I will be organizing a group buy for UTAH and SALT LAKE COUNTIES again this year, or for anyone who wants to drive to OREM to pick up. Email me —

    Robyn – can we see the labels for your GSG red/chocolate/green drinks full size, so we can see the ingredients? The images in the store or the group buy page don’t enlarge enough to see them!

    Some of the weights (pounds) of your items listed for sale don’t match the pounds listed on the group buy worksheet. Which is correct, the worksheet or the poundage listed on the products on the website?

    How do I register for the group buy forum? The link keeps taking me to the page to sign up for the newsletter, which I already did.

    Robin, I am trying to register for the group buy forum and the link keeps redirecting me back to your home page. I already receive your newsletter, but the forum won’t take that email address so that is why I’m trying to register. Is there another link somewhere that I am missing for the forum registration? Thanks for your info and help.

    Are the chia seeds organic?

    I am organizing a group buy in the DFW Texas area for early November, 2012. Pick up is in McKinney/Plano. If you would like to order with my group, contact me at and I’ll send you an order form. Thanks!

  12. hemstewart says:

    So the buy 2 get 1 free offer – is that a built in thing? From what I can tell, when you purchase a 3-pack of something in the group buy you are essentially paying for 2 of the bags/containers, etc. and the 3rd is free? If not, please help me understand this – thanks!

  13. Kristine Reyes says:

    Are these organic? I’m in Santa Monica if anyone want to buy with me. Kristine

    I know you are busy, however, I would so appreciate it if you could take the time to do two things.
    1. Tell me how you store all these items that are available in bulk and
    2. How long they will last?
    I am timid about purchasing some items because I’m unsure I will use all of it within a certain time frame.

    Hi, Robyn,
    I ordered the variety pack of your new drink mixes on October 14th. I wanted to try them so I can see which ones I like and then get a large supply. Now I see that it says the items won’t ship until after December 1st, which is when the group buy ends. Isn’t there any way this situation can be rectified? Thanks in advance for you help. 🙂

    The raw almonds are a 50 pound buy, but how is that divided up and packaged?

  18. Casey P. says:

    Okay, great! I’m looking forward to trying them out. I do have a concern, however. I was just looking at the ingredient list online and noticed they contain green tea extract. It is my understanding that green tea is against the Word of Wisdom. Can you help me out with this? Thanks!

  19. Casey P. says:

    Shoot. This is really disappointing to me. I was so looking forward to using the mixes! I have read about the difference between green and black tea. They both come from the same camellia sinensis plant. The only difference between the two is that black tea is further processed by fermentation. I assume that when you say “hot tea” you mean black tea. Also, just because it is decaffeinated I don’t feel that makes it ok, just like I don’t think decaf coffee is ok.
    Would you consider making an alternative mixture excluding this ingredient?
    Sorry to be so difficult. 🙂

  20. Casey P. says:

    Could you tell me why you say green tea extract is not against the WoW? I want to understand and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Could you provide any references from a church leader?

  21. Cindy says:

    Totally off the topic…I am in need of a good ENT with an open mind to intergrative approach. I live in Utah county. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thank you all.
