Avo Parsley Green Smoothie

No Comments 03 February 2014

Dear Friends,

Greens are the most nutritious source of food on Earth and that is why all creatures on our planet consume some form of greens. Even polar bears eat moss, tigers and lions munch on grass, and wales consume algae. Greens have been an essential part of the human diet since the beginning of time, but during the last two centuries, people in western countries have almost completely stopped eating them.

Green smoothies help us to catch up with consuming enough greens. Here is my favorite recipe from last week.

Green Kombucha Smoothie

No Comments 13 January 2014

green kombucha smoothie Green Kombucha Smoothie
Dear Friends,
I love to experiment and during the last couple of weeks I have been using kombucha as a base for my smoothies. Actually, “kombucha” is not a proper name for this drink since it is the name of a company that sells the drink. The word “Kombucha” comes from Japanese “kombu” – seaweed and “cha”- tea, and means seaweed tea, which does not apply to what people call “kombucha.” A more appropriate name for this drink is “mushroom tea.” But similar to “Xerox” or “Crayola” the name of the brand took off in the place of the product. Depicted in the photo is my own kombucha mushroom that I grow in a gallon glass jar. Making my own costs me next to nothing, where store-bought kombucha can be quite expensive.

Kombucha is very high in glucaric acid, and recent studies have shown that glucaric acid helps prevent cancer. It also contains glucosamines that help prevent all forms of arthritis. Kombucha is said to improve digestion, fight candida, and boost your immunity system through its high levels of antioxidants. You may read more about this mushroom tea here: Below is one of my favorite recipes with Kombucha.

puppy kale Green Kombucha SmoothieGreen Kombucha Smoothie

1 bunch of kale
2 peeled kiwis
1 apple
1 ripe banana
2 cups kombucha (mushroom tea)

Yields 2 quarts


I was going to make a smoothie from this kale and provide a photo for you, but Valya visited me along with her puppy, and the puppy stole the kale.
So, instead, enjoy the photo of a happy and healthy puppy.

Sale This Week

We have been receiving more comments from our customers about the Jawcercisers™. We even received letters from two dentists. They both confirmed that jawcercisers improve the bone density in teeth and jaws but said they were not interested in carrying them. I think I know why.

From the feedback we receive it appears that jawcercisers work best for children, young adults, and people with their own teeth as a perfect prevention against tooth decay. For those who have crowns, dentures, and other dental devices, the Jawcercisers seem to be less effective.

The Jawcerciser enables its user to compensate for missing adequate chewing. This simple device is a resistance exerciser for your jaw. Regular use of the Jawcerciser naturally increases the saliva flow and provides proper resistance for your teeth. Use of Jawcerciser for 1–3 minutes (or more) once or twice a day can greatly improve your oral health. We chew on them ourselves!

We now carry only one kind of Jawcercisers, made from resin. This week we offer Jawcerciser at $10 off. The sale will end next Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Happy chewing!

Cranberries, a True Superfood at Your Store

No Comments 30 December 2013

Cranberries are in season. These red berries are a true superfood.

Weight Losscranberries Cranberries, a True Superfood at Your Store
The December issue of Nutrition Journal has just published some new research, which demonstrates that flavonoids, present in high levels in cranberries promote healthy weight in those who regularly consumes cranberries.

Earlier this month Dr. Michael Greger published an article “Which Fruit Fights Cancer Better?” about cranberries. These berries were found to suppress the growth of human liver cancer cells in vitro. Other studies have found similar effects against human breast, colon, brain tumor, oral, and ovarian cancer cells. Cranberries also possess strong anti-cancer properties in cases with prostate cancer. 1

Cardiovascular Health
Berries are a good source of polyphenols, especially anthocyanins, micronutrients, and fiber. In epidemiological and clinical studies, these constituents have been associated with improved cardiovascular risk profiles. 2 Scientists recommend cranberries along with other berries as a heart-healthy diet.

Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections
Cranberries contain two compounds that seem to help keep certain bacteria (like E. coli) from attaching to the urinary tract wall. Studies offer evidence that women who drink cranberry juice may suffer fewer symptomatic urinary tract infections.

Add Cranberries to Green Smoothies
Fresh cranberries are usually very tart and not so tasty. In my family we add a handful of cranberries daily to our green smoothies. I usually buy several extra bags and freeze them, so that we can have them after the season is over.

Raw Family Holiday Bundle

No Comments 09 December 2013

Dear Friends,

During the past two weeks I have been driving around with my car loaded full of my children’s books, which I give as presents to many people, friends and strangers, at the store, at the post office, and on the street. I believe that today’s children need health education more than ever.

In this cold month of December, I would like to introduce as many people as possible to green smoothies and health. For this reason I have put together this generous package of books and DVDs. All items are material products (not digital). I offer this bundle of 10 items for $25, at the price below my own cost. I hope you pass along these books and DVDs, give them away, and place them under decorated trees. Perhaps as a result our combined efforts, we will soon see more people drinking smoothies and restoring their health.
