I want to tell you about these cool glass tea infusers that are on special for an unbelievable price of $2.95 right now. I'm not sure how long they will be at this price, but you can get one here. The glass tea infuser is beautiful and very well made. It normally sells for $8.95 at iHerb because they have such low prices but the standard retail price is $14.95. With this special offer you get it for only $2.95 (one per customer), and it's well worth it! I only got one at first, because being glass, it's tricky to photograph and hard to tell the quality from the photo. But as soon as I took it out of the box I couldn't wait to order another. It's a clever way to brew and drink loose tea by the cup. The glass mug has a lid and a removable glass infuser which fits inside. It looks really nice and the […] Read more »
I've found a great new source of fresh kefir grains! I'm thrilled to announce that Kombucha Kamp, my recommended source for all things Kombucha is now also selling fresh, live organic kefir grains! You can find both milk kefir grains and water kefir grains here. Previously I had only found reliable sources of dried kefir grains. But the problem with dried grains is that it takes a lot more time and work to get the grains back to health and up and producing like normal. Unfortunately, it's very common with dried grains that even when they get back to producing kefir, they don't multiply like the should. Meaning that something is not quite right, they are lacking in vitality. Now there are times when you may need to use dried kefir grains. But unless you absolutely have to I'd highly recommend going for the live grains instead. In case you're new to kefir and want to find out more about […] Read more »
This book was a free kindle book for a couple of days when I first posted this article (the freebie special is over now). I literally just got it so I haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes yet. At a glance flicking through it many look interesting enough to try. It has very gotten good reviews. The first part of the book has what almost looks like a summary of the information in the very well researched and eye-opening book Wheat Belly by William Davis MD that I have been reading. I'll be posting a review of it when I finish and more articles that talk about how wheat affects our body. But let me just say here, for anyone who is interested in eating healthier, I think the book Wheat Belly should be mandatory reading. Now, getting back to the book Wheat Fast Low Carb Cookbook let me tell you a little more about the recipes at a glance... Read more »
Honey bees are essential to our food supply. They, along with all other bees are facing a crisis right now. You might have heard of Colony Collapse Disorder, sometimes also called Spontaneous Hive Collapse. Bees are dying off at an alarming rate, and have been for some time now. The term Colony Collapse Disorder was used in late 2006 to describe the trend that bee keepers and scientists were becoming of aware of. It's a serious threat to our food supply. Both honey bees and bumble bees are used in agriculture for pollinating crops. Bees pollinate many of our food crops, and of course are responsible for the production of honey as well. So, if the bees all die off, it's not just honey that we will lose. For the plants that rely on bees, in order for the plant to bear fruit pollination has to occur first. When I say fruit, it's not just what we typically think of […] Read more »
What's the best diet? Is there even one diet that is best for every body? If you've been trying to eat a healthier diet and have done any research at all into it you probably already know how confusing and contradicting all the information can be. One thing is for sure, the traditional food pyramid isn't the key and the standard American diet (SAD) is not the answer. So what is? A free online event that I’m really excited about has just begun. I listen to a lot of these things, and I usually learn a lot. This one is special though, it's an absolutely brilliant idea, and it's never been done before. It's called “The Great Health Debate,” a 7 day, online event that features diet experts from all different schools of thought – vegan, raw vegan, vegetarian, meat eating, etc.- together to debate how you can make your diet better. It should make for some very interesting discussions. Read more »
You may have noticed that many of my recipes are raw food recipes. If you're really serious about eating healthy, I believe this is the way to go. I notice the tremendous difference in my own body when I'm eating healthy raw and living foods compared to when I'm eating healthy cooked food. Back in the 1980s I went raw. I was hired as a chef in a vegetarian restaurant that also featured raw food. It was my first introduction to raw and living food, and it was great being able to try everything. But because I was also making cooked food, and I'm good with creating new recipes, but I have to try it as I go along I was also eating cooked food. Later, after I left that job and was working to set up a deli in a large health food shop, I ended up going raw without even realizing it at first. I was living in […] Read more »
