Smoothies and Juice (Part 2)

March 30, 2012

I decided to re-word my focus for the title of the second smoothies/juice post compared to the first one, The Great Debate: Smoothies vs. Juice because I really do want to take the edge off the debate aspect of this topic. Smoothies and Juice 1. They’re two different things 2. They really shouldn’t be pitted [...]

Great Debate: Smoothies vs. Juice

March 28, 2012

The debate over whether smoothies or fresh unpasteurized juice is better will never go away—and there are people who feel very passionately one way or the other. I find this interesting, and I also think the debate is much like most nutrition debates. The “right answer” is that neither is better or worse than the [...]

A Heavy Metal Magnet Condiment and A Gunk Magnet Facial

January 6, 2011

Thanks for your interest in the cilantro pesto! ┬áThat stuff is great—but it is definitely more bitter than basil pesto. I’ll share the recipe with you below. I also want to tell you about a super cleansing mud mask (don’t worry, it does not involve cilantro pesto!). First, why cilantro? It’s a GREAT detoxifier, and [...]

Renewed Interest – Drinkin’ my Energy

December 7, 2010

My wellness habits occur in cycles. I don’t do this on purpose, but I tend to stick to something for a while, and then move onto something else. One thing that keeps coming up over and over is green juice. My weekend of juices in NYC (not all green) made me crave more when I [...]

Coconut Kefir

May 26, 2010

I’ve been reading a lot about bacteria balance within the body. Riveting, no…Useful, YES! Donna Gates, of the Body Ecology Diet, promotes the consumption of fermented foods to help the body digest and the immune system to work well. My first experiment with fermented foods (making them myself, that is) was the Almond Cheese. And [...]

CHEESE made from NUTS

May 20, 2010

The Secret Almond Mission was my newest and (weirdest?) project yet. I turned Almonds into Cheese. The first step was to soak the almonds for 12-24 hours, and then take the skins off. See the result here. The second step was to blend the almonds in the blender with 1 clove of garlic, a few [...]

Weekend Greens

May 8, 2010

This weekend I decided I would focus on ingesting more greens—-smoothies and juice. Right now, I’m not growing any wheatgrass—I have to buy more wheatberries, and to be completely honest, I’m way too busy right now to do anything extra (except I am watching Swiss Family Robinson right now with Matthew and Joey in preparation [...]
