"I'm not too fond of green smoothies myself. I tried them lots of times but have some issues digesting them as well. Not every time, but most of the time. I now put my greens in a juice every afternoon and that feels way better! Fruit smoothies…"
"I totally agree with what Andrea said. To add to it- I would ask when they are consuming the smoothies- first thing in the morning shouldn't be as much of an issue as long as they didn't have a fatty snack at night- like Ben and…"
This might happen, when a person has a clogged up GI track from a SAD diet. It's constipation that makes it hard for the food to pass through the guts quickly and they remain for a little while and decay. It's as if your…"

"I can't help with your question, I'm just curious how you dehydrate? Separate the leaves and dry for how long? I always see deals at the market, but I don't want to buy multiple bunches and end up having them go bad. "
"I used to have Nesco for a while before upgrading to Excalibur, and it worked fine for me too. I gave it to a friend, and she likes it too. I did have the square shape though, I think it has more drying surface, but as far as the machine, they are…"
"Do you use nut milk makers or your blender/juicer? Right now, I'm using my blendtec, but I've been eyeing Soyabella and Soyapower Plus. I know Soyabella can do cold/raw nut milks, not sure on the soyapower one though. My boyfriend is not…"
"Here is a somewhat traditional Hungarian soup based on sourkraut:
Create a base in the blender with onion, tomato, pepper and a handful of cashes with water, then season with salt, marjoram some caraway seed and paprika. If you have smoked…"
About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
I love cooking, but I'm changing my eating habits to avoid family medical history. I'm having fun with all the food prep still, but kind of confused and need help navigating.
