  • I have been blending a couple of grapefruits, with banana and coconut for a couple of days. It made for the most delicious smoothie. But I would go so far as to peel the rind, the pith, the seeds, and the skin from the individual sections of the gra…
  • I’m not sure if they are raw, though they are green. To my understanding, almonds are only raw if they are still encased in their hull. (If you happen to find any like this, I would love to get one!) Sorry, I don’t know how one would prepare green a…

  • I have been crying inside and out since I saw this yesterday. I could barely sleep, and keep praying to Creation for an answer. It is extremely difficult when you learn of it, to contain your emotions. More than that, it is difficult to share the ne…
  • I made a broccoli soup last night, which was kinda nice. But I feel like I can take deeper breaths today. It’s as though I’ve had a rubberband around my lungs, and today it was cut. I feel fabulous, like my head is clearing from a fog.
