I don't think it is wise to mix fruit with vegetables.
They digest at different rates. Probably why you did not feel so well after your smoothie.
Try adding raw SALSA or MINT or GINGER to Your GREEN drinks.


re the swamp juice, you might wanna start using carrots as a base for a range of juices, the sweetness really helps cope with everything else.

Have you put the almond butter ON the bananas? YUM!


For really refreshing juices try these two recipes:
1. 1/2 pineapple, 1 head romaine
2. 1 lemon, 2 apples, 1 head romaine (or other greens)

Lemon really cuts the green taste




there are a lot of easy food choices on some great blogs but try www.goneraw.com for free recipes. There are new ones added every day!


Cindy, you are doing great. If it's any consolation, food sages like Michael Pollan say Americans should be spending more money on food as a percentage of our income. We pay much less than people in other nations - and you get what you pay for.

And your organic produce isn't federally subsidized like other foods are, so try not to think of it as expensive - think of it as not being artificially cheap thanks to the taxes you've already paid to support it.

If no one has turned you on to the recipe site goneraw.com, now's a good time to check it out. It's great when you have something on hand that you don't know what to do with. Rather than playing the home version of 'Iron Chef,' you can type the ingredient into the search box and get a list of raw recipes that use your theme ingredient.

(Do check out the mock cheese sauce recipes with orange or red pepper, cashews, and lemon juice. Raw, cheesy heaven.)
