Recipe Collection: Electrolyte Drink (Sports Drink Replacement)

By | May 16, 2013

This is a recipe for electrolyte drink that I posted quite awhile back, in the middle of another post.  It’s hard for people to find, yet so commonly requested!  I decided it needs its own post. Gatorade and other “sports drinks” are not so healthy at all.  They contain artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and other Read More

Recipe Collection: Apple-Carrot Juice

By | January 27, 2011

Image by Flavio@Flickr This recipe really could not be simpler, but it is so healthy.  Carrot juice is great for detox, and apple makes it taste good.  We use it as the base for smoothies in the morning, since fresh-squeezed juice is so much healthier than pasteurized, store-bought stuff.  The kids will also drink it Read More

Kombucha: Brewing Tips and Hints

By | October 2, 2010

When I first wrote about Kombucha, I had only just started brewing it.  I had been drinking it for a few months and was so intrigued with it that I just couldn’t wait to share!  Of course, telling all of you how to brew it when I’d only made a couple of batches is basically the blind leading the blind…not the best idea, right?
