Sprouting! SOO easy! SOO cheap!! SOOO good for you!!!!

Day One: Put enough sprouting seeds in a jar just to cover the bottom. Put enough water in the jar to cover the seeds about an inch or two. Place in an area away from direct sunlight. I just put mine on the frig overnight!
Day 2: Rinse the seeds in the am and pm. I have a lid from Whole Foods that is lovely! It has holes in the top that makes it easy to just run water in the top shake it around and rinse then drain. (And it fits wide mouthed mason jars!!)Place a cloth in the bottom of a bowel, for easy drainage. keep away from direct sunlight.

Day 3. Rinse in the am and pm. Here it comes! Day 4: Rinse in the am and pm

Day 5. Almost ready! (rinse in the am and pm)

Ready to eat! AND so good for you! Put them on sandwiches, salads, pizza....anything for an extra "crunch"!!
All those good things for your body packed in a tiny space!!!

Cultured Vegetables

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl:

3 heads of cabbage - shredded
6 carrots - shredded
3 inch of ginger - peeled and chopped
6 cloves of garlic - peeled and chopped

Remove 3 cups of mixture and puree. Add 3 stalks of celery (for natural salt) and 1/2 apple (for natural sugar) and enough water to make think brine.
Dissolve one package of starter culture in 1/4 cup 90 degree water. Let set for 20 min. Add to brine.
Stir into veggies.
Pack mixture down into glass jars. Pack until there is no air left. Fill almost full, but leave about 2 inches of room at the top for veggies to expand.
Roll up several cabbage leaves into a tight "log" and place them on top to fill the remaining 2 in space. Clamp jar closed
Let veggies sit at about 70 degree room temp for at least three days. Refrigerate to slow down fermentation.
These are good for:
1. friendly bacteria helps inner ecosystem
2. Improves digestion
3. increase longevity(help maintain your own enzyme reserve)
4. control cravings
5. ideal for pregnant and nursing women
6. Alkaline and very cleansing

Carrot Juice!

A friend of mine was having trouble with her eyes and started drinking juiced organic carrots a.m. and p.m. Said it really helped her vision! we go!!

No more plastic bags!

Stumbled across these in whole foods. I have started using them for produce instead of those plastic produce bags. love 'em! They are just draw string mesh bags and could be easily made but don't make with "heavy" mesh to add to the weight of the produce!
