Sunshine! AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
Since the dark went away, I know there had to be sun behind all those clouds. It hasn’t peeked its face through all day today, though. This morning, there was a thick fog. I was able to make out the house situated north/northwest of my house. This is how it looked at 8:45. By noon, the fog had lifted but ...
Why I Get into Nature Every Day! Green Smoothie Blog
“I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out until sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”- John Muir One day after work last week, I bundled my body in the warmest winter gear on hand to head into the wilderness for a walk. With the wind chill, the temperature was below zero. ...
Are Grains Really Healthy to Eat? The Renegade Health Show
Should you eat grains? The debate rages on in the diet community, and many people are still confused about the role of grains in the human diet. The Paleo folks say you should avoid grains because we’ve only been cultivating them for what, like 10,000 years? Raw food people say to avoid grains because, well… grains have to be cooked! ...
Brown Rice, Quinoa And Wild Rice
The worst business decision I ever made? Tera Warner
Have Your Resolutions Fizzled Already? When January 1st comes, the will power, commitment and determination of people always fires up a few notches. A new beginning and the prospect of a second (or sometimes 102nd) chance is enough to restore hope, lift spirits, strengthen resolve and inspire a few “resolutions” for better living. Then, a few weeks later, habits move ...
Simple Carrot Soup Marisa's Kitchen
Last week we had a wonderful afternoon at Stone Barns. I guess winter keeps away most of the crowds so we basically had the place to ourselves. We got to feed the chickens (greens and lettuce!), see the sheep, ducks and beautiful greenhouses. Then we went to cafe and ate a great lunch! We had the Carrot Soup (every time ...

Mostly Cloudy AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
When I woke, it was to clouds. Not unusual, by any means. Then it cleared off enough for the sun to break through. It was glorious—while it lasted. By the time DD called at almost 3 o’clock, the clouds had moved back in again. Her weather sounded so much better than here! I got jealous! A few minutes ago, I ...

I Got Slow Cookers Coming Out The Wazoo – I Have My Reasons Kristen's Raw
My slow cooker collection. I wouldn’t have felt compelled to share my slow cooker collection with the world except that the last two people who came to our home exclaimed, “Wow why do you have so many slow cookers?” Doesn’t everybody? Just kidding. I know most people don’t have a stash of slow cookers. I asked Kamea the other day, ...

Genetic programming for the Brave New Utopia Farm Wars
The truth is, thousands and thousands of genetic experiments will continue to be performed, in the dark, based on a very small amount of knowledge. The grotesque results will be cast aside as unfortunate casualties in the march toward The New World. DNA isn’t the key to “a better human.” Individual freedom and power are, and they launch a process ...
Homebody AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
The weather report wasn’t too encouraging. I’d promised Cuz I would feed the critters first thing yesterday morning but I didn’t want to. When I woke, it was well after 8. At that time now, it should be broad open daylight but the day had dawned dark and dismal. This is either before or right after I took care of ...
