Happy Fall !!!

Many people ask about using our Cashew Cheez in recipes. I recommend eating it raw since it is a raw food item. But I've promised to post the Vegan recipe I use for Mac and Cheese and other recipes. It is on my website at
Check it out. If you try it comment on what you think and how you use it.

A common question I get about our Cashew Cheez is if I use it in recipes. Our Cashew Cheez is primarily a raw food product so because of that I eat it raw on chips, crackers, crudites or wraps. It makes a great romaine leaf lettuce wrap with shredded carrots, sprouts….. If you are looking for a Vega...

Are you a garlic lover? Either you can’t imagine buying a container of pre-minced garlic or maybe you did and realized it just isn’t the same as fresh. When I cook with garlic I want the whole house to smell like it and the food to be impacted by it. I just don’t get that with prepared varieties, re…

I wanted to share the importance of not juicing fruit or drinking fruit juices. Because of the sugar load in fruit juices, 21-40 g. per 8 oz. serving, I recommend that you EAT your fruit. By eating it with the fiber it slows down the sugar load on your body. Stick to juicing vegetables and only use a small amount of fruit if needed for taste.~To your Health!

It conveniently cleans the mixing rod upon removal from the jar. These features will help you enjoy your experi…

I received a question today from a mom of 4 about cow's milk. To help you understand why I do not recommend cow's milk, yogurt or butter, I'm providing a link to a comprehensive article below.

Cow's milk is one of the easiest foods to replace with healthy alternatives: Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, or Rice Milk. (I don't recommend Soy Milk because of the genetic modification of soy beans as well as the fact that soy messes with your hormones.) Enjoy the article!…/why-cow-milk-is-so-dangerous/
