I just juiced a whole red cabbage, straight, and it was so good!

My sister actually has reactions to "yeast extract" which is added to things like Annie's products. It's a variation on MSG, but not as chemically processed, I guess. Like a precursor to MSG.

I read recently that it's a common stage for six yr olds to go through - to steal. It'll be done by 7, generally. Just because your child 'knows better' now, doesn't mean she'll still know better in...

We eat dessert pretty often, but it's generally a serving of fresh fruit after a meal. Ice cream and cake are on birthdays only.

I like: 1 banana, 1 head kale (main ribs removed), and something acidic - pineapple or orange juice. Love it. I don't do well with spinach, but we all love kale smoothies here.
