I got a message from a reader the other day on Facebook about a Health.com story that made her quite concerned. And rightly so.

The article is titled “27 Mistakes Healthy People Make” and the #2 mistake was that “you always buy organic”.

It starts off by saying “Buying organic is wise for certain foods, such as beef or strawberries, but it doesn’t make much difference for others, like avocados or eggs.”

It alarms me that a website with such a giant readership could mislead people so badly. To say that it doesn’t make much of a difference to buy conventional eggs versus organic eggs is simply preposterous. Read more »

My Tulsi Tea Smoothie for Breakfast

In many of the organic smoothies that I have written about in the past, I have either used hemp seed milk or Brazil nut milk.

For some reason, however, these nuts and seeds haven’t been going down so well lately. Why?

It probably has something to do with all of the green juice that I have been drinking – my body (my blood) appears to have become very alkaline and is rejecting these foods.

So, this morning I made a smoothie with organic tea as the base in order to change things up.

If you’ve never had a smoothie with tea, I strongly suggest it. Not only do you avoid having to make nut milk, but you get the added benefits of consuming tea.

Here is how I made this smoothie. Read more »

First off, to those of you who celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a wonderful day with your family and ate some great food.

Maybe there are many people out who feel the same way, but I just absolutely love putting organic coconut oil on my bread. (When I do this around my father around, he looks at me like I am an alien. For him, it is nothing but butter.)

I have nothing against jelly. In fact, I really like the BioNaturae jellies that come from Italy.  They are spectacular, fresh, and sugar-free.

However, the taste that coconut oil gives to bread is second to none in my book. Read more »

When I go to the supermarket, my absolute favorite place to shop, look, and browse is the vegetable section.

I am captivated by the bright colors, fascinating shapes, and wide variety of flavors from the vast array of these plant-based foods.

Even though I could take many of the beautiful vegetables that catch my eye and throw them into the juicer, I know that they could be put to use in many other ways.

And that is precisely why Veggies for Carnivores is so compelling.

Author, blogger, cook, and world traveler Lora Krulak takes the mystery out of preparing vegetable-based recipes and demonstrates their incredible versatility in the kitchen. Read more »
