Eighty Percent Raw - The Great Blend Off

The Great Blend Off

I heard back from Kelli at Blendtec. They are sending me one of their blenders so that I can do a side-by-side review of their brand compared to Vitamix. As you probably already know if you’ve been involved in the Raw Food community for even a short time, Vitamix seems to be lauded as the standard in the industry, when it comes to high-speed blenders. Now, I must confess, I got along just fine as a high-raw foodist for over 3 years using my steady-Freddy Oster. But that was long after I had already blown out my first Vitamix.

Sham Rawk Smoothie


This is Chef Adam Graham with a nostalgic smoothie inspired by fond memories from my youth. March is the time of year that the Shamrock Shake makes its appearance on billboards around the country. No longer do I cue up at the Un-Happy Meal trough to stuff my belly with industrial waste (watch the video). That’s not to say that I don’t miss drinking a Shamrock Shake… I do.



This Independence Day, how about celebrating not only the independence of your country, but the independence of you? So often we tend to feel insecure about the future. What will happen to us? Will we get sick? Heaven forbid we get a suspicious lump or bump, or start to feel our thoughts and memories slipping as we get older. These uncomfortable thoughts may become more uncomfortable as we start to reach ages where there is more likelihood of this occurring.
