Kale Mango Strawberries Smoothie

At an Indian market I purchased a case of 18 mangoes. They use a lot of mangoes in their cuisine so it's a perfect place to shop for them. The price was great, $8 for the case.
Today this is my morning smoothie:
2 leaves of kale, stem removed
2 mangoes
4 strawberries
1 date
water to your consistency
drink or eat with spoon....delicious!

Health Book Summaries

I've been meaning to post about Just received
the new summary via email, so it's fresh on my mind.

A great concept developed by Mike Adams of
Natural News and Kevin Gianni of Renegade Health. They do amazing work and service in the health field. is a service where you can review health books for FREE! You get to read quite a few pages and there is an option to purchase the book. You can learn a tremendous amount very quickly by browsing these summaries. What a great service! After registering, a monthly email is sent with a new summary to read. How amazing is that? Kudos to Kevin and Mike!

Taboul "Live"

Kristen's Taboul-"Live" is becoming a favorite of mine. As she writes in her book "Easy Raw Vegan Salads & Dressings", "when I make it, I eat bowl after bowl after bowl of it. Seriously!" I understand it. It is a fantastic salad....parsley, cilantro, carrot, avocado, etc. And yes, it is so easy and it is so delicious.
