Most of us don’t know what we’d do without our food processor. If you're not there quite yet, you will soon. If you love your food processor as much as I love mine, you will want to take care of it properly so it will last you years to come. Just like any other appliance that we purchase... the more love you give it, the more love it will give back!

Banana-Free Smoothie Options

Members Only, Substitutions - how, with what, and when (7 lessons)

Bananas are popular in smoothies because they help to cover the taste of greens, add a little sweetness, and most of all they create a thick creamy texture. Over the years, I have come to learn that not everyone is a fan of bananas and there are others who are looking for ways to reduce the sugars in their smoothies. Below, I will share some alternative foods that you can use in your smoothies instead of the golden banana.

Taking an extra few minutes to properly clean and care for your kitchen equipment will help extend the life and function of your investments. I could have called this posting "Cleaning Your Juicer" which is really what this post is about but honestly, we first must care about our equipment before we can even properly clean it.

Knives that I Recommend

Members Only, Misc. Equipment - everyday tools (9 lessons)

Knives are a valuable tool to have in the kitchen... a sharp one that is. Some of you may not be aware of this, but a dull knife can cause more harm than a sharp one. When you have to saw back and forth and use downward pressure while cutting, there's a chance for the knife to slip and knick a finger or two.

Are Raw Desserts Healthy for You?

#2 - Successfully Transitioning Your Diet, #3 - Nutrition Basics, Members Only

When it comes to raw desserts, just because a person slaps the words raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, or (amazingly) all of the above to a food doesn't necessarily make it a FREE FOR ALL dessert. Naturally, these taglines come with powerful effects if you add them into your life but we must do so in moderation. First and foremost we need to learn how to pay attention to our own bodies (not just our taste buds) and feed it accordingly.
