You probably told me this one, Dorothy, because it seems familiar but I made a great soup by blending the tomatoes first with a clove of garlic and then pouring it all in a saucepan and gently heating with chopped vegetables, a box of mushrooms, and fresh basil (forgot the coconut oil).
It’s so nice to have something like a stew or minestrone. So as long as I keep it low until it’s warm, I count that as still raw.
I could eat this every day.

John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com goes on a field trip to South Florida to learn about what Bruce is growing in his standard residential suburban home. He is growing trees and shrubs in the front yard and vegetables and even more trees in the back yard. Learn about growing in grow boxes made out of sterilite storage bins and learn more about moringa.
Growing Food in South Florida – Vegetable Garden in Grow Boxes and Moringa

Yesterday I went to visit my wonderful mother-in-law. She is an herbalist, and literally every space of her land that can be a garden is a garden. Her name is DeAne Wilson, and she has taught me many of the things that I now know about plants.
Several years ago she planted a veggie garden, and for the first two years it was a massive producer. While in recent years she has put more of her energy towards growing herbs, there are still some greens to be found on the hill. I found chard, mustard greens, stinging nettles, and oregano all mixed in with miners lettuce, overgrown grass, and wild flowers.
Vegetable glycerine comes to us through a very complex and sophisticated method of extraction known as Hydrolysis, and the end product that we refer to as “Vegetable Glycerine” is usually the by-product of another oils production. The basics of this system is that the fats and oils of a raw ingredient (usually palm or coconut oils) are split into crude glycerol fats, under the combined action of water, temperature and pressure. These temperatures can exceed 400� degrees and the material is usually kept under pressure for 20-30 minutes. What is actually occurring is a sort of “counter-flow” where the water absorbs glycerol from the fatty acid phase of the oil production. After this phase this glycerol is isolated and further distilled to give buyers a standard 99% Glycerine product.
Vegetable Glycerine is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid with an incredibly sweet taste having the consistency of thick syrup. It is used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. Because it is soluble in both, water and alcohol, its versatility is a major benefactor in its purported growth and popularity within the manufacturing sector. It is invaluable as a natural source ingredient with emollient like properties which can soften and soothe the skin and it assists the outer epidermis is retaining moisture. This helps to explain why it is one of the most popular cosmetic additives used today.
Other uses include its solvency action which aides herbalists in extracting botanical properties from plant materials without the use of alcohol. This is especially helpful for those with alcohol sensitivities as most liquid herbal extracts contain alcohol. But given its severely limited shelf life, extracts made from Vegetable Glycerine typically have a shelf life of 14-24 months whereas alcohol extracts can have an extended shelf life of 4-6 years.
If you have clicked on this section first, I suggest you also read the fruit juicing section later, about why you should juice. The reasons for vegetable juicing and fruit juicing are the same, but vegetables have something much more important that fruits do not have—chlorophyll.
What is chlorophyll?
When you hear the word “chlorophyll“, you may vaguely remember this word from Biology in school. To some of you, the word may mean almost nothing, other than the green thing in plants.
Yes, it is “the green thing” in plants, the phytochemical that makes plants green. But, it is also a very important proteinous compound that acts as our internal healer, cleanser, antiseptic, cell stimulator, rejuvenator and red blood cell builder, just as it is the “lifeblood” of the plant.
Chlorophyll is a green photosynthetic pigment found in abundance in leaves of plants (vegetables). It absorbs sunlight and changes it into chemical energy for the plant.
Researches have reported that the chlorophyll molecule is remarkably similar to hemoglobin in human blood, the substance that carries oxygen in our body. Except that our hemoglobin has an iron element in the center of the structure and chlorophyll has a magnesium element (see picture below). Experiments have shown that our body is able to convert chlorophyll into hemoglobin, thereby enriching the blood.
The health benefits of chlorophyll
The power of sunshine in chlorophyll is wonderfully cleansing in the body. The greener the leaves, the more concentrated the amount of chlorophyll.
The reported health benefits from chlorophyll consumption are just too many. Taken consistently in sufficient amounts, here are some of the powerful remedial effects of this amazing substance:
Other important ingredients in green juices
Besides chlorophyll, green vegetables also contain other equally amazing substances that work together in synergy, to heal. Only nature has a way of putting groups of nutrients together that complement each other and when consumed, worked synergistically to repair, to cleanse and to heal.
This is why it is so important that you ensure that your healing foods intake outweigh the amount of harmful foods. Only when this happens, your body can start to heal and you will begin to feel rejuvenated.
But because there is only so much vegetables that we can eat in a day, we need to juice them so that we consume ample amount for our body’s use, and in repair and healing. Also read about why we should juice.
Only nature has a way of putting groups of
nutrients together that complement each other,
and when consumed, worked synergistically
to repair, to cleanse, and to heal.
For example, you will be surprised that when you juice 100g of fresh spinach and 50g of fresh parsley (total of 150g), the green juice would yield much more iron than 300g of beef and more calcium than 300g of milk!
Just imagine the amount of goodness you are consuming from these green juices! Moreover, the nutrients from these juices can be quickly assimilated and absorbed by your cells, not taxing on your digestive system.
On its journey down the digestive tract, it does a quick spring cleaning of your system—it vacuum cleans your blood of fungus, bacteria and undigested food particles that may have escaped digestion.
Don’t we all need such cleansing? And what better way to do the job than with proper fruit/vegetable juicing?

1 green cabbage
1 purple cabbage
1 sweet red onion
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, lemon juice or rejuvelac - optional
Seasonings to taste (garlic, cayenne, herbs, caraway seeds) – optional.
Finely chop cabbage, saving outside leaves. Chop carrots and onion. Place vegetables into a large bowl or crock. Add vinegar and seasonings. Cover with outside cabbage leaves. Place large plate and weight on top. Press down to remove air from Kraut. Leave at room temperature for 3 days or until it is sour enough for your taste. Place in covered glass jar. Refrigerate. It will keep up to 3 weeks. Eat ½ cup a day with meals for great elimination! Another zero fat, healthy bacteria, non-fruit recipe to give you amazing health!
In Ann Wigmore’s video she says don’t bother to add any seasonings, the taste is so good by itself. And she didn’t add the vinegar. It helps the fermentation process, but it doesn’t really need help fermenting.
