Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

    Ohhh, It broke my heart to see that mango thrown away. I, too have let a mango go past its peak and thrown it away in the past but have recently discovered that if I puree it, add some cinnamon and ground flax seed. That I can make wonderful breakfast crackers in my dehydrator that I can then dip in my favorite nut cheese or carry in my purse for hose times where you are in a rush and there is not the healthiest of choices. A very overripe mango is still healthier than the vast majority of the food available in public venues!

    The main problem with the Vita-Mix is the high speed of the blades, which can produce intense local heating, local to those blades. This is generally not noticed because the mass of the liquid cools down, and disperses, the overheated zones.

    I remember an old Vita-Mix ad that touted “cooking’” soups by letting the motor run until the soup was hot. Thus, deluded “raw fooders” can be unwittingly cooking their food without knowing it.

    The other issue with blenders, especially high speed ones, is beating air into the mix and the attending oxidation that produces.

    An advertising hook of some competitors is slow speed grinding and then pressing the juice out of the mass’ thus, dramatically reducing the overheating and aeration issues.

    Happy Birthday Kevin!

    Hope your birthday is as special as you are! In case you didn’t know you are very special! Don’t change! Love all your wonderful exciting energy. It is so rare to see! I thank you for all that you share. Gratefully yours, TK

  10. Hey Kevin: Here’s one of my fav’s for lemonade.
    Juice of 1/4 lemon, skin and all because you get a lot of essential oil from the skin
    The juice of two of your favorite apples, again skin and all. If you like, you can add just enough pure water to tone down the flavor. I think it’s great, just the way it is. Keep things on an even keal, bud. Just don’t get so busy that you wind up blowing a fuse. I’d like to keep you guys around a long long time. Thank you for all the super cool stuff you do.
