All About Rhubarb!

When I was growing up, my family had a large garden in our backyard.  One of the flavors I remember that makes my mouth salivate even now is the taste of my mom’s rhubarb crunch!  Rhubarb, when prepared as a dessert, has a sweet, tangy flavor that makes your taste buds tingle! We had two large rhubarb plants that came up every year that we would use to make wonderful family favorites.  I still see rhubarb at some grocery stores and farmer’s markets, but many people have never tasted it and have no idea what to do with it. It has a beautiful crimson, red stalk and large green leaves. The edible portion is the stalk as the leaves are...

The Protein-Combining Myth

Recently, my daughter received all of her textbooks before heading off to college this fall.  A required class for first year students is Health.  She started reading through the book and was surprised that they said to approach a plant-based diet with ‘caution’ because you had to watch your nutrients very closely.  They also referred to the “importance of combining vegetarian proteins during a meal to get a complete protein.”  The amazing thing is that this book was published in 2015!

A Testimony From PlantPure Challenge Winner Beverly Frans

"Less than a year ago, at the age of 49, I was well into my second year of suffering from angina, shortness of breath, and fatigue. I used the maximum dose of nitroglycerin daily to help with the chest pain, but it didn’t improve my exercise tolerance and I was extremely limited in my day to day activities. A trip to the grocery store would require most of a day to recover from..."
