More Growing Raw Newsletter

April 2010

We've been busy around here harvesting and storing the glut of zucchinis, eggplants, tomatoes, capsicums and bok choy from our polytunnel. I haven't been so busy that I haven't thought of you, of course! I've added more opportunities for you to participate on Growing Raw, and I'm about to ask you which healthy eating habits you most want to learn about and work on next.

I thought it would be fun to read more of your stories. People send me plenty of interesting emails and comments, but here's your chance to share your experiences with a wider audience. If you can answer yes to any of the following, we want to hear from you!

Do you drink green smoothies?

Do you use superfoods?

Are you growing vegetables at home?

Click on the links to share your tips and stories. It's always exciting to hear from other people on the health trail, so please don't be shy.

What Do You Need Next?

If you could create any healthy eating habit you chose, what would it be?

I'm in the process of creating an e-book that will help you, Growing Raw visitors, to build up the healthy eating habits you're after. Many people have written in to say how much they've loved getting into the green smoothie habit, and how easy it's been to get started. But are these habits sticking?

Vote for the healthy eating habit you most want to work on, send me a comment or email me at

Wishing you the very best health,

My selection of herbs and spices were delivered quickly and were of the best quality I have seen. Great service, fantastic products. Fresh organic herbs from a supplier I trust. - Susan S.

Overall, it was a very positive experience.... they treated me in an exemplary manner when I first ordered from them. I got exactly the product I needed/ordered/expected vis-a-vis the sprouting wheatgrass seeds. I would certainly order from them again for anything that specific. - geo442
