here’s some green

St. Paddy day is but days away and who hasn’t seen those little  leprechauns lurking about.  Pay attention now, what an innovative way to get kids to eat their peas.    It’s green time and not just for good health  but savings if you raise some of your own food,  well some.

Sunday evening I attended the Transition Palm Beach meeting right here in Lake Worth Beach at Nina Raw Chef Kauder’s home.  It’s not just healthy for kids but how about for those to adults with health problems.  I was among friends who juice and know   DSCN3911if you juice celery (I do not like celery) you can lower your blood pressure without meds.   There was so much information.  Nina was trained at CIA and her niche is Raw  Vegan.   Who knew greens are so good for you.  Everything in her home had an artistic touch.  Nothing so mundane as glass, or concrete counter tops.  everything was designed for her specific needs.     I was taken with the drawer that went in and out on both sides no wasted middle space. (think see-saw) We were  introduced to this tool from Brazil that cores Cocoanuts much safer than a machete.DSCN3897

The evening started with a garden tour of raised beds of mixed vegetables.  so at her house it truly is from garden to table. DSCN3885 It seemed effortless.  she was roasting veggies in this small oven she built herself and to be sustainable she uses what we all have plenty of dried palm fronds for fuel.DSCN3882   She showed  us how to juice and not waste anything, now that was powerful.   What would you think if you did not have to buy chips and you like

 munchies.  Marinated kale twigs and sliced lemon peels put into the dehydrator.

The common lament of juicing has always been the clean up, she had that covered.  To get hold of her, well, she  teaches up in Jupiter down in Boca and just need to give her a ring and check her schedule.
