My new website, LongevityPower.com, for my new company, Longevity Power Inc. has launched, thanks to the unending support of my fans. You have kickstarted my company with pre-sales of Longevity Power’s first signature product, Longevity in a Bottle – 60 of the world’s greatest superfoods and herbs concentrated into the ultimate elixir of health.

I made Longevity in a Bottle as the go-to product for longevity, beauty, and energy, so that you can get the best of the best without having to shop around. When added to your smoothie it makes the smoothie ritual go a heck of a lot faster (e.g. 1 Longevity in a Bottle ingredient rather than 10+ separate ingredients!)

Go to LongevityPower.com, learn about Longevity in a Bottle, and pre-order yourself a bottle today!

Make your dreams come true,

The San Francisco Bay Area needs more accessible drinking springs for the purpose of supreme hydration, vitality, ecology and reconnecting wild soul:

Out of the several neglected roadside springs, the Lagunitas spring seems to be the perfect fit for the first spring we restore. It will become the best and closest drinking spring for the San Francisco Bay Area.

GPS Coordinates:

Filling up at another spring, Fern Creek Fork Spring, on the other side of the mountain. That spring is perfectly sanitary and drinkable BUT not car accessible (about a 30 minute hike).

Lat: 38° 0’44.81″N
Long: 122°42’53.73″W

The spring is located on the west side (uphill side) of Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Samuel P. Taylor State Park, 6 miles west of the Fairfax Community Church (Fairfax, CA).

Here’s a video I did in Janurary 2011 about other neglected springs in the Bay Area:

 

We can do it!

The complete recipe for this crispy, cheezy, wildly superfood-rich snack is available as a guest bog post on the Edible Goddess site HERE: http://ediblegoddess.com/2011/05/kelp-chips-recipe/

Reminiscent of the cream-filed chocolate Cadbury egg – but with a caramel overtone – my superfood-rich, tonic-herb-injected, “non-glycemic” Chocolate Easter Egg will knock your toesocks off! This spring season, stay nostalgic for chocolate while adding in the immune-system modulating tonic herbs while cutting out the sugar.

First, make the cream center:

1/2 cup birch xylitol
1/4 cup tonic herb tea (or spring water)
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon non-gmo soy lecithin powder
1 tablespoon raw cacao butter
1 tablespoon very creamy almond butter
3 pinches kudzu flakes/powder
2 pinches sea salt
2 pinches vanilla bean powder
1 pinch stevia extract powder

Whisk the ingredients together in a pan on simmer (turn the stove top on and off to keep “raw” temperature levels) to melt the ingredients together. Do not overheat. Then pour (and scrape with a silicone spatula) into a blender and blend for 30 seconds to finish homogenizing. Pour into ice cube trays (silicone trays are best) and freeze for 4 – 12 hours until somewhat firm (won’t actually freeze). Meanwhile, make the chocolate coating:

1/2 cup chopped raw cacao paste
2 tablespoons chopped raw cacao butter
1 teaspoon very creamy almond butter
1/2 teaspoon birch xylitol
1 – 2 pinches stevia extract powder
1 – 2 pinches vanilla bean powder
1 pinch sea salt

Place in a small bowl and warm in an oven (or dehydrator) set to 125*F until cacao paste and cacao butter are melted. Spatula into a very well dried blender and blend until creamy. Spatula back into bowl and reheat chocolate in oven (or dehydrator), using a thermometer inserted into the chocolate until it reaches no more than 115*F – 120*F. Keep warm until cream center recipe becomes a cold sticky gel. Pour the chocolate into half-egg molds or ice cube trays, filling each mold about 2/3 to the rim. Then scoop the cream centers out with a spoon, ball up with your fingers and push into the chocolate molds until covered. Let sit in the refrigerator until solidified. Pop out when ready and enjoy a post-Easter treat. Because of the cream center’s water content, keep refrigerated.

Superfoods Song” is a spoof on the “Yacco’s Nations of the World” cartoon which is an adaptation of the Mexican Hat Dance song. I knew there was a positive reason I loved cartoons as a kid…to spoof them as an adult!

I did the singing for the original song. In this remixed version above, Bethanne Wanamaker takes the mic while I remix with wicked beats. The remixed song is available on Bethanne’s YouTube channel: EdibleGoddess (you are invited to SUBSCRIBE).

Enjoy my new video where I show you how I run my easy and complete compost system at home. I go into the paradigm of nurturing living soil and why it is so important for us as humans to engage in the activity of caring for our top soil.

As within, as without. Not only must we carefully and completely nourish the roots of our plants, we must nourish our own roots (our digestive system). As you head out this spring to garden and hike, you’ll want some bliss-inducing, deeply nourishing elixirs to take with you. You can now get both my eBook AND spiral bound hard copy of Superfood Beauty Elixirs for $39.97 (sold previously for $53.97)!

Please enjoy my FUN video of me talking deeply about and tasting my finished raw organic home-made kefirs. I made 6 of them, using many Superfood ingredients.

I hope this video inspires more of the home brewing revolution. The revolution has already begun with the popularity of making your own kombucha at home. Kombucha can be made with many different base ingredients (different sugar sources, different Superfood and herbal amendments.) The kombucha culture is similar to the the kefir culture: they are both symbiotic (mutually beneficial) colonies of beneficial bacteria and friendly fungi.

Kefir is much more versatile than kombucha, as most of the ferments we know of today (dairy kefirs, sauerkraut, sourdough bread) are effectively kefir cultures, although the term kefir often specifically refers to the culture that naturally occurs in fermented quality raw diary. If you have raw milk sitting out for a while, when it goes sour, it is a good thing. Typically, and oh-so-ironically, pasteurized milk will make a bad ferment with unfriendly bacteria when it goes sour.

The entire world is covered in a mist of kefir organisms (friendly bacteria and yeasts). That is why unpasteurized apple juice can turn (ferment) into apple cider vinegar or hard apple cider without the need of inoculating it with kefir or yeast, because the kefir was present on the skin of the apple. Grapes have the organisms on their skin too, perfect for making wine.

However, other unfriendly bacteria and molds exist everywhere also, so to ensure that they do not get a hold of your ferment and make it go off (i.e. blue mold starts growing on your brew), it is a good idea to actually amend your ferment with a kefir starter to help nature alone. Give your ferment a strong immune system with which to begin.

Kefir starters can be purchased on eBay. Search for “Organic Water Kefir Grains.”

To make a kefir (as well as other ferments like sauerkraut, seed yogurt and sourdough bread):

1. Simply start with your base ingredients (coconut water; raw dairies (if you like diary; colostrum is a great choice); vegetables and veggie juices; raw fresh fruit juices; grain and seed mixes) and place them in a sterilized glass jar.

2. Mix in your fresh kefir grains.

3. Top jar with a towel or loose lid and keep at room temperature (the colder it gets the longer the ferment takes) for a day or more.

A typical coconut water kefir takes at least 36 hours to become a fully effervescent low-sugar high-probiotic kefir. Letting the kefir sit out longer will allow it to turn into coconut water vinegar at which time the last bit of sugars get eaten up by the kefir culture to produce more lactic acid. A sauerkraut typically takes a week or so because it is not a complete liquid and the kefir organisms need more time to break down the fibrous walls of the cabbage and other vegetables to eat the sugars within.

Don’t have coconut water? Mix a quart of warm pure water (ideally spring water) with a spoonful of local honey and kefir grains. You will have honey kefir which is just as amazing and full of immunological major nutrients and trace nutrients! As you saw in my video, anything with sugar can become a kefir including all kinds of fresh fruit juices.

To learn more about making your own coconut water kefir and its many soda-tasting variations (“Ginger-Orange Soda Pop,” “Master Clean Kefir,” “Orange Marine Phytoplankton Kefir Slushy Soda,” “Spicy Ginger Ale,” “Vanilla Creme Cider.”) please get yourself a copy of my book Superfood Beauty Elixirs.
