Where can I get sprout seeds for sprouting and growing wheatgrass?
You will find these at organic or health food shops – be sure they have not been heat treated.
I want to buy something that can grind flax seeds – I plan to use the ground seeds in baking and smoothies, do you have something suitable?
Our Tribest Personal Blender does a great job of grinding seeds and nuts.
What machine do you recommend for grinding nuts into butters: for example, almond butter?
We would recommend our Green Star Juicer or the Green Star Elite which makes lovely butter using the homogenizing blank (supplied with the machine). The Personal Blender works very also for smaller amounts and if you grind the seeds first. Don’t forget to soak the seeds.
Why Juice? How will it improve my health and wellbeing?
There are many benefits of juicing. The quick assimilation of nutrients from the concentrated fruits and vegetables brings about faster regeneration of the entire body. Raw foods and juices themselves do not heal, but what they do is provide us with concentrated building materials so that our body can restore itself. The first part of restoration will always be the immune system, it will then seek out trouble spots throughout the body and start to restore them.
Juicing will fuel your body with necessary antioxidants and will help to boost energy levels, improve digestion, fight cravings, boost organ health, reduce damage to cells, assist with weight loss and improve your general health and wellbeing.
