Yogourmet Yogurt Maker
This yogurt maker can make a full quart of yogurt at a time. The nice thing about making your own is that it will be fresh, no sugar or chemicals added in. Then you can add your own fruit or honey in, or use it as the main ingredient in homemade salad dressings. Also, goat milk can be used instead of cow's milk for a super healthy yogurt. The fermentation process adds the good bacteria back into the body and helps the immune system. Big companies are jumping on the yogurt/kefir bandwagon, yet it cannot compare to the health benefits of making your own.
Here is good website that gives more information and it also ties it into a good diet from the book: Breaking the Vicious Cycle, Intestinal Health Through Diet by Elaine Gottschall:
Benriner Spiral Vegetable Slicer
Raw foods contain live enzymes that will help the body, since enzymes are necessary in every metabolic process. For raw food advocates, or for those who are just introducing more live raw food into their diet, this spiralizer will make your life easier. It makes vegetable "spaghetti" very quickly. For example, it really does make raw beet "spaghetti" salad tastes great. Otherwise, eating thick sliced raw beet can be an overwheming taste. Sliced thin allows vegetables to absorb simple healthy dressings and make raw foods enjoyable and delicious.
GoGreen Automatic Sprouter
This sprouter allows you to sprout a greater quantity and variety of sprouts than other automatic sprouters. This is a system that grows sprouts hydroponically. (without soil) It comes as a easy to assemble kit, utilizing a water mist system and a timer that can hook up to the washing machine water connection. Then you determine the size and quantity of the plastic trays of sprouts that you want. It does take up some room as the individual trays fit into an approximately 40"long by 16"deep container. But there is no need to rinse sprouts the usual 2 or 3 times a day if sprouted in a jar.
Easy Sprout Sprouter
These are wonderful 1 liter sized containers that will really help to cut down work on sprouting small quantities of beans, seeds and grains. Because of the ingenious design by its inventor Gene Monson, the requirement to rinse 2 to 3 times a day is eliminated. The dual container design allows air flow and retention of moisture at the same time. You can soak the seeds in it, empty the water, put the lid back on and when it is ready, you can store it in the same container since it has enough ventilation and drainage built in.
Wheatgrass Sprouting and Growing: We find that putting 2 cups of winter wheatberries, 1 cup in 1 Easy Sprout container is probably best for less crowding. Depending on the temperature, they will be perfectly sprouted after a day or two. Then they will be ready to pour onto a wheatgrass tray 16"x16".

Lexen Wheatgrass Manual Juicer
This is the best manual wheatgrass juicer out there. For around $45.00, it really is a quality product. It's claim to fame is that it is able to squeeze more juice than most electric juicers for a fraction of the price. Yes, it is manual, but it isn't hard work to turn the handle. It takes up a much smaller footprint on the counter and is very portable. However, it does work better if you have a counter top or table that you can clamp it onto. (Clamp included) We highly recommend it if you are wanting to test the waters in wheatgrass juicing. Unless you are doing large quantities of juice, you may not need to buy another juicer.
If you give them the promo code "Bergonzi" 877myjuicer will even give you $5.00 off. Read the Amazon.com reviews to see what others think about it.

Vitamix Blender 5200
This is a very powerful blender that can play an important role in helping your nutritional health. It is far more capable of grinding up tough fibrous vegetables, releasing the valuable juices within them. Of course, it can easily grind up ice to make frozen type fruit smoothies and it can make hot soups like they advertise. But the reason this blender is mentioned here is that it can be used as an alternate way to juice your fruits and vegetables. For an example, go to the "Recommended Books on Nutrition" page and watch the You Tube video: Make 2 Cups Raw Juice and Clean Juicer in Less than 45 Seconds. There is also a quick video on how to make a delicious sesame milk.
Nut Milk Bag
These are the very fine nylon mesh bags that help to separate the pulp from the juice. You pour the blended vegetables and fruits, or the blended seeds or nuts into the bag. Then you "milk" the pulp until all of the juice is squeezed out. These work very well, clean easily and dry very quickly. They can also be used for sprouting very small seeds. This company makes them in 2 sizes. Get the 12"x12" size if you want it to easily fit over the pitcher of a blender. Amazon sells the smaller sized ones from the same company, about 8"x12".
EarthCalm EMF Protection
It is very important that we protect ourselves from all the increasingly prevalant electromagnetic energies all around us. There is no escaping cell phone towers, wireless and computer radiations. This company makes some very good products that they claim can transmute, rather than to try to shield (which is nearly impossible) these harmful radiations. There is a device that plugs into the electrical socket to protect the home as well as personal protections for the individual. Some people feel just a subtle change, depending on your current sensitivity and overall health. Check out their website testimonials and decide for yourself. We personally feel these products are helpful and valuable. Click on the banner below to view their website.
