Many of you have recently jumped on the Green Smoothie bandwagon with me...well guess what I found a great new item to enhance your smoothies!!! Matilda's Kitchen makes some fantastic blend that will add both flavor and nutrition... take the Flax and Company Coconut for example: INGREDIENTS: ground flax seeds, ground sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, unsweetened unsulphured coconut, ground almonds, ground pumpkin seeds.
Again, I was inspired by this company not only for producing a great healthy product, but because of her attitude towards life and giving. After reading her story, I wanted to give you a little more insight on why this is yet another fantastic company...the people behind the current make such a difference. So here is a short interview with Matilda!
What did you learn from juicing and how would you recommend someone start?
Juicing gives your body high density nutrients so therefore builds up your immune system. I mainly juice carrots, celery, cucumber and kale but actually most veggies juice are wonderful. When I was in an acute stage of illness I used to drink about 4-6 glasses of fresh juice a day.
If you are just starting to juice you could start with the following recipe:
1 stick celery
1/2 cucumber (peeled)
2-3 leaves of kale (high in calcium)
-You could also add an apple if you like but I prefer not to add fruit to my vegetable juice.
Is your son still involved in the business?
Our son Beau is now 22 and has moved back to Australia. He works for an organization called Youth With A Mission. He has been working in third world countries, helping doctors in small villages, works in schools, helps build housing. -- SERIOUSLY aren't you inspired by this woman's family!!
And do you have any plans to expand your line?
I will be bring out a Flax, Hemp & Chia flavor and I am considering bringing a line of Flax & Co Protein Bars.
If you could give people 1 piece of advice for a healthy happy life what would it be?
For me a happy healthy life means a balance between your physical, emotional and spiritual life. When any of these areas get out of balance we suffer the consequences.I will be using these yummy concoctions in my smoothies this week and letting you know what I think of each one...dude I'm ready to go make one right now!!
