This is just a "grab and go" place!

Well - over Spring Break - I gutted the kitchen and tried to make everything a little more efficient. It kinda looks like we have a little store now doesn't it. Whoa.

Having the food out on display like this helps everyone in the family to
grab a better choice when they are feeling a little hungry.

I was able to find a lot of great sales and plan on freezing the tons of bananas you see
so we can make banana shakes in the summer! (just waiting for them to get browner)


I was able to find a produce store that would sell me the young coconuts for
$9.50 a case - there are 9 coconuts - this lasts us only a week.


So - come on over and help yourself to some great food. ....and have a super day!

Hey ma,
What do you use the coconuts for so regularly? I'm not incredibly fond of the taste yet but I DO want the health benefits. Do you eat them by themselves or put them in shakes or what?

Hi Jenny - We use the coconut water and pulp every day in our green drink in the morning. Coconut is known as a 'wonder-food' and it is a near perfect diet, as it contains almost all the essential nutrients needed by the human body. The coconut is highly nourishing and a protein food and contains all the amino acids. It has the right fat that is more easily utilized by the body than all other fats. Remember - Rachel's kids eat their own coconut almost every day and drink the water from it. I am glad that I found a produce place that sells me them for only $l.15 each - I was paying over $2 before.
Glad you asked! Maw

I want to see what your kitchen looked like before. You are amazing. If you look up Ann Wigmore she actually had a house plan for a raw food kitchen. It was pretty cool. Love ya, you are too neat. Rach

Wow, Your inspiring!!

With all this produce, do you have a good source for organic & non certified safer produce?

Our co op group in SL county is looking for healthier and more affordable produce options in bulk. One of us (we rotate) even travels to Utah county weekly to pick up raw cow and goat milk for the group.

If you feel like you want to share your health improvements, it would be nice to have some details.

Thanks for your time if you have any suggestions, Camille
