You are what you eat.

Hand picked greens
Hand picked greens

By Glen Swartwout

Why not build your lunch out of the ingredients a healthy body is made of?

Let's build the perfect lunch. What ingredients are essential? How can we include them with ease... and a little panache?

And besides being perfectly beautiful and perfectly satisfying, let's make sure it is perfectly health inducing!

Prep time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 2


  • Active Enzymes:
  • Live food (raw or fermented - sorry, that martini is fermented but it doesn't count!) like a fresh green goddess goat yogurt and grape seed oil dressing
  • Greens with Fiber:
  • Dark Green Leafy vegetable matter like baby Kale and Collard greens
  • Essential Fatty Acids and Phytosterols (beneficial plant fats):
  • Soaked or sprouted seeds (NO alfalfa sprouts; sprouted hemp seeds would be ideal, so talk to your legislator over and about lunch...)
  • Trace Minerals:
  • A dash of Flower of the Ocean sea salt


  1. Put on something comfortable (like hemp clothing) and classical (like music).
  2. Blend fresh ingredients for salad dressing, like 1/2 cup whole milk goat yogurt, 2 Tablespoons Grape Seed Oil and a pinch of Flower of the Ocean sun dried sea salt.
  3. Make an artistically layered bed of baby greens like collard greens, topped with a layer of baby kale.
  4. Place a mound of sprouts, like organic hemp sprouts (as soon as it is safe to do so) in the centre.
  5. Drizzle the entire plate with copious amounts of your Green Goddess goodness.
  6. Serve.
  7. Admire.
  8. Salivate.
  9. Eat. Technically that means savour and chew each mouthful about 40 times, while you enjoy the good company and the background music.

The body is mostly water. Make it the best life-giving water you can!

Air Water Life Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0 | Water Ionizer | Alkaline Water Filtration System | Produces pH 4.5-11.0 Alkaline Water | Up to -800mV ORP | 4000 Liters Per Filter | 7 Water Settings

Avoid drinking with your meal... unless it is ionized water. The smaller water clusters actually aid digestion, penetrating into foods and body tissues ten times better than other filtered water.
