How To Get The Kids On Board with JUICING!
We have raised two boys, who are now in their late 20?s. One of our children was so finicky, he would gag at the thought of eating cooked vegetables, or even if certain foods were touching other foods on the plate. This went on for years and years.
It was incredibly frustrating for us, but through ingenuity and patience, we have found a solution for even the finickiest of eaters!

Digestion is the #1 Key to Superior Health!
Drawing on over 40 years experience in juicing, living and natural foods, in 2006 Linda Kordich helped to write and produce the “Live Foods, Live Bodies” program with her husband ‘Juice Daddy’ Jay Kordich. She now accompanies Jay around the world teaching, inspiring and motivating people to eat more living foods. You’ll love this personal insight into how Linda came to know the incredible power of juicing as an aid to digestion. According to Jay and Linda, effective digestion is the #1 key to obtaining superior health.
Here’s her story…
For many decades, I have had the privilege to be married to Jay Kordich, the Father of Juicing. Yet, prior to me meeting Jay, I had come from a family of Vegetarians and big juicing advocates. Ever since I was a child, I could hear the roar of that juicer running every afternoon after I came home from school. I am grateful to my mother for doing this for me. It changed my life forever, and I had no idea at the time, that juicing would play such a pivotal role in my life. Carrot/apple/celery was always on the menu, and even at the age of 11 or so, I felt it was one of the only real things my mother did for me that made me feel special.

I’ll say it at the top: the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead gets “two thumbs up” from me. Watch it and be amazed. The movie chronicles the juice fast journeys of three people: the filmmaker Joe Cross, Siong Norte, and the you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it Phil Staples.

A shot of wheatgrass seemed so… sexy?, alternative?, healthy?, gross?.
I’d heard for years about people in big cities with juice bars drinking wheatgrass shots as if it was the finest breakfast tequila, but I had no idea just exactly what wheatgrass could be.
Then we moved to a slightly more metropolitan area and I actually saw wheatgrass for sale in my local organic grocer so I bought a little 4 inch square pot for $4.00, then realized I didn’t have an appropriate juicer. It didn’t matter anyway because my cat proceeded to help herself to the entire little square and I discovered it too near her litter box to reclaim.
I should have realized at that point that it was exactly the same stuff I bought, called Cat Grass at my local pet store, but we’ll get to my realizations about what wheatgrass is a little later. I needed a new juicer anyway, so I bought a sleek little Omega 8005 and vowed to figure out this wheatgrass stuff. Read more »
