For more than 30 years I have studied the strengths and weaknesses of various nutritional approaches. But I was never satisfied with any type of diet, whether it came from a macrobiotic, ayurvedic, vegan, primordial, metabolic-balance or raw food perspective.
It was only after spending a day weeding my garden did I come up with an interesting idea. My German mother had told me how healthy sting nettles were when made into spinach and soup. She literally lived on them during the war and was remarkably healthy during this stressful time. My thought was to mix them in a mixer together with fruit, which might make them taste better than spinach.
