Steve Meyerowitz was christened "Sproutman" in the 1970s in a feature article in Vegetarian Times because his New York City apartment was always filled with gardens of mini-vegetables. They were part of his lifetime fight against chronic allergies and asthma. After 20 years of disappointment with orthodox medicine, he became symptom-free through his use of diet, juices, and fasting. In 1980, he founded "The Sprout House", a "no-cooking" school in New York City teaching the benefits of a living foods diet.
Steve is a health crusader and author of 10 books including Power Juices Super Drinks, Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, Juice Fasting and Detoxification, and Food Combining and Digestion. His most recent book is "The Organic Food Guide: How to Shop Smarter and Eat Healthier." He has been featured on PBS, the Home Shopping Network, TV Food Network, and in Better Nutrition, Prevention, Organic Gardening and Flower & Garden Magazines. His sprouting inventions, such as the "Hemp Sprout Bag" are sold nationwide.

If you have never fasted before, it’s easier than you think. And you’ll be amazed at how nourished and energized you will feel. We’ll organize a generous diet of juices and other drinks to consume during your fasting week. Every day of fasting adds days to your years and quality to your days.

"The seven day juice fast I participated in under the guidance and educational support of Steve Meyerowitz was life changing for me. I learned to read messages from my body that I had never been in tune with before and I felt better than I had for as long as I could remember. My complexion improved, my eczema cleared up and some joint pain I had been experiencing disappeared. I looked better, felt better, and thought about my relationship to food and my body in ways that have influenced my choices since. It was terrific and something I am committed to doing several times per year."
Thanks Steve! —Eliza Crescentini, CFRE
FOUR WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
Diet is a hard thing to change. Just choosing a new diet is a major decision. We will discuss the criteria for deciding which diet is right for you, but we will spend most of our time exploring and sampling (yum!) some super foods that will immediately invigorate your existing diet. You don’t need to adopt an all raw, or all organic diet, but increasing the percentage of living foods in your diet and making better food choices in general will measurably impact your health and longevity.

Stop throwing food dollars down the drain and start getting more out of what you eat.
Session #4 Which Vitamins? Which Supplements?
Everybody takes them, but which ones do we need? How much? How often? Is there a difference between brands? Isn’t a good diet good enough? We all take them and we spend a lot of money on them. Join us as we address these questions and come up with a strategy for navigating through the vitamin jungle. Learn which are the best supplements for general maintenance and which ones everybody should take.

THE ULTIMATE LOCAL AGRICULTURE
with Steve Meyerowitz, Sproutman®
Food is being delivered from farther and farther away as the global distribution system delivers tomatoes from Holland and cantaloupe from Chile. Agricultural chemicals banned in North America are nevertheless showing up on our dinner plates. Rising oil prices are perpetually raising the price of our long-distance, imported diet.
Steve Meyerowitz, the "Sproutman®" is a health crusader whose passion is to return to the concept, practiced over a hundred years ago, where most families provided their own food. The only transportation involved in this approach is the one from the garden to the dinner table. Says Meyerowitz, "You don't need a peer reviewed study to know that this is the healthiest food in the world." But the problem is: "We live in the Northeast where home gardening is not an option most of the year or we reside in apartments several stories above the city pavement." Meyerowitz' solution: "Kitchen Gardening." -A no-soil approach using baby versions of many common vegetables, grains, and beans. He calls these 'The World's Healthiest Vegetables" because as baby plants, they concentrate their nutrition many times over the mature version of the same vegetable.
Sproutman will demonstrate how you can grow your own victory garden of fresh organic foods and become less dependent on the commercial food network. It's easy. It's delicious. It's healthy. Kids love it. You can literally watch your food grow. His motto is "One week from seed to salad®." Find out how easy it is to grow these amazing living foods and how they can add energy to your days, and years to your life.

ON-THE-JOB JUICE FASTING
Health seekers have long known about the benefits of fasting as a self-sufficient method for the renewal of health and the promotion of healing. Although many people want to try it, few have the know-how or the confidence to go it alone. Fewer still have the luxury to take the time to travel to a Bahamian spa. Now, Sproutman Steve Meyerowitz explains his approach to achieving the benefits of fasting while living and working at home. He also answers many questions that face the faster. Can you, detoxify, heal and lose weight while working and living in a city environment? Who shouldn't fast? What are the benefits of chlorophyll? Can I exercise? Should I take supplements? Herbs? Enemas, Colonics? What should I drink? Will I have enough energy? Should I quit if I get sick while fasting? How will I know when it is the right time to stop?
Juice fasting makes fasting doable for large numbers of people who simply cannot take time off from their regular routine but need to maintain their energy while fasting. Use this powerful self-help tool, safely and intelligently.
BECOME A HEALTHY VEGETARIAN
Smart vegetarianism means more than just not eating meat. Should you go macrobiotic? become a raw foodist? a fruitarian? a health food nut (supplementarian)? a Pritikinist? Should you take protein powders? B-12? vitamins, selenium, SOD, RNA, DNA, BMT? Some of the most nourishing foods on the planet are derived from non-animal sources. But most vegetarians don't know what to eat. Don't be a donut. Make your vegetarian diet fun, easy, interesting, and above all--healthy.
FOOD COMBINING AND COMMON SENSE
Pepto-Bismal is out. Food combining is in. In this age of indigestion, it is oftentimes a question as to what to eat with what else, how, and when. Once learned, proper food combining can leave you with a clear mind about these questions and, better still, a peaceful stomach. Unfortunately, most food combining books have freshman chemistry as a prerequisite and most dinner tables are inappropriately designed for charts, formula books, and diagrams. Nevertheless, mere mortals can learn to combine foods in a way that's practical and convenient. Learn the proper sequence of eating, the laws of quantity, timing, rhythm, and mastication. Find out when and where it's best to eat; discover exercises and herbs that improve digestion. Replace your bad habits with good ones. Good digestion means good health.
