So many people are perishing. They are literally perishing for lack of knowledge about vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and NUTRITION!
In America, the land of milk and honey, where we have so much abundance, it is odd that anyone is lacking VITAL food, full of nutrition, especially when it’s readily available to most of us at our local grocery store, or farmer’s market. If you’re a homeowner or have access to any piece of land, you are especially rich – because you CAN grow your own food!
If you’re fighting a dis-ease, nutrition absolutely the best FUEL for your body. Time is of the essence! Do not procrastinate to give your body what it needs. No one wants cancer, chronic or degenerative dis-ease. No one wants to suffer.
The absolute must-have food for your body is 100 percent organic, non-GMO vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. While personally I believe a raw vegan diet is best for exceedingly vibrant health and renewal, even if you gently cook some of your food, the produce section of your market has everything you need to get and maintain a healthy, life-giving, renewing, lifestyle. Yes, even through the winter months!
I want so much for you to understand the supreme importance of nutrition and how it benefits your body. YOU HAVE OPTIONS!
This is a topic I am totally passionate about! I have learned quite a lot about enzyme-rich, nutritionally dense living vegan foods, and how intelligent they are for you, because I used to be hungry all the time, and fat, when I ate processed, nutritionally deficient foods. Fast food, canned, boxed, and overly processed foods never fill you up — thus you eat, and eat, and eat! Often, all of that unstoppable eating, gets us fat, or worse, contributes to chronic dis-ease.
You eat, and eat, and never get proper nutrition. Then you wonder why you feel like crap, sluggish, with no energy, and suffer from type 2 diabetes, inflammation, and so on. How can this be?
To explain it thoroughly, I’d have to take you down the rabbit hole of nutrient deficient SOIL that vegetables and fruits are grown in these days, not to mention all the extra junk added to foods (which, attempts to make processed food taste good, perhaps even aimed at getting you addicted to it). Those additives raise your blood sugar levels and prevents your body from actually producing some of the things the body needs to maintain good health.
That’s all before we get into the conversation about pesticides and herbicides, which are sprayed on produce at the farms, along with hormones and antibiotics given to the animals, and so on. Much of what’s fed to animals is passed to us via dairy products, meat, etc. It’s a bit overwhelming when you think of all the contributing factors in the food chain, which are unhealthy for us and contribute to various dis-eases.
When I think about and analyze all the reasons processed foods hurt us, it propels me to do all I can to educate people. Do you know that white sugar is addictive as heroin? Yep. Interesting huh?
So, would you rather pay the farmer, or the doctor? I’d rather pay the farmer!
Eating healthy may not be as glamorous as laying in a hospital with an IV in your arm (not!), but I’ve got way to much to do than to lay around feeling sick and yucky. Nor do I want to go to any doctor office or hospital. Those can be pretty scary places!
I don’t know about you, but I want to fully LIVE! I want to feel GREAT, vibrant, vital, with lots of energy!
I feel my best when I eat mostly organic whole local produce, nuts and seeds. I do not need dairy. I do not need grains. I do not need animal products every day (actually I only consume one serving of chicken or fish ever other day currently). It is possible to live on a raw vegetable and fruit juice diet, with some raw vegetable salads along with nuts and seeds, soups, or only juicing.
You will probably feel better on the kinds of foods I recommend than you’ve ever felt in your life!
What follows is the diet I’ve been following for several months:
One glass of lemon water or lemon Kombucha upon awakening in the morning
One protein drink (mixed with water)
One or two small fresh veggie salads, the size of which varies – depending upon if it’s an “eating day” or a “non-eating day”
Salad snacks consist mainly of:
- Cucumbers – chopped
- Celery – chopped
- Sweet peppers – chopped
- Onion – chopped
- Raw garlic – sliced
- Zucchini or Squash – chopped
- Mustard or soy-free Veganaise
- Hot sauce
Raw almonds can be used as a snack also.
Mango, banana, pineapple, or berries (organic) for a sweet snack occasionally
Another protein drink (mixed with water)
1 or 2 Suja juices, green juices are best, daily.
Every other day, eat one serving of baked, broiled, or grilled fish or chicken and a salad or green vegetables.
Coconut oil can be taken for nutritional needs as desired.
If hungry before bed, make another protein drink (mixed with water) – typically done on the nights that I do not eat a dinner meal.
This diet eliminates sugar, grains, soy, bad salts, bad oils, and dairy.
In my experience, this is a healthy diet and one that has been promoted by doctors I have conferred with.
Update: Here’s a link to a video that explains a bit more about why I am doing an intermittent fasting type of diet:
