You are what you eat – for real

You can have too much of a good thing

16 Jun

Sometimes I get frustrated with all the conflicting information about foods that are good for you and yet sometimes they carry side effects. It makes me want to jump on the band waggon of Eat Right for Your Blood Type because these are exactly the foods that it has listed that are not beneficial for my particular blood type – Soy, chickpeas, sesame, sunflower seeds and some other types of peas.
I know that leaving my health to doctors is not an option for me and I am a strong believe that the best medicine for me comes on my plate. I just have to figure out which are the best ones for me. I do not believe in eliminating any food completely except Monsanto’s brands but I believe in eating in moderation and eating the foods that are most beneficial according to the most recent scientific findings. I cannot give up by being too overwhelmed with information. My health is my greatest asset and it is worth the trouble.

Ever since I was a child, my mom always told me that have a good breakfast and you’re good for the rest of the day. I have proven this to be true.

In celebration of Earth Day this past weekend, I’m going to challenge you to experiment with some new green foods. If you’re not already eating at least a few of these items on a regular basis, this is your chance to “green” your diet and try some of the best foods nature has to offer.

Here are my 10 favourite ways to eat more greens.

1. Cruciferous greens (kale, collards, Swiss chard)
These “super” veggies are at the top of list because they have no other job than to improve you health. They are loaded with fibre, calcium, magnesium and chlorophyll. The simplest way to enjoy these leafy veggies is to steam them, sauté them or add them raw into juices, smoothies and soups. Try a new leafy vegetable each week and then rotate them on a regular basis.

2. Fresh green herbs (dill, parsley, basil)
Fresh herbs in the spring and summer will lift up your meals and give them a boost, not only in flavour but nutritionally as well. I always try to put parsley into my green juices, salads or chopped on whole grains. Fresh herbs like dill are a wonderful accent to dips and soups. And use basil to make pesto – nothing beats the taste of it homemade!

3. Living greens (mung beans, broccoli and sunflower sprouts)
Sprouts are nutritional powerhouses loaded with enzymes, protein and fibre. They’re a living food, so will add a unique burst of freshness to your meal. Toss them in to salads, sandwiches or even alongside cooked grains, stir-fries and soups.

4. Spicy greens (arugula and mustards)
The spicy greens have a peppery and nutty flavour. They contain a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin K and vitamin A. They’re also a rich source of calcium. They will certainly add a zesty kick to your meal and help with digestion. Try adding them into your next salad or side dish.

God’s pharmacy – Amazing

11 Sep

This came in my email and I had to share it with you!

 It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and  fish… All before making a human. He made and  provided what we’d need before we were born. These  are best & more powerful when eaten raw.   We’re such slow  learners…

God left us a great clue as to what foods  help what part of our  body!

God’s Pharmacy!  Amazing!

A  sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The  pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… And YES, science now shows carrots  greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the  eyes.

A  Tomato has four chambers and is red. The  heart has four chambers and is red. All of the res  earch shows tomatoes  are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart  and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound  heart and blood vitalizing food.

A  Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums.  Even the wrinkles or folds on  the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen  neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak.  These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocadoes,  Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents c ervical cancers. And how profound is this?  It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
