“ Chlorophyll is

liquified solar energy.

Consuming as much

chlorophyll as possible is exactly like

bathing our inner organs in sunlight.”

Foods to Eat Organic,
for sure:

AVOID
The Dirty Dozen
(These 12 have the most pesticides, some of which
not only help cancer along but
mimic estrogen and drive up weight):

GET THESE ONLY AS
ORGANIC :


Peaches
Apples
Sweet Bell Peppers
Celery
Nectarines
Strawberries
Cherries
Pears
Grapes (Imported)
Spinach
Lettuce
Potatoes

12 Least Contaminated:
Onions
Avocado
Sweet Corn (Frozen< I don’t believe this one, if not organic it’s probably GMO)
Pineapples
Mango
Asparagus
Frozen Sweet Peas (but, grow your own, then they are food)
Kiwi Fruit
Bananas
Cabbage
Broccoli
Papaya


Food is for the body.

Meditation and being present is food for the Soul.

New impressions are food for the mind.

Good air and happiness and gratitude is food for the heart, lungs and middle area.

Complicated and aware movement is food for our life, vitality and youthfulness



Love is food for the Universe.


“There are only a few foods that would give you your fat-soluble vitamins.

These are either fish products, including practically all fresh water and salt water foods, milk, cheese and butter (non-pasteurized, if at all possible. my remark,
but what Sally Fallon strongly recommends)

made from cows

that have been on rapidly growing green young grass, particularly butter made in June.”

Weston Price




“Maybe everything

we’ve ever

done

has been for

love.”

Byron Katie






I took in 1999 Katie’s then 14 day school, and staffed later, in her 9 day school.



Food Consultations include inner critic work, the work of Byron Katie, humor, smart fitness and a lot of fun


This is you, discovering how to be an even more wonderful you.

Okay, let’s get some more information out and about:


The seminal book, by Weston Price, a dentist looking for those with incredibly healthy teeth in the 1930’s (1% cavities, like one per 3 people), and found along with that: no cancer, no heart attacks, no diabetes:







The cookbook and popularized version of this is in this amazing book, the most important if you aren’t going totally raw,( or second most, since you need green smoothies even more if you eat cooked food)

and pretty important even if you are:







Recommended from this book:

Eat high quality fats.

No sugar, or white carbs

No flour, no grains without soaking first, no soy unless fermented, no dairy unless raw

I.e. no bread, pasta, pizza with pasteurized cheese plus the flour crust

At least some raw animal protein

Raw butter and cod liver oil


Good links are:

The Weston Price Foundation
























And the PRICE POTTENGER NUTRITIONAL FOUNDATION


here is a list of the characteristics of the
“primitive diets” that Weston Price

discovered:

  1. 1.The diets of healthy primitive and non-industrialized peoples contain no
    refined or denatured foods such as
    refined sugar or corn syrup;
    white flour;
    canned foods;
    pasteurized, homogenized, skim or low-fat milk;
    refined or hydrogenated vegetable oils; protein powders;
    artificial vitamins or toxic additives and colorings.

2.All traditional cultures consume some sort of animal protein and fat from fish and other seafood; water and land fowl; land animals; eggs; milk and milk products; reptiles; and insects.

3.Primitive diets contain at least four times the calcium and other minerals and TEN times the fat soluble vitamins from animal fats (vitamin A, vitamin D and the Price Factor--now believed to be vitamin K2) as the average American diet.

4.In all traditional cultures, some animal products are eaten raw.

5.Primitive and traditional diets have a high food-enzyme content from raw dairy products, raw meat and fish; raw honey; tropical fruits; cold-pressed oils; wine and unpasteurized beer; and naturally preserved, lacto-fermented vegetables, fruits, beverages, meats and condiments.

6.Seeds, grains and nuts are soaked, sprouted, fermented or naturally leavened in order to neutralize naturally occurring anti-nutrients in these foods, such as phytic acid, enzyme inhibitors, tannins and complex carbohydrates.

7.Total fat content of traditional diets varies from 30% to 80% but only about 4% of calories come from polyunsaturated oils naturally occurring in grains, pulses, nuts, fish, animal fats and vegetables.
The balance of fat calories is in the form of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.

8.Traditional diets contain nearly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids.

9.All primitive diets contain some salt.

10.Traditional cultures consume animal bones, usually in the form of gelatin-rich bone broths.

  1. 11.Traditional cultures make provisions for the health of future generations

    by providing special nutrient-rich foods for parents-to-be, pregnant women and
    growing children;

    by proper spacing of children;

    and by teaching the principles of right diet to the young

If you have special needs children, normal children, or a body you don’t want to go the way of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, some of these ideas might be useful:


One:

EAT FOOD
(
not processed nonsense)


Two:

YOU ARE WHAT

YOU EAT

ATE


2a:

Vegetables

ORGANIC (organic spinach has 80 times more iron than inorganic) or Wild: They ate real soil,

not chemicalized dirt

Note: chimpanzee diet is almost half greens












2b:

Eat meat that has been raised as that species was meant to live:

cows and buffalo on grass,

chickens on pasture and bugs and a bit of  grains (non GMO),

fish in the wild sea.

GRASS FED

WILD SALMON


(Industrial meat is almost a cancer bomb; meat on pasture is an Omega-3 pill)



Three:

Green SMOOTHIES: fruits, stevia (green), greens in a blender or vita mix, tons of ideas online












Four:

LOCAVORE
(
i.e strawberries, once a year; apples, too; maybe go for a couple of months with no fruit in the winter)

(p.s., this is hard in Texas, though squash and melons keep going all summer)


Five:

Lots of RAW & FERMENTED raw

foods



Six:

EAT SOME ANIMAL PRODUCTS-- HIGH QUALITY ONLY

Don’t be a vegan:

As little as 2% animal protein works for some blood types or inclinations:

That’s each day
a sardine or egg yolk (preferably raw) or egg size of yogurt/ cheese/ keffir)

Eggs from chickens who are not only organic, but better, out on pasture, eating green grass and bugs)


Seven:

Avoid sugar, flour, or dairy unless the dairy is raw.
Avoid soy unless fermented (miso, tempeh, nato)


Eight:

Eat according to heritage and BLOOD TYPE if that appeals to you















Nine:

HIGH QUALITY FAT:

Butter (raw better, orgamic,  spring butter good, grass fed cows, yum)

Olive oil

Coconut Oil

Macadamia Nut Oil

(not canola, soy, safflower, corn oils)

Avocados
Seeds & Nuts



Ten:

SOAK GRAINS AND SEEDS AND NUTS

ahead of using;



Ten & a half:

SKIP ALL FLOUR;

many say no grains at all, they just entered the human diet 

10,000 years ago

(Who eats mainly

grains?
Small birds & small mammals!

(Bigger birds and mammals (robin, squirrel) add worms and nuts;
still bigger (fox, owl) add mice;
still bigger add salmon, like the eagle and the bear).

Anyway, the little birds and mammals do all grain and have

Lots of energy that requires

very busy huge metabolisms;

so if you want to huff and puff

all day, grains mights be your thing.

Otherwise, try a couple of weeks without grains and see what happens)


Eleven:

Various FOOD COMBINING

suggestions:

salad plus protein

&

salad plus grains


but do not combine grains plus protein

(don’t panic, these

are

SUGGESTIONS

not commandments)



Twelve:

NATURAL SWEETENING:
Stevia ( whole leaf form is very different than the white stuff, or drops, and still some hate it)

Carrots

Beets

Honey ( maybe small amounts at first)


Fruit (maybe low glycemic for awhile: lemons, blueberries, grapefruit)


Agave ( or maybe not, it’s getting worse and worse reports)


Thirteen:

Consider the

GAPS diet

(Gut and Psychology Syndrome) or the

BODY ECOLOGY diet

as your over- all plan for a year or two.

Watch this video, if you wish: (go to bottom of the page that opens)





Fourteen:

CHILL

BE PRESENT

EAT SLOWER

Smile and follow

breathing

when eating / chew food / talk nice to self and others




14.1:

Slow down &

BE PRESENT

when

eating

and

preparing food




14.2

Listen to your 

body,

Love your body,

Do the Work of Byron Katie about any “body” issues

Forgiveness means no dis-ease hanging around to dis-ease you.




14.3:

Love your food and yourself

    For the mind: new and beautiful impressions, Minimize “news” and “mindnumb” impressions”

    Real thinking and delight in mentally trying out options
