Super Foods for Super Health and Vitality

Super Foods seem to be the big rage these days. It seems that many nutritionists and other natural health practitioners are talking about super foods. The issue I see is that all these super foods being promoted are vegan. Some vegan foods are super healthy, but from the research I have done, the best diet for most people includes animal proteins and animal fats. 

These vegan super foods are healthy, but one can not live on them and they are lacking or are deficient in several vitamins and minerals found only in animal foods such as Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12, Iron and Zinc. 

The vegan super foods most talked about are spirulina, chlorella, turmeric, raw cocoa, wheat grass, beets, lemons, apple cider vinegar, moringa leaf, matcha green tea and maca. As I stated above, these foods are wonderful and healthy, but for most of us, we need a mixture of super foods from plants and animals. 

Chlorella is a top notch super food. Follow this link to read a wonderful article about Chlorella, written by Kate Forsyth. Super Chlorella! 

Some of my favorite super foods that will give your body and mind the key nutrients to be full of energy and vitality include the following: grass fed red meat, pastured eggs, wild fish, oysters, raw honey, avocados, cod liver oil, fresh vegetable juice, raw butter, raw olive oil, bone broth, and berries. All these foods need to be organic, hormone free, GMO free and pastured raised to ensure that you are obtaining the best and most nutritious foods available. 

Start off with eating more pastured eggs and making fresh vegetable juice. Later, incorporate some wild fish and grass fed red meat. Eat one tablespoon of local raw honey every day. Make some bone broth and find a source of raw butter. Make my favorite power smoothie/pudding: one avocado, a cup of berries and 2-3 raw eggs, all blended together in a blender. This smoothie/pudding is a power house of nutrition!

Butter and Saturated Fat are Healthy

Butter and saturated fat are healthy! As a nutritionist and health coach, I am amazed at the low fat dogma that still persists in society. Once my clients see this dogma, they embrace the butter, coconut oil and eggs and feel much better.

The origins of butter go back thousands of years to when
our ancestors first started domesticating animals. In fact, the first
written reference to butter was found on a 4500- year old limestone tablet illustrating how butter was made. In India, ghee (clarified butter) has been used as a staple food, and as a symbol of purity, worthy of offering to the gods in religious ceremonies for more than 3000 years.
The Bible has references to butter as the product of milk
from the cow, and of Abraham setting butter and milk from a calf before
three angels who appeared to him on the plains of Mamre.
For millennia, people around the globe have prized butter
for its health benefits.
So how did butter become a villain in the quest for good
health?
At the turn of our century, heart disease in America was
rare. By 1960, it was our number one killer. Yet during the same time
period, butter consumption had decreased – from eighteen pounds per person per year, to four.
A researcher named Ancel Keys was the first to propose that
saturated fat and cholesterol in the diet were to blame for coronary
heart disease. Numerous subsequent studies costing hundreds of millions of dollars, have failed to conclusively back up this claim. Yet the notion that a healthy diet is one with minimal fat, particularly
saturated fat, has persisted. While Americans drastically reduced their
intake of natural animal fats like butter and meat, the processed food
industry, particularly the low-fat food industry, proliferated.
When the baby boomers were children, concerned mothers
began to replace butter with margarine. The margarine manufacturers told
them it was the healthier alternative and mothers believed them. In those
days no one asked, “Where is the science to prove it? I want to
know before I give this man-mad stuff to my children. After all we
humans have been eating butter for thousands of years.”
As a result, since the early 1970’s, Americans’ average saturated fat
intake has dropped considerably, while rates of obesity,
diabetes, and consequently, heart disease, have surged.
Reducing healthy sources of dietary fat has contributed to
a serious decline in the health of our bodies and minds. Those of us that speak out against the anti-fat establishment are still largely ignored.
Is Margarine Better than Butter? No! This is a tragic myth. Butter is a completely natural food essential to your health – especially when you eat organic. Please make the extra effort to obtain high-quality organic, raw butter. Margarines, on the other hand, are a processed food, created chemically from refined polyunsaturated oils. The process used to make these normally liquid oils into spreadable form is called hydrogenation. Margarine and similar hydrogenated or processed polyunsaturated oils are very detrimental to your health.

Butter is rich in the most easily absorbable form of Vitamin A, necessary for thyroid and adrenal health. Butter contains lauric acid, important in treating fungal infections and candida and butter has the following healing properties:

1. Contains lecithin, essential for cholesterol metabolism.
2. Contains anti-oxidants that protect against free radical damage.
3. Has anti-oxidants that protect against weakening arteries.
4. Is a great source of Vitamins E and K.
5. Is a very rich source of the vital mineral selenium.
6. Saturated fats in butter have strong anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties.
7. Butter contains conjugated linoleic acid, which is a potent anti-cancer agent, muscle builder, and immunity booster
8. Vitamin D found in butter is essential to absorption of calcium.
9. Protects against tooth decay.
10. Is your only source of an anti-stiffness factor, which protects against calcification of the joints.
10. Anti-stiffness factor in butter also prevents hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and calcification of the pineal gland.
11. Is a source of Activator X, which helps your body absorb minerals.
12. Is a source of iodine in a highly absorbable form.
13. May promote fertility in women.
14. Is a source of quick energy, and is not stored in our body’s adipose tissue.
15. Cholesterol found in butterfat is essential to children’s brain and nervous system development.
16. Contains Arachidonic Acid, which plays a role in brain function and is a vital component of cell membranes.
17. Protects against gastrointestinal infections

 

Raw butter is an incredible raw fat. It is a top notch healing food for our modern times. It soothes and lubricates nerves, muscles, and mucous membranes, cleanses and strengthens all the organs and glands, heals intestinal lesions, dissolves hardened plaque from eating bad fats, binds with and helps remove toxins and waste products from the body, lubricates bones and joints, cleanses, fuels, lubricates, protects, and rejuvenates cells, and aids in new cellular growth.

Grass fed, raw, Organic Butter is the Best as all the nutrients are available as pasteurization destroys the enzymes, acids and some of the vitamins and minerals. If you cannot obtain raw butter, the best choice is grass fed, organic pasteurized butter.

The Truth About Nutrition

As I began my six-mile hike to the top of the Lookout Mountain via the Scout Trail, which gains 2700 feet in elevation, from 5700 feet to 8400 feet, I noticed a sign next to the start of the trail and it got me thinking.

“There are three things that can not be long hidden: The Sun, the Moon and the Truth.”

Stated 2500 years ago by the Buddha and it still rings true today. Of course, we cannot control the Sun and the Moon, but we definitely can control the truth within ourselves and the truth that we speak. The funny thing about this statement is that most people enjoy seeing the sun after several rainy or foggy days and most everyone enjoys seeing the moon shining in the sky, especially the full moon, but a lot of folks are uncomfortable or afraid of the truth, especially when it is about them or about a subject, business or government that they have a personal interest in.

I suddenly thought about the “truth about nutrition” and how so many people are being deceived about real healing foods. Our society is so full of toxins and toxic food and outright propaganda from the government, the big food industry and the medical industry. The truth is always there and will always be; it just takes courage and patience to discover those truths that are hidden or disguised. The truth about nutrition is one of those hidden truths. Truth and nutrition will have a big impact on your life. Real healthy nutrition can and will improve your health and start to heal your body and mind. Never accept when your doctor or mainstream medicine tells you that there is nothing else that can be done for you and that you will have to take drugs and accept your illness or disease. That is not the truth. Nutrition will make a difference and that is the truth. How much of a difference is unknown as sometimes the body is so damaged that nutrition will only go so far in the healing process, but it will help to some degree.

Never be afraid to speak the truth, for the truth shall set your free. The truth about nutrition is going mainstream!

Health Food Stores are not all that Healthy!

I shop at health food stores and I use to think everything in the health food stores was actually healthy. I had the wool pulled over my eyes. Fortunately, I removed the wool and I now know exactly how to shop at the health foods stores for truly healthy food, while avoiding all the unhealthy food. Most health food stores will not carry any products containing artificial sweeteners, colors or flavorings and products with hydrogenated oils. This is a good thing and for many folks, it’s a good starting point.

However, there is way more to health than just avoiding artificial foods and hydrogenated oils; and sadly, most folks do not realize this and they still struggle with their health while shopping at health food stores. Unfortunately, health food stores do not educate their customers enough and the health food stores continue to carry sugar laden drinks and grocery items that cause severe damage to the health of their customers.

I estimate that 65% of the food in health food stores are unhealthy and are directly contributing to the unhealthy epidemic that is plaguing our society. Most of the grocery items are simply too full of sugar and are highly processed. A few items that come to mind are: boxed cereal, potato chips, sugar sweetened sodas, canned soup, any flour that is not refrigerated and the majority of cookies, pretzels, sports drinks and nutrition bars. Start reading the label of these items and you’ll see the amount of carbohydrates, which is sugar to your body. The main reason people are ill is the over consumption of carbohydrates.

The other products that are truly unhealthy are the dairy products. Dairy is healthy when it is raw and that is a fact. Some states allow raw dairy in the grocery stores, but most do not. The simple fact is that pasteurized dairy, even if it is organic and grass fed, is not healthy and can cause a host of problems; plus, it’s a waste of money buying pasteurized dairy as most of the nutrition has been denatured due to the pasteurization.

Shop the perimeter of the health food stores and buy vegetables, fruits, eggs, grass fed or wild meats, bulk items such as nuts, seeds, beans and grains; but, do not eat too many beans and grains as these foods are full of starchy carbohydrates. In the interior of the store you will find a few items worthy of eating, such as olive oil, coconut oil, nut and seed butters and a few low sugar sweet treats and a few low sugar nutrition bars that are free of soy, refined sugar and dairy. In the cooler and freezer, you can find some healthy drinks like kombucha tea, my favorite being High Country Kombucha and some real low sugar drinks and healthy items like miso and sauerkraut.

Shopping a health food store takes some knowledge if you want to achieve awesome and amazing health. It can be done. Shopping for healthy items in a typical grocery store; well, that’s another story.

Perhaps in the future, enough people will eat really healthy and the unhealthy items in the heath food stores will no longer be bought; and thus, the health food stores will have a major upgrade and the name, “Health Food Store” will actually mean what it says.

Raw Milk, FDA and the Health of the Nation!

In regards to raw milk, if we truly live in a free country, then all of us should be able to choose to drink raw milk or not. I will continue to drink it, as I have for 8 years, with excellent health benefits.

The FDA is in bed with the drug and chemical companies and the big unhealthy dairy, meat, and agricultural giants.

Look around and see how much good the FDA has really done for the health of this country. NOT MUCH!

Look around and see how many folks are dying everyday from cancer, diabetes, digestive issues, etc. What’s the main reason for these health epidemics: TOXINS that the FDA has approved: toxins in the food, toxins in the drinking water, in the clothes, etc.

Seventy –five percent of the U.S population is unhealthy. Why? Because they eat crappy toxic food laden with artificial ingredients and pesticides, herbicides, etc. They wear make-up that is highly toxic, along with their shampoo, deodorant, laundry soap, cleaning supplies,etc. All these obnoxious and deadly chemicals were approved by the FDA.

One in 40 male kids has autism; kids are getting diabetes; kids have cancer; 20% of kids and adults are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and most adults are overweight. And it’s only getting worse, as parents pass their unhealthy genes to their kids and their kids to their kids and so on. Each year, more kids are going to be born with birth defects. I guarantee it, unless we clean up our food and water and air. But, the big drug companies do not care. More sick people means more profit. We live in a disease care society. Disease equals profit, just like our military industrial empire. War equals profit. It’s all about the money.

Since 1970, billions of dollars have been spent on a cancer cure and we are no closer to a cure than the possibility of a fish riding a bicycle. The cancer industry does not want a cure and they will do all in their power to continue to make more drugs and make more money under the false pretense of helping people. How often have we heard this line? “New promising cancer drug to hit the market soon with great hopes of a cure.”

I have never in my wildest nightmares seen such a frightening and viscous onslaught of propaganda, intimidation and downright evilness in creating a culture of sick, uneducated and apathetic people who do not question the government, the FDA, certain corporations and other institutions whose soul purpose is to put profit before people. And for those healthy and truth seeking people like myself, who are not afraid to speak out against the atrocities that the FDA, the military, certain corporations, etc are making, we get marked as unpatriotic, crazy, health nuts, etc.

The powers to be will do anything, even kill innocent people with military weapons or pharmaceutical weapons to continue to make their money.

I leave you with a quote by Sinclair Lewis.

“It’s very difficult to get a person to understand something when that person’s salary depends on not understand it.”
