BIOFILM: ROOT of Chronic Disease?

Three out of five people will die of chronic inflammatory illness worldwide. Why do we see rising chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's? Recent electron microscopy reveals that these chronic diseases are inseparably linked to complex BIOFILM communities of pathological microbes that can hide in the body and become resistant to antibiotics. What is BIOFILM? What ailments are associated with it? How can we AVOID it? Shouldn't we take a closer look at BIOFILM, since it ...


Easy Vegan Focaccia with Rosemary

This is a fantastic crispy flat bread with a savory topping that's great for vegans and anyone avoiding eggs. It's something like a Focaccia Pizza, topped with my delicious Vegan Parmesan Cheese that tastes just like "Parmigiano Reggiano". Chia seeds are a highly nutritious egg-substitute that creates a soft, pleasing texture in the bread. White chia seeds are available in most whole food groceries, and disappear in the the bread. Black chia seeds will make black spots, but it will ...

Is Coffee Paleo?

By Jane Barthelemy. So, is coffee Paleo? Well, the correct answer is NO. Even wishful thinking won't put it in the Paleo era. The bullet-proof truth is that coffee was first cultivated in Ethiopia c. 900 years after Christ, roughly 10,000 years after the Paleo period. One of today's most profitable and addictive habits, coffee was actually banned in Mecca in the 1500's as intoxicating and inciting radical thinking! But royal intervention changed all that, and soon coffee spread  ...

How Did We Get ADDICTED to “HEALTHY” foods we eat EVERY DAY?

Many people tell me they’ve quit sugar. They eat “Healthy” foods like organic noodles, fried rice, granola bars, chips, and prebiotic sodas. These ultra high-carb foods instantly turn to sugar in the body. So I wonder “What’s the disconnect?” Last week I hosted friends for a week’s visit. They like to snack every 3 hours on sugar or carbs. I said nothing, but it was an AHA! MOMENT!  Now I FINALLY understand. Every ADDICTION brings cravings. We feel “hungry” and ...

Low-Carb Rosemary-Walnut Bread

Looks like bread, tastes like bread, but NO refined carbs. Hooray! A full-bodied Mediterranean-style bread with amazing flavor, you can taste the olive oil and black pepper in every bite. High-protein, gluten-free, grain-free and Paleo, it's made with almond meal, chia seeds, egg, and walnuts. This EASY bread tastes scrumptious with my Vegan Butter, Presto Pesto!, or just dip it in olive oil. I'm tempted to eat the whole loaf, but I'll freeze with paper between slices so I can have one ...

Xylitol, NOT a low calorie sweetener!

By Jane Barthelemy. Is Xylitol a healthy sweetener? Touted as a safe sugar substitute for diabetics in snacks, chewing gum, and baking, Xylitol is NOT the low-calorie sweetener it's cracked up to be. Just look at the nutrition label and you'll see it's loaded with calories and carbs. I don't accept that stripping birch bark and thus killing the tree is sustainable or earth-friendly. How is Xylitol produced? How does it affect the body? You deserve to know the truth to ...

Cocoa-Nutty Paleo Granola

When I'm in a hurry, my stash of this granola saves the day! Loaded with nutrient dense seeds and crunchy nuts, it is gluten-free, Paleo, with tasty cocoa and cinnamon. High in protein, low in sugar, it's a yummy breakfast with any nut milk. Or make your own Homemade Nut Milk. Commercial granola is usually loaded with sugars, which is the body's worst metabolic scrambler. Keep this granola on hand and enjoy whenever you need a fast, nutritious breakfast. Many people consider buckwheat a ...

10 Steps to Maintain Healthy Weight as We Age

Is it normal and unavoidable for our bodies to expand every year? I don't think so. Weight gain is NOT not a necessary part of aging. We sometimes think of midriff fat as negative only for our outer appearance. But in fact the midriff bulge hides invisible health risks inside your body in both men and women. There are myriad causes and cures for the expanding midriff. It's a poorly understood topic that affects millions. In this heavily researched article ...

The Total Liver Cleanse: 6 Steps to Harmony

The liver is one of the largest organs in the body and the second in command after the heart. If the heart is the Supreme Ruler who makes the decisions, the Liver is the Prime Minister who executes all the plans. Your liver has the all-important job of detoxing and filtering your blood to remove toxins and pathogens, to balance the organs and keep you alive. Asking if you should detox your liver is like asking: “How long are you ...

15-Minute Green Goddess Detox Soup

Pamper your taste buds with this rich, detoxifying soup!  "Only the pure in heart can make a good soup." said Ludwig von Beethoven. This satisfying soup is the perfect nourishment AND detox medicine, using the magic of pure vegetables. The recipe makes a big pot, and it’s very flexible - feel free to use any veggies on hand. I love green beans, asparagus, and zucchini. (But, if you don’t like asparagus, just use another veggie!)  For a beautiful green color, I used mostly green veggies ...


Detox Spinach Avocado Walnut Dip

This 5-minute dip is bursting with flavor and nutrients. Like a fresh pesto, it tastes zingy and alive. We can't measure LIFE FORCE in food. However we know instinctively that fresh alkaline foods have lots of healthy Qi, and processed foods do NOT. So garden-fresh foods are far higher in life force. This delicious spinach pesto is exploding with life! To make the dip, just put everything in the food processor, whiz, and it's ready in moments! I love crunchy chips, but these days I'm into colorful sliced veggies, ...
