It was founded by Jonas Salk, virologist, medical researcher, and developer of the first polio vaccine. Many pundits are hailing the study as proof that the vaccines are dangerous, and that ...

Blueberry No-Cornmeal Pancakes

Here's a fantastic Mother's Day Breakfast that anyone can do quickly. A few years ago I loved traditional cornmeal pancakes. Back then, corn was healthy, non-GMO, with authentic homemade flavor and crunchy texture. But Uh Oh! Nowadays corn is GMO, lifeless, and tasteless. I miss my favorite pancakes! So I just invented this easy one-step recipe. It's free of grains, gluten, sugar, and GMO's. YAY! It uses blended coconut flakes for an old-fashioned texture that tastes just like corn. Ha Ha! I'm happy now. Throw in your blueberries at the end and stir by hand. Try these pancakes! ...

Why Supplement Vitamin D? Immune Protection!

Warning! GMO-Free Foods Contain Glyphosate

Eating GMO-free? That's great! But if non-GMO is your main guide, here's a wake-up call flying under the radar. Surprise! A whole new generation of fake foods certified GMO-free has just arrived in your favorite grocery. Learn these four food types and how to recognize them:
  1. GMO foods are to be avoided of course. To learn them see the graphic below. These contain genetically modified ingredients, Glyphosate and the most chemicals.
  2. Glyphosate foods are toxic everyday foods, some GMO, some non-GMO that are raised with toxic chemicals allowed by the USDA. (Remember that Glyphosate or worse pesticides and herbicides are in all non-organic foods.)
  3. Certified Non-GMO foods with Glyphosate - Bad News. A whole new generation of non-GMO foods with Glyphosate is getting certified. The public is demanding non-GMO, so these toxic foods are getting approved. I see them filling grocery shelves and flying under the radar. Marketed as healthy, they contain plenty of herbicides and pesticides. Don't buy them. Let food manufacturers know we want CLEAN ORGANIC FOOD.
  4. Organic foods are free of GMO's, Glyphosate and other farming chemicals. Hooray! For health and long life buy Organic. You may pay a bit more, but you'll save even more on health costs, and benefit with a healthy mind and body.

Will the true Paleo Diet please stand up?

What is the authentic Paleo Diet? Myriad interpretations, diverse rules, and disagreements surround the oldest diet on the planet. Other "Paleo experts" relax the rules to the point where we lose the benefits altogether. Perhaps the whole point of Paleo is to be inspired by our ancestral diet, to take the positive points as wisdom and leave the ...

Another flourless blender bread - this is my favorite! If you enjoy Old-World breads, this has an authentic Eastern European flavor. Amazingly easy and so delicious! It tastes like old fashioned dark rye with a hint of sweetness. This is a true comfort-food, delicious with butter or with my Dairy-Free Coconut Cream Cheese. This bread has major health benefits including:
  1. It is high in protein, Omega-3, vitamin, and low carb nutrition from sprouted rye, chia seeds, and eggs. Yay!
  2. Easy to make! Just blend, pour in pan, and bake. There's no kneading or waiting for yeast to rise.
  3. It's easier to digest because the grain is soaked. So it's free of saponins and indigestible coatings found in all seeds, grains, flours and commercial breads.
  4. High-fiber and flourless, this bread cleans your digestive tract, promoting healthy elimination, while preventing mucoid plaque and belly flab associated with flours. DOUBLE YAY!
  5. The biggest advantage is, the flavor of soaked or sprouted grains is out of this world! Commercial breads made with conventional flours just can't compare in taste.

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.
