How Healthy is Your Breakfast Cereal?

A healthy breakfast means a bowl of cereal with milk and sugar. Right? Isn't this an American tradition? Nope. It’s actually a very recent marketing invention. A tiny mistake in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1870 changed the face of breakfast forever. Harvey Kellogg (recognize the name?) was the director of a popular health retreat. Kellogg was said to treat his guests with many bizarre experiments for health improvement. One of his invention was a whole grain corn breakfast cereal ...

Dark Sprouted Rice, Superior Nutrition! It’s all about the MINERALS!

Rice is the main food for 2/3 of the world. Which kind is best?  Check out this nutrition comparison!  It's all about minerals lost in processing white rice. It turns out dark red and black rice are not only tastier, they also provide complete minerals. The only requirement is that rice must be properly cultivated, hulled, soaked, and sprouted. Better quality precision hulling machines don't strip away the dark coating containing the nutrients. Good-bye disease! Red Rice has 5x the ...

Stop a Panic Attack Fast: Managing Transformational Stress

A panic attack is an episode of paralyzing fear triggered by something small and seemingly insignificant. The average attack lasts about five to ten minutes. A panic attack often seems to begin abruptly and may include rapid heartbeat, chest constriction, difficulty breathing, dizziness, tingling, and anxiety. However, the surging chemicals of panic in your body have been years in the making before they manifest, because their deeper emotional roots may be in a distant time and place. Our ...

DEPRESSION is NOT a DISEASE

DEPRESSION is just a name we use to describe many different emotional chemistry patterns in the brain and body. In Western medicine, all these patterns are neatly rolled up into one easy diagnostic term: DEPRESSION. But the root causes are rarely discussed, and true healing methods mostly unknown. Depression is something we do to ourselves. It takes years of habitual stress, emotions, tensions, thoughts, foods, and lifestyle imbalances to create a "Perfect Storm" for Depression. What are the ...

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 want more FUEL ...

AVOID: Top 3 Foods of Inflammation & Heart Disease

THIS is the root of inflammation and auto-immune disease. These three ingredients contain no nutrition, and are the #1 cause of our ...

Be a Ninja Grocery Shopper!

A Ninja grocery shopper knows how to read labels and can see through spurious claims in fake foods. Most people in grocery stores are unaware, guided by cravings, colors, or store layout. Uh Oh! Sometimes I wonder - how did that food get in their cart? How do YOU shop? What's your thought process as you go through a store? If you follow the store layout like most people, you'll spend a lot more $ dollars, and get less nutrition. OR you can become a Ninja shopping warrior! Aha! Awareness is everything.

History of Breakfast – What Happened to Our Food?

Let's just trace the history of our beloved first meal of the day, in light of world money and food addictions. Yep. Especially sugar. For sure, breakfast wasn’t always corn flakes or toast with jam. Nowadays, what we eat is determined much by personal habit, but at what cost? Why are ALL the top ...

Why I Became Paleo-Vegetarian

I am a NATURE GIRL. There’s a perfection in NATURE. The complex eco-system of LIFE on our planet is so wondrous, especially the way it is able to maintain BALANCE. Anything leftover, Nature intelligently recycles into herself with ants or bacterial decomposition back into the Earth. So, even if our human activities twist Nature out of whack, the pendulum of fate will always miraculously bring it back to a balanced state. Ha Ha! I'm waiting impatiently for that right now! Why did I become ...

Still Counting Calories & Carbs?

We love to measure things. We hope by counting Nutrition Facts we can know how GOOD a food is for us. But how effective is it? What about the vast nutritional gap between the three realms of food: Organic vs. "Conventional" vs. GMO? What's the effect of chemicals on complete nutrition? Obviously, this will vary depending on the type of seed, minerals and microbes in the soil, growing conditions, and freshness of the food. Ha Ha! Did you know that calorie and carb counts are based on average ...

BOMBSHELL! INFLAMMATION Causes Disease, NOT Cholesterol

WHY do so many people eat a "healthy" diet yet have high cholesterol? What exactly is cholesterol, anyway? Is it BAD, BAD, BAD like we hear? Cholesterol is a waxy substance produced by every cell of the body. It holds our cell walls firm. In fact, without cholesterol we would be soft and fall apart. One of cholesterol's roles in the body is to travel to inflamed areas to repair tiny breaks or lesions that irritate tissues, internal or external. For example, cholesterol makes a hard scab on ...

Chronic Disease is Just Nutrients Lost in Processed Food

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 rest. Many people ask me questions: What kind of flour should I use? Are sweeteners that raise blood sugar Paleo-approved? Why aren't grains and legumes ...
