How Much Life Force is in Your Food?

Is your food glowing with life force? Or is it lifeless? When a food has just been picked, it's ALIVE with life force and nutrients! Life force is vital energy or Qi. After harvesting, the life force gradually declines. At the very last stage of decline, microbes take over, it disintegrates, dies and gets recycled back into the earth. When food is processed at high heat, it loses life force, so high temperature baking, frying, and irradiation cause a loss in nutrients. When raw foods are dried or dehydrated,...

Still Counting Calories & Carbs?

By Jane Barthelemy. Counting is an accepted way to measure nutrition. But how effective is it? Calorie and carb counts are based on measures over 100 years old, and vary tremendously depending on the soil and growing conditions. So in the unlikely event that we can estimate the nutritional value of what you put IN, the big question is - how much of that is absorbed by your body as nourishment? Then there's the fact that your body is smart. It is constantly swapping molecular nutrients, and your intestinal bacteria is a nutrient factory. So what you put IN doesn't equal what you receive. Calories and nutrition labels are wild estimates at best. The more relevant questions are - Is there any life force in your food, is it grown in healthy soil, and is it free of modern toxins? I wonder - why do we even count calories and nutrients going IN, if it's only a fraction of the picture?...

How Healthy is Your Breakfast Cereal?

By Jane Barthelemy. A healthy breakfast means a bowl of cereal. Right? After all 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?)...
