MONO MEALS


watermelon

What is A Mono Meal and How Can  I Began?
A “Mono Meal” is simply when you eat only 1 type of food and you don’t do any kind of food combining.  Below are some
common examples of mono eating…
– Eating nothing but watermelon for breakfast.
– Eating nothing but apples for lunch.
– Eating nothing but mangoes for dinner.
– Eating nothing but kale juice for a whole day.
– Eating nothing but bananas for a whole week.For people who are used to eating meals that involve a lot of ingredients and fancy food prep the idea of eating nothing
but watermelon might seem bland and boring, and to others the idea of eating all the watermelon that you want is pure heaven,
and while it can be wonderful to eat the electric meals we are discovering with the foods on Dr. Sebi’s nutritional guide and all our energy to prepare them,  it can also
be wonderful to eat a meal that mother nature spent a lot of time and energy creating for you…

You may want to begin the day with melons and for lunch pick another fruit like blueberries.  

 

Blueberries Make A Great Mono Meal

monomeals
Enjoy all the blueberries you desire for lunch
For Dinner Try Another Mono Meal Like Cucumbers!

 The major benefit is resting the digestive track and allowing the body to heal itself with all the free energy. The key is to only consume raw fruits or veggies.
Another benefit is learning to appreciate electric foods and meals.

-RASPBERRY tea which has been listed below:
Anti-inflammatory benefits

It has been proven since ages, that drinking raspberry tea helps in reducing pain and inflammations associated with diseases like arthritis and gout. Due to the presence of the chemicals known as anthocyanins, drinking raspberry tea four time per day helps in lowering the amount of anti-inflammatory medicines that are needed for curing inflammatory joint conditions. Boiling 1 ounce of dried raspberry leaves in a pint of water for a period of 15 minutes creates a concoction that one can drink for getting relief from these pains.
Acts as a powerful antioxidant
The antioxidants present in raspberry tea helps in protecting our cells from damages created by the free radicals in our body. Ellagic acid which is found in the raspberry leaves along with chemicals like anthrocyanins and quercitin also offers protection against fungal and bacterial infections which helps in alleviating irritable bowel syndromes and vaginal yeast infections in women. It has been observed that drinking raspberry tea for three times every day, aids in soothing the mucus lining of our gastro-intestinal track.
Strengthens the uterus

Native Americans have used raspberry tea as a uterine tonic for thousands of ages, which helps strengthening the uterine muscles during pregnancy. It is also believed that drinking raspberry tea helps in strengthening contractions during labor. The book “Back to Eden” written by the famous scholar Jethro Kloss illustrates the benefit of drinking raspberry tea during the term of pregnancy.
Provides protection against cancer

Studies done on raspberry tea in South Carolina’s “Hollings Cancer Center” shows evidences that as the human body easily absorbs Ellagic acid, this chemical helps in demolishing certain type of cancer cells, specially carcinomas in places like tongue, colon, lungs, esophagus, skin and breast tissues.
Helps in strengthening the heart and circulatory system

Raspberry tea, which is high in its content of gallic acid and Vitamin C have shown to protect the heart and circulatory system. It also helps in slowing down the advancement of age related diseases and it rejuvenates our skin.

Apart from these above mentioned benefits raspberry tea has also been used for several centuries as a folk remedy for treating diseases like cold sores, canker sores and for treating gingivitis in persons of all age. This tea is also an excellent medicine against anemia, diarrhea, leg cramps and morning sickness in pregnant women.

However raspberry leaf tea must not be ingested by anyone who is also taking medications like codeine, atropine, acetaminophen, theophylline and ephedrine as it may cause nausea and loose stool when both these medications are taken simultaneously

benefits-Chamomile-Tea

-CHAMOMILE, meaning ‘ground apple,’ has been imbibed for centuries in the Roman Empire, during Egyptian rule, and in ancient Greece. Prized for its special flavanoids, chrysin, chamomile (Matricaria recutita, or Matricaria chamomilla) offers numerous health-boosting benefits. Here are 9 amazing health benefits of chamomile tea that every foodie should know about.
1. Treats Cuts and Wounds – Chamomile tea was used by the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians as a salve for wounds to expedite healing. In a recent study, rats given chamomile flavored water healed faster than those who were not given the elixir. It worked especially well for burn wounds. This is because Matricaria chamomilla has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant effects.

2. Helps with Diabetes – Some research has shown that chamomile can help those suffering from diabetes. It also helps with hyperglycemia.

3. Antibacterial – The antibacterial effects of drinking chamomile tea can help to prevent and treat colds while protecting against bacterial-related illness and infection.

4. Calms Muscle Spasms – One study from England found that drinking chamomile tea raised urine levels of glycine, a compound that calms muscle spasms. Researchers believe this is why chamomile tea could prove to be an effective home remedy for menstrual cramps as well.

5. Soothes Stomach Ache – Further adding onto chamomile benefits, the herb is a wonderful for soothing an upset stomach. Helping to soothe and relaxe the muscles and lining of the intestines, chamomile can help with poor digestion and even those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

6. Promotes Sleep – Drinking chamomile tea soothes the nervous system so that you can sleep better. It has been used as a solution for insomnia for centuries.

7. Natural Hemorrhoid Treatment – Chamomile ointment can help to relieve hemorrhoids.

8. Fights Cancer – It’s very likely that chamomile tea can help reduce cancerous cells, although research is still ongoing to see exactly how chamomile reverses abnormal cellular growth.

9. Promotes Healthy Skin – With it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties, chamomile helps in clearing up skin irritations such as eczema, acne, and allergies.

Chamomile is known as a ‘tisane’ is any non-caffeinated herbal concoction made by pouring hot water over the leaves, stems, and roots of plants. You can make your own chamomile tea with other plants like lavender or tulsi to vary the flavor, or drink it alone.

There are many applications for dried chamomile including tinctures and essential oils though the easiest and most often used is an infusion or tea. For stomach ailments, muscle spasms, and help in falling asleep, use about one tablespoon of dried herb per cup of water. Pour boiling water over the herbs and allow to steep for about 5 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

-RED CLOVER, known scientifically as Trifolium pretense, is an herbaceous perennial plant that originates from Europe and northern Africa. It is a close relative of the more familiar white clover, although the flowers of red clover are dark pink in color.
Red clover is a common animal fodder, and it also has a variety of uses in herbal medicine. Many preparations of red clover are available including teas, capsules, tablets and liquid extracts. The flowers are popular as a stand-alone ingredient for herbal tea or as one of many ingredients in an herbal blend. In addition to their wonderful flavor, they provide many medicinal qualities as well.

Red clover tea contains a number of active substances that provide significant benefits. Red clover tea generally does not cause serious side effects in the dosages recommended by manufacturers. The most common side effects of red clover tea include headaches, rashes and nausea. You can read more about red clover side effects here.
What are the Benefits of Drinking Red Clover Tea

Isoflavones

Red clover contains significant amounts of compounds known as isoflavones. They are chemically similar to estrogen and therefore have effects similar to those of estrogen. The specific isoflavones in red clover that provide the greatest health benefits include irilone and pratensein.

A 1998 study published in Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine analyzed the mechanism of action for red clover extract. It showed that they are estrogen agonists since they bind to the estradiol receptors in mammalian cells. This study also classified red clover extract as an anti-progestin, meaning that it inhibits the action of the hormone progesterone.

red-clover-benefits
Cardiovascular Health
Some studies show that the isoflavones in red clover may provide protection against heart disease. A 2000 study in Atherosclerosis found an association between these isoflavones and HDL cholesterol levels, commonly known as “good” cholesterol. The subjects in this study included both pre and post-menopausal women. Another study published in a 1999 issue of the Journal of Clinical Endorinol Health showed that red clover supplements made the arteries of menopausal women stronger and more flexible, a condition known medically as arterial compliance. Red clover may also thin the blood, which improves blood flow and prevents blood clots from forming.

Cancer

One of the most promising aspects of red clover is its use in the treatment of cancer. Its stimulating effects on the immune system are one benefit; another is its phytoestrogen compounds that can retard or even kill some types of cancer cells.

The estrogen-like effects of isoflavones mean that red clover tea may help prevent some types of cancer, while contributing to the growth of other types. A 1988 study in Cancer Research showed some preliminary evidence that isoflavones can prevent cancer cells from growing in test tubes. The Medical Journal of Australia published a 1997 study that describes the role that the isoflavones in red clover may play in preventing endometrial and prostate cancer. On the other hand, a 2001 study in the Journal of the British Menopause Society suggests a link between isoflavones and breast cancer.

Osteoporosis

Estrogen levels decrease during menopause, which increases a woman’s risk of losing bone mass. This condition is known as osteoporosis, and is a routine consequence of menopause. A 2007 study in Phytotherapy Research suggests that an extract of red clover may reduce the progression of osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. This extract may also increase the density of minerals in the bones for pre-menopausal women. This evidence is still preliminary, so more research is required for the effects of red clover extract on osteoporosis.

Respiratory problems

Red clover contains resin, a substance helpful to the respiratory system. Resin is a traditional treatment for congestion and cough due to its anti-microbial, expectorating, and warming properties.

Anti-Coagulant

A substance called coumarin, used to produce the anticoagulant drug Coumadin, is found in red clover as well as a number of other plants. Although the anti-coagulant properties of red clover are mild compared to those of Coumadin, those taking any blood thinners should be cautious of taking red clover products in combination with medication.

Gynecological

Isoflavones in red clover mimic the effects of estrogen, which explains why herbalists have traditionally used it in cases of chronic miscarrying and infertility for centuries. Red clover is also considered by some to decrease the ill effects of menopause. It should be noted that increasing estrogen levels is not always a good thing and should be avoided when breast cancer, endometriosis or uterine fibroid are an issue.

Menopause

The most common use of red clover tea in herbal medicine is the relief of menopause symptoms. Red clover also has a long history in herbal medicine for relieving the symptoms of menopause, which is primarily provided by isoflavones such as irilone and pratensein.

Some studies including one issued in the Journal of the American Medical Association published the results of a well-controlled study on Promensil, a preparation of red clover extract that contains a high concentration of isoflavones. This study showed that Promensil reduced the severity of hot flashes in menopausal women as compared to a placebo. Red clover tea also has traditional uses in regulating the menstrual cycle and balancing the pH level in the vagina, which can aid in conception.

Red Clover for Fertility

Red clover is used in herbal medicine to improve the chances of conception, primarily by regulating the menstrual cycle and the pH level of the vagina. The Journal of Animal Science published a study in 1995 showing that red clover increased the weight of the uterus and circumference of the teats in pregnant ewes. These changes were attributed to the stimulation of estradiol receptors by the isoflavones in red clover.

More About the Liver
A healthy functioning liver is important to our bodies and overall good health. Our livers are responsible for so much that we absolutely must become more aware of how to keep it healthy. Our livers break down all our foods, cleanses the toxins in our bodies, processes all of our sensory input, and is our heat-furnace. It’s the only organ in the body that can regenerate.
Our livers are extremely abused in our society, and adding Dulse to your daily nutritional intake can play an important role in helping to heal our bodies and liver.

Cellular Healing

Sea vegetables present these essential nutrients to your body in a chelated, colloidal optimally balanced form so they are bio-available; that is, your body “understands” how to absorb and utilize them. Major minerals examples are:

  • Calcium (for skeletal health, healthy heartbeat, nervous system function)
  • Magnesium (activates enzymatic activity, essential for healthy heartbeat)
  • Potassium (naturally prevents high blood pressure, provides cellular energy)
  • Sodium (essential for the correct balance of body fluids — our internal “ocean”)
  • Iron (as hemoglobin, transports and distributes oxygen to all your cells)

Melon Tuscan, Bella Tuscana Hybrid

As you can see the hybrid cantaloupe has distinct green groove/lines on the skin very different from the non hybrid cantaloup.

So before you head to your local farmer’s market to pick up a fresh cantaloupe be prepared to spot the hybrid from the non hybrid.

 

 

Cooking with Dried Herbs

Dried Herbs
Dried Herbs

Fresh herbs are fun to play with, but they can intimidate some new cooks. Using dried herbs are a good second choice, just remember that they should be added earlier in the cooking process so they can begin to rehydrate and release their flavors.
Be sure to crush/grind herbs or if you don’t have a tool to crush them,   you can rub dried herbs between your thumb and forefinger or between the palms of your hands before adding them to your pot or pan to give the herbs a boost of energy and to help the herbs release their oils and fragrances. Fresh herbs should always be added toward the end of cooking to enjoy their full flavor effect because they are more fragile;

Fresh Ginger & How to Keep It Fresh For When You Need It

As much as I love to use fresh ginger I often end up with it going bad before I use all of it. I recently came across an article on freezing it instead of storing it in the fridge. Heres a tip on how to store it in the freezer.  Don’t just toss it in the it freezer whole – Grate and measure it first. The benefit of finely grating your ginger is that you won’t end-up with those stringy bits of ginger in your food. Since it’s a bit time-consuming, it’s nice to do a whole bunch at once, that way you always have “fresh” ginger on hand when you need it. Another great tip is to store it in 1 tbs sizes because most recipes call for about 1 tbs.  After grated the ginger don’t discard the scraps but instead boil and strain them to make ginger tea.

THE BIO MINERAL APPROACH FOR “PROTEIN” INTAKE

  • Essential amino acids are amino acids that are the building blocks of protein that our body can’t produce by itself. In other words, if we don’t eat them, we won’t get enough of them. Steak, beef, chicken, eggs, pork, fish and milk are not recommended sources of essential amino acids because of the negative effects, and the uric acid they produce in the body, which is destructive to cells; plants have all the essential amino acids our bodies need.
  • Leucine is one of the best essential amino acids for stimulating muscle strength and growth, and also referred to as a BCAA (brand-chain amino acid). Leucine helps regulate your blood sugar by moderating insulin into the body during and after exercise and can even help prevent and treat depression by the way it acts on neurotransmitters in the brain.
  • Good plant-based sources include: seaweed, whole grain rice, sesame seeds, watercress, turnip greens, garbanzo beans, figs, avocados, raisins, dates, apples, blueberries, olives and even bananas. Don’t limit yourself to one food of these choices, and aim for a serving of either seaweed, leafy greens, hemp seeds, whole grains, or garbanzo beans at each meal to be sure you get enough high-quality plant-protein.
  • Isoleucine is another BCAA similar to leucine, however with a few different responsibilities. It is an isolated form of leucine that specifically helps the body produce energy and hemoglobin. It’s also vital assisting in nitrogen growth within the muscle cells, especially in children.
  • Plant-based sources include: rye, garbanzo beans, wild rice, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, elderberries, quinoa, blueberries, apples.
  • Lysine is responsible for proper growth and in the production of carnitine (a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into fuel to lower cholesterol). It also helps the body absorb calcium for even further bone strength and also aids in collagen production. It’s vital to get enough of this amino acid since deficiency can lead to nausea, depression, fatigue, muscle depletion and even osteoporosis.
  • Good plant-based sources of lysine include: garbanzo beans (the best), watercress, hemp seeds, avocados,
  • Methionine helps form cartilage in the body through the use of sulfur. Sulfur is a mineral essential to the production of bone cartilage and no other amino acids contain sulfur aside from methionine. People who don’t eat enough sulfur-containing foods to produce methionine in the body may suffer arthritis, damaged tissue, and poor healing. Methionine also aids in the production of muscle growth and formation of creative, needed for optimal cellular energy.
  • Good plant-based sources of sulfur include: hemp seeds, Brazil nuts, seaweed, spelt, figs, whole grain, wild rice, garbanzo beans, onions, and raisins.
  • Phenylalanine: This amino acid comes in three forms: L-phenylalanine (a natural form found in protein) and D-phenylalanine (a form produced by a laboratory), and DL phenylalanine (a combination of both forms). Always eat food-based sources before choosing supplements or enriched food products with a lab-derived version of this amino acid. Phenylalanine is important in the body because it turns into tyrosine once ingested, which is another amino acid that’s needed to make proteins, brain chemicals, and thyroid hormones. Not obtaining enough of this amino acid can result in brain fog, lack of energy, depression, lack of appetite, or memory problems.
  • Good sources include: seaweed, winter squash, garbanzo beans, wild rice, avocado, walnuts, brazil nuts, quinoa, figs, raisins, leafy greens, most berries, olives, and seeds.
  • Threonine supports a healthy immune system, heart, liver, and central nervous system health. It also helps maintain a balance of proteins within the body to assist in overall repair, energy, and growth. This amino acid also helps the body’s connective tissues and joints in good health by producing glycine and serine in the body, two essential amino acids needed for healthy bones, skin, hair, and nails. In the liver it helps with fatty acid digestion to prevent fatty acid build-up and liver failure.
  • The highest sources of this amino acid is: watercress (which even exceed meat), leafy greens, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and Tahini, avocados, figs, raisins, quinoa, and spelt. Sprouted grains are also excellent sources of this amino acid as well.
  • Tryptophan is vital to a healthy nervous system and brain health, along with sleep, muscle growth and repair, and overall neurotransmitter function.
  • Plant-based sources that include high amounts of tryptophan include: kamut grains, seaweed, hemp seeds, watercress, mushrooms, all lettuces, leafy greens, beans, avocado, figs, winter squash, anise, peppers, chickpeas, onions, apples, oranges, bananas, quinoa.
  • Valine is another BCAA needed for optimal muscle growth and repair. It’s also responsible for endurance and the overall maintenance of good muscle health.
  • High sources of valine include: Garbanzo beans, callaloo, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, whole grains, figs, avocado, apples, sprouted grains and seeds, blueberries, cranberries, oranges. Good plant-based sources of histidine include: wild rice, spelt, rye, seaweed, garbanzo beans, cantaloupe, hemp seeds, burro bananas
