FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART MONTH

THE HEART:
The heart is one of the most important organs in the entire human body. It is really nothing more than a pump, composed of muscle which pumps blood throughout the body, beating approximately 72 times per minute of our lives. The heart pumps the blood, which carries all the vital materials which help our bodies function and removes the waste products that we do not need. For example, the brain requires oxygen and glucose, which, if not received continuously, will cause it to loose consciousness. Muscles need oxygen, glucose and amino acids, as well as the proper ratio of sodium, calcium and potassium salts in order to contract normally. The glands need sufficient supplies of raw materials from which to manufacture the specific secretions. If the heart ever ceases to pump blood the body begins to shut down and after a very short period of time will die.

WHAT DOES THE HEAT & OREGANO HAVE IN COMMON:

Oregano ~ Known for its ability to prevent and cure several ailments to a great extent, oregano is a rich source for controlling cholesterol& fighting dietary fiber, as well as antioxidants such as vitamin-C. (To store fresh oregano, snip off its tips and keep the stalks upright in some water, just like flowers.)

Antioxidants fight against free radicals (which are basically charged molecules capable of causing undesired chemical reactions) and thus help prevent heart disease, among other health issues. Oregano helps fight off inflammation inducing free radicals, and protect the heart against ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL).

Acidic Foods And The Harm They Have on Your Health

A typical traditional American diet consist of animal protein and rich buttery sauces, white sugar, white/wheat flour, cloned meats and animals filled with all types of hormones and other chemicals

Choose the lifestyle of an Alkaline Vegan

which truthfully equates to an acidic diet. Did you know when you consume acidic foods it effects your pH level? When your pH level is more acidic than alkaline your body accommodates and welcomes when a disease invades it. Theres always a remedy for us because everything we need was placed within us from the onset of our existence. The remedy is choosing to create an alkaline environment for your body to exist in. Having an alkaline pH creates an environment in the body that diseases can’t thrive in and take over in!!!!!We put a lot of thought into ourselves from the outside prospective meaning adorning ourselves, caring about our appearances but how much time do we put into our internal selves. How many of us think about our organs? How many of us think about our blood, our joints (not when they are aching) our lungs, heart and all the rest of them? Today I want to encourage each of us to think more about our bodies but go deep within and think about how the foods we eat day in and day out come with a high price and one day we will have to pay the high cost and hopefully it won’t be too high of a price that we can’t afford to pay. The remedy yes there is a remedy. An alkaline vegan lifestyle is our remedy our ram in the bush instead of our lives. It’s really simple! Choose life over death, choose plants, berries, whole grains and nuts that are least acidic. Start some where if it’s too much for you to do all at once. Where should you start? I strongly recommend beginning with exchanging items from your life with healthier foods. Replace white flour with least acidic grains like spelt, kamut, and quinoa. Replace your sugars with raw agave’ and natural date sugar (no exceptions) Sugar is highly toxic in the body!!!! Replace your dairy milks, creamers, ice cream, butters with nut butters, nut milk, grain milk. Replace eating meats 7 days a week to eating them 4 days a week. Hey I respect some are more attached to their meats!!! The choice of becoming a alkaline vegan is really up to the each of us to decide and I hope you decide sooner than later.
BE WELL!

 

 

The Lifestyle of An Alkaline Vegan Girl ~ From Shopping to Cooking to Preparing Meals

a1343640207_10

Ready! Set! Go! You have made the decision so many of us have made and that decision is to be an alkaline vegan. After learning about the alkaline vegan lifestyle through viewing DVDs and attending live lectures of  Dr. Sebi I made the same decision many others have made to commit to the lifestyle of an alkaline vegan.

Now that you’ve made the decision you may be asking yourself what is next. There are many pointers that all lead to great health but for this blog I want to focus on 3 questions asked  by Naya one of the members in my Facebook groups Alkaline Vegan Girls, 1) where do you grocery shop, 2) how often, and 3) what are the pantry essentials? https://www.facebook.com/groups/alkalinevegangirls/  These are the my thoughts about the questions asked:

“My Top 5 Places to Shop”

farmers-market

  1. Local Farmer’s Markets ~ fresh produce, grains, flours, and spices, nuts
  2. Local International Markets ~ fresh produce with Hispanic origins, fresh herbs for seasoning foods
  3. Local Health Food Stores ~ loose herbs for teas, some grains, nuts and seeds
  4. Chain stores ~ While I am out in the community working with client’s I look to see what is on the nutritional guide and sometimes the  chain stores will have spelt and quinoa flour
  5. Online ~ herbs for teas and seasonings, pastas and breads.

How Often Do I Shop and What are the Pantry Essentials:

stockingavegankitchen-lg

I shop weekly and usually at the beginning of the week on Sundays or the end of the week on Saturday. The key essentials for an alkaline vegan to have in the pantry are the following:

  1. whole grains  & whole grain flour~ spelt, kamut, quinoa, wild rice
  2. cooking oils ~ grape seed and avocado
  3. fresh produce ~ onions, peppers, mushrooms, kale, dandelions greens, romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, butternut squash, chayote squash, key limes, seeded grapes, burro bananas, fresh young coconuts, green/yellow, frozen fruit for smoothies
  4. Nuts, seeds and beans ~walnuts, hemp seeds, and garbanzo beans dry
  5. Raw agave’ nectar and pitted dates for sweeteners
  6. Fresh or dried herbs for seasonings ~ ginger, oregano, basil, fennel, onion powder, sage, dill, all spice, clove

Upon Rising Drink Spring Water to “Energize your Body, Mind, and Protect your Heart”

  • 70% of the human body content is water, and so water plays an important role in the proper functioning of your body.
  • The human brain cells contain about 85% of water.
  • 75% of muscles is water
  • Bones also contain about 25% water
  • 82% of blood consists of water.

It has long been known that drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach purifies the body’s internal system and cleanses the colon, which makes the body much more able to absorb nutrients from food. What if I told you the best and quickest way to energize your body and mind daily was by drinking water? Research and physicians report that by drinking water you will energize your body’s muscles and brain, experience less pain and protect your heart. So Rise & Shine Daily with A Full Glass of Spring Water!

I’m on the road traveling to visit family and it is a must to be prepared with electric foods when traveling! No worries I learned from the best, packed my clothes first and later packed my food! 2 1/2 gallon size smoothies: Raspberry & Mango explosion and Strawberry & Raspberry & Soursop Trio. In the small crockpots I have sautéed kale with onions and peppers on top of a trios of wild rice quinoa and amaranth And one large sautéed mushroom . The second pot has the burro stew with peppers, onions and mushrooms on top of the wild rice trio. I made some ginger cookies and left them right on the counter. Let’s not forget the 1/2 gallon of spring water and key limes, and all my herbs.

Thinking about fasting? Here is a list of the various forms of fasting.
Thinking about fasting? Here is a list of the various forms of fasting.

After completing a 31 day fast and posting my experiences daily to our Alkalize Vegan Lifestyle Before & After group on FaceBook, I realized many people are interested in fasting for many reasons. Some fast to loose weight while others fast to reverse illness and disease and to prevent illness and disease.
