Opening minds and hearts to Hope and Inspiring Change to Lead a Creative Life!
As you can see, this is a full time job! Precisely WHY I am working from home this January. I was slowly preparing for this the month of November and December. The only gifts I asked for the holidays... Whole Foods Gift certificate, baby! And that is precisely what I got! Thx Fam! It just made life easier to be able to get my veggies 2x a week so they would stay fresh. I now don't waste any fruits or veggies cuz they can always go in the juicer! It's awesome!
Some interesting tips and side notes for you all!
Cancer likes sugar. Sugar is the #1 item anyone will tell you to stop consuming. Does it mean 100%? No, you can still eat minimal fruits. The idea is to keep your Glycemic levels really low to help kill off the cancer cells. That is why there are such diets as the Budwig , Keto and Gersen diets that people follow. I still like to follow the Tami-diet :) which is... fresh is best, green is good, protein it up, fruit for dessert, all other food only consume once in a while. :)
Olive oil is what you should use for salad dressing NOT to cook with! Cook with Coconut or Grapeseed oils. ( reason: they can withstand a hot cooking temperature and won't become carcinogenic)
If you are not eating meat, you should eat a sh++load of seeds for protein.
Consume Nuts for healthy omega fats.
Good idea to include a fermented product ( i do sauerkraut) for a healthy gut or a Probiotic. My Natrapath suggested this one... http://www.shopraby.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=probiomax
Cruciferous veggies ( the leafy ones) are what you want to mainly eat.
When you are shopping at the store you want ALL non-fresh items to have the label NON-GMO and USDA and ORGANIC no questions asked! Why not try the farmers markets instead of the grocery store? Support local!
If you consume meat, you want GRASS-FED.
AND of course remember you want your water FILTERED in glass, ceramic or stainless steel drinking items.
this is my refrigerator list so whoever enters the kitchen knows what's up!
Thanks for joining me in my healing breast cancer journey. Things are going well and I feel really optimistic with all the changes and new routines I have implemented. I am now out of the starting gate and ready to tackle even more! It feels good to take care of myself and know that I am doing "all the right things". The REAL test will be making all these changes and instituting them for the REST OF MY LIFE. At this point in the game, I feel it is REALLY POSSIBLE. I don't feel like I wanna deviate. ALL this research has really opened my eyes and shed light on where we have evolved this world and what we need to do to fix it so we can protect ourselves from disease and protect our children and the future generations. It IS possible. I am often thinking of "how my grandmother grew up" and I really wish she was around to school me again on WHAT their day to day life consisted of.... Even though electronics seem to be the evil of alot of health issues and stress, I believe we CAN use our knowledge and technology to help us GET BACK to what WAS working. FOOD really can be our medicine. We have just altered it SO MUCH that our bodies don't know how to react and they are now toxic. When you think about it, all we really need it Shelter, Food, Water and Fire to survive. WE have all these material things and get consumed with all that is out there, and we forget what we really NEED to be happy and healthy. My huge shoe collection sure is cute BUT at the end of the day it does not make me healthy and happy. So let's CHEERS our GREEN DRINKS to a new future that is less toxic because WE all helped us get back there as a nation!
