Holiday Recipes and Tips

Vegan Cheesecake with Miracle Reds

Finding holiday fare that is both “safe” and company friendly can be a challenge. You want to maintain the alkaline lifestyle, but you also want to have a treat. Not to worry. I have always said if you are going to cheat at least cheat healthy.

Native North American Feast

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Recipe Bison Seeds Cranberries

The ingredients in this recipe are indigenous to the North American continent and were staples in the native people’s diet. Common foods we see in the grocery store today originated on other continents, and have been cultivated for thousands of years and brought here. The foods we eat everyday mostly originated from the Middle East, India, South America and China, and are not native to North America.

The Origin of Cancer Cells

Cancer Cells Otto Warburg oxygen cause by a fermentation of sugar

Professor Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his work in which he proved that cancer cannot live in an oxygen rich environment. He described his findings by saying that "the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar." The Warburg hypothesis suggests that the force behind the formation of a tumor is an insufficient cellular respiration caused by insult to mitochondria. The mitochondria are organized and very specialized structures living within a cell. A normal healthy cell produces pyruvic acid, which supplies energy to living cells through the Krebs cycle when oxygen is present. This function is prohibited in a cancer cell.

A Few Words About Sprouting

Sprouting seeds beans grains recipe directions

I feel I need to say a few words about sprouting. The thought of sprouting seeds, beans and grains can seem obsessive, time consuming and hard to do. I know this because that is what I used to think. Sprouting does not need to be this big mysterious thing. Just the opposite, it is easy and takes less time than toasting a bagel. Sprouting will save money at the market. For pennies sprouted grains, seeds and beans deliver a big pay off. Because of the magic of sprouting, acid foods become an alkaline powerhouse of enzymes, vitamins, minerals and proteins. Once sprouted beans become a high pH food, beans no longer cause gas, bloat or heartburn, because they are more easily digested and assimilated they actually improve the efficiency of digestion.

Svaroopa Yoga — The Magic Four

Svaroopa Yoga is a gentle restorative style of yoga and is appropriate for any body. It is easy to break a dead branch, but it is almost impossible to break a sapling. Our body is no different. If we don’t keep our muscles supple and stretched old age will creep up on us much faster, or at least we will feel that way. These poses also can support any healing process while furthering personal growth and transformation. While at the same time helping you develop transcendent inner experiences. While doing these poses try practicing deep breathing to bring as much life giving oxygen into every molecule of your being.  

Cheat Healthy Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse

Years ago when I was being trained as a Nutritionist’s assistant, I learned many little tricks to stay healthy. One thing that I now teach — if you are going to cheat on your diet, always cheat healthy. If making the best choice in any situation is all you can do, then you’ve done your best... move on. If I know a food is going to make me sick or lower my pH for a few days, the first thing I ask myself, is this food yummy enough to warrant how bad I will feel later? The little voice in my head usually warns, “nope not worth it!” The following recipe is decadent and satisfying, yet healthy. Believe it or not, it’s possible to achieve both.

Spotlight on Macro Greens™

Macro Greens alkalizing whole food source morning smoothie gluten-free vegan raw

My family and I have been adding Macro Greens to our daily diet for many years. It’s our secret weapon for keeping alkaline and getting the wholesome nutrients we might otherwise be missing. We all lead active lives and don’t always have the time to juice or eat the way we know we should. Macro Greens is that great pick-me-up snack between meals or as part of our morning smoothie that keeps us on track — a true nutrient rich super-food for adults and children alike.

Why Test Body Fluids for pH?

urine saliva basal body temperature ph thyroid high blood pressure cholesterol

There are many in the healthcare field today to whom testing urine or saliva pH is considered quackery. I don’t agree. For me regular pH testing is not that different from testing one’s temperature. We know our body temperature can tell a great deal about the state of our health. For example, many women use the temperature method as an effective and natural birth control. By charting a woman’s basal body temperature every morning she knows when she is ovulating. Immediately after ovulation the body temperature will go slightly higher, a fraction of a degree tells a lot. Tracking temperature can also tell a great deal about thyroid function. Chronically low basal temperatures can mean a low thyroid function. We check a child’s temperature when sick to make sure it doesn’t go dangerously high and cause brain damage. If a person’s temperature dips too low hyperthermia will result. Just think how a change in temperature affects water. In the food industry the temperature of food storage can mean the difference between safe food and foods that poison.
