Cream Pie Two Ways – Vegan

These pH friendly treats will surprise and delight all who try them. I have served the Chocolate Cream variation to friends who had no idea they were eating avocado. I make the Key Lime variation without the crust, filling small cups with the pudding for an easy day or evening sweet treat. An avocado is so rich and creamy, a small amount satisfies like nothing else. 

The power Hydrogen factor

pH hydrogen ion acid alkaline ratio blood levels 7.4 diet

The term "pH" is an acronym for the "potential of Hydrogen” or the hydrion ion exponent. This potential of Hydrogen, sometimes called power Hydrogen is the acid to alkaline ratio existing in all matter. Our blood pH is most vital to our well-being, either a fraction of a point too high or too low can cause death. And this is what would happen if it weren’t for our body’s store of buffers. Organic buffers such as calcium, magnesium and potassium along with other minerals are found in abundance in our bones, teeth, organs and tissues. Think of it this way, the food you eat and the beverages you drink can either deposit alkalizing buffers or remove them from your store. If this were your bank account, it wouldn’t take long to deplete your savings if you only took withdrawals. Conversely, only making deposits and never taking money out would make you quite rich. The same can be said for your health. No one on their deathbed ever wished for more riches, all most dying people want is more time.

Food For Thought

Our experience is not so much about what we do, but rather, the quality of who.

Our experience is not so much about what we do, but rather, the quality of who we are. Not what we think, but how we think and how we act upon those thoughts. Free will and choice are our God given right. The only thing we can ever control is our choice to be happy or unhappy. In this time of polarization and turmoil on our planet finding the center within ourselves seems to be the only sane thing to do. I teach people to be more centered with food. But that is only one piece of the puzzle. To move from a place of judgement into a place of unattached observation and understanding. To know that every breath is a gift. Every person, every drop of water, every blade of grass is a miracle. I do not normally quote the Bible, however, I will share this quote because it speaks to the point I am trying to make.

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.
