Life Giving Foods vs. Life Robbing Foods!

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? You might be asking how I distinguish between life giving foods and life robbing foods.

This past week I had the great pleasure to listen to a very wise woman share her plight into traditional eating and the reason was her sick young daughter.

You see, most mothers (and fathers) become fierce momma or papa bears when our young are sick or ill, don’t we?

We want to find out what exactly is wrong and then do everything in our power to make them better.

I know I’ve done this over the years with my own daughters and now with my grandchildren. When they don’t feel well, we’re digging and fixing!

If you’re shopping for and consuming prepackaged and commercialized food products from your local grocery, you are consuming life robbing foods.

There is a list of 10 major life robbing foods that I’d like to share that you should NEVER eat and then I’ll share the list of life giving foods.

Foods you should NEVER EVER eat….

1. GMO Foods

(Corn, Soy, Sugar, Aspartame, Papaya, Canola Oil, Cotton Oil, Commercial Dairy, Zucchini, Yellow Squash)

2. Processed Meats

(Lunch meats, hotdogs, sausages, bacon)

3. Microwave Popcorn

4. Soft Drinks

5. Diet Beverages

6. Refined White Flours

7. Refined Sugars

8. Conventional “Dirty” Produce (see EWG’s Dirty Dozen listing here)

9. Farmed Salmon

10. Hydrogenated Oils (canola, shortening, vegetable oils)

(Most baked goods use these oils)

Whew….that’s a list isn’t it?

Now would you like the list of foods that are living giving and good for you? It’s my pleasure to present them!

1. Bone Broths

2. Raw Milk

3. Yogurt

4. Kefir

5. Grass-fed Beef, Pork, Lamb

6. Pastured poultry (chicken, turkey)

7. Sourdough Bread

8. Pastured Eggs

9. Fresh fruits and veggies (preferably organic)

10. Soaked grains, nuts, seeds, beans

11. Fermented veggies, fruits and teas

Yum!!! This is the food items that I adore! When foods are properly grown, prepared and eaten, they give life and they taste absolutely delicious!

Often times in conversations, it comes about that “healthy” doesn’t taste good. Well, have I got news for you. When you eat the “life giving” foods I outlined above, your whole body sings, including your mouth!

Every cell is awakened and having a party and rejoicing! One of my clients recently shared how she’s feeling just after two weeks of consuming Kombucha (fermented tea) and Bone broths. The results are amazing and she’s seeing the proof.

Guess what else is amazing? She’s telling everyone that will listen. Why? Because when you’ve struggled with something like IBS for so long and you don’t have control over what your body does, and all of a sudden you are given a glimpse of normal and vibrant living, you feel fabulous, you look fabulous, people notice and you sing!

Isn’t it time to take back your health and your life? Do you feel doomed to just suffer through? Or perhaps you’ve tried so many things and nothing seems to work.

It really isn’t your fault. You just need a fresh start, some sound guidance, a good roadmap to follow to your destination, which is great health, energy, sound sleep, vibrant vitality and the feelings of being youthful and sexy again.

I really don’t believe we were put on this planet to suffer. We are created of a higher power and image and that image isn’t one of a broken down body that suffers needlessly.

Genetic Roulette – Are you playing it?

Genetic Roulette

Last night I spent an incredible evening watching this power documentary called Genetic Roulette.

Genetic Roulette is a powerful documentary that I believe many are playing without knowing it or your consent. Watch a short clip here.

When you spin the wheel, the odds are not in your favor, typically. Think of a roulette wheel in a casino. The dealer spins the wheel, you place your bet and hope and pray that the ball bounces into your number slot so that you can hit pay dirt.

What if there was such a wheel in the game we call life? What do you think the odds would be if you were to bet on your health?

The irony is…there is! You see, what companies like Monsanto don’t want you to know is they are playing with your health and your life. You know me as “The Gut Lady” and that’s because I mainly focus on gut health.

Most illness and disease can be attributed to poor gut health. Poor gut health can be attributed to the foods and drinks that we consume on a regular basis. Things like environment, toxins and chemicals also play a role.

Where does that bring in Monsanto? They are the dynamo that produces GM (Genetically Modified) seeds and GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) that will withstand being sprayed with Roundup, a harsh and deadly chemical.

Did you know that there are other chemicals at war too? Things like BT, (Bacillus thuringiensis) which literally is designed to make an insect that chews on a plant, in short, explode from the inside out.

The sad truth is this….you are ingesting these chemicals too. If it can explode an insect, what’s it doing to you on the inside? While Monsanto claims that it’s completely safe for humans and animals, why then are so many people and animals leaking from their guts? Why are there so many health issues abound that weren’t here before?

If you go back into history and look at what the FDA states about such chemical use for humans, none of this was readily approved because there weren’t sufficient trials done to prove safe consumption.

Yet, today, these chemicals are still on the market and they are getting worse. The next one waiting approval is an “Agent Orange” (2,4-D) chemical. Think the Vietnam War and the devastation that happened when this chemical warfare took place.

You can’t tell me this is good for our plants, our soil, our animals, our bodies.

When you consume pre-packaged and processed foods, while there are only a couple handfuls of genetically modified plants, 70% of the food on the grocery shelves are derivatives of these GM products on the market today and you’re consuming them.

My strongest statement to you today is this….back away from the table, very slowly.

Take a good strong look at the foods you are consuming and purchasing. If it’s not organic, not fresh whole foods, it’s tainted and it’s making you sick. It’s wreaking havoc with your gut, your hormones, and your body in general.

Our babies are born with toxins in their guts that they weren’t ever exposed to except through the womb. Think about that for a second. What this means is that we don’t necessarily have to consume a particular toxin, just be exposed to it.

While you’re mulling all of this information over, I implore you to clean up your life. I know you’re accustomed to buying whatever you’re marketed to as the latest greatest and it’s the best thing for you.

Really, it’s not. They (big AG and Grocers) are making huge amounts of money from you. Why, because we’re gullible). We believe what they tell us.

The biggest thing you can do for you is go get the documentary Genetic Roulette and watch it for yourself and then make your own conclusions.

It’s eye opening and I know this stuff. So I can only imagine what a newbie to this information will think. I hope it’s enough to get you to take action. Buy organic and clean up your diet and lifestyle.

Really your life does depend on it. Not only yours, but unborn babies and our children and grandchildren. We have the ability to lay a solid foundation for them. We have the ability to get smart and take action. Do it now, before it’s too late.

Action step #1:Go buy the documentary, it’s affordable and priceless!

Action step #2:Clean up your food intake and your health, stop buying and consuming GM and GMO products.

Did I say it would be easy….no! Are all good things worth having worth it? Absolutely and if you want or need accountability and a solid plan to make this happen, I’m you’re best option.

When you wait until you’ve made a solid decision, I find that you keep waiting and don’t implement. I know this is true for me. I’m a ‘ducks in a row’ kind of girl. I wait until everything is just right.

Sometimes this gets me into trouble and I miss the boat. What does this look like for you? Will you keep suffering from poor health; keep running back to the doctor because you’re still suffering?

How bad does your health and life quality need to get before you decide to do something about it? I really do wonder why you settle for less than you were created for.

Empower yourself and your family. Take action today. Make this the first day of the rest of your life!

I truly understand that it’s hard; I’ve been right where you are. I reached out for help and it’s the best decision I ever made, hands down.
