Roasted Red Pepper Soup, Fat-burning Chicken Salad, Avocado Chocolate Pudding And More…Yum!

 

Wondering what to eat this weekend? Here are some healthy and yummy sounding recipes to try….

 

Fire Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Instead of opening up some canned soup, make a soup with raw organic vegetables in the blender, instead. The blades of a blender (especially a Vitamix) move so quickly they heat the soup. You can have a piping hot, one-dish meal ready in less time than it takes to find the can opener! Here’s one of my favorites:

Serves 2

Ingredients:

2 large organic tomatoes, halved
4 fire-roasted red peppers
1 cup coconut milk
4 leaves fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

Blend tomatoes, red peppers, coconut milk, fresh basil and garlic powder in a hi-speed blender. If using a Vitamix, blend until hot (about 5-6 minutes). Top with pepitas, fresh basil, and a splash of coconut cream, if desired.

FYI, the page where I found this soup also had several other interesting sounding recipes, including one for sweet curry noodles (using “zoodles,” aka spiralized zucchini noodles) and sweet potato black bean wraps.

And how about this chicken salad recipe from danettemay.com that supposedly helps you burn fat, rather than pack it on?

INGREDIENTS:

6 oz. cubed chicken breast

1/2 c. sliced celery

1/2 c. small cubed apple pieces

1/4 c. sliced, small cubed onion

2 tsp. cumin spice

salt and pepper to taste

And after you’ve burned some fat with the chicken salad, reward yourself with this chocolate avocado pudding recipe from Activation Products that you can literally whip up in a minute or two 🙂

 

This is our favorite kind of sweet treat. Equal parts creamy deliciousness and healthy nutrition!

It’s quick and easy to whip up, but even the time it takes to blend will have you drooling with anticipation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 ripe California avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1/3 cup quality organic cocoa powder (made from 100% pure cacao)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut milk
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp flax oil
  • Raspberries and mint leaves for garnish

Directions:

  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Garnish with raspberries and mint before serving.

A few benefits of these delicious ingredients:

  • Avocados: These creamy, satisfying fruits are very high in healthy fats, including oleic acid (a.k.a. omega-9), which can reduce inflammation. They also contain significant amounts of vitamins B5, B6, C, E and K and are high in potassium, which can balance blood pressure levels, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and improve kidney health.
  • Cocoa powder: Calcium and potassium are among the nutrients present in cocoa powder, in addition to plenty of antioxidants. Cocoa can help to lower bad cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of clogged arteries and balance blood pressure.
  • Raw honey: This “liquid gold” is used in many natural healing solutions, such as cough suppressants and sleep aids as it has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It also supports your immune system.
  • Coconut milk: Wholesome and delicious, coconut milk is high in fiber, and contains vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6, C and E, in addition to minerals such as selenium, iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
  • Flaxseeds are one of nature’s most powerful sources of nutrition and contain essential omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to health. The oil supports the cardiovascular system and the digestive system, as well as eye health and blood sugar balance. It even maintains healthy hormonal balance.
  • Raspberries: Always a favorite, these tart and tasty berries possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making them great for weight loss, immune system support and even pain relief. They are also high in potassium and other minerals, making them great for controlling heart rate and managing blood pressure.
  • Mint: Mint can offer relief from indigestion and inflammation as well as nausea and headaches. It can also stimulate digestive enzymes that can help you to lose weight.

Extend Your Life Expectancy? Take A Hint From South Korea!

 

Did you know the life expectancy for people living in the US is declining and the level of health here lags behind that of most other countries? Plus, according to a recent study, we have the highest infant and maternal mortality rates of any of the countries in study, AND the highest obesity rate.

If you are concerned about these statistics, you may want to start mirroring some of the habits of the South Korean people, including having a diet rich in probiotics and fermented foods…..

 


 Life Expectancy Projected to Soar — Except

in the US

By Dr. Mercola

For the first time in 20 years, life expectancy has actually declined in the U.S.,1,2,3,4 dropping from 76.5 years in 2014 to 76.3 in 2015 for men, and from 81.3 to 81.2 for women. This means American women now die, on average, about one month earlier than they did in 2014, and men lost about two months of lifespan.5

In all, there were 86,212 more deaths in 2015 compared to 2014, and as of 2015, the U.S. ranks 29th out of 43 countries for life expectancy,6 lagging behind countries like Chile, Costa Rica, Slovenia, Korea and the Czech Republic. In 2014, the U.S. ranked 28th.7

Moreover, according to Dr. Peter Muennig, a professor of health policy and management at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, this decline in life expectancy is a “uniquely American phenomenon.” No other developed countries experienced this decline.

Dr. Jiaquan Xu, the report’s lead author, noted the decline in life expectancy is primarily caused by a rise in several categories of preventable deaths,8 again highlighting the failure of the American health care system to properly address the root causes of chronic disease.

Meanwhile, both dietary patterns and health care availability in South Korea — which has made some of the greatest life expectancy gains — offer valuable hints at what Americans need to do to change course.

Analysis Suggests South Koreans May Soon Outlive the Rest of the World

Another extensive analysis9 of longevity patterns in 35 industrialized nations projects life expectancy at birth in the U.S. will continue to lag, such that by 2030, it will be on par with the Czech Republic, Croatia and Mexico.10,11,12

Meanwhile, South Koreans of both sexes and Hungarian men and have made the greatest life expectancy gains. By 2030, South Korean women are projected to have an average lifespan of 90.8, making it the first nation to break the 90-year life expectancy barrier.

This is a significant feat, considering South Korea ranked 29th for women’s life expectancy in 1985.13 As for the cause of the U.S.’ failure to keep pace, The Washington Post notes:14

“The reasons for the United States’ lag are well known. It has the highest infant and maternal mortality rates of any of the countries in the study, and the highest obesity rate.

It is the only one without universal health insurance coverage and has the ‘largest share of unmet health care needs due to financial costs,’ the researchers wrote …

In contrast to the United States, South Korea ‘has a remarkable investment in early childhood nutrition,’ has been taking advantage of medical advances and technology across its population and has some of the world’s lowest obesity and hypertension rates …

‘They seem to be getting a lot of things right at the same time, and getting them right for almost everyone,’ [lead author Majid Ezzati] said.”

Differences in Diet Offer Valuable Clues

Japan has long been noted for its longevity, but that’s starting to change as Western dietary influences have crept in. Again and again, we see health outcomes decline when countries adopt a Western style diet with processed foods as a staple.

Meanwhile, South Korea’s use of nutritional supplements, especially probiotics for both adults and infants has risen, and their fermented food and omega-3 intake is among the highest in the world. In my view, this is what you would call a major clue.

Research15 published last year showed South Korea, along with Japan, the Primorskry region of Russia, Denmark, Norway and Greenland and a few other indigenous regions had the highest blood levels of the animal-based omega-3 fats eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) — the latter of which is a primary structural component of every cell in your body.

Americans and Canadians both have “very low” levels, which may increase the risk of chronic disease. Use of vitamins and dietary supplements in South Korea also rose by 4 percent in 2016, and probiotic sales rose by 7 percent.

According to Euromonitor, “these products are increasingly seen as essential consumer health items among South Koreans.”16 South Koreans also consume 2 million tons of kimchi each year — a traditional dish of fermented cabbage. As noted in a previous Food First article:17

“[K]imchi is the one food that most Koreans simply ‘cannot live without.’18 … [It] seems to make its way into every meal of the day. In autumn, South Korean employers even give their workers a customary ‘kimchi bonus,’ helping to subsidize the ingredients for their annual kimchi supply.19

Considering that most Americans eat a primarily processed food diet, high in sugars and low in healthy fats, fiber and fermented foods, it shouldn’t come as a major shock that life expectancy might suffer.

Advertisements might lead you to believe this processed fare will give you all the nutrition you need for a long and happy life, but your body cannot be fooled.

Chronic Illness and Opioid Addiction Take Toll on Americans

The cost of health care in the U.S. is also the highest in the world, and continues to rise. Health care now accounts for 17 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).20 But even though the U.S. spends more than $3 trillion on health care each year, it is the worst performing system ranked by multiple aspects of care.21

Recent research also reveals HALF of all Americans live with chronic illness,22 and in my view, this has everything to do with diet. According to study authors Elizabeth Reisinger Walker, Ph.D., an assistant research professor, and Dr. Benjamin Druss, professor at Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University:23

“The health of individuals in the [USA] is increasingly being defined by complexity and multi-morbidity, the co-occurrence of two or more chronic medical conditions.”

Addiction to opioid painkillers appears to be another significant contributor to declining life expectancy in the U.S.24,25 Deaths from synthetic opioids, including fentanyl, rose by a whopping 73 percent between 2014 and 2015. Prescription pain killers alone killed 17,536 people last year.

According to Robert Anderson, who oversees death statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: “I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like this. Certainly not in modern times.”

Hugs = Good Medicine, Plus A Sweet Idea In Honor of Valentine’s Day

 

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I would pass along some results from a study on hugs, plus information on the “hug acupressure point” from Michael Reed Gach of Acupressure.com. What could be easier to do and more fun to give or receive than a hug?! Please use this self-help health tool often and with abandon.

And check out Cooking Without Limit’s sweet breakfast idea for your honey at the end of the post. If you don’t have a honey at the moment, I say fix these heart-shaped waffles for yourself! 🙂

 

 

Hug Your Way to Health

Did you know that the more hugs you get, the better your immune system?

In a new study more than 400 healthy adults were exposed to a cold virus and quarantined. The findings? Those who reported getting the fewest hugs in their daily lives were more likely to suffer from severe cold symptoms.

While greater conflict was also linked to a greater likelihood of infection for those getting few hugs, those who were hugged the most were protected from infection even when they had conflicts. So theory suggests that hugs boost immunity by buffering stress.

And here’s a fascinating story and a testament to the power of the human touch and cuddling:

Acupressure is an effective way for me to give and serve others. If I am not giving, I begin to feel depressed and experience a lack of purpose in life.  However, when I give Acupressure to myself or others – I feel released and fulfilled.

Love, Serve & Heal. This month is a great time to focus on giving because Valentine’s Day is approaching soon.  I much rather give a person Acupressure than send a Valentine’s card. Better yet, when it’s appropriate I love to give hugs.

Hugs stimulate all kinds of Acupressure points like CV17, the Sea of Tranquility located in the center of the breastbone. CV17 is an emotional healing point which opens the chest and relieves, difficulty breathing, chest tightness and anxiety.

Full embraces are so healing. Hugs press points that open your heart, expand your breath and transmit healing energy.

And to end on,  a sweet idea from Cooking Without Limits…..

 

gab_5483_res_mix

This post is for men or women that don’t cook a lot or at all, but they want to do something special for their loved ones. For some, Valentine’s Day is a challenge. Buying something nice, flowers, presents, something to prove their love, but when you don’t have a lot of money, it is difficult. My advice is go simple. You never cook or maybe just usually do something simple like coffee, tea or toast. Don’t despair.

Try something easy. Start the morning with a beautiful surprise. Make her/him waffles the way you like it: gluten-free, sugar-free, eggs-free or full sugar, gluten and eggs. If you don’t know how to make it, just buy them. Use a cookie cutter in the shape of a heart and make small hearts.

Use blueberries or other fruits. Add a cup of coffee or tea and a flower. Yes, one flower. Bring the breakfast to them in bed and you have won her/his heart early in the morning.

So easy! So simple! But, so beautiful!

Repeat this every day! 😉

OMG! Rejected Skittles Being Fed To Cows! What The H…..?!

 

Well, even with all the dangerous, scary and bizarre things going on with our food system these days, this post has a title I never thought I’d be writing! What’s even scarier is you know there’s much more of the kind of thing this post mentions going on than anyone is aware of or admitting. If it hadn’t been for the rain causing the Skittles to spill we would all probably still be in the dark about this. Please read and share……this is alarming on so many levels!

 

CBS: Millions Of Skittles Not Fit For Human Consumption Secretly Given as Cattle Feed

If you needed MORE proof that factory farms are raising “food” you shouldn’t feed your family: 

Last week there was an odd spill on a rural highway in Wisconsin: red Skittles. However, even odder than the spill was the fact that some Mars Inc. factories sell their discarded candy as cattle feed.

RELATED LINK: Eating these cows can triple your rate of breast cancer.

The sheriff posted the picture of the spill to his Facebook account explaining that thousands of Skittles had been found spilled on a rural highway. He later updated his post (see above) when he found out where the candy was headed and how it had spilled,  “Due to it raining at the time, the box got wet and gave way allowing the Skittles to spill out on the roadway. It is reported that the Skittles were intended to be feed for cattle as they did not make the cut for packaging at the company. In the end these Skittles are actually for the Birds!”

Mars Inc. apparently has procedures for discarding “food” that isn’t fit for human consumption and claims that while some factories do sell unused product for animal feed, the factory in question normally doesn’t. In the case of these candies, the article reports:

“Company spokeswoman Denise Young said the Skittles were supposed to be destroyed because a power outage prevented the signature “S’’ from being placed on the candies. She said Mars planned to contact the sheriff’s office and the farmer to find out more.”

But don’t worry, a cattle nutritionist explained that food byproducts get used for cattle feed depending on what’s available in a given region and at a particular time during the year. In this case, the cattle wouldn’t have eaten JUST the Skittles, they would have been mixed with other ingredients to assure a certain nutritional profile. However, let’s be clear if Skittles is part of a “nutritional profile,” it’s not food I want to eat. Why? Because it’s not healthy- not for me and certainly not for a cow. Unless you ask an animal nutrition expert.

According to John Waller, a professor of animal nutrition at the University of Tennessee, a candy-based diet for cattle is fine. In fact, it takes care of two issues at one time; it keeps fat material from going into the landfills and it’s a nutrient source for cattle.

This “science” boggles the mind. Really.

Everyone should be aware of this. Please forward this. Cows shouldn’t EVER be eating Skittles. EVER.

The Power Of The Mind, Plus How Subliminals Can Put It To Work For You

 

I’ve already done a couple of posts that touch on the placebo effect and the part the mind plays in creating health or dis-ease, but the studies sited in this article made me even more aware of how powerful the mind is when it comes to our health. Just think about getting the benefits of exercising without exercising, learning a new sport “by mind,” or people acting and feeling years younger when put in a special environment. The mind really IS a terrible thing to waste.

Can Your Mind Heal Your Body?

Do your thoughts affect your physical body? If ever you have been embarrassed and experienced your face flushing and turning red, you have experienced a simple example of how your mind affected the physiology for your body.  What if your thoughts were focused on past or future events that made you feel anxious or stressed? Could that have an impact on your health? Absolutely!

The stress response that our body is equipped with was a protective mechanism that allowed us to run from the tiger or be very watchful in our natural environment thousands of years ago. Animals also have this innate flight or fight mechanism. The difference between us and a deer that was just chased by a coyote, is that the deer goes back to grazing and does not recall that stressful event over and over.

As humans we have that ability to recall past events along with ALL the emotions that we recall experiencing during that stressful event. A blow out with co-worker, a flat tire, a financial disaster, a dispute with your spouse, etc… When we recall those in our mind or we imagine future events that might occur based on our past experiences, we stimulate that stress response over and over again.

Stress increases cortisol, increases glucose in the blood stream, increases inflammation and paralyzes your immune system.

So if your thoughts can make you sick, can your thoughts actually make you well? Scientists have proven that they can. Here are a few examples:

People who imagined going to the gym for 30 minutes per day and imagined working specific muscle groups had a physical increase in muscle strength and muscle size, without putting a foot in the gym.

*Imagining playing piano and practicing certain keys and chords had just as much of an impact as someone who physically practiced the chords.

*Personal Note: I have a friend who taught herself to ski by this same method

A group of 70-80 year old men went to a retreat in a monastery where the environment brought them back 22 years – the music, the TV shows, the food, etc.…After 5 days, the men showed measurable signs of age reversals, genetic changes, improved joint flexibility and even giving up walkers and canes.

Imagine how your body could react if you spent at least 30 minutes per day, rehearsing in your mind what it would feel like to be 20 years younger, full of energy and radiant health? How would you feel knowing that your body had no more signs of dis-ease and joy was your new norm? Science has proven that our thoughts affect our biology MORE than the external factors do.

Tune in to your innate intelligence in your body and use it to make powerful changes in your health!

All About The Placebo Effect And How It Can Help You Heal

Be An Air Force Pilot! What?

And speaking of the power of the mind, have any of you tried using subliminals for losing weight, experiencing better sleep,  increasing your energy, or overcoming food addictions/cravings? If not, then maybe you should, because subliminals offer an easy, effortless way to address issues such as these and more,  even as you work on the computer! And they have been proven by science to work…….

(image from wisegeek.com)

Subliminal messages provide a unique method for influencing not only your health, but all areas of your life and well-being. They have the ability to by-pass the conscious mind and go straight to the subconscious, and that’s important because it’s been found that 80 to 90% of the time it’s actually your subconscious mind that’s “running (and possibly ruining) the show.” So implementing change there is where you can rewrite and improve you thinking and mental programming at the deepest level. This allows for significant change in breaking bad habits, increasing concentration, boosting the immune system and so much more!

It has been known for years that changing a person’s behavior can be accomplished more successfully by going directly to the subconscious, thereby getting around the filter of the conscious mind, and allowing change to take place without any real effort on the part of the individual.It’s been written that the subconscious is not only “a million times more powerful than the conscious mind,” but thought to be the true control center behind what you really think and believe, so it just makes good sense to focus your attention there when trying to improve your life and implement change. That’s where you can make the most headway in the shortest amount of time when it comes to  eliminating limiting beliefs and old programming that keep you from creating the best life possible.

With subliminals you can simply relax and let the desired messages/information be stored and remembered in the subconscious without any effort on your part. You can even be doing something else at the  same time, like working on the computer. Typing an e-mail AND changing your life at the same time. How cool is that?! Multi-tasking at its best that can really pay off big time! The subliminal messages flash for  only a millisecond on the computer screen, but have lasting results…..you’re not even aware of them, but your subconscious mind is taking them all in and rewriting your life story in the process. How does it get any better than that?

Interested in giving this “brain-bending” technology a try? I have used several different subliminal programs over the years, but about 4 months ago I got a new one that has quickly become my favorite because it was so quick and easy to set up and use, offers so many different options (audio subliminals, custom created scripts, brainwave entrainment and subliminal MP3s), and comes with a library of 350 sessions/pre-written scripts on everything possible.

You can work on health issues, bad habits, attracting more money/success, learning a new language, overcoming phobias, performing better at sports, improving relationships, you name it! I have been using it for all sorts of things and have also created several custom scripts to work on specific dental and skin issues. I actually have become an affiliate for the program because, after using it for just a short period of time, I knew I wanted to be telling others about it.  AND right now the company is running a special, so I wanted to let everyone who’s interested know. You can go to my What’s New page to find out more about the program and  free bonuses and $50 off being offered, and it comes with a 1 year money back guarantee (what?!), so now is really the time to check things out.

FYI: EMF Update On New Cell Phones

 

I am what I would call a “low tech” person…..I don’t use a cell phone, tablet, iPad or anything other than a good ole laptop or PC. Plus, I recently took a week off from technology in general, which is almost impossible these days. I did use the computer, but as minimally as possible.

Anyway, I know I’m the exception, not the norm, and that there are a lot of people out there that want whatever the latest “new, best, fastest thing” is, so I think it’s good for everyone to be aware that those “plus” items almost always come with their own set of “minuses,” but you’ll never hear the companies that sell the products mention those. This article from Dr. Desaulniers, who is a breast cancer survivor, does a good job of listing some of the things all you techies should at least be aware of about the new technologies……

EMF Update: New Cellphone Threats in 2017

One of the big selling points for new cell phones on the market today are upgrades to technology which allow devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 to “fast charge” using “Qi” technology, portable wireless charging pads designed for small devices such as cellphones. Wireless charging stations can charge phones in about half the time as “plug in” devices and save on wear and tear to internal plug-in ports.

But do these conveniences come at a price to your health?

Is Wireless Charging Safe?

.

“Qi” uses electromagnetic fields to transfer power between the cellphone and the pad. This process, also called “induction,” was invented by Nicola Tesla over 100 years ago.

Industry organizations, such as the  “Wireless Power Consortium,” have declared “Qi” wireless charging technology to be safe because it uses “tight coil wiring,” which supposedly produces less EMF emissions.

Other experts beg to differ. In 2011, the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared cell phones and WiFi in general to be “Group 2B Possible Carcinogens,” possible cancer-causing agents.

In 2016, the US Department of Health and Human Services National Toxicology Program announced findings of a study that directly linked cellphone use to cancer. Other studies have made the connection time and again between close-range cellphone use, brain cancer and breast cancer.

Wireless Tabletops

Qi wireless “pad” technology is just the beginning of a new wave of surface-area charging options for 2017. Other devices use rezence technology, which utilizes magnetic resonance. Rezence is found in desktops, tabletops and even entire kitchen counter tops: you simply put your computer or other compatible device on the surface and, voila, instant charge. Wireless tabletops are beginning to appear in US Starbuck’s, in McDonald’s in Britain and in some new car models.

The real danger of rezence technology lies in its ability to provide wireless at long distances; much of this technology can connect devices from over 20 feet away. Once these chargers find a connection, they send out radio-frequency signals. The amount of “free-flowing power” produced by tabletop charging is a lot more than regular WiFi, according to some industry insiders.

“I don’t think I would want to be in a room with free moving power signals,” said one wireless tech executive in a recent interview.

Integrated Bluetooth technologies in desktop chargers as well as in other new devices such as wireless headphones (the new iPhones no longer have headphone jacks), iWatches and Fitbits add another dimension to the EMF risk, especially for the millions of individuals who wear these devices all day long.

On the horizon: 5G

In July, 2016, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the construction of a nation-wide “5G” cellphone network. 5G utilizes “millimeter waves” which operate at a much higher frequency than 2, 3, or 4G. Millimeter waves also can’t penetrate building walls as readily, leading to the speculation that one 5G “antennae base” may eventually be needed for every 12 homes.

Some in the EMF Safety community, such as Dr. Joel Moskowitz of the UC-Berkeley School of Public Health, express concerns that not only will millimeter waves have a more harmful effect on human tissue, they may also effect bacteria and protozoa, putting the very building blocks of our natural world at risk. The full conversion of existing cell towers to be “5G compatible” is still a few years away; it is not too late to express your opposition to this harmful technology upgrade, which many individuals and organizations around the country are choosing to do.

Get Protected 

Reducing your exposure to EMFs through turning off devices at night and keeping sensitive body parts such as the breasts and brain away from cellphones and other WiFi devices is the easiest thing you can do to protect yourself and your family from the onslaught of new EMF threats. Sometimes exposure to EMF is unavoidable though. In this case, consider utilizing EMF protection technology. In my experience, the most reliable and scientifically-based EMF protection devices out there can be found through *Gia Wellness. This is the only company that has patented technology and scientific studies proving the protective effects of their products against EMFs. My home, my electronics, my cell phone and my body are protected with this high-tech resonance technology.

*Personal Note: I am not familiar w/ Gia Wellness, but it’s nice to know that’s what Dr. Desaulniers recommends. Personally, I use the Vibes Up products a lot to help off-set EMFs and other non-beneficial energies.

Also, someone left a comment on Dr Desaulniers article that had this useful info……

“….., thank you for educating the public on the need to use technology safely. The best solution is to use hard-wired Internet connections with the device in airplane mode. This cuts off the radiation, and also gives a much faster and more reliable connection. For those just learning all wi-fi operates off of unshielded two-way microwave radiation, and that it is biologically hazardous, you are welcome to view this five-part cable series, The Dangers of Wi-Fi. Folks find it very informative and down-to-earth in its delivery. Each video averages a half-hour, and under each episode on YouTube you will find links to important information. Thank you for your time and consideration. tinyurl.com/Dangers-of-Wi-Fi
