The Truth About Cancer

The Truth About Cancer

I was awake for early this morning and finished watching episode 6 of the video documentary series The Truth About Cancer by Ty Bollinger – with 29 Doctors, 11 Scientists and 9 Survivors.

This episode was about diet, nutrition and what to eat to heal cancer and not feed cancer – yes feed cancer cells.

Guess what they live off of?? Sugar.

What is in most of our foods today especially packaged, man made foods?

Sugar

Do you ever question why things have come about?

I have and not a lot makes sense to me.

Like today, being Easter, if you are religious it’s about Jesus rising from the dead ( and more).

It’s about Springtime,new flowers, new beginnings.

How the heck did an Easter bunny get involved and copious amounts of sugar??

Could it be a major marketing, promoting, buying for profits thing?

Just like Santa Claus – Cocoa Cola invented him, another huge profit making time of year and sugar, over indulgence feast on many levels.

Kind of makes you shake your head and wonder doesn’t it??!!

Anyways, I’ll step down off my soap box – just had to share this video – I think the information in these videos is important, crucial in this day and age and everyone should be watching them – so please share them!!

No there is no affiliate link – just a huge desire to help start waking people up – our bodies are an amazing thing – when the right environment is given!!

Have a Happy Easter – enjoy the moment, the day, the people and even the food – create memories that last, laugh more,love more and be a little kid like today!!

Live well

With Gratitude

They are tastier and easier than you think to eat!!

since being on the road there are a few things I am so grateful for!!

One is the preparing ahead of time and bringing some healthy foods / snacks with us as there was nothing and I mean NOTHING at any gas stations or stops to eat – yes there was a ton of junk or franken foods but NO REAL FOODS – how sad.

We even stopped by a grocery store in that had NO fresh food – their produce section was being fixed or redone – the whole thing – so nothing in that store was fresh or alive!!!

the other thing that has made travelling easy is our Purium products – yes I am definitely going to promote them here as not only are they alive, vegan ,organic and non-gmo when none of those things we could find, but also handy, dried (yes still live as they were dried at very low temperatures) but also convenient.

So instead of settling for the crap, fake processed foods on the shelves – we have been able to stick with Whole foods and Superfoods that are live and fresh – Purium and not as we planned ahead,more prepared, didn’t give into temptation, laziness, excuses plus we know how crappy, gassy and bloated we would feel eating anything but!!

its truly incredible when you really start feeding the body instead of just eating how good you can feel – most of us don’t know how good we can feel and its pretty amazing and keeps getting better!!!!

A quick and easy and oh my so tasty salad we threw together one night after attending the locals farmers market.

– fresh mustard greens

– fresh mixed sprouts

– toasted fresh pecans in coconut oil (usually I use Tamari for roasting / toasting nuts) this was

the first time I used Coconut oil and it tasted amazing!!

– chopped dried black olives

– Coconut cheese – yes coconut – it was yummy

– Spirulina (sprinkled on – yes Purium)

– very high quality cold pressed olive oil and balsamic vinegar lightly poured over the salad

We also created a side dish of Guacamole with herbs, lemon juice, himalayan salt, garlic and spirulina.

Easy, quick, tasty and nutrient dense and oh yeah real whole foods – eating healthy made easy!!

Famous saying goes: “We are what we eat”, or really what we can assimilate. The more you eat sugar, hydrogenated oils and processed foods as an example, the unhealthier your body becomes.   Even though you might not sense the negative changes immediately, you can be sure that your body will charge you later on for being neglectful.  Basically, key is with starting new, healthier ways of eating (not dieting) is to try to add more greens as much as possible.

Sometimes also changing little things that we eat daily or often can make a huge difference – ie if you drink diet pop, switch to just plain pop as the sweetener is sugar (most times) and not an artificial one, then maybe go to juice instead as it has less chemicals, then maybe add in more water (after all we are more than 70% water).  Instead of getting fires as a side order a salad – these seemingly little things can make a huge difference in your health and your weight.

Green vegetables and leafy greens are healthy but have you ever considered more Greens?

www.jodiburke.com Greens like in Kamut, Barley, Wheat Grass, Spirulina and Chlorella.  They are loaded with Chlorophyll and Enzymes which is what our modern day diets are void of mostly!!

Chlorophyll is actually a green pigment found in plants, which serves its purpose of turning the solar energy into useful nutrients which plants use for food. Those nutrients created by using the energy of sun are actually as useful for us, as well as for plants. Although humans can’t use photosynthesis to create food, as plants do, eating plants rich in chlorophyll can help us heal our body and enhance our health. The greener they are, the more chlorophyll it has contained, which is great – it’s more alive – just like you and the more alive foods you eat the more alive you will feel and become!!

Foods with high concentration of chlorophyll are dark green. Green foods are rich in minerals, calcium, magnesium, vitamins and many other things that the body needs for optimum health.

In our modern day society supplements are often pushed on us instead of real foods, superfoods or herbs that have been around for centuries.  The body knows how to digest and utilize these foods easily and properly.

The body can heal itself when given the right environment.

There is so much I could write here about Green foods and Superfoods but instead why not share the passion and knowledge of a great leader who has done much research and worked with 1000’s of people to show that using these foods does work from the results people are getting.

Greens, Greens, The More You Eat……….

Greens, Greens, The More You Eat……the better You Feel so eat your greens at every meal!!!there There is no better time than summertime to do this!
With all the fresh, different foods in season it is so easy to eat healthier and feel better. Yes the sunshine, being outside, taking holidays and more exercise all help that is for sure, but the difference in food does make a big difference in how one feels.

Since it’s mid summer and I know from going to the local markets that there are so many greens, herbs, veggies and fruit available right now, how about trying some different things.
First venture out and try some new veggies and greens that maybe you haven’t had in awhile or have never tried.
Or, try mixing new ones together instead of the same old same old. Now is the perfect time to experiment and keep it easy.
Here are a few suggestions for different types of salads:

Cucumber salad with salsa…..put some pieces of leaf lettuce on a plate with sliced up cucumbers on top and add fresh salsa on top of the cucumbers…….enjoy

Mixed greens with fennel and a fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing

Take the salad you usually make and add in a bunch of fresh different herbs – basil, parsley, cilantro, mint or whatever else you can think of!!

Diced up tomates, cucumbers and avocados on head lettuce, choose an oil & vinegar or just eat plain, you could also throw in some sunflower seeds.

Arugula, fennel and strawberries make an interesting combination with lots of ground pepper (believe it or not it brings out the flavor of strawberries even more but make sure it’s freshly ground)

Watermelon & Olive Tapenade Salad – greens, cut up watermelon, mixed olive tapenade, lemon juice and a nice vinaigrette

Spinach, mushrooms, thinly sliced red onion with either chopped up apple or strawberries with a little grated cheese (if you want a brie is nice) and a oil & balsamic vinegar

Hey, keep it going, you’re only limited by your imagination…….eat healthy and enjoy it!!!

To Your Health
