As your Superfood chef, I feel an obligation to all my followers to give you the knowledge that was bestowed on me. We are faced with so many challenged these days, our food should not be one of them ,it’s our right to speak up for ourselves and demand a better standard of food- not to be poisoned, polluted and forced to live with disease.
Today most of our babies are fed corn syrup in the first months of their lives (check your baby formula for ingredient list) Genetically Modified Food corn syrup which these days is the first ingredient in formula causes many health complications, Jeffrey M. Smith author of the book “Seed of deception” links GM food to toxins, allergies, infertility, infant mortality, immune dysfunction, stunted growth, and death. He also writes about how the “FDA withheld information from Congress after a genetically modified supplement killed nearly a hundred people and disabled thousands”. Our animals are treated with hormones to grow faster, bigger, fatter. Just like us fatter, bigger and completely disengaged for any kind of compassion for these animals that feed us. The food and drug association and Monsanto’s are the food mafia; they are poising us to line their pockets with gold.
It the year 2012 when Mayan civilization predicted the end of the world-as we have known it to be-is a very special moment in time when have a chance to evolve as a civilization or we are going to auto destroy our race. We have a chance to “crossover” – How sad would it be to say that we went from the Mayans, ancient Egyptians, to self obsessed, obese and sick individuals. And we caused our know extinction- just like the times of Noah Art (Hurricane Katrina, Tohoku earthquake)
Our religions are based on a better afterlife but what about the importance of a fabulous life now!. Heaven was meant to be created by the choices we make in the present! I myself once lived in own bulimia hell so I began scratch the surface, that surface broke like ice over a frozen lake, to my surprise as soon as I began eating organic, free-range animals and produce slowly my 17 year nightmare began to irradiate itself.
Many years go my doctors told me I would never be normal, my digestive system was so damage by the 150 laxatives I took daily that I would probably need surgery every few years. Today, I go to the bathroom about 3 times a day. Superfoods like mesquite, hemp, marijuana, maca, acai, chia, coconut, camu camu, forbidden rice, lucuma, goji, healed my body, mind and spirit. Many of these foods were used in ceremonies all over the world by different cultures to celebrate the Gods and the Goddess, to thank to them for granting them the abilities to perform sexual, physical, mentally and spiritual. These foods DNA and intelligence is extraordinary! Take the coconut tree as an example it produces milk, oil, water, fruit, sugar, it’s milk is pure enough to feed your baby after breast milk, imagine what it does to you when you consume it- ofcourse organic.
I would like to share some wonderful recipes and bathes that helped me on my journey of self discovery, re-invention, healing and finally to my goal weight.
