Is is so beautiful here in Vermont right now!!
The leaves are just starting to change into the most stunning, and beautifully rich shades of gold, red and orange. Father Time is gently reminding us that soon, it will be time to cozy in for the winter and concentrate on keeping warm and well fed.
This time of year I like to start adding warming foods and spices to my diet, creating internal heat, and promoting healthy circulation as well as boosting my immune system.
One of my favorite meals to accomplish this is Sweet and Spicy Broccoli with almonds. You can make it quickly with only a few ingredients on hand.
What you will need:
5 broccoli crowns cut roughly into bite size pieces.
1/2 cup of raw almond butter
1/2 cup of raw agave nectar
1T. Of hot chili flakes
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup of warm…

You’re made up of cells; your eyes, bones, organs… all made up of cells. The food of cells is glucose. Foods that contain this are all types of fruit. Eat your fruit.
But the media keeps telling me that sugar is bad for me.
The media are right, but they are also very lazy. All unnatural and refined sugar is bad for you. Lazy journalists then throw fruit into these stories either intentionally or because they don’t know themselves and then everybody gets confused. Fruit or 100% natural fruit juices are not part of this “danger”. Here is a good, short article that clearly states:
“(One note: we’re talking about added sugar, not the naturally occurring sugars found in dairy and fruit.)”
Yes but I have diabetes, I need to avoid sugar.
You need to avoid added and refined sugar, not fruit. If you have diabetes you must, at all costs, avoid refined flour as that spikes your blood sugar like nothing else. Really, nobody should be eating any type of grains. Just remember, grains are fed to cattle to fatten them up quickly, you think it has a different effect on humans? If you can’t eat a food in its raw and natural state, ask yourself why you’re even eating it to begin with.
Here is a fantastic short video that talks about sugar in fruit and how it even protects your body from sugar spikes.
Doesn’t fruit give you diarrhea?
If you don’t eat much fruit and you have a lot, you may get loose poop. But it isn’t the fruit that causes it, it’s your level of toxicity. If you continue on a high fruit diet and a big salad in the evening, your pooping will firm up very quickly every time so this proves fruit did not cause the issue, it was your body.
Fruit digests very quickly so remember to always eat it before any other type of food, not afterwards otherwise you’ll have fermentation.
Eat your fruit and when you’ve finished, eat more of it.
The media is not there to help or inform us in any way.
On one hand, this may seem obvious, yet on the other hand its very existence appears to represent the opposite, that the news outlets and newspapers are there to keep us up-to-date with current events, latest health discoveries etc.
All media outlets have one purpose and one purpose only and that is to make money. They have to? Yes, they do in order to survive, but it’s the primary goal. This is why we consistently see stories and articles that are often adverts. These are disguised news stories such as when, say, people refer to branded goods rather than using generic terms. This is not to mention how governments use the media to create and change opinions.
I think I have mentioned before but the one piece of advice I give you is, read a headline, then before you get drawn into the story, ask yourself why this story is even being told. What goal will be achieved by its publication? The moment you allow yourself to be drawn into the drama itself, it’s virtually impossible to be as objective about why it’s being told.
Journalists, in my opinion, have a responsibility to ask questions. Yet as time passes in my life I see this less and less and now I hardly see it at all. The media seems to just regurgitate whatever story the highest bidder wants told. How many times do we hear and read contradicting stories such as a certain food is good for you, then it seems the following week it is bad for you? The obvious answer to that question is that the media are merely reporting what so-called experts are saying. No, this needs to stop. When a source contradicts itself a responsible journalist should ask, on our behalf, what is going on.
This isn’t a rant, it’s a reminder to firstly switch off the television as much as possible and do something more enjoyable, and secondly, when you do watch it, be aware of what they are feeding you.
I never intended to use this blog for what I’m about to say. But I thought, heck, it’s my blog, I can write what I like!
We just received this amazing basket of organic fruit, organic medjool dates, a card and a crystal today from a dear soul that I counsel.
I just want to say one thing to you and that is, thank you. ❤
What’s the difference between believing something, and knowing it? Is there a difference?
Most of us have our lives run by beliefs, some people believe they need meat, or dairy. Some people believe the opposite. How are these set and how can we distinguish between believing something from knowing?
In my opinion, belief is replacing knowingness in much of our society. Individuals and sources of perceived authority feed us information that, because of the nature of that source, we believe it to be true. I’m not just referring to the mainstream media, or medical Doctors, I’m also including education. We believe that everything in our textbooks to be true. It must be? Right?
Well if you want to work in an industry the degree or qualification you will study is designed so, with that qualification, you will be useful in that field. I argue whether the information is true or not, really is irrelevant. Not to mention that in just about every area of life fashions in how we do things change so however we do them today, will change over time.
I try and instil a knowingness in the people I help. I don’t want them to believe what I say, I try to awaken the truth that I feel is deep in every one of us. Because with that truth, once you discover it, you are no longer weak, nor confused. You have such an unwavering strength so strong that it will seep in every area in your life. If you merely believe in something, that belief can be questioned or replaced. This is not the same with knowing.
If someone knocked on your door, told you your name was Frank and that you’re a girl, (unless you are a girl named Frank!) how are you going to react? Are you going to argue with them and find your Birth Certificate to prove them wrong? No, you don’t even engage in the notion, it’s so absurd to you it naturally is not worth even discussing. You may even wonder about the person’s state of mental health. That is knowing! You aren’t stressed, you certainly aren’t worried, your core in unshakable.
Think about what you know, discover more of it. Remember that despite needing some beliefs in life, try to convert them to knowingness. Most of the time, we only really know through experience. Don’t be afraid. Try something new rather than reading about it.
We recently went to the International School of Detoxification Level 2 class in Florida. An incredible experience, especially meeting so many wonderful people.
Matt was one of those people. Here he explains brilliantly what detoxification is:
