Does anyone have any good quick recipes with fresh spinach? Must be vegan. Thanks.
Spinach Spaghetti Sauce 4 to 6 cloves of garlic (depending on your love of it) 10 fresh basil leaves 2 cups tomato puree (tom.sauce may be used also..its just thinner) 1/2 pound spinach leaves (1 bunch usually) 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley 1/4 to 1/3 cup of olive oil (the recipe calls for 3/4 cup!!!you can reduce it to at least 1/3 though) (for an optional fresh taste…add a roma or two) Directions: This recipe is basically free from any cooking…though you may wish to saute the garlic before putting it into the blender or food proc. Mince the garlic into the blender. Pour the tomato puree into the blender. Clean, dry, and stem the spinach leaves and place them in the blender a small handful at a time. Begin to puree the mixture a little bit at a time so you do not clog the blender up. If you do, then just move the mixture around till the desired puree is achieved. Proceed with the rest of the spinach until it is all in and pureed. Oh yeah…add the oil at the time of the tomato puree. Now you can add the parsley and basil. You can also experiment at this time by tasting it!! Its great cold and will give you an accurate account of what it may need to you. I happen to love it with just these ingredients and maybe a couple of nice roma tomatoes to give it a fresh zip! Pour the sauce from the blender into a saucepan. Heat through and through. The longer you cook it….the less garden-like it may taste. I suggest just heating it long enough to get it hot. Toss with any pasta!!!! ….enjoy!!

If I eat raw garlic after a cataract operation OFTEN, will it speed up the recovery process?
Added a lot more please reread I would not think so but it might give you more stamina. If you have not had the operation yet, check this out Http://www.herballegacy.com/Herbal_Eyebr… Http://www.herballegacy.com/Eye_Ailments… this done together with a few other things had helped/cured people with cataracts more help here Http://www.herballegacy.com/search.php?z… Contact knowledge seeker on curezone.com for more info and if you send an email address, I can send you via attachment the formula from his book he is talking about and the chapter on eye diseases from Dr Schulze Save your Life manual that gives you what you need to do to heal this, When it was first published by a health author, thousands of people wrote into say they had been cured of all kinds of eye diseases including cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and some had been blind If it was me, I would first try this to see if it can help you prevent surgery. You can always get it if this does not work Here is a testimony of the effect of using the hallelujah diet (85% raw vegan whole food diet) on someone with cataracts. Http://www.hacres.com/library/testimonie… He attributes the raw carrot juice to them not getting worst and interestingly, Dr Richard Schulze who cured so many with the suggestions and eye wash in his eye chapter I can send you if you want to contact me on curezone, did say to drink 3 cups of carrot juice with his program. Schulze was taught by Dr Christopher who I linked above and he, like Christopher, saw miracles cures with eye diseases and even blindness. Both recommended using even a raw food, vegan high raw or mucusless diet (essentially vegan diet without sticky grains like rice) so this would be of help not only to the eyes but generally health, (more on this at herballegacy) If you decide to go ahead with the surgery, the only thing that may help is taking antioxidants like grapeseed extract/pycnogenol, and maybe take organic bilberry tincture to aid the eyes and I would also take lots of green smoothies prior to and for a time afterwards to give one the full compliment of nutrients that one cannot find in vitamin pills. Also the superfood sold at schulze's site herbdoc.com may be of help or something like spirulina. To make green smoothies mix any fruit you like with one of the following raw greens: kale, collard greens, green tops of beets, daikon, radish or carrot, spinach, swiss chard, romaine, watercress, parsley, broccoli, celery. Bok choy, any Asian market green or safe wild greens like dandelion greens, lamb's quarter etc. If making a green smoothie use a blender or vitamix. If making a juice use a juicer and do not take food or pulp with it for at least 30 minutes on an empty stomach so the vital elements go to healing and repair and not mainly digestion. If using any herbs or making the eyewash formula be sure the herbs are organic or wildcrafted Also in tincture form not capsules. I have used this and it only sting a little bit for a minute or two so do not be afraid of it. In addition to using it with eye cup and recommended amount of distilled water, also take it internally–60 drops every 1 1/2-2 hours. Use a slant board once a day and take brain herbs like rosemary and ginkgo Organic carrot for the juice would be better if you can get those. If not, use regular carrots. These things will improve the healing of the body, If you want to buy and not make the eyewash formula, it should be available at herbdoc.com, healmarketplace (schulze's student) or Http://healthfree.com/index.html if making it here are directions Http://www.herballegacy.com/Herbal_Eyebr… you want to use in the eyes several times a day as directed here Http://www.curezone.com/schulze/handbook… if making you can leave the rue and fennel out as the old one did not use these herbs.
I'm switching my 8 month old 7.4 lb dog to a commercial raw food called Paw Naturaw grass-fed organic bison diet. She was eating By Nature Organics canned food before, and most recently a homemade 2/3 boiled organic chicken 1/3 pureed organic veggie/fruit diet to bridge the gap between her last case of BN and the Paw Naturaw getting here. I tried switching her cold-turkey, and that led to the runs. I cleared it up using Earth's Best pumpkin baby food and had another go at it, this time gradually increasing the amount of bison mixed with her chicken and veggies. She had a couple solid poops and was fine for a couple days, but than last night she threw up a couple times but otherwise seemed fine. I had just gotten her up to a half and half mix. I give Flying Basset Organics probiotics daily as a preventative, and there are Flying Basset Organics digestive enzymes blended into her veggies. She also gets 1/3 tsp wild alaskan salmon oil daily, along with Organic Pet Superfood Immunity (a dried mushroom mix) I kept all of that the same. What else can I do to help her? I will be giving her vet a call when they open, but thought I might find more raw wisdom here lol. Oh and here's the ingredients- Organic grass fed bison, organic bison liver, organic spinach, organic broccoli, organic carrot, organic celery, organic apple, organic sweet potato, organic cranberry, organic cucumber, tricalcium phosphate, organic flaxseed, organic safflower oil, grass fed organic bison heart, grass fed organic bison kidney, organic lecithin, sea salt, zinc proteinate, vitamin E supplement, copper proteinate, manganese proteinate, calcium iodate, and vitamin D3 supplement. Gil c- thanks for telling me about the bones! I will be switching to the chicken formula, which has a good quantity of ground bone. I only am comfortable doing pre-made right now because PN checks every batch for pathogens, but thanks for the advice Raven, you aren't listening. I actually WAS told by another raw feeder to go cold turkey. I did NOT increase her probiotics or anything else. She only gets 1/8 tsp a day, and has since she was 8 weeks old! Hadly a supersized amount. And she just has to get used to it, she even was tolerating it as 1/3 of her diet. I am not feeding it to her just because it;s raw-it's the only acceptable food in production, raw or not. I'll be alternating with Paw Naturaw organic chicken and organic turkey varieties, and Raw Advantage organic grass fed beef. The By Nature was unacceptable due to limited protein sources and carrageen/guar gum. I just wanted to wait till she was at least 8 months to go raw.
It is obvious to me you love your puppy and are really trying to do the best by giving quality ingredients in the food. I have feed my dogs homemade raw food for years (they are 16 and 11) and in great health but I do not put all of the additives in that you are. With the right mix of meat, veggies, and fruit you should not need to add anything and since you are using organic that is even better than me! If you go to a website dog-food-aid.com you will find a navigation button for BARF/Raw and on that page there is a link for an inexpensive instantly downloadable eBook that will give you all the information you will need to feed from puppy through to old age. It will tell you what foods to feed to meet all essential vitamins, minerals and nutritional requirements plus help with recipes etc. It will also help with the transition process which is very important. I am sure you are very concerned and if it was me I would definitely be easing up on the additives for now and if you get the eBook, as your guide, you will be giving your puppy its' food the same way as many others. I feed Barf daily and my dogs love their food. Your puppy is lucky to have someone who cares so much that the best chance of a healthy life through healthy food is being given – it's just a case of getting the right balances. I hope this has helped you. Good Luck to both of you for a long and happy life together.

What are some nice healthy recipes that are easy or watever to make and that dont have too much calories in there.
Green smoothies (recipes on youtube)… VERY healthy and low in calories (depending on how many fruits you put into them though). All-natural (fresh) coconut juice helps with weight-loss. Google for more info! Superfoods: spirulina and chia seeds (google for more info… These are really healthy and nutrition-dense foods!) healthy oils (high in calories, so eat in moderation. You do need SOME healthy oils to stay healthy!) olive oil, flaxseed oil, sesame oil, hemp oil, coconut oil are great and healthy…. Never eat anything with canola oil. Eat a variety of healthy foods! 1-2 fruits a day (every day choose a different 1 or 2 fruits than you had yesterday, to ensure max nutrition), eat plenty of greens (kale and spinach are great), a variety of vegetables, sea vegetables (seaweed, dulse, etc…), lean protein (lean meat, fish, low fat plain yogurt, cottage cheese, etc..), eat 3 nuts a day (no more than that, because they are high in calories, but they are healthy!). Try to stay away from sugar and sugar alternatives (like aspartame, sorbitol, etc…anything else unhealthy) and instead sweeten things with healthier options like stevia, agave, raw honey, and dried dates.
I am a big fan of food and junk food! So this may be a little tough for me. But I have been wanting to do something new that will benefit me. I have acne on my face, chest, back, shoulders, and bumps on my arms. It's not severe but it's pretty bad. I am not looking to lose weight(I am 14 years old and average sized) but just to eat healthy! I saw a woman on the YouTube channel RawRadiantHealth talk about the raw food diet and I was interested. Can anyone give me a grocery list of recommended foods and a breakfast-lunch-dinner "menu " that would work on this diet? Does this mean a vegan or vegetarian diet? This probably involves giving up meat, which I really like. Could I maybe not completely give up those foods but eat sparingly or eat an organic type? I'd like to have all the information and tips I need to know! And places I could get the foods. Thank you! I appreciate it. Peace, -Angie.
I watch RawRadiantHealth too!! For breakfast you could have green smoothies. Might sound gross, but they are delicious! Recipes can be found on youtube for them. They are basically made out of greens (spinach, kale, or whatever green you like) and some type of fruit to sweeten it up (apples are a great option). For lunch, you could make a zucchini "pasta"…. Of course it's not actual pasta, but if you have a spirulizer you can make raw zucchini into "noodles" or "spaghetti".. In a blender, blend tomoatoes and a few basil leaves. Once blended, take it out and sprinkle some sea salt over as well as any raw seasoning that you like. And use that as the spaghetti tomato sauce. For a snack, you could make raw cookies: put 1 or 2 kinds of your favorite nuts (almonds and hazelnuts are my favorite), medjool dates, and some raw honey into a food processor and process until it's finely chopped up. You can add a little coconut oil if you like the texture that way better (coconut will also help the cookies to stick together better). Take out of the "cookie batter" from the food processor and use your hands to shape it into cookie-like forms… And enjoy! but don't forget that a lot of nuts can make acne worse! For another snack idea: freeze purple grapes and banana. Once frozen, take them out of the freezer and eat – tastes like hard candy! For Dinner, have "rice" with vegetables! Put cauliflower into the food processor and process until it looks like rice. Pour a little raw soy-sauce over it and a small pinch of sea salt. Next cut up some vegetables you like and eat it with the cauliflower (the cauliflower tastes just like rice!!) for dessert, make a raw "cheesecake"! Youtube: 'laura love raw cheesecake' and you should find a great recipe how to make it!! (she has some other delicious raw recipes!)…. But don't forget that nuts can make acne worse! Suggestions for the grocery list: 1. To sweeten things up – Stevia, Raw honey, dried medjool dates, or agave (although, many people say that agave isn't as healthy as the others in this list…but it's still MUCH healthier than regular sugar!) 2. Superfoods – cocoa powder, acai, spirulina, chorella, bee pollen, royal jelly, chia seeds 3. Salts – (salt is very important to eat! It's the regular table salt that you shouldn't eat). Buy either himalayan salt and sea salt. 4. Sea vegetables – sea weed and dulse flakes. 5. Healthy oils (olive oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, hemp oil) 5. And of course a variety of vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, and greens. (but if you're trying to get rid of acne, i wouldn't eat too many nuts. Just eat them in moderation, because if you eat alot of them, your acne could act up). PS: if you ever want a snack on the go or just a normal protein bar, you can get 3 different protein bars that are actually RAW at whole foods (or other health food stores) – Raw Revolution, Raw Organic Bars, or LaraBars. ….or you could even make your own.
Biotin is 1000ug (I take three, morning, afternoon, evening) and the fish oil is 1200mg. Also, the fish oil says only take one, but i wanna take two (morning and evening=2400mg in a day) is this safe? Thanks!
Yes you can take both People who cured things like depression, anxiety, ocd, add etc used about 3000 to 6000 mg,. We get 20 to 50 times more omega 6 than we should, the wrong proportions which should be one to one and the wrong fats cost the neuro-receptors in the brain to harden and this makes it difficult for neurotransmitters to jump from neuron to neuron and leads to chemical imbalances. Be sure to avoid trans fats, hydrogenated fats, huge reduction in saturated fats (going vegan is good) and most unsaturated fats as this affects the neurotransmitters in the brain. You want more omega three fats found in fish oil, fatty deep sea fish (mackeral and salmon (wild caught only–not farm raised-canned ok- herring and sardines) plant sources are flax seed oil (store in freezer) ground flax seeds, raw walnuts, purslane and chia seeds a superfood are an excellent source sold under name salba.. Chia seeds sold as salba are an incredibly high source of omega three fats and having no taste easier blend in things. To make tasty chia seed pudding mix seeds with plan milk (raw almond milk, boxed soy, oats, rice, coconut, almond, hemp milks and add a natural sweetener like barley malt, raw agave nectar etc and then fresh fruit and nuts if desired top with pretty fresh fruits like kiwi and strawberries. There are a whopping 2600 or so mg of omega three fats in a single tbs of chia seeds..caution can lower blood pressure. Research it is perfectly fine to take more fish oil as you are wanting. Be sure with b vitamins you are getting the others as taking just one can create an imbalance. One of the few good food sources is torula yeast (also called nutritional yeast) You want large flake #6635 red star if you can find it often the bulk bags they packaged themselves in health food stores are this kind. It taste cheesy and can be put on popcorn, in macaroni, smoothies etc. I would also take granular lecithin as this is a good source of the b vitnains choline and inositol.
Every month i plan a shopping day to get a full month of grocerys because its the day i dont have to worry about bringing my baby. I already know how to make my list and figured out how to organize the list. The thing i have biggest issues with is the organization of my cart. Because i get a crap load of grocerys and i go alone my cart is always super full and i have a hard time holding everything in the cart. I understand get big items first and slowly add other items in. Usually i just go up and down aisles so its not organized. Last shopping trip it was so full that the casheir started putting the bags in a new cart and didnt do much organizing so i ended up with 2 carts and no help so i was stuck pushing one and pulling the other. So i need help from experienced super shoppers… How do i make it easier to hold items in the cart. I just was infirmed by my mom have cashier scan the big items in the cart so they can stay in the bottom… But idk how to get it organized… Also is there a way to get coupns in newspapers if i dont sign up for an account.
I organize my list. According to the items appearance in the store by and by kind. Canned goods, frozen foods, fresh foods, refrigerated things, baked goods. And by the aisle they are in. Then you can go down the aisles, knowing what is coming next, and arrange your bas-cart with the heavy stuff on the bottom, because you went down the canned goods aisle, followed by the juice aisle first. And you got the soda and the potatoes on the way. Our discount grocery has been there for years. They have not changed the store at all, except to add a deli counter in the back, and point the fresh fruit bins sideways. Making a list is easy, since I know to save room in the canned goods at the bottom of my bas-cart to accommodate cans of sweetened condensed milk and Milnot from the baking aisle. I do two trips on grocery day. I go to the super discount store first. Darn them for rearranging the store, but I got the hang of it. I buy what they have that I want, take it home, have something to drink and go to the bathroom after the food gets put away, then I go to the discount store. And if necessary, run into the high priced store for the few things they have on sale, or that the others do not have.. The discount store of course has a bigger selection than the super discount, and I get what the super cheap one does not carry. By going to 2 stores and going home in between, I can buy ice cream and frozen foods at the cheap place, and get them back into a freezer before they melt. My Mom routinely went to 3 grocery stores every Friday, buying only what was on sale at the first two, then she bought the rest at the bigger grocery that stocked everything. And no huge bas-carts full to drag around. I do carry a freezer bag in the trunk, in case it is too hot outside. LOL, Rivers eats more ice cream in the winter than in the summer. In winter, just throw the ice cream in the trunk, and it stays nice and frozen. And yes, most grocery stores do not want you to remove all the big stuff onto the belt, because then they have to lift it back into your cart. Our super discount store however wants everything up on the belt. You could have the neighbors give your their coupon sections if they are not using them, or at least save the coupons they do not want. A place I used to work had a coupon exchange. I do not recommend it. My stores, both of the ones that except coupons, puts them online to print. And one of them lets you do a grocery list right out of the ad pages!

I need a grocery list for fatty foods. I've been eating "healthy" foods for the past 4 years or so because my dad had heart surgery 4 years ago. But I'm tired of eating healthy foods that are super low in fat and cholesterol- I think my health is actually getting worse because of not getting enough nutrients or something and I'm already skinny as a rail. I already know about whole milk, but what are some other things I can buy? What did our grandparents used to eat before the health food craze? I don't care if I have a heart attack in 30 years. Thank you!
Cheeses of all kinds! What a great way to learn about them. Summer sausage, braunschweiger, corn dogs, bratwursts, bacon, sour cream, frozen pizzas, frozen Chinese foods, nuts, pesto, and olive oil. I know my great aunts cooked with a lot of lard and bacon grease. (Although they were skinny as rails too, so take it for what it's worth.)
Is there some kind of super nutrient food that can be stored for a long time (some years) without going bad?
From Hormel, the makers of SPAM: "What is the shelf life of a Hormel Foods product in an unopened can? The processing techniques utilized by Hormel Foods makes the canned product safe for use indefinitely if the product seal remains intact, unbroken and securely attached to a can that has been well maintained. It is suggested that all canned products be stored in a cool and dry environment to keep the flavor adequately preserved. For maximum flavor it is recommended that the product be used within three years of the manufacturing date. After that period of time, the product is still safe to use however, the flavor gradually declines."
My roommate is cooking pasta with truffel oil, walnut, spinach etc. And I was wondering does truffel or walnut, for example, contain anything that is peculiar to it? For example, THIS super awesome type of seed is the only food that contains this miriculously awesome compound doing this and that… Often it is confusing me, because I have the understanding that most foods pretty much contain the same nutrients but in different concentrations. Thanks.
Yes, most foods contain varying combinations of nutrients, but some individual foods are completely missing one or more nutrients and others have nutrients that you don't need. I have a list of foods by nutrient density (the ones at the top of the list contain the most essential nutrients): Http://humaneliving.wordpress.com/2013/0…
Im doing an assignment in health and was wondering about this question.
The trendy thing to call them is "super foods". That should help your research. It is a food that has either an extremely high amount of a beneficial nutrient, or a small amount of a lot of beneficial nutrients…a food where it is worth the "cost" in terms of calories that you budget to have them in your diet. Lots of nutritional bang for the buck. Some that I can think of…blueberries, almonds, apples, garlic, carrots, quinoa, salmon, bananas, pomegranate. Lots and lots of fruit and veggies have been in the super food spotlight.
Wheatgrass acae blueberry chlorella spirulina goji berries pomegrate or is there one better than all these. M45.
Balance is best! Please remember that any list of the "best" foods depends on which nutrients you are discussing, not to mention which foods you love for flavor. We are so fortunate to be able to eat a wide variety of foods, and this will provide all of the nutrients we need. As a fantastic bonus we get to enjoy all of the smells, flavors, colors, textures, and even temperatures. It is so fun to find out that a food which is great on its own is sometimes even better in combination with other foods. Not only do we love eating, we also can talk about food endlessly. We need oxygen as well, but nobody wants to talk about it all that much, huh?

I was curious what people consider as superfoods? I'll start with one, Avocado.
Yes, there is a list. It does however, somewhat depend on what nutrients you are looking for. To name a few: Avocados (the fat content is excellent for the heart, unlike other fats) Almonds Apples Beetroot and beet greens Freshly ground flax seeds Broccoli Kale Spinach Collard greens Blueberries (high in antioxidants) Pineapple Garlic Ginger Coconut (the coconut meat and water) Hemp seeds Quinoa (germinated)
I know this is a great place to buy the superfood from. I once tried the powder and could not tolerate its taste, so I returned it and got my money back. Https://www.herbdoc.com/index.php?Query=… Any ideas? Is the superfood a real thing?
I believe that certain foods are better than others (like brocolli and blueberries, for example), but calling them "superfood" is greatly exaggerated. Also, once you condense healthy food into powder or tablets, it has lost almost all of its nutritional content. Even cooking food makes it lose some nutrition, never mind compressing them down into powder!
My question is regarding the Odwalla and Naked juices. From what I can tell from the nutritional label, they are often quite well balanced in terms of nutritions, other than the fact that the sugar content is a little high, but I would expect that from fruit juice anyway. I really like the convenience that those juices provide because I do not like to sit down and spend 20 minutes to eat a crappy microwave meal (for a home-made dinner with family, I think it's worth it but not for a microwave meal) so I prefer to just drink a bottle of that. But in terms of weight loss, which is more beneficial? I figure that if you eat solid food with good fiber content, it'll keep you full for longer. Whereas, juices will just give you all the energy quickly and make you go hungry soon after. At least that's what I feel when I drink those. In the long run, which will keep you full for longer? And does that have any correlation with how fast you expend the calorie?
Well I think that it would be better to refrain from fruit juices with high sugar content. It would be much better if you ate at least one serving of fruits or vegetables each day. Also, did you know that drinking eight servings (8 fl oz.) of water a day combined with a decently nutritious meal and moderate fifteen minute exercise can shed pounds in just a week?
I think there is a list somewhere but i can't find it…
Here are some articles talking about those foods considered to be super-foods: (eat locally grown in season fresh or frozen & eat a variety of in season fruits and vegetables in moderation): Http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/super… Http://www.superfoodsrx.com/superfoods Http://www.miamiherald.com/living/story/… Http://www.oprah.com/article/health/nutr…
Something with wheat grass and kamut and barley and spirulina etc.? What do you take and do you have to take like 20 pills because that is too much ( I am open to like 7 or so!). Please don't just direct me to your website where you sell stuff. Also I don't want a powder. So what do you buy and is it good and how expensive? Thx!

Has anyone taken these supplements? Have they made a difference in how you feel?
Were you meaning any specific Superfood supplements here or just general 'Super Foods'? I have once taken Mangosteen juice and I will consider taking it again as I took it at a time I needed more energy and I do feel it helped me quite a bit. Many take Spirulina and speak of its benefits. I do think in a world full of toxin exposure it is a good idea to invest in at least one Super Food from time to time. Thanks Best wishes.
