Antibiotics and weight gain

I recently did a course of the antibiotic Azithromycin to treat an ear infection. I dreaded the thought of unbalancing my system, but the infection was affecting my hearing. The thought of losing my hearing to an infection was out of the question.

Anyway, soon after taking the antibiotic, I noticed that my weight was beginning to go up again. Continue reading »

Diet for an Irradiated Planet

It seems that the rules for what is optimal in a diet change when radiation is present in the environment, as it is now since the Fukushima Daiichi event on March 11, 2011.  A great amount of radiation has been released into the atmosphere and water since that time, and the release has not stopped.  This has resulted in the contamination of not just the local area, but much of the Pacific Ocean and Northern Hemisphere.

Ice Cream!

ice-cream-makerI finally after many months of consideration bought a Cuisinart ICE-21 Ice Cream Maker.  Why, oh, why did I wait?  It has turned out to be one of my favorite kitchen appliances.  Not only is this appliance very easy to use, but I can now make my own low-carb high-fat ice creams that fit the guidelines of my desired diet.  Specifically, this means that I can have ice cream made with natural no- or low-calorie sweeteners such as stevia and xylitol.  Let me be clear here that the ice creams are not less expensive that ice cream available in your local supermarket; rather, my purpose in making my own ice cream is to obtain a nutritionally superior product while accommodating my sweet tooth.

Shifting Needs

I think I have figured out why there has been so much confusion about what is the optimal diet.  It has a lot to do with the fact that our physical vibration is changing as the Earth moves into a new dimension.  Higher frequencies have different needs. Continue reading »

The Body Ecology Diet and Probiotics

Last week, I went to the free Super Charge Your Health Class at Soothe Your Soul in Hermosa Beach.  This seminar is given once or twice a month at the store.  The headline on the email advertising the class said that it would be about leaky gut and other digestive issues. Continue reading »

Baking Bread

I was inspired by the information about the Loetschental Valley to try making my own bread from freshly ground flour.  Dr. Price recommended that each city should have its own mill to provide freshly ground flour to bakeries.  Since that isn’t likely to happen any time soon, I will have to grind my own.  Fortunately, I already have a KGM Grain-Mill Attachment for my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

Cream in my coffee

Coffee with CreamI have found lately that putting cream or unsalted butter in my coffee or tea can really shut down my appetite, so much so that I have decided to reduce the butter I use with my morning egg.

Of course, I want to get the best fats in my diet.  Pasture-fed dairy has more omega-3 fat and less omega-6 fat.  The more the cow’s diet depends on pasture, the better the balance of these fats. Continue reading »

Is sugar toxic?

60 Minutes aired an episode last night asking, “Is sugar toxic?” I set the DVR to record it earlier this week in case I missed it when I saw that the topic would be sugar. It’s interesting that Dr. Lustig tagged out fructose specifically. Glucose can be problematic, too, if one consumes too much of it. Dr. Lustig pointed out that most doctors don’t know that sugar can raise the very worst type of cholesterol, the small dense LDL. Continue reading »

Kale chips

I finally got around to making kale chips.  Wow!  I should have done it sooner!  Even hubby liked them, and he’s not big on eating veggies at all.  I couldn’t remember how much time to cook them, so I looked up a recipe online.  I found a recipe for Crispy Kale “Chips” on the Food Network page.  It even has a video.  Be careful with the time.  Some of my chips were a bit overdone.
