8 superfoods that aren’t worth the hype

acaiberries2

Overrated Superfoods

Interesting article debunks the superfood myth in everything from acai berries to coconut oil.

http://globalnews.ca/news/3638800/overrated-superfoods/

I do agree with most of the opinion/assessments in this article, perhaps with the exception of the fruit and vegetable juices and green smoothies. Though I do agree these are best made at home to ensure they are made with fresh ingredients and nothing artificial added, I think some of the prepared brands are quite good and a nice option when you’re on the go. Read the ingredients to make sure no sugar or chemicals have been added.

I have long been skeptical of raw superfoods. They are a trendy way for people in the raw business to earn money through selling expensive products that have an eternal shelf life, but of course the real superfoods are fresh fruits and vegetables!

I don’t sell superfoods or supplements. I rely on the sales of my online menu plan programs which teach people how to go raw safely and easily. They provide ongoing raw lifestyle support including daily instructions and they come with a lifetime membership. There is never anything additional to buy from me. The shopping lists tell you exactly what you need to purchase to prepare the recipes in the menu plans using fruits and vegetables found in the produce section of your grocery store.

In Joy,

Experiencing well-being

One of the upsides of dealing with chronic pain, is that when you come out of it you can really appreciate well-being! 

I now have a consciousness that when I am not in pain I am experiencing well-being. What a wonderful state of grace!

My body feels good, no pain, and I feel no anxiety or worry or negative emotions at this time. 

I use this time to smile, to smile deeply within my whole body into every cell of my being, soaking it with gratitude for this moment, feeling the sunshine, feeling all the potential of life and being alive in it.

I will write more soon about the last four months dealing with chronic pain from a rotator cuff injury and how I seem to have been healed by kiwi fruits!

What to eat

raw food diet minerals for strength

Changing your focus…

You can’t just focus on what not to eat. That’s no way to go on a new diet or change your dietary lifestyle. Sure, you know what you want to stop eating. But what will you eat now?

That’s where your focus should be. It’s more exciting to focus on what to do than on what not to do.

I think that’s one reason why the raw vegan diet works very well for many people for weight release and healing.

There’s a focus on new recipes, learning the new art form of raw cuisine, purchasing fresh, beautiful, colorful, vibrant and exciting produce, plus there are recipes and menu plans and philosophies of eating raw to explore.

There’s a whole movement of raw vegans to gather education and support from, and if you’re a member of my raw programs there is a very focused new group of people going raw together to make the journey exciting, fun and supported.

At the very least if you’re planning on cutting out certain foods from your diet whether it be sugar, gluten, greens, or animal products it’s really helpful to have a plan for what you are going to eat to keep you from the natural tendency to slip back into your default habits.

It could be as simple as making a list of what you’re going to eat today or tomorrow or as comprehensive as signing up for an online diet program like 21 Day Raw Cleanse

My next 21 Day Raw Cleanse begins this coming Monday May 29th! The Early Bird Special is still on, offering a sweet deal on a lifetime of Raw Support until Friday at 21DaysRaw.com

Just Take 5 For Your Wellbeing

Little things add up…

There are free apps you can get that will chime every hour on the hour. (HourlyChime for instance).

These can remind you once an hour to take five minutes to do something that is healthy for yourself.

For example, take seven deep breaths, drink a glass of water with lemon, do 10 squats, or walk around the office for five minutes.

It could be the same thing each hour or you could rotate through different activities, whatever you feel is good for you, whatever you feel you really need or would be most helpful to your mental or physical health at the moment.

Take a break, take a time out, take a breather, regenerate yourself a little, invest a few moments in your health and well-being. Just take five.

It will add up to greater physical and mental health, both of which will just make you feel better and improve your quality of life.

This is a quick and easy way to start establishing healthy habits! Who knows where it could lead!

Raw Baby Food and Tooth Care

040Q: I have some questions about baby food. I remember have e-mailed you years ago with some nursing questions for my first baby and your answer was very helpful back then. now have baby again and she is 8 months old, but am not sure what to do with food, so am still nursing her and have not given her solid food yet. don’t really remember exactly what I did with the first baby (she is now 7, so it is while ago), all I remember is that I messed up her teeth by not brushing them and giving her OJ and dates all the time. So definitely don’t want to make that mistake again! What is your experience with baby food? what is the right age to start solid food in your experience? and what foods are best? and how long did you nurse your kids? nursed my first kid 4 years and that seemed fine, except for her teeth ( think it was the not brushing combination with OJ and dates, but our dentist says it must have been the nursing at night don’t know about that, but did nurse her also during the night several times for 3 years…). Anyway, hope you are willing to share your experience about baby food, what to give, when to start and what to do with nursing with me. You must be an expert when see how healthy and strong your kids are!

Many blessings,

Arielle

A: Hi Arielle,

The baby food I made was like a green smoothie with less liquid so that it was thick enough to eat with a spoon.

For instance I would blend up:

– a quarter to half or even a whole avocado
– pitted plums (or any other fruit)
– a few leaves of spinach or a leaf or two of kale, collard greens or romaine lettuce for instance
– just a little orange juice, apple juice, coconut water or water for instance (2 tablespoons to start, adding more tablespoons as necessary to get the mixture to blend)

The avocado gives you the fats and makes it creamy. The fruit gives sweetness. The greens give incredible nutrients and minerals and a little protein too. And the liquid helps it blend up.

I think nursing for 3 years is a wonderful gift to give your child. That was the approximate length each of my kids got and we think it made them really warm people as well as giving them really strong immune systems.

It is hard on the teeth though. In retrospect I would brush their teeth in the mornings as well as before bed. Some like to wipe baby teeth with a wet cloth instead of brushing. I prefer toothbrushing with a mild toothpaste like Auromere or Tom’s. Sufficient greens should help keep teeth strong against cavities too.

Don’t brush teeth for an hour after drinking citrus as it temporarily loosens tooth enamel. But do brush after an hour. Drinking with a straw can help reduce damage from drinking citrus.

I hope this helps!

Yours,
Jinjee

Vegetarians Don’t Live Longer???

Fellow vegetarians, not only don’t we live longer than meat-eaters, but we’re also the least popular kids on the block!

According to this article studies show that vegetarians do not live any longer than omnivores. Their only distinguishing characteristic is that people see them along with drug addicts in the most negative light.

On the bright side this article did not study raw vegans but admits that eating fresh fruits and vegetables can lengthen your lifespan.

The takeaway for me is no matter what your diet, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables for better health and longer life, but if you want friends don’t tell anyone you don’t eat meat.

Influences Upon Health

Screen Shot 2017-03-20 at 2.04.24 PM

Was studying about Process Mapping for business, and found this graphic (above) amongst the many examples of types of Process Maps. This one happens to be quite interesting as a way of looking at health and how our various habits influence each other and our weight/health and attitude!

So to put it in words, which are for me more influential than visuals, what I can learn from this map is that…

1. Our Attitude affects our Exercise Habits, Eating Habits, Stress Levels and Sleep Habits, which in turn affect our Weight/Health. (attitude affects everything)

2. Our Exercise Habits affect our Eating Habits, Sleep Habits, Stress Levels and Weight/Health. (exercise affects everything)

3. Our Eating Habits affect our Sleep Habits and Weight. (though I would add that they also affect our Exercise Habits and Stress Levels and therefore our Weight/Health – so basically everything)

4. Our Stress Level affects our Attitude, Exercise Habits, Sleep Habits and Weight (and of course it affects our Eating Habits if you’re me, so yeah, our Weight/Health also thereby)

5. Our Sleep Habits affect our Attitude, Exercise Habits, Stress Levels and Weight/Health. (But why wouldn’t they affect our Eating Habits too? I suppose the map shows that they do so via affecting our Attitude. I can see how that could be true, especially if you equate attitude with the decision-making impairments that can accompany lack of sufficient sleep)

6. Weight Gain (Health) affects our Stress Levels and thereby our Exercise Habits and Attitude. and thereby everything else. You can see how this could be a cycle of Stress leading to Weight Gain leading to Stress leading to Weight Gain, etc… just for example.

The takeaway… Everything affects everything. Attitude, Exercise, Eating Habits, Sleep Habits and Stress Levels are all very important to your weight and health.

But where is the easiest place in the cycle for you to make changes?

Make a positive change in any one of these areas and you’ll start a positive upward spiral for your health.

How to Make a Raw Vegan Diet Cost-Effective

Money_Face_Emoji

- By guest blogger Sam Socorro

Everyone wants to be healthy, but it can be hard to know who you can trust with your food. With all the controversy surrounding food processing, artificial ingredients, and loose regulation, it’s no wonder that droves of people are turning to vegan and raw food-based diets.

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyways: if you’re going to eat a raw food diet, you should really eat organic foods. There’s no point in trying to reap benefits from raw foods if you’re going to ignore the pesticides and other undesirables that exist in most supermarket foods.

Sure, raw food diets are constantly praised by doctors, health-gurus and celebrities, but where are ordinary people supposed to find a good source of organic, healthy, raw food without spending their entire paychecks on a week’s worth of food? After all, not everyone has the seven-figure salary of a celebrity…

The price of produce varies greatly, according to My Money Blog, a website that serves as an educational tool for investment and financial planning. Mushrooms top the list of vegetable prices at $4.02 per pound, while potatoes are only 48 cents per pound. Remember, if you shop smart, you can shop cheap. The prices listed are for inorganic foods, but the logic applies to both organic produce as well.

Another way to view the value of produce is to take a look at its nutritional content. Sightline, an independent, nonprofit research center, has compiled a few lists that rank fruit and vegetable prices against their ANDI, or Aggregate Nutrient Density Index. Basically, they’ve shown what foods provide the best nutrition at the cheapest prices.

Among the top scorers of their vegetable lists (top means good value), Sightline has cabbage, collard greens, and carrots listed. As for the fruits list, watermelon is by far and away to the most nutritious for its price, followed by plums, oranges, apples and strawberries.

If you’re looking to get the best bang for your buck with an organic raw food diet, you should take the time to learn the relationship between seasons and produce. Otherwise, you’ll end up paying more money for less quality. This is because, during the colder months, supermarkets will outsource their produce-farming to warmer climates, leading to early harvesting and product degradation during transit. Still not convinced? The increased prices of getting said fruit from the farm to the store end up getting paid for by consumers.

The USDA has an expansive guide on what produce grows during each season, as well as ideas for how to use them in dishes and basic nutritional information. Each season has its own list, and each list as more than twenty examples of popular produce that grows during each season.

By comparing the sources above, we can create our own list of the most cost efficient produce, both in price, nutrition, and season. In the spring, you should buy cabbage, collard greens, carrots, and cauliflower. In the summer, you should focus on watermelon, plums, oranges, and strawberries. For fall and winter, go for bananas, oranges, carrots, cabbage, and collard greens.

Look for local farmer’s markets to find good deals on the freshest produce available. Afraid of the prices on premium veggies? Don’t be. Happy Money Saver reports that many produce items are actually cheaper at a farmer’s market than at a supermarket. If you do your research, you can find out what prices are best for both farmer’s markets and supermarkets.

Not everyone can afford to go completely organic. If your budget is tight, and you feel that you need to supplement your diet with inorganic food, you should look for food with inedible rinds, like bananas or oranges. Because you peel the outermost layers off, you won’t consume the pesticides that get sprayed over the crops. Similarly, you should never eat berries that aren’t organic, as their porous surface makes them more likely to absorb chemicals. This logic applies across most produce.

Despite what you hear, raw foods don’t have to break the bank. If you’re smart and plan ahead, you can figure out what foods to buy, when to buy them, and where to find the best prices. Luckily, the prices of raw, organic foods will only go down as demand and agricultural advancements progress.

What is a perfect body?

Cheeky Affirmations…

Everyone has a different idea of the perfect shape for a body. Just for instance, many women have gone from asking if our bums are too big to asking for butt implants to make them look bigger!

When I think of my body as perfect, I’m not thinking about its outward shape, but I’m thinking with gratitude about how perfectly it functions.

To me, a perfect body is one that functions perfectly! I haven’t a single health complaint so I can gratefully and cheekily affirm “I have a perfect body!” Or, prayerfully: “Thank you for my perfect body”.

I like to sneak in affirmations like this to myself because I do think they can make a difference in my beliefs, perceptions, expectations, and even outcomes.

A trick for fully enjoying your food

desserts500
Tip for eating less…

I can’t believe it when I have some really yummy food and then put something else of a totally different flavor that’s also really yummy in my mouth. Why would I do that???

Isn’t part of enjoying ones food enjoying the aftertaste for as long as it lasts? Wouldn’t that be getting the full value out of the flavor?

That got me thinking that to fully enjoy ones food one should fully and consciously relish every part of the process, starting with the initial craving and/or planning, and including the joys of…

• Craving, expectation, looking forward
• Shopping
• Preparing
• Plating
• Eating / enjoying
• Savoring aftertaste
• Enjoying the feeling in your tummy / body
• Noticing what the meal does for your health, beauty, and energy

For more tips on conscious and healthy eating join the 21 Day Raw Cleanse that starts this Monday! Find out how!

fitnessgirl

Image courtesy of Pixomar at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Whether you are working at home or in the office, here are some health trends that you can incorporate to improve your health in 2017!

1.) Athleisure

Wear yoga pants that look like slacks to the office! Check out all of the awesome styles their pants are available in! You’ll never have an excuse to skip your afternoon workout break when you have pants both professional and comfortable! (get that asana done on your coffee break!)

2.) Sit-To-Stand

Offices all over are providing standing desks in the workplace! Take a look at this article from Herman Miller discussing the benefits of Sit-to-Stand! Being able to switch from sitting to standing can do wonders for your body!

3.) The 10 Minute Workout

A lot of people are developing programs based on the latest research showing shorter workouts are more effective for women over 40. I’ve bought a few of these programs that were terribly disappointing in quality, but I absolutely love Erin’s 10-minute fat-blasting, body-sculpting workouts. I could see nice muscle tone in my legs and butt and a noticeably slimmer torso after the first week or two of doing these 10-minute daily routines!

4.) How to eat healthy

A 21 Day Raw Cleanse makes going raw for three weeks easy and highly effective for rejuvenation, safe weight loss, increased energy and wellbeing. This is a program you can do anywhere! Home, online, do this program at your own pace and lose weight!

5.) 10 office exercises you can do secretly

Exercise secretly! Take a look at the details of these 10 exercises you can do without having to leave your office!

  • Start-up Meeting Stretches
  • Copy Machine Calisthenics
  • Under Desk Dynamics
  • High Profile Aerobics
  • Office Chair Abdominals
  • Bottom Line Lifters
  • Water Bottle Workouts

The Raw Dilemma

guacamoletayshaYes we know a 100% raw vegan diet can be a very healing diet and we know you can lose a lot of weight very fast on this diet. It is a fabulous lifestyle to prevent disease and to increase anti-aging and longevity.

But for many of us it just doesn’t work to do it long-term. Some people become deficient, crave other foods, start to look old, and experience various physical problems from B12 and mineral deficiencies to adrenal fatigue and hair and tooth loss to mental illness.

How can we enjoy the incredible benefits of a raw food diet without risking undesirable side effects?

Is the answer in eating superfoods, avoiding superfoods, eliminating certain foods, food groups or macronutrients, eating the right percentage of macronutrients, eating the right supplements, avoiding supplements, eating fresh whole foods, eating a balanced and varied raw diet, or is it something else?

Well I’m experimenting with a cooked / raw integration. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s getting better. If I can get it to work as well as a raw diet for myself I will let you know! If I can’t, I’ll be going back to the drawing board and attempting again to optimize a raw diet that can work for me in the long-term. Another thought I’ve had is to go back-and-forth between an optimized raw vegan diet and a healthy cooked diet to get the best of both worlds.

But for now, the best diet I know for rapid yet sustainable, healthy weight release and overall health and wellbeing is still the 100% fresh, raw, balanced diet outlined, detailed and demonstrated in The 21 Day Raw Cleanse and the 28 Days Raw Program.

Weight Loss Hacks

Preserve the taste of the last yummy thing you ate!

taboulitayshaHere’s an awesome little trick for eating less that takes just a simple shift in perspective.

If you’re a person who loves food, this is particularly easy!

This falls into the realm of conscious eating. When you are conscious of the delicious flavors of your food, you can be conscious of the lovely aftertaste for quite a while after eating.

So if you are offered dessert or tempted to eat something shortly after eating, it is easy to choose instead to continue to enjoy the lingering flavor of the last food you ate.

You might say then “No thank you, I’m still savoring the taste of dinner in my mouth”.

Imagine if this cuts down on your snacking by 25%. Over the course of a year it might add up to being quite noticeable!

A few little lifestyle changes like this can actually make a big difference. For instance, you add in a house-cleaning day weekly and you never sit on public toilet seats.

Women who clean their own houses are 20 lbs lighter than others on average.

And by popping a chair-pose instead of sitting on public toilets you not only save time applying seat covers but you build your thigh muscles, one of the biggest and therefore most calorie-burning muscles in your body!

Have any weight-loss hacks to share? Post a reply below!

What automatically happens on a Raw Food Diet

Artwork by Raven Talifero

Artwork by Raven Talifero

A nice thing about eating a raw vegan diet is that you don’t have to think about so many different rules of healthy eating. By doing the one thing (eating raw) you naturally follow pretty much every dietary rule out there! For instance…

You don’t eat packaged or processed food
You don’t eat gluten, soy, or MSG
You don’t eat animal products, red meat, dairy, eggs (or anything with cholesterol)
You don’t eat free radicals, trans fats, or denatured proteins
You don’t eat carcinogens
Your diet is anti-inflammatory
Your diet is high in anti-oxidants
Your diet is high in nutrients, minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, electrolytes, and fiber
Your food has a high water-content
Your food is nutrient dense
Your food is low-calorie
Your food is low-fat
Your food is free of refined sugars
Your food is fresh
Your food is healthy
You’re eating real food
You eat food that your body recognizes as food
You eat food that your Grandmother ate
You eat the rainbow
You are eating clean
It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle
You eat mostly fruits and vegetables
You eat healthy fats
You eat healthy proteins
You eat healthy carbs
You eat toxin-free
You don’t have to count calories
You can eat as much as you want!

Imagine all the ways this benefits a body!

Self-Esteem Creates Symmetry

screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-11-01-38-amI was thinking about how beautiful Oprah looked in a recent video.

Here is a woman who did not always feel beautiful and yet is becoming more beautiful as she ages.

I was trying to imagine what goes into that process.

And I think that maybe when you make decisions in your life that are balanced, you become a more balanced person and so your features come into a more balanced symmetry.

I think there are many other factors of character that show up on our faces over time. Certainly our default emotional state has some effect on the character lines in our face.

What are some things you can see in a persons face? Loving, caring, joy, pain, determination, hopelessness, resentment, sensuality, peace, worry, curiosity, openness, intelligence…

Certainly healthy living has a lot of bearing on the way that we look as we age.

And I think all of this helps to further validate the 3-prong idea that health is determined by how we eat, how active we are, and by our inner emotional life.

I am honored to run a series of raw diet programs that activate these three areas to generate tremendous momentum which makes leveling up ones health almost easy.
