My body loves anything green,when we practice listening to our body, it will tell us what we need. One of my favorites is spirulina. I've been taking it for a long time but there was a short period when i stopped. One night I had a dream, I walked into a juice bar and ordered a sparking spirulina drink with chlorella. I woke up and realized I hadn't been taking it for two months. It was my body's way of reminding me of this essential nutrient. 

Supplements;are intended to supplement the diet and contains one or more dietary ingredients (including vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, amino acids. My favorite three, which I call the Magic Three, are the following: Spirulina, Bee pollen, and Chia, these use to I take every day, not I skip a day or two in between so my body absorbs their benefits more and not get use to them. :) 

The benefits of spirulina almost seem too good to be true. Spirulina is a highly energising, highly digestable superfood that comes close to providing everything the human body needs. It’s so super that NASA has even selected spirulina as one of the most important space foods.

It has been reputed to be useful in the treatment of:
~Liver pathologies 
~Increasing neurotransmitter formation 
~Acting as an appetite suppressant 
~Supports healthy immune system 
~Supports normal cholesterol levels
~Boosts energy and cellular health
~Helps with wounds

Many years ago a friend of mine had a nasty skating accident and slashed his arm. He asked for help, so I sprinkled Spirulina on his stitched wound and wrapped it with lettuce and gauze. When he followed up with his doctor he was amazed on how quickly it had healed-so were we!
Spirulina is 65% protein and amino acids including the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) 
                     .               Spirulina contains Omega 3-,6 and 9s and is especially high in Omega-3s.
Spirulina is extremely high in Chlorophyll, which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.

                                                               BEE POLLEN

Bee Pollen is made by honeybees, and is the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature's most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins (approximately 40% protein), free amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid.
Bee pollen is a complete food and contains many elements that products of animal origin do not possess. Bee pollen is more rich in proteins than any animal source. It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body.

Chia seeds are an ancient super food that has been used by the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas. In fact, Chia means "strength" in the language of the Mayans, and was considered running food because messengers could run all day with the help of these tiny seeds. Chia seeds were considered medicine and were actually prized more than gold due to their incredible health enhancing properties.

1.Chia:  Another unique quality if the Chia seed is its high oil content, and the richest vegetables source for the essential omega-3 fatty acid.  It has approximately three to ten times the oil concentrations of most grains and one and a half to two times the protein concentrations of other grains.   These oils, unsaturated fatty acids, are the essential oils your body needs to help emulsify and absorb the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K.  Chia seeds are rich in the unsaturated fatty acid, linoleic, which the body cannot manufacture.  When there are rich amounts of linoleic acid sufficiently supplied to the body trough diet, linoleic and arachidonic acids can be synthesized from linoleic acid.* * Highly 

The benefits of omega-3 aren’t simply limited to cardiovascular and circulatory problems. It has also been shown to boost the immune system, helping your body fight back against infections and diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids are also known to maintain and enhance brain function. Scientific experiments have proven that it helps improve memory and protect brain cells from both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. This is particularly beneficial to elderly people, helping them maintain a sharp mind and to enjoy all of their memories during their golden years. Students looking for an edge to help them study better can also take advantage of this. And the mental benefits of omega-3 do not stop there. New evidence suggests that they can also help relieve depression and anxiety.
What Are the Health Benefits of Hemp Protein?
Your body needs 22 amino acids to function properly. The metabolism cannot produce eight of these amino acids, and produces insufficient amounts of another two. These essential amino acids must be obtained from dietary sources. Hemp protein contains all eight essential amino acids that the body cannot produce in adequate amounts, making it a complete protein.
*Please look at recipe page.

 Hemp seeds are so yummy alone or in smoothies, on salads over Xocolatl sphere and great to make hemp milk.

 There are eight amino acids the human body cannot make and two more the body cannot make in sufficient quantity, so they are essential to life. A diet without any one of them will eventually cause disease and death. These essential amino acids, along with eleven others the body can make from them, are chained together in accordance to genetic guidelines, via RNA formats from DNA blueprints, into structural proteins that give body to life, and into enzymes (globular proteins) that carry out the mechanics of living.
          Nearly three quarters of body solids are proteins. The body is literally constructed and maintained by an infinitely complex system that simply builds proteins from amino acid sub units. Every amino acid consists of an amine and a carboxyl bound to the same carbon atom. All but the smallest amino acid have one, more or less complex, carbon containing side chain connected to the carbon atom shared by the amine and carboxyl groups. The amine group, ND, is slightly basic; the carboxyl group, COOH, is a mild acid. The amine group of one amino acid unites with the carboxyl group of another forming a peptide link. Proteins are made of amino acid peptide chains in specific sequences. The number of possible amino acid peptide combinations is infinite.
          Peptide chains can bend, twist and unite with other peptide chains by forming weak hydrogen bonds between nitrogen and oxygen atoms along the chain. Amino acids can also form bonds through side chain linkages. All three types of amino acid bonding methods contribute to the infinite possibility of protein shapes and reactivity potentials. Though each species builds proteins unique to itself, life can tailor new ones if challenged by the pressures of existence.
          Hemp is not unique in having all the essential amino acids in its embryonic seed. Flax seeds also contain all the essential amino acids as do many other seeds in the plant kingdom. What is unique about hemp seed protein is that 65% of it is globulin edistin. That is the highest in the plant kingdom.
 I put it in my fruit smoothies along with, cacoa raw powder, hemp protein, and chia.
Healthy fats and oils: 
1. Flaxseed are the best source of omega 3 fatty acids; has heart- healthy properties; is a colon-friendly oil; lessens constipation; boosts immunity; promotes healthy skin; contains the healthy phytonutrient, lignin; spoils quickly without careful storage; not to be used in cooking.
2.  HIGH Heat OIL: Grapeseed oil you can use this oil in cooking various dishes or for enhancing your skin.
3. Olive oil (virgin or extra virgin) 
Doesn't need high temperature or chemical processing, since it is made from the flesh of the olive and not the seed; slow to spoil; okay for medium-temperature cooking; in moderation lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol without affecting HDL, (good) cholesterol thereby improving the HDL-to-LDL ratio.
4. Pumpkin seed 
Low in saturated fats; rich in omega-6 fatty acids may contain some omega

BUT I LOVE BUTTER, No worries replace dairy butter with Organic Earth Balance (dairy free) you can find it health food stores, try asking your local stores to carry it.

Is salt bad for you?
Actually "table" salt is an unnatural form of salt, more like a chemical with little to no health benefits. But real natural salt is essential to living a healthy life. What I am talking about is SEA SALT and not just any SEA SALT but one that is not refined or bleached as the many we find in the grocery stores...even the heath food stores! The type of salt I am referring to is HIGH MINERAL SEA SALT - One of God's Gifts to us.

Real unrefined HIGH MINERAL SEA SALT can be pinkish to even greyish in color and it is very moist, not dry and smooth flowing as we expect salt to be. High Mineral SEA SALT is sold under the name of Celtic Sea Salt or Grey Salt, among others. It is full of important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, sulfur, iron, zinc, copper etc. It’s a natural source of 21 essential minerals and many lesser elements. This makes High Mineral SEA SALT much better for you than regular "table" salt. Many do not know that we need salt (real salt) to make hydrochloric acid, which helps you digest proteins.

Sugar substitute: Maple Syrup, Date syrup, Rice syrup  

          Date Syrup: Dates are a good source of Vitamin-A (contains 149 IU per 100 g), which is known to have antioxidant properties and is essential for vision. Vitamin A also required maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural fruits rich in vitamin A known to help to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

 Grains are rich in complex carbohydrates, the primary fuel for our bodies. They are also a goldmine of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Whole grains are the first choice because they contain the most fiber and nutrients. Experts say eating at least three servings of this powerful food each day can reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes and help you maintain a healthy weight.
However recent studies show that if not soaked or fermented before consumption the may cause bloating and intestinal problems. Please read more : http:
Here are some I love:
Amaranth, Quinoa, Barley, Brown rice, Millet,  Kamut, lentils and Popcorn
Varieties: Black Beans,Pinto Beans, Kidney Beans, Lima Beans, Black Eye beans, Garbanzo Beans Diets rich in legumes are being used to lower cholesterol levels, improve blood glucose control in diabetics, and reduce the risk of many cancers. Legumes contain many important nutrients and phytochemicals, and when combined with grains, they form a complete protein. According to studies conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture, richly colored dried beans offer a high degree of antioxidant protection (see below). In fact, small red kidney beans rated the highest just ahead of blueberry.
    .                     What is the function of the Colon?
To maintain good health, your body must effectively eliminate food and bodily waste! Your colon — together with your lungs, skin and kidneys — are designed to accomplish this essential task by eliminating toxins in the intestines, blood and lymph systems. The main functions of the colon are absorption of water and minerals, and the formation and elimination of feces... The colon contains nearly 60 varieties of microflora or bacteria to aid digestion, promote vital nutrient production, to maintain pH (acid-base) balance, and to prevent proliferation of harmful bacteria. A person with a healthy colon will have 2 to 3 bowel movements per day, shortly after each meal taken. Elimination should be complete and easy. The stool should be light brown in color, long and large diameter. There should be no offensive odor and it should break apart with toilet flushing.
Please avoid: MSG, Aspartame, food coloring & additives, Hydrogenated oils, refine sugar, flour preservatives and soda. WHY?  All of the above have been linked to one or more of the followings side effects: 
Hazards Overview. Many people have experienced negative side effects from ingesting Monosodium Glutamate (MSG). Side effects may include paralysis, inability to breath, tingling, and swelling. Negative reactions can be so severe that MSG consumption could be deadly for some people. For this reason, socially responsible restaurants and food manufacturers no longer use MSG as a flavor enhancer, and have switched to natural seasonings instead. Unfortunately, some restaurants and food manufacturers still use MSG.


  • Abdominal pains
  • Fatigue (blocks sufficient glucose entry into brain)
  • Sleep problems
  • Vision problems
  • Anxiety attacks
  • Depression
  • Asthma/chest tigtness.
  • Food preservatives:Food preservatives are important in food manufacturing because they are used to lengthen the shelf life of a variety of products. From canned fruits, to protein bars, crackers and even turkey slices, almost every processed food uses preservatives in one form or another. Preservatives can be fairly natural, like salt or sugar, or they can be complex chemicals manufactured in laboratories. Some of the food preservatives used to stabilize and protect foods can actually harm humans when eaten in excess, according to the consumer advocacy group, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
  • Tumor Growth and CancerAccording to CSPI, some food preservatives may encourage the growth of tumors. The Center for Science in the Public Interest was founded by Dr. Michael Jacobson and two other scientists with the purpose to educate the public about food safety and to advocate for policy changes related to food. They state that BHA, a food preservative commonly added to cereals and potato chips, has been shown to cause tumors in rats, rabbits and hamsters. While it has not been scientifically proven to cause tumors in humans, CSPI states that there is a strong correlation to the effects in humans when a chemical causes problems in three different species.


  1. I would love to know your sources for some of your info. It's good to get the low down on who is providing the research and information Also, the latest work on grains is that when eaten in excess they can be the hidden culprit in Insulin resistant Diabetes, celiac disease and rheumatoid arthritis, among the few big ones. I'd limit grains to only 15-20% of any diet program, with the highest concentration on greens, and vegetable carbohydrates.

    All in all, I am so excited about your blogspot and the love you put into it.
    Dra. E

  2. Dra.E, Blessings and thank you for your comment. This is a new baby and I'm still developing it all the links for the info posted here will be available in the Resources page. Please visit again. Yes I agree we are all unique in the way we process foods. I have a friend that can't eat oatmeal-one of my favorites. Be well~araceli
