The Insanity

It is absolutely insane. Things that are occurring right now in America are totally insane. One of them is the fact that there is sugar in almost everything. I just read a list These Foods Have More Sugar Than A Krispy Kreme Donut at huffingtonpost.com and the list is a good indication of how sick things are.

Here are a few notable items on the list:

Quaker Instant Oatmeal; Raisin, Date, and Walnut

Kind Fruit and Nut Almond and Coconut Bar

Kellogg’s Raisin Bran cereal

Dole Tropical Fruit Cup

Odwalla Superfood Smoothie

Even foods that are marketed as being healthy are essentially poison. Sugar is poison. You must not ever consume sugar, and by sugar that includes all artificial sweeteners like fructose, cane syrup, cane sugar, raw sugar, etc. Its all poison.

Even consuming a little, tiny amount is really bad. That little, tiny amount triggers the human body in a powerful way that causes more intense cravings. It is therefore very important to completely avoid all sugar and therefore avoid the strong trigger and hence strong cravings.

The longer you remain free of sugar, the stronger you become. Eventually you will have a lot of power. I know because I have had this power for a long, long time and I love my body. I am very healthy and fit and never consume sugar.

A few months ago I did for a brief while and I was shocked at the weight gain that occurred. This was from only eating as a vegan, foods that are considered “healthy” but which contained sugar.

That little period was my brief experiment, to see how harmful sugar is to a pure, healthy body which has for years been weaned off sugar. Even to a healthy body like mine, the effect was shocking.

I want to tell you: Sugar is poison. Read labels. Know what’s in everything you consume and never consume sugar, ever.

(It has been some months now since that experimental period and my body is back to its normal state. The body will eventually get back to a healthy state, a less obese state, after stopping the consumption of sugar and all other refined carbs, but based on how long they were consumed, it may take a while. Therefore its important to be patient and remain persevering.)

Sugar takes a lasting toll on the body that can take months and even years to recover from. Even short periods in which sugar is ingested can lead to significant, lasting weight gain.

Stay off sugar. And stay away from all the sick companies which lie and deceive, which sell poison for the sake of profit.

Speak up and let your voice be heard. Tell your local food stores that you want them to do more to label sugary foods so that customers can make informed choices. Tell them that you find it upsetting that they carry these products which contain sugar, products which harm the human body. Tell them that they have a moral responsibility to not sell harmful products.

Talk to your friends, family, and neighbors about sugar and try to get everyone off it.

All the above said, fresh fruit is good for you. Fresh fruit is healthy. You basically cannot eat too much fresh fruit. Even if you try to eat too much of a really sweet fresh fruit, like say nectarines, the body will have its limit after at most a few and you simply will not even want to eat more.

The human body is eminently designed to consume fruit. The digestive tract of the human body is almost identical to that of apes which are frugivores. The same types of digestive juices, enzymes, and everything.

There is a treasure of abundance for those who are wise yet strong and disciplined. Its sad to see so many bodies harmed and at the same to our Earth so grievously harmed. Taking care of your body, your temple of Light on Earth, is an essential part of taking care of planet Earth.

This is, by the way, one reason why it kills me to see people smoking. Smoking is like raping the Earth at the micro-cosmic level, which has macro-cosmic reverberations.

On a final note, it was my birthday recently and someone suggested to me that I get a cupcake and put a candle in it to celebrate. I appreciate their intention, however – and this is really important to me – I see celebrating my birthday as a celebration of what I love – my body and my health and mother Earth – and there is no higher celebration than eating as healthily as I always do.

Every nutritious meal that I prepare for myself and eat is a great celebration of love for myself and for Earth. And I fully celebrate my wisdom, discipline, and strength!

Interesting photo from Paris, France 1939 or 1940

This was from a scene in the video attempting to show life in Paris as normal just preceding the German invasion. What is interesting about this photo to me is that the center entertainer does not have large breasts, as are standard nowadays.

It makes me feel better, since I’m in the same boat, to know that not everyone has to be huge to be considered attractive.

Rarely one will also see pictures of contemporary actresses who do not have large breasts and it is kind of encouraging to realize you’re not alone.

Milled chia seed’s astounding benefits

I had known about chia seed for quite a long time. It is high in omega fatty acids and is also used as a fiber additive. It is for this latter purpose that I started using it a while back, in the whole-seed, unmilled form, adding it to aqua de chia which I wrote a post about a while ago.

One issue with aqua de chia however is that regularly drinking lemon juice is harmful to teeth. As much as I love lemons, my teeth simply cannot endure regular intake of their juice unfortunately.

After that, I sort of ceased using chia seeds, until not long ago I purchased an inexpensive coffee maker online which came with a free coffee grinder. It has turned out that I am hardly using the coffee maker these days but using the coffee grinder regularly – often twice per day – to mill chia seed to make in porridge.

Here is the recipe I use:

approx 2 – 3 tablespoon of organic quick oats
3 level teaspoons of chia seed, milled in coffee grinder
2 teaspoons of ground golden flax seed, which is purchased ground at a local natural foods store and stored refrigerated (this is important since once it is ground it can oxidize go bad much faster)

So basically this porridge, which I like to enjoy every morning and often in the evening if I’m hungry before bed time, is mostly chia and flax, with a little bit of oats as a sort of carrier grain.

Ever since I was young I have always had issues with constipation. I thought that it would just always be this way. And now I want to report that I’m absolutely amazed at how well milled chia is working! I wish I had know about this many, many years ago.

I guess there really is a significant difference between unmilled and milled (ground) chia seed.

If anyone has not yet tried chia seed, I highly encourage you to try it. Not only are its health benefits amazing, it also tastes excellent.

It also turns out that I have friends from southeast asia who are also really into eating healthy, and one thing they consume in their culture is not chia, but rather basil seeds, in a similar manner.

Basil and chia seeds are similar, and both plants are in the same family – the Lamiaceae or mint family which includes a lot of excellent, healing herbs.

Milled chia seed. Love it!
