While blood cells should float freely; platelets need to be sticky. Platelets rush to the rescue when injuries occur. They clot the blood so that the wound can seal and heal quickly. If the blood is too thin, this process cannot happen. White blood cells keep “invaders” at bay by releasing proteins that kill viruses, bacteria, yeast and parasites. At the first sign of trouble, these soldiers are sent out to fight. If the immune system is vigilant, the war will be won. If not, the body will succumb to disease. When the immune system is compromised, parasites and yeast are able to enter the bloodstream quite easily. They thrive inside of us and multiply quickly. Should they actually make their home there, “dis-ease” is sure to follow. These hosts steal vitamins and minerals, even calcium from our bones, which is vital to our health. Over time bones & teeth can become weak, allowing osteoporosis to set in. Most illnesses have an underlying yeast condition. Common Symptoms of Yeast & Candidiasis include: Frequent colds • Flu • Fatigue • irritability • Brain Fog • Inability To Concentrate • Mood Swings

Yeast and parasites go hand in hand — if you have one, you most likely have the other. Both thrive on sugar and enjoy living in an oxygendeprived, acidic body. To keep the immune system strong, you must keep the body slightly alkaline (PH 7.0 – 7.5) and keep oxygen levels high. Oxygen can be obtained by eating living foods, as well as exercising and meditating on a regular basis. The red blood cells are responsible for transporting this oxygen and other vital nutrients throughout the body. If there is any residue or “sludge” from toxic wastes such as medications, excess fats and sugars or heavy metals from fish, fluorinated water, etc., proper oxygen exchange within the cells is impeded. This residue eventually turns to acid and leaves you susceptible to disease. In order to remove debris from the blood, you need to remove it from your diet. Dairy and other foods that turn into sugar or are high in sugar top the list of offenders that create unwanted acid and inflammation. Milk and its derivatives are also mucolytic, which means they create mucous in the body. This inflammatory response affects the stomach, joints, intestines and sinuses. It even affects the stickiness of your cells. Other highly acid-forming / inflammatory consumables include all meat, eggs, drugs, cigarettes, alcohol and coffee. Blood is an incredible liquid! It is cleansing, hydrating and nourishing. Without it we cannot survive. Our bodies know exactly what to do to regenerate and heal, all we have to do is treat it with kindness and give it the tools it needs to do its perfect work.



DIY Vegan Butter Recipes!
____________________
Vegan butters are blends of fat, water, emulsifiers and flavorings that replicate the consistency, flavor characteristics and baking performance of dairy-based butter. They utilize ingredients such as coconut oil, cocoa butter, non-dairy milks and lecithin. Vegan butters can be used as a dairy butter substitute in everything from pie crusts to cookies to puff pastry.

Raw Protein Guacamole & Salsa Stuffed Tomatoes…

Ingredients:

  • 3 Medium Tomatoes
  • Hemp Seeds (to garnish & add additional protein)

Protein Guacamole:

  • 1 Ripe Avocado
  • 1 tbsp Raw Protein Powder (plain unflavoured)
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil (cold press)
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Pinch Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1 Pinch Ground Black Pepper

Green Salsa Topping:

  • 1/4 Red Onion (diced)
  • 1/4 Green Capsicum (diced)
  • 1 heaped Tbsp Black Spanish Olives (diced)
  • 1 Sprig of Spring Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp Cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 1 pinch of Smoked Paprika
  • Juice of half one lime

Instructions:

  1. Cut tomatoes in half, and scoop out centres
  2. In a food processor add all your guacamole ingredients and blitz until smooth and creamy
  3. Prepare all your salsa ingredients in a mixing bowl, and mix when finished
  4. With a spoon divide the guacamole into the 6 tomatoes halves and fill
  5. Top guacamole filled tomato’s with your salsa until all are evenly dispersed
  6. Lastly sprinkle with hemp seeds to garnish

These are a GREAT Quick bite, fresh packed lunch, or even just an afternoon snack. They are great to look at, and so tasty! I’m always trying to amp up my protein as I eat a lot of raw foods. The protein guacamole is such a great way to do that, yet stay clean and green! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

These are amazing! I call them breakfast puddings because they’re the perfect make-ahead, no time in the morning, sleep as long as possible, grab on you’re way out the door breakfast (can you see what my mornings are like? haha)! I came up with these 3 varieties based on what I had around but you should absolutely feel free to get creative! I also used plain Greek yogurt and flavored it with vanilla and honey but you could also start with a flavored yogurt and use toppings that compliment it (lemon yogurt with blueberries? yum!).

I made my pudding the night before then spent 10 minutes assembling all my jars Saturday afternoon so that through the week I had a delicious, super healthy breakfast ready to go. I like to enjoy my jar with a nice big soy latte but you could also pair this jar with a piece of fruit, toast, or cheese to make it a full meal.

For more easy breakfast ideas go here and for more healthy dessert recipes go here (okay I’ll admit it, these are dessert for breakfast but with 9g protein and nutrient-packed chia seeds I’m okay with that!)

Although I only use plant based oils this is still good info to know!

Repost from @Organic_Olivia:
“When cooking oil reaches its “smoke point”, it will degrade and oxidize. The “smoke point” is the temperature at which the healthy triglycerides in oil start to separate into fatty acids + glycol. That glycol then turns to a toxic compound called acrolein. You never want the oil you are cooking with to reach it’s smoke point! If you are frying, ONLY use avocado oil or coconut oil (i.e. cooking eggs). If you are baking at 350 or doing a QUICK pan sear, use the oils in the middle (I prefer ghee). If you are baking at a very low heat (i.e. veggies or chicken at 300 or below) OR eating an oil raw such as in dressing use the oils on the right, I prefer extra virgin olive oil. Never fry with or cook these oils at high heat!! #smokepoint #oil #toxic #safety #cookingoil #cooking #cookingwithoils”
