Day 11 - What Is Your Diet Attracting?

I was originally going to post on another topic that often comes up during a Health Challenge that is as powerful as this one. At the last moment, however, I realized that I needed to explore more mindset issues that inevitably come up for people who are still stuck in the mode of passing judgement on their food. Watch this video now. It is crucial to using food for its intended purpose — to build your body up!

Today was a hard core work day for me beefing up some elements of the Challenge to make it more interesting for you, so I didn’t do a heck of a lot of cooking. I did, however, whip up some scrambled eggs with leftover lobster for breakfast.

To illustrate the point I mention in the video, as I was making breakfast, I remembered the words of a friend of mine who refuses to eat lobster. She says “Their the dirtiest creatures, eating anything they can find at the bottom of the ocean.” The funny part is that she practically lives solely on non-organic white flour, which is what she was eating at the time she told me that. If you didn’t know, conventional white flour is legally allowed to contain rodent feces, so long as it remains below a certain amount. Conventional flour is also loaded with mercury and pesticides yet devoid of nutrients. Lobster may contain many of these problems given the issues with purity of ocean water, but at least it contains nutrients!

Now my friend is skinny, if that’s something that you are concerned about. Yet she suffers from a number of health disorders and is wrinkled way beyond her years. She is a prime example of why this video needed to be made. I wouldn’t mention this if she weren’t the first one to tell you about it by the way.

Unfortunately, for most of us eating SAD (standard American diet) or any of its multiple dieting offshoots, has made us look like this guy end up looking like this.

Day 9 - Are You Addicted to This Poison?

You’ve heard it’s good for you and maybe even convinced yourself that it’s good “in moderation”. But did you know that this one supposedly necessary type of food actually makes your body’s need for vitamins and minerals higher? Many people are surprised.

Yesterday I was at the library and found a great cookbook that I’m going to add to my collection. It’s a book of grain-free and sugar-free baked goods. I don’t eat a lot of breads even when I’m eating grains, but sometimes you just need to sop something off of your plate or grab a sandwich on the run. I made one of the recipes from this book already and it was awesome! One word of caution is that it contains eggs, so if you’re allergic to eggs, many of these recipes will be off limits to you. Some of them, I suspect you can make with “egg replacer” by mixing ground flaxseeds with hot water.

I usually don’t promote anything with gluten-free in the title because they usually get it all wrong. While I do take issue with some of the ingredients in this book (like Splenda and certain other replacement sweeteners) and would prefer to see the nuts used in recipes to be more carefully prepared by soaking and drying before grinding into flour (for digestibility), the recipes are pretty well-written, which is why I’m adding it to my collection of 400 and counting.
