CAREER TALK

A PASSION FOR THE FUTURE!

NEW BEGINNINGS

Our graduate student Joelle Vadas has opened her own healing center 'RawFully-Healthy' in Melbourne, Australia.

She will be coaching and leading workshops teaching the benefits of Raw Living Foods and diet change to her part of the world. If you are in Melbourne, you are going to want to check her out. We are so proud of her.

 

 

GRACE

Our 'new beginning' really started eight years ago. I may never have found my way to Raw Living Foods, except I was desperate to solve my own declining health. I had a tumor growing in my uterus with no signs of slowing down.
Detoxing with Raw Foods to restore order in the body and heal degenerative disease was not my original idea. A plan and protocol was first taught by the late, great healer, Dr. Ann Wigmore. She had healed her own cancer using Raw and fermented foods. Before her miracle, she had been a white pastry junkie. This was a woman I could relate to and trust. It was her belief that no matter how sick you are, you can restore your own health if you give your body the right tools to work with. That gave me the courage to try. I owe my healing success exclusively to her work.
My quest to get well led me to new lands I didn't know existed. It granted me grace and gifts I hadn't expected. I joined the plant-based movement to get myself back on track. It has transformed my health, as well as giving my life clearer purpose and passion.
Joseph, my husband, a nurse for twenty years, watched the new foods change and transform my health. He too would bravely confront the foods that were causing him harm. My household would wake up 100%.
Together we began by building a Raw Food Meet-up group in our community. The first year there were about ten to fifteen people. Today we have 360 members. People would come to us and say they wanted to go deeper with the diet, so we created Diet For Living Center and began classes teaching the 'Raw Food Basics'. We wanted to spread the word even further, make the circle bigger.
So we added 'Diet For Living School of Natural Nutrition', with global reach. The school is Board Certified by the American Association Of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), allowing us to be recognized as a Higher Educational Institute. As a graduate of our program, if you choose, you are eligible to receive international Board Certification from AADP. Their Holistic Health Practitioner Certification helps you instill trust while expanding your professional development. Your success is important to us.

THE BIG 'WOW' NEWS

According to the National Centers For Disease Control and Prevention "more than 133 million adults in America are living with at least one chronic disease, such as obesity, diabetes or cardiovascular disease. The cost of managing their care is estimated at an astounding $270 billion a year." These are not just numbers. These are our friends, family, loves ones, our communities and maybe even us. The National Center goes on to say "growing evidence demonstrates these diseases can largely be reduced or prevented through education and behavioral changes." It's easy to conclude that the greatest impact on the future of health today and tomorrow will be teaching people to eat lifesaving innovative foods.
These are exciting times to be a Holistic Health Educator. New York City doctors are writing prescriptions for fruits and vegetables for obese and over weight patients. Called the 'Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program', patients get prescribed 'Health Bucks', redeemable for produce at more than 140 New York Farmer's Markets. 'WOW'! The program has now expanded to seven other states on the Eastern Seaboard and continues to grow. How exciting is that!!! No gimmicks, pills or potions, no mysterious supplements. Just the food's nature provides.
If you're like us, you want to be part of the solution, part of this growing movement that is seeing the world in new ways.

Believe me, I know it's frustrating to change your lifestyle when it comes to diet, replacing well-loved and cherished childhood recipes with ones using new foods that you may never have used or tasted. It can all seem like too much. But then so can being sick and hanging at the doctor's office re-reading 'People Magazine'.

When you're feeling a little blue about change, it may be time to invest in more fun kitchen tools to put the zing back into your diet.

Everyone I know adores the 'Joyce Chen Saladacco Spiral Vegetable Slicer'. I love mine. This little gizmo allows you to turn fresh foods into Raw noodles. Yea, noodles! How fabulous is that! The Joyce Chen (shes also know as the Japanese 'Julia Child') Saladacco turns almost any hard or firm raw vegetable into fine spaghetti-like strands or incredibly thin, long ribbons. My recommendation is to start with zucchinis or cucumbers, NOODLE 'EM UP, then smother them in our vegan raw pesto sauce ( recipe here at our Diet For Living Center blog).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where can you find this ingenious tool? Shop 'Joyce Chen Saladacco' at casa.com. They offer them for $18.99, on sale from $34.00. Your going to have so much fun!

We held off for years from getting a Costco Card. For so many obvious reasons. You have to pass mountains of non-foods to get to the few things you can use. And of course we prefer to shop small and local and we love and belong to our Coop. But we finally gave in when the cost of organic carrots leaped up overnight. We need a boat load of organic carrots for workshops and Raw Food Meet-up pot lucks. So there you have it. We surrendered and got the card, even though their giant dump truck grocery wagons scare me.

So while I was in there, I spotted a five pound duffle bag of raw, organic frozen mangoes, and I am still on my deep passion for mangoes, so I grabbed it up. What a bargain! During the summer we are crazy for thick, raw, creamy, cold fruit drinks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mangoes are the king of fruits, and not just for their flashy color. They rock when it comes to health benefits. Nutrient packed, extremely rich in minerals, antioxidants, vitamins, fiber and best of all, digestive enzymes. Raw mangoes contain compounds that are involved in fat metabolism and appetite control. We love them for that.

The antioxidant compounds in raw mango fruit has been found to protect against colon and prostate cancer as well as leukemia. Such good news.

This morning I made this fabulous smoothie for us that you may want to try if you too want a thick, raw creamy cold fruit drink.

OUR MANGO LOVE SMOOTHIE!

1 cup raw coconut milk

½ cup organic frozen bananas (I keep some cut up frozen at all times to use quickly)

½ cup organic frozen mango chunks

1 tablespoon organic raw agave nectar

Simply put everything in a Vita-mix or a high powered blender and blend till super smooth.

Makes 1 serving and drink right away .

LIVE HOMEMADE REJUVELAC!

Probiotics, the friendly bacteria that keep our intestinal health in balance, are not made in the body. We must extract them from external sources, our food and drink. The problem is that modern food is mostly pasteurized, killing these beneficial work horses in great numbers. Captain James Cook, the famous eighteenth century explorer, was so aware of the serious need for live probiotics foods that he packed sixty barrels of kraut for twenty seven months at sea for his crew.

Probiotics are important components of our immune system. Seventy five percent of our immune system sits in the intestines. Probiotics work by sitting at receptor sites, blocking unhealthy invaders, protecting us from illness. When our probiotic bacteria level is low, they are not available to sit at these sites. The result is an abundance of pathogens that create conditions for disease. Poor gut health leads to headaches, migraines, anemia, bone health, chronic fatigue, cancer........the list goes on. We cannot remain healthy day after day, year after year, without them.

Raw fermented foods are literally alive with flavor, nutrition and necessary probiotics. In the Raw Food Diet we know live fermented foods are the best way to keep these little sumo wrestlers up and going strong. Pasteurized yogurt will not do the trick. Probiotic supplements not stored in the fridge contain no life force to get the job done. I blogged earlier on making small batches of sauerkraut on your countertop. So easy.

Here's a recipe for making super easy Rejuvelac, a fermented drink rich in healthy microorganisms and lactic acid. It's an inexpensive drink that you can sip daily as a tonic.

OUR HOME MADE REJUVELAC

1. Using a quart Ball Jar, soak 3 tablespoons millet in fresh water for 8-10 hours

2. Drain and rinse seeds with fresh water three times a day for 2 days (I like to keep mine by the sink or I may never think of them again)

3. Rejuvelac is made using your sprouted grain and one quart of filtered water. Allow to sit on your countertop for 48 hours to mature. When ready, pour yourself 6 ounces and drink up. You may add a little fresh lemon for flavor and as a preservative to keep the Rejuvelac fresh longer. Store in fridge for up to three days.

Abundant health from us at Diet For Living Center!

No need to feel tooooo guilty during the Holidays. Every culture on Earth celebrates with special foods. It's how we gather and share. This need for special times is one of the things that make us human.

To create needed balance, wheatgrass juice is the perfect antidote to cleanse and detox your system. Chlorophyll is your best friend for making internal change, and wheatgrass juice is your best source of chlorophyll. It is known that chlorophyll strengthens the cells, detoxifies the liver, and chemically neutralizes polluting elements in the bloodstream. It's part of natures plan to restore health.
