Most of us perish prematurely as a result of our dietary folly. Populations with low death rates from the major killer diseases—populations that almost never have overweight members—consume more than 75 percent of their calories from unrefined plant substances. This is at least ten times more than what the average American consumes. 1.
Paleolithic diets have become all the rage, but are they getting our ancestral diet all wrong? Right now, one half of all Americans are on a diet. The other half just gave up on their diets and are on a binge. Collectively, we are overweight, sick and struggling.
If the members of the American medical establishment were to have a collective find-yourself-standing-naked-in-Times-Square-type nightmare, this might be it. They spend 30 years ridiculing Robert Atkins, author of the phenomenally-best-selling ''Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution'' and ''Dr.
It occurred to me this week that I hadn’t yet posted the video clip that inspired me to go back on the Paleolithic Diet when my symptoms returned earlier this year, which is a real shame, as it is a major eye opener! See for yourself: This should be of particular note to all my skeptics out there (and I love you, keep asking the hard questions so that science will continue to progress, it would never exist without you) that this is a TRAINED DOCTOR, not some natural medicine raw food vegan hippie, who herself admits she believed the party line that “diet has no shown link to autoimmune disorders”!
A new experiment: Dr Wahls' super-nutrient paleo diet, 9 cups veggies a day | Julianne's Paleo & Zone NutritionI’ve just finished reading “Minding My Mitochondria: How I overcame secondary progressive multiple sclerosis” By Terry Wahls, MD If you haven’t already see the viral video of Dr Wahls talking about her reversal of Multiple Sclerosis, you must, it is inspiring.

Dr Terry Wahls is a medical doctor who was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis in 2000.
By Cindy Micleu, MTCM, LAc. Winter is the ideal time for nourishing the Kidneys, and soup is the perfect winter food. Bone broth is prepared in cultures around the world as both a tasty, healthful soup and an easily digested medicinal food. The prolonged cooking of bones in water results in a broth rich in nutritional constituents that promote strength, tonify blood, nourish in times of sickness and rehabilitation, and help to prevent bone and connective tissue disorders. Bone broth is commonly used in the making of high quality restaurant soups, though it is seldom made in the average modern American household.

Nix those suspicions that good, homemade food comes with an exorbitant price tag. We found exactly the opposite, actually. If we roll up our sleeves and make homemade pasta, cookies, or just about any other food, it costs a whole lot less than buying the pre-made versions.
Blue, Brie and Camembert cheese types including a cross between these mold types made from kefir is quite simple. Such cheese can be prepared with Kefir-Leban, as a 100% kefir base explained above, which is pressed, inoculated and incubated to mature the cheese. The mold breaks down the more complex molecules of protein and fats, and impart the characteristic sharp taste to Blue cheese. That taste is due to the fungal metabolites, butyric acid and ammonia.
Home » Full List EWG analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the US Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for these popular fresh produce items.

I’ll admit it—my workday lunches can get pretty boring. I always think I’m going to finally make use of all those delicious recipes I’ve been pinning away , but then nighttime rolls around and I’m too busy watching really important things like The Bachelorette and Vampire Diaries . And then morning comes, and I’m running around like a headless chicken and I’m lucky if I remember my keys and bus pass on the way out the door, let alone find time to throw a tasty lunch together. But with a teensy amount of planning, delicious lunches can be just a few easy steps away.
