Health and Abundant Energy
From the pages of Eating for Energy
1. Eat At Least ONE Green Salad Each Day
North Americans are only consuming on average 2-3 servings of fruits
and vegetables per day! When you consider that the recommendation
is for 5-10 servings per day and that most of our produce is nowhere
near as mineral-rich as it was just 50 years ago, consuming greater
amounts of vegetables and fruit has never been as necessary as now
for nourishing your body with vital nutrients, alkalinity, and the life-
prolonging food enzymes that it needs.
2. Drink At Least ONE Fresh-Pressed Juice or Green Smoothie
We live in busy lives. No one has time for anything anymore – not
even healthy eating. Therefore, one of the greatest ways of supplying
tremendous amounts of vitamins, minerals, food enzymes, and
alkalinity to your body is through juices and smoothies. And
remember, the greener the better!
It might be tough for some people to physically eat 5-10 fruits or
vegetables during a day but with just 1 juice or smoothie you can
easily meet that quota!
3. Eat 80% Whole Living Foods (raw)
Ever wonder why animals in their natural habitats do not suffer from
the diseases that plague mankind? Isn’t also interesting that humans
are the only species on earth that apparently “needs” to cook their
food! There is no greater gift you can give your body then eating foods
in their natural state – that is living or raw.
Cooking foods dramatically reduces their vitamin, mineral, and
phytonutrient content and destroys their vital food enzymes that are
so beneficial to our health. Simply incorporating more raw fruits and
vegetables into your diet can make a profound difference in how you
look and feel…and in no time at all!
4. Eat Every 2-3 Hours (but only if you’re hungry)
It’s a fact - most people eat too much food! It’s no wonder that more
than 60% of the North American population is overweight. One of the
reasons for this is eating copious amounts of “empty foods”. These are
foods that have no nutritional value. Eating empty foods only prompts
you to eat more food since your body is not receiving the nutrients it
By eating smaller “nutrient-dense” foods more frequently throughout
the day you will avoid cravings caused by blood sugar irregularities
and you will also tend to eat less since your body will now be receiving
all the nutrients it needs.
5. Eat Meat No More Than 2 Times Per Week
Let’s face it – meat is detrimental to your body. You can turn a blind
eye if you want but the truth is that meat is acid-forming and causes
inflammation in the body. Both of these conditions are common to
every single disease known to mankind!
Oh, and don’t forget about the hormones, antibiotics, and inhumane
conditions in which animals (for human consumption) are raised or the
higher levels of cholesterol and saturated fats found in heavier meats.
Meat (especially red meat) also deprives your body of energy because
it requires a tremendous amount of digestive energy and water to be
broken down and assimilated into your body.
Eat alive and you will thrive,
