I Love Greens! Protein is Green.

[This post contains ads]

Protein. The word “protein” comes from the Greek “proteios”, meaning “of prime importance”. Yet, like written in “The China Study“, “The story of protein is part science, part culture, and a good dose of mythology.”

Nowadays, a lot of us know that we don’t need as much protein as has been stated for a long time – until now. Quite the contrary: the China Study and many more studies have shown that eating lots of protein promotes cancer and other diseases.

Quiet winter days

So again – it has been quiet here for some weeks now. Wintertime, my need to be in silence, to look inwards, to listen to my self. Combined with many things that had to be done, working in the gardens, computer work, and so on.

I really love all my tasks, yet i need to take care for staying balanced. It’s so important to find enough time for my self, and to stay focused on what is important. Discipline. Every now and then i forget this, or get overwhelmed from what is happening in my world, and am challenged to refind my inner balance. Lucky i am, as this gives me the chance to learn, again and again. Each time, i find something new, and each time i find more happiness, more gratitude. I even enjoy this state of not-being-in-balance. Embrace it, go with it.

Going raw while breastfeeding, and raising raw children

You are breastfeeding a baby or toddler, and want to transition to a raw diet? Wondering, it this is possible, and safe for your child? Will your breastmilk become somehow contaminated, oder will it become less? Would it be better to wait until your child will be weaned?
What is the way to transition to raw while breastfeeding? Is it possible, and safe, to feed your child with raw food only, right from the beginning?

As people keep asking questions like these, i decided to share my experiences with all this in this article today.

Gratitude! Feeling endlessly blessed

Minimalism. Or: Freedom begins in your mind.

Compared to many people in this part of the world, my lifestyle is quite minimalistic. Not much material safety. Minimalism, though, is not limited to material things. But, even more, refers to my mindset, my attitude, the way i handle life and its challenges

Years ago, mostly unaware of this, i started getting rid of stuff. Material ballast. Overcoming some of my fears and finding new courage … a journey still going on and leaving me feeling more and more free with each step.

Liberate yourself by practised minimalism, in all respects.

Marvelous body. All disease is a reaction to what you feed your body and your soul with

“Each of our cells is made of parts of the world that we have absorbed and transformed, all of which are enchanted food.”

A quote by Catherine Newmark.

Nutrition, but also everything else that nourishes our body, mind and soul, contributes to our health. Disease is not a consequence of viruses or bacteria, but a reaction to what we absorb.

Our body is doing its best to detoxify. To cleanse. To heal. All the time. Aging, too, is not as inescapable as you may think. What commonly is thought to be unavoidable is also a consequence of your diet, your habits, your mindset and living in accordance with your soul.

Meal Planning

Planning your meals can be a powerful tool in transitioning your diet and in establishing healthier eating habits.

Do you plan your meals? Weekly, day by day, not at all?

Read here, how i do it. Why i do it. And how planning your meals can help you transitioning to a healthier, more conscious way of eating.

How much and how accurate i plan my meals differs a lot, depending upon my current situation. If travelling, staying, the possibilities of getting my food and so on.

Note: Of course you don’t necessarily need to plan your meals to succeed and thrive living on a raw diet! It CAN be a great tool for transitioning. And, for regaining your balance if necessary.

Me, i did not do any meal planning when going raw so many years ago. I simply enjoyed this newly discovered abundance. And most of the time, i still live and eat like this. Just in times, like now, i plan my meals. Why, how, and how meal planning might be helpful for you too – this is what this article is about.

Why we eat chocolate

“Your deepest desire [is] intimacy because, in truth, you are open as love–but you assume yourself to be a separate, isolated individual. So you scheme and dream to experience in your relationship what, in truth, you already are.
You want to enjoy financial security because, in truth, you are abundance, although you assume only effort will provide a feeling of ease…. You want to eat chocolate because, deep in your heart, you are blissful fullness, though you often close to its pleasure and so seek its taste”.

von David Deida

The universe is LOVE, and you are a part of it, you are all.

Be aware of your love, your abundance, your perfection – and you won’t need food anymore to nourish your soul. To compensate. Enjoy food only when your body is asking for it.
