Just last weekend I visited annual NY Life Expo where different natural holistic vendors, doctors and health experts offer their services, products and conduct educational lectures. I love to check out who and what’s new, what’s exciting on the market and listen to some educational presentations. There is always something to learn, be curious about, rise questions observe and experience. My favorite booth to tour is always Vitamix. There is continuous abundance of interesting recipes, new colorful upgraded machines with fancy buttons to press and turn. This is one piece of equipment I truly can’t live without in my kitchen. As I was passing by the Vitamix station the pitch man was demonstrating how easy it was to make delicious icecream. He have put to his mix: some carrots, spinach, bananas, berries, strawberries, peaches and I almost fainted when I saw that food combo being blended. After being lectured at Hippocrates Health Institute on the right food combining I couldn’t remain silent and pointed out to him that he was poorly combining all ingredients. He lifted his paused face from the pitcher not understanding what I was talking about. He answered firmly that once you have your own Vitamix you can put and mix whatever you wish. Immediately I was rushed to the side by another Vitamix representative who informed me that I was making to much co-motion for other potential clients who were being programed how to make a “booz”.

Lack of proper information or ignorance can cause a lot of unnecessary suffering and discomfort in our body. For years that was my main concern. I didn’t understand why did I have fireworks effect in my stomach. I felt bloated after each meal despite my conviction that I was eating healthy diet. I didn’t know that fruits and nuts didn’t belong together in cereals. I had no clue that fruits shouldn’t be mixed with vegetables. I wasn’t aware that tomato is a fruit and does not belong in a salad. For a short time I was designed by a nutritionist a “nutritional” atomic bomb smoothie that consisted of the following: banana, spinach, peach, pineapple, coconut meat, strawberries, avocado, spiritualina, 1tbs of coconut oil or olive oil, 1 tbs of macca powder, 1 glass of almond milk, 1 date. Just imagine how poorly it was combined. Additionally it was overloaded with extremely high caloric content. I was to scared to count. I felt heavy and bloated all day after drinking it. At the time I didn’t understand why my weight was sky rocketing.

The most commonly served improper food combining is protein with starches. (meat and potatoes most of us grew up on)  The after thoughts cause gas, heartburn and uncomfortable bloating. Various digestion process of wrongly combined foods enables the food to get digested and body can’t adept to assimilate the nutrients. Our digestive system gets sluggish and can’t eliminate waste deposits.  It creates various gases in the body, including sulfur. The more ingredients goes into our stomachs the more chances of creating Digestive explosions. Combining starch and avocado is another example of bad food combining that can only contribute more sparks to the flamed stomach. We digest food at various time frames in various acid/alkaline environments.

Here is a list of food-combining groups

protein: seeds, nuts – digest on average within 4 hrs

starches: sprouted grains, sprouted legumes, hard winter squashes, sweet potatoes & yams – digest on average 3 hrs

vegetables: sprouted greens, fruits vegetables, leafy greens, low starches root vegetables – digest on average within 2.5hrs

fruits: acid (grapefruits, lemons, oranges, strawberries), sub-acid – apples, apricots, most berries, grapes, kiwis, mango, pears, peaches, sweet – bananas, all dried fruit, persimmons – digest on average within 2hrs

melons have excellent benefits when eaten alone  digest on average within 15-30mins

tomatoes are fruits not vegetables contrary to general understanding. Eaten alone they are beneficial to cleanse your liver of deposited fats.

One of my favorite breakfast meal used to be oatmeal or granola with almond milk and massive amount of fruits and nuts. Little did I know that this combination of starch and sweet fruit created fermentation and alcohol in my body. Basically I was boozed.

Nutritious combinations of foods are avocado and greens, avocado and sub-acid fruit, protein and sprouts with leafy greens, starches and sprouts with vegetables.

Here are properly food combined healthy delicious breakfast suggestions and smoothie recipes for you:

1. banana, peach, berries, sprouts like alfalfa sprout, with or without splash of coconut water. 

2. Pineapple, peach, berries, avocado, alfalfa sprout with or without splash of coconut water.

3.  1 glass of raw almond milk, 1 date,  1 tbs of chia seeds. Blend all in Vitamix or other blender until creamy smooth. For being super duper you can add digestive enzymes, probiotic and blue green algae to any of the above smoothies and cerals. 

4. Sprouted dehydrated buckwheat mixed with water or buckwheat milk. You can add pumpkin pie spice, pinch of cinnamon, or a drop of stevia. 

If you ever make a mistake or poorly food combine just take some digestive enzymes and it will help you to speed up your digestion process.

Enjoy

It is not surprising that stones have many health benefits apart from its breath taking beauty of colors, shapes and luminosity. They can lift one’s mood, alter the vibration and enchant us with its uniqueness. If you don’t believe me try to visit some crystal exhibition and you will effortlessly be switched to tranquility and incredible vibration charge. Stones have been used in Ayurveda madison, meditation, massage therapies, esthetic madison,  to treat and heal several maladies. Old Ages knew it best when they used them through their religious and spiritual ceremonies and ancient healing.

Our body is mainly build of several minerals. Without them we can’t function properly. We are vibrating charged creatures. Slight mineral depletion in our body immediately sends an alarming signal putting the red refill light on.

Stones can have huge impact on our health if we let them. Like Magnetite, found in internal ear and brain, or silicon dioxide present in our cells. It serve our body as agent of transmitting and receiving particularly being sensitive to crystal emissions. Crystals are my favorite stones . They are divine in shapes, sizes, and their presence makes me safe and protected. They are live stones with high vibration frequency transmitting energies. We all have diversity of complexion in comprehending and receiving these vibrations. I was very spell blinded and fascinated when I have visited 2 years ago crystal museum in Florence, Italy. It felt like being in a candy store where instead of sugar rush I was stoned. It felt like being underwater admiring its multidimensional colorful flora. I had no idea how many different kind and sorts of crystal existed. The room was sparkling with extra charged energetic vibrations. For some people each astrological sign has its own stone.  Amongst the stones with the most healing virtues, the Malanchite is pioneering with its anti-inflammatory power. It diminishes arthritis, arthrosis and rheumatism. I also love turquoise. Its color vibrance is perfect match in heaven bringing equilibrium and well-being. It purifies and fights bacteria. Another stone worth mentioning is Tiger Eye. It strengthens the bones and is excellent for the liver. The garnet acts on the blood flow, on the heart as well as on fertility. To fully activate stones healing power its importance of acupuncture to keep them in contact with the skin. I would advise you to wear a pendant, bracelet, or charm and benefit from its healing power
