with Victoras Kulvinskas co-founder of Hippocrates

I wish you could all be here with me at Hippocrates Health Institute picking the brains of those amazing dedicated lecturers that I deeply admire. They devoted their life to a powerful mission of helping thousands to create the life filled with meaning, wisdom and  wonder.  There has been so much to absorb and digest from each speaker, and digestive enzymes had nothing to do with it. I barely had any time to sleep trying to process and sort out everything I was learning. They all brought some unique intelligence, definition of personal success, knowledge, passion, encouragement, devotion and huge heart. We were all wired up, interactive with questions and quickly grasping to each revelation as each speaker was taking the stage. I am a practical gal who likes to implement such wisdom right on the spot. My head was spinning from astonishment and flow of accurate information quickly filling up my notebook. I must say I really enjoyed immensely lectures of Victoras Kulvinskas co founder, with Wigmore of Hippocrates Institute. He is a walking wellness library ready to be shared at any asked moment. You can just turn pages in his genius brain and find answer to every inquiry. I also was drowned to Dr. Brian and Anna Maria Clements with Q&A session. They got my juices flowing much before they were physically poured and served. I got lots of clarity, and wish I could stop the time.  It was a natural progression of what  I have became aware of. They really created my own personal revolution: how I nourish my body and listen to it, reshuffle priorities, values, and choices.

This has been transformational guide to my personal inspiration. I have learned that I m now conscious of how every choice I make can have an impact on everything and everyone around. We are all like supporting family.

Here are some valuable points I took notes of and wanted to share with you:

1. Dr.Brian Clement informed us about shocking reality of what really goes on behind the door of majority food chain industries. I wasn’t aware that food chain companies hire biochemists around the clock with huge salaries to create addicting poisonous chemical formulas in our foods. 

2. I have learned great value and benefits of wheat grass, sprouts, and blue green algae. These super foods give enormous amounts of energy and vitality allowing our physique to function on optimal level. Your body and mind will thank you for it through your increased energy levels, the health of your skin, and stronger immune system.

3. Only fox can digest eggs

4. Tomato is a fruit

5. Watermelon is a new Viagra.

6. Cashews are poisonous. They are not sold raw as claimed and contained urushiol that can create significant skin rashes, and can be toxic when ingested.

7. Avocado is a source of healthy bacteria

8. The day you rest you develop muscles  

9. Fish goes rancid when is out of water for more then 20 minutes

10. Melons are meant to eat alone. They digest within 15-30 minutes

11. Coconut oil is great for teeth pulling. It will make your gums stronger and will kill bacteria

12. Mongbeans fight flu and restore gray hair

13. Right food combining: carbohydrates don’t mix with protein. Starches don’t mix with protein, fruits, avocado. Fruits don’t mix with vegetables, and protein.

14. Antibiotics don’t kill viruses but bacteria

15. To eat fruits you must be healthy. They should be 15% of your overall diet. Sugar feeds Candida and cancer.

16. Chocolate is made of agave and nibs.

17. Don’t put apple cider vinegar to food as it kills enzymes.

18. Proteins don’t put weight on, carbohydrates do

19. Dr. Clement said “Define your purpose and find your passion. Purposeful life is a life worth living”.

20. Victoras Kulvinskas said “Be you not BS”!

This content was fascinating and gaining this knowledge is priceless. Once you are in you are in for life. I m so eager to live my life as a happy and healthy adventure. If I get the gift to inspire someone the same way I was inspired by those teachers it will be the cherry on top.

IS EATING EMOTIONAL? Advantages to a vegan lifestyle

Video

Whenever I talk in social gatherings about diet, nutrition or detoxing I get everyone’s full attention. We are obsessed with image, quick fixes, sugar and prescription drugs. Majority wants to know how to set themselves free from all bad feeding habits. We tend to hold on to things we value the most. Eating is such an emotional act and letting go of some favorite unhealthy dishes can cause some psychological chaos. We are sugar addicts with set rules for devouring food. It has become a hot topic. Those who take huge effort to maintain a good quality of life will be repaid with turning clocks and enjoy more youthful vigor. Statistics tell us that those who drink, smoke, eat meat, lack sleep and rest, overwork, and stress prematurely meet the early grave. And those who manage to survive significantly reduce their quality of life.

HIPPOCRATES-92

I felt compelled to try this kinder, healthier lifestyle change to improve my health, well being and I must say the transition to living foods diet was noticeably smooth. It wasn’t a sacrifice at all. I decided to be in charge of my own rules what I could eat. It opened a new exciting window of pursuing life and its manifestations. At the heart of Veganism is compassion, it is simply an attempt to reduce the suffering of animals and understanding that they are not source of vital nutrients. I love animals but not on my plate. Life is sweet right now! In fact, it is so sweet that I am once again avoiding sugar, or rather I guess I find creative way to make it sweet vegan way.

BOOK-PROJECT-40

Giving up all animal products including meat, milk, eggs, yogurt and cheese at first seemed impossible. Just imagine spending few months in la Cote Basque, France where its all about eating world’s best cheeses, rabuggo and pata negra hams and freshly baked baguettes that tempt you from every farmer’s corner. I was asking myself how can I let go of these deceiving my health “goodies”.  Fortunately I found huge abundance of fresh organic non-GMO locally produced tasty fruits, legumes, and nuts that build full powerful immune spectrum. I turn my focus to strengthening the longevity and superior health with yoga, fitness, meditation, pure air, sunshine, oxygen rich forests, breath taking mountains, ocean waves and beautiful nature. I focus on gratitude and appreciation. Few undesired pounds just came off, energy increased, clothes fit better and seemed more colorful then usual. Its been blue print of mind reprogramming and took more then dietary changes.

A common misconception about vegan diets is that it is impossible to consume healthful levels of protein. One can easily derive more than enough protein from a vegan diet. (like sprouts and see vegetables that are protein rich) Human body thrives wholly on plant based vitamins and minerals. Most foods that you regularly eat can be made vegan with little effort. For example, you can still enjoy burritos, but instead of meat and cheese, you may substitute with nuts, beans, salsa and nut cheese with pinch of sesame and sea salt. If you have a sweet attack frozen banana or nut icecream are great solution to satisfy your sweet tooth.BOOK-PROJECT-38
We all have a responsibility to listen to our own souls and each of us desires something different and that’s a good thing. As I continue to “Vegucate” myself I am planning to  compensate fully vegan lifestyle by staying within vegan vortex, explore new recipes, throw vegan dinner parties and share this message with the world!

P.S. As always i would like to hear from you if eating is emotional for you? How does it effect your life. Share your comments, tips and suggestions with the rest of us.

Why Food combining matters

BLOG-2

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

P.S. As always i would like to hear from you about your breakfast choices and food combining. Share your comments, tips and suggestions with the rest of us.

Eat like a bird and crack the secret

SEEDS ARE NO LONGER JUST FOR BIRDS! 

ALPISTE-SEEDS++

Canary grass, Chia, hemp, Mila seeds gaining a whole new generation of fans. Those who believe that the birdseed are only for “birds” do not know the properties and multiple  health benefits which are almost miraculous!  I must say I was intrigued when I discovered all benefits deriving from its daily consumption, and decided to start testing its greatness on my own.

Care of Canary Birds

They are most nutritious and powerful on this planet. They are rich in high-quality vegetable protein.  Five tablespoons of canary grass seed contain about 9 grams of protein – which is superior when comparing it to 1lb of meat protein. Further more birdseed protein is not harmful or difficult to digest, and is very good stable amino acid assimilation.

They have always been around for thousands of years but we’re only beginning to discover their immense benefits. Very few know that it can be a great benefit for human consumption. The seeds which are very similar to flaxseeds are shiny brown, (Del Alpiste) human grade (silica free).  I buy them packaged whole grain then ground them in my magic bullet to sprinkle them over my salads, veggies or simply add them to my delicious smoothies and soups. They can be made into milk as well. (Recipe below on the page bottom)

ALPIST-1

ALPIST-4

ALPIST-3

ALPIST-2

Canary grass seed is one of the most powerful and nutritious seeds on earth because of its high content of enzymes, vegetable protein, amino acids, and antioxidants. Its antioxidant properties are very close to those found in Vitamin C. It also contains many enzymes, of which lipase is the most abundant.

BENEFITS:

Because of its high enzymatic content, canary grass seed helps to reduce the inflammation of internal organs such as the liver, kidney and pancreas, which has proved to be of great help for people with diabetes and cirrhosis. I did some serious research and here is what I found out:

  1. Helpful in weight reduction.
  2. Helpful in sleeping problems
  3. helpful to clean veins and arteries from harmful fats.
  4. Very powerful pancreatic regenerator.
  5. Helps in cases of gout, edema, gastritis and stomach ulcers.
  6. Ideal for hypertension.
  7. Provides muscle tone.
  8. Gets rid of fat deposits in the body, leading to a reduction of obesity and cellulite.
  9. Kills bacteria in the urinary tracts, thus reducing UTI’s, as well as kidney and gall bladder infections.
  10. Refreshing.

Its important to consume it raw, otherwise it looses its all properties when cooked. I also like to make milk out of it and drink it twice a day. First thing in the morning 30 minutes before my breakfast, and at night after the dinner. No other food should be followed after drinking the milk at night.

MILK ALPISTE RECIPE

Ingredients:

Five spoons of alpiste seeds + 1liter of water (4 glasses)

Process:

Rinse alpiste.

Soak five tablespoons of canary grass seeds in pure water the night before. In the morning, remove the water that has been dipped, soaked and put the birdseed in the blender, you can add soy milk and fruit to taste or simply liquefy and birdseed’s milk sweetened with honey (no sugar), which is a nutritious milk and energy to start the day (morning) and to finish it.It is very important not to sweeten the milk with white sugar, which is very harmful and irritating on your body, besides destroying the enzymes and the powerful effect of this milk. You can add some cinnamon. Avoid refined sugar whenever you can, and if you have small children do not get used to the milk sugar or candy.

Eat and drink like a bird. Ready to give it a go?

MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES IN THE KITCHEN – HEALTH POLICE IS WATCHING!

If its a guilty breakfast pleasure you are doing it wrong! Its been proven that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Unfortunately most of us either skip it or even worst stuff ourselves with all wrong choices that rob us off energy, vitality, longevity and add inches to our waist line. DR.CELEMNTAccording to the world’s top naturalpath PHD Dr Brian Clement founder of Hippocrates Institute in West Palm Beach, FL the best option to start your day and boost your energy levels is with green juices or simply liquids. Until 11am we should be consuming only liquids as the body recovers from the sleeping mode and adjusts its readiness to consume solid foods.
