Transitioning to eating meat after a vegan diet


For a lot of people the transition away from a vegetarian or a vegan diet can be very challenging. For some there is guilt about eating meat again while for others the problem comes from not being able to digest meat again very well.

I was a vegetarian and a vegan for some time in an effort to clear up my acne but the results were awful: the acne became worse then ever, I was loosing my hair, feeling and looking sick and pale and I was never in a good mood. Eating meat again and changing my diet completely has been the best thing for my health and today I’m sharing some tips on how to make this transition much easier.

A lot of the people that go back to eating meat again choose to adopt a paleo diet because it focuses on sustainable farming and eating meat from healthy animals that had a happy life which was free of suffering.

The tips mentioned in this video are …
1. Make peace with the decision and get over the emotional block.
2. Stick to fish and eggs initially.
3. Stick to less fatty cuts of meat initially.
4. Take digestive enzymes, probiotics and apple cider vinegar (ACV).
5. Consider hydrochloric acid supplements if necessary.
6. Drink bone broth regularly.

Top 10 best high antioxidant rich fruits


Top 10 best high antioxidant rich fruits

1 Berries
Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are rich in proanthocyanidins, antioxidants that can help prevent cancer and heart disease. Eat them frozen in a morning smoothie, toss a handful over your morning yogurt or cereal or enjoy them as an afternoon snack.

2. Walnuts
Just an ounce of walnuts, or 15 to 20 halves, is loaded with antioxidants. They’re also cholesterol-free and low in sodium and sugar. 100 grams of walnuts contain 15.2 grams of protein, 65.2 grams of fat, and 6.7 grams of dietary fiber. The protein in walnuts provides many essential amino acids.

3. Green Tea
Green tea contains high concentrations of catechin polyphenols. These compounds work in the body with other chemicals to heighten levels of fat oxidation and thermogenesis. Green tea has also been shown to be preventative against cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol.

4.Tomato
Tomatoes are by far the richest source of a powerful anticancer agent called lycopene. In fact, research has shown lycopene to be an even more powerful disease fighter than vitamin E and beta carotene. Lycopene needs fat for optimal absorption to occur. Therefore, putting the healthy fat olive oil in your spaghetti sauce is an excellent trick to increase your lycopene levels. Start including more tomatoes in your diet in the form of sliced, whole, canned, stewed or sauced tomatoes or tomato paste.

5.Grapes
The wealth of antioxidant nutrients in grapes is somewhat startling! In addition to providing us with conventional antioxidant nutrient like vitamin C and manganese, grapes are filled with antioxidant phytonutrients that range from common carotenoids like beta-carotene to unusual stilbenes like resveratrol, and the total number of different antioxidant nutrients in grapes runs well into the hundreds. It’s important to note that the seed and the skin contain the richest concentration of antioxidants. It’s very rare to find a higher concentration of an antioxidant in the fleshy part of the grape than is present in the seed or skin.

6. Kiwifruit
Kiwifruit emerged from our food ranking system as an excellent source of vitamin C. This nutrient is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, neutralizing free radicals that can cause damage to cells and lead to problems such as inflammation and cancer. In fact, adequate intake of vitamin C has been shown to be helpful in reducing the severity of conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma, and for preventing conditions such as colon cancer, atherosclerosis, and diabetic heart disease. Our food ranking system also qualified kiwifruit as a very good source of dietary fiber.

7.Artichoke Hearts
The edible parts of the globe artichoke – that is, the juicy heart and the tender inner leaves of the immature flower bud – are right there on top of the list of vegetables with the strongest in-vitro antioxidant capacity. As you may know, antioxidants are beneficial substances that protect our bodies from cellular damage caused by free radicals. When eaten regularly as part of an overall healthy diet, antioxidant-rich foods such as artichoke hearts and leaves may provide anti-aging benefits and protection against degenerative diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

8.Blueberries
Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. We recommend enjoying raw blueberries – rather than relying upon blueberries incorporated into baked desserts – because, like other fruits, raw blueberries provide you with the best flavor and the greatest nutritional benefits.

9.Strawberries
When only fruits were considered, strawberries came out 4th among all fruits. Recent research has shown strawberries to be a surprisingly fragile, perishable, and delicate fruit. Given their unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, it’s not surprising to see strong research support for strawberry health benefits in three major areas: (1) cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases (2) improved regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and (3) prevention of certain cancer types including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.

10. Red Apples
Apples are rich in antioxidant phyto-nutrients flavonoids and polyphenolics. The total measured anti-oxidant strength (ORAC value) of 100 g apple fruit is 5900 TE. Some of the important flavonoids in apples are quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2. Additionally, they are also good in tartaric acid that gives tart flavor to them. Altogether, these compounds help the body protect from deleterious effects of free radicals.

Children and Leaky Gut


Research is now pinning many childhood diseases and ailments on an impairment in the development of the gut barrier or “leaky gut.” Even some of the diseases that pop up in adult ages may actually have had the stage sent for them at infancy. According to a research study done by Norwegian research group, these ailments include:
Eczema, food allergies, celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, asthma, and inflammatory bowel disease.

The intestinal barrier begins to mature at 38 weeks of gestation and continues through out infancy. Since the gut barrier is not fully developed at birth, the microbiota is extremely important for protecting the developing gut barrier and for a proper functioning immune system. How infants get their good bacteria is from Mom through a vaginal birth and breastmilk. The breastmilk will not only supply the baby with good bacteria, but will also dampen inflammation, prevent the attaching of viruses, supply the infant with mechanisms to kill bad bacteria, supply the infant with compounds that will promote the development of the gut barrier and supply the good bacteria with prebiotics (food for them to grow). As you can see, birth and the first few months of life can set the stage for a child’s health.

Which kids are most at risk for developing leaky gut?
Children who have been born before 38 weeks of gestation, children who did not experience a vaginal birth and children who are not breastfed.

My child was born full term and was breastfed, but still has all these symptoms. Why is that?
The child’s microbiota completely depends on Mom’s. If Mom’s wasn’t very good, then the baby’s is not going to be very good either.

What can I do for my child?
I have worked with loads of Mom’s who had a c-section due to unforeseen circumstances and it was necessary to do for the safety of Mom and the child. That is OK! This is NOT a blame game. I’ve also worked with Mom’s who were unable to breastfeed. That is also OK! Knowing the facts behind leaky gut simply allows us to see it for what it is and take care of it accordingly. With that said, a child who has leaky gut or suspected of a leaky gut should get a stool analysis from a functional medicine practitioner. This is going to tell you exactly what is missing bacteria wise in the gut, what infections are there and how the immune system is functioning. You need to get to the underlying cause of leaky gut. If it’s an infection (which often times it is) this infection must be taken care of for leaky gut to actually be resolved. Meanwhile, it’s a fantastic idea to get proactive. A probiotic, especially one containing high amounts of Bifidobacterium is an excellent start. Taking out gluten and dairy will also be a huge help. If the child is having solid foods I would strongly advice adding bone broth to the diet. Bone broth has been shown to help repair leaky gut.

Signs of Aging After 3 Years Raw Vegan


I have eaten a primarily raw plant-based diet over the last three years… Here are a few of the reasons why I have decided to implement more veggie-based meals. Don’t get me wrong, I still eat PLENTY of fruits every day…but I’m just not smashing them in ala Freelee/30BaD anymore. Fruits absolutely saved my life and healed me from so many different serious conditions… I suffered from debilitating chronic fatigue, severe clinical depression and anxiety, bulimia, cystic acne, dermatillomania and trichotillomania, chronic UTI’s, Candida, alcoholism/addictions, and PCOS… I believe that fruits are the healers and veggies are the builders. This is a new channel, but if you are interested in my message then please hit subscribe… I plan on sharing a lot of awesome and truly unique recipes with you that I have been creating over the years… both raw and VERY clean cooked (steamed, no oil, little to no salt)… Thank you and much love!!
