Raw Food Diet?

A lot of my fellow fibro fighters have been asking me if it's worth going on a raw food diet. The answer is yes! How long you should do it, and how quickly you should transition, are both conditional. I suggest a simple transition by slowly replacing some meals with raw meals. You will feel all the usual effects of cleansing at first, but when they begin to taper off you know you're ready to replace another meal. Eventually, you'll feel better and have more energy then ever before, and that is when you will be able to go completely raw. I post some recipes on here, but here is a link to a great site for raw food recipes...

Hemp Seeds

Did you know that hemp is one of the super foods? I just started enjoying this amazing food with yogurt every morning instead of granola. It has a wonderful nutty flavor, and is nutritious. It has tons of protein, omega 3, and is gluten free! It's also really good on salads and fruit.

Alkalizing Drinks

The doctors said that htey didn't think that alkalizing would help my fibro symptoms, but it did! I went from a pH level of 5 to 7.5, and my IBS, heartburn and acid reflux symptoms are gone. The heartburn got worse the first 2 days, but then were gone completely. It's been over 6 months since I've had any of these symptoms, which plagued me for 14 years! I personally prefer the Lemon Water, because it tastes the best. If you don't like the bitter taste you can add 1 packet of Stevia. Next time you get blood work done, or a UA, check your pH levels. If they aren't between 7.0 and 7.5, try one of these drinks once per day and see if you feel better. (These drinks will cause heartburn the first 2-3 days that you drink them, don't drink them if you have an ulcer, and of course always check with your doctor before changing your diet)

Lemon Water: 1/2 Lemon Juice, 1/2 Water

Apple Cider Vinegar: 1/2 Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/2 Water

Orange Juice: Freshly Squeezed, Organic Oranges

Carrot Juice: Freshly Juiced, Organic Carrots

Breakfast Burrito in Lettuce Wrap

Melt 1 tbsp natural organic unsalted butter in pan. Add diced organic potatoes on medium heat, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Stir potatoes, and cook for 10 minutes. Continue this process until potatoes are tender. Scramble 2 organic cage-free eggs. Place potatoes, eggs, Organic Valley Shredded Cheddar, diced organic tomatoes, organic spinach, sea salt, and 100% natural ketchup with no high fructose corn syrup on a large piece of organic lettuce. Wrap into a burrito and enjoy!!

For those who can’t stand long, sit while waiting for the butter to melt, and in between stirring the potatoes.

If you prefer a tortilla, then I suggest Sonoma All Natural Gluten Free Wraps.

If you are dairy free, then you can substitute organic tofu for the eggs, and Daiya Shredded Cheddar for the Organic Valley Shredded Cheddar.

More ingredients to stuff your burrito…
  • Diced organic bell peppers
  • Diced organic jalapenos
  • Diced organic onions
  • Amy’s Salsas
  • 505 Organic Green Chile Sauce
