Wake up and Thrive! - the power is always with you!

Dear You,

If you have walked the road of my blog journey you might know that I have some serious issues with how society is structured; everything from Energy, the Economy, the Governments, our Educational system, the Medical system, The Farming system all the way to what we Eat, and more....
My issue with the above has come over time due to mine and others research
                                                         - and the application of critical thinking.

It is time for ACTION - we can all do something.

My positions stem from a immense love of life, liberty, nature and my fellow beings on this here planet; and it has profoundly changed the way I live my life, to the better!

I am driven by love:

- This is why I eat food that only does good for my health and inflicts no suffering on other sentient beings or our nature.

- This is why I think positive and loving thoughts, - and this is why I don't watch mainstream media outlets as I want to keep my mind free from  distractions, the control and fear that is constantly being transmitted.

- This is why I don't work a 40 hour week or will put my children in the hands of the state. I value my time, and I use all of it for me, even the time I do work.

- This is why I am working towards self-sufficiency.

- This is why I spend my money on local products made by individuals or small individual companies.

- This is why I attend mass demonstrations and share information with people not in the know (or people still not willing to wake up).

- This is why my approach is non-violence.

- This is why I am living a life that is being wholly true to myself, and I enjoy it fully!



On that note, I would like you to watch this film; THRIVE! It is well made and researched and can be the most important film you will ever see... and if not for you, think about your children and people that you hold dear.

It really is time for EVERYONE to become an activist. an activist for a better situation and a better life for ALL!.


You really are making yourself a favour if you take the time to watch this film, and not only for yourself, but for everyone living on this planet.... It is important to remember that if you have the ability to see this film, you are privileged - Please use that privilege for everyone!

For the REVOLUTION, which is already upon us, be in peace and in love.

It's all good!

Much Love!

10 000+

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased that my blog has reached 10 000 views, it feels like some sort of mark in my blog carrier, a carrier that I have to say, I take very loosely - as you might notice on the frequency of my writing...

I am truly a verbal person, as in, that is the way I prefer to present ideas, thoughts and information:
-` by speaking about it.`

That said I do highly enjoy the writing part, anyway. to celebrate i will share this here clip with you, which is according to me both funny and very to the point.


Keep coming back for more my lovelies!

Much love,

Wake up!

This documentary, House of Numbers,  has received various awards and rightly so. It deals with the subject of HIV/AIDS; and in so doing it touches on so many of the issues that we are facing in the world today.

The Synopsis (as taken from www.houseofnumbers.com):
What is HIV? What is AIDS? What is being done to cure it? These questions sent Canadian filmmaker Brent Leung on a worldwide journey, from the highest echelons of the medical research establishment to the slums of South Africa, where death and disease are the order of the day. In this up-to-the-minute documentary, he observes that although AIDS has been front-page news for over 29 years, it is barely understood. Despite the great effort, time, and money spent, no cure is in sight.

Born in 1980 (on the cusp of the epidemic), Leung reveals a research establishment in disarray, and health policy gone tragically off course. Gaining access to a remarkable array of the most prominent and influential figures in the field -- among them the co-discoverers of HIV, presidential advisors, Nobel laureates, and the Executive Director of UNAIDS, as well as survivors and activists -- his restrained approach yields surprising revelations and stunning contradictions.

The HIV/AIDS story is being rewritten, and this is the first film to present the uncensored POVs of virtually all the major players -- in their own settings, in their own words. It rocks the foundation upon which all conventional wisdom regarding HIV/AIDS is based. If, as South African health advocate Pephsile Maseko remarks, "this is the beginning of a war...a war to reclaim our health," then House of Numbers could well be the opening salvo in the battle to bring sanity and clarity to an epidemic clearly gone awry.

Please take the time to watch this; you might just wake up; and life is better lived when you are awake!

It is time to wake up from your hypnotized state that society has placed you under. You need to actively wake up to the reality of things and realize that the PR machine is working overtime to keep you under its control.

You are free!

Much Love,

The Observing and Masternig of your emotions

This is a BIG one!

How do you stay in control of your emotions, rather than letting your emotions control you?

Emotions are important, they can help you guide your life. If you know how to use them and if you use them correctly.
If not, they run your life for you, without you even knowing or having a real say in the matter. This is what we want to avoid. It is important to be in charge, and to get to know your emotions.

Emotions change your physiological state: your breathing, your posture and your thinking; it changes your body chemistry - in other words, it changes you!

Emotions dictate your day-today-life. As you react to your surrounding; through anchored cues, which pull an emotion to the forefront, and run the show for you.

Lets see what the dictionary  says about it:

  1. A mental state that arises spontaneously rather than through conscious effort and is often accompanied by physiological changes; a feeling: the emotions of joy, sorrow, reverence, hate, and love.
  2. A state of mental agitation or disturbance: spoke unsteadily in a voice that betrayed his emotion.
  3. The part of the consciousness that involves feeling; sensibility: 


How do you master your emotions then?

It has to start with learning to observe yourself - recognizing when you are in different emotional states, and how your body and thoughts are affected by it - posture, facial expression, breathing, focus, thoughts etc.

Secondly observe your thoughts, truly stay with them. Observing what you think, and how your thoughts affect you. This might be a tricky one; it's like being a second awareness in your head - "seeing" what you think.

Monitor your thoughts, and your emotional state with it. Get to know your feelings, and learn to recognize when you are under the control of a certain emotion.

If you want to break a negative emotion coming on, do something unexpected, like clap your hands, spin around, jump, slap yourself - anything - to break your mind starting to run it's normal program, with the undesired emotion.

Just going for a walk or a light run will help your body chemistry, and turn around a sour mood. Or doing two of the following : Change your posture to a good one, put a smile on your face(even if it's a fake one), focus your thoughts on the positive, control and slow your breathing - taking deep slow breaths through your nose.

In Conclusion.

To master your emotions practice to observe your thoughts - learn staying aware of what you think
- and how you think about it.

As this sets you in the direction of your emotion.

A smile, a good posture and calm breathing will also put your mind in the right direction.

The better you get on observing yourself the easier it gets to halt and turn negative emotions once they start. You will also find that you will also experience less "negative" emotions.

Just for the record.

I don't really think there are such a thing as "Good" or "Bad". As, "it's all good" - however there are emotions that benefit your life and there are emotions that just help to give nuance to "the life experience". It is important to feel all emotions, but equally important to be in charge of your emotions so that you are the one who act, and not the emotion.

I mean, is it you or your emotions who buy/eat/choose/do/want: "the new I-pod", "the red one", "just a small chocolate", "a coke", "a line of coke", "a cigarette", "the chips", "a newer version", "delivered pizza", "ohhh the shiny one" and "whatever else they are advertising nowadays" or "whatever else you use to numb your emotions"

Good reading on the subject are among many others:
Paul Ekman - Emotions Revealed
Daniel Goleman - Emotional Intelligence

Social Media and Birthdays

Social media like i.e. Facebook is mostly a place for narcissism, networking or voyeurism of various forms.
It can also be seen as a a lazy persons contact list, or as a place to waste huge amounts of time playing with various applications.

In other words, they are not really that social like the name suggests.

However on your birthday the social interactions seems to flourish. People suddenly decide to use the media to be social, A simple click and a (true) heartfelt message later, and you have done a truly social act.

You have made someone feel special and thought of, although everyone involved really knows it is due to the reminder in the corner. But that doesn't matter, a well wishing, is always a well wishing, electronically reminded or not.

So, for all of you who uses social media to congratulate me, thank you very much, it warms my heart, and expect the same in return, when I see your name under birthdays today. as this is a good excuse to socially interact via social media.

Much Love

Inspiration - rewiring

Hello my Lovelies!
the importance is not to know things, but to be what you know!

Time to wake up!

Bruce Lipton is rather phenomenal, and one of P's favourites, she found this yesterday and has acted, she is now determined to start being what she knows, rather than just knowing but not being... and that is awesome news...

Be present with your concious, watch the 'program play', then re-record the 'tapes' needed

Money and Revolution (eiher or (or both) it's up to you)

The following started off the discussion on the Revolution, and I quote:
A revolution is bound to happen within this century. Drastic measures and changes will occur. Hopefully dropping the money system completely. Any ideas on how and what’s going to happen?
 An interesting discussion followed, mostly centring around the argument if money is the blame or if there is some other issue that is causing all (supposed) world problems.

This is what I had to say about the issue:

Money is a state of mind!

Money is not the problem, there is money everywhere, as a matter of fact, there is more money in the world now than there has ever been before… money can literally be made-up from thin air, I mean, that is (really) how it’s made. This means you can make money, because it is as real as you make it…Money is just a token of exchange, if you don’t like it don’t use it.

And if you don’t use money, you would have some sort of exchange of goods and services. But in any case, the important thing to understand here is that money is a state of mind, just like everything else, it’s a belief in both the actual sense – the fact that we give it value – and a belief system – The beliefs you have about yourself; the beliefs about your situation, your relationships with money etc.

Naturally this belief system goes further than just money, whatever you hold to be true, will be so. If money is the issue, well then get yourself out of the money system – make yourself self sufficient, or change your belief, both are liberating.

- not needing money and having plenty of money.

So the revolution then?

Well the revolution is here all around you, and it starts with you, the individual. Like Ghandi said, be the change you want to see in the world

the revolution will not come to you, because it is already in you,


If you don’t like the system, change the system, lead, don’t follow, live like you want the world to live, don’t wait for the world to live like you want.


To read the full discussion go to High Existence

Much Love!

This is why the time for the revolution is now!

This is sadly more common than one might believe!

The Police is supposed to protect you, the citizen, however they are more than often used to stop you exercising your free rights as a human; They are used to terrorize and to make you scared.

The danger is when people follow orders, and don't ask questions

Live food - Raw food - Heated food - Dead food - Deadly food

What do you eat?
If you find that you are eating mostly from the Deadly food list maybe it is time to think twice about your eating habits.

Live food - this is food which is alive
Shoots and Sprouted seeds and nuts
Wild or Organic leaves/fruits/mushrooms/vegetables/flowers/berries/grasses. consumed straight after picking
Insects (eaten by mistake or with purpose as a part of the above)
Eggs (as above, picked from the nest)
Living bacterial cultures - sauerkraut/nut or seed cheeses - this can be either raw or dead foods that you make alive with foreign bacteria through, for example fermentation

Raw food - food which has not been heated.
Dried Fruits

This one is easy, anything that has not been heated. Full of enzymes and fibres (if plant products), vitamins, minerals, good fats etc.

Heated food and/or Dead food - food that has been heated.
The nutritional value has decreased and the water has for the most part been cooked out of it. The molecule structure of the food changes and enzymes are killed. Some foods can have certain compounds released better through cooking, for example due to the fibres breaking down.
Depending on how you prepare the food it will be more or less dead. When I say dead food, it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, as in some cases you will receive more energy (calories), however you will not come close to the nutritional content in raw or live foods.

Superior ways of heating foods are: steaming, stir-frying in a wok using lime or water (not oil), using the oven on low-heat, and boiling (soups).

Deadly food - food that actively does harm to your health and your organism.
OK, here are the killers, I have more or less put them in the order that I rank them when it comes to damaged caused, particularly the first seven:
Soda - any kind of soda, you know them, Coke and all the rest.
Sugar - refined sugar in particular - sugar is (a) seriously addictive and harmful (drug). Avoid at all cost.
Flour - particularly white flour.
Artificial/Chemicals - Aspartame and all the other scary conservatives and e-numbers, they cause you serious harm.
Fast food - or more appropriately named, Junk food (you are what you eat, junk=trash people)
Ready Meals - same as fast food, it is trash!
Cooked or hydrogenated fats - Deep fried foods, or heated fats in general - seriously a bad idea.
Refined salt - Pure Sodium, if you want salt, change it for a natural salt, with the minerals all intact, a real salt has colour (red, grey, pink, purple, black) any colour but white.
Smoked foods - the smoking process creates carcinogens.   
Dairy- pasteurized dairy, no matter what the add campaigns say, it's bad news. It has puss, blood, hormones, vaccines, the protein casein (which promotes cancer growth), and it causes serious mucus build up in your lungs and sinus. Furthermore, it promotes asthma and allergy, and if you are not white European you will have even bigger problems with dairy. 
Soya - Most likely GM - Full of female hormones and other nasty substances, if you want to eat this your best bet is to eat small amounts and make it yourself (then it is a live food)
Meat - another dark horse to your health, if you really want to eat meat, eat only organic meat and fish from clean water, and do so in small amounts, and infrequently. Wild game is the best meat you can eat - pig (pork), cow (beef) and commercial chicken are some of the worst. And naturally sausages and hot dogs, they are nasty things and don't really deserve to be called meat. 
Alcohol -not a food but it has to be on here, as it does your body serious harm, if you want to drink, do so modestly and infrequently.

Simple tips that will get you away from the Deadly list are:
  • Change your products from refined products to unrefined whole products - wholegrain etc
  • Substitute your rice/pasta/potatoes etc. for Quinoa
  • Change your soda drinks for fresh juice or water 
  • Start using a real salt
  • Use the cooking tips as given under heated foods
  • Stop using your microwave oven
  • Stop buying fast food, McDonald's and Co does not serve happy meals, they serve depression.
  • Always eat organic. Particularly meat products.
  • Start reading the ingredients on the products that you buy, if they have conservatives, sugar, salt, hydrogenated fats and soya lecithin (to just mention a few) just don't buy it.... if you really want cookies, well do like your grandmother, make your own (but use unrefined sugar and wholegrain flour)

Simple tips to improve your health through the diet:
  • Eat a fruit before every meal
  • Don't drink with your meal
  • Drink plenty of water in-between meals
  • Drink a fresh juice every day
  • Start your day with a Green smoothie
  • Chew your food properly and eat in a calm state
  • Give thanks for your food
  • Leave two hours after eating before going to bed
  • Feel no guilt in combination to your food choices, eat and love it.

That's it for now people, Love yourself and treat your body with respect, it deserves it.

PS. at the moment the only animal products I eat are honey, bee pollen and insects (unknowingly).

Saturday shopping list

To complete the week: To give you an idea of what we eat, today we bought:

6 Small Watermelons - 6 Apples - 60 small Kaki/Persimmons - 2 Pineapples - 6 red Bell-peppers - Two Couves/Kale - Grapes 750g - 2 different kind of Green Leafs - and 1 red Cabbage

We have plenty of greens in the garden still. and we drink sugar cane juice perhaps 2 - 3 times a week.

This way we have a lot of choice of healthy food to eat - and we vary what we get. Every so often we go and stock up on seeds nuts and some dried fruits, but we don't eat too much of that, and when we do, it is either soaked or sprouted.

Much love

You are not NORMAL

Normal changes both with time, culture and customs.
What normal then is, is always relative.

Are you normal?

Normal as an adjective, here are the first three definitions from Collins English Dictionary:

1. usual; regular; common; typical the normal way of
                doing it the normal level
              2. constituting a standard if we take this as normal
              3. (Psychology) Psychol
               a. being within certain limits of intelligence,
                   educational success or ability, etc.
               b. conforming to the conventions of one's group

I am not Normal!

I don't quite remember when I realized that I wasn't normal, however it must of happened quite early on in my journey as a human being.

Sure, I've tried to be normal many-times, all with varied success.

Using the definitions of normal above; I can honestly say that the less normal I am the better I feel. The more fun I have, the more I experience and the more I achieve.

Many strive to be normal, to be accepted, not to stick out, or to create ripples.

But here is the thing, YOU are not normal. you ARE unique, and that is what makes you so very SPECIAL.
Life is all about creating ripples, life is not about being accepted, but about accepting yourself.

Accepting all of you - flaws, successes, losses, background, situation, mind - you get the drift - all of it, accept it, then LOVE IT!

You are a creation of pure bliss, let it drive your life.

Much Love

cute cats - a shopping list - random music - links - sophisticated food - and a pinch of randomness


I thought I'd write you a little something

When I sit by the computer and work, I like to listen to random music, and one of my favourite places to do so is 8track where you can listen to peoples `mixed tapes`.

Press play and have a listen for the rest of the read.

I never thought I would post a picture of a cat on internet, and even less so here on my own personal blog. But here I am, embedding a mix with a bloody cat looking all comfortable,  fluffy and cute.


Today was Wednesday which is great as that means P and I go to the market and buy our food. We go twice a week, Saturdays and Wednesdays to keep us stocked up with nice fresh greens and fruits..

Today we bought> 20 green coconuts - box of bananas (probably 60-80 bananas) - 3 pineapples - 4 kg of tomatoes - 4 large avocados - box of kakis/persimmon, (12 big ones) - 16 figs - big bunch of coriander -  big bunch of dandelion leafs - and 2 massive passion fruits

We have plenty of greens in the garden so we don`t really need to buy greens, but it is nice to get something grown in a different soil.

P got some potatoes and mandioca (a root) to make gnocci for her father who is 78 tomorrow - This is also why we got so many tomatoes as I promised to do one of my famous tomato sauces... which I haven't done for about 2 years as it is cooked. I will definitely try some since P spent probably 4 hours making the gnocci (potato pasta).  To give P some company in the kitchen I created some awesome raw chocolates for her dads birthday, he loves our chocolates.

I don't use recipes and I seldom write down my own creations, but do I record them in my mind - where they usually stay.

P has however started a site in Portuguese and in English, where she is, and will share some of my recipes with you. Alongside health and nutritional information, inspiration and well-being. Naturally she has to get into the habit of writing for it, and also get me to sit down and write the ingredients list for the dishes that she chooses. To visit click the link: Comida Do Sol

Creating food that is tasty, gourmet and healthy is not only a good idea, it shows intelligence and sophistication, as well as being highly rewarding to both mind and body.

When you have friends over for dinner, or make something nice for the family, introduce something delicious and healthy. there are tons of recipes of healthy mouthwatering raw food on the internet, so it really is just to take a pick, and tweak after your own taste-buds.
I.e. This cake here sounds fantastic, try it out, I bet you will be knocked off your socks. Love Raw is an expert on desserts that are good for you and taste good, now that is cool...
I would substitute the agave for either honey or some other raw sweetener but that is the great thing with preparing things yourself, you can tweak it to your preference. to get the cake recipe go here: Love Raw

Raw desserts are not about maximum health, they are not even about raw food, they are about eating something delicious - and we all like to eat delicious food.

Check back on Saturday and I will let you know what we bought, that way you get an idea of what we eat in a week.

Much Love,

Interesting - The Mind and the Universe

It is key to know and understand your mind. How your reality is created and how your actions and reactions work, how you defend your own unconscious behaviour and how your belief system locks you inside a box.

This film is great, it is actually two films; the first one is about your mind and the second about quantum physics..
I am posting it mainly for the first film, however the second is interesting too.

oh, and thanks to Sarah for showing this to me.

Inspiration - Osho

Last  night P and I went to a `Tao temple` where we listened to a very good talk on
intention - character - destiny
it was delivered by a Taiwanese who has lived in Brazil for 10 years. There was some bowing involved before the talk started and we couldn't sit next to each-other, as men and women sat on either side, men to the right and women to the left, the bowing was also taking place separate, men first then women. I always find these sorts of habits funny and a bit strained, but you know as they say, while in Rome.

in short:
what you think, feel, talk and focus on in the now becomes your character, and your character creates your life.

Nothing he said was new to either of us. But it was the first time I have heard a Tao Buddhist speak on the topic, and it was very nice.  You cant really get enough of good reminders, so it was welcomed.

However the real reason we were there was to show a green smoothie recipe on a vegetarian cooking class held after the aforementioned presentation.

We did a very small introduction and showed a simple green smoothie and spoke about it. People showed allot of interest and  and wanted to know more. It was great fun ad-libbing in Portuguese in front of a crowd, I got rather pleased with my language skills.

anyhow, here is a clip:.

Osho is great, here he is talking about provocation, humour, contradictions, attachment and freedom.

life in the sun without sunglasses

Life in the sun is awesome, and I live it completely without sunglasses.

One of the most important vitamins or nutrients if you like, is Vitamin D, and this we get for free from the sun, to read more about Vitamin D and the process go to this post: The Sun is shining

Vitamin D deficiency is sadly rife in today's unhealthy society... the longer from the Equator you live the longer you need the sun to grace your body, and the darker pigment you have the longer sun exposure you need.

Your body, being far more intelligent than you, takes care of the whole process for you, as long as you let it...

Windows, sunscreen, clothes, glasses, and sunglasses, ruins this process.

Your eyes and the skin around your eyes regulates your skins uptake and protection,  you could say that this area tells your body to protect the skin from strong sunlight, as well as regulates the Vitamin D uptake.

Wearing sunglasses messes with your body's natural sunprotection as well as with the absorption process.

Sunscreen is by itself usually a toxic product, the rule with putting things on your skin should be:
if you won't eat it, don't apply it
as your skin absorbs it straight into your body, it doesn't even get the chance to go through the kidney for a cleans... just straight in with the toxins in your organism.

To get information of your creams/perfumes/toothpastes/lip balms/shampoos/sun screens etc please visit: http://cosmeticdatabase.com/ and find out just how toxic the products you are using are.

 Needless to say I don't use sunscreen.

Anyway, I start writing a blog about sunglasses and I end up giving you a link to see how toxic your "hygiene" products are.... so lets get back to the sunglasses...

I used to have these really sexy Gucci glasses, but P forgot them somewhere and that was the end of them... This was when we still lived in the UK, and before I had started learning about Vitamin D. Granted I wasn't impressed about having had my glasses lost, but after learning more, I came to terms with it, realizing it was for the better.

A great thing about not wearing shades is that you get used to not using protection from the sun. I was always very light sensitive, and walked around squinting every time it was a bit bright outside, but now, I can handle the brightest of days comfortably, both without hat and glasses...

So get your clothes off and get direct sunlight on your skin, and do it without wearing glasses. However avoid the sun when it is the strongest. The best time for taking sun is before 10 and after 4 or 11 and 3 depending where you live and what part of the year it is... but midday sun is always best avoided. good times for lounging in the shadows.

Shades off and enjoy the sun.

Much Love

What's the big deal with what you eat?

You are what you eat - a saying that you no doubt have heard. However, judging by how majority of people eat, I believe few people actually take in the reality of this statement.

You are what you eat - quite literally

Your body is constantly changing. Cells are dying, new ones are getting made in place of the old ones, fresh blood cells are being created, and much much more. Different cells/parts of your body regenerate with different frequency, everything from daily to yearly or more. But to give you a good idea of your body's regeneration, every 7 years you are a completely new make up of cells. Or to put it in another way; Today you are a completely new/different biological organism than you were 7 years ago.

Now here is a vital part; Your body creates its new cells from the minerals, vitamins, lipids, amino acids etc. that it receives from what you digest. Or to paraphrase once more; The compounds of what you digest becomes you!

This is pretty powerful information; You are constantly creating the new you, and play a direct role in the creation; You are the one who choose the building materials. You are the one who decides what your body will be made from.

You quite literally have the choice to degenerate by poor dietary choices or regenerating yourself by eating the best food ever.

Life without TV

A fated spring day in 2005 our TV stopped working.

P and I took it as a sign of sorts, and agreed on not buying another.

I can honestly say that it has been one of the best decisions taken in my life.

I never really spent much time thinking about the decisions I've taken in life and how they rank towards one and other, but now writing this, I can easily say that deciding to live without TV is among the top 10 best decisions, together with perhaps studying in the States, moving to London, changing my diet and moving to Brazil.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand: Life without TV

Living life without TV gave me a minimum of 3 hours extra per week, but to be more realistic an extra 8-10 hours or at times much more per week. And I say extra, because watching TV is dead time. It is time that you can spend doing things that is good for you, or give you something in return.

Time better spent improving your life; playing, learning, talking with friends and family, exercising, taking up a new hobby or just laying on the couch daydreaming etc.

why not? Innit!

Posted this on a Swedish Raw food community website I very recently joined, and thought I would share it with you, don't know why I was writing in English in a Swedish community and on a Swedish site, but since I did, and it's worth reading. I thought, lets repost it here.
Posted a talk by Jane Goodall on my blog you might be interested to see it. About 30 minutes long.

She doesn't talk to much about diet but it might interest you that:

bonobos (dwarf chimps), the closest DNA link to humans, prefers, over all other foods, figs. Fresh figs... oh and figs being very sweet and delicious would probably have maggots and insects in them.

the once who eat meat (rarely), not all of them do you see, are the once who are more aggressive.

my conclusion



Jane Goodall - a very inspiring woman!

Thanks to Adam for this link.

The future is in our hands, we can either drop it,or we can carry it forward with care. The choice is always with you, in every act that you do!

much love

More water info!

Water: The source of all life.

About 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water and 97% of this is salt water. Although the salt can be removed (desalination), it is a difficult and expensive process. 2% of the water on earth is glacier ice at the North and South Poles while less than 1% of all the water on earth is fresh water that we can actually use.

Embedded water, a hidden ecological problem

Various forecasts predict that the worlds population will exceed 8 billion in 20 years time, increasing global demand for food and energy with the need for fresh water rising by 30 percent. This will place an unsustainable stress on the worlds eco-systems. This could lead to a perfect storm, a term used by the UK governments chief scientist, Professor John Beddington, to describe future shortages of energy, food and water.

What many people fail to appreciate is that consumption goes beyond simple use of water in everyday life. There is the more important embedded water - the water used to grow food.

You are what you drink

Water is the fountain of youth, and the elixir of life.

When you were born you were about 90% water. Think about it, that is allot of water. and when you are born, you are fully alive.

At the moment you are around 70% water.

When your body reaches 50% water, you are clinically dead.

We lose about 2.5 litres of water every day, through normal functioning, we need to get that back through our food, our skin and through drinking water.

Most people don't drink enough water, and water is life.
To make it easy, water is involved in most bodily functions, and if you want them to function well you want your body to stay hydrated with new fresh water.

Most people are chronically dehydrated, this shows up in various ways, everything from asthma and IBS to headaches and dry skin.

If you are overweight you can usually lose easy kilos by just starting drinking the right amount of water.

Your body needs about 1,5 - 2 litres per day to function normally, if you loose allot of liquid due to exercise or hot weather, more might be good. the more you weigh the more you need. and depending on your state of dehdration, and how dry your food is you might need, much more.

Start your day with plenty of water

Before you leave bed in the morning, drink a large glass of water (the larger the better) first thing in the morning...

Drinking warm water in the morning is also very helpful and cleansing for the system.

Recipe to health

Poliana is happy to live on green smoothies, fruits, nuts and more smoothies, flax crackers and veggies. she likes to have things as they are, without processing.

So do I, but I also like to eat more elaborate things... meals "foody stuff" like a cocked diet offers... So every so often I make something.

I don't use recipes, and I don't usually write them down.

so this time I thought I would write down a recipe for you. I am making it as I write, and as I find ingredients to put in.

I am making a "Spicy Thai Coconut Curry" with "noodles"

2 Carrots
1 cucumber
use a peeler to make strips of the carrot and the cucumber. then toss together in a bowl, and put to the side. if you have a mandolin you can use it, the smaller and thinner strips you make the better it will be.

Dice the cucumber seed house (the centre) and any cucumber bits you get over and put to the side, we'll add them to the curry later for a bit of exciting texture.

The Curry:
1 whole coconut
open the nut and put the coconut water and coconut meat in a blender. add perhaps 3 glasses of water and start blending (for a good 3 minutes, until it is liquid, and smooth). pour your mixture through a sieve to separate the pulp from the liquid.
you will use the liquid. put the pulp to the side (we'll use it for a simple desert).

quick green smoothie!

Sitting drinking a green smoothie!

what is that?

a smoothie, which is green.

any dark leafy green of your choice, water and fruit of your choice.
Banana, peach, apple, pear... well you get the drift.

at the moment I am drinking a smoothie made from
Couve (like kale) (16 - 20 big leaves)
pint of water
4 small bananas
one avocado
juice from a small lime...

Blend all ingredients - except avocado which you blend in just in the end.

it isn't one for the beginners as it is tasting very green... however just put more bananas in there and maybe a bit less green and you will love it... The avo makes it nice thick and creamy.

Start your day with a green smoothie, and you will notice an improvment, no matter what dietary habits you follow...

oh and you make it in under 5 minutes, fast, simple and oh so yummy...

much love

lets see where I take it this time!

This blog is built around the Buddhist saying:
`there is no road to happiness, happiness is the road´

Which is the way I live my life, and the way I strive to live my life.

There is no end destination, the end destination is always where you are...

The now is your only time, but the now doesn´t exist. Just like time doesn´t exist.
Time is man made, we have created it to get power over nature, and also over ourselves. It is a creation of and for society

There is a constant flow, and there is a movement of the earth and the moon, (and to a larger degree of the sun and the galaxy), so I am not disputing that there is a time continuum, or as I like to see it, a never ending change.

However there is no calendar, showing the time for the earth, or hours and seconds, these are all made up equations to try to capture a moment: past, future or present. Time is created to try to freeze moments, but moments can´t be frozen, they can only change... And as you change, the moments change, the past, which doesn´t exist (any-more) can be changed, depending on how we look upon the past in the present...

witness reports from crime scenes are good examples. There are usually as many different realities of the same ´past´event as there are witnesses. This is because the past event no longer exist, only a person in the present looking back at the past.

My mornings are started with the drinking of around a litre of water upon wakening... a big glass before I leave the bed, and then I fill the glass and drink it again, during the waking process... I go to the bathroom and I empty, making my day start with a nicely clean and empty intestine each day...

I eat a raw vegetarian diet, rich in fibres and water.
I avoid eating 2 hours before I go to bed, and I avoid eating late at nights, so that my body can have time to do both the digestive process and general body maintenance while I sleep.

After I have been to the toilet, and I have finished my water, I flush my teeth with olive oil (cold pressed).
I flush and chew a table spoon of oil for 3-4 minutes, this helps my body to release toxins from the blood stream, through my mouth. I spit, then rinse with mineral salt and water, or bicarbonate soda and water; then I repeat the process. This is called oil pulling.

After this I brush my tongue a bit, and my teeth, then it is time for food. Depending on how much time I have available I either have a fruit to start me off, or I go for a green smoothie right away.

Today will be some melon, with a green smoothie following after about 30 - 45 minutes.

I always start my day with a green smoothie, which is a mixture of any dark leafy green, fruit (I usually use banana) and water, it's delicious and it sets me off for the best start of the day ever, full of energy and health.

- The water helps hydrate me and helps flush my kidney and liver in the morning.

- The oil helps me have whiter and cleaner teeth, a less toxic body and better health.

- The green smoothie helps me get a good helping of healthy greens in my stomach when my digestive fires are high, which sets for good assimilation and good energy to last.

habits create results, if you have good habits you will get good results!

Much love!

Best food ever!

first post of 2011.

it will be about food.

over the last 5-6 years I have gradually and comfortably changed my diet from:

"a normal cooked omnivore diet"
- to
"an organic cooked omnivore diet"
- to
"an organic and pescatarian diet" -
"a cooked organic vegetarian diet"
- to
"a 50-60% raw organic vegetarian diet"
- to
"a 70-90% raw vegetarian diet"
- to a
"95-100% raw vegetarian diet"

It has been a carefree and natural transition, and I have really enjoyed the food I have eaten and in all of the different stages. However where I am now; "95-100% raw vegetarian diet" is the most delicious.

My transition has been information based, and the information I have received has suited my transition perfectly.

I have gradually learnt the harms of meat, milk, eggs, heavy metals, herbicides and pesticides, soya, sugar, salt, flour, cooked fat, heating of foods, medicines, food and politics, GM products, food chemicals etc.

I have learnt of water, acidity and alkalinity, detoxing, chlorophyll, stomach acids, the immune-system, minerals, antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids, good fats, enzymes, fibres, cells, the body, the sun, the mind, bacteria, healing, spirituality, detachment, fasting and much much more...

It has been one of the best journeys ever, I have learnt, I have applied the knowledge, I have seen and felt the positive results. I have learnt more, applied, improved, and so it goes.

I have seen other people apply my knowledge and improve and I have seen them ignore the knowledge to then decline again. I have seen and felt the healing powers of the best foods, and I have seen and felt the destructive powers of bad foods.

I lately asked myself, if you know what you know, do you really let your friends and family go on like they always have done?
slowly degenerating themselves with what should really give them nourishment - their food!

I know that you can't change others, just yourself, so it is an interesting question.
