It's been a long time since I did a food post. I suppose some of you don't know that I do that sometimes. There is a collection here on Beyond Meds. I also have a food blog that I've not posted on in a long time that has a lot more variation because I was doing it while my diet kept changing and changing as I learned what my body needed at any given time. ...
Food and diet has been critically important to my healing journey. Sensitivities are profound teachers that humble me again and again and teach me all manner of things about the nature of being human. I am finding more and more people who understand them in this way. What we are finding is that there is some spiritual significance in the very real (and sometimes potentially deadly) physical, biological and physiological reactions that so many people on the planet are experiencing with foods that used to be safe to eat.

Today I'm pickling sliced onions. Not only do I get yummy probiotics, I also get a quercetin rich food with enhanced vitamin C from the fermentation process. I don't tolerate quercetin supplements but do very well with naturally rich foods high in quercetin.

Today I only made enough for one serving so I used 1/4 cup of chick pea (garbanzo bean) flour. I tossed in half a small onion, a large garlic clove and a teaspoon of chia seeds. (yes I go crazy with variations) I didn't cook the onion or the garlic, I just tossed them all together with a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt and pepper too and then I blended it all with my immersion blender (my favorite small kitchen appliance). … [click on title to read more]
Ingredients: Dandelion greens, parsley, celery, turmeric, apple, beet, cucumber I actually only used about 1/3 of the beet, 1/3 of the turmeric root, and half of the apple. I added 1/2 a tablespoon of hemp oil to the juice. Many veggie vitamins are fat soluble and like to be accompanied with some fat when ingested for more complete absorption. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. This opens with a lovely poem and looks like a really wonderful and important film. Below I've included a list posts that consider our contaminated food supply… [click on title to read the rest]
