  • Handful fresh organic cilantro leaves, rough chop
Instructions

  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add broth. Bring  to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until squash is soft, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. While the soup is cooking, toast the coconut flakes in the oven until fragrant and golden on the edges. Keep an ? on them so they don’t burn. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  4. Once the squash mixture is done cooking, taste and add  more Thai red curry paste if you want more of a POW?. Remove the soup from heat and let it cool slightly. Working in batches, move from pan to a blender (do not fill your blender past the maximum fill line!). Put the lid on and use a kitchen towel to protect your hand from steam escaping from the top of the blender as you purée the mixture. Blend until smooth. Transfer puréed soup to a large serving bowl or container and repeat with remaining batches.
  5. Now you can stir the lime juice into the blended soup ?. Taste and season with more salt if you want.  When you ladle the soup into individual bowls and are ready to serve, use a spoon to drizzle coconut milk over each bowl, then gently swirl the spoon through the topmost layer for a pretty design. Sprinkle the soup with toasted coconut flakes and a place the chopped fresh cilantro in the middle.

Want to lose as much body fat as possible? Eat spinach.

Want to lose as much body fat as possible?  Eat spinach.

A recent study from Sweden’s Lund University found that incorporating more spinach in your diet helps in losing body fat.

The study covered 38 overweight women who either consumed a beverage containing 5g of spinach extract (made up mostly of the cell membranes from spinach stems) or a placebo prior to breakfast each day.  At the end of the 3 month study, the spinach group lost 50% more weight!

A compound in the spinach stems known as thylakoids has been shown to reduce hunger and cravings for sweets and fast food by 95%.  Researchers determined that the increased weightloss in those who consumed the spinach drink was due to an overall decrease in calories as the thylakoids worked to slow down digestion, giving intestinal hormones time to communicate to the brain that hunger was satisfied.

If you’re feeling more satisfied you are less likely to snack on all the wrong foods.  Spinach can be your “golden ticket” to increased weightloss and a flatter stomach.

Here are some easy ways to get more spinach in your diet (be sure to include the stems):

1. Throw a couple handfuls of spinach in the blender along with your next protein shake.  While it may

change the color, it has virtually no taste.

2. If you’re into juicing, add spinach to your next juicing recipe.

3. Enjoy a spinach salad or sauteed spinach as part of any meal.

?Can Diabetics Eat Fruit ? – Interview With Tasha Lee

 

Learn the truth about nutrition, not what we’ve been lead to believe…

One of my teachers and mentors from The International School of Detoxification, Marcie  shares “I’m a type 1 diabetic and I’ve cut out two shots a day and over 50 units by adopting a high fruit diet.” She and countless others are here to spread their success with a high fruit diet and how that is elevating their health and mitigating the symptoms of DisEASES. Tasha Lee another Type 1 Diabetic shares her story in the video below. If you are or know someone that is also diabetic PLEASE watch and share this. Learn the facts and truth about your body and it’s ability to transform itself on a high fruit and raw diet.

Have you ever heard that diabetics can’t eat fruit? How about that fruit has too much sugar? What would you say if I told you that animal protein and animal fats have been shown to cause larger and more extended blood sugar spikes than fruit? What if I also told you that many diabetics have found relief from unpredictable blood sugar levels by adopting a low fat, whole food vegan diet and lifestyle containing plenty of fruit? Is it possible that animal products are the main contributors to out of control blood sugar levels? It appears so!

In this video you will hear Tasha Lee share here story. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 11 years old. After spending most of her life trying a variety of diets and health plans, a low fat raw food lifestyle has given her back control of her life and her condition.

? Bananas ?

DID YOU KNOW:

banana_ripe4_n

? Bananas are one of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today.

? They are 76% water and are packed with vitamins such as vitamins C and B6 and minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese.

? This high water/nutrient ratio makes them a great electrolyte food perfect for busy moms, workout enthusiasts, and people on the go.

 ? Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.

 ? Bananas contain powerful anti-fungal and antibiotic compounds as well as protease inhibitors which can help stop viruses in their tracts.

? This makes them highly beneficial for chronic illnesses such as shingles, epstein barr, parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and lupus. Bananas are also particularly good for lowering blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological disorders, diarrhea, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, chron’s disease, stroke, and kidney, colon, and lung cancers.

 ? Bananas contain high levels of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) which along with insulin helps to promote nutrient absorption and assimilation. Bananas support the natural acidophilus bacteria in the bowel which helps promote a healthy and functional digestive tract as well as keep the immune system healthy and strong.

? Bananas can prevent ulcers by strengthening the surface cells of the stomach lining which helps to create a thicker barrier against digestive acid and pepsin-the two main causes of ulcers.

 ? Bananas are also an excellent food for athletes as they can help replenish energy and revitalize the body instantly.

 ? Bananas are rich in the amino acid tryptophan which can help to promote sleep and regulate the sleep-wake cycle.

WHAT IN THE HELL  DO YOU DO WITH THEM?

  • Bananas can be blended with a little water to make a sweet and creamy “milk” that is both dairy-free and hypo-allergenic.

  • Banana “milk” is a great alternative for children and infants who are allergic to dairy and soy proteins. Bananas can also be cut into pieces, frozen and placed into a blender or food processor for amazing dairy-free and fat-free ice creams and “milk”shakes.

EAT THEM RIPE!!!

?Bananas should be ripe when eaten which means the peel should be lightly speckled and the fruit has a sweet, creamy taste.

? Unripe bananas can cause constipation and other adverse reactions.

?Bananas are a fantastic healing and nourishing food that is a great addition to a healthy diet.

☑️ They can be readily found at your local grocery and health food store
