Nutrition is a controversial subject as there are many different philosophies and many contradictory ideas and approaches. We need food to live and sustain the body, and every day choices are made that either harm or help us. Even if we eat foods that we think are ‘neutral’ in their effect – it’s a missed opportunity to consume more nutrients to boost energy levels. It’s worth the time to research and explore different options, and most of all to listen to your body and the signals it gives you around what enhances your energy versus what drains you and makes you feel sick or heavy. Awareness breeds greater awareness when you care.
I have a very simple diet plan that I follow which has been refined over many years, since I began to care about optimal health specifically for the purpose of raising vibrational frequency. It has involved trial-and-error adjustments, and taking the time to explore available research.
The physical body is an aspect of our consciousness, and tending its nutritional needs directly equates to more energy physically, and thus enhanced energy-consciousness. Great gains can be made in this area very quickly if you are willing to ‘eat for energy expansion’ – and eliminate foods that create toxicity which serve to drain energy, lower vibrational frequency, and lead to health issues and disease.
Ideally, if you are ‘going all the way’ getting the majority of your calories from whole natural foods – and consuming them in their natural form – offers the greatest energy possible.
These foods have a high concentration of nutrients that the body needs, ie., vitamins and minerals that support many of our biological and chemical needs for optimal functioning. At the same time, preparing these foods in a simple way, without chemical additives from condiments and sauces means that there is no toxicity taking a piggy-back on your meals.
Each person has to decide for himself, and make adjustments by listening to what feels right. Processed and packaged food are a definite no-no, and the same with meat and dairy, genetically modified foods (corn, soy), and foods containing gluten. Farming practices are not what they used to be. I don’t believe in slaughtering animals for our food, though from a nutritional point of view animal products have been shown to create toxicity in the body, and disease.
FYI: I get a lot of information from well-known researchers T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, with 40 years of research on the ill-effects of animal products on the body, and who supports a whole-foods diet; and Dr. Micheal Greger, author of How Not to Die, who is a research analyst that promotes a whole-foods diet, and sites extensive research on the ill-effects of animal products on the body. His non-profit NutritionFacts.org is the first science-based, non-commercial website to provide free daily videos and articles on the latest discoveries in nutrition.
Every day I eat fresh green vegetables (lightly steamed to retain the nutrients) including kale, broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, and a variety of lettuce leaves. I also make fresh carrot juice with beet and celery, and fresh pineapple juice or orange juice usually, and most always a banana. Eating fruit with thick removable skin minimizes toxins from pesticides.
I refer to my diet as primarily low-fat plant-based.
Healthy fats are also important. I get mine most of mine from avocado, which I add to many of my meals (listed below). I never cook with oil, and consume limited olive oil only in a balsamic salad dressing I make, which is sprinkled on a daily green mixed salad or on potatoes. I eat a lot of potato-only meals (steamed or baked) as it’s one of my favorite foods, and often just add sea salt.
The rest of the diet includes: rice – all kinds – white, brown, wild; beans – all kinds – including black, pinto, kidney, and mung beans, and sometimes chick peas, as well as lentils (yellow and green). I rotate everything as I feel like it. I don’t have condiments or sauces anymore as they often contain harmful additives, and hot sauce is an irritant, as raw garlic and onions are. Sea salt, avocado, chopped tomatoes and cilantro flavor most of my meals.
My last and final round of food elimination was earlier this year as I decided to go ‘all the way’ in support of raising my frequency.
It included: gluten-free pasta and bread that I would eat sometimes, sweet chili sauce, hot sauce, organic corn chips, granola cereal, rice chips, and corn tortillas. Corn and soy are genetically-modified and hard to digest, as is gluten – important to avoid. These foods were also ‘empty’ calories that I let go of, in favor of eating only whole natural foods. I feel a positive difference since doing this.
I have a vegan protein smoothie several times a week.
1 Banana (or however much you want)
A Handful of Berries (blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries… mine are usually frozen)
1 heaping tablespoon of ground flax (a good blender will grind them naturally)
1 scoop of vegan protein powder (pea, brown rice or hemp)
Rice milk (or half water for less calories. Other nut milks are good too – almond, quinoa, coconut etc.)
Combine all ingredients together in a blender, adjusting the amounts as desired, except the flax seed. Freezing the fruit makes the drink cool, which may be your preference. This is a good meal for any time of day.
Supplements I personally believe in fulfilling my nutrient requirements through whole foods where possible, and not supplements, and of course different people have different dietary constraints and requirements. A regular blood test is helpful for getting the facts to help you choose the right foods and supplements, if needed. I have a B12 injection every two months, and I also have a few drops of iodine twice a week. I spend time in the sun a few times a week for vitamin D absorption, and believe it’s good to supplement with Vitamin D if you aren’t able to get direct sun exposure (5000 IUs a day or more).
- Juicing Machine for consuming fresh vegetable and fruit juices.
- Water Distiller for clean and pure drinking water and cooking water.
- Large Rice Cooker (with steamer tray) for cooking beans, rice, lentils and keeping them warm for the day, and for steaming vegetables.
- Blender for protein smoothie drinks.
Harmful foods, known to cause toxicity
- Animal products
- Genetically-modified foods including corn and soy. Foods with gluten are also harmful.
- Processed/packaged foods with harmful chemical additives and preservatives.
Harmful substances that negatively affect consciousness are:
- Caffeine negatively affects the brain and nervous system.
- Smoking cigarettes and cannabis create toxicity in the brain and make the blood acidic, effecting immune-system response.
- Alcohol negatively affects the brain and liver.
All drugs, including mind-altering substances and alcohol, harm the brain and open one’s consciousness to the influence of dark energies. Fasting and a clean diet can help cleanse any of these addictions from your system… and prayer. There is lots of positive help from the invisible realms, though you have to sincerely ask for it to receive it.
