Scripture References for My Diet


Genesis. 1: 29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every HERB bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the FRUIT of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

 The word "MEAT" in the scriptures means "FOOD".

 D&C 88:

 10 "I say unto you, all wholesome HERBS God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man."

 The word "HERB" in the scriptures means "PLANT".

 The definition of "CONSTITUTION": The composition or structure of something; The physical makeup of a person.

 The definition of "NATURE": The processes and functions of the body.

 11 "Every HERB in the season thereof, and every FRUIT in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving."

 The definition of "PRUDENCE": The ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason. 

16 "the FRUIT of the vine; that which yieldeth FRUIT, whether in the ground or above the ground." 

There are scriptures that refer to the eating of flesh. But I like to follow this one sentence in The Word of Wisdom for the clearly stated reason: D&C 89:13 "..it is pleasing unto me that they should NOT BE USED."

 There are also scriptures which mention the eating of grains. Of course ancient grains where different than today's grains. They were ground raw,unleavened, & cooked by the heat of the sun. The grains of today make me feel bad & make me gain weight.

 The milk of animals was used, but I believe only on occasion, fresh, raw & by healthy, free animals. Science today shows why it's best to avoid & it makes me ill, have acne, urinary tract infections, and get fat & puffy. Plus my common sense screams to me that it is for the animals babies & not for me.

 So what to eat? LOTS & LOTS of yummy food made by God! :)

 EAT IN ABUNDANCE Whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic, local (when possible), in season :

 FRUITS (anything with a seed)
TENDER YOUNG GREENS
HERBS
VEGETABLES
ROOTS
NUTS &SEEDS, AVOCADO, COCONUT FLESH, OLIVES (or FATS); eat very limited or within 10% of total calories


 AVOID OR DO NOT EAT:

ANIMAL CARCASS "meat" 
ANIMAL EXCRETIONS "milk products & eggs"
BIRD FOOD "grains"
BEANS & LEGUMES
OILS
SALTS
YEAST
VINEGARS
FERMENTED, DRIED, COOKED, or CANNED foods.
DEHYDRATED or LIGHTLY STEAMED foods are ok when nothing else is available or in transition when craving other cooked foods.

Lately if I'm having cravings or don't have anything else I like to steam organic potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, & broccoli with some fresh herbs like dill & parsley or dried herbs like paprika, or an organic salt free mix from Costco I like.


Eat for HEALTH! Eat for BEAUTY! Eat for ENERGY! Eat for PLEASURE! Eat for LIFE!

I think I really want this now..


Dear Whoever Is Reading This,

Here I lay. *cough attack* Sick in bed. *cough attack* Day 9. 
There's nothing like pain & suffering to bring you to the depths of humility. No greater teacher.. What happened? Well....before I get into that, I want to give myself credit: 

I have come a looooooong way! I have made HUGE changes and have improved in SO many ways! Dietary changes are difficult to make when you have been accustomed to certain things, traditions & habits your entire life! So to be at the point I am now is immense! Problem is...the cleaner your body gets...the less is tolerates little "indiscretions"....So...yup! That brings me back to why I'm lying on my back...

My son graduated from High School (party/go out to eat), from Seminary (party/go out to eat), became an  Elder (party/go out to eat), got a mission call (party/go out to eat) etc. etc. etc. Friends have Birthdays and you go out to eat. Friends ask you to go out to eat. Date night. You go out to eat. Boredom. Habit. Now you're addicted. You go out to eat. Then WHAMMO!!!!! Here I lie...

I DON'T LIKE THIS! NOT ONE BIT! I NEVER WANT TO BE SICK AGAIN!



*sigh* 

How sick have I been? Here's the order of symptoms: 
Fatigue
Achy
Fever
Headache from hell
Skin pain from hell
For 5 days then...
Major cough
Day 6 so far..
9 days lying here...

Of course since day 1 I've been 100% raw and drinking tons of water & getting fresh air and sunshine (ok not enough cuz I don't want to annoy my neighbors with my coughing). 

I can tell by my tongue and BM's how we'll I'm detoxing. It never fails that after about day 5 of 100% raw the "stuff" that comes out of you is...well...unique. :) Boy do notice the difference in your gut! Clean, unclogged & empty! Can you say, "flat stomach"? Yeah it's pretty awesome and reminds me how wonderful it is to be 100% raw. There's just nothing like it. 



So...once again....I'm convinced, even more so, of how important it is to eat 100% so that you never get sick like this. How its just NOT WORTH the supposed "fun" of going out to eat or "partying" on foods that are not good for the body. 



If I can just remember this when I'm feeling great, hungry & tempted to "join the "fun"". If I can just remember how awful it is to be sick. If I can just remember how great I feel, look, think when I choose fruits & veggies over Thai, Indian or Japanese food then I think I can do this. No...I know I can.

Day 3 of a 14 Day Juice Feast

Hi Health Lovers! *sigh* How is my diet going??? Hmm... Well, I've had spurts of 100% raw (811)..but mostly I've been raw for breakfast & lunch and then eating the lfv cooked meals I make for my family. How's that been working for me?? Well...it makes social life easier...Ive enjoyed going out to eat and eating veggie sushi (sans soy sauce), Thai spring rolls, steamed veggies & rice, & miso udon noodle soup..Asian restaurants are best for low/no fat vegan options. BUT....I've gotten FAT eating this way! 158.6 lbs to be exact! And the more cooked food I eat the more I want. I must give myself credit though...I've been progressing for 4 years 3 months! I've come from being a sick bulimic to where I am today! Mostly raw low fat vegan! That is HUGE! Ive healed my body! But..I am still a food "user"..just like any other addicts. As of late I use bread as my "fix" when things aren't going well,I'm depressed or forlorn. Last week I was depressed about something and drove straight to a wonderful bakery here and bought some artisan bread and went home and made TWO HUGE veggie sandwiches and binged. Yup. I know, I know, some of you might be thinking, "You binged on a bread, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado, mustard sandwich and you feel bad about it????" well..yes! I am a BREAD ADDICT and it makes me F A T!! Eating bread and other cooked stuff makes me feel bad. Literally. My face is puffy, my body is puffy, my hands and body gets stiff, I stink, my digestion is sluggish, I am sluggish, I am grumpy because of all of that...add it all together and it = no likey, not working for me. *sigh* *feeling apprehensive about confessing these things* Ok so, it's ok. I'm learning. Progressing. Learning and progressing. Isn't that what life is about? Perfection is not attained in this life..and that's what makes it perfect. I'm improving and will continue to do so until I become what I believe. My New Years Resolution was to eat 811 except for one meal a week...fail. BUT, what has reinpired me is my amazing friend DOT!! She has gone on a $12,000 adventure!! She is staying at Dr. Graham's fasting retreat (fasting for 30 days!)in Costa Rica and then doing all of his courses!! For two months!!! The BEST part of this is that she is blogging about it!!! Check her out and get inspired too at www.amadapuravida.blogspot.com I started a 14 day fast and am on day 3! I want to tell you how different my soul feels when I feed it properly. Balanced, peaceful, happy, hopeful, present, alive...right. I feel right. Like myself. My true joyous self...not the doped up, numb, unhappy one..that's the one who uses food and ends up being buried alive.. So, here's to more progressing! CHECK OUT DOTS BLOG!! Start from the beginning! Www.amadapuravida.blogspot.com
