The Benefits from Eating Hemp Seeds

I’ve heard of hemp seeds for years. Until I shifted my diet, I was never quite sure what the benefits were or whether hemp seeds were even safe for consumption. If you’ve wondered about hemp seeds as well, read on!

The Benefits from Eating Hemp Seeds

What are Hemp Seeds?

For a long time, hemp seeds were ignored for their nutritional benefits because of hemp’s botanical relationship to medicinal varieties of cannabis. It is a variety of the cannabis plant. However, hemp seeds don’t cause any psychotropic reactions, nor will they cause you to get high. Instead, they provide significant health benefits.

Hemp is one of the most widely utilized and diverse industrial crops in the world. Its fibers are considered the longest and most durable of all natural fibers, and it can be grown without deadly herbicides and pesticides.

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which support cardiovascular health. They are high in GLA, an essential omega-6 fatty acid that’s been proven to naturally balance hormones. And hemp seeds are considered the perfect protein, containing all 20 amino acids, and also each of the nine essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce.

The Benefits from Eating Hemp Seeds

Benefits of Hemp Seeds

Eating hemp seeds brings these benefits:

• the GLA aids people suffering from ADHD, breast pain, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, obesity, premenstrual symptoms, rheumatoid arthritis and skin allergies.

• relieves joint pain and arthritis symptoms

• natural appetite suppressant that creates a feeling of being full longer and reduces sugar cravings

• provides enough bulk to keep the gastrointestinal system regular and feeds the probiotics in the gut, helping to support a healthy immune system

• improves dry, red, flaky skin, easing eczema and psoriasis

• lowers inflammation and combats cancer

• lowers blood pressure, reduces LDL cholesterol, raises HDL cholesterol and improve triglycerides

• improves heart health

How to Use Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds, also known as hemp hearts, are readily available in grocery stores, health food stores, and online. The seeds have a slightly nutty flavor.

Add one to four spoonfuls of hemp seeds to smoothies or sprinkle over smoothie bowls, salads, gluten free pasta bowls or any other plant based meal. I add hemp seeds to my morning smoothies. And I like to sprinkle them over salads and cooked greens or use them in place of grated cheese. Yesterday I topped raw lettuce tacos with hemp seeds. They were delicious.

I no longer question whether to include hemp seeds in my diet. My only question is…what else can I add them to?

The Powerful Benefits of Spinach

My first awareness of this dark green leafy vegetable came as a result of cartoons about that feisty sailor, Popeye. When he emptied a can of spinach into his mouth he instantly transformed into a strongman with muscular biceps.

Perhaps because I was inspired, or perhaps because my mother liked spinach, I grew to like it too, cooked and served with vinegar. I was an adult before I ever tried eating raw spinach. What a difference between fresh, crisp spinach and the stringy stuff that came out of a can. My appreciation for this vegetable increased.

The Powerful Benefits of Spinach

What is Spinach?

Spinach is a leafy vegetable that is believed to have originated in Persia, and is now commonly grown in China and the US. It belongs to the amaranth family and is related to beets and quinoa. In my area of the Midwest, it is considered an early spring crop, easily grown in home gardens.

High in fiber, which aids digestion, spinach is also a rich source of vitamins A, B6, B9, C, E and K. It’s a great source of iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium, nitrates, lutein and antioxidants.

The Powerful Benefits of Spinach

Health Benefits of Spinach

Including more spinach in the diet brings these health benefits:

• Creates an alkaline environment in the body and nourishes the nervous system.

• Removes jelly like viral wastes from the liver that causes mystery weight gain and heart flutters.

• Rejuvenates the skin and helps to heal eczema and psoriasis.

• Improves eyesight and prevents age related macular degeneration.

• Prevents osteoporosis, atherosclerosis and strokes.

• Maintains normal blood pressure.

• Boosts metabolism

• Reduces oxidative stress which slows aging and helps to prevent diabetes and cancer.

• And it does, indeed, strengthen muscles.

The Powerful Benefits of Spinach

How to Enjoy Spinach

Spinach is most beneficial when eaten raw. Combine with other veggies and fruits in salads, add to juices and smoothies, or create spinach pesto.

As one who embraces a plant based lifestyle and follows Medical Medium protocols, an extremely tasty and beneficial way to enjoy this powerful veggie is in raw spinach soup. Combined with other fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, celery, cilantro and garlic, and the surprise ingredient, oranges, this soup can be customized by topping with freshly chopped herbs. Spinach soup is a mainstay of Anthony’s 28 Day Healing Cleanse, and for good reason. It provides an incredible boost to the overall health of the body.

Which is why I featured spinach today for Food Friday. I’m about to begin a 7 Day Cleanse, eating only raw foods for the next week. I may very well continue on for another week, or three or four. Spinach will play a vital role in my cleanse.

I won’t develop huge biceps like Popeye, but like him, consuming spinach daily I will be strong, and full of health and vitality.

Artichokes

I’ve eaten artichoke hearts for years, primarily as an ingredient in a big mixed salad. I have never actually purchased this peculiar looking vegetable before today, or prepared it at home. There’s a first for everything!

Artichokes

What are Artichokes?

The artichoke is a variety of the thistle plant, cultivated as food. The edible portion of the plant consists of the flower bud before the flowers come into bloom. The budding artichoke flower-head is a cluster of small blooms with many bracts on an edible base. Once the buds bloom, the structure changes to a coarse, barely edible form.

This vegetable grows 4.5 feet to 6.5 feet tall, with arching, deeply lobed, silvery green leaves. The bud is 3 to 6 inches in diameter with numerous triangular scales. The edible portions of the buds consist primarily of the fleshy lower portions of the bracts and the base, known as the “heart”. The mass of immature florets in the center of the bud is called the “choke” or beard. These are inedible in older, larger plants.

Artichokes

Health Benefits of Artichokes

In Life Changing Foods, author Anthony William ranks artichokes in the top ten among superfoods. They are filled with phytochemicals such as lutein and isothiocyanates, vitamins A, E and K, amino acids and enzymes. They enhance B12 and bring balance to the gut.

Artichokes also contain minerals such as silica, which is crucial for the body to survive, and magnesium which when combined with other minerals found in this vegetable, helps to calm all the body’s systems. The mineral denseness in the artichoke nourishes the dense organs of the body, including the liver, spleen, pancreas, brain, adrenals and thyroid.

This is an ideal food for those with diabetes, hypoglycemia and blood sugar imbalances, as well as people suffering with kidney stones, gallstones, calcifications and scar tissue within the body. Artichokes also protect from the radiation of X-rays, cancer treatments and dental work.

Bring more artichokes into the diet for these additional symptoms and conditions: shingles, insomnia, liver disease, Lyme disease, pancreatic cancer, ulcers, systemic lupus, blood cell cancers, infertility, rib pain, food allergies, bone loss, inflamed colon, nerve pain and enlarged spleen.

Artichokes

How to Prepare Artichokes

The best, most nutritious way to enjoy artichokes is to steam them. Follow these easy steps:

• Cut off the stem of the artichoke so that it rests flat. Trim off the top 1/4 of the artichoke. Using scissors, cut the tips from each remaining leaf.

• Fill a large pot with 3 inches of water. Place 1 – 4 artichokes in a steamer basket and place inside the pot. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over artichokes.

• Bring water to a boil and steam covered for 30 – 45 minutes, until leaves are tender and easily pull loose from the bud. Eat by nibbling the fleshy part at the base of each leaf.

I used my pressure pot to steam one artichoke, after preparing it. It took 14 minutes to cook through. Using vegan, egg free mayo, I created a lemon sauce with the other half of the lemon.

My first experience steaming and eating a fresh artichoke was a success! The leaf bases were tender and tasty…and I ate the whole thing. Which is to say, I nibbled away the bases of the leaves and enjoyed the heart. There was a pile of leftover leaf parts when I finished, making artichokes a great beginning to a plant based meal.

Mangoes

After mangling the first fresh mango that I attempted to cut up, I primarily purchased frozen mixed fruit that included mango chunks. My morning fruit smoothies are easy to make using unsweetened frozen fruit. However, I’ve learned how to properly cut up this small, powerful fruit. Fresh mango, eaten alone or mixed with other fruits, can’t be beat.

Mangoes

What are Mangoes?

The mango is a tropical fruit with an outer fleshy part surrounding a seed, or pit. Mangoes, native to South Asia, are widely distributed throughout the world now, earning it the name “king of fruits”. In fact, mangoes are considered the most consumed fruit in the world.

There are many different kinds of mangoes. They range in color, shape, flavor, and seed size. While the skin color of mangoes can vary from green to red, yellow, or orange, the inner flesh of the mango is mostly a golden yellow, and it is notoriously difficult to separate from the pit. The fruit has a sweet and creamy taste.

Mangoes

Health Benefits of Mangoes

In Life Changing Foods Anthony William shares that the mango is a miraculous sleep aid. When consumed before bed, the phytochemicals in mangoes, combined with the fruit’s amino acids, fructose and glucose, travel to the brain and quickly restore depleted neurotransmitters. This allows for true rest during the night.

Mangoes are also beneficial for stress relief, viral protection and calming the central nervous system. Rich in beta-carotene, mangoes strengthen and support the skin and help to prevent skin cancers. They reverse hypoglycemia, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes. Plus the fruit’s pulp soothes the stomach and intestinal tract.

Bringing more mangoes into the diet helps with these disorders: Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, epilepsy, Grave’s disease, ADHD, ulcers, stomach cancer, Hashimoto’s, glaucoma, Crohn’s disease, PTSD, urinary tract infections, depression, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, infertility, muscle cramps and pain, constipation, sluggish liver, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

How to Cut Up a Mango

Follow these easy steps, to cut up a mango:

1) Stand the mango up and slice from top to bottom, avoiding the pit. Turn fruit and slice off the other side. You should have two halves and a central section containing the seed.

2) Score the mango halves, cutting through the flesh without cutting through the outer skin.

3) Remove the cubes of mango by scraping the cut sections with a spoon or by sliding a knife between the flesh and skin. I cut the strips into long sections and fillet off the flesh (see photo above).Cut the narrow strips from either side of the pit, slice through the flesh, and fillet off.

Use mangoes in smoothies, salsas and salads, eat alone or combined with other fruits. Frozen mango chunks, combined with frozen bananas, makes a great soft serve type dessert that is naturally sweet and oh so delicious.

Parsley

This green leafy herb is recognized by most people as the garnish on their plate in a restaurant. Until recently, I would never have considered eating the garnish. What a deeply ingrained perception, to view parsley as decoration rather than the powerful healing food that it is. I’m glad my perceptions have changed!

Parsley

What is parsley?

Parsley is a species of flowering plants native to the central Mediterranean region that includes southern Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Malta, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. It is naturalized in Europe, and grown across the US. The plant is widely cultivated as an herb, spice and vegetable.

Parsley is often used in European, Middle Eastern and American cooking. The curly variety is most frequently placed on a plate of food as garnish. Beyond its culinary and decorative uses, this aromatic herb also has many health benefits.

Parsley

Benefits of parsley

Parsley is a nutrient dense food, full of vitamins such as B12, B9 (folic acid), A, C and K, and minerals including magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, chromium, selenium, iodine and calcium. The plant thrives well and has an adaptogenic nature, making it an excellent food when the body is weary and depleted.

When the body becomes too acidic, disease is more likely to occur. Parsley is one of the best alkalizing foods, for all systems of the body. It drives out acidity due to the special mineral salts that bind onto unproductive acids. This alkalizing ability makes parsley effective in preventing cancer, which thrives in an acidic body.

The herb fights pathogens, keeps bacteria, parasites and fungus away, and pulls herbicides and pesticides from the body. Parsley helps any mouth related disorder such as gum disease, tooth decay and dry mouth.

Bring more parsley into your life for these symptoms and conditions: cancer, anxiety, depression, adrenal fatigue, Epstein Barr virus, migraines, thyroid disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, COPD, endocrine system disorders, hepatitis C, nausea, dizziness, abdominal pain, weight gain, neurological disorders and pre-fatty liver. (Info from Life Changing Foods by Anthony William)

How to use parsley

For maximum benefits, choose flat leaf parsley over curly leaf, although it still has benefits if that’s all that is available. Juice it with celery and other veggies, add it to salads and sprinkle over foods. Fresh parsley can be brewed as a tea also.

Move this crucial herb from the sidelines, of your plate and your perceptions, and embrace the health and vitality it offers. I’ll be adding this plant to my herb garden next spring so I can enjoy it and reap the benefits more often.

Powerful Pomegranates

These colorful fruits are very popular and known primarily for being high in antioxidants. However the pomegranate has amazing health benefits making it a food to indulge in often. Anthony William writes that each juicy ruby colored seed inside powerful pomegranates contains a universe of healing. Breaking open those seeds, called arils, releases the full potential of those tiny universes to come to our aid.

Powerful Pomegranates

When we eat fresh pomegranate seeds a chemical reaction occurs whenever the fruit’s acids, which are full of phytochemicals, come into contact with unhealthy hardenings of bile, protein buildup and toxic forms of calcium. They immediately begin to break down, making pomegranates helpful for dissolving gallstones, kidney stones, nodules, calcifications and small cysts.

This fruit strengthens red and white blood cell counts. It restores glucose reserves in the liver, so that the organ can release glucose into the bloodstream as needed. This helps to protect the adrenal glands. If the liver doesn’t have an adequate supply of glucose then the adrenals are forced to pump hormones such as cortisol into the blood to keep the body going. This can lead to overactive adrenal glands and eventual burnout. Pomegranate’s high quality glucose is excellent for the brain as well, supporting the abilities to focus and concentrate.

Powerful Pomegranates

In addition pomegranates contain trace minerals such as iron, manganese, potassium and chromium that are very bioavailable and easily assimilable, and high levels of vitamins C and K.

Eating pomegranates regularly unclogs pores and hair follicles, encouraging hair growth and benefitting the skin and scalp, lowers blood pressure and eases the symptoms of arthritis.

Pomegranates curb excessive hunger and the tendency to overeat if the seeds are consumed before a meal. They also regulate hormones by flushing out unproductive estrogens that contribute to cancer. Pomegranates detoxify DDT and other pesticides, eliminate lactic acid build up in the muscles and prevents the overproduction of earwax.

Bringing more pomegranates into the diet also helps with these conditions and symptoms: Alzheimer’s, dementia, brain fog, memory loss, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, Epstein Barr, Lyme’s disease, Raynaud’s syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, muscle cramps, myelin nerve damage, eye floaters, body pain, head pain, inflammation, itchy skin and hives.

Powerful Pomegranates

So the thing about pomegranates is being able to easily get to those amazing seeds. My first experience with deseeding a pomegranate turned into a huge mess, with seeds everywhere, including on the floor. Very few of those sweet-tart bubbles of goodness ended up in my bowl.

I love pomegranate seeds though, and I persevered. One method that works well is to score the skin around the middle of the fruit and then carefully pry the pomegranate apart into two halves. Gently…oh so gently…flex each half to loosen the seeds. Using any force snaps the fruit into sections and scatters the seeds. Turn the pomegranate half cut side down over a bowl and whack the other side with a wooden spoon. The seeds will fall into the bowl.

I have not tried the bowl of water trick yet, for removing seeds. See this method demonstrated in the video below.

Enjoy pomegranate seeds fresh from the fruit, run through the juicer with other fruits, or sprinkle on salads, hummus, stir fry, or cooked veggies.

Don’t forego enjoying powerful pomegranates because they can be messy to open and deseed. They are well worth the effort. Pomegranates teach us to prepare for life’s messes and embrace them so that we can receive the most from what comes our way.

Miraculous Raw Honey

There are so many reasons to appreciate this golden wild food. Anthony William, author of Life Changing Foods, calls raw, unprocessed honey “nothing less than a miracle from God and the earth”.

Miraculous Raw Honey

Let’s put to rest the main concern about people have about consuming honey: it’s not sugar. Don’t confuse the natural sweetness of this nectar with processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup. The fructose and glucose in honey is good for us. It is full of thousands of phytochemical compounds, including pathogen killers and protectors against radiation damage and cancer. In fact, raw honey can shut down the cancerous growth process in tumors.

Honey is highly absorbable and its B12 coenzymes make it a powerful brain food. Plus raw honey repairs DNA and it is extremely high in minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum and manganese. Its anti inflammatory properties inhibit pathogens from procreating and releasing toxins that further elevate inflammation.

Our immune systems are constantly bombarded by the microorganisms that we encounter. Raw honey, one of the most adaptogenic foods in existence, supports the immune system so it can combat those microorganisms. When we are dealing with a weakened immune system and infectious diseases such as colds, flus and stomach bugs, or food poisoning, raw honey helps strengthen the body’s defense systems.

We can bring more raw honey into our lives to help with these conditions: sinus and ear infections, diabetes, hypoglycemia, allergies, staph infections, MRSA, SIBO, infertility, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, colds, cancers, Alzheimer’s, dementia, memory issues, autoimmune disorders, respiratory infections, bronchitis, joint pain, headaches, stomachaches and dry skin. (Info from Life Changing Foods)

Miraculous Raw Honey

This is how I have brought more honey into my life. I purchase raw organic honey locally. It’s important to purchase honey from local bee keepers because the bees collect pollen from area flowers and plants, including the ones we can have allergic reactions to.

During allergy season, spring and late fall for me, I take a spoonful of raw honey daily, along with an Ester C vitamin and a spoonful of sugar free elderberry syrup, to prevent allergic reactions. I have not had allergy symptoms in two years, and I formerly suffered from severe seasonal allergies.

I add raw honey to a bowl of berries for a special treat and use it in place of sugar in recipes such as curries and sauces. Raw honey is great in turmeric milk, made with unsweetened almond coconut milk, and can be added to herbal teas or lemon water for an extra boost to the immune system. Drizzle it over frozen banana ice cream or chopped apples.

And I add 1/4 teaspoon of raw honey to the face serum that I make, because it is wonderfully restorative to the skin. It also is beneficial for healing small wounds and abrasions and helps to heal scars.

I used to laugh at Winnie the Pooh and his obsession with eating honey. Now I realize that silly old bear was on to something amazing.

Reasons to Eat More Plums

This sweet and juicy fruit is plentiful this time of year. Perhaps because of its colors, ranging from yellow to red to deep purple, seeing piles of plums at the market reminds me that fall is approaching. Beyond being beautiful to look at, this fruit is packed with nutrients. Discover the healthy reasons to eat more plums.

Reasons to Eat More Plums

Powerhouse Plums

Plums are an excellent source of vitamins A, B6, C and K. They are rich in copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, phosphorus and potassium. The magnesium in plums works as a natural tranquilizer, soothing nerves and helping to reinstate natural REM sleep. They are also high in antioxidants that protect the body from cell damaging free radicals.

The fruit not only contains iron, they help the body to absorb iron, a requirement for the production of blood cells. Eating plums improves the circulation of blood.

Reasons to Eat More Plums

Reasons to Eat More Plums

The benefits from eating more plums include improved vision, radiant skin, regulated digestive tract, protection from age related neurodegenerative disorders, healthy brain function, reduced inflammation, resistance against colds and infections, and improved metabolism.

The fruit is beneficial for a healthy pregnancy, boosts immune, heart and bone health, helpful for gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome and constipation, and they are excellent for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as COPD, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, Raynaud’s, cardiopathy, lupus, vertigo and colitis. (Info from Anthony William. Check out his website medicalmedium.com)

Eat plums when the fruit is soft and very ripe for the best flavor. They can be enjoyed raw or added to salads, smoothies and juices. Just make sure to indulge in them often, for optimal health benefits.

Health Benefits of Coconut

I’ve been aware of the benefits of coconut for some time, primarily through the use of coconut oil. I use coconut oil as a base for skin and hair care products that I make myself. In fact, I just made a batch of my skin serum today, that I’ve been using for years on my face, neck, chest and hands. Find my recipe HERE.

I’ve only recently discovered coconut water…yum…and the extraordinary healing powers found within this wild food.

Health Benefits of Coconut

In his book Life Changing Foods, Anthony William shares that the coconut enhances the power of everything it touches. When combined with any healing food, coconut supercharges it. For example, if coconut water is added to a smoothie that contains parsley, it increases parsley’s ability to remove unproductive acids from the body by 50% and dramatically improves the effects of parsley’s trace minerals.

When coconut meat is added to a salad, it enhances everything else in the salad…cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach…and their healing properties. Coconut drives a food to fulfill its highest purpose as it nourishes the body.

Health Benefits of Coconut

Coconut water provides important glucose and crucial mineral salts, including potassium and sodium, to the bloodstream. This is a fundamental component of neurotransmitter production. Without these chemicals we don’t sleep well and can experience insomnia, neurological sleep apnea and other sleep disturbances. To avoid these issues, drink coconut water.

Coconut water’s trace minerals and electrolytes nourish reproductive tissue. It also helps people with hypoglycemia, diabetes and blood disorders. Coconut water is crucial for those with over or under active adrenals as well as brain and neurological disorders. It benefits people with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other forms of dementia. And it prevents the onset of seizures and supports eye conditions.

Consume coconut water that is clear or very slightly tinged with pink, and avoid any that contain citric acid, natural flavors, or any kind of sweeteners.

Health Benefits of Coconut

Coconut meat and the oil derived from it is antipathogenic, antibacterial, antiviral and full of antioxidant properties. As coconut moves into the intestinal tract it kills off pathogens. Plus it helps to break loose fats and push them out of the body.

I occasionally use unsweetened shredded coconut in salads or to make a healthy sugar free treat. I keep cans of unsweetened coconut milk on hand, for recipes such as madras curried lentils and sauces. Coconut oil is great to cook with, however my favorite use for the oil is to create chemical free products. My strong intention is to increase the amount of coconut water that I drink and continue reaping the benefits that this power food offers.

Apricots

These tiny fruits that resemble miniature peaches are BIG on flavor and health benefits. They are an amazing fruit for rejuvenating the body due to being high in amino acids such as cysteine and glutamine, and minerals such as selenium and magnesium. This super food is loaded with more than 40 trace minerals and phytochemical compounds that bind to toxins such DDT buried deeply within the body, lowering the risk of many cancers.

Apricots

Apricots are a B12 enhancing food meaning they eliminate unhelpful elements in the digestive tract that get in the way of healthy B12 production. The skin of the apricot destroys mold, yeast, unneeded candida and other harmful fungus in the body, while the skin’s enzymes and coenzymes protect DNA.

Apricots reduce the gut’s production of ammonia, a destructive gas that can leach through the intestinal wall and cause problems throughout the body, from brain fog to dental issues. And apricots are an energy stabilizer that boost the growth of red blood cells, strengthening the heart and nourishing the brain. When the body’s energy reserves are low, apricots restore and replenish.

When fresh apricots are unavailable, dried apricots are a great alternative. Just make sure they are sulfur free. Dried apricots retain all their health benefits when dehydrated. The potassium level actually increases when this fruit is dried. (All info from Life Changing Foods by Anthony William.)

Apricots Dried sulfur free apricots are a golden brown color, instead of the bright orange of dried apricots that contain sulfur.

Apricots

I like using dried sulfur free apricots to make Apricot Bars, an easy and nutritious snack that is naturally sweet and chewy with the crunch of almonds. They only have four ingredients. You can find the recipe HERE

Apricots have powerful healing properties, and offer emotional support as well. They open us up, and help to calm nervousness while regulating when we need to be guarded and when we need to drop our defenses. Apricots soothe any type frustrating situation. These amazing little fruits deliver huge results in a compact package!
