Celery Juice to Start the Day

I am reading a book called The Medical Medium by Anthony William.  One idea that is catching on with the raw food community is to start your day with plain celery juice.  Celery juice will be of benefit to anyone dealing with shingles, autoimmune, or mystery illness.  You can see a difference within a week.  Here is the link to more information about the benefits of celery juice on the Medical Medium blog.  You can also follow Medical Medium on Facebook.

Buy the book here:

Werener Kollath was a German bacteriologist, hygienist, and food scientist who was a pioneer in the whole foods movement.  Kollath was a member of the Nazi party so he lost his position as the dean of the faculty of medicine after the war but was able to keep his position with the commission and served in the Soviet occupation zone. His research after the end of World War II found that a diet that produces average health fails to produce the highest level of health.  In 1948 he published a second edition to a natural hygiene textbook and in 1950 he wrote an important book on the full value of nutrition and its importance for growth and cell replacement.  His books laid the foundation for the study of whole food nutrition.

In his studies he found that animals grown on processed, refined food that were lacking minerals and vitamins would grow and show no signs of disease, not even vitamin deficiencies. However, when these animals reached adulthood they showed signs of degeneration similar to humans in the Western world. Supplementation with vitamins did not help these conditions. The only thing that helped was an abundance of raw foods containing green leaves, cereals and vegetables.

Most of us are surely living in this state of average health. We usually don't even recognize that we are in a low state of health until serious degeneration begins to manifest. It has been proven by hygienists for many years that health can be improved by adding fresh raw food to the diet and by eliminating cooked, processed, high protein, and high fat foods.

Food prep for the day:
Green Smoothie for 2 (herbs from the garden, 2 bananas, 2 big strawberries, 1/4 pineapple, 1/4 papaya, 2 cups frozen wild blueberries, 2 scoops of chia seeds, water)

Green Salad (1/2 head green leaf lettuce, 1/4 chopped onion, 1 radish, 1 cucumber, 1 tomato, 1/2 avocado and  juice from 1/2 lemon)

I am still in healing crisis mode with coughing and ear ache.  I made it to Walmart and bought most of the groceries we will need for this week.  I may have to go back and get more celery for the celery juice.  Travis went to Food Wise for bananas and apples.  I forgot to get lettuce...imagine that...and had to go back to Food Wise for lettuce.
This week's grocery haul. ..$108.71

Darn! Forgot the lettuce and had to go out in the rain to go back to the store. Add $5.50 to the grocery tally.

Lunch: Green smoothie, orange, 1/2 avocado; peach nice cream that was leftover from the raw foods potluck

Dinner: Green salad; dehydrated crackers that were left from raw foods potluck, frozen cherries, pistachios

Our dog, Lucy, has been a finicky eater since she was a little puppy, The only thing she really loves to eat is chicken, but chicken wreaks havoc on her digestion.  Then we have all kinds of problems.  I watched Jonny Juicer's video about what his dog eats.  I talked to Lucy about becoming a vegan and eating like Noah, but so far she is ignoring me.  This recipe is good.  I ate a little of it myself, so why won't Lucy eat it. Maybe she will when she gets hungry enough.

Dog Food Recipe:
1 cup green lentils
1 cup quinoa or rice
1 cup diced sweet potatoes
 - Cook about 20 minutes in water until done

Top with:  diced red peppers, grated carrots, blueberries, garbanzo beans.
Sprinke with ground flax.  I didn't have any spiruline or wheat grass powder so I substituted kelp.
Add a little hemp oil ( I used flax oil).

There you go.  It has not been touched.
Lucy's new dog food

To health and happiness.
