millie says AGE gracefully not gruesomely

AGE gracefully not gruesomely. who knows the definitive answer why marlon brando plunged from utmost physical beauty quickly over to the other side… using he, who was emotionally tormented (stress’ed), laden with diabetes (obese, sugared and pickled), had congestive heart failure (obese, oxidatively damaged) and cancer (mutated cell’ed) as a shockingly poignant example….one can envision AGE, despite its chemical complexities.

advanced glycation entities (AGE) are the result of a chemical process in the body that happens when a poor lifestyle (high fat, sugar, alcohol, smoking meets low fruits, veggies, antioxidants, fibre, exercise) greets middle age. what you get when you combine overdoses of sugar and with free-radicals in the long run. beauty one decade, beast the next. these lead to wrinkles, large pores and nevi in the nose, blindness from cataracts, clogs in the arteries leading to strokes and heart attacks and possibly cancer, of which marlon brando had…them all.

millie says make curds and whey

warning: EXTREME health food recommendation:

make curds and whey. miss muffet ate hers sitting on a tuffet since she had time but even if you dont muffet a tuffet for your duff-et you can still eat this probiotic delicacy. these days the commercially prepared version uses renet from the cow’s stomach and calls it cottage cheese with the solid being the curd, the liquid being the whey… but then they wash away the whey so it dont taste sour but they darn near ruined it cuz it dont have no probiotic in it, mama! better to make this mixture of sweet and sour at home. allow a quart’a milk or buttermilk sit on your kitchen counter in a mason jar for 3 days driving up the healthy bacteria content- that’s it. when the milk solids separate from the liquid you got yourself curds and whey. instead of waiting three days you can also take a cup of milk add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and watch it happen in front of your very eyes but best to do it right. next step put the curd through a cheese cloth or stocking letting it drip even more whey out from under it for a period of 12 hours or so. the solid creamy mass before you is…voila home made cream cheese. the left over whey is a definite sour sup of healthy dose bacteria can be used to make bread, pickles or just drunk sweetened or not. see below for more whey recipes. extreme.

millie says soak grains in brackish water

soak grains in brackish water. back in the days of pure water and healthy sunshine, grains were kept in outdoor storage units before being hulled thus exposing them to the elements of sun and rain and morning dew. the process of moistening grains in healthy bacteria allows for the neutralization of phytic acid, a compound that keeps minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium and calcium bound to phosphate salt rather than nutritionally available in grains. these days, due to faster machinery to do the work grains are not exposed to the elements after they are harvested, thus left in their indigestible state and must be fortified with minerals instead. the result is that grains these days are apt to cause bloating, constipation, diarrhea, celiac, IBS symptoms, ezcema. if sprouting is too daunting but if this is the case then soak all grains overnight in a fermented product such as apple cider vinegar or butter milk in order to alkalinize, soften and prepare the grains for eating.

millie says select superior salba seed

select superior salba seed. an ancient medicinal food related to the mint plant, Salvia hispanica L, was historically used by the aztecs who fed it to their messengers to give them running stamina. the white colored salba has been bred to be higher in nutrients than many other superfoods combined. nutty, gelatinous and satisfying this superseed is high protein, omega 3, fibre, magnesium, folate (folic acid), potassium, calcium, iron and vitamin C. satisfying as it cuts foods cravings, maintains blood sugar levels and encourages a positive mood, consider this a well rounded food supplement. Take in porridge, cereal, shakes, salads, yogurt, bread or by itself, 2 tablespoons reportedly contains 6 X more calcium than a glass of milk. so watcha waiting for, suck on salba.

millie says fix the chocolate

fix the chocolate. cocoa, a naturally brown-not-white- bitter condiment in its cooked form contains caffeine, theobromine, theophyllines and tyramines, is habit forming and hepato(liver)toxic enough to kill a dog. When milk-laden though it’s liver toxic capacity decreases as does it’s nutritional presence and the insulinergic and hyperglycemic strength soars as it takes fat and sugar to boot to get it to taste so sweet. cacao or raw chocolate, however is dried without heat and preserved in it’s natural skin, like a peanut. it is high in antioxidants, minerals such as calcium and magnesium, lower in caffeine. actually relaxing to the central nervous system, a serotonin mimicker, naturally unsweetened, it makes a good afternoon feel-good snack. mix with flax, sunflower seeds and dried cherries for a taste explosion. second fix idea, take hot cocoa flavored with cinnamon or cayenne, salba, stevia or dark maple syrup to get your fix. count chocula has nothing on you.

millie says do it by hand

do it by hand. electric grinders, mills, presses and juicers are fast and easy boasting razor sharp stainless steel blades that’ll slice and dice through the most fibrous of vegetative matter. while returning the electric juicer, blender or coffee mill to the Bay may not be the fate of the day, keeping it real by grinding flax seeds and raw cacao in a pepper mill, or using a mortar and pestle to create the curry kills at least four, five or six figurative birds with one hand-thrown stone. 1) heat generated from an electric mill destroys important enzymes necessary to the vitality of the food product 2) it’s greener to do it by hand 3) it’s cheaper to do it by hand 4) people are meditatively building their muscles all over the world with this hand grinding technique whether they have access to electricity or a fancy workout parlour. 5) it tastes better 6) the loose dust generated from the mashing of a granite mortar and pestle contains 16 trace minerals including potassium in a more digestible form than those compressed into a daily multi-vite-min. basically it’s efficient a mano.

millie says stockpile vitamin d

stockpile vitamin d. as the sun’s angle to the earth decreases create an inverse relationship to increase fish and/or vitamin D intake. a fat soluble vitamin, this nutrient preventer of bone diseases such as osteomalacia, rickets and some bone and skin cancers naturally occurs in animal products such as cold water fish, salmon roe, eggs and though not a natural source milk is fortified but usually not ice cream, yogurt or cheese. being fat soluble means that vitamin D can build up and be stored in the body so when taking the fish or oils of cod liver, salmon, albacore tuna, mackerel, halibut, herring, sardines, a mixture or pure source (no dyes, sugar or artificial flavours) vitamin D inconsistent vitamin consumers can take a minimum weekly dose of 7000 IU 1 time per week instead of 1000 IU 7x per week. vitamin D supplementation in some form is important for all people living in northern climates but even moreso for vegetarians and especially vegans. watch the bows of your toddler’s legs as an exaggerated bow could mean subclinical vitamin D deficiency or rickets.

millie says september 3

Straighten up for life everyone, but especially petite…blond…. women…. of Nordic descent…. Prevent and treat osteopenia, with a diet high in almonds, sesame and flax seeds, dark leafy vegetables and organic soy for their calcium, potassium, manganese, boron, silica, vitamin D and phytoestrogens.  Decrease smoking, fluoride treatments and phosophorus, which competes with the uptake of calcium, high in carbonated drinks and, the controversial, dairy.  And let’s get physical, not necessarily with weights, but weight-bearing exercise like walking, jogging and high impact aerobics to stimulate bone to absorb calcium.  Yeah.

vegetarian nutrition

Choosing to eat vegetarian is a choice to take seriously since nutritional deficiencies can result if one embarks on it blindly.  Although I advocate eating lower on the food chain much of the time, and avoiding consuming harmful chemicals and estrogens in conventionally raised beef, dairy, poultry and porc, a BLT without the B doesn’t cut it as a staple or source of protein and micronutrients needed for vegetarian and vegans.

Pregnant women who have been long-time vegetarian or vegan are at risk for miscarriages and difficult pregnancies due to lack of B12, iron and folic acid unless they supplement with vitamins or non-heme sources of these nutrients particularly zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium, B12 and folic acid.

The most important rules to follow in being a vegetarian are to consume protein at every meal.  This means combining legumes with nuts, seeds and whole grains, eat sprouts, sea greens and healthy ferments that contain proteinaceous bacterium.  

Vegetarian Food Combining

millie says august 13

you are what you eat.  in Chinese Medical philosophy life force known as essence comes to us in two forms: from our parents at conception and then again on a daily basis, from food.  So if you eat food with good essence you will have good essence.  if you eat food with good chemistry, you will have good chemistry.  if you eat living food you will have energy.  if you eat nutrient-rich health food, you will be nutrient rich.  eat what you wish to become rather than what’s convenient.
