Morning Glory Fruit Smoothie
The majority of diseases in wealthy countries are from over indulgence. That is to say we are overeating rich, greasy, highly seasoned, denatured and intoxicating foods. We consume to much of just about everything we shouldn't, red meats, eggs, cheese, milk, salt, fried food, and extremely sweet food, refined flour and oil products, chemical ingredients, drugs and alcohol. The overconsumption of all of this wreaks havoc on our bodies. So the result is the deterioration of organ systems in the body. Hence, cancer, diabetes, arthritis and other degenerative diseases. When our bodies systems are blocked or damaged our bodies create heat and pressure and tends to develop such conditions as high blood pressure, constipation, overweight, heart disease and stroke. The main cure for all of this excessiveness is of course elimination. So whatever has caused this disease must stop. If you eat red meat 7 days a week you must stop. If you eat fast food 5 days a week you must stop. If you drink milk with hormones and antibiotics you must stop. If you eat food out of a can you must stop. If you smoke you must stop. Do not think that if the doctor gives you that magic pill, operates or radiates that you can just keep on eating like always because if you do things will not improve. But the truth is that you must stop this excessive lifestyle slowly. If it is meat 7 days a week take it to 5 then 3 then 1. The same with all those cokes you drink slowly bring it down. Or all those coffees through out the day, decrease little by little. I for one have to stop drinking red wine. I love it but I consume too much of that wonderful, glorious juice of mother earth, fermented just right to provide a feeling of silly happiness whilst warming gentle for within. And in place of all of these mischievious foods and drinks which are bad for us we should consume ordinary whole foods just like they are found. Whole and natural untouched by processing. Cooked gently and lightly with love. If we can just do this our cholesterol, blood pressure, weight will drop and our health and energy will increase. It is that simple. But we know it is not that simple don't we. Who am I kidding. If it was that simple then 3,000 americans a day would not die of heart attacks nor would one out of four of us get cancer, nor, nor, nor... However, I feel that more and more of us are realizing the importance of eating right. There are more vegans now that ever before. The best doughnuts in NYC are vegan. The best cupcakes from the cupcake wars are vegan. President Clinton is almost vegan and on and on. On one hand it is showing that you believe in animal rights and on the other you believe in treating your body right. And a great way to treat your body right is by juicing every morning. Throw into that blender any mixture of vegis and fruits and start your day out with a smile from your tummy to your teeth. Try out this fantastically friendly fresh fruit smoothy I made this morning.
