2020 Poll

CO2e per Serving

When asked in a survey from Senator Cory Booker, “What issues are most important to you when picking a 2020 political candidate?”; I chose, “Climate Change”, and also wrote in the little box under “Other”,

“Vegan food choices, clean renewable energy (solar, wind), orchards, gardens and composting at all schools, military bases, public lands, prisons, hospitals, etc to stop climate change, feed needy, lead by example, and teach how food impacts climate footprint. Also grow hemp for oil, seeds, textiles, $. And end war.”

I replied to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s survey, “Go vegan for climate, health, economy, sustainability, hunger, peace, animals.”

Pain Management

My favorite foods which may help to naturally prevent and reverse pain include:

Fruit: Most fruit is about 80% water which is believed to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties. (Soak dried fruit before eating or blending in a smoothie.)

Water: Water is said to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Arugula: Dark-leafy greens like arugula are believed to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Celery: Celery is said to have alkalizing anti-inflammatory properties.

Walnuts: Walnuts contain omega 3 fatty acids which are said to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Ginger: Ginger root may help stop the formation of inflammatory compounds, leukotrienes and prostaglandins, and break down acidity and inflammation in joint-fluids. Add to fruit smoothies. (Ginger relieved my vertigo.)

Curry: Curry contains turmeric which contains curcumin said to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

Chili: Chili peppers contain capsaicin which is said to stop the functioning of a hormone that transmits pain signals to the brain.

Genetic Roulette, by Jeffrey M. Smith, is a truly informative and awakening book about the dangers of genetically modified foods and the easy steps to take to avoid them. According to the film: Americans get sick more often than Europeans and people in other industrialized countries and they are getting sicker and there is a correlation of use of GMO with increase in disease rates. The science behind genetic engineering is haphazard, risky, unregulated, and untested for long term use. Plants have been engineered to either tolerate being sprayed with herbicide and not die or produce their own toxic insecticide that breaks open the stomach and kill bugs that eat the plant. The GMO industry claims it has no affect on humans, but there has been an increase is stomach disorders and many other diseases.

There are only nine GMO food crops: soy, corn (not popcorn), cottonseed (for oil), canola (for oil), sugar beets (for sugar), papaya (Hawaiian and Chinese), zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, and alfalfa (for hay) however their derivatives are found in many processed and packaged foods. These can all be avoided by simply buying only foods labelled “Organic” or “Non-GMO”. This is easy to do on The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas Graham.

Wild Edible Cherries

Cherries contain anthocyanins, nature’s pain reliever, and melatonin, another natural pain reliever that also helps regulate the sleep cycle! Anthocyanins are also used by the body to help produce amino acids which are used to produce protein. Cherries also contain fiber and lots of Vitamin C, an antioxidant, with anti-cancer properties. Wow! My favorite cherries are wild black cherries that fall into my yard from my neighbor’s wild cherry tree.

Winter Raw Vegan Style :)

I have been living in Massachusetts (USA) my whole life, all raw since 1999, and vegan since 1990. This is how I stay warm during a cold New England winter as a low fat raw vegan. I wear cotton socks, fleece socks, ankle warmers, boots, sweatpants, t-shirt, turtleneck, sweater, hat, mittens, and coat. I curl up with flannel sheets, blanket, comforter, afghan, and my adorable snugly cat while sleeping. When it’s below freezing outside I sometimes use an electric mattress warmer. To seal my pores and keep body heat in, I rub a little coconut oil on my skin. To moisturize drier winter air and help hold heat in the room, I sometimes use a hot steam vaporizer. I sunbathe my face for warmth and vitamin D. Activities warm me up like shoveling snow, house-work, yoga, fitness, and dance. I designed my home with many windows on the south side which produces ten free degrees of passive solar heat on sunny days. I use oil filled electric radiant heaters and will learn how to build solar electric panels and a wind mill. I drink fruit-smoothies and eat warmed low fat raw vegan soup, warm low fat raw vegan raisin oatmeal, lots of raw fruits (bananas, dates, mangoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, wild apples, wild black cherries, etc.), some herbal tea, a little fatty raw vegan food (avocado, seeds, tree-nuts), a little warming raw-foods (cayenne pepper, ginger, garlic), and some mineral rich foods (celery, lettuce, kale).
