1. Statement about Ascension and protein requirements: *** One thing to remember about Ascension and shifting nutrition recommendations is that the more crystalline-based our DNA becomes, the less protein we require. Protein breaks down into amino acids which are the building blocks for the carbon-based DNA structure. So donʼt worry so much about getting enough protein, there is plenty of protein in the plants you eat, nuts & seeds, quinoa, and le- gumes. You might require more protein if you are doing alot of exercising, weight-training and athletics. (see below – vegan protein sources)***

2. Link to carb counting website:  How many grams of carb in foods: http://www.monkeymatters.com/charts/simple_index.htm

 

3. Recommended carbohydrate levels for optimal health:

0-50 grams – rapid weight loss
51-80 grams – slower weight loss
81 – 150 grams – maintenance (the more exercise you do, the more carbs will burn)

*** less exercise – 81 – 100 grams

*** more exercise – 101 – 150 grams

150 – 300 grams – high blood pressure, cholesterol problems, immune problems, pre-diabetes, heart disease
300+ grams – TROUBLE!!! diabetes, cancer, heart disease, obesity

4. List of Food in Carbohydrate category: *** use in moderation ***

Bread (Use Ezekial is a must)
Cereal
Crackers
Bran
Snack/Breakfast Bars
Oatmeal (use quinoa instead)
Baked Goods
Pastries (quinoa pasta available)
Cookies/Cakes

Pasta
Fruit ***
Fruit Juices (different than juicing)
Fruit Smoothies (green smoothies with some fruit OK)
Sodas (Kumbucha Tea OK)
Energy Drinks

Beer
Rice (wild rice OK, brown rice occasionally)

6. Best food article I’ve ever read: Long, but worth every minute. “What if It’s All Been a Big, Fat Lie?” Gary Taubes, New York Times 2002 – http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/07/magazine/what-if-it-s-all-been-a-big-fat-lie.html

7. Great read and print article for family and friends to explain blood sugar : “The Defi nitive Guide to Insulin, Blood Sugar & Type II Diabetes” Great article to print for friends and family. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/diabetes/#axzz3AlmV11kl

8. List of vegan protein sources:  http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.php

9. Westin A. Price website mentioned by Michelle on Sunday’s call – whole food resource during Q & A http://www.westinaprice.org Great nutrition website ***Recommends meat, so substitute***

10. Terrific cookbook on whole food nutrition, almost like a textbook: “Nourishing Traditions”, Sally Fallon ** http://www.nourishedkitchen.com ** great for fermented food recipes for good intestinal bacteria and enzymes

11. Basics of “What the heck do I eat” PDF –  http://www.trustedhands.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfi les/phase2dietwithexplanation.pdf

This is general, but a great start. Add to this list with your own favorites, juicing, sprout ing, supplements, good water source, etc. Don’t worry about calories. If you eat good fats, your hunger will balance easily. Remember breakfast as a big meal.

Chinese proverb: Eat like a King at breakfast, Prince (worker) at Lunch and Pauper at dinner.”

12. Favorite recipe website:  http://www.yummly.com (most popular recipe app in the world 🙂 Just type in vegan or vegetarian and you will gets LOADS of recipes

13. Kitchen appliance MUST for quick and easy meals –  http://www.oster.com/cooking/food-steamers *** *** I do ALL my veggies in this and makes a ton of extra for decreased cooking time, and leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day. Freezer to table in 30 minutes or so. Also cooks my quinoa in 30 minutes perfect every time. And I can forget about it and it turns off when Iʼm distracted on

14. Juicing : I am not a juice expert – but the HFATG (James Evans on Facebook) has A LOT of juicing experiemce. So make yourselves known to the group so members can ask questions.

15. Revamped food pyramid – we can add to this and make it better : Food Pyramids are mar- keting tools, with heavy infl uence of the very powerful industries producing sugar, meat, dairy and grains. Here is my attempt at one for healthy blood sugar levels.

Bad Fats and Red Wine

Herbs, Spices, Superfood Greens

Fruit and Healthy Fats

(nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocado)

Quinoa, Legumes, Brown Rice and Whole Grains (Eggs)

TONS of fresh, organic vegetables – eating mostly green and above ground

16. Best greens to eat:

. Spirulina – 3 times the protein of steak!!!

. Wheat Grass – Highly alkalizing and promotes healthy blood

. Barley Grass – 11 times more calcium than cowʼs milk

. Chlorella – rich in B-vitamins and helps hardened arteries

. Wild blue-green algae – first form of life on Earth, high protein, B-vitamins, brain function and immune system booster.

. Parsley – bones, kidneys, bladder, immune system
