It snowed in Patagonia today! I’m here in my office freezing my little toes off, and am still so happy and blessed to be in this awesome town with amazing people and living my life purpose! Chris and I have brainstormed about our new school we are desiring to open and all that we will be teaching. It’s so much fun to live life on purpose and to upgrade to my highest potential through thoughts, deeds, and food choices. I really do believe that eliminating all fruit since day 30 has helped me upgrade even more. It has not been easy. In fact, I am really desiring sweet food and my energy has not been as high as when I could chug OJ or bee pollen, AND I know this is the right choice for me.
I went to the Tree of Life on Sunday to hear Gabriel Cousens talk called Live with Gabriel. His talk was extremely informative and right on track with what my intuition has guided me towards. He said that studies have shown that insulin is the death hormone and the aging hormone. Every time we spike our blood sugar with high glycemic foods and raise our blood sugar above 100 (85 is ideal) we create an excess of insulin that puts us on a vicious rollercoaster of craving sweets and feeding our sugar addiction. High glycemic is all sweets including white sugar, honey, agave, most fruits (except lemons, limes, grapefruit, and cranberries), and all white foods such as flour, rice, wheat, barley, etc (the only acceptable grains are quinoa, millet and buckwheat).
Here is a chart from Gabriel’s teachings:
Here is my personal update: I have lost all the excess body fat I had accumulated since Dominic got sick and more, and I absolutely love my body now. It’s fun to be able to fit into my old clothes and feel really good. I still have energy for running, dancing, yoga and more so the lower body weight is really serving me well. I love making food for Chris and his kids and making my own elixirs and juices as the days fly by.
Here is what I have been consuming lately:
Salsa Juice: tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon or lime juice, cilantro, salt, cayenne and sometimes red bell pepper.
Cucumber-Celery with grapefruit juice (the only fruit allowed as it’s properties actually help lower insulin levels according to Gabriel Cousens).
Hot teas sweetened with stevia
Morning hot Elixir: Soaked chia seeds, Sun Warrior Protein powder, stevia, Vitamineral Green, Maca, a wee bit of cacao powder and hazelnut extract. I pour about 4 cups for me and Chris of hot water into my Vitamix and blend on high until it becomes frothy like cappuccino. I’ve been adding about 4 capsules of Reishi and Chaga too. I just open them up and pour them in. This morning though, this drink was just too much for me. I just wanted something light like water so I had a couple sips of this drink and put the remainder in the ‘fridge. Chris poured his over my instant Chia Breakfast Recipe that will be for sale on the website soon.
My body is getting very good at communicating with me. If I do something off or wrong, I emit foul body odors from my skin. I’m also craving much lighter drinks and not even drinking the full gallon a day. I intend to do a gallon but sometimes the day is over and I just haven’t been thirsty (hungry).
As long as I’m feeling good. I’m okay with that. I’m paying attention to be sure to get enough calories. But I’m still dropping about 1/2 pound a day (15 pounds total since I started).
Here is a video I made about 5 days ago:
