Creamy Pumpkin Pie (50% raw and dairy-free)

Winter squashes are vegetables proven to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-diabetic and insulin-regulating properties. They can be prepared cooked, raw, sweet or savory. There are a variety of winter squashes to choose from, such as sweet dumplings and pumpkins. In celebration of Autumn, we decided to make a homemade organic pumpkin pie! Although we like to eat raw, we decided to bake our pumpkin in order to get a smoother texture, but our crust and some of our pie filling is raw! Growing and eating organic fruits and vegetables is important for good health. You can learn to grow your very own organic winter squashes by clicking here.

Picking Apples In September

Back in September, we drove up to Avalon Orchards for some organic apple picking! We love the opportunity to pick our own organic fruits. Freshly picked (raw and ripe) fruits contain energy that can heal the human body. Organic apples have proven to decrease oxidation of cell membrane fats. This is important in our cardiovascular system since oxidation of fat in the membranes of cells, is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular problems. Avalon Orchards is a Certified Organic Apple orchard located in Innisfil, Ontario. Avalon Orchards apples and apple cider is available at Trinity Bellwoods Farmer's market on Tuesdays.

Below: photos from the orchard- enjoy!

Get Away From All This Crap

The power of berries prevent nerve related degeneration and enhance the neuroplasticity of cells, the transmission of nerve signals and calcium buffering functions.
Below is a snippet from Dr. Robert Morse's latest Q&A video where he responds to the concerns of a health provider, asking about a Nestle formula used on a patient with neurological problems.
"There is not a manufacturer out there that can make a living food formula for people with neurological injuries that is going to help them. None of these formulas is worth a crap. You have to have living foods, living vibrational energetics with chemistry that is put together as 'God' did it. You can not use anything man makes, and most formulas are not built as carbon, but as protein and nitrogen based - high fat high nitrogen. Carbon and oxygen are the fuel of life. These pre-made formulas are way out of balance chemically, and cause mucus to develop in people. There is a huge difference between a formula and a bowl of fruit, in terms of energetics and in the ability to clean, heal and regenerate the human body. I don't care what you do...
You don't make a milky chocolate drink that is like a bowl of fruit "- Robert Morse

Birds And Beans Café - Mimico by the lake

We dropped by the Birds and Beans Café today, where we spent a pleasant afternoon on the patio and then over at the Lakeshore! We purchased a couple of teas to try that are organic and fair trade. The owner also sells organic, fair trade and "Bird-friendly" certified coffees which meet the requirements for organic certification, as well as ensures that they maintain the forest cover - which provides habitat for birds and other wildlife. You can learn more about "Bird-friendly" coffee here.

Raw Zucchini Spaghetti

Raw Zucchini Spaghetti topped off with some raw homemade tomato sauce is great for the summer! It's easy to make and extremely healthy for your body. Enzyme researcher Dr. Edward Howell treated chronic degenerative diseases with a raw food and juice diet that resulted in healing! The upper portion of the stomach does not secrete enzymes. It provides the space for enzymes to digest foods, allowing the metabolic enzymes to rebuild or repair (cure) the body of any deficiency or toxicity. Food that sits in our stomach, doing nothing (cooked foods) for half an hour to an hour starts to become acidic at which point the stomach enzyme pepsin takes over (digestive enzymes), which results in the use of metabolic enzymes, that can be better used to repair the body.
 "Neither vitamins, minerals nor hormones can do any work - without enzymes."- Dr. Edward Howell

'We exist only as nonphysical units of individuated consciousness"

'In the physical world, in accordance with space-time rule set, our limited senses collect the data that define our physical reality. Our nervous system sends certain types and patterns of signals representing the collected sensory data to the brain, which interprets these patterns of signals to create the perceived physical reality within the context of past experience.
Sentient space-time beings such as us, for instance, though we exist only as nonphysical units of individuated consciousness, can interact experientially (experience physical reality) within the constraints of a space-time rule set, which provides the defining assumptions and physics for our interactive space-time virtual reality experience in the Physical Matter Reality consciousness evolution trainer.
Consciousness just is, while awareness ranges from very dim to very bright. Awareness collects data while intelligence is an attribute of awareness that processes, manipulates, evaluates, and interprets that collected data to produce original higher level understanding, organization or insight.
You have no massive body. Only the interactive experience of one. That virtual rock exists only in the simulation but because your body also exists in that same simulation, it can bonk you in the head and you will experience the trauma and suffer the consequences that the rule-set (science of energy transfers) computes.'

Strawberries and Cherries For June

What's in season in Ontario for June? Strawberries and cherries! Strawberries and cherries (amongst others) are fruits that have the most magnetics and astringents. Magnetism heals the human body. The Earth is one of the largest natural sources of magnetic wave energy. The body's magnetism comes from the earth's own magnetic field and from the magnetism produced through metabolism. Astringents are substances of a chemical compound that has a 'binding' action on tissue, that result in wound healing and conditions of the digestive system. They are used as remedies. During the summer we try to eat 90- 100% raw. We have started off our summer enjoying some local organic strawberries and cherries. They help hydrate the body and provide nutrition to feed the blood and cure 'disease'.

Does truth come in a package or does it require individual understanding?

Note: Big Truth is defined as fundamental truth (the 'big picture' truth).

'There may be some overlap between consciousness and at least some religious values because religion often speaks to human values and human values at their root, evolve from the values of low entropy consciousness. There may also be a connection because of religion's occasional association with those who have deeply known 'Big Truth' and nobly tried to embody it and package it for large numbers of others. Unfortunately, history shows that such an effort usually ends up ugly and twisted for the majority who eventually try to reach salvation through ritual, dogma, close-mindedness and violence.
An effort to spread 'Big Truth' may be a noble undertaking, however, using an organization to spread 'Big Truth' to the multitudes, many of whom are not yet ready to personally assimilate it's underlying wisdom, has ended up being counterproductive. Once organized, the 'Big Truth' - which requires individual wisdom to understand - is replaced by culturally relevant dogma that everyone can easily understand and a structure designed to grow the power, influence, and cash flow of the organization.
 Fear-based organizations (believe our way or suffer the awful consequences) are inherently and fundamentally incompatible with the promulgation of spiritual values and growth which require love-based individual understanding. Trying to express and spread love through dogma, self- righteous arrogance, legislation, political or social pressure, narrow-mindedness, or fanatical violence is like trying to strike a wooden match under twenty feet of muddy water using only your elbows.'

Living Banana Nut Muffins - organic, raw (dehydrated and live with enzymes)

Living foods are raw foods (vegan) that contains enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that the body needs to heal and maintain optimal health. The 2 types of enzymes in our bodies are digestive and metabolic enzymes. Digestive enzymes digest food and metabolic enzymes carry out our body's functions. The digestive and metabolic enzymes in our bodies are in competition with each other. When we eat more raw food (live with enzymes), the digestive enzyme potential in our bodies does not have to be used for digesting, and so allows the metabolic enzymes, that run our body and keeps all organs and tissues working properly, to rebuild new and healthy cells. On the other hand, when we eat cooked foods, digestive enzymes are needed to digest these dead foods, which also accumulate in the body for years and become acidic causing disease. The constant use of digestive enzymes slows down the use of metabolic enzymes which in turn, slow down our healing/regenerating process that prevents us from maintaining optimal health.
We love our dehydrator and have recently come up with a recipe for 'Living Banana Nut Muffins'. All the ingredients used contain enzymes and have not been cooked. Our nuts were sprouted and we used fresh shredded coconut along with dried dates for added sweetness. We also topped them off with some raw cacao nibs. We absolutely loved the results and felt they tasted just like baked banana nut muffins! See recipe below.

'To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person.'

Quote (above) by: Bruce Lee

"Everyone is trying to become something, both physically and inwardly, psychologically, psychically and, if I may use that word, spiritually, we are all struggling to become something. And when one is trying to become - ambition, competition, trying to achieve some status politically or religiously, then you have no relationship with another nor with nature... You have no relationship to it. You look at it, perhaps you swim there. But the feeling of the sea with its enormous vitality, enormous energy, the beauty of a wave, the crashing of a wave upon the shore, there is no communication between that marvellous movement of the sea and yourself... If you don't perceive that - the sea, the quality of the water, the waves, the enormous vitality of the tide going out and coming in, if you are not aware of that, how can one be aware or be sensitive to human relationship? ... Beauty, if one may talk about it, is not merely in the physical form, but beauty in essence is that quality of sensitivity, the quality of observation of nature.
Life is relationship. Without relationship we cannot exist. But we have reduced that relationship to mere sensory responses. I wonder if one is aware of this complexity of relationship.
It is important to understand the nature and the structure of relationship. To change this corrupt society you must change, you must change yourself radically... to bring about a mutation in the very mind, in the very cells of the brain. " - Jiddu Krishnamurti

'We cannot be aware of what is beyond our awareness'

Thomas W. Campbell is a physicist and author of the book series, 'My Big TOE'. He was the first person that opened my eyes to the importance of eating healthy, in order to have an unobstructed body that would allow us to be more conscious of our space (things and people) as well as our potentials. We are currently listening to his audio book files that he has recently released, and we strongly recommend the series to anyone wanting to expand their awareness.
'Allowing the outside theoretical possibility that our beloved physical matter reality may be a local reality, a subset of something larger, is the first step toward comprehending a bigger picture. This possibility breaks the conventional paradigm of physical matter reality being all there is, and replaces it with a more expansive paradigm that forms a logical super set - the limited little picture concept is fully contained within a more general bigger picture concept. If the larger and more general paradigm provides a better and more concise understanding of the available data, as well as produces valuable new knowledge, approaches and processes, then the more general conceptualization is also a more accurate, productive and truer representation of the whole. An improved reality paradigm is one that broadens and deepens the available solution space relative to existing data and problems in a way that is practical and useful. It is easy to understand the limitations of a bacterium's perspective as it is difficult to understand the limitations of our own perspective. That is natural enough. We cannot be aware of what is beyond our awareness. However, we can be open to learn new things. And in the process, expand the scope of our awareness, and therefore, our reality to it's outer limits.'

Dehydrated Green Dairy-free Pizza

We are frequently referring to 'The Detox Miracle SourceBook' by Robert Morse, N.D., to guide us in the foods we choose to eat. The energy from (raw) Green foods heals us, affect the pituitary glands, activates the cells, cleanses the body and builds muscles and tissues in the body. They are also alkalizing foods that help the body get rid of acids.
We decided to purchase a dehydrator so we can start to create a variety of dishes that consist of the usual healthy ingredients that can still be eaten raw. On Monday, we had a 'Pizza Night' and made a couple of delicious healthy thin crust pizzas that we topped off with a variety of organic ingredients. On one of our pizzas, we added black olives (raw), garlic, red onions (raw and dehydrated), parsley (raw), spinach (raw) and tomatoes (raw). On the other, we had yummy cooked yams, basil (raw), shiitake mushrooms and green peppers (raw). The results were amazing! Our raw (dehydrated) pizza crusts were made of green pepper, green kale, pre-soaked sesame seeds, chia seeds, shredded coconut and hemp seeds. Both our pizzas were gluten free, dairy free and nut free. We also used a small amount of seeds, since we felt most raw pizza crust recipes used more than necessary. Check out our pics below! Recipe coming soon.

"Every man is the builder of a Temple called his body..."

The 'singing' sounds of the Tibetan Singing Bowls are powerful harmonic hums that can calm and energize the body, balancing the body's chakras (energy centers). Antique bowls are mainly made of high quality bronze with other metals such as gold, silver and iron. They are more accurately called Himalayan Bowls, and are used throughout the Himalayan regions such as Tibet, Nepal and India. I recently discovered these powerful harmonic sounds, that have helped me drastically, to relax and explore my body's energy centers. These sounds are used for Healing and Auric alignment by using specific musical notes as related to the Seven chakra system. The notes are C/D/E/F/G/A/B. I absolutely love the effects of the Himalayan Bowls and strongly recommend that you take the time, each day and night, to meditate to the different chakra notes. 
You can find all seven notes in these videos by Temple Sounds. You can also purchase your own Singing Bowls at the TempleSounds' website. Enjoy!

Caveat Emptor, (Latin: “let the buyer beware”)


Image source unknown

Although I support the 'labeling of GMO food', I can't help but wonder how much time and effort is wasted in trying to convince government agents and corporations that the public has a right to know what kind of food they are eating. We need people in the health industry, to do their jobs and use their position to make the changes necessary for a healthier society. The public continues to demand GMO labeling, while some are fully aware that corn (for example) and the foods that are packaged in our groceries stores (containing corn ingredients), are genetically modified and dead food - whether labelled or not.
Would it be best to use our time and energy in educating ourselves on healthy eating, and accepting that most food is GMO?
Once they label GMO food, then what?
What happens if you find out all the food you were eating was genetically modified?
Was this cause for the purpose of seeing these labels in place, or so that you can eat healthy food and stay away from GMO food?
If you research deeply, you will find that you will most likely have to cut out most of the food you are eating (if you are on a Standard American Diet). So instead of waiting for labels, you can use your energy to educate yourself on the food industry and you will find that if you want to be healthy, you need to make these changes now. You don't have time to wait to see labels. Accept what you know is GMO, stay away from it, stop buying 'dead' packaged foods, because whether you know that it's genetically modified or not, it is unhealthy to eat.
Put your energy towards growing your own food because you will know what you are growing. But this is definitely a challenge for those living in the city and renting apartments or condos. For those who are faced with this challenge, such as us, we are buying organic fruits and vegetables that we have researched about - that are not common GMO foods. We also don't eat anything dead, like cereals or packaged pastas, microwave dinners, etc. This demand for GMO labeling is equivalent to cigarette boxes being labelled (Cigarettes cause lung cancer).
Labels are necessary, but for those who have already educated themselves about the GMO foods that do exist, and for those who already know that 'dead' food does nothing except confuse and hurt the human body, what are you going to do about it now - for the well being of your family and yourself?

Organic food is monitored and contains the least amount of GMOs, but you must continue to research changes, since American organic apples and pears may contain antibiotics, but Canadian organic apples and pears do not. Learn more:

'Circumstance does not make the man. It reveals him to himself.'

Excerpt from 'As a Man Thinketh' by: James Allan
James Allan is the author of 'As a Man Thinketh'. He was a British 'philosophical' writer who inspired and motivated others through helping them realize that: 
'A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.... As the progressive and evolving being, man is where he is, that he may learn, that he may grow... When he realizes that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being, out of which circumstances grow, he then becomes the rightful master of himself.' 
For a New Year's resolution,  I strongly recommend reading 'As a Man Thinketh'. The audio file can be found here. Enjoy!
