The Organic View

June Stoyer, the host of "Organic View' radio show, recently conducted an interview on the important roles of honeybees and bumble bees, and the dangers we are faced with from their decline. One of her guests, Graham White from Scotland, states that the US has roughly 200 million acres of crops treated with pesticides. This means every seed, every year, year after year is exposed to toxins! He points out that pesticides, in the past, were used as a reaction to the invasion of insects, but the way they are now being used is as a 'precautionary insurance'.  Bees, birds and other insects are disappearing on a massive scale because 200 million acres of US land are poisonous to all forms of insect life - yearly! 
Insect life is crucial for human survival. Their most important role is pollinating flowering plants such as vegetables, that feed us! We can expect a shortage of food in the future with continued use of toxins/pesticides. You can listen to the short interview here. Genetically modified foods, which are implanted with these toxins, will continue to give the human body allergic responses and cause diseases.

Vegetable Cauliflower 'Rice'

Most of our daily meals (while cleansing) consist of cauliflower or turnip 'rice' with raw vegetables and (at times) one or so element of steamed vegetables, yams, soups or cooked lentils (pre-soaked for 24-48 hours to release enzyme inhibitors). For snacks we have sprouts or fruits, including dried fruits such as dates and banana chips. For dessert, we usually have homemade ice cream or raw cacao pudding! Here is our latest recipe for our cauliflower 'rice' with vegetables and steamed asparagus. We had this meal with a side of avocado soup. Check out our simple recipe below. Enjoy!
