    Nature's signatures in a salad

    What was in the classical period of Rome called "Law of Similarities" is now called "Teleological Nutritional Targeting". You may have heard it referenced as "Whole food signatures", "Organ twins", "Nature's superfoods", "God's Pharmacy", etc...

    But the theory is the same: every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater!

    I have been teaching this theory for a while, but when I received the same email from THREE different people in just a week, I knew I had to forward it to you too. I don't know where it originated, hence can't quote a name, but can vouch for the information being pretty spot on.


    A sliced Carrot looks like a human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like a sliced carrot! and Yes science shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow and function of the eye. "Eat carrots to see in the dark", remember that?

    Tomatoes and Capsicum have four chambers and are red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes and bell peppers are indeed pure and important blood food.

    Grapes hang in a cluster in a shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell. Check for yourself, but most of us know that grapes are also profoundly vitalizing heart and blood food.

    A walnut looks like a little brain- a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuro transmitters for brain function.

    Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain function and yes they look exactly like the human kidneys.

    Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are about the same. Is you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

    Egg plant, Avocados and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female- they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?- it takes exactly 9 months to grow an Avocado from blossom to ripened fruit!

    Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

    Sweet potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics

    Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.

    Grapefruits, Oranges and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts

    Onions look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which was the epithelial layers of the eyes.

    Bananas, Cucumbers, Zucchini and more target the size and strength of the male sexual organ.

    Peanuts have a profound effect on the testicles and sexual libido. Peanuts were banned as a food for males by the church during the middle ages. Most people don't realise that arginine, the main component of Viagra comes from peanuts


    As for this week's recipe, I thought it only appropriate to use some of my favourite ingredients (from above) and create a mega delicious salad...

    For the Kale
    2 Large handfuls Kale... okay 3!
    2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    2 Tbsp Lemon juice
    1/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt

    For the rest
    1 Large Carrot
    1 Large Kumara/ Sweet potato
    1 Ripe Avocado
    Sundried Tomatoes

    -While getting all prepared, have sundried tomatoes soaking in warm water
    -In a large bowl mix the Oil, lemon juice and salt
    -Destalk and chop Kale, then add to the large bowl
    -Use your hands to really massage the juices into the Kale. The salt will also help break down the cell walls of this tough green and make it really nice and soft
    -Grate the carrot and raw sweet potato. I used a Vegetable Spiralizer, makes the salad so much more exciting!
    -Slice, chop, cut the rest and toss

    7 x 10 second tips to conquer Stress and OMG Kale Chips

    Did you know that the word Stress is the same in nearly every language? Maybe even all; I just didn’t know how to read Korean or Hindu when I looked it up...
    The interesting thing however is when you ask a group of 12 people what Stress means to them, you will get 12 different responses. What’s even more interesting is that a small amount of Stress is helpful, vital even, to stay focused, motivated and excited, but as constant problems take their toll, this could have giant effects on your health, energy levels, concentration, lifestyle, your relationships, weight, increased blood pressure and weakening of immune system.
    We’ve all experienced it and it’s not very nice it is? I work predominantly with busy people and driven professionals, coaching them to achieve superbeing health and their ultimate energy levels- guess what the #1 word is in their vocabulary when they come to me? Not a difficult question and what’s better is it doesn’t have to be difficult to eliminate this word from your vocabulary for good!
    Silly dancing with mum and sister-
    Oct 2009, applying my own strategies during worst time of my life
    It worked!

    Here are my top Seven Stress Conquering Tips (in no particular order):
    1. Plan your meals. Planning your meals ahead of time could quite literally transform your life. Everytime I don’t go through with this, I tend to end up going to the supermarket way more than I should and buy way more than I need. Sound familiar? Take a piece of paper and separate it into 7 columns, look at your diary ahead of time and for everyday you are home for dinner write a dinner idea and list main ingredients you will need for it. When you are shopping, double those ingredients so you always have enough left for lunch the next day. This will save you plenty of cash, time, frustration, make you enjoy creating dinners again and look forward to next day (leftovers taste so much better after all).
    2. Choose the stairs. Your body can fight stress better when it is fit, so exercise is a biggie. The good news is you don’t have to be a marathon runner to reap the results, just choose the stairs instead of the lift, cycle to work instead of drive and catch up with friends by taking a walk, instead of coffee and cake. If you find it difficult to exercise 30 minutes each day, just do 5 or 10 (and then be pleasantly surprised at how you can’t stop once you start going!)
    3. Clown much? ‘Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you increase your chances of a heart attack’. The research behind health benefits of laughter is everywhere. Those using humour to cope with stress have stronger immune systems, 40% less chance of strokes, digest food faster, experience less pain during dental surgery and live at least 4,5 years longer! So next time you are tossing up between movies- go for a comedy, spend time with people that make you laugh, read and tell jokes and when all else fails- trip up and laugh at yourself, really really loud.
    4. Peace out. Are you one of those people whose entire life is in your bedroom and just by walking in, you get a headache? Take out the TV, computer, electrical devices, and clutter, pick up the clothes off the floor and pack away what you don’t need till next season, remove all food and dishes. Replace with pot plants, wall paintings, colours that make you relaxed and happy and everything clean and fresh. Creating a peaceful place to sleep will have a huge effect on your mood when you wake up too.
    5. Pray for others. You shouldn’t need scientific proof to feel the positive effects on your health and stress levels by praying for others. But for those who find it a rather ‘different’ approach, you might like to know that a huge research was conducted at University of Michigan, interviewing people about the nature of their prayers, finances and health and discovery showed very clearly that praying for others helped reduce the financial stresses and strains as well as improved wellbeing of the person doing the praying. If you aren’t the type to get on your knees and talk to someone you don’t believe to be there, you can still get the results by keeping a journal writing your well wishes for others or simply send them love, light and happiness from the heart.
    6. How about lunch? When was the last time you’ve walked away from your desk at lunch time? 60% of people eat at their desk and just 10% take a decent break away from the desk at all. A lunch break gives your brain the same opportunity as when you sleep- to rest and repair. Imagine skipping a night’s sleep, will you be productive the next day? Why should skipping a lunch break be any different? Also getting away from your computer and eating food makes you conscious of what you are eating and appreciating it more, sending signals to your body that you care about it and want the food metabolised and digested properly. Do you see how this would affect your health and energy levels?
    7. Get coached. Imagine what a better place the world would be if each one of us had a coach, a mentor, someone to help us clarify direction, strategise our actions, optimize our environment and achieve results easier faster and with remarkable success rate. So when you look for a coach, make sure they too have a coach. Since I know you may be wondering- well, I have several J

    As for this week’s recipe and staying on the simplifying, energising and stress reducing topic, here’s one of my favourites! Remember the delicious Curry in a Hurry recipe? I usually have leftover sauce (it’s pretty filling), so I make...

    ‘OMG’ Kale Chips- because that is exactly what I said when I first pulled them out of the dehydrator. Wow, I couldn’t believe how good they tasted! Best ever!! 
    For the essentials
    Dehydrator (best option, but oven OK too)

    For the sauce
    For the chips
    Bunch Kale

    -Destalk all the kale leaves and roughly chop
    -Transfer the kale and sauce into a large bowl
    -Use your hands to massage the sauce in really well and to coat all of the kale
    -Assemble onto mesh trays, evenly distributed
    -Dehydrate at 110degrees F overnight
    [Tip: if you don’t have a dehydrator, turn your oven on the lowest setting and check every half hour to make sure they don’t burn)
