I use my spice blend (turmeric, cumin, parprika, coriander, many others), Celtic Sea Salt, powdered acidophilus and Bifidus, seeds, and occasionally I will add raw tahini (ground sesame seeds). The seeds I use our flax, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, Chia and cumin. The spices I use all aid with digestion and strengthen the immune system. The spices are turmeric, coriander, cumin, paprika, and several others. Finally, I add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and herb-infused apple cider vinegar.
A few minutes before I eat the salad I take a small handful of Chlorella and/or Spirulina. I take these without fail, as I have since I discovered them in 1996. I immediately felt the effects of Spirulina when I first took it. It gave me more energy and stamina while running. I had been a cooked food vegetarian for 15 years when I discovered Spirulina and I have taken either Spirulina and/or Chlorella every day since then. The importance of taking Spirulina/Chlorella with our meals is that they have the highest amount of protein of any food, 60% on average. It is critical that we consume a small amount of protein with everything we eat for proper digestion and nutrient absorption. Other nutrients in both Spirulina and chlorella assist with digestion. The dietary fiber in Chlorella is the best known for digestion, cleansing and toxin removal, including heavy metals.
I also take Probiotics, the friendly bacteria we require, with each and every meal I eat. They help us create an ecosystem within our digestive tract. Probiotics are critical to human health. Lactobacillus Acidophilus is a friendly bacterium necessary for the digestion of proteins. It also reduces fungus infections, lowers blood cholesterol, aids general digestion and enhances nutrient absorption. I usually use the Custom Probiotics or the DDS Junior.
All this can be found in my 7 Component Health Protocol.
Last, but not least, I bow my head and thank God for the healthy, delicious raw meal made from the things that He created and that I was educated enough not to destroy it with cooking so I could make it taste better. I thank Him also for giving me the fortitude and the willingness to eat this way every night. I consider myself one of the luckiest people because each night I happily consume a delicious meal that brings me such Great Health.
