Meet my little sis - ALIVE youth Ambassador for Australia



Meet my little sis; Asha!


Asha is still so young yet she has so much passion to change the world! Not even finished school yet and she is an expert in sugar free nutrition, ALIVE foundations first and only Australian Youth Ambassador, Real food nerd and now transitioning Raw foodist... She is pretty amazing!


If I were to name the most inspiring person I know right now it would be Asha. I am so lucky to have her come live with me this year and although I had a little reserve about a teenager moving in, life couldn't be better!

Read on to hear some news from the A team;


One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Unfortunately my father was the one in two and was diagnosed with cancer in late 2004 and passed away not long after. At the time my family and I were ignorant to all the amazing things that we know now. We didn't know that the cancer cells in my dad that we were trying to kill with chemo and radiation were designed by the body to protect itself from an acidic state. We didn't know that cooking meat in a microwave causes the formation of d-Nitrosodienthanolamines, a well-known carcinogen. We didn’t know that most sunscreens contribute to cancer and promote nutritional deficiencies. And we had no idea that cancer could be cured from something called The Gerson Therapy.

The ALIVE Foundation is dedicated to promoting empowerment of people, protection of the environment, and raising awareness of the body’s self-healing abilities. Our goal is to help eradicate disease by lifestyle, through educating the public on alternative and natural remedies; while supporting like-valued organizations that are making a positive difference in humanity.
 
ALIVE’s annual fundraiser, ALIVE New York, will be held in New York City on the 29th and 30th of June. The fundraiser will consist of a two day conference with the world’s leading health experts and the largest Celebrity Health and Eco Benefit and Awards show in the world. The ALIVE Conference brings together the leading Doctors, Experts and Inspirational leaders of today to educate the world on natural health and wellness and how to live a balanced and ALIVE lifestyle free from sickness and disease. The information presented is not often offered to us, and so will broaden the awareness of how our body’s self-healing abilities can reverse and prevent disease. The ALIVE Awards are “The Academy Awards of Health and Humanities” honouring celebrities, individuals and organisations for their contribution to humanity and commitment to leading a healthy lifestyle both physically and environmentally.
 
We want to reach one million people around the world through Global Live Stream of the event, which will be available to purchase from the ALIVE New York’s website, 
http://www.ALIVENewYork.com, in May. All proceeds go to funding natural anti-cancer clinics as well as over 15 other charities. For your money you will receive 15 hours of life changing information from twenty of the world’s top speakers. You will learn how to reverse cancer naturally, learn why cancer is NOT a death sentence & why it should NOT be feared, how to change your world from the inside out & teach others to do the same, how to grow your resources & value financial freedom and how to protect yourself and family in a world of the un-known.

Please take the time to visit the
Alive Website or "LIKE" our facebook page and be part of this history making movement. We have the power to decide our own futures. We have the power to prevent and cure disease. It would break my heart to see another ten year old child lose a parent like I did.



Thanks, ASHA x

No, its not me... I dont smell!














To be honest I have never really smelt bad... Well, I thought I never really smelt bad. The truth is, I haven't really worn deodorant for a few years until I had my baby and all my hormones went wacko... Turns out I smell... REAL BAD! I am also very active so I need something that lasts... Naturally!

When I was in high school I covered myself with the chemicals that everyone did. There was spray all through the locker room all day long and we were inhaling the not only toxic fumes but the awful scent of body sprays. Not because we smelt bad, but because it was the cool thing to do. So many brands out there are targeted at teenagers, most of them don't even get rid of body oder, they are just perfume scents that mix with the smell and make things even worse than they started. But as teenagers, we didn't know anything, we just wanted to smell good.

Then we get a bit older and we believe that our sweating isn't attractive we listen to all the adds on TV that tell us that we need to buy an antiperspirant deodorant. What is an antiperspirant deodorant? Antiperspirant deodorant is one that stops smell and sweating. We buy it because it stops us sweating, but that is the problem right there! THE BODY SWEATS FOR A REASON!! The main reason; is to regulate temperature. When we get hot, our endocrine glands are stimulated forming a watery substance... Sweat. WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Sweating is not the end of the world!
The main ingredient to stop sweating is aluminum; it works by clogging, closing and blocking the pores so you cant release sweat. This, not only interferes with the bodies cooling process but it also traps the toxins that are trying to escape through sweat in your body. Could this be related to breast cancer?? Of cause it could!!! Women are applying these harmful chemicals to the glands and skin that leads to their breast area! Um... Hello?? Adds up perfectly to me... Everything you put on your skin goes straight into your body! Your skin is your largest organ and non-natural deodorants can contain up to 25% aluminum in each bottle! And aluminum is not the only thing we need to watch out for, there are many industrial minerals added to deodorant products that arn't good for us.

Make the Switch!
Don't wait until your deodorant runs out to make the switch. Do it now!
So many woman are worried when they think of trying a natural deodorant due the fact that alot of them don't work! I agree, its a tuff one as I have been through a few lately. Most have such amazing smells and as a body spray are amazing but as a deodorant, they suck! We want something that takes the smell away. The first I tried looked great on the shelf; all natural, organic but when I put it on, it stung like crazy... I had to run to the bathroom and wash it off. Having sensitive skin, I need something alcohol free and I didn't realise that an organic, natural deodorant would still have alcohol in it but its quite common as they use it as a preservative but my sensitive didn't like it and it was put to the side. I tried a few more that smelt amazing, but best for use as a perfume/body spray and then I finally found what I had been looking for... FRESCA NATURAL DEODORANT! This stuff is awesome! I stumbled across it googling late one night and have now been using it for the last couple of weeks and it REALLY WORKS! It is 100% natural, organic and the best part is that it is handmade in Australia. A lovely lady in Western Australia hand-makes every bottle with food grade ingredients and the highest quality essential oils. Founder of Fresca Natural; Elda has a strong passion for making things right and she wants women to think, when putting anything on their skin.  Fresca Natural deodorants, not only smell amazing and have aromatherapy properties, but it really works! Have I said; it really works? 
It contains NO aluminium, NO alcohol, NO parabens, NO synthetics, NO nasty chemicals, NO artificial fragrances or preservatives. I just love it!

I pinky promise you I wont get CANCER!

 Source: thunderedby.tumblr.com
When you make a promise its a pretty scary thing, you are making a pact with someone that you will or wont do something... EVER! Its a an agreement that you are making for life that you shouldn't break! If you broke it, then it wouldn't be a promise would it?? 

Well, a few months ago I was standing in the kitchen with my little sister and she looked at me and said; "Will you promise me something?" I was a little confused, what was going on? Its not often you hear that. I actually thought it was going to be something really stupid and just looked at her and said, "Yehhhh, what?" Thats when she said; "Can you pinky promise me that you wont EVER get Cancer?" I stood there and my eyes welled with tears a little, got a bit annoyed at her and then said; "How can I do that?"... It is the unknown. In the back on my head I have always had this fear that everyone will get it at some stage. There have been so many people around me with Cancer that at a stage in my life I just felt it wasn't if you got Cancer, it was when, as pretty much everyone gets it. Not everyone dies from it but they get it, don't they? Well my sister, who is pretty amazing, kicked my negative attitude into gear told me where to go; "JUST DO IT!! PROMISE ME!!" So I did, we put our pinky's together and pinky promised each other that we will not get cancer. It was pretty exhilarating! It felt great! Right then and there we made a pact that we would do everything in our power to fight the battle of getting the dreaded disease. In saying this, we weren't just thinking we would cross our fingers and toes and pray every night not to get it... We were going to put this promise into action by eating the right foods and adopting a carcinogen free life wherever possible. We had already began with the good foods but it was time to get serious about everything else. Its not only what you eat but its what you put onto your skin, its the energies you have with you and its the lifestyle you live. Now, I truly believe it can be prevented and cured. We just need to stay away from all the chemicals in our lives and choose the clean choices! Eat organic where possible and use ALL natural products! HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! There is so much more we will learn about but lets start with the basics! 

WHO's WITH ME??

KNOW YOUR LEAFY GREENS


We know that greens are good! Ideally we should be having at least 1 large or 2 small bowls of raw salad a day. We should be eating a large amount of the leafy greens!  They are high is chlorophyll, carotenoids, calcium and other minerals and vitamins, as well as essential fatty acids and no cholesterol. The veggies with the darkest colour have the most good stuff, the highest nutrient content!

Know your leafy greens;

Bean greens - high in calcium and iron.

Endive - slightly bitter in taste, high in vitamin A, C, calcium and iron.. Young leaves are the best.

Dandelion greens - tangy taste, rich in vitamin A and C, calcium and potassium.

Kale - tastes like cabbage, high in usable calcium.

Mustard greens - mild to hot taste, high in calcium and vitamin C.

Parsley - rich in vitamin A, B complex, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium.

Romaine lettuce - highest nutrients of all lettuce.

Spinach - contains iron but the oxalic acid make the calcium unavoidable.

Watercress - spicy taste, highest in nutrient content of most greens.

Ref. Adapted from Balch PA, and Balch JP. Prescriptions of Dietary wellness: using foods to heal. New York: Avery Publishing group, 1992.

There are some other types of lettuce and leafy greens but that gives you a few to start with. Throw some in a raw salad with some olive oil, lemon juice or raw apple cider vinegar and absorb the goodness!

RECIPE - RAW Creamy Cashew Kale Chips




What is Kale?

  • Kale is a food definitely sent from above. 
  • It is a rich leafy green vegetable that is light and crispy. 

  • Kale is a green leafy vegetable that is in the same group as brussels sprouts, broccoli and cabbage. 
  • Kale; like broccoli when chopped lets off a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties.
  • It is extremely low in calories. 
  • High in fibre.
  • Its full of many vitamins and minerals that are hard to find in food today and our body needs and thrives from. 
  • It has vitamins K. It is very high in folate, vitamin A and C as well as many others. Folate is 1 of the B vitamins and helps to make protein and keep us going. 
  • It also has quite high amounts of calcium, mangenese, niacin, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. 
  • The list is endless really. It is full of all good stuff!!!


Where do you get it?
If you don't want to grow it yourself try to buy it from a farmers market. Its great if you can purchase your veges straight from the farmers themselves as you know that it is at its freshest. Great organic shops usually have good fresh kale too. Its usually about $4.50 a bunch in season. When you buy kale make sure it looks fresh, green and crispy... Don't settle for the limp stuff.


SO how do you eat it? 

Raw is always best! Raw means that is is still alive. If you heat something up it may still contain certain traces of nutrients but some deficiency has taken place due to the cooking, you are killing the food a little. Researchers believe a process occurs in humans indicating that different raw foods each have unique and potentially significant biological effects and that healers for thousands of years have stressed that raw foods are essential to the healing process and the maintenance of health.  If we are going to eat such a nutrient dense food like kale we want to get everything out of it so its best to eat it raw and there are so many things you can do to maximize the great fresh taste. 
In saying this you can cook it like you would steam spinach, you can add it raw to any salad, and you can have some fun with it and make some kale chips! We LOVE KALE CHIPS! 

Kale chips can be made raw by dehydrating them or you can cook them in the oven on a very low heat until crispy. Our recipe below is amazing! It is creamy, crispy and oh so yummy! A batch doesn't last 5 minutes in our house. TRY IT!

RAW Creamy Cashew Kale Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 Tbls olive oil

  3. Pour mixture into bowl with the kale leaves and massage the cashew mixture into the leaves until totally covered.
  4. Lay kale pieces onto drying racks of your dehydrator. 
  5. Dehydrate on medium over night (6 - 10 hours) ... 
  6. ENJOY! 
if you don't have the urge to try making them you can purchase some LOVING EARTH raw organic kale chips from us. They are yum yum!

RECIPE - The ultimate antioxidant hit (Smoothie and Ice pops)



What are Antioxidants??

Antioxidants are substances that delay the oxidation process. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals which can cause damage. These oxygen free radicals form during normal metabolism and through external factors such as x-rays, chemicals, ultra-violet radiation and pollution.
Antioxidants are the little scavengers that head down into your body and pick up the pieces by preventing and repairing the damage that is taking place all the time. Antioxidants enhance your immune defence and fight all the scary diseases that are contributed to by oxitative damage including cancer, heart disease, macular degeneration, and diabetes. It is a real medicine food! Most antioxidants we consume are in plant foods so eat up!


Why is our antioxidant hit mix so good?
  • Blueberries are full of flavenoids, vitamins, antioxidants, proanthocyanidin, minerals and fiber.
  • Coconut water is full of electrolytes and unbelievably hydrating.
  • Strawberries are full of phytonutrients and antioxidants, they are packed with vitamin C and also an excellent source of vitamin K, manganese, folic acid, potassium, riboflavon, vitamin B5, copper, magnesium, and omega 3 fatty acids.
  • Rasberries are loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. Contains strong antioxidants such as Vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid. Has anti cancer properties.
  • Goji berries contain 18 kinds of amino acids and contain all 8 essential amino acids. They also contain up to 21 trace minerals (the most powerful ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus)! Goji berries are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or plants on earth! They contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by weight, than oranges. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E. Buy it here.
  • Raw Macqui Berry powder has the highest antioxidant quantity of any fruit. Maqui is reported to stimulate weight loss, delays the ageing process and detoxifies and cleanses the body. Research is also showing that it's a powerful anti-inflammatory and contains high levels of polyphenols and anthocyanins. Buy it Here.
  • Chia seeds contain essential minerals, phosphorous, manganese, calcium, potassium, sodium. Also contains high amounts of Omega 3's and 6's. Buy it here.

Ingredients
  • 3 cups coconut water
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen rasberries
  • 1 Tbls macqui berry powder
  • 1 Tpls goji berries

Throw it all in a high powered food processor or blender like a Vita-mix and wizz until all ingredients are smooth.

Easter - Tips to keep it REAL!!

Image source
Easter is a time for family! It is also time with supermarkets full of crap... its all marketing and big brands want you to buy buy buy and eat eat eat!!! And they make it so tempting. They put all their bright coloured products in front of us as we enter and exit the supermarket. They draw our kids in with the bright colours and bunny shapes! They do a fantastic job! Its hard to say no to our children but that chocolate is not good for us, that chocolate is cooked so all nutrients are gone and full of flavour enhances, additives and sugar! How could we give it to our children and think it is ok??? I was reading the ingredients on the back on a hot cross bun packet yesterday and it was not only full of white processed flour but lots of sugar and addititives including raising agents, emulsifiers and lots of numbers and at choose life, live it, do it we always say NO to numbers! What I dont understand is why can all these companies make such a simple thing so complicated? A hot cross bun is basically bread with sultanas in it? Why do we need all the numbers? Well they have to last on the shelf and shelf life in the most important to these big bussinesses ... NOT our health!


All this doesn't mean we need to feel hard done by, we dont need to go with out anything. We just need to have fun with things, dont just buy off the shelf... Involve your kids and HAVE FUN! Here a few tips to keep it REAL!
  • Make your own raw chocolate easter eggs! We know that raw chocolate is good for us; it is made with cocao and it is a super food. When processed correctly it is very high is antioxidants, full of magnesium for the heart and brain and Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), which are major mood elevators and anti depressants. Loving earth have some great raw chclate making kits this easter. Click here to purchase a kit. There are also some great raw chocolate recipes online, just google raw chocolate recipe.
  • Make your own healthy hot cross buns! I found this amazing recipe on the The Healthy Chef website for healthy hot cross buns... You definately wont feel like your missing out here, I made these today and they are amazing! This website is fantasitc and is full of some amazing healthy recipes! Alot of gluten free options! Choose life, live it, do it's all round favourate recipe blog. Click here for recipe.
  • Experient with boiled eggs... Have a boiled egg hunt! Eggs are packed with protein and are so good for you! And if you are going to fill the kids with chocolate during the day then give them a boiled egg for breakfast first as it will help balance the sugar high.
  • Be creative! Hollow out some eggs and paint them with your kiddies! Crafts are fun!

RECIPE - ABALONE ROCK POCKETS


At Choose life, live it, do it; we believe in the whole food way of living! We believe that eating a wide variety of food gives you the maximum amount of nutrients!!! 
Our REAL FOOD chef is a passionate hunter and gatherer. He is a strong believer that hunting should ONLY be done for nutritional benefits, its all about the circle of life and helping each other out... We understand and respect that everyone has different belief's but he believes that the traditional people were the healthiest; research shows that the aboriginals were known to be the healthiest in the world and they ate the most diverse range of foods getting the broadest range of nutrients by hunting and gathering. In todays society, it is hard to get out in the outdoors but it is important that we make time and enjoy it. 

This leads us to our REAL FOOD CHEF's first recipe...

Seafood is one of the highest nutrient rich foods! Growing up on the far south coast and having so many great outdoor opportunities; at choose life we love seafood!

ABALONE ROCK POCKETS

Not many people have heard of abalone but it is a delicacy. It is dived for and it is very limited. It can be purchased at the fish market and the public may collect a maximum of 2 when recreationally diving and this is very important to remember. But if you can get your hands on these little babies just once; you have to try it.

How is it good for us??
Abalone is an excellent source of iron.
Abalone are also a very good source of pantothenic acid
Great source of protein
It is very low in Saturated Fat. 
It is also a good source of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamin, Vitamin B12, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin K, Pantothenic Acid and Selenium.
Great source of omega 3's and omega 6's fatty acids

Abalone can adjust the adrenal glands; with a bidirectional regulator of blood pressure.
Abalone can treat irregular menstruation and constipation.
Abalone has tonic effects; and is a complement to other seafood.

INGREDIENTS:


  • ·      2 X ABALONE SHUCKED AND SLICED (If you cant get your hands on abalone try fish, chicken breast or nut mince.... HAVE FUN!)
  • ·      1 X TOMATO FINELY DICED
  • ·      1 X COS LETTUCE
  • ·      2 X TABLEPOONS OF TAMARI SAUCE
  • ·      1 X TEASPOON RAW ORGANIC HONEY 
  • ·      1 TEASPOON OLIVE OIL


METHOD:

1.    USE A MALLET TO BASH BOTH SIDES OF ABALONE UNTIL TENDER BUT NOT SEPARATED
2.    IN A BOWL ADD BOTH TAMARI SAUCE AND OLIVE OIL, WHISK IN, ADD IN ABALONE, ALOW TO SIT FOR 20 MINUTES.
3.    BREAK DOWN COS LETTUCE UNTIL YOU FIND THE RIGHT SIZED POCKETS FOR YOUR DESIRE.
4.    BREAK OFF BASE FOR AESTHETICS, (DO NOT DISCARD)
5.    USE OTHER PARTS OF COS LETTUCE AND PREVIOUS BASE SEGMENTS TO FINELY SLICE.
6.    NOW… SET UP IN ORDER, COS POCKET, FINELY SLICED LETTUCE, DICED TOMATO.
7.    HEAT A FRY PAN ON HIGH, (it is important to have the fry pan on a high heat as any longer than 10 secs of cooking will cause Abalone to toughen)
8.    WHEN READY, QUICKLY PLACE ABALONE INTO PAN WITHOUT REMAINING SAUCE, STIR VIGOROUSLY AS TO NOT BURN
9.    AFTER APPROX 10 SECONDS REMOVE AND ALLOW TO COOL
10.  ONCE COOLED, PLACE ON TOP OF POCKET, DRIZZLE NATURAL HONEY TO INFUSE WITH SOY SAUCE AND AID AS DRESSING.
