NUTS for Good Health
Have a handful of nuts daily!! They are great combined with fresh or dried fruit, or with cottage cheese. Use mostly Raw Almonds. Also, you may add a variety of other nuts, including walnuts, hazelnuts (filberts), pecans, peanuts and cashews. Again, make sure they are RAW and NOT roasted.
Olive oil is excellent for your health. It can be drank raw by adding ½ teaspoon to a few ounces of cold juice. Once you get used to it, you can increase the dose to up to 2 tablespoons! Drink this many times throughout the day. Also, it can be used on cooked vegetables and salads. Olive has been shown to lower bad cholesterol and increase your good cholesterol! It will also lubricate the intestines to help with colon health and eliminations. Do not take in more than you can digest. If you need help digesting it, try manipulation/massage to the mid-upper spine, and/or digestive enzymes.
For cooking, use butter; Dr. Mercola recommends Coconut Oil. Either way, it is best to simply never fry or stir fry foods, as it destroys the vitamins, and makes the oil saturated. This is the type of fat that destroys arteries and causes heart attacks and strokes. So boil or steam your foods instead!!
If you are going to use butter on your cooked vegetables, use REAL butter, NOT margarine and NOT “I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter.” The best is RAW butter, a live food. Most butter is pasteurized, which destroys this precious live food and many vitamins.
