Is it Possible to Maintain Alkaline Balance on a Diet including Meat?

Here are the 13 reasons why our bodies, if given the right nutrition, will be so much more alkaline when including meat in the diet. 1.   On the Alkaline Paleo diet stress is greatly relieved.  Stress is the greatest acidifier and getting the right nutrition will calm the mind enormously.  It's been both mine and Ian's experience that stress is no longer nearly the problem it was prior to going on this Alkaline Paleo diet.

Are You a Live To Eat OR a Eat to Live Kind of Person?

Looking For A Different Passion Other Than Food? I have been a Live to Eat (and drink)  kind of person... ... and changing over to a Eat to Live person has been an interesting... and challenging experience. I realised I actually needed to find my passion to fill my need for meaning instead of using food for that purpose. No more thinking constantly of what treat to make or to buy or looking in the fridge constantly to see if something have magically appeared that takes my fancy as a … [Read more...]

Musings on a Friend’s Dinner Party with Vegans, Paleos, Non Red Meat Eaters, Non Fish Eaters, Non Dairy Eaters, Non Sugar Eaters

At a recent friend's dinner party we had all of the above.  I and my beloved are Paleo (me no dairy either),  a vegan couple and the couple who hosted the evening, one doesn't eat red meat and the other can't abide fish.  I don't know what the other four women were or weren't eating.  Oh... and add to that that the vegans and I do not drink alcohol (not since that hangover that lasted all night and the next day!). Not to wonder, our hostess friend was starting to lose patience this time … [Read more...]

Her Letter: Dear fellow Candida sufferers, Yesterday, my very dear husband did the … [Read more...]

Do you know what she said to me, the tumor had remarkably shrunk. It is a benign tumor but it has actually shrunk. I remember being told that my tumor would shrink on this program but I didn't think that it would actually happen as quickly as it did. I have been on the diet for about 3 months now. My MRI shows a considerable … [Read more...]
