Italian Odyssey 5: Feminine Leadership 5 Day Workshop: Yikes the food!

I used to go on quite a lot of retreats in the past.  About six months ago it occurred to me that I would no longer be able to participate in one of my favourite retreats.    Why? Because the meals are all vegetarian.  My retreat leaders believe that eating meat is not right for spiritual growth.  Wow,  I am excluded simply because I cannot eat  grains and pulses that are a substantial part of the fare provided. And now I am here in this wonderful location in Italy, at this wonderful Feminine … [Read more...]

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.

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...]

Let me tell you my Story of Italy and How I Lost my Sanity

Italy on a alkaline paleo diet....hmm.... can I tell you about the cakes?  Northern Italy has the best cream cakes ever, well probably not as good as Holland but...France has the crustiest bread and the cherries and peaches in Italia are out of this world!  All these things have been absolutely no no's for me since I started using the Paleo diet  and getting well a year ago.  Oh, I haven't mentioned the Italian wines!

A Brain Tumour Shrinks- a testimonial from someone on this diet

The Testimonial October 3rd 2011 The other day I went to my neuro-oncologist to get my bi-annual MRI as I have a brain tumor that was discovered in 2001. 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...]
