Q: I have a very busy lifestyle and don’t have time to prepare vegetables. Any tips?
Yes, there is a list of ideas here: Ideas for Quick Healthy Meals. While fresh vegetables are the best, for people who don’t have the time to cook every day, frozen vegetables are fine and are easy to quickly heat up, and we also recommend making a large batch of vegetables (like a stir fry, vegetable soup or other vegetable dishes) and refrigerating it. You can then reheat it or eat it cold throughout the week to get your vegetables.


Q: I thought fruit was healthy. Why am I not supposed to eat it?
Fruit used to be healthful to eat, many years ago. In recent years (the last thirty or even more), the soils of orchards and crops have been depleted of nutrients, thus leaving the fruit, vegetables and grains grown there deficient in vitamins and minerals. So fruit no longer has the same nutrient content it previously had. This is true even of most organic fruit. Fruit is also treated with more pesticides than other foods, and the pesticides leech into the fruit. So when we consume the fruit, we consume some of the pesticides as well. But the most important reason that we recommend avoiding fruit is because fruit does contain higher levels of sugar than other natural foods, and additionally, fruit has been hybridized to increase the sugar content (sweetness) of the fruit. The sugar in fruit FAR outweighs any potential benefit! Most people have far too many sugars and simple carbohydrates in their daily diet, and most people have many nutritional imbalances that compromise their ability to properly handle these sugars. Therefore, eating the sugar found in fruit causes many imbalances in the body. Back in the years when fruit had more vitamins and minerals and less sugar (the fruit actually tasted less sweet), there was more benefit in eating it, but not today. Read the Q & A section Sugar and Sweeteners for information on the harmful effects of sugar. There is more information on this subject in the articles Fruit – It’s Health Benefits and Problems and Carbohydrates – Sugars and Starches.

Q: Is eating organic fish once per week too much? What about smaller fish like Sardines, Anchovies or Smelt?
There really isn’t such a thing as “organic” fish. Most large fish, like Salmon and Tuna, is either farm-raised in nets in the ocean or in other farming ponds, or it is fresh-caught wild which does not mean it is “organic” since no one can control what toxins appear in lakes and oceans. Unfortunately, neither farm-raised nor wild-caught are healthy today. The farm-raised fish are very diseased and are fed horrific foods and chemicals. Since many are farmed in nets in the oceans, their diseases have leaked into the oceans and contaminated the wild fish, which is unfortunately true of wild salmon today. Additionally, pollution has caused chemical and heavy metal levels to rise in the oceans. These are absorbed by wild fish and stored in their tissues. The reason large fish are more contaminated is that they live longer so have more time to be exposed to and absorb these toxins. They also tend to be fattier, and toxins are mostly stored in fat tissue. So it’s generally best to avoid salmon and most large fish right now. If you absolutely have to, wild-caught salmon is preferable over other larger fish and is okay to eat once a week at most. Small fish, like Anchovies and smelt are good. Sardines are great! Sardines have high levels of essential oils including Omega-3 and Vitamin D, so we highly recommend that people eat Sardines instead of tuna. In fact, we recommend every adult consume 3 cans of sardines per week. Click here to see Sardine Recipe Ideas for some yummy ways to prepare this healthy little fish!


Q: Is shellfish, like crab or shrimp, okay to eat?
No. It is best to stay away from bottom-feeding fish, like catfish, crab, shrimp, clams, oysters, scallops, mussels and other shellfish, as they are scavengers and eat waste from the ocean floor, such as chemicals, feces, dead animals and fish (including animals that died from toxicity or illness). When you eat toxic foods, especially if you have a weakened digestive and immune system (which is the case with nearly everyone today), you will absorb that toxicity.
