Another Recipe By My New Roots, and a rant.

Today's inspiration is something yummy, quick to make, and healthy! But first a rant about the health care system, and corruption of modern medicine. Also by making smart food choices, you can protect your health, feel better, and boost your ability fight off disease.
To improve health eat organic, raw(uncooked), unprocessed, whole foods (foods close to their original form), and a prodominantly plant based diet. Enyzymes are the life force of a food, helping us to digest food and absorb nutrients, those are lost when food is heated. If we overconsume cooked food, our bodies are forced to work harder by producing more enzymes. Over time, a lack of enzymes from food is thought to lead to digestive problems, nutrient deficiency, accelerated aging, and weight gain. Cooking food can diminish its nutritional value. For example, the cancer-fighting compounds in broccoli, sulforaphanes, are greatly reduced when broccoli is cooked. Certain vitamins, such as vitamin C and folate, are destroyed by heat.
People who follow a raw food diet believe it has numerous health benefits, including:
  • Increased energy
  • Clearer skin
  • Weight loss
  • Reduced risk of disease
The raw food diet contains fewer trans fats and saturated fat than the typical Western diet. It is also low in sodium and sugar and high in potassium, magnesium, folate, fiber, vitamin A, and health-promoting antioxidants. These properties are associated with a reduced risk of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Max Gerson's use of a raw juice-based diet in conjunction with detoxification methods - the "Gerson Therapy"(link to a pdf file), to cure cancer. The book advocates a diet of 75% raw food to prevent  degenerative diseases, slow the effects of aging, provide enhanced energy, and boost emotional balance. It's true than in America it is illegal to "practice" the curing of cancer. Radiation, surgery, and chemotherapy are the only options available for the public. Everything else remains ignored by the conventional medical system. The FDA promotes only pharmaceutical drugs and has a decades-long record of not approving, or even looking at, anything alternative. Americans today are used to fixing problems the quick way – even when it comes to their health. Thus, they rely heavily on prescription drugs to fix their diseases. For every conceivable ailment – real or not – chances are there's a pricey prescription drug to "treat" it. Chances are even better that their drug of choice comes chock full of side effects. The problem is, prescription drugs don't treat diseases; they merely cover the symptoms. U.S. physicians provide allopathic health care – that is, they care for disease, not health. This is not "The Land of the Free", You cannot choose how to cure your cancer. You are given 3 options, or your insurance will not cover your treatment.

That was my rant,
Now for a Yummy Raw Recipe by My New Roots.

"The nut milk you make yourself is totally natural, raw, sugar-free, additive-free, and preservative-free, so it’s the best choice for your health. And you made it yourself!
All you need to make nut milk is your favorite nut (or a combination – get creative!), water, a blender, and a strainer, nut milk bag (is the most convenient). You can even flavor the nut milk with vanilla, raw honey, agave, or dates. Delicious! It can be used in cooking, baking, smoothies, coffee & tea, and of course on your breakfast cereal."
