Did you know these leaves are edible?

It appears to have become some what of a "norm" to throw away leaves from celery, broccoli, cauliflower plus others.

Why have we become so accustomed to throwing this part of the vegetable away? They are edible and full of goodness!

According to Nutrition Data, raw broccoli leaves are a

“good source of Protein, Thiamin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron and Selenium, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Manganese.“

Here is a recipe for delicious Roasted Cauliflower & Broccoli Leaves


Use any leaves: Cauliflower, Broccoli, Kale or any green:

Soy Sauce to drizzle over the leaves. (Its best to use organic Tamari, wheat free sauce low sodium instead of Soy Sauce)


Four cloves of garlic.

Any herbs or spices you like

Sesame Oil or Olive Oil (Mei Lei uses both.) Delicious with only Sesame Oil OR coconut oil

Salt and Pepper to taste (I use Himalayan salt as its FULL of trace minerals).

What To Do:

Pre-heat the oven at 200 °C/400°F .

Wash the cauliflower and leaves and cut into bite-size pieces, and then discarding the toughest outer layer of leaves. (Preferably into the composter!)

Smash a few cloves of garlic and chop them coarsely. Chop some scallions as well. The whole scallion, not just the white part. (I cheat and use already cut up garlic which is 2 cloves per teaspoon.) Note, you can omit the scallions if you don’t want them or don’t have them. This dish tasted the same to me with or without them.

Toss the garlic, onions, and cauliflower with a generous splash of soy sauce and oil in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper- or absolutely anything you want fennel seeds, tumeric, cayenne pepper, herbs spices

Place the uncovered roasting pan in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the green leaves are crisp and both the florets and the thicker stalks are tender and can be pierced easily with a fork. Don’t worry if you overcook the leaves. I love them crispy. It is so simply and so quick.

Do you think you are healthy by eating fruits & vegetables?

The Most Contaminated Fruits & Vegetables


Apples and Pears:

The FDA states that more pesticides are found on apples than are found on any other fruit or vegetable. There is 36 pesticides on the apples. These pesticides are linked to damages to the human reproductive system, damages to the brain and nervous system, including decreased intelligence and increased attention problems in children, and damages to the immune system.

*Scrubbing and peeling a fruit doesn't eliminate chemical residue completely so it's best to buy organic when it comes to apples.


52 pesticides and are now considered one of the dirtiest berries on the market.


Vineyards can be sprayed with 35 different pesticides during different growth periods during the season and no amount of washing or peeling will eliminate contamination because of the grape's permeable thin skin.

Peaches & Nectarines:

45 different pesticides are regularly applied to these delicately skinned fruits in conventional orchards.

Strawberries & Cherries

Strawberry plantations average a dose of up to 500 pounds of pesticides per acre.



Celery has no protective skin, which makes it almost impossible to wash off the 29 different chemicals that are used on conventional crops.


Leafy greens are frequently contaminated with the most potent pesticides used on food.

Green Beans

There are over 60 pesticides that are registered for use on green beans in the U.S.


Cucumbers were ranked the 12th most contaminated food and the second in cancer risk due to their pesticide content.

Winter Squash

Winter squash is often contaminated by Dieldrin, a very toxic and carcinogenic insecticide. It still gets absorbed through its roots even though this toxin was banned in 1974.


Root vegetables, such as potatoes, rank highest for pesticide residue. They absorb herbicides, pesticides and fungicides in the soil. Potatoes, for example, are treated with fungicides during the growing season, then sprayed with herbicides to kill off the fibrous vines before harvesting. After they're dug up, the potatoes are treated yet again to prevent them from sprouting.


They have thin skins that don't offer much of a barrier to pesticides.

They are one of the most heavily sprayed vegetables out there and may be coated with nearly 40 commonly used pesticides meant to keep them insect-free.


Their easily punctured skins are no match for chemicals that will eventually permeate the whole tomato.

Also avoid CANNED tomatoes. The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A (BPA) - a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to a variety of health problems, including reproductive problems, heart disease, diabetes and obesity. The primary characteristic of tomatoes are their acidity which draws BPA out of the lining and allows it to leach into the tomatoes.


Do you wake up in the morning & reach for a glass of water or have a cup of coffee or tea?

You could be swallowing down harmful bacteria & bodily toxic waste! During your sleep your body builds up toxic waste in your mouth that need to be expelled immediately on awakening.

Detoxing the body through the mouth…healthier gums, cleans & whitens teeth too!

Dr. F. Karach, M.D., presented a paper before the All-Ukrainian Association. The meeting was attended by oncologists and bacteriologists belonging to the Academy of Science of the USSR. Dr. Karach explained an unusual simple healing process using cold-pressed oils.

The results of this therapy invoked astonishment and doubt concerning the contents of his report. However, after further examining the workings of the oil therapy, one has but to then test it on oneself to prove its validity and effectiveness. It is most astonishing that such results can be achieved with this absolutely harmless biological healing method. This simple method makes it possible to effectively treat the most varied diseases, in some cases enabling one to avoid surgical intervention and the taking of medications that can have harmful side effects.The exciting factor of this healing method is its simplicity. It consists of swishing cold-pressed oil in the mouth (Sunflower or Sesame, Pl. note you don’t need to go for organic oils only, A normal refined sunflower oil bought from any supermarket proven to be effective in many people). The healing process is accomplished by the human organism on its own. In this way it is possible to heal cells, tissue and all organs simultaneously; the body itself gets rid of toxic waste without disturbing the healthy microflora. Dr. Karach says human beings are living only half their life span. They could potentially live healthy to be 140 to 150 years old.[ or more!]

The method Do not swallow the oil, spit it out.
In the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon in the mouth but do not swallow it. Move Oil Slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing and Dr Karach puts it as ‘ sip, suck and pull through the teeth’ for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process makes oil thoroughly mixed with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough.It is then spit from the mouth , the oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and mouth must be washed thoroughly. Just use normal tap water and good old fingers to clean.

Clean the sink properly, you can use some antibacterial soap to clean the sink. Because the spittle contains harmful bacteria and toxic bodily waste. If one were to see one drop of this liquid magnified 600 times under a microscope, one would see microbes in their first stage of development.
It is important to understand that during the oil-pulling/swishing process one’s metabolism is intensified. This leads to improved health. One of the most striking results of this process is the fastening of loose teeth, the elimination of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of the teeth.
The oil pulling /swishing is done best before breakfast. To accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but always before meals on an empty stomach.

(a) Do not swallow. The oil should be spat out. But inadvertently if you swallow there is nothing to worry. It will go out through faeces. Nothing is to be done.
(b) If you are allergic to a particular brand of oil, change the brand of oil or oil itself to different oil.
(c) Sunflower and Sesame oil have been found to be equally effective in curing diseases. Other oils were not found to be as good. Do not blame oil pulling by practicing with other oils. refined oils are OK

Results of Oil Pulling
The result of this healing research has attracted amazement and resulted in further research. This additional research concerning Oil Therapy has now been thoroughly documented, especially with regard to physiological similarities between individuals. It is surprising that through this biological healing method a wide variety of symptoms have unquestionably disappeared without any side-effects. This simple method makes it possible completely heal such a wide variety of diseases which would normally be treated by an operation or by powerful or potent Drugs, usually with significant side-effects.
The simplicity of this healing system in which Oil is swirled backwards and forwards in the mouth, is due to the stimulating effect which it has on the body’s eliminatory system.
Through this method it is possible to heal individual cells, cell conglomerates such as lymph nodes and more complex tissues such as internal organs simultaneously. This occurs because the beneficial microflora throughout the body are provided with a healthy continuum. Without this natural bodily intrusive element evinced by the microflora the usual pattern of human health tends to lean towards illness rather than wellness. Dr. Karach anticipates that regular application of this treatment by reversing this process so that wellness is the dominant state of the human body is likely to increase the average human lifespan to approximately 150 years, double the present life expectancy.
Dr. Karach is supported in this view by other colleagues in the world.
By means of this treatment {Oil } it is invariably the result that diseases like migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and women’s hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism. The benefit of Dr. Karach’s method is that the oil therapy heals the whole body in perpetuity. In terminal diseases such as cancer, Aids and chronic infections this treatment method has been shown to successfully replace all others. Dr. Karach has successfully healed a chronic leukemia patient with 15 years of harsh treatment methods behind him. Acute arthritis in 1 patient who was totally bedridden was removed from his body in 3 days with no inflammation apparent.
NOTE: The recommended oils to use are Sunflower Oil, Seasme Oil. We are receiving many emails about which oil to use. Our experience with thousands of people across the globe says USE COLD PRESSED OIL as first choice, if it is not available use REFINED OIL ( which seems to be effective in the process too). We have observed that any oil other than SUNFLOWER or SEASME may not be effective.

The hidden monster in your kitchen

Why is Non-Stick Cookware so Bad For Your Health?

Non-stick cookware has become enormously popular because of its convenience factor; foods don’t stick to the surface.

However, it has now been shown that once heated – which is bound to happen when cooking – non-stick pans will quickly reach temperatures at which toxic fumes are released.

The coating begins to break down and release toxins into the air.

After about three to five minutes of heating, when the pans reach 35 degrees, they release at least six toxic gasses, including:

* Two carcinogens
* Two global pollutants
* MFA, a chemical deadly to humans at low doses

Also aluminum foil is seriously dangerous as well and it scares me when i see people cook their fish wrapped in this foil that is leaking poisen into their food. Is a reactive metal and suspected casual factor in Alzheimer's disease.

We are ALL atoms vibrating on differant frequencies

Do you think that’s AIR that you’re breathing?

Subjective consciousness…
indestructible energy that is aware or ‘senses’ that it exists.

Your ‘body’ is consciousness vibrating in a repetitious pattern.

The pattern you call your ‘lungs’ is consciousness vibrating in a repetitious pattern.

The patterns we call ‘oxygen molecules’ are consciousness vibrating in repetitious
patterns and on and on.

and ultimately it’s all YOU.

See The Eternal Cycle for more on you.

Why is it empowering to change our mind about what’s really happening here?
To see everything as ‘consciousness’ instead of individual objects and people?

It frees our souls to leave the nest (body) and experience ourselves as multidimensional beings … the next stage in our evolution.

Our time in objective reality and individual forms was only a stepping-stone to develop the intelligence we needed to discover who we are, where we are, and what’s really going on

here, and now it’s time to move on to greater heights of awareness.

Your individual perspective, developed in an objective experience of three-dimensions, has evolved a morphogenetic field or ‘soul’ over countless lifetimes.

This next stage where we can go in and out of our three-dimensional forms does NOT mean we turn into one homogeneous sea of conscious bliss .. that’s about 150 trillion years down the road ( if the Hindus are correct in their counting ) when existence returns completely to it’s simpliest vibrational expression to rest before starting another cycle.
