I’ve always wondered why it took me so long to find out about GMOs and other food evils. I wondered why there was hardly any TV or news coverage about two million people world-wide marching against Monsanto. I think this is the answer. The Monsanto Corporation buys so much advertising for Aspartame and Round Up, that they literally control much of the media. These reporters were fired for trying to bring to light the dangers of milk with rBGH.
Most store bought almond milk contains a controversial ingredient, Carrageenan. According to the report by the Cornucopia Institute, Carrageenan may be to blame for increased gastrointestinal problems. What is more disturbing, this controversial ingredient is in organic food.
Here is a good recipe that I got from Natalia Rose’s Fresh Energy Cookbook.
Soak 1 cup of almonds overnight. Drain in the morning.
Add 4 cups of water and blend in a blender. Get it as fine as you can.
Strain through a cheesecloth.
It is delicious!!
1 large spaghetti squash
Garlic clove minced
A handful of Kale (or 2 stalks) and or spinach, torn
Half of a Yellow or orange pepper chopped coarsely
3-4 kalamata olives chopped
A small handful of sundried tomato (not packed in oil)
3-4 artichoke hearts chopped
Cook spaghetti squash according to directions on the sticker on the squash. I usually cut the squash in half, take out the seeds and bake it in the oven at 400 degrees until the center peels out like spaghetti strips; 20-40 minutes depending on the size of the squash.
Let the squash cool a bit. Scoop out the insides with a fork. It will look like spaghetti.
Saute garlic water, add the rest of the ingredients, cook until tender but not mushy. Add the spaghetti squash and Nicki’s Secret Marinara to the pan, mix and serve.

Our food system is so corrupt and morally bankrupt that it compromises our health daily by putting profits ahead of our best interests. Even if you do not suffer from health problems currently, you can guard against premature aging and future health risks by eating healthfully. It’s not easy because nothing is what is seems or claims to be when it comes to what you eat. Continue reading “Baby Steps to Health”
