"Eliminating Processed Foods", Article by Matt Monarch

The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.   In the past I have received countless emails from people complaining that there are "TOO MANY" conflicting views about how to eat raw or simply eat more healthily. One person even said that due to all of these conflicting views they were going to stay overweight and just stick to their current diet of eating processed foods!   Please note: this article is based on anecdotal information and personal experience...   I understand!!! There are indeed so MANY conflicting views within the raw foods and health movement. Some people are screaming to eat a low-fat raw diet, others insist that a high-fat raw diet is the key. Some say we need animal protein and others are saying that an 80% raw vegan diet is the ideal intake for humans. Yet from my perspective, the existence of all of these conflicting views ought not provide a reason to not embark on a healthier lifestyle at all. I would suggest instead to simply make the dietary improvements that ALL of these people with conflicting views can agree upon...   The ONE COMMON DENOMINATOR that practically ALL health advocates can agree on is to simply eliminate processed foods. Eliminating processed foods is the first step and once you take that step you can then go on to find out which of all of these conflicting views seems to work for you. Eliminating processed foods is the golden KEY to health and avoiding degenerative disease in the long-run.   Some of you may not be clear about exactly what we mean by "processed foods"...   Here are some general ideas: Don't buy anything that comes in a box, tin, can, carton or any other kind of packaging from the "middle aisles". Buy products that come straight from the Earth - these are "whole foods". Don't buy things containing chemical ingredients that you can't even pronounce. Refined sugars and processed starches are some of the most damaging foods to the human body - it is key to avoid these items. A list of example damaging processed foods might include:  
  • Refined Sugars/Sweeteners - e.g. white sugar, high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, standard cakes, cookies, candy, ice cream, bakery items
  • Processed Starches - e.g. practically every kind of BREAD, pasta, cereal, pizzas, bakery items - gluten-containing grains are especially damaging
  • Trans-fatty acids, greasy foods
  • Pasteurised mainstream cows' products
  • Red meat
  • Ingredients you can't pronounce - e.g. stabilisers, preservatives, random chemical excitotoxin names
  • GMOs (Genetically Modified Foods)
  • Fast Food In contrast, I feel that the ideal situation is to be getting our whole foods directly from the Earth! Here are some more "acceptable" foods for someone embarking on a "whole foods diet" and eliminating processed foods:
  • Whole food sweeteners such as honey, dried fruits, fresh fruits, stevia powder
  • Gluten-free grains/starches such as quinoa, millet, buckwheat, gluten-free pastas, brown rice, baked potatoes, lentils
  • Free-range chicken, fish, eggs and turkey (Note: I am not an advocate for eating animal protein and I personally don't eat it.)
  • Raw vegan foods - e.g. fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, oils, seaweeds, algaes
  • Raw goat's milk/milk products
  • Steamed vegetablesSo don't worry about all those conflicting views!... Just eliminate processed foods and that alone can make a WORLD of difference! Then take it from there! :-) AND!!!... if you want to hear the experts GO AT IT about all the choics that might follow after eliminating processed foods, then click HERE for 'The Great Health Debate'! ;-)

     

    New Products at The Raw Food World

     

    Ginseng and Astragalus Combination - Dragon Herbs We are LOVING Ron Teeguarden's Dragon Herbs!!! Their product line keeps E X P A N D I N G in our store. Their Ginseng and Astragalus Combination is the premier classical energy tonic of Chinese tonic herbalism. It is classically said to promote the production and circulation of Qi, strengthen the digestive system and improve nutrient assimilation, fortify the immune system, to improve posture and the position of the organs, and as an excellent blood tonic. It is used as a tonic by anyone wishing to tonify or maintain a high level of Qi, and especially by those who are recovering from a chronic or acute illness or surgery. ProAlgaZyme ProAlgaZyme is a VERY SPECIAL new product, which many high profile nutritional companies use in their high potent liquid supplements. I actually LOVE the idea of this product. If I wasn't living in Ecuador and had easy access to it, I would be drinking ProAlgaZyme regularly. This product is made in a base of distilled water, which means it is free of all inorganic minerals and other harmful toxins. This distilled water is placed in huge tanks full of freshwater algae! The algae then process this clean distilled water, which purifies it on a nano-size particle level and structures the water to ideally meet our bodies' needs. It's PLANT-BASED water in a bottle! (The following statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.) The clinical study results for ProAlgaZyme are quite profound. I have heard that those who wish to support a healthy inflammation response, cardiovascular health, and healthy blood pressure levels may benefit from the support of ProAlgaZyme. I learned a lot about this product from Mike Adams (The Health Ranger's) website NaturalNews.com. Living Libations Healthy Gum Drops EVERYONE is LOVING the Living Libations products! Their Yogi Tooth Serum has been FLYING off the shelves so we decided to add two more of their amazing products. First up we have their equally popular "Healthy Gum Drops" - potent essential oils of seabuckthorn berry, rose, oregano, peppermint, cinnamon, clove, tea tree, and thyme linalool create an effective anti-bacterial, anti-fungal anoint for all aspects of oral care. Add one drop to toothbrush, salt mouth rinse, massage into gums and glide a drop over dental floss to cleanse the tiny spaces in between the teeth. Each one of the botanical species in this formula is carefully selected by Nadine Artemis for their individual and synergistic effects that improve and maintain gum and oral health. The combination of antiseptic, astringent, circulatory and analgesic botanicals create optimal molecular activity. Happy, healthy teeth and gums allow the full enjoyment of life's sensuality! Living Libations Poetic Pits (Roller Bottle), 5mL Pure sandalwood is the potent sorcerer of this deodorant accented with elegant essences; this underarm charm works for days! Your body is the fragrant terrain to fuse this poetic-plant life. Pure sandalwood is the potent purity of this poetic pits, plus the pleasing-tree of Douglas Fir and a dash of cardamom. One stroke is a blessing until the next bath or shower. One whiff of this underarm charm is sure to please! Beautiful sublime deodorant to emanate the fragrant glow of your pits! Ingredients: Pure, Organic, Undiluted Sandalwood, Cardamom, and Douglas Fir. Medicine Flower Sacred Sage Mist A synergistic blend of traditional purifying herbs made with hand-picked, wild, and organically grown White Sage are combined together in a convenient mist. The smoke of White Sage and Cedar have been used for thousands of years to purify living areas, ceremonial spaces and healing rooms. Now those same essences can be brought into any space conveniently through this wonderful mist. A happy customer tells us: "I have used this in my home, my car and at my therapy practice and it is just wonderful. Clients love it and I find it to be very mood enhancing. It is ideal for spaces in which using white sage smoke may be less appropriate. I highly recommend it." Here are all the latest new additions to The Raw Food World Store:
  • Ginseng and Astragalus Combination - Dragon Herbs
  • ProAlgaZyme, 32oz.
  • Healthy Gum Drops - Living Libations
  • Poetic Pits - Living Libations
  • Sacred Sage Mist - Medicine Flower
  • DVD Breaking the Food SeductionDVD Breaking the Food Seduction Whether it's chocolate chip cookies, potato chips, baked Brie, or burgers, everyone has foods they can't seem to resist - foods that sabotage our efforts to lose weight and improve our health. As leading health researcher Dr. Neal Barnard explains, banishing these cravings is not a question of willpower - it's a matter of biochemistry. "Breaking the Food Seduction" reveals the simple diet and lifestyle changes that will break craving cycles forever. With everyday examples and practical tips this DVD delivers:
  • New facts about the opiate-like effects of problem foods
  • Seven simple steps to break craving cycles
  • A three-week kickstart program
  • 100 easy, satisfying recipes.AAAAAAAAND... Many More New Products COMING SOON!!!

     

    January 2011 'At-Cost' Specials

     

    Remember that you NOW have the opportunity to always get 13% Off the 'At-Cost' specials by joining 'The Raw Food World Benefits Program' - just click HERE. This month I aimed to base the 'At-Cost' specials on the most POTENT and BENEFICIAL "micronutrient" foods available on the planet. As stated in the article HERE, "micronutrient foods" contain bio-available and easy-to-digest nutrients, which helps us to avoid deficiency. We are offering two of the most POWERFUL foods on the planet 'At-Cost' this month! If I had to choose TWO foods to live on for the rest of my life, they would be Royal Jelly and Pine Pollen. Not only do these foods practically have everything the body needs, they also have more LIFEFORCE than any other food I have ever experienced! If you missed the article & video of the nutritional breakdown of Pine Pollen, you've got to check it out HERE! If someone were to offer me a fresh green vegetable juice or 2 teaspoons of Fresh Royal Jelly or Pine Pollen Powder, I would take the Royal Jelly or Pine Pollen in an instant! Royal Jelly is SO POWERFUL!!! If you have ever consumed Royal Jelly before, you know how POTENT it feels. It is the food that the Queen Bee lives on exclusively and you can easily sense the extreme potency of it: it tastes ALIVE and strong. It's like you can feel the enzymes within this food. Most people report getting a HIGH and feeling a massive amount of energy after consuming Fresh Royal Jelly - 'buzzzz' without stimulation. When I take Royal Jelly, I feel 'high', warmth covers my body and I can sense more atunement with spiritual energy throughout the entire day... especially at night. Unlike honey, Royal Jelly is low glycemic and safe for people who have sugar issues. In this 2 1/2 minute video below, David Wolfe clearly states that Fresh Royal Jelly is THE MOST POWERFUL longevity food in the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqJdmeTfo2s Steve Schechter, M.D said "Royal Jelly is an excellent source of nutrients and is gentle to the system". Scientists discovered that Royal Jelly is a very rich source of proteins and contains eight amino acids, important fatty acids, lipids, glucides, sterols, phosphorous components as well as acetylcholine and specific vital factors that act as biocatalysts in cell regeneration processes within the human body. While acetylcholine is needed to transmit nerve messages from all cells. It also contains vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E, niacin, biotin, inositol, folic acid and pantothenic acid, recognized for its ability to reduce stress levels. It also supplies the minerals calcium, iron, potassium, copper, silicon and sulfur. Many years ago Fresh Royal Jelly gained MASSIVE POPULARITY for being one of those "MIRACLE" health foods on the market. I believe that it lost its popularity after a while mainly due to the fact that it can seem "expensive", so I believe that this month's Special Offer will help with this situation. The NEXT two discounted "micronutrient" foods that we have available are absorbable GREEN foods! Sun Warrior gave us a one-time discount for this promotion and gave us permission to offer their Ormus Greens at a very special low price :-) When you consume Ormus Greens, you can literally feel the energy and power of this product. In the video that we did HERE, you will see how Ormus Greens is ELEcTrIcAlLy CHARGED. This green food STANDS UP like hairs on end. We are also offering our ever-popular Chlorella Tablets on special this month, which surely need NO introduction... NEXT!!!... let's dose up on Omega Fatty Acids. Most of us know that the hardest Omega Essential Fatty Acid to obtain is Omega 3. Sacha Inchi Oil naturally contains 45% Omega-3 and it tastes AMAZING! From what I have heard, Sacha Inchi Oil contains the highest Omega-3 concentration of any food on the planet. Sacha Inchi Oil also has Omega-6s AND Omega-9s. It is high in protein, and rich in essential and non-essential amino acids that are important for good health. Sacha Inchi Oil contains no cholesterol, and the Omega 3, 6 and 9s contained in this oil actually have the potential to lower HDL cholesterol levels. Don't worry about any digestive discomfort either, as Sacha Inchi Oil is highly digestible (96%), and does not cause nearly as much gas or irritation as some other oils can. OF COURSE, we need to add Vitamin C to this "micronutrient" regimen. Vitamin C is not produced in the body on its own, so we need to get it from external sources. Vitamin C is crucial for the repair of our connective tissues. We are offering Camu Powder, which literally has the HIGHEST Vitamin C content known, as of now. Camu Camu contains from 30 to 60 times more vitamin c than an orange, weight-for-weight! The Camu powder is a definite "micronutrient" food, easily and readily absorbable while barely taxing the digestive system. To top off the micronutrient selcections, we have our TOP TEN Angstrom Minerals all available 'At-Cost'. This is a GREAT way to target specific minerals that the body requires. As many of you know, I feel that Zinc is the most important Angstrom Mineral to take. Zinc is used in practically every process by the human body and it is one of those minerals that can be hard to get. Zinc is available in pumpkin seeds and other foods, but as so few of us chew our food thoroughly these days, we rarely unlock the full potential of nutrients available. Taking Angstrom Minerals will help the body to attract more of the required minerals. LAST but not LEAST, we have the Everything Raw Bars! These Raw Chocolate Bars have medicinal herbs in them. They taste amazing and it's a great way to bring these herbs into your body. We have all four flavors available 'Below-Cost'. The pricing is EXTREMELY low on these bars for this special. They are BRAND NEW, just made and extremely FRESH! We just ordered them on December 29th, a few days ago! The following specials are available until January 31st... January 'At-Cost' Specials

    Matt Monarch Interviews Daniel Vitalis

    On Wednesday January 26th at 11am Pacific time, I am going to be interviewing Daniel Vitalis! As many of you know, Daniel Vitalis supports a diet that includes animal protein. Daniel experimented with a raw food diet for about a decade and feels it didn't work for him. He felt that his immune system and nervous system were collapsing. He feels that everyone needs DHA, B12, and Cholesterol, which he says are only found in animal protein. He says that the supposed issues around Cholesterol are myths and that in fact Cholesterol is KEY for producing hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. We are going to dig DEEP into these concepts! I personally have been eating totally Raw Vegan for 13 years and I am still feeling really GREAT! I know of others too who have eaten Raw Vegan for multiple decades. This is going to be a GREAT DISCUSSION! Please don't misunderstand me here, Daniel and I are GREAT friends and this interview will be handled with PURE LOVE! This interview is surely going to go over the hour mark and the ideas above will just be a portion of this EXCITING interview with Daniel Vitalis. This is how this "Radio Show" interview will work: ANYONE can call in and listen to the interview LIVE at 11am Pacific time on January 26th. However, if you miss the live version of the interview, the only place that the playback will be available is in the new 'TRFW Benefits' program. You can sign up for this service anytime by clicking HERE!
