The Cancer Crushing Pineapple Stem! (aka the seed)

Two molecules isolated from an extract of crushed pineapple stems have shown promise in fighting cancer growth. One molecule called CCS blocks a protein called Ras, which is defective in approximately 30% of all cancers. The other, called CCZ, stimulates the body's own immune system to target and kill cancer cells.It is hoped the research, carried out by Queensland Institute of Medical Research, could lead to new anti-cancer drugs.The origin of many anti-cancer drugs can be found in nature The extract studied by the scientists, bromelain, is a rich source of enzymes and is widely used as a meat tenderiser, to clarify beer and tan leather hides.The Queensland team discovered that the extract also had pharmacological properties and could activate specific immune cells while, simultaneously, blocking the immune function of other cells.

#1 Vitamix Almond Milk Recipe

Home made fresh raw almond milk is Raw, Live, Creamy, Frothy, Healthy, and has no additives or preservatives like most processed nut milks. It is a little piece of nutty heaven -- sweet, mild, and more gentle on the digestive system than heavily processed milks. It is fantastic to drink, put it on cereals, use in smoothies and shakes, and in cakes. I just can't get enough of it.

Organic Tomato & Basil Detox Soup

My Vitamix is busier than ever these days! As much as I love raw soups, I don't really like them cold, especially in the wintertime. What I usually do is warm them gently on the stove, stirring constantly so as not to overheat (and therefore kill) the enzymes. An alternative would be to pop your soup in the D, although the stove method is what works best for me.

Organic Southwest Tortilla Soup Vitamix Style

I love soups and bone broths because they’re an easy way to get in a lot of vegetables and high quality nutrients into your system FAST, and they are usually awesome leftover (whether they’ve been in the fridge or freezer). I am a huge fan of serving easy dinners on busy weeknights and there is nothing easier than defrosting some soup out of your very own freezer. I especially love this soup because it comes with so many “accessories.” You could certainly eat it plain but it is amazing how the flavor suddenly changes when you pile avocado, grated cheese, sour cream, and cilantro on top. We even sometimes toast tortillas (to make them crunchy like chips) and throw them in the mix as well.

Gone in 90 Seconds!

What if a brief exercise of 90 seconds, made it less likely that this dessert would get stored as body fat? That is exactly one of the things Tim Ferriss explores in The 4-Hour Body. Brief Muscular Contractions a Few Minutes Before You Eat? So most of you probably know that after an intense workout, food calories are less likely to get stored as body fat. A simplistic explanation is that your muscles are depleted of glycogen and that a lot of the calories you eat at this time simply serve to refuel these depleted muscles. What I did not know was how little the stimulus needs to be in order for this to happen. Tim has found that this effect can happen in as little as 60-90 seconds. The proper activity done a few minutes before eating can encourage food calories to get shuttled into the muscle cells, before it has a chance to get stored as body fat.

Chocolate Cherry Green Machine

I’m all about great tasting smoothies in my life. Smoothies with a spoon are the way to go. But the best way to thicken a smoothie? Avocado! I love adding avocado not just because of it’s consistency but also its added nutritional benefit. Avocados are a fantastic source of monounsaturated “good” fat (helps lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol), potassium, folate and fibre.

The Veggie Julius!

The Smoothie that tastes like a desert, but delivers like a meal. Being bold and extra green on your first smoothie attempt will not win new green smoothie lovers. Baby steps are the key to making a smooth transition to developing a taste for greens in your child’s smoothie. So make those first few smoothies creamy with a lot of fruit and just a hint of green veggies. Then with each smoothie you serve, add a little less fruit and a little more green leaves. Also a little less juice and milk and a lot more filtered water. Your goal is to pack in your child’s daily needs for green vegetables.
