HOW TO HAVE HIGH ENERGY FAST and CONTINUAL ENERGY. THE SECRET OF FOOD COMBINING CAREFULLY and an Afternoon Cup of tea as a mini stim.
Ever find yourself being DIZZY, sleepy? OUT OF IT? Breakfast seems too heavy? Or does this fatigue hit after lunch? Or maybe it comes as sunset FATIGUE because after any meal, work does seem harder, obstacles larger and if you try to do physical work, sometimes depression is able to creep in.
That feeling of a blue/black bruised shadow over your heart chakra can hit after lunch to sunset, and if you start ideating, considering, thinking "OUT" of that HOLE, you get into hopelessness and permanent negative ideas can root in your psyche. So daily try to move the bruised aura off, to clean ... and to keep mind focused on some kind of work.. But if your hand moves slowly if your body is lethargic, seek out the causes and root them out.
The reason the BRUISE hits after meals is, you're digesting a mixture of incompatible items. Always FOOD COMBINE PROPERLY especially midday and then meals don't slow you down. COMBINING means group your foods and eat them in solo or with their compatabiles.PROTEINS go with greens. Morning egg? Add watercress, very subtly on plate. People will eat it oddly enough and get this new habit and get huge increase in energy!If you want a bigger breakfast, do it in stages. FRUIT FIRST then a half hour later, you can have either protein or starch foods. Choose one or the other. Try slipping in the cress without pushing it.
STARCHES also go with GREENS. Morning Toast? Well, it is possible that they'd eat the cress but maybe you don't want greens with breakfast, so TOAST you should eat alone or with your hot morning beverage. But don't mix fruit, cereal, eggs, milk, sugar, jam, bacon all in one meal. NEVER! That would sink the TITANIC!
Remember, PROTEINS do not combine with sugars or starches. You digest proteins with stomach acid. SMELLING THE MEAL cooking is the way to develop acid, and with it, the ability to stay 'light' after proteins. You develop ACID when you smell proteins cooking. In England where the kitchen's on another floor….they use bitters before a meal to develop the acid. Bitter greens like endive or cress hidden in a romaine salad will do that. So take your bitters with your viand!
AVOID putting potatoes, noodles, starches, bread next to meat. STARCH is digested by alkaline saliva, has no place in a tummy doin' an acid thing. Neither digests well. Meat refuses to digest with all that starchy crud, and that damages your kidneys. Also, blood is stuck in the tummy area for such a long time that your brain suffocates. GET THE PICTURE?
SUGAR or fruits will ferment any starch, so don't combine these. FRUITY SLUSH turns nasty in the bowel, and you'll regret it the next day so use SUGAR FREE JAM on toast, in extreme moderation. FATS surround starch molecule so well that no saliva can digest the starch, hence go real skinny on butter when you eat starches.
Last, NEVER eat a dessert with a meal. WAIT until meal is digested. 3 hrs if possible. Since sugary desserts cause HIGH BLOOD sugar, followed 4 hrs. later by MAJOR LOW BLOODSUGAR, dessert would cause you to awake at 3 a.m. and toss and turn. A pc of cheese will put you right, then rinse mouth, go back to sleep. Better is NOT TO EAT dessert at night, but 3 hrs after LUNCH maybe! So the 4 pm tea and pie really does work. It makes you starving for dinner at 7 pm.
PROTEIN in a starch meal will not digest. UNDIGESTED protein insults your kidneys (damages them) and will cause you to have a puffy face. ALL geriatrics look the same. Shepherd's PIE face. It's kidney failure starting….
NOW, just those food combining tricks should solve the problem and solve that groggy head syndrome. A basic healthfood diet with food combining will give changes in energy. But here's another little change you can do. Cease drinking toxic stimulants like coffee, cokes. Coffee gives pancreatic cancer. It actually collects on pancreas as a black spot, visible in the eye. And quit DIET cokes as aspartame produces multiple sclerosis (ask me for files on Neutrasweet). Instead, HAVE A YOGI TEA BREAK. Tea is good stuff. The smart Brits conquered the whole back end of the world to get at this fragrant leaf with its gentle kick. Here's a way to smooth out the caffeine in tea so you can sleep at night. I am going to give you a magic tea recipe that will not prevent you from sleeping but which will give you energy when required. Try this terrific recipe.YOGI BHAJAN's "YOGI TEA" FAMOUS PARTY POT SIZE RECIPEREQ'D. ONE ENAMEL POT TO BOIL IT IN, or stainless steel. NO ALUMINUM, teflon should be next to any food. GLASS is good, pyrex, but I don't know if they come that large. ONE 1/2 gallon GLASS JAR, for fridge storage, with lid. SMALL jars for carrying to work. (or thermos, but don't carry MILK in a hot condition ever!).
3 1/2 gallon water
1/2 cup cardamom pods (cheap at Indian market!) crush each a little twixt fingertips.
1/3 cup whole cloves
1/2 lb. ginger root, thinly sliced
15 cinnamon sticks
two tsps black pepper corms.
4 black tea bags
1 gallon milk
Bring water to boil in a 5 gallon pot. Add cloves, pepper corms and let dance for a minute. Add cardamom, cloves, PEELED ginger and stick cinnamon. Cover and simmer gently for at least 45 minutes. Add black tea bags or dump tea leaves out of bags, so no paper flavor in the tea. And add the milk. Bring to boiling point and immediately remove from heat. Allow to stand, unstrained, until almost time to serve, (this will increase potency of tea and most spices will settle to the bottom). Strain into another, similar size stainless steel glass or porcelain pot. Sweeten with honey or maple syrup if desired. EXCESS TEA goes in glass jar in fridge, covered. Or Leave the pot on the stove, ladle near by, heat up occasionally during the evening. Heat up a quart for the table, with lovely tea cups. Once people taste it, everyone will wander in to kitchen, serve themselves a second and
third cup. Beats any other party drink! Carminative in winter, means dilates veins, warming you. Pinking our cheeks. Making us feel happy.
Serve with BISCOTTI COOKIES, UNFORGETTABLE
CARRY Yogi Tea COLD in your thermos. HEAT as needed. In about ten years someone will invent a thermos that chills drinks but heats the stuff inside when you're ready to drink or eat it. MAKE A FORTUNE!! Probably it will come from Japan or Taiwan. Operate like a ricecooker with solar batteries maybe. Maybe a plug in dealie, though. Invent it, become a millionaire!
WARNING: Inordinate tea drinking (just like coffee, cokes) can wash away potassium, magnesium. If you're urinating too much on this buffered tea, you will note your bones are melting out into the ocean and will probably have to supplement minerals. Liquid Potassium is the only safe way to get Potassium as the tablets don't break down. ONE OTHER WAY: celery/greens juice made on a juicer, fresh and raw. Practically every mineral imaginable is in raw vegie juice.
If you're not doing raw juices, some people go for the MAIN MINERALS thru supplements. They take Cal/Mag/Pos. Magnesium affects heart strength. Potassium is muscle strength, Calcium is strong bones. Vit D is required for assimilation. Cal/Mag/Potas/D tablets are cheap and easily available but calcium and magnesium can end up in your veins as plaque so it's better to use high mag beets as salad,hot buttered vegies or borscht and all other vegies are high cal. There are other trace minerals avail in "MINERAL FORMULA'. You can even try alfalfa, seaweed tablets and do it that way. Natural leaves. Reason CALCIUM settles in veins as plaque is... it is INORGANIC unless grown in leaves. It is a mineral, did you know that? It needs other factors with it to be absorbed, though. Try Magnesium mixed with calcium and Vit D, a sure absorption formula. Many arthritis sufferers start Cal/Mag and get quick and permanent relief just from that!
You may not have heart or bone problems now, but coffee/ soda tea drinkers will get them down the line. BEST is to use raw juices, have a juicer at work, carry bags of carrots, celery, parsley, a small slice of beet… to work and juice something right in the office. Juicers are easy to clean. Too much fuss is made about cleaning a damn juicer. You lift out the ring of crudded vegies, slop it in a wastebasket, rinse all metal parts in the sink soap it well, then leave all parts upside down to air dry. (I carefully carry the vegie pith to yard for the compost pile.) But carrots, celery, greens, even the pith, can be simmered with the turkey burger and fed to dogs and cats.
