We Blog Naked

OK did that get your attention? LOL

Well so sometimes I do blog Naked, shock O horror (although I am not nearly as buff as I used to be so don’t peak in the windows..)

After visiting Mexico first then a UN Tour in Cyprus then living in Europe, what is the big deal with Nakedness. If you’re so inclined Sky Clad, in the Buff, As Mother Nature Intended or as in Birthday Clothed, Birthday Suit. Go to the Naturist and Nudist Camps and beaches, all body types, nobody judges you, people get along, they have nothing to hide !

North Americans are so uptight about it that we now have soooo many issues due to something that is natural. Sometimes it is not a mater of being naked just a matter of not getting dressed in a hurry! I tell my dog that I need to put on my fur when she looks at me, too funny.

Now I also blog Naked as I am bearing my Heart and Soul, letting you into my deepest darkest thoughts and fears. I was told that for therapy for PTSD and Depression to be more open, honest and let the deep thoughts and emotions out! Well as evidenced by some of my blog posts in the last little while, I have done just that.

Some say good going, some criticize, some question, some just come and read then leave. Now since I started doing this Naked blogging of the Soul and Spirit, let alone the buff posts, I am much more calm than I was before. For a couple of weeks though, I was pouring out emotions, emotions dripped from my eyes at the slightest thing.

Sometimes Ladies you do not understand that we were told from a young age to close those doors to emotions, put them aside, hide them, lock the door and throw away the key. Too bad, that is why we die earlier I think, plus some other things that I will not get into here, right now. When I opened the doors it was like opening up the huge Barn Doors and everything came out at once, I was overwhelmed overcome by these new flood gates or another way of expressing it would be the Tsunami of emotions that poured out onto everything! Shocking

Recommendation for Chef and Nutritionist Rhoni Speed

Recommendation for Chef and Nutritionist Rhoni Speed This past weekend i was treated to the delightful tastes, smells and presentations of several of Chef and Nutritionist Rhoni Speed culinary arts. Recipes that would have required me to look and measure diligently were whipped out from the top of her head with apparent ease as well as flexibility.

raw organic foods

Chef Rhoni inquired on my allergies, medical history as well as food likes and dislikes to come up with some wondrously tasty meals. All meals were Vegan, so no animal products or dairy of any kind. As I am allergic to Milk some of the delightful tastes and food alternatives were designed to replace foods that I had not been able to eat for at least 4-5 yrs. Cheese, now how do you make Cheese without diary?

Chef Rhoni the specialists whipped up cheese from scratch from some sprouted things and nuts and well just ask her yourself. The taste, well the only thing I can say is WOW, what a taste and delight for the tongue and senses. Chef Rhoni also had the forethought to make two batches of a Pepper flavoured cheese, one the day before so some was in a hardened state and one was in a softer spread state. Although identical the different states of the cheese had different tastes and textures to the palate.

There was also a lovely Pesto flavoured cheese, now since I love the taste of Pesto as well, though it always has dairy in it when store bought, this was yet again another taste sensation from years ago. Freshly cut organic celery as well as home made Chia Bread/crackers were made in a special dehydrator. The celery and Chia crackers upon which we spread the yummy cheeses had wonderful flavours of their own.

Peeking into the Fridge you see many bottles and saucers and other containers, looking into this fridge is definitely not like looking into a Store bought, mass produced, pre processed food fridge, not at all.

Dinnertime was much earlier than I was used to as it was at about 530 ish, while my normal Dinner time is 7-8 pm. This is an important comment as I was wondering about being hungry later in the evening as sometimes with the processed foods which are nutritionally lower, I am sometimes hungry even in as little as an hour later. Well I can honestly say the quality of the foods kept me full right through to Breakfast time, which was also later than my normal timing.

Breakfast was another exploration into the realm of taste, textures and sensations for the palate to savour and enjoy! I will not go into it except to say that everything was made from scratch using organic, raw and ultra healthy food as well as food combinations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you wish to know what the ingredients were, contact Chef Rhoni for a more detailed menu and consultation.

As a closing note, most meals that I prepare for myself seem bland in taste and colour compared to the meals that Chef Rhoni whipped up with ease and confidence. I whole heartedly recommend her for Nutritional Consultation, for food preparation as well as food gathering as part of your journey to wellness and a return to Food Health.

Rated 110% out of 100%

The additional 10% was a surprise as her 7 1/2 yr old Son seems to be a Chef in training, full of information as well as food knowledge and skill. It is not often you see an almost 8 yr old boy make a Lunch from Scratch, whole preparation out of the fridge and cupboards with ease and eagerness.

As it was his idea to make the Wholesome and Yummy Lunch I watched closely and was impressed when he asked only two questions for clarification of his Chef Mother, then asked me a question on clarification on which added foods I liked (we both love Avocados).

Nice touch and impressive so when the Chef asks you food allergies as well as what types of food you like then follows up with medical history questions, answer honestly and you will get healthy meals designed to taste great and work for your body towards a healthy food healing result.

Diet got if figured out right?

So, today I was thinking about the Juice Diet, then read the comments by Anita, Hmmmm

Thoughts led me this way and that way then to the store for prices, more hmmm then hmmmpf..

Juicer, Vegan? Paleo? Raw, Lacto Vegan? What’s the best way of eating?

The cost the waste of the pulp and peals, then searching for a Juicer Machine!
Came across some info then searched for more info on types of juicers, vs Magic Bullet vs Hamilton Beach, vs Ninja Food Prep, looked into Kijiji.ca for new and or used machines!

How about adding in there SHFT diets from Canadian Pepper’s forum, damn damn damn… How about adding in Natural Wild Edibles (ok, that was easiest thought actually) need to learn which do which and similar and complimentary tastes, then no worries, beyond identification, location, picking and harvesting. so

Bam..  … So friggin confuzled!

So, mostly Smoothies I have decided, it is so similar to the Juice Diet with all the benefits of the pulps and seeds, that will be mostly my way I think. Both WalMart and Canadian Tire are selling the Ninja Food Preps for $40 this week. The reviews and comments as well as Consumer reports rates the Ninja way above the Bullet for this type of thing. The Hamilton Beach Single serve although cheap at $15 just can not stand up to the torture juicing and smoothies put it through. It has its place with less hard items and the price is great, but for the little bit more, I think it is the Ninja for me.

Now the Ninja comes in two varieties for the ones I am looking at them online;

Ninja Frozen Treat and Drink Maker ->

Ninja Master Prep Food Processor – v

 

 

the Frozen Ninja = 400 watts

The Prep Ninja
= 450 watts and more bases

hhmm what to do, really I do not need a food processor  though I think it looks a bit sturdier than the Frozen Treat version.  Will go and check it out in person then make up my mind. PS.. kijiji.ca almost all of the Bullets where priced as high as buying new, though there were a few cheaper ones. Juicers same thing though better savings there, but do I really want to waste all that yummy goodness? NO..

So, smoothies and thicker juices for me, it is all per the person and per the body really.

The cost of the food, so I will have to do what I hate and go shopping, more than one store! Yukkers.. Almost perfect has some good deals on larger frozen fruits and veggies, good deal there, Price Chopper is cheaper than Food Basics so shop there, they are all cheaper than Sobies! WalMart will need to look at prices there as well, make a list, check it twice gonna find out who is Naughty and who is Cheaper, O so NICE!

– (cause me likes fish and eggs, honey and turkey, so sue me, plus the smoked turkey, or hamburger, sigh…)
or. Ovo-lacto vegetarianism it is all so confusing..

plus a host of other sites today including recipes, Yummy Mommy (love that title), Paleo Diet plus about 40 reviews of the different systems, juicers, blenders, bullets, and on and on and on… my head is mush, kinda like my diet will be by the end of the week, he he..
