Fruit Plate Breakfast and the 9 Cup Diet for Health and Healing!

Breakfast today was 1/2 apple, 1/2 banana, 8 strawberries, and 2 tablespoons of blueberries.  It was 3 cups for each of us!
Yesterday I happened to come across the most fascinating dialog about the part mitochondria plays in healing and brain and cell function.  I had heard our boys speak of mitochondria but not payed a lot of attention.  That is until yesterday!

What I happened across was a video made by a female doctor, Terry Wahls.  She had been a champion Martial arts competitor in her youth, studied hard and become a doctor, married, had 2 children, and was then stricken with MS.  She took all of the conventional and latest treatments but still wound up in a wheel chair with a less then optimum prognosis.

She started studying and after all sorts of research and consultations felt the answer was in the way we now eat versus the more natural way we ate as hunter gatherers and the various cultures that reflect this same happenstance.

She called it a "Hunter Gatherer Diet" and attributes many improvements and her healing to this.  Her video was found on and it is titled "Minding Your Mitochondria".

Basically the elements of this way of eating are:   3 C. green leafy vegetables @ day,  3 C. sulfurous vegetables @ day (cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, leeks, onions, garlic, asparagus, and mushrooms),  3 C. brightly colored fruits and vegetables @ day.   This totals 9 cups of fruits and vegetables a day!  In addition organ meats once a week, sea weed once a week, and high quality protein like wild caught fish and grass fed meats and poultry should be added.  So we are going to sort of try to steer this direction and see if we feel better.

I told Brian after 9 cups of fruits and vegetables a day you would be too full for much else!  We shall see.....

DOCTOR TERRY WAHLS  is no longer in a wheelchair and is back practicing medicine.   She attributed her healing to the effects of this way of eating.
