Dietary Habits affect all aspects of health - physical, mental, emotional, spiritual

Sheryl McGlochlin - Monday, April 21, 2014


Dietary Habits:  Foods affect all aspects of health; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual

Building foods:  Concentrate your diet with these foods to heal from serious diseases or for more energy. If raw foods give you gas, either steam them or cook them.  Use these foods as your main staple. 

  • Organic Foods
  • Vegetables
  • Raw Foods
  • Fresh, ripe fruits
  • Green foods
  • Raw seeds, raw nuts

Maintaining foods:  These generally don’t particularly improve your health.  Use them in moderation. 

  • Breads (use whole grains)
  • Cooked foods (they provide few or no enzymes)
  • Spicy foods (they may affect digestion)
  • Meats (use sparingly)
  • Legumes (they can produce gas)
  • Dairy (poorly absorbed, mucus forming, can cause lactose problems)
  • Some frozen foods (they offer few or no enzymes)

Foods to eliminate for allergies are: 

  • Wheat - some people require gluten-free
  • Dairy
  • Sweets
  • Soda Pop

Destructive foods:  These can contribute to disease!  

  • Tobacco (very hard on your health and your wallet)
  • Alcohol (emotional escape, source of sugar)
  • Fast foods (very little nutrition and high cost)
  • Over the counter drugs (more drugs, less health)
  • Prescription drugs (improve your health with the building foods)
  • Recreational drugs (is this your emotional escape?)
  • Peanut Butter (most brands are rancid)
  • Processed foods (contain lots of preservatives)
  • Stimulants (the more you use, the less energy you have)
  • Pork (poorly digested, lots of uric acid)
  • Sugar (may be a hormonal problem, contributes to osteoporosis)
  • Soda Pop (contributes to osteoporosis)
  • Margarine (it is a trans fatty acid, use butter instead)
  • Canned foods (very little food value and no enzymes)
  • Coffee (very acidic and may contribute to gout or kidney problems)
  • Fried foods (toxic and may impair memory and concentration)

The progress a few people can make in a garden

Sheryl McGlochlin - Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I could write about MANY people who should be in this blog post but I'll feature just a few right now.  I hope to be featuring a LOT more of our members in the coming months.

 

Lorelle and Carol,

both seniors and hard workers, last Monday night, laid down 6 rows of black plastic in our 3 foot wide rows in 2 hours.  Each row was 66 feet long.  That's a lot of black plastic.  Once it was laid down, they cover part of it with soil and/or stake it down, so it won't blow away.

 

Devin, my son, age 27,

a few weeks ago helped me, in the Taylorsville Garden, plant 38 tomato plants in 90 minutes. 

 

 

 

15 men, women and children

(half of them under 15 years old) worked hard in the South Jordan A Garden planting over 150 salad greens in 90 minutes!

 

This is probably the most exciting part of community gardening - seeing how fast things come together with just a few people!
