    Hi Guys,

    Can we get a list of snaks that you guys are eating in between meals?  Let me start the list.

    1. Grass Fed Beef/Bison Jerky.

    2. Raw vegies

    3. Natural peanut better

    4. penuts.

    5. Fruit from some people? (For some reason fruit seems to bother me.  It did not use to but it does now, maybe the sugar, I have no idea but when I eat fruit i get these wierd boil like things on my scalp that contain fluid and blood, really strange?)

    6. Anything else you guys can think of?

     

    Thank you and take care of yourselves.

    I make granola buy mixing up dates in my food processor until they are like a paste and then I mix in any combination of nuts, seeds, coconut, flax meal you can even use dairy free chocolate chips if you can eat them with no problems.  This is a snack that curbs my appetite and satisfies for a long time.

    I make the recipe below and use it with veggies or homemade crackers.  I have also left out the onions and added lemon juice and dill weed and it is really good too.

    I don't like the peanuts/butter on your list, and am suspicious of the jerky if it contains soy and added sugars. Peanuts have mold and contain a toxin. I'd stay away from anything that's high in sugar. Dried fruits are all sugar. If fruit is giving you that boil reaction, I”d stay clear of that too. I haven't had a piece of fruit in 8 months. Fruits are high in fructose which is being found to disrupt uric acid levels, etc. Fruit and sugar were only available to people a few months out of the year and only what was locally grown, so it wasn't in their diets all year long like it is now, so the body could handle it better. You could be fructose intolerant for all you know. The body was meant to run on glucose from veggies. Fruits break down to fructose/glucose in the body and are just like table sugar. It promotes inflammation with AGE's (also found the burnt part of foods like the dark part of toast), and shortens lifespans. I can't handle sugar at all so I don't eat any. Most people should eat maybe 25 grams of fruit a day or less, better to have no more then 15 grams, which would be 1 to 2 small portions of low fructose fruits. Dr. Mercola has a list of those. I eat protein and/or veggies for snacks. I cut up red, green, yellow, and orange peppers or cucmbers, etc. and carry them with me. I'll eat a few shrimp, or some pieces of left over steak, a hard boiled egg, etc. I use no condiments except for sea salt. You get used to it after a while. 

    What's funny is I had a reaction of head bumps I though was from shampoo that inflamed an occipital lymph node in my neck. I had no idea that node was connected to the scalp. What if it was from something I ate and not the shampoo? I had to take a Zpack for it which wasn't great for my Candida issue.

    I only eat protein or cooked veggies and salad veggies like peppers, cucumbers, celery, carrots, cherry tomatoes, etc. I stay clear of jerky since it  usually contains soy and sugars. I don't like the peanuts or peanut butter since they contain mold, and have a toxin the body doesn't like. Other nuts would be a better choice, but just a few, you don't need a lot. 

    Fructose is being found to be disruptive to the body so it's best to keep it low in the diet. That includes fruits. You could be fructose intolerant and don't know it, or are allergic to a particular fruit. I had 3 head bumps that got infected and went into my occiptial lymph node on the side of my neck so it swelled up and I needed a Z Pack. I thought it was a reaction to shampoo/styling aids, which now more often then not, contain plant and fruit extracts too.

    Diane:  If you like Sea Salt, you should try himalayan. Most sea salt is toxic because our seas are not so clean. Himalayan salt is high in minerals too.

     

    I love reading these forums because it really shows we are all so individual and no diet fits all. Some people do well on fruit and nuts, others not so much.

    My thoughs on Jerky-love it. I make my own. My husband takes his yearly deer and we just make the whole thing into 4 gallon bags of jerky. I encourage you all to do the same. You don't have to worry about soy then. Don't look to the stores for food. That is not food. Make and grow your own.

    The sugar argument is one of the oldest there is. Sugar is a preservative and herloome varietys of it were medicinal and great for you as they were high in minerals. There is new research out that can affirm what we all know that natural forms of honey (this is a sucrose, same molecule as cane sugar or native table sugar) has many healing properties (Propolis and immune inhancers).

    It is true that is excess, sugar can weaken the immune system and excess fructose will be converted to fat by the liver. Sucrose has always been in our diets. It used to be present as cane sugar and honey and molassis. The caveate to this is not so much the sugar as it is that like wheat and dairy, we have caltivated an unnatural product in poor soils and it is no longer the healthy variety it used to be. Food is no longer medicinal once it is treated like a commodity.

    How do I sloved that problem?

    My inlaws have bees so we have our own source of medicinal honey. They harvest the honey straight from the comb and do not heat it and leave the wax and everything in it. It is amazing and it does not cause blood sugar spikes or issues. The key is to know the source of what you eat. Store bought honey would have the wax removed and even raw honey is processed. Honey should not be smooth, clear and  squirt from a bottle. It is a thick grainy subtance that is solid as a rock at room temperature.  Fruit or sugar from the grocery store, not going to be good for you. Most of the fruit is picked green and unrip and then rippened with ethanlene gas.  You lose many nutrients this way. I studied Dietietics in College and we got to tour “fruit trucks and fruit rooms” at the big food warehouses. They are all wired up to gas up the place to keep the fruit unnaturally green and then rippen them when it is time for them to go to the store. Very desturbing.

    I only use Himalayan or grey celtic sea salt. How lucky to be able to make your own jerky and have access to real honey Heidi. It dawned on me that I should look into getting a dehydrator, and using it for vegetables and meats. I’d have plenty of snacks then. I can’t have nuts, fruit, chicken, turkey, or eggs, but I like your snack selection just the same John. Once you retrain yourself to eat real food again, and see it doesn’t make you feel bad, you don’t miss the other stuff that did.
