Personal Note From the Owner
In this day and age, with all the law suit crazy people in this world, we here at TWJ must needs put the above information in it′s place for everyone′s protection.
Yes, it has become a sad state of affairs when doing such becomes not only necessary but also the norm.
Too, you will see the above Important, Before Continuing information repeated on each and every page where we are endeavoring to provide help to our neighbors.
That being said, all of the information provided within the Appendix Passage, especially in this section called A Wayƒarer′s Quill Strokes is free for any and all to access. Never have we or will we ask for a membership fee or a purchase price for any information that is presented in the Appendix Passage on this web site.
What is Living Food
Living Food, which after much prayer and even more research, methinks, is only organically grown plant-based food in it′s original state, uncooked, alive and still full of their natural organic and inorganic nutrients, especially when curing disease.
Some foods, such as fruits can be found dried and although often hard to find, choose only those dried fruits with No Added salt, sugar or oil.
Too, many would prefer vegetables cooked and hot and if so, vegetables can be lightly steamed or sautéed and still keep most of their nutrients. Sometimes, I stir fry vegetables in coconut oil and then add wild caught salmon or tuna.
Is Meat Part of Living Food
No, not if the purpose of using Living Food
is to cure disease. However, if an individual maintains the desire to eat meat, as I do for time to time, then the meat (beef, bison, foul, or wild game) should be lean and grass (range) fed, or if fish, it should be wild caught.
Grilling the meat is best, just enough heat to cook it through, not over done, and cooked by using grilling, roasting, baking, broiling, steaming, stewing, press cooking and slow cooking.
However, remember that meat has purine, which is inflammatory and also contraindicated for gout.
Proportions are Very Important
Methinks, the ratio for good health is two thirds vegetables to one forth lean meat and a small amount of good fats such as avocado, coconut, and nuts but the best ratio will be discussed in detail as more research is done.
As it is understood currently, the most accurate formula for a plate of living food is as follows. First, 60 percent of the plate should be greens, vegetables, and salads. The lean meat should cover 30 percent of our plate. Then, about 8 percent should be good fats, which leaves 2 percent, which can be anything of our own choosing, as long as it is on the list of Living Food below.
Too, drinking a liquid, either water or herb tea should precede the meal.
This proportions formula can be adjusted to one′s preferences. However, if you are trying to reverse a disease, then the food specifics and amounts should be kept as close to the diet and proportions as possible.
The following list has been developed from current research but continues to remain subject to change as new information is obtained through ongoing research.
Tips for Shopping
Always Read Labels
1. Check ingredient list for unwanted additives.
2. Look for foods with one or two ingredients.
Check the PLU codes, those little sticker on fruits and vegetables.
1. If it is four-digit number code, it is conventionally grown product.
2. If the four-digit number is preceded with a 9, it is an organic food.
3. If the four-digit number is preceded with an 8, it is a GMO food. Avoid!
Always Buy Organic:
1. Buy only those items whose PLU code begins with a 9
2. Buy these items when it’s labeled 100% organic
3. Buy these items that are labeled GMO-free
Always avoid all added Salt, Sugar and Additives (See
