Yes, you can detox and feast too! How do you want your burger uncooked: well done gourmet or rare nutrition? How about both! I’m talking about an organic raw plant-based burger recipe that not only satisfies the heartiest of stomachs but nourishes and detoxifies your body.

It is my mission to empower you (and the world if you’ll help me!) with the strategy of combining superfood nutrition with easy-to-make, yet exquisite gourmet. Nutrition + Gourmet = Compliance = Health Results. Make this burger now because you deserve it. (Why would you not? Come on get crackin’!)

 

Delectable Detox Burger surrounded by Russian kale and veggies, topped with avocado and seed cheeze.

Blend in a food processor for 5- 10 minutes:

 

5 cups soaked (2 – 24 hours) organic pumpkin seeds (approximately 3 1/2 unsoaked pumpkin seeds)

2/3 cup cold pressed organic olive oil

1/2 cup soaked (or not soaked, no biggy!) organic raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup chopped ripe organic bell pepper

1/3 cup raw organic sesame tahini

1 – 2 tablespoons organic unpasturized sauerkraut

1 tablespoon raw organic dark-colored miso of choice

1 tablespoon sea salt

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon fresh de-stemmed rosemary

1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon organic ground cayenne

juice of 1 lemon

4 cloves organic garlic

OPTIONAL (but choose at least 1 to make this a truly detoxifying and super nitrifying burger!):

1 – 2 tablespoons zeolite powder (deeply detoxes environmental toxins from your body)

1 – 2 tablespoons richly brewed herbal tea of prepared rhemannia and shisandra berries (such a great “grilled” burger flavor, not to mention youth-building power)

1 tablespoon medicinal mushroom powder of choice (immunity with meaty flavor)

 

When somewhat smooth, add:

 

1 cup chopped peeled organic onion

1/2 cup chopped fresh organic leafy herbs of choice (cilantro is great! so is parsley!)

 

Blend lightly for 10 seconds or until onion and herbs are mixed but still somewhat chunky. Using a spatula, make over a dozen 4-5 inch patties on sheeted dehydrator trays or parchment paper covered baking tray. Dehydrate in dehydrator at 145*F for 2 hours or place in a convection oven at the lowest heat possible (avoid going over 160*F. If your highest setting is much higher simply turn off the heat after 20 minutes but keep the convection fan on. Reheat as needed.) for 4 hours. Flip and continue to dehydrate in dehydrator/oven for at least 1 hour before serving or up to 12 more hours for a chewier burger.

Serve warm with a salad and other organic richly nutritious recipes of choice.

In my new video “High Fruit? Low Fruit? Or…?,” I share an insight regarding the latest Internet health debates on sweet fruit intake, high sugar/low sugar, raw food, wild food, and indigenous-style eating. I have found that you can have your ultra healthful cake and eat it too…with a little-known clever food preparation.

All ancient and modern cultures have fermented foods. They take sugar-containing foods (some foods that are  edible raw/unfermented and foods that are not truly edible until fermentation) and subject them to a fermentation process (wines, kefirs, yogurts, cheeses, beers, sauerkrauts, sourdough bread, etc.) to create a NEW food. This new food – or ferment – has gone through a biological medium (usually a symbiotic colony of lactobacilli (good bacteria) and yeasts (good fungi) that eats up the sugar and turns it into more probiotic bacteria, amino acids, B vitamins, and a huge amount of co-factor nutrients that do wonders for our health.

This is sprouted oats blended with kefir grains and spring water. This will ferment to create the base of a raw sourdough bread.

A ferment typically takes 36 hours to many months to finish depending on the ferment and thus it can do what our own intestines (which are also rich in good bacteria and yeasts) cannot because our digestive process should be 24 hours or less. For the hardcore raw food simplicity eaters who think that we can skip ferments, this is a big concept to accept.

We must also accept the fact that most agricultural food (from the farm and the garden) has undergone a multi-generational genetic change through selective breeding based on farmer’s preference, which typically makes a food bigger (less nutrient dense), sweeter (too much sugar than we need) and less bitter (not enough medicines, which act to nourish our body’s immune system, endocrine system, nervous system, etc.). On the flip side, we must also accept that a lot of wild

Master Cleanse Kefir from the book "Superfood Beauty Elixirs." (http://SuperfoodBeautyElixirs.com) Unlike the typical master cleanse lemonade which is loaded with maple sugar, this ultra-low-glycemic version is rich in coconut kefir's probiotics, B vitamins, amino acids and many co-factor nutrients.

food is often very small, not pleasantly sweet, and too high in bitters (too many alkloids can be toxic to consume strait).

Interestingly, fermentation can be a solution to rendering BOTH the agricultural foods and the highly medicinal wild foods into a more ideal food for us humans to consume: a ferment.

For example, agricultural fruits have too much sugar for most people to handle without spiking blood sugar. However, if we ferment fruits in a controlled manner we end up with a low-sugar beverage that is even more nutritious than the fruit itself. We also can take highly medicinal food and let a ferment break down some of the harsh alkaloids. Wild cruciferous (and to some extent domesticated cruciferous too like the common cabbages) have goitrogens (thyroid function suppressors), but upon fermenting them into a sauerkraut the goitrogens are broken down. The phytates (anti-nutrients that block our absorption of certain nutrients) in seeds can be broken down through sprouting (which is similar to fermentation in that you are activating an enzymatic process via soaking seeds in water) and fermenting when making seed mylk kefirs/yogurts.

Most fermented products available at your local health food store are NOT organic and are often adulterated with extra cane sugar and preservatives. Or in the case of many store-bought kombuchas,

the kombucha ferment is just not DONE yet, and thus a lot of sugar still remains to be eaten and turned into other nutrients. Organic unpasteurized sauerkrauts are easy to find, but all the other ferments are few and far between: raw kefirs, organic pure meads and ciders, organic pure vinegars (other than apple cider vinegar)…these varieties of ferments are not conveniently available for us high-quality seekers yet. Thus I hope my article and video inspire you to start making your own from scratch so that you can have a variety of ferments to add into your regimen. Do some research online and start making your own kefirs and other ferments in your own kitchen.

Lyrics:

CB: Yo, deep from the heart of Amazon herbalism
An ally at large for folks who like the cures in ‘em
This buddy of mine, can you guess who he is?
If I told you he’s the highest whole food antioxidant?
Either you stumped or you know
Based on the title of this show.
You best not be pronouncing it COCOA.

Please say hello to my little friend,
Purple beans to send from the Amaz”a”n,
Prevents bulldozing the rainforest to raise chemical cows
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!

CHORUS:
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao!
Let’s raise the roof for…

Aumm and the now power of now is how I first got into this:
Holistic living mindin’ my own business,
But in 2003 I got into raw food.
Turned 18 then, been vital since adulthood.
In 2004 I couldn’t ask for more:
Did the green powders, the nuts, seeds and sprouters.

I snuck some pieces of roasted sugarized
Chocolate, but I knew the lies, I was a doubter
‘till the day my superfood goodies order arrived
I gave myself the first dibs,
A crunch, a chew, I was feeling alive
As I experienced my first raw cacao nibs!

Raw chocolate a mineral supplement,
Highest source of magnesium, chromium, and so much more
A hero reverses the worlds mineral deficiencies
Scientific facts prove shamanistic folklore

By 2006 raw cacao powder and butter,
Came on the market to near from far
I co-created with YogiSuzi, my friend of another mother
The infamous superfoodized WildBar

Deputy Commissioner for the FDA, Michael Taylor, regarding cacao what do you have to say?

MT: I think I don’t like it at alls,
Haven’t patented or genetically modified it’s chromosomes,
But serve it with estrogenic cow milk and sugar, and I’ll give it a go.

CB: I think you’re a bigger deception than running heal-toe.

MT: Your niche of foodies need to really move on, you know
And try the ingredients that get my stamp of approval.

CB: No thanks Mike I make difference choices now,
I choose wild foods and superfoods like maca and cacao

Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for raw cacao
Let’s raise the roof for…

Now I know what you might be thinking.
Is this guy coo coo for cacao poofs?
Doesn’t he know that cacao is to theobromine as to hard liquor is to proof.
An addictive intoxicant, unnatural chemical dependency,
Surely he must be in denial of this superfood fallacy
Rest assured I’m aware of the debate
But in love and in my rational
There ain’t no room for cacao bean hate
In fact pass me some of that Arriba national.

You see, in the wild, all food has medicine in it,
These original foods have alkaloids and bitter nutrients.
They are good for our receptor sites at the right doses
I’m not saying drink liquid cacao from high pressure hoses.
Use cacao as an ingredient, a recipe addition that has buttery bitters
Then balance it with plenty of creamies, herbs and sweeteners.
You’ve just stacked the odds in your favor,
Cacao, the MAOI-like neuro-potentiator,
Please save me more for later

Mike, for ships and cosmic giggles, I give you the floor.

MT: Thanks Bates. Ideally terrorists like you wouldn’t be here anymore
You’de be in FEMA’s collateral 90%.

CB: Whoa, don’t haise me bro, my raps getting’ a dent.
This is a cacao party with a positivity and an afterglow

MT: I know, but only when allowed by bill S-510.

CB: That’s been called the food fascism bill
Threatening my ability to make superfood American pies on my window sill,

MT: Bates I got a new chorus for you:

Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops

Changing our name on the television
Hiding the truth again and again
Psychopathic rulers oppress citizens
We make the orders for all the governments

Parasites stuck in our DNA
Totalitarian tiptoe is our way
A war on your mind, a war on your brain
Don’t think hard, remain innocent

Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops
Let’s raise the roof for government psyops

Bates its time we took you out
Gonna silence you so you cannot shout!

CB: Not afraid of you and I will not pout
I got a secret weapon just open your mouth….

MT: Oh my freaking cacao goddess I feel good I think I’ll go on a hike.

CB: Holy cacao, we’re gonna let you go Mike,
For an outrageous impression, please Subscribe, Comment and Like
But seriously only if you do Like, use your mind, your discernment,
These days its more challenging to know who’s got the clearest vision,
Use this mode of communication while you can, the world wide Internet
Keep discussing, ask who can entertain the many ways of making decisions
Turn off your television.
give your throat a break of shoving down corporatism.

Go outside and touch the Earth, son,
Get some naked rays of sun,
You are the one, hon’, the superhero with the paradise dreams,
Keep your insides clean, get the natural medicine in.

Together we seek to love, experience and know
Tune in next time to the Rappin’ Irresistible Health Show!

(Chorus during credits)

Ultimate Holiday Thyme Bread Rolls Recipe

 

Feed through the top of a food processor with the shredder blade (single cut shredder blade, NOT the small holes grater blade), or slice thinly with knife:

 

2-3 medium-large onions, peeled and cut into smaller pieces.

 

Place onion shreds into large bowl.

Blend in a food processor (now with “S” metal blade) into a meal consistency:

3 cups organic sunflower seeds or organic fresh non-rancid walnuts or black walnuts if you can get them. OPTIONAL: Soak, rinse and germinate nuts/seeds ahead of time.

3/4 cup chia seed

1 tablespoon sea salt

1 clove garlic

 

Then add and blend again until dough-like:

 

1/4 cup cold-pressed olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh thyme or dried cut and sifted thyme

 

Add this batter to the bowl of onion shreds and sprinkle in:

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2-4 teaspoons Longevity Power Longevity Spirulina

OPTIONAL: Longevity Power Maca Bliss

Mix and mash with your bare clean hands and shape into bread roll shapes of your choice and place on dehydrator trays. Dehydrate 6 hours, then turn rolls over and dehydrate another 4-12 hours. Dehrate longer if you want crispy rolls, shorter if you want extra moist rolls. Serve warm from the dehydrator. Have the Best Holiday Season Ever!

Raw cacao is considered by some the best food ever, by others a stimulant not part of an optimal diet, and by others the most nutritious food ever but they don’t eat it because its too stimulating in their experience. It’s so funny how things in the raw food world are seemingly conflicting, but of course there is truth behind it all. I’d like to appeal to everybody here and show you what I do with cacao that cancels the stimulation side and turns on the balancing side. If you have sworn to yourself that you are done with cacao, or if you are currently eating bags of cacao every week, either way this is the blog for you.

My technique of eating cacao without the stimulation is a new way of looking at chocolate that is also the ancient South American way of looking at chocolate: eating cacao with an abundance of tonic herbs and other superfoods.

Blueberry pie with chocolate-shilajit seed crust

So, next time you make an all raw cacao drink, chocolate ice cream, hard chocolate, fudgey pudding, chocolatey bliss balls, cacao-containing energy bars, chocolate pie, or any other raw recipes you enjoy, consider ammending those recipes with the rich earthy flavors of these tonic herbs and superfoods (each ingredient is a link to a source of the ingredient I really like):

Internet orders + blender + cacao + herbs = gourmet cacao without the stimulation

~Astragalus Powder

~Blue Green AFA algae

~Chaga Mushroom powder

~Cordyceps Mushroom powder

~Ginseng Bude Blossom Crystals

~Goji berries (Up to you to decide whose goji’s you like best)

~He Shu Wu extract powder

~Host Defense multi-mushroom mycelium powder

~Lion’s Mane mushroom extract

~Mucuna powder

~Noni powder

~Pearl Powder

~Reishi Mushroom extract powder

~Rhodiola extract powder

~Royal Jelly (Sean Lee Gardner’s Organic Powder)

~Shilajit powder

~Spirulina powder (“Azteca” and “Manna“)

~Tonic Herb Tea (Bethanne’s blog shows you how to make this; this tea is perfect to make as part of the nut mylk base for the cacao drink! We get all our tea herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs)

~Vanilla Bean powder

I am going to request that you let loose some ideas you might have about your chef skills and realize that you are ALREADY a deeply skilled master alchemical chef ready to whip up a cacao recipe with this technique – even if it is just simply bliss balls (bunch of coconut flakes, hemp seeds, cacao, a couple teaspoons of tonic herb powders and sweetener mashed and rolled into small balls!). Another simple quick recipe is to mix raw cacao powder with melted coconut oil, some sweeteners, pinch of salt, and your choice of herbal powders, and then put into ice cube trays and chill.

My very Edible Goddess sipping a reishi "hot" chocolate

There is one more variable to the situation of how stimulated or balanced you feel with cacao and that is the quality, processing temperature, and sprouting of the cacao. Sprouted cacao (hardly available on the market today, but will be available soon) will likely be the ideal cacao as the spouting may lower the theobromine content and boost the more calming constituents. We will see, and you can bet I am really excited to see, if a sprouted cacao revolution comes about. Of course, if the cacao has been pressed or even secretly roasted despite being labeled “raw,” then that can also mess with the desired more balancing effects of cacao. We hope that truly raw heirloom and wild quality cacao will only grow in the market and that all the sources will get much better at consistently having the best ever cacao beans, powder, butter and paste – all made with integrity and love.

For now, don’t fear cacao. Eat as much cacao and herbs as you can handle so that you can enjoy the best health ever with therapeutic amounts of minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and spirit-boosting effects contained within all of these superfoods and herbs.

If you are reading my blog then you have probably dabbled with certain superfoods, or you might be well on your way to incorporating a whole superfood program to your best-ever fun and healthy lifestyle. We can make a difference in our health by trying all the big superfoods out there (raw cacao, blue green algae, maca, goji berries, marine phytoplankton, etc.), but I want to talk about 4 of them that you might not have realized can change your life, your body, the radiant vital health of your tissues….if the dosage is high enough!

MSM Powder

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur molecule that is found in plants, in rain, in your body, and just about everywhere but the Standard American Diet. Most people are seriously deficient in sulfur and suffer the constipating impermeability of their cells and tissue as a result of such deficiency. Taking MSM not only plugs sulfur in where it is biologically needed, but greatly opens up your body from the inside-out, detoxing you and allowing more nutrition of what you are already eating to go deeper into you cells. This promotes more vital tissue function, flexibility and growth, including having hair and nails grow in stronger. MSM can reverse allergies and speed up recovery after exercise, but most importantly it simply is key to going to a newer level of health. We go on MSM programs of having a daily half gallon drink of water that contains over 10,000 mg of MSM (1 tablespoon of MSM powder, 1 heaping tablespoon of MSM crystals). When one first does MSM, spread your daily dosage out over the whole day not having more than a couple thousand mg at once, or it might feel detoxingly-weird. Then within a month, full dosages start to feel really good. We use OMICA’s new MSM Crystals.

Shilajit Powder

Shilajit is a resin found in the Himilayas where it oozes out of walls of rock. It is the product of eons of the Earth pressing plant and soil matter, creating an edible coffee-tasting concentrate of minerals and fulvic acids. Considered the best “herb” of Ayurvedic medicine, the fulvic acid content can pull out heavy metals even when one is already taking zeolites. We recomend getting it in powder extract form. You can blend in 2 tsp of it to a sweetened nut mylk for the best “latte” ever! Again, you gotta do this one everyday for days in a row to push the best health ever button and experience the results!

We have already had half of this batch of coconut water kefir in the last 2 days!

Coconut kefir is a drink made from taking coconut water and kefir grains and fermenting them for two days into an effervescent sugar-free probiotic-rich soda. We recommend taking 3 large packs of ONE brand coconut water (word is this product is the best quality and is pasteurized at a raw temperature below 120*F) and mixing the coconut water with a small bag of kefir grains (purchase kefir grains organic and vegan from eBay), let sit in a towel-covered lid-open gallon glass jar in warm area. When done, blend the kefir with some vanilla and stevia to make the best soda ever! This substance makes me smile with my first sip as my ecosystem of good bacteria in my body light up as new friends come aboard. We need a lot of probiotics because we are supposed to have pounds in our gut, and we all come from a toxic background where everything we ate had some antibiotic poisonous bad-bacteria and yeast promoting trait. Taking small probiotic capsules usually aren’t enough, and to take an efficacious amount of capsules is not a good bang for your buck. Doing a daily regimin for weeks at a time with coconut kefir can reverse the sad symptoms of residual vitamin B deficiency and probiotic deficiency, as well as boost digestion to no end! If you have any yeast issues, your solution may center around coconut kefir.

Amla berry extract powder

High Vitamin C BerriesThese berries include Camu, Acerola and Amla. The tissue-healing, immuno-modulating, feel-great qualities of taking these daily in large dosages is perhaps necessary for health. Just having the vitamin C from eating oranges is really only enough to prevent scurvy. We want to have wild amounts to get the results we are looking for. Daily blenderfuls of water, couple teaspoons of camu or amla powder or a couple tablespoons of acerola powder combined with a pinch of salt and stevia will get the job done.

Now if you can somehow get all 4 of these substances in large doses most days for the next 3 months, then your next level of health is imminent and uncapped. Stay tuned: Bethanne and I are creating a tonic elixir recipe ebook soon that will show you how to make high dosage drinks with these superfoods in the tastiest way ever!

I want to hear from you! Please respond to this post if you have any success stories or any healthful results you have experienced from taking any of these 4 magical superfoods. I read all comments. Thank you!

Imagine this. You are a superfoodist far away from home and your bag of goodies runs out, your water jugs break, and the local food scene is NO help. Low in your usual vital energy you try to fast! But then, far away from home, you bog down and eat some starchy non-superfood meal with crappy water, your blood sugar spikes, your skin breaks out, you feel helpless and….

You wake up from the nightmare and decide to become FULLY prepared.

If a superfoodist like yourself is less than excellently prepared with food and drink abundance while traveling in every condition, then peace of mind can only go so far. We are what we eat, so let’s remain the best ever when we are on the go and only get healthier everyday with no stress. The prepared and well-stocked superfoodist at home becomes an elite traveler in this blog post.

There are a few travel factors and every destination will have a particular permutation which will help you decide what to bring.

~By car or by plane?
~Going by yourself or with others?
~Traveling to hardly-raw friendly or mostly raw-friendly scene?
~Spring water nearby or not?
~Refrigeration on location or not?
~Kitchen for you or not?

Last summer, I went to the one week Enlightenned Warrior Training Camp in 100*F Fresno, CA. No person or situation was going to cater to me. All I had was my car. I knew a raw foodist couple who went to the camp the year before who ended up drinking tap water and eating conventional produce and got sick! Conditions would be rough…if I wasn’t fully prepared, which I was 😉 and had the best time of my life!

Thus I brought many gallons of spring water, each bottle wrapped in blankets to avoid breakage in my trunk. I only brought prepared non-perishable foods, as I had no time to prepare, no refrigeration, no camp food to add. How did I have a great balance of savory and sweet superfood lifestyle complete meals and snacks during the intensity of a five-day intensive camp? How did I eat like a king with enough to share?! Stay tuned for detailed instructions in part 2…

I wish to start my first blog entry by saying that this website ChristianBates.com has been a long time coming. Having eating an organic health-minded diet (one high in superfoods I might add) for 7+ years I have realized that I have leading edge ideas and methods streaming through me a mile a minute, and I want to give you everything I have. My eating and lifestyle recommendations will be only of the most uncompromised, top quality that this growing movement has seen. I see that a lot of methods in the raw food world are missing “the edge” to truly give you the deep core energy, radiant revitalization, impenetrable immune system, and absolute joy that is truly attainable. I will present everything so that you can pick and choose what to easily add in to your life, one step at a time, so that you can have the most exciting and healthiest life ever!

Tip #5
Eat superfoods and wild foods. These were the only foods available several thousand years ago, all other choices today can be called “hybridized,” “demineralized,” or they otherwise lack the virility that turns on our genius DNA so that we can shed our past domesticated sickness and grow into our sexy God/dess brilliance. However, avoid being too restrictive with this. We don’t go 100% wild overnight. Start by eating a couple types of high quality superfoods like heirloom cacao, fun wild food like chickweed or dandelion (probably growing within 10 to 100 feet of you right now), and of course sea vegetables (which are all wild). While adding these magical foods in, keep a balanced diet with plenty of fats (nuts, seeds and olive oil, etc), greens vegetables, sprouts, spring water, low sugar fruits and fruit-vegetables, some sea salt, immune-modulating tonic herbs like reishi, cacao blendies and some bangin’ savory gourmet dense meals. Over time we will all together begin to displace our raw agricultural staples with the wilder equivalents, one balanced step at a time.

Tip #4
Make tonic herbal tea. Now termed “superherbs,” these high mineral immunomodulating herbs which are at par in potency with superfoods should be taken in abundance. Although I definitely also recommend taking as many pre-made powders or capsules of superherbs as you can afford, FIRST go for the tea you make yourself at home. You can easily order online a quick tea blend of chopped reishi mushroom, cat’s claw, pau d’arco, ginseng, goji berries, gynostemma, and vanilla bean. Brew those up with water (preferably spring water) and a pinch of salt in a 1.5 quart or bigger pot, letting simmer for at least 20 minutes. Sweeten with stevia. There are so many other tonic herbs I consume in tea form on a consistent basis like dandelion root, cistanche, red asparagus root, jujube date, astragalus, white atractylodes, cinnamon, schisandra berries, turkey tail mushrooms, cordyceps, etc. The hot water extracts (a.k.a. tea) of the superior herbs deeply nourish the organs and glands. Many of them are full of polysaccharides which go into your body and teach your immune system to be ever more resilient. Dabbling in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Amazonian herbal medicine will reveal a whole world completely compatible with raw foods.

Tip #3
Eat plenty of high quality oily foods. Experiment with what ratio of fat, protein and carbs keep you balanced. Try the oily food chia. You might surprise yourself as to how little sugar you actually need, and how much fat your body is actually craving after a lifetime of eating too much sugar and only toxic fats. This goes with the part of tip #5: avoiding hybridized produce which has been foolishly bred over generations to have higher sugar and lower medicine – the exact opposite of what we actually want.

Tip #2
Realize that water is a living organism and that you are mostly water. Fresh spring water is the only living water, and all high-tech filtration systems cannot bring tap water back to life. However, it would be wise to stay hydrated on plenty of filtered water than to have too little water because you are holding out for the spring water. Go to www.findaspring.com and find your local spring. Get a carload of spring water in jugs from it twice a month, and feel the difference that fresh living water makes to your state of well-being.

Tip #1
Connect your diet to your lifestyle and nature. Touch moist earth with bare skin and get electrically and spiritually grounded. Get naked in the sun this spring and summer. If you have nosy neighbors, but a private south facing window, open it at noon, take the screen off and get a tan indoors! Garden with heirloom and wild seeds, and make sure you amend your soil with GroPal, rock dust, MycoGrow, bat guano and silt from your nearest clean river or creek. Saturate your mind with educational YouTube videos on herbs, superfoods, wild foods, spring water, and begin to pick out what is great information from what and who is missing the mark. Acknowledge your efforts and have really high self esteem about your choices no matter what!
