Wanna lose weight but you’re too lazy to work-out ? The easiest solution is to KILL WHITEY! No, not white PEOPLE. (I love them. They’re the homies.) I mean eliminate white foods from your diet. Say no to white salt, white sugar, white potatoes, white bread, white pasta, & white rice. The really nutritious foods in the Kingdom are colorful. Most white foods have been processed, bleached, & do not digest well in our system. (Hence, the muffin top.) For maximum health & digestion, try to eat vegetables from every single color of the rainbow each week. And when you get the urge to have some white starch or bleached chemical seasoning, consider these alternatives.
• WHITE SALT
-> coarse sea salt, pink salt, or black salt (FYI Lawry’s Seasoned Salt is not ur friend)
• WHITE SUGAR
-> real grade B maple syrup, agave nectar, raw honey (is not vegan though), or at the very least, organic cane sugar
• WHITE POTATOES
-> red potatoes, sweet potatoes, purple/blue potatoes (pictured below), or squash
• WHITE BREAD
-> whole multi-grain bread (not fake wheat-colored bread), whole wheat sprouted bread, fermented sourdough bread, gluten-free grain bread, or chapati
• WHITE PASTA
->spiraled zucchini, spiraled squash, kamut pasta, quinoa pasta, brown rice pasta, or whole grain pasta
• WHITE RICE
-> jasmine rice, brown rice, black rice, quinoa, or cous cous
‘Kill whitey’ for 2 weeks & watch the inches from your waste fade away!
You’re welcome, :-)
“Too Vain To Gain”
No Meat? Well What DO You Eat???

Whenever I tell someone I’m a vegan vegetarian they respond with, “OK, but you eat chicken, right?” No, I reply. I don’t eat animal products. I’m a vegetarian. They say “Oh, but you eat fish at least, right?” NO! I’m a vegetarian. I eat VEGE-tation. Defeated they then ask,“Umph, then what DO you eat?” So here are examples of what I may eat in a day:
BREAKFAST – an organic fruit & juice smoothie (no ice cream, yogurt, or chemical powders added. I use bananas to make it creamy & sweeter) – or a bowl of naturally sweetened cereal w/ vanilla almond milk – or tofu scramble w/ veggie bacon & naturally sweetened waffles w/ REAL maple syrup (not maple flavored corn syrup)
LUNCH – an avocado sandwich on gluten-free bread w/ plenty of organic lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, & sprouts w/ a bag of kettle chips – or a large fresh salad of lots of chopped organic produce w/ homemade vinaigrette dressing or non-dairy Goddess dressing – or a Portobello mushroom burger...
As a sistah from Inglewood, I’m often asked how I can dare pass up fried chicken, neck bones, or that plump turkey on the holidays. I’ve been hesitant to post this because there’s no quick way to answer. So alas here’s the story…
When I was 7 years old my mom’s friend was a vegetarian & she seemed super cool to me. Years later, my 9th grade health teacher was vegetarian & she was extremely energetic. Because of these 2 women, I’ve been very interested in the importance of maintaining optimal health. So at the age of 14, I stopped eating red meat. Like many Americans, I really thought a diet of poultry & seafood was Oh So Healthy, so I ate this way for years. But for some reason I couldn’t get rid of a lil pouch on my belly no matter how much I exercised. In 1999, as I began to study holistic healing, I learned some amazing facts. Even chicken & fish are harmful because human beings were not designed to be carnivores. Our teeth & intestines prove that. And our poor health confirms it! Did you know?...
