Nutrition

We are what we eat

If we eat junk food our cells will build unhealthy cells.

There are many healthy foods you can find at the local grocery store,

and more as time goes on, but, as a general rule, if it is real food,

and it is grown organically, I know it is good for me. 

The darker the color of the vegetable or fruit the higher the antioxidant

value. Fresh is better than frozen, frozen is better than canned,

and I never get frozen veggies or fruit with added ingredients.

I don't buy food in cans any more, too many dangerous BPAs.

I know sweet potatoes are better for me than white potatoes and brown rice is great fiber for detoxing. Good, clean water, alkaline, if possible,  half my body weight in ounces helps flush out my body. Organic juices help get good nutrition to my body quickly, but, I like to make smoothies more than juicing as I need the fiber.

If you can't afford to buy organic juices then read the labels of the store brands and purchase the ones that DON'T have artificial ingredients. BE CAREFUL AND READ LABELS THOROUGHLY - A product can say ALL NATURAL even if it only has ONE natural ingredient and can contain HARMFUL ingredients. If you can't pronounce it you probably can't digest it! 


Activated charcoal and Bentonite clay is also good for detoxing toxins out of my body and cilantro, an herb used in cooking Mexican food, is fantastic for removing heavy metals (along with chlorella:) Lemons in water makes it alkaline for a good flush too. Probiotics (acidophilus etc.) are good to help re-establish a healthy digestive system.


Many of us are accustomed to having cereal and fruit in the morning. Those high carbs are more easily digested mid day. "Fit for Life" suggests fruit first thing in the morning but I know I do better with protein first thing; a green smoothie is my favorite but when I can't make my smoothie a protein shake (watch the ingredients-VEGA and RAW MEAL are good brands), a piece of fish, an egg, a slice of turkey or last night's left over chicken is great way to start my day.

Non-nutritious foods to avoid

NON-NUTRITIOUS FOODS TO AVOID - The sugars in alcohol make my liver slow down and I have an under active liver to start with so I keep my alcohol consumption to an absolute minimum. It causes me to gain weight, feel sluggish and eventually experience pain in my lower left rib cage, where my pancreas is located. Caffeine is something I don't do very much of now, but it is known to interfere with the bodies' processes so it is another good thing to drink in moderation or eliminate. Anything white-white flour (bread), white rice and white pasta - just remember, anything white is like glue (gluten;)-it will stick to you on the inside !  Processed foods, frozen foods with additives, preservatives, etc. etc.- if it isn't REAL FOOD, I don't eat it-especially when trying to lose weight. Anything artificial-sweeteners, colors, flavors-if it says artificial, I don't want it in my body, especially the sweeteners! Studies have proven when people STOPPED drinking diet drinks and ceased consuming artificial sweeteners they lost an average of 40 pounds. Even regular sodas are useless calories and the carbonation leeches the calcium from my bones so I don't drink them anyway. It may sound like I don't eat or drink much-but when I am trying to accomplish a weight loss or to just feel better, I do my best to eat and drink real food. 

Here's what two of my "famous in the healing world" teachers say about me: C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD founder of the American Holistic Medical Society says this about me, "Diane is a jewel spreading joy and health as she goes."  Winter Robinson, PhD, says, "Medical Intuits come in all shapes and sizes with different areas of expertise. Diane Jackman Skolfield is one of those rare intuitives who not only senses the imbalance in a person's body, she backs her impressions up with solid, practical nutritional advice. When I need another pair of eyes, Diane is the one I turn to."

Yes, that would be me blowing my own horn, but, somebody's gotta do it;) Many Blessings On Your Day!!!
