Blood Type Diet: Fact or Fiction? by Michael Klaper, M.D.

There's a big following for this diet with absolutely no scientific proof. Here's an article written by a real doctor that prescribes life-saving diets with the best explanation: 

Blood Type Diet: Fact or Fiction?

by Michael Klaper, M.D.

The "blood type diet" theory has gained widespread attention from the public since the release of "Eat Right For Your Type" by Peter J. D'Adamo, N. D. (G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, 1996). The book's basic premise - that Type O's are the dominant, hunter-caveman type that require meat in the diet, Type A's are docile vegetarians, and Type B's are dairy-eating omnivores - has become a dietary manifesto for many people. However, the "blood type diet" theory, and the book that promotes it, presents many problems that prevent me from seriously basing any of my dietary choices upon them.

Green Zombie Killer Shake (dairy-free, sugar-free & fruit-free) Recipe

Green Zombie Killer Shake (dairy-free, sugar-free & fruit-free) Recipe
by Kim Smith

Here another one of my green smoothies that makes a lot if you follow the recipe, but you can put any extra in a mason jar and keep it in the fridge. I would try to drink it the same day. This definitely needs to be made in a high-speed blender like the Vitamix or Blendtec.

3 cups Skinny Bliss Tea or water
2 Tbsp. organic chia seeds
2 Tbsp. organic hemp seeds
2 Tbsp. organic pumpkin seeds
1 tsp. HealthForce Spirulina Manna
1/2 tsp. HealthForce Elixir of the Lake blue green algae
1 tsp. organic vanilla powder
1 rib organic celery
3 small organic cucumbers
3 cups greens (organic spring lettuce mix, organic spinach, etc...)
1-2 squirts Sweetleaf flavored liquid stevia (I used English Toffee)
If more sweetness is needed add Now Foods organic stevia powder to taste

Blend with ice.


All of the wonderful essential fats in the seeds help disguise the flavor of the greens. This shake will kill any morning zombie feelings and give you amazing energy! All of the ingredients with the exception of the fresh organic veggies are available at Pure Health Foods.

The Lean Green Machine (Fruit-Free, Sugar-Free Smoothie) Recipe

The Lean Green Machine
By Kim Smith

This recipe makes a lot so you can share with someone or put leftovers in a mason jar and in the fridge for later, and I recommend using a Vitamix or Blendtec high-speed blender.

3 cup Skinny Bliss Tea or purified water
2Tbsp. organic chia seeds
1/4 cup organic pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp. HealthForce Elixir of the Lake blue green algae powder
1 Tbsp. HealthForce Spirulina Manna powder
1 1/2 Tbsp. HealthForce VitaMineral Greens powder
1/2 tsp.  Yerba Mate Royale Instant Tea (optional)
3 cups organic young romaine or spring lettuce or spinach mix
Add Now Foods organic Stevia powder to your taste for sweetness
Medicine Flower organic for culinary use flavor drops (Yes, we carry these at Pure Health Foods for $21.99 1/2 oz) When it comes to these drops, a little goes a long way! I used 2 drops strawberry with 2 drops banana for my flavoring.
Blend with ice.


I promise you won't taste the greens if you make this recipe exactly as it's written here. This smoothie gives you great energy. It's awesome in the morning to get you going or before a workout. It also has everything you need as a meal replacement.

All of the ingredients, with the exception of the fresh organic greens are available at Pure Health Foods.

1 young coconut (meat & water)
1/2 Tbsp organic curry powder
1 Tbsp organic hemp oil

3 Tbsp diced organic red, yellow or orange bell pepper

Pour the water from the coconut in a high speed blender and add the coconut meat, blend with curry powder, hemp oil, coconut aminos, garlic granules, cayenne and Real Salt until creamy. Pour in your bowl stir in the rest of the veggies.


Blended Raw Vegan Soup Recipe "Spicy Tomato"

We'd like to share this soup recipe we created about 9 years ago after being raw for a year and while we were working at the Go Raw Cafe.

"Spicy Tomato"
(ingredients for each person - if making for 2, double ingredients, etc...)

4 organic tomatoes
1/2 large organic zucchini or 1 small organic zucchini
1/2 organic red bell pepper
1/2 large organic avocado
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
4 or 5 soaked organic sundried tomatoes
1 clove organic garlic or organic garlic granules to taste
organic cayenne powder to taste
organic Mexican or taco seasoning to taste
Real Salt or Himalayan salt to taste (optional)

Blend in food processor or blender.

If you'd like to add more greens, a handful of organic arugula is great or if you's like it sweeter you can add 1/2 of an organic carrot shredded, too.

Monsanto's Roundup Herbicide - Important Video for Your Health

At this time in our history for our health and survival we all need to go back to organic. Before World War 2 every food was organic, so was our clothing. Pesticides came about from left over war chemicals. They created the pesticide market to make money on the chemicals that were used to kill people in the war. It not only hurts the consumer that eats these foods, but also the farmers and farm workers exposed to these chemicals. Infants and children are truly impacted by these chemicals and the GMO's. The cost of not going organic far outweighs the cost of organic. The more organic we buy will bring the prices down even more and make it easier to find.  If you can grow your own organic non-gmo food at home, you'll help even more. Please watch and share this video and the information. Thank You! 

Monsanto's Roundup Herbicide—Featuring the Darth Vader Chemical

It was “supposed” to be harmless to humans and animals—the perfect weed killer. Now a groundbreaking article just published in the journal Entropy points to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and more specifically its active ingredient glyphosate, as devastating—possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”
That’s right. The herbicide sprayed on most of the world’s genetically engineered crops—and gets soaked into the food portion—is now linked to “autism … gastrointestinal issues such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease, obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, cachexia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS, among others.”
Enjoy this videotaped guided tour of Jeffrey Smith interviewing co-author Stephanie Seneff, PhD, who is a Senior Research Scientist at MIT. If you’ve already bogged down trying to work your way through the thick biochemistry jargon in the paper, this user-friendly but in-depth interview will give you great relief and insight.

Debunking the Paleo Diet: TED Talk

Ancient diet researcher Dr. Christina Warinner challenges some of the commonly held beliefs about the Paleo Diet in this fascinating talk.
Journey through history as she explores the edible landscape of our ancestors.
What’s your take on the Paleo Diet fad that is so popular?
From TED:
TED Fellow Christina Warinner is an expert on ancient diets. So how much of the diet phad the “Paleo Diet” is based on an actual Paleolithic diet? The answer is not really any of it.
Dr. Christina Warinner has excavated around the world, from the Maya jungles of Belize to the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, and she is pioneering the biomolecular investigation of archaeological dental calculus (tartar) to study long-term trends in human health and diet. She is a 2012 TED Fellow, and her work has been featured in Wired UK, the Observer,, Der Freitag, and Sveriges TV. She obtained her Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2010, specializing in ancient DNA analysis and paleodietary reconstruction.

It should also be noted that the ancestors the Paleo Diet refers to had a very short life span. In diet history, the longest living humans have lived on a plant-based diet.

Our 2013 Spring Juice Cleanse

Hi Everyone,

Kim here. Yes, Sean & I are in the middle of another juice fast :). We're on day 27. We've talked to several people about what our current juice recipes are and I wanted to post what I sent to a friend, so you can see what we're doing: (Note - EVERYTHING we juice is ORGANIC)

Here’s our breakfast & lunch ORGANIC J green juice (ideally you should yield a 32 oz juice)

One (or half if too tart for you) lemon
1 slice off an organic ginger (do as much as you would like)
Cucumbers (I’ve been getting the packages of Persian cucumbers from Trader Joe’s) 1 package per serving
Celery (Whole foods has them for $1.99 right now, one bunch per serving) (or if you get them from Trader Joe’s one package of the 2 bunches for the juice)
Romaine lettuce (I usually get the 3 head package from Trader Joe’s and use 1 head per juice)
My add-on to this are: organic stevia to taste and organic pumpkin spice. If you want to add an apple until your taste buds change, you can.

For our dinner savory ORGANIC juice:

One (or half if too tart for you) lemon
2 large tomatoes or 3 roma tomatoes
Zucchini (1/2 package from Trader Joe’s per serving)
Red bell pepper 1/2 large or 1 small
Romaine (1 head from Trader Joe’s bag)
Arugula or spinach (for flavor) 1 or 2 handfuls
Celery (1 bunch from Whole Foods or 1 package from Trader Joe’s)
My add-on to this: Real Salt or Himalayan salt to taste, Garlic powder or granules and cayenne to taste and 1 Tbsp hemp oil or Udo’s 3-6-9 oil.

Make with LOVE! J Enjoy!

My “Master Cleanse” lemonade
3 organic lemons squeezed in a half gallon of purified water, sprinkle in organic cayenne to taste, organic stevia to taste, and 12 drops Cellfood.

My in between tea – Organic Yerba Mate instant tea by Ancient Wisdom with Sweetleaf Stevia drops in Vanilla flavor and English Toffee flavor to taste.

I also have a glass of Health Force Elixir of the Lake blue-green algae…ton’s of nutrition and great for cleansing and an late afternoon pick me up.

I've also been drinking our SkinnyBliss tea

And if you’re not overloaded with liquids, plenty of purified water to flush out toxins. J

That’s what we’ve been doing for this juice fast.

FREE Showing of the documentary: I AM @ Pure Heath Foods

FREE Showing of the documentary: I AM @ Pure Heath Foods
7575 W. Washington Ave. #129, LV 89128

The evening of Wednesday, February 20th @  5:00 pm with a 15 minute community discussion afterwards. Seating the first 25 RSVP, first come first serve seats. 

 The documentary I AM is the story of a man who had it all until something happened to make him realize he might have it all…wrong. After a near-death experience, Hollywood film director Tom Shadyac (Ace Ventura) decided to spark a conversation around two rarely asked questions: what’s wrong with our world and what can we do about it?
And so Shadyac traveled the globe interviewing today’s greatest thinkers. And while he may have been filming a documentary, his film reveals a plot twist straight out of a blockbuster movie: scientific proof that we are all connected. By the final scene, it’s clear that while he started out asking what’s wrong with our world, he ended up discovering what’s right with it.
