THE FIVE MAJOR RULES FOR RAPID DEVELOPMENT
1. Eat well-cooked vegetables with breakfast, lunch and supper. This means eat three meals a day. It also means do not eat just grains and meats, mainly chemicalized food such as fast food, or much raw vegetables (salads).
Ideally, adults should at least 2 cups of well-cooked vegetables with each meal. It is best if they are fresh and not canned or frozen, although canned is actually better than frozen. Organically grown is usually superior, as well.
Vegetables need to be pressure-cooked for no more than 2 minutes and 40 seconds or steamed, boiled or slow-cooked for no more than about 45 minutes.
2. Eat animal protein twice every day. This means that for rapid development, do not eat a vegetarian diet. Animal protein includes red meat such as lamb, goat, some organic beef, poultry, sardines, eggs and a little goat yogurt.
However, limit the portion size for adults to 4-5 ounces or 110-140 grams of animal protein per serving, and no more.
3. Do not eat sweets. This means do not eat sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, coconut products such as coconut water, coconut cream or coconut milk, soda pop, fruit juice or much fruit or milk. It also means do not eat sweetened foods such as cookies, cakes, ice cream, pastries, all desserts, and many breads.
4. Do not drink any liquids with meals. This means have drinking water before your meal, then wait five minutes or longer before you eat your meal. It also means take your supplements before your meal if you need to have some water to swallow them. Then wait five minutes and then eat your meal.
It also means do not have smoothies, protein drinks, superfood drinks, frappes or any other drinks that combine water or other liquids with food. If you have carrot juice, have it alone. Then wait at least half an hour before eating a meal.
5. Use sea salt with all meals, preferably Hain or Hawaiian Bamboo Jade brands. This means do not avoid sea salt and do not use salt substitutes such as potassium chloride. Sea salt in moderation does not raise blood pressure or cause other problems. It also means do not use any standard table salt, which is a processed and toxic product.
THE DEVELOPMENT DIET
Development is fulfilling the full genetic potential of a human being and the primary goal of development programs. This is different from other healing programs and requires a different diet.
Certain foods contain the right chemicals needed for development. These foods are needed on a daily basis. This article discusses these foods.
Also, development is about regenerating the body at the deepest levels. For this reason, if you wish to understand this diet, read AGES.
We continue to research diet, so this article will be updated periodically. Please check it every six months.
Three groups of foods. Two other articles complete the series of articles about diet for development. They are:
FAST AND SLOW OXIDIZER DIETS
The dietary principles for fast and slow oxidizers are similar. However, they differ in the following ways:
Slow oxidizer diet. When the oxidation rate is slow, one needs less fat and more starches in the diet. There should be enough fat and oil in the development diet without adding extra fat. High-fat foods in the development diet are:
- Almond butter- very important! Do not skip this for any reason. If you donŐt like it, disguise the flavor. Organic almond butter is more costly, but better.
- Sesame tahini
- Oil found in blue corn chips
- Meats (mainly lamb, dark meat chicken, and organic ground beef. Wild game and turkey have a little fat, but not much)
- Eggs (specifically runny egg yolk)
- Goat yogurt
- Possibly a small amount of butter or vegetable oil used in cooking.
Fast oxidizer diet. Fast oxidizers require one to two tablespoons of additional fat or oil with each meal. They also require less starch in the diet.
Excellent extra fats are runny egg yolk, cream, butter, animal fats, and a little vegetable oil such as olive, sunflower, safflower or other vegetable oils.
Vary the type of extra fat or oil. For example, do not just have olive oil three times a day. This will unbalance the body.
Chicken skin is not that good as an extra source of fat. Do not eat it at all if the chicken is roasted because it is then toxic.
Carbohydrates or starches. Fast oxidizers require less carbohydrate than slow oxidizers. However, both slow and fast oxidizers need at least a few blue corn chips every day.
We wish that other grains supplied the same nutrients as blue corn chips, but they do not. We also wish that blue corn cereal or blue corn tortillas were as good as the chips, but they are not. Skipping the blue corn chips slows development a lot.
Do not overdo on corn chips, which is easy to do. Limit the number to about 5 per meal. If you are still hungry, add more vegetable to your diet rather than fill up on corn chips or other grains.
VARYING THE DIET DEPENDING ON ONEŐS HEIGHT, WEIGHT AND LIFESTYLE
The portion sizes recommended below are average sizes. If you are very small or very large, you can adjust the portion size accordingly. However, we find that most adults need several cups of cooked vegetables three times per day, regardless of their size or weight.
- Eat 2-3 cups of well-cooked vegetables with each of three meals every day. This is the most important part of the diet, and the one with which most people have the most difficulty.
Food is much less nutritious today than it was 100 years ago. This is why many more cooked vegetables are needed today. For details, read Everyone Is Depleted And Toxic.
You may puree vegetables after cooking them to make it easier to eat 2 cups of them or more. After your vegetables are cooked, pour off the water you cooked them in so you can drink it. Then use an electric hand blender to puree the vegetables. It looks like a stick with a cord at one end and a blade at the other end.
Do not use a regular blender because they require adding water. This is not good because the water dilutes the stomach acid. The hand blender does not require adding water to the vegetables.
- Vegetables must be cooked until they are soft, not crunchy or al dente. Otherwise, the body cannot absorb enough minerals from them. However, do not overcook vegetables.
- Eat almost exclusively the preferred vegetables listed below. There are about 28 of them. If you cannot obtain all the preferred vegetables, just do your best and eat lots of the ones you can get.
- Eat a medley or mixture of 10 or more of the preferred vegetables with each meal. This is new and replaces an older recommendation to eat between about 5 and 9 different vegetables per meal.
The preferred vegetables are:
Gold pearl onions
Red pearl onions
White pearl onions
Green onions or scallions
Daikon or white radish
Carrots (standard orange carrots only)
Broccolette, brocolini or baby broccoli (but not regular broccoli).
Cauliflower stems and leaves (sliced finely so they cook).
Other. Green beans, and a small amount of golden beets, celery, garlic and ginger.
For celery, have only about half an inch of a stalk twice a week. For golden beets, have a thin slice twice a week – about the size of a quarter coin. Have 2 little cloves of garlic weekly and 2-3 small slices of ginger weekly.
Here are more notes about certain vegetables:
Broccolini. This is delicate and cannot be cooked more than about 3 minutes in a pressure cooker without becoming overcooked and losing its nutritional value. If you wish, just eat the broccolini flowers and leaves, and discard the stems because they contain less of the chemicals needed for development.
Brussels sprouts. We are not sure why these are so named, as they are not sprouts. They are fully grown vegetables with many healing properties.
Everyone should eat at least one or two medium-sized Brussels sprouts every day.
Cabbage, red and Savoy. These are excellent for development. As with all vegetables, look for smaller heads of cabbage because they are more yang. Also, keep cabbage and all vegetables in plastic bags from the supermarket to help preserve their freshness.
Adults can have about 1/2 of a leaf of each one (red and Savoy cabbage) every day, at least. It should be soft, when cooked, and not crunchy.
Carrots. Smaller is better, but not the peeled, so-called Ňbaby carrotsÓ. In general, carrots and other vegetables that are loose test better than those sold in plastic bags.
For cooking, cut carrots into pieces that are about ¼ to ½ inch or 1 cm long. If the carrot is thicker than about 1 inch or 2 cm, slice the carrot longitudinally or the long way, as well. This way it will cook in a steamer or pressure cooker at the same rate as the other vegetables. Be sure to have carrots at least once a day.
Cauliflower. The best types are the orange and the purple cauliflower, even if they are not organically grown. Next best is white cauliflower. Green cauliflower is not recommended. Have some cauliflower every day and ideally with every meal.
Think of cauliflower as two vegetables: 1) the cauliflower, and 2) the stems that are around the cauliflower. Both contain the chemicals needed for development. The stems must be sliced thin or they wonŐt cook through.
Daikon or white radish. Have a little daikon preferably with each meal, or at least once a day. DonŐt substitute the common red radish or any other for daikon.
Garlic and ginger. Eat these only about twice a week, and only a very small amount. Garlic cooks quickly and should not be cut up. Ginger cooks slowly and needs to be sliced very thin and cut up some more in order to cook correctly.
Golden beets. These are helpful for development, but only a little is needed – about 1 thin slice of a medium-sized golden beet twice a week. Avoid red beets, which do not contain the chemicals for development.
Green beans, also called string beans. This is an excellent vegetable to speed up development. Have a few green beans every day.
Try to buy them loose and not in a plastic bag. The bagged ones seem to be affected by the plastic in the bag.
Cut them into about 1-inch pieces or 2 centimeter pieces. This is about right so they will cook at the same rate as the other vegetables. When cooked properly, they should be soft, not crunchy.
Green onions or scallions. This is an excellent vegetable for development. Have some daily.
Leeks. This is an excellent vegetable for development. Have some every day. Eat the whole leek – both leaves and stem.
Leeks often contain some dirt where the stem becomes the leaf. This is unavaoidable and you may have to wash this part when you cut a section of it to eat.
Onions. Onions are very important for development. They contain a number of chemical compounds that speed development. Without them, development proceeds slowly. Please eat them all, if you can find them. We suggest eating a little of three or more types of onions with each meal.
To extract all the minerals and other chemicals from onions, they must be cooked until soft. Small chunks cook well in 3 minutes or a little less in a pressure cooker or about half an hour in a steamer.
Rutabaga. When ripe, a rutabaga is a little soft and golden in color. If the rutabaga is very hard, it is not quite ripe. You can eat it this way, but it is not quite as sweet.
Slice rutabaga thin so it will cook through. When cooked correctly, it is sweet and delicious. When not thoroughly cooked, it is has a somewhat unpleasant taste so you will know to cook it more or slice it thinner. It is very helpful for development, so eat some every day if you can find it in your area.
Other vegetables do not contain as much of the chemicals needed for development, or they are too yin. Eat them only occasionally.
Shopping. Buyer smaller sized vegetables when there is a choice. These are more yang. Vegetables are usually better if they are bought loose, rather than in sealed plastic bags.
Storage. When you get vegetables home, rinse them off in plain water and then put them into clean plastic bags – the kind that are used at the supermarket when one buys loose vegetables. Just take home a few clean bags for this purpose. Store in the refrigerator.
The author stores vegetables in the bins in the refrigerator door because he finds it a little easier to remove the bins and put them on the counter top when it is time to cook.
Note for vegetarians (which we do not recommend): If you donŐt eat meat, then you need to eat more green vegetables to obtain iron.
Protein foods for daily use are:
Dark Meat Chicken (thighs or legs)
Sardines (a special food for development)
Lamb – Very good, but only one or two portions per week.
Organic ground beef - This is a new recommendation. We suggest that all adults and children have a few ounces, cooked in a special way, two times per week. Cooking instructions are below. Regular beef is just an occasional food and not highly recommended.
Eggs – Adult women may eat up to 6 eggs per week. Adult men may eat up to 8 eggs per week for men.
Wild game – This is good, but do not eat duck, goose, bison or buffalo. These are a little toxic.
Roasted almond butter - Preferably organically grown. Eat two tablespoons daily.
Roasted sesame tahini - Only that made with white sesame seeds (corrected on 11/3/18), or hummos made white roasted sesame seeds. Have 1 tablespoon daily or two tablespoons of hummos daily.
Goat yogurt - about 8 ounces per week. Other dairy products are all foods for occasional use only.
Goat meat and turkey – These are foods for occasional use and optional. Have a portion of each at most only once or twice weekly.
AVOID organ meats, all pig products and processed meats. These are more toxic and not needed.
Beans such as black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans and others are occasional foods only.
Lentils. At this time, lentils are not working well and we suggest avoiding them.
Blue or purple corn. Blue corn tortilla chips (or blue corn dippers or blue corn taco shells) are the best grain food for development. If you can get them where you live, this is best. Otherwise, look for yellow corn chips which are not as good, but have some of the chemicals needed for development. Other grain foods are not needed on the development diet and are not helpful.
Most adults need about five blue corn chips or dippers with each meal. They are easy to overeat, so count them out. If you are still hungry, add more vegetables or protein to your diet rather than eating more blue corn chips.
AVOID blue corn chips made with coconut oil. Coconut products are too yin and slightly toxic. See below if you have difficulty eating blue corn.
Other grains. These are not very good for development and should be eaten only occasionally. More specifically:
AVOID all wheat and spelt products and all refined grains.
AVOID all raw grain products such as granola, muesli and trail mix. Some food bars also contain raw grains.
AVOID all food bars and all food powders such as protein powders. They are difficult to digest, and usually bad food combinations.
Avoid rice and rice cakes. At this time, rice is not working well for people and we suggest avoiding it.
FATS AND OILS
For slow oxidizers. Do not add extra fat to your daily diet. There should be enough fat and oils in the daily diet. Foods that contain fat that are excellent for slow oxidizers are lamb, sardines, eggs, blue corn chips, dark meat chicken, almond butter, tahini and some organic ground beef. Please eat these foods or your diet will be too low in fat and unbalanced for development.
For Fast Oxidizers. Add 1 or ideally 2 tablespoons of extra fat per meal. Acceptable fats and oils are butter, cream, tallow, lamb fat, olive oil (but do not cook olive oil because it turns toxic), and a little of other vegetable oils.
AVOID coconut oil and avocado oil. They are too yin. Vary your extra fats and oils.
Natural sea salt. This is an excellent product and required on the diet. A preferred brand at this time is Hawaiian Bamboo Jade sea salt. It is sold via the internet. You may have this salt to taste. Hain is also a good brand.
Avoid all fruit, all sweets, all chemicalized food, and all sugars, honey and maple syrup. Also avoid most processed food. These interfere with development.
Eat only whole, natural foods. This means: NO protein powders, NO green drinks, smoothies or shakes, NO juices except 10-12 ounces of carrot or wheat grass juice away from meals, NO eggs whites only, NO Egg Beaters and NO food bars.
See the references at the end of this article for the reasons for these restrictions.
Drinking water. The best types of water to drink are natural spring water or carbon-only or sand-filtered only tap water if it is safe to drink in your area. Sparkling water (with bubbles) is okay.
Avoid distilled water, de-ionized water, and reverse osmosis water, as these contain very few minerals. Do not add minerals to water because it tends to unbalance the water. Also, avoid alkaline water. This is any water with a pH above about 8.8. These waters will make you feel better for a while. However, they are a fake way to alkalinize the body. For details, read Water For Drinking.
Bone Broth. This is a good source of minerals. However, the only one that is acceptable at this time is beef bone broth. The others may be contaminated with lead. For details, read Bone Broth.
Carrot Juice. This is another good source of minerals and other nutrients. Adults may have 10-12 ounces of carrot juice daily. As an alternative, you may have 1 or 2 ounces of fresh wheat grass juice up to twice per week.
However, do not have more juice than this, because juices are raw food and more yin. Do not have fruit juice, which is even more yin. For details, read Juices.
Tea and coffee. One cup of regular coffee and one cup herbal tea daily is okay, but not needed. Good teas are chamomile, hibiscus or lemon grass.
AVOID soda pop, alcohol, kombucha, other juices, and other beverages.
- Fresh food is definitely best. Eat frozen or canned vegetables only if you cannot obtain them fresh. Organically grown is also usually best. However, this is not too critical if you cannot find it or cannot afford it.
- Local food should be fresher, which is okay, but not necessary. Commonly, food at farmerŐs markets is sprayed, so be careful.
- Eating habits. Eat slowly, chew thoroughly, sit down when eating, and eat in a relaxed, quiet environment. Ideally, rest a few minutes before your meals, and rest at least 10 minutes after each meal. Avoid eating while driving, when upset, or in noisy places.
- Do not drink liquid with meals, other than a little bit needed to take your supplements.
Pressure-cooking. This is best for most foods. The main reason is that the food is most yang in macrobiotic terminology when prepared this way. This is a physics quality that means compact with faster motion of the atoms and molecules.
Also, pressure cooking is very fast, food tastes good, cleanup is easy, and it does not require fat or oil.
How to pressure cook. Rinse off vegetables. Then cut them either into:
- Bite-sized chunks (onions, carrots, broccolini, cauliflower flowers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, leeks and shallots)
- Thin slices (daikon, rutabaga, cauliflower stems, celery, golden beets, and ginger)
They can then cook together and will be ready in 3 minutes or a little less. We are at 6000 feet altitude and the proper cooking time is about 2 minutes 40 seconds. Use a second timer because it is easy to overcook food in a pressure cooker. With a pressure cooker, vegetables should retain their color, but be soft. If they turn grayish and look raggedy, they are overcooked. Pressure cooking grains and thick pieces of meat usually take longer.
Some foods are too delicate to be pressure-cooked, including ground beef, and ideally chicken, and fish. For more details, read Pressure-Cooking.
Other cooking methods. Other acceptable cooking methods are crock-pots or slow cookers and steaming. Do not cook often with oil, as this slows development. Do not bake vegetables in olive oil. This generates toxic chemicals that are very hard on the liver.
Salads and other raw vegetables are not recommended because they are much more yin and the body cannot extract much nutrition from raw vegetables.
Cooking ground beef (organic if you can find it). Meat is actually a delicate food, and certain zinc compounds are destroyed if it is overcooked. To cook organic organic ground beef:
1. Put about half an inch of water in the bottom of a pot or frying pan and bring to a boil.
2. Add the ground beef in the form of a patty that is no more than ¾ inch thick.
3. Cook on one side for about 15 seconds. Then turn it over and cook it on the other side for about 10-15 seconds. Then remove from the water, add a little sea salt, and eat. The meat will be rare or sort of raw in middle and that is okay. It should not be cold in the middle. Take GB-3 with your meat.
AVOID microwave ovens. Occasional deep-frying, baking, stir-frying, roasting or barbequeing is okay. However, do not use these cooking methods on a regular basis. The high heat generates toxic chemicals in the food.
Reasons for cooking:
A. Cooking reduces the amount of a few vitamins in foods. However, it greatly increases the availability of the minerals in food by breaking down tough vegetable and other fibers. The latter is far more important.
B. It increases the Etheric Energy of most food, and makes the food more yang. Both benefits are extremely important for development.
C. It concentrates vegetables, allowing one to eat more of the them.
D. It kills many bacteria and parasites on vegetables and other foods.
- Fresh, organically grown vegetables are best. Commercially grown ones are okay, too. The next best type right now are canned vegetables. Frozen vegetables appear to be least helpful for development, so do not eat them, if possible.
- Cook all vegetables until they are soft. This requires about 3 minutes or a little less in a pressure-cooker or 30-40 minutes in a steamer or crock pot. AVOID raw, crunchy or al dente vegetables.
Also, do not ever pressure cook vegetables for more than 3 minutes. This just overcooks them and destroys the chemicals in the food that we development requires. If the vegetables do not pressure cook in 3 minutes, they need to be sliced thinner. Vegetables that need to be sliced thinly are rutabaga, cauliflower stems, celery and golden beets.
- Eat 2-3 cups or 500-700 ml (volume) of cooked vegetables with each meal, three times daily. Measure the amount of vegetables you eat in the cooked state, not the raw state. This amount is needed to remineralize the body.
- Eat a small amount of 10 or more kinds of the vegetables mentioned above for each meal. Below are hints for doing so easily and quickly.
- When buying vegetables, ideally buy smaller ones because these tend to be more yang.
- Store vegetables in the type of plastic bags in one buys them. This will keep them fresher.
- Do not put much herbs or spices on your vegetables. Add seas salt after cooking. Vegetables have delicate tastes that you will come to appreciate.
- If you pressure-cook vegetables, drink the water in which you cooked the vegetables. Drink it 10-15 minutes before you eat your meal, or at least an hour after the meal, however, so as not to dilute the digestive juices.
- Ideally, cook vegetables for each of three meals. However, it is okay to cook vegetables just once or twice daily. They will keep throughout the day. Ideally, do not keep them overnight, although leftovers for one day are okay.
- Shop for vegetables at least once a week.
- Eat mainly the preferred vegetables listed above. Do not eat a lot of any other vegetables, including greens. They do not provide enough of the chemicals needed for development.
- We suggest eating some carrot, rutabaga and daikon with each meal. Also, try to have at least 3 kinds of onions per meal. The other vegetables can be rotated.
Peeling. Do not peel vegetables such as carrots, even if they are not organically grown. Clean them with a vegetable brush. However, remove the outer dried skin of onions and garlic.
MORE DETAILS ABOUT PROTEIN FOOD
- Eat protein two or three times daily. This can mean some protein with every meal.
One can also have protein with two meals, and then have a protein snack. This could be leftover chicken, two tablespoons of almond butter, sardines, a piece of cheese or one or two eggs.
- Have animal quality protein only twice daily. Twice daily is best for most people. Portion size for adults is 4-5 ounces or about 100-150 grams of protein food (not grams of protein) per serving.
- Lightly cook all protein food. Sardines in a can are already cooked and should not be cooked more. Organic ground beef is quite delicate and should only be cooked for 30-40 seconds. Do not pressure cook ground beef.
- Do not cook cheese.
- Protein must always be chewed well.
Specific Protein Foods:
Chicken. Chicken thighs or legs are the best parts for development. Avoid chicken breast.
Organic ground beef. This is an excellent food for development. This is a newer recommendation and older articles on this website may not recommend it. Organic ground beef is better for development than steak.
Adults need two 3 to 4-ounce portions of organic ground beef per week, very lightly cooked. The inside should be rare to raw. See cooking instructions for organic ground beef above.
Grass-fed beef is second best. Regular beef is not quite as healthful today.
Sardines. Most brands are okay. However, at this time, do not use Chicken Of The Sea brand. They are overcooked, for some reason. For more details, read Sardines.
Toasted or roasted almond butter (these are the same). When you buy almond butter, mix the oil into the butter to form a consistent mixture. Do not pour off the oil.
Eat it alone with a spoon or put it over vegetables as a topping. Eat the topping first, ideally, when you sit down to eat.
Beware of the expiration date on almond butter because it will go rancid and will taste bitter. Throw it away in this case. Some are making it fresh in a blender (you have to leave it running for several minutes) or in a Champion juicer.
Some stores allow you to make almond butter fresh. This is also good. Do not eat raw almond butter.
Roasted Tahini or hummus. Have one tablespoon daily of roasted sesame tahini or two tablespoons daily of hummos. It should be made of the white sesame seeds. Do not eat the brown or black seeds, which are somewhat toxic. Do not eat more than this amount of tahini or hummus, however, as it is quite yin.
Lamb. Eat 4-5 ounces of lamb once or twice a week. Lamb does not need to be organically grown. Lamb chops take about 3 minutes in a pressure cooker if you put a cut or two in it so it is thinner. They can also be cooked in a steamer. We do not recommend frying or broiling them.
If you donŐt like the gamey or lamby flavor of lamb, use ground lamb or lamb chops because they have less of this flavor.
The flavor is valuable omega-3 fatty acids, so try to get used to it. You could add a little herb or spice to cover up the flavor, if needed. However, do not use a lot of herbs in your cooking. They are too yin and some are a little toxic. For more details, read Lamb.
Eggs. Men may have only up to 8 eggs per week. Women may have only up to 6 eggs per week. Children may have fewer eggs, depending upon their size. Do not overeat on eggs, as many people do.
Cook eggs only the following ways:
1. Boil for only 3 minutes
2. Poach in boiling water.
3. Scrambled, but only if they are mushy.
Cage-free and organic are usually best.
Store eggs in the refrigerator. Never eat hard-boiled eggs or eggs that are hard such as in quiche, cake, pastries or other dishes. These are very difficult to digest.
Goat yogurt. This contains some of the chemicals needed for development. Have about 8 ounces per week. Other dairy products such as cheeses, kefir and milk are foods for occasional use only. They do not contain the chemicals needed for development. In one day, do not eat more than 4 ounces of all dairy products combined.
Wild game. Foods such as deer, elk, caribou and others are optional and good sources of protein.
Goat and turkey. If you wish, have up to two 4-5 ounce portions of goat meat or turkey per week. These foods are optional and not required.
Avoid duck, goose, bison and buffalo, as these do not work as well for development. Also avoid eating nuts and seeds. They are difficult to digest and for this reason damage the intestinal tract. Also avoid all protein powders, protein food bars and protein drinks.
MORE DETAILS ABOUT GRAIN FOODS
Blue corn. Eat about 5 medium-sized blue corn tortilla chips per meal. If these are not available in your area, eat 5-7 yellow corn chips with each meal.
We wish we did not have to recommend corn chips. Corn has a high glycemic index and some people are allergic to corn. The chips are somewhat greasy and salty.
However, we find the bodies require chemicals found in blue corn and the frying process actually locks in certain nutrients. Blue corn cereal, blue corn tortillas and blue corn crackers do not contain enough of the chemicals needed for development. For more details, read Blue Corn. If you are allergic to corn, this intolerance usually improves if you follow the development diet, which heals the intestines.
Warning about rice. All rice, even organically grown rice, is somewhat toxic. wE donŐt know exactly why this is so. However, at this time avoid eating much rice, rice noodles or rice cakes.
Avoiding all grains. Do not avoid all grains unless you donŐt tolerate them. When you can eat them, have the blue corn chips. They contain chemicals needed for development. If you cannot eat any corn, have some oats, millet or quinoa. However, these lack the chemicals needed for development, so do not eat them often.
MORE DETAILS ABOUT FATS AND OILS
Butter. For details, read Butter.
Cream. Fresh heavy cream is an excellent fat, especially for children, who usually love it and will eat vegetables if you put some cream on them.
Cream is best unpasteurized. However, it is okay if you can only buy pasteurized cream. Organic cream is usually better than standard cream.
Vegetable oils. Slow oxidizers should not add any vegetable oils to their diet. Fast oxidizers can use some olive oil or other grain or seed oils.
AVOID tropical oils such as avocado, coconut, and palm oils. They are too yin for development except for occasional use, even though they are nutritious.
MORE DETAILS ABOUT OTHER FOODS AND BEVERAGES
Sea Salt. Natural sea salt does not raise blood pressure when used in moderation. It provides many essential minerals. Celtic Salt is not quite as good because it is from a contaminated area of the ocean. For details, read Salt.
Quantity of food. Portion size will vary somewhat with each personŐs age, height and lifestyle. Eating more is okay as long as you maintain the correct proportions of food – about 70% cooked vegetables. Also, do not overload your stomach and eat the right foods.
Order of eating foods.
1. Drink water up to 5 to 10 minutes before eating meals.
2. Protein. Begin most meals with some protein. It is the most difficult type of food to digest. The stomach needs more time to work with it.
3. Cooked vegetables. Wait about five minutes after eating protein. Then eat cooked vegetables.
4. Blue corn chips or other starch. Wait about 5 minutes after eating cooked vegetables and finish the meal with about 5 medium-sized blue corn chips. If you cannot get blue corn tortilla chips, you may have yellow corn chips or a small portion of another grain or starch.
Proportions. 70% of each meal by volume (not calories) should be cooked vegetables. About 15% of so should be protein food. Fast oxidizers need one or two tablespoons of fat in addition to that which is in their food. Slow oxidizers should not need additional fat.
Food combining. The basis for each meal is cooked vegetables. With this, you may have one protein food and one type of grain food.
For example, do not mix meat and eggs at one meal, as these are both proteins. Also, do not mix rice and corn tortillas at the same meal, as these are both starches.
Adding natural salt. We suggest cooking food before adding salt. After cooking, add some sea salt to taste.
Seasonings and dressings. Refrain from putting a lot of dressings, sauces, relishes, sweeteners or spices on your food. A little is fine to flavor the food. Too much is yin, toxic will upset digestion.
Number of meals. Eat at least three meals daily. Do not skip meals. It is difficult to obtain enough nutrients eating three meals daily. It is even less possible if you skip meals.
If you are not very hungry, eat by the clock, if needed. Do not wait until you are hungry, as some health authorities suggest. If you are not hungry, still try to eat at least three meals daily.
Variety. Rotate your vegetable foods among the preferred vegetables listed at the beginning of this article. Also, rotate your proteins, and the brands of spring water you drink.
Leftovers. Freshly cooked food is best for development. You may have one day of leftovers. Making a large quantity of food and freezing it is not as good.
Soups and purees. Thick soups or purees are excellent ways to incorporate loads of vegetables into your diet. We donŐt recommend soups that are mostly water because they fill you up without providing much nutrition, and the water interferes with the stomach acid by diluting it. For more details, read Soups, Purees, Juices and Smoothies.
Fermented foods. Fermented foods are not needed for development. All of them are too yin and do not contain the chemicals needed for development. Many contain aldehydes, which are liver toxins. Those allowed as occasional foods only are a little sauerkraut, miso, yogurt, kefir and raw cheese.
Toppings. These are not needed. However, you can make Chinese-tasting vegetables such as chow mein, Thai-tasting vegetables with a little peanut sauce or curry, or Indian-tasting vegetables with a little mokni, vindaloo, sag or other herbal sauces as toppings. These are sold in health food stores.
Other simple, tasty toppings are almond butter, a little pesto sauce, a little hummus, or some grated cheese. For children, cream is delicious mixed with cooked vegetables.
Snacks. Ideally, do not snack, as it is hard on digestion. It would be better to have another small meal instead of snacking.
If you must have a snack, it can be a few blue corn chips, leftover vegetables and protein, a little almond butter, hummus, a few sardines or a piece of chicken.

Eating out. The rules are:
1. Eat in restaurants that serve fresh cooked vegetables and fresh meats. Chinese, Thai and East Indian restaurants often serve the most cooked vegetables. Mexican restaurants are not as good.
2. Ask the waiter to take away the bread.
3. Ask for triple portions of cooked vegetables and ask for the preferred vegetables (see the VEGETABLE section of this article).
4. Avoid fast food restaurants and some chain restaurants because the food quality is very poor.
We donŐt recommend eating out too often. If your work requires it, practice so that you can do it in a fairly healthful way.
Food for babies. Babies should ideally have breast milk until age 3 or even a little longer if they want it. Some babies need a little cooked vegetables and perhaps a little shredded meat after about age 6 months or later, depending on the quality of the breast milk. All of them benefit from a little runny egg yolk after about the age of 1 year.
If a baby cannot get breast milk or perhaps goat milk, use home-made formula. For the recipe, read Baby Formula You Make At Home.
Avoid all commercial baby formula. For details, read The Baby Manual.
