Met up with some friends today and headed out to the Non-Gmo and Gluten Free Expo in downtown Vancouver.

My eyes truly got opened up today holy crap!!  No wonder people truly are confused about healthy eating!!!

It’s great to see people standing up and bringing out information on GMO’s and what they are about and products – whether packaged or fresh to the public.  If you don’t know much I highly recommend watching Genetic Roulette and GMO OMG – we truly need to be aware especially for our kids!!

You will see this sign on your food and it will appear on more foods in the future!

What really opened my eyes up today and actually sadden me for a bit until I realized wow I really am on a mission and love where I am at!!

image gluten freeThis Gluten free thing has gotten way out of hand, please don’t get me wrong – I know if someone has Celiac disease it is very serious.

I think though it’s the new way to sell package foods – it doesn’t matter that it has copious amounts of sugar, palm oil, canola oil to name just a few but so much is being labelled gluten free is kind of a joke.  I mean I know there is wheat in so many products that really shouldn’t be BUT they are processed products – I don’t care how much ‘natural’, ‘organic’ or other label they slap on it – it’s still processed even when labelled ‘Gluten Free’ and that is a good part of the problem.

Yes i know our crops are sprayed with Round Up – what you didn’t know that?? Watch the documentaries.  The best way to deal with that is eat way more whole foods, real foods and super foods from Mother Nature – notice there are no labels?  The more fresh and whole the better.

It’s been a busy start to the New Year for me but after today it has only shown me that I need to stand up and be louder – people are being fooled and their health is more important than that!!

Eat, Live & Be Real!!

Here’s to YOUR health

10 Days New

Have YOU heard of the 10 Day Transformation ?

The first thing you need to know is this is your best natural way to jump start your weight loss, reset your metabolism, increase your energy, stop processed food addictions, end bad eating habits, reduce or eliminate any joint pain, and achieve better health!

DITCH THE DIETING – There is a SOLUTION TO THE FOOD POLLUTION!!! You will not find this Whole-Food, non-GMO, Organic, Super Food, Detox Cleansing, Transformation equal anywhere on the planet! This is NOT supplements, starvation, processed, yucky tasting ‘meal replacements’!!!!!  This is the 10 Day Transformation with Purium.  Purium is short for Pure and Premium.

It sounds like it’s almost a miracle pill or quick fix but it’s not!!

There is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body!!!!  Just look around – our society is proving it!!

David Sandoval – author of the Green Foods Bible and Founder of Purium Health Foods is on a mission to help as many people as possible to better health – through Whole foods and Superfoods.  Real but convenient for the every day person, I mean lets face it life is busy and we often grab foods on the go that well aren’t very healthy.  What if they could be?  What if they could be so nutrient dense that your body starts waking up? Starts feeling better? Starts craving less processed or sugary or chemical laden foods?  What if you actually starting eating even less as your body is being fed properly?  What if you could stop counting calories? What if you could have more energy? What if you could have less digestion issues?  What if you could lower your food bill?  What if you could become more vibrant?  What if you could become more aware of when you eat?  What if you could wake up your taste buds for real foods?  What if you go let go of coffee or a caffeine addiction?  What if you could become more present?  What if you could start eating healthier? What if you could ditch the dieting?

What if………….

Yes the 10 Day Transformation can help with that BUT YOU have to be willing to do it, go through it and commit to it.

For some change can be hard, there might be 2 or 3 days that are uncomfortable or not fun – let’s face it – if you have been eating anything less than 100% organic, non-gmo real, whole foods you will have some crap in your body, and if you have been eating a bunch of sugar, caffeine and processed foods you will have a bunch of crap in your body.  Once you get through those few days (and they do pass fast believe it or not) the results and last few days are amazing.  You will feel great, you will eat less food, you will have more energy and more.

NO this is NOT hype, this is based on science, results and my personal results from so far doing 3 Transformations and embarking on my 4th?

Why you ask??

Good Question!!

Because I am human, I am not perfect, it was just the holidays, I ate some foods I probably shouldn’t have, I ate more cooked foods than normal and can feel it and I want to feel better – I want my 2015 to be the best year yet by looking and feeling great – the best I have looked and felt in a long time.  I am entering my 50th year – (ok I just admitted that to everyone and I realized I have lived half my life already) – and I am ready to take my health, body, life and living to another level and since I have already experienced the results from this I know it can get better.

Here is a preview after my last Transformation!!

Are YOU ready?? Ready to feel better, to feel great, to look great and to rock 2015??

Definition of insanity is to keep doing what you are doing yet expecting different results!!

My 10 Day Transformation Cleanse!!!!

 My 10 Day Transformation Cleanse!!!!

This is the third 10 Day Transformation Cleanse I have done this year – I keep doing them due to the results I am getting – it just keeps getting better!!

The biggest side benefit is weight loss but that is not my main reason for doing this.  It really is to detox and cleanse AND feed my body at a deep level.

Each day between what we eat, our emotions, the air we breath we in take various toxins.

This cleanse also allowed me to really look at when and how much I was eating – as I keep saying there is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body.  I realize how much I had been eating and really eating too much.  When I really am feeding the body, I eat less food – I paid attention to when I was actually hungry or when I was craving something to see exactly if it was a real hunger or a habit.  I also slowed down my eating so I could chew and enjoy my food instead of gulping it down, eating on the run or sitting in front of my computer.

It is also making me realize how important it is staying away from GMO foods – I can feel the difference.

But the increase in my energy levels – haven’t felt this good in a long time!!

Could your health, body or energy use a little improving??

What I like about this is it is easier to keep eating healthier – if each year you make a New Years Resolution to eat healthier, lose weight or get into better shape – then I highly recommend you having a look at the Purium lifestyle – only if you are serious about creating a healthier lifestyle and NEVER having to make those New Years Resolutions again!!

Raw, Live, Organic, NON-Gmo and now 17 products even Kosher!!!

Here’s to living a great, healthy lifestyle.

Hope to see you on the journey!!

Thanks for taking the time and please feel free to share this!!

How Much Raw Food is Enough?

How Much Raw Food is Enough?

www.jodiburke.com

Raw Foods

There is a lot of debate surrounding this subject. Some people say that you should go 100%. Others disagree. There are those who say that the only way to get the best from raw food is if you take nothing else but it. Other people say that a diverse diet composed of 50% to 70% raw food will do just fine.

Many things are open to debate in the raw food world. Take cacao for example, some people advocate its use and say that it is the answer to your chocolate cravings. Then again, there are those who say it’s toxic and that it’s better to stay away from it.

Whether you take cacao or not depends on your own decision and whom you listen to. The same thing goes for how little or how much your diet is composed of raw food.

 I personally believe that there are no rules to what percentage of raw food you should be taking. However, if there is anything you should be listening to, it’s your body.  We are all different, we are all unique and there is NO one perfect way for everyone.

Raw Foods

If your body is telling you that it can take more and that you can benefit from increasing your raw food intake, then go ahead. There are people who do well with 100% raw food diet. They see a great deal of improvement in their health from doing so. Many see it as a lifestyle, one that they cannot live without. It has become who they are and they cannot see anything other than taking it 100%.  AND chances are they live somewhere warm to hot and it’s easy to get fresh, raw (and probably totally organic) foods and its easier on the body when and where one is as far as warm weather is concerned!

On the other hand, some people benefit better from having a more diverse diet. It could be because their bodies cannot cope with some of the constraints of an all-raw food diet plan. Time and accessibility may also be an issue.

 If you are new to raw food and if you are wondering how much of it you should take, it is advised that you should only take the amounts that you are comfortable with. You can start with just a meal or two a day for a few days a week, or start the day with a green smoothie or substituting salads instead of fries. Some people need to ease into more- make little changes daily and build on it – don’t overwhelm yourself.

This is NOT a diet and should not appear to be restrictive – this IS a lifestyle – and one that will take you more in alignment with total health.

 Be sure to listen to how your body is reacting to your new diet. Take your energy levels into consideration. Figure out if you are getting a boost in your energy or if its making you feel bogged down.

Over time, your body will change and adjust. Soon, you may be able to live with a diet of up to 80% raw food. You may even be able to accommodate 100% on days.

The more clean foods you eat – even whole foods and or superfoods – the less dead, processed foods you will and your body will actually want or crave.

It’s better to have more real, natural food in your way of eating than not!  That is always the best choice over man made, processed, synthetic or chemical filled so called ‘food’s.  Think about that for a minute – what we now call food that was not around 20, 30 or 50 years ago

And now we have way more health problems…….it’s not rocket science!

Here’s a thought that may help you in choosing food – if it comes from a field, farm or forest choose it (with some exceptions of course like some mushrooms) and if it comes from a factory – stay away!!

www.jodiburke.com

Raw Foods

Adjust your raw food intake based on how your body is reacting to it. It is your best compass and the best way of finding out how much raw food is right for you. Keep things as natural as possible. Even if you do not go for 100% raw food, ensure that you still make healthy choices. Organic food items  AND NON-GMO will work well.

Don’t be so hard on yourself when it comes to making this decision. Keep in mind that you should always listen to your body. There are no fixed rules except nurturing and nourishment. Do what is best for you and the benefits are going to follow.
