HOW TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM (cultured food class part 2)

Video Transcription:

Speaker 1: Okay cool, so what I’m going to do now is what the whole class was kind of inspired by is just this keifer. On this island, guess what!

We pay $22 for 16oz. Well you’re supposed to take 1oz a day and all that, well, (blows raspberry) I’ve been knocking back those bottles, but then I thought, wait a minute. This is kind of a waste, when I could make these. This is 3$. And the jar is another dollar and the lid, so that’s $4. You know?

So those are really really water rich coconuts, those are the water ones; there’s no meat in there. So when you have the meat, you have less water. So in those ones here, and I’ll just show everyone on video, in case, for those of you who didn’t get the introduction. Here’s the little coconut. So three of those, those are a dollar at the coconut stand and that filled up this jar. In fact, this is more like really two. So this is like $2; so $2, and then, where is my- I left my probiotics at home, so I will be, I’m going to save this one, just in case. And I got these little ones here.

Video Transcription:

Dan McDonald: Rock it out. Yes. Dan McDonald, Oakland, California. The Life Regenerator, baby. How are you doing? Everybody always asks me, Dan, which one’s better the Blendtec or the Vitamix? We’re going to find that out right now today folks. We’re doing a cool ass food class. It’s more of a spiritual class. These guys are sucking the light right out of me. Not the life, the light. I told you, all you’ve got to see is that little red light, baby, and it’s on, because I’ve got to be world-wide, famous, big time, energized. Can you dig it, baby? » Read More

Raw Recipe: Mung Bean Salad

Hey it’s Dan. I made this salad for a dinner party the other day. It was off the hook delicious and everybody loved it!

First, soak mung beans for 24 hours and sprout another 24 hours rinsing every 8 hours or so. Mung beans are inexpensive, loaded with living amino acids, have a great texture and are delicious. Mung beans are easy to work with and a great seed to start your home sprouting practice. Sprouts are living, biogenic (life giving) foods. » Read More

Life Saving Winter Veggie Tray With Power Dip:

I just made this and it’s great…

1 cup Puradyme natural protein powder

  • 2 tbs. flax oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup dulse seaweed
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 2-4 tbs. lime juice
  • 1/2-1 cup of water for desired thickness

Blend everything in blender and pour into a bowl…

Use warming grounding winter vegetables like:

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Bok Choy
  • Cauliflower
  • Zucchini

Let your veggies warm up to room temperature during winter time. Pull them out 20-30 minutes before you start making the dip.

The amino acids in the Puradyme protein powder are good for bringing balance to the brain. Use regular hemp protein if you don’t have Puradyme. I love the Puradyme natural protein because it has a protease enzyme added to aid in utilization of the amino acids and a proteolytic probiotic to aid in digestion of the proteins.

This protein practically digests itself. I have really come to appreciate protein and finding high quality vegan sources is important for maintaining balance and stability. I actually gained about 10 pounds of healthy weight after I ate 2 bags of it in one month period. I was also hitting the gym 2-3 times per week.

This recipe above is very grounding and nutrient dense for when you need a heavier high fiber meal to feel satisfied or you need some extra omega 3 for the brain and nerve nourishment and the protein for muscle growth or brain balance.

This recipe will create warmth and heat in the body. Enjoy. I have a lot coming down the pipeline so always check emails from me as that is how I will be communicating for a while.

Talk soon. Go with the flow. Aloha.
