Spiritual Benefits of a Vegetarian Diet

You are what you eat! Bondage and liberation are states of mind. The mind, as a mass of vibrating energy, is limited by the constitution or condition of that energy. If the energy is heavy or inert, little can be done with it to produce the state of…Continue

Divinity: Sounds good. Enzymatic is a good brand. I also like Wild Rose, Botanica and St.Francis Herb Farm for their cleansing tinctures and formulas. 

Love and light

Uriel/Auriel: Check out this link - http://veganhealth.org/articles/bones

Bones can be calcium, Vitamin D and/or protein. I would suggest adding more dark leafy greens (i.e. kale, chard, spinach) to your diet daily and use a source of fortified plant-based mylk like organic soy or almond milk. Tahini or sesame seeds are a great source of calcium as well. Calcium-set tofu is also a great source too.

Vitamin D, you can get from the sun or you can take Vitamin D2 (http://www.botanicahealth.com/products/item.aspx?category=Immunity&...

Not getting enough protein can also cause bone issues. Make sure you are eating a few servings of either beans, legumes or tofu/tempeh a day to get enough protein for your body. Aim for at least a cup or so. You may also consider using organic brown rice protein in a smoothie to help get enough. Vegetables, nuts and seeds aren't good sources of protein on their own. If you want to get enough protein on a raw diet, you will need to eat several pounds of vegetables and fruit a day at least. 

Bones can also be affected by iodine intake. Make sure you are eating a source of iodine daily - iodized sea salt or seaweeds.

Take care

Well I am currently doing a "complete liver cleanse" by a brand 'enzymatic therapy" .. this will be my third day, I thought it wise to correlate it with the full moon, 'releasing' and all :) Haven't noticed any big difference yet, but gonna keep on.

Does anyone have any good recommendations of good brand 'cleanses' that I could do a series of? I really want to pinpoint each and every main organ in my body and thoroughly cleanse them as best I can!!

I've never had the brand of almond milk snowcone17 posted, only because they don't have that here in this town I live, BUT I do drink "almond breeze" almond milk and I love it!! I ne ver!! liked cow's milk, EVER. I could eat it with cereal or homemade chocolate milk but that's it! but the almond milk, I can drink it straight from the carton it's so good!! it tastes really good mixed with my ground flax too!

Comment by snowcone17 on September 25, 2012 at 3:43am

here is an alternative if anyone is vegan and misses milk. it taste just like regular milk but tastes better has 50% more calcium its gluten free and lactose free its 100% vegan. the only place i know that has it is nugget market if u have one of those were u live. here is the link to the homepage: http://www.califiafarms.com/

No problem Divinity :) I love to help!
I would say that it only take a few weeks at the most for your body to be rid of meat and other animal products after you stop eating them. The consciousness shift is instant however! Doing a cleanse does aid your body's process and the juice feast is a way to help prepare your body for a new phase in your life.
It does take your body 7 years to renew all of your cells though, so your best bet is to start now and in 7 years, you will be an entirely new vessel!
Your body changes very rapidly though and you should rest assured that any actual meat will leave your system very quickly once you stop eating it.

Thanks again Water Being :) Loved the site!! and MMmm they look SOO tasty.

Another question :) hehe Yes I'm full of them, Inquiring minds seek to know :)
in YOUR personal opinion, how does one rid their body of all the 'peutrified' meats that have been in one's body for their lifetime?

I was a heavy meat eater for YEARS. Do you think that after one stops eating meat, and does a good liver cleanse with the juice feast, that that is a sufficient enough way to rid myself of all the peutrified remnants of lifelong meat eating?

Comment by Water Being on September 22, 2012 at 7:31pm
Xidorn - Great to hear!

Divinity - Check out this site for dressings: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/category/salad-dressings

Also, I enjoy a dressing I make for kale and other salads:
1/4 cup of tahini (sesame paste)
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1 tablespoon of miso
1 tablespoon of dried dill
Water to thin it out to consistency. Blend it in a blender and then pour!
Comment by D1V1NITY on September 22, 2012 at 7:59am

Water Bearer~ thank you!! I'm definitely going to embark on the juicefeast alongside the cleanse :)
I actually read somewhere that cheese is addictive~ like people are really addicted to it! lol sounds crazy but apparently It's true .. I almost bought some goat cheese for a veggie pizza earlier, but after a good five minute contemplation I put it down! 

Onto another topic now, what would you recommend for a homemade natural flavorful and YUMMY salad dressing? I LOVE kale, absolutely LOVE it!!! but i'm so used to puttin fat free dressin on it, and I know the store bought dressing is HORRIBLE~ so really want to eliminate that and find a healthy substitude that will cover the kale's bitterness and compliment it enough to where I'll still love eating my kale salads :)
