Better Choices

Choose positive friends over negative relatives.

Choose wine over beer. Wine is raw! Wine is simply the product of grape fermentation. Beer is brewed (cooked)! I have experienced that an occasional glass of wine does not break or hinder the Sunfood "high." Beer, however, always snapped the spell and I gave that up years ago. Choose organic wine containing no added sulfites.

Choose dandelion over iceburg lettuce. Commercial iceberg lettuce contains very little nutrition. Dandelion is a wild food which contains a full complement of minerals.

Choose yams over potatoes. Potatoes are genetically weak, hybridized foods. Yams are closer to the wild state; they contain far better nutrition.

Choose raw corn over corn chips. Have you ever eaten raw corn? We call it the "raw corn revelation." Even though it is a hybrid food, a little white sweet corn in the summer time is beautiful during the transition process.

Choose ocean water or dulse seaweed over salt. Taste ocean water or dulse seaweed with lime, with tomato, with avocado! If any sprinkled salt is to be used, consider using highly mineralized celtic sea salt.

Choose dried fruit over candy. Dried fruit is filled with natural sugar which the body can recognize. Candy contains refined sugar which the body does not recognize and which acts as a powerful behavioral drug. Eat green-leafed vegetables with or following dried fruit to clean the teeth.

Choose dates over honey. Because most farm bees are cruelly treated and have their honey (food) taken away and replaced with sugar-water and antibiotics, I do not recommend honey. However, those with problems with bread addiction may find relief by spreading raw organic cruelty-free honey on their bread. The enzymes (amylase in honey) will begin to predigest the bread starch.

Choose dates and almonds over chocolate. To conquer addictions to chocolate, replace chocolate with dates which have had their pits removed and a raw almond inserted. I had an encounter recently at one of my seminars with a woman to whom I recommended this months before. She had such success eating date-almond balls instead of chocolate that she actually decided to adopt The Sunfood Diet!

Choose dried prunes over dates. If you feel dates are too sugary or too strong, switch to dried prunes. If dates are eaten, they should be eaten in the fall and winter when they are in season. As far as dried fruit is concerned (while you are in the transition stage), prunes are a better choice than dates.

Choose dried figs over raisins. Raisins are great, if they have seeds! Without seeds they are hybrids (seedless). Dried figs are full of crunchy little seeds that compliment the taste and encourage thorough chewing.
