Wait, no peanut butter?

I spent a good portion of my morning getting my mind blown about the super foods that were now deemed super bad. The bad list: tomatoes (just the pulp is okay), beans (lectin), wheat bread and grains (fattening cause it makes you crave sugar and other bad Microbiota, meat (antibiotics in the meat passed through), and worst, peanut butter and cashew that…are not nuts (more lectin poisoning), but come from a fruit [thanks, Keaton].

Super take-aways: Eat 70% cacao, drink lots of coffee, and drink olive oil (but not with that bread!) I’m still gonna eat baguettes – I don’t care.

Here are some alternatives he’s written about, and we’ll see if they go on my list of consumables.

So the point is – intestine health requires less poisoning and deteriorating by GROWING a good microbiota environment down there with prebiotics (more research to come) not worthless probiotics that just die.

“Peanuts contain anti-nutrient lectins:
Legumes such as peanuts contain anti-nutrient lectins. These are sticky proteins which are almost impossible to digest. Lectins have been shown to strip away mucous from the small intestine, which is one of the main culprits and cause of many autoimmune diseases like IBS, Crohn’s, colitis, thyroiditis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and arthritis. Now, it is true that most foods contain lectins, however certain foods have a high concentration of this substance (such as legumes and grains). Legumes also cause “Leaky Gut” which leads to increased inflammation in your gut.”

Avocado Farm Report 15 April 2012

This is our start. These seeds are huge and have already sprouted nicely. This makes for an exciting science experiment because these start to grow pretty quickly and look amazing.

Oui, she has a French name too.
I want to say I started growing this seed in the Summer of 2011, because I had lots of time. That’s after I was finding myself hanging around the HEB guacamole counter samples all day. So I also realized my love for the color of fresh avocado. See living room wall paint below.
