And don't forget cut sugar to a minimum. The brain needs sugar to function and a low blood sugar level might in fact lead to brain damage.


As my late grandma used to say: "Everything in moderation";

to which I would like to add: Listen to your body and LOVE yourself just the way you are.

    that middle recipe looks interesting. Sounds better than the one you said in my blog, just boiling cilantro or something like that. What are field cucumbers, just regular cucumbers? I want to be more alkaline so I will try it. and yes, I always try to get my dark chocolate for the day!! also, I am with David. Even though I know we should drink a lot of water, I think 8 glasses is exaggerating it. I get a few plus juices , maybe adding up to at least four glasses a day.

    Regular Cucumbers: Those are the regular ones and not the ones grown in hot houses. When you suffer from "water retention", drinking water helps to banish it. I know that it sounds strange, but it is true. :-)

    Su, I like the sound of these, but I have to say I NEVER EVER drink water or any other fluids other than a few cups of tea per day...David

    I love chia seeds!! I mix them in with my quinoa salad for lunch most days. Yum :) Hemp seeds are also super healthy. Thanks for the interesting info, Su!
