VITAL: Vibrant Ideas and Tools for Awesome LivingHappy new year, Health-Seeker, and welcome to my very first official newsletter of 2012!

I've been busy cooking up new ways to serve you and offer affordable and effective ways to skyrocket your health and regain your zest and joy for life.

I know you're interested in natural healing methods and food based ways to improve your energy and well-being. As the year unfolds, you'll get to glimpse what I've been busy brewing behind the scenes.

How to Become a Nutrition Coach

If you're a health practitioner or would like to become active in coaching others to health through food and lifestyle, I'll (finally) be sending out information about an opportunity to work closely with me.

I have had so many requests for nutrition coach mentoring, and it's taken me a long time to respond because my desire is to provide guidance that's practical, effective, and fun to deliver.

Stay tuned.

If you'd like to be on the early notification list, please sign up HERE:

You'll get access to a webinar I conducted last summer and some special bonuses.

Plus you”ll hear the details before anyone else.

B4 Be Gone!

The B4 Be Gone Complete SystemIn addition to the nutrition coaches programs, I'll be announcing another opportunity to balance your blood sugar and get rid of belly fat, brain fog, and burnout.

The graduates of my first B4 Be Gone program have had tremendous results. One dropped 54 pounds, lowered her fasting glucose by 30 points, and is more energetic than she remembers being in many years.

You'll also enjoy an enhanced members website, more recipes, and many more improvements thanks to the feedback from our first B4 Be Gone graduates.

Watch your inbox at the end of the month for details and dates.

Creating Vibrant Health Feature Article

Pain and Inflammation From Food Allergies:
How to Live an “Itis” and “Algia” Free Life

By Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo


pain and inflammationI work with lots of people who suffer from the effects of inflammation in their body. When I work with clients, we work closely to identify and eliminate the causes so they can lead happy and fulfilled, pain-free lives.

Inflammation causes pain, stiffness, heart attacks, ulcers, and all diseases ending in “itis”.

The list of “itis” diseases is long. Here are just a few of the most common ones. You or someone you love just may be suffering from one of these:

  • arthritis
  • gastritis
  • colitis
  • thyroiditis
  • dermatitis
  • sinusitis
  • and many more…

Other diseases whose names end in “algia” are also caused by inflammation. “Algia” means pain. Among the most common “algias” are fibromyalgia and neuralgia.

What most people don't realize is that inflammation can be caused by what you eat.

Oh! Mega Trouble!


Omega-6 Foods and InflammationSome foods are inherently inflammatory. These include many fats in the omega-6 family.

There's a particular omega-6 fat that's especially inflammatory called “arachidonic acid“. It's found in commercially raised meats, poultry, dairy products, eggs, peanuts, and many hydrogenated oils.

An imbalance in omega-6 to omega-3 fats creates inflammation. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is very imbalanced when it comes to omega-3 and omega-6 fats.

The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats ideally should be 3:1 or less. The average American has a ratio of 12:1 or higher. That's a big part of why so many of us suffer from inflammatory diseases and why heart disease and cancer affect such a large percentage of the population.

What most people don't realize is that even most people on a “healthier” diet, including vegans and raw fooders, have an imbalance of fats that sets the stage for inflammatory diseases. The imbalance of fats is due to their widespread use and consumption of vegetable oils, grains, and nuts.

Put a Fork in the Road of Inflammation!


Healing inflammation with your forkYour fork can be a powerful weapon or a mighty healing tool. It all depends on what you put on the end of it.

In coming issues and blog posts, I'll explore how to balance the fats in your diet to heal inflammation and protect yourself from inflammatory diseases.

In the meantime, you can't go wrong by eating a fresh diet loaded with green vegetables, sea vegetables, and omega-3 rich chia, flax, and hemp seeds.

What many people don't realize though is that even healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds can cause inflammation WHEN you develop an allergy to them.

Food Allergies: Potholes on the Path to Healing Inflammation

On the Vibrant Health Solutions Radio show “The Pain of Undiagnosed Food Allergies,” I reviewed one of the very important AND controllable causes of inflammation – Food Allergies!

If you're suffering from chronic health symptoms in spite of all your attempts to control them naturally and/or using Western medical approaches, I suggest you listen to the replay for a wealth of information.

On the radio show, I explored the relationship between pain and food allergies and discussed ways you can identify and eliminate triggers AND heal the underlying causes so that “innocent” foods no longer hurt you. If you've been suffering from chronic pain; digestive upset; weight that just won't go away; or other vague symptoms like depression, brain fog, or fatigue, you owe it to yourself to listen in.

https://drritamarie.com/radio/2012/01/the-pain-of-undiagnosed-food-allergies/

Not Sure if You Have Food Allergies?

I recently hosted a teleclass where I shared the details about an exciting new program I'm offering to guide you to identify and eliminate food allergies that may be causing inflammation in YOU. You'll learn how to heal the underlying dysfunctions in your gut and immune system that caused you to become allergic to what you eat.

If you missed the teleclass you can register for the free recording here:

https://drritamarie.com/go/TurnFoodAllergiesInsideOut

If the teleclass message resonates, you just may consider joining me for my brand new, fully coached “Food Allergy Spy Training” program. I'll guide you to identify all your trigger foods, heal the underlying immune and digestive issues that are likely at the core of your problems, and help you start to feel really good again.

The FAST Way to Heal Allergies and Inflammation

FAST: Food Allergy Spy TrainingThe Food Allergy Spy Training (FAST) program is one of a kind. Up until now, identification of food allergens was expensive, time consuming, and confusing. I'm eliminating a lot of the confusion and guiding you through the Gold Standard for identification of food allergens – the Food Elimination Provocation Process (FEPP).

The FAST program will guide
you to become a super sleuth detective by training you to carefully observe changes in your body around food choices.

http://www.FoodAllergySpy.com


Food allergy tests are fraught with error and are very expensive. For a fraction of the cost of a comprehensive food allergy test, you can reliably determine what foods may be triggering you to feel unwell.

The FAST program starts next Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 and the dozens of people who've jumped onboard have already gotten a head start on the first two assignments designed to help you identify potential food triggers.

I would love the opportunity to get to know you and guide you to start the new year on a great path to new-found wellness of a magnitude you could only imagine before now. Because this is the first offering of the Food Allergy Spy Training program, it's very affordable to participate in this live group program!

For a limited time only I've slashed the price by $100 to make it easy and affordable.

http://www.FoodAllergySpy.com


Imagine an “Itis” and “Algia” Free Life!

  • freedom from food allergy inflammationImagine how it would feel to know you're handling the cause of your ill health rather than trying to treat the symptoms.
  • Think about how it would feel to know that the food you eat will no longer mistakenly trigger and over-activate your immune system.
  • Step into how it will feel to experience freedom from food allergy associated conditions like depression, headaches, poor digestion, fibromyalgia, or fatigue.

If you'd like to stop imagining how it would feel to be well again and make vitality a reality for yourself through a 30-day process, I hope you'll join me.

Let's balance your omega fats, identify your trigger foods, and turn your fork into a powerful tool for healing and health so that you can enjoy a life of vibrant living!

How To Spend Less On Groceries & Still Eat Healthfully


Guest Article by Raederle Phoenix from The Vegetarian Health Institute


How to Spend Less on GroceriesWould you like to spend less on groceries, while still eating a healthy diet? If so, this blog post can save you a few hundred dollars over the course of the next year.

Some of my suggestions are only relevant for raw fooders and raw food recipes. But some apply to folks who eat cooked food too.

Recipe Substitutions

The following are recipe substitution suggestions that will work for almost any recipe. But of course, use your judgment and consider the impact the substitution will have on a recipe.

When a recipe calls for…

  • Dried fruit: Use the cheapest unsweetened dried fruit, which is usually raisins. Raisins have a much stronger flavor than dates, so if the recipe calls for dates, make it half and half with dates and raisins.

  • Frozen fruit: Substitute some of the frozen fruit with frozen bananas. To freeze bananas, peel them and break them into pieces and put them in your freezer in a bowl or on a plate.

  • Fresh fruit: Use what is in season and can be bought at a low price at your local farmer's market. If it is peach season but the recipe calls for mangoes, use peaches anyway.

  • Frozen vegetables: Use the least expensive frozen vegetables. The kind of vegetables generally won't matter much, unless it's a particular vegetable you dislike. If you prefer organic, select the least expensive organic frozen vegetables.

  • Nuts: Substitute part of the portion of nuts with coconut shreds. In some recipes, as much as three-quarters of the nuts can be replaced with coconut shreds without much change to flavor and consistency. Make sure you use some of the nuts that the recipe calls for, however. Different nuts may have very different effects. Almonds and Brazil nuts are both unique and offer very particular flavors. Walnuts and pecans are sometimes interchangeable. Macadamia nuts and cashews are often interchangeable.


Avoiding Certain Recipes

Many recipes are out-and-out expensive no matter how you substitute. When selecting recipes, one can scan the ingredients and get a feel for how much it's going to cost.

When selecting recipes to try out, avoid recipes that call for…

  • A large amount of a specific brand-name ingredient.
  • More than a quarter cup of nuts. (Unless using coconut shreds to cut the cost.)
  • More than four cups of a non-dairy milk.
  • More than two cups of a non-dairy yogurt.
  • Large quantities of an exotic fruit that is imported from far away.
  • More than two spices you don't already own.


Avoiding Waste

Another way one can save is by avoiding waste. Sometimes when we don't know how to preserve something we use trial and error and learn the hard way.

How to preserve extra fruit salad:

  • Option 1: Add fresh squeezed lemon juice to the fruit salad. Use one lemon for every two cups of fruit salad remaining. Put in a dish with an air-tight lid and store in the fridge.

  • Option 2: Put in the freezer to turn into pudding, smoothies or ice cream later in your food processor or blender. May also use a masticating juicer using the “blank” to create ice cream from frozen fruit.


What to do with pulp after making juice at home:

  • uses for vegetable juice pulpOption 1: Add vegetable pulp to soups, breads, or salsa (add minimal amounts to salsa). Add fruit pulp to muffins, pies, breads, soups or salsa. (Be careful not to add to much. Pulp is almost pure fiber!)

  • Option 2: Compost. Pulp breaks down fast and makes great fertilizer for your garden or for growing wheatgrass indoors.

  • Option 3: Add seeds, nuts, oats, coconut shreds, spices and/or oils and blend in your food processor. Spread in your dehydrator at 110 degrees to make raw crackers, or put in your oven at a low temperature with the door slightly open to gently slow-cook crackers.


How to preserve extra cooked grains or grain-like dishes such as quinoa:

  • Option 1: Store cooked grains in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to two days.

  • Option 2: Store cooked grains in a container in the freezer for up to a week.


To keep nuts, dried fruits and other “shelf-stable” foods fresh and away from bugs:

  • Option 1: Store in ziplock bags within air-tight containers.

  • Option 2: Store in the fridge in bags or containers.

  • Option 3: Store in the freezer.


Leftovers & Wilting Produce

Save Money on Raw Food Eating
Another way to avoid waste is to “refurbish” your leftovers or wilting produce:

  • With greens, such as chard, kale and spinach, you don't want them wilted as a salad, but they are fine to throw in soup.

  • Mushy over-ripe fruits are great in smoothies and desserts. Just cut away any spots that are really bad, and use the rest. Fruit can sometimes be bought “mushy” at a discounted price at farmer's markets.

  • Quinoa, rice, millet or other similar foods that have been cooked, stored, cooked again, and stored again can be turned into a new meal in a vegetable stir-fry.

  • Over-ripe or drying-out citrus fruits may be juiced with an electronic juicer or a hand-juicer. The juice may be enjoyed plain, added to water for drinking, fruit salad for extra punch, or added to a dessert. If using an electronic juice, one may add cucumber, celery and/or carrots. (Carrots and oranges sometimes taste bad together.)

  • Peppers and herbs that have been left out to dry, or dried in a dehydrator can be crushed and put into spice jars.

Nothing Sexy about Digestive ProblemsDigestive problems are practically an epidemic in today's world of fast food, antibiotics, and hormone fed meat. Low energy, digestive troubles, brain fog, and sinus problems are just a few of the many health woes people suffer.

According to Hippocrates, the father of medicine, “All disease begins in the gut.”

Digestive disorders are more than just a nuisance. They are downright dangerous. Chronic gut issues can contribute to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, suicide and a host of other serious conditions.

So how do you know if you have digestive issues that need attention? If you're bloated, gassy or have gut pain, it's obvious.

This week, Dr. Ritamarie reveals the more subtle symptoms of digestive issues and the root cause behind them.

It's not what you think!

The Pain of Undiagnosed Food Allergies
with Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo – Thursday, January 12th, 2012


Click HERE for the show!

Pain of Undiagnosed Food AllergiesUndiagnosed food allergies, even to highly nutritious foods like broccoli or blueberries, can induce immune responses that leave you ill.

Here are some scary facts:

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) approximately 3 million children under age 18 suffered from food allergies in 2007. And the incidence is rapidly rising.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reports that more than half (54.6%) of all U.S. citizens test positive to one or more allergens and food allergies affect approximately 6% of young children and 3 to 4% of adults in the US.

And these are the diagnosed cases. Many instances of food allergies go undetected, manifesting as chronic symptoms that don't respond to conventional approaches.

If you're tired of being tired, unfocused, and uncomfortable, or if you're sick of the weight that just won't budge despite your best efforts, you owe it to yourself to explore whether food allergies are contributing to your ill health.

Join Dr. Ritamarie and learn how to become energetic, happy, and productive once more.

Recipes that Recharge

Wrap Yourself in Comfort!

By Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo


When winter is here, we all reach for our “comfort food” favorites: bread, crackers, chips, and cheese. The only trouble is that though we may enjoy a short-term emotional hug, we put a long-term physical squeeze on our health when we expose our bodies to processed ingredients.

Thankfully, there are foods and techniques that will both soothe AND nourish your body! Today, we invite you to enjoy one of the recipes from Dried and Gone to Heaven.

Zucchini Pepper Wraps
Yield: 12 wraps (6 servings)

red yellow and orange peppers raw food pepper wrapsIngredients:

  • 6 cups chopped red, yellow or orange bell pepper (about 6)
  • 6 cups chopped zucchini (about 4 – 5)
  • 1/2 cup avocado flesh (approximately 1 medium)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole unrefined sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons psyllium powder
  • 1 pinch cayenne, to taste

Directions:

  1. In a high-powered blender, purée the bell peppers and zucchini until smooth.
  2. Add the avocado, nutritional yeast and salt, and blend again.
  3. While the blender is running, add the psyllium powder and blend well.
  4. Use 1/2 cup of the mixture for each wrap.
  5. Time saving tip: Fold a Paraflexx™ sheet in four to use as a guideline. Measure out four “plops” at a time, placing them in the center of each quadrant. Use an offset spatula to form four flat disks. Each disk should be about 6 1/2 – 7″ in diameter and should not quite touch each other. This mixture tends to “seize” the longer it sets, so spread the wraps into disks quickly.
  6. Dehydrate at 110°F for about 4 hours or until you can easily remove them from the Paraflexx™ sheets.
  7. Turn the wraps onto mesh dehydrator screens. To prevent the edges from curling, place an additional mesh screen on top of each tray of wraps.
  8. Continue dehydrating another 3 – 4 hours until dry but still flexible.


Storage and Handling Tips:

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to two months. If the wraps over dry and become brittle or crispy, mist with water and dehydrate for an additional 30 minutes or until softened.
