Roasted Beet Noodles With Pesto and Baby Kale

0-925347730-roastedbeetnoodles
For this recipe, I used a flavorful vegetable noodle (beet) and tossed it with some vegan pesto sauce and threw in some baby kale for a bit of crunch and earthiness.

This meal comes together so effortlessly and can be easily customized, depending on your appetite. The beet really pairs well with the pesto here and the kale ties everything together for more texture and flavor. Plus, it’s elegant, whole, unprocessed and fresh.

    Q: Have you heard that drinking beet juice with a table or teaspoon of black strap molasses gets rid of fibroids? Beet juice purifies the blood. But, this has to be done everyday.

    A: Beet juice is a great blood purifier and excellent for supplementary use. But in order to fully eliminate fibroids, you should consider performing the Fibroid Cleanse, as it naturally works to strengthen and purify the female reproductive system while helping with the reduction of fibroids.

    Q: I don't know if you remember or know, but there was a Vegan Couple that had a newborn baby, and the baby had died from what seemed to be a lack a of nutrients because the couple fed the baby a vegan diet. If you remember this, what do you think went wrong.

    A:

    The couple was from Atlanta! What went wrong is that while they were well-intentioned, they were ignorant, ignorant to true nutrition. They fed the baby soy milk, and soy milk does not contain nutrition. They didn't supplement the soy milk with nutrition which they could have done with herbs such as alfalfa, Irish Moss, Iceland Moss, etc.

    Q: How often should one eat cook food? I'm a vegan, I do not consume any meat, seafood, milk what so ever. I eat water cresses like everyday so as cook food. Like white rice with black bean sauce, spinach, and pasta at time's I'll eat some Chinese fried rice, veggie roll, steamed vegetables, any advice?

    A:

    You can eat cooked food as much as you like. However, try to incorporate as many nutrient-dense raw foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, raw nuts and seeds, into your diet to make sure you are receiving an adequate amount of nutrients.

    Q: I wrote to you a couple weeks ago asking if it was normal for me to have an outbreak only a day or two into the full body cleanse kit. You wrote back and told me that an outbreak is the body healing. It is two weeks later and I am still having an outbreak! Is this a good sign? Do you think this outbreak may continue on through my anti viral kit? I have been eating mostly fruits and vegetables, however I felt like I needed more substance and I was not enjoying my food at all... so I bought organic noodles and organic tomato sauce (sea salt only, tomatoes, no sugar, you get the point). Is adding some of this into my diet going to make the kits less effective or possibly not work?

    A:

    The outbreak is a result of your body trying to eliminate the toxicity and impurities from your body. Continue to follow the guidelines of the Cleanse.

    In regards to what you ate, YES, they make the cleanse less effective, so you may not want to eat much of cooked foods. Raw foods will optimize the cleanse. If you are having trouble staying full, try more healthy fats, like avocado, coconut cream, or raw nuts and seeds.

    Q: My baby and I have developed a bug! We've been in hospital since last night. My temperature is 41 degrees my baby's 37. We're both on a drip; getting antibiotics both are very dehydrated. All my family are blaming dherbs but I know better. Please send me something I can READ TO MY FAMILY AND REASSURE THEM THAT DHERBS IS NOT THE REASON. KIND REGARDS. GOD BLESS YOU

    A:

    I can assure you herbs do not cause what you are experiencing. A bug may be doctor's lingo for any healing crisis. However, a bug is not a form of healing crisis. If you would have suffered from anything herbally, those doctors would have told you. A bug is a so-called virus (in doctor's lore) but viruses do not exist. Virus means "poison" as in "poisonous blood" and herbs do not poison the blood but simply remove poisons from the blood. If your family wants to legitimately blame Dherbs, get a blood analysis done. But again, the doctors have told you that you developed a bug. They didn't say you had an allergic reaction to anything. From time to time we experience these problems with people but it's always limited to the person's specific case. Breast-feeding does not weaken the body. Toxins do not go into the breasts but exit via the eliminative channels. My wife performed the FULL BODY DETOX while breast-feeding our 2-month old son and absolutely NADA! I always tell people to deal with a situation and when they get back on their feet show people wrong by performing your desired cleanse successfully. You're not the first situation of this sort. Not at all! Hang in there, Love!

    Q: Thank you for the great advice! :) Our baby has had baby eczema since infancy; however it looks as though it is now getting worse. She has always been and continues to be breastfed; we have supplemented with formula and Gerber baby products once she was ready for solids. She is now eating foods such as oatmeal, whole milk (sometimes we tradeoff between that and baby formula), various fruits and vegetables, meats such as chicken, turkey and beef, pasta, bread, beans, rice, etc. She seems to be more interested in eating carbohydrates than anything else. Also, another question we have is pertaining to my wife's acne and melasma problem which she has had for several years since adolescence (acne) and since she started using contraceptives (melasma). She also has a few crow's feet around her eyes which she would like to get rid of. Do you have any advice and or recommendations for treating these problems? Once again, thank you for the advice and we greatly appreciate your help/suggestions.

    A:

    The baby's diet is unfortunately conducive to eczema. It is greatly acid-forming and needs to be changed immediately. For your wife, have her begin her healing journey by performing the FULL BODY DETOX.

    Q: My concern is that my baby isn't chewing and he's 2 years old. He does not like solids in his mouth so he spits them out or throws them up. Do you have any suggestions? He's also dealing with eczema. Will the oxygen olive oil clear up his skin? Also, I do work the tuning forks and I'm interested in learning chakra balancing with sound.

    A:

    Baby knows best! If baby doesn't want solids, give baby liquids. Now for eczema, I know we have an article or two up covering â€ECZEMAâ€. Please kindly visit our article section for these articles, as they are loaded with helpful information and remedies. In re: chakras, I am so busy these days that I don't do much teaching anymore.

    Q: Do you have any herbs for baby reflux? My daughter gives her baby boy soymilk. I told her soy milk makes mucus among other reasons. What other alternative for soymilk other than breast milk?

    A:

    Make a tea using anise seed and/or caraway seed, sweeten it with maple syrup, and add a little lemon and put in a baby bottle and give to the baby. However, remove the acid foods. Tell her to use hemp, almond, or rice milk. They are far better than soy milk.

    Q: I have a question for you. I love reading your articles and I was reading about the importance of iodine in a vegan diet. I am vegan and I'm scared I'm getting iodine and you wrote that seaweed would fulfill that need. Did you mean Sushi seaweed, the roasted nori kind? Or fresh seaweed? I haven't been able to find fresh seaweed anywhere, except for already prepared seaweed salad. Also, how would you suggest I use the roasted nori seaweed? In smoothies? Because by itself it does not taste good.

    A:

    No! Not fresh water seaweed. But seaweed sold in a health food store. One in a bottle. Try Dulse, Kelp, Spiriulina, or even Dherbs Iodine Phosphate formula.

    Q: My daughter of 21 months has developed what's called baby eczema on her both her arms near the elbows, her wrist, and face. We would really like to heal her from this condition. She itches, and it's hard to have her avoid this. Do you have any advisory for us in healing baby eczema? Btw, we're in Los Angeles as well. Do you have a storefront that we can visit?

    A:

    What is the baby eating (consuming) daily? Was she on formula milk? I would recommend giving the baby our BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC TEA to drink (add maple syrup and a lemon juice) in a bottle and apply HEALING SKIN OIL to her skin daily. Read our article entitled "ECZEMA" located in our "Articles" department. Good information!

    Q: I have a 7 month old baby girl name Neffera. I breast fed her for about 4 1/2 months. I have been giving her soy infant formula and really do not feel right about it. I also have been giving her the Gerber organic green beans, peas, applesauce, ect. She has a lot of congestion and mucus like I have never seen before ever in a baby. I am not sure what has caused all of this mucus, but I want to strengthen her immune system and feed her better. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Wow, Beloved! I'll tell you what caused all that mucus: the soy-based infant formula which is crap!!!! Plus, those baby foods. Gerber's is CRAP!!!!! You must undo the damage you unintentionally done via ignorance. Please read our article on "ALTERNATIVE INFANT FORMULA MILK" and learn to make alternative formulas for your baby. You must also start making your own baby food. You must do these things to reverse the serious harm you've done to your baby. All wrong can be righted by doing the right thing. I would highly, highly, highly recommend you schedule a 1-hour health consultation (only $100) a.s.a.p. There's just so much that needs to be explained to you so that child can make a speedy recovery. Time here won't allow it, so a consultation is best!

    Q: I read your article on Dangerous Dairy, and I cannot find on the internet any back up on what is discussed about dairy. Example, fecal matter (like milk), if this is not real fecal matter. What are you talking about? It is also stated that no other animals will drink other animals milk. This is not so, there are reports of baby animals, that lose their mothers and another species steps in to save the baby animals life. A dog saving a baby tigers life. A squirrel saving a pigs life, etc. It is a known fact that we have been eating dairy products for over 8,0000 years. I know that times have changed, but where are your facts were are you getting these facts to report such cause and effect? I would like to see this facts or websites. Thank you.

    A:

    Your problem may be the Inter-net. You can't be an exclusive Inter-net armchair researcher and expect to find everything, such as the information in my article. We can't give up on BOOKS for a computer screen!

    Everything I cover in my article can be scientifically backed up.

    Q: I am a woman who happens to be diabetic and now I am pregnant. I would like to know what foods I should eat and restrain from while I am still pregnant. I am also taking insulin to keep my blood sugar levels low enough as not to harm my baby. They are telling me I need to eat dairy and meat to meet the dietary requirements for a healthy baby. Please help me.

    A:

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. New life is such a wonderful thing!

    We recommend that you drink our Pancreas tea (1-2 cups a day).

    Eat plenty of cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Abstain from dairy products and meat products. If anything, eat meat-less (vegan) alternatives -- you can find plenty in our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual ($11).

    Eat plenty of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables. You can eat steamed vegetables and brown and/or wild rice (with vegan chicken if you like). Just switch meat for vegan products and switch to non-dairy products or dairy alternatives (which can be found in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle manual) in order to receive the necessary nutrition without any harmful side effects.

    For great nutrition for your baby, we recommend the following Dherbs formulas: PRE-NATAL FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS, and Iodine Formula.

    For natural sugar, try Stevia, Agave Nectar, and/or Grade B maple syrup.

    Q: I am the mother of a 2 yr old that suffers from eczema terribly. Not only does she have eczema she suffers from a host of food allergies. My baby also is very emotional and hyper sensitive. I have worked with herbalists in the past that seemed to help. Doing my research I learned that they were not really helping me but keeping my baby hooked on their remedies instead of teaching me how to keep my baby strong. I don't have a problem purchasing remedies, but this person was upwards of 200-300 per month. I am a single mother and cannot afford that. I have looked into your products and would like to begin my daughter on a regiment that would help her. Right now my daughter is suffering from severe itching of her legs, arms, everywhere and it happens mostly at night or when she feels she has not had her way. Help!!!!!

    A:

    All understanding of healing begins with knowledge and healing itself begins in the mind. See your child well and the child will get well. Check out our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL. Good reading! Please read our article on "ECZEMA" and "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" in our articles section. It's not so much about taking products but modifying the diet. Most children with eczema are fed a horrible and poor diet rich in meat, dairy products, refined grains, etc. that only exacerbates the problem. Rub the child's skin down with Shea Butter. Alternate with our HEALING SKIN OIL. The child's bed should be draped in the color blue, the antidote to the color red, the color of burning inflammation. bed sheets, spread, pillows, etc should be blue or light blue. I'd even paint the walls of the child's bedroom sky blue due to its soothing effect. It's a shame that some herbalists are only about the money. At Dherbs, we are all about education which is why our site is laced with so much information. Stay positive and optimistic!

    Q: Hey Dherbs.com I was wondering. Just the other night my friends baby had a temperature of about 104 and 105 degrees and she went to the emergency room and all those crap doctors gave was Motrin which is toxic and that did bring the temperature down but from a natural stand point how is the best way to bring down a temperature quickly and naturally because 104 and 105 is dangerous territory.

    Q: Baby has rash on his rear. I thought it was diaper rash, after a week I took baby to dr he said it was staph. I can't get r/x until late. is there a herbal rememady I can use?

    A:

    The Anti-Viral Extract would be the best thing for him to take. You can dilute the extract by adding it to his milk.  If you're breastfeeding, you can use the milk as a topical approach as it has healing properties as well.
