Quick And Easy Meals For National Fast Food Day

America is a fast food nation. All of the different fast food chains exist around the country and people are definitely not boycotting them. You saw those crazy lines at Popeye’s for the chicken sandwich, didn’t you? People continue to supersize meals and make combos, all the while raising cholesterol levels and impairing digestion. Fast food continues to be eaten because it is affordable, quick, and easy. Well, we have news for you. There are lots of healthy meals that are quick and easy to make.

 

We are changing the game on National Fast Food Day by avoiding fast food restaurants to make quick and easy meals that are delicious. These won’t be wrapped in paper or fried in grease; rather, they will be healthy, tasty, affordable, and easy to make! Most people don’t like to cook because it is time consuming. The prep work can take time if you aren’t used to cooking, which is why it may be beneficial to meal prep for the week. This isn’t necessary, but it can save you time when it comes to making food.

 

Another misconception about making your own meals is that it costs more. Cooking healthy food does not cost more. In fact, vegetarians can save more money than non-vegetarians! Here are several meals that take under ten minutes to make! And they are Full Body Cleanse approved!

    Q: Do you believe that one should eat 3 meals a day or 6 small meals a day? Sometimes I don't feel like eating 3 meals. Back in the day people would fast longer than 15 days and were healthy.

    A:

    I BELIEVE PEOPLE SHOULD EAT ACCORDING TO THEIR SPECIFIC LIFE STYLES ... THE LESS THE BETTER. FOOD IS KILLING US TODAY!

    Q: I also wanted to ask you....many of these kits or all of them I think include an herbal colon cleanser of some type....I'm one that doesn't use public bathrooms...talk about sickening..seriously somebody at my work has managed to crap on the wall in the past so needless to say I don't use bathrooms other than my own. Anyway my question is will these things make you run to the bathroom? or is it gentle enough I can make it 4-6 hours? Also if I were to order multiple kits are they ok to use all at the same time? Or is it suggested to use on then start on the other? After all I know the body can only get rid of toxins so fast.

    A:

    1. No, the colon herbs won't cause daytime need to defecate as you take them at night before bed.

    2. No, you cannot take all 3 kits simultaneously - too many capsules to take! You can take one at a time, but you can take them back to back.

    Q: How can I make the transition from cooked food, to raw food? Do you have any raw recipes for children? How can I get kids to eat raw?

    A:

    Children do as you do, so let the child see you eating raw food as well. Fruits are the best raw foods to eat, as they are naturally sweet. Purchase "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual", for the numerous raw food resources to assist you in this transition.

    Q: What's the best way to start on a vegan/raw food diet? I am not sure what to eat to make sure I would get a nutritious diet-you may not be able to go into that much detail but how can I get sample meal plans for breakfast, lunch and dinner incorporating this type of diet-perhaps there is somewhere on the web I find something like this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    A:

    If I do say myself, the best way to start a raw food diet is to be coached by me. I run a 6 month health coaching program that is 60-90 percent raw and 100 percent vegan/gluten free/ allergy free. You can find out more about my program at www.theveganeffect.com. I am running a special of half off my program if you sign up before march 1st. 

    Here are some other tips to get started.

    1: Join a raw food meetup group or community. Surround yourself with supportive people who can point you in the right direction. Try meetup.org or 30bananasaday.com 

    2: Read books like "beauty detox solution" by snyder, "80/10/10" by Dr. Graham., or "The Paradigm diet" by Adam Dave

    3: Start simple with breakfast. Always start your day with a green smoothie. read "Green smoothie revolution" by forget authors name at the moment. heh.

    A sample meal plan would be.

    Breakfast: Green smoothie

    Bridge: raw bar, handful of nuts or seeds, or fruit

    Lunch: Raw wraps made from collard greens. use a base of tahini, hummus, or nut butter. Fill with sprouts and colorful veggies

    Bridge: raw bar, handful nuts or seeds, or fruit

    Dinner: Raw pasta with a large salad

    Snack: Sorbet

    Q: I WANTED TO KNOW HOW DO YOU MAKE A SMOOTHIE ON full body cleanse? And can you not mix any of the food combined if it says not to?

    A:

    You can check our website for numerous great smoothie recipes.


    Ideally, to make a smoothie, use a base (some kind of fruit juice, water, or nut milk), add some frozen fruit or non-frozen fruit (your favorite fruit), add a little ice and BLEND (for about 1 minute)! Wa la ... you have a fruit smoothie!

    Q: I just purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and I have a question. I work a full time job (office work) and a part time job (cleaning). I'm worried if I will be able to work while doing the detox, I also workout (weight lifting) and with eating raw foods and no cooked food, I'm wondering if I will make it the 3 weeks doing this. I want to detox my body but I'm wondering if I can eat anything else (fish, chicken, baked of course). Can you give me some suggestions on what I can do or do you think I can do my normal things and still be on the detox?

    A:

    The human mind can make or break you based upon its conditioning! Just take the cleanse one day at a time and FIND OUT for yourself what the reactions will be. You're all in the future worrying! One day at a time! One day at a time! Take things one day at a time. Read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†because you're asking about cooked foods and prohibited foods (animal flesh) which the kit clearly states should be avoided for 3-weeks. Always THINK positive in life about everything. Your thoughts create your reality!

    Q: I know 2 people that have used the full body cleanse and the Anti Viral Kit and are now herpes free. I have recently purchased the Full Body Cleanse as well as the Anti Viral Kit. I started the Full Body Cleanse 2 days ago and I am already starting to have a breakout. Actually it is only my second outbreak ever (I had my first 4 months ago). Is it normal to have an outbreak during the detox this quick? My next question, your food guide says that you can eat raw food only during the detox. Would it be unacceptable to eat sashimi while taking the kit?

    A:

     

    Breakout means healing! The body is discharging via the skin, the largest channel of elimination. Keep up with the cleanse to achieve best results.

    Sashimi is not permitted in a raw foods diet, as it is fish. Read the article WHAT IS RAW FOODS on our site under ARTICLES.

    Additional food recipes are listed in our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual.

    The answer is no! Please read our articles "ACNE" and "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" in our articles section on our site.

    Q: When looking at the Food Combining Chart I was wondering if smoothies are not a violation of all of the "recommendations." If it is suggested that certain items not be combined, how can smoothies actually be "healthy" to our bodies aside from the absolute nutrition they provide? Although I make them all the time, are we not potentially setting ourselves up for trouble? Just wondering. Thanks in advance for your expertise.

    A:

    Hi! Thanks for the question.

    The food combining chart is a suggestion for "optimal" digestion. It suggests we should eat mono meals optimally. This is often impossible and there is no evidence scientifically for this method. I am not sure how it would be studied anyway.

    It is considered best to try to adhere to the rules to the best of your ability. However, mixing fruits and veggies as in a green smoothie is absolutely fine. The benefits of the nutrition you receive will out weigh any digestive disturbance that may occur. Feel safe to have green smoothies in your diet and cleanse.

    Hope this answers your question,

    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.

    A:

    The RAW FOODS diet is 50% of the FULL BODY DETOX! It won't work without following the diet!

    Q: Thank you for taking out the time to reply. What do you make of the opinions of opponents of consumption of mono-atomic gold, touting it as a secret mind-control serum and other such commentary?

    A:

    It's hogwash! The ancients used this stuff. If it was for mind control and brainwashing purposes, how many people do you know who can afford this stuff? It's too expensive for most people. They don't want people to use this stuff and become spiritually conscious. Don't you think they would promote something cheaper and that everyone can get access to or afford if they wanted to brainwash folks? Mono-atomic Gold is AWESOME! It is not for the masses!

    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: First off, thank you so much for your responses to my questions regarding my husband heart murmur and weed smoking. Secondly...I am on my third day of the Full Body Detox & it is challenging and invigorating at the same time.

    A:

    A few recipes are in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual.

    Use 1 cup of fruit juice (of your liking), 1 cup of frozen fruit (i.e. banana, strawberries, mango, etc.), 1 cup of ice (optional). Blend for about 30 seconds! Drink and enjoy!

    Q: I just left the doctor to get treated for a sinus infection and the nurse said my blood pressure was high. 132/100 then 130/98. I'm 35 yr old and this scares me. Over the years I have experienced erectile dysfunction and this has really damaged my confidence. I think this is related to this high blood pressure. I want to fast and stop eating all fried foods. I want to eat one meal a day or every other day. I'm just really scared and I need to do something fast.

    A:

    YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT TO DO. THE ILLUSION OF FEAR IS PARALYZING YOU. DO THE THING YOU FEAR AND THE FEAR WILL GO AWAY? REMEMBER, GOD AND FEAR CANNOT CO-EXIST. HAVE YOU READ OUR â€HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPERTENSION)†ARTICLE YET? IF NOT, PLEASE DO SO AND GET YOU SOME KNOWLEDGE. FEAR RESULTS FROM IGNORANCE, GOOD BROTHER. AND THEREFORE, KNOWLEDGE CAUSES FEAR TO DISSIPATE WHEN THE KNOWLEDGE IS ACTED UPON. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. GET THE KNOWLEDGE, HAVE FAITH, AND THEN ACT!

    Q: I will be starting a fast for Ramadan in August. What suggestions do you have for cleansing during fasting? I do not eat meat except, fish 1-2 times a week. I've been having problems with gas after eating, even fruits or veggies. I usually have 2-3 bowel movements per day. I am a 56 year old male with good health, except for my problems with gas, varicose veins and leg cramps especially during fasting.

    A:

    Cleanses for Ramadan should be LIQUID-based i.e. Liquid Full Body Detox, or perhaps drinking herbal teas i.e. Detox Tea. To combat or counter your gas (flatulence), start consuming Activated Charcoal (Carbon) 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily (anytime of the day you feel like it). Work on your colon too. We suggest you try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse to help this problem of gas.
