Most grandmas are notorious soup makers. Mine certainly was. Maybe their secret was this helpful chart from Shape.com. The premise of soup-making is the same: stir-fry aromatics at the bottom of the pot before adding heartier ingredients and topping it off with broth. A few of these recipes contain meat, so be sure to swap them out for beans or other vegetarian protein.
Q: Hetep, I've been a vegetarian for about two year's now, have not consume any meat since, but recently I begin eating shrimp, I don't drink milk, eat cheese, fish. I want to be like a vegan but, is it an issue with me eating the shrimp, and another thing I smoke weed heavy, is the smoking affecting my vegetarian diet.
Q: I purchased the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN kit. I began taking the regimen of capsules. For breakfast I had water and a banana. For lunch I ate a homemade vegetable soup (chicken broth and veggies). By 2:00 p.m. I began to regurgitate profusely. What did I do wrong? Should I expect to be physically ill after taking the capsules?
Chicken broth? That's animal-based! No animal products, Beloved! If you continue to vomit lower the dosage of the capsules from 5 down to 2 or 3 (for a few days and then work yourself back up).
Q: I just began the cleanse. My concern is that I am not getting enough protein. I have been eating nuts, and I will not eat uncooked beans or peas. What can I do to get more protein while I am on this 20 day regiment?
A: Great question. There is protein in a lot of the vegetables that we eat. Think about it like this, elephants are vegetarians, and they are some of the biggest/strongest animals around. Eat plenty of leafy green vegetables (kale, spinach, etc.), goji berries, nuts, broccoli, avocados, beets, cauliflower, and asparagus.
Q: I just purchased the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and today is my first day. I'm unable to get through on our inquiry line. The diet isn't completely clear to me. Although it says miso soup is ok, I'm unclear on other things. For instance, is tofu ok? What about hummus? What do sprouted grains consist of? Would Eziekial sprouted grain breads and tortillas be ok? The miso soup is the exception to the dietary rule! NO tofu, NO Ezekiel grain breads (no processed grains at all). Sprouted grains are grains (or seeds) soaked in water overnight and consumed. They are not cooked! Hummus is okay (as it's not cooked).

Q: What can cause an oval shape lump about an inch long on my ribcage? I work out, and do farming. I only eat fish sometimes as meat. Can you explain what this could be?
It could be a hernia! It very well may be. Please read our article "Hernia" on our Home Page and/or in our articles section.
Q: What do you tell someone that believes that eating meat is better than eating products not made of meat such as wheat pasta, brown rice, etc. My wife eats way too much meat, and she always says that she needs it for the protein. She doesn't work out or exercise regularly so I see it as just an excuse to continue the same old behavior. She's 5'6" and 205lbs and I think she should weigh 140 - 145 max. She's 43 years old and suffers from high blood pressure and swelling in the legs.
We provide you with all the ammo you need in our free articles. Read the articles WHAT IS MEAT?, PROTEIN PROPAGANDA, THE DANGERS OF EATING MEAT, etc. You'll have all the ammo you need to counteract or retort any meat-eater's argument about eating dead animal flesh!
Q: Is necessary to continue food combining after completing FULL BODY DETOX in 20 Days? For example can you consume sweet fruit with sub acid & acid fruit also starches and vegetable (beans) proteins together? I learned in Nutrition that starches (rice) and beans are complete protein when combined together that our body needs. Are you at risk for protein deficiency if consuming vegan diet?
IT'S YOUR CHOICE! OF COURSE IT'S BEST TO CONTINUE TO DO SO. IT'S UP TO YOU, BELOVED! I PERSONALLY DON'T RECOMMEND IT. NOT TRUE! YOU CAN'T GET PROTEIN FROM COOKED FOODS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE FOOD IS. OF COURSE NOT, UNLESS YOU ARE IGNORANT TO PROTEIN, REAL PROTEIN, HOW AND WHERE TO GET IT.
Q: What is the best supplement (protein or herbal) to take to help build muscle for strength training and bodybuilding? All these protein powders on the market I've stopped taking because of all the sugar, whey and casinete; among other weight (fat) inducing ingredients.
Try Vegan Protein on our site. It's all natural and 100% absorbable! You'll find it beneficial. There's a capsule and a powdered version. Take both if you're really into protein.
Spirulina is the BEST individual natural source of protein (75% bio-protein)!
Q: I read your article on uterine fibroids. It was very helpful, however, do you have any other information regarding how I can get rid of the fibroids even faster? My doctor is pushing for me to have a hysterectomy ASAP. I am currently taking the fibroid formula and have eliminated dairy and meat products. My doctor says my fibroids have taken over my uterus and is pushing on my bladder, which causes me to urinate constantly. I have high regards for your recommendations. Could you please add any other suggestions of what else I can do to help eliminate the fibroids as rapidly as possible.
A: Check out the Fibroid Cleanse and Regimen to help with the reduction of fibroids and tumors in the female reproductive system. The Fibroid Cleanse and Regimen is ALL-NATURAL, safe and effective at aiding with the process of shrinking, dissolving and preventing future growth of fibroid tumors.
Q: Do you have a chart prepared that lists all food groupings that can be combined such as what fruit & veggies go together? I have downloaded your food chart but it lists the groupings individually and not in a combination form. If there is another document available that lists it that way, please advise.
Go to the "FOOD COMBINING CHART" on the Home Chart.
Q: I have used a product similar to your Bowel Mover which has both senna leaf and cascara sagrada as ingredients. Recently I had a colonoscopy and the gastroenterologist found staining from these ingredients. He also told me that if I continued to use them that they would have a reverse effect, making my minimal peristaltic action stop completely. What is your thoughts on my continued use of these products? Are there any herbs that would strengthen my peristaltic action, making it work on its own?
It is not true about the herbs. Plants are not like drugs! These herbs will not stain anything in your body. They are organic plants. Doctors are one half of all problems for giving people wrong information, usually in which people will believe or start thinking about. Stick with herbs for your healing. Try our COLON FORMULA and/or BOWEL MOVERand change your diet and you will be fine. Try nature!
Q: I have a good friend of mine who has spindalothiese. It's dealing with the back/ spine of course. I have been singing your praises and I asked him to send you an email. He said he sent it, but I think he put the wrong info in; so I wanted to know if you had heard of this; and if so, what regiment do you recommend. Be blessed.
Honestly I would recommend the person see a chiropractor. Herbal-wise I'd recommend the person detox their body (FULL BODY DETOX) and begin to reprogram their spine via thoughts/visualization/mental science. I have a new article on 'Back Problems' coming soon!
Q: Have you ever thought about expanding to the Houston, TX area? If so can I help? I have a high passion to teach people about nutrition, and herbal healing. It's because you I recently stop eating meat. Also do you talk to churches, if so could you talk to mine. I am willing to give up everything I do right now to fight against this horrible epidemic of Western Medicine.
I could use all the help available! It's not easy being one person. I just need people who are committed though. And yes, I talk to plenty of churches here in California. I will talk to anyone who listens. I even teach health and nutrition from a Biblical perspective too. I only require hotel lodging, airline (United Airlines only), ground transportation, and if possible, a love offering. I'm always available to speak to God's people. Always! Thank you Elton! Thank you for your interest. There's no greater service today in the world than servicing people. Peace and Love!
Q: I have been diagnosed with neutropenia and been seeing a hematologist for the last 6 years. He wants to avoid doing a bone marrow biopsy on me if he can. I am also anemic and received a iron infusion about a year ago. I go weekly for a CBC count and Monday I was told that my iron count is low again. The lowest my white blood count has been is in the 700's. I am Afro-American and I know that it's common for our white blood count to run low. I rarely eat red meat. I was a vegetarian until I got pregnant with my son he is now 2 1/2 yrs old. I eat red meat about once a month now. Is there anything that I can take to build up my white blood cells count?
Q: I read your article on protein. Will I lose muscle mass if I cut the protein out? I have already done away with meats and I don't want to become skinny. How do preserve my muscle tone with out taking the whey protein?
A: You can still receive your daily required value of protein from vegetarian sources, such as avocado, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. You can also add vegan protein powder to smoothies.
Q: Can you please write or address an article about, regular supermarket meat vs. halal meat? Point out that there is primarily no difference, based on the article you previously wrote on the dangers of meat. Meat is meat! I am muslim myself, and I don't eat even halal meat.
Please read our article entitled Halal Meat vs, Supermarket Meat.
Halal Meat vs. Supermarket Meat
Q: Hotep, I'm writing for a co-worker of mine, her friend's husband has pancreatic cancer. She said that he has been getting colonics, has purchase the Kanlan (sp) water machine for the alkaline, and was instructed to go raw. He's has a great mind set, he's still working and trying alternative ways to heal. Is there anything else he should be doing? You help is appreciated.
Yes, I would suggest the person performs the FULL BODY DETOX every 3-4 weeks and overdose on drinking vegetable juice (green veggies). While the person is not detoxing, I would recommend the person takes 3 capsules of the PANCREAS FORMULA 2-3 times daily.
Q: A friend of mine has a 3 year old cousin who has a brain tumor. The doctors said that there is nothing they can do. What formulas that you carry, do you think can help with his condition?
First, the child's diet must change: no meat, dairy, eggs, processed foods, etc.
Have the child perform the Children's Cleanse every other month. He would also benefit from taking the Electric Greens Combo, it only comes in pill form but you can open up the capsules and mix the herb mixture in their food or drink.
