Healing Salad vs. Sick Salad

I talk to good folks daily about their health, and one of the biggest concerns people ask me is how to lose body fat. They tell me about the hours spent on the treadmill and all the diet food they eat, without the hoped-for results. When I ask them what they eat, the biggest response I get is salads, hoping to help them lose weight.

If you are buying your foods from mega-giant fake food industries and trusting them for what is healthy, I’ll just tell you now and save your time: you won’t ever get healthy trusting them. The industrialized food industry doesn’t care if you are losing weight or not. Their main concern is just that you just keep buying their very addictive food products. That’s why I am teaching what really works to help you get well and get thin.

Let’s just take a quick look at something as simple as a store or restaurant salad with light dressing vs. the John Rankin Way salad. You might think that the salad you have been eating with a light dressing is very healthy and will take and keep weight off your body much better than the salad with all of the fat on it.  Good choice, right?

Well, this is where it gets tricky.  We’ve been told for years that these light salad dressings are very healthy for us. We’ve been conned by very bad conspiring people whose only concern is the profit margin for their shareholders at the cost of sickening millions of people with their inflammatory cancer-causing products.

Let’s take a look at the iceberg lettuce salad with croutons and light ranch dressing. There’s really not much to say about the greens in this salad because iceberg lettuce is mostly 95% water with very little fiber or minerals. So in other words, HARDLY ANY NUTRITION. As for the croutons, most are made from white flour with large amounts of inflammatory refined sodium, monosodium glutamate, and cooked in trans fats. These chemicals are very inflammatory and most surely will quickly add fat to your body.  As for the so-called healthy light ranch dressing, there are many problems you should be aware of.  First, the soybean oil used in production has been heated to extremely high temperatures which makes it inflammatory not to mention the questionable source from which it came. Sugar and monosodium glutamate are anything but light because they add extreme water retention (INFLAMMATION)  and body fat. The added sodium a heavily refined highly inflammatory sodium that causes even more fat and water retention in your body.  And we haven’t even mentioned the dozen or so more inflammatory ingredients on this label. WOW, and just when we thought it was healthy. It’s anything but healthy.  That salad dressing is actually causing disease because of all these inflammatory ingredients packed into it.

Now let’s jump over to the healer salad.  It is loaded with leafy green vegetables such as spinach–very high in zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B-6, folate, thiamine, protein, potassium, magnesium, calcium, fiber, and vitamins E, K, C, and A.  The heart-healthy dark-colored olives are from a healthy monounsaturated fat which helps raise HDL (the good cholesterol that keeps your heart healthy) and is an antioxidant that stops oxidation in the bloodstream (no blood clots).  As with any food product, be very careful when you purchase olives because some food manufacturers will actually dye the olives. I know.  It just doesn’t seem right!  (That’s why I’m going to show you a lot of things these industrialized food companies are doing that are anything but right.)

The wild-caught salmon is loaded with selenium, niacin, B-12, D, protein, B-6, and phosphorus. It is also a super source of omega-3 fatty acids that are very heart-healthy. The raw unpasteurized goat cheese (that most people think will make you fat) will actually only aid to make you skinny. Studies have proven that it also helps stop allergies.  This powerful probiotic source creates healthy gut bacteria that are essential for the digestion of food. The onions are a very good source of vitamin B-6, iron, C, folate, potassium, vitamins E, K, C, A with a very good source of fiber,  not to mention the high anti-inflammatory effects they have on your body.  The garlic in my salad has phosphorus, iron, B-1, calcium, copper and a chemical called allicin which has been shown through many studies to aid in the prevention of colds and to lower your blood pressure as well as lowering total and LDL (bad) cholesterol and aid and prevent infectious diseases such as Alzheimer’s. And if that weren’t enough, last but not least is my very anti-inflammatory salad dressing:  extra virgin olive oil in which you will notice only one ingredient on the bottle–real pure olive oil.  This wonderful gift from mother nature is loaded with oleic acid and is a monounsaturated heart-healthy fat that will aid in lowering total and LDL cholesterol and also regulate blood sugar and insulin levels. And don’t be afraid to use several tablespoons on your salad.  Americans carefully drizzle olive oil, but the healthy Mediterraneans soak food in it.

So, folks, that’s the truth about what will help you get healthy vs. what you may have thought was helping you get healthy.  The sick salad–totally loaded with inflammatory chemicals–will not only make you fat but will cause everything from thyroid disease to heart disease through massive inflammation in your body. The healer salad is loaded with almost every healing ingredient and mineral known to mankind, making your body lean and preventing and curing everything from Alzheimer’s, heart disease, thyroid disease, diabetes, cancer, and of course arthritis.  All of these diseases are rooted in inflammation.  So eliminate inflammatory foods from your diet.  Add pure whole foods from mother nature.  And be well.

I sincerely care about you and the health of your family.
