Rawprincess Rituals and Rants: A SelfCare Guide to Beauty and Grace

My ebook for $2.95 pls buy today and get a fresh understanding of how to create a daily food sobriety.




Hi Everybody, Yesterday it was downloaded to me (again) that i need to be making a short video everyday with some tip or recipe, something to teach everyday. A friend was the messenger this time. i am on day two. Here i show and tell two ways to use chia in a daily shake or smoothie and also give you the links for the black gelatinized maca. This extra potent black maca is the only cooked item that some raw foodists would even consider because it is actually easier on the body and more affective than the raw maca.
This video above is partially in Spanish but very little is in Spanish.
my style is off the cuff and i sincerely hope you find something you did not know before. :)

Chia is for long-distance runners of Indian heritage in Mexico so why not be for you? Soak it for a gel that helps retain positive hydration in the cells longer than with just plain water (not bloat but retaining hydration) and grind it dry and eat immediately for a very unique and special antioxidant-rich oil if consumed within ten minutes.

Directions for using Chia Seeds

Put 1/3 cup dry seeds into two cups of warm water whisk, wait fifteen mins then whisk again then store gel in refrigerator .Use three tablespoons three times a day of the gel (seeds hydrated).

You can mix them into any drink or food and may even just take the gel. Once a day you can take up to one tablespoon of the dry seeds and add them to fluid or sprinkle them on food and drink fluid at the same time so the seeds hydrate from the fluid.

this is day two of 30 days. the others will be 3 or 4 minutes ONLY!!!

"What's the difference between Gelatinized Maca and Raw Maca and which is better?"

i go to my top sources for quality information backed by studies and personal experience so that would be the raw food world store... Matt Monarch owns and runs the largest online raw vegan and superfood store in the world... he has personally adhered to his raw vegan diet for over a decade as his wife Angela also. i have lost track of how many years but something like 13 each.

Matt Monarch recommends the black gelatinized maca after his extensive research and testing plus he has directly worked with the growers for improved soil and water quality where the maca is grown. Purchase this exact maca and read the full article here. i will receive a credit if you purchase using my special link. thank you!!! <3

He tells us that Black Maca is extremely rare, because it comprises only about6% of the entire Maca crop. Some of the clinical studies clearly state that while all varieties of Maca have a certain benefit, Black Maca consistently appears to have more beneficial effects. There is also something about the taste of Black Maca that Mr Monarch loves. It almost tastes roasted, even when it's a totally raw product. 

All of the clinical studies that he shares here with us below on Black Maca were done with some form of cooked Maca, such as an extract (please note that Gelatinized Maca can also be considered a "cooked extract")

What the largest online organic superfood store owner loves the most is that clinical studies have shown that Black Maca has beneficial effects on learning and memory. I feel it isalways valuable to be able to improve our thinking and focus in any way. 

Helps with depression!


http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16796734 
In the clinical study below, black maca improved experimentalmemory impairment induced by ovariectomy, due in part, by its antioxidant and Ache inhibitory activities. 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18955369 


It is also shown in the studies below that Black Maca has the potential to increase daily sperm production and sperm motility, which is the ability of sperm to move properly towards an egg. Furthermore, in the first study below, it shows that Black Maca affects sperm count as early as one day after beginning to take it and this study also states Black Maca to be more effective with this issue than regular Yellow Maca. 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16961569
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16174556
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23489070
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17683465
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17669402

In the clinical study below, it also states that Black Maca helped reduce glucose levels in diabetic mice both when taken on its own and in conjunction with Yacon

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23489070 

Black Maca and the other colors of Maca have the potential todramatically help with bone density, as you can see in the clinical studies below. One thing that people usually don't realize is that Maca is loaded with calcium. This high level of calciumcombined with Maca's hormone balancing properties mean Maca has the potential to be a bone density powerhouse. Components present in Maca are also said in clinical studies to normalize the functioning of the endocrine system and bring about balance in all of the hormone levels secreted by these glands, which has the potential to play a big role in promoting bone health. 

After all of the research I did on Maca, the special color varieties of Gelatinized Maca would be the number one products I would recommend to a person for overall bone health. We'll explain whyGelatinized Maca is better for this a bit later in this article. If I had to choose just one Maca product specifically for bone density, I would choose the Gelatinized Black Maca. Or even better, if funds permit, Black Gelatinized Maca alternated with Regular Gelatinized Maca would, I feel, be the ultimate combination. Our Regular Gelatinized Maca is a mixture of all three color varieties, just as they are naturally grown in the crop. Usually, each Maca crop contains at most 20% Red and Black Maca combined and about 80% Yellow Maca. Therefore, if you can use both the single-color Black Gelatinized Maca and the Regular Gelatinized Maca together, you are getting the best of all worlds. 

In the clinical study at the link below, Red and Black Maca wereboth shown to have protective effects on bone architecture in ovariectomized rats, while Yellow Maca wasn't as effective. 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20616517 
On the other hand, in the clinical study at the link below, Gelatinized "Yellow" Maca was shown to noticeably increase bone density markers, balance hormone levels and relieve symptoms of menopausal discomfort, (hot flushes and night sweating in particular). Imagine what Gelatinized Black Maca can do in these circumstances then! 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23675006 

In the clinical study at the link below, Maca Extract improved bone mass and restored the trabecular network in lumbar vertebrae in ovariectomized rats. This finding suggests that Maca is potentially useful for postmenopausal osteoporosis, which occurs in women as a result of estrogen deficiency. 

http://www.cof.org.cn/pdf/2006/6/Effect%20of%20ethanol%20extract.pdf


To boost this bone density Superfood even more, I'd take it with Yacon Syrup, which has the potential to have a synergisticeffect with the Maca on bone density. On the Dr. Oz website here, it states that Yacon consumption also appears to increase absorption of dietary minerals, and may make calcium more bioavailable. 

At the clinical study here, it shows that Yacon has the potential to help increasefracture strength and increase theconcentration of minerals in bones, an important factor in the prevention of diseases such as osteoporosis. I feel that the combination of these three Superfoods(Gelatinized Black Maca, Gelatinized Maca, and Yacon Syrup) is theideal way to go for bone density concerns. 

All the varieties of Maca are incredible, yet it seems clear to me that Black Maca is the richest in health benefits of all Maca colors. I only found five clinical studies on Red Maca and all of them show that Red Maca is incredible for male prostate health, such as reducing the size of the prostate, whereas the studies for Black Maca cover a vast range of topics. Here are these clinical studies below on Red Maca and Prostate Health:

My Baby 'Costa Brava Organics' is Germinating: Purple Corn Planting With One's Lover & Shooing Away Psychic Vampires

A full year in Los Barriles ... i keep lightening the possessions and clearing clutter, cleaning spaces, adding plants, crystals, good energy and striving for highest bliss and guidance ... my biggest joy is connecting with people, animal people and life itself throughout this earth plane... i am loving my life! My diet is lightening up once again and i haven't lost my vision gained fm my meeting Viktoras Kulvinskas & Ann Wigmore in the 70s and living the eco-lifestyle on an organic farm commune with other musicians and artists! At age 17 i assisted in an in-home cancer reversal w/ juice, enemas and change of diet. Today i envision a writer's colony right here alongside my store, healing arts school and humble smoothie bar. 
me (center) with Perr and Wicca in the Zendik Street Orgaztra on Venice Boardwalk

The blue corn sprouted, Armando pointed out the almost imperceptible threads of green sprouting out of the ground this morning guiding my steps so i wouldn't crush them. Happy, i walked back to the campo and put the bucket of compost on the back of the bike and rode back. He smiled, his wide grin of white teeth bidding me on. He told me to dump it by the tomato plants so i did and went back for the second bucket. We bring the scraps from Rawgoddess Green Smoothies in Los Barriles, Bcs, Mexico. It is on the main malecon strip mall which houses the veggie girls, the Oaxaca weaver and others. We serve a wide variety of green juices, smoothies, fruity softserv, and raw chocolate energy bars, salads, wraps and the occasional Mexican feast.
Armando waters our corn seeds in Piedras Gordas at the marina.
I feel that corn is something i may never grasp and can only fathom its effectiveness. Corn is a deeply sacred seed and food which like i said i respect and revere but cannot trust that i 'get it'... corn is earth, corn IS the Indian people corn IS life... and with the violations of companies like Monsanto it's a death rape to be stripped of real corn, pollinated corn and to have it tainted by someone in a laboratory trying to make a buck is a heinous crime.

My Grandpa Frank and his brothers were the largest producers of carrots in the states for many years and they also had fields of corn in Indio where we'd often spend long weekends over Thanksgiving as a family. i grilled him to make sure he didn't use pesticides or sprays... neither of us knew the very fertility of corn would be at stake in the not so far future.

One day Armando and i planted six rows or so. Later he suggested we fill in the remaining rows. i gave him the seeds and it was an odd moment. As a warrioress goddess you must remain alert and aware of the Universe speaking to you and in this case i thought i'd go get a swim in so A. was headed to the garden to plant. As soon as he started the car i knew i'd made a mistake and that i needed to be present for the planting. He didn't hear me shriek "Miho" as he rounded the corner leaving because the radio was on so loud.

i didn't care the whole restaurant across the street were giggling as i huffed and puffed on the bicicycle half-dressed to catch up with him...

when i came up the stone steps leading to the land from the wrought iron side gate with the bicycle i saw that he indeed was home like he said he would. And he was also in the garden! But what i saw next set me off running full speed full throttle. A lady of opportunity was standing at the edges of the garden smoking a cigarette and flirting with him. i could see what was coming if i hadn't been there. He would have planted those seeds without my energies and with this other lady's energy that i knew was scattered. She had been visiting a worker on the property for a few days and we'd talked a little.

Inside i was ready to jump her but i ran hard and as i got closer i yelled, "Quiero plantar maize con mi espuso solo!!!" (i want to plant corn with my husband alone!) She had a big good-natured grin on her face as she hurried past us both and i had no need to jump her. He put his arms around me, "Tranquila, Relajate" ... It's not his energies i'm concerned about it was hers. We planted the entire pound of blue corn seeds and soaked them well. Like Anastasia says in the Anastasia, Ringing Cedar series, i like to put the seeds into my mouth so they know me and put them in the ground.

The garden in Piedras Gordas easily becomes the central foods for Rawgoddess Green Smoothies as do the plants of the desert nopal, aloe vera and moringa.

Not a possessive girl unless it would f_ck up my corn patch!

Here at Rawgoddess Baja in Los Barriles, Baja California de Sur, Mexico. i love waking up and seeing the sunrise and the moon set at the same time. The glassy water's velvety table for the pink sun coming up glows as i walk to my corn patch. Yesterday was Day 2 of my personal program and i'm recording everything for my  very first public webcasted series. My journal keeps noting the peace and bliss i feel while eating this way. i've half-jokingly coined this the Baja Beer Diet: A Cleanse & Flourish series.

In the Rawgoddess Building we welcome the new store of Costa Brava Organics. Los Gente's Coop will be available for new members this summer, as well on select staples and cici's picks. i apologize for not getting this started sooner but we are celebrating a new skincare line and the upcoming birth of a  baby among our staff, very soon! New stock is arriving every week and we will have a grand opening party with live music.

ecotools exfoliation gloves
We try to keep ample supply of exfoliating tools on hand. Always brush from the extremities--arms and legs--towards the heart. Do this on dry skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate internal oil stores as well as collagen production and bring this to the surface... the fresh blood circulation means that the lymphatic system gets refreshed and in turn will allow toxins from the cells to be moved via the body system's water body to be eliminated ... mucus will be expelled via coughing and bowel movements so look in your stool afterward... in addition, toxic gases trapped in the lymph and cells will be stimulated and supported to move also so look for burping and gas expelling (farts) and keep EVERTHING CLEAN that you put into your mouth to enhance the whole process. This means organic first and whole food organic second ... eliminate dairy, grains and certain nuts unless soaked, add more raw fruits and vegetables particularly adding two heads of greens per day at first.

IMPORTANT: After sunbathing or sun exposure for a daily 15 minute minimum, be sure you do not use soap on the skin for at least 24 hrs with possible exception of armpits and bitty bits in moderation. Use the dry brush so the skin's mantle will do its photosynthesis type thing and create VITAMIN D!!! You may wipe down with a damp cloth or rinse gently in a cool shower then towel dry without harming this process.
