Pumpkin Seeds
This is a free excerpt from God's Banquet Table!

 

PUMPKIN SEEDS  Raw, shelled pumpkin seeds are dark green and absolutely delicious. Until recently they were difficult to find, but have become more plentiful due to government effort. The U. S. Department of Agriculture combined the flavor of a good tasting pumpkin seed with the genetics of a shell-less seed variety, resulting in a gourmet pumpkin seed that does not have to be dehulled.

Pumpkin seed oil is dark green with a full bodied butter-like nutty flavor. It can now be purchased cold-pressed in dark bottles in the refrigerator of your local health food store. Always check the expiration date. Pumpkin seed oil contains both omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids making them a delicate oil. Pumpkin seed oil is a tasty replacement for flax seed oil and delicious over fruit or vegetable salads. Pumpkin seed is a high source of vitamin A, calcium and iron, containing small amounts of protein, B1, B2 and B3.

Each nut carries the blueprint of a living monolith that will stretch to the heavens and fill the sky with a canopy of green. Giants that will stand outstretched in worship, bringing glory to a Creator who is not small. When we harvest nuts we gather a blessing of highly concentrated nutrients. Little packages of proteins, oils, vitamins and minerals essential to growth and germination.

Fresh raw nuts in their shells make the best snack food for two reasons. First, the oil will be fresh because of the natural protection of the outer shell. Secondly, cracking open the shell forces you to eat more slowly instead of handfuls of nuts that are improperly chewed and swallowed. You have time to mix this concentrated food with ample saliva, making it much easier on the digestive system. We eat food far too quickly and this is unhealthy, especially with highly concentrated foods. Chewing nuts slowly will help to eliminate the heaviness in the stomach. Mixing nuts with dried fruits increases their digestibility and the combinations of flavors are splendiciously delicious.

It is easy to overeat this luxurious treat. Learn to be content with small amounts, unless you are a serious bodybuilder or active.

Peanuts, which are not in the nut family, are 26% protein, compared to 20% lean beef. Snacking on the variety of raw nuts available to us is far more desirable than the average 4 to 6 billion dollars per year North Americans spend on snack foods. Nuts as a snack food are filling and satisfying, being slower to digest than fruits and vegetables. The high oil content wards off hunger pains for hours.

Do not be beguiled by the flavor of roasted nuts. They may taste delicious, especially when they are coated with salt and monosodium glutamate, but the delicate oils have been transformed into cancer-causing compounds. It will not take long for you to readjust your taste to the delicate, fresh flavor of salt-free, raw nuts. Once you do, you will never go back.

Raw food lends itself well to a disciplined life. When nuts are roasted and salted, they become addictive. In one evening, you can munch down a one pound container without a thought—until you go to bed and your stomach hurts. Yet, when the nuts are raw, a couple of handfuls are completely satisfying and can actually contribute to weight-loss.

Unshelled nuts should be purchased and stored in the refrigerator. There are many nut butters sold in health food stores but are completely useless because the nuts have been roasted, exposed to light, air and heat, the three culprits that transform essential oils. Besides, why not make your own nut butter fresh every day? It’s simple and easy.

TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE

 
Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
