Greetings fellow stewards. It's been one heck of a week for yours truly, as the title of this blog suggests. My Grandfather (Papa) was in town from Dallas. You've read about him before if you've been reading my blogs for a while. It's been quite a treat to have him visit. I'll give you guys an outline of what the week's been like. I took the whole week off of work... You'd think I'd feel as if I'd had a break... Ha!
Picked up Papa from the airport in town here, Hector International... They have an arcade... A coffe shop/snack bar, and a gift shop...Oooohhhh..... So good to see him again. He's looking great. Healthy as ever at 59. Muscles are still 3X bigger than mine... One day... Perhaps... Mine will be bigger (doubtful). Funny thing about us... We are both Leos on the Zodiac, both Roosters on the Chinese astrological calendar... He's an O, I'm an A, both non secretors, both RH positive. We both have a crooked pinky on our right hands, we both have one leg longer than the other... We're both fanatical about nutrition, supplementation, politics, well being, alternative health modalities, energy healing... The list goes on and on. I truly feel a deep connection with him on a spiritual level... Crazy stuff. We get along quite well!
I don't know why, but when I was a kid, I always called him "Papa" (with elongated vowels, as in PAWW-PAWW) It just stuck! I call my Grandma "Nanny" too... WTH?!
Started off each day of the week juicing. Romaine, carrots, broccoli, celery, an apple here and there, green onion, whole lemons, all organic of course... Geez... I can't even remember what else... I kept things pretty simple though. Not too many ingredients for each "batch" of juice... I would make 32 oz every morning. I would drink 8 immediatley, put 8 in an air-tight Kerr jar for him, and the other 16 in another airtight jar for us to split before lunch or dinner. We also did around 4 oz of Noni juice (Tahiti Trader's) a day. It's been a toxifying and detoxifying week... I'll elaborate in a bit... He he... He was staying at my parents house, and I did all the juicing at mine. Hence the jars... Lots of Jars. I feel that this past week was near dictated by jars, jars, JARS!
Once I was done with my morning routine (juicing, having some ground flax, taking and sorting my supplements for the day, meditating with Holosync, making my kidney support tea, enjoying a nice castor oil pack over the abdomen, etc.) I would run over and force the juice down his throat, and make him breakfast. Usually free range/organic eggs, and Ezekiel bread... Seasoned with lots of paprika, cayenne, Herbamare and Trocomare by Vogel (AWESOME!), parsley, cumin, etc. Used mainly NOW extra virgin coconut oil, Purity Farms ghee, and Bertolli extra virgin Olive oil for the healthy fats. He likes his Food For Life Ezekiel bread smothered in it... And... So do I! Try it!
After breakfast, we would usually drink WAY too much green tea, white tea, or yerba mate... Caffiene buzz... Mess around with a couple of computers we were "tricking out" and upgrading for my dad and my sis, and play with all his healing devices that he brought along (Quantum coherence generators, quantum energy generators, a Scanar, a brain tuner, bio feedback devices, etc. Wow... Crazy cool stuff... I won't get too deep into it...
After messing around with toys and computers, I'd usually talk him into giving me an "adjustments" as I like to call it. He's what some call an "Alphabioticist..." He does Chiropracty, skeletal alignment, energy healing, deep tissue massage, facial alignments, Quantum Touch Therapy, etc. Not to mention those "toys" I mentioned earlier! It's a treat to have him do that kind of stuff for me when he has clients in Dallas paying big bucks to have it done. I figure the very LEAST I could do is juice every day and cook all his meals to our outrageous blood type diet/general nutrition/wisdom standards. Oh man... I'd be a slave for those "adjustments" every day... Sweet.
It's been a real treat cooking for him as well. I don't know why, but I've always felt at home cooking and cleaning in a kitchen. Haha. I'm damn good at it too... If I do say so myself. Being a bachelor type A vegan, I keep things pretty simple for myself. Him being a Carniverous type O with the appetite (and size!) of two men, makes the ol' kitchen routine a wildly different experience. Soft boiled eggs, grilled bison burgers, grilled porterhouse steaks, grilled chicken breasts, lots of salads (spinach and romaine based), lots of steamed vegetables (broccoli, carrots, etc.) lot's of healthy fats, organic lemons, delicious wines (cracked a couple of my better bottles that I had been saving) etc. Blah blah blah... It's been a hell of a week for gourmet cookin'.
I know hat you're thinkin'... What did I eat? Well... Ground flax, salads, steamed vegetables, lot's of Ezekiel bread (the 4:9 variety, as well as the Sesame), grape fruit, apricots, lemons, black mission and Calimyrna figs, cherries, green apples, cucumber, cauliflower, lots of walnuts, raw almonds, tamari almonds, a few pecans, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Seeds (not rated, I suspect benneficial), all the juices I mentioned above... We even wen't to the Hu-Hot Mongolian Grill for dinner the first night. Fantastic. Black bean and vegetable stir fry with sesame oil, garlic and ginger, peanuts, etc., etc.. Wow... Ate a lot.
How many avoids did I consume? well... I had a few to be sure. Allow me to fill you in...
I quit eating Ezekiel bread as it is not naturally leavened, and contains yeast... Not an avoid for A's or anything... I just happen to believe that yeast does not "vibe" with me... Unless it's Red Star Nutritional Yeast... Anyway... I had lots of Ezekeil bread this week... Even tried the Ezekiel cinnamon raisin english muffins. I assure you... They are to DIE for.
I ate tons (literally) of the NOW coconut oil. Yum. This is one avoid (so long as it is organic and extra virgin, cold pressed, etc.,) that I will let by anytime. Come on guys... Even Dr. D (type A) eats ground beef stuffed cabbage rolls once a year... Ha ha.
Consumed quite a bit of cayenne... Another avoid I'll let slip by pretty often... Ate the Trocomare seasoning too... It contains chilli powder...
I drank quite a bit of red wine... Something I have been cutting back on HARD lately as I attempt to sort out the "gut" probs I've been dealing with for years. Just trying to do all I can to support the liver, and not feed the Candida... Even benneficials have thier "cons" in certain situations folks.
Drank quite a bit of Saki the past two weeks as well (Japanese rice wine - unrated) I believe it would be nuetral... But, I really don't know. Wonderful stuff though. Provided it's a good brand/variety and it's served properly...
Been eating the Hemp seeds I mentioned above... I really believe they are beneficial.
And finally. Dark chocolate! I found a Dagobah (Sanskrit for "Temple of the Gods") dark chocolate bar by the name of Eclipse. It's 87% cocoa content makes for an extremley low sugar content (only 8g per 2oz bar!!!). It's organic, fair trade, full of love, and freakin' delicious. I eat it with a drizzle of vanilla spiked vegetable glycerin. Try it. Immediatley... Haha. Listen to me... Condoning the consumption of evaporated cane juice... It's the Apocolypse!
Wow... This got really long... We did a ton of other stuff too... Got colonics, did some shopping, traded massages, used a car buffer to work on peoples backs, did quantum touch on family and friends... All kinds of crazy business. Blah, blah, blah... I don't wanna eat your whole day (been eating all week!)... so... I'll just say, Namaste! Do forgive the spelling errors (two finger typed this at the speed of light)...
Oh yeah! Here's hoping Star Wars Episode III doesn't suck as bad as Episode II. I've got VIP tickets to the midnight showing at midnight on the 19th... So, technically... It'd be midnight after the night of the 18th... Or 0:00 hours on the 19th... So complicated...... Later friends. I'll let you know what I thought of the capper on this quintisential sextilogy of intergalactic space opera insanity. Gotta love it!
