I can't say that I have been here to tell you how great it is but fashioned of the teachings of Ann Wigmore, it has to be effective and educational.
I say give it a go, at least you don't have to fly to Pueto Rico to find out!

The beta agonist ractopamine, a repartitioning agent that increases protein synthesis, was recruited for livestock use when researchers found the drug, used in asthma, made mice more muscular.
Ractopamine is started as the animal nears slaughter.
How does a drug marked, "Not for use in humans. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure. Use protective clothing, impervious gloves, protective eye wear, and a NIOSH-approved dust mask" become "safe" in human food? With no washout period?
The drug is banned in Europe, Taiwan and China, and more than 1,700 people have been "poisoned" from eating pigs fed the drug since 1998, but ractopamine is used in 45 percent of U.S. pigs and 30 percent of ration-fed cattle.

So I just got this today from my friend on Facebook Chef Believe, evidently passed on from Vanessa Johansson http://www.meetup.com/slc-rawfood-superheroes-com/members/5900104/
As I never really trusted Sun Food and their over bloated prices this comes to my inbox. Please read and repost as much as possible.
I have been meaning to post this for a month now and finally have found a moment to do so.
As some of you know I have been investigating the raw cacao industry and raw powder and butter in particular. You heard it here first that basically every cacao product on the market today is actually cooked, and as of right now Essential Living Foods, Big Tree Organics and the paste from Ultimate Superfoods (not the powder) is actually a raw product.
Well, I have a grand finale to this story. After many conversations and emails I have discovered some important info about Sunfood, David Wolfes company.
First of all, it is not David Wolfes company.
As of at least 12 months ago, it has been owned by Doug Harbison, a non raw foodist non superhero cooked wonder bread old school business executive. David Wolfe makes no money off of Sunfood and owns no stock in Sunfood. He tried to get Sunfood off of cooked chocolate products and the owners would not listen to him. In fact, they have over 8 lawsuits against David Wolfe.
I spoke to the current owner of Sunfood...
WHERE CAN WE FIND XYLITOL? Plums, strawberries, and raspberries
are the rich sources of xylitol which has been demonstrated to have
Teflex is the name given to the non stick sheets which are in fact flexible Teflon or PTFE. According to wise GEEK at http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-ptfe.htm Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic material accidentally invented in the late 1930s while a chemist was endeavoring to develop a new type of perfluorethylene-based refrigerant. Rather than achieving a chlorofluorocarbon, the scientist was surprised to find that the perfluorethylene used in the process reacted with the iron content of its container and polymerized under pressure. Less than a decade later, this new material was being distributed on a commercial scale and was eventually patented under the name Teflon®. However, it would be another 20 years before PTFE would hit the frying and become known as the first non-stick coating for cookware. In fact, this material was used for a variety of other purposes at first.
At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floride PTFE is often used to coat non-stick frying pans as it is not water-wettable and possesses high heat resistance.
Fluoropolymers such as polytetrafluoroethylene, Teflon®, are used as chemically inert and biocompatible materials for a variety of applications, including as surgical implants such as coronary bypass grafts, and a replacement for soft tissue in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. These compounds are also commonly used as non-stick surfaces in cookware and bakeware, and the fluoropolymer fabric Gore-Tex used in breathable garments for outdoor use.
Given that the only real Red Flag that has been raised in the use of PTFE with food has been with cookware would make one think that high heat would be the cause of any chemical, perfluorochemical (PFC) emissions that may leach into the food.
I’ve seen several post at Dr Mercola on the topic http://www.mercola.com/article/teflon/index.htm and he says without heat it seems to be OK.
He is now recommending a xtrema ceramic cookware. http://cookware.mercola.com/Cookware.aspx
***this means that all 'HEALTHY' foodists are now '''mental''' !
Wonder if there is a 'drug' for treatment of this??? Joz
Eating Healthy - A Mental Disorder
Barbara Peterson August 28, 2009Hey, if the World Homicide Organization, excuse me, World Health Organization can make up a pandemic and get away with it, then why should they have all the fun? It seems that our medical community has been busy for quite some time inventing ridiculous diseases.
A California doctor named Steven Bratman determined in 1997 that a "fixation on righteous eating" is a disease he coined as orthorexia nervosa. "Those most susceptible are middle-class, well-educated people who read about food scares in the papers, research them on the internet, and have the time and money to source what they believe to be purer alternatives," says Ursula Philpot, chair of the British Dietetic Association's mental health group.
So, let me get this straight. If you are well educated, want to eat healthy, avoid contaminated food and have the money to do so, you are mentally ill. "Refusing to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods is just the start of their diet restrictions. Any foods that have come into contact with pesticides, herbicides or contain artificial additives are also out" (Observer).
Organic food enthusiasts watch out! You are mentally ill, need treatment, and should be checked into a clinic or treatment center. I guess the docs feel that if you can afford to eat healthy, you can afford the thousand dollars it costs for one month´s worth of therapy to cure your obsession with wanting to be healthy.
Evidently, if you don't care what you shovel into your body, you are mentally balanced. Are these people insane? I think the following from Sibel Edmonds explains it quite clearly:
To Drink or Not to Drink
Once upon a time an evil warlock visits a kingdom and poisons the central well with a potion that drives people mad. The next morning all who drink from that well go crazy. The queen, however, knew about this in advance, and didn´t drink from the communal well. The next day, those who drank the poisoned water came to the queen and accused her of being the crazy one. The queen, aware of what had transpired, was faced with a dilemma: drink from the well and lose her sanity like the rest of her subjects, but remain queen; or don´t drink, remain sane, but be swept from power by those who would view her very sanity as madness.
I might not have medical credentials like the "professionals" who endorse this madness, but I´ve got a solution to the problem. Rid the store shelves of garbage and fill them with healthy food. Get rid of genetically modified filth, pesticide-ridden produce and preservative laden processed foodstuffs. Replace them with clean, organic, locally grown fruits and veggies whose genes have not been blasted in a laboratory with fish genes. Label each product with ALL of the ingredients without subterfuge and then people who want to eat healthy might not have to spend an extraordinary amount of time trying to sort through garbage that masquerades as food in order to stay healthy.
Nah, the medical establishment wouldn´t make as much money off us that way. Couldn´t have that, now could we?
