RAW~ Our Thirty Day Challenge.

Over two weeks ago a friend of mine emailed me a link regarding a Raw Food Eating Challenge and it's benefits with the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.   My daughter Chloe, age 10 was diagnosed 6/06 of type 1 diabetes, so this challenge naturally caught my attention. Since our physicians have never mentioned this method of treatment, I was extremely skeptic. Well, we went for it and here are the results just after 12 days.
Day 1:
*Insulin Basal: 24 units per day. 20-40 units for food a day.
Day 2:
*Insulin Basal: 12 units per day. 5-8 units for food a day.

Chloe's insulin has already been cut more then half just after 12 days!

I keep getting grilled on the protein factor of raw food eating.  Here's the skinny!

                      Protein from meat.  Myth!  Here is a short list of food that can provide your body with protein besides meat.

  1. Sprouts
  2. Spinach
  3. Kale
  4. Broccoli
  5. Parsley
  6. Cucumber
  7. Artichokes
  8. Celery
  9. Hemp Seeds
  10. Flax Seeds
  11. Pumpkin seeds
  12. Tomatoes
  13. Almonds
