How to understand cancer treatments and why our system is so messed up


By R. Webster Kehr

We live in a world of “fast foods,” “fast cars,” and fast answers or should I say: “shallow answers.” Executives don’t like to read reports of more than one or two pages. People want to learn everything they need to know about something by watching a 1/2 hour television show. Students want to learn complicated mathematics while they play video games. And so on.

Unfortunately, the world of cancer politics and cancer treatments are not simple subjects. They are complicated. Plus it is impossible to overcome decades of constant false information by reading for half an hour. So grab something to drink, settle into your seat, and grab your computer mouse, because this is not going to be a short story, nor will it be entertaining. Let us start with a metaphor.

The War Between Orthodox Medicine And Alternative Medicine Written by Webster Kehr

About This Ebook


This eBook is more technical and detailed than the “Introduction to Alternative Cancer Treatments” eBook. For example, it details a randomly chosen issue of the Reader’s Digest and shows how the large number of pharmaceutical advertisements correlates with the large number of articles in the magazine which glorify orthodox medicine.


But the real power of this book is in its discussions of the tactics of the pharmaceutical industry, the media and the FDA. Great detail is shown for how these three entities manipulate and control information.


Also, in this book is a chapter on how Linus Pauling, PhD (two-time Nobel Prize winner) and Dr. Ewen Cameron, M.D. (actually M.B. in Scotland) demonstrated that Vitamin C, given in moderate doses, provided far, far better results for cancer patients than orthodox cancer treatments.


The two-time Nobel Prize winner and medical doctor infuriated the medical establishment because they had integrity!! The tactics to discredit the Pauling/Cameron research are studied in detail.


In short, this eBook is for those who want to dig deeper into the tactics of the medical establishment, the media, the pharmaceutical industry and the FDA.
Chapter 1 – Introduction To The War in Medicine
Chapter 2 – The Foundation Of The War in Medicine
Chapter 3 – Case Study of Scientific Corruption[Pauling and Cameron]
Chapter 4 – Remission, Cure Rates and Other Deceptions
Chapter 5 – The Approval of Chemotherapy Drugs
Chapter 6 – The Scientific Evidence For Alternative Medicine
Chapter 7 – Cancer Research

Update on Northern Baja Gerson Center (Advanced Gerson Therapy)

It has come to my attention that Northern Baja Gerson Center in Rosarito Beach Mexico is getting some bad press from patients who have been there.  I have had long conversations with patients who lost family members to cancer while doing the Advanced Gerson Therapy offered there.  It is never easy, especially when it is us who has the cancer, to maintain a clear and objective view of the world when under the physical psychological and spiritual pressure dictated by this ruthless imbalance called cancer.  It goes without saying that cancer was never an easy fix.  A lot of people have dedicated their lives to healing it, but cancer marches on.  It is a formidable foe and we must remember that while it is true that we all must die one day that regardless of why we are sick it is how we deal with it that matters.  It is indeed the quality of life, and our dignity as Human Beings that matters most.

When we are ill we must be prepare to help what ever therapy we choose.  We must be prepared to assist the Gerson Therapy to help the body to heal.  We do so with unrelenting all important emotional and spiritual rigor.  Cancer is a game not for the faint of heart.  It is a as much a game of the mind as it is of the body.  From the personal log of Bill Zimmermann 2009.  "I must concede...


  • "...the holistic route is not for everyone.  It demands a personal transformative act of will, real courage and a commitment to personal change.  In what appears to be our darkest moments cancer redoubles and then triples its demand upon us.  It commands us to manifest undreamed of courage empathy and tenderness all at the same time.  It is a deeply personal and satisfying challenge, with love itself at the core of the engine of healing"  Bill Zimmermann 2009.


Recently I received an anonymous comment on this site that stated:
"I was a patient at Dr. Vickers clinic (Northern Baja Gerson Center in Rosarito Mexico). After paying $10,000, the treatments didn't work and almost killed me. My cancer grew at an alarming rate while on Dr. Vickers protocol and Gerson therapy. I started chemo to get the cancer under control and am alive because I abandoned the Gerson/Vickers protocol. I kept in touch with another patient and he had the same experience. Dr. Vickers talks like he is curing all his patients but be warned from a former patient--it's a deadly gamble to go to his clinic."

To which I respond...

"It is unfortunate you had a negative experience with the Advanced Gerson Therapy, but you're not dead yet. Every patient does not always respond to it, or for that matter, to chemo, radiation or surgery. The objective of Dr. Vickers and the other excellent Gerson hospitals is to deliver a holistic synergistic approach that works with the body to help it heal itself - nothing more.  I do not believe the Gerson Therapy and the Advanced Therapies offered at NBGC could "kill you or are a deadly gamble" as you stated.  It is not toxic so it can not kill you.  What it is as you well know, is an alternative way to deal with the imbalance 'cancer.'  It is well documented to be remarkably effective, in fact statistically far more effective than chemo, radiation and surgery combined without the side effects.  Please use what you learned at NBGC.  Add it to your bag of tricks and apply when appropriate to your new choice in therapy to help a successful outcome.

Sometimes in our desperation we blame others when their best work fails us. I know Dr. Vickers well enough to know that he is doing his best to heal his patients, sometimes in a last ditch effort at reversal of cancers that are extremely difficult to manage or to cure.  Ten thousand dollars may seem like a lot of money when we do not have an insurance company to pay it, but we all pay for your chemo through what ever outcome by way of insurance premiums, taxes (Medicare) and so forth. Chemo rarely works and is a multi billion dollar industry.  When it does not work it destroys quality of life from beginning to end and weakens the bodies immune system so that we must come back for more highly profitable therapy when the cancer returns.  It's a rigged game and the oncology game is rigged to profit from your pain as sure as my name is Bill.  Yes, I have known people who have survived chemo.  But the cancer almost always comes back.  A dear friend is on her third round of chemo after two bouts with cancer.  She is in her late sixties and she is a powerhouse of optimism, love and generosity.  I believe it is these qualities that have carried her not the chemotherapy itself.

If you come back and read this reply I want you to know that my heart goes out to you as it is my sincere conviction to assist people here on this blog with life saving information.  I have seen what conventional medicine has to offer and like your experience with Dr. Vickers chemo does not work to my satisfaction. 

The truth is cancer is a cunning and baffling ...sinister and tricky disease. What works for one person may not work for another.  But one thing is for certain.  Half the healing is in our attitude and in our heart.  Charlotte Gerson once said to me "Bill we can only cure half of any cancer, the other half is in the mind and in the heart of the patient" (read up on epigenetics). With this in mind perhaps you will combine the therapies to what ever degree is appropriate and advisable and forgive the failure of the Advanced Gerson approach.  I think it was a wise decision to start with the Gerson Therapy and hope you take with you what was useful about it.

Please know that sometimes cancer just marches into our lives and kills unmercifully no matter what we do.  That is the truth.  And it is also true and well documented that oft times our thoughts and emotional states create our condition and ultimately the can be disciplined and controlled to guide us back to healing.

Don't be angry with Dr. Vickers.  Fear anger and resentment are the most deadly part of cancer.  A lot of people who practice the Gerson therapy do get well and of course some do not.  But the truth is the therapy is only half the battle and I hope you know that this is also true for your chemo and for radiation and surgery too.  Your mind and heart hold half the cards and in most cases contribute heavily to the desired outcome. Forgiveness, fair mindedness and a sweetness of character is a most powerful therapy.  In fact it is as important if not more important than any medical procedure however counter it is to the fear anger and panic that sets in.  Cancer is a game of the heart, mind and body.  It takes great finesse skill and cunning to heal.  One also needs support of family friends and ones enlightened physician.  It is a challenge and you can win!  But it is up to you to play your internal game well.  It is your internal super-hero that will transcend the disease and put cancer cells back into balance.  But don't smear Dr. Vickers.  He, like Dr. Burzynski in Houston is a trailblazer in a modality of healing that works for some but not for others.  In the end the Gerson Therapy is incredibly HUMANE and combined with proper care maintains a high quality of life especially in the end when we want to be close to our loved ones with dignity and in as good health as possible.

Personally  I never dismiss any kind of therapy that works.  I know someone who got Proton Therapy for prostate cancer and to date he is fine!  So I hope chemo works for you.  I guarantee you there are aspects to the Gerson Therapy that will help you stay well should you heal.  Detoxification after chemo is done will be important making the Gerson Therapy useful when it comes time for you to clean up the mess left by chemo - so the cancer does not come back.  To release anger and resentment and the kind of judgment that you have levied against Dr. Vickers and his therapies might be the key to healing.  Not to do so is the deadliest thing you could do.

Again my heart and deepest faith goes out to you for a quick and effective healing right now. Bill Zimmermann"

I hope this person reads this post.   I emailed it to Dr. Vickers and while he is challenged by this slam he is not deterred from his post as a physician who practices most credible forms of holistic cancer treatment.  And while we wait for the statistics to reveal his success we mark time knowing he is doing right by his patients by combining highly successful and effective therapies.  We continue to support Dr. Vickers in his pursuit to improve the Gerson Therapy.

Mike Adams - The Health Ranger ...SO BUSTED

If you are as half as sick and tired of men like Alex Jones as you are of Fox News you can now add former good guy (ever a good guy?) Mike Adams to your "ignore list" of greedy motherfuckers that do not deserve even a moment of your time or my time to write this.  Add to that Dr. Mercola who has run completely off the "more money for me!" rail.  We see in these men how money corrupts and the more temptation the more it corrupts them.  Human beings can not resist temptation.  They jump ship always.  ALWAYS.  The only reason I am writing this article is to ask "What if this happens to me?"  I am soon to announce a commercial website.  Once the business machine kicks in and I begin to see opportunities to profit (an ostensibly profit greatly) will I be tempted by products and services that are less that 100% high quality?  Well readers, if you know me at all you can rest assured the answer is a resounding NO.  I don't care if the damn thing goes bust.  I won't compromise the rock of integrity.  Not today, not ever.

The Magic of Purple Rice

PURPLE IS THE NEW GREEN...An 18 year study by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health showed that the women that consumed anthocyanins (purple colored natural foods) from their food showed a 32% reduction in heart attacks. Another study from the Kings College, in London, also found that women who consumed the most anthocyanins were least likely to have chronic inflammation,a condition linked to diabetes,cardiovascular disease, obesity and cancer. Since women are the "head cooks" of most households, we have the opportunity to create small dietary changes that can keep Diabetes 2 at bay. Remember that diabetes can shorten one's lifespan by many years, if left unchecked,not to mention the lower quality of life. It's time to take control over our own future health and that of our children. tHERE ARE MORE ANTHYCYANINS IN MY MICRONIZED PURPLE RICE THAN IN ANY OTHER FOOD!

Ten Ways To Get Smarter Every Day

1. Be smarter about your online time. 
Every online break doesn’t have to be about checking social networks and fulfilling your daily ration of cute animal pics. The Web is also full of great learning resources, such as online courses, intriguing TED talks, and vocabulary-building tools. Replace a few minutes of skateboarding dogs with something more mentally nourishing, suggest several responders.
2. Write down what you learn. 
It doesn’t have to be pretty or long, but taking a few minutes each day to reflect in writing about what you learned is sure to boost your brainpower. “Write 400 words a day on things that you learned,” suggests yoga teacher Claudia Azula Altucher. Mike Xie, a research associate at Bayside Biosciences, agrees: “Write about what you’ve learned.”
3. Make a “did” list.
A big part of intelligence is confidence and happiness, so boost both by pausing to list not the things you have yet to do, but rather all the things you’ve already accomplished. The idea of a “done list” is recommended by famed VC Marc Andreessen as well as Azula Altucher. “Make an I DID list to show all the things you, in fact, accomplished,” she suggests.
4. Get out the Scrabble board. 
Board games and puzzles aren’t just fun but also a great way to work out your brain. “Play games (Scrabble, bridge, chess, Go, Battleship, Connect 4, doesn’t matter),” suggests Xie (for a ninja-level brain boost, exercise your working memory by trying to play without looking at the board). “Play Scrabble with no help from hints or books,” concurs Azula Altucher.
5. Have smart friends. 
It can be rough on your self-esteem, but hanging out with folks who are more clever than you is one of the fastest ways to learn. “Keep a smart company. Remember your IQ is the average of five closest people you hang out with,” Saurabh Shah, an account manager at Symphony Teleca, writes.
“Surround yourself with smarter people,” agrees developer Manas J. Saloi. “I try to spend as much time as I can with my tech leads. I have never had a problem accepting that I am an average coder at best and there are many things I am yet to learn… Always be humble and be willing to learn.”
6. Read a lot. 
OK, this is not a shocker, but it was the most common response: Reading definitely seems essential. Opinions vary on what’s the best brain-boosting reading material, with suggestions ranging from developing a daily newspaper habit to picking up a variety of fiction and nonfiction, but everyone seems to agree that quantity is important. Read a lot.
7. Explain it to others.
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough,” Albert Einstein said. The Quora posters agree. Make sure you’ve really learned what you think you have learned and that the information is truly stuck in your memory by trying to teach it to others. “Make sure you can explain it to someone else,” Xie says simply.
Student Jon Packles elaborates on this idea: “For everything you learn–big or small–stick with it for at least as long as it takes you to be able to explain it to a friend. It’s fairly easy to learn new information. Being able to retain that information and teach others is far more valuable.”
8. Do random new things. 
Shane Parrish, keeper of the consistently fascinating Farnam Street blog, tells the story of Steve Jobs’s youthful calligraphy class in his response on Quora. After dropping out of school, the future Apple founder had a lot of time on his hands and wandered into a calligraphy course. It seemed irrelevant at the time, but the design skills he learned were later baked into the first Macs. The takeaway: You never know what will be useful ahead of time. You just need to try new things and wait to see how they connect with the rest of your experiences later on.
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future,” Parrish quotes Jobs as saying. In order to have dots to connect, you need to be willing to try new things–even if they don’t seem immediately useful or productive.
9. Learn a new language. 
No, you don’t need to become quickly fluent or trot off to a foreign country to master the language of your choosing. You can work away steadily from the comfort of your desk and still reap the mental rewards. “Learn a new language. There are a lot of free sites for that. Use Livemocha or Busuu,” says Saloi (personally, I’m a big fan of Memrise once you have the basic mechanics of a new language down).
10. Take some downtime. 
It’s no surprise that dedicated meditator Azula Altucher recommends giving yourself space for your brain to process what it’s learned–”sit in silence daily,” she writes–but she’s not the only responder who stresses the need to take some downtime from mental stimulation. Spend some time just thinking, suggests retired cop Rick Bruno. He pauses the interior chatter while exercising. “I think about things while I run (almost every day),” he reports.

Depression Benzodiazepine's and Magnesium (calcium)

Depression can be related to high and low levels of calcium and/or magnesium, with low levels being often-times associated with anxieties as well. After comparing the background of patients who required very high doses (4,000+mg) of calcium a day - just to reach near normal levels, it turned out that many had a history of benzodiazepine (tranquilizers / sedatives) use.  These drugs either affected their body's ability to properly utilize calcium and/or magnesium, or the mineral levels in these patients had already been very deficient before taking any medications - resulting in insomnia,
anxieties, or similar symptoms, and resulting in drugs (benzodiazepines) being prescribed instead of having the real cause (calcium and/or magnesium deficiencies) corrected. Unfortunately, this type of symptomatic drug therapy continues to be a trademark of modern medicine.

Far Infrared Saunas. What they are and how they work.

  How A Small Fever Can Be a Part of your Cancer Cure Strategy.

This very special type of sauna uses the same type of “radiant” energy the sun produces that gives life to the entire plant kingdom; it’s the wavelength that allows plants to make energy. It is NOT ultraviolet radiation. It’s the positives of the sun without the dangerous effects of solar radiation. (In fact, some evidence indicates it heals sun damage on the skin, including diminishing wrinkles and fine lines.)
FIR is a narrow band of energy that travels up to 3” into the body to increase blood flow and, thereby, regenerate damaged tissues, as well as activate immune cells.

Getting past the resistance donkey. Get to Yoga or to the Gym every time

How To Get Addicted To Working Out

Workout Resistance How is it that some people manage to work out regularly, week in week out, year after year, and do it with a smile on their face? Are they just superhuman? Nope. Far from it. They have just tapped into something that most people haven’t.
All humans (and this includes you) have one big weakness, and they use this weakness to their advantage. Here it is:
We humans are prone to addiction, but we can all learn to tap this resource
and use its power to fuel our motivation to work out consistently.
Think about the potential. Coffee drinkers don’t need to motivate themselves to drink their morning cup. They want to drink it. Smokers don’t need a reason to light up after a meal. They feel compelled to do it. Sugar addicts don’t need tempting to eat something sweet… cake anyone? And it’s no different from exercise. You can create a ‘hunger’ for working out too and that hunger helps to form a habit that you barely have to think about. All you need to do is learn how to cultivate the addiction.

Add a few drops of flax oil to all your juices

I am a juicing fanatic.  And I am also impressionable.  Longevity now, a for profit supplement and whole foods company run by David Wolfe does some pretty good videos and dispenses some pretty solid information.  Sure they're out to make money but it does not make them less credible.  David recently did a video about how we can jack up our juices effectiveness with a few drops of oil.  I think flax oil is what I am going to use.  Here is his video.  We are not affiliated and EcoHealthLab does not profit from sharing this video.

1/4 C chopped sunflower or pumpkin seeds, or combination of both
1/4 C hemp or sesame seeds
1 tsp ground dried garlic or to taste (I use more)
1 tsp dried onion or to taste
Up to 1/2 tsp dried herbs of choice: sage, thyme, oregano, etc. (opt)
Optional, for a cheese taste, 2Tbsps nutritional yeast
3 drops of liquid smoke or 1/2 tsp smoked paprika in 3/4 C water to make an easy to spread dough
OPTIONAL: Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Spread dough on lined cookie sheet using a rubber spatula, or whatever works best for you.


 Make it as even as possible, spreading to about 1/8 " thickness. Score the dough then place in the preheated oven.
After baking and cooling, break along score line.      Enjoy!
I hope you will like these and you can try different combinations of herbs, etc, depending on what you are in the mood for.

Now for something INCREDIBLY POSITIVE and heart warming.

YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS:  



This is ghastly BUT there is a great lesson here.

This is ghastly but it is identical to the deeply disturbed sport we play when shop the meat section of the grocery store where we knowingly kill pigs cows chickens lamb turkey and even chow down on frogs legs.  The human is homicidal by nature, murderous and cunning.  These people are an extreme example of what we as a culture do every day at the grocery store except you see it as a horror because it's an elephant - outside of our paradigm of acceptable behavior.  Any meat eater is as culpable as this family.  If you eat animals you are guilty - and when I do,  ...SO AM I.  When I choose to eat animals I am no different than this insane family except this elephant may have had the luxury of living in a natural setting.  Farm animals, otherwise known as "livestock" do not command the same rights, protection, favor or affection as this poor elephant - but in the mind of God they do.  "Thou shalt not kill."  What the fuck to you think that meant?  Is this the one commandment we should ignore?  Or should we just ignore them all?  Oh, that's right WE DO.

We let the pathological money grubbing meat industry hide the slaughter from us and somehow our rationalizations WIN as we sit down to a juicy steak, chicken leg or pork tenderloin.  Yum!  OUR psychopathy, OUR hypocrisy is the enemy, not this poor misguided family in the picture or even the evil meat industry people.  FOR WITHOUT OUR CONSENT AND MONEY THEY HAVE NOTHING.  YOU PROTECT THE ANIMALS.  IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DO SO AND NO ONE ELSES.  YOU ALONE AUTHORIZE THIS SLAUGHTER.

When you must have fish, how do you know it is clean? Here are some tips.

By: Kelley Herring, Healing GourmetShrimp Cocktail

Fukushima. The Gulf oil spill. Polluted fish farms. Genetically engineered salmon.

While seafood – and omega-3 rich fish in particular – has always been an excellent source of vital nutrients, widespread contamination has left many of us wondering…

What fish is safe?

Unfortunately, more than 90 percent of the seafood consumed in the United States is imported. What’s more, a report by Food & Water Watch, found that less than 2% of the 860,000 imported seafood shipments were visually inspected and less than 1% were actually tested for contaminants.

If that’s not enough, there is an industry-wide “bait-and-switch” that is occurring. Fraudulently labeled seafood is turning up in cans, restaurants and even in your local grocery. 

In today’s article, I’ll show you how you can protect yourself from the health-harming contaminants found in seafood and the clean options that will provide you with power-packed nutrition.

“Fishy” Seafood and The Safer Options

#1 Imported & Farm-Raised Catfish: Also called Basa and Swam, almost 90 percent of catfish comes from Vietnam – a country with loose regulations on the use of dangerous antibiotics and other chemicals. 

Safer Catch: Like catfish, pollock is a mild, white fish with a delicate flavor that’s naturally low in mercury. Look for pollock from the US, Canada and Norway which provide the most eco-friendly harvesting. 

#2 Eel: Also called unagi, eel is primarily farmed in China.  Toxic nitrofuran – a powerful carcinogen – and many other drugs and pesticides are used to reduce the spread of disease in eel pens. Eel is also highly contaminated with mercury and cancer-causing PCBs. 

Safer Catch: Swap eel for squid – an eco-friendly option that is low in contaminants, a great source of protein and easy to prepare.  

#3 Atlantic Flatfish: These fish – including sole, flounder and halibut – are high in contaminants. They also have a long history of being overfished, contributing to the collapse of our oceans.  

Safer Catch: Swap Atlantic halibut for Pacific halibut– a delicious option that’s environmentally friendly. 

#4 Imported & Farm-Raised Shrimp:  One of the dirtiest seafoods sold is imported farmed shrimp. Chemical residues, antibiotics and an assortment of other contaminants have been found in farmed shrimp.

Safer Catch: While avoiding imported, farmed shrimp can greatly reduce your exposure to contaminants, it’s important to note that 70 percent of domestic shrimp comes from the Gulf of Mexico. With the recent oil spill, this raises concern for the health of these shrimp stocks. Your best bet is MSC-certified wild-caughtPacific shrimp from Oregon

#5 Farmed Atlantic Salmon: Due to cramped quarters, rampant disease and a steady diet of “fish meal”, farmed salmon is rife with chemical contaminants ranging from pesticides and antibiotics to PCBs. In fact, fish consumption data shows that 800,000 U.S. adults eat enough PCBs from farmed salmon to exceed the allowable lifetime cancer risk 100 times over! Also of concern is the FDA’s consideration to allow genetically engineered salmon to be sold, unlabeled, in the near future. 

Safer Catch: Avoid chemical contaminants and “Frankenfish” by choosing only wild Alaskan salmon

#6 Atlantic Bluefin Tuna: According to the New York Times, Atlantic bluefin tuna have the highest levels of mercury and have reached near-extinction levels. Choosing more eco-friendly tuna varieties (like albacore or yellowfin) may not be the answer, either. Oceana  - a non-profit ocean protection group – collected 1,215 samples  from seafood vendors from 2010 to 2012. They found that 59% of tuna is not just mislabeled but it is almost entirely compromised of escolar - a fish once banned by the FDA. 

Safer Catch: Swap tuna for smaller (but just as flavorful) Atlantic mackerel and sardines.  You’ll enjoy all of the health benefits of omega-3 rich fish, without the high levels of mercury and contaminants…not to mention questionable contents. 

Keeping Healthy Fish on Your Plate and In Our Oceans

As the use of chemicals and unnatural agricultural practices soars to meet global food demand, it becomes increasingly more important to take a closer look at the origins of your food. 

Know your farmer and your fishermen. Read labels. Ask questions. 

While the health effects of these chemicals may not be immediately felt, their long term impact on human health is indisputable. Protect your health tomorrow by saying “no” to contaminated seafood today!

Why the Gerson Therapy is So Strict!

 It's funny the Gerson lifestyle states clearly that any added salt other than that which is in your vegetables naturally is not good for any human being - EVER.  When you read about how cells breathe and how they do so by balancing potassium and sodium you begin to understand why they are so tight on this issue. When you think about it ancient man did not have salt shakers did they?  No, of course not.  Modern cuisine is amazing!  Stuff tastes so good it's like totally addictive!  And that's the point.  Man has created a lot of stuff that is awfully yummy but that is also very bad for us - in the view of Max Gerson VERY bad for us.  So when we get older we must remember that to live well over sixty some sacrifices must be made for our best buddy (our body) and to give back to it some love in the form of proper fuel (diet) in order for it to function nicely as we age.  See Charlotte Gerson (age 92 - sharp as a tack.)  Hugs.   Bill Z

For those who must give up Parmesan cheese fear not!

Cheesy sprinkle Parmesan recipe

1/2 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 cup raw almonds (see note)

1/4 cup raw cashews (or more raw almonds)

1/2 tsp (scant) sea salt (about ¼ + 1/8 tsp)

1/4 tsp lemon zest (optional)


Put all the ingredients into a standing blender and pulse until very fine and crumbly. Don’t overprocess, just pulse several times. That’s it! Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.  Makes about 1 scant cup

Adult-Minded: Try adding 1⁄8 teaspoon of onion or garlic powder.

Kid-Friendly: I make this often for our kiddos, and make it quick and simple using just the nooch, nuts, and salt. You may enjoy added flavor depth from the zest, but it’s not essential.

Savvy Subs and Adds: To make this mixtre nut free, substitute the almonds and cashews with: 3 tbsp hemp seeds, 1 tbsp chia seeds (preferably white chia), and 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds (or sesame or sunflower).  Voila!

-----

Brazil nut Parmesan imitation cheese

1½ cups brazil nuts (see notes)

½ tsp (little scant) sea salt

1 ½ tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 275°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Process the brazil nuts in a food processor or blender until fine and crumbly. Don’t overprocess, or they will begin to heat and become pasty. Just pulse until finely crumbled.  Spread on the prepared pan. Toss in the salt, nutritional yeast, and lemon juice. Use your fingers to work these ingredients through the crumbled nuts.  Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, being sure to toss three or four times through the baking process (and check during last minutes of baking; the mixture should become dry and maybe a touch golden around the edges, but should not brown). Remove from the oven, let cool, and transfer to a container to refrigerate. Makes about 2 cups.

If This Apron Could Talk: If you cannot eat brazil nuts, I would substitute 1 1/2 cups raw almonds.  You could also try about 1 1/4 cup of almonds along with 1/4 cup of pine nuts.  After trying this for the first time, you might want to double your batch the next time round. It can disappear quickly! It’s one of my husband’s favorites; in fact, he keeps saying, “You should bottle this up and sell it”!

Kid-Friendly: Your little ones might love this just the way it is, but you can try bumping up the nooch another tablespoon to make it a little more cheesy. Also see Cheesy Sprinkle (recipe follows) for a cheesier-tasting topping.

Serving Suggestions: Any tomato-based pasta sauce will welcome this seasoning, as will a very modestly dressed pasta, such as one with olive oil and lemon juice. This topping works wonders on salads, and adds crunch and depth to cooked rice and other grains, as well as simple bean preparations.

When you simply must have fish!

Bronzino nova Scotia Canada European Seabass

It is rated as a best choice by the monterey bay aquarium seafood watch program. One can search their website for recommendations on any seafood. Same species of fish have more or less mercury, depending on where the fish is coming from. Good info at... http://www.montereybayaquarium.org//cr/seafoodwatch/web/sfw_factsheet.aspx?fid=384.

Why most people are full of it! Don't be a dick - don't be full ofshit!

Why most people are full of it!

I've got an exercise for you. For the next seven days, make a concerted effort to count how many people with whom you come in contact who end your conversation with "I'll call you," or "Let's get coffee!" or "We should connect for a drink!"

In two weeks, go back and visit the list you made, and see how many of them followed up on their suggestion.

The answer will more than likely be "none."







We live in a world where 99% of the people you meet are full of shit. It just is. It's not up for debate, it's not a scientific fact, it just is. I think this is the case for several reasons, but the most logical one is as follows: We all want to be thought of as "The nice guy." Ironically, by doing this, we usually come across as full of shit, as opposed to the nice guy. If we play the nice guy role in the beginning "Call me! Happy to help!" Or "Let's get coffee!" and then never follow up, or cancel plans, or never answer the resulting email, not only are we blowing our "nice guy" persona, but then we're proven as even worse than a "not nice guy," we're proven to be full of shit. At least if you're not nice and honest, you're true. But being nice on the surface and never returning the call moves you from "nice" to "not nice" to "full of shit." And that's the worst place to be.



Others are full of shit because they only look out for themselves, feel the need to attempt to win by taking everyone else down, or simply put, just don't care. Whatever the reason, just look around - there's no doubt we're living in a world full of people who are just full of shit. I'm on an Amtrak as I write this, and the guy next to me just got off his phone with a "OK, you too - Totally have to get together, no doubt, I'll call you!" He hangs up, and under his breath, as he's shaking his head, he mutters, "douche."

So if that's the case, there's one really awesome thing you can take out of it. If everyone is full of shit, it's never been easier to be at the top of your game and own the playing field. Think about it - It's the same logic as the kinda-thin girl who hangs out with fat girls - By comparison, she looks hot. If everyone else spends their time disappointing everyone else, all you have to do is rise 1% above the fray, and you win it all.

So here's how:

1) Exceed relatively low expectations. Again - We don't expect much out of people anymore. Used to be we'd expect stellar service on all counts - Whether it was the windshield being washed when we pulled up to the gas station, or our meal being brought to our table - that's pretty much gone nowadays.

Sure, it's awesome to set the bar totally high and exceed it. And I'm not saying don't do that. But focus on building your reputation piece by piece. If you don't want to have coffee with someone, don't suggest it as you're saying goodbye after your first meeting. If you DO want to have coffee with someone, why not suggest a Skype call, and when you email to follow up, upgrade it to coffee. Start off low and grow quickly. It's the easiest thing in the world to do.

2) Do "unexpected followup" daily. I have a big, big stack of business cards. Probably over 3,500, 4,000 cards. These are people I've met once, usually at a conference or trade show. They're not "contacts," per se, but they're also not complete strangers. I keep these cards in a giant fish bowl on my desk, where people who don't constantly worry about their weight would keep candy. Each day, I pull ten cards out, and email the people on them, just to say hi. No selling, not even that much talking about me - Just asking about them. How are they, what are they working on, etc. This keeps me "top of mind," and does two other things: Brings some of those people from "quasi-contacts" to "clients," and as beneficial, makes me first in their mind when someone they know asks if they know anyone who does what I do. Added bonus? I get to say hi. Nice touch.

3) Do the little things no one else does. You have any idea how many times I show up at early morning meetings with donuts? I call it "Insta-Hero." It's incredibly easy to be the Insta-Hero. Show up to an early morning meeting with Donuts. Make sure there's a full bowl of candy on your desk when people come by. ALWAYS carry a pen, a stick of gum, and a lighter. (And not just for people who smoke - Lighters can act as a scissor and burn down a loose thread, among millions of other uses.) Be the one who always does the little things, and you'll be the one people turn to when they have a budget to spend.

4) Find out what people are doing. If you had any idea on how many people I have Google Alerts, you'd call me the King of Stalking. But in fact, those alerts are one of the most helpful tools in my arsenal. Someone gets quoted? Drop a congratulatory note. Someone gets promoted? Send cookies. Someone takes a new job? Send a six pack. It's not hard, doesn't cost a lot, and keeps you well above the fold of mediocrity. Why? Because no one else does it. Again - When most people are full of shit, it doesn't take that much to not be! So don't be! Everyone wins! (Especially you!)

5) For God's sake, if you do nothing else, just be nice! A smile goes a hell of a long way towards proving you're not full of shit. Just by being a touch nicer - Offering to help someone put their bag in the overhead compartment, letting the obviously time-crunched person go ahead of you at Starbucks… You never know where these small, innocent acts can lead - But yo do know this - If they lead anywhere, they start off with the other person believing you're in fact, NOT full of shit - And from there, it's up to you to keep proving that.
