Is Oatmeal Acid Forming?


Who would have thunk it? Yes, your favorite winter breakfast, oatmeal, is contributing to that over acidic situation in your body! Not to worry, there are ways around this.

We talk to many folks at live events and Health Shows, many of these folks are doing their very best to eat healthy just like you. Though oatmeal and blueberries do have some benefits, these benefits are largely outweighed by the oatmeal's contribution to the acidosis condition created in the body. You can easily get the antioxidant benefits of blueberries from other real foods such as blackberries or our Olive Leaf powder.

Check out our Acid/ Alkaline Food List: This helps to give you a basic food list to start to make more alkalizing food choices.

All grains, like oatmeal, form an acidic residue in the body. That doesn't mean you have to give them up completely, but just be aware that if you want to continue to eat as you do, you will have to "on purpose" make sure you are getting excellent natural minerals like Suede Hills Alfalfa or  pH Happy Caps inside you to help escort that acid out.

It takes a mineral to escort out an acid. If you do not get enough minerals, your body stores that excess acidic residue in fat cells and in other ways, all of which create an acidic condition at the cellular level. If the cells aren't happy and alkaline, neither are you!

Remember that acidosis is the main cause of most if not all sickness and disease. This is because at the root we are talking about what is going on in your body at a cellular level.

Acidic cells = fat, sickness and disease
Alkaline cells = fit, ease,and rejuvenation

Dr. William Howard Hay, in 1933 wrote "The most fundamental cause of disease, i.e. the accumulation of excess acid in the body (latent acidosis), occurs when the body's intake and production of acid residue exceeds its ability to eliminate it. This occurs primarily as a result of unwise food choices, improper food combining and consumption of chemical food additives and drugs."

So here are a couple of options:

  • Reduce how many times per week you eat oatmeal, so instead of 5 days a week, try only 1 or 2 times.
  • Use other dark antioxidant-rich fruits like blackberries, black or red grapes or raisins instead blueberries most of the time.
  • Switch to a fabulous green shake like Phil's Ultimate Breakfast with a Schmunkie.

    Watch how to make this recipe:

  • Try a sliced apple that you dip into Almond butter instead for breakfast. You will be surprised at how long it will keep you satisfied!

We are so happy to be a part of your healthy living journey!

Keep up the great work!!


Health to You!!

MSG in Health Products


Most people have heard of the dangers of 'MSG' or Monosodium Glutamate. However,many don't realize that it is in almost everything that is prepackaged or manufactured. MSG is not only cheap, but it enhances flavours of whatever food it is put into making it even more 'irresistible'. Since people have been alerted to the troubles and dangers of MSG most companies avoid using it by that name. However, the manufacturers have not eliminated using MSG, they have simply renamed it.

What's worse is manufacturing companies are adding greater quantities than in the past. They are even targeting people who purchase so called 'health products'. Most health powders and bars contain some type of MSG. Unfortunately those energy/protein bars you've been eating to stay healthy probably have calcium caseinate or whey which usually are laced with MSG. From our research anything with the words isolates or hydrolyzed are actually hidden MSG.

The next time you're about to consume your quick and easy health bar or protein shake you should read the label on the back and look for any of these other names used to hide MSG:

  • Anything "hydrolyzed"
  • Any "hydrolyzed protein"
  • Any "flavors" or "flavoring"
  • Anything "enzyme modified"
  • Anything containing "enzymes"
  • Anything "protein fortified"
  • Anything "fermented"
  • Anything "isolate"
  • Anything "enriched"
  • Anything "vitamin enriched"
  • Calcium caseinate, Sodium caseinate
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • Yeast food
  • Yeast nutrient
  • Soy protein
  • Soy protein concentrate
  • Whey protein
  • Whey protein concentrate

These are only a few names manufacturing companies are using to mask the use of MSG. If you are looking for an easy and great source of protein that does not contain any fillers or chemicals Suede Hills Alfalfa Powder is for you.

Our Alfalfa Powder is organic real food, packed with more protein than beef, classed as raw food, and is full of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and digestive enzymes. All of which your body utilizes to recover after a long workout or for the rest of us, just dealing with the day to day stresses of life.

Avocado Power


Calling all guac lovers: Avocados keep you thin, protect your vision and may even prevent cancer. Read below to find out more about their amazing benefits.

Eye opener

The Power of AvocadoesProtect your vision with a few slices of avocado at lunch or dinner. Avocados are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants found in the retina that keep eyes healthy; they also may help prevent age-related problems like cataracts and macular degeneration.

Cancer fighter

Extracts from avocados kill or stop the growth of precancerous cells that lead to oral cancer and may have a similar effect on other cancers, according to a recent study. Researchers credit the fruit's unique combo of nutrients-which include folate and vitamins C and E.

Nutrient booster

Add avocado to salsa for a bigger health payoff. A study from The Ohio State University found that people absorbed four-and-a-half times more of the cancer-fighter lycopene from the tomatoes when avocado was added; the healthy fats help you absorb more nutrients.

Healthier fat

Skip the mayo, and go for creamy avocado on your sandwich. It packs four grams of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (which lowers cholesterol), two grams of fiber, and one gram of protein per ounce, making it a lower-fat, more-filling substitute for the white stuff.

Try Cindy's amazing raw chocolate pie made with Avocados you can now enjoy a healthier dessert.

Better than Green Tea


Spring has sprung here at Suede Hills Organic Farm, most evidently shown by the amount of dandelions spreading across our lawn! Our Stevia beds have been tilled by our hard workers and are pretty much ready to be planted in! We will still have a good month or two before the plants are ready to go into the ground though. The trees are starting to grow their leaves, even the olive trees are beginning to leaf out!

With the weather unpredictable during spring many people like to have tea when it gets a little chilly after those spring rains. If you haven't tried Olive Leaf Tea you should. It's delicious, has a mild taste to it. However Olive Leaf Tea has much more going for it than just flavour!

Did you know Olive Leaf Tea has ten times more antioxidants than Green Tea? It's true! Oleuropein, found in olive leaf, is amazing and can work wonders!

Oleuropein has been found to help:

  • combat viruses, inhibiting them from replicating

  • lower cholesterol

  • lower blood pressure(by expanding the blood vessel)

  • keep away fungus

  • keep away bacteria

  • keep away viruses

  • prevent cold sores and herpes

  • maintain a strong and balanced immune system

  • prevent shingles

  • fight the common cold and flu bugs

  • reduce fevers

  • inhibit and destroy yeast

If you have found that you've been sick recently or that you could use some of these health benefits, try some Olive Leaf Tea for yourself!
