Human Waste in Soy Sauce

Without a doubt, ‘imitation’ Chinese soy sauce represents one of the most disgusting man-made foods on Earth. Typically, this non-traditional soy sauce takes only 3 days to manufacture – using the cheapest ingredients like, hydrolyzed vegetable protein (in lieu of soybeans); GMO-derived corn syrup; and artificial flavoring or coloring. But, if you think that is sickening, you won’t believe what really goes inside fake soy sauce. Warning – if don’t have a strong stomach – avoid reading the rest of this article. The Chinese, in their brilliance, have found a way to cut the cost of soy sauce production by using human hair along with ...

Date Syrup: Nutritional Benefits and Recipe

We are approaching the ‪#‎40dayfruitfast‬ and I wanted to share my‪#‎rawvegan‬ version of ‪#‎datesyrup‬. This syrup has an excellent iron content (good for anemia), is rich in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibers (good for constipation). Dates themselves are an excellent energy booster with the right type of sugar our body needs. Add to your nut mils to increase the nutrient content. Use it in your teas or anything else that you would use maple syrup or agave. I even use less water and make for a date caramel. For my thoughts on agave check out my article "Buyer Beware" here:http://dropsquadkitchen.com/the-...

Time to Eat

In order to have an unapologetically healthy livit  it is mandatory to exercise as well as maintain a specific time table of when you eat. the body needs 8 hours to consume and assimilate and  eliminate. These are the things you need to know: 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Assimilation Phase is the only time you should be eating. Outside of the 11am - 7pm time frame, tea, veggie/fruit juice, and water is fine. (In fact, we recommend a lemon eaten or squeezed first thing, with warm herbs, like tea, following shortly after) 7p.m. - 3a.m. Elimination Phase This phase is the foundation and when your body is assimilating all of the nutrie...

Meat Police

This pic says a lot.  We rebuild or destroy our bodies everyday based off our lifestyle we INHABIT them.It speaks to the universal criminal activity of eating meat as well as the karmic  spiritual and medical repercussions. More importantly by eating animal flesh and byproducts our bodies' mainframe downloads the animal's genetic information when we eat them. The same goes for vegetables, their RNA strands occupy our bloodstream and regulate our genes. Either way you do the crime you will do the time.    

Make Something Out of Nothing

2 statements that really annoy me are: " I'm broke" Come on people this is the era of the law of attraction. We are the sum of what we think. The other statement is "It is too expensive to eat healthy." Are you kidding me? No for real you are whining like a baby goat. Expensive as opposed to what? That lypo suction you are thinking about getting, or all the medical and prescription dollars you will shuffle out during your lifetime because healthy food was just wayyyyy to expensive.  Get out the pre-made box people before you are six feet deep before your time.  You are buying cheap end habit forming counterfeit food and on the other end ...

Inside Out

Everything put into the human body is juiced before it can be processed and anything that can not be “juiced” is dumped. The salivary glands are very underestimated in the general discussions on health but the specialize in liquification of solids to facilitate proper nutrient uptake. All food should be slowly and completely masticated before swallowing. Incomplete mastication throws off the peristaltic wave. The waves should be around 22 BPM, this is a electromagnetic process an if disturbed will result in a poor blood supply. This wave follows “food” from mouth all the way to excretion. You have more than one brain, in fact you have more ...

Water

People wonder now more than ever what type of water is best to drink. Ninety percent of us are buying bottled water and that has escalated  into what type of bottled water is best and many other questions. The newest of which is should I and how can I alkalize my water? First thing I need to state is twofold: 1. 60% or more bottled water is from the tap (meaning sink water) 2. 60% or more bottled water is acidic and cannot be absorbed in through the cell walls. Another thing about bottled water is the bottle. When the bottles are left on the shelf too long, are frozen or warmed even slightly the plastic releases dioxins, carcinogens and ...

The Health Risk of Agave: Buyer Beware

The “sugar” seems to have gotten my whole family and has been taking them out for a few decades now. I have been cautious since I even heard the word diabetes mentioned in my family. I went from White Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup to Cane Sugar, turbinado, sucanat etc. to Maple Sugar, Date Sugar, and Maple Syrup to….Agave. Damn, it was in the Food List so IT COULD NOT BE WRONG and I would not dare question THAT LIST. Plus it was cheaper than Grade B Maple Syrup anyday. Once I was for a lack of a better word “recruited” into the Vegan Mafia run by the Godfather Minister Enqi, I started taking a moor scientific look at things.  ...

Gluten and Soy Free Veggie Burgers

My goal for the Drop Squad Kitchen Brand  foods are for everything to be made in house.  I have accomplished that with 90% of the Menu. I am especially proud of the veggie burger because I have never been completely satisfied with any store bought veggie burgers packed with lord knows what as a meat replacer. I know that I desired a veggie burger that was gluten free, soy free, and wheat free. I also knew that the texture had to be as pleasing to the palate as the taste. I set out to use ingredients that have a great texture and flavor all by themselves  for the base. I chose mushrooms, black beans, and lentils. To add texture and fill I ...

Organic chickpea burger on gluten free bun

For the longest time I just made my son hot lunches and put them in a stainless steel thermos, but this year he wasn't having it. He wanted "sammiches" lol. Thankfully I struck vegan, soy and gluten free gold with these bad boys. At the end of his first day of school my first question wasn't, how did you like your teachers, did you have fun, what did you learn? It was: how was your sandwich? And...he loved it!!!

Young Patrick:The newest edition to the Drop Squad Kitchen


Do not eat anything that says fat free or sugar free on the label.

Whatever is trending right now, rest assure it is trending on commercial labels of your favorite store bought foods too. Do not believe that just because a label reads, light,  fat free or sugar free does not mean it is healthy. If a label reads sugar free be guaranteed that there is an artificial sweetener which is only like one strand away from crack chemically. If a label reads light or  fat free, be guaranteed that it is light o the nutrients  and loaded with chemical and artificial everything and unrealistic amounts of sugar and processed carbs.
