Hello GenuineAid readers! Today I decided to share an AMAZING video I watched recently. I know that many people most of the time think that those who are eating only Raw fruits and vegetables are weak, skinny, and maybe even get cancer. Now, did you know that if you eat raw foods the RIGHT way, then you can dramatically improve your overall health and energy? You really can boost your physical and even mental health by going totally natural. To get inspired more I REALLY recommend watching this video below.
This Video is from YouTube and it’s called World Record One Armed SUPERMAN Pushups from RawBrahs. RawBrahs are solar powered Christian raw food enthusiasts radically honest nomadic elitist minimalist brothers with DOMS, and are representing our Father God & Mother Earth.
For this article I decided to share my family’s current Healthy Energy Salad which we have been enjoying. Yep, I said my family, not just me or my wife, the kids LOVE it too. I mean seriously, this is not “one of those salads” or “healthy but disgusting” meals. This salad is very easy to make and almost totally Raw, the corn and the olives came from cans. Also, this salad doesn’t get disgustingly soft, soggy, and rotten for at least three or more days. Continue reading →
Have ever heard of a fruit called Date? Not as time date, but Date as a name of an actual fruit. I’ve never heard of these fruits until recently some of friends and family started talking about them and even letting me try some. Their taste, look, and feel somewhat reminds me of raisins only in a tripled or quadrupled size. Dates have an elongated shape. Continue reading →
Are You Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead? If Yes, Then You Must Watch This Video Called “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross. Read its details below and choose how you would like to watch it…
Documentary’s Synopsis From Amazon’s Page:
FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health while traveling across America, juicer in tow, and inspiring others to do the same.
Documentary’s Editorial Review From Amazon’s Page:
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well- with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle. While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well. What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.

I love eating fresh sweet apricots. Another reason I love apricots is because they are very healthy. Some people get confused between apricots and peaches. Apricots are smaller, less fuzzy and their kernels (or seeds) have a smooth shell. Peaches on the other hand are larger than apricots, and they have much fuzzier skin and their seeds have a really thick and veiny shell. In this article I’ll be talking mainly about apricots, but if you want to read about peaches, then go to this article called “Peaches Nutrients and Benefits“.
Binomial name of apricots is Prunus Armeniaca from the family of Rosaceae. In Russian language apricot is called Aбрикос, you can pronounce it like this Abreekoss, or something like that ;) Some people believe that apricots are native fruits of Armenia, because of its scientific name Prunus Armeniaca which means Armenian Plum. Apricot trees are pretty sensitive to big temperature changes, but the healthier trees should be able to withstand those temperatures. Continue reading →

I ate some cherries recently and at the same time I wanted to know what kind of Nutrients they contained. For some reason I assumed that I already had an article about Cherries, but the only article I found is How to get Cherry stain off Naturally. I was very surprised to find out that I didn’t have an article posted yet about Cherries. Cherry fruit is pretty popular around the world and I try to make sure that I have every popular fruit and/or vegetable included in GenuineAid blog.
The family of a Cherry is called Rosaceae and the Genus is Prunus. There are lots of species of the cherry. My article is going to be about the sweet cherry also know as Wild cherry, Sweet cherry, Gean, or botanically speaking Prunus Avium. In America I never heard anyone call the sour and the sweet cherries with their different names. In Russian language we always called the hard sweet Cherry as Черешня – Chereshnya, and the soft sour Cherry is called Вишня – Veeshnya. Personally, I never liked the sour Cherries, they are more acidic which is why they are much more sour than the sweet Cherry. At the same time, I just remembered that there is one dish that I really like made with sour Cherry, in Russian it’s called Вареники – Vareniki. It’s like dumplings, only instead of meat inside of the boiled dough, people put cleaned out sour cherries without the pits (or seeds). Continue reading →
