"A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels" Proverbs 1:5 and also: " ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith" D&C 88:118

So in order to follow this counsel, I've been thinking for a while now, that I wanted to share my personal thoughts on the word of wisdom with all my friends that believe in it, that believe it was God given. I repeat, they are my personal views from all I have been able to study! So let's move on...

"The Word of Wisdom", for those of you that have never heard of it, was a revelation given by God to the LDS prophet Joseph Smith, the person known to have been the instrument in the hands of the Lord to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this latter dispensation, or in other words, in recent times, after it was lost. This revelation was given on February 27, 1833 in Kirtland, Ohio, and I'm going to share a few parts from it (for the complete revelation go HERE).

Cacao, cocoa, or raw chocolate, is the second SUPERFOOD in the list. What? Chocolate is healthy? Really? Yes, and no. Cacao is healthy in its raw form, and I will list all the properties it has in just a minute, but the commercial chocolate we can buy at the normal grocery store is not healthy, in fact is very unhealthy, for many reasons.

First of all, commercial chocolate is just a reflection of chocolate, since most of those products at the store only have a very low percentage of cacao on the higher the percentage, the less unhealthy the product is. Second, the way they prepare commercial chocolate kills the majority of the properties of cacao. They follow a roasted, boiled, heated, process that eliminates almost all the good properties of cacao. Third, all those products, come with their share of unhealthy additives, preservatives, and empty calorie ingredients, such as high fructose corn syrup, refined sugar, and many other "bad stuff". So if you ever had any hopes that I was gonna tell you that your usual chocolate candy bar you have everytime you visit your favorite insurance agent (inside joke), or everytime you wait for your car to get washed, or anytime you open your pantry and think nobody is watching...then you're gonna have to wake up from your dreams, cause they are NOT healthy!

Today, my beautiful wife Janeen and our daughter Annabelle, left me alone for their monthly girl Munoa lunch, and I decided I should go to the movies, since it's an almost impossible task having Annabelle with us.

However, after the movie, I took my electric VECTRIX scooter to pay a visit to the antique stores in downtown Provo to browse for a new book shelve for my disorganized office full of books. On my way there, I thought I had to find a place to have lunch, since Janeen was already enjoying her own one. I decided to look for a healthy place to stop by and grab something, but I wanted to find a new place, since we always visit the same 3 of 4 restaurants that are relatively healthy in the Provo/Orem area. So there I was, enjoying my scooter drive on a beautiful sunny fall day, trying to find a place to nutritiously feed myself. Now, I come from a scientific background, and I'm used to pretty difficult problem solving, but I gotta tell you, finding a healthy restaurant nowadays is an impossible task! I kept on looking and looking, but all I saw was the same kinds of chain restaurants, with a slightly different name tag, but with the same menu.

Well, a few of you have begged me not to take so much time in between posts, and I'm trying to leave my writing laziness behind and move my butt in order to enlighten you with the most precious knowledge there is about food.

We are talking about Goji Berries today, which makes number one SUPERFOOD in many health nut books. These are consider fruit, and there is an estimated eighty-five species of them or more just in North and Central America. They were supposed to be brought by people who migrated from Asia, but you never know. These berries, because of the strength and nutrients they possess, they easily adapt to different kinds of environments, desserts, tropical, and freezing winters areas. It has been grown by Chinese, Mongolian, and Tibetan people for an estimated five thousand years.

There are different kinds of foods:

1. BAD FOODS: These are the foods that not only they don't help you get nourished but actually corrupt your body with poisons, toxins, excitotoxins, empty calories, and substances that interrupt the normal functioning of your digestive and physiological system, cell metabolism and wellbeing. They shouldn't even be considered foods and they should be vanished from the market. Unfortunately, they have control over the food industry and are present in people's everyday's lives, and hence the reason for all important autoimmune diseases that affect us nowadays (Cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, etc.). These foods can be found at pretty much any chain restaurant (with a few exceptions), some other restaurants that are not part of a chain, all processed foods we find at the supermarket, especially those that include high fructose corn syrup, refined sugars and flours, other products that have been sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, and other products to increase production and durability in an unnatural way, and of course all GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms), like many of the corn and soy products that are not organic.
