Secretive Attempt SB 110 (SB 3058) Defeated in Hawaii!!


Soon after two recent county bills were passed in Kauai and the Big Island, state legislatures tried to circumvent it by introducing a bill that would’ve wiped out regulating Genetically Engineered (GE) crops and pesticides.   A policy dictated by the state, not the people of Hawaii.

But the efforts of MANY  in Hawaii put a stop to it!  More and more of us are getting educated and are more aware of how there is a need to put a stop to this madness.  Below is the link by Center for Food Safety for the full story.


So many countries already reject GMOs.  See link below.  And from all my reading, research and my own personal healing journey, I am more convinced today that GMOs have NO place in our bodies!  


 Support clean eating and local organic farmers.


Baked Crusted Hake Loins over Sweet Garlic Brussel Sprouts

It has been a long journey trying to stick to a limited diet based on Donna Gates’ Body Ecology Diet.  I started Stage 1 two years ago.  And transitioned to State 2 as I thought I was ready.  Boy, was I wrong!

So, here I am again, plugging away on Stage 1 of BED!  And when one’s diet is limited, creative juices start to flow.  Thank goodness!  Otherwise, I will not survive this diet!

In able for me to be successful in this stage, I need to plan ahead.  But there are times when I am not able to menu plan.  But do try to stock up on the ingredients I know I can eat.  So I try to make what is readily available in my kitchen.

Here’s a recipe  I eventually came up with based on BED.  And thought I’d share it since it turned out sooo good!  And you can change the measurements based on your preferred taste.


Baked Crusted Hake Loins 

  • 1 bag of Wildcaught Hake Loins — defrosted (purchased at Costco)
  • EVOO
  • Real Lime Juice
  • 1 whisked free-range egg (optional)
  • Chickpea crumbs by ChickPea Naturals (or preferred crumbs)
  • Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper

Place defrosted hake loins in an oven dish.  Poke holes in loins with a fork (to allow EVOO and lime juice to penetrate the fish.  Drizzle each fish with lime juice and EVOO.  Dip each fish in the whisked egg (optional).  Mix last three ingredients.  Coat fish.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 35 minutes or until golden brown on the outside and flaky on the inside.  Use a fork to test for doneness.

Sauteed Sweet Garlic Brussels Sprouts

  • 1 bag of Brussels Sprouts (Costco or if you find organic even better)
  • Chopped Garlic
  • Chopped Onions
  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Lakanto (or preferred natural sweetener)
  • Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper

Clean brussels sprouts.   Cook whole or cut in halves.  Drizzle a tbsp of coconut oil on pan at medium high heat for less than a minute.  Sautee garlic and onions for 1 minute.  Mix in cleaned brussels sprouts.  Season with the last three ingredients to desired taste.  Sautee for 15 min or more.  Check with a fork to see if brussels sprouts are tender on the inside.

Place a bed of brussels sprouts on a serving dish and top with the loins.  And strew sauteed garlic and onions on each fish.  Serves 5 to 6 people.

Serve immediately. Enjoy!  😉
