May 2017 - Is Your Protein Powder Making You Sick?


I think spring is going to bypass us and hopefully we will head right into summer weather, SOON! We had near freezing temperatures just a week ago.   

Good thing we start the Green Stevia seedlings indoors for the first few months! If all goes well weather-wise we will be planting them out in the field in the first part of June. Farming is unpredictable so we just have to roll with it. Mother Nature certainly has a mind of her own. Sometimes I think she just plays with us to have a good laugh.

p.s. That tip I gave you last month about the poultice.... well I got stung by a hornet/ wasp or something like that the other day. My arm started to swell around the sting. Phil made me his famous poultice, he put the mixture on the sting. He wrapped the area with plastic wrap and then he covered it with a leg-warmer (like a sock but with two open ends). I left it on overnight.

In the morning I washed the poultice off. The swelling and redness were gone. It started to get a little itchy and Phil told me to leave it alone. The itchiness meant the healing was starting. He also found out recently that these insects are carnivores so it can also be an issue when they bite, because enzymes are released
which are designed to break down flesh. This may also be why people have such strong reactions to them. 

Is your Protein Powder making you sick?

I know those of you who are making the effort to live and eat healthy are probably wondering what the heck am I talking about. After all you did buy your protein powder at the "Health Food" store, right? It has been my experience that most of the protein powders are acid-forming.

Why is this a big deal?

Acid is the enemy of the body unless you are getting enough real minerals to escort these toxins out of your body, as was the original design. This wouldn't be a big deal either if the rest of the food we buy at the store was actually grown in healthy mineral-rich soil. But what we get for the most part is what "they" call food that has been grown in an assortment of chemicals. None of which your body has the ability to utilize for your benefit!


Anything from an animal is acid-forming, so that eliminates Whey protein right off the bat. Not to mention the fact that animal protein takes more effort for your body to break down and access the protein. Whereas plant protein is more bio-available/easily utilized.

Another thing to consider is the Non-Organic nature of the Whey. Most mass-produced cows (that provide the milk that the Whey is a by-product of) are eating GMO'd feed which has been treated with the latest chemical fertilizers, pesticides, & herbicides.

In addition, these animals have had their fill of injections of one sort or another along the way. All of which makes its way into the human body via the Whey protein powder folks consume.


Pea, Rice, Hemp protein, though plant based are once again, acid-forming. Most are not even organic, and usually made from the by-product (leftovers/waste) from some other manufacturing process.


Congrats to all you awesome folks who have chosen Suede Hills Organic Alfalfa powder or capsules! You are getting the most nutrient-rich, alkalizing plant protein!

We have had several body builders and fitness enthusiasts switch to our Alfalfa for their main protein source. They have found that their recovery time after workouts is significantly improved. Plus the soreness caused by lactic acid (from whey and other dairy products) has been greatly reduced and in some cases disappears all together.

FYI: Phil and I have depended on our Organic Alfalfa powder as our main source of protein for the last 9 years. We count on this same wonderful Organic Alfalfa for all of our minerals and vitamins. NO "manufactured" supplements for us!! We get our omega's from the seeds that we add to our daily Phil's Ultimate Breakfast with a Schmunkie.

If you want to live well one must eat well. Remember, how and where your food is grown is key. Don't think that because you bought "food" at the health food store that it is actually healthy for you.

A Schmunkie (or Motivator) a day keeps the doctor away!
