For Meat Eaters -the healthiest way to eat meat

How can I incorporate more meat into my diet without absorbing more chemicals?
Rotate sources of protein to minimize over exposing yourself to pesticides, anti-biotics, heavy metals or any drug residue that may have been given to the animal.

Deep water fish accumulates higher levels of mercury including Swordfish, Shark and Tuna. Smaller fish have shorter life spans and accumulate less levels of mercury. The fish containing the highest amounts of mercury are from the inland waters of the US Midwest and the state of Florida. Many fish fresh of the boat these days have mercury levels so high that health experts consider eating them once a week is dangerous for good health. Make sure you have a strong and healthy immune system before eating them!

When you cook the fish grill or broil to allow the juices to come out which releases the heavy metals. Also trim the fat off the fish as heavy metals are stored in fat.

Avoid farm raised fish. Avoid fresh water fish unless it comes from high mountain lakes and streams that are away from commercial enterprises. 

Why are processed and cured meats considered ‘bad’?
When you read the ingredients list of cured fish, bacon, ham, beef jerky, salami, sausages, bologna, frankfurters, deviled ham, meat spreads, potted meats, spiced ham, smoked fish products or package lunch meats you’ll find words that may be challenging to pronounce, they may look like a foreign language. These usually include nitrites or nitrates and are used as a color fixative to give meats a blood red color to appeal more to the eye and palate. Both additives have been found to cause cancer and tumors in test animals. The Safe Shoppers Bible reported that children who ate hot dogs cured with nitrite a dozen or more times monthly have a risk of leukemia ten times higher than normal. And children born to mothers who consume hot dogs once or more weekly during pregnancy are twice as likely to have childhood brain tumors.
Germany banned nitrites and nitrates in 1997.

Why should I only eat Organic and Free Range eggs?
They are far more nutritious and are free or pesticides, hormones and anti-biotics. Free range animals are free to roam, get exercise and eat what they were designed to eat – grass.

Is meat fat good for me?
Yes, the fat from Organic and Free range meat is a great protein source for our bodies. If the meat is non-organic then avoiding eating the fat is a good idea since all heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides and anti-biotics are stored there. 

With love always... and some peace ;) Liana

Hello September!!!

Hey everyone!

My last blog post was well over a month ago! I am super excited for the month of September and will be leaving India for Australia for 3 months! Ready to absorb Aussie land again :)

Since wrapping filming "Backwater" I have been flat out, doing doing doing and I realized in all my doing that if I'm not being being being than I have missed so many precious moments. So I have consciously chosen to slow it down, relax, enjoy, sleep and 'be' fully where I am. I have noticed that when I am present and aware in each moment things happen that I could not have predicted and the experience is unique and majestic. I become ALIVE.

I read a quote today from a book "The Art Of Peace" - "Each day of human life contains joy and anger, pain and pleasure, darkness and light, growth and decay. Each moment is etched with nature's grand design - do not try to deny or oppose the cosmic order of things."

This absolutely resonates true for me. And I feel that my always ongoing intention is to be fully and completely where I am each and every moment. Obviously at times I am not and the experience feels like something is missing, and I usually think if I were to physically die right not this isn't a very fulfilling way to go... so I may as well be full and complete and just choose that NOW! :)

And here I am in India - a wonderful and also challenging place for me to be. People who have spent time in India may know what I am speaking about - a place that is unpredictable and at times can leave one feeling stripped of all simple luxuries (like toilet paper lol!) which certainly adds to the challenge. India feels like a cleansing place to relinquish all mind/ego based wants, cravings and 'needs'. I am promoting a film "The Man In The Maze" which releases here September 2nd. Here's an article by The Hindustan Times on Katrina Kaif and I... possibly shooting an action film together?!!! Katrina is a Bollywood star and an amazing talented human through song, dance and film.

Here's a photo of the "Backwater" crew on one of our last nights shooting in June. I had so much fun... and absolutely adore these people... and am looking forward to working with the same crew for shooting "Boomerang" in Australia in 2013! Also directed by the talented Christopher Schrack :)

This photo makes me smile every time I look at it!

I am so excited for 2012! It absolutely feels like the beginning of something HUGE! Like a global shift in human awareness and consciousness. Chris and I were speaking on skype last night about this and how we both feel like we are at a point in humanity where it could go either way... ending the world in destruction, war, blood, guts, violence and guns OR we can shift to a new awakening, "A New Earth" as Eckhart Tolle speaks of. We all have to find it individually. Different things work for each person, but I do think we can either operate from 2 things, LOVE or FEAR. I prefer LOVE... it feels most natural. Focusing on that the world is ending in 2012 feels so limiting and suppressing of vital life energy... I choose to focus on the love and goodness present on earth and in humanity. There is ALOT of it! :)

My sister Caitlin came to NY in July and we hung out for 2 weeks :) It was so nice to see her and totally absorb who she has become as a person, I am so proud of the choices she has made and is a very nice human being :)

We both totally indulged in the largely sized American portions... haha! And I was absolutely in need of a juice cleanse after all the processed foods and sugars (thank you BEET)! I've never seen a popcorn or soda sized like this in Australia! Certainly no complaints from us though... it's all about the balance right...?!

Caitlin will be back in New York next year as part of crew for "ALIVE New York 2012"! It is a health and well being focused event. I describe it as a mission to unite humanity in a state of ALIVENESS throughout the event. I imagine all the people attending and watching the live streaming from all over the world will be elevated in a natural high, a 'higher vibrational state' as Esther Hicks/Abraham describes, an elevated consciousness :) I am so excited for it, and although the actual event is on June 15th and 16th of 2012 the ALIVE paradigm has already begun. I am a co-founder along with the amazing Josh and Anna Scurry. We are a perfect tripod that are totally in synchronicity with each other. An incredible experience it has been creatively designing the event thus far and building the unique ALIVE team! We have joined forces with the powerful team at Top Shelf Network who will live stream ALIVE globally! Check out www.AliveNewYork.com to see what is created so far and the people who are making this possible. You can also connect with the ride on facebook www.facebook.com/ALIVENewYork or be inspired and come ALIVE on the ALIVE YOUTube channel! :) Enjoy!
