Body Odor Comes From What You Eat!
your smell is a nutritional matter!
Let's face it, nobody loves body odor. Many think that perspiration is the cause of body odor, however, sweat is actually odorless; myth busted!
Bacteria and toxic waste are the real odor culprits.
The body's metabolism is responsible for the breakdown of chemicals including waste products comprised of environmental chemicals, processed foods, and waste material the body naturally produces. The liver, kidneys, intestines, and lymphatic system are responsible for eliminating these toxins.  However, these organ systems can easily clog up and cause odors to emanate from the body.  In this case, a detoxification program that cleanses the liver, kidneys, and colon is necessary. Other causes of body odor can be dietary imbalances, resulting in constipation or a deficiency of magnesium or zinc.
Each person has a different body chemistry and reacts differently to foods. Large consumption of meat may cause a foul body odor for some, but may not for others. Some individuals cannot metabolize foods containing large amounts of choline, such as eggs, fish, liver, and legumes. 
Certain foods and drinks, such as onions, garlic, curry, certain spicy foods, coffee ,and alcohol, are also prime causes of body odor.  Fried and baked goods containing rancid fats and oils may also be culprits for some.
If the body is in an acidic state, which is an oxygen depleted state determined by diet, bacteria flourishes and causes the body to emit a foul smell.
It is important to:
1) Assess whether or not you have body odor.
2) Determine which specific foods cause you to emit a smell.
3) Stop eating those foods.
Any food that causes body odor is considered toxic for that body. It must be avoided! Otherwise the body is pushed into a state of toxicity and is susceptible to disease and infection.
Another helpful tip:
Stop using deodorant. Body odor causing bacteria is easily neutralized by acid. Spritz a little lemon juice or vinegar under arms. Not only will you not smell but you will also avoid the list of hazardous chemicals found in deodorants and antiperspirants.

It is no secret that peas are by far my FAVORITE food. I might even be addicted to them... Besides being out of this world delicious, peas are loaded with protein, b-vitamins, manganese, and iron. They are easy on the digestive tract and provide a ton of energy.

I made this pea concoction the other night for dinner and had to share it with you all. Please try it out and let me know what you think. One spoon of this is literally like having a garden in your mouth  ;) 

1 bag frozen peas - defrosted
1 bunch cilantro, thoroughly rinsed
1 bunch parsley, thoroughly rinsed
1 cup sunflower or pea sprouts (however any kind of sprout will do)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2-1 tsp pink Himalayan salt (add to your preference)
1/2-1 tsp ground black pepper (add to your preference)
1/2 tsp spicy paprika or cayenne pepper (optional)

1. Soak your herbs in vinegar and salt water for 10-30 minutes. This will help separate the bugs from the produce and get rid of any E.coli lingering on your greens.

2. Drain and rinse your herbs.

3. Toss everything into a blender or a food processor; in whatever order you like.

4. Blend. Add a few tablespoons of water if you need help blending your mixture.
5. Once smooth, serve with a salad or eat just as is. Enjoy!
