Growth Zone Three
Growth Zone Three foods are evening foods.
All foods that grow underground or live or swim in the sea are best eaten between 6:30 p.m-1:00 a.m.
That’s six-and-a-half hours — from the final half-hour of Kidney Time to the beginning of Liver Time.
Growth Zone Three foods evolved out of the FLOOR-SUBFLOOR level of the three habitat zones of the forest ecology …
As a very general rule (because LIGHT and GRAVITY aren’t the only games in town) …
1) Morning — anything above 4 feet
2) Midday — anything between 4 feet and 4 inches
3) Evening — anything below 4 inches
As an 80% rule …
1) Morning — 12:30 a.m. -12:00 noon
2) Midday — 11:30 a.m.-7:00 p.m.
3) Evening — 6:30 p.m.-1:00 a.m.
Yes, there’s an overlap.
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …
“At evening when the rays of the Sun are diminished, foods that grow underground are ideal. Nature did not intend us to consume large quantities of food at night, therefore selections and varieties are limited, but balanced, in their chemical relationship.”
Dr. John T. Richter & Vera M. Richter (Nature: The Healer, 1936, 1946, 1962 …
“In the evening you will want something to help repair your body while you are asleep. What type of food will do this? The roots that grow in darkness, under the ground, that see no sun, but are rich in earth salts because the edible portion grows in the soil itself.”
Fish and eggs are also Growth Zone Three foods.
There are three varieties of roots …
1) soil roots
2) air roots
3) water roots
Roots are natural sleep promoters.
Kathleen DesMaisons (Potatoes Not Prozac, 1998) wrote …
“Make sure you have a baked potato before you go to bed. It will help your serotonin function and will support the normalization of your sleep patterns.”
However, it will not “help your serotonin function,” but it will help your LSD function.
Your LSD function supports playfulness and accelerates learning.
According to Ray Peat …
“Serotonin research is relatively new, but it rivals estrogen research for the level of incompetence and apparent fraudulent intent that can be found in professional publications.”
Most underwater food, particularly seafood, is in Growth Zone Three.
Robert Ervin Coker (This Great and Wide Sea: An Introduction to Oceanography and Marine Biology, 1947, 1949, 1954) wrote …
“The relatively high solubility of carbon dioxide in sea water is of great biological significance. After all, the synthesis involving union of carbon dioxide and water in sunlight is the basis of all life. Terrestrial plants are surrounded by an atmosphere having only about three one-hundredths of one percent of the essential carbon dioxide and they must generally find their water through extensive root systems. Pure water can hold in solution a somewhat greater amount of carbon dioxide than is present in an equal volume of atmosphere. Sea water is not pure but alkaline, and the alkalinity enables it to hold in true solution and in loose combination something like one hundred times as much carbon dioxide as does an equal volume of ordinary atmosphere. Consequently, where sunlight is available, the minute marine plants have at hand a larger store of this necessity along with an unlimited supply of water that does not have to be ‘pulled up’ from a soil through roots and stems.”
