The reality of the Resurrection of the Savior overwhelms our heartbreak with hope because with it comes the assurance that all the other promises of the gospel are just as real—promises that are no less miraculous than the Resurrection.
(Paul V. Johnson
The love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the antidote for every negative aspect of our lives. Because of Him, we can overcome sadness, despair, anxiety, hatred – and someday, even death.

All over the world, people celebrate Easter in their own way, but the message is still the same. HE DIED THAT WE MIGHT LIVE!  MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

Test Kitchen – Rinds?

Jeff Yeager – noted author of ‘The Cheapskate Next Door’ stated that “A ‘rind’ is a terrible thing to waste.” So what is a Rind? It is the outer layer of  – in this case – a vegetable or a fruit. There are multiple uses for produce rinds, peels, skins, etc. and ways to extract benefits from them before they end up in the compost pile. Listed below are some of the ways.

  • JamImage result for pics of fruit and vegetable skins and rinds We all know that orange rinds are put into ‘Orange Marmalade’ jam.  Other fruits besides oranges can be made into ‘marmalade’, they include lemons, grapefruit, limes, tangerines and even kumquat ( Image result for pic of kumquat fruit  the little orange fruits that are about the size of a large grape). I have a kumquat tree. Love the fruit. You can eat the whole thing rind and all. The sweetness is in the rind.
  • Cornhusks: Another use most of you are familiar with…make sure the husks are from sweet corn and dampened, then wrap fish and other seafood in it. You can serve the fish in the husks.  Image result for images of corn husks
  • Easter Egg Dye: With Easter coming up, try boiling organic Easter eggs with onion skins to naturally create wild yellow and orange eggshells.
  • Olive Oil: Add citrus peels to olive oil for flavor and to reinvigorate oil that’s getting old.
  • Image result for pics of papaya skinsFoot rub: I like this one. Rub papaya skins and pulp on the bottoms of your feet to help soften and soothe the skin. The papaya skins are rich in Vitamin A and papain, which breaks down inactive proteins and removes dead skin cells. Papaya is such a versatile fruit. Many face creams and facial peels are made from this fruit. The fruit is great in a smoothie.
  • Shoeshine: If you want a ‘spit-shine’ on leather shoes, polish them with the slippery side of a banana peel.  Image result for free pics of fruit rinds
  • Houseplants: Banana peels may also be used to shine the leaves on houseplants to make them sparkle; this also serves as a natural pesticide and fertilizer.
  • I also use them by rubbing the inside of the peel on my legs and arms to soften and give nutrients to the skin.
  • Hair Dye: Image result for free images of potato peels I will have to try this one. Boil potato peels in water for about a half hour, strain and let cool. Rinse the hair with this water after shampooing. It will gradually darken grey hair without any synthetic chemicals.

Wow! There are so many little hints that are not costly. Many of you may be aware of stuffing fruit and veggie peels inside  a chicken or turkey before roasting to give it extra flavor. Many potpourri are made with all types of dried citrus rinds, apple peels, pomegranate skins and other fruit trimmings. You can boil lemon rinds in water on the top of the stove in order to freshen the air in the kitchen. Scoop out an avocado shell and use the shell as a biodegradable pot to start garden seedlings in. I like this one the best – use as pest control in your garden or yard. Sprinkle ground-up nutshells on the ground or crushed egg shells. Slugs and other pests can’t stand crawling across the rough texture.

MAKE A NOTE: As when working with any foods, thoroughly wash the rinds of produce or anything that is to be eaten even when it is organically grown.

Thank you Jeff Yeager – these are great tips for those folks who are not aware of them.  They are great recycling tips for Fruit and Veggie Scraps.




You can’t see them or feel them, although sometimes you can smell them.

Image result for free pics of toxins

WHAT ARE THEY? Toxins are dangerous substances in the environment that are absorbed by, and build up in, your body. They damage your immune system and are definitely linked to many health problems. Toxins include a number of things such as carbon dioxide, cigarette smoke, pesticides, heavy metals, air pollution, chemicals, electromagnetic radiation, formaldehyde, antifreeze, artificial preservatives, and much, much more.

Toxins are a toxic nightmare that endangers a person’s health and as well as your life. They damage the immune system and make you more susceptible to illnesses more than just the flu. The build up of toxins in the body can affect your blood pressure, memory, digestion, respiratory system, cholesterol, circulation, weight, heart, joints, energy, liver, kidneys to mention just a few things.

Does the build up of toxins just happen overnight? How do you know your affected by toxins? The build up is not just an overnight thing? You have been exposed to toxins from the day you were born (I might even say conceived). Toxins are all around us. They are on things you touch, in the air you breathe, the food you eat, the things you drink, etc.  Toxins, even in small amounts, can make you sick, and sometimes, even kill you.

So, how do you breathe them? We forget about our exposure to what we think is just normal, such as the pollutants in carpet, mold, mildew and dust mites; asbestos found in older buildings and homes which damage your healthy cells making them look like they’ve been riddles with bullets; spores from air conditioning units which can cause asthma and bronchitis; chemical vapors from aerosol cleaners, floor and furniture polish, bleach, ammonia, bathroom cleaners, insect sprays, hair sprays, perm solutions, hair dyes; fumes from chemically treated furnishings; human skin and cat dander.

I found these to be interesting facts, in my research, that – BENZYL ALCOHOL used in perfume, soaps and shampoos irritates the upper respiratory tract and causes headache, nausea, dizziness and a drop in blood pressure. LINALOOL – also found in perfume, hand lotions, nail polish remover, hairspray and laundry detergent can cause respiratory disturbances and central nervous system disorders. TERPINEOL – used in bleach, after-shave and roll-on deodorants can cause respiratory depression, headaches, and loss of muscular coördination. WOW! The list goes on and on to include other dangerous chemicals such as, acetone, benzaldehyde, benzyl acetate, ethanol, camphor, ethyl acetate, limonene, methylene chloride, and many other. If you can’t pronounce them, stay away from them.

Image result for free pics of toxic pesticidesThere has been a lot of talk about PESTICIDES in the news, because of the product called ROUND UP from the Monsanto Company. When I checked the labels of other pesticides, they contained the same chemicals as Round Up. It is mentioned only that they are dangerous, but what does exposure to them do to your body? Here is what they do to your body – they weaken and/or destroy your immune, endocrine, reproductive and nervous systems. They have been linked to breast cancer, allergies, arthritis, fatigue and headaches, aging and continued illness of all kinds. Did you know that because pesticides are oil soluble, they can be store in your fat cells, and can stick around in your body for a long time; that when released from your fat cells, there are always harmful results.

Image result for free pics of toxic metalsDangerous Metals, another threat to your health, are coming to the forefront in the news. The big one is MERCURY. According to Edward Arana, D.D.S. “Dental amalgam fillings can release mercury, tin, copper, silver and sometimes zinc into the body.” It has been said by the EPA that if you buried just one amalgam filling in your backyard, you would be guilty of polluting the soil. Hippocrates – known as the father of medicine, remarked on the toxicity of mercury over 2,000 years ago. Mercury has been used in industrial processes and medications for over 1,000 years. Mercury is responsible for the old saying, “mad as a hatter” because or it causing brain damage in people who worked with mercury compounds in the hat-making industry.

The modern-day ailments that ‘mercury’ is linked to, today, include: mood swings, abnormal heart rate, anxiety, constipation/diarrhea, cold hands and feet, sleep disturbances, lowered libido, headaches, fatigue allergies, short-term memory problems, difficulty walking and tremors.

So, how does it get into your system from your teeth? Because Mercury is soluble, it can be absorbed into the lungs, nasal passages, stomach, teeth roots, gum tissue, and through the roof of the mouth – which is inches away from the posterior pituitary gland, the MASTER GLAND, which is a regulator of the lower endocrine system and controls the reproductive hormones. It accumulates in all tissues, but specifically in the brain. It is stored in the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, and thus POISONS THE ACTIVITY OF BOTH.

Other metals that are dangerous to your health include nickel (used in cheaper types of jewelry made of stainless steel); lead – found in gasoline, lead-based paints, old toothpaste tubes and ceramic glazes. Lead exposure can cause learning disabilities, hair loss, nerve damage, and frequent colds, difficulty concentrating, depression, anxiety and numbness; aluminum – higher concentrations of aluminum in the blood have been found in the brain cells of Alzheimer’s patients; mercury, along with cadmium or arsenic can cause autism.

Again, the food you eat and drink – to include water have been found scientifically to be overrun with toxins (especially foods that have come into the United States from other countries). Water contaminants include fungicides, insecticides, fuel additives, solvents, degreaser’s, benzene, vinyl chloride, toluene, styrene, etc. These chemicals can cause liver and kidney damage, birth defects, cancer, and more. Other toxins, I may have overlooked or forgotten to mention include: chromium, barium, thallium and on, and on.

Look for and be aware of the following symptoms for toxin contamination:

  • fatigue, irritability, dizziness
  • behavior disorders, weakness, headaches
  • muscle cramps, loss of motor control
  • breathing problems, fainting spells,
  • constipation, mood swings,
  • learning disabilities, stiff neck
  • sensitivity to sounds, penetrating smells, cigarette smoke, dust, or cut grass
  • brain fog – difficulty in concentrating, decision-making, etc.
  • Central Nervous System depression and much, much, more.

I have given you a lot to think about. It is SCARY STUFF!

DETOX, DETOX, DETOX!  The whole purpose of my blogs. The IMMUNE SYSTEM is central to your health. The IMMUNE SYSTEM is involved with all other body systems, and ties them all together. It is the number one defender against toxic invaders. 

The process starts with defending your immune system by providing the ammunition needed to control the harmful substances that find their way into your body. As I have said before and say again it is mandatory that you change your life style and eating habits by:

Image result for free pics of toxins

  • Eating a diet balanced with a minimal to NO PROCESSED FOODS.
  • EAT NO MEATS – especially red meats
  • Eat minimum amounts of Chicken, Turkey, and/or FISH if you must have meat.
  • Drink plenty of purified or filtered water (half of your weight in ounces)
  • STAY AWAY FROM SMOKING, DRINKING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES, and/or CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES, SODA POP, and I now include many of the SPORTS DRINKS as they are highly caffeinated.
  • Use PRESCRIPTION  DRUGS AND PAIN MEDICATIONS only as needed until your body tells you that it doesn’t need them any more.
  • In Other Words – the BEST way to get the nutrients your body needs is with WHOLE NATURAL FOODS.

Anyone who has experienced ‘sciatica nerve’ pain, knows it hurts, hurts, hurts. It is debilitating pain. So, exactly what is ‘SCIATICA’?

Image result for free pics of sciatic nerve

My handy Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary says this – “sciatica pertains to the hips or ischium. The sciatica nerve is the largest nerve in the body, arising from the sacral plexus either side, passing from the pelvis through the greater sciatic foramen, down the back of the thigh, where it divides into tibial and peroneal nerves. Lesions cause paralysis of flexion and adduction of toes, abduction and adduction of toes, rotation inward and adduction of foot; plantar flexion and lowering of ball of foot; paralysis of dorsal flexion and adduction of foot; rotation of ball of foot outward and of raising external border of foot and of extension of toes; also anesthesia in cutaneous distribution.”

The usual terminology is ‘SCIATICA’ – simplified it is described as ‘severe pain in the leg along the course of the sciatic nerve felt at back of thigh running down the inside of the leg.’ Compression or trauma of the sciatic nerve or its roots, especially that resulting from ruptured intervertebral disk or osteoarthrosis of lumbosacral vertebrae. Inflammation of the sciatic nerve results from metabolic, toxic, or infectious disorders. The discomfort may begin abruptly or gradually and is characterized by a sharp shooting pain running down the back of the thigh. Movement of the limb generally intensifies the suffering. Pain may be uniformly distributed along the limb or infrequently in certain spots. Numbness and/or tingling may be felt; the nerve may be extremely sensitive to touch. Symptoms usually grow worse at night and on the approach of stormy weather. Duration of a sciatic attack varies from a few days to several months. In longstanding cases, muscles grow atrophied and/or rigid. Treatment should be started early in order to have an early recovery.

Image result for free pics of sciatic nerve

Treatments vary from surgical to plain old exercise. Surgical intervention takes place if there is damage due to a ruptured intervertebral disk. Exercise programs are important for any sciatic treatment plan. It includes stretching and strengthening parts of the body that may be causing irritation of the sciatic nerve. The underlying cause of sciatic nerve pain dictates the course of exercise applied, since you are dealing with the discs and the spine. Rest is important, to keep the body relaxed, which in turn allows it to heal. If it hurts while exercising, decrease the stress of the exercise or stop immediately. NOTE: it is important that you do not become completely bed bound due to the sciatic pain. Lying in bed for more than 2 days or prolonged periods of time has been shown to make the sciatica worse.

Other treatments include improving your general health by balancing your diet with good nourishing food. Drink more water. When you are dehydrated, parts of the spine become deflated causing more pressure on the sciatic nerve.  AVOID INFLAMMATORY FOODS – especially anything with a high sugar content. A great food, but not good for some folks is peanuts. Peanuts contain a lot of magnesium which is crucial for allowing muscles to relax.

Image result for free pic of supplementation for sciatica pain

For you who are allergic to peanuts choose other food with a high magnesium content, or take a magnesium supplement. Herbal supplements can include Tumeric (high quality), and I have found a good foot massage helps as well.

All of the above will keep you from using prescribed methods of pain killers to include Morphine and Demerol or any of the newest pain killers on the market that contribute to the opioid epidemic that is consuming our nation. The afore-mentioned treatments can be effective, but you should not just choose random treatments for your pain. It is important that you choose the right treatment for the underlying CAUSE OF YOUR SCIATICA,  in order for there to be a healing process and/or improvement. Last, but not least, BE PATIENT. Sciatica Nerve pain healing does not just happen overnight. The amount of time it takes depends on the cause of your pain and your committment to getting well.

SOUPS – Test Kitchen

Image result for free pics of soup

The soup recipes on this page were created in my Test Kitchen. I like to use a slow cooker, so most of them are cooked in my slow cooker.

KIMCHI SOUP              Image result for free pics of kimchi soup

1 Cup Kimchi (I make my own)
1 Can Brown Sugar & Bacon Baked Beans
1 Cup Fresh Diced Tomatoes (can use canned)
2 Polish or Kilbasa Sausage cooked and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1/2 can coconut milk
1/4 lb Butter
Put all the ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook for 2-3 hours. At the last 15 minutes add 1/4 cup fresh chopped Basil Leaves. I serve with rice, or when I have left over soup I add the rice to the soup. Can also add Raman or rice noodles. Mm good! Enjoy

CHILI – I don’t usually use processed foods, unless they are organic which these are. However, you can cook  your own black beans etc. from the dry beans, use freshly diced tomatoes, and fresh corn. I make my own chili powder, so you can use whatever you have that you like for seasoning. I also add Moringa powder or leaves, and/or fresh basil.

1 can black beansImage result for free pics of chili
1 can creamed corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chili beans
1 cup freshly grated carrots
1 small to medium red or white onion
1/2 cup fresh-cut up mushrooms (your choice)
1/2 to 1 lb ground turkey
1 Tbsp. Chili powder

With this recipe, you can add or subtract what you wish to. Make it your own. I never make it the same, as I use whatever I have in the refrigerator. This is a basic recipe to get you started. Serve with grated Asiago Cheese on top and crackers.

I love cold soups. The following recipe is one of my favorite.

CUCUMBER/AVOCADO – Chilled      Image result for free pics of cucumber soup

In a blender add the following ingredients:

2  Cucumbers – unpeeled, but washed
2  Small Avocados or 1 extra-large Avocado
1  Cup Vegetable or Chicken broth (I make my own)
2/3  Cup plain yogurt (I make my own)
2/3  Cup Coconut Milk
1-2 Tbsp. chopped onion
1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1  Tsp. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Blend all the ingredients together into a purée. To season you can add a pinch of Cayenne and/or freshly ground black pepper, and sea salt to taste.
Pulse or stir to distribute seasoning for a few seconds. Chill in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours and serve. I make mine ahead and chill overnight in the frig. Top with a sprig of Parsley. Great as a preface to the main course of the meal or as the meal with a freshly tossed salad. The original recipe for this soup is from the Prevention Magazine. I made a few changes to suit my palate.

PUMPKIN SOUP            Image result for free pics of soup

2  Cups  fresh pumpkin peeled and cubed
1  Small sweet onion
3-4 Chopped Carrots
3-4 Tbsp. Coconut oil
3/4  Cup Chicken or Vegetable broth
2  Tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (I make my own)

Cook all of the ingredients in a slow cooker for 4-6 hours. Pour into a blender and purée. Add 1  Cup All Natural Plain Yogurt ( of your choice, I make my own). Pulse to blend the yogurt with the soup. Serve each portion of the soup with a dollop of yogurt and a sprig of cilantro or parsley.

I had a fun time making these soups. As usual I never make the soup the same each time I make it. I am always adding or taking away an ingredient. In other words I am experimenting all the time. I suggest that you can do the same. You would be surprised at the wonderful different tastes you can create.

Aloe Vera

Image result for free pictures of aloe veraAloe Vera – one of my favorite herbs. I have grown Aloe Vera in my yard for as long as I have lived in Florida. According to the nursery folks, the sandy soil of Florida is great for growing this special healing plant. Of course you can also grow it in a pot in your house. But what do you really know about ALOE VERA? Let me introduce you!

10 Seeds Aloe striata Coral Aloe Plant    25 Seeds Aloe Riverae Air Purification Plant    Image result for free pictures of aloe vera    Image result for free pictures of aloe vera

There are various types of Aloe Vera Plants. Their varying synonyms include: Aloe lanzae, Aloe barbadensis, Aloe indica, Aloe Vera liliaceae, etc. No matter the variety, they all share the same basic traits.

The Aloe Vera plant is centuries old. It goes as far back as 6000 years B.C. and is even mentioned in the bible. It can be used internally and externally. Originally from North Africa, India, and the Caribbean, it as well can be grown in any other frost-free country or area. Here in the U.S it can be purchased in most Garden Centers. In actuality, there are more than 400 species. They can have short stems, long stems, and even be trees. They grow best in tropical climates. The leaves are thick, fleshy, green to grey green with white flecks or no flecks, tapering, pointed with spiny teeth along the edges. The roots are strong, light brown and fibrous. They can produce a flowering stem, with spikes of narrow, trumpet-shapes, yellow or orange flowers, and yes – they grow babies, offshoots for propagation.

Aloe Vera plants, domestically, started out as ornamental house plants. Because it is a succulent, it can survive in areas of low rainfall, watering itself as needed. It does not do well in snowy and cold climates areas. I have seen very few bugs in my aloe garden, and my research tells me it is a plant species that is resistant to most insect pests. When I share my babies, I just pull one out of the ground and tell whoever, to just dig a hole and stick it in, give it a little water and it will grow beautifully.

Though, scientifically, it is said that Aloe extracts show no evidence for effective cosmetic or medicinal purposes, the cosmetic and alternative medicine industries claim otherwise. I have to go along with the alternative medicine claims about aloe being soothing, moisturizing, and healing. I have used it right from the plant to heal burns and other skin issues and The healing was almost overnight. Usual time is 2-3 days. I also put the gel in the purified water that I drink . Commercially you may see it as an ingredient in yogurt and some desserts; as well, the cosmetic industry uses it in a variety of products.

Image result for free pictures of aloe veraThe only caution I have found is when you produce it yourself, the clear sap which covers the outer edges of the ‘gel part, called Aloin can be toxic, with side effects – abdominal cramps, and/or diarrhea – occurring when ingested, but not so much when applied topically. I have used it on me topically without any side effects. However, that was before I did this research. If you are going to extract the gel from the plant yourself, I suggest – for safety sake – that after you peel the outer part of the leaf away, that you immerse the gel part in water to rinse off the ALOIN.

During my research I found many You Tube demonstrations on how to extract the gel yourself. However, the one attached to this blog is the best one I found (in my opinion). It will be worth your while to watch.

WOW! What great information. Because of this I was brave enough to try this myself. Easy! The chiropractic doctor in the film put it in perspective for me. Additionally, for storage purposes, make your gel in small amounts. If you know you won’t be able to use it within a week or 2, then after you have blended it add a ? of Vitamin C powder, and the oil out of ? Vitamin E capsules. This will help it to keep in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.

Image result for free pictures of aloe vera Further research informed me that topical uses of Aloe Vera has not been associated with significant side effects. If you plan on taking Aloe Vera internally, I suggest you do so in small doses, mixed in water or juice, and be sure the ALOIN has been removed. If buying it bottled in the store, be sure to check the ingredient label and follow the usage directions. You will want to buy Aloe Vera Juice as 100% Organic.

For me Aloe Vera is a wonderful healthy, healing, herbal plant. It has many uses and many benefits. Supplement benefits include: vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C and E. Abundant in minerals, they include: calcium, iron,potassium, manganese, copper, selenium chromium and etc., amino acids, protein, plant sterol fatty acids. It is great for digestion, detoxing, oxygen support throughout the body, disinfectant – internally for infection, reduces inflammation, eases constipation, and is easy to get.

(Research sources include: Wikipedia, Mayo Clinic, The Complete Book of Herbs (Lesley Bremness), Daily Natural Remedies and many more.)

As I reiterate often, everyone is different. It is up to you to decide if you want to explore this subject. Remember, everything in moderation until you know how your body reacts. For me, I had no questions, as I have used it for many, many, years.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT – You can’t be healthy and overweight at the same time. Quit kidding yourself and rationalizing your obesity. Your body is constantly breaking itself down by what you eat and breathe, the drugs you take. the pain killers you put into your body, and the lifestyle you choose to live, and stress. Bad lifestyle habits destroy cellular structure of the body. By your late 60’s and up you have accumulated a lot of cellular damage. The cells have to be repaired in order to reverse the damage. Herbal and botanical supplementation will do just that…..but you must be committed.
