Center piece on the table . Irises from my yard that just bloomed.(below)
I’m thankful for everyone who came to tea the other day; hope they enjoyed the afternoon as much as I did. Here’s some of the treats I made. below- homemade graham crackers/crème cheese and sliced strawberries. here’s the recipe from smitten kitchen I love these graham crackers; easy to make especially when I mix the dough in the bread machine.
These little lemon tarts below have a peppermint leaf for the garnish. Crème cheese/condensed milk/ lemon juice and lemon zest.
I had another box of these little phylo cups (15 in pkg) and I filled them with heavy whipped cream plus a little sugar; topped with blueberries.
chart shows when these are in season These are the best tangelos/Minneola’s and I found them at Wal-Mart for 48 cents a piece. Dumb me, I only bought 2. If you notice on the chart when they are in season, it tells you February through April. Might as well eat them all winter!
They are a cross between a grapefruit and an orange which makes them so tangy. I was pleasantly surprised to find something very good at Wal-Mart when I found these!
I didn’t realize how much we need large doses Vit C until I read articles on the following website.
Where do you find it? I only know of one place, if you find another, let me in on it. http://http://www.vitamincfoundation.org/ This website has a lot of great articles about Vitamin C, so many that you can go back to the site and just keep on reading time after time. I bought the powder Vit. C (ascorbic acid) that they sell (comes from Europe, not China) and it gave me a lot of energy.
It’s a pretty good buy since 1/4 tsp. equals 500 mg. These articles on Vit c are very informative too as well as the U-tube videos that they lead you too from the website.
I take mine in grapefruit juice, just 1 ounce or 2 at a time . I didn’t know I like grapefruit juice so much before I started having it every day with the Vit c in it. It is better than orange juice ( to me anyway).
More about Vitamin C
This story of the New Zealand Man here’s the 17 minute 60 minutes story of Allen Smith cured by Vit C got my attention on the power of Vit C along with the Vit foundation.org website. That little packet the wife is putting in his glass of water (about 15 min. into video) is lypo spheric Vit C that goes into the cells. Here’s Allen Smith introducing Dr Levy in New Zealand at a Vit C conference.
Update- I’m not taking this stuff ever again! I’ve switched to Barley Green!
Warning- Don’t take this stuff. I wrote the below post about it before I realized how sick it can get you. this is dangerous. Take Barley green instead which is not as potent and will not get you sick.
Ever took this before? I ordered Dr. Mercola’s premium chlorella about 2 years ago- the tablet form in the photo. I threw up rather violently. How did I know 6 in one day was to many? A year later I tried some again- only two; threw up again, rather violently.
Now it is 2 1/2 years later and I’m trying it again, but I got smart. Don’t take it on an empty stomach! I put it in this:
Ok, Now we’re getting somewhere! In the Vita mix I put 4 or 5 ounces of Breyers mint choc chip ice-cream, milk and chlorella; about a 1/4 tsp. of the powder kind. Breyers all natural ice cream has sugar in it, not corn syrup, that’s why I eat this brand of ice cream.
There’s more to digest about Chlorella
take a look at this post and comments Looks like others are getting very sick on this too, and the blogger here even had it in a milkshake like I did. Is it an allergic reaction like they say, or is it your body throwing off poisons? Note the Dec. 16, 2010 comment about taking the allergy test with the chlorella by pricking your skin with a sterile needle and applying some chlorella on it to see if you get hives there. I haven’t done that yet.
I don’t go beyond a 1/4 tsp in my milkshake. Never will take more than that. I just don’t know why many are vomiting from it. Allergy? Bad batch? Toxins coming out faster that the liver can handle it? It’s an unsolved mystery in book, but I am taking it for now- cautiously.
It does so much good for you; is classified as a food, and it is staying down this time when I put it in a milkshake, so I’ll keep taking it.
Here’s a good book. It’s the miracle mineral solution of the 21st Century. I give MMS1 ( it’s chlorine dioxide when activated with the citric acid). to my cats in milk or cream and that saves a lot of money since it eliminates the need for worm pills. This book is written by a research engineer who was in the aerospace industry for about 25 years:Jim Humble. Here’s one of his websites Here’s the other one
Would you try something that was given to Malaria victims in Africa and it cured them of their malaria? There are some encouraging stories of people getting better because of this. You buy a 4 oz bottle of MMS1 and a 4 oz. bottle of citric acid. You put 1 drops (for starters) of each in a clean glass; wait 3 minutes, then drink it with some water or juice. Can’t be orange juice and can’t have added Vitamin C to it since that makes it non effective. I only started with 1/2 drop for the first day. I’ve not upchucked on it since I am careful not to go beyond any nausea I have.
MMS is not chlorine dioxide; Miracle Mineral Supplement – MMS is sodium chlorite (NaClO2) 28%. Combining with acid briefly produces chlorous acid (HClO2), which in sequential steps oxidizes ambient chlorite (ClO2-) to create chlorine dioxide (ClO2).
The author’s experience with stabilized oxygen led him to the understanding of chlorine dioxide which he explains on page 20. On page 195 he explains the oxidizing process of chlorine dioxide.
It is the oxidizing process of chlorine dioxide ions that works to kill pathogens and eliminate harmful chemicals … the process takes place throughout the body whenever chlorine dioxide ions contact pathogens. It does not attack beneficial bacteria or healthy body parts, as they have a resistance to oxidization….
When you feel nauseous, that means the toxics are coming out, just slice up an apple and eat some sections through out the day. It helps so much. That is found that on the website, and I know it to be true since I did the beet protocol last year and you were supposed to eat an apple before drinking the beet/asparagus juice so you would not throw up. Apples help absorb the toxins and get rid of them.
There was a poor mining village in the jungle of Africa that refused the “health drink” because they thought the Malaria was a judgment from God for their sinful living. ( Page 10 in the book). This is not that far fetched if you’ve been in churches here in America where sickness and death is thought to be chastisement from God for something you are not doing right. It’s old testament thinking, not the goodness of God that Paul writes about in the New Testament.
This is not chlorine. Although chlorine is also an oxidizer, it oxidizes in a different way; by chlorination. which means it combines with whatever it’s oxidizing to make new compounds, some that are cancerous. See the difference?
You can download the first 1/2 of this book free. where you can download the 1st half of book for free The 2n’d half can be downloaded, but you have to pay for it.
I put a drop in a pan of water to kill any pathogens on the lettuce. You can purify your water too with the mms1. I think it’s 4 drops to every gallon of water.
Want to know what it did for me?
Well, in a few days time I’ve felt some pings throughout my body- yeast, fungus and pathogens being killed. One place was my breast where the metal stitches are. I think I had infection in there, but now it feels much more normal and stronger.
my chronic bad ear feels better with no ear ache.
Felt weird sensations on my left eyelid/eye- something was being zapped there. Do you know we have sinuses behind our eyes?
felt it through my lymph nodes too. It’s a sensation of heat that you feel because it’s oxidizing the specific area.
My right ankle didn’t feel stiff anymore!
My throat: felt pathogens being zapped there, only on my left side of throat.
Felt about 5 seconds of zapping on my right side. Could have been my liver, or intestines… don’t know. All these things happened in the first 3 days of taking the doses, and they were small doses. I started at 1/2 drop,… up to 3 drops all the above took place. Now I’m at 5-8 drops a dose.
Update a few weeks later:
I mix a drop for every ounce in a spray bottle and spray it on the hen house roosts…. in the nesting boxes…. The cats still get it… I take a bath in it- 17 activated drops. I can’t take it orally anymore, makes me shudder- just the smell of it, although I will be taking maintenance doses the braver I get.
Beet Protocol explained I juice beets and asparagus in the morning and eat an apple afterwards. You have to eat the apple or else you will get nauseas from the beets getting the toxins out since they are one powerful vegetable. I did get a little nauseous the next morning even though I ate an apple. They say to eat 2 or 3 apples. Think I had 3/4 of one.
Day 6…I’m still juicing beets and asparagus every morning and we are having lower back aches, not too bad, but they are noticeable which indicates kidneys are detoxifying and sometimes it can bring on the kidney stones to be expelled. The solution is B6 vitamins, magnesium, and coral calcium although I haven’t bought any of those yet.
Hunger pains are gone After you drink the beet juice and eat the apple, your hunger pains are gone. It’s very satisfying and you know you’ve put something good into your body. I like washing the juicer utensils in the sink afterwards and seeing the bright red/pink water.
Chickens get the beet pulp! Makes me glad I’m making my hens healthier too. They’ve been eating it every day so far and not tiring of it. Their combs are a brighter red too since they’ve been having beet/asparagus pulp.
It is the apricot kernel oil (food grade) that made this salve even better than it is. It’s quite a moisturizer from the looks of my hands and face. B- 17 is what apricot kernel oil contains which destroys cancer cells. It is a staple in my homemade salve from now on.
Another benefit from apricot kernel oil is that you can use it in salad dressing if you get the food grade kind.
Using the Vita Mix to process salve
In my most recent batch of salve I seeped dried calendula flower heads in the oil and then put the mixture in the Vita Mix to mix thoroughly. I didn’t strain it but instead, added the beeswax. Wow, it is a beautiful orange colored salve that smells like the calendula flower which has a citrus orange smell to it. Should be used up within 3 months since there are no preservatives in it. I really like his batch.
Calendula flower heads are supposed to help prevent the infection of lacerated wounds from what I’ve read. Carotenoids (gives it it’s color), volatile oil and resins are what the flower heads consist of . You see it in salve ingredients often because it’s good for the skin as in helping diaper rash, cuts scrapes, fungus issues (ringworm, athletics foot) and sore nipples from breast feeding.
http://www.herbs2000.com/herbs/herbs_calendula.htm is where I found this info.
A dear lady sent this dear cup to me as she thought of me on the first chemo treatment I had recently. I thank God for ladies like Mrs F. that are old enough to be my mom who have a lot of wisdom which makes them so very dear and set apart from others because of their quality of discernment .
On the bottom of the cup it says: 14, “Dogwood”, Elizabethan, fine bone china, England. It’s special to be thought of and I hope I can be a support and blessing for others , some how, someway, the way many have been to me through this cancer time of my life.
The note she included was even more of an encouragement than the cup and saucer. Thank you Mrs F.
I ran out of ice cream so these smoothie/milkshakes are getting even better. Take a look at this one I’ve been making:
- 1/2 baggie of crushed ice (I use a hammer)
- about 8 ounces of milk or 3 ounces of plain yogurt
- 1 TBlsp of flax seed oil
- 2 or 3 tbsp of crushed flaxeed
- 2 vit C tablets (mine are 500 mg each)
- 2 juice plus fruit capsules emptied in blender
- 1 whole banana in chunks
- 1 cut up carrot
- 1/4 cup of bolthouse fruit smoothie drink (it’s in the produce section at Walmart) and any flavor will do; there are about 6 of them
Blend it all in the blender. The crushed flaxseed taste nutty. This is the best one I ever made. I’m putting walnuts in the next one.
Here’s our favorite current milkshake and it is healthy for us too. I found Barlean’s flaxseed oil recently which is supposed to fight cancer by strengthening the immune system with all the omega 3 it contains. http://www.barleans.com/ We take ours in milkshakes but it’s the ice in the milkshake that makes it so refreshing. The flax oil makes it healthy.
- 2 scoops chocolate ice cream
- a sandwich bag of crushed ice ( use ice cubes and pound them with a hammer)
- 10 ounces of milk or some plain yogurt (either one)
- 1 banana in chunks
- about 2 TBSp of flax seed oil
- Tbsp of crushed flax (it’s in the bread making aisle)
Mix it all in the blender and it’s so refreashing in this hot weather. Not too sweet either since you have all the ice and milk in there. I bought some whip cream spray to put on top to make it a “Starbucks” fralappee.
On a side note: I put some flaxseed oil in plain yogurt for my cat and she ate it!
