Immunity Boosting Elerberry Syrup

IMMUNITY

You can find or forage this tasty berry, and concoct a natural and reasonably priced syrup, proven to shorten the duration of a cold or virus.  The recipe is below, however, If you’re too sick to make a bottle, there are store-bought versions like Honey Gardens Elderberry Syrup, $22.44,  pictured above.  There are other products as well however, you should always go organic to avoid pesticides and herbicides.  The last thing you need when ill, is more toxins.

I made a double batch of this stuff last year and will be once again cooking this brew in my kitchen over the next week-end.  It’s good to just have it on hand because you or someone you know will soon wake up chilled and feverish. Medical research has shown that taking an elderberry-based tincture within the first 48 hours of a virus’ onset can shorten the duration of symptoms by as much as four days.  And you want to have this stuff at the ready because when you are feeling puny is not the time to be trying to make it, even though its pretty easy to cook a batch up!  The taste is yummy.  Last year, I had friends who weren’t sick trying to get a nip of it.  Keep a stockpile of this syrup on hand for whenever illness strikes. It tastes way better than the cherry-flavored stuff, it’s all natural, and in under an hour you can make a batch large enough to keep you and your family healthy all winter long. Or if you’re too sick to make a bottle, there are store-bought versions like Urban Moonshine’s Herbal Immune Zoom that are quite nice, too.

If you are ready to batch up your personal stockpile of this syrup, I would suggest going all organic with the ingredients.  I have included links for the elderberries too.

I use Frontier Organic Elderberries, in the 1lb size, pack of 2 so I had enough on hand for now and later.  Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) is abundant across North American, and its berries can be foraged from the wild across much of the United States.  I prefer to do my foraging on Amazon.

Elderberry Elixir Recipe – Makes 1 quart  (I prefer to double my recipe up and give out some to friends and family)  On this note, I still used only 1 cup of Vodka for a double batch and yes it still had a lot of kick to it! So adjust at will here.  I chose vodka for a clean taste but brandy could also be nice.

1 cups dry or fresh elderberries

2 cups water

2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

1 cup 40 percent alcohol

1 cup raw local honey

1 quart size canning jar

Small bottles for dispensing

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the water, elderberries, ginger. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then simmer for 20 minutes. Press and strain elderberry-ginger mixture into a quart-size canning jar. Stir in 1 cup honey and 1 cup alcohol to preserve the mixture. Shake well to mix. Divide into smaller containers, if you like. The elderberry elixir will keep in the refrigerator for 6 months.
  2. At the first signs of a cold or flu, take 2 tablespoons of elderberry every hour for up to 5 days.

Following Through

A friend of mine is a Project Manager.  Her husband is far less organised. Things have sat in boxes, in the way of traffic and in the way of beautifying her home, for decades. There have been numerous promises to follow through.  When we fail to follow through, we disrespect both ourselves and the person we made the goal with.  When everything boils down, time is the ultimate gift we give both ourselves and those we love.  We spend our time and our money on who and what we love.

Life moves swiftly onward and as most of us are used to creating busy work in our days and planning ahead, it can be easy to lose the moment.  It can also be all too easy to fill ourselves up so much with stuff, with the dust of the day, that we have no time to breath or change direction, or see a friend.

Creating To Do lists are one of my favourite things to do!  Firstly, it solidifies plans.  You can delight and feel great about checking things off as done.  it keeps you on track, from writing a letter to a friend, to having lunch to joining a meeting, it’s all there.  But another cool thing about lists is that they reach another area of the brain and help make it so.  I created a to-do list for a lovely needy historic home and then that list got filed away.  A decade later, I came upon it once more and delighted in the fact that every single item on that list, from redoing the hardwoods to remodelling the bathroom, to landscape lighting got taken care of.

Following through is the ultimate act of love.  When you can trust your own words, that means a whole lot because you can then trust yourself.  Giving yourself weight, respect and significance of meaning what you say and saying what you mean is the very essence of love and self-respect.

Call it branding. In fact, there is a great article “Brand You” that I read a long time ago on this very topic.  As we go about living life, we are actually creating our brand.  Who and what do you stand for?  When people think of you, what would be the very first things to come to mind?  Honouring yourself begins with following through on commitments, both to yourself and to others.  This can also include following through in abusive situations, with managing your personal boundaries. We teach people daily how we wish to be treated by how and what we allow into our lives and by the boundaries we set with them.  We are empowered to gently but firmly maintain those boundaries from anyone who disrespects them and us.  If you find yourself in a situation where you have failed to follow through on your best life then know that you are empowered to change this now.

With 2017 looming large, get pen and pad out and start planning your follow through today.

Best Organic Body Scrubs

choc-scrubimg_2547

Scrubbing the body helps you detox through the largest organ of the body; your skin.  You take in vitamin D from the sun and absorb what you put on your skin.  When you sweat, you eschew toxins and cleans the body.  Dry brushing is terrific before the bath to prep the skin (as well as hit hard to reach spots on the back for example).  I did some serious sun damage so I have been doing peels and scrubs for 20 years now.  Because organic and natural safe non toxic products are a big biological impact, you will only see things of that nature here.

Firstly, as I note in my about me page, I am a Plant-Based Lifestyle Consultant.  Dovetailing with that, I rep for Miessence, an all organic skin, home and body care line.  The link is below and I am available for any suggestions or questions you have.  There are great scrubs available in the

DRY BRUSHING – Helps flush the skin, bring new blood to the surface and is perfect right before a nice detoxing soak.  This brush, the Bemodst Dry Skin Body Brush,  is the same that I use at home, with natural wood and bristles that feel nice and tingly on the skin. It comes with a handle to reach the back and is a terrific price.

After your dry brushing, you are ready for the next step, scrubbing on damp skin.

There is a great scrub available in the miessence product line and the stuff ships super fast!  But I also use Giovanni and other organic products too so I want to share those with you here so you can make decisions about what floats your boat. https://www.miessence.com/puretemple/en/category/1/skincare
Darling Salt Glow is an eco-conscious body scrub made from environment-saving salt sourced from the troubled Murray-Darling Basin in Australia.  Before you say you don’t care, remember, we are all one, all connected.  🙂  Blended with deeply moisturizing coconut oil, clove and citrus, it’s especially perfect for fall and winter time when you want to feel a bit more nurtured and toasty.  You can get the Darling Salt Glow in a nice 3 pack for $124.00, but there are also discounts applied (and free shipping) based upon your spend level.  You can see that prior to solidifying your check out and make any changes. The line has very good tinted moisturizers with SPF and mascara as well as other stuff I use daily but that is another topic.

First up from Amazon (I adore Amazon, you can buy almost anything) is First Botany Arabica Coffee Scrub which not only has that cup o joe wake me up delightfully aroma, but has been voted ‘Best Acne, Anti Cellulite and Stretch Mark treatment, Spider Vein Therapy for Varicose Veins & Eczema’ and I have no argument for all that.

If you are more of a cacao person, next up is the ever delightful Giovanni Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub, which is divine.  Slightly warming and the aroma is intoxicating for those of us who crave dark chocolate.  You can click on the coloured ink to get shopping. I selected the 5 pack but you could buy just one.  The 5 pack is a great price and trust, you will use this stuff up fast…because it is that great.  While I type this, I actually have it on my desk huffing it.  Maybe I have a problem.  No, this stuff just rocks.

Next, also from Giovanni,  is the Giovanni Cool Mint Lemonade which is a salt scrub that is equally intoxicating.  It is aromatherapy with the scent filling the shower.  I live in Dallas, and it gets bloody hot but mainly hot and humid here.  I use this in bulk in the summers. So in other words, all year round.   It’s perfect after gardening, getting stuck in traffic, whenever you need a serious chill.  In fact, this stuff is so chilling, I have even had to add hot water into my tub.  Impressively cooling.    I have this product on autoship.

Greenscape Salt Scrub (In any of their scents) gets high marks for both scent and a larger (19.4 oz) size.  The link above gets you Rose and this one here is Greenscape Lavender.

Lastly is the Abra Grapefruit and Juniper scrub.  Juniper is known for its’ purifying properties, except apparently when made into gin, which is tasty but not healthy so be careful.  But in the scrub, my friend, you are safe to imbibe.  Who doesn’t love the fresh scent of Juniper berries?  (We use the berries in stews and sauces, by the way.)

So with the holidays coming, and with most of us planning to imbibe a wee bit, this is the perfect time to stock up on scrubs to get you glowing!

 

 

Beginning Transformational Habits

suzanne-wonderingimg_1574

Whenever you decide to make changes in your life, particularly big ones, you are going to face some opposition, both inside yourself as well as some conflict around you, even from well-meaning friends and loved ones.  The thing to understand is that most of what we do every day, is done out of habit, out of the existing neuronets our brain has created as a way to simplify our day to day.  When you change those habits, whether it is quitting smoking, walking daily, or drinking less coffee or wine, your brain is really there for you, but the hurdle is going to be the 21 days you must suffer through as your brain remaps itself to your new way of thinking and being.  Whenever you are doing something good and wholesome for yourself, you are on the right track because that goodness comes from a place of respect for who you are inside.  You are showing that you respect and value you. You cannot truly value and respect anybody else until you begin with you.  Start your journey and be transformed.

Dreams – Try Hard Not To Get Them Squished

meandrhett

Dreams get squished in the most amazing ways if we are not careful.  In school, I was a gymnast and ran track.  I ran faster than anybody in my school in any grade.  Every year I won the Presidents Physical Fitness award and in my 20’s I ran 5 or so miles daily at the nice UTD track in Richardson. After repeated comments on the track about my ‘great pace’ I was clocked doing 4 minute miles.  I did not realize until in my 50’s, in sharing memories with  a friend who absolutely refused to believe my 4 minute mile story, stating that it just was not possible, that it was actually something perhaps rare and special.

My family never made any big deal out of my physical abilities.  Instead, my mother took me along with her to fat spas to help me lose weight that I didn’t have to lose at the time.  Where is she now when I need this?   In grade school a teacher talked to my adopted mother about putting me in a special music program because of my voice.  Mother asked me to sing for her and when I did, she smiled and explained that while my song was pretty, there would always be someone better.   No matter how I did in anything, there was always someone better. Thusly, I have spent my life downplaying how good I might be at my job or anything else and always questioning my validity.  I learned after meeting my birth family, several years ago, that music runs in the blood,  as does athleticism, with most of the men being fire chiefs and my aunt being a professional singer.  Try hard not to get your dreams squished. Even if you never find out why, trust that they are there for reasons that you need to pursue.

Discord When Seeking Peace

Recently, on nextdoor.com, in trying, for free mind you, to assist my lovely neighbors by providing some groovy health tips, I was hit with such negativity and actual slander from strangers, that it astounded me.

The primary abuse came from an alleged personal trainer.  I say alleged as one would assume a personal trainer worth the salt in his sweat would require a modicum of training, certainly enough to have grasped at least 85% of what I was saying, such as how sugar and sodas and too much protein can put your body into glycation and age you.

It did not matter where I studied, I was crap because my ‘product’ that I was selling was my body of knowledge.  And I wasn’t selling anything at all, I was providing what I felt to be useful or interesting information for free, stuff that I had either just learned or had reconfirmed for me in a recent seminar and I was excited to share it out.

Where did all that anger, miss-direction and fear of what they didn’t know come from?  Kind words were twisted and people who didn’t bother to visit my link and read about my experience slammed me.  I had no training, I was not accredited, I was stupid, white trash and practising witch-craft, oh and the product I am selling is crap.

I have deactivated my Nextdoor.com account, but the reason I bring the story up is that sometimes, we live in discord when peace will give us extended (and a far better quality) life.  And, as we see here in the situation noted above, even when we are actively embracing living in peace, things happen that catch us unawares.

Sometimes we are bursting with energy and a great thought, truth or topic we wish to share and it hurts a lot when our spirit of joy is squashed down.  It can be quite shocking how badly a great message can end up received and many times through no fault of your own, with the words chosen with care, a smile in your heart and a twinkle in your eye.

When I provide great knowledge that helps someone gain peace in their lives, a client, for example, that tastes their first green juice and hires me to help them set up their kitchen for a plant-based diet, seeing their radiance and peace gives me a boost right back.

I am building a business as a plant-based Lifestyle Consultant. So while I would still provide free information, it does mean that in an attempt to spread the word faster, I am on various pages and in various circles, trying to build my practice.

Sometimes we step out in faith, in love and give.  And sometimes, rather than feeling that love right back, we reach out in love to others and it backfricken fires.  But it’s all good.  You are still a value add and somebody still admires and loves you, just not those people.

Watch for affirmations!  I do not believe in accidents.  I don’t know all the whys and what nots, but I do take things to be clues as to which way, for my future, should I now move?  Hit with such insult and anger, I was dejected, hurt and re-thinking my reasons for being a lifestyle consultant.  Maybe I should just rescue animals instead of people, animals are far more emotionally intelligent and  grateful.  So I walked my dog and this neighbor who was not on Nextdoor, who didn’t read my post and didn’t know I was a plant based lifestyle consultant, came out of her house and began discussing the very things I had just posted the other day!  Then she handed me the article from the Wall Street Journal about it!  Coincidence?  I don’t believe in such!

Perhaps I’ll stay at this work a little while longer.

By the way, if you are seeking peace, yoga & meditation cannot be beat.  I highly recommend this book.  I read alot of books and pass them forward.  This is one I hold on to and refer to often.  Baron Baptiste trained my original yoga trainer and I love his style.  Baron’s book, 40 Days To Personal Revolution, is filled with great information.

Namaste

Easy Sprout Reviewed Along With iPlant & Appetiser Tray Modalities

The Easy Sprout sprouter is a great and simple way to grow sprouts.  Now that I have finally bought and used it, I am so glad I did.  My favourite sprout for this sprouter is mung beans.  But of course, this product is versatile and you can grow a variety in it.

Before the Hippocrates Life Transformation training, I knew I wanted to reduce meat, to go back to a mostly vegetarian diet and, to be honest, mostly vegan.  I wanted this to spare the animal abuses inherent in the dairy and meat industry.    What I did not anticipate was that sprouts would be (or should be) half of every meal!  My mouth flew open, literally, when they termed organic produce, such as cucumbers, or salad, ‘condiments’.

 Thinking about it all, it makes sense.  We humans have so corrupted and depleted our soils, our air and water, that the organic produce we raise now, has far less nutrition in it than it once did.  IF you compost, do compost tea and grow your own veggies, that is the very best, but it is still hard to stay completely away from the grocery store.  There are seasons and space requirements for growing.  I live in a big city and July and August are too hot for many things to grow well.

Sprouts can be grown year round on your kitchen counter!  And they are delicious!  I do a variety and recently branched out to growing mung beans.  I have (and adore) the 2 Deck iPlant sprouter.  You c an also get just one level of growing with the 1 deck iPlant.   Both take up the same kitchen real-estate so I favour the option to grow more and more variety too. IF you opt for the iPlant, you will want to add on extra sprout trays, so that you can keep the growing cycle moving along.
Another self-managing sprouter is the Tribest Freshlife 3000, which is stackable up to 3 levels!  For mung beans, which like pressure when growing, I use the Easy Sprout.  Once the mungs have sprouted, I fill up the 2nd cup this sprouter comes with and set that on top of the mungs for the pressure they love.  It makes them nice and crispy crunchy!  IF you are new to mung beans, warning! They expand!  When I first sprouted them, I used 2 cups of those bad boys and ended up with a kitchen invasion.  There were so many sprouts!  I was putting them in my green juices, in stir fries, on salads, in the dogs food, giving them away…the easy sprouter does far more than mungs, it’s equally great for garbanzos or pretty much any sprout you want to try but essentially for the smaller sprouts,  such things as broccoli, radish, onion and garlic sprouts, I use the iPlant.

For sunflower sprouts and pea shoots,  as well as wheat and barley grasses, I use an 8 sectioned catering appetizer tray, which has a section for ice that is perfect for adding water and the Sea-90 liquid fertilizer into, in order to grow hydroponically.   The fertilizer is used on the sunflowers, the pea shoots and the wheat grass as each of them grows longer roots and takes longer to mature enough to eat.  I did not want to deal with soil when growing those sprouts so I mix in the minerals they need (and that feed me) into the water. Hydroponics is easy to travel with because lugging soil around would be quite a chore.

Sprouting with earth!  Another great and simple method for at home use, is sprouting using traditional organic soil in trays, which is also perfect for growing micro greens too. For this I use this plant growing kit of trays with plastic domes.  My sunflower sprouts grew big and strong!  Then it was easy to take a pair of scissors and snip them down at harvest (about 12 days).  , which love a bit of pressure as they grow, so

Sunflower and Mung beans love a bit of pressure as they grow, so I keep lids on my sunflowers until they push them off and grow too tall for it.  On the mungs, I fill the Easy Sprout container with water and set it on top of the mungs, once they have sprouted, until they begin to push the container off.  This makes them strong and crunchy!

Depending upon how serious you are with your sprouts, my recommendation is to begin with the easy sprout if you are just starting out and then migrate to the iPlant.  I have the double decker one (see my earlier post reviewing it!) and I have sprouts literally going at all times, at various stages, between the easy sprouter, the iPlant and the trays.  My goal is to have 50% of all meals be sprouts or consume 2-4 cups daily.  This means a lot of sprouting!

What people don’t tell you is that the body gets less hungry when it is fed proper nutrition and that sprouts have more protein, vitamins and minerals than the SAD (Standard American Diet) many of us were brought up on.  The benefit here is shedding excess weight, vibrant health and skin, daily miracles, my friends!

Sprout on!

Eating When You Aren’t Hungry or ‘Empty Stomach Syndrome’ & Body Effects From Over Consumption

http://astore.amazon.com/puretemplehol-20

TV ads make us want to eat all of the time.  The system is really out to get us.  But it is important to understand that the ‘Full’ feeling actually means we have overshot and dined on too much at once. We should, instead, be looking to feel pleasantly satisfied.

But another culprit to our culture here in America, is eating too often.  The body has a process it goes through in order to render the food (fuel) we take in, into usable energy.

But my tummy feels empty!  An empty stomach only signals you that the first stage of digestion has been completed.  Whenever you eat, a significant portion of the body’s energy, switches over from whatever it was working on, to now digesting your meal.

Your body goes through 3 stages: Digestion, assimilation, and Elimination.  Although some assimilation and elimination might have happened by the time your belly feels empty, a large portion of the processes behind that meal, have not yet occurred.

Per Hippocrates Health Institute, when you eat a new meal when your body has not yet fully processed the prior one, you unduly stress and compromise your body because it has not yet finished its task on the last meal and you have just added another job that requires immediate commencement.

Your body must now deal with both meals which cause the processes for both to be incomplete.  Eating too soon creates added waste and stress and decomposed food the body never had the time to complete, creating a favorable environment for bacteria, viruses, parasites, unhealthy cells, etc.

It is important to remain mindful of true hunger pains, of when your body is really calling out for fuel.  In this way, you honor the cycles of your body and encourage the very best health.

Lip Balm – Are ingredients Important?

These are the products I endorse and sell.  Click on the link above to take you to the site to order from.
From our lip balm to our hand lotion, from what we apply in our yard or spray on topically to control bugs, to what we eat, it is important to be mindful, go organic. There are tens of thousands of chemicals that have never been studied for their effect on human health or our planet and this list is growing rapidly. Every day we get
polluted, and that’s before we pour the next martini. It is important that we consciously clean our bodies out on a daily basis.
• Even though you may put the best nutrition in your body it can’t function as it was designed to function, unless you’re also removing toxins from your body.
• To underscore with urgency, consider the fact that young people and even children are now getting diseases like Crohn’s, colitis, diabetes and cancer sooner than ever before in history.
Our bodies were never ever meant for the onslaught of toxins we load them up on today. I remember when rain actually cleaned the car! Now we have this acid crap. I marvel at us, as a species, actively in the high pursuit of killing ourselves off for money. How does this make us better than the other animals? Smarter? HA! But seriously, we all can make small changes in what we vote for with our dollars. By buying and using organic skincare, body care, food, by limiting meat and dairy, which are both sick and cruel industries, we gain our health back too.

Super Angel & Omega Juicer & The Difference Between Juicing & Blending

SuperAngelIMG_2375

Pictured above is my Super Angel Deluxe.  I had a Breville prior which is going into the garage sale this Friday and I want to explain the reasons why and the differences in the juicer methodology as well as the difference between juicing and blending.

What you want is to get as much of the mineral and vitamin content  (and live enzymes) out of your food so that you fully feed the needs of your body.  I find it interesting how things always get back to nature or closely imitating it as we find what actually works the best.

We will review Centrifugal, Masticating and Triturating juicers here.  The machine pictured above (green ink to link you to view more details and purchase) is the only solid stainless steel triturating machine on the market today for the home kitchen.  Triturating (twin gears) run slower (82 RPM) which allows for the best retention of enzymes and nutrients.  As you go faster, you lose content quality.  This is what I have in my kitchen and I chose this link (green ink) as this is the best price which also includes the Juice Bible book too.

Masticating machines, Omega 8005/8006 series, the Champion brand juicers – have a single gear to crush and ‘chew’ the leafy greens & veggies.  The Omega, and you have to give props for any machine that comes in Purple or Acid Green, is a great machine overall.  My concern is that it has plastic parts.  But for $300.00, free shipping and a 15 year warranty, and did I mention colours?  What a deal!  What a flying scream of a deal, really.  The Champion I have the same plastics issue with.  But it comes in a few colours and a 10 year limited warranty.  For $295.00 it is a great buy.

Centrifugal machines, like the Breville Juice Fountain series, spin the food at high revolutions. They are a lot faster and you may end up, at best, with 70% of your vitamins & minerals and the juice tastes great.  I bought the Breville before I gained further knowledge.  So this is knowledge I would like to pass on to you.  The issue with the speed is that it causes your produce to oxidise rapidly.  If you are just trying things out and don’t want to invest alot right now, this machine will set you back $147.94 and free shipping. To my mind, if you are going to spend more on the Breville’s higher end versions, which are higher speed, then you are far better off buying a masticating machine so that you retain more of your enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

To my mind, if you are going to spend more on the Breville’s higher end versions, which are even higher speed, meaning higher oxidisation, then you are far better off buying a masticating machine so that you retain more of your enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

I tend to be a ‘one and done’ person.  I like things of quality, things of beauty and function where I can sit back and enjoy them for many decades to come and perhaps never repeat purchase again.  While the Breville is a solidly built machine, I bought the Breville before I gained further knowledge.  So this post is about sharing knowledge with you.

The Super Angel twin gear juicer, $1658.00 is a substantial chunk of change.  But there are no breakable parts!  Zero Plastic!  It has a 10-year warranty on the motor, 5-year wear and tear.  This machine has zero colour, it is all about the business.  But I love the easy clean up ad seriousness of the machine, it is very well designed and gosh, it ought to be!  A big bonus is this machine extracts 20-30% more juice too!  The entire thing is quality all .304 stainless steel construction and anti-bacterial.  The slow speed ensures low shock and minimal oxidation.  This is something I can will to somebody like the old Kirby vacuums.  The Super Angel performs masterfully juicing wheatgrass, sprouts, herbs, leafy greens, vegetable and fruits.  You can order the optional/additional Grinding (screen) Housing for making nut butters, baby food, frozen sorbets, etc.

Having had a few juicers in my time, I can share with you that Angel makes great juice, exemplary taste, texture and vitamin, mineral and enzyme retention and you’ll end up with approximately 95% of your food.   It is designed for easy of operation, efficiency, reliability and longevity. The Super Angel performs masterfully juicing wheatgrass, sprouts, herbs, leafy greens, vegetable and fruits.

The Angel is designed for easy of operation, efficiency, reliability and longevity. The Super Angel performs masterfully juicing wheatgrass, sprouts, herbs, leafy greens, vegetable and fruits.

And so when I began my journey, I was very curious what the difference was, between juicing and blending.  Wouldn’t blending be healthier as it is more of the produce etc.  A blender whirls the whole fruit together.  As a blender is high-speed, you will encounter nutritional loss.  With a juicer, you are removing the pulp, so your body doesn’t have to work as hard to digest it.  This makes it great in the morning as a detox agent, and to get minerals and vitamins and enzymes into your system fast because your body doesn’t have to work to process it.

My favourite green juice right now is 1 cucumber, half a ‘head’ of celery, a cup of whatever sprouts I have on hand, (mung or sunflower or pea sprouts) a bunch of fresh wheat grass, turmeric root or ginger root and half a bunch of cilantro.

Whatever machine you choose for your kitchen, I wish you happy juicing, here’s to your health!
