Baking Spelt Bread–A Form of Meditation

June 30, 2010

It’s a hit! I can make bread! I learned a recipe from my dear friend Mary Ann O’Brien for a tasty, hearty yeast-free, spelt bread that is sure to be loved without sending your glycemic index up. Very easy, too! Can be egg-free for those who do not eat eggs.

Spelt Bread
2 cups of spelt flour (found in many supermarkets these days)
1/3 cup water, approx
1 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 cup of muesli or nuts/raisins/seeds–whatever suits your fancy
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1 egg OR 2 Tbsp olive oil.
Put all ingredients into bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Dough should be somewhat wet and should be sticking together. If not, add one more Tbsp of water.
spread dough evenly into a baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes in a 150C oven. Serve warm.
Tastes great with avocado and a slice of tomato and sprinkle of sea salt! Experiment with different seeds, nuts, dried fruits. You can add more than 3/4 of a cup for extra chunky bread.
TIP: Use a non-stick cooking liner in the bread pan for easy bread removal!

This is a simple recipe, but I find when I do it, I just feel so good. I think about how healthy and tasty it will be, how Andy will enjoy it, I’ll enjoy it, my guests will enjoy it. It’s like a little meditation for my soul. Enjoy in good health!

Feeling groovy!

I am feeling GREAT! Wow. It’s so great to have ENERGY! My brain is clear. I lost 5 pounds! A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend an alkalinity retreat with Dr Robert O Young in Egypt. As we cruised along the Nile, Dr Young taught us the principles of leading a healthy, vibrant life. The COWS diet he declared! Huh?
C = Chlorophyll/Clay i.e., lots of greens, and don’t just eat yoru greens, green powder, Drink your greens. chew them until they are basically juice.
O = Oxygen and Oil–100 mil per oil/day, avocado, coconut oil, hemp, flax, olive oil, NO cooking of oils!
W = Water = pure alkaline ionized structured water
S = Salt and Sunshine and Sweat: pHour Salts, Seas, Real Salts, strengthen bones and muscles, Exercise.
WOW!! We had a week of his coaching and now it’s time for me to go go go!
I’ll let you know how it goes along the way! In the meantime, check out Dr Young’s website

Another reason not to drink soda/bubbly drinks

April 30, 2010

We all know that sodas are full of sugar, or worse, diet sodas have chemical sugar substitutes like aspartame (whcih is proven to cause cancer and is banned in Europe). But what about the bubbly water? Unfortunately all carbonated drinks are filled with carbon dioxide. Our bodies are constantly trying to get rid of this. So, why do you want to put it into your body?

No more cancer–no chemotherapy, no radiation

March 22, 2010

My ears perked up last year when I heard about a old friend who had cured herself of cancer. That’s right. Larelle cured herself. She did a few rounds of chemo and said STOP, NO WAY, my body hates this. She was in Stage 4 of cancer, according to her oncologists. Something inside her came out so strongly and told her she could be cured but not in the hospital oncology ward. Larelle checked herself out of the hospital and went on a quest. She ended up in San Diego at Dr Young’s ranch. He gave her green juices, colonics, infrared sauna therapy and IV drips with magnesium, potassium, sodium chloride. He was helping her body alkalize. In an alkaline environment, disease cannot survive. Most importantly, Larelle believed that she could survive and even Thrive! After three weeks at the ranch, she went home and followed the same diet and treatments for a few weeks. Again she went back to the ranch for three more weeks. She got better and better. Today she is FINE! Cancer free. She beleived she could do it, she gave her body the right “juice”, detoxed, and let her body take care of the rest. She’s living proof that there is a cure to cancer. www.phmiracleliving.com

Simple way to start a wave of good health

March 11, 2010

My quest for health has taken me around the globe–cleanses in Fiji, California. Seminars in NYC and NJ. I’ve listened to Tony Robbins, David “Avocado” Wolf, Joseph McClendon, Dr. Young, Dr. Mercola, German New Medicine, just to name a few. I’ve read books like pH Miracle, Fit for Life, Unleash the Power within, and lots and lots of others. I’ve come to the conclusion, that health begins and ends in your head and heart. You have to believe that you are healthy and that you can heal yourself before you actually can. If you think poisonous thoughts, your body is poisoned and cannot heal as well as it should. We’ve seen evidence over and over again of this. Stress is poison. And, the opposite, people who literally laughed their way out of diseases like cancer. So take a minute to think about what you can do right now to put yourself in a healthier place. What is it? SMILE. A simple smile elevates your mood and gives you a better place to make decisions from, take action from, and just to enjoy your day more. Give a smile to a friend and you can start a wave of health around the planet!
