HEALTHY SNACKS AND WHY
4 cups pecan halves
2 tsp sea salt
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup maple syrup
Cover pecans with water and soak overnight. Bake the next day at 150 degrees F until crisp. This could take 12 or more hours.
Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they are stiff. Slowly add vanilla and maple syrup. Fold in pecans until well-coated. Spread in a single layer onto two buttered baking pans. Place in the oven at 150 degrees F for several hours until the egg white hardens. Store in an airtight container and enjoy as a great Christmas snack.
NUTRIENT DENSE MEAL
Leg of Lamb: (serves 6)
1 small leg of lamb
3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp mustard
1 onion, peeled and sliced
5 cloves of garlic, peeled
several sprigs fresh thyme and rosemary
½ cup dry white wine
3-4 cups beef stock
Melt butter and mix with mustard. Brush mixture onto the lamb. Place all ingredients in a stainless steel roasting pan, fat side up and spices on top. Insert a meat thermometer. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F, then reduce heat immediately to 350 degrees F. Cook until the meter reads rare or medium rare—about 15 minutes per pound.
A half hour before the roast finishes, place the potatoes around the roast on the rack. Remove the roast from the rack and keep on a platter in the warm oven. Cut potatoes in half and place them cut side down into the drippings. Bake another 15 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Transfer them to the heated platter. Pour wine and stock into the pan bring to a rapid boil, stirring constantly until thickened. Season to taste.
We can cure pain and prevent disease, naturally, at no cost? Yes we can! And can it be so simple?
If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, make drinking enough natural water a habit in your life. It won’t take long for you to feel the benefit. Dr. Batmanghelidj’s pioneering work shows that unintentional chronic dehydration (UCD) contributes to and even produces pain and many degenerative diseases that can be prevented and treated by increasing water intake on a regular basis. Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transports nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water. Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink. Our bodies show in different ways that we are thirsty—that we are suffering from local or regional drought. This information has been scientifically peer-reviewed and presented at different national and international medical conferences.
Histamine is a brain chemical. It is in charge of water intake and drought management in the body and produces pain when an area in the body is suffering from pain. The drug industry is determined to block this messenger with strong pain medications which are most often antihistamines. Drug companies are interested in selling their product. Dr. Batmanghelidj has seen water completely reverse conditions such as asthma, angina, hypertension, migraine headaches, arthritis pain, back pain, colitis pain, chronic constipation, heartburn, hiatal hernia, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, high cholesterol, morning sickness, overweight problems, ad even heart problems needing bypass surgery. Allof these disease conditions responded simply and permanently to water. Ordinary water.
Alcohol, coffee, tea, and caffeine-containing beverages don’t count as water.
The best times to drink water are not at mealtimes. Remember, the body is not a container that can be replenished when empty. When dehydration has become symptom-producing, the reversal of its complications take time and understanding. Read more. Dr. Batmanghelidj has written many books, including, Your body’s many cries for water and others.
A WALK THROUGH YOUR PANTRY:
GET RID OF: Soft drinks. Most soft drinks’ first ingredient is sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Both are genetically modified and come with a host of problems when ingested too often.
REPLACE WITH: Choose to drink water instead. Water increases energy, prevents arthritis and heartburn and cure these problems, flushes out toxins, boosts the immune system, and prevents cramps, sprains, headaches and migraines as well as high blood pressure, MS, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
