Why I’m crazy, and how that helps you

User:Grunt's insane stamp.

A couple of weeks ago, I told you about a personality test that I had taken called an Enneagram.

I already knew that I was an introvert, that I need alone time to rejuvenate. I knew that I like to research and analyze and figure out how and why things work. I knew that it takes a long time before I let someone into my inner world.

But some of my behaviors can be pretty extreme, and some of that I did not realize. Continue reading

The Breast Cancer Awareness That No One Talks About

English: These are some items given away to pr...

All this pink Stinks!

Do you know that with all this pink garbage for sale, that many of these companies don’t donate a thing to breast cancer? It’s just a marketing bandwagon. And the companies that do donate, for many it’s just pennies on the dollar.

But the most disturbing thing is that No One  is talking about what you really need to be aware of when it comes to breast cancer.

Do you know that if you eat the typical American diet that you are being flooded with chemicals that mimic female estrogen every single day?

Think about that.

Now this is just Common Sense. You don’t need a science degree.

Soy was the go to natural ingredient to help menopause symptoms – why?

Because it acts like female estrogen in the body.

Do you eat packaged foods? Try to find one that doesn’t have soy on the label. How many doses are you getting a day?

What is fed to commercial beef, pork, and chicken? Soy. Oh, and added hormones. Ask a breast cancer survivor if they will ever buy Tyson or Purdue ever again.

Do you still microwave in plastic?

When plastic is heated, it leaches chemicals into your food that act like female estrogen in the body. Some say extreme temperature changes of any kind, including freeze/thaw can also leach chemicals into your food.

And do you ever wonder what happened to manly men? You hardly see them anymore.

Do I sound a little angry? I am.

I am furious that our government allows us to be poisoned every day in favor of big company profits.

I am furious that I have to feel uncertain and guilty about every bite of food I eat that I did not make myself, and even then I can’t be sure it’s safe.

I do my best to minimize risk. I buy the best foods that I can afford. I try to make as much of my own food as I can.

And I put up hundreds of fast and easy recipes so that you can do the same. Please use them.

There are a few more benefits to eating this way -

  • You’ll lose weight without really trying
  • You’ll think more clearly
  • You’ll have more energy
  • You’ll get sick less often

Sound worth it?

Take care of yourself. You are worth it!

 

 

Easy Biscuits To Die For!

Amaretti biscuits for Christmas

Who came up with that line anyway – to die for?

But these biscuits are so easy and so delicious that I’m betting this will become a weekend treat in your home.

They just don’t really have a name. They were originally meant to top a cobbler. Oh well – here is the recipe -

3 cups flour

4 teaspoons sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups whipping cream, not whipped

Preheat oven to 375 F

Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients with a fork

Add cream and stir gently until well combined.

Drop dough in mounds on cookie sheets. You should have 8 per sheet. A regular ice cream scoop is perfect.

Bake 15 – 17 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy with real butter and fresh preserves or honey.

Dinner variation - 

Add garlic powder and Parmesan cheese to the dough before baking.

If you don’t need that many biscuits, just halve the recipe.

Enjoy!
