Serves 5 people   

Ingredients:

3 large eggs @ room temperature, 3 Tablespoons cream cheese softened, 1/8 tsp cream of tartar, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder optional

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F., Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, separate the eggs and place egg whites in a large mixing bowl, and the yolks in a smaller mixing bowl.  Add cream of tartar to egg whites and whip with an electric mixer on high speed, until stiff peaks form.  Set aside. Add cream cheese to egg yolks.  Add salt and garlic powder, if using.  Mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Slowly add egg yolk mixture to whipped egg whites and fold in gently with a spatula.  Make sure there are no white streaks in the batter.  Scoop batter with regular ice cream scoop onto prepared sheets. Gently spread into a circle.  Note that the more you spread, the flatter the bread will be.  Bake on the middle rack in preheated oven for 10 to 18 minutes OR until the bread is golden, slightly golden brown on top.  Cool slightly on the sheet, then remove onto cooling rack to cool completely.  Use in sandwiches, burgers, etc.

This recipe makes approximately 10 bread pieces. We do not recommend baking this bread on aluminum foil. It will stick and it will be tricky to remove from the baking sheet.

Easy to Make Bread Recipe with Healthy Nuts and Seeds

Things You'll Need: 1 cup raw almonds, 1 cup raw walnuts, 1 cup whole flax seeds, 1 cup raw sunflower seeds, 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, 1 cup sesame seeds, 5 eggs, 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt.

Tip: You can easily customize the recipe with your preferred nuts and seeds.  Simply make sure that you follow a nuts to seeds ratio of 2 cups of nuts to 4-5 cups of seeds.  Suggested nuts for addition/substitution: pecans, pine nuts, hazelnuts.  Suggested seeds for addition/substitution: poppy.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.  Mix thoroughly with a spatula or spoon. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.  Pour your mixture into the pan, and level out the top with your spatula and spoon.  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour.  Note that this is a very dense bread that won't leaven.  When finished baking, the loaf should sound hollow when tapped.

Thinly slice and enjoy any time of the day.  It's especially delicious toasted and topped with cheese, pate, jam, or luncheon meats.  On second thought, it goes well with practically any type of spread or topping.  Have fun and experiment!  TIP: This bread will keep in the refrigerator for around a week, and it also freezes very well,  For that reason, it's always a good idea to make two at once-- one for now and one for the freezer.  Once you get a taste, you'll be glad to have another one on hand when you run out.

To make this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

* 4 oz.magnesium oil

* 10 drops lavender oil

*10 drops Roman camomile oil

Combine these 3 ingredients in the listed quantities in a dark colored glass spray bottle.  The dark color will help keep the essential oils from losing their potency because exposure to sunlight will cause them to deteriorate.  Shake the spray bottle well to combine these ingredients.

Spray this mixture on the bottoms of your feet before bed to help you fall asleep in minutes. The skin of the feet can absorb the essences of these 3 simple ingredients, which help the body to relax and prepare us for an excellent night's rest.


             DIY: ALL NATURAL GINGER ALE

Homemade Ginger Ale is an excellent choice if you've got the flu, suffer from motion sickness, or have. It's also a wonderful tonic to try if you have joint stiffness or pain, since ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.

It's super easy to make and only calls for a few ingredients. This makes a big batch that lasts a while.

Homemade Ginger Ale

Serves 8

Ingredients:

4 cups water

2 cups sliced fresh ginger root (not necessary to peel, you can also grate the ginger which will       produce a sharper flavor)

2 Tbsp. Fresh squeezed lemon juice (yes you can also use lime juice!)

2 Tbsp. Honey (feel free to substitute organic Stevia, Yacaon, Xylitol, Coconut Palm sugar or your favorite lower glycemic sweetener. I like Stevia and Honey)

Sparkling mineral water or club soda

Directions:

In a medium saucepan, combine water and ginger over high heat. Once boiling, lower heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for one hour.  Remove lid and continue to simmer 30 more minutes.  Take off heat and strain mixture to remove ginger and let cool until the mixture is still quite warm but not so hot you lose the benefits of the honey when added.  Stir in lemon and honey. Cool completely.  This is your ginger syrup.

To make ginger ale, put a handful of ice into a glass.  Add 1/4 cup ginger syrup, and fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water. Enjoy!

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
