Multi Colour Pancakes

green red paincakesSince the date of the Greek & Russian Orthodox Easter is based on a modified Julian calendar (while the Western world uses the Gregorian calendar), the festivities sometimes do not usually occur at the same time as other Christian Easter celebrations. In 2013, Greek Orthodox Easter is celebrated more than a month later than Easter observances in the Western church this year — on Sunday, May 5, 2013. So this a time for our PANCAKE WEEK!!!!! :))) and we made some red and green pancakes for now…

– 250 ml Isola Bio Buckwheat Milk or any non dairy milk

– 150 gr Of Self Raising Flour (we use Gluten & Wheat Free from Doves Farm)

– 1 egg

– 20gr Goji Berries for red or 20gr Sun Chlorella for green

In a bowl mix all  ingredients. Heat a non-stick griddle pan or skillet and grease with ghee, coconut oil, or butter. Pour batter (if a little thick use a spoon to help flatten out the batter in the pan) into 4-inch rounds. Cook and flip until each side is done.

Remove from pan and spread with ghee, butter or coconut oil. Drizzle with honey. Top with berries and enjoy your Saturday!

Makes about 12 4-inch pancakes

Avocado & how to cut it?

avocado

To preserve the area with the greatest concentration of antioxidants, you basically want to peel the avocado with your hands, as you would a banana:

1. First, cut the avocado length-wise, around the seed

2. Holding each half, twist them in the opposite directions to separate them from the seed

3. Remove the seed

4. Cut each half, lengthwise

5. Next, using your thumb and index finger, simply peel the skin off each piece

How to Get More Avocado into Your Diet

While avocado is commonly eaten raw, on salad or alone, with nothing but a dash of Himalayan salt and some ground pepper, for example, there are many other ways to include avocado in your diet. For example, you can use avocado in the following ways:

• Use as a fat replacement in baking. Simply replace the fat called for (such as oil, butter or shortening) with an equal amount of avocado

• Use as a first food for babies, in lieu of processed baby food.

Medicinal Kitchen Herbs – Part 2

Part 1

Cinnamon (cinnamomum zeylanicum):

Cinnamon

Is available as bark, shoots and sticks. The bark is mainly sweet, but also slightly hot and bitter; the shoots have a very different taste and are not so sweet. Both are warming and tonics. Cinnamon and whole barley soup is good for all kidney problems, balancing water volume, general tone and function and helping to cleanse the system. Cinnamon and cloves complement each other in cooking, warming and speeding digestion. Nausea, flatulence and diarrhoea can be helped with them. Cinnamon is chromium rich (chromium is important for blood sugar regulation) and can be used for those who have low blood sugar, hypoglycaemia and potential insulin resistance in the first stages. Diabetics must use under practitioner direction if using large doses/capsules but a little in food is fine.

Cloves (Syzygium aromaticum):

Cloves

A stimulant and is effective for warming the body, increasing circulation, improving digestion, alleviating nausea/vomiting and clearing phlegm. Cloves are also capable of inhibiting viruses and fungi as well as parasitic eggs. Use sparingly as the flavour is strong.

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum):

Coriander

A great anti-viral herb. As a seed it is a good thickening agent. Helpful for stimulating digestion.

Cumin (Cuminum cyminum):

Cumin

Is ‘cooler’ than some spices, but it still warms and aids digestion. It is one of the best spices for the relief of flatulence. It is also a stimulant and antispasmodic, useful to the heart and uterus.

GEOPATHIC STRESS & EMR (ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION)

GEOPATHIC STRESS & EMR (ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION)
has been found to be the common factor in most serious and long-term illnesses and psychological conditions.

How do geopathic stress and electromagnetic radiation affect us?
We are now living in an environment where we are being bombarded with electromagnetic frequencies our bodies are not adapted to. Human bodies operate according to very complex electrochemical processes, which can be very easily disturbed by electromagnetic radiation and geopathic stress, which lower our immune system.

Geopathic stress and electro-smog have been found to be a common factor in many serious and long standing illnesses such as cancer, ME, sleep problems, cot deaths, fatigue, difficulty conceiving, learning difficulties and psychological conditions. For example, cancer as a disease of location has now become widely accepted amongst cancer specialists in Germany and other countries. “According to studies I have initiated, at least 92% of all cancer patients I have examined have remained for long periods of time, especially in respect of their sleeping place, in geopathically stressed zones.” Dr Hans Nieper, Cancer Specialist

 

What is geopathic stress?
Geopathic stress (GS) occures where the Earth’s electromagnetic field becomes distorted. The Earth resonates with an electromagnetic frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz – Schumann resonances (SR), which falls within the range of (alpha) human brainwaves. Underground streams, sewers, water pipes, electricity, tunnels and underground railways, mineral formations and geological faults distort the natural resonance of the Earth thus creating geopathic stress.

What is EMR (ElectroMagnetic Radiation)?
Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) or sometimes called electrosmog or electrostress is generated by most electrical appliances, electrical cables, transformers, hair dryers, electrical shavers, microwaves, mobile masts, cordless telephones and mobile phones.

What Are Electromagnetic Fields?

Electromagnetic fields (or sometimes called electrosmog or electrostress) are areas of energy that surround electronic devices. The World Health Organization (WHO) explains that the electric fields are created by differences in voltage and magnetic fields are created when the electric current flows.3
According to WHO, electromagnetic fields affect us because our human bodies have their own electric and biochemical responses (e.g., nervous system, digestion, brain function, heart function). So exposure to EMFs can interact with your body in adverse ways.

 

Simply put, EMFs come from electricity:

  • In your home – DECT cordless phones, hairdryers, vacuums, refrigerators, microwave ovens, irons, televisions (the flat panel TVs are much better than the old box-style TVs), main ring and lighting circuits, dimmer switches, electric blankets, electric razors, electric toothbrushes, WiFi, etc.
  • In your office – computers, fluorescent or halogen lighting, fax machines, photocopiers, scanners, cell phones and WiFi.
  • Outside – power lines (high voltage cables either overhead or buried in the ground), transformers (the gray cylinders raised up on poles that look like trash cans), electrical substations, cell phone towers, cities that provide citywide wireless Internet (WiFi) and electromagnetic radiation from near neighbors’ electronic equipment.
  • Airplanes Several airlines, such as AirTran, are introducing Wi-Fi on planes, for all of their flights. Did you know that Wi-Fi on planes (and on the ground) emits electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that can negatively affect people, especially those with low immunity?

Most of our modern-day conveniences emit EMFs, some stronger than others. So does this mean you have to go off the grid?

Not at all! But if you are serious about achieving and maintaining your best health, there are several steps you can take to minimize the effect EMFs have on you and your family.
