Cleaning up our Act, one can go Nuts!

Cleaning up our Act

Several years ago while refusing to accept our aches and pains as part of the natural cycle of aging, we began cleaning up our act by removing high fructose corn syrup from our diet. And that big nasty hides in a heap of stuff! Label reading became an accepted and necessary part of our shopping trips.

The payoff was a noticeable lessening of pains in the……joints. Feeling better AND encouraged we moved forward cleaning up our act by diminishing processed food, didn’t do added sugar or white flour, didn’t keep any in the pantry, but again, they too hide in multitudes of…. okay I’m just gonna say it…CRAP!

So my call to action showed up in the form of juicing-Get an abundance of fruit and veggies on board baby!!!!! And it worked pretty darn well for a while. But I gotta say on those mornings when you need to get a move on, the chopping, slicing, dicing and in some cases peeling and then the clean up proved problematic, at least in any consistent fashion.

My next mission was to buy THE appliance of my dreams!!!! That powerful motor and adjustable settings spoke to me……SANG to me!!!! No I am not about to go all x rated on ya….. I speak of my beloved Vitamix.

I had seen one in action at a home show about a dozen years earlier and had wanted one ever since, but let’s face it those bad boys aren’t cheap! But once you make your health and well-being a priority, this investment just made sense. I did find that you can get a refurbished one, and it has worked perfectly all these years.

I torque that sucker up most mornings for smoothies and they too have evolved over time. In the early days of cleaning up our act I used soy milk and that got me HOT  …… by way of flashes …. not in a good way!  So next came other milk alternatives, primarily rice or almond, whichever was most cost-effective that shopping trip. But let’s face it, you don’t know what you don’t know until you learn a bit more.The discovery about additives to the packaging-BPA’s and additives to the product itself-carrageenan and the like…..NO I DON”T LIKE IT!!!!! Another evolutionary change was called for.

I love researching for things to bump up our smoothies, and we use lots of organic powders to supercharge and add an array of nutrients, but at the core I needed to find that “carrier elixir” that had eluded me.

Well no more my friends!!! DRUM ROLL PLEASE…………………………………..

Homemade coconut milk!!!!! I am not gonna go all pioneer/hippy on your backside and claim that I buy fresh coconut, crack them open and extract the meat to make the magic happen, NAY NAY I say, but after much research and diligence I found an outstanding source for organic coconut flakes and a company I feel great about purchasing from, because we do after all vote with our $$$$ and business practices matter to me. I am frugal as well, so when I say I search….. we are talkin high and low my friend.

But before I disclose my new bestie let me offer some info on the benefits of coconuts-THIS STUFF ROCKS!!!!!

Benefits of Coconut

Now here you may be saying “but you’re going all flakey on me here, what about the oil?” Trust me when I say “it’s in there” or don’t, read the benefits, get a (good) source of coconut that suits your needs, and if you do go the route of making your own coconut milk, just put in the fridge and watch the magic rise to the top!!!!

My personal experience over the last two weeks include increased energy, a positive change in skin, hair and nails and YIPEEE!!!!! A 6 lb. weight loss!!!Plus this elixir is yummy as all get out!!!

I hosted a study group a week and a half ago and I made the coconut milk available for coffee, one of the ladies made a delectable gluten-free apple crisp and we proceeded to drizzle the coconut milk upon it…..excellent choice!!! They were surprised to find out there were no flavorings or sweetener added to it.

The 2.2 lb. bags I purchased yielded 12 cups of organic coconut. I bought 3 of them. Many recipes use a ratio of 1 cup coconut to 4 cups water, for my purchase that translates to 87 cents a QUART!!!! That includes shipping!!! I have used a lesser ratio when a recipe calls for cream or I just want to revel in what feels like decadence in my coffee, but heck I’ll go $1.50 or so a quart on occasion “cuz I’m worth it!!!”

Another  HUGE reason to consider homemade coconut milk as opposed to almond milk  are the  regulations placed on “raw” almonds. Check out this Natural News article.

Good News

Monsatan is Getting their Ass Beat

Good News Ass Beating
Hit them again.

Otherwise known as Monsanto. There’s Good News. Yep, There are protests all over the World. And this Doowan couldn’t happier. I applaud everyone. It is amazing what we can do, when we all come together. The proof is in this Good News Video.

Man this feels good. We finally have some Good News knowing that the GMO Armageddon is almost ended. However there are still individuals that don’t know what GMOs are. So we aren’t done yet. Keep up the pressure, tell everyone you know. Stop buying their products. The job won’t be finished until Monsatan is dead and buried. I will start digging the hole, in their own poisoned soil.

Monsanto Tombstone
MonSatan Crawled out of the gutter. Died by the people.

I won’t take up your time so you can watch the video. I am so proud of everyone. Good Job! This is Good News. Take a moment and be proud of yourselves. Job well done. We came together and this evil is getting their Ass Beat. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving Company. Who’s next?

We still have a lot of cleanup to do. Power to the People! Let’s kick some more butt.

Hip, Hip, Hooray!

 There’s Good News, MonSatan is getting his Ass Beat. It’s about time there’s some Good News!

The Root of all Evil

Money is the Root of all Evil. Yes, I know it says, The Love of Money.

The Love of Money
Money is the Root of all Evil

Can one Love something if it doesn’t exist? So, if money didn’t exist could one love it? It’s the actual money concept that creates the love of it, that is evil. Therefore, Money is the Root of all Evil, or the lack of Money that creates the Evil.

One may argue the point that it’s the love of money that’s evil. Which brings up and interesting point. Can the love of anything be Evil? I considered the lack of Love is what creates Evil. But than again. Some people just Love Evil.

How can this be? Is loving Evil really Love? Maybe it’s just liking Evil a lot and not true Love. And these Evil loving people just think it’s Love. Hence, the love of Money is the root of all Evil.

Isn’t Love felt, and not thought? So when someone says, “I think I Love you”. Run away!

Which brings up another question. Is Evil a personage, thought, feeling, or maybe an action?

Money the Root of all Evil
Evil Personified. Can Evil Love Evil itself ?

If Money is the Root of all Evil then to eliminate money would eliminate evil right? Probably not, since money has no real value except the implied misconception that it’s something of value. Thus, Evil takes hold in the misconception.

Sow is it the Love of something valueless that creates Evil. Maybe it’s the implied value that’s Evil. Since Money doesn’t have real value. It’s the belief of value that’s Evil. Man, this Money is the Root of all Evil is a hard one to figure out.

Coins however, have an inherent value in the metals they contain, like gold, silver, copper, and nickel. Even these have an implied value, because these metals only have value if the metal can serve a human purpose.

All paper money is a promise to pay. This is why it’s called a promissory note, tender, or bill. Nothing of value ever changes hands. It’s just the promise to pay that was really exchanged. Is the promise the thing that has value? Yet this promise is an intangible object that can’t be seen, touched, tasted, smelled. Oh, however it can be heard.

Money is the root of all Evil is again a misconception because it’s not the money that’s really evil, but the implied misconception that one needs it. This conception is really the root of all evil. Because, if one places a dollar bill on the table, is that dollar bill inherently Evil?… No, well than again, Yes.

No, if it just sits there. Yes, if one feels the need to pick it up and use it.

I think I have it ! It’s the need for Money that is Evil. Or is it the use of Money? I give up!

Changing Ones Mind

Akashic Records
Mind is a terrible thing to waste. Sometimes all it needs is a change. We’re not talking Money here. However, it is a cool play on Words.

What I do know is that home-grown Non-GMO Heirloom Vegetables and Herb Seeds could replace the money of no value, with a promise to eat something of real nutritional value. Next time you’re hungry, try eating a quarter, or a Dollar Bill.

You may, at this time, think that I can go to the store with Money and buy something to eat, Money is the Root of all Evil, and this is typical money backed thinking. This type of thinking will change very quickly when the store shelves are empty. Or your Money backed belief that money has value is devalued.

Don’t fool yourself into thinking that this will never happen. Money is the Root of all Evil, (Latest happening was with Sandy in NY). Plus the fact, the United States is on the brink of economic collapse. The U.S. owes trillions. The people it owes trillions too, don’t what a promise to pay in the future. They want something of tangible value now.

The Money Spiral
Deflating Dollars being sucked down the Black hole of Debt. We need something of value. Seed Money!

We have tendencies to think that things will never change. Change is a powerful consent in this Universe. Sow we may need to change our thinking, thus find value in something else besides Money.

Like Non GMO Heirloom Vegetable and Herb seeds. Investing in seeds now is the best investment ones worthless fiat money could make.

Ever try eating a coin. Has the favor of dirt. For some reason it doesn’t break down into nutrients the body finds useful. Another interesting concept about seed money is that one can harvest their money/seeds and grow more money next year. Try that with a bank account now days.

Of course, one needs to start with Non GMO heirloom seeds if they want to harvest their Seed Money. Because Hybrid and Monsatan GMO seeds just won’t grow next year, just like a saving account in the bank.

Gold Bars
Is this what the fuss is all about? Ever try eating a gold bar?

Some people believe Gold and Silver have value now, because of the economy. When the economy collapses then what? Let them plant their gold and silver and see what grows for them to eat. They can have their gold and silver false Gods. We Doowans are banking on the Non GMO Heirloom Seed Gods for our salvation.

That's a lot of Seed Money. The Seed GODS have Spoken.
That’s a lot of Seed Money. The Seed GODS have Spoken.

While Seed Money is mostly a new lighthearted Doowan concept, it also carries subtle statements and questions about our relationships with nature and the value of money. However this Seed Money concept makes good sense, a growing wisdom. Can you imagine a culture that deems food so important that its currency system is based on seeds? Call it the seed standard, instead of the gold standard. When having a pocketful of seeds is a sign of wealth and prosperity? Being able to feed a your family, or even a community could be worth it’s weight in, let’s say gold/seeds.

Seed Money
Seed Money in all shapes and sizes

Dump your Gold and Silver, purchase something of value. Keep the paper Money as you will need it for something when there is no more toilet paper on the store shelves.

Seed Money will be the next form of Currency. Money is the Root of all Evil, No matter how one looks at it. Any form of fiat currency is absolutely worthless.

Seed Money is a currency one can grow with. A currency one can bank and gather some interest on their deposits. It’s much better to have seed money in the ground than fiat currency in the banks. Grow rich with seed money, it does grow on trees, and in your garden. It only takes a few seeds to grow into something of great value.

Open your seed money-saving account today. Health plan included at no extra charge. Invest in your future today. Grow in wealth tomorrow.

Money is the Root of all Evil. Unless it allows one to receive the Love of Seeds. Grow Rich with Seeds. Now that’s the value of Love!
