Liposomal Vitamin C Part 2


If you missed the first post here it is: Liposomal Vitamin C Part 1

Disclaimer: This is not to be used as medical advice only information. For medical advice consult your health professional.

Here goes! I have finally come up with my tolerance level of Liposomol Vitamin C. It was right at 6 grams like most other people. I could probably get down one more gram but since I have read that the tolerance of most folks is 6 grams  I will just stay there and see what my results will be. I wanted you to know this because any more than this and you are risking a case of gastrointestinal upset.

I do not make it the conventional way with sunflower lecithin because I wanted to cut down on any extra costs in our budget so I went with he lecithin that I had available from my chickens. Egg yolk has a lecithin that I have coming to me daily.

Liposomal vitamin C Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 or 2 egg yolks
6 grams (6000mg) of Ascorbic Acid caplets or powder
Cranberry/apple juice or the juice you prefer
1 tsp. honey

Directions:

1. With a coffee grinder grind your 6 1000 milligram caplets. It takes about 10 seconds.

2. With your stick blender or what ever you have blend the egg yolk and vitamin c powder for about one minute.

3. Then mix this with your juice and honey.

4. Drink this down holding your breath and keeping your jug of juice handy so you can chug a little juice after because it has a very bad eggy aftertaste. Some people will not need to hold your nose and if you concentrate on the vitamin c taste it won't bother you at all that the egg taste is there.

Do your research to see if Vitamin C is for you!

That's it. That's how I do it for now. Who knows I may break down and buy the powdered kind and the sunflower lecithin in liquid form that would work easy too. Here is a video on that process.

Back Yard Water Park Part 1

Today for cleaning their rooms the kids got to have a fun water park day.

Homemade Water Sprinkler: First we made our own fun water sprinkler out of an old vinegar bottle and some duct tape. Later we added a small strip of plastic that we had around the yard for the slippery factor.

Water shakers/pourers: Then we took some old plastic containers that creamer comes in (My Mom saves for us) and made some water shaking fun! Need I say there was a whole lot of shaking going on. Plus when that got old they decided to take the lids off and pour the water on. The zildren know how to have fun, at the least the younger ones do. The older more sophisticated ones decided to walk to the library. They don't like it when their feathers get wet. They don't know what they were missing.

Tomorrow we want to do some more fun things so be sure to check in and see what we have thought up! We are all about good CLEAN fun, well at least watery.

What do you do for water fun in the yard?




Liposomal Vitamin C Benefits Part 1

Note: Remember I am not a doctor do not take my advice as medical!

I have been researching Liposomal Vitamin C because I would like to benefit from getting more vitamin C in my system. I am working on a daily drink that will work good for my regimen and will soon have the kinks worked out. I have been conferring with a man I met online through his videos on natural health and have really enjoyed his input.

How To Clean A Shower Head

If you have hard water deposits and your shower head no longer sprays at full force, don't throw it out just clean it up like new.

Supplies:
clear plastic bag
vinegar
rubber band, twist tie or strong tape

Directions:

1. Fill plastic bag 1/3 of the way full with vinegar. I buy the strongest that they have.

2. Take the bag to your shower and put your shower head into the bag.

3. While holding your bag of vinegar onto the shower head take a rubber band and bring it up over the bottom of the bag and secure.

If you have a very large shower  head then you will want to use a twist tie or a strong tape.

4. Come back in about 2 hours and your shower head will be beautiful again!

4. After both sides are fried remove to a baking sheet and sprinkle the other 1/2 c. of the cheese on the top of the patties to melt. Turn the oven on warm and leave in the oven until the cheese melts.

5. Dress your burger with anything you like on other types of burgers.

These are really great family favorites. Let me know how yours turns out!

Did you know that Nopal or Prickly Pear Cactus is good for normalizing blood sugar. When you cook it it is kind of like cooking a okra a little slimy but doesn't taste like okra. Try it you may like it!

This is a recipe for when you don't have much but you are making what you do have appealing to the masses or to the zildren in our case.

Isn't it great when the Lord cooks with you and shows you just what to combine for a pleasant meal.

a spoon of plain yogurt (per tortilla)
tortillas

1. Coat large skillet with vegetable oil.

2.  Add diced onions, spam, garlic, seasoning,cilantro and picante sauce to pan and cook on high stirring constantly till onions are translucent.

3. Add your hot sauce and and stir in pan to coat. Cook another minute to blend the flavors.

4. Build your fajitas with the mixture and add a dollop of plain yogurt on top. Delish!

There Is A Special Room!

This morning during our breakfast devotions. I talked to the kids about a special room. So I thought I would tell you about our conversation, because they all wanted to go in there and stay a while after I told them about it!

       “Corridor Of White Empty Interior”

                   by Sira Anamwong

To them It was an imaginary room that they thought didn't exist......

"What if there was this special room that you could go into and God would talk directly to you in there. You could go in there and God would give you something special, just for you that would help you through the day?"

"Would you be noisy and laugh and cut up and even talk when God was talking?"

"Would you ignore God and play with your toys."

"Would you God in, here God talking and walk out when he was mid sentence?"

"Would you be quiet and listen really close to what God was saying so that you didn't miss a word?"

"There is a place like this! Yes, as soon as you open your Bible and pray God's Holy Spirit comes to sit with you and teach you and give you something special just for you."

Right after we had this conversation we prayed for a family that we have had on our hearts. I told the children that we should continue to pray for this family every time that God brought them to our minds. We made an agreement to do this and then we opened our Bible to read what God had for us. I chose to read from Job because it was in my daily bible reading scriptures and we have been going through a lot of trials lately. I told the kids to be waiting for the nugget that God was going to give us from the bible today and guess what.... it happened!!! but even more miraculously than I had expected. We read these words...

Job 42
10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: 

 I didn't know what was going to be in that particular chapter of Job. No way did I plan any of this I just decided to have a devotion for the kids this morning because we needed it! I love it when God speaks and there is no doubt He was listening to you and what you were going through and that he cares! So many times we read our Bibles and don't expect God to speak directly to us, but he can and he will if we let him. Your heart needs to be in a place where he can mold it.

We can't be dictating to God how your day will be and asking God to somehow bless it after the fact. We all do this in little or big ways. Instead we need to open up God's word in a holy and reverent way allowing God to speak and for us to listen. Sometimes we have a lot to tell God and to ask for but we also need to just be still and listen, waiting for Him to give us something to grow on.

I hope this is a blessing to someone today to just take some time out and listen!

1. Make sections into a long snake shape like you are playing with playdough or get the kids to help!

2. Roll flat with a rolling pin.

3. Take a pizza cutter and cut into long inch strips and roll into cinnamon rolls.

4. Add to your cookie sheet or casserole pan and drizzle with melted butter or spray with oil.

5. allow to rise a second time and make your icing!
