A Sweet, Soothing, Recipe for a Sore Throat

Here is a recipe that will help with those dry, sore, throats:

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F

2. OPTION 1: Asian Pear

Cut an Asian pear in half and scoop out the fibrous core and seeds.

-OR-

OPTION 2: Tangerine

Peel the top part of a tangerine and remove the "core".

3. Add a heaping 1/2 tsp of rock sugar* into the space where you removed the seeds and core.

* we used organic coconut sugar and it worked wonderfully!

4. Bake the fruit for about 5 minutes (bake the tangerine with the remainder of the peel still on). The sugar should caramelize during this time.

Baking your fruit will help with the digestibility, which is especially important if you are recovering from a cold!

5. Allow your fruit to cool (peel the rest of the tangerine) and enjoy!

We made more ghee!

Our Anti-Aging class learned how to make ghee after discovering it to be one of 4 everyday herbs that, with a little education, are highly effective for health and longevity.   You can make some too by clicking the image for a pdf recipe!

The Truth is Still the Truth

"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you.  Never apologize for being correct or being years ahead of your time.  If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth."
- Mahatma Gandhi
