Farmhouse Lemon Pudding

lemon

I happen to love lemons, I put one whole lemon in my green juice daily. My peels go into a jar with white vinegar to create my power cleaner, literally degreases everything. I let mine marinate for about a month. My gluten free, toxin free life also led me to pudding, lemon pudding that was a hit. I took a picture of my evening snack the other night and posted it to Facebook and the recipe was requested so I am obliging.

My kitchen evolved to one that cooks  with fresh things from our farm and local farmers who have animals that I do not, namely a milk cow but I want one. Just need the strength and energy to keep up with one and I don’t have it right now.

I recently found I have Hashimoto’s Thyroid on top of RA and Lyme and was instructed right away to go gluten free. I need to lean towards the Wahl’s Diet for autoimmune function as well as one gentle on my damaged gut that still struggles to heal. I am creating my own recipes in hopes that some of you with the same problems find ideas, I am always starving for them! I need new things to eat, I am a foodie that lives in this prison, not kidding. I am the gal who joked I could live on baked good and coffee, I love them both that much.

Sometimes I find a recipe that works, a new thing, I try not to duplicate the things I miss, I pretend they died. I have had decedence and loved many chocolate things and fondly recall our relationship but it is over.

On this recipe I am going to try honey next as the sweetener, I will keep you all posted. I used only about 1/4 cup sugar in mine, I steerr from too much, bad stuff but we do have to live. the land of complete deprivation is hell, I won’t lie to you..

That said, enter pudding. I can have pudding. Now so can you!

Much love,

Marla

Glowing Green Juice

Sustainable Choices ~ Green Lyme's Disease Smoothie

Every morning I start my day off with one of these green glowing beauties. Thanks to a crazy health mis-diagnosis  I experience a lot of pain and struggle daily. The one thing I force myself to do is juice. I have found that my diet plays a big role in the way my body works and feels.

During a health crisis healthy eating is key, but at times you must take the next step. I began watching documentaries on my sick days to pass time and learn about wellness. I began with Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead featuring Joe Cross and Crazy, Sexy, Cancer featuring the story of Kris Carr. Their stories inspired me to look beyond  everything I tried before and look at how I use food.

I’ve been told by many this is gross, extreme and just plain weird but let me tell you about why this is an important key is unlocking my return to health.

One word, Acid, no not the trippy kind, the kind that creates illness in a human. Acids occur naturally, the by-products of respiration, cellular breakdown, metabolism and exercise. Not to mention the host of acidic foods that are consumed in the traditional American diet. Just to name a few, alcohol, refined grains, sugar, soda, chemicals from pesticide, medication and preservatives…shall I keep going? It’s super easy to become acidic, not so much on the alkaline.

What happens? Well anyone who knows about a fish in an aquarium knows about Ph, Acidity and Alkalinity. PH too high? Sick Fish! An acid environment in the body is a breeding ground for bad bacteria, yeast and fungi. Check your urine to find out with litmus paper strips sold online, they are pretty accurate.

Acidity over a long period of time saps the minerals from your body, leading to osteoporosis  and weak teeth and bones.

Enzymes are another big factor…up to 95% of your body funtion depends on enzymes! We get them from food but much of the time we cook it first and kill them, sad fact! Raw food is a great source of enzymes!

The long and short is this, reducing the the acid that creates the free radicals that make us sick is the best way to fight illness without drugs.

I for one did my run with meds and know far too well the side efects and toxicity it creates. I said goodbye to that and said hello green juice and have not looked back!
