Q & A about Spices…..

I know ginger is good for your tummy and turmeric is good for you as well. I was told a few times how black pepper works great with the turmeric, because it absorbs better.

There were also a few videos on facebook showing a mixture of honey, turmeric, and ginger. The problem I had with that was knowing a tiny jar will get lost and forgotten in my fridge, so I did this my way.

My way (now) is: A teaspoon of honey  topped with powdered turmeric, ginger, and black pepper. 

I  also add these spices to some hot lemon water, but it is way too hot for that. I am sure there are more ways for these species. Had to ask another question –

First Answer: {} What are the benefits of taking turmeric ginger and black pepper? Having a mixture of turmeric, black pepper and ginger in warm water early in the morning gives a nice boost to metabolism. This is possible because curcumin interacts with the body’s pancreatic, fat, liver and immune system cells. It also takes care of activities such as immune resistance and inflammation.Mar 14, 2018

Ginger & Turmeric Honey Bomb – Green Kitchen Stories : It has antibiotic effects and can help digestion, detoxification, infections, inflammation, joint pain, circulation, nausea (also pregnancy nausea) and motion sickness. It tastes great in juices and smoothies and adds a hot and fresh flavor.

Ginger is a marvelous root that you can purchase in almost every supermarket in every country. It has antibiotic effects and can help digestion, detoxification, infections, inflammation, joint pain, circulation, nausea (also pregnancy nausea) and motion sickness. It tastes great in juices and smoothies and adds a hot and fresh flavor. It goes very well in curries, fruit compotes and desserts and is one of my absolute favorite herbs.

Turmeric is a very strong antioxidant and has been used as traditional Ayurvedic medicine throughout history. It is considered a herb that cleanses the whole body, especially the liver. It is used to support digestion, treat fever, infections and inflammations. The active ingredient in turmeric is called curcumin and has been proved to have similar effects as anti-inflammatory medicine. Turmeric and black pepper is a great pair to match. The black pepper helps to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin by a thousand times. Turmeric has a slight bitter taste but blends very well with other flavors.  {}

Celery Juice or Not?

I had saw celery juice in the store, but walked passed it. I saw it a few time on facebook, but never gave it a second look. I made a sour face thinking why would I drink something green?

I started thinking about how I can add more healthy food items to my diet, so I can get back to a better me, and stop taking all of these meds. Once again someone was talking about celery juice.

Guess who bought a bag of celery and just cut up a few pieces before I actually knew what to do with it. I was just thinking about adding a little water and putting it into my mini NutriBullet.

Then I thought I should see how it is actually done, if I was wrong.

Rachael Ray Show

Hannah Bronfman — who has over 500k Instagram followers — calls celery juice her “healthy obsession.” Here’s how to make it. {}

** I love the Rachael Ray Show and I know she has some great ideas, so of course I clicked on this. I was all in until  Ms. Bronfman said this drink should be drunk in the morning on an empty tummy. She did say you can make it the day before, but it’s best the day you make it. This would be a no for me, because of my work schedule. I may try it on an off day.

I wasn’t ready to give up on it. One more video..

Joe Duff – The Diet Chef  Celery juice has become incredibly popular. Today, I’ll show you how to make celery juice in a blender, and without a juicer! WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS: https://www.thedietchefs.com/celery-j…   {}

This video said almost what I was thinking, but the extra work to get to the juice has me saying, “no” once again.  I still would like some more info. 

**side note: I thought I was going to be making some celery juice to take the place of one of the glasses of water I am making myself drink,  but that idea went up in flames.  

I asked google about celery juice and this caught my attention: https://www.eatingwell.com/article/291470/celery-juice-the-health-benefits-side-effects-and-science-behind-the-trend/ 

Yes, there was more, but I am done. When I got up for another cup of water I saw the celery I had already cut up. I knew I wasn’t going to just snack on them or throw them away. Since it was almost 1 o’clock in a salad it goes. 

I jazzed up a salad I made before (that didn’t have celery or tomatoes in it, but it was good.  I did add in a little ranch dressing in it as well. https://thestayathomechef.com/cucumber-salad/ 

I learned how to eat with chopsticks a few weeks ago and can’t stop eating with them, even when it’s not a California roll. After a light snack and another cup of water. I am going to start on my red project.

Therefore I Can…..

I know I am not alone when I say, “I am grateful for a job, but I know I am worth better.” I am there, just to be there, and there is no fulfillment or joy going day by day in a blurr. It gets to the point I am dreading going into my workplace where I know they DO NOT CARE about me. I know I am more than what this company sees….

  • I can read: Therefore I can learn……
  • I can write: Therefore I repeat in black and white what to do…
  • I can move: Therefore I can get to the job site and do whatever task I am hired to do.
  • I have a heart: Therefore I care what I do and will do the best job I can do.

I spent a few hours online looking for another job, and I realized what I was doing as I found things wrong with each job. I know I want to find another job, but I don’t want to follow someone else’s rules.

I started my blog a few years ago, because I enjoy writing. I know what I write is a little all over the place and may or may not always be written correctly. Then I got to thinking maybe I can sell a blanket or two and not stress too much on finding another job. 

I like what I am doing, even with rude customers, but they all are not that way. My eyes are starting to hurt looking at this screen, so I am going to look for an anime to watch and work on another project.

My goal was to learn how to get my blog to work for me.  I got side tracked, by looking for a job in the real world, and not doing what was planned. I am still Smiling, because there is always tomorrow. If you don’t give up, you can always win another day, and I will have that win One Day!!

Need More Yarn….

I am still wondering how I could have worked on so many crochet projects, and not notice my yarn stash is gone?

There were a few times I almost had a smile, because someone wanted me to make something for them. As I listened to the colors and the size they wanted, I had more than five  patterns planned out, and was ready to get started.

I have learned from past mistakes to tell them your price, half up front, and the rest when done. No money, no blanket, and no you are not getting a refund. I should charge you for taking my smile away and wasting my time.

The Computer Wins Today….

I cannot believe I worked all day on a post for my Krachet Cafe post, but I am having trouble editing it on WordPress. I am beyond done with working on my site right now. Almost five hours wasted (with 1048 words, videoes watched, and editing pictures). Well I won’t say it was a total waste, because I have been drinking water and working out ten mintues every half an hour.

I know I will NOT come back to my original post today. I miss when you can just copy and past from Google Doc. oh well, maybe I will get back to it tomorrow. It isn’t hard not to believe I really don’t like computers. It is time to crochet and relax.

Bye IV Now LD*
