MORINGA TO THE RESCUE!!

 

MORINGA:

  • ✔BENEFIT FROM NATURE’S FINEST MULTIVITAMIN. Packed with over 90 essential ingredients including 20+ types of amino acids, 40+ antioxidants, 35+ anti-inflammatory compounds, key vitamins, minerals, protein, Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils and phytonutrients. Few foods can match the nutrition provided by Moringa.
  • ✔ENJOY THE GREENEST, FRESHEST RAW LEAVES, NEVER FREEZE-DRIED. Our Moringa Oleifera has been carefully sun- and shade-dried at the ideal low temperature to preserve its precious nutrients and quickly packaged to maintain freshness. Other sellers use industrial machines to freeze dry or heat dry their Moringa. The sun is better! You can see the results in the bright green colors and rich, earthy scent of our Moringa.
  • ✔WE SUSTAINABLY SOURCE ONLY FROM SMALL ORGANIC FARMS in the Himalayan foothills where Moringa originates. Other sellers run huge industrial-sized operations which produce lower quality leaves. Always ask how your Moringa is grown! Hundreds of 5 star reviews from happy Amazon customers attest to the quality and purity in every bag we sell.
  • ✔MADE IN THE USA IN AN FDA-REGISTERED AND ORGANIC-CERTIFIED FACILITY. Always ask where your Moringa is made! Other sellers package in countries without the same safeguards found here. Our Moringa is made in small batches, following strict health and safety guidelines. It’s then rigorously tested to ensure purity and quality and delivered quickly to maintain peak freshness.

SAFETY WARNING: While Moringa is safe and effective for most people to take, you should always consult with a doctor before starting any new exercise or nutrition plan and should immediately stop using if you feel any ill effects. In addition, Moringa is a mild laxative, so you should start with 1 capsule per day to see how your body reacts. Over time, you can increase the dosage, if you have no issues with it.

Moringa is a great addition to your daily green drink or smoothie–just add a few teaspoons to your favorite recipe and enjoy! Moringa powder can also be sprinkled on top of many dishes just before they are served (Moringa shouldn’t be cooked or it loses its strength). These include meats, stews, soups, and salads. However you enjoy it, make Moringa a part of your daily health regime!

Ingredients: 100% Pure Certified Organic Moringa Leaf Powder.

Diabetic Treat: Sinfully Good

Okay, I’m about to drop a bomb on all my diabetic peeps!! My dad was a diabetic and one of the things he used to crave the most was sweets. Which was kinda funny, since, he never really ate sweets before he was diagnosed. But, anyway, for some reason he was REALLY craving them. So, being the awesome daughter that I am, I did some research on how to naturally quench his craving for sweets.

There are many different ways for diabetics to curb their desire for sweets, but here’s one that tastes truly sinful…DATES! Dates are sooooo sweet and you would think that they would be at the top on the no-no list for diabetic. But… let me break it down for ya….

Dates are:

  • Easily digested
  • High in fiber
  • Prevent LDL cholesterol absorbtion
  • High in iron, potassium, B-vitamins, vitamins A & K, copper, manganese, magnesium & niacin
  • They have a low glycemic index
  • Increase energy
  • Fat Free
  • Have a ton of antioxidants

So, here’s the thing. Each person is different, what works for one person, may not necessarily work for another. I know that some foods that were supposed to be good for diabetics, weren’t good for my dad. I would suggest that you start small, like, maybe, one date. See how you feel, if you don’t have a reaction, then, next time eat 2 dates.

I would like to point out also, that dates, should only be consumed as a snack, it’s not a meal replacement. That goes for anyone, not just those with diabetes. Dates are such a powerhouse of nutrients that only need to eat 3 or 4 of them to get their benefits.

Here are the ones I get from the regular grocery store:

Here is an excellent recipe to curb your “candy” craving. It actually taste a lot like brownies 😀

IMG_20170526_100632119
Chop up about 3 or 4 dates and put in a small food processor

ADD IN 1 Tablespoon each….

2 T. Almond meal
IMG_20170526_101253935
Cocoa powder
IMG_20170526_101307394
Ground flax seeds *Flax seeds are much easier to digest when ground. Don’t buy them already ground, they loose their potency. Freshly grind them to get the most benefit. *The processor won’t grind them, you will need a coffee grinder.

Sesame seeds

process in food processor…

IMG_20170526_101733792
Add in 2 or 3 drops of flavoring. I love the combination of orange & chocolate so I add wild orange. Peppermint may be good too. I have never tried it.

process again until a ball forms

IMG_20170526_101846548

remove from processor and shape into balls or whatever shape you like. Top with a little orange zest and enjoy!! So YUMMY 😀

IMG_20170526_102430492

***If your “batter” comes out too thin, just add more almond meal. If it’s too thick add a tiny bit of water. Mine sometimes come out very sticky, but I don’t mind. If you don’t like the stickiness you can roll them in some cocoa powder or almond meal.

Thank you for stopping by 😀

With Love,

New Moon Report May 25

This new moon is a Super New Moon and will have everything to do with thinking and lower mind. This Moon phase is in Gemini, which is perfect for new beginnings, however , the key will be to keep your thoughts organized.

As you prepare for your new moon intentions it should be important to understand the energy that this particular New Moon will bring. There are no major aspects to the Moon right now so this is a pure energy, full of thoughts, and these thoughts can get the better if you. Remember that our thoughts are not our own they come from various outside influences and can cause you to pause unnecessarily. Thoughts are like a movie in our minds. We can speculate and anticipate how the ending will be, but, you will never know for sure what the true ending is until it happens.

Gemini New Moon wants to remind you that your thoughts are forever changing and you are not defined by them. They can be damaging or rejuvenating. I recently read something that really resonated “people do not cause you pain your thoughts do”.

Tonight as you meditate and set intentions for the this Moon Cycle, try to stay aware of your thoughts. The more positive and compassionate your thoughts are, the lighter and happier you will feel and project to the World.

Holy Community Gardening

We love the idea of community gardening! A few months ago, Hoss had the opportunity to donate one of our Wheel Hoes to the Community of Jesus – an ecumenical Christian community made up of monastic Brothers & Sisters, along with married couples, families and single adults located in Orleans, Massachusetts.  This community of 230 members, strong in their commitment to their faith and way of life, are also master gardeners!

Brother Andrew Smith is, as we have come to know, the chief gardener of the community gardening.  He oversees three main gardens plus two potato patches – in all, the Community has about 2/3 of an acre under cultivation.  We felt the members of this Community would greatly benefit from one of our Wheel Hoes – not only to take the strain out of gardening but to help the members really enjoy planting and harvesting their vegetables and fruits and get the most out of their crops.

At Hoss Tools, we are huge fans of sustainable gardening, and the Community of Jesus does an incredible job.  Oh, and we have to mention the fact that the Community also has cows, chickens and goats!  A true working farm with both plants and animals  – coming together to provide for community members.

Apartment Composting

When I was growing up, my family compost pile was a mound of stinking black earth decorated with vegetable peelings, nutshells, and denuded, forgotten apple cores. Teeming with worms and other wriggling digesters, the pile took six months or more to transform our jettisoned detritus into the fragrant loam my mother would later scatter at the base of her peonies.

The pile was not something that could ever work in an apartment.

But not all composts are created equally, and if you have ever rejected composting because of a less-than-spacious abode, think again. Today’s composters are streamlined and odor-free, offering options to accommodate even the smallest of apartments. Is it time for you to get on the composting bandwagon?

The Benefits of Composting

While you may not have peonies demanding a steady diet of nutrient-rich fertilizer, composting has other benefits. Not only can apartment dwellers use that black gold to feed house plants and patio containers, you can also reduce household waste and save yourself a trip to the dumpster.

Food scraps
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, food is the biggest ingredient in American trash. Currently more than 35% of the average garbage can is filled with kitchen scraps—scraps that could be diverted from the landfill altogether.

And diverting those scraps is important. When tossed into landfills, organic waste generates methane gas, something that doesn’t happen when you compost. Methane is a harmful greenhouse gas that increases the rate of global climate change. In fact, municipalities like Seattle, San Franciso, and New York City operate curbside collection and composting programs and get a carbon credit for their efforts. Despite this, about 95% of food scraps in the US are still thrown away.

To help reduce emissions and divert your share of organic waste, apartment composting is the answer. Luckily, there are several great ways to compost in an apartment. The type you choose will depend on your situation.

Superior Cannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil

What is Hemp oil?

Superior is the result of a collaborative effort to develop a novel, 10x bio-availability optimized hemp oil extract using exclusively natural, plant-based ingredients in a complete botanical formulation.

Balance In A Bottle

Our Superior formula:

  • Balances the Nervous System
  • Balances the Musculo-Skeletal System
  • Promotes Mental Clarity, Focus & Memory
  • Supports Calm & Relaxation
  • Supports Healthy Immune & Stress Response
  • Supports Healthy Inflammatory Response
  • Provides Anti-Oxidant Support
  • Supports Healthy Energy & Stamina

HoneyColony Superior CBD Hemp Oil

Cannabidiol is extracted from the hemp plant and has no euphoric properties whatsoever. This formulation offers all the health benefits of hemp oil without the feeling of being “high.”

Superior hemp oil nourishes the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. A decrease in the functioning of the ECS can lead to chemical imbalances throughout the whole body. Our hemp oil acts on the ECS to increase its function and promote total body health.

In addition to faster absorption, our special formulation synergizes hemp oil with other medicinal herbs used in ancient medicine. This is a potent concentration inside of a small travel size bottle.

No other product in the marketplace uses this finely extracted, optimized cannabinoid matrix, using production that meet high end specifications, using only natural ingredients in its processing. Integrity is key.

Key Ingredients & Why Superior Hemp Oil Works:

Western medicine likes to synthesize and compartmentalize compounds. But the phyto-nutrients contained in whole plants are complex and complete. While identifying active principles is a useful research tool, evidence supports the superior therapeutic value of the naturally-occurring synergistic chemistry of the whole plant. In other words, whole plants or mixtures of plants are more effecteive than than isolated compounds. It’s about treating your health as a whole.

With the assistance of HERBOLOGIE’s master formulator and a veritable  alchemical magician,  we have actively mixed, tested, and finally formulating a recipe that looks to traditional medicine such as the ancient Chinese and the bees  Superior Hemp Oil‘s profile aims to enhance, regulate and support a long healthy life.

1 solar power plant. 775,000 panels in the Chilean desert.

 

Still under construction, the Atacama 1 Concentrated Solar Power plant is a symbol of the shift from dirty fossil fuels to a cleaner, smarter way to generate electricity in Chile which is leading the charge for solar in Latin America thanks to its expanses of wilderness and some of the most intense sunlight on Earth.

Following the global climate change deal signed in Paris earlier this month, the $1.1bn project is a source of hope because it demonstrates how far renewable technology has come. But – amid reports of its Spanish owner Abengoa’s financial difficulties – it is also a reminder of how the energy transition is increasingly challenged more by financing uncertainties than engineering obstacles.

The main structure – which is already taller than London’s Gherkin or New York’s Trump Tower – is almost finished. The next big challenge will be to lift one of the heaviest slabs of steel ever made – the 2,000-tonne solar receiver – to the top with hydraulic jacks. This will be used to heat a pool of 50,000 tonnes of molten salt up to temperatures of 565C during the day so it can continue to drive turbines through the night. All that is needed after that is to polish the 10,600 heliostatic mirrors so that they can reflect sunlight up to the tower. The end result will be the dream of sustainable energy supporters – a solar facility that can provide baseload power generation of 110 megawatts (MW) for 24 hours a day.
