Seed and Nut Butter and Milks 

Brought to by: Melody Ann’s 

Bernard Jensen, Ph.D., N.D. states from the book "The Chemistry of Man" Second Edition; People do not chew seed and nut long enough or well enough for proper digestion and assimilation and this is why people should make Seed and Nut Butters.  Here is how he would do a few of them —

To make the seed and nut butters simply by putting them through a Champion Juicer, available at many health and natural food stores. 

Sesame Seed Milk – ¼ cup sesame seeds to 2 cups of water, raw milk or goat milk.  Place in blender and blend 1-1/2 minutes.  Strain through fine wire strainer or 2-4 layers of cheesecloth.  This is to remove the hulls.  Add 1 tablespoon carob powder and 6-8 dates.  For flavor and added nutritional value, any one of the following may be added to this drink: banana, stewed raisins, apple or cherry concentrate, date powder or grape sugar.  Your own imagination or taste may dictate other combinations of fruits or juices.  Whenever adding anything, run in blender again to mix.  This milk may also be used as the basis for salad dressings.

Dr. Jensen believes that sesame seed milk is one of our best drinks.  It is a wonderful drink for gaining weight, for lubricating the intestinal tract, and its nutritional value is beyond compare, as it is high in protein and minerals.  This is the seed used in the making of Tahini, a sesame seed oil dressing.Other uses for sesame seeds: Salad dressing, added to vegetable broth, added to fruits, mixed with nut butter of any kind, for after-school snacks; use on cereals for breakfast, add to whey drinks to adjust intestinal sluggishness, twice daily with banana to gain weight; add supplements such as flaxseed meal or rice polishing.

Almond Nut Milk – Use blanched or unblanched almonds.  Other nuts may be used also.  Soak nuts overnight in apple or pineapple juice or honey water.  This softens the nut meats.  Then put 3 ounces of soaked nuts in 5 ounces of water and blend for 2 to 2 ½ minutes in the liquefier. Flavor with honey, any kind of fruit, concentrates of apple or cherry juices, strawberry juice, carob powder, dates or bananas,.  This can also be used with any of the vegetable juices.

Almond nut milk can be used with soups and vegetarian roasts as a flavoring.  Use over cereals, too.  Almond milk makes a very alkaline drink, high in protein, easy to assimilate.

Pumpkin Seed or Sunflower Seed Milk — The same principle as is used for making nut milks can be employed to make sunflower seed milk; i.e., soaking overnight, liquefying and flavoring with fruits and juices.  Use in the diet the same way as the almond nut milk.  It is best to use whole sunflower seeds and blend them yourself. However, if you do not have a Liquefier, the sunflower seed meal can be used.  Add seeds or nuts. NO Peanuts!

Soy Milk – Soy milk powder is found universally in health food stores.

Add 4 tablespoons soy milk powder to one pint of water.  Sweeten with raw sugar, honey or molasses, and add a pinch of vegetable salt. For flavor, you can add any kind of fruit, apple or cherry concentrate, carob powder, dates and bananas.  You can add any other natural sweetener.

Keep in refrigerator.  Use this milk in any recipe as you would regular cow’s milk.  It closely resembles the taste and composition of cow’s milk and will sour just as quickly.

Therefore, it should not be made in too large quantities or too far ahead of time.

1/4 cup virgin olive oil
1/8 cup whole toasted almonds
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves, loosely packed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoons olive oil
1 cup fennel root, diced
1 medium red bell pepper, roasted, diced
salt and black pepper

Place the first five ingredients in a food processor and puree. Sauté the fennel root in the tablespoon of olive oil until slightly golden. Cool and add to the processor. Puree again.

Transfer puree to a bowl and stir in the red bell pepper. Add salt and pepper to taste.

This is savory treat when spread on focaccia or bruschetta, either by itself or with the addition of creamy goat cheese. Or try it as a quick and satisfying starter when tossed with hot pasta.

August's 2010 Health talk Is.........

Today we will talk about feeling pain from the “outside coming in”. WELL… that is what it means to be an empath on the receiving end.  No more, no less! What to do is quite simple, but can be difficult to remember in the heat of the moment. Here are some things you can do that will be helpful. 

1.  Create a pink bubble around yourself and feel unconditional love. (Sometimes a lot easier said than done) 

2.  Create a pink bubble around the pain to protect yourself, say "No thanks!”. 

3.  Send Reiki to the pain, and release the energy from it to be recycled by the universe. 

4.  Now here what’s work for me personally: 

a.      Acknowledge the pain. 
b.     Find out where it is coming from.  This can be overwhelming when you're out
               in public (at Wal-Mart, etc).

c.       Ask mentally or out loud if you can be of assistance. Wait for the “yes” or “no”
               and respect that.
If you get no answer, follow your gut instincts.

If you get a yes then Reiki the person, animal, or plant.

If you get a no focus on unconditional love, and bless this person, animal, or
                       plant and release them (cut the cord).

d.      Now Reiki yourself and release all pain. It really is very quick, because it is no
              more than a 1, 2, 3 thought. 

5.  Be aware, it just might be mixed up with your own pain, and this is why it is very important to Reiki yourself as well.  It can be very difficult to determine what pain is coming from outside and what pain is coming from inside.  Even though the pain feels as if it is coming from outside, it doesn’t always mean it is coming from something or someone else.  We store our pain and past thoughts in our “Auric field”. Sometimes something or someone may trigger it. Then we will receive it and have to deal with the thought that was stored in the aura.  

6.  Just remember the rule of thought – "Keep it simple"... It is far too easy to take on everybody else's thoughts of pain and loss as "our own”, because for empaths it often does feel so much like our own. Taking on the painful thoughts of loved ones can become all consuming, because due to the entwined nature of our relationship, it often feels as if the pain is our own. Remember the cup is half full, so step up to the pump and fill it up! Reiki on! 

7.  In today's world, people do not take responsibility for they're just thoughts, because after all their just thoughts!  How can that harm anyone? Well they can, if we allow them to, and most people do. Just say “Thank you for sharing, but no thanks".  You have to be firm, because so many people do not respect each other or anything else. Remember the key word is “allowed”. Yes, you are giving yourself permission when you allow yourself to be hurt by their thoughts! And yes, you may become angry or hurt by their thoughts. So now, who is in the wrong for being angry?  Who now has taken responsibility for someone else’s thoughts? I am usually willing to help them heal themselves, depending of course on the person and the thoughts that are coming from that person, but I will not let their thoughts bring harm or pain to me, (there are a lot of bad people out there).

Yes, I know there are people who believe their thoughts have no impact on others, because after all no “physical” action was taken.  Bet let me tell you that as an empath I know that thoughts can cause pain, harm, and even death.  I also know that there are a lot of good people out there who just need to be open to understanding that “thoughtsi are things” and this would stop.  I have the utmost respect for the individual that understands this and takes responsibility for how their thoughts can affect others!  I take my hat off to those respectful individuals!  Think about it, what is Reiki? It is “thoughts” of energy being moved into healing!  This is taking responsibility for one’s own thoughts.  It is also these same respectful individuals that send Prayers, Energy, Positive Thoughts, Hope, or even crosses their fingers, etc. for the benefit of others.  

9.   As individual we have the power to literally think our way into whatever we need to do.  Yes, “We” have to give the body “building blocks” for healing sickness, injures and pain. But without “thought” behind the action there is no way the body is going to follow. This is also true for the “intellectual thought; it also must have the action (of the body) to back it up!

“We” also have to give freely to our own “Mind”, “Body”, the “Intellectual thought” and the Body “Building Blocks” to heal and restore balanced (wholeness) within ourselves.

I hope you find this helpful, 

Love and Light Mel
