Let’s Make Some Avocado Dip!

2009 March 11

Ok, so I’ve been visiting with alot of friends and associates recently and have been watching how everyone is eating.

To many people are relying on fast food, chain restaurant food, frozen, microwaveable, processed junk food. And…

I can’t take it anymore!

What I’ve realized is that we are in need of some basic food preparation skills.

So here is what I’ve been up to…

I have been recording a video cookbook of healthy recipe’s that are quick and easy to make.  There are a few that take a bit longer to make for those that are actually inclined to prepare some meals in your home.

It will be available shortly, a few more recordings to go, and yummy! Everyone involved has been enjoying some tasty treats.

So let’s get on with the first one that I recorded for this project…

Avocado – Builds the blood, harmonizes the liver, lubricates the lungs and intestines. A natural source of lecithin, a brain food containing more than 80% of its calories from easily digested fat, primarily in the form of polyunsaturated oils. Rich in copper and potassium which aids in red blood cell formation. A nutritious protein source often recommended for nursing mothers.

Lemon & Lime – A natural astringent, antiseptic, anti-microbial that promotes weight loss, cleanses the blood, treats high blood pressure, poor circulating blood and weak blood vessels, destroys putrefactive bacteria in the intestines and mouth, is mucus resolving for dysentery, colds, flu, hacking cough, and parasite infestation. Benefits the liver encouraging the formation of bile, improving absorption of minerals.

Celery – Improves digestion, purifies the blood, helps to control appetite, promotes sweating, helps to clear digestive fermentation, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, and nerve inflammation. Useful for burning urine, blood in urine, acne, and canker sores. A natural diuretic, high in potassium, celery juice combined with lemon juice is a remedy for the common cold, headaches, and a great workout recovery drink. Very high in silicon that helps renew joints, bones, arteries and all connective tissues. Though a vegetable celery combines well with fruit.

Onion – Resolve stagnant blood, reducing clotting. Expels coldness, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, cleanses the arteries and retards growth of viruses, yeasts, ferments, and other pathogenic organisms.

Eastern tradition believes if eaten too often, they can foster excessive emotional desires.
