Holy Heirlooms!!!!

 

I am so blessed and grateful for my green thumb, my loving garden angels, and Mother Nature! What to do with these beauties; tomato salad perhaps!

 

Chopped tomatoes, chopped peppers, cucumber sliced or chopped, a slathering of olive oil, a Tbsp. of coconut or balsamic vingear, a squeeze or 2 of lemon juice, cracked pepper and pink salt, AND chopped, fresh basil. Toss and chill and ENJOY!!! ?

A FANTASTIC ARTICLE IN THE PITTSBURGH POST GAZETTE!

Featuring An Interview With Mandi! May 15, 2014

Ms. Babkes, 37, who is certified as a “health practitioner and healer” by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, said psychics have helped her to understand herself better.

With a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree in natural health from Clayton College in Alabama, she works with people who are “physically and emotionally sick,” using a holistic approach that combines talk therapy with nutrition to help people heal themselves. She sees the use of psychics and mediums as another way to improve herself.

What Is Still In Your Childs School Lunch?

Part 2: Four More Ways to Make a Change

First, let’s hear from Mandi Babkes, MNH, HHC, AADP, QRA with Holistic Health with Mandi:

“According to the school district in which this lunch was presented, ‘All menus exceed Federal guidelines Recommended Daily Allowances and are planned by a Registered Dietitian… all schools will have at a minimum of one fresh fruit and vegetable offering each day.’ Are these dietitians and school representatives seeing the same meal as we are in this photo?

Corn chips and saturated, fat-laden potatoes cannot be considered a fresh vegetable. And this orangish-red, Jell-o-ish substance (see actual Jell-o ingredient label with cautionary ingredients in red) is far from fresh fruit. The website Sugar Stacks is devoted to breaking down nutritional values and percentages of sugar in foods. Jell-o is actually loaded with calories and sugar.

The sandwich, which is quite difficult to even predict exactly what it consists of, is presented on a white, bleached flour bun which holds absolutely zero nutritional value, zero fiber and zero whole-grain goodness.
