Michelle,
   Here is a better explanation for the cream cheese recipe.  In a Teflon fry pan, saute with 2 Tbls. water:
    1 medium onion chopped fine
    About 3 bunches (5-6 cups) Spinach
    Cut the leaves in half
Simmer for about 4 minutes then add:
    1 small can mushrooms (opt)
    1 carton "Better than Cream Cheese"
     (purchased in a  Health Food store)
    1 Tbls. Veg. Chicken Seasoning
    2 Gluten steaks cut in cubes (opt)
Roll out bread dough (See Calzone recipe), about 8 x 15 Cut in six pieces, put filling in middle and close it....Bake at 350 about 25 minutes. Wonderful sandiches for a picnic, childrens lunches etc.

If you like cabbage you can also fill with cabbage, mashed potatoes, onions.

"It would be well for us to do less cooking and to eat more fruit in its natural state.  Let us teach the people to eat freely of the fresh grapes, apples, peaches, pears, berries, and all other kinds of fruit that can be obtained." 7T 134

FRUIT SALAD
   Grapes,  an apples,  a pear,
   1/2 of a pineapple chunks

What was that they said about Banana's

BANANA’S ARE GOOD FOR:

Doctors - Home Remedy

If you want a quick fix for flagging energy levels
there's no better snack
than a banana. Containing three natural sugars -
sucrose, fructose and
glucose - combined with fiber a banana gives an
instant, sustained and
substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that
just two bananas
provide enough energy for a strenuous 90 minute
workout. No wonder the
banana is the number one fruit with the world's
leading athletes. But
energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep
fit. It can also help
overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses
and conditions making
it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by
MIND amongst people
suffering from depression, many felt much better after
eating a banana. This
is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of
protein that the body
converts into serotonin known to make you relax,
improve your mood and
generally make you feel happier.

PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6
it contains regulates
blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the
production of hemoglobin in
the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is
extremely high in potassium
yet low in salt making it the perfect to beat blood
pressure. So much so,
the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed
the banana industry to
make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce
the risk of blood
pressure and stroke.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex)
school were helped
through their exams this year by eating bananas at
breakfast, break and
lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research
has shown that the
potassium packed fruit can assist learning by making
pupils more alert.

Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the
diet can help restore
normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem
without resorting to
laxatives.

Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a
hangover is to make a
banana milk shake, sweetened with honey. The banana
calms the stomach and,
with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood
sugar levels, while
the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heart burn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in
the body so if you
suffer from heart burn, try eating a banana for
soothing relief.

Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals
helps to keep blood
sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite
cream, try rubbing the
affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many
people find it
amazingly successful at reducing swelling and
irritation.

Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm
the nervous system.

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of
Psychology in Austria
found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort
food like chocolate and
crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients,
researchers found the most
obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs.
The report concluded
that, to avoid panic induced food cravings, we need to
control our blood
sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods
every two hours to keep
levels steady.

Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against
intestinal disorders
because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the
only raw fruit that
can be eaten without distress in over chronicler
cases. It also neutralizes
over acidity and reduces irritation by coating the
lining of the stomach.

Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas
as a 'cooling' fruit
that can lower both the physical and emotional
temperature of expectant
mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat
bananas to ensure
their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help
SAD sufferers because
they contain the natural mood enhancer, tryptophan.

Smoking: Bananas can also help people trying to give
up smoking. The B6, B12
they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium
found in them, help
the body recover from the effects of nicotine
withdrawal.

Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps
normalize the heartbeat,
sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's
water balance. When we
are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, there by
reducing our potassium
levels. These can be re-balanced with the help of a
high potassium banana
snack.

Strokes: According to research in 'The New England
Journal of Medicine'
eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the
risk of death by
strokes by as much as 40%!


Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that,
if you want to kill
off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it
on the wart,with the
yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with
a plaster or
surgical tape!

So you see a banana really is a natural remedy for
many ills. When you
compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein,
twice the
carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times
the vitamin A and
iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is
also rich in
potassium and is one of the best value foods around.

So maybe its time to change that well known phrase so
that we say, "A
Banana a day keeps the doctor away

Life is what we make of it...be happy, don't
worry....................

With Christian Love,
Marie

Thanks, Sister Ele for the reminder that the more we eat fruit as it comes off the tree the healthier we will be. While there are foods that need to be cooked, we need a large portion to be fruit as it comes off the tree.  See SDA Food Pyramid
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

I surely agree Richard, there is nothing better.  Especially  when you have your own trees and know they are not gassed, sprayed, waxed....what else do they do?  What I heard about strawberries, I am even afraid to eat them and they sure raise a lot of them here in Mexico. They are using something in the soil. Do you know? I soak mine for a few minutes in Preparation H. I hope that kills whatever is bad in them.

The Pyramids are getting better, but can't we make one up called "God's Pyramid" on our wonderful healthy lifestyle created by Him?

Soon it will be spring and God's orchards flowing with flowers will become delicious fruits.  Not only do we cultivate in our hearts the fruits of the Spirit, but let's make up some fruit ideas for our families. Does your child eat candy?  Change their habits to healthy candy as fruit leather, sugarless jams, fruit spreads.

You don't even have to wait for spring.  You can start today; practice making fruit leather with unsweetened canned fruits.
 
Line two 10x15 jelly-roll pans with wax- paper, tucking excess under pan. Blend the drained fruit until smooth. Spread evenly over bottom of pan.  Place in oven, set at 150.  My pilot is lit all the time on my gas oven so it is perfect for controling the heat.  Dry 8 to 10 hours or until leather is firm and dry to the touch.

Try bananas blended with 1 can of drained peaches, or apple and pear blended.

STRAWBERRY-PINEAPPLE SPREAD
4 cups fresh unsweetened strawberries
1 cup white grape juice, unsweetened
 or apple juice.
1-2 cups dried pineapple

Blend strawberries and juice.  While blending add dried pineapple a little at a time until it thickens enough to spread.
Serve on bread or rolls, or delicious as topping for deserts

This is one that really tastes good and is so healthy also.

TOFU WALNUT LOAF

1 C hot water          
1 lg. onlon, chopped
1 T Savorex or        
Bernard Jensen's  
Seasoning
1/4 C gluten flour*    
2 cloves garlic  
1 t salt
1 lb. soft tofu (I like firm better)
1 C dry bread crumbs  
1 t Italian seasoning
1 C rolled oats        
1 t paprika
1 C finely chopped walnuts or pecans

Dissolve Savorex in hot water. Mix remaining Ingredients together. Add Savorex broth and mix well (it will be stiff). Place in a sprayed loaf pan and bake at 375 F for 1 hour or until set in the middle. Will hold its shape if turned out on a platter. (I find that often it feels wet in the middle when done. It is still very good and drys out more. That is why firm tofu works better for me). Garnish with cherry tomatoes and parsley, if desired.
*1/2 C mung beans, soaked overnight and blended with just enough water to make a thick cream, may be substituted for gluten flour.

Thank you, ladies for such delicious and healthful recipies.

Why is it that we do not drink with our meals? The digestive juices are weakened so the danger is increased that food will ferment rather than be assimilated. Fermentation produces poisons that injure not only our body, but our mind.

Saliva is the first bodily chemical that begins the digestive process. If we are drinking with our meal not only is saliva weakened, but the production of saliva is reduced.

The very first process that begins digestion is chewing. If we drink with our meals then we may not be chewing our food as it ought to be. Some people tend to wash their food down with a drink rather than properly chewing it. Chewing increases saliva flow and mixes the saliva with the food. Both ways will ease the food down, but one will produce good blood the other will not.

A short tip for those looking for better health as they eat these delicious healthful meals.

Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

"And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely."  REv. 22:17

in juice.  Bring to boil and simmer in juice until tender. Blend all ingredients.  Serve on waffles, etc.

DATE BUTTER
   1 cup dates
   1/2 cup hot water
You can also add peanut butter

Blend till smooth and creamy:
  1 cup cashews
  2/3 cup water
  2 tsp vanilla
  3 Tbl honey
Then add 2 Tbl soy milk powder
Mix cream into the rice with some nuts and raisins.  It truly is a treat

PEACH SALAD
Combine cold cooked rice, sliced peaches

When the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and were speaking in many different languages, the miracle was attacked by the Jews by saying that they were drunk from drinking "new wine".  

How is it possible to get "drunk" from drinking new wine? I have pointed out that by improper eating habits food can ferment in the stomach. If we over eat there is danger that there will be fermentation. I believe this verse of Scripture while pointing to a  lie is an example of what could happen if a man would drink too much "new wine." Peter answered the charge by saying it was too early in the day to have drunk so much that a man would be drunk.

We want to study the human body and discover anything that will cause fermentation to begin. Over eating is one such thing.

Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

One of Ellen White's favorite meals was Vermicelli or Spaghetti cooked, and topped with plain fresh or canned tomatoes. Did you just make a "yuk" comment?   I did the same thing till I tried it.  

I think the Holy Spirit has somthing to do with it.  God is working on our hearts.

From the health Food store I get whole grain Spaghetti, and a can of  organic, whole tomatoes. Heat Tomatoes, and if need be, you can add onion, garlic, mushrooms, bell peppers,  but today I am having  just a can of whole tomatoes, heated, and whole wheat pasta with a salad from my garden.

Make our meals simple and you will slowly enjoy them more and more.

Jello is a treat all children love and in Mexico they all have birthday parties every year and in little cups are served  "pork" Jello.  Did you know the Jello you buy in the stored  are made with pigs and horses hoofs? I could not believe this but it is true. How sad we do not have Emes or Agar-Agar here in Mexico.  You will enjoy this:

MOLDED FRUIT SALAD

2 cups crushed pineapple
1/4 cup Emes Kosher-gel
1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup frozen peaches or blackberries
2 cups frozen strawberries
2 ripe bananas sliced

Drain crushed pineapple and dissolve
Emes gelatin in the juice.
Heat till it comes to a boil.
Remove from heat and add total ingredients.
Pour in pans or round rings and chill.
Refrigerate for a few hours till jelled.

Living here in Mexico, you kinda get use to the Mexican culture, and especially the food.  After all the recipes I have posted it is about time I give you some tasty, healthy foods from South-of-the-Border.  

How about some BURRITOS!

4 large whole wheat tortillas
2 cups black beans or pintos lightly mashed
1 large avacado lightly mashed
1/2 cup medium size pieces TVP (Textured Soy Protein) soaked in 1 cup seasoned hot water
1 1/2 cups cole slaw*  
1 mediun onion diced
2 Roma tomatoes chopped
Cilantro chopped to your taste
You may add bell peppers or mushrooms, or canned corn
*buy the packaged cole slaw with carrot shreds and mix with your tofu mayonaise.

Soak the TVP for about 30 minutes in hot water seasoned with chicken-like seasoning

Saute onions in 2 Tbls water till soft, add TVP and seasonings, and simmer until heated through (3 minutes)  Add Beans and tomatoes till warm. Keep warm.
Heat tortillas in dry teflon pan.

Put about 2/3 cup or more of the entire mixture in middle of tortilla, add cole slaw.  They are so good.
Serve on plate with plain or Spanish rice, and a dab of cole slaw.
