:sunflower: About baobab powder, a nutrition supplement

Re: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B93GTP2/re ... k_detail_0
"50% more antioxidants than blueberries, pomegranate, goji berries, or acai.
Extremely high bioavailability so your body absorbs the antioxidant goodness"

Re: http://blog.naturespath.com/what-you-sh ... bab-powder
"You really only need two to three teaspoons per day to reap the benefits of this powerful supplement."

Re: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/306445.php
"Baobab is said to have 10 times the fiber of apples, six times the vitamin C of oranges, two times the antioxidants of acai berries, two times the calcium of milk, four times the potassium of bananas, and five times the magnesium of avocados.''

:idea: With its natural sweetness (low carbs) and nutrition, this powder seems a good fruit substitute for emergency preparedness. The sweetness also gives this powder sugar-substitute appeal (and with nutrition that is not present in sugar).

:sunny: A diabetes discovery journey (baobab powder) ...

Re: https://www.betternutrition.com/checkou ... h-benefits

"A British study, published in Nutrition Research, found that baobab fruit powder, mixed in water or baked into white bread, slowed the absorption of starchy food. This reduces spikes and crashes in blood sugar and energy. Researchers believe the fruit may block enzymes that break down starch and sugar, in addition to slowing absorption with its fiber content."

:idea: Try diced apple with baobab powder and cinnamon;
use as a topping for yogurt, oatmeal, or whatever ...
or cut larger slices of apple as snackin' fingers. :roll

Chocolate Cement

Post by Amigoo » Thu Nov 23, 2017 6:34 pm

Chocolate Cement

A non-candy mixture of black cumin seeds (nigella sativa) with dark chocolate
and orange flavoring. "Cement" refers to mixture's consistency before hardening
after refrigeration and hints that this is not candy :!: (chocolate medicine :?: )

:roll Ingredients:

two 3.5oz bars dark chocolate, melted (try 85% cacao)
1 cup black cumin seeds, room temperature
1 tsp organic orange oil (optional)

:arrow: Directions

Place plastic wrap on a small tray, about 10" x 12".

In a glass quart measuring cup, melt dark chocolate* and stir in black seeds then orange oil.

Spoon mixture onto plastic wrap and spread as desired, then cover with another layer of plastic wrap.

Refrigerate overnight, then cut into 1" squares. Keep refrigerated between servings.

* Slowly melt chocolate in the microwave on low power (or preheat oven to 350F degrees,
then turn off and place measuring cup inside - the measuring cup will be HOT!) ;)

:roll About chicken soup ...

Re: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/artic ... colds.html

"A study found that chicken soup could ease the symptoms of upper respiratory infections because it contains anti-inflammatory agents."

"Further research shows that the aroma, spices and heat from the soup can clear congestion brought on by the common cold."

:study: "The suspected benefits of chicken soup date back centuries ago when the Egyptian Jewish physician and philosopher, Moshe ben Maimon, recommended chicken soup for cold symptoms in his 12th century writings."

Spoonin' the soup over the preferred starch (cooked pasta, rice, potatoes, etc.) is best to maintain a clear broth
... and use fresh herbs as condiments for even greater nutrition! ;)

Spoonin' EVCO

Post by Amigoo » Sat Dec 02, 2017 5:53 pm

Spoonin' EVCO (Extra Virgin Coconut Oil)

For daily spoonin' of this necessary dietary fat*,
combine EVCO with liquid coconut oil (aka "MCT Oil")
and vanilla powder (adds flavor and sweetness):

2 cups EVCO, about 70F degrees
3/4 cup MCT oil, chilled
2 tsp vanilla powder

:arrow: Whisk to combine, then refrigerate.
Lick from a spoon or use as a spread/topping.
Daily serving size (IMO): 1 tbsp

Note: MCT oil is added to permit refrigeration
with less hardening of the coconut oil and MCT
provides more capric and caprylic acid.

* "American Heart Association recommends reducing saturated fat
to no more than 5 to 6 percent of total daily calories."

:sunflower: Speaking of beneficial dietary oil ...

Combine equal portions of high lignan flax seed oil
and lemon-flavored fish oil. Spoonable with good taste ;)
... and great emphasis on omega 3 :!:

Thanks Rod,
I'm in the process of catching up on all the good nutritional information you've shared on this thread since I've been away. Good stuff! :D
