Healthy Cells, Healthy Immune System, Healthy Body

Our immune system was designed specifically to heal our bodies and keep them healthy. So why are so many failing these days?

There are many factors that cause our immune systems to function poorly - diet, lack of exercise, too much stress and how we handle it, pollutants and contaminants in the air and water, toxins in our food supply, body care and cleaning products among many other factors. But taking our health seriously doesn't have to be burdensome and confusing.

I don't know anyone who wants to be sick or die of disease but sadly that's what is happening to so many people. Death is a sure thing, but disease doesn't have to be.

If you're interested in strengthening your immune system allowing it to do its job, which is to heal your body, then go to Amazing Molecules . Find out how healthy cells make for a healthy body and then contact me!

Healthy Recipes

Sunflower Seed Brittle
Reposted from with some tweaking.  
Use organic ingredients for BEST results.    

2 cups raw shelled sunflower seeds
3 tablespoons honey, agave nectar, date syrup or a combination
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil (you can also use grape seed oil) 
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

Before you get started, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Heat honey/syrup/nectar on the stove until it melts/softens a bit. This should only take a minute or less.
2. Remove from heat and add the oil and salt. Mix well.
3. Add the sunflower seeds and mix until they all coated. 
4. Lay the sunflower seeds out as flat as possible on a cookie sheet line with unbleached parchment paper.
5. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes during which time you will need to mix every 5 minutes so it cooks evenly.  You’ll know it’s done when it starts to change color.  Just don’t let it burn.
6. Once it’s finished cooking, let them cool.  After a few minutes you can remove the parchment paper from the pan and cool directly on the rack.  When they're completely cool, break them apart like you would peanut brittle. 
7. Store in an airtight jar if they last that long!

Recipe can be doubled.

Note: To make them with granulated sweetener/sugar (SuCaNat, Coconut sugar) instead of honey or other sweeteners, mix 3 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons water, 1.5 tablespoons oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring them to a boil on the stove top until the syrup becomes golden. Mix with sunflower seeds, then continue from step 3. These will be lighter in color than ones made with honey or date syrup. (See picture at right for sugar roasted sunflower seeds.)
You can make these also with peanuts instead of sunflower seeds. Use raw, shelled peanuts and make exactly the same way. You just need to roast it for a little longer.
