Universal Healing Tao Center Complete Guide Urine Therapy Complete Guide Urine Therapy (Coen Van Der Kroon) Urine consists of 95% of water, 2.5% of urea and the remaining 2.5% is a mixture of minerals, salts, hormones and enzymes. Only urea , the substance after which urine is named, can be poisonous when present in the blood. However, this is irrelevant in the practice of drinking urine, as urine is not immediately put back in the bloodstream. In small amounts urea gets back into the body, it is purifying, and clears up excess mucus. One of the liver's most important functions is detoxification of the blood. The kidney's most important function consists of balancing out all elements in the blood. Human urine has strengthening and curative characteristics concerning many deficiencies. Drinking urine is a good alternative wherever water is scarce. Urine therapy consists of two parts: internal appication (drinking urine) and external application (massaging with urine). Another method, which I myself used, is to begin by fasting for a few days.

Giant Reeses Peanut Butter Cup I found Pimp That Snack last year and spent some time enjoying the pimps. Being inspired myself, I made a giant Reese's Peanut butter cup as a dessert for Thanksgiving 2006. I failed to document it, so this year I planned to repeat the process, with pictures. Looking at the other Reese's pimps, I found that most of them just used regular peanut butter when in fact the inside of a true cup was not peanut butter of the make-a-sandwich variety. I did some research on the net and found several good candidates for recipes, mostly from Buckeyes (chocolate dipped peanut butter balls). After a couple of experiments, which my friends enjoyed critiquing ("too runny," "pretty good," "does the burning stop?") Ingredients: Aluminum casserole pan $1.49 or use whatever seems right for you (it had the right shape). Total if you bought all items new: $19.91 Total for ingredients used: $ 9.33 You start by preparing the pan for the chocolate. The next night, I started with the bottom layer. Rate this pimp!

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice-Cream Recipes» Dairy Free Chocolate Ice-Cream We all want to be a little healthier. Let's be honest, you can't live on Slutty Brownies (and the world is a sadder place for it). However, the idea of snuggling down infront of a movie with a big bowl of celery sticks is deeply depressing. So, I give you, guilt free, fat free, dairy free ice cream! I like it soft, like Mr Whippy so I can eat it with a spoon, but you could easily freeze it a little longer and serve as scoops in crunchy waffle cones. You can make any flavour you like, I particularly like chocolate-maple, but I hear chocolate-peanut butter is fantastic! The magic ingredient is...... Pile them onto a plate and pop them in the freezer. Leave them for about 5hours, or over night if possible. Turn it on, baby! Keep blending until you have a smooth mush, like the one bellow. Now add 2-3 heaped teaspoons of cocoa powder and a swirl of maple syrup (Or whatever flavourings you fancy, be inventive!) There you have it!

Shepherds Pie Soup Finally I can give my mouth and stomach a break from all that spicy food last week! It's soup Monday yet again, and this week I have a nice and easy one for you guys. This was the most comforting soup I've had in awhile. I mean, what's not to like in this big bowl of potato, beef, corn, peas, and carrots? I believe it is supposed to be raining this afternoon here in Massachusetts, and I think this soup will be just the thing to help you through that rainy Monday funk. Potatoes and stock in a nice big pot. Meanwhile, brown the beef. After the beef, do the onion and carrot. When the potatoes are tender, process until smooth. Final veggies go right in. The perfect consistency. I love this soup. Make this tonight! 5 lb bag of potatoes, minus one large potato 2 boxes of chicken stock 1 lb ground beef 2 cups frozen corn 1 cup frozen peas 1 large onion 2 or 3 carrots half cup of grated cheese Chop the potatoes and put them into a pot with the stock.

Carrot Cake Ice Cream [Vegan] By Lauren Zembron, on August 12th, 2010 Yes, I admit I have a slight obsession with all things carrot cake-inspired. Case in point: Therefore, it goes without saying that the recipe for Carrot Cake Ice Cream in Wheeler Del Toro’s The Vegan Scoop caught my eye.

The alternations I made suited my tastes perfectly! This ice cream recipe is going straight into my cooking binder, which I fill only with recipes I know I will make over and over again. I think I need to get back into the kitchen. Carrot Cake Ice Cream [Vegan] adapted from The Vegan Scoop Ingredients: Directions: Combine brown sugar, maple syrup, and margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir until melted. *This post is an entry for Chocolate Covered Katie’s “Hug a Vegan Dessert” feature.

hugelkultur: the ultimate raised garden beds raised garden bed hugelkultur after one month raised garden bed hugelkultur after one year raised garden bed hugelkultur after two years raised garden bed hugelkultur after twenty years It's a german word and some people can say it all german-ish. I'm an american doofus, so I say "hoogle culture". I learned this high-falootin word at my permaculture training. Hugelkultur is nothing more than making raised garden beds filled with rotten wood. I do think there are some considerations to keep in mind. Another thing to keep in mind is that wood is high in carbon and will consume nitrogen to do the compost thing. Pine and fir will have some levels of tanins in them, but I'm guessing that most of that will be gone when the wood has been dead for a few years. In the drawings at right, the artist is trying to show that while the wood decomposes and shrinks, the leaves, duff and accumulating organic matter from above will take it's place.

Oreo Cookies-Recipe Oreo-Oreo Recipes-Cheese Cupcakes-Oreo Cheesecakes Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies? Not Me! Especially the double-stuffed Oreo cookie, it’s one of the best cookies for dunking into a cold glass of milk. I went out yesterday to do my weekly shop, came home, and before I was able to bring in the first grocery bag Matt was hunting for the cookies and cream ice cream. One of Matt’s favourite desserts of all time is cherry cheesecake and I thought to myself why not Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes, that should satisfy his craving. Plus these cheesecakes are super easy to prepare, everything comes together in one bowl and there’s no crushing chocolate wafers with a rolling pin, then melting butter, baking the crust first and then baking a second time when filled. Drop an Oreo cookie into each muffin tin, make filling, add chopped cookies, bake, and enjoy, how easy is that?
