The Lemon-Garlic Mixture Recipe that Chris Wark (Chris Beat Cancer) Recommends


My husband and I are both over 70, and while we have the odd age-expected ache or pain or fallen hair or swollen ankles or whatever, we have avoided many of the BIG Diseases: Heart Disease, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Cancer-- but we have had family with these diseases and there is a good chance that we will have something like this hit at some time.  That is the way of the world these days, is it not?

So, to be proactive and preventative, we believe that "Food is Our Medicine" and we adhere to a Whole Food/Plant-Based way of eating as much as possible.  We also watch a lot of those health seminars that mesh with our way of thinking that plants/herbs are the answer-- or at least our first rule of order when we feel ill.  We loved the Chris Beat Cancer series because, well, who wouldn't?  Chris is a charming young man with a friendly, compassionate mission to help others learn about how they too can beat cancer without (or only as a sideline) chemo or radiation.

Recently he talked about a lemon-garlic mixture that worked for one of his clients.  The friend took this mix every day for about 14 months-- worked up to taking 3 Tablespoons of the mix over the course of a day-- and at the end of the 14 months: NO TUMORS!

Well, we thought, if it is that powerful at killing tumors, it is certainly going to be powerful in preventing them in the first place?


 

We are not doctors or scientists of any certification, but it seemed logical to us that this mix would be something we could happily build into our regular regimen every morning.

At first we tried to take it 'straight' on an empty stomach-- but just one teaspoon full of the mooshy sour-bitter liquid made me feel like I was going to have a heart attack.  I'm not kidding.

So, because we are allowing ourselves some licence since we don't actually have tumors (that we know of) and decided that we would put the puree into our smoothies.  That has worked just great for us.  The lemony-garlic flavour really enhances the other flavours in a vital way, as strange as it might sound to have garlic in a Green Smoothie.

THE BACK STORY ABOUT LEMONS AND GARLIC

Okay, this is the worst possible pseudo-junk-science explanation you will ever get, but let's get on with the recipe okay?  You can look up the synergistic qualities of Lemons and Garlic elsewhere on the web.  I am just going to say that each of them-- the perky little citrus Lemon and the bold little garlic crowns-- pack a lot of antibioticphytonutrient punch.

Garlic contains the strong organosulphur compounds called Allcin (yes, sounds like the girl's name).  In a clinical trial, extracted allicin (i.e., the amount you would find in about 20 cloves of garlic) was shown to prevent the common cold.

The Lemon  is a powerhouse.  Vitamin C, fiber and various phytonutrients-- principally, Limonene, in the skin-- make for a fortress against some forms of Heart Disease, Kidney Stones, Anemia, Obesity and some of the compounds in lemons have been shown to "... prevent... malignant tumors from developing in the tongues, lungs and colons of rodents".

So, yes, let's try this out.  If you have concerns, please do your due-diligence and speak to your trusted health provider.

INGREDIENTS

*3 healthy, organic Lemons (small)

*6 Garlic crowns or however you think equal the weight of 3 lemons (you can weigh each).  The ideal is to have them be the same weight.

*Apple Cider Vinegar (doesn't need to be the expensive Organic brand-- this is for washing)

PREPARATION AND METHOD

1.  Immerse the lemons in water to cover, and add about 1/4 C. of Apple Cider Vinegar and put aside for the time that you will spend preparing the Garlic.



2.  Smash the garlic to make the peel go quickly. Yes it seems like a violent idea, but it really works to process the garlic quickly.  Then peel.  See the video below to see how chefs do it.

3. Cut up the clean lemons into 1/4s or 1/8s.  Be sure to leave the skin on, but get rid of seeds.  They might be okay to consume, but they are SOOO bitter.

4. Put Lemons and Garlic in a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  You may need to add a little filtered water if your lemon is not very juicy.

5. Spoon the creamy mix into an ice cube tray.  Freeze.  Put into a medium size baggy and use one a day in your smoothie.  Or, you can just put the mix into a jar with a lid in the fridge and use a teaspoon per person each day.

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
