Mamma Likes This Lesson on Love

By Glennon Doyle Melton at Momastery.com                               

The Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15

The other day when Mamma was shopping at her favorite organic market, she realized she had left her fruit and vegetable "Shoppers guide to pesticides" at home.  Thankfully it was easy for me to pull up the  listing on my iPhone and continue my shopping!  

 Did you know that the Environmental Working Group has a list for consumers to follow regarding pesticides in their produce ?   The list is called the "Dirty Dozen" and the "Clean 15".   Basically it's a helpful guide about which vegetables and fruits have the most pesticide exposure.  It's always good to eat fruits and vegetables, and this guide will help you to buy more organically.  

Mamma personally thinks eating seasonally is best.  If you are in need of a guideline, view what the Environmental Working Group suggests at http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/summary.php.  Let Mamma know what you think about pesticides in our fruits and vegetables!!

Mamma wants you to eat more healthfully!  

Healing Molluscum Warts

Healing is something that we will all need at some time in our lives.  Sometimes it is emotional healing and sometimes it is physical healing.  A few years ago Mamma's daughter had a suspicious looking outbreak on the back of her legs.  The outbreak got larger and after a trip to the pediatrician  she found out that her daughter had a case of Molluscum warts. 

 This was something new to Mamma.  Her doctor had told her that the warts had to "run their course" and there was no treatment for the outbreak. As the warts progressed up her daughters leg, they began to multiply on her stomach, up her arms and were traveling toward her daughters neck and face.  The warts also began to itch and would ooze an oil .  This was most likely the way the warts spread.
  
Mamma was at her " wits end " and school was about to begin .  Her daughter could not attend school with the outbreak the way it was progressing.  As a mother, it is so hard to see your child suffering and not knowing what to do to alleviate that suffering.  

Mamma researched many blogs and found that there  was a treatment for the condition by the name of ZymaDerm.  Although very skeptical, Mamma knew she had to do something and had very little time before school would begin.  So I ordered the ZymaDerm and within 2 weeks the warts had subsided enough that my daughter could go to school and not be be bothered by the appearance or the itching that came with the warts.  Within 6 weeks, the warts were gone with no scarring.  A few months later the warts came back, but with the ZymaDerm treatment they were "banished" once more.  ZymaDerm was a godsend for Mamma and her daughter. 

 I am so pleased that we can offer this wonderful product on our website. Find this on our shop for products page. For more medical information about Molluscum, check out the Centers for Disease Control Website at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/molluscum/faq/everyone.htm#whatis .  Mamma wants you to be healed!! 

Delicious Tortilla Soup!

Fall is in the air here...cooler days, the beginning of leaves changing on the trees, pumpkins on porches, and football season!  Mamma has one of her favorite soups simmering on the stove with the Kansas City Chiefs game getting ready to start.

This Tortilla Soup Recipe (from Stop and Smell the Rosemary) is a family favorite that Mamma has shared with many and kids and adults LOVE it!  It is easy to make and so delicious!  Mamma likes how comforting and good for you soup can be (you can decide which garnishes best meet your needs).  Try it and let Mamma know what you think!

TORTILLA SOUP

6 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 corn tortillas, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2  cup chopped cilantro
1 medium onion, chopped
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 bay leaves
6 cups chicken stock (Mamma prefers low salt organic)
1 teaspoon salt
4 cooked chicken breasts, shredded or cubed (Mamma has used a roasted  chicken from the deli when she is in a time crunch and shredded it)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (Mamma tends to leave this out for her kids, and adds Tobasco at the table)

Optional Garnishes:  Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, cubed avacado, sour cream, a few tortilla chips

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add tortilla, garlic, cilantro and onion.  Saute 2-3 minutes.   Stir in tomatoes.  Bring to a boil and add cumin, chili powder, bay leaves and chicken stock.  Return to a boil.  Reduce heat.  Add salt and cayenne. Simmer 30 minutes.  Remove the bay leaves and stir in the chicken.  Reheat for a few minutes.  Spoon into bowls and garnish with cheese, avacado, sour cream and tortilla chips.  

Happy Fall!






Take on the Day



“Finish each day and be done with it. 
You have done what you could. 

Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; 
forget them as soon as you can. 

Tomorrow is a new day; 
begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit 
to be encumbered with your old nonsense." 

~Ralph Waldo Emerson


'Loving Lemons!

Mamma grabbed a bag of organic lemons at the market a few weeks ago.  They were on a great sale and just looked so fresh, colorful, and fun.  Mamma figured that she would use them in recipes, for household cleaning, and they would look so pretty sitting in a bowl on her kitchen counter...form and function, the perfect marriage!

What Mamma wasn't planning on was how much she enjoyed having fresh squeezed lemon water over the next week.  Not only was the taste pleasing, but she could tell a difference in how she felt:  energized and even.  Mamma's skin also looked clearer, and fresher.  Could this be from simple lemon water?  Yes!  After doing some research, there is a plethora of information regarding the benefits of lemons and lemon water, specifically.  Digestive bonuses to immune boosting benefits are a few of the plusses credited to lemon water.   You can review a few articles here:  http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/lemon-aids-life 

Why not try this simple, healthy drink and let Mamma know what you think!

Cheers!
