Rice Cleansing Diet

Auntie Nosebag
By Gloria Hedva Olson 28 March 2015

This diet will help you clean out your system after all the holiday food, parties and binges. Darling
The diet is based on rice, every three days adding a new food category, for instance, after the first three days of unsalted rice and clear pure lots of water, the addition of turmeric, cumin, parsley, fenugreek, spices, herbs, especially green, olive oil and lemon are all permissible after 3 days. So the “fast” is not so difficult.

This diet is contraindicated for people with constipation, diabetes (if out of control),
GREAT for high blood pressure, and GREAT for allergies and rhinitis.
1st 3 days: We eat only rice (brown recommended)., boiled in water, preferably with no salt, if necessary, then scant. Lemon is fine. Make sure to drink at least 8-10 glasses water daily.

After first 3 Days, may use spices such as turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, sweet paprika, muscat, ginger, also garlic and onion.

The 2nd 3 days: Add GREEN vegetables. Rice plus: cucumbers, lettuce, beet greens, baby leaves, spinach, parsley, coriander, fennel, celery, zucchini, green beans.

3rd Set of 3 days: Add ORANGE vegetables. Rice plus: Greens and Orange vegetables. Carrots, Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, Sweet Potato

4th set of three days: Add ROOT vegetables. Rice plus: Greens, Orange, Root vegetables (herbs and spices, olive oil, plenty of lemon juice before serving all along). Roots such as: Kohlrabi, Beets, Parsley root, Celery root.

5th set of three days: Rice, Green vegetables, Orange and Root vegetables, add Cereals such as: Buckwheat, Barley, Oatmeal, Millet (NOT Wheat).

6th set of three days: Rice plus LEGUMES/BEANS – All Kinds: Azouki, Choumus, Lentils, Mush, plus GREEN, ORANGE and ROOT Vegetables.

7th set of three days: Add, Seeds (Pumpkin, Sunflower, Sesame), Nuts (Almonds, Brazil, Cashews, Pecans, Walnuts), Fish 3X weekly.

Recipes and ideas for this 3-week, easy, Rice Cleansing Diet, to come (hopefully).

The Secret to Keeping Fruits and Vegetables Fresh Longer

Author: Seventh Generation 12 Feb 2014

When it comes to spending time together, fruits and vegetables are surprisingly human-like. It seems the real secret to keeping them at their freshest for as long as possible is simply knowing where they like to spend their time and which fruits and veggies get along best.

Fruits and vegetables give off an odorless, harmless and tasteless gas called ethylene after they’re picked. All fruits and vegetables produce it, but some foods produce it in greater quantities. When ethylene-producing foods are kept in close proximity with ethylene-sensitive foods, especially in a confined space (like a bag or drawer), the gas will speed up the ripening process of the other produce. Put spinach or kale in the same bin as peaches or apples, and the greens will turn yellow and limp in just a couple of days. [wpex Read more]

You can take advantage of this if you want to speed up the ripening process. Put an apple in a bag with an unripe avocado, or a peach in a closed paper bag with a ripe banana. But if you want your already-ripe foods to last longer, keep them away from ethylene-producing foods.

Store cold-sensitive fruits and veggies on the counter, not in the fridge since lose flavor and moisture at low temperatures. Once they’re fully ripe, you can refrigerate them to help them last, but for best flavor, return them to room temp. Never refrigerate potatoes, onions, winter squash or garlic. Keep them in a cool, dark, dry cabinet, and they can last up to a month or more. But separate them so their flavors and smells don’t migrate.

And remember: One bad apple really can spoil the whole bunch. Mold spreads rapidly and contaminates everything nearby, so toss any spoiled produce immediately. For longer life, keep your produce whole –don’t even rip the stem out of an apple until you eat it. We love how this quick-reference chart from sparkpeople.com puts it all in order.

NY Times Publishes Kraft Mac & Cheese Warning Label

What’s considered the most respected newspaper in the world today published the Kraft warning label that a Food Babe reader found in the UK on an imported US box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. I want to thank the NY Times for investigating and broadcasting this label to the world and millions of Americans in their newspaper and online for everyone to see. This is a huge victory in food awareness!

Given all the media coverage since March, it is now becoming blatantly apparent that there are serious concerns with the ingredients in Kraft Mac & Cheese. Everyone who reads the NY Times today will see the 2 warnings:

Warning #1: This Product May Cause Adverse Effects On Activity And Attention In Children (This warning label is required because The US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese has artificial food dyes yellow #5 and yellow #6 which are proven to be linked to hyperactivity in children.)

Warning #2: GMO Declaration: Made from genetically modified wheat. (May contain GMO) (This warning label is required because the US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese contains GMOs.)[wpex Read more]

Warning #1: This Product May Cause Adverse Effects On Activity And Attention In Children (This warning label is required because The US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese has artificial food dyes yellow #5 and yellow #6 which are proven to be linked to hyperactivity in children.)  Warning #2: GMO Declaration: Made from genetically modified wheat. (May contain GMO) (This warning label is required because the US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese contains GMOs.)

Warning #1: This Product May Cause Adverse Effects On Activity And Attention In Children (This warning label is required because The US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese has artificial food dyes yellow #5 and yellow #6 which are proven to be linked to hyperactivity in children.)
Warning #2: GMO Declaration: Made from genetically modified wheat. (May contain GMO) (This warning label is required because the US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese contains GMOs.)

There was quite a bit of speculation about this label last week. Many people on the internet questioned if it was real and where it came from. According to the report in the NY Times, in video evidence I posted, and in two other videos here and here, we can now conclude the following:

The NY Times verified that this is in fact a real label on US Kraft Mac & Cheese sold in the UK.

We know that Kraft does not label, distribute or export the US version of Mac & Cheese officially. (To echo my quote in The NY Times, I find it extremely bizarre that Kraft had no knowledge of their products being sold and widely available in one of the largest retailers in the world (Tesco) and are trying to pass this off as a black market supply.)

Kraft has confirmed they do not use GMO wheat. (However, no one to my knowledge has tested the product to verify this 100%, which is important considering the contamination of GMO wheat in Oregon.)

Kraft customer service confirmed use of other GMOs in their products (see video evidence here).

Given all the public statements that Kraft has made to the media about this label so far – they have not attempted to refute one important fact – Their product “May Cause Adverse Effects On Activity And Attention In Children.” This is truth they can’t deny.

Tesco who sells the US version of Kraft Mac & Cheese in their “World Foods” section confirmed the label is placed on by the distributor – Innovative Bites.

The case is still not solved. THERE IS STILL A MAJOR QUESTION UNANSWERED. No one has been able to get in touch with distributor Innovative Bites (including me) to find out why they used the words “made with genetically modified wheat” on the label.

Lynne Galia, the spokeswoman I met at Kraft headquarters when I delivered thousands of signatures, has still not responded to me directly. She will not answer my emails or my phone calls. She will gladly talk to the NY Times and other news agencies, but not to me or the other 290,000 people I represent who signed a petition asking Kraft to remove artificial food dyes. I find it bizarre that Kraft wouldn’t genuinely want to answer basic questions about their product – especially after I posted this concerning information that could have health implications to millions of people and children.

How can we continue to trust a company like Kraft that is more concerned about making greedy business decisions to keep their market share and paying their executives millions of more dollars year after year, while neglecting enormous public outcry regarding their flagship product?

How can we continue to trust a company that continues to not take responsibility for their product containing petroleum based dyes and GMOs?

How can we continue to trust an American company that reformulates their products without harmful ingredients to our friends overseas but not to us?

Kraft Mac and cheese ingredients

I want to leave you with a clarification note I received from Flo (who is definitely a hero for finding this label!) She would like to share her unedited thoughts about Kraft Mac & Cheese here:

I’ve been eating Kraft Macaroni and Cheese for a long time now and have grown to enjoy the product, much like many others I’m sure. However with these recent discoveries of the yellow dyes and their effects as well as the GM wheat and GMOs, I’ve become very concerned. I have continued to eat Kraft macaroni and cheese in moderation knowing the effects it may have, however I’m certainly considering stopping if the ingredients aren’t changed. I’m worried about the long term effects it may have and really hope that Kraft can find a way to alter the ingredients, making them safer and healthier, without it having an effect on the taste of the product. Mainly, I’m concerned that children around the world may be eating this without knowing the effects it could have. Also, I would like to thank the New York Times for publishing the photo and not dismissing it as fake. ~ Flo Wrightson Cross

How to Cook a Frozen Fish that’s too big Darling

by Auntie Nosebag

First wash the fish and then try to put the fish in the middle, face down and then face up – tail down. Eventually it defrosted and bent and then when soft I cut the head and tail off and was able to continue cooking it in small amount of oil with paprika, cumin, caraway seeds and a splash of tomato paste in the pot. It cooked and tasted great, I also placed gefilta fish in the extra sauce and that came out good as well. Better than just out of the jar.

Why does the US government need 30,000 Guillotines and over 600 Million rounds of hollow point bullets?

If you don’t have one of these, try…

כ״ז אדר א’ ה׳ תשע״א – Thursday 3 March 2011

Auntie Nosebag and-Christian-Dior

Auntie Nosebag’s English Crumpets:

Darlings, my therapist suggested toning things down so I’ve decided to have a new look as well. In order to help improve my popularity I’ve decided to purchase a new Christian Dior outfit and perfume! Don’t you just love it! Crumpets are so British, and the world seems to be watching England lately, and what’s tea time without English Crumpets, so here they are.

ENGLISH CRUMPETS Recipe

Ingredients:
3 T. warm water
1 pkg. yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 C. milk
4 T. butter, divided
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. flour
1 egg
Directions:

Combine water, yeast and sugar. Let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes. Heat milk, 1 tablespoon of the butter and salt in a saucepan over low heat just until warm. Add to yeast mixture. Add 1 cup flour to yeast mixture and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Beat in egg. Add remaining flour and beat until smooth. Cover batter with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Stir down batter and let rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat. Skim off foam and discard milky solids from bottom of saucepan. Brush bottom of a skillet with melted butter. Brush insides of four crumpet rings or 3-inch round cookie cutters with butter and place rings in skillet. Heat skillet over medium heat. Spoon about 2 tablespoons batter into each ring. Cook until batter begins to bubble on top and is lightly browned on bottom, about 2 minutes. Remove rings. Turn English Crumpets over. Cook until lightly browned on bottom and done in centers. Can be served warm or split and toasted before serving.

John Galliano, fashion designer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaIn October 1996, LVMH moved Galliano to Christian Dior, replacing Italian designer Gianfranco Ferré.

In 2010, Galliano identified his love of theatre and femininity as central to his creations; he said “my role is to seduce”, and credited Standard Oil heiress Millicent Rogers as an influence.
Anti-Semitic remarks and repercussions

On 25 February 2011, Dior announced that it had suspended Galliano following his arrest over an alleged anti-Semitic tirade in a Paris bar. The same day, Paris-based citizen journalism site Citizenside received video of Galliano on a similar rant in the same bar the previous December. In the video a drunk Galliano, seated at table à L’Absinthe, insults a group of Italian women and declares “I love Hitler… People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers would all be fucking gassed.” This incident happened just before Paris Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2011-12.

Natalie Portman, an Israeli-American actress, whose great-grandparents died at Auschwitz, had an endorsement contract with Dior for its Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. In a statement, she expressed “disgust” at Galliano’s anti-semitic comments.Portman said: “I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today…I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.” Not everyone in the fashion industry shared Portman’s disgust. Stylist and costume designer Patricia Field defended Galliano by sending an email to 500 friends, blogs and media. She dismissed Galliano’s rants as “theatre.” Later, in a phone interview with Women’s Wear Daily, she described Galliano’s videotaped behaviour as “farce” and said she was bewildered that people in the fashion community have not recognised it as such. “It’s theatre … It’s farce. But people in fashion don’t recognise the farce in it. All of a sudden they don’t know him. But it’s OK when it’s Mel Brooks’s The Producers singing ‘Springtime for Hitler’”, Field added. Another model for Dior, French actress Eva Green, said of the incident: “Sometimes, you can make mistakes. I don’t think he’s anti-semitic. I’m Jewish. I don’t think he has anything against the Jews. I think it’s more that he was probably a bit drunk.”]

On 1 March 2011, Dior announced that it had begun procedures of dismissal for Galliano, with Dior’s chief executive Sidney Toledano stating, “I very firmly condemn what was said by John Galliano”. Galliano denied the allegations through his attorney, and launched a defamation lawsuit against the couple accusing him of antisemitism. Various rumours have also surfaced stating that he was set up. “From the very first day of Fashion Week, many editors have been saying that Dior wanted to get rid of him and that a plot like this would save it from having to pay him a reported £17 million”, said Marcellous L. Jones, editor-in-chief of fashion web magazine TheFashionInsider.com. Dior announced it will continue to support the Galliano brand financially due to license despite his previous scandal involving alleged anti-semitic remarks.
Criminal charges

On 8 September 2011, he was found guilty of making anti-Semitic remarks. John Galliano has been sentenced to pay a total of €6,000 (US$8,400) in suspended fines after a French court found him guilty of giving public insults on account of race.
