Homemade Baked Beans….

After discovering they used this BPA stuff in the lining of tin cans and not being able to find the baked beans we like, it became a case of, “Stuff it then, I’ll make them myself!“….

So I did….

Baked Beans....

I found a recipe for some basic bog standard baked beans and after a few trial and error runs, the recipe never being perfect anyway, I think I may have cracked it. They’re easy to do, you just throw all the ingredients in the pot and boil ’em up then leave to simmer for a few hours. The longer it seems the better, after this last batch. What’s in there? Chopped tomatoes, the beans (I used navy beans here, I think you’re supposed to use haricot ones which are a little softer, but leave to boil and they seem to be fine), chilli powder, cayenne powder, water, some golden syrup, pepper and garlic. If you want the full recipe, let me know. I’ve got a few variations which I might try next.

The missus likes ’em so much, she took a bowl of them for her lunch the following day. I had mine with cheese on toast, the bread, again home made, after a tip I got from a reader about using the 4 hour bake. Thanks, Karen!…

The Beautiful Truth Trailers….

OK then, done a bit of digging, found these….

I already knew some of this stuff, maybe you didn’t….

I’ve avoided MSG for a long time now. How? I read the label, if it’s in there, I don’t buy it. You might want to start thinking about it too. Get yourself educated. Don’t take my word for it, don’t take anyone’s word for it. Go find out. Switch your brain on, especially if you have kids…. like the trailer says, the manufacturers are hoping that you are “too busy, or too lazy, or too stupid.” Which one are you?

You need to look out for your kids mate, no one else is going to.

Take care,

The Beautiful Truth….

Just reading about some upcoming films and came across this one. Being an organic enthusiast, I was intrigued…

The Beautiful Truth (http://www.thebeautifultruthmovie.com)

Garrett is a 15-year old boy living in the Alaskan wilderness with a menagerie of orphaned animals. Growing up close with nature has given him a deep understanding of nutritional needs required by diet sensitive animals on the reserve. Unfortunately, the untimely and tragic death of his mother propelled him into a downward spiral and he risked flunking out of school. This led to his father’s decision to home-school Garrett. His first assignment was to study a controversial book written by Dr. Max Gerson.

Written over 50 years ago, Dr. Gerson found that diet could, and did, cure cancer. Controversial at the time (and even today), Garrett took on the challenge of researching this amazing therapy, which drew the interest of his neighbors in the small Alaskan community.

With the help of Dr. Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte Gerson, and grandson, Howard Strauss, they gave him the ammunition needed to go in search for the truth – a truth that would affect not only him, but his entire Alaskan village – all of whom wanted to know if these claims were true.

After a number of cancer patients, who were diagnosed as terminal, shared their stories and their medical records with Garrett, it became abundantly clear that, contrary to the disinformation campaign spear-headed by the multi-billion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, a cure for virtually all cancers and chronic diseases does exist – and has existed for over 80 years!

Garrett’s mission now is to tell the world.

Let me know if you see the film, I’m curious to know more. Being that we live in the “sticks” here in the Okanagan, I would imagine it’ll play somewhere. I’ve just got to find the place….
