Telba is a healthy and refreshingly creamy beverage. Be cautious of how much you drink, though, as it is a mild laxative.
1 c Flaxseed
6 c Water
1 to 2 T Honey
Heat a cast-iron skillet over low heat. Add flaxseed and dry roast, stirring for about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Place flaxseed in a spice grinder and grind to a powder.

Aloe vera has been adored for centuries as a remedy for skin infections and cuts. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, technological advancements have enabled the production of aloe vera products that aid in treatment of burns, constipation, diabetes, skin conditions and herpes. The plant’s products such as aloe vera juice contain a mixture of ingredients that can collectively curb other numerous health complications.
loe vera contains nine minerals — calcium, copper, chromium, selenium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, manganese and zinc. The minerals interact to boost enzyme metabolic pathways. An increased enzyme activity ensures detoxification of metabolic wastes with minerals such as zinc acting as antioxidants in your body’s cells.

(Reuters) – A quarter of all Russian men die before they reach their mid-fifties and their passion for alcohol – particularly vodka – is largely to blame, according to research published on Friday.
A study of more than 150,000 people found extraordinarily high premature death rates among male Russians, some of whom reported drinking three or more bottles a week of the potent clear spirit.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, deaths among heavy drinkers were mainly due to alcohol poisoning, accidents, violence and suicide, as well as diseases such as throat and liver cancer, tuberculosis, pneumonia, pancreatitis and liver disease. READ MORE

http://eugeenapatterson.com-I find that with this diabetes I can be disciplined most of the time except during the holiday season. Who in their right mind is not tempted by the scent of gooey desserts and those traditional dishes like mac & cheese and cornbread dressing? Well, I am tempted but can’t afford to give in to it with this diabetes.
Chef Harris kindly sent me some tips that I’m going to share with you and think you should share too. This is what she said:
- Use sweetener in your coffee and tea. Keep a tiny amount of a natural sweetener like agave nectar or honey in your pocketbook at all times for when you’re away from home.
- Don’t over indulge in starches. I know that’s easier said than done but take only a tablespoon of dressing, mac & cheese or mashed potatoes. Have a bit more of the green bean casserole instead or best of all, green beans without all of the extra stuff in the casserole.
- Have someone else fix your plate. This always works better than you fixing it. Tell them to give you only a tiny bit of everything. If there’s something there you know you shouldn’t have, be brave and tell them to skip it and give you a little extra of something safe and healthy.
