This is mind blowing...

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Fold a NEW $20 bill in half...

Fold again, taking care to fold it exactly as below

Fold the other end, exactly as before

Now, simply turn it over...

What a coincidence! A simple geometric fold creates a catastrophic premonition printed on all $20 bills!!!


As if that wasn't enough...
Here is what you've seen...

Firstly The Pentagon on fire...

Then The Twin Towers..

...And now .. look at this!

Disaster (Pentagon)
Disaster ( Twin Towers )
Disaster (Osama)???

It gets even better ... 9 + 11 = ($)20!

Creepy huh?

PS: I did not test this out myself with a $20 bill. I got this in an email.

I am sick today with that stomach virus going around. It hit me halfway through Water Aerobics class and had to run to the bathroom if you know what I mean. Shouldn't have any problem what so ever eating 100% Raw today. All I want I seem to be doing is drinking water. I did make my Raw Creamy Cucumber Soup but then the gurgling really started.

Went to the Doctor's today to take a memory test.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Pretty scary but I think I may have the onset of Alzheimer’s. I learned of a study they are conducting in NJ and today I got tested. My results were below average for my age which is 55. emoticon

I am supposed to receive a phone call tomorrow to let me know if I will be selected to participate in the study. I told the Doctor the thing that was upsetting me the most is that sometimes it is as if I am stuttering trying to remember the word I want to use. It happens quite frequently. The Doctor said that it was indeed a precursor for Alzheimer's especially at my age. emoticon

I am not going to dwell on it tonight. I am going to try to put it out of my head, no pun intended till I hear from them tomorrow.

    I think it's prolonged stress that may be causing it. You've had a rough go lately, with one thing after another. Over time, these stressors do some serious damage to the body, including the ole memory.

Find something that you enjoy doing and do often, then repeat!

Cabbage is so cheap right now , I am taking advantage of that, and I am loving it!

Monday, March 14, 2011

You can eat cabbage raw, in a salad, or cooked in so many different ways. Cabbage is packed with vitamin C, E, A, B, magnesium, calcium, iron and sulfur, and loaded with fiber.

I eat a lot of cabbage following my Raw Food diet because it is so healthy for you and right now it is dirt cheap. All of the grocery stores have been running sales for the past 2 weeks because of upcoming St. Patty’s Day. Tons of corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, and carrots will be served on Thursday. On my plate will just be the cabbage in the form of a salad. Currently the stores around where I live have cabbage on sale for a meager 17 cents a pound. You certainly can‘t beat that.

I have always preferred raw cabbage opposed to cooked cabbage. My Mom is Sicilian and the Italian way to make a cabbage salad is quite simple. You just finely shred cabbage and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and perhaps some garlic powder. YUM! No mayonnaise based cole slaw for my family, this is how we prefer it. I absolutely hate the cole slaws that add mayonnaise and please explain to me why they add sugar to the mix. Yuck!

My favorite go to dinner is my Cabbage Slaw with a Twist. I don’t know how I ever came up with that concoction but I love it. It certainly has strange ingredients as far as pairings go but it just seems to work. There has not been one person that I have made this for that did not like it.

Cabbage Slaw With a Twist

A couple of other favorites I like that I created and put into Spark Recipes so I could track:

Rainbow Slaw

Middle Eastern Cabbage Slaw

I am working on a new recipe, a Thai Cabbage Slaw but I am still tweaking it. It is still a work in progress.

If anyone has been dieting as long as I had prior to joining Spark People you all know about the Cabbage Soup Diet. OMG that was awful. There was no way I could eat just that for all 3 meals for just one day let alone 7 days. The concept of eating a vegetable soup prior to a meal is a great way to cause you to eat less at that meal. However to just eat that as all of your meals is just plain gross to me. No thanks!

There are so many different ways to prepare cabbage. Almost every culture has cabbage dishes from Corn Beef and Cabbage from Irish Americans ()no it is not from Ireland), Creamed Cabbage from the Germans, Curried Cabbage dishes from India, Hungarian Stuffed Cabbage, Curtido which is a Salvadorean Pickled Coleslaw, Kimchee from Korea, Thai Cabbage and Shrimp Salad, Shrimp Tacos from Mexico, Kahlua Pork and Cabbage from Hawaii just to name a few. I bet you never realized how of a staple cabbage was.

Take advantage of the cheap cabbage prices this week and try a new cabbage recipe or two. I must have 3 heads of cabbage in my fridge as it stays fresh for such a long time. I know I will use them up with in the next couple of weeks.

It really pays to eat vegetables in season, especially in this economy. I am counting the days till asparagus comes in season. Followed by my favorites, Jersey Tomatoes and Sweet Jersey Corn. You have never tasted corn so sweet than when you eat it Raw. It is like eating candy.

White Turnips, The Vegetable of the week...

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Like the sweet potato and the yam turnips and rutabagas often have the names used interchangeably. The white turnip is a creamy globe tinged with rose at the top. The rutabaga is a large globe with a tan skin and a yellow interior. The outside is usually waxed to keep the vegetable from drying out. Turnips are smaller than Rutabagas. Turnips have a smooth texture while Rutabagas have a rough texture. They are tougher and starchier than Turnips. While the Turnips come white-fleshed, Rutabagas are yellow-fleshed. While the flesh of Turnips remain whitish after cooked, the Rutabagas changes to yellowish-orange after cooking. Turnips have a bitter flavor compared to the Rutabagas which are a bit sweeter when they are the smaller ones. I think once the rutabaga grows larger than the size of a softball then the rutabaga has the stronger taste. Their growing seasons are also different. Turnips are grow the best between October through March. The Rutabagas season falls from September through June.

Both the turnip and rutabaga are moderately good sources of food fiber, calcium,folic acid, magnesium, and phosphorus, and Vitamins A and C; but, nutritionally, rutabagas are superior, having almost twice the amount of nutrients as the white turnip. Caution: Individuals with thyroid problems should limit or avoid eating turnips because it contains substances called goitrogens which can interfere with the functioning of the thyroid gland.

For additional health benefits and diseases they aid check out:

Mashed Turnips

Bunch of small white turnips
White Pepper

Peel the turnips then dice them up as you would do for potatoes.

Boil in plenty of water for about 45 minutes.

Drain of the water and mash the turnips.

Return the turnips to the pot and warm them with butter, white pepper, and salt to taste

Caramelized Turnips Recipe

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 lbs turnips, peeled and roughly chopped (about 3 large turnips)
1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 cup water
Salt to taste

Using a large nonstick pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add turnips and cook until turnips are browned, about 10 minutes. Add sugar and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add water and a pinch of salt and stir to combine. Simmer for about 10 minutes, until turnips are tender and all liquid has been absorbed.

Baby White Turnip Salad With Toasted Pecans And Bacon

4 small white turnips with their greens attached
1/4 c. pecan halves or pieces
3 oz. bacon
1 green garlic stalk or green onion, sliced on the bias
salt and pepper, to taste
1-2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
1-2 Tbsp. olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350.
Remove the greens from the turnips. Tear the leaves with your hands into medium to large pieces and set aside.
Slice turnips as thin as possible (use a mandoline if you have one). Put into a bowl of iced water.
Toast the pecans in the oven just until they start to brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a non-stick pan, sauté the bacon until crunchy on the outside. Remove from the pan and set aside, reserving the fat.
Prepare a simple vinaigrette: combine vinegar with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in about 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil. Set aside.
Heat the bacon fat in the same pan. Once hot, add the green garlic/onion and sauté until tender. Add greens to the pan, season with salt and just a splash of balsamic vinegar and cook until they are wilted.
Remove the sliced turnips from the iced water bath, dry them with a kitchen towel and toss with the vinaigrette.
Arrange the turnip slices and their greens in a mound and sprinkle bacon and pecans on top.

Purée of Turnip Soup

1 lb white turnips (about 4 medium turnips)
1 medium Russet (or other starchy) potato
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 medium onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
½ cup dry white wine

Cut turnips into (roughly) same-sized pieces, about ½ inch to 1 inch thick.
Peel the potato and cut it into pieces about the same size as the turnips.
In a heavy-bottomed soup pot, heat the butter over a low-to-medium heat.
Add the onion, garlic and turnips and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the onion is slightly translucent, stirring more or less continuously.
Add the wine and cook for another minute or two or until the wine seems to have reduced by about half.
Add the stock and the potato. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the turnips and potatoes are soft enough that they can easily be pierced with a knife. Don't let them get mushy, though.
Remove from heat and purée in a blender, working in batches if necessary.
Season to taste with Kosher salt and white pepper.

Roast Chicken With Turnips

Leon O'Neal's Turnip Greens

Raw Turnip Salad

2 bunches small white turnips (8-10 turnips)
1 - 2 tsp. lemon juice
Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
Freshly ground black pepper

Trim stem end and any scraggly roots off the turnips. If they came with greens attached reserve those for another use. Scrub turnips clean.
Slice turnips very thinly. Put sliced turnips in a medium bowl and toss with the lemon juice.
Divide turnips evenly between 4 to 6 salad plates. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and top with a dusting of freshly ground black pepper.

Raw Turnip Chips

1 white turnip
1 tsp olive oil

Slice white turnips paper thin on a mandoline.
Place in a bowl and add 1 tsp. olive oil to turnips.
Season with salt/pepper to taste or can omit this step.
Mix/massage the turnips and olive oil.
Put in dehydrator for about 5 hours till desired texture @115 degrees. I dehydrate mine till real crispy like Potato Chips.

Raw Turnip Refrigerator Pickles

4 cups white vinegar
2 cups water
6 tablespoons kosher salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup or more pickling spice (or mix your own from mustard seeds, bay leaves, allspice, black pepper, dill seed, cloves, coriander and cinnamon)
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped garlic
1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh herbs like dill and thyme, chopped or sprigs (optional)

Add the salt and sugar to the vinegar and water in a non-aluminum bowl, and mix to dissolve. Add spices, garlic and herbs, if using. Pour over chopped vegetables in a big jar or bowl that will fit, covered, in your refrigerator. After three days start serving the pickles, and adding new vegetables to the pickle vat.

Can do this with: cucumbers, string beans, carrots, jicama, zucchini, green tomatoes - any vegetable you want to pickle actually

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

PS: Just in time for St. Patty’s Day many make their Irish Stew or their Corned Beef and Cabbage recipes and add white turnips to either the stew or to their corned beef boil items. Hint: it is a good way to try turnips. emoticon

Claustrophobic? Me?

Friday, March 11, 2011

Yup! Today was not fun at all. I have had MRIs 2 other times without any problems. Today's MRI was an open MRI so there should have been no issues. The other 2 times they were closed MRIs, go figure.

No sooner than I did the machine slide me inside the machine to begin and I panicked. I hit the button and started screaming for them to slide me out. Seconds had not even passed and they were still in the room hardly inches away from the machine. I came out and they asked me if I wanted to stop. I asked how long would it take and was told the 1st one about 35 minutes. Wasn't thrilled with the answer. I asked if I could take the mask like thing they had around the bottom of my neck and face and the answer was no. I think that was what was causing most of the problem. When I took a breath while in the machine I could feel it coming back onto my face and it freaked me out. I also had my hands folding on my chest and holding the panic button and when I was slid in the tops of my fingers were almost touching the top of the machine's base that was over me.

I asked if I could put my arms down by my side instead of folded across my chest and they said that was fine. I took a couple of deep breaths and then said they could slide me back in. This time I went in with my eyes shut. They asked if I was OK and I said I think so as long as I don't open my eyes.

It was the longest 35 minutes ever. I kept feeling like I was going to panic but I kept it under control. When they rolled me out they said I could stand up to stretch before the 2nd one which was for my shoulder. I asked if they could do it from out here? emoticon They said no! emoticon I knew that was what they would say but I just had to ask. Asked how long this one would be and they said maybe just a little longer than the one they did for my neck. Also asked if I had to get slid in as far and they said no.

They LIED! I opened my eyes and I was way inside. Why did I open my eyes? Dumb move but since I didn't have that masklike thing on my face I didn't feel as closed in. Couldn't wait to get out though.

Asked why I panicked this time in an open MRI when I did not panic previously in a closed one. They wanted to know how many years ago the 1st ones were. They said as we age there is more of a tendency to be claustrophobic.

The only thing I could think of was that is a good thing that when they put me in a coffin and close the lid I won't have to worry about panicking. I will be dead. I couldn't stop thinking about that the whole time I was inside that contraption. I hope I never have to get another MRI. The EMG I had was a walk in the park compared to this. I'll take electrocution over claustrophobia any day.

Hope this gives the Doctor some direction because today was the pits and I hope it wasn't all for nothing.

    MRIs are the pits. I had one for my brain with that mask like thing on my head and it totally freaked me out. Mine had a little "rear view" mirror on it and when I opened my eyes I could see out the tube and down by my feet which were in the open. That view saved me from completely freaking out.

Good for you for finding a way to deal with it. That's courage - being scared but doing it anyway !

My grandmother had to have one done when she was in the hospital she ended up passing I almost think it was a waste of time putting her through that torture she was crying when she came out. emoticon she had Alzheimer's and she didn't know what was happening to her. My Aunt just felt she needed to know that she didn't have a stroke.

I'm so glad it's over and behind you, I just hope it's nothing major and no surgery is needed.
