03/28/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Spy Wednesday

“Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them,
What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him
for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.”

Matthew 26:12-14 (KJV)

   Thank you, Joan!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 03/27/18 - "Chia Seeds - miraculous help for diabetes, high bp and some forms of cancer.":  

In particular I'm sending this out because it's been found Chia Seeds can help and even in a lot of cases reverse both Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. They helped me lose my weight, after quitting smoking and menopause weight creep up, and have provided such other health benefits that continue to eat at least 1 tablespoon daily, and more often 2.

A brand I like is Healthworks, It is pesticide free. Since they swell, they are filling and greatly reduce appetite, are great for skin and hair and are a big boost to energy. Another noticeable effect for me is no stomach bloating. 2 lbs. is around just 10 dollars on Amazon and possibly eBay, if you don't live near a health store.

There are many recipes but some quick ways to implement into your diet.

1 tbsp in fat free Greek yogurt with 1/4 cup of berries.

1 tbsp a glass of Silkmilk, or even water.

2 Tbsp. in a 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce. - I use just once in a while, as apples are a high fructose fruit.

They are great in smoothies, gluten free oats, salads, and more.


* One other tip I learned was I was eating high protein bars, that resulted in stored glucogen, quite by mistake. They read 0 percent sugar. This simply was not so. Sugar alcohols convert to sugar in the body. So this is the math: if it has 20 grams of sugar alcohol, that equates to 10 grams of sugar. I was eating at least 2 a day, thinking it was a good thing, because of the high protein content, but nope. While I do not do keto, I like to stick with the healthy rule of eating no food, unless it is between 0 and 5 grams of sugar.

Not just me, but others feel a tremendous soar in good health in doing so. No more malaise and lethargy, no brain fog, no stomach bloat and an increase in energy and noticeable increase in muscle tone. The increase in muscle tone increases many times over if one can use the 8/16 Eating Rule. 8 eating and 16 fasting. Sounds hard, but not so hard to do if you eat at 12 noon, then finish eating for the day, before 8 p.m., and of course, eat clean.

Unlike some false claims it really works! I had been eating a lot of fruit in an attempt to the lose weight I had gained, because I had never in my life, other than pregnancy, had a weight issue and was so not happy about it!! That seemed to be making things worse. In desperation, I read about Intermittent fasting and tried it and have been so pleased. Like anything new was a bit hard the first week, but seeing quick results made any mild discomfort worth it. By the second week, it was a breeze.

YouTube has many videos on intermittent fasting and the increase of human growth hormone, as well as many other benefits. Don't think this will just be a fad, more of a healthy lifestyle. The thinking .. 3 meals a day and 2 snacks (or 5 small meals a day) has been found to not have merit. (See caution below.)

There are, however, exceptions to this rule. If one has diabetes you must keep your sugar levels regulated, or exceptionally low blood sugar. I used to have low blood sugar and have no problems at all with going 16 and sometimes 17 hours without eating, but (please listen to your body.)

~~ Wishing you all a happy holiday.~~

   Thank you so much for the good tips, Shari! Happy Easter to you, too!

I Spy a Crocus Hat - "After the brutal winter we’ve endured, I got up out of bed this past Saturday morning – our last weekend in March – hoping that maybe, finally, we’d have a decent, spring-like weekend. I had this silly notion that, “Oh, wouldn’t it be nice, to spy a sweet little crocus peeking out at me from somewhere in the yard?” Rather, overnight, my greening yard became buried under yet another blanket of ice and snow. Fortunately, when Mother Nature disappoints, all we have to do is grab our knitting needles! It’s true - necessity really IS the mother of invention. And, boy, did I ever need to see some flowers! Hence, my new “I Spy a Crocus” hat... " - not free, but $5.00 PDF on Ravelry.

From - 03/27/18:

A professor was at a party and became indignant when asked if college professors were absent-minded.

"Professors don't have bad memory," he declared. "They're not absent-minded. Don't you think I know where I am right now, and don't you think tomorrow I'll know where I was today? Would somebody like to ask me another question?"

"Yes," said another guest. "Is it true that professors are absent-minded and have bad memory?"

"Good!" said the professor. "I knew sooner or later somebody would ask me that question."
