Food & Beverage

Chia Pudding

Servings: 4 ½-cup servings Prep Time: 6 hours, 5 minutes

Freezer Friendly: No

Nut Butter, Banana, Cacao Smoothie

Servings: 1 Prep time: 5 minutes

This is a great mid-morning or mid-day ‘pick me up’ snack. I prefer to freeze the bananas ahead of time to give the smoothie a thick essence like a milkshake just for a different texture but unfrozen bananas work just as well. A frozen banana also substitutes for ice cubes so the drink is not diluted by the ice/water. Use UNsweetened Vanilla almond milk because the sugar count is lower versus the sweetened version – up to 16 grams of added sugar per cup. I suggest creamy peanut butter rather than with nuts so the drink is a creamy consistency. I use Cacao, not to confuse with Cocoa, but you can use any chocolate you desire.


  • 24 oz. Almond Milk (I prefer Unsweetened Vanilla – but any Unsweetened flavor will do)
  • 1 large banana (frozen)
  • ¼ cup Organic creamy Peanut Butter, Almond Butter or other nut butter
  • 1 teaspoon powdered Organic Cacao

Blend all ingredients to your desired consistency in a blender then drink immediately.

Orange-Banana Smoothie:

Serving: 1, (Prep time: 10 minutes)

  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • ½ tbsp lime juice
  • ½ cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 banana, fresh or frozen

Place all ingredients in blender, cover, and blend on high speed until smooth. Serve immediately.

Peach Smoothie

Serving: 1, Prep time: 5 minutes

  • 1 cup Frozen or Fresh Peaches
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • 2/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk OR 6 oz. yogurt
  • 1 TBS honey, Raw, (if available)

Place all ingredients in blender, cover, and blend on high speed until smooth. Serve immediately.

Pancakes with Wild Blueberry & Banana

Servings: Makes 16 small pancakes

When making this recipe, it’s important to note that this batter behaves a little differently than traditional pancake batter, so make sure to follow the directions closely. If you run into trouble using a skillet, try baking them instead for great results.


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 4 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • 1 cup wild blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
  • ½ cup maple syrup


  1. For the batter, blend the bananas, honey, baking powder, and sea salt together with the water until smooth. Add the almond flour and potato starch and continue to blend until a thick, even batter forms.
  2. To cook on the skillet: Heat ½ teaspoon of coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour the batter into the skillet by heaping tablespoons of it to create small pancakes. If needed, use the back of the spoon to smooth the batter evenly into a circle. Cook the pancakes for 2½ to 3 minutes, then flip and cook for 4 minutes on the other side until cooked through. Because of the banana, the inside of the pancake will remain moist even when they are done.
  3. To bake in the oven: Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and lightly grease the parchment paper with coconut oil. Spoon the batter onto the baking trays in 3-inch circles. If needed, use the back of a spoon to smooth the batter evenly. Bake the pancakes in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges turn golden, then flip and bake for 2 minutes more.
  4. For the wild blueberry maple syrup, combine ½ cup of maple syrup and 1 cup of wild blueberries in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the syrup for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently until it is hot and well combined.
  5. Stack the pancakes on a plate and serve topped with wild blueberry maple syrup.

This batter, while completely delicious, does not behave exactly like traditional pancake batter. It will be slightly thicker, which means you may need to use a spoon to smooth it into shape.

Additionally, the pancakes need to be flipped before they seem ready. The batter should hold together well, though, so slip the spatula underneath quickly and give them a good flip.

The star ingredients of these delicious pancakes are the wild blueberries, banana, raw honey, and maple syrup. Each ingredient not only tastes wonderful but also offers incredible healing properties. Let’s take a look at them.

Wild blueberries help restore the central nervous system and flush viral neurotoxins out of the liver. They contain exceptionally powerful antioxidants that help repair your thyroid’s tissue and reduce the growth of nodules. They also help remove toxic heavy metals from the brain and liver. Ultimately, this all means that wild blueberries stop a shrinking brain and a shrinking thyroid. Not to be confused with their larger, cultivated cousins, wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of many grocery stores.

Bananas provide amino acids and the right kind of potassium to rebuild neurotransmitters after they’ve been burnt out by viral neurotoxins. They’re also powerful for their antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Bananas are a wonderful calcium source because the trees grow in calcium-rich soil and they’re also a great tool for hypoglycemia, as they help balance blood sugar. Don’t worry about the fad that says bananas have too much sugar. Their fruit sugar is actually critical brain food, plus it’s bonded to the amino acids and minerals that give bananas their life-changing nutrition.

Raw honey is the best replenishing fuel there is to feed and revitalize the thyroid. The glucose and other nutrients in raw honey practically get mainlined into the thyroid to feed the gland. Medical science doesn’t yet have its finger on the pulse of the symbiotic relationship between honey and the thyroid. Honey is an antiviral, too, that helps fight viruses with its zinc content.

Maple syrup holds dozens of trace minerals that fortify the brain and the rest of the nervous system, protecting them from oxidation due to heavy metal damage and viral neurotoxins. Maple syrup helps to build glycogen storage banks in the liver and brain to help balance blood sugar, which keeps the adrenals strong and stable so they can support the thyroid.

Protein Balls – 5 Ingredients (Low Sugar, Grain-Free)

Servings: 20 (Balls), Prep Time: 20 Minutes


  • 1 cup nut butter (almond, peanut, cashew, or sunflower)
  • 3-5 pitted medjool dates* (add more for sweeter bites)
  • 2/3 cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds (or sub other seeds, such as sesame or flax)
  • 3-4 Tbsp protein powder* (vanilla flavored or chocolate – or other flavor of choice)

Topping (optional) – recommended to make these more appealing, visually

  • Melted dark chocolate (dairy-free as needed – like Enjoy Life)
  • Hemp seeds
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Sea salt


  1. Add nut butter, pitted dates, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and protein powder to food processor and blend until all ingredients are well combined and a cookie dough-like texture forms (see Photo on website).
  2. If too wet, add more dry ingredients of choice, such as protein powder or hemp seeds. If too crumbly or dry, add a little more nut butter. NOTE: These are meant to be on the tender side, so don’t be concerned if they’re a little soft (they’ll firm up in the refrigerator or freezer).
  3. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more protein powder of choice for flavor or more dates for sweetness (if adding more dates, chop first to encourage even blending). Mix again until well combined.
  4. Scoop out rounded 1 Tbsp amounts and roll into balls (as recipe is written -20. we love this scoop). Place on a parchment – lined plate or platter.
  5. Roll the balls in hemp seeds or desiccated coconut, or melt some dark chocolate in a double boiler on the stovetop, or in 20-second increments in the microwave, then spoon a small amount over the bites (all optional).
  6. Transfer balls to the freezer or refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes to firm up. We recommend storing these in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer up to 1month for best texture. They are delicious straight out of the refrigerator or freezer and tend to soften at room temperature.

*In place of dates, you could sub maple syrup to taste. Just add more dry ingredients of choice to offset the wetter texture.

*The protein powder we used was Tropeaka Lean Vanilla protein. It does contain brown rice protein. If you need to keep this recipe grain-free, choose a grain-free protein, such as Nuzest.

*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated without optional ingredients.

Quinoa, Heavenly Rainbow Quinoa Salad

Serves 6, Prep Time: 1 hour

It is best using raw organic vegetables and herbs. It is packed with protein. This is always popular at summer gatherings.

Wash the following vegetables and herbs gently – do not cook!

  • 1 cup organic rainbow quinoa, rinsed well. Add two cups of water then cook the same as rice. Drain, then allow to cool before adding to other ingredients below.
  • 3 carrots (Best if multicolored such as purple, orange and yellow).
  • Fennel, use all of stalks and ½ of bulb.
  • 2 stalks celery, including some of the leaves (this allows a natural balance of sodium and potassium to occur).
  • 2 Green onions or chives
  • Parsley, several sprigs
  • Garlic- 1 TBS of dry minced OR 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic. (Crush fresh cloves then allow to ‘sit’ for 15 minutes to allow the enzymes in the garlic to start working).

Mix and fold the above with the cooked quinoa using a big mixing bowl.
Then add to the above mix:

  • Lemon juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS Simply Organic All-purpose seasoning
  • Grey sea salt (or any sea salt) to taste
  • ½ cup slivered or chopped almonds
  • ½ cup sprouted sunflower seeds

Mix and fold salad to combine evenly.

Optional additions:

  • Spicy sprouts
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Hemp seed
  • Balsamic glaze sauce

Dr. Furman’s Famous Anti-Cancer Soup

Serves: 10

  • ½ cup dried split peas
  • ½ cup dried beans (can use any variety)
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 medium onions, chopped
  • 6-8 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 leek stalks, coarsely chopped
  • 2 bunches kale, collard greens, or other greens, chopped (remove tough stems and center ribs)
  • 5 pounds carrots, juiced, (5-6 cups juice- see note below)
  • 2 bunches celery, juiced (2 cups juice: see note below)
  • 2 TBS Mrs. Dash or Dr. Furman’s VegiZest (or something comparable)
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms (shitake, cremini, and/or oyster), chopped

Place the split peas, beans, and water in a very large pot over low heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the onions, zucchini, leeks, and kale to the pot. Add the carrot juice, celery juice, and Mrs. Dash. Simmer until the onions, zucchini, and leeks are soft, about 45 minutes.

Remove 2 cups of the soup liquid, being careful to leave the beans and at least half of the kale in the pot. Using a high-powered blender or food processor blend the soup liquid with the cashews. Return the creamy mixture to the pot. Add the mushrooms and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the beans are soft.

NOTE: Freshly juiced organic carrots and celery will maximize the flavor of this soup.

    Turmeric Tea

    Serves: 1

    A great way to help reduce inflammation is to ingest turmeric. Turmeric can be purchased in loose or capsule form. When making tea from the capsule be sure to remove the turmeric from the capsule and discard the capsule before adding water.


    • Combine 1 tsp turmeric with 6-8 oz of warm water.
    • OK to add a LITTLE bit of Honey or Stevia if necessary.

    Drink 2 X per day. Work up to 2 tsp. 3-4 X per day. Drink as a tea. CAUTION: turmeric, whether dry or liquid, stains anything it comes in contact with, e.g. counter tops, fabric, and/or skin. Use with care. Turmeric is great for liver detoxifying and strengthening.

    Watermelon Punch

    A friend found this recipe in Cooking Light. I modified it to make it more user friendly with some healthier ingredient choices. This healthy drink is high in antioxidants, particularity Lycopene. Lycopene is known as a cancer-preventative phytonutrient (the nutrients found in living plants) which is known to help improve heart health and fight many cancers according to PubMed and WebMD. I suggest organic watermelon to enable this drink to be of highest quality to help fight disease(s). I like to serve it at summer parties because it is a healthy, refreshing, different drink with a unique flavor. It always seems to get great reviews from guests. This will freeze well up to 6 months.


    • 8 cups Fresh organic seedless watermelon, cut up into pieces
    • 2 Tablespoons Fresh organic grated and peeled ginger root, to taste
    • ½ cup fresh Lime – including juice and pulp
    • ½ cup agave
    • 1 cup sparkling water

    Put 4 cups watermelon in a blender; process until smooth. Repeat with remaining watermelon until all watermelon is blended. Combine juice, agave, and ginger in a bowl; stir with a wisk until blended. Add lime juice and pulps, stir, then combine with watermelon juice. Blend in blender until desired consistency is reached. Stir in Sparkling water just before serving.

    Watermelon Ginger Smoothie

    This is a cousin of the above recipe. I modified the recipe to make it user friendly and easy to make quickly. I like this smoothie thick and spicy with lots of ginger root.


    • Approximately 8 cups Fresh organic seedless watermelon
    • Approximately 2 Tablespoons Fresh organic grated, peeled and diced ginger root, to taste
    • Approximately ½ cup or One fresh Lime – including juice and pulp

    Separate the watermelon pulp from the rind then place pulp into the blender. Some seeds are ok as long as you don’t have health issues which prevent consumption of seeds like diverticulitis. Add diced fresh ginger root and lime juice to watermelon. Blend ingredients in blender to desired consistency. Storing in the refrigerator lasts up to 3 days or it starts to loose the lycopenes. Making large batches at a time to freeze for future use is a great way to enjoy this refreshing drink for many days or weeks ahead. So I recommend freezing large batches by pouring the drink into an empty gallon container – like a milk carton container then place in freezer. This will freeze well up to 6 months. If I intend to drink this immediately I pour individual servings into canning jars so it is ready to serve then store in the refrigerator.

    DIY Health Tips

    Diaper Rash (Natural) Ointment


    • 2 ounces Rose Ointment™
    • 4 drops Gentle Baby™ Essential oil
    • 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil
    • 2 drops German Chamomile Essential Oil

    Combine in a small jar. Use ointment multiple times per day.

    Ears – Homemade Ear Solutions:

    Here are some practical easy solutions to use at home when dealing with an earache. These solutions are safe for infants, children and adults.

    • For help with Bacteria and Fungus, combine 50/50 Alcohol & white vinegar.
    • To loosen ear wax, combine 50/50 Hydrogen Peroxide & Alcohol.

    Place several drops in each ear. You may need to place a cotton ball in the ear to prevent the mixture from rolling out of the ear.

    Garlic Footies

    Lyme disease bacteria and Babesia can get into the brain. These toxins create brain fog and neurological problems. They can become very toxic if not cleared from the brain. These toxins can create the inability to multi-task, think clearly and/or sleep well.

    Garlic has anti-bacterial and anti-toxin properties.

    To create your own ‘garlic footies’ follow these simple instructions:

    Needed supplies:

    • Plastic wrap
    • Disposable gloves
    • Olive Oil
    • UNpetroleum jelly
    • Socks
    • Knife or garlic press
    • Cutting board

    Apply ‘garlic footies’ at night before going to bed. Take one clove (or toe) of garlic which is enough to cover one foot. Peel off outer skin, then cut garlic into thin pieces or use a garlic press and make garlic into a mashed substance. The pungent smell is Allicin which is the active component which enables you to detoxify. Mix the garlic with the UNpetroleum jelly using enough to create a paste. Use gloves or a paper towel to apply the olive oil to the bottom of the foot using enough to create a slight film on the foot. Use gloves to handle the garlic mixture because the garlic can be caustic to the skin and can even burn you. The olive oil AND UNpetroleum jelly help to protect the skin. Apply the garlic mixture to the bottom of the foot at the arch area. Wrap the foot at least twice with the plastic wrap to ensure the mixture does not leak out; then cover with a sock (which you don’t really care about due to possible staining or smell), then go to bed. Leave on overnight.

    The next morning you will need to go to the bathroom to remove the socks and plastic wrap to throw trash into trash can. Wipe off the garlic mixture – be prepared for the strong garlic smell, and then wash your feet. You may want to use some mild soap on the feet to remove all of the mixture. I suggest you sit on the side of the tub with your feet in the tub with a trash can next to you for convenience so once you remove the ‘footies’ you can toss them into the trash can and are then be ready to wash your feet.

    The garlic will have made its way into your system so you should feel less toxic, less fatigued and have less brain fog.

    Liver Cleansing Juice

    From the ‘Raw Juices Can Save Your life, An A-Z Guide to Juicing by Sandra Cabot, MD


    • 2 Dandelion leaves OR
    • 2 Spinach Leaves OR
    • 2 large Cabbage leaves
    • ½ cup broccoli florets
    • 1 cup cauliflowers OR
    • 2 large Brussels sprouts
    • 1 clove Garlic OR
    • 1 small radish (optional)

    Wash, trim, & chop vegetables and process through juicer. This juice is high in Vitamin C and Sulphur compounds to cleanse the liver. This is a very strong mixture and may be diluted 1 part juice to 1 part water, or you can dilute it with cold herb or fruit flavored tea. Drink 17 to 35 oz. daily.

    May sweeten this juice by adding 1 or 2 of:

    • Strawberries
    • Grapes
    • Carrot or
    • Beetroot

    (If you mix grapes & Carrots together it may cause flatulence, aka gas)

    Parasite Cleansing Tea

    (Continue for at least 30-40 days)


    • Fresh organic Turmeric root, sliced into thin slivers
    • Fresh organic Ginger root, sliced into thin slivers
    • Filtered water

    Organic turmeric & organic ginger is key here so the tea cleanse is not contaminated with pesticides, herbicides & fertilizers. Also, filtered water is best so it is not contaminated with fluoride, chlorine & other contaminants which can be found in water sources from faucets and refrigerator hoses.

    For every 2 quarts of filtered water, add 1 cup ginger AND 1 cup turmeric.

    Boil the water, ginger & turmeric for 10 minutes, then simmer for 30 minutes. You may leave in the pot, covered overnight. The following morning re-boil the tea, lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Then it is ready to drink again. If it is too spicy then dilute with additional filtered water.

    WARNING: this is a very ‘spicy hot’ tea. Should you need to reduce the spiciness of the tea, reduce the amount of the ginger & turmeric maintaining a 1:1 ratio of ginger/turmeric.

    Once the tea is bland in color and taste, discard the original tea mixture. It is necessary to make a new batch as described above.

    Drink many ounces from this batch daily. You may sip on it daily, drink it all at one time and/or drink with or without food.

    WARNING: This tea is NOT for everyone, although Turmeric and ginger have many health benefits. Turmeric is known to help lower glucose levels, reduce inflammation and stabilize blood sugar levels. However, it is NOT recommended for individuals who cannot tolerate salicylates or individuals with gallbladder issues, kidney stones, anemia, and/or cannot take blood thinners. It may not be advisable for individuals taking insulin medications, or diagnosed with hypoglycemia and/or thrombocytopenia. Ginger is known to have antioxidants. Ginger will help reduce inflammation, nausea, digestive issues and it lowers blood sugar & cholesterol levels. However, ginger is NOT recommended for individuals who cannot take blood thinners or tolerate salicylates. It may not be advisable for individuals taking insulin medications, or diagnosed with hypoglycemia and/or thrombocytopenia.

    NOTE: Since the ingredients are fresh, the strength of the tea is NOT a pharmaceutical grade product


    Cut suppository stick into thirds. Insert ONE piece (1/3 of a stick) into rectum while either sitting on or over toilet or lying on floor or bed. Hold suppository in rectum as long as possible. There will be leakage from the rectum – so if lying, then place tissues between cheeks. You can also use tissue while sitting if preferred to prevent the stick from prematurely releasing from the rectum. The suppository will start to dissolve very quickly, so you must insert it immediately after handling it. After insertion, rubbing the melted suppository onto your hands will kill any pathogens (germs) on your fingers. In addition, it will get into your joints and muscles to fingers and hands to kill pathogens located in that area. Once you are finished lying or sitting, then washing your hands is appropriate.

    Urinary Tract Infection Cures

    (also known as UTI cures)

    Vinegar Recipe:
    Making a home vinegar cure for bladder infections is simple. You will need only a few basic items that most of us already have in our homes. Combine 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 2 tsp. cinnamon, a pinch of kosher salt, and 8 to 10 ounces of hot water. Mix well; then, drink the remedy several times a day until the symptoms of the bladder infection have disappeared.

    Baking Soda:
    To help prevent a UTI from developing or nip one in the bud, try adding 1 teaspoon baking soda to a glass of water as it may help ease your infection. The soda neutralizes the acidity in your urine, speeding along your recovery.

    * UTI’s which last longer than two days require medical intervention. Contact your health care practitioner should you experience a suspected urinary infection which has not cleared up. Untreated, UTI’s can infect the kidney(s) and perhaps turn into a more serious problem.


    You will need the information below only if I directed you to review it.

    Air Samples

    To obtain an air sample fill a clean glass jar or glass container with clean water. Do not cover the container. Place the container in an area of a room or the house which is NOT used frequently. Leave in the area for at least 8 hours. Then, place a clean paper towel into the container long enough to saturate the paper towel with the ‘sample’ water. Remove the paper towel, squeeze out most of the water, then place the paper towel into a sealable bag such as a Ziploc. If you collected multiple samples then place each sample into a separate bag. Label each sample with the room the sample was taken. Either bring the samples to my office or mail them. Once we determine the source of an issue we will discuss the steps necessary to correct the issue(s). Once corrected you may collect a second air sample to be re-valuated. Bring/mail the second sample to my office to review the effectiveness of this process. We will discuss the results and any additional step(s) or procedure(s) which may be necessary.


    There are several concerns about addressing mold. If you live in a home with mold then you will possibly develop multiple health issues. If you have ANY chronic health issues consider mold and/or mold spores as part of the contributing factor. Mold can be obvious by presenting itself in a fuzzy moldy covering in a multitude of colors including white, grey, black and/or green. Sometimes mold has an odor. By contrast mold SPORES are colorless, tasteless and have no odor. This elusiveness enables the spores to go unnoticed and undetected. However, the health risk is high. Mold spores/mold can be brought into the home from several sources such as on clothing, shoes, pets, and/or through open windows and doors. Therefore, it is imperative you make lifestyle changes to create and then maintain a healthy home environment. First, start by NOT leaving doors and/or windows open to ‘air out the house on a beautiful spring day’. You will need to clean the home and laundry in the manner described below. There are many cleaning products which will kill mold however I am only aware of ONE product which will kill mold SPORES. That product is ‘EverClear’ grain alcohol. This can only be purchased at most liquor stores. It is made from grain and is bottled at 120, 151, 189, and 190 U.S. proof (60%, 75.5%, 94.5% and 95% alcohol by volume, respectively). You can use any strength for the purposes of killing mold/ mold spores. It is NOT recommended for consumption under any circumstances.

    Cleaning your environment and home:
    Combine ‘EverClear’ grain alcohol in a sprayer bottle using 1 part ‘EverClear’ to 9 parts clean water. No special bottle is needed for this purpose so a bottle purchased from the local Dollar store is fine. Spray the solution onto ALL horizontal surfaces including but not limited to counter tops, glass furniture tops, appliance tops, floors… To clean wood furniture surfaces spray mixture onto clean white rag then wipe the surface clean. You can also apply in the same manner onto wooden floors if you are not comfortable spraying directly onto the floor. This should be repeated every time you clean. This is NOT a one-time only procedure.

    Cleaning the laundry & other washables:
    To eliminate mold AND mold spores from your clothing, linens, towels and other washable fabrics add approximately1 TBS. BORAX to your washing machine using your usual laundry detergent.

    Maintaining a clean environment:
    Continue to clean the house and laundry as described above to maintain a healthy environment and lifestyle.

    Water Samples

    1. To obtain water samples fill a clean glass jar or glass container with water obtained directly from the faucets and/or water sources per my instructions. Water sources include but will not be limited to refrigerator hose lines, water pitchers, water fountains, etc. Obtain a separate sample for each faucet or water source by using one container per faucet or water source. Do NOT combine the water samples into one container. Cover the container and label the source of the water. Then mail or transport the sample(s) to my office.
    2. Once we determine the source of an issue you will need to clean the inside of the faucet or water source by spraying a cleaning product, such as ‘EverClear’ grain alcohol, into the faucet or water source. Let the cleaner stay in place for several minutes then flush out with water. Then obtain another water sample from the source in question. Bring/mail the second sample to my office to review the effectiveness of this process. We will discuss the results and any additional step(s) or procedure(s) which may be necessary if cleaning as instructed above did not address the original issue.
