Crispy Pecans Recipe

Ingredients:

4 cups raw pecans
2 teaspoons sea salt
Spring or filtered water

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. You should use enough water to fully cover pecans plus about two inches of extra water above the pecans. Leave mixture to sit overnight or for eight hours.

Drain mixture well with a colander and spread pecans out on a large cookie tray.

Keep tray in a warm oven (less than 150 degrees Farhenheit) for 12 hours or until completely dry and crisp. Be sure to turn the pecans a few times during this time.

Store in an airtight container.

I know that this seems like a lot of work for a few crispy nuts, but once you try them, you'll probably be making more.

By the way, you can do the exact same thing with other nuts like almonds and organic peanuts. Read more about Crispy Pecans Recipe

 

Why I Never Get Flu Shots or Snorts

I don't diagnose or prescribe, and what you do with your body remains entirely up to you and your doctor (if you still turn the responsibility for your health over to some man or woman in a white smock), but I'll gladly tell you what I do regarding flu shots and flu snorts...

I avoid them like the plague!

In fact, at age 58, I've never had a flu shot, and it would take a Marine nurse and at least four burly wrestlers the size of Jesse Ventura to hold me down for such an injection. Read more about Why I Never Get Flu Shots or Snorts

Is There Cancer in Your Toothpaste, Shampoo, or Lip Balm?

Beware Of Arsenic Around Your Home and Playgrounds

As my wife and I sanded the trim around our windows before painting this past summer, I was reminded of the potential danger of arsenic exposure around homes and playgrounds. For the past seven decades, a form of arsenic has been used as a pesticide in pressure treated wood used for playground sets, picnic tables, and wooden decks and porches. The concern is that arsenic – a known carcinogen – can rub off of treated wood and be ingested with hand to mouth contact. Considering that children touch their mouths sixteen times per hour when they are out playing, this is an important issue for all families to consider.

Choosing Healthy Fish For Nourishment

During his travels, renowned nutritionist and dentist, Dr. Weston A. Price found that populations that regularly consumed fish had thicker bones and better skeletal structure than those that consumed mainly red meat or mainly vegetables. Read more about Choosing Healthy Fish For Nourishment
