2.  Help Your Body Repair the Damage

3.  Maintain Your Health for Life

Acorn Stew -  Peel off the outer part of the acorns and grind inner meat of the acorns until you have one cup of acorn flour (this flour can be used to make bread also).  Cover a beef roast (2-3 pounds) with water in a large pot and bring to a boil.  Simmer several hours until the beef is tender and add 1 tsp. of sea salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper.  Remove the beef, while allowing the liquid in the pot to continue to simmer.  Shred the beef and mix with the acorn meal.  Add this mixture back into the broth and simmer together until the broth bubbles creamy white with golden flecks.

Cattails - 1) Dig several of the tuberous roots, which are usually fairly shallow, just under the mud. Wash well, then peel. Boil in lightly sea-salted water, just as with potatoes, or bake in an oven until tender. Serve with organic butter.  2) From Spring until June before the green flower spikes turn golden brown, cut the spikes off with a sharp knife, remove any leaves that surround the spike, and boil in lightly sea-salted water for about 45 minutes, or longer if cooking many spikes.  Serve hot with organic butter and eat like corn on the cob. 

Dandelions - Make a healthy coffee substitute with dandelion roots that contains no caffeine.  Pull dandelions along with the root from an area of ground that has not been treated with pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, or other chemicals.  Cut off and discard the tops and rinse the roots well.  Allow to dry in the sun or in a slow oven until brittle, and then crush with a mortar and pestle.

Edible Flowers - Click Here to find out which flowers are edible.  Do not pick flowers that have been exposed to animal excrement, sprayed with pesticides or fertilizers, come from a florist, that are on the side of the road and have been exposed to carbon monoxide and trash, or flowers that show signs of disease or have been eaten by insects.  If you are unsure if it is edible, do not eat it.  If you have any allergies, consult a physician before consuming edible flowers.  

Fish Grill - Dip 1-1/2 pounds of small fish fillets (choose small northern deep-sea fish to avoid mercury and other contamination) in milk and coat with a mixture made from 1/2 cup of corn meal (yellow, blue, or red corn) and 3/4 cup of any combination of Kamut, Millet, and/or Amaranth flours.  Let the breading set on the fillets for 10 minutes.  Heat a pan with olive oil, and brown fillets on both sides.  Serve with lemon, fresh herbs, or purple tartar sauce (see below) if desired.

Herbal Recipes - Use herbs and vegetables to make delicious dinners, desserts, wines, medicinals, lotions, ointments, and perfumes. 

Maple Popcorn Balls - Pop 1/4 cup of organic popcorn using an air popper.  Season with sea salt if desired.  Heat 1 cup of real maple syrup and 1-1/2 teaspoons of organic butter over medium heat, stirring constantly until the temperature reaches 250 degrees (on a candy thermomenter) or when a few drops form soft balls when dropped in cold water.  How to tap maple trees for maple syrup.

Purple Tartar Sauce - Combine in a large bowl 1 cup of finely minced purple cabbage, 1 tablespoon of finely minced fresh parsley, 1/4 cup finely minced chives or green onions, 1-1/2 teaspoons of finely minced fresh dill, 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, 1/4 cup of organic mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons minced dill pickle, and sea salt to taste.  Garnish with sprinkled chive flowers if desired.

Rose Hip Nut Bread - Blend together in a large bowl 1 cup of orange juice, 1/2 cup of chopped unsulfured raisins, 3/4 cup seeded and chopped wild rose hips, 2 tablespoons of melted organic butter, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 1 egg.  Separately sift together 1-1/2 cups of flour (organic graham flour, acorn flour, spelt, quinoa, or whole-grain flour -- no white or durum flour), 1 cup of organic cane sugar, 1 tsp. organic baking powder, 1/2 tsp. organic baking soda, and 1/4 tsp. of sea salt.  Add the dry mixture to the rest of the ingredients in the large bowl.  Mix until well-blended.  Whole-grain bread should be heavy, but do not overmix or bread will be dry.  Gently stir in ground nuts of choice or ground sunflower seeds.  Pour into a 5 x 8" pan that has been greased well with extra virgin olive oil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
