These chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are made with almonds, coconut oil, honey, chocolate chips, vanilla and a dash of salt, and can be coated with chocolate or served plain. (The first batch disappeared before I got a chance to dip them.) Once you try these tasty little cookie bites, you’ll be hooked. Even my somewhat finicky husband loves them. They’re a great way to get more coconut oil into your diet. (The Tropical Traditions website has a great recipe page with dozens of recipes using coconut products.)
The holiday season seems to leave many of us with upset stomach, indigestion, heart burn, diarrhea and other tummy troubles. If you’re coping with stomach flu symptoms, you should take a look at this post to find out why the BRAT diet is probably not your best option. For extra protection against food-borne illness, check out “Protect Yourself from Salmonella and E Coli Naturally“. For general indigestion, I’ve compiled this home remedies for upset stomach that may help sooth your aching belly, plus recommendations on how to avoid it in the first place.
Did you know you can use honey as medicine? If I had to choose only one medicine I could have in stock, I think it would be honey. These days, specialty wound-care centers might agree.
Honey has become a staple for those hard-to-heal wounds, such as diabetic leg ulcers, burns, even wounds with gangrene. It kills bacteria resistant to other antibiotics and actually heals tissue, nursing the skin back to health. Not only that, but it can decrease the pain.
The Wounds and Burns e-books by Dr. James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H, AKA “The Survival Doctor“, are a solid addition to any home preparedness library, with information the everyone should know.
No one wants to get injured, but sometimes bad things happen to good people. The worst wounds and burns are unfortunately likely to happen when you’re least able to get prompt medical attention – like when you’re caught in a natural or man-made disaster, or when you’re on your own somewhere tackling a task that turns out to be a little too big. Those first few minutes after the injury happens can mean life of death, or the loss a a limb via infection. Be the person who knows the right thing to do.
