Ridiculously Good Pumpkin Spice Cookies,

Not only are these pumpkin cookies delicious, but this fabulous recipe will have you eating tons of pumpkins and squash long before the traditional Thanksgiving pumpkin pies. Oh yeah, they're also vegan (if you must have your eggs, add two liquid chickens eggs instead of the egg replacer).

Ridiculously Good Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Preheat oven to 325°F
Ingredients (all organic, yes?) (Freeze some of the batter for Thanksgiving day or the dough and make them fresh)
  • 1 cup cooked pumpkin (cut in half, scoop out seeds, place cut side down on baking sheet and bake at 350 until soft. Peel and mash or blend the pumpkin.)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter, or even olive oil)
  • 3/4 cup unrefined sugar (or sub. maple syrup or honey etc. just taste the batter for desired sweetness)
  • Egg replacer equivalent for 2 eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (use coconut flour i.e)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Mix all of the ingredients together, adjust spices to your taste, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Drop by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
Try substituting sweet potatoes or butternut squash (or any winter squash) for the pumpkin for a different taste, put them in muffin tins, or bake in a loaf pan.
They're incredibly tasty (ridiculously good, even), and you can eat all you want, because they're made from vegetables!
[Actually, you can't eat all you want, because of course you'll need to share some with the wife and kids, right? And anything you read on this blog is purely conjecture, so don't tell your doctor I said you could eat all you want.]

We are bombarded with heavy, metals in food, air and soil. The drugs you are taking could be half or more of refine metals. Chemicals (Round up) are more cruder form metals and are toxin that are not broken down in soil or plants. Right now we
are breathing metals in our air (cars) that are pollutant. We must pay attention to our home with cleaning homes etc or take a look at your fans or filters. Look at them you will see what your family is breathing this black into your organs.

25 Best Ways to Detox From Heavy Metals, Pesticides, Environmental Pollutants, and Metabolic Waste
July 26, 2013 | By Wendy Blanks | Natural Health, Natural Medicine

If you are endlessly tired, irritable, have trouble losing weight, or feel depressed, you might be suffering from the environmental onslaught of toxins being poured into our air, water and soil by greedy corporate monopolies. If you aren’t sure whether you are suffering from toxic overload, you can at least be certain you are not immune to the toxic effects of environmental pollution like oil spills, fracking, chemtrails, nuclear energy (think Fukushima), or even the domestic production of war materials. Even every day items like shampoo and rug cleaners also contain thousands of chemicals that are deadly toxic in higher dosages.

From concern about BPAs to heavy metals, pesticide residues and GMO foods, its time to take an offensive, instead of defensive, view of our health. Here are more than two dozen ways to purify the body from these ill-imagined pollutants:

1. Support the liver and gallbladder with  organic beetroot. Beets are a valuable source of iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium which all support healthy detoxification and better elimination. They are also full of B3, B6, C, and beta-catoene, important nutrients for supporting the liver and gallbladder in making bile acids which support detox.

2. Drink more purified water. Water is one of the most vital ways of self-purification on the planet. It helps every single cell get rid of waste and allows us to excrete toxins through our urine and bowels, as well as through our skin via sweat. (Reverse Osmosis)

3. Bathe in Kaolin clay or use acalcium montmorillonite clay as they are considered the best for removing pesticides from the body.

4. Reduce your meat and dairy intake since these animals are often fed antibiotic in their diets. (grass-fed is better)

5. Consume more pantethine, a biologically active form of the B5 vitamin, which can help open blockages created by pesticide consumption. When we are too clogged with pesticides our bodies cannot naturally detoxify themselves.

6. Use activated charcoal. It is very safe to consume up to 20-30 grams a day mixed with purified water. Activated charcoal binds to pesticides and other environmental toxins and then ushers them through the intestines to be purged form the body. You can also supplement with molasses after using activated charcoal just to be sure to replace important minerals the charcoal might leech from the body in the process of getting rid of the unwanted toxins.

7. Eat more citrus. Pectins in citrus are a very powerful detoxifying substance. Citrus naturally remove heavy metals without depleting the body of important trace minerals.

8. Create and keep an alkaline state in the body by eating more organic fruits and vegetables that support multiple channels of detoxification in the body. They clean the liver, the bowels, the skin, the blood, especially lemons etc. (Even, Juicing but don't get carried away)

9. Eat more fiber. When we eat fiber, the liver can more easily flush toxins through the digestive system and we take an immense load off an organ that is constantly trying to get rid of toxic substances from the body. High fiber foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, potatoes (including their skin), etc.

10. Eat more grapefruit containing naringenin, a special flavanoid that helps the liver burn fat instead of storing toxins in our fat cells. (On Rx it may say not to eat grapefruit because it will take their drug out of the body making it ineffective.)

11. Eating garlic can help boost detoxification since it helps to boost the production of white blood cells, otherwise known as lymphocytes, an important part of the immune system as well.

12. Eating asparagus can educe the levels of pesticides in the body.

13. Eating organic, free-range eggs can also help to remove toxins from the body. They also boost energy levels.

14. Increasing your levels of vitamin C is so good for you, and detoxing the body that it was found this vitamin could help reduce levels of radiation exposure, even in people who were living near Fukushima. Greens, Lobelia, Aloes will take out radiations

15. Native Americans have been using sarsaparilla for hundreds of years in teas and tinctures as a way to effectively detox the blood. It also effectively treats liver, kidney and skin conditions. This will also thin the blood.

16. Exercising and staying active is vital to keeping impurities out of the body. Just 30 minutes to an hour every day brings oxygen rich blood to the liver and kidneys, thus supporting them in detoxifying the body.

17. Eating brazil nuts, which are full of glutathione, a natural detoxifying substance, can help the body get rid of pesticides and other harmful toxins. Also, full of selenium, Brazil nuts help to create more glutathione. Sometimes called the mother of all antioxidants.

18. Our skin is one of the biggest organs of detoxification. It covers about 22 square feet and we replace skin cells every single day. Dry brushing is a great way to help support the skin in detoxing the body through sweat, bathing, etc. If our pores are clogged, the skin becomes less effective. Dry brushing also helps encourage lymph flow that helps to flush toxins from the body. (see...Oil Pullin technique's also)

19. Take Milk Thistle. Sylibum marianum, also known as Milk thistle is a great support for the liver. Long with helping the body detox, this herb has been linked to reduction in certain cancers, reduced diabetes and even reduction digestive disorders. Or, other herbs for the live. I am never without some liver herb and I rotate them. I love yellow dock. The Essiac Tea and all cancer herbals are liver herb.

20. Consume Essiac Tea, which cleanses the body and also has anti-cancer properties. This tea can help the body rid itself of pesticides used with GMOs, and ground-spraying including permethrin.

21. Eat your sea vegetables. Algin in seaweeds helps to absorb toxins form the digestive tract (in much the same way that water softener removes hardness from tap water) so they can be eliminated more easily. They also offer the largest range of vital trace minerals that can help to clean the blood. (Don't take this if your allergic to iodine or fish)

22. Consuming dandelion greens and roots can help to detox the body due to their high levels of antioxidants but also help to support liver decongestion. (Liver herbs)

23. Use broccoli sprouts in your salads to ingest important substances that help with detoxification: sulphorophanes, indole-3-carbinol and D-glucarate. Sprouts also contain up to 20 times more sulfurophane than regular, full grown broccoli plants.

24. Eat flaxseed and flaxseed oil to help detox the body. This super food is full of fiber and Omega 3s, both important substances for detoxification.

25. Add turmeric to your recipes. This root is full of Curcumin, used often in Ayurvedic Medicine to treat liver and digestive disorders, and a great detoxing agent.
26, Lobelia: Follow directions on bottle. This will remove all poisons and drugs so be careful here. It's an herb I'm never without, You do have to know how to work with this herb. Start with a tincture. especially with children and gradually increase it.
27. Goldenseal root will take out drugs too, so be careful when you take it. Great for itching caused by drugs.

Tough Times Discissions For Children by Sun Trust Bank

 THE NAME OF MY BLOG: TOUGH TIME and here's only one of the stories that can happen to any of us.
When I got my divorce in '83 with five children to raise by myself; it wasn't popular nor accepted to go in a store dumpsters. But, I had to if I wanted fresh produce. Some fruit or vegetables come with spots or a bit over ripe etc. but, was good enough for my children nutritional needs. I would cut out the spots, sanitize them with vinegar or peroxide and some times get the odd ducks and throw them into a soup pot even though I had no meat.
I never told my children because they would have actually left me. Their father had money, and with it refused to pay any child support. It was a game he played to force me back and, later after he got married, them back.
My poverty was not just at this time period. When my migrant workers parents followed the crops we resorted to dumps where farmers would dump loads of old sweet potatoes, potatoes or onions that was in dirt when the fields were gleaned for winter.
I am for the single parents who have to make do and we could make it easier for them. The store owner boxed up the produce (for chickens) and left them beside the dumpster. If they where not gone that day he chucked them inside the next day.
Hundreds of poor people waiting outside of a closed grocery store for the possibility of getting the remaining food is not the picture of the “American Dream.” Yet on March 23, outside the Laney Walker Supermarket in Augusta, Ga., that is exactly what happened.
Residents filled the parking lot with bags and baskets hoping to get some of the baby food, canned goods, noodles and other non-perishables. But a local church never came to pick up the food, as the store owner prior to the eviction said they had arranged. By the time the people showed up for the food, what was left inside the premises—as with any eviction—came into the ownership of the property holder, SunTrust Bank.

The bank ordered the food to be loaded into dumpsters and hauled to a landfill instead of distributed. The people that gathered had to be restrained by police as they saw perfectly good food destroyed. Local Sheriff Richard Roundtree told the news “a potential for a riot was extremely high.”

“People got children out here that are hungry, thirsty,” local resident Robertstine Lambert told Fox54 in Augusta. “Why throw it away when you could be issuing it out?”


SunTrust bank is trying to confuse the issue and not take direct responsibility for their actions. Their media relations officer Mike McCoy, stated, “We are working with store suppliers as well as law enforcement to dispose of the remaining contents of the store and secure the building.” Yet he also said that the food never belonged to SunTrust Bank.

There is no need to sugar coat what happened. Teresa Russell, chief deputy of the Marshal’s Office in Richmond County, said the owner of the building ordered that the food be taken to the landfill. Some people even followed the truck to the landfill and were still turned away.

In Richmond County, there are about 20 evictions per day, and the area surrounding the supermarket is one of the poorest in the state. According to the last available data, the poverty rate is 41 percent. Many people in that parking lot probably knew all too well how evictions work, and were in desperate need of the food assistance.

This story is not some bizarre exception. It reeks of the truth of capitalism and is strikingly similar to the H&;M scandal that broke in 2010 when clothes were being shredded before being thrown away, so as to make sure the value of the merchandise was unaffected.
In a capitalist society, the motive behind the production of food is not to feed people, housing is not made to give them shelter, clothing is not made to keep them warm, and health care is not offered primarily to keep people healthy. All of these things, which are and should be viewed as basic rights, are nothing other than commodities—to be bought and sold—from which to make a profit. If a profit cannot be made, usually due to overproduction in relation to the market, the commodity is considered useless by the capitalist and destroyed.
In this case, it appears the bank simply did not care. For the banks that have made their profits through evictions and foreclosures, it is little surprise that they showed no remorse in leaving people staring in disbelief, with empty bags, as they watched the food that could be feeding their families dumped into a landfill instead.
