Toss Viagra, Try Zinc

Friday, July 11th, 2008

copyright 2008 The Bettina Network, inc.

We had a very exciting breakfast – some would think it was x-rated, but it was a family-friendly discussion.

Apparently, the power of zinc is beginning to circulate. I thought we knew all there was to know about nutrition, vitamins, etc. but this bit of knowing was new to us. It can be a bit disconcerting when you realize you don’t know it all!!!

A couple people at the breakfast table talked about how they discovered, in the process of taking zinc lozenges to get rid of a cold, or to dampen its horrid impact on the body, that they had interesting side affects. Not realizing exactly what caused those side affects, they experimented with several things they had been eating and much to their surprise it was the zinc lozenges. At this point, the breakfast table broke up into peals of laughter.

Much to our surprise, a quiet voice, from a woman at the end of the table verified that she also had the same experience and having tried it over and over again, the results were always predictable. She decided to take away her husbands viagra and substitute zinc. She did and he didn’t notice the difference.

Could this be a great new scientific breakthrough? Or has this been known for hundreds of years only to be hidden from this current generation! Have we discovered something new or did our table talk rediscover what was generally known before we became so alienated from one another?

I hope this knowledge doesn’t result in zinc being taken off the market the way the effectiveness of almonds was destroyed through that pasteurization process.

New Findings on Baking Bread

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

copyright 2008 The Bettina Network, inc.

Much to our surprise we discovered dramatic differences when baking bread by simply changing the oil we use. Different oil combinations will change the texture of the bread. By being careful what you add it also changes the goodness the bread delivers to your body. And – I will quietly say – it keeps you regular, which has to do good things for your immune system.

We started using Virgin Organic Coconut Oil in other recipes and decided to try it in the Bettina Bread Recipe. We first tried half butter and half VOCO. That was fantastic. The bread was light, but thick with no big holes as you slice it. Its consistency was amazing and the texture quite wonderful.It was really great when we tried 1/2 cup organic butter (one stick) and 1/4 cup VOCO. Totally amazing with 1/2 cup each, but that’s a stretch for a lot of you – only the dedicated need try those proportions.

Using organic apple juice plus the VOCO and organic butter produced a much lighter bread and still that wonderful texture.

Throw in raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, organic turbinado sugar – wow, how fabulous with coffee in the mornings. Put some organic butter on that bread and it warrants quiet time to enjoy a bit of heaven!

No more white flour – water – and salt bread for us. Just think of the nutrition our ancestors got from bread. No wonder it was called the “staff of life.” Didn’t understand that saying until we started experimenting to produce a loaf of bread that was great tasting and good for us.
