Add butter, Swerve, cinnamon and cayenne pepper to large sauce pan and heat on medium-high heat until the butter is browned well (just not burnt) and the Swerve is COMPLETELY melted. While this is cooking, spread your nuts evenly onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Pour your melted "sauce" over the nuts, sprinkle with pink salt & place in fridge and allow to cool & harden. Once your nuts harden, break into pieces and place in a decorative jar or small gift bags to make an adorable, healthy gift for Christmas, Easter, birthday parties, or just to keep on hand for your family!!
NOTE: This works better on a gas stove. If you use an electric stove, finding the balancing between melting the Swerve fully but not burning it is a bit tricky. If you make this and the sauce never hardens, you didn't cook it long enough. If it tastes burnt or gets black (instead of darker brown), then you went too long or had the heat too high.
The quickest way to make this tea is by using the 1/2 tsp of Pau d' Arco EXTRACT + 1.5 cups of hot water. If you have/prefer the bulk tea, simply follow the directions on the Pau d' Arco bulk tea container. If I'm using bulk tea, I make a big batch to have on hand for the week. Store it in the refrigerator and heat only what you need. Do not use a microwave for re-heating. It kills all the medicinal benefits of any food or herb.
Juice your ginger and add immediately to the hot tea (ginger settles quickly and you don't want to lose the most nutritious part). If I'm feeling sick or run down, I juice a bunch of ginger and store it in the fridge for up to 1 week in a small glass jar so that I can make this tea quickly with the hot water and pau d' arco extract. Be sure to shake the juiced ginger well to dissolve the sediment at the bottom of the jar before adding it to your Immuni-tea.
Heat your mixture on the stove top, as needed. Add the remaining ingredients (lemon, vinegar and honey) to the hot mixture so that the honey dissolves quickly. Stir well and enjoy!
BENEFITS: This tea is a POWERFUL antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal, immune builder, cough suppressant, cancer killer, energy booster, cellular detoxifier, liver cleansing cuppa yum yum!! This recipe is great for any cold/flu/cough/Candida Detox or most other illnesses :)
Yes it is safe for pregnancy or nursing mommies, as well. It's just whole foods & Pau-D' arco tea ;) FOOD is MEDICINE. And God knows what He's doing! It significantly helped me fight off a cold/cough during my pregnancy! It's also ideal for preventing/healing Group B Strep infections in pregnant women ;)
*This tea is spicy! The heat is very soothing to a sore throat but you may want to adjust the amount of ginger to your palate. We like it hot! Use a diluted version for kids.
**Ginger tends to settle quickly to the bottom so you will need to stir as you drink it or you will end up with a very hot/spicy ginger shot at the end.
***This tea is also great at room temp, chilled or iced!
GLUTEN & DAIRY-FREE CLAM CHOWDER THAT IS ALSO CANDIDA-DETOX FRIENDLY …WHAT??! Yep. You're welcome ;)
THIS CHOWDER IS BOMB & I am so thanking the Lord for downloading this recipe into my head!!
2 large celery roots (replaces potatoes)
5 Tbsp Grass-fed butter or coconut oil
5 stalks celery
1 white onion
10 whole carrots (I prefer extra)
4, 6.5-oz cans clams (Trader Joe's)
3, 14-oz cans unsweetened coconut milk (can sub 1 for coconut cream)
1 Tbsp Celtic sea salt (or pink sea salt to taste)
2 tsp white pepper
3 drops Nature's Sunshine Wild Thyme Essential Oil (1 Tbsp dried thyme)
Dice your celery root, onion, celery, and carrots. I use a food processor. Next, add your diced veggies to a pan w butter to saute'e on medium heat until the onions are translucent. Cook until the celery root and carrots are slightly soft if you don't have a full 4+ hours to cook in the crock pot. While your veggies are cooking, chop your clams if you bought whole clams. Then add all your cooked veggies, clams and all other ingredients to a large crock pot. Cook on low at least 4 hours, and serve!
Don’t forget to add a heaping spoonful of coconut oil to your bowl of soup for added daily nutrition/medicine.
NOTE: Potatoes are no bueno if you are or recently have been on a Candida Detox; Whether you're a patient or not, I highly recommend doing my free, quick, at-home Candida Spit Test to see if you might have an underlying Candida albicans (yeast) overgrowth problem you didn't know about. MOST people do/did at one point & this is very serious. IF SO, you really need to avoid grains, potatoes & sugar in any form UNTIL this is under control & make an appointment with me or another holistic Doctor to get this under control (PRAY & ask the LORD who can truly help you. There's LOTS of confusing info out there).
This was my personal battle, as well as at least 80% of the patients I have the honor of helping. It is at the root of ALL your other health problems if you have this. You must KNOW Candida overgrowth is WELL under control before adding potatoes back into your diet as they are very starchy and break down into sugar, and sugar feeds yeast/fungus. God made that rule, not me. sorry. It’s not worth the setback, and Lord knows most of us could use far less sugar/starch in our diet.
I sure do LOVE a good bowl of chunky clam chowder, but I never eat it at restaurants because it is loaded with dairy, gluten (my body feels AWFUL with gluten) & all kinds of other garbage.
