Tiger’s/Dragon’s Blood Icee

Ingredients for Dragons/Tigers blood popsicles

Hey, How’s it going? I have been trying to eat clean. Over the summer I found an Italian ice that RaceTrac sold and really liked it. Well the sugar was really high and the process well who really knows how they made it. The picture that they had to explain it … A slice of watermelon. a strawberry, and I seem to recall a lime or coconut maybe both. So off I went to recreate the taste I liked so well.

Success!!!
I added fresh stevia from my garden which I had dried and powdered.  I poured it into Popsicle form and froze. Now I can have my treat (and it is healthy as well as yummy) any time I want it.

To eat it watching this sunset… Who could ask for more!!!

Picture perfect day. Thank You god for loving me so much and blessing me more than I deserve.
Also a side note to this the watermelon rind (with outer skin removed, if it is waxed and to reduce chemical consumption if not organic) is great to put through the juicer. Much like a cucumber with way more vitamin content… Take a look at what doctors say…

Watermelon contains more of the antioxidant lycopene than fresh tomatoes; one cup of watermelon has 1.5 times the lycopene as a raw tomato

L-citrulline, an amino acid in watermelon, seems to protect against muscle pain

Watermelon rind is edible and actually contains more of the amino acid citrulline than the pink flesh; citrulline is converted to arginine in your kidneys, which is important for heart and immune system health

New research showed citrulline and arginine supplements derived from watermelon extract lead to significant improvements in blood pressure and cardiac stress in obese study participants

Watermelon contains cucurbitacin E, or tripterpenoid, which blocks the activity of the pain and inflammation-causing enzyme cyclooxygenase — the same enzyme blocked by COX-2 inhibitor drugs

I went through at least one a week all summer boy am I gonna miss them til they are in season. Although I have a plant started in the yard. I have noticed it is getting harder all the time to find them with seeds still. GRRRRRRR GMO’s Well, I can’t fix the world I guess I will just keep trying my best and wait upon the Lord!!!

New day, Another chance

watermelon alternative
It is cucumber and green apple slices. together they have a slightly watermelon taste. While I am not saying watermelon is bad for you this is better less sugar alternative. Cucumber is very alkaline and there is very low sugar content in the green apple. I love these dipped in hummus or a great avocado tzatziki sauce which I have shared before. Enjoy trying this and if you do let me know what you thought about it. Both are also good with an almond butter. Be careful out there with your purchase of almond butter they like to hide sugar there.

Watermelon Pizza

Finished

Watermelon Pizza

Hello, Here is a great 4th of July cool down dessert. You can have the slices and toppings ready and do a build your own or I just went ahead and made them up. One for a friend, One to bring to my Mom’s and One for me to have here. So I had the containers ready to go, and built them right in the container. Now looking back I know that you should cut them ahead of putting them in the container, because when you cut you end up marking the container.

The process begins

20140630 043

Squeeze mango seed to juice like a sauce Then the strawberry pepperoni and Blueberry olives.

I took the seed of the mango after cutting off most of the meat and squeezed some juices on the watermelon to look like a sauce. Next slice up the strawberries and spread them like pepperoni, The blueberries I used like olives however if you cut them they look great too, as you can see in the picture. I tried all different ways on the three of the pizzas so it really is a any way you want kinda thing.  I sliced mango and put it on before the other fruit and I liked it that way best.20140630 046 20140630 044
Yum Top it with some shredded coconut to look like the cheese. And all good cooks know it is not finished til you add the herbs and spices. O:) For that out to the garden to pick some mint and stevia. Sprinkle those on top and spritz with lemon juice. This is great served chilled. But I have to say they are good any way but… BEST Shared with friends!!!
Marly Bombo and his fruit stand

Update on the workout

Heat Car

Hot with the Heat

Heat before Loss

So this is before the Loss

I am not laughing that would cause a lot of my friends and family distress. But the title fits for the car and me. We are bothon our way to losing. The Heat lost the Championship to the spurs and I have lost 7 lbs. You really don’t see the loss of seven pounds but you feel it. I feel great and even though it is not a visual weight loss yet. I know it and feel it.  We have been stopping at a great fruit stand here in Miami. If you are near downtown you gotta swing in to see Bombo. We get a coco frio after working out at the gym. Here are two cards from those places

Buisness Cards

Come visit Sister Charmaine

Must stop @ Bombo’s

More to come I am bringing Bombo my fruit pizza…
Life is great full of adventures and great people to meet. God loves us all. There is little time to tell them about Jesus. Even when they don’t at first except Him at first… it is not you they are pushing away. Keep going and keep Showing Jesus’ Love. You see the at first back there. Your love can sway a heart to know the Lord. Your smile and friendship maybe the only Bible they see. If it is His will God will complete the work you start in Jesus Name.
