Healthy Living With Nature
Start small. Put one thing into your life at a time. When you feel this has become part of your life and you can do it easily and you can see the benefit of what you are doing…. then start on a new thing- but not before it is part of your life.
More of the good stuff for Healthy Living.
On our journey we found it so important to stay HYDRATED. The optimum level of FILTERED water to consume is about 2 litres per person per day- plain filtered water. We use tank water which we filter twice to be sure we are getting the cleanest water possible, into our bodies.
WE STAY AWAY FROM COFFEE (and if we HAVE to DRINK COFFEE WE GRIND OUR OWN ORGANIC BREW AND PERCOLATE or STEEP IN A COFFEE POT ), ANY KIND OF SOFT DRINK, ALCOHOL. AND IF WE HAVE TO USE THESE THINGS WE CHOOSE ORGANIC.
If you want to get away from dairy it’s possible to make your own milk.
We started at first making OAT MILK which is supposed to be good for the heart. First we bought ready made, but once we realised we could make our own (and it is much cheaper) we moved to that. First we used organic ROLLED OATS. Then we found OAT GROATS at the ORGANIC SHOP.
To make the OAT MILK we needed a BLENDER
A NUT BAG
A GLASS JAR (to store the milk)
and a JUG to milk your liquid into.
We also needed 3/4 cup of organic rolled oats or oat groats (Soaked in your water for a short while before blending)
2 1/2 cups of filtered/ distilled/ tank/ water
Place all the ingredients into your blender
and blend until liquid
Pour this liquid into your nut bag
– and milk the liquid through the bag into your jug.
Place your milk into a glass jar for storing.Keep covered and refrigerate.
You will be left with solids. These can be recycled into curries, biscuits, cakes or into your smoothies
ORGANIC Almond, cashew coconut Milk (Flakes) can be made in the same way- Nuts to be soaked overnight and coconut flakes soaked in warm water.
We alternate the kind of milk we make. Any of these are very YUMMY. – just give a different taste to whatever you are using the milk for.
REMEMBER IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE SCRUPULOUSLY CLEAN.
It is important to use your milk quickly. It doesn’t keep for more than a couple of days. Fresh food, and made from scratch food creations, are always best eaten and not stored for long periods. This is so very important when eating “HEALTHILY!” THE FRESHER THE BETTER!
Fresh AIR keeps the head clear!
