I just made flaxseed muffins and each muffin has 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds or 4 T.  Four tablespoons should work out to almost 1 T of flaxseed oil.


Should be nice & moist!


Ruthie -- I've been wondering about liquid lecithin -- the granular kind is hard to incorporate without a using a blender.  Our local natural-foods market carries a lecithin powder that mixes into things a lot easier than the granules do.  It's just as easy to measure as the granules.

Is measuring the liquid lecithin something like measuring molasses?

It is a little thicker than molasses.  At least that is the way it seems to me.  I only use it in gravies or oatmeal that is being cooked.

John or anyone?

How much liquid lecithin should you put in your daily smoothie to get the great skin benefits?.  I bought mine awhile ago, but stopped using it soon after because i learned it was from soy and didn't think it was compliant for me.  I have recently read that dr. d says it's ok for O's.  Does anyone know how long it is good for?, mine doesn't have an expiration date on the bottle.

Thanks!
Mickey

Northernstars,

Thanks for posting your great progress!.  It sure is an inspiration and motivation for us BTDer's.  Even if i have been on it for awhile, i sometimes get off track (as in now) and need some motivation to get on track again!.  Sometimes when you've been at something for awhile you forget how much progress you've made, until you've gotten off track and then all the bad things come back to haunt you.

Keep up the great work!!!!  
Mickey

Hi, I went to that web site and would have to disagree. First off, yes they can go away as I am a testament of that. Nutrition certainly made a difference as I had nearly a dozen of those skin tags. It also made no reference one way or the other as to whether it is associated with diabetes or any other problem. I got my info from an ND.


Just because there isn't solid evidence doesn't mean it's not true.  It probably just hasn't been studied carefully enough.  I'll take your word for it if yours went away.  I had probably over a hundred on my neck that I had removed.  The MD told me that being overweight contributed, so there may be some dietary or hormonal connection that just hasn't been shown.  The NDs are often onto things way before the "proof" is there.  If diet will keep mine from coming back that's a great incentive for me.  If you have them you will always have a tendency to grow more.  I'm sure mine was due to UV exposure although there's no proof of that either.  In my work I used to take photos and examine specimens over a UV light.  We wore masks to protect our eyes and face, but my neck was exposed. I only had this large concentration of skin tags on the front of my neck.

Hi Mickey,

what lola says is fine .... anytime there is an oil with EFA's in them I find digestion is much improved with lecithin.  

A big help is to take some B vitamins with these (D. Rudin) ... nutritional yeast for winter and green salads for Spring and summer .....

Hey Northernstars,
I snuck both lecithin and flax oil into our smoothie last night, and it was a hit! My son said it tasted just like a shake! Hee, hee, hee!  My husband was feeling under the weather, so he didn't finish the whole thing, he put it in the fridge, and drank the rest a few hours later and no complaints! I went light on the flax oil so I could get them used to the taste, but I think the lecithin did act as a binder, and kept the oil from separating. Yippee! Thanks for the recipe!

Now, we'll have to see if the lecithin helps my husbands skin tabs, and my planters wart. Fun stuff, food as medicine!

dawgmama, you are right on with the comment about food as medicine.  Isn't it great???  If only more people would listen and then try the BTD.  Nothing in the smoothie disagrees with the basic principles of the BTD.  Put them all together and you have not just a great-tasting breakfast but a healing batch of food, too.  This is just too much fun...getting healthier while totally enjoying a great-tasting drink and eating wonderful and tasty foods.  That's the way it ought to be.  We got it.


The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself. Good health to you & yours.

Food is medicine.  Not only is it medicine, but it is much more powerful medicine than any expensive drugs will ever be.  Ever.

Food is the basic building blocks of our bodies.  If you don't build a good foundation, you will topple over, regardless of how many pills you pop.  Similarly, you wouldn't build your house out of cardboard, unless that was the only material available.
