America: Freedom to Fascism

imageWe have this idea that the government is looking out for us and exists for our benefit. I know enough about the FDA and CDC to know this is quite questionable. The idea that the IRS might also have problems didn’t come as much of a surprise to me. There is a LOT of corruption in our government I’m sad to say. There’s a lot of money in it so that explains why. Did you know we are not required by law to pay an income tax? It’s a shocker huh? I found this documentary to be very informative. As much as I don’t like politics I can’t ignore this issue. I’m currently working out what my role should now be as an American citizen.

America: Freedom to Fascism - Director’s Authorized Version

After watching the movie, I did some reading into this and apparently there have been many cases where people have been charged with “willful failure to file” and have been found “not guilty.” Then there are those that have been found “guilty” and have gone to prison. My question is, if the law is clear-cut about this, why are there mixed results in the courts? It’s enough reasonable doubt to make me very wary of the government’s authenticity.

Blueberry PIe

imageThis morning Emma & I went blueberry picking for the fourth time this summer. She begged me to make a blueberry pie, so I told her if she picked enough berries I would. I had already decided to make Haitian food tonight as a treat so the pie added one more treat to the evening!

For the pie crust I used the recipe in “Nourishing Traditions” by Sally Fallon. I can’t recommend this book enough! If you’re at all interested in eating healthily this book is a must read! Her pie crust recipe uses butter and egg yolk instead of shortening. I love this recipe because it’s healthier and much easier to roll out. 

Grape-sicles

Need a healthy, easy & cool summer snack? Grape-sicles are one of my favorites! Just throw some grapes (organic is best if you can find them, but if not try to stay away from grapes grown in Chile) in the freezer and by the next day you have frozen grape treats! This is an especially great treat for kids! I’m planning on saving some to eat during my home birth in November. Yum!

Cravings

Have you ever found yourself craving real healthy food after eating processed junk food for a time? That’s how I feel sometimes. Lately I haven’t set aside time to be with God. I’ve tried to go each day on my own steam. It doesn’t take long before I find my focus gets off and I race towards priorities that aren’t what I truly value. I get to this point where I literally CRAVE to be in God’s presence; I miss Him! It’s like I’ve been surviving on processed canned food and can’t take it any longer. While it doesn’t immediately kill me I certainly don’t thrive on it. This brings new meaning to the saying in the Bible

“Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to him.”
Psalm 34:8 (The Message)

This is SO true for me. He is SO good! Wholesome, tasty and satisfying food at last!
