Thanks for dropping by for Food For Thought January 29, 2016.  In these Friday updates I’ll share what is going on in exciting areas that I am exploring.

I accidentally developed a “Bad Breath Pill”:  Two years ago, I developed an Oral Probiotic to help people decrease the population of bad bacteria in their mouths which makes the whole body healthier.  The concept is logical.  You put friendly populations of good bacteria in a delicious tab and those good guys push out the bad guys.  I added two nutrients for increased gum health and have them made by a top-quality U.S. Pharmaceutical Lab. They are packaged individually to keep the bacteria alive and to negate the need for refrigeration.  My oral probiotics, called Replenish,  are excellent and have helped many people have healthy gum tissue.  What I wasn’t counting on is that they also freshen breath and that is the “side effect” that people love!  

Four Essential Oils that I always have nearby and travel with:

  1. Lavender – For relaxation (Dilute with a carrier oil like coconut or almond oil.)
  2. Eucalyptus – Stimulates immunity and improves respiratory circulation
  3. Tea Tree –  An antiseptic; also called Melaleuca Oil
  4. Arnica – For bumps,  bruises and sprains

If you’re not Gluten Free, try this delish rustic loaf from a new cookbook on my shelf called Cook Yourself Young:  

Butternut Squash Soda Bread

You will need:

  • 1.5 cups Butternut Squash:  peeled, deseeded, and roughly chopped
  • 2 cups Spelt Flour and a little more to dust pan
  • 1/4 cup rolled Oats
  • 2 tsp Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Himalyan Salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened, natural Yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Roast squash for 30 minutes until soft.  Mash and set aside to cool.
  3. Mix flour, oats, soda and salt.  Make a well in center and add the squash and yogurt.
  4. Stir lightly until it sticks together.
  5. Put into a buttered and floured baking pan. Roughly form into a round and make a crisscross on top with the handle of a wooden spoon.
  6. Bake 40-50 minutes until golden.  This is delicious warm, cold, toasted, with soup, without soup,  with butter, without butter….you get the point….

A quote to make you smile and think:

“A doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four.  Unless there are three other people.”  –Orson Welles
