Whether you scramble them, fry them or bake them in a quiche, eggs are an all-natural food with a laundry list of health benefits. Eggs remain a healthy choice even for those concerned about their cholesterol levels.
Inflammation– Eggs are a rich source of the B vitamin choline. In addition to helping your body produce new cell membranes and healthy nerves, choline can reduce chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation occurs when your body’s natural healing process goes haywire. Instead of healing, inflammation wreaks havoc on your body –increasing the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Protein– Getting enough protein is essential for health. Dietary protein builds muscle, boosts the immune system and allows for healthy skin and nails. However, not all protein is created equal. Certain sources of protein are highly utilized by the body while others are not.
Weight Loss- Trading in your morning breakfast of cereal and a bagel in favor of eggs can accelerate weight loss. In a study published in the October 2008 issue of “International Journal of Obesity,” 150 men and women dieters were assigned a breakfast either with or without eggs. The group that started their day off with two eggs lost 65 percent more weight than the non-egg eating group. The researchers hypothesize that the protein in the eggs helped curb the dieters’ appetites throughout the day.
Degeneration- Macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. Eggs are bursting with a pair of nutrients — lutein and zeaxanthin — which protect your eyes from damage caused by free radicals and sunlight exposure. In a study conducted by researchers at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and published in the October 2006 issue of the “Journal of Nutrition,” subjects who consumed just one egg per day significantly boosted the levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in their blood.
A flavorful addition to many dishes, the versatile onion is low in calories and provides healthy phytochemicals, flavonoids, sulfur compounds and heart-healthy allicin. Onions rank sixth among the world’s leading vegetable crops; approximately 7 percent grown are red onions. Red onions have a sweet mild flavor and can be added to stews, soups, cooked vegetables or sauces.
Mushrooms are big favorites of mine, but if you’re just starting to learn about their medicinal properties, I don’t blame you for being confused about which ones are, or aren’t, good for you. Mushrooms have been used for thousands of years both as food and for medicinal purposes. They are often classified as a vegetable or a herb, but they are actually fungi. Today, mushrooms are enjoyed for their flavor and texture. They can impart their own flavor to food or take on the flavor of other ingredients. Their flavor normally intensifies during cooking, and their texture holds up well to usual cooking methods, including stir-frying and sauteing. t was already known that mushrooms offer high-quality protein, vitamins, unsaturated fatty acids and fiber, but a precise carbohydrate breakdown had been elusive. Mushrooms are low in calories, high in fiber, and contain many important vitamins and minerals. Some also have medicinal properties such as complex carbohydrates that strengthen the immune system.
Why are edible mushrooms considered a healthy food? In terms of nutrition they contain:
- Protein – Most mushrooms have a high protein content, usually around 20-30% by dry weight. This can be useful for vegetarians or anyone looking to increase the protein content in their diet.
- Fiber – Helps lower cholesterol and is important for the digestive system.
- Niacin and other important B vitamins – As certain B vitamins are found in animal tissue but not plants, this can be another good supplement for vegetarians.
- Vitamin D – Essential for the absorption of calcium.
- Copper – Aids in helping the body absorb oxygen and create red blood cells.
- Selenium – An antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals, thus preventing cell damage and reducing the risk of cancer and other diseases. Mushrooms contain more selenium than any other form of produce.
- Potassium – An extremely important mineral that regulates blood pressure and keeps cells functioning properly. A large portobello mushroom is said to have more potassium than a banana.
- Other important minerals – Such as phosphorous, zinc, and magnesium.
- Low levels of fat, calories, and sodium
- No cholesterol
Yet the nutritional value of mushrooms can be measured in more ways than just strictly dietary. Further health benefits are gained from:
- Polysaccharides – Complex carbohydrates that stimulate the immune system.
- Enzyme inhibiting activity – Mushrooms can inhibit the production of certain enzymes such as aromatase, which the body uses to make estrogen. This could reduce the risk of breast cancer.
- Triterpenes – Steroid-like molecules that inhibit histamine release and have anti-inflammatory properties.
Not all types of mushrooms have the same levels of vitamins, minerals, and medicinal properties. Do a little research if you have special health needs or goals. Of course, don’t forget to take taste into account!
Steel Cut Oatmeal-fresh bananas, frozen blue berries, cinnamon, soy with a dash of pure vanilla extract
Prepare this morning to soften and soak therefore; the fruit supplies it own sugar for true flavor.
Not all oatmeal is created equal. When you shop for oatmeal, you will find different types — some of which are not much better in a nutritional sense than eating a bowl of highly refined cold cereal. Rolled oats are the most common type of oatmeal. They are produced when the oat groat is mashed into a thin sheet by a huge roller. “Instant” rolled oats are prepared in much the same way, only they are subjected to additional grinding to further break down the fiber. In comparison, the oat groat in steel-cut oats is merely cut into two or three pieces. Rolled oats are often sold with added sugar and artificial colorings and flavorings, while steel-cut oats are not.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the Lord, who spake unto the Lord the words of this song in the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,
1 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. 2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and mydeliverer ; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust ; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation,and my high tower. 3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised : so shall I be savedfrom mine enemies . 4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly menmade me afraid . 5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about : the snares of death prevented me.6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of histemple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 7 Then the earth shook and trembled ; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken , because he was wroth . 8 There wentup a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured : coals were kindled by it. 9 Hebowed the heavens also, and came down : and darkness was under his feet. 10 And he rodeupon a cherub, and did fly : yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed , hail stones and coals of fire. 13 TheLORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals offire. 14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, anddiscomfited them. 15 Then the channels of waters were seen , and the foundations of the worldwere discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. 16 He sent fromabove, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy , and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. 18 They prevented me in theday of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. 19 He brought me forth also into a large place;he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 20 The LORD rewarded me according to myrighteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. 21 For I havekept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. 22 For all hisjudgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me. 23 I was also uprightbefore him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity. 24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. 25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful ; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright ; 26With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure ; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward . 27For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. 28 For thou wilt light mycandle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. 29 For by thee I have run through a troop;and by my God have I leaped over a wall. 30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of theLORD is tried : he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. 31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? 32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my wayperfect. 33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places. 34 Heteacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. 35 Thou hast alsogiven me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up , and thy gentlenesshath made me great . 36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip . 37 I have pursued mine enemies , and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they wereconsumed . 38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise : they are fallen under myfeet. 39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. 40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies ; that I mightdestroy them that hate me. 41 They cried , but there was none to save them: even unto theLORD, but he answered them not. 42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets. 43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of thepeople; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shallserve me. 44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submitthemselves unto me. 45 The strangers shall fade away , and be afraid out of their close places.46 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted . 47 It isGod that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me. 48 He delivereth me from mineenemies : yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. 49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen,and sing praises unto thy name. 50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercyto his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
REV Dr Martin Luther King Jr
The I Have a Dream…….
I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense we have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.
As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied, as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating “For Whites Only”. We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.
Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.
I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.”
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
