The Wonders of Warm Water

Jan 22, 2015 0

Forget Energy Drinks.  Leave the Fad Diets in the dust.  The greatest wonder to our body is just a spigot away!  Water is your body’s natural fuel. Most of us start our mornings with a fresh, hot cup of coffee or tea to warm our bodies after getting out of bed. When we drink water, we tend to prefer it cold, but according to Ayurvedic medicine, we have it all wrong. Regularly drinking very warm water, especially in the morning, can heal our bodies, providing digestive power and reducing metabolic waste that could have built up in our immune system.

While drinking warm water may not suit your taste buds, it may be beneficial to put the caffeine and tea aside for your health’s sake. Our Editor, Connie Alsobrook, gives us the following reasons why:

1. Cleanses Digestion
A very warm cup of water in the morning can help cleanse your body by flushing out toxins. Water and other liquids help break down the food in your stomach and keep the digestive system on track. Warm water will help break down these foods even faster, making them easier for you to digest. Drinking cold water during or after a meal can actually harden the oil in consumed foods and therefore create a fat deposit in the intestine. Adding ice to processed cold water will strip it of natural-containing minerals as these minerals are essential to keeping the digestive tract healthy. Luckily, you can replace a glass of cold water with a warm one to aid digestion, especially after eating a meal.

2. Aids Constipation
At one point or another, many of us are plagued by this common stomach problem where we have little to no bowel movement. The strain felt during elimination, accompanied by bloating, is brought on by a lack of water in the body. Drinking very warm water in the morning on an empty stomach can help improve bowel movements and aid constipation while breaking down foods as they smoothly pass through the intestines. Stimulating the bowels will help return your body back to normal functioning.

3. Alleviates Pain
Warm water, considered to be nature’s most powerful home remedy, can help alleviate pain from menstruation to headaches. The heat from warm water is known to have a calming and soothing effect on the abdominal muscles, which can help provide instant relief for cramps and muscle spasms. According to Healthline.com, warm or hot water is usually better for cramps, as hot liquids increase blood flow to the skin and help relax the cramped muscles.

4. Sheds Those Extra Pounds
If you’re on a diet, chances are you’ve heard drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning can help with weight loss. Warm water increases body temperature, which therefore increases the metabolic rate. An increase in metabolic rate allows the body to burn more calories throughout the rate. It can also help the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys to function even better.

Physicians recommend drinking warm water in the morning, usually, with a polyphenol-rich lemon immersion, or with a tea shown to decrease free radical activity in the body. Drinking a glass of warm water and a lemon will help break down the adipose tissue, or body fat, in your body, and also control food craving due to lemon’s pectin fiber.

5. Improves Blood Circulation
The fat deposits in the body are eliminated along with accumulating deposits in the nervous system when you drink a glass of warm water. This flushes out the toxins that are circulating throughout the body and then enhances blood circulation. Making sure the muscles are relaxed will eliminate poor circulation and blood flow.

6. Prevents Premature Aging
Premature aging is a woman’s worst nightmare, but luckily, this can be prevented by drinking warm water. The presence of toxins in the body can lead to aging faster, but warm water can help cleanse the body from those toxins, while repairing skin cells to increase elasticity.

So, next time, ask for a glass of water with lemon… HOLD THE ICE, PLEASE!

ROASTED TURKEY

Nov 26, 2014 0

Buy the best quality turkey available (organic, free-range, read the ingredients carefully if you buy Butterball all natural make
sure there are no natural flavorings or chicken stock listed. Cook it breast-side down. I never stuff the turkey –
stuffing is cooked separately.
Frozen turkeys take at least 3-4 days to defrost in the refrigerator. When turkey is thawed remove the neck and giblets
(heart, gizzard, liver). Place the heart, neck and gizzard in the bottom of the roasting pan.
The night before, I brine the turkey in a stockpot filled with 2Tbs. Salt dissolved in water. If your turkey is not completely
covered in water, in the morning turn the turkey upside for 2 hours. (This process is optional – but I noticed the turkey
retains the juices). Rinse turkey completely and pat dry.
* Note that if your turkey comes with a plastic piece holding the legs together, replace with kitchen string to tie the legs together.


Ingredients
• 1 (9-12 pound) whole turkey
• ½ stick butter softened
• olive oil to spread on turkey
• 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
• 2 tablespoons dried chopped onion
• 1 teaspoon ground sage
• 2 Bay leafs
• 3 celery sticks cut-up
• 6 carrots cut-up
• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 cup orange juice
• 6 oz. orange marmalade
• 6 oz. Apricot preserves
• ½ cup water
• ½ cup liquid reserved from canned yams (optional)


Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
2. Clean turkey and place giblets and organs in a roasting pan.
3. Separate skin from turkey and spread the sage and butter and some of the chopped garlic under the skin, being careful not to puncture the skin. Spread any remaining butter on the turkey and in the cavity, season turkey with pepper and some paprika.
4. Combine orange marmalade, apricot preserves, chopped onion, orange juice, remainder of chopped garlic, ½ cup of liquid from canned yams, and water in 4 cup measuring cup. Mix well. Pour half of the mixture on the outside of the uncooked turkey. Pour ¼ cup of mixture and a cup of water into the bottom of the roasting pan, along with the hearts, gizzards and neck, celery and carrots. Add some water to pan.


Bake on 500 degrees F for ½ hour and then reduce temperature to 350 degrees F. Baste turkey with remaining mixture every ½ hour. If the juice on the bottom of pan evaporates, add remaining juice and some water a little at a time in between basting.
Cover with tin foil if turkey gets too brown on the drumsticks. Turkey should be done in 2½ to 3 hours, or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the thigh measures 180 degrees F. Remove bird from oven, and allow it to stand for about 10 minutes before carving.
