Singing, Asthma & Coconut Mayo

Palm Sunday Concert 2011

Singing in ensemble at the Spring Luncheon for Women In The Church. Don’t know what we’re singing. Don’t know who else is singing. Don’t know if we’re leading singing or singing by ourselves. I guess I will find out when I get to church.

Did you know that singing is good for you? Especially if you have health challenges like asthma, cancer, depression. Filling your lungs to capacity, then slowly letting the air out – singing – increases the oxygen in your bloodstream: cancer doesn’t like oxygen-rich environments, neither does depression. Filling your lungs to capacity opens up the lungs to the bases – anti-asthma, anti-pneumonia, too! Filling your lungs to capacity then opening your mouth & making a musical tone emerge lightens your spirit, thus anti-depression.

Sing in the shower. Sing in the car. Sing in the house. Sing on your walk with your dog. Sing!

“There’s within my heart a melody…”

Coconut Mayo

Studies are showing that children with asthma cut their emergency room visits to almost zero by increasing the good fat in their diets. That’s it, just increasing the fat! So, if your kid/grandkid suffers from asthma, add an extra tablespoon of coconut oil to their oatmeal on the morning & a tablespoon of good butter to their rice/pasta/bread at dinner. Won’t hurt ’em; may help tremendously!

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh Whey (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Combine the eggs, mustard, lemon juice, salt & white pepper in blender or food processor.
  2. With blender/food processor running on a low speed, pour in oils in a thin stream.
  3. Add whey.
  4. Place in refrigerator to thicken.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks; 1 month with whey added.
