The Vegan Diet: Day 11

THANK YOU for all your support, tips, and suggestions!  Keep it coming!!!  (I'm off to go make a banana smoothie.)

Best food item:  Toast for breakfast.  GH 9-grain bread, slathered with honey, and then caked with cinnamon.  Read below for many ideas of why the honey + cinnamon combination is magic (uber healthy and curative.)

Off diet:  Welllll.  I realized today that Ranch dressing has eggs in it.  There are minor vegan diet compromises everywhere.  I'm not willing to worry about said minute portions of egg in my diet; it's not as though I'm eating a 4-egg omelet like I would have before.  That's not the point.
I craved a corndog today.  Fried, yummy, fatty.  Mmmmm.  Mouth is watering just thinking about it.
I purchased more high quality extra dark chocolate today.  It's a matter of survival, and has a teeeeeny amount of sugar.  Which means it's on diet.  :)

Pain level:  Tolerable.  I had a massage this evening.  Hopefully this time I will not be in great pain tomorrow as happened last week.

Honey:  Absolutely the best food ever.  Survey of the oldest people alive showed one commonality:  They were often beekeepers.  They ate honey.  I guess the Bible is right on this one!

Below is a long list of what its qualities are...Fair warning - It's a copy + paste on an email regarding Cinnamon + Honey.  I have no idea how much of it is true.

Cinnamon and Honey
Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do  what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey  is always honey.. However, when left in a cool  dark place for a long time it will do what I  rather call "crystallizing" . When this happens I  loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey  container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave.. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Cinnamon and Honey

It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.  Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:


Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada , various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.


Arthritis patients may
 take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot
 water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon
of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic
arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted
at the Copenhagen University, it was found that
when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture
of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon
powder before breakfast, they found that within
a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically
73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within
a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk
or move around because of arthritis started walking
 without pain.


Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.


Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three
times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.


Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.


Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.


Daily use of honey
and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system
and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.
Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins
and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey
strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight
bacterial and viral diseases.


Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food
 relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Tea made with honey and
 cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the
 ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one
 spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water
 and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to
 four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft
 and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and
 even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores
 of a 20-year-old.

Three tablespoons of honey  and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste.. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.


Applying honey and
cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts
cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.


Daily in the morning one
 half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach,
 and at night before sleeping, drink honey and
 cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If
 taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the
 most obese person... Also, drinking this mixture
 regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in
 the body even though the person may eat a high
 calorie diet.


Recent research in Japan
 and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of
 the stomach and bones have been cured successfully.
Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should
daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon
of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

Recent studies have shown
 that the sugar content of honey is more helpful
 rather than being detrimental to the strength of
 the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and
 cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and
 flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says
 that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass
 of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken
 daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about
 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to
 decrease, increases the vitality of the body
 within a week.


People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot  water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.


Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!
