Oh, my goodness.  So much time on the phone this week with dear people talking … ecstatic about the socks and so grateful for the tea.

You can read our story about Delores, 81, whose brother Richard (unbelievably young at 87) shared the socks with her over Memorial Day weekend.  (The cute photo of her was in her younger years, but that sparkle is still there!) She’s been wearing a surgical brace and using a cane for the last 3-4 years after a terrible complex ankle fracture.  Her doctors have been wanting to do reconstructive surgery the whole time, but she feels she’s too old for that.  Would you believe … after putting on the socks, she walked unaided for the rest of the weekend and left the brace at Richard’s when it was time to go home several days later?!?!  She’s gone for three weeks without either! You can read her whole story HERE.

My friend Sandra, whose story I told you with her awful glue-gun burn that turned into a wound, visited me this week. She was marveling about how the tea had helped her, lamenting that she didn’t just start out with it from the day of the burn.  She also gave the tea the perfect name:  “The Poor Man’s Solution.” “People with no money need to  know that a package of tea placed on a wound heals the best and the fastest!  It saves on doctor trips and medicine! I delayed going to the doctor because of the expense.  It got so much worse. Even after visiting the doctor, what finally did the trick was the tea!”

Then she texted me later saying, “People who don’t heal well, who have compromised health, NEED to know about this. Carolyn, it’s a humanitarian mission for you!”  I appreciate that …. and the tea bags that helped her serious burn/wound finally heal.

Wow!!

Get Ready For A Dog Photo Contest!  YES, it’s true :0)  We’ve got the video all ready and it’s hilarious … all for Dr. Miller’s new pet vitamins!  We’ll include the details next week.  But you’re the first to know!  Winners will receive Amazon gift cards and have their dog’s photo included in the next video.  PRETTY FUN!

Father’s Day Chocolate Banana Muffin Recipe

As you know, we’re 85-90% whole food, plant based eaters.  The 10-15% percent that we’re not is when we socialize with others and special occasions.

I don’t do nearly the baking I used to do with our family grown and gone and how our eating has changed, but still you “need” these treats!

We usually have bananas at all stages of ripeness for eating.  We freeze them when they get overly ripe for baking and smoothies.

Vegan and whole-food plant based baking often means very basic ingredients that go together quickly. No eggs and whole wheat flour makes baked products heavy and much more filling than with white flour.  We’ve become very fond of these heavier muffins, pancakes, etc.
