WOW! Would you like a 3-Month Supply of Tea? If you live in the Salt Lake City-
Bountiful-Provo corridor of Utah, I’d love to help you with a tea party to share the tea with friends and family! And give you a 3-month supply of tea for the fun of it all. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello and Happy March! “In like a lion” is absolutely correct with the heavy rains we’ve had and more very serious storms around the country. Stay safe, dear tea friends! We’re glad to see lots of emerging green and know that Spring is close :0)
I hope you had some fun this past week. Our favorite laugh-out-loud this week came from an unexpected source … an obituary that’s gone viral. Maybe you’ve seen it, but if not — please take time for this! It’ll definitely give you a smile and a lift. It might also give you a lot to seriously think about, as it has us. This is a hoot!
After last week’s newsletter, I watched another couple of Chris Wark’s great videos for health and cancer recovery, including one where he fixed black bean and sweet potato burritos for his family. That inspired us to get out our favorite recipe for that … and to head to the store for the finishing flavor on this yummy dish: CILANTRO. (It’s a weird combination, but so delicious!)
Those great burritos inspired us to read up on CILANTRO! By golly, it’s a rocket fuel of nutrients and if you love it, we’ve even learned a way to keep it fresh in the refrigerator without getting slimy in the bag :0) Read on!
Please enjoy today’s newsletter with the recipes and cool stuff on CILANTRO, and have a great weekend!

After last week’s newsletter on cancer, I just want to make sure that everyone knows how helpful the tea is for dealing with the side effects of chemo — or any heavy pharmaceutical drug for that matter. This email from a year or so ago means the world to us!
“Dear Carolyn: I have been on the tea for about four months and I want you to know it got me through chemo beautifully. It un-impacted my intestines and I avoided the hospital for that. I recently had a third mammogram and the results were all clear. I attribute this to God first and secondly to being detoxed daily through the tea.”
We must always repeat, as we do on our packaging, that the tea is not FDA approved and that we cannot promote it to treat or diagnose any disease, but it sure is neat to know that people cherish it and give it credit!
Socks and Detox Parties! Schedule Now for March 23-April 6!
It’s time for “DETOX and SOX” parties! Would you like to host one? And receive free tea? We would come to YOUR home and bring everything for a really fun hour or so where we’d present both the tea and the socks. Of course we’d have samples for everyone to try and enjoy.

All we would ask is that you have at least 6-8 people present, ready to spend an hour to have fun with us talking about the tea and the socks.

Woohoo! Good times ahead!
It was so funny — our daughter Emily texted us her sweet potato and black bean burrito recipe the day after we made ours, with the message “This is one of our favorites … you should try it!” We texted back that we were sitting down to leftovers! So we’re not the only ones who love this unusual dish.
When I told Emily about the Cilantro health benefits, she said: “The only problem with it is that it goes bad so fast in the fridge.”
Our research and the article we found has the answer. This trick WORKS so cilantro can last up to 10 days!
Here’s how: Buy the bunch at the store and rinse it off in the sink when you get home. Shake off excess water. Then put it upright in a container that has 2-3 inches of water. Put a plastic bag over the top. Then keep it in the fridge. I did it immediately and found the perfect spot is in a side shelf of the fridge door.
After reading the benefits, I’ve started munching on a bit of it every morning along with the handful of spinach I eat on the way to the gym. It’s rather a tasty little mini-salad that starts the day right! Here are the recipes and the article.
The info on CILANTRO … for the whole article from Dr. Josh Axe
Fabulous Sweet Potato Enchiladas
1/2 cup vegetable broth divided (I use veggie bouillon cubes)
1 medium onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tsp. garlic powder)
1 tsp. coriander (don’t opt on this — it’s delicious!)2 tsp. cumin (if desired)
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 can refried black beans
4 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
3 cups cooked, chopped sweet potatoes
(We usually do these in the steamer — way less work! Cut in quarters and peel after cooking … or boil if you don’t have a steamer.
10 large tortillas
Garnish: Salsa, lots of cilantro, fresh lime juice, cumin.
1) Heat 2 Tbsp. of the veggie broth in a medium-sized skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook a nd stir until onion is transluscent. Add coriander and cumin.
2) Add remaining vegetable broth, spinach, the refried black beans, and sweet potatoes. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
3) Warm the tortillas in a large skillet by flipping them on each side at medium high heat. Add the sweet potato and black bean mixture. Fold in thirds, and serve!
4) Let everyone garnish however they’d like with lots of salsa, cilantro, and fresh squeezed lime juice.
FAVORITE BLACK BEAN SOUP
This is so easy that we should all be enjoying it frequently!
2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
2 Veggie bouillon cubes
2 cups of water
1 medium chopped onion
1 Tsp. garlic powder
Cooked brown rice
In a large saucepan, blend all ingredients but rice. Gently bring to a boil and let it cook at a medium heat until the onions are cooked.
Serve with a scoop of brown rice and garnish with CILANTRO and lime juice. We like to even finely chop up the lime and add it for an extra burst of flavor.
We enjoyed our black beans and cilan tro so much that Bob said, “Are there health benefits to it?” Wow, are there ever!
The first google search picked up our friend Dr. Josh Axe’s website.
