Hot Dogs & Eggs

When I was younger my mom use to fry up hot dogs split in half and create a sandwich. Such memories, I also remember eating eggs with ketchup, really? I did that? This morning I wanted something different, so I decided to fry up some hot dogs with onions and add some eggs.

About the Meat

While I am a meat eater I do not want any animal to live a horrible life, be treated cruely, eat something other than the natural vegetation they were created to it, or die in a inhumane way. It is for this reason that I learn everything I can about where my meat is coming from and all of the above. We usually buy Organic Prarie, but they were out, so we bought Hebrew Nation instead. 

Hebrew Nation is kosher which if you know anything about kosher is just as good as organic. They have a great taste, are pricy, but sometimes Target has them on sale, so I keep my eyes for that. Okay let's get cooking

Ingredients

Butter
Onion
Hot dog or dogs
3 - 4 Eggs
Seasonings of choice I used pepper, garlic, dill, and paprika


What To Do

While you dice the onions get the butter melted, toss in the onions, and let them cook as you cut up the dog/dogs then toss those puppies in. Let them cook until they brown on each side, add the eggs, seasoning, and chow down.









Have you ever had fried hot dogs?
What else would you add to this dish?

Ear Seeds for Auriculotherapy

While I was on Twitter one day I noticed a tweet on ear seeds. My curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out what they were. Auriculotherapy could be described as reflexology for the ear. Just as the bottom of our feet and the palms of hands have points that lead to other parts of the body, so does the ear.

                                                  About The Founders


Earseeds.com is a family owned business started by Licensed Acupuncturist Elie Goldschmidt and his wife, Tova Gold.
Elie was looking for a way to manage his back pain. He knew acupuncture could help but wasn’t capable of needling himself. Although ear seeds, used in auriculotherapy, wasn’t a major part of his acupuncture practice, he’d always been fascinated with auriculotherapy.
After seeing pictures of actress Penelope Cruz and Matt Damon wearing ear seeds for stress and back pain, and hearing Dr. Oz discuss the benefits of ear seeds on his show, he figured they might work for him too.
Almost immediately upon applying the ear seeds Elie felt a difference in his back and a release of the pain.
After experiencing such positive results from auriculotherapy for his back pain, Elie knew he wanted to find a way to share the benefits of ear seeds with the masses. While a full acupuncture treatment that includes auriculotherapy is ideal, it can be costly and time prohibitive. Elie knew that the seeds alone could make a big difference for so many people, as it did for him.
Meanwhile, Tova, a veteran branding expert and product designer, was skeptical, but agreed to try the stress protocol. She was blown away by the tangible response she had. General calm replaced a racing mind and she found it increased her ability to focus and concentrate. After learning more about Auriculotherapy and Ear Acupressure, Tova agreed to come on board. Just a few months after Elie conceived the idea, the couple launched EarSeeds.com.



Earseeds Podcast 

On Friday May 27, 2016 we will be talking with Tova and hopefully Elie will be able to join us at some point. Join us via Wolf Spirit Radio to discuss ear seeds, how they work, the seeds they use, and more from 6 - 8 pm central.

If you know of someone who would benefit from this podcast please share. Check out our "Podcasts" page for previous podcasts.

Finding the Forgotten Child


I wonder how many of us have current issues in our lives and don't connect with past events from childhood? I know I didn't, not until I started talking with Jay Pee. Jay Pee aids individuals with getting in touch with their forgotten child to heal current issues they may be dealing with. Those issues can be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.  

Ever since I was about 9 or 10 I had leg pains, bad leg pains. My mom use to massage my calfs for me at times because the pain was so bad. I can remember the pain just from her massaging them use to cause me to twist and turn. Jay Pee had me get in touch with the little girl who went through all that pain. 

I started talking to him about how my dad didn't like to be disturbed when he watched TV and little things would get someone yelled at. Due to this as this young girl sitting on the couch I would move very slowly, like inch by inch so I wouldn't get yelled at. This caused tension in my body and specifically my legs. My dad also worked nights and to get to the bathroom we had to go through a hallway that shared my parents bedroom. Well the floors would creek and he would yell at the perpetrator. By tip toeing through the hallway I found that the floor didn't creek. This also caused tension in my legs from trying to be so careful while scared at the same time. We also uncovered the fact that I remembered my  dad complaining about leg pains. He was born with cerebral palsy and even though he went through many surgeries as a child he still experienced pain in his right leg.

That was not the only forgotten child I encountered, but was the one that made a big difference in my life. You see even as an adult I would always have leg pains, it seemed to be mainly right before a rain. After my session with Jay Pee and talking about my situation with my dad the leg pains stopped. I can not remember the last time I had those unexplained leg pains.

Jay Pee explained to me that our bodies hang on to various episodes in our lives. These often lead to issues you may experience either physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. If someone is having issues in any of these areas and has tried to deal with them to no avail I suggest contacting Jay Pee at Ever Beyond Radio. He also has a variety of other services he offers, so be sure to check those out as well.

Hey Where Are You?

That's what I'm thinking where am I. For 9 years I have been blogging and it seems these days there just isn't time. The main reason is that I am a natural living researcher and it takes me hours to do adequate research and write a post.

Where I am


Heavenly Bodies Organic Skin Care

Currently I am busy promoting my organic skin care products "Heavenly Bodies." We now have 4 products and we are busy getting them out so others can enjoy them and reap their benefits as we have. Last weekend we were in New Orleans at the Veggie Fest. I spent the whole week before the fest preparing products. All this week has been spent playing catch up from time lost the previous week. I have scheduled a promotional event at a local health store that is interested in selling our products. 


It's Your Life Magazine


The It's Your Life magazine has suffered due to lack of funds, but yet a passion that stills burns deep inside to somehow keep it going. We  are getting ready to release what is suppose to be our last digital issue. The website will become the platform for anyone who wants to contribute to helping others live a happy, healthy, natural life. I'm thinking I'd like to try just doing two issues a summer and winter. That might be more doable and just let the website be the magazines platform. I did get some new content up yesterday and today, go check it out.


Weekly Podcasts

Then there's  the weekly podcast and scheduling a month or two ahead of time to have a line up. Currently I would like to have someone on to discuss superfoods, essential oils, and the benefits of fermenting. Gee do you think David Wolf would be my guest for superfoods? I so would love that, but I think at this point I am to small for him. How about you? Yeah you? What topic/topics do you know about when it comes to natural living? What story do you have to share with the world? Don't be afraid it's fun and only audio, hey great idea hit me up.

Back To Work

Well that's all I have time for time to get back to work. It's 3:24 pm, podcast at 6 pm, have to get out the newsletter, get all the new emails from the fest onto Mail Chimp, clean up the kitchen, and hope I have time for some sort of work out. Hey this was nice I miss you guys.
