Tips to save time

This Queso goes great with the vegan and gluten free nacho recipe that is further down in this post!

To save some time I cut out part of the first step (of the queso recipe) about letting the eggplant sit in the colander for 15 minutes. It may be because I am already in the dry desert, but it still turned out delicious!

All together it takes me about 20-30 minutes to make these vegan and gluten free nachos for the family. I must say, it is an absolute hit and really tastes like the real thing. I even add a little bit of my own favorite spices to top off the flavor of the queso. (salt, pepper,garlic powder, onion powder).

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine and is used to realign and balance our energy system into a harmonious flow. It is based off of the belief that we all carry vital energy (called “Qi”) through our meridians (energy layers).  Acupuncture has been used to treat hundreds of imbalances, from a minor cold to chronic back pain.

Along with Massage, Herbal Remedies, Exercise and Nutrition, Acupuncture is one of the Five Pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  As a healing form, it dates back 5,000 years, and today in the US, about 10 million acupuncture treatments are given per year. Most likely, someone you know has received a treatment; the knowledge of its benefits are becoming more widely recognized. Acupuncture is thought to be a valuable therapeutic addition by fifty-one percent of medical doctors, and the National Institute of Health approves Acupuncture as a treatment for dozens of conditions.

Nutmeg can help with ailments like anxiety, better sleep quality, better digestion, and help for colds and the flu.
Nutmeg can help with ailments like anxiety, better sleep quality, better digestion, and help for colds and the flu.

The seed germinates in the rich volcanic soil and a tree begins to emerge. If this dioecious seed is female, it will produce its first fruit within 9–12 years. It produces about 2,000 fruit per year after about 20 years. Eventually the tree will reach to around 20 feet high and live for 3 quarters of a century.
