Mouth-watering Ice cream that will make you healthy instead of sick.
Ice cream, almost everyone’s favorite. OK! So last week I said I would talk to you about eating ice cream. Some of you may ask, “I thought you were into healthy eating? Why would you eat ice cream?” Well my grand-kids make me do it. Yes, that’s right, it’s not my fault. It is my grand-kids. They are constantly pleading with me, “buy us ice cream”. I have no choice; what am I to do? So occasionally I stop at Dairy Queen and eat ice cream with the kiddos. I also eat it at birthday parties, and you might guess with 13 kids and 40 grand-kids there are quite a few birthday parties. I always end up feeling crummy after eating ice cream. I actually get a craving for milk, after eating ice cream, like it might be the antidote to the poison I just consumed.
Some people may ask just the opposite question, what’s not healthy about ice cream? So here are some things I have found that may be causing you and me to feel sick or crummy after eating ice cream. To start with it is loaded with cancer producing, disease producing, sugar. Or it has some alternate form of sugar like high fructose corn syrup, which will also shut down your immune system for 24 hours. In Proverbs 23:1-2 God says to put a knife to your throat if you plan to eat that food. (We will cover that verse in depth in a future blog). Ice cream often has many life shortening chemicals in it. Some ice cream, like Breyers, is made with “modified milk ingredients” most ice-cream contains “cellulose”(wood fiber), this ice-cream will not melt. If you leave it out for ten days, it will not be melted and unlike home-made ice cream it will be covered with mold.
According to an article in Natural News, dated August 13, 2008, “store bought ice cream is dangerous to your health. Many commercial ice creams today are simply chemical concoctions presented in appealing packaging designed to sell a product that is not fit for human consumption. Everything from hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and dry milk solids are used to produce something still allowed to be called ice cream. Many ice creams are also filled with air to double the volume. Not a dangerous practice, just less fulfilling. Some pretty frightening sounding chemicals like caroxymethyl cellulose, butyraldehyde, and amyl acetate are additives in some commercial ice creams. How about some diethyl glycol — a cheap chemical used to take the place of eggs, which is also used in anti-freeze and paint removers.”1
So, if you are like me and still want to eat ice cream occasionally and not die or destroy your immune system, then here is a recipe that will make you healthier instead of sicker. It contains nothing but good food, full of protein, calcium, salt and health producing God-made honey. (see previous blog on honey, and future blog on salt)
Some of the grand-kids camped out at our house this summer and one day they begged me for ice cream. I asked them if they had ever made ice cream and they said no. So we pulled out the hand-crank ice cream maker (I have an electric one, but thought they needed the exercise, hee hee). My daughter Leah, pulled up a recipe off the internet and I switched out the sugar for honey, one for one. I also added a little extra salt; because I love salt. When I was a kid making ice cream, a little of the rock salt would always fall into the ice cream and that was my favorite part. Some people don’t like extra salt in their ice cream, so make it the way you like it. The bible says salt is good, scientist say that it is an essential nutrient, you can’t live without salt. Dr Joel Wallach says, “salt to taste and you will live longer”. If you want your ice cream more or less sweet, simply add or reduce the amount of honey. Experiment, till you get the flavor you like. I love to throw in berries near the end. If you put them in sooner, they will ad color to the ice-cream but be pretty unrecognizable in the end product. If you add them later, they will be more intact. This recipe has the normal amount of salt and will make about a gallon of health producing ice cream. Seriously you could eat this three times a day and just get stronger.
God wants us to enjoy the food he created. Some people believe that if you eat healthy you will lose all the enjoyment in eating. This is illustrated in the following story about an older married couple that were health food fanatics. They had taken such good care of their bodies that they were now in their eighties and were still going strong. Unfortunately, they were the victims of a car accident and both went to heaven at the same time. When they got to heaven St. Peter took them to their new mansion. It was beyond anything they had ever seen and the couple was overjoyed but the husband took Peter aside and explained that though they loved the house, they probably couldn’t afford it. Peter laughed and told the man that he was in heaven and the house was free. Next he showed the man that in his back yard was the most beautiful eighteen-hole golf course ever seen. This golf course changed to a new fantastic course every day. The man thanked Peter profusely but again expressed a concern for how expensive the greens fees might be. Peter laughed and told him that there was no charge for the use of the golf course. Next Peter took them to a banquet table spread with the most beautiful and delicious food imaginable. Once more the man said that though the food looked very good, he and his wife couldn’t eat it because it wasn’t health food, it had way too many calories. Finally, Peter, a little exasperated, said “listen; this is heaven, everything is free, nothing is harmful; you can eat all you want and never get fat or unhealthy.” On hearing this the man froze in deep thought, then turning to his wife he blurted out, “If it wasn’t for you and your lousy bran muffins we could have been here a long time ago.” These people were living the lie that health food has to be flavorless and bland.
Today salt is considered an unhealthy choice. The last few times I went to a restaurants there was no salt on the tables. It seem that it is politically incorrect to eat salt (Sodium). I will cover this in detail in the next blog but let me just drop this one bomb first. Thousands of people die each year for a lack of salt. When they are taken to the hospital the first thing the hospital does is give them a saline IV, which is a saltwater IV. Often this is the only way to save their lives. Restricting salt could kill you and restricting salt will make your food taste bland. Salt enhances almost all flavors. So salt till it tastes too salty, then cut back a little. This will give you the optimum flavor and optimum health.
So here is the God approved recipe for ice cream. The ingredients are very close to the ingredients in a protein drink.
* 6 large eggs * 2 1/2 cups Honey * 1 tablespoon vanilla extract * 4 1/2 cups heavy cream, preferably raw, not ultra-pasteurized * 5 cups whole milk * ½ tablespoon salt Heat this mixture on mild heat to, 165 Deg. Fahrenheit, then cool or refrigerate till ready to use.
Put this in your ice-cream maker and crank away. It will also produce strong arm muscles. You can store any leftover ice cream in the freezer and it will remain healthy for a long long time, that is, if you don’t eat it all right away.
If you do not have an ice-cream maker, the link below will show you how to make small batches of ice cream in a bag, it is great fun, and so healthy. Just substitute my healthy recipe for their sickness producing recipe and follow all the other directions. Make up the gallon batch and keep it in the refrigerator, then pour out a cup or two into your zip lock bag each time you want to make a bowl of ice-cream, and follow the instructions in this youtube video.
GOD CREATED MAN. GOD CREATED FOOD. GOD KNOWS WHAT FOOD HE CREATED FOR MAN TO ENJOY, GOD KNOWS WHAT FOOD WAS NOT FOR MAN TO ENJOY, AND… HE IS NOT TRYING TO KEEP IT A SECRET.
God says that milk is good, honey is good, salt is good, eggs are good. People who eat these things live longer happier lives. I am sixty-four and just a few weeks ago I played in a scrimmage soccer game against two of my grand-kids classic team. I felt great, no pulled muscles, no aches and pains. Since we began this quest to follow God’s advice on health and wellness I have not missed a day’s work due to illness. We started this quest over forty years ago. God said he would remove all sickness from us, (Exodus 23:20-26) and he has. I have been living a sickness free life for over forty years and you can start living that sickness free life too. Somebody is going to live sickness free, might as well be you! Somebody is going to live to be 100+, might as well be you! Some old fart is going to score a goal on a cocky teenager, might as well be you!
OK, that’s not me, but it could have been. According to John chapter 1 and Hebrews 1:2; Jesus created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. Everything includes Man and Food for man. His instructions are in the Word for our benefit. Happy eating.
If you believe God knows best, join us and the Wellness Gospel team and spread the word, share this with your friends on social media and may God bless you richly. if you want to keep improving your health and like this kind of biblical, scientific information, then I would like to recommend three must-read books.
