I want to thank you for the great Chocolate Drop Recipe. My three young children and I are eating no refined sugar for 30 days (I'll probably go longer) and I've been looking for some sweet treats we could make that use only Honey, fruit, or maple syrup as the sweetener. I've also been trying to figure out a way to get coconut oil in my kids. The drops are a hit! And they help me with my sweet cravings. We have some tree nut allergies so first I just used the oil, honey and cocoa. My pickiest child just loves them and told me she likes them better than "regular chocolate." She keeps asking me for them! I've experimented a little and just now I made a batch with half honey and half maple syrup and we really like the results. I have also made one batch using chunky peanut butter mixed in and those are my favorite. Even when we aren't doing a "sugar free" month I am going to keep those in my freezer as a healthy and very yummy sweet treat. Thanks for giving us such a great and healthy treat!

Sincerely,

They [our herb books] are comprehensive, detailed and well organized so I can start doing a much more effective job coming up with herbal answers than I could before. Oh, and flipping through the pages sends up wafts of Lavender here, Peppermint there, Mmmm! From now on I need to remember always to include herbs with any books we buy from you! Nice touch. As for the water filter, well, yippee yahoo is all I can say, besides maybe that finally I'm relieved to know that we're okay on water, wherever we go (so, yippee, yahoo and phew!). You have helped my family by helping me in my job as a wife and mother. May God bless you, your family and your business richly. ~Helen


Did You Know?

The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
