Just turn a corner already with Anti-Crud Bombs!

Just when you thought the world couldn’t get more crazy, dark, complicated, enter the COVID19 mayhem! We are taking notice at our house and putting some basic emergency-preparedness strategies in place and increasing our consumption of foods-and-supplements shown to have anti-viral properties. Tis always a good idea and wise steward of resources, including information, to take care of your self and loved ones if you can.

In the midst of all of this, I decided to create a healthy snack food for me and my beloved. We are taking anti-virals already but how about improving our fight-stance using up some of those weird powders and potions I have collected from our local health food stores? No prob. And just like that, JJW’s Anti-Crud Bombs were born!

Just Julie Write’s Anti-Crud Bombs*

BASE

2 T Organic elderberry syrup

2 T Upgraded nano zinc liquid or similar

1 t Bee pollen granules or powder

1 T Grass-fed, organic collagen

¼ t Celtic/Himalayan sea salt

1/8 C Organic coconut oil, solid, at room temperature

1/8 C Gaia Immunity Shine or similar powdered product

1/8 C Baobab, pomegranate, or other plain, low-sugar/super ox powder

¼ C Finely shredded, unsweetened organic coconut

2 T Liposomal vitamin C liquid or powder

¼ C (Lactose-free?) grass-fed, organic whey powder

Substitute ingredients as needed.  Mix first 5 ingredients (or ones of smaller quantity) first.  Use a pastry blender or 2 knife-and-fork to cut-n-combine with remaining  ingredients until crumbly like pastry batter.  A normal person will want his or her BOMBS to taste at least somewhat good so add familiar flavors.  A health nut like me with lots of dietary restrictions will want to limit sugars, even add bitters to reduce glycemic impact.  There is evidence that sugar or anything sweet-tasting can deplete immunity and/or mess with blood sugar levels so only use as much as you need.  NO SWEETENERS of any kind!  This is a “health food” not a snack or candy.  Divide mixture in half if making 2 versions below; you have 3 options from here:  1) Add Sweetened Version ingredients to half of the Base, 2) Add Low Sugar Version ingredients to the other half of the Base, or 3) Add entire Base to the version you choose.  Adjust ingredients so the mixture remains somewhat crumbly but sticks together when you pinch it.

Sweetened Version                                   Health Nut Version

½ C Organic peanut or almond butter                               ½ C Organic almond or

2T Chopped organic cranberries                                                  mixed Seed Butter

1/8 C Organic coconut sugar                                             2 T Chopped organic black currants

                                                                                                1 t Finely ground, roasted dandelion root powder

(maya nut, etc.)

Set aside:  Organic cocoa powder                                    Ground flax seeds, etc.

Form mixture into a large ball.  Place on sheet of waxed paper, pinch and roll into

A short log about 1 ½ inches in diameter.  Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate 2

hours.  Slice firm batter into about 1-inch pieces, roll into a ball in the warmth of

your hands and roll in desired powder.  Store in airtight container, placing waxed

paper between layers of bombs.  These should keep about a week in the

refrigerator and freeze well too.

GOALS FOR THIS RECIPE:

  • As low-sugar as possible but reasonably tasty, earthy?
  • Include protein and fat to balance simple carbs somewhat.
  • Add bitter flavors to potentially reduce blood sugar impact, promote bile flow.
  • Use as many anti-microbial-like herbs, supps, and foods as possible.
  • Sufficient fat to create refrigerated dough, make bombs satisfying.
  • Be able to freeze them.
  • Avoid heat so as not to degrade or change ingredients in any way.
  • Encourage one’s spouse/loved one to add potent, anti-crud supplements to his/her otherwise “normal” diet without tasting too weird.
  • Avoid impacting metabolism or interfering with sleep as much as possible.
  • Add fiber, healthy fats, omega 3s, minerals.
  • Put all the crazy powders and ingredients I have collected to good use.
  • Convenience.  We have one in the morning and one at night.

*Julie makes no claims about the benefits or drawbacks of these ingredients or bombs! Please do your own research and substitute your favorite wellness items as desired. Enjoy!

This but not that

woman with medication, supplements, too many, overdose, Lyme, chronic illness, naturopath, functional, medicine, supplements

Take the B Complex but not with Methyl B12 (met/met not val/val or met/val right?)

Twice per day not at breakfast and per your COMT SNP and not to excrete it by noon.

Add back the P5P because it’s not in my B Multiple as I once thought;

That was last year’s protocol and btw, change brands for the latter while you are at it too.

Again use folic acid already but not the one everyone else does

Lest you reject, binds or cancels out stuff with the rest, if you tolerate it of course.

What about that folate receptor antibody study from that lab

That your other Doctor told me about but did not do last year?  Duh, what?

And take the Sambuca all the time not just when battling a cold

Because it’s the only zinc I can tolerate but not with my newly found NAC dose.

Be sure to take the Claritin with manganese to fool the Lyme

Which I guess I have but only clinically and because my labs say this mineral is low.

Then there’s the magnesium I finally found that I could take or soak in through the skin

But take that one twice per day as well so it doesn’t go out with the B’s.

So if this makes any sense to you then you understand my plan better than me,

Because things are getting insane over here while still treating OP plus the P in the brain.

Oh yeah, the multi-factorial binder I took 2 hours after the new anti-parasitic

Must follow everything by 2 hours lest it cancel it out like a whiny kid who drops her stolen candy while running away.

Surely there’s more to know in this and not that:  just my brain dump for tonight

Can’t wait for my appointment next week when more test results will tweak this madness even further!

Stay tuned . . .
