First the 8,000 calories breakfast... now this!

If you have a bag or two of money to spare and simply love and adore food, here's what you can do: visit the Honky Tonk restaurant in Chelsea, central London, UK, and feast on a freakishly expensive burger.

The tasty delight, a photo of which is available next to this article, sells for an impressive £1,100 (€1,399 / $1,768). Still, the chef who created it says that it is well worth this much cash.

The treat, dubbed the Glamburger, is made with Kobe Waguy beef mixed with New Zealand venison ... (read more at softpedia)

La muerte de su fundador provocó el cese indefinido de las operaciones, lo que ha detenido la actividad turística en el municipio.
I have to admit, I still hate the place.

Ultimate brain food - Increase memory, reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and protect against multiple sclerosis with ginger

Ginger root is a well-recognized health marvel, mending everything from inflammation to cancer to diabetes. But did you know that it can also improve brain function? In our demanding world, acute cognitive ability is essential. Fortunately, ginger is an outstanding ally in the quest for enhanced memory and clarity. Moreover, it plays a substantial role in guarding against brain oxidative stress and neurological disease.

Wonder remedy

As a functional food, ginger is hard to beat. Used throughout the world as a delicious culinary ingredient, it also has a long track record of healing benefits. Ginger has been shown to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Prevent diabetes
  • Defeat cancer
  • Heal bacterial and fungal infections
  • Tame inflammation
  • Soothe nausea
  • Lessen the effect of toxic chemicals
  • Treat nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Protect against radiation
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Defend against the risk of stroke
  • Curb migraine headaches

And there's more. Current research has shown ginger can help make you smarter and protect against neurological afflictions too.

Brain boosting properties

Research published in Evidence Based Complementary Medicine found that the consumption of ginger by middle-aged women improved cognitive ability. Sixty healthy participants were randomly given either a placebo or standardized ginger extract (400 and 800 mg once per day) for two months. The volunteers were then evaluated at the one and two month mark for memory and cognitive function. Those who received the extract demonstrated a considerable increase in memory, while brain oxidative stress was reduced.

Another study discovered ginger root helped minimize monosodium glutamate (MSG) neurotoxicity. After male albino rats were given a daily dose (4 mg/per kilogram) of pure MSG for thirty days, a significant decrease in the hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine along with the brain neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin was observed. However, when an injection of ginger root extract (100 mg/per kilogram) was given for the same length of time, the hormones and neurotransmitters significantly increased. Researchers then found that when both were administered simultaneously, the extract mitigated the damaging effects of MSG - leading the team to conclude that ginger acts as a potent protective agent.

As an excitotoxin, MSG is linked with Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, autism and attention deficit disorder.

Whether contending with age-related cognitive decline or toxic food additives, ginger is an exceptional protective root. Including it in your daily diet is a powerful health affirming habit. Use it as a flavorful spice in cooking, freshly brewed as a tea or in extract form to help preserve brain and nerve health now and in the future.

People who grow their own food labeled 'extremist' by Dept. of Defense on Realfarmacy

by J. D. HEYES If the founding fathers were reincarnated today, they’d probably start another revolution, this time to break away from an American government that has become far too imperial for its own good.   And as such, they’d be labeled...

Savor the heart healthy benefits of raw almond-cherry cookies with cacao and hemp seed {gluten-free, paleo, vegan}

Heart health can easily be cultivated by intelligent choices of specific nutrient dense foods. Certain nuts, fruits and seeds, as well as cacao, create a winning recipe for vibrant health.

Rich in the antioxidant vitamin E along with an abundance of flavonoids, monounsaturated fat, and fiber, almonds supply fantastic nutrition for maintaining a strong and healthy heart. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that the consumption of almonds with their skins significantly lowered cholesterol levels. The synergy of vitamin E and flavonoids in the skin of almonds appears to be the key. Almonds also reduce C-reactive protein, which is an indicator of inflammation that damages the arteries. By soaking nuts overnight with a pinch of Himalayan or Celtic sea salt, nutrients are preserved and digestibility is enhanced.

Cherries, hemp seed, and cacao also provide excellent heart-friendly nutrition. Cherries contain anthocyanin (plant-based flavonoids) that display strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory traits. These qualities positively influence blood vessels, platelets and lipoproteins which reduce the risk of heart disease. The oil in hemp seeds lowers cholesterol while supplying an outstanding source of essential fatty acids. This healthy fat further helps to protect the heart by curbing inflammation and removing plaque from the arterial walls. Procyanidin, a powerful antioxidant flavonoid found in cacao, also promotes heart health by protecting tissue from oxidation while maintaining vascular tone. Learn more:

Enjoy the sweet benefits of almonds, cherries, hemp, and cacao in the following recipe. Your heart with thank you for it.

*Organic ingredients are always best for optimum health, quality, and taste.

Raw Almond-Cherry Cookies with Cacao and Hemp Seed

1 1/2 cup raw almonds
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
3/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 teaspoon each pure, glycerin-based almond and vanilla extract
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh orange peel
1/8 cup hemp seed hearts

Cover whole almonds with water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Soak 8-12 hours or overnight. Drain off excess water and place almonds into a mesh strainer over a bowl, uncovered, in refrigerator for several days. Toss almonds twice per day to aerate and speed drying time. Once almonds are completely dry, about three days, remove from refrigerator. In a food processor fitted with the S- blade, pulse 1-cup of the almonds with nutmeg, cacao and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt until coarsely chopped. Add cherries and both extracts; pulse until mixture is smooth. Place in a small mixing bowl and combine with orange zest and hemp seeds. Set aside.

With remaining 1/2-cup of soaked and dried almonds, process in a coffee grinder until finely ground. Set aside. Using a small, oiled cookie scoop, form dough into balls and roll in almond meal. Set on plate and repeat process. Chill for at least two hours and store in a sealed container.

Alternatively, the cookies can be rolled out and shaped with heart cookie cutter. Instead of rolling the dough balls in almond meal, skip this step. On parchment paper, form dough into a 3-inch wide log. Wrap the paper around dough and seal completely by twisting the ends. Chill for 3 hours. Unwrap and cut into 1-inch thick slices. Using a well-greased cookie cutter, punch out each shape and set a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Once full with cookie shapes, place the sheet in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the following ingredients in a medium bowl:

1 cup extra virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2-3 drops natural food coloring

With a stand or hand mixer, beat the coconut oil until creamy. Add the agave, lemon juice and coloring. Mix well.

Remove cookies from refrigerator and spread an even layer of the glaze over each shape. Chill at least 20 minutes before serving. Store in a sealed container (with parchment paper dividers for each layer) in the refrigerator.
