Video: A Garden for the American Spirit

Dear brothers and sisters,

We are convinced that you can do anything.

You took this country out of the great depression and performed miracles of wartime production. For example, in 1940 President Roosevelt shocked Congress when he proposed building 50,000 aircraft a year. In 1944 the nation made almost double that number. Ford's massive Willow Run bomber factory alone produced nearly one plane an hour.

By 1944 America led the world in arms production, making more than enough to fill its military needs and at the same time,  provided its allies with critically needed supplies.

You can do anything.You will guide us in the cleansing and regeneration we so desperately need and build here a garden for the American spirit.                                                                                                                         

May we wish you and family good health, prosperity and success.

Recipe: Raw Vegan Chocolate Pudding – Soy and Avocado Free

recipe image from remote site

Velvety chocolate pudding that's vegan and you don't have to cook! Soy and avocado free

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of raw cashews – soaked in water for at least three hours
  • 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar or sweetener of choice
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • A pinch of ground sea salt
  • ½ to ¾ cups of almond milk or any plant-based milk

Instructions

  • When the cashews are plump and squishy, drain the water and rinse them. Put them in a high powered blender along with the vanilla, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and a half of a cup of almond milk. I have a Blendtec blender and I used the “soup” setting in the “whole foods” section. Blend the ingredients until they’re thick and creamy. If you need to add more milk add it by the tablespoon so it doesn’t become watery. Scrape the sides so you don’t get any pieces of nuts in the pudding. You want it to be perfectly smooth and creamy.
