I just spent five minutes chasing my cats around the house with a jar of coconut oil. If I was putting coconut oil in my hair than we were all getting a little coconut oil on us today. I figure if I massage a little into their fur it will be good for them, right?
They have had about enough of this healthy eating. I have started saving the kale and spinach pulp from my juicing to put in their home-made cat food. You know what pisses felines off? Green food. I can almost read their thoughts in their golden-colored eyes “What the hell is this? St Patrick’s Day”
If there is a theme in my life this month, besides ow, pain in my ass ( thanks sciatica) than it is turmeric. I have been getting crazy for turmeric. That means a lot of orange stains in weird places.
A few days ago a friend of mine let me borrow her capsule maker so I could make my own turmeric pills. I’m barely working right now, my back pain is so intense most days so saving money is a big yea.
To make the capsules you put the little plastic machine together, put the gelatin capsule halves in each end and fill with turmeric or whatever other healthy herbs you wish to use. You than use a spoon to push the dry filing into the capsule holes. Use the tapper piece to tap it, pat it down twice and put the tops on the capsules. It’s really easy to do. It’s just time-consuming and I am very impatient.
You know what didn’t help my aching back, butt and leg? Leaning over the counter for an hour and a half to make one hundred turmeric pills. It took forever and I just don’t have the patience for it. My good friend does this every week and maybe if I wasn’t taking nine turmeric pills a day it wouldn’t be such a big deal but in eleven days I will either have to make another big orange mess or order more from Amazon. I’m choosing Amazon this time.
Still it was a creative experience to make my own capsules. If 100 pills would last longer I think it would be worth it to make my own turmeric or other kinds of home-made meds.
