Linen for Your Health!

Why wear linen? Try it on and you will immediately sense a difference.

How to Sew a Linen Skirt

It filters the air, does not cause allergic reactions, does not accumulate static electricity, posseses high air permiablity, is bacteria and fungus resistent, is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, washes and wears beautifully. That's just the beginning! Read more here!

Napa Cabbage Kimchi Recipe

Napa Cabbage Kimchi
By Ani Phyo
Makes about 8 cups
Pickling time: 2 to 3 days


1 napa cabbage, cut crosswise into 2-inch chunks

1/2 medium-size daikon radish, peeled and cut into quarters lengthwise, then 1/2-inch-thick chunks
2 tablespoons sea salt

1/2 cup water

2 green onions, sliced into 2-inch lengths

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

1 tablespoon Korean chili powder


Place the cabbage and daikon pieces in a large mixing bowl.
Place the salt and water in a separate small bowl, mix to dissolve. Pour over the vegetables. Set aside at room temperature overnight to soften.

The next day, drain, reserving the saltwater the vegetables were soaked in. Add the green onions, garlic, ginger, and chili powder to the cabbage mixture, and mix well.
Tightly pack the mixture into a 1/2-gallon glass jar with a lid. Pour the saved saltwater into the jar, leaving 1 inch of space at the top. Tightly close the lid. Leave the jar in a cool, dark place for 2 to 3 days (depending on the termperature and how pickled or fermented you want your kimchi). Refrigerate after opening. Will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge.

Kimchi!

Last night I made Kimchi! A very mild version mind you. Fermented foods are suppose to be longevity foods and good for the digestion. I love them on avocado sandwiches or just as a snack.

It took about an hour and a half of chopping and slicing, but so worth the time. It looks so colorful in a glass gallon jar sitting on the top shelf of my refrigerator.

Here is a link to the recipe I used.

Audrey Hepburn's beauty tips...

"For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
 For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
 For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
 For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
 People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
 As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."
Audrey Hepburn
