I’ll bet you’re wondering how Lucas is doing! Well, wonderful! If you recall, he had hip dysplasia, due to what one Vet said was a herniated disc – and the other in town said “long-dog” syndrome. But then, when we went in for his degradation in health, they found tick and mite disease. The nurse said, “When the meds kick in, his hips will be better.” And sure enough, that’s what happened. As soon as his system cleared up, so did his hips! He still has the tiniest sway in his hips, but is running like mad, stealing socks, taking paper from the waste can, and playing with Tiko, like a puppy again! I am SO happy for him, and for us! Love you, Lucas!
Recipe of the Day – Lavender Hot Chocolate
2 c. almond or coconut milk
1/8 c. cacao powder
2 tsp. honey, or 3 drops Honey-Flavored Stevia, liquid
2 grains pepper
2 grains salt.
1 sprig of lavender, ground fine
- Place milk and cacao in a small sauce pan and turn to medium heat. Whisk until dissolved.
- Add in honey, or honey-flavored stevia and whisk until melted. Add in the spices – turmeric makes cocoa creamy! The pepper ignites the healing elements of the turmeric, and salt makes chocolate wonderful! You can also just throw in a sprig of lavender without grinding it up.
Word of the Day – curación – healing
