PD Protocol For Prevention of Constipation
In yesterday's PD Digest, someone asked about a recipe for easing constipation. Some time ago, I saved a recipe that had been posted here (by an RN based in Honolulu, as I recall) that addressed that same problem, and so I'm taking the liberty of herewith posting that same recipe (Note: I did not originate this recipe and take no credit for it; I would be pleased if the originator would like to take credit for it and to add any updates, if any, to it).
*** Anti-Constipation Fruit Spread ***
Prepare tea with 3-1/2 cups of boiling water. Steep 5 minutes. Strain to remove leaves etcetera. ONLY 2 cups of tea to large pot.
Add fruit to the tea, and boil together 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add sugar and lemon juice. Use food processor or blender to blend to a smooth paste.
Place the blend in plastic or glass containers. Put in freezer -- the blend does not freeze and will keep for a long time.
Use 1-2 times daily on crackers or toast. --
Here's an alternative recipe for the prevention of constipation.
*** Anti-Constipation Fruit Yogurt ***
Chop the fruit and mix with the yogurt, drizzle honey in a thin stream over top (or mix in).
Used almost regularly for lunch, this worked great, though it limited the lunch-time variety. When chewing became difficult, I just put it all in the food processor and that made it easier to eat. It was quite good and I often had it too.
