“In regard to you who suffer from sugar diabetes, fasting and staying away from sugar and starchy foods is far better than having your limbs cut off your body because of your foolish carelessness in eating sweets and starchy foods all times of the day. Cut out that sugar; do not use any at all. Use honey...”
How To Eat To Live
“And thy Lord revealed to the bee: Make hives in the mountains and in the trees and in what they build,
Then eat of all the fruits and walk in the ways of thy Lord submissively. There comes forth from their bellies a beverage of many hues, in which there is healing for men. Therein is surely a sign for a people who reflect. (Holy Quran, 16:68, 69)
As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beautiful Asiatic Sisters!
You may have noticed that I use honey in all of my recipes as a sweetener instead of sugar. Someone told me that they use pig blood to make the liquid sugar from the sugar cane to crystallize. I don’t know how true that is, but I don’t want to take any chances. The pig is poison and anything Allah says “Thou shall not do” the whiteman says “Thou shall do” or “Thou should do.” So, it would not surprise me in the least if they do use pig blood in crystallized sugar. I have had too many surprises after reading the ingredients in foods that you would never think would have pork or its byproducts in them.
Honey is much “cooler” too. It is just beautiful to look at and handle. I like things that make me feel good. Allah Promised to place us in Heaven AT ONCE upon our submission to Him and I bear witness. My life is Heaven. I find pleasure in so many things! Sunny Days. Rainy Days. Candles. Frankincense. Sunsets. Sunrises. Hummingbirds. Stars. The Moon. Flowers. Beaches. Looking around my surroundings and being grateful for everything Allah has blessed me with. Being able to share the Divine Supreme Wisdom Teachings with my Brothers and Sisters online and in person… I can go on and on…
Honey is one of Allah’s Blessings for us since the beginning. Heaven is often referred to as “The Land of Milk and HONEY”. Well, I have milk and honey on a daily basis. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) taught us that “Death Settles It All.” There is no Heaven after we die. That is slavery teachings. Our enemy, the devil Caucasian slave-masters made us to believe that we would go to Heaven after we die, while they were enjoying Heaven right here on Earth!
It makes those of us who are awake to their lies so angry with them. But it also makes you want to teach your Brothers and Sisters the Truth so that they too can experience Heaven while they live. A Muslim is not a Muslim unless she wants for her Sister what she wants for herself. And I want all of my Beautiful Black Sisters to live in Heaven as I am. Al Hamdulillah (All Praise is due to Allah.)
So, Sisters, I am going to tell you where I have found the best price for honey. SMART & FINAL. You can buy 5 lbs. for $13.49. That’s $2.69 a pound! It goes on sale rather often too. And you can get it for $10.49. which is $2.10 a pound. Ralph’s, which is owned by Kroger, sells their 5 lb. bottle for $25, which is $5.00 a pound, and $11.51 more per bottle ($14.51 when it’s on sale), just to give you a comparison.
I know, I know, you think I should not say anything so that it won’t be sold out when I go to buy it, but I love you all and I trust in Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praise is due forever, to provide.
Here are some delicious variations on Milk & Honey.
HOT CHOCOLATE MILK & HONEY
Measure out your milk. I like to used milk and cream. Heat it.
Pour some honey into your mug or coffee cup. Add a heaping teaspoon of cocoa. I also like to add a few drops of vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. Mix well.
Add milk. Stir.
*Note: You must mix the cocoa with the honey first, or else the cocoa won’t dissolve into the milk.
It’s very good cold too!
STRAWBERRY MILK & HONEY
Cut up a few fresh strawberries. (If you are making a lot you can put it in the blender for a better mix.) Add honey to the strawberries. Pour milk into it. Stir.
*This works with Peaches and Mangoes too!
But with peaches and mangoes I cut up the fruit, put them in the blender, mix some milk/cream and honey, add the milk/cream and honey to the fruit and then blend. So good!
Now Beloved Sisters, this is no substitute for eating fresh fruit. It’s just a little treat.
Beautiful Sisters, I really hope you take advantage of the wonderful blessings Allah has for you. Honey is more expensive, yes, but you are worth it and your family is worth it. SETTLE ONLY FOR THE BEST! You deserve it!
