Pineapple Angel Food Cake
1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 - 20 oz. can of crushed Pineapple.
That's all! Mix & bake according to package directions.
Remember you DON'T grease the pan when you make Angel Food Cake. Make it in a 13" x 9" pan.
Allow to cool with it turned tilted on its side! (Oops, not upside down in a 13 x9 pan. Don't ask me how I know. lol)
Warning: for those with egg allergies the mix does contain eggs!

My Easy Pulled Pork Recipe
Sprinkle one side with Mc Cormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning
Brown each side in oil with thinly sliced sweet onion, half if large, whole if small
When meat is nicely browned transfer to a crock pot with the onions
Add: 1-2 Thinly peeled sliced apples, you can add fresh peach slices too if you have one
1 small jar of baby food peaches
Jack Daniel's Original No. 7 Barbecue Sauce, same amount as the jar of peaches is fine.
Slow cook several hours until the pork shreds apart with a fork. I also like to remove the lid near the end and let the sauce thicken up a bit.

Best and Worst Foods for Digestion
Bananas - They help restore normal bowel function, especially if you have diarrhea as well as restore electrolytes and potassium that may be lost due to runny stool. This fruit also has lots of fiber to aid digestion.
Yogurt - It contains some types of healthy bacteria that helps you digest food. Note that it needs to say "active & live cultures" on the label.
Kimchi - This is a Korean favorite usually made with cabbage, radish, or onion, along with lots of spices. The main ingredient is usually cabbage, which promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon. Cabbage is a type of fiber that's not digested, so it helps eliminate waste, keeping bowel movements regular.
Lean meat and fish - Chicken, fish, and other lean meats go down a lot easier than fattier red meats. They also have not been associated with an increased risk of colon cancer like high-fat red meats have.
Whole grains - Whole grains, such as whole-wheat bread, oats, and brown rice, are a good source of fiber, which helps digestion. Take it slow when consuming more as not only can fiber also can help you feel full and lower cholesterol, but it can cause bloating and gas.
Ginger - This spice, consumed in moderation, has been used for thousands of years as a safe way to relieve nausea, vomiting, motion sickness, morning sickness, gas, loss of appetite, and colic.

Heart Rescue Project
SCA is among the leading killers of Americans, claiming an estimated 350,000 people each year. More people die of sudden cardiac arrest than breast, lung, colon, and prostate cancer combined. More than 90 percent of people who experience SCA die, representing a national survival rate that has not significantly changed in more than 30 years.
