New Allergen Free Recipe!!!!

Hi everyone:

Here is a new recipe that many people who can't eat peanut butter might find helpful. If you have a peanut allergy, just double check with your allergist first about eating seeds. We LOVE this at my house, and I hope you will too.

Pumpkin Seed Butter

Nutty and sweet, pumpkin seed butter is a wonderful alternative to peanut butter or other nut butter spreads. I love it on toast for breakfast, it makes a great PB&J for the kids, it’s great in cookies, after school snacks, spread on apples, you name it. It’s highly nutritious, packed full of protein, iron, zinc, and potassium, and if you make it with flax seed oil, also omega-3 fatty acids. It’s only drawback is that it’s expensive, often about $15 a jar. But not if you make it yourself! You can save yourself more than $10 a batch by whipping up your own in about 2 minutes. Here’s how. You’ll need a food processor.

1 cup pumpkin seeds
4 Tbsp. mild vegetable oil (safflower, sunflower, canola, or my personal favorite, Spectrum Organic Flax Oil*)
1/8 tsp. kosher salt

Put pumpkin seeds in food processor. Blend until a fine powder. Don’t rush it. Add oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, blending after each. Add salt. Blend until smooth. Decant and keep in the refrigerator. Makes an ample 1//2 cup.

*If you’re going to be cooking with the pumpkin seed butter, don’t use flax oil, use safflower, or sunflower oil, or another such oil that can withstand high temperatures. For more info on cooking oils, see the section “About Cooking Oils” in The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook.

    Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

    Online Stock trading, in the New York Stock Exchange, and Toronto Stock Exchange, or any other stock market requires many hours of stock research. Always consult a stock broker for stock prices of penny stocks, and always seek proper free stock advice, as well as read a stock chart. This is not encouragement to buy stock, but merely a possible hot stock pick. Get a live stock market quote, before making a stock investment or participating in the stock market game or buying or selling a stock option.
