Healthy Foods Inspired by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

2013-07-26 red bean ice cake

When Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim was just a little girl, they didn’t have any ice cream in Korea.  They didn’t have electricity, or ice cream makers, or even the concept of any food that wasn’t meant to simply nourish.  Sweets?  Ice cream?  No way.  Just things to keep you alive and reasonably well, especially during and after the Korean War.

With the American Soldiers – to whom Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is forever grateful for saving her and her family’s lives, came some things she had never heard of before, such as chocolate, coffee, candy, ice cream, among many other things.

And while she could never even dream of having any of those goodies – she was barely allowed to survive on whatever little food she could scrape and scratch together – she always wondered what they would taste like.  For example, once in a while an ice…

How many blueberries are in 1 cup?

March 16, 2013

How is your immune system?  Is it strong?  Is it weak?  Did you catch a cold or flu, or do you have allergies?

There is a section on understanding your immune system in Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s The First Element ebook.  “If you think about it, nearly every disease you can think of involves some kind of “alien” element which the body must destroy or eliminate.  So healing any disease you may have ultimately boils down to getting your immune system to really kick in and kick out the offenders.

One of Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s favorite fruits are Blueberries.  Why? Blueberries have many health benefits that can strengthem your Immune System, plus they taste good, and are easy to eat.

Here’s a Blueberries experiment to do at home.

1. At the grocery store, get:

  • 1 container of Blueberries
  • 1 cup measuring cup
  • 1 tablespoon
  • 1 box of Kosher Salt (a larger grain than regular table salt)

2. In the grocery store, produce section, look for containers with big firm blueberries, deep in color, that move around inside the container when you pick it up.  If the blueberries don’t move then they are too soft and over ripe.

3. Fill your kitchen sink with 3 inches of cold water.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of Kosher salt to the cold water.  (The salt water cleans the pesticides and toxins from the blueberries.)

5. Open your container of blueberries and slowly pour them into the cold salty water in your sink.

6. Wash the blueberries with cold salty water.

7. Then rinse the blueberries with clean cold water.

8. Take the blueberries out of the water and place them on a napkin, or paper towel, or a plate to dry.

9. Put a 1 cup measuring cup next to the blueberries.

10. One at a time, count your blueberries while putting them into the 1 cup measuring cup.

11. How many blueberries are in 1 cup?  ___50?  ___100?   ___150?   ___200?  (Send a reply to let us know, how many blueberries are in your 1 cup.)

12. Now your blueberries are ready to eat.  Enjoy!

May 28, 2012

Sounds delicious! I’m going to make this sandwich for lunch!

Healthy Foods Inspired by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

It’s Memorial Day weekend, and we practically live outdoors now, especially since the temperatures are wonderful, around 65 degrees!  Perfect!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has invited us to all kinds of great outdoor activities, including a BBQ.  But until then, hungry warriors are storming Jung Suwon, and something has got to be done about that!

It can’t take too much time to make food either, so here is a very healthy and very fast sandwich idea to keep Jung Suwon warriors going!  This can be made with regular bread, or, like I do, with your favorite gluten free bread.
