The illustrated Life and Health publication dated May, 1919, and published by the Review and Herald Publishing Assoc. was a very important work that gave the gift of information to a troubled world. This was the time during the Spanish influenza outbreak. We want to share with you the public domain digital reproduction of the publication because we are entering a time of uncertainty once again. In sharing this publication and the other items on this blog entry, we do not intend to cause any concern, but are only sharing the information. In our opinion, it is not necessary to become alarmed over the outbreak of swine flu or any other possible pandemic, and it is not necessary to be afraid. God is prepared for such conditions and has answers for his people. He hopes that his people will also share the information with others that they might know of his love for them.

This is a very fun recipe. At the time, in 1919, eggs weren't the problem that they are today, i.e., sick chickens, etc... . The eggs can be replaced with an egg substitute such as the packaged Ener-G egg substitute, tapioca starch or other egg substitutes. The boiled egg can be replaced by diced or mashed tofu.
This recipe is published in the Life and Health publication and can be downloaded above.
