Operating as usual
My home made energy bites. I’m not a big fan of any commercial energy bars. They all have added sugar and taste ridiculously sweet. Recipe in second photo. Pop one or two for a great snack during your day.
Sugar affects everything. Hormones. Energy. Cravings. Brain Fog. Depression. Anxiety.
This specific chart is specifically for skin but you can apply these nine concepts to any health issue.
Protein ideas are often a challenge. Here a four great ideas to start you week off right.
Pretty much the case except for a few natural foods that are easy to overeat, among them .....Nuts! They will put the brake on weight loss very very quickly. So use sparingly 👍
I’m on an “anti gummie” rant. See previous post also.
No more “gummie” supplements please. This has been a public service announcement 😎
Processed carbs will never keep you satisfied for long. You’ll always go back for more. That’s their job, to keep you wanting more. The higher the quality of food you’re eating the more satiated you will feel!
Ah yes! Roasting organic beef bones for healthy healing soup stock.
This is an example of a great green juice product because it is mostly green juice with little to no fruit juice. Look for the grams of sugar on the label. This one has only 4 g per 8 oz. This is one teaspoon. For comparison, orange juice has 21 g or 5 teaspoons of sugar 😮. Green juice is like a liquid multi vitamin that is quickly absorbed for energy.
It says 7 brain health foods but you can see more than 7. Here’s an explanation. Salmon and blueberries are 1 and 2, veggies 3rd, avocado 4th, fermented foods 5th, prebiotic 6th and rounding it out nuts are the 7th.
Loved this. Obviously we would clean the water first, right? Same with our own health. Why not start afresh, clean the muddy waters and maybe we wouldn’t need big pharma. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Hashimotos is the #1 most prevalent form of autoimmunity. This specific autoimmunity attacks your thyroid and here are some great tips to support that important gland.
I hear it ALL the time. If you are eating a standard American diet (SAD) you get plenty of sugar and it’s all hidden. Taking processed food out will alleviate a lot of these. ☘️
We are never going to move forward in our health journey unless we take that first step and keep moving ahead. Our bodies don’t care if it’s Monday or Saturday. It just wants to know you will take care of it now, not tomorrow, not the next day❤️
We need to control blood sugar levels. We need to get quality sleep. AND, we need to p**p daily.
If your doctor tells you your overall cholesterol # is too high and you need to go on a statin please take ownership of your health and do periodic testing. Once a year does not cut it. Currently Direct Labs charge $40 for a complete cholesterol panel. Your order it on line and then go to a legt lab close to your home to have the blood draw. This gives you some more data points on your cholesterol graph. Rememer, cholesterol is not the problem. Hardened arteries are the problem.
Lets meet 2020 head on and get it done!
Enjoy your eggs! They are full of..well...just about everything!
Instead of teaching type 2 diabetics to match their carb intake with insulin, why not teach them to minimize their carb intake to minimize their need for insulin? I know why. There's no profit for big pharma in this message. Diabetes is a disease caused by an intolerance to carbohydrates. Doesn't it make sense to minimize the exposure to the intolerance?

This soup is another winner. It does have cream cheese so maybe if you are following a dairy free regime you could use coconut milk. We added a "bunch" of chopped cilantro while the pot was cooling down. One more thing, we added some veggies, mushrooms, red and green peppers. It was really tasty.
Simply a great, healthy, no sweetener energy snack that tastes just like fudge.
This gets tricky. Its always good to go non-GMO but did you know that 5% of ingredients are allowed to be non-organic in organic food. My advise, chose a label that says both and double your odds of not getting herbicides and pesticides in your gut.
Non-GMO vs. Organic – What’s the Difference? | Chosen Foods Health conscious consumers today face a dilemma. Do you choose the package labeled Non-GMO Project Verified or USDA Organic?
