WHAT’S IN YOUR FOOD        COFFEE

We have been taking a closer look at what is in your food. For the most part you will find that as we go on this journey we will find many invaders into our foods that are harmful rather than helpful to you individual health and wellness.

Healthy goodness in a cup

Healthy goodness in a cup

We have looked at some of our breakfast staples so far. Today we will look at our coffee.

For the most part coffee is being discovered to be a rather healthy beverage. It is a natural, plant based food. It is usually grown in remote mountainous regions where the plants have access to cleaner air. It possesses numerous anti-oxidants and other good nutrition. The issues arise when we add other things like cream, sugar, caramel, and (God knows what else. I sure don’t) to the coffee and turn it into a dessert that are more calorie dense than cake.

One of the areas where we may have concerns about the coffee we drink, is in the processing. Drying, grinding preservation, etc. Instant coffee goes through a bit more processing, and in some cases the coffee is extended with additional substances. Just one more reason to read your labels, and don’t skip over words and abbreviations that you are not familiar with. They may be a camouflage. Read the rest of this entry

The Cow’s Milk Debate – Part 1

“Think I will, Think I wont”

Is cow's milk all that it is "pumped out" to be?

Is cow’s milk all that it is “pumped out” to be?

 

 

We make decisions on what we do and do not eat for various reasons. Sometimes it is basically what we are used to (what our ancestors taught us). It may be based on an allergy. It may be because we want to lose or gain weight. Every now and again a fad comes along and we feel like jumping on the band wagon.

But sometimes we make conscious decisions based on newly gained information, or a bad experience of a loved one. I recently came to the conclusion which is basically an extension (……to zero) of a decision that is almost half a century old.

I have been hearing a lot recently about cow’s milk and the negative effects it may be having on human health and wellness. During that time, I have also been thinking and observing a lot regarding cow’s milk. Read the rest of this entry

Skin care products. Do you know what’s in them?

So you wake up in the morning. You have to get dressed and out to work. Or you have a date and you want to look and smell your best. You shampoo your hair. Or if you are African descent, you probably went to the hair dresser the day or weekend before. You use some kind of shampoo, some kind of conditioner, some kind of soap. You applied some kind of deodorant, some kind of hand cream, some kind of perfume. If you are female, you probably used some kind of face powder, lipstick, eye brow pencil, maybe mascara. And the list goes on. All these SKIN CARE PRODUCTS are used to enhance our beauty, but can they be hindering your efforts to live a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE?

Healthy Thoughts – Healthy Actions

Little Healthy Actions add up to improved body functioning.

Little Healthy Actions add up to improved body functioning.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

In an effort to implement as many Healthy Actions as I can, I am always doing research online and trying to understand my body and how it functions and what I can do to make it work better and prevent illness. My favorite people to learn from are medical doctors who also incorporate natural healing methods, and preventative techniques. Along with ancient techniques such as acupuncture, massage and etc. which collectively encourage healthy Habits.

Recently I’ve been discovering much about hormones and the glands that produce them.  What a great impact they have on our bodies and how important they are!!  Understanding the various organs and what is required for them to function optimally, and the various systems in place that keeps everything moving, is truly enlightening.

EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER

While meditating on the fact that there is so much we can do to improve our health if we understood it just a little bit, I remembered an incident that bore out my thoughts. A long time ago,( Over thirty years ) when I bought my first car, I went to the dealer to collect the car. Most females would have had someone accompany them, but I went alone. The salesman spent some time showing me certain things about the car. He went under the hood and showed me how to top up the fluids and so on. He also demonstrated what he thought I needed to know on the dashboard and the controls. So when he came to (what I later discovered was) the internal heating system, he said, “don’t worry about that. It doesn’t work.” I very uncharacteristically did not ask any questions about it. So several months later when I started feeling this intense heat at my feet, as I was driving, I had no idea where it was coming from. I imagined all kinds of reasons. I talked to people about what could be the problem, and continued to be perplexed as I drove around with heat on my feet in eighty to ninety degree weather, promising to take the car to a mechanic to figure it out.
