Now Foods Liquid Stevia

Liquid Stevia

100% natural liquid stevia sweetener, 3 flavors, French Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, and Unflavored. Stevia is a herb, it has zero calories, and is 300 times sweeter than sugar. So you only need a couple drops. A small bottle like this lasts me for a long time even though I use it daily. The first bottle I had lasted for close to a year. I use stevia drops in my drinks, tea, coffee, smoothies and a delicious lime chia drink that I make. I also use it when I make raw chocolate treats, and recently tried it in my gluten free peanut butter cookies with great results. See all three stevia flavors here Read more »

Dark Leafy Greens

Magnesium: Are You Low In This Miracle Mineral?

Dark Leafy Greens Magnesium, it’s been called the ‘miracle mineral’ and it’s necessary for over 325 essential bodily functions, yet most people don’t get a enough on a daily basis. To put it another way, if you don’t have sufficient magnesium your body won’t be able to carry out over 325 important tasks properly. David Wolfe has said that magnesium is the #1 mineral deficiency. According to a National Academy of Sciences report 80% of American men and 70% of American women don’t get the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of magnesium from their diet and whatever supplements they take. Considering that the RDA is set at a level to prevent disease rather than support optimal health I think it’s safe to say that most Americans are deficient in this important mineral. Read more »

Cool Glass Tea Infusers

I want to tell you about these cool glass tea infusers that are on special for an unbelievable price of $2.95 right now. I’m not sure how long they will be at this price, but you can get one here. The glass tea infuser is beautiful and very well made. It normally sells for $8.95 at iHerb because they have such low prices but the standard retail price is $14.95. With this special offer you get it for only $2.95 (one per customer), and it’s well worth it! I only got one at first, because being glass, it’s tricky to photograph and hard to tell the quality from the photo. But as soon as I took it out of the box I couldn’t wait to order another. It’s a clever way to brew and drink loose tea by the cup. The glass mug has a lid and a removable glass infuser which fits inside. It looks really nice and the […] Read more »

Buy Kefir Grains

Where To Buy Kefir Grains

I’ve found a great new source of fresh kefir grains! I’m thrilled to announce that Kombucha Kamp, my recommended source for all things Kombucha is now also selling fresh, live organic kefir grains! You can find both milk kefir grains and water kefir grains here. Previously I had only found reliable sources of dried kefir grains. But the problem with dried grains is that it takes a lot more time and work to get the grains back to health and up and producing like normal. Unfortunately, it’s very common with dried grains that even when they get back to producing kefir, they don’t multiply like the should. Meaning that something is not quite right, they are lacking in vitality. Now there are times when you may need to use dried kefir grains. But unless you absolutely have to I’d highly recommend going for the live grains instead. In case you’re new to kefir and want to find out more about […] Read more »

Diet Can Affect Aggression & Temperament In Dogs

Myths About Aggression In Dog Breeds The proverbial “don’t judge a book by its cover” is difficult to apply to certain dog breeds because of statistics and news media coverage of certain types. There were 251 fatal dog attacks in the United States from 2005 to 2012, with 151 (60 percent) involving a pit bull terrier, according to statistics compiled by Dogbite.com. Another 32 (13 percent) involved Rottweilers. Keep in mind, dog bite statistics can be misleading because few are actually reported, compared to how many happen. The truth is that any dog can be aggressive, depending mostly on how they are raised and the situation they are put in. And despite the above mentioned incidents, the most aggressive dogs by nature are the ones you’d least expect. Read more »

Wheat Fast Low Carb Cookbook_

Wheat Fast Low Carb Cookbook

This book was a free kindle book for a couple of days when I first posted this article (the freebie special is over now). I literally just got it so I haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes yet. At a glance flicking through it many look interesting enough to try. It has very gotten good reviews. The first part of the book has what almost looks like a summary of the information in the very well researched and eye-opening book Wheat Belly by William Davis MD that I have been reading. I'll be posting a review of it when I finish and more articles that talk about how wheat affects our body. But let me just say here, for anyone who is interested in eating healthier, I think the book Wheat Belly should be mandatory reading. Now, getting back to the book Wheat Fast Low Carb Cookbook let me tell you a little more about the recipes at a glance... Read more »
