It used to be that 1 in 30 would die from cancer.  Now it is 1 in 3.  What happened?  Well for one there are 500 times the amount of chemicals dumped in the environment than there was 100 years ago.  Our food is laved with pesticides, we eat hormones and anti-biotics from animals raised in cages, we don’t eat fresh picked from a garden…and it’s mostly processed.  I could go on but you get the picture.  But what happens when you get your food out of a window?  Does a sandwich and fries have any nutritional value?

Everyday, you choose what you put in your mouth and it doesn’t just go out the other end.   It makes a pit stop in your blood which travels throughout your entire body and all those chemicals in processed food even cross the blood brain barrier.  No wonder your tired, sick and running like a 1967 Pinto that hasn’t had an oil change in 14 years.  With cancer on the rise in our society, it has never been more important to eat foods that heal, replenish needed nutrients and flush out the crap.  After all, food is fuel. It is your pharmacy. There are definitely some qualified cancer fighting super foods that will help you begin rebuilding your motor.

Do you know when an avocado is ripe?

One avocado provides your body with vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, along with a ton of potassium and “healthy” fats. Did you know that by adding avocado to other fat burning foods, you can improve your absorption of nutrients? Avocados can also reduce the signs of aging, regulate blood sugar and improve eye health.  Most people love avocados or at least guacamole! Ole!

How many times have you gone to make guacamole only to find a very questionable avocado waiting for you? Here is a very simple way to decide if that softy is edible or not.

I’m not sure about you but I am about ready to start feeling the warmth of summer again and I’m certainly looking forward to the healthy complexion and the vitamin D I get from a little daily dose of sun.  (Even if it’s from my car window!)  Since I’m just now taking down my Christmas decorations it’s probably going to be a while before Summer gets here. Here’s a quick little diagram to help you get that that sun kissed healthy glow, even with a scarf and coat on.

Why I Don’t Vaccinate My Babies

This is always a very heated debate among people, parents or not. My decision not to vaccinate my children was made after much research and discussion with my husband and peers. Many of my friends who are alternative medicine doctors all over the country have persuaded my family that vaccination is not the right choice for my children right now.  A major problem is injected too many vaccines, too close together and too young.

I have listened to both sides and I definitely believe no matter what they should never be vaccinated under 2 when the immune system is just developing.  Doctors wanted to inject a sexually transmitted disease in order to vaccinate my daughter when she was a day old to protect when she becomes a teen!  What??  Ridiculous, and it’s all about $$$$$$$$$$$.

From the people’s chemist:

Parents who choose not to vaccinate their children and protect them with vaccine exemption forms are often chastised and stereotyped for putting their own kids at risk. But what is even stranger than this assault on individual freedom and informed choice, is that these concerned parents are attacked for putting vaccinated children at risk.

These attacks are based on the theory of “herd immunity.” This hypothesis was plucked out of an old college textbook. It states that the more people are immune to an infectious agent, the less likely an immune-compromised individual is to come in contact with it. In other words herd immunity serves as a human shield ““ a type of immunity ““ for “at-risk” individuals. But remember, it’s only a hypothesis.

When outbreaks arise among children, health officials are quick to state that it’s due to a breakdown in “˜herd immunity.”˜ Doctors parrot it too, without even looking at the research. They say it’s happening more often nationwide as states make it easier for parents to opt out of vaccinations.

Like argumentative apes, pro-vaccine parents and their physicians start pounding their chest in favor of such statements. They use them to attack anti-vaccine parents, accusing them of “putting vaccinated kids at risk due to a breakdown in herd immunity.”

This is fuzzy logic. And it’s borderline stupid.

After all, if vaccines truly worked, then why would vaccinated kids be at risk?

“¦Plus, the spread of infection isn’t limited to coming into contact with another person! You can get sick without ever seeing another individual. Therefore, herd immunity is nothing more than a silly catch-phrase used to scare and bully parents into vaccinating their kids. Don’t fall for it parents, keep using the vaccine exemption forms to legally avoid them.

I love having a breakfast dish that you can put together for company and bake the morning of that is savory since not everyone wants something sweet.

Or if you have a family like I do and like to have leftovers for a couple days, this recipe is excellent to make Sunday and have Monday morning plus it adds vegetables to your morning and kids love it and will never know you stuffed a bunch of kale in there!
