There can be an enormous difference in what each family spends on their groceries, depending on many factors, such as whether they buy name brand, more meat, etc.

The good news is that this allows for a large amount of savings if we decide to be frugal with our shopping. Following a few simple tips will have you well on your way to saving a few bucks.

1.) Make a meal plan. You’ll know exactly what you need from the store before you go.

2.) Watch for specials and coupons in store newsletters, and plan your meals around them.

3.) Make a list and stick to it. If its not on the list, then just don’t buy it.

4.) Never shop when you are really hungry. That way you wonít be tempted to buy things that you don’t need.

5.) Shop alone. Count on your bill being higher when you bring your spouse or children.

6.) Only buy things you know youíll use. For example, if your family doesnít like broccoli, donít buy broccoli in the hopes that theyíll eat healthier this week.

7.) Keep your eyes on the items on the bottom shelf where the prices are lower.

8.) Buy store brands when the quality is the same. Most of the time, it actually is the same product in a different package.

It is pretty easy to be frugal once you realize how much money youíre actually saving with these simple steps. Keep a log of your grocery bills, so you can see how much of a difference you are making. Have you ever noticed that the things you buy every week at the grocery and hardware stores go up a few cents between shopping trips? Not by much…just by a little each week but they continue to creep up and up.

  • All it takes for the price to jump up by a lot is a little hiccup in the world wide market, note the price of gasoline as it relates to world affairs.

There is a way that we can keep these price increases from impacting our personal finances so much and that is by buying in quantity and finding the best possible prices for the things we use and will continue to use everyday… things that will keep just as well on the shelves in our homes as it does on the shelves at the grocery store or hardware store.

For instance, dog food and cat food costs about 10% less when bought by the case than it does when bought at the single can price and if you wait for close out prices you save a lot more than that. Set aside some space in your home and make a list of things that you use regularly which will not spoil. Any grain or grain products will need to be stored in airtight containers that rats can’t get into so keep that in mind.

Then set out to find the best prices you can get on quantity purchases of such things as bathroom items and dry and canned food. You will be surprised at how much you can save by buying a twenty pound bag of rice as opposed to a one pound bag but don’t forget that it must be kept in a rat proof container.

You can buy some clothing items such as men’s socks and underwear because those styles don’t change, avoid buying children’s and women’s clothing, those styles change and sizes change too drastically. Try to acquire and keep a two year supply of these items and you can save hundreds of dollars.

Form Healthy Blood Cells With 12 B Vitamin

Vitamin Line-Up

The brilliance of 12 B Vitamin uncovered!

12 b vitamin is one particular b vitamin that is known to be essential to maintaining a significantly healthy and balanced body. Usually known as Cobalamin, the 12b vitamin is necessary for the processes to convert carbohydrates, fats and proteins from food directly into energy. 12 b also, more notably, will help continue to keep the red blood cells wholesome and consequently avert heart disease as well as keeping the immune system functioning at its optimum level. In accessory, 12 b is utilized to generate the safeguarding of all neurological cellular material in the human body.

"WANNA KEEP 'EM HEALTHY^ OVERCOOKING DEST...
“WANNA KEEP ‘EM HEALTHY^ OVERCOOKING DESTROYS VITAMINS”^ – NARA – 516013 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
  1. The most significant functionality of 12 b is to create and support healthful red blood cells.
  2. Nevertheless, all cells need to have 12 b to keep them healthy.
  3. It is the white blood cells, amidst others, that require 12 b to help make certain that the immune system stays functioning appropriately.
  4. All of the nerve cells in the body also need 12 b to form their protective fatty layer.
  5. This is essential for all of the nerves but is particularly so for those in the human brain.
  6. Reason being, If there is not adequate 12 b to develop this protective layer then the brain will not function adequately.

 

Remarkably, the volume of 12 b that the body requires is comparatively small but is needed on a regular basis. However, 12 b on its own is not enough as the body cannot absorb it easily. To help the body absorb 12 b the stomach produces intrinsic factor which enables more of the 12 b to be absorbed. 12 b is only found in animal foods such as liver, eggs, fish and meat but most people consume far more than their recommended daily amount of 12 b. This is not a problem as the body can only process about half of the 12 b that is consumed. It is also worth noting that the body can recycle the 12 b which cuts down on the impact of a 12 b deficiency. However, rigid vegetarians or vegans are likely to require 12 b supplements if they do not consume any animal products that include 12 b.

One last thing, If the entire body does not have plenty of 12 b then anaemia is the most noticeable warning sign. Naturally, this is simply because of the fact that there is not ample 12 b to make healthy and balanced red blood cells. Anaemia can also be triggered by the body not creating enough intrinsic factor to help absorb the 12 b that is available in the food eaten. The body’s need for certain vitamins is likely to be a significantly less important issue especially once a man or woman gets to 50 and this will lead to less 12 b being absorbed and supplements of 12 b may be necessary. Kids are also at risk from anaemia because they may not eat the food items that contain 12 b. Pregnant women need more 12 b because the little one is absorbing 12 b during the pregnancy to grow adequately.

The Appropriation cycle (12pm-8pm ). This is when we should eat the majority of our heavy concentrated foods.

Now your body has the energy required to preformed the vital functions concerning the food you eat. INGEST (EAT)  – DIGEST (BREAK DOWN). This is when we should eat the majority of our HEAVY CONCENTRATED FOODS.

Lunch and dinner fall into this cycle.

This is the time when the body is most efficient at digesting and dealing with foods. It’s also the time when we are burning them up the fastest because we’re at our most active. As long as we are eating according the dictates of our appetite, we should be merrily refuelling and burning, refuelling and burning in a fairly steady and comfortable way, which makes for a really comfortable feeling in the body.Eating when one is truly hungry can take a bit of getting used to, but is far more enjoyable than eating just because the clock dictates it’s lunchtime. And it makes so much sense! 

Lunch is the best convenient to have starch meals at lunch as opposed to protein, Do so – Do not make this difficult.

Just make sure you plan your meals using the BASIC PRINCIPLES OF COMBING HEAVIER CONCENTRATED FOOD (protein or starch) with lighter foods, vegetable and /or salad).

Here are the food combining basics:

  • Starches + Veggies = OK
  • Proteins + Veggies = OK
  • Proteins + Starches = No No
  • Plant Proteins + Plant Proteins = OK
  • Animal Proteins + Animal Proteins = No No
  • Starches + Starches = OK
  • Fats + Proteins (animal or plant) = No No (or pair moderately)
  • Fats + Carbohydrates = OK
  • Fats + Starches = OK
  • Fruits are best eaten on an empty stomach
  • Fruit + Raw greens = OK (except melons)

When you “mis-combine” (mix incompatible food groups together at the same meal), two things happen: first, the food does not digest properly and ends up rotting and putrefying in your stomach, and second, because the food isn’t being absorbed properly, you don’t get the nutritional value you need from it.

When you mis-combine your meals by mixing animal protein with, say, carbohydrates high in starch (Maxi Carbs), your stomach begins pouring in both alkaline and acid, and unfortunately they neutralize each other. It’s a stalemate, and since the stomach maintains a 104 degree temperature, what you end up with is sort of an “oven” where the undigested meat and starch begins to ferment, rot and putrefy, causing the undesirable symptoms of gas, flatulence, headaches, bloat, sleepiness, diarrhea, constipation, etc. We’re talking about a real mess, and if it continues over the years, undigested food will begin to pile up and ultimately clog your colon and intestinal tract (your life lines to health).

 

WE ALL MUST BECOME MORE ACCEPTING OF THE FACT THAT…..WE DO NOT HAVE TO EAT MEAT AT EVERY MEAL……..WORK WITH THE PROGRAM AND THE PROGRAM WILL WORK FOR YOU.

 

Promote healthy Throat Chakra!!

Thyroid Thyroid (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Throat Chakra, or Vishuddhais about speaking one’s truth Obviously, Vishuddhais located at the base of our neck, and affects the proper functioning of our vocal cords and our thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is associated with hormone production that is key to physical growth and maturation. Spiritually, that growth is that of our consciousness and wisdom. The Throat Chakra incites us to live ideally, be surrounded by beauty, expressiveness, through our self-expression and ability to make our feeling and emotions our reality. It is the center of our capacity to community.

To maintain the health of your throat chakra, always be open, receptive, and humble. Having an open throat chakra is not just our ability to express ourselves but to listen to the truths others seek to share with us. For example, an overactive throat chakra might be obvious in our desire to control the consciousness of other peoples lives. A deficient throat chakra is evident if you are overly egotistic or prejudiced, or if you perceive the world as hostile, expecting to be humiliated, used, or judged by others rather than loved and nourished.

Affirmations for the Throat Chakra:

Ways to eat to promote healthy Throat Chakra!!

*Chew food: In the age of fast living, we are doing everything fast, including eating. If we are eating on the run, we may tend to shortcut our eating by gulping and swallowing rather than chewing and assimilating. If we are not chewing our food thoroughly, chances are we won’t be able to digest, absorb, and ultimately, assimilate it into our body. Thus, chewing serves an important function. It is also essential that we put our awareness into eating so we get the most from the experience and do not feel like overeating – chewing slowly helps us to accomplish this. Eating with consciousness keeps us in the moment and allows us to savor the flavor and joy of foods!

*Eat high-quality foods for your highest self: Every day we are bombarded with food choices – how do we know what is best for us? Nutritionists seem to tell us one thing one day and another thing the next. How do we know how to choose foods? The throat chakra is about choice, decisions, and options – but not just any – the throat chakra, being a higher, resonating chakra than some of the other lower chakras, is calling us to make the best choice for ourselves and our planet. Eat foods that serve your body, mind, and spirit, and that serve the realm of nature – the animals, plants, and water. If we are eating meat from chickens kept in unhealthy, stressful conditions, we may take on the ‘energy’ of those chickens – frenetic, chaotic, stressful. If we are eating foods that were grown using natural elements instead of synthetic, such as organically grown foods, we are taking in healthy, higher-vibratory signals for our soul.

*Broaden your food horizon: When we cave into food ruts, we let go of our ability to choose and experience. The throat chakra encourages us to be expansive like the overarching sky – to look wider and broader, to explore and discover. One of the ways we can do this is by eating ethnic foods – foods we may not normally eat, whether Thai, Indian, Middle-Eastern, European, or Ethiopian, to name a few. See what happens when you introduce some variety. It exposes you to an abundance of tradition and culture. It broadens not only your food horizon, but helps you to step out of the box of your everyday living!

*Spark alchemy amongst the food elements: On a spiritual level, the throat chakra is about alchemy – transforming the messages of the heart into the language of voice, words, song, poetry. The throat chakra resonates with the alchemy of food elements – bringing together water and earth, fire and water, fire and earth. By eating foods like soups (earth-water elements fused together through fire), we encourage and honor our connection with the elemental nature of foods and our bodies.

Feeding Your Throat Chakra

Speaking One’s Truth

  • Liquids in general: water, fruit juices, herbal teas
  • Tart or tangy fruits: lemons, limes, grapefruit, kiwi
  • Other tree growing fruits: apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots, etc.
  • Spices: salt, lemon grass

The Perfect Curves Scam

Human female breasts

When it comes to breast enhancement there are many options a woman can choose from, such as Perfect Curves. This company has gotten a lot of attention from people but a lot of people wonder if the company is true or if it is a Perfect Curves scam.

Perfect Curves make some very big claims about their breast enhancement supplements and creams. However, before anybody buys their products they should understand a few things about some of the ingredients that are in natural breast enhancement products.

Some Ingredients That Could be in Perfect Curves Products

The FDA sometimes do not regulate companies that have natural herbal supplements. This is why people get scammed so easily.

With that said, one of the ingredients that are possibly found in breast enhancement pills is Blessed Thistle. Some countries do approve of this ingredient and is usually used for the treatment of indigestion and appetite loss. This ingredient has no known effects on enhancing breasts but it can increase milk flow in a nursing woman.

Another ingredient used in many breast enhancement supplements is Dong Quai. Dong Quai is usually used to treat menstrual symptoms. This is another ingredient that has not been proven to have any effects on enhancing breasts. Actually, test tube studies should that this ingredient stimulates breast cancer cell growth, and this is a very serious side effect. This is why women who take this ingredient should visit their local OBYGN and ask them about Dong Quai.

Fennel is also found in many products, such as the ones in Perfect Curves. This ingredient has been found in food and medicine for many years now. According to some, there may be some evidence that Fennel does increase breast tissue in rats. However, there really is no evidence on the effects in human women.

Fenugreek can be found in a lot of different breast enhancement products. There are some stories that say that Fenugreek was fed to women in order to enhance their breasts. However, there really are no solid stories that confirm that Fenugreek increases the size of women’s breasts.

Knowing Who To Trust

There really is no evidence that companies like Perfect Curves produces breast enhancement products that actually work in the long run. Women can easily get the truth about Perfect Curves by simply talking to an OBGYN that has years of experience. There are way to many companies that try to trick women into thinking that their products will increase breast size. Many products simple do not have any clinical science that backs up their claims. This is why it is important for a woman to seek out professional advice from a licensed ONYGN.

A OBYGN can aid women if they are in need of help with health problems. OBYGNs also are able to give advice on treatment options for many conditions. A good example of this is if a woman comes down with UTI, they can go and get proper treatment from a loacal doctor who is experience.

Living/raw food breakfast. A great way to start your day..

It’s a fact that in the morning our digestives system takes just as much time to wake up as the rest of our body does. The best way to gently get it going is by drinking easy-to-digest juices, smoothies ,etc. They’re hydrating and packed with nutrients to replenish vitamins and minerals lost during the night and provide energy without feeling weighed down.

 

 

 

Some of the best raw food recipes for breakfast are green smoothies, fruit salads,granola and chia pudding. Even if you do not eat a strict living/raw food diet, having a breakfast of living/raw foods can do wonders for your health.

 

Your breakfast choice is crucial to whether or not your body can continue to detoxify or is forced to stop. For example, eggs and bacon will bring a halt to all the body’s hard work after a long night of fasting, but a raw food breakfast such as a fruit smoothie or bowl of chia oatmeal will allow the body to continue to cleanse itself.

A light breakfast of raw foods will also result in higher energy levels throughout the day because of how easy it is to digest. A few of my favorite living/raw food breakfast is fresh juice, fresh frutits, chia pudding or even smoothie, which is predigested by the blender and even easier to digest.

 

 

 

Though we need food for nourishment, we also need food to taste exquisite and be pleasing to the eye. Are not the most memorable meals the ones where every human sense is enticed? Don’t be discouraged if you never been proficient in the kitchen. Balancing flavor, creating texture and beautiful presentation are culinary arts that anyone can master. With living foods, there are countless possibilities within the parameters of not heating them. Sometimes you just have to think outside the box. As you look at these pictures, I hope that you are inspired.

Breaking your fast during the body’s elimination cycle (4am-12pm).

At the beginning of the day, after sleep, your body is breaking a fast. During the time while you sleep, you are fasting. After waking, the first meal consumed will break the fast. Break-fast should be sensitive to the rest and cleansing that the fast provided to your body. You should not consume anything heavy at this time. Instead, the first thing that you should consume is a glass of water at room temperature with fresh squeeze lemon juice, a period of 15-30 min should be allowed so that the lemon water can do its function. This should be followed by fresh-squeezed/fresh-pressed fruit juice or fresh seasonal fruit. This is what your body needs at this time of day and what is easiest on the digestive system. The juice lubricates your system and allows it to function optimally.

Elimination cycle (4am-12pm).This is the time when your body would like to direct most of its energy to the work of cleansing toxins from your body. To not interrupt this work, light eating is the best choice now , as the best way to break your fast (BREAKFAST). This does not mean a cup of coffee (regular or decaf) and a donut . By light I mean eating the lightest, most perfect food.. Fruit and Fruit Juices  (diluted with  water is best for most) You see, fruits does not diget in your stomach. In fact, fruit goes through the stomach and directly to your small intestines. In this way, there is no diversion of energy from the body’s work of eliminating being used fordigestion of food. You see. when a heavy traditional breakfast is eaten ( eggs, potatoes, grits, bacon, toast, biscuits, waffles, pancakes, french toast, etc), it takes energy away from eliminating  toxins and uses it for digestion of foods just eaten, and proper ELIMINATION IS NEVER ACHIEVED. 

 

The ideal elimination pattern. Three to five bowel eliminations daily — once upon rising, one after each meal, one before retiring. When this pattern is not the norm ( and for most, it i not), then over time, it can take its tool on the body. Eating fruit and drinking fruit juices in the morning (especially the ripe, juicy ones), can provide an easily absorbed food, high in vitamins and minerals. You have also employed the greatest cleanser for your body, as they help to dissolve the often old accumulation of mucus and waste that is along the intestinal walls ( this include small intestines and colon). For some, eating fruits only  in the morning may take a while to get used to. Do the best you can. Eat the amount of fruit and/or juice to make you comfortably full. If  you feel hungry later in the morning, you can have bananas, granola, bran muffins (made with natural sweeteners), or whole grain toast. Keep in mind your objective is to adjust to ONLY FRUIT AND/OR DILUTED FRUIT JUICES IN THE MORNING.

*Fresh squeezed or pressed fruit and vegetable juices are meals in themselves and one of the quickest and most expedient means of consuming the whole nutrient the body needs. Bottled and canned juices are not fresh. Many of them have been pasteurized (subjected to extreme heat), diluted, reconstituted and/or have additives, artificial colors, artificial flavors and preservatives added. They are completely devoid of the digestive enzymes that are vital to your body needs.

Don’t Be A Lazy Vegetarian

Indian curry is real good.

It seems like the diet for so many vegetarians is filled with noodles, desserts, and processed junk from everywhere you can think of. For a person to feel life in their body they have to add life to their body in someway or else.

Selecting the Improper carbohydrate supply for your body creates a high probability of obesity and other health issues. You or someone you know has been there. After a long day at work and the last thing on your mind is to set a moment aside to prepare a healthy, nutritionally balanced vegetarian dish. So you may of opted for a pizza from a local resturant that serves your favorite pizza on wheat crust with maybe even soy cheese too.

But there’s only one problem. Sure your dinner choices are taken care of plus you have your vegetarian pizza with a tiny amount of sprinkled vegetables on it too. However you still have no real nutritional benefit added to your body. Dough, sauce and a hint of over cooked veggies are well under what your body needs to truly thrive most effectively!

It’s not good in the long run to choose a refined or enr carbohydrate iched (the junk stuff) over the opposite which is 100% beneficial carbohydrates that a solid, well-balanced vegetarian diet offers without any guess work. Eating for taste alone defeats the purpose of your decision to live a vegetarian lifestyle. A balanced vegetarian diet ideal for optimal health. Eating refined carbohydrates presents several potential risks to your well being.

Over-ingestion of processed carbohydrates and all kinds of sugar can result in extra insulin in the bloodstream, not a good thing at all. In the presence of too much insulin, glucose, the blood sugar, is converted to triglycerides and stored in the fat cells of the body causing the body to stop burning but instead to store fat. Unless you’re looking to gain unhealthy weight, not an amazing idea for the health of your body.

According to a medical analysis, eating refined grains could also raise your risk of acquiring stomach cancer. In addition, refined sugars and carbohydrates have been suggested as a factor in contributing to increased gallbladder disease, according to a recent study. The research showed a direct link between the amount of sugars eaten and the incidence of gallbladder disease. Another study looked at the role carbohydrates play in the incidence of heart disease. The researchers noted that as carbohydrate consumption increased, so did the level of triglycerides in the blood of the participants.

People can’t live off of sugars alone. Most people don’t know it but there is a such thing as healthy cholesterol. There has to be a stability in the diet for the most exceptional results. Diets low in fat and high in carbohydrates not only dramatically raised triglyceride levels but significantly reduced levels of HDL, the “good” cholesterol.

Another contributing factor to an out of whack vegetarian diet is, refined white sugars. These high processed sugars are known to increase the rate at which your body EXCRETES calcium, which is directly connected to your skeletal health. The bottom line is, as your sugary and refined carbohydrate intake increases, your bone solidity diminishes.

A good vegetarian meal can take all of 30 minutes to prepare and we’re talking about a very healthy meal too! All it takes to eat better is to Plan to do so. You will certainly need a grocery list and an idea of what you want to eat throughout the week but also decide how often you want to eat your homemade meals. Don’t be lazy! Take care of your body and take the time to put together a nutritious, delicious vegetarian meal. Your mind, body and spirit will thank you for putting in extra work it in the long run.

 

 

Selenocysteine: The amino acid that signal the amino-acid chains, which will become proteins, to stop growing, releasing the protein to perform its intended function in the body.

Selenocysteine is the analog of cysteine having the same structure as that of cysteine. But here sulphur atom is replaced by selenium. The Health Store Selenocysteine is the 21st amino acid found in the ribosome mediated protein synthesis. It  is  present in several enzymes (for example glutathione peroxidases, tetraiodothyronine 5′ deiodinases, thioredoxin reductases, formate dehydrogenases, glycine reductases, and some hydrogenases).  Selenocysteine has a structure similar to that of cysteine, but with an atom of selenium taking the place of the usual sulfur, forming a selenol group which is deprotonated at physiological pH.  Proteins that contain one or more selenocysteine residues are called selenoproteins. There is no single free pool of selenocysteine amino acid that exists within cells to be used

Selenocysteine is the protein, or food form, of the antioxidant selenium, and it is used in almost every cell process in the body. It is one of the only amino acids that is not directly coded into the genetic code, and no free pool of selenocysteine exists within cells to be used. This means that it is an essential amino acid and must be absorbed by cells and obtained through foods to maintain proper levels in the body. The body uses the selenocysteine amino acid to produce selenium. It is believed that this may protect against mercury toxicity, and people with low levels of selenium in their body may be more prone to poor liver function, low muscle mass, premature aging, and even heart disease.

Selenocysteine is created after the digestive system breaks proteins from the diet into its individual amino acids. Selenocysteine is a genetically coded amino acid, serving as a stop codon. Stop codons signal amino-acid chains, which will become proteins, to stop growing, releasing the protein to perform its intended function in the body.  Selenoproteins are formed when the amino acid selenocysteine — often called the 21st amino acid — combines with selenium from the diet in a very specific spot in the amino-acid chain.

Functions and benefits Selenocysteine

  • The important functions of selenocysteine in proteins are its anti –oxidant activity. This is due to its lower pKa and higher reduction potential.
  • It is also used in the preparation of variety of vitamins and lots of other supplements.
  • It is also fortified with livestock feeds.
  • Our body utilizes selenocysteine to form selenium, which is believe to play important role in preventing mercury toxicity as well as enhance liver functions.
  • Selenocysteine is not directly incorporated into other proteins. It provides its function on its own. For this reason it is highly reactive and not used in the same way as the body uses other amino acids.
  •  In some cases a marked decrease in catalytic activity of an enzyme is observed when a selenocysteine residue is replaced with cysteine. This substitution caused complete loss of glycine reductase selenoprotein A activity.
  • Selenocysteine is the 21st naturally occuring amino acid, and is coded for by the RNA codon UGA, which is normally a “stop” signal, but is modified in some organisms to create selenocysteine by a subsequent RNA loop, which is interpreted by a group of genes called the sel group, which are activated by the loop in the mRNA and produce molecule of tRNA for selenocysteine.

Selenocysteine deficiency 

  • People deficient with selenium have lean body mass, prone to premature aging.
  • Weaken the immune system, making the body more susceptible to illness, as well as lead to heart disease or hypothyroidism.

Selenium trace mineral powerful anti-oxidant prevents hemoglobin oxidation.  Synergistically vitamin E together maintain healthy heart liver add zinc relief enlarged prostate cancer prevention.

Rich food sources of  Selenocysteine

  • Animal origin: Selenocysteine animal sources are meat, poultry, chicken, egg, cheese fish, seafood and turkey.
  • Plant origin: Selenocysteine of plant origin contains wheat, oats, corn, rice, nuts especially of Brazil nuts, soybeans.
  •  Selenocysteine is an organic selenium compound found naturally in some plants such as garlic, onions, broccoli and wild leeks grown in high selenium soil.
