5 Tips to Avoid Weight Gain over the Holidays

1. Drink Water - and Lots of It
Boring I know - but the reason this tip stays around year after year is because it works. Adequate water intake keeps your metabolism humming along at a maximum rate and staves off hunger cravings as well.
In fact many people mistake thirst for hunger and end up eating to quench their thirst. This results in more calories than you body needs and - you guessed it - excess pounds.
Models and celebrities all know about the powerful slimming effects of drinking water which is why you often see them holding a bottle of water in their hands as they dash through airports or stand around at fashion shows.

2. Increase Your ExerciseYou don't have to double your exercise time or sweat till you fall off your treadmill. Just increase your exercise time a bit every day, maybe ten minutes here, fifteen minutes there. It all adds up.

3. Cut Back Where You Can At Other Meals
Did you know that the average number of calories consumed by one person during a typical Thanksgiving dinner is 7,100! That's about 2 pounds strictly in terms of calories alone.
But not to worry. All you have to do is make small calorie cutbacks at other meals the week before and you'll easily make up for the extra calories.

4. Eat What You Like - But Only A Few Bites
If you absolutely cannot imagine giving up any of your favorite treats this holiday season, give yourself permission to have a bite of everything - but only a bite!
I read somewhere that Jessica Simpson never denies herself any of her favorite foods - but she only allows herself one or two bites. And let's face it the first couple of bites are the best tasting anyways!

5. Don't Eat After 7:00 pm
Experts tell us that the earlier in the day food is eaten, the more likely it is to be burned off. However when you eat late at night, this food is more likely to be stored as fat.
Celebrities like Oprah use this knowledge to their advantage and refuse to eat after a certain time like 7:00 p.m.
So if you know you absolutely must have a sweet indulgence during the day, try to have it before noon. Then towards the end of the day, snack on healthy, lower carb foods like salads, vegetable broth, fruits or lean protein. This keeps your metabolism elevated but won't pack on the pounds.

Top 10 worst sources of Aspartame

We pulled artificial sweeteners out of our diet years ago...since that time I've met so many people who have had negative health effects from using them. Have you tried Honey, or Maple Syrup instead? Or products sweetened with Xylitol or Stevia?

Will Raw Milk be the next Moonshine?

They say patience is the companion of wisdom... on our farm we have a wise goat and a very patient yet persistent little milker.

This is the lifestyle I used to only dream about. I remember flying all over for the "job" and wishing I could just be at home on the farm.

Today I'm so thankful for the opportunity to live life as I so clearly pictured in my mind. I am able to live my dream lifestyle because I partnered with a really good stable 56 yr old company called, "Shaklee"

Do you have a dream you would like to accomplish?
I don't know if what I'm doing would be a fit for you or not, but I do know you can have what you dream of if you really want it with the right partners working by your side. On the lighter side...

Here's a cute and funny video raises awareness that could possibly turn into a BIG issue in North America. As folks decide to fight for the freedom to choose nutrient dense and raw unprocessed milk.

To be honest I didn't realize the health benefits of raw milk until we purchased a couple of nanny goats.We orginially purchased them to help keep everything trimmed around the farm. (at least that was my excuse to get em) We bred them to have the experience of cute little kids running around to play with.

The researcher in me kicked in and I started learning the health benefits of raw milk! It wasn't long before we sold the babies and started experiencing the benefits of having as much fresh raw milk as we could possibly use on the farm. I've gotta say there is nothing better than a smoothie made with fresh raw goats milk.

After making home made yogurt and realizing how much sweetener is put in commercial store bought yogurt I don't plan on consuming it again anytime soon.

I even saw an article on pinterest for using raw milk as a treatment for pink eye. Natural raw unprocessed milk has the "good" bacteria (probiotics) that is killed off when milk is pasturized. It's the "good" bacteria that will help your body naturally fight off viruses, infection etc.. by boosting your immune system.

So what do you think? Could Raw Milk be the next Moonshine?

"Alfalfa " The Great Healer

Alfalfa, called by one eminent biologist, "THE GREAT HEALER", has been enthusiastically backed by many noted doctors, biologists, food and health authorities, who tell us that it contains more of the needed essential elements than almost any other plant or substance. The lack of elements is now considered to be one of the principal contributing causes of most human ailments.

Along with its other amazing qualities, it has been found that alfalfa contains Vitamin U. Dr. Garnett Chaney, well-known food scientist of Stanford University, CA, has published his findings on Vitamin U, and asserts that it has great possibilities as as aid for peptic ulcers. In fact, according to the record, 80% of the ulcers so treated were healed.

Alfalfa is the richest land grown source of trace minerals. The roots of this perennial plant burrow deep into the soil and absorb the important trace minerals and elements such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous. Combined with chlorophyll and other organic salts, these factors seem to balance the so-called salt system of the body and act as a natural diuretic.

Alfalfa is most important for its Vitamin A and enzyme content. Vitamin A is important in building healthy skin, both outer and inner skin. The outer skin complexion improves, dryness is prevented and the skin becomes less susceptible to infection. The inner skin, or mucous membrane, is also greatly aided. The lining of the throat, nose, stomach and intestines are all improved with Vitamin A.

Enzymes are organic catalysts which promote chemical changes. Alfalfa contains the following seven enzymes: Protase, which acts in the digestion of proteins: Coagulase, Emulsin and Peroxidase, which have direct action upon the blood: Amylase and Invertase which act in the conversion of starches and sugars: and Lipase, a fat splitting enzyme. Hence, Alfalfa greatly assists digestion both by promoting healthy mucous membrane tissue, and providing enzymes which convert foods into useable form. As many or our enzymes are destroyed by routine cooking and food processing, it is beneficial to take a few alfalfa tabs before each meal.

The use of alfalfa increases one's alkaline reserves and helps to offset the enervating effect of fatigue acids. It is beneficial to who have kidney or bladder trouble because it makes excretion of the kidney less acid and therefore less irritating to the urinary tract. The U.S.Dept. of Agriculture states that while the average fruit or vegetable is from one to ten units alkaline, alfalfa is 130 units alkaline. This alkaline nature makes the use of anti-acid tablets for digestion unnecessary.

Chlorophyll is plentiful in alfalfa, and chlorophyll is known as a body cleanser, infection fighter and nature's deodorizer. This wonder of nature possesses the property of breaking down poisonous carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in turn, thus inhibiting or reducing the action of anaerobic bacteria. Try this experiment. If your dog has bad odor or bad smelly breath try crushing a couple of alfalfa tabs on his food.

Alfalfa is rich in Vitamin K, which helps develop fibrin, which in turn protects against hemorrhaging by helping the blood to clot properly. It contains 20,000 to 40,000 units of Vitamin K for every 100 grams.

Alfalfa is being used as a means of bringing relief to arthritis sufferers and there are approximately 10,000,000 arthritics today. The estimate is that 97% of all individuals over 40 have some form of arthritic disease. These individuals would do their aching joints a blessed favor by consuming some alfalfa in the tablet form. Patients who have had 18 alfalfa tablets, six, three times a day and some extra B-COMPLEX are free from pain and hands are limber. (Catharyn Elwood's "Feel Like a Million".)

From the 2003 Shaklee catalog, page 19: "includes alfalfa, spearmint, and more; contains no fungicides, bacteriocides, synthetic hormones, growth regulators, or chemicals; 10 Alfalfa Complex tablets provide 300 mg of calcium, about as much calcium as in a glass of milk."

Update From the 2013 Shaklee Catalog: Alfalfa is a store house of nutrients. It's taproot reaches down as deep as 20 feet, searching out nutrients and minerals from deposits in the soil while it's leaves gather large amounts of chlorophyll through the natural process of photosyntheses.

Alfalfa complex is a Shaklee Signature Formula orginally developed by Dr. Shaklee. We use only the finest alfalfa grown in California, ensuring a wide range of nutrients, including calcium and phosphorus, as well as chlorophyll, bioflavonoids, trace minerals, and vitamins.

  • Natural source of alfalfa
  • Each serving provides 300 mg of calcium, about as much as a glass of milk
