Eat your medicine

Do you love the Autumn season? I do, but it's the cold, flu, and allergy season I dislike. By including a few of my favorite "super-foods" you can strengthen your immune system and greatly reduce the horrible symptoms that come along with seasonal illnesses.  One of my favorite lines is "eat your medicine," and there is much truth to that statement. Try adding some fresh fruit to breakfast. Kiwi, strawberries, grapefruit, cantalope, oranges, and blueberries are all excellent sources of vitamins B and C and potassium. For your afternoon and evening meals, you should include spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, bell pepper, or sweet potatoes. These are high invitamin A and C and loaded with potassium.

Add extra flavor and power up your immune system with ginger, onions, garlic, and cranberries. We all need antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and antibacterials and herbs are a great way to do just that.

Loving this cooler weather! With the lower temperatures and falling leaves, tissue sales are sure to be on the rise. If you are having problems with a cold or seasonal allergies, be sure to give your immune system a boost. Try adding ginger, garlic, or onions to your daily food intake. Luckily, these are all easily found in any grocery store and are very affordable, not to mention the flavor bonus. Enjoy!

Homemade Apple Butter...sooooo yummy!

GMO vs non-GMO

I was completely shocked at some of these companies! I learned a tough lesson, READ YOUR LABELS!!

These are some of the companies that use non-GMO foods in their products. 2 cheers for the good guys!

vaccines? Are they really necessary?

Please be sure you are making educated decisions about your child's health care. Just because the pediatrician recommends it, does NOT make it necessary. You have the right to say no!
