Detox of the Tropics Smoothie

{ Enjoy on Inflammation Detox }

Detox of the Tropics Smoothie:
* 2 cups frozen mango
* 2 tbs wheatgrass powder or 1-2 wheatgrass ice cubes
* 1 cup organic orange juice
* 1/2 cup almond milk or coconut milk
* 1-2 tbs lime juice
* 1 c. chia gel (learn how to make below)
To make chia gel:
* 1-2 tbs chia seeds
* 1 cup water mix together, let set for a few minutes for the chia seeds to gel up.
**Mix all ingredients of smoothie in blender and enjoy**
I love smoothies! They are a quick and easy solution for any meal when you are in a pinch. I love them even more when they are loaded with superfoods and nutrient rich foods to keep you fueled and the health benefits soaking into your body. This delish Detox of the Tropics smoothie is sure to keep your going and your energy level elevated! I hope you enjoy it!! Oh, and this does contain wheatgrass powder,which will make it green, but with the fruit in it you will not be able to taste it! Trust me!!
How about some benefits of wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is probally one of my favorite greens or grass, lol. Whichever you decide to consider it. You can’t taste it when you mix it up with some fruit; not sure why, but you can’t. There is a couple ways to get in some super healthy wheatgrass. You can buy already package wheatgrass ice cubes { but they can cost almost $14 }, you can grow it yourself indoors & juice it and then freeze it into cubes {which is what I like to do }, or you can get it in a powder. I’ve only used the powder form a couple times. It’s ok, I just prefer to juice it, freeze it, and toss into ziplock bags. Wheatgrass is an amazing healer because, it contains chlorphyll, all minerals known to man, Vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, & K. It is extremely rich in protein and contains 17 amino acids, which are after all the building blocks of protein. It is also highly alkaline & can help with keeping your body’s pH in balance!
If you are new to the idea of wheatgrass I would start out with the cubes that you can buy, which are usually at Vitamin Cottage or Whole Foods; or try the wheatgrass powder. If you like it & want it in every smoothie you make I suggest growing your own & juicing it! I’ve listed a couple places below for reference of where to get these things! I hope you enjoy the smoothie & let me know how it tastes!!
Some more great info on wheatgrass can be found here.

Powers of Cinnamon & 18 Ways to use Medicinally!

 

Before, I had learned the many benefits of cinnamon, I thought it smelled good and was used in baking. That was about the end of my knowledge for it. However, cinnamon has such super powers that it was documented in use by Ancient Chinese herbalists as early as 2700 B.C. Cinnamon comes from the bark of an Asian tree; cinnamon sticks are actually pieces of dried bark. Cinnamon had been recommened by ancient herbalist for fever, diarrhea, and menstrual problems and still is today. It is also known that cinnamon was an ingredient for ancient embalming recipes. In the Bible, Moses was instructed to use cinnamon in Holy annointing oil* (see Biblical Reference below). After the fall of Rome; trading between Asia and Europe became difficult, however; cinnamon still made it’s way west for it’s prized healing powers. In ancient times if you had 24 oz of cinnamon it would be about equivalent to having 24 oz of pure gold today. In fact, modern medicine has proved time and time again that cinnamon is valuable for preventing infection, cancer, disease, pain, colds, coughs, flus, and gastrointestnal issues, as well as many other aliments. * Biblical Reference: Exodus 30:22-28; Proverbs 7:17; Song of Soloman 4:13-14

18 Uses for Cinnamon Medicinally:

Here are the uses:
1.) Cinnamon contains the natural chemical, cinnamaldehyde, which studies show it increases the hormone progesterone and decreases testosterone in women, which helps balance hormones and helps infertility.
2.) Helps relieve menstrual pain
3.) Contains fiber, calcium, iron, and maganese
4.) Natural food preservative; inhibits bacteria growth and food spoilage
5.) The University of Texas has studies that show cinnamon may reduce the proliferation of cancer cells; espically those in luekema and lymphoma
6.) Research at The University of Texas, Department of Experimental Therapuetics, and Cytokine Research labs show cinnamon reduces chronic inflammation linked to neurological disorders: Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, MS, brain tumors, and meningitis.
7.) Goes well with sweet and savory dishes 🙂
8.) 1/2 a teaspoon a day of cinnamon can help lower bad cholesterol (LDL)
9.) Cinnamon helps treat type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and increasing amount of insulin production in the body, stablizes blood sugar; great for weightloss 10.) Antifungal properties in cinnamon have been said that candida cannot live within a cinnamon environment
11.) Anti-clotting effect on blood
12.) When honey and cinnamon are combined helps with immunity, coughs, colds, flu, and relieves arthritis pain and cramps
13.) Just the smell of cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory
14.) Fightd E. coli in unpasturized juices
15.) Natural remedy for eliminating headaches and migrane relief
16.) Helps with indigestion and prevents ulcers
17.) Studies show cinnamon completlly suppress’ the cause of most urinary tract and yeast infections
18.) Cinnamon is an antiseptic that helps kill bacteria that causes tooth decay and gum disease.
Cinnamon isn’t just for baking! Be sure you try one of these remedies before you head for the phamacy again for a nasty chemmical filled OTC drug!

Product Review: JEM’s Raw Chocolate Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter

Aww…this is a new love of mine in the food department. I had been looking for an organic almond butter that I would love and actually like. I loved peanut butter with delish organic apples and celery, but had been looking for an equally delish almond butter. While looking for my almond butter I wanted it to not have ANY soy, soy letchin or any crap and less than 7 ingredients; I got this baby with only 5 ingredients. JEM Chocolates in a great little company out of Oregon that makes organic dark chocolate and almond butters. I got the cinnamon maca almond butter. What really stud out to me is that this is a superfood almond butter! You get the healthy fats of the almonds, the metabolism and blood sugar leveling cinnamon, and the hormone balancing powerhouse of red maca! The total ingredient are: raw, organic almonds; cinnamon, coconut palm sugar, vanilla extract, red maca powder. Five simple ingredients; that’s it. This is so good with apples and celery and just to plain out scoop in your spoon and take a spoonful; I’m gently of this; but it is so rich (in a good way) that a tablesoon of it is enough. This really helps me from the cravings of wanting to grab so sugar and run down to the gas station and grab a candy bar in a sugar craving rage! This does happen; but this almond butter has saved me! haha Actually I haven’t had a gas station run in awhile; I’ve started just paying for diesel at the pump instead of going in so that I am not tempted 🙂

I snagged the almond butter on Amazon, because there was several things that I needed/wanted to order. The cost on Amazon was $11.99 for 6oz. It’s a little pricey, but when you look at the fact there is red maca in there it made it worth it to me. They also have a couple other varities: coconut cardamon almond butter and maqui camu super berry almond butter! I can’t wait to try these ones as well. They also have dark cacao chocolate bars and a chocolate hazelnut spread! Yummy.
All in all I thought this was a great buy; it’s totally going to be a staple in my pantry for a long, long time 🙂

Product Review: Mrs. Meyers Clean Day & Caldrea

{ Original Post Date: 5/29/12 }

Spring and Summer is the time when new life begins and when people normally dust off the cleaning gloves, pull out the rakes, and start packing and boxing and throwing out and cleaning away! I thought it would be wonderful to share with you two products I recieved from Caldrea; a wonderful company who has a full line of luxurious cleaning products for the whole house! Caldrea is also the parent company for Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day! I recieved Caldrea liquid dish soap in Palmarosa Wild Mint and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day NEW 68 Load laundry detergent in Lemon Verbana! Yum!! I was very impressed with both products and will be using them in the future!

Caldrea, like I said before is the parent company to Mrs. Meyer’s. Caldrea uses essential oils and natural ingedients to have a grime and dirt kicking formula to tackle the toughest messes around your home and more! At Calrea they use nature for natural fragrance and cleaning potency. Every single product they have and use is free of parabens, formaldehyde, ammonia, chlorine, phosphate, petroleum distillate, and phthlatates! That is amazing and wonderful! Scents that are available from Caldrea are: Palmarosa Wild Mint, Mandrain Vetriver, Ginger Pomelo, Lavender Pine, Basil Blue Sage, and Sweet Pea! Yum, sounds like you could eat them! I personally love the Palmarosa Wild Mint; I haven’t used the others but I will very soon!

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products are just as amazing! Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Days was inspired by an Iowa Homemaker named; Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer, who is a mother of 9!! Her daughter, Monica, thought that cleaning products should be free of nasty chemicals and should “smell nice, like a garden, but still work like the dickens on daily dirt and grime!” She named the company after her mother, Mrs. Meyer’s. I love that! Again, like Caldrea, Mrs. Meyers uses essential oils and theraputic aromatherapy for cleaning!

A home should smell fresh, clean, and lovely; not nasty, bleachy, and medicinal! It should smell like sunshine! I find that not only with the nasty chemicals and toxins found in traditional cleaners, they are also horrible and nasty smelling and I personally do not want that at all! I’m with Monica, I want my home to, “smell nice, like a garden!”

 

Caldrea Palmarosa Wild Mint Liquid Dish Soap:
I have never, ever got excited or wanted to wash dishes! Having an older home, I don’t have a dishwasher and with traveling all over the US the hubby for work and living out of 5th wheel, don’t have one there either! However, after using Caldrea and thier liquid dish soap in Palmarosa Wild Mint, it made me want to wash dishes! It smells so heavenly, alluring, and clean! The mint gives a nice scent that is very calming and the Palmarosa is subtly floral, but not too much. All you need is about a squirt or two of the soap to do dishes and it goes a long way. It gave the right amount of natural, clean smell I wanted in the home without smelling un-natural. The Palmarosa Wild Mint soap has soap bark extract, which is natures best degreaser! I didn’t know that until I started to use this product! That is one thing I love about trying out new products; you learn new things! Overall this dish soap gets 5 stars from me across the board, I love it! The size of the bottle is 16 oz for the price of $9.00. The packaging is very clean, sleek, and stylish! I have been using the product for about 2 weeks now and if you look at the picture above I haven’t even got to the top of the beginning of the labeling on the bottle! Which is saying alot because I always feel like I go through dish soap like crazy!! I loved this product and am a customer for life.

 

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day 68 Load Lemon Verbana Laundry Detergent:
This is a super concentrated, 4X laundry detergent that smells like a bucket of lemons! Yum! This laundry detergent comes to you concentrated 4X, allowing you to only use 1 TBS per Load!! Now, how often do you feel you are using a full cup or more of laundry detergent? I know I do; well did before I started making my own. Sometimes you just don’t want to make your own, or don’t care to. If not, Mrs. Meyer’s is a wonderful company to use as well. Clean and all natural products and essential oils are used here as well to clean your home and laundry! I was sent this detergent in Lemon Verbana and loved the fresh lemony smell, it’s hard working, but gentle for delicates as well. I always do a “test” with laundry. I wash hubbys dirty work cloths with the detergent, if it gets it clean it’s a winner. Then I do my delicates; if it gets them cleans but keeps the form, shape, and fabric protected and soft it’s a winner as well. Mrs. Meyer’s past both tests!  Stain fighting enzymes, borax, essential oils, and plant derived ingredients are used here to help get your world clean! And does it terrifically! The 68 load detergent comes in a 32oz bottle for $15.99!

All in all, both these products are amazing and will be used in my home for times to come! I highly recommend both of them, at least for you to try once and see if they work for you!

Product Review: One Love Organics

On this wonderful holistic, organic lifestyle change and journey; I am so
excited when I come across another amazing company that is bringing women, and men and children; amazing, organic, and safe skincare, cosmetics, etc. When I came across One Love Organics, I thought; “What a beautiful name”. Sadly, I am one of those people who judges my products on visual first! But, to me I think it’s important it lets me think and know that this company is proud; it’s like walking out of the house dressed and fixed up! Your proud of yourself! Suzanne LeRoux is the wonderful creator of One Love Organics. She is a true believer in natural products, as well as alternative, holistic healing. She has studied holistic nutrition, herbs, and aromatherapy. While she was a lawyer! After 5 years of being a beauty alchemist, One Love Organics was born! She and One Love Organics support Non-profit Organizations that benefit families. Suzanne is an artisian with true heart!

I purchased the One Love Organics Essentials To-Go! I was blown away at how wonderful the products were! I recieved: Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm, Brand New Day: Microderm & Masque, Easy Does It foaming cleanser, Morning Glory Brightening/Complexion Booster, Love Springs Eternal Youth Perservation Serum, and My New Best Friend Shammy! The Essentials To-Go was a great way for me to try the products before buying the regular size. I got the Morning Glory and Love Eternal Springs in a sample and was very greatful. I am going to be traveling this weekend to Colorado so this could not have came at a better time! All of the product came in an adorable little black and white polkadot costmetic tote. It’s adorable, I love it! Everything fits in it, as well as my basic essentails for makeup! The cost for the Essentials To-Go Pack was $48.00 and was money well spent!
The Skin Savior Beauty Balm: This is the most amazing little “savior”. There is so much you can do with this wonderful balm! It is a moisturizer, makeup remover, performance booster, lip treatment, hair tamer, natural illuminizer,
treatment foundation, you can add this to your mineral makeup, I even put a little on my scalp and left on for awhile and then rinsed and rubbed through. *I even used it as a texturizer for hair one day* It has coconut oil *YEA* in it so, therefore it is a natural sunscreen for your face as well. The ingredients in Skin Savior include: coconut oil, sweey soy seed oil, beeswax, mango seed butter, chia seed extract, oat extract, orange peel extract, jojoba seed oil, vanilla extract, natural, non-gmo vitamin E. The price for this lovely little “savior” is $39. This is the multi-tasker you will not be able to live without! I promise you that one!
Brand New Day: Microderm & Masque:
Have you ever been to a salon and they
are telling you, “Oh, you need a microderm session, several treatments, and it will only cost you $100/treatment! WTF?! Ok, sorry but I am not paying that kind of money for that! How would you like it if I were to tell you, you needed no crazy machine, no breaking the bank, and that you can get your own microderm at home for the amazing low price of $39? Would you take it? I know I would. Well, One Love Organics created this beautiful little Microderm and Masque called, Brand New Day! It has antioxidants, and peptides, and it’s amazing and will have your skin glowing! You can use it every morning, using 1-2 tsp mixed in with some water or double duty with the Easy Does It foaming cleanser and gently scrub your face! Or add some raw honey or plain greek yogurt for a mask for 15 minutes! It’s devine! And smells ever so yummy! Some of the ingredients include: baking soda, rice bran, organic milk powder, silk peptide powder, organic pinapple fruit extract, and allantoin. This is another keeper, it smells heavenly, cleans and exfoliates
Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser:
Ok, first of all, once again I love, One Love
Organics, not only is the Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm a multi-tasker, but the Easy Does It foaming cleanser is as well! You can use this *bad girl* to
cleanse your face, body, and wash your hair! Easy Does It is soothing, cleansing, it softens, protects, and is simply amazing! Easy Does It contains
glycerin, bark extract, apple extract, apple oil, and honeysuckle extract. It smells heavenly and is so simple and pure! It felt so soft on my skin and was amazing on my hair and entire body. Gentle, safe, and effective for your entire body. There is no need to have a body wash, shampoo, and face cleaner…you can just use Easy Does It! Seriously, it was awesome! My husband thought I was crazy when I told him to wash his hair and body with it. “I thought you washed your face with that?”, me, “I did, but I also used it for my hair and body, you try it!”. And guess what? He loved it! I love using him as a genia pig to try out things as well, it makes sense to make sure everyone in the house will like it! You can pick up Easy Does It for $29.00. However, if you want  a bigger bottle for the shower it is $79 for 32 oz, and this product goes a long way!
Morning Glory Brightening/Complextion Booster:
Ok, I am not trying to sound full of myself here or anything, but everywhere I go alot of people tell me that I have a beautiful complexion, this is on a girl who feels she has to wear makeup and doesn’t feel pretty or that I have pretty skin. My husband and I went to Ulta to pick up a makeup brush I wanted and before we left 3 women told me they would kill for my skin. The hubby said, “See, I told you, you were beautiful.” Aww, I felt pretty for the whole day! With that said, Why wouldn’t I continue to do and use anything and everything that would keep my pretty complexion? Well, I have found it! One Love Organics Morning Glory Brightening/Complextion Booster serum is so amazing! I honestly could see a difference in my skin within one week. Actually all I used on Sunday for makeup was One Love’s Skin Savior, a little bronzer/blush, a little eye liner, and some mascara! My hubbby said that I looked so refreshed and glowing that day, even a friends girlfriend asked me if I was preggers “cause my face was glowing and dewey! OMG, I wish, but I was very thankful for the compliment! I honestly believe this company has the products to be “makeup optional”. Now, Morning Glory, this little baby is packed with a huge punch of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and stimulates, brightens, tightens, and tones your skin. I call it, my little face lift in a bottle! Morning Glory contains; Raspberry Leaf, lemon balm, sweet mint, and essential oils of: lemon, ylang ylang, and peppermint. You can grab “my face lift in a bottle” haha or Morning Glory for $48 I recieved this as a little extra, in a small sample; you can bet I’m buyin this when I run out of my sample!
Love Eternal Springs Youth Perservation Serum: A girls best friend, next to
One Love Organic’s New Best Friend Shammy. Love Springs Eternal Serum is anti-aging, smoothes skin, and wrinkles and reduces them, as well as giving your skin the essential fatty acids it needs. Perserve your youthfullness with this serum, I promise you will love yourself for doing using this product. It felt so delicous on the skin and did what it was suppose to; my skin has felt firmer since using it. I don’t have wrinkles so I am not sure about that; however I don’t want any, so you can bet your bottom dollar I am using it to prevent it!  It is packed with watermelon seed oil, date seed extract, rose oil, neroli oil, frankincense oil, palamarosa oil, and natural vitamin E. You can grab your youth serum for $59.

My New Best Friend Skin Shammy: I always used a wash cloth to wash my face with. Isn’t that what we all use? Well, after you use the My New Best Friend Skin Shammy for One Love Organics you will start using your face clothes to scrub the toliets! The skin shammy is 100% pure dermalogical grade fiber chamois! One cloth is good up to 200 washes and is so soft and gentle and amazing. You simple let cleanse it and air dry it. I always felt that regular wash clothes were a little too rough on my face and it was always really red after washing, but not with the skin shammy! I loved, loved, loved it!!! You can snag 2 of the for $24! Sweetness!

My overall view on One Love Organics was that I am a customer for life! I honestly loved every single product, and was able to try every product. They have everything you need.

Product Review: DeodoMom Deodorant

Brought to you by 30 Some Weeks is DeodoMom. This deodorant which is availble in a jar or rollon is a safe alternative of deodorant safe enough for pregnant mothers and all members of the family. The only ingredient found in this deodorant is magnesium hydroxide, which is safe enough to eat mineral and a little water. It is not scented and hopefully never will be.
Many of you I am sure use anti-perspirants; but it is not the wisest choice for you. They are usually aluminuim based and acutally created a “plug” that blocks your glands from sweating. You need to sweat! That is how your body gets out the toxins and how your bodies themostat cools you down. Aluminium is not required for our bodies, therefore there is no reason for you to be applying it on your biggest organ; skin. Too much can start to create trouble with your metabolism. Your liver is what gets rid of it, however, if too much is in the body deposits of it can be leached into your heart, brain, and other organs and systems.

I was asked by the creators of DeodoMom to review this product. I will be honest I was a little nervous at first. No catchy packaging or pretty bottles were in the works here. Just a simple bottle and jar with a green label stating what it was, it’s ingredients, and how to use. Pretty simple, huh? I started to wonder why there was little thought put into the packaging; then I realized, does packaging really make the product? No. Do pretty colors make the product work? No. Etc, etc. I can tell ya I have bought many things in pretty packaging and they most likely didn’t work. But this deodorant actually did. I didn’t have B.O.; I did sweat ( ’cause you are suppose too!!) But there was no bad smell. I was quite pleased with the product. I was able to try it in the jar and the rollon. Personally I liked the rollon much better, less messey and just used to rolling on deodorant I guess. Both contain the same product. It’s purely your choice which way you would like to go. Would I order this for myself? I’m pretty sure that I will. I’ve had the product for about a month and haven’t ran out yet. I wanted to wait until I was done completely, but it’s lookin like it’s going to be awhile. 🙂

The price for DeodoMom is $10 for a jar and $12 for the rollon. You can contact 30 Some Weeks; creator of DeodoMom at www.30someweeks.com I am confident that they can answer any of your questions and that you will be satisfied. Have a blessed day yall!

xoxo,
Heather
