Cholesterol, friend or foe? It seems as if everything we used to believe and understand about cholesterol is no longer relevant. New scientific research has shown that cholesterol is not the bad guy we have been lead to believe. I encourage all of you to do some research on the subject, it will change the way you look at food. I used to be scared to eat butter and healthy fats. We were wrong in believing these awesome sources of energy were damaging to our bodies! Eggs, fatty cuts of meat, butter and coconut oil are some examples of good cholesterol sources.
For more information about Cholesterol, I recommend reading the article found at Natural News. It goes into a lot of depth and detail to help you better understand this subject.
Cholesterol Clarity is an awesome book. I recommend you to read it so you will at least be informed on the new cholesterol fact findings!

Vitamin C, are you taking enough?
Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C benefits your health majorly, as it is a very powerful antioxidant. Your body requires 60-90mg per day, although studies done by Mark Moyad, MD (University of Michigan) suggest taking up to 500mg daily to improve your health.
Vitamin C helps your wounds to heal faster, acts as a natural antihistamine helping you recover from colds, reduces the risk of all types of cancer, helps prevent heart disease, helps diabetics regulate their blood sugar levels, improves symptoms of asthma and much more. Your body needs essential vitamins and minerals to function properly.
Foods high in Vitamin C are peppers, kale, broccoli, kiwis, berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, cantaloupe and peas.
Make sure you eat foods rich in this vitamin and if needed, consider a supplement.

Chocolate Cheesecake Whip
Focusing on our health should be our number one priority. Without it, we will not enjoy our lives to their fullest potential. How many times have we had to miss out on activities we enjoy doing simply because our health restricts us? – Hiking, swimming, dancing! Being overweight limits our abilities to do many of our lifes passions & also shortens our lives. We only have this one chance to enjoy our lives. Let’s not wake up one day regretting having let the chance to reach our full potential pass us by.
Acknowledging our past and present mistakes allow us to move forward. By altering our mindset and trying new things, we give ourselves the chance to live the lives we’ve always dreamed of. No matter how old or sick we are, it is never too late to make positive changes.
Foods that are available to us today are giving us countless diseases that prevent us from living long prosperous lives. These unhealthy foods are rendering us into sickly human beings. There comes a time when trading that taste we enjoy for mere moments for a healthier life has to be a mind shift worth conquering. It takes dedication, determination, will power and a desire that burns brighter than anything else!
I encourage us all to give ourselves the opportunity to discover the lives we were meant to enjoy. I challenge us to give a healthy lifestyle the place it deserves in our lives. After all, when choosing to live and eat healthy, we are embracing God’s greatest gift to us, our lives.
I welcome you to join us in our journey of a healthy conscious lifestyle, but most importantly, we will join you in yours!
