Products are not what they seem saturated with harmful additives like preservatives, gums, starches and artificial colors.I look for organic supplements, vitamins, juices, food and dairy. Concern about the products that have a long shelf life. Package in plastic,cans,glass and barrels what is the safest way we can buy products? As consumers we need to read the ingredients on all the products we buy and be aware of standards set by the FDA.
We grow and buy foods in season, then we dry them, can them and freeze them at their peak of freshness. When handled with care we are doing all we can to keep our families safe from harmful additives like preservatives, gums, starches and artificial colors.Cooking food from scratch I know exactly what is going into the meals I prepare for my family.
What can I do to cut out the harmful additives like preservatives, gums, starches and artificial colors in the foods we eat? What about hormones and steroids? This is not good,so limit prepackaged foods,buy foods that are 100% organic without steroids and hormones these are becoming more available as the demands for them get higher and higher.
Are the preservatives that are used to keep the shelf life effecting our health?It seems like it, more and more doctors are telling us to eat fresh, cage free and open rage foods free from preservatives, hormones and pesticides.This should give us a clue that it is not in our best interest to eat foods with preservatives. Eating fresh is easy if you know how to buy, prepare and store foods. I live very close to farms and farmers markets which make that easy when the food is in season. How can I trust the food from other parts of this country or the world tobe safe? The products that are frozen seem tobe a good choice if you don’t like or trust what you see in the produce isles.
We grew up eating foods made from scratch.Eggs and dairy were farm fresh, mom would make her own jelly and can every food that the pantry could hold. Meats purchased from the local butcher and they came from the local farmers who supplied him with pork, beef and chicken. We would freeze large quantities fresh from the farm and you can taste the difference.
Today I do think that the way I grew up was so much better than the way children grow up today. I do everything I can to cook the foods my family likes in a healthier way and that includes buying fresh local produce, meats and dairy. I grow organic tomatoes, peppers, kale, spinach and berries. I do cook from scratch and I use assorted vegetables in my sauces adding fiber, natural antioxidants and vitamins. My spaghetti sauce, loaded with onion,peppers, beets, broccoli, carrots, spinach,tomatoes along with herbs fresh and dried which ever I have on hand. My blender is my friend when it comes to adding veggies to thicken sauces and to enrich the flavor. I make enough to freeze for meals that are quick on days that I am busy.
The products we use on our skin have additives like preservatives and artificial colors. This is not good. So look for products that are free from harmful chemicals, dyes and preservatives.It is not as hard as it use tobe. I like products that are organic with 100% natural ingredients one of my favorite comes from Israel and the main ingredient is sea salt. Makeup that is free from dyes,preservatives and petroleum are found at your local store or you can order what you need online. They have a shorter shelf life so replaced every 12 weeks after you open them.Lotions with vitamin e and aloe are safer then those with a petroleum base.
I aways used moisturizer on my skin. I can’t believe how we would bake in the sun for hours with no concern that we might burn.Eating and drinking anything we wanted or could afford when we left home. That was then and now that I know better I am picky when it come to putting products in or on my body that will increase the way my body ages. Sunscreen or cover up when in the sun is the rule to keeping your skin beautiful. Moisturizer made of natural ingredients keep the signs of aging at bay.
I buy products on the internet like vitamins, probiotics, lotions, juices and supplements that support our health. No one product will make you feel younger and if you find products that support your healthy life style pass it on. We are always looking for something new. Eating a well balanced diet along with exercise will give you the tools needed to live a long healthy life.
This is a drink that I find helps support my body: 4 Oz’s of Go Chi juice and 4 Oz’s of cranberry juice on the rocks it is 8 Oz’s of two of the best anti-ageing supper fruits and it tastes great. You can add 1 1/2 oz of vodka for a supper martini or 4 Oz’s of wine for a refreshing relaxing drink. Drink any thing with alcohol in moderation,of course.
I will serve the Lord my God, and He will bless my bread and my water and take sickness away from me.
