Happy Monday!!!

WATER BLOG

 

Let’s Talk About the Importance of Water

Water is not only used to fertilize the trees, plants and grass but it is also used to support the body by building a healthy immune system which allows the body to function at optimum levels.

Water is the main component of the human body. Approximately 75% of our body is made up of water, depending on age, body size and gender.

Drinking a sufficient amount of water regularly can be very beneficial for your health; not to mention it’s fat-free, calorie-free, and just plain ole free from the tap.

Smiling About Dandelions

Dandelion – More than just a Weed?
No creature is fully itself till it is, like a dandelion,
opened in the bloom of pure relationship to the sun,
the entire living cosmos.

D.H. Lawrence

Quick Tip Monday!!!

So, you’re walking round your yard and you spot a dandelion. Most likely the first thought is go and get some Weed B Gon and spray the life out of that little creeper;

But before you take off running for the sprayer……STOP!!! And let me tell you about the numerous benefits of this overlooked flower.

Did you know that dandelions are herbs that are used for medicinal purposes? They contain Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K. They also contain a sufficient amount of zinc, iron, magnesium and potassium.

They’re also packed with a load of benefits.

Effects on Blood Sugar

Dandelion has been shown to have an effect on blood sugar levels, acting as a stabilizing agent, buffering against extreme highs and lows. Drinking dandelion tea three times a day is helpful for the management of diabetes, according to Ohio University.
Reduction Of Kidney Stones

Dandelion is high in oxalates and the tea may be consumed at the same times as high-calcium foods, which bind in the intestine, creating protection for the kidneys.
Weight Loss

The leaves of the dandelion plant have a diuretic action on the body, and can be consumed as a tea to help bring on weight loss, as well as reduce excess fluids in the body.

Here are some additional benefits…

 

Note: Dandelion tea has antioxidant properties. Drinking this tea may have anti-aging effects. You can purchase Dandelion tea at any of your local grocery store.

Peanuts! Peanuts! Get Your Peanuts!

Think back to the days when you were a child; the days when life seemed so carefree and simple. The days when a peanut butter and jelly sandwich was one of the best snacks you could have.

Well open up that toy box, pull out that golden brown concoction known as peanut butter, and get ready to play!!! Continue reading
