Learn to Love Sleep

Sleep is a gift, something that’s just as important as the food on our plate and our exercise habits. It’s the time of the day that our body resets itself, detoxifies, and allows us to be able to conquer the next day ahead. Depression, weight gain, stress, and even food cravings can all occur when we don’t get enough rest. For some of us, our sleep needs may be 8 hours, and others it could be 9 or 10… get enough until you wake up at the same time each day without the need for an alarm clock.

15 Proven Red Palm Oil Benefits For A Good Health – Howtocure.com

Since I was diagnosed with Fuch’s Corneal Dystrophy, I’ve been researching health and nutrition for the eyes. Fuch’s dystrophy is the death of the cells in the cornea and can lead to blindness. The only known cure is a cornea transplant. The only positive of this whole mess is it’s slow growing. If I ever do need a cornea transplant, it won’t be for 15 to 20 year.. It is my intention, however, to stop this genetic disease in it’s tracks. I have absolutely no desire for a cornea transplant. So I dove headlong into eye research and stumbled across the super health benefits of red palm oil. It’s jam packed with eye healthy nutritients.

To learn more about

my Fuch’s Dystrophy story,

FOLLOW THIS LINK.

Red palm oil is a source of, or rich in:

  • phytonutrients
  • antioxidants
  • natural carotenes (pro-vitamin A)
  • tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E)
  • co-enzyme Q10
  • omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids

Red palm oil has following vitamin A and vitamin E profile:

  • Carotenes 100ppm
  • Tocotrienols 400ppm

I know what some of you may be thinking. Isn’t this oil the stuff that destroys the environment in order to harvest it? Doesn’t it destroy the orangutan habitats? I said the same thing when I first read about red palm oil. In fact, I’ve avoided palm oil for years because I thought it was environmentally destructive. However, there are companies who have found ways to harvest it safely, without destroying the environment or habits. I use Nutiva brand. Here is a quote from their store site:

The region in Ecuador where our Organic Red Palm Oil is grown has numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families. Palm oil grown in Southeast Asia is associated with destruction of rainforest and orangutan habitat. It is important to note that in addition to the work we do with Natural Habitats, orangutans do not live in Ecuador and our red palm does not contribute to deforestation or habitat destruction.

Eat Good Fats

Healthy fats are like fuel for a good mood. They’re one of the most important things to include in your diet to promote a healthy mood (and a balanced metabolism). Healthy fats also promote good heart health, reduce cholesterol, and contain none of the harmful side effects associated with animal-based saturated fats. Go for raw coconut, avocados, almonds, walnuts, acai fruit, flax seeds, cashews, hemp seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds or tahini, pecans, and olives.

Eat for Your Hormone Health

Our hormones completely control how we feel, act, think, and even how we treat others. And guess what controls our hormones for the most part? Aside from sleep and our lifestyle, our diets do. Though rest, stress management, and staying active play a part, nothing acts like directions for your cells like your food does. Certain foods can disrupt hormonal function and possibly even lead to mood disorders, anxiety, or depression. Some of the most common foods to avoid are: dairy, gluten, processed foods, and sugar.

Kooky Grape Kefir~ My recipe for Concord Grape Water Kefir

I recently posted an article on the benefits of probiotic rich foods. Here’s my own personal recipe for Concord Grape Water Kefir!

The Purple Almond Wellness Kitchen

Hello, my name is Tamara Hoerner and I am a sodaholic. That’s why, about 18 months ago, in an effort to break my addiction, I decided to try making my own gut friendly soda, otherwise known as water kefir. I quickly discovered that this was the exact thing I needed get away from soda and get my body, and gut, back on track. It’s bubbly, like soda and best of all it cut my sugar cravings! It’s also a wonderful way to get reluctant family members to consume probiotics!

I stopped making water kefir at the beginning of 2020. We were preparing to sell our home and move across the country, from Virginia to Colorado. Now that I’m settled, I decided it was absolutely time to make some kefir again. I missed it. I mean what better way to get healthy probiotics into your gut than with homemade soda?

Kefir…

Don’t Over Sit Your Welcome

We need to stand more throughout the day, even if that’s while chatting with friends, talking on the phone, or just getting up in between nightly relaxing activities before bed. If you like to watch television, be sure not to sit there for hours on end while doing so. If you work at a computer all day, get up and move around or try to stand and work however possible. Sitting too long makes you tired, can cause brain fog, increases your insulin levels, and slows down your metabolism. It can even lead to a bad mood, and antsy nature. The body likes to move; give it what it needs.
