Last year, while I was pregnant and could no longer take any of the "good" cold drugs, I started researching natural remedies and will never go back! This NEVER fails! Tips on Taking Apple Cider Vinegar Don't drink it straight. It’s so acidic that it could harm your tooth enamel and your esophagus. Don't use a lot. “Dilute 1 to 2 tablespoons in a big glass of water, and sip it along with your meals one or two times a day,” Johnston says.
I'm a believer. I've used apple cider vinegar (ACV) for various things, and it works.
natural cold remedy - apple cider vinegar
Guys!!!! This works!!!! My two oldest took it when they started feeling sick and I took it and my breastfed baby did not get sick!!!
Apple cider vinegar.... Just mix two tablespoons with a glass of water or drink it straight (I also add a little apple juice to help camouflage the taste, it is a little strong at first, but you get used to it!) Take it every 8-12 hours and by the next morning your symptoms will be gone…REALLY.
How to STOP a cold in its tracks! BEST cold remedy ever!

30/30 Squat Challenge.

tribander: Hey everyone! A coach at our gym and a great friend Matt studied with Ido Portal. Ido is an amazing movement teacher. He’s having a 30/30 Squat Challenge. The squat, in most parts of the world, is a position of rest. If you are anything like me, it’s a position of pain and hardship. Well here is how to get back to our roots and get back our squat. For 30 days, accumulate 30 minutes in the bottom of a squat. That means 2 minutes here, 5 minutes there all equalling 30 minutes at the end of the day. Can’t get in the bottom of a squat? Do what you can. Elevate your heels to get below parallel and maintain good form, hold onto a post, round your back and be fully relaxed. Do whatever you can…then each day do a little better. It’s that simple. We’ve been doing a little bit in class and taking on the challenge individually. Join officially on Facebook. It’s amazing when your feed blows up with picture after picture of squats. Be Brave…
10 Uses for Chia Seeds

ten uses for chia seeds (scroll down to healthy pudding recipe)
10 uses for chia seeds. I have been making cocktail of Lemon Crystal Light (can use any juice) and chia seeds. Has improved my digestion dramatically!!! It does seems to reduce my food intake. Really healthy too!
the-more-u-know: I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time and finally had the time while the kids are napping and I am (ironically) sipping a Chia Seed Energy Drink (recipe below). If you don’t already use chia seeds, you are missing out! Not only are they gluten/grain free naturally, but one tablespoon of Chia Seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries. Perfect? Almost… they do get stuck in your teeth if you chew them plain (ask me how I know that!). They also give you tons of energy but also won’t keep you awake at night and are supposed to be great for weight loss. Because they can absorb many times their size/weight in liquid, they are great for preventing dehydration during exercise or exposure to heat. Supposedly, the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans used chia as a staple of their diet and as an energy food. Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and they were known as the “Indian Running Food” because runners and warriors would use them for sustenance while running long distances or during battle (source). According to Mountain Rose Herbs they contain “Essential fatty acids alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid, mucin, strontium, 30% protein, Vitamins A, B, E, and D, and minerals including calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, iron, iodine, copper, zinc, sodium, magnesium, manganese, niacin, thiamine, silicon, and anti-oxidants.” Additionally, ”They are currently being used for their nutritional and medicinal properties, endurance for athletes, for suppressing the appetite, weight loss, leveling blood sugar, and for aiding intestinal regularity. Chia seeds readily dissolve into the water, creating a substance that looks like gelatin. This gel-forming action is due to the soluble fiber in the Chia seed. Researchers believe that this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach when Chia seed is consumed, thus creating a physical barrier between carbohydrates and digestive enzymes and slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. Slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar helps with endurance and metabolic rates, which is beneficial for athletes and others”. “For weight loss, Chia seeds are an appetite suppressant, and Chia gel may be used to replace food within recipes. Bulking up a meal with Chia gel helps lessen the amount of food consumed, since Chia gel is primarily made up of water. Chia gel may also be used in place of fats within recipes, even within baked goods. Chia seed has hydrophilic properties, and can absorb more than 12 times its weigh in water. Because of this, Chia seeds can prolong hydration, helping retain moisture and regulate more efficiently the body’s absorption of nutrients and body fluids, including electrolyte balance.” (source) I buy them in bulk (here) and we go through a couple pounds a month, but they are by far one of the most nutrient dense food per ounce that I use, and they help keep the kids full for hours, which is a huge benefit! Convinced? Here are my ten favorite uses if you want to give this “Indian Running Food” a try: 1. As a Safe Egg Substitute I recommend a lot of egg consumption and many of my recipes contain eggs. I occasionally get emails from readers who need to adapt a recipe to avoid eggs, and from my research/testing, Chia Seeds are the best option for this. To substitute for an egg: Use 1 tablespoon finely ground chia seeds (grind them dry in a blender, food processor, or coffee grinder) and 3 tablespoons of water per egg in a baked recipe (does not work in place of eggs for omelets though…) 2. To Make Healthy Pudding My kids favorite use of chia seeds is to make a homemade pudding with them. It’s easy to make and actually really healthy. Our go-to recipe is: 2 cups of coconut milk or other milk 1/2 cup chia seeds 2-3 tablespoons cocoa powder (or to taste)(optional) 1 teaspoon vanilla (or to taste) 1 tablespoon or more sweetener of choice (optional)- We use honey or a few drops of stevia tincture Put in a blender and blend until smooth. Will thicken in about 10 minutes in the fridge. There are endless flavor variations. You can omit the cocoa powder and vanilla and add a cup of strawberries for a strawberry version, or add cinnamon and nutmeg for a Chai Chia Pudding. 3. To Thicken Soup or Gravies If you don’t use cornstarch or thickening agents, it can sometimes be a challenge to thicken different culinary creations. Just add a couple tablespoons of chia seeds (powdered or not) at a time to reach the desired thickness. 4. To Make Grain Free Crackers I’ve made several variations of these, including just mixing them with equal parts coconut milk to thicken, adding some garlic powder and sea salt, and baking at a low temp for a couple hours. I haven’t measured out my recipe yet to post here, but here’s another one that looks great. 5. To Thicken Meatballs Instead of Breadcrumbs I married an Italian, so meatballs get made pretty often around here. His grandmother’s recipe calls for breadcrumbs, which I don’t use, so I just throw in a couple tablespoons of chia seeds (per pound of meat) in place of gluten bombsbread crumbs. Also works to thicken meat-loafs, batters, etc. 6. Sprouted for Salads Ever had little sprouts on a salad at a restaurant? You can make them yourself. Just put some chia seeds in water, drain the water off and leave in a jar for a couple days. Every 12 hours or so, rinse with water and pour the water off. In a day or two, you’ll have little chia sprouts, which leads to the next use of chia seeds: 7. Homemade Chia Pet These are the same seeds used to make the chia pets you can buy for ($20) in the store. Save about ($20) and make your own. Just fill a (porcupine) shaped pot with dirt, sprinkle some chia seeds on top of the dirt and water. Viola! Chia Pet. I also discovered when my kids spilled their chia seeds that they were eating for a snack that they grow in areas that don’t get much sun and that are often trampled (under the treehouse) and prevent mud. Now, the kids get to eat chia seeds under their treehouse often, and the ones that spill prevent mud. A win-win! 8. To Make Homemade Energy Gel Seen the commercial for those new (corn syrup filled) Gatorade Gels and Chews? Here’s a healthier variation that kids will love: Add a couple tablespoons of chia seeds to a cup of coconut water. Let sit for about ten minutes and you’ll have an incredible energy gel! Beats the socks off of Gatorade for hydration and energy and you get to avoid the fake colors, fake flavors and GMO corn Also works for grown ups for endurance activities like running a 5K without training at all (ask me how I know that….)(and come run with me!). 9. As a “Breading” for Baking Fish and Chicken Mixed with some almond flour and garlic powder, or even by itself, Chia Seeds make an excellent “Breading” for fish or chicken. It toasts up well and provides a nutty, crunchy flavor without the grains (another win-win!). 10. Plain Ol’ Chia Seeds Even by themselves, they are a great source of nutrients and also leave you feeling full for a long time. I sometimes chew a couple tablespoons for a quick breakfast on the go, and they leave you feeling surprisingly full! They do stick to your teeth, but wash them down with some coffee and you’ll have energy for hours! FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOKFOLLOW US ON TWITTER [Source]

When it comes to getting the belly of your dreams -- or at least one you don't have to hide under baggy sweaters -- there's one exercise you need to ...
The ab bicycle. This simple move gets a gold star in effective and efficient toning. And its flat-belly power has even been proven in lab: A team of scientists commissioned by the American Council on Exercise tested 13 popular ab exercises and used electromyography equipment to measure muscle activation in the core. (Electromyography measures muscle response when the nerve is stimulated.) The bicycle topped their list of go-to moves for strengthening your core. (video)

Spring workouts bring sexy summer bodies. My favourite thing about summer is how my boobs actually look big in bikini tops! Find something you love about yourself, and focus on that as you workout the areas you want to improve- think "with the abs I'm getting from these sit-ups, my boobs and legs are going to look even sexier! No wonder men can't resist me!"

Soda Side Effects ___ Soda contains many chemicals which can make you feel dehydrated. Soda has high fructose corn syrup which can be a reason for excessive weight gain and heart rate. You can become addicted because it contains caffeine. Caffeine absorbs the calcium from bones which increase the chances of your weak bones. Also yellow sodas contain brominated vegetable oil (as an emulsifier)which is basically a poison if you consume several sodas. Not good stuff.

Reflux? "Suppressing stomach acid only relieves the discomfort of the regurgitation. Suppressing stomach acid DECREASES the ability of the body from digesting food properly and completely into nutrients.
