  • Focus on eating high-quality foods in appropriately sized portions.

Consider quality, not just calories

 “A calorie is a calorie” is an oft-repeated dietary slogan, and not overeating is indeed an important health measure...

BY ANTHONY WILLIAM

If you’re drawn to enemas and colonics, make aloe vera a part of your life and healing diet—consuming it offers a colon cleanse all on its own.

15 Foods that last longer than you think

Thanks To Linda Loosli from foodstoragemoms.com

15 Foods That Last Forever

1. Honey

If you can buy raw honey, it will last forever. Please remember that storing honey in 5-gallon buckets is not the best idea. You may have to chisel the honey to use after a few years. It will crystalize, which is fine if it’s stored in quart mason jars. You can set your jars outside in the heat of the summer and it will eventually go back to its liquid state. If you microwave the jars you will lose some critical nutrients in the honey.

2. Sugar

Sugar is very inexpensive and it will store indefinitely if it does not get moisture in it. If you find a bucket of sugar that is rock hard, it has gotten moisture in it. Please keep it dry and stored in a cool place...

10 Foods Filled With Probiotics for your gut

Thanks to Alex Sifferlin from Time Magazine

One of the most crucial parts of our body when it comes to health is our microbiome—the trillions of bacteria that live in our gut. Scientists are learning that the bacterial communities we live with are linked to everything from body weight to asthma to acne. Having the right balance of bugs may keep us well in the long term. Some bacteria in the gut are good for our health, while other strains raise our risk for disease.

Probiotics are bacteria that are very similar to or the same as good-bacteria colonies already in our gut. They’re in many foods on this list, including yogurt and sauerkraut. Prebiotics, on the other hand, are a type of plant fiber often found in vegetables that nourishes good bacteria...
