I must come clean I have a tea addiction

There are many many people round the globe who don’t mind a good cup of tea. To be quite honest it stimulates memories and thoughts, good times had in me since I was a kid. The mums all coming over to each others home and making scones, biscuits, breads and pikelets; mmmmm the smells that came from those kitchens was powerfully delicious and sadly not something that is around anymore.

The kettle whistling meant the tea was on and us kids could come in and sample the fresh home baked delights. As a child your tea addiction was now born.

I could go on about the history of tea and bore most people who just like to drink the stuff and find the flavour strangely addictive. I could list all the different kinds of tea and give all the reasons why and times when you would drink those teas, but I’m not going to!  Today I want this article to be all about me, well not me exactly but more to the point, I want to talk about my tea addiction.

 

Addictions are thought of as bad things. So what about the Tea?

Now I have always loved a god cup of that full leaf flavour of tea and have even been partial to the occasional tea bag or 2 but for the most part of my life I always identified as having an addiction to my coffee, in fact in my younger day I was known for consuming up to 20 cups a day. I was always seen with a cup of coffee in hand where ever i went.  Funny that hey

However just recently over the last few months I have developed an addiction to My Tea, and not just any type of standard leaf tea.

OH NO!! not me I have crafted an addiction to a very very special blend of tea and it definitely is not just any type of tea.

My taste buds and peace of mind have chosen a very special tea blend for it’s addiction and one that is not readily available down in the local grocery store

This tea really is something special. The smell alone is enough to soothe your senses yet excite you t the same time.

What I love the most is and I don’t say this lightly but there is absolutely no need for milk, cream or sugar. You can dink it hot or cold and it is refreshing yet calming and man those spice and fruity notes really dance on the tongue. I’m in love and then in heaven with every cup,

Matter of fact I am having one as I write this post. I love mine with a drizzle of really good quality Honey just for that added fragrance and flavour and nice and steamy hot.   Here are some more facts about this gorgeous herbal tea .

How To Cook Broccoli

One of my most favourite vegetables to eat is broccoli.!

I read a lot, in particular anything to do with health and good health really interests me. I also love my food especially the good old vegetables, fruits and some meats.

However if I have to I can do without the meat, for me it is not a must have item.

All these years and I had no idea that I was preparing my broccoli for cooking all wrong. I knew eating it raw offered many more nutritional benefits! but I never knew there was a particular way to prepare your broccoli before you cook it to get the most benefit from all the goodness broccoli hides inside.

 HOW TO COOK BROCCOLI

I came across this article about broccoli and similar vegetables by respected doctor and author Michael Greger M.D. FACLM  .

His article on the right way to cook broccoli to gain the most nutrient content from this powerhouse vegetable was so insightful and detailed, I am sharing it here on my website so that you can benefit from this technique to better your health as well

If you don’t eat Broccoli then this article may very well change your mind if you want to live longer and healthier at the same time reducing your risk of developing cancer.

Check out the video below on the very important enzyme in Broccoli we need to preserve to eat!

In this video Michael Greger M.D goes over the importance of a particular enzyme in broccoli and how to best prepare and cooked the vegetable to maximise your consumption of this powerhouse enzyme that has been linked to a variety of healthy benefits for the body

The main active ingredient in broccoli is thought to be sulforaphane, which may protect our brains, protect our eyesight, protect our bodies against free radicals, boost our detoxification enzymes, and help prevent and treat cancer.

Forever Bee Honey®

Bees make honey by travelling from flower to flower, removing the rich nectar. The nectar is temporarily stored in their bodies, where it mixes with their enzymes before being deposited into beehives.

Throughout the ages, honey has been recognized as a premium natural food – a storehouse of energy that is easily digestible. This great-tasting, all natural sweetener is loaded with nature’s goodness.

Easy to digest, Forever Bee Honey® is a quick and natural energy source for any occasion!

Honey contains many ingredients needed to maintain good health, including 78% sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose), and other minerals, vitamins, enzymes, proteins and amino acids.

Forever Bee Honey contains only natural ingredients.
This great-tasting, nutritious sweetener is loaded with nature’s goodness, containing approximately 70 calories per tablespoon.

Easy to digest and rich in carbohydrates and the minerals calcium and phosphorus, Forever Bee Honey is a quick and nutritious energy source for any occasion!

  • Easily Digested
  • Rich in carbohydrates
  • Contains the minerals – Calcium & Phosphorus
  • Tinted, easy-pour container prevents loss of any valuable nutrients caused by sunlight
  • Tastes like real honey because it is real honey.

Why Switch to Forever Bee Honey

Making the switch to Forever Honey will ensure you that the Honey is actually real honey.

Many honey products you purchase from the supermarket shelves are not real honey but a carefully crafted liquid product made by big companies to resemble the real thing.

According to the FDA (as well as the food safety divisions of the World Health Organization and the European Commission), the one test that authenticates honey is the presence of pollen. If the liquid gold doesn’t contain pollen, it isn’t honey.

76% OF GROCERY STORE TESTED “HONEY” HAD NO POLLEN IN IT!

and this is because it’s likely to have come from China, and Chinese honey is cheap, diluted with high-fructose corn syrup and sweeteners, and tainted with crazy chemicals, heavy metals and antibiotics

Forever Living Honey –  offers you a remarkable line of 100% natural bee products. Our beehives are in an ideal location where the pristine environment eliminates contaminants such as pesticides and pollutants.

We use specialy designed equipment to gather and preserve the ingredients in the condition nature intended. All our bee products – Honey, Royal gelly, Bee pollen and Bee propolis – are natural and nutritionaly rich, from the hives directly to you.

just as the honeybees have been making them for thousands of years!

ONLY THE BEST

When Rex envisioned the dynamics of what was to become Forever Living and Aloe Vera of America, one of the fundamental aspects was the ability to provide the highest quality products on the planet.

Rex’s devotion to quality has never changed nor has it been compromised. It is exactly why we will accept nothing less than 100% control of our process from planting to finished product. You’ve heard it before, but at Forever Living, “Nothing less than the best will ever do.”

And that’s just the plain and natural truth.

Forever Living demands nothing less than the most exemplary quality at every step of every process to insure the quality of all our products.

We remain equally diligent in making sure that it arrives at our manufacturing facility in pristine form.

When it comes to manufacturing our final products, you can rest assured that every single one has been just as carefully nurtured into existence with the same level of care, diligent attention and exemplary standards that we put into to every one of our so carefully tended and harvested Aloe plants.

That’s the Forever Living way – that’s the Rex Maughan way.

The fake honey practises are not only in the United States, I live in Australia and ever since I found out what really goes on in the honey market I have started viewing the honey I was buying from the supermarkets very differently.

Upon inspection of the ingredients labels, even the honey products labelled with the Australian made I noticed that almost all honey products on the shelf were derived or made with imported product. “NOT VERY AUSTRALIAN”  if you ask me.

Some History on Teeth Cleaning

Before we get into the why of using a tooth-gel/toothpaste to clean our teeth lets reflect back on some history in the arena of tooth cleaning shall we.

I have done a bit of a search around and found a couple of interesting facts

  • Oral hygiene was a top priority in society as early as 5000 BC? The world’s oldest-known formula for toothpaste was created by Egyptians
  • They crushed rock salt, mint, dried iris flowers and pepper and mixed them together to create a cleaning powder
  • Although this concoction is known to create bleeding gums, research suggests it is the most effective compared to most toothpastes used as recently as a century ago.

So from most of my research and the few facts that are around it seems we have been obsessed with cleaning our teeth. So much so that our ancestors it would seem, were happy to brave the pain of bleeding gums from the harshness of the gritting tooth cleaning processes

From all the data available to me it seems the very first T.V commercial to air was for a toothpaste called Gibbs SR Toothpaste. The commercial air in Britain on television screens in 1955 and from information sourced was a success. We sure have come along way since the old black and white tube days of commercials.

Teeth Cleaning and Toothpastes Today

Today we have a huge selection of teeth cleaners from toothpastes to tooth-gels and they all tout their benefits to your mouth.

Everything from whitening to fresh breath for hours after we brush, which logically speaking would be difficult since the moment you have a coffee or smoke a cigarette that fresh breath is long gone.

There are some other problems I have found with most mainstream toothpastes these day as well like :

  • Gritty ones – you feel like your brushing with sand.
  • Sickly sweet ones – tastes like you brushed with Fairy Floss.
  • They burn the absolute crap out of your mouth and gums

I have also noticed over the years that there really is no substitute for quality. I have tried so many different brands and even purchased some claiming to have things like aloe vera in them only to read the ingredients to see that the aloe vera is virtually non-existent – it’s the last ingredient on the list meaning it has the least amount of that ingredient in it 

Forever Bright Tooth-gel

The selection of toothpates for your teeth are endless and every-one is different but after many years of trial and error I use and trust Forever Bright Tooth-gel from Forever Living Products.

There are a few qualities I look for in a toothpaste or tooth-gel. Quality is also important to me and to know it is safe and effective for the whole family to use is also on the top of my list.

With Forever Bright, I love the gentle minty flavour and smooth texture. I also found that with regular use my bleeding gums stopped and my cold/hot sensitivity was reduced.

The biggest thing that lots of people say to me who use the tooth-gel is they love how clean and smooth their teeth feel.

My family’s biggest love of the tooth-gel is it doesn’t burn the inside of their mouth.

That is why I never go past Forever Bright Aloe Vera tooth-gel. I have been using it for over 10 years now and I love it. It ticks all my boxes for what a quality tooth product should be and I love that fresh clean teeth feel.

Tube of Forever Bright Tooth-gel

Formulated for the entire family to use, Forever Bright contains only the highest quality ingredients. It is also suitable for vegetarians since it contains no animal by-products.

Natural peppermint and spearmint flavouring leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean. The combination of stabilized aloe vera gel and bee propolis soothes gums and mouth linings, and can be applied directly when brushing is too painful.

Fit Feels Good.

Feeling healthy is an important part of your life. Feeling fit and healthy go hand in hand and can sometimes be harder to achieve then one realises.

Now there are many levels of fitness from average to peak performance and our diet, exercise and commitment levels will vary depending on what end of the fit scale you’re on.

 

Now that is plainly obvious right, well it should be, however in reality it actually isn’t!

So why am I saying this? Well take a look around you and you will see where I am coming from. Let’s take 2 examples of the scale shall we!

 

Average Fitness Level

man sitting in chair near window working late
  • will consume up to 40% more calories than needed
  • will consume more processed/convenience food then recommended
  • will consume less water than recommended
  • spend less time doing healthy activity
  • does not recognise unhealthy weight gain
  • rarely understands fat to body mass ratio
  • Spends less time and money maintaining their fitness.
  • end up being overweight and unfit by age 50
  • are at higher risk of developing type 2 adult diabetes by age 35

Generalised statements taken from many information sources, but on the whole most people who are in the average fit range have not had to work hard to get there and take their fitness for granted.

Peak Fitness Level

man riding a bicycle - training
  • will only consume the calories their body needs
  • will consume less processed food and more raw foods
  • will consume slightly above the recommended water requirements
  • spend more time being physically active
  • recognises any unhealthy weight gain
  • understand their fat to body mass ratio
  • spend more money and time maintaining their fitness
  • generally look younger and are healthier by age 50
  • are in the low risk category of developing diabetes by 35

Being fit is and always has been a way for any of us to fend of health issues as we age. Staying fit is also linked with a lower risk of developing health complaints that are growing at an alarming rate in today’s fast paced heavily processed food driven society.

Now before you screw your nose up and walk away saying “I am not an Olympic sports person I don’t need this shit”, take a long deep breath and exhale your negative thoughts.

Now based on your current fitness level and your lifestyle today, picture yourself at age 50, 60, 70 or even 80, be honest don’t fool yourself, what health issues do you have now; even minor ones, they will get worse as you age if you don’t do something about your fitness level whilst you still can.

If you consume a high processed diet, drink alcohol excessively (even if it is only sometimes) and your physical activity is minimal, then you could be at a higher risk of developing health problems as each year goes by.

Things you can to Increase Fitness Levels

I don’t have the time – make time as not having enough time is a common excuse used to avoid just about everything. If you have time to sit on your but at the pub for some after work drinks, you have time to work on your fitness.

Replace the heavily processed foods – in your grocery cart. Processed food are carbohydrates and they register in your body as sugar. So a diet high in processed foods is also a diet high in the wrong kinds of sugars.

Steer Clear of Empty Calories –  Avoid buying foods that say low in sugar, low fat and diet, most of these products are heavily processed and full of empty calories. You will feel hungry faster after consuming these types of foods.

Choose High Protein or High Fibre Snacks – snacks that are high in protein or fibre and whole foods will do a better job of keeping you feeling more satisfied. Snacks like a handful of nuts and seeds or an apple or banana. Even a glass of full cream milk, cow, goat or even coconut are a better choice than a biscuit or muesli bar.

Drink Plenty of Water – Drink plenty of water at least 250 mls -1 cup first thing in the morning. Preferably filtered water if you can, but drink plenty of it. Between 2 – 3 litres a day depending on physical activity and weather but a minimum of 2 litres is your aim. Water is a natural cleanser and will help reduce body odour when consumed on a daily basis.

Choose to Stand – Stand-up when possible and make a conscious effort to tighten the muscles through-out your body, flexing each one a few time and move, this keeps the blood flowing and reduces the risk of pooling and clots forming.

By doing a few extra things that are good for you each and every day you will increase your fitness level over time. The more exercise you get is also very crucial to your fitness and health.

Avoid the trappings of society like convenient take-way foods like burger, fries, pizza and do-nuts. It’s not that you can’t have them at all just not in excess and on every other day of the week.

It goes without saying avoid consuming excessive amounts of alcohol ever as this is extremely dangerous for both your heart and liver. A small occasional glass of Red Wine is okay but remember not every day and no more then one small one just to be on the safe side.

Change your Life – Become Fit and Healthy

By changing a few simple things in your daily routine you will soon notice a difference in your energy levels and how good you feel.

Consider investing a little more time and money into your health and fitness, you will thank yourself as you get older.
