How to keep fruit and vegtables from not turning brown and fresh

Meal prepping makes life so much easier. One of my daily snacks are fresh veggies sticks. However, no one likes a brown apple, or pear slice, in there snack pack. So I found a new way to meal prep my fruit, and vegetable snack packs to keep them fresh. This way you can save money, and keep your whole family healthy on the go. Plus it’s easy and quick. 

 Any fruit or vegtable that oxidized after being cut and exposed to air, I soak for 1 minute in 2 tbsp raw honey and 3 cups water. This works great for keeping your food looking fresh, until you eat it. It also cuts back on the acid taste, as if you had used lemon water. My apples, and pear slices taste like honey, instead of lemon. 

Last but most importantly, before sealing up my fruit,  and vegetable snack packs, I fold a paper towel and place it inside. The paper towel absorbs all moisture, and locks in freshness. I meal prep my snack packs on sunday, making one for everyday of the  week. The whole family gets their own too. They last fresh all week long plus a day. So next time you want any fruit, vegtable or herb to stay fresh and crisp, you can make it happen, just by doing this.

Can You Put Neosporin In Your Eye?

For the past few months, I have been to several doctors. I was concerned about the discomfort around my left eye, which was accompanied by headaches, sinus congestion, and post nasal drip. After taking plenty of antihistamines, antibiotics, steroids, sinus, and cold medicines, I was still in discomfort.  It constantly felt like my eye was congested, and the consistent post nasal drip gave me a chronic cough.  I decided to search the web for a home remedy solution, for what I was able to self diagnose as a sinus infection. 

During my search I found a solution of Neosporin Ointment  (NOT THE CREAM OR PAIN RELIEF NEOSPORIN IT MUST BE THE REGULAR OINTMENT ). 

Apparently it works for eye and ear infections. Most people message boards said to follow the instructions and don’t put it in your eye. However, many reviews said it worked for eye, sinus, and ear infections. I outweighed my options and decided to try it. I looked online to see how to apply it. Most people suggested using a q-tip, so that’s what I did. 

You put the Neosporin on the q-tip. Pull down your eye lid, and roll it under your eyelid. 

Then close your eyes and lay down. I applied it in my eyes before bed, because once in your eye you need it to melt and coat your eye.It’s hard to see with it in your eye.  In the mornings and at night I applied it my nose, and ears as well. I could feel the difference the first time I used it. It does not burn at all. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE OINTMENT NO CREAM OR PAIN RELIEF OINTMENT NEOSPORIN OR IT WILL BURN. 

My post nasal drip is finally stopping. I still use a nasal saline rinse 3 times a day as well and I’m almost cured. I tried Zyrtec, Claratin, Benadryl, and Flonase but none worked. The last doctor of 3 I went to suggested I try Allegra, and I’m finally getting full relief. But NEOSPORIN OINTMENT SAVED MY LIFE. I’M ALMOST GOOD AS NEW AFTER ALMOST A YEAR OF POST NASAL DRIP, AND SINUS INFECTION. I said if it worked I would right a blog about it. I would suggest this for kids and adults as a home remedy. I give it 5 stars. 

A Racing Mind

The whole point of living is trying new things.

Exploring the beauty in life by everything you achieve.

Boredom is not empty but full of death. 

Creativity is what puts you into life’s breath. 

Dreams of sweet happiness caress your brain. 

Fear and negativity will always be your pain. 

Truth hurts, but lies kill. 

The choice is yours on how you spend your thoughts. 

You are what you think.

You become what you eat.

Your addictions control your life. 

Love is always by your side. 

You were born alone.

Let your mind be your best friend and love you endlessly.

Once you kiss your heart, your smile will be contagious. 

Mango Iced Tea Off The Tree

So you have a tree in your yard? It’s bearing so much fruit what should you do? My fruit bearing tree is mango.

I decided to make mango iced tea today.  I took 3 mangoes, pealed them and liquefied them in the blender. Then I strained the pulp from the juice, and put the mango juice back in the blender.

image

I seeped my favorite iced tea bag  in 4 cups of boiling water. I added 1/2 lemon, and 1 cup of sugar, and seeped tea to the mango juice. Then I filled the blender with ice. I liquefied the mix, and placed it in the freezer to chill. The end result was mouth-watering mango iced tea. I will try this with other fruit as well.

OMEGA LOVE

Love is a word used on a daily basis. People tend to love as a present emotion. Rather than as an infinite silent state of mind. Love is not an action, it is a living presence. Love can be expressed through actions, but must not be replaced by them.
You see love has no space, or time. Love can grow beyond the Milky Way, or deminish smaller than a seed of mustard.
As we mature in life through wisdom of time, each human being is able to decide. Are you an alpha, or omega? Do you love, or are you love? Are you willing, or do you want to just survive?
Life is amazing despite its tragedies because of change. Another day to live, and more moments to learn how to love.
The world becomes more loving with the expansion of space  and time. Love is not for everyone, if there I no will there is no way.
Love is for those willing to except that life is love and accepting it means you embrace. For some people this is not easy and that is when those omega beings step in. I wrote this for my omega who cry in the wind. Our tears of joy,  and peace, evaporate in the still freedom of air. The sun, and the moon,feed our souls, as the stars, wipe our tears. No pain exists among us. No one else would understand, unless they can drink of  living water, which is embodied in all humans.
You see people come and go on our earth everyday. But not all stop to think we are the water of our water world. Our bodies are what we think. Love is water. We are water.  We are one love.

She said hello ma’am.
He’s said how are you today sir.
As I opened the bathroom door I did not get a stare.
I don’t question which way to go. My steps confirm the direction I am moving in.
You look confused.
I am confident.
The body I was created in tells you who I am.
I am her, and I am him.
There is only one life in me to live.
My acceptance is gained because it is created by honor.
I cannot judge or I would discriminate what I have within.
So when I walk by, don’t stare say high.
Appreciate the human I am.
I am the omnipotent Love that you deny within.
Tears are not my morning dew.
My sunset is always beautiful in its view.
You can try one more time to decide.
But I’ll tell you only once, I am
a humans body.

Love

The echoes of emotions are in my ears.
I’m so enamored by how the vibrations of love make me feel.
The concept of happiness has become my hedonist high.
I no longer imagine it’s existence, I have become the creator of love inside.
Every quake of my steps connect the earth’s magnetism to me.
The wind is blown by the pulse of my heartbeat.
I can feel the currents of rivers run through my veins.
My core is dependent on the life the earth creates.
Reality can’t conceive the love that I contain.
Logic is my sword, honor for life is my shield .
I slay down the enemy of love with every breath that I take.
Hatred is my adversary.
I fear not because I have all power since love generates in me.
My chakras connect to the universe so I am free.
Feel my presence, as the smile of my eyes trickles down your spleen.
Touch my heart as the dimple on my cheek, makes your heart skip a beat.
Not all can conceive the truth in love that flows through me.
All I need is one touch, and watch how one of my six senses will invoke love into thee.

The art of suggestion

The art of suggestion has knocked on my door.
I decided to open up because logic said, “let it in”.
Once inside suggestion began to show me who I am within.
There is no retreat where I now live.
Forward is the only way I can shed a veil of fear.
When I do stand still my glory will be in the presence of my true conscious.
Your life is based on your art of suggestion.
Im choosing to use all of my life’s canvas…..

Auto Suggestion and Self discipline

image

A new year usually begins with the start of a person setting new year resolutions to achive. Some people quit smoking, drinking, cursing, or loose weight. These resolutions people create become very hard to maintain without proper auto suggestion, and self discipline. Auto suggestion is the hypnotic, or subconcious acceptance of an idea, through repetitious actions using the five senses. Auto suggestion is what creates peoples perceptions.  Without healthy auto suggestion achieving healthy self discipline is impossible.  A persons senses in there conscious mind, either make it through their brain to their subconscious area to be stored, or they are rejected. Once you make your new year ressolutions you have to do a little work to reprogram your brain to achieve them. The seeds you plant in your senses will grow depending on how your mind sows them. Below is a list of houe to achieve self discipline, from healthy auto suggestion, for success.

1.  No negativity Only Positivity!
2.  Dont you give up! Dont quit!
3. Remove all temptations, out of site out of mind.
4. Eat regular healthy snacks, and meals daily.
5. Dont wait for it to feel right, it will feel wrong, awkward, and uncomfortable, only until you fully reprogram yourself.
6.  Schedule breaks, treats, and rewards for yourself for doing a good job.
7.  If things dont go as planned, forgive yourself, move forward,
and finish what you aim to accomplish.
