Food Reviews - New Things to Try Out!

Hi Everyone!

Here is another list of healthy living products, I have been trying out for you!

As always, in order to be featured here, a product has to fit under the following categories:
1. Indicate that it is considered a healthy choice on the package, or
2. Is a whole-grain product, or
3. Is organic, or
4. Is a green household product

Let's begin!

1. Quaker Multigrain Minis - Cinnamon Sugar
5 Stars! Wonderfully sweet little treats, that are made with whole grain, and have only 60 Calories per serving! What is not to like!

2. Activia Yogurth from Dannon
5 Stars! Great tasting yogurth, and good for you! It makes getting a shot of calcium a pleasure!

3. Oat Cluster Cheerios Crunch from General Mills
5 Stars! I love the high iron content. It takes great - okay, it taste like sweet cheerios, what did you expect? With 100 Calories per serving it is a great way to get your vitamins, fiber and the iron many of us our lacking in our diet.

4. Seventh Generation, Natural All Purpose Cleaner.
5 Stars! With no perfumes and dyes, do not expect the usual scents or smells of a cleaner - which I find such a refreshing change - but it works as well as any of the products I used to use, and which fumes I inhaled. So, do yourself, the enviroment and your family a favor and switch to Seventh Generation.

Have a wonderful day!

Inspiration To Take Action

"Hawk doesn't think during hunt
It does not care for theory or ethics
All that it does is natural."
Tao Te Ching

Are you inspired to take action?
There is no doubt in the action of animals, while we second guess everything we are doing.
While I do not suggest to stop rational thinking, I am suggesting for you to take the inspired actions you have been brought in contact with. You have been thinking about joining this club? Then do it.
Do you feel now is the right time to ask for a raise? Then go see your boss, and ask for one!

While some inspired actions might not bee the conventional ones, the thought of standing still, of not going ahead in your life, should be harder to take then the chance of making a mistake and learning from it.
Motion, any kind of motion will always bring you to a better place then you currently are.

So, take up that hobby you always wanted, join the gym you passed by tens of times, read that book that is not conventional thinking.

Step out of your box, you have nothing to loose.

Have a wonderful day!

Starting Your Day!

Hi Everyone!

Here is a quote from Louise Hay's book "You can Heal Your Life"

"How do you begin your day?

What is the first thing you say in the morning when you wake up? We all have something we say almost every day. Is it positive or negative? I can remember when I used to awaken in the morning and say with a groan, "Oh God, another day." And that is exactly the sort of day I would have, one thing after another going wrong. Now when I awaken and before I even open my eyes, I thank the bed for a good night's sleep. After all, we have spend the whole night together in comfort. Then with my eyes still closed, I spend about ten minutes just being thankful for all the good in my life."

How do you begin each day? Are you inclined to looking forward to another day filled with bliss, or are you already focusing on where you are hurt, or how you are dreading to go into the kitchen, because you are on another one of those diets?

Please begin your day from now on, with a more gentle approach. This kindness you are showing toward yourself and toward your surroundings will carry throughout your day, and enhance your experiences more then you might imagine at the moment.

Have a wonderful day!

Harmonious Living

Hi Everyone!

"If you wish harmonious conditions in your life, you must develop a harmonious mental attitude."
Charles Haanes - The Master Key System

As we all are looking for that harmony, balance and comfort in our lives, the key to where this harmony is to be found is not in the food, or the addictions or the temporary distractions. The power we have to turn our lives into that which we want it to be, and yes, that includes the subject of weight loss, and health, is within.

Sounds like that new age thinking to you?

The book this thinking is primarily inspired from has been written 1916, and is one of the inspirations for the making of "The Secret."
So much for new age thinking.

But does it really work? Is what the teachers of Law of Attraction and numerous other writers like Eckhart Tolle have been writing about, really something that works?

If you consider how many times, many of us have spent hundreds of dollars upon the quick fixes, that everyone else promised us, that they would work, I think the purchase of a book for under 20 Dollars, or even better, the reading of a book that is available free, as a public domain on the Internet, is worth considering even if only for a moment.

What do you have to loose, but a few moments of your time?

Think about it!
