Yogurt and Sugar

 

This is a subject that I think most people are aware of but “sweet” wins. 

The stomach health loves pure unadulterated yogurt. Collect all of those natural bugs that our body needs to digest and absorb our food and keep our digestive  mechanism running efficiently.

Look I am a label reader, have been for years. I always read the ‘ ingredients ‘  on the outside of the packaging (no ingredient label I don’t buy). I don’t look at the calorie or food break down as there will always be a ‘sugar’ content number as there is natural sugars in most foods. Always read the content of the ‘Ingredients’. With almost 95% of the yogurt especially the flavored ones or ones with a fruit mix (which you can be sure will have sugar added) they will have sugar, corn syrup, fructose or some other sweetener in it. Try to stay clear of this. The sugars actually are harmful to the natural bacteria’s that are in yogurt so you won’t be getting the full benefit of eating yogurt.

The reason they put sweetness in the yogurt is it makes it more palatable especially to children and they sell more of the product as  “Healthy”. In most cases you may as well have desert.

What I do with natural unsweetened yogurt is I might add passionfruit from our vines or at this time of the year fresh Mango’s, strawberries. Basically I add any fruit that is in season “Fresh” .

If you are used to eating flavored yogurt, try weaning yourself on to the natural unsweetened ones. Its like breaking the habit of having sugar in your tea or coffee. Once you break the habit you find your tea or coffee undrinkable containing your teaspoon or more of sugar.

If you have a weight problem well then that is a good reason to look on the shelves for the natural product. I actually make my own yogurt as I have a yogurt maker. This way it is much more economical and I believe tastier.

If you are buying yogurt this is what you look for

Put Those Damn Phones Away When You are With Children.

This was an example of how easy it is to kidnap a child while in your care. Put those phones away and connect and play with your kids.

There is an explosion of Human Trafficking in this world and this is how easy it is to happen.

Put those phones away. We are responsible for our children who incidentally grow up too fast so enjoy and interact with them at all times when you are with them. It is Paramount.

PUT THOSE PHONES AWAY

 

This video next shows how easy for teenagers to be picked up. Scary. Teach your kids to check with you before entering someones vehicle. Always.

Remember Human Trafficking is rampant.

7 signs that you are going to be successful

I like this video – Why? The reason being I think it is a great introduction to life  for your children who are now of the age that are entering the work force or going off to study at University. I believe those who have talents often do not make the most of them and end up wondering after a few years “what happened” where did all that time go and I have achieved very little. There are reasons why some succeed and some do not and I believe this guy explains it very well. We often see these qualities in our own children and I believe we should be aware and nurture qualities no matter what the age.

Enjoy

  1. For a mere $11.99, you can find out if anyone has ever died in your home. Go to – Diedinhouse.com and it will reveal whether there has ever been any documented deaths at your address by giving you a full report that includes names, dates and causes of death. Also it will let you know if it has been home to meth labs, arson, or murders.

2. If you want to remember someones name – Associate their name with their job. When you first meet them ask them what is their occupation. It gives you something to associate their name with and a better chance of remembering it.

 

3. Orca’s brains have an enlarged limbic node, which deals with emotions and memories. Even taking into account the size difference of a human brain, an orca’s brain contains more of the spindle cells that process empathy and social patterns. This result could be evidence that Killer whales could be more empathetic than we humans. I guess if you meet one in the ocean one would like to think this is true.

 

Alex Stafie, 5, and Wallace Scherer, 92, make sack lunches for the homeless during an activity at Providence Mount St. Vincent home for older adults in West Seattle.

4. At the  Providence Mount St. Vincent in Seattle there is a pre school inside a nursing home.  “We wanted a living, vibrant community; to make sure that this was a place where people came to live, not die,” says Charlene Boyd, an administrator at the center. Bringing children in was a natural solution.

Socializing across generations has also been shown to increase the amount of smiling and conversation among older adults, according to one Japanese study from 2013.

These intergenerational interactions also enhance children’s social and personal development as many of the parents will attest. kids are prone to feel more comfortable around those with disabilities and impairments of all kinds than their peers who lack such experiences.

 

5. Tulips are not native to the Netherlands – Tulips had been cultivated in Turkish gardens for years and there were over a thousand types of tulips by the time Europe discovered the flower.  In the late 16th century tulips were brought to Europe by the Austrian ambassador to Turkey, then known as Constantinople.  From Austria tulips made their way to the Netherlands where the Dutch became leaders in producing prized specimens.

By the 1630’s tulip speculation, or tulipmania, was rampant throughout the Netherlands and both rich and poor were speculating in the tulip trade, similar to the stock market in modern times.  In 1637 the tulip market crashed leaving many Dutch penniless.

Despite the crash the Dutch continued to cultivate these colorful flowers and the Netherlands still remains the chief source for tulip bulbs.
