Amla Juice – A Powerhouse of Nutrients I believe

I have never heard of this Gooseberry from India before. I recieved this article the other day and found it very interesting. Have got an Indian shop around the corner so will check on them tomorrow to know more about it. This is what they look like

Here are some of the benefits:-

  • Treat cough and flu as well as mouth ulcers.
  • reduce  cholesterol levels
  • Helpful in managing diabetes better as well as respiratory ailments.
  • The alkaline nature of amla helps in clearing the system and strengthening the digestive system.
  • Supports liver function and flushes out toxins
  • Along with Vitamin C, amla is also rich in iron, calcium, phosphorous
  • Amino acids and protein present in amla help in hair growth, tackling hair fall and fortifying the root as well as the shaft,
  • Fight marks, pigmentation and blemishes

All sounds pretty good to me. To read the article in full go to NDTV Food

Camp Oven Cooking

This is a very Aussie thing to do when camping. I have been known to make a blackberry pie this way as well and then go the the nearest shop and get ice-cream. We kinda didn’t rough it.
Very Very yummy

Shop Smarter – Try These Apps

This is an article that I found in the AARP Magazine on money-saving apps written by Jean Chatzky. I thought it was excellent and have put them on my iPhone. Will let you know what I think of them when I give them a run. If you have used them let me know what you think.

1. RedLaser

Helps find better prices for a particular item that you are interested in.
Scan the bar code and the App shoots back prices from competing stores and online merchants. You can use the app to buy the item and some stores will have it waiting when you arrive.

2. Slice

Organizes online-shopping email such as order confirmations and shipping info

The app sorts through your in-boxes to gather and organize all your shopping related messages, including receipts for online purchases and vouchers from daily deal sites.
It allows you to track packages easily and also receipts.

3. Coupon Sherpa

To search and redeem coupons.
You can browse for online printable or mobile coupons by retailer or product type. Take printable coupons to the store or just show your phone to the cashier to get the savings.

4. Key Ring

Records loyalty cards

Scan your loyalty cards with your smart phone. when you pay for something at the store the cashier scans your smart phone screen to get your loyalty account information. You are able to sign up with this app as well.

5. Waze

Lowers Your gas pump bills b steering around traffic jams

Gives you an update on local traffic. If there is a backup ahead you get a voice alert suggesting another route. When you open this app while driving your vehicle information goes to a central database, based on GPS readings.
