Month 1 -
To the Formula to Being Younger
I said that I would post my results and any information in regards to my earlier blog on with the formula "Do You Want to Feel and Look Younger" is doing to my skin and if I am feeling younger.
I am not noticing much energy change but my skin is flawless. I have had some skin issues have almost disappeared. I have added one thing in addition to the posted formula. I am now using vitamin E oil on my face and skin issue areas every night, especially around my eyes. Which I had fine lines starting and have been using very expensive creams to get rid of but am finding I might not need them. I have been taking faithfully the new vitamin formula that are listed in the "Do You Want to Feel and Look Younger" blog. I have seen that I do not need as much face creams. I have even less lines around my eyes and my skin is looking flawless. Any puffiness, dark spots, and even fine lines are diminishing. Therefore, I am noticing just in a little over four weeks results. I think by me eating healthy, getting exercise regularly, and now adding these extra vitamins I am looking younger in just a month. My hair and nails look healthier too. I haven’t noticed much on memory yet. We are hoping.
Why Vitamin E? Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage from occurring. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful antioxidants, but your body cannot produce it, which means you have to make sure you're getting enough of this valuable nutrient in your diet and on your skin.
I found it somewhat funny to put Pharmaceutical Grade of Vitamin E on my skin because it is just salad dressing to me. It is made up oils such as sunflower oil, corn oil, and olive oil, maybe a few more oils but these are what comes to mind. In addition, to putting this on my face everynight, I eat things that are high in Vitamin E as well, such as avocado, which is good for your skin on the outside. too. Just mash it and use it as a mask on your skin. However,I rather eat it and use the oil on my skin. Other high vitamin E foods are almonds,hazelnuts, peanuts, sweet potatoes, mango, apples, asparagus, turnips, spinach,and tomatoes. Wow! I found out that this Vitamin has many benefits. Look below
Thekey to getting enough vitamin E on your face and eating a balanced diet that includes a mixture of fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Check out the blog link with the formula to healthier skin and feeling younger. Blog Link
I love your feedback - Please let me know if this is working for you

Ladies Are You Are Seeking the following:
Here is a formula to being younger
I have been doing some serious research on how I can come up with a youthful formula that is affordable for everyone. I truly believe besides buying a great beauty cream (keeping moisturized which is a big key), buying just a multi vitamin, and besides using produce on your face (such as avocado, fresh cucumbers) to help with aging skin process that you need to start from the inside. Plus, I want something more than just a younger looking face. I want to look and feel younger, have better memory and I want my mind to be more alert too.
My main goal is to find supplements that are not sold by another MLM Company! I want to do it myself and buy it at a regular store, but cheaper,and help others do it as well. So that is why I am writing this blog.
I know I can make any formula myself if they can do it, then so can I. I can buy the ingredients, but the main thing is not only the cost, but also feeling healthy, but I want seeing the results on my face and mind. Yes, I want the best of both worlds. Just go back 15 years is all. For a fraction of the price that you would pay companies like Juvenon (Dr. Ames, who founded Juvenon even told people they could buy this cheaper at Wal-Mart) or maybe other companies beside Wal-Mart you might find these productsat a Online drug stores such as VitaCost.com even cheaper. I am not saying anything bad about Juvenon their product is good and has good reviews, but I need to be able to afford it and I know other women need this as well. I also look at shopping at large warehouse clubs, like Costco and Sam's Club.
I have been try these products for about two months and I will continue to try it, and post my results. I am all about eating healthy and that shows already on my skin and my over all heath and body. In addition, I use Jafra skin care products, which I find, are one of the best skin for the money. Yeah, a nice plug for Jafra. No, I do not sell it, but I do recommend it. I also, love going through places like Sephora when they have big sales on skin care products, or even going to the local CVS and buying regular products with coupons is my all time favorite or even Amazon.
Now that I am getting older, I need even more brainpower, so I am going to try to see if supplements will help. I figure it can't hurt. I will be using supplements that will not break the bank with purchasing a miracle pill or product from some MLM that cost me $1000 a year when I can take maybe 3 to 4 pills or less (because some of these I can find combined in your Multi Vitamin that I am already taking), this might cost cost me addtionally $300 a year and look and feel 15 years younger. If I was to go through a MLM it would cost me about $3,000 a year in addtion to want I am already doing.
I am already doing anti aging with food being on a Mediterranean Alkaline diet for over 16 year, which as kept me cancer free for that long. I believe, and many of my Dr believes when your Ph levels are balanced you are not as likely to have disease, and I believe that this diet has kept my cancer away. This diet has not only has helped me, but has helped several of my customers fight off cancer. I will post more about this diet later.
In addition, to my diet, I meditating regularly, and exercise regularly. Very important taking care of yourself and getting enough sleep is a must. Therefore, I will be adding this formula in my blog to my life now and will keep you posted on what's happening. I do not think you will see much improvement on the outside because my skin looks good already with my diet and skincare products that I use (Jafra and putting natural produce on my face). I do have some fine lines around my eyes that I will be watching. What do you expect for being in your fourties. I have skin problems in some area's that should clear up too and already have improved. I do not need much more skincare, but this is preventive care mainly. In addition, to the skincare I need the brainpower more.
Are You Are Seeking:
Here is My Formula:
A list of what you need to buy separately or combined
If you need any of those things listed then you might want to try this formula with a good multi vitamin:
I like taking probiatics occasionally too (to keep promoting healthy bacteria/microorganisms) Which help digestion andurinary problems. Yogurt have this in it naturally.
Okay, I am not guaranteeing this works. This is just what I have found from my research. So, if you would like to try it with me. Please answer my blog…

Please post your comments...
Is it working for you ????
I ask that you please do not post anything from a MLM company. I am not promoting selling of any MLM products. Just want to put addtional information out there to help people find affordable options. If you post I will delete your comments and account.
I do not have anything agains MLM companies. I use Isagenix and have used other MLM products. I think they are wonderful products, but have found that I can't (many of my friends can't) afford them. They will say that you only pay a couple dollars a day, but I can get it down to pennies a day.

Healthy Snacks for Everybody
These recipes are practically the Holy Grail of acceptable school snacks—suitable for the "allergy classrooms" at your child's school: no meat, no wheat, no dairy, no berries, no nuts. If only you'd found them sooner!
Safe Healthy Snacks
• Oatmeal Crisps recipe —Flourless, crunchy oatmeal cookies with a little bit of chocolate thrown in for good measure. If you are looking for a dairy-free cookie, you can omit the chips or seek out chocolate that has no milk solids and finely chop.
• Sunflower Seed Butter Cookies recipe —Perfect for kids (or anyone) who is allergic to peanut butter. Just check the label to be certain the sunflower seed butter wasn't processed in a plant that also processes peanuts. These are also gluten-free.
• Corn and Coconut Muffins recipe —Coconut takes the place of flour in the lightly sweetened muffins, while
buttermilk keeps them nice and tender. Angel flake coconut is what you'll typically find on the supermarket shelf-no need for a trip to the health food store. These will freeze successfully; wrap well and keep frozen up to 3 months.
• Snack Mix recipe — This savory take on a classic makes a great classroom snack. If you know your audience and that like things a little spicy, add a touch of chili powder or cayenne to the mix before baking.
• Fruit Power Bar recipe —The jury is out about oatmeal and gluten, although it seems that most people who are gluten-intolerant can handle oats. But if oats cause a problem these bars are for you. Quinoa flakes are gluten-free in addition to containing a fair amount of protein. Look for quinoa flakes in health food stores and some specialty shops.

Gluten Free Southern Spoon Carrot Cake
This is a recipe I revised from Betty Crocker. It is a healthy alternative to helping with a lower carb or gluten free diet. It is a very moist and high in fiber cake. If you try it please post comments on this recipe.

Southern Carrot Spoon Cake
This cake is so moist that you have to leave it in the pan and spoon it out. This is not the prettiest cake, but the best tasting. You can manage to get it out of the pan to decorate it if you put parchment paper on the bottom of the cake pan (grease the paper and the pan) before pouring in the cake batter. Alternatively,just pour the cake batter into ramekins and make a fancy dessert. However, my family just leaves the cake in the pan and decorates it. This is a great cake for potlucks or holiday gatherings.Enjoy

Paleo Pulled Pork Wraps
Paleo Zesty BBQ Sauce
Well it just so happens that I created a delicious Paleo barbecue sauce last week when I made some BBQ Pulled Pork for my Paleo Pulled Pork Wraps. I wanted to make BBQ Pulled Pork but I wanted it Paleo, so I researched a bunch, to make sure all ingredients would go along with the Paleo Diet. I ended up getting a nice lean range feed pork roast putting it in a Crockpot and pouring this sauce all over it and slow cooking for 8 hours. It was just delicious and my clients are asking for more. Hey, some of them don’t even know that it is good for them and made with healthy ingredients.
Zesty Barbecue Sauce
3 large cloves Garlic, minced
1 6oz can tomato paste (preferableorganic)
1 to 1 1/2 cups of beef stock (I made my own but if you buy, you want it without salt and No MSG - Organic is best)
1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh black pepper
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons hot sauce or ½ teaspoonof cayenne pepper
1. Blend in food processor garlic and onion until minced. You want your BBQsauce a little chunky but the more fine you dice these, the better the flavorwill spread through the entire sauce.
2. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Start with 1 cup beef stock and addmore depend on how thick you want your sauce.
3. Bring sauce to heat on stove with a low setting.
4. Cover and simmer. Stir frequently and taste regularly. The longer yousimmer, the more consistent your flavor will be. I simmered for 20-30 minutes.
Extra can be stored in refrigerator.

We are having a tamale making party this Friday!
It has been a while. By popular demand, my customers have asked me to make them again. It is time to make tamales again. They go fast so order now!
The Art of Cuisine is making Organic Low Fat Gourmet Tamales again this Friday. These parties are so much fun for my crew and I. We just have a blast doing them; they are a lot of work but well worth it. Most people are nervous to try my Healthy Organic Tamales. Until they try them, and I love the reaction. You do not notice these are healthy for you. They are very moist and melt in your mouth. They do not leave you feeling tired or that heavy feeling. They are even Heart Friendly. Now how many tamales can you say are that and taste good!
I am making more Gourmet Pork by popular demand. They are more traditional and so are my chicken tamales. I sold out of my Gourmet Pork tamales in just a few days last month. Therefore, I am making another batch of those traditional ones. I will be making Gourmet Chicken tamales and some not so traditional ones too. I will be making Lamb and my Vegetarian Italian Tamales that will become a new menu item if my clients like them. The lamb tamales are made for my Gluten Free Plado diet clients. The Italian Tamales are nothing Mexican about them. They are made with seasoned polenta, eggplant, zucchini, carrots, parmesan cheese, and lots of other veggies in a Italian tomato sauce. They will just surprise you how good they are. If you like, Italian food then you will love these. Even meat eaters love these veggie tamales. Plus, at Christmas time they make a great side dish. Hey, what a veggie dish all bundled up in one. You could get your daily servings of veggies in one of these tamales. I might make more gluten free tamales if enough people show interest in them. Email me and let me know if you are interested in more varieties of gluten free tamales and I will make another batch of different meats if enough people show interest.
One of the secret ingredients is Olive Oil.
These are all healthy made with olive oil instead of lard or shorting. Healthy for your heart and made with Organic meat and veggies. All of the Tamales have hidden veggies that most don't even notice but the veggies give flavor and vitamins. They came out the moistest tamales I have ever made and I think I have perfected the recipe. Try some and let me know what you think. I guarantee they are one of the best you have had. I have restaurants wanting these tamales and my recipe.
No, I am not giving this recipe out. If you want something close my The Art of Cuisine Cookbook (above link) has a Beef Tamale Recipe and a Low Fat Chicken that are crowd pleasers and close to what I am making. I have changed the recipe and perfected it more and made it even more healthy.
I will do pictures and post them my blog for all of you to see the fun tamale party. So, check back next week and I will have more pictures up.
Gourmet Tamales if anyone wants any they are $20.00/Dozen
Have a great weekend,

My brain just does not work anymore….
I had a client inspire me to write this blog. She sent me and email stating she went to email me three times and got side tracked. It seems I do this all the time lately and I am hearing the same from more women in my circle. I ask myself is it the added stress we put ourselves under every day? Is it more stress these days because of the economy? Yeah, right let's blame the economy. I am so sick of hearing that! Is it our environment? Is it the foods we eat and the microwaves we use eating our brain cells? Alternatively, is it the cellular waves in the air interfering with our brains? On the other hand, is it just we are getting old and our brain is not producing as it was.
I am not the only one trying to figure out how to get smarter or at least keep what little smarts you have. I have given up on us getting smarter. I am looking for ways to boost our brainpower and let me tell you it is big business. In addition to ever-popular alertness boosters like coffee and Red Bull, pills like Focus Factor and Brain Advantage are hot items, with customers shelling out $70 per month or more to stay on top of their mental games. Ginkgo biloba, an herbal supplement billed as a memory enhancer, generates nearly $1 billion in annual sales in the U.S. alone. Some folks go even further: as the prestigious journal Nature recently reported, 20 percent of scientists responding to a survey admitted to taking so-called cognition-enhancing drugs like the stimulants Ritalin (to aid focus) and Provigil (to stay alert without caffeine’s jitteriness), without apology. “It is my duty to use my resources to the greatest benefit of humanity,” said one respondent. One-third said they’d even feel pressure to give their own children these drugs if other kids in their circles were also using them. No, I will not resort to doing that to my children or even myself.
There is no way I am ready to pump myself with drugs in order to remember something more quickly, I did want to regain control of my mind, and, if I could,head off cognitive decline. The main question I ask now is could improving my diet help? I began scouring the science to find out. I also wondered whether the American diet I’ve been spoon-fed (and am currently spoon-feeding my children) was to blame for my mental malaise. I wanted to figure out whether a smart menu at each stage of life could fend off dullness and make me—and my family—sharper.
I am still researching and testing these diets, but here is what I found.DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid in the omega-3family that’s found in fish and their roe (particularly fattier types like salmon and sardines) is the magic nutrient du jour. I have seen literally hundreds of studies investigating its power to prevent cardiovascular disease.Now the focus has turned to the brain: dozens of studies report that mother animals deprived of DHA have offspring with memory, sensory and visual problems, and that supple menting them with DHA improves their performance on learning, memory, and problem-solving tasks. This makes intuitive sense: DHA forms the back bone of much of the brain cells’ membranes.
So, I found that test have been done when the mother eats omega-3 foods, the baby is in the womb and after birth, could have the same positive effect on human infants. Researchers collected umbilical cord blood from 109 newborns. They analyzed the DHA concentration in their cord blood (a good measure of how much DHA the mother consumed during her last few months of pregnancy), and then tested how well the infants performed on tests throughout their first year. They found that at 6 months and 11 months, infants whose cord blood had the highest concentrations of DHA performed better on a number of different tests—such as recognizing faces—than those with lower levels. “The mother’s intake during the third trimester, when the brain’s neurons and synapses are developing at a veryrapid rate, is most important. When we focused on that period, we found the most evidence of beneficial effects,” researchers say. I say "Wow, that is huge to any of my clients that are soon to be mommy's". I will pass this info on to everyone I know, just another good reason to write this blog.
So what does that tell me? Yes, we are what we eat, and we need to really analyze what we are feeding our children even before they are born and even the first stages of life. So, I want to get this information out there to my readers and let you know it is not too late. Try these few changes to your diet and let me know the out come.
Here is a list that I found on Eating Well’s website
Smart food for every age...
Are you getting enough of the right nutrients to support healthy cognitive function and improve memory? EatingWell’s quick guide to food solutions willshow you how.
1) Go fish.
Women who eat fatty fish,such as salmon, during their third trimester of pregnancy have babies who tendto perform better on cognitive tasks. Researchers think the omega-3 fatty acidDHA is needed during this time to build neurons and their connections. Can’t do fish then take an Omega-3 supplement or even buy Omega Eggs. The whole family can benifit from this.
Food solutions: Salmon and other fatty fish, DHA-fortified eggs and yogurt.
Add Iron. By 5 or 6 months,babies have used up the iron stores they’re born with and need to get iron fromfood or supplements to support brain development.
Food solutions: Iron-fortifiedcereals
Morning fuel. School-agedchildren should start their day with low-glycemic-index breakfast foods.
Food solutions: Bran cereals,oatmeal, or whole-wheat bagels.
4) Young Adult
Got iron? 10 percent of women areanemic and new studies show that being even mildly iron-deficient affectslearning, memory, and attention. Luckily, restoring iron levels to normal alsorestores cognitive function.
Food solutions: Dark leafy greens,beans, meat, or soy.
5) Older Adult
Eat your antioxidants. People who eat more brightly colored fruits and leafy vegetables have less cognitive decline than those who don’t; antioxidants in produce may mop up free radicals and protect neurons from damage.
Food solutions: Berries and other fruits, greens and turmeric (which contains curcumin).
So, what I have concluded from doing this blog is that I will be adding more Omega to my clients menus. I will now use Omega Eggs, and Add more Fish to my Menus. Plus, include a lot more Antioxidants on the menu too. This should help keep my family and my clients healthy. Which is my main goal.After all my family and I eat from the same menus as my clients.
Thank you for reading this blog. Please give me your input and if you know something that works, please share with my readers.
Healthy Happy Cooking,

The outbreak has spread to 26 states and affected at least 77 people The cases were reported between March 1 and August 1 Health officials have identified ground turkey as the likely culprit Symptoms are diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.
Todays August 3, news flash said it has now reached Oregon and has killed on person in California.
No production source has been identified for the outbreak, and no recall has been put into effect, but the CDC is working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and state officials to determine the source of the bacterium strain known as Salmonella Heidelberg.
The CDC says cultures of ground turkey samples purchased from four retail locations, which it did not identify, have yielded the strain of salmonella, which is resistant to many antibiotics.
Because of that, the risk of hospitalization caused by the tainted turkey is greater than for other salmonella outbreaks, CDC says.
At least 22 people have required hospitalization; 48% of those sickened have been female, and the bacterium has infected people from younger than a year old to age 88.
