The Many Benefits of the Aloe Vera Plant

The Many Benefits of the Aloe Vera Plant

Aloe vera plants tend to bring burns and sunburn to mind. In fact, you may likely think
about aloe vera gel in a bottle kept in a beach bag. If you do not think of the beach or
sunburns, you may think of aloe vera in lotions and in severe dry skin remedies. Though
aloe vera can be used for all of these issues, there are four other issues that aloe vera
can assist with.

Oral Hygiene Care

If you have canker sores or cold sores that come up from dentures or illness then you
know how painful they can be. You can use over the counter chemicals to help combat
or reduce the sores, but this may not always work and it may lead you to having to use
more of the chemical than you would like. This is especially true if you are having to use
more of the canker sore medicine as you develop a resistance to the gel or medicine.
Aloe vera gel can help with these sores in a natural and equally as effective way. You
can simply put the gel on your sores directly from the plant or you can choose to use a
food grade aloe vera gel or juice.

Wrinkle Reducer

You may not think of aloe vera as a wrinkle reducing agent, but it can help with fine
lines and wrinkles. You do need to use the aloe vera on a routine basis. You can use it
as a gel directly on your face following your normal face wash and toner routine. You
can also use it as part of a homemade face mask, peel off mask, or as stand alone
toner. The aloe can be applied directly from the plant to your skin. You will notice that
the gel from the plant is tightening your skin. You can notice immediate effects, but the
long-term effects from routine use are also significant.

Constipation Relief

Aloe vera juice can be purchased from local health and wellness stores. You can also
find it at most pharmacies. The reason this is important is because the juice made from
aloe vera plant can be mixed with water or other juice and ingested to help with
constipation relief. This is a natural way to reduce constipation pain and help clear the
system within a few hours.

Weight Loss

One way that many people are using aloe vera is to help with weight loss. Aloe vera
juice can help with weight loss by boosting the metabolism, clearing your digestive tract,
and flushing your system of toxins. The juice should be taken orally on a routine basis
for several days. You should also take a small break from the juice rather than using it
as a daily ongoing method. It does have the same effects as laxative so keep that in
mind.

Ideally, if you want to get all of the benefits from aloe vera, you should keep a plant and
juice on hand to use at any time you need it. You can grow the plant indoors and if you
buy the juice you can keep it on hand for several weeks.

Huckleberry Vinaigrette-

 

This is an DELICIOUS recipe!!! It is a 2-step process but is NOT hard at all so don’t be intimidated! For the vinegar, you can substitute any berry you like in place of the huckleberries!

First you need to make the Huckleberry Vinegar! This is what you need:

1 cup huckleberries
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups white wine vinegar

Place 1 cup huckleberries in a medium bowl; set aside.
In a medium stainless-steel, nonstick, or enamel saucepan combine vinegar and sugar. Bring just to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.
Pour vinegar mixture over berries in bowl. Cool slightly. Cover; let stand at least 8 hours. Makes 2 1/2 cups.

TO STORE:
Transfer vinegar to a clean 1-quart jar. Cover tightly with a nonmetallic lid (or cover with plastic wrap; tightly seal with metal lid). Store in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months. Stir before using.

THEN, you need to make the vinaigrette:

Baked Veggies

 

All you need is:  Oil, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, paprika, and either a couple fresh cloves of garlic (peeled and minced) or a couple tablespoons of minced garlic.

Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil and oil it with the oil. Chop up your veggies (I used cauliflower & broccoli – cutting it into larger-sized florets) and put them… into a bowl along with the garlic. Drizzle approximately 1/8 cup of olive oil (6 Tbsp) over top of them. Toss to coat. Now shake (to taste) the salt, pepper and about a 1/4 teaspoon of the paprika over them and toss again making sure to get them evenly coated.

Spread out on the oiled sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put veggies in to bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove and drizzle again with a little more oil, salt & pepper. If they need to be flipped, then flip them. Return to oven for another 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy-done. If desired, sprinkle with grated cheese of your choice. Enjoy!!

5 Effective Ways To Stay On Track With Weight Loss

Many people would love to lose 5 pounds, but there are those who need to lose, as much as 30, 50, or even 100 pounds. A journey like that is not short nor is it easy and often includes ups, downs, plateaus, and setbacks.

So how can it be accomplished? You’ve seen the stories of heroic triumphs plastered across the Internet, social media, talk shows, and infomercials, the ones with amazing headlines such as, “Amazing Mom With 5 Kids Finds Time to Hit the Gym” or “Spectacular 100 Pound Weight-loss With Common Sense Tactics.”

These are not miracles, these people  used sensible tactics to reach their goals.

1.) Treat Yourself as a Human
To err is human. The truth is willpower is not an endless supply of magic beans, you run out and at some point and fall off the wagon. You will find a stressful situation you can’t seem to manage. You may binge while you are all by yourself or in front of everybody at a celebration.

The key is to forgive yourself. Know that it happens to everybody and one bad day doesn’t mean you are failing or that you have worked for all this time for no reason. A cheat day or wavering in your willpower means you are human. Be prepared and expect it, they key is to move on and get back on track immediately.

2.) Set Manageable Goals
A 50 or 100 pound loss while impressive is not by any means unattainable, but reaching goals renews your motivation. If you want to keep your weight loss on track, break it down into bite-sized nuggets.

Plan to lose about 5 to 10 pounds a month (as about a one to two pound loss each week is considered healthy and sustainable weight loss). Anything more than that, is a celebration. Anything less is still a victory. The important part is you are setting manageable goals with healthy ideas about what your body is most likely capable of supporting.

3.) Find A Buddy
Weight loss in particular is easier when you decide not to go it alone. A workout buddy is a big help. You can diet at home with your spouse, join a weight loss app or program, and hire a Registered Dietitian or a physical trainer. The bigger your support group the more people’s energy you have to draw on and the more consistently you feed off that energy and comradery the better off you will be.

4.) Break the Plateaus
Wow, you are doing the work and it is really paying off you have lost 10, 15, even 25 pounds. You keep things going, but you can’t seem to shake anymore. It all stops working, the diet, the cardio, the strength training seems to stop being of any value. Your journey has plateaued and you find yourself a little bit hopeless all over again.

Power through a plateau by getting out of your rut. Often in weight loss, we find ourselves in routines for workout and food. Changing your routine by taking an extra or different workout class, adding strength session to your week or adjust your protein ratio. Shocking your system is one of the most effective ways to work through a plateau.

5.) Make Your Biggest Changes Small Ones
The best ways to make your weight loss stick involve small sustainable changes you don’t really notice. Flavored waters instead of soda during the day and with meals, smaller plates when you eat, skipping dessert, or eating a little fruit instead of cake are all small sustainable changes to keep your weight loss on track. Most important, these profound habit changes ensure long-term weight loss success.

The best changes, the ones that make the most difference are the ones you can stick to for longer than the 6-12 weeks of your weight loss plan.

Are Vegetarians Healthier Than Meat Eaters?

Who is the healthiest of them all? This age-old debate has preoccupied researchers, physicians, politicians, and everyday citizens. People in the Western world seem to be obsessed with their health. All kinds of diets flood the media, and countless health magazines line the store shelves. In particular, there has been a lot of controversy about whether a vegetarian diet is healthier than a non-vegetarian diet.

Vegetarians, and many researchers, have long insisted that a non-meat diet helps reduce the risk of certain diseases and makes it easier to lose weight, while meat eaters insist that vegetarians do not get enough protein.

Research from the Austrian Health Interview Survey even suggests that vegetarians are less prone to develop allergies, anxiety disorders and have a 50% lower risk of cancer and heart attacks.

So, what is fact and what is fiction?

The Truth About Vegetarians Vs. Meat Eaters

Studies show that vegetarians have a lower body mass index than meat eaters. Meaning that they tend to weigh less, and have a lower risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and incidence of cancer.

In regards to the claim that vegetarians do not get enough protein, this is only a myth. There are plenty of foods that are high in protein, including, nuts, beans, legumes, whole grains, tofu, even fruits and vegetables. The majority of vegetarians have no issue getting enough protein. However, they do sometimes have an issue with getting enough B12, so vegetarians are often encouraged to take a vitamin B12 supplement.

Regarding meat, some studies show that meat eaters have a higher risk of heart disease, obesity, and other diseases, while other studies say that vegetarians actually have a higher risk of heart disease, cancer, depression, anxiety, and other disorders.

The reasons for these discrepancies are relatively straightforward:

1) Many people who choose a vegetarian diet are more health-conscious in general and thus make other healthy lifestyle choices (e.g., not smoking, not drinking heavily).
2) Many people who become vegetarian choose so because of existing, ongoing health problems that they want to improve (e.g., diabetes, allergies, anxiety). Thus, vegetarians may seem healthier in general because of other healthy lifestyle habits, or on the flip side, they might have disorders and problems that meat eaters do not have because they developed these conditions and then became vegetarian to try to reduce these problems. Studies that do not control for these factors may present incorrect information.
In truth, a vegetarian is not necessarily healthier than a meat eater is. It all comes down to individual choices. A vegetarian who consumes a lot of sodium, sugars, refined grains, and saturated fats is not healthier than a meat eater who consumes a lot of fruits and vegetables.

Choosing A Lifestyle

There are many reasons that people choose to eat a meatless diet, some are ethical in nature, others are for religious reasons, some people simply cannot tolerate eating anything that once lived and breathed, and others just feel that it is a healthy choice. Conversely, many love steaks and chicken, so for them, choosing this type of lifestyle can prove difficult, unless there is compelling motivation to quit eating meat. Keep in mind that a diet that includes meat can be healthy.

The Healthiest Foods To Incorporate Into Your Diet

A reason that studies show a higher risk of heart disease, obesity, and other problems in meat eaters is due to saturated and trans fat. Meats, especially red meats, are high in saturated fat.

For the healthiest diet possible, focus on a menu that is rich with the following items:
1. Vegetables

2. Fruits
3. Whole Grains
4. Legumes
5. Nuts
6. Plant-based Oils
7. Seeds

Regardless of being a vegetarian or meat eater, the foods that you consume on a regular basis dictate how healthy you will be.

Focus on the seven foods above to reduce your risk of heart attack, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and other diseases. Monitor the amount of saturated fats that you consume, and if you are a meat eater, consider swapping your steak for grilled chicken or fish on a frequent basis. With the right diet and lifestyle choices, meat eaters are just as healthy as vegetarians are!
