Fillers and Sugars Matter In Your Beverages
When looking for almond milk, it is often IMPOSSIBLE to find a healthy brand without all the unnecessary fillers and sugars. As consumers, we often forget that in order for a liquid to have a shelf life, there has to be some sort of additive(s) in it. Food manufacture's aren't dummies either, and study after study has proven that humans are addicted to sugar, so they know the more sugar they put in their products, the more people will consume them.
I can’t believe it took me 28 years to feel FABULOUS! I can’t believe that I lived with a constant stomach ache my whole life. I can’t believe that I thought all the expensive beauty products in the world would make me beautiful. I can’t believe I thought all the retail therapy would help ease my stress.

The truth is that understanding your health is quite simple. The food you put in your body will make up your cells, blood, skin, hair, and soul.

If you aren’t giving your body nutrition, what do you think will happen to your cells when they start to divide? Will they divide and replicate into more healthy cells, or will the divide and start to build cancer cells and other metabolic diseases? We all have cancer and bad cells in our body, and only YOU have the power to fight them off by giving your body proper nutrition.

I've come to the hard realization that no matter how hard you try, you can NOT out train a bad diet. I was talking with my Postman this week (who I love dearly) and asked him how many miles he walked a day. I was shocked when he said his route was 6-7 miles.

I quickly reminded myself that it is just another example that we can truly never out run a bad diet.Read More
