Free yourself from forgetfulness !

Know you’re suppose to do something but can’t remember what?  Stand up!  Fretting and tensing up over what you are suppose to remember floods your brain with hormones that make you feel fuzzy and anxious.  If you change your physical position, like standing up and raising both arms and stretching, increases oxygen flow to your brain which burns off those hormones and that clears brain fog!  Help keep your mind clean and your brain strong with healthy drinks made in your Nutri-Bullet, like:

Staying Power

  • 50% Swiss chard
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 cup white beans
  • 1 tbs flax seeds
  • fill with water to the MAX line and extract and blend

Making healthy drinks in your Nutri-Bullet means you get the maximum  number of vitamins and nutrients in that food!

Recalling your grocery list

Always forget to get something at the grocery store?  Don’t feel like making or always lose your grocery list?  Try this fun strategy:  as you go down the list make a silly mental image of each one.  Scientists have discovered that we remember things better when we associate them with unusual thoughts – like a row of Mauna Loa Macadamia nuts doing the can-can,  or Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar cheese balls diving into a cup of Yogi Green Tea Super Antioxidant, or Annie’s Homegrown Organic Bunny Classic Crackers falling endlessly into a cloth bag of Graze Organic  Organic Reusable Snack Bags.  These mental pictures will stick to your mind, and a healthy snack is always good for you!

Never forget an appointment !

  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran

Worried about brain aging?

Read too many articles lately about Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, or do you know someone that has it?  Thinking you want to do all you can to prevent this terrible disease from affecting you and your family?  Stop worrying!  That’s easy to say, I know, but worrying does not help.  Eating healthy and exercising every day does help.  Go for a walk every day.  Do some bending and stretching while you watch TV, instead of just sitting there.  At least get up and walk around during the commercials.  Get a jar of  Indus Organic Turmeric Powder  and keep it on your kitchen counter to remind you to include it in every dish you can.  It’s really good in casseroles, potatoes, tomato dishes, eggs and a lot of dishes.  Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and reducing inflammation is essential for slowing brain aging and preventing the build-up of Alzheimer’s plaques.  There are many healthy herbs and oils.

Prevent bronchitis

This inflammation of the lungs’ air tubes, the bronchi, often follows a bad bout of a cold or flu.  Common symptoms are a hacking cough that lingers five or more days and chest pain.  See your doctor if your fever goes higher than 100 degrees F.

The best ways to avoid bronchitis:

  • Avoid the main trigger – tobacco smoke.  Folks who light up are ten times more likely to develop bronchitis than nonsmokers.  Even second-hand smoke irritates airways.
  • Wear a mask to protect your lungs when using any substance with strong fumes such as paints, paint remover and varnish.
  • Get a flu shot.  Many cases of bronchitis are complications of the flu.
  • Cough when you have to!  Coughing when you have a cold or the flu helps clear your lungs.  Suppressing one stops your body from expelling mucus which can then get trapped in your lungs and cause bronchitis.
  • Load up on oregano to kill germs!  Oregano contains antimicrobial compounds that fight bronchial infections as effectively as penicillin.  Sprinkle a heavy helping of McCormick Oregano Leaves on all your tomato based dishes, casseroles, meat and eggs.

All herbs like oregano, garlic and organic basil are good for you!

Help in stopping smoking

Eat Caesar salad, fruit salad, cole slaw and other healthy fresh foods!  New research in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research shows that smokers who eat the most fruits and vegetables are a good three times more likely to quit for good than those who consume the least.  The researchers theorize that the produce worsens the taste of cigarettes so you don’t enjoy them as much.  Keep handy healthy snacks like dried fruit to snack on instead of lighting up.  You can even stay indoors then!  Carry with you some cute containers like the stainless steel bpa free containers and pull out some colorful healthy dried fruit.

Keep hair color vibrant!

Think olive oil is just for cooking?  It’s a great instant hair conditioner, especially in cold weather.  Cold air opens hair cuticles, releasing color you paid big bucks to get!  To lock down cuticles rub hands together with a few drops of Kirkland Signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Run hands through hair about mid-shaft to ends.  Use a boar brush to evenly distribute the shine.  That touch of hydrating oil will intensify your color and be the extra protection you need in cold weather.  You can also use olive oil to strengthen your nails!  Make a DIY nail oil – in a small, clean bottle mix 1 tsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. castor oil and 1/4 tsp. lemon juice.  Shake the bottle then rub some into your cuticles before bed, wait a few minutes before wiping off any excess or put on gloves to sleep in.  This bottle will keep a long time on your nightstand.  If you do this every other night you will have stronger, healthier nails within a month.  Try Kirkland Signature Olive Oil !

Healing Heartburn

Heartburn is the classic GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) symptom.  It’s best described as a burning sensation in the chest and/or discomfort in the upper belly or abdomen accompanied by a feeling of fullness. GERD  and heart disease share this symptom, so always seek immediate medical attention for chest pain to rule out a possible heart condition. While few people start their day with a tall glass of extracted potato, these fluids can be very helpful in neutralizing stomach acids that cause GERD.  Make yourself a healthy drink in your Nutri-Bullet like:
Soothe Operator
  • 50% butter lettuce
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 cup papaya
  • fill with water to the MAX line – extract and blend

Blending and extracting your food in the Nutri-Bullet makes sure you get all the vitamins and nutrients, and it is easier to digest!
