If you know anything about me, you know I am OBSESSED with Coconut. Coconut snacks, milk, water, oil, candles, lotion, coffee creamer....safe to say, I love anything Cococnut! I carry my coconut oil in my purse and use it for EVERYTHING! I cook with it, eat a teaspoon a day, use it as my lotion, lip gloss, face lotion, put it in my shakes, and recently Ive been Oil Pulling with coconut oil. It has done amazing things for my skin, teeth, headaches, and even cured my strep throat the 1st day! It is also a natural DETOX for your body....so skip the crazy "juice no eating" detox thingys, all you need is coconut oil! Coconut Oil can help in the early stages of Alzhiemers, it is a natural source of energy, aids in weight loss, there are thousands of health benefits. It is importatnt to get the UNREFINED oil though, if it is refined it goes through a process that takes all the good stuff out of it. Read on to see what Oil Pulling is and how you do it!!.......
How Coconut Oil Pulling a day keeps the doctor away.........
(yes I take mine EVERYWHERE!)
The process attracts and removes bacteria, toxins, and parasites that live in your mouth or lymph system, and also pulls congestion and mucus from your throat and loosens up your sinuses, which is amazing! With the help of your saliva, all these scary undesirables bind with the oil, ready to be disposed of. Pulling also helps re-mineralize your teeth and strengthen your gums by thoroughly cleansing the area. This sounds good, right? But how exactly do you do it?
I am IN LOVE WITH THIS LADY!!!! This Dancing Nana has become a viral video and after you watch it, you will know why! 80 some year old lady dancing, moving, having fun....thats LIVING!!!

Ahhh, it finally feels like summer is here to stay! It's been a long winter for everyone.
Time for the pool and beach.......but wait........are you ready for the pool and bikini or do you need to turbo charge your weight loss and get ready for the little polka dot bikini??
Well good news, you can turbo charge your weight loss by adding 2 little things to your salad!!
Spinach and Walnuts!!
The lipoic acid in spinach prompts cells to burn fat for fuel so efficiently that eating just three cups a week can trim away 5% of your weight in six months. When you combine spinach with walnuts' plant fats triples absorption of slimming lipoic acid.
These findings came from a study at Ohio State University.
WHAT NO WA WA?!!!

I'm not a poet, and I know it .....
But this is for you
Single Moms on Mother's Day and everyday......
Your days are so long
but perseverance so strong
To stay strong you keep you eye on the prize
For the babies you sacrifice
You have the worry of the scurry
Getting them all from a to b can be a flurry
At times you find you have more mouths to feed than there is food in the house
And for them, you eat like a mouse
Sometimes bills go unpaid to make sure your kids have the supplies to make the grade.
You will do all you can do
For the gift that's been given to you.
You are a single mother
Going through the single struggle
Of raising you children alone
You are both mama and daddy in your home.
You are in and out of court
Trying to get some type of support
But the daddy can’t seem to keep a job
He doesn’t care if his children eat or starve
So, you do the best you can
Trying to raise boys into men.
At night you find yourself asking, “Why?”
And then sometimes you just have to cry.
If I can share a secret
that has gotten me through
And will do the same for you......
You do your best and God will do the rest!
He is the father to the fatherless.
They may go with less
But the love is endless!
He gives rest to the weary.
Rest single mom.....it may feel your in this alone, but trust, that you are not ever alone.
The reward for all single moms is in your child's smile and kiss at the end of a long hard day!
That's the fuel that takes you into the next day!
And so to you, I wish you all
Rest before tomorrow's endless call
Happy Mother's Day!
