growing an organic vegetable garden

You should make sure organic fertilizer is mixed into your soil at least three weeks prior to planting any organic seeds. As mentioned, the organic fertilization process takes a little more time, but is well worth the effort. You must be sure all chunks of the organic fertilizer are properly broken down and blended 100% into the soil. One of the easiest ways to control garden pests is to use the method commonly referred to as “companion planting.” There are certain plants that act as a natural insect repellent. By planting these plants with your other plants, you'll keep the insects away. Examples of such plants include the following: garlic, onions, and marigolds. You can either plant them next to your other plants, or plant them in a perimeter around your organic garden, to act as a natural barrier. You could also do both of these; to ensure maximum effectiveness for organic pest control.

Paleo Recipes Work Great


The Paleo Diet and similarly, the Paleo Recipes you're about to discover work by two fundamental principles: 1. Put maximum nutrition INTO your body... and... 2. Reduce or eliminate toxins and "interference". The first one is obvious. Natural foods from the plant and animal world especially when organic and untouched by the horrors of modern food production and manufacturing are loaded with essential nutrition. The second principle is just as fundamental, but less apparent. It means that when we avoid toxins hidden packaged/processed food... and the many hidden toxins in commercial meat, fruits and vegetables... Our bodies begin to clean out and detoxify. This allows our cells to expend less energy in actually fighting off foreign substances and more on rebuilding, growth and rejuvenation. Yes, the recipes in this book are universally healthy and whether you’re a stay-at-home Mom, an elite athlete or a busy exectutive. Remember: when you consume foods we as humans have evolved to eat and you cut out the “modern” foods that don’t mix with our genes and DNA... You trigger a wave of rejuvenation throughout your body one that’s visible on your midsection, your muscle tone, skin, hair, face and much more. This is just one reason why so many people from all walks of life are turning to the Paleo diet because it produces results without the oppressive, tasteless foods and portion or calorie control you find on most diets. Paleo Recipes!

There are two reasons that they will help smokers

Free radicals are increased when you smoke. They can lead to age related maladies like heart disease  and cancer. Free radicals are bad but are fought off with antioxidants. mane come from our bodies but  can be increased by eating fruits and vegetables. Smokers need to make sure they get vitamin C and  vitamin E. They need to get beta carotene which is in yellow fruits, carrots and squash. If you smoke  you need to make sure you eat raw vegetables and different kinds of produce. Research has shown that  people that do this lower their risk of lung type problems.  Tobacco smoke lessens valuable nutrients from the body so you need to eat more fruits and vegetables.  Smoking one cigarette destroyers the vitamin C you have in your system. Soy foods are great for your  body even if you don't smoke. Broccoli, cauliflower contain compounds called genistein, and protease  inhibitors. Strawberries, grapes, and cherries are fruits that contain ellagic acid has been shown to  destroy hydrocarbons potentially cancer causing chemicals in cigarette smoke. It has been shown that  tomatoes have a substance called lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant which has shown to be more  powerful then other green vegetables.

You might see some redness around the incision this is normal

 When you have surgery you need to make sure the area of the incision is kept from getting a infection. Here are some ideas on post surgery care.   The first thing you need to do is keep an eye on the incision area. Usually there will be some slight bleeding in the area. When I had my gall blatter removed the incisions seeped for about a week after the surgery. You need to replace the bandages as needed when they absorb the fluids. Your doctor will have you apply an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.
You might see some redness around the incision this is normal. If the area becomes swollen and very red or painful contact your doctor. You should keep the area dry for 24 hours to prevent water getting into the stitches which might cause an infection. You can take a sponge bath instead of a shower to help keep the area dry. It is better to wear clothing that is loose fitting and white in color. Clothing dyes can cause infections if the dye gets into the incision. This is especially true if you have had foot surgery. You should wear white socks not colored ones.  Depending on the type of surgery you should restrict activities such as lifting, straining,or sports. If the area is bothering you make sure to apply ice but make sure to keep the area dry. This will help with any swelling but if the pain continues consult with your doctor. If your doctor prescribes pain medication make sure you do not drive and you should not take it with alcohol.

The most nutritious form of rice is brown rice

The problem with white rice that the outer layers are stripped during processing. This leave behind a  tender grain but less healthful grain. Some manufactures will add nutrients but this could be more or  less then nature intended. brown rice is darker and more chewy then light colored rices. The fiber in  brown rice is the insoluble kind that soaks up large amounts of water in the intestines. This will  help you pass waist more easily and keep your colon clean.
This type of rice needs to be kept cool. It turns rancid quickly if it get warm so you need to store
it in a cool place. You can store it in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a year. Both
brown and white rice leach nutrients into the water when cooking so save the water. Let it cook until  all the water is absorbed. You should put the rice directly into the water when cooking as long as it  is the domestic rice. When you are cooking rice try not to stir it as this will damage the grains. This will make the rice soft and gummy. You can try chicken and beef broths which are great cooking  liquids. You can also try some herbs or a squeeze of lemon. When it is done the grains will separate  easily without being dry or wet. Let it stand fifteen or twenty minutes after cooking to reduce clumping.

Quinoa is loaded with protein and contains all nine amino acids

 You can add it to many different meals and food. It is soft and can be added to soups, pasta dishes, and stuffing. It does spoil quickly so you need to fix it as soon as you can. You should buy it in small quantities and store it in a refrigerator or cool dry place. It is delicate and not like other grains like rice and wheat. You need to make sure you wash it good before preparing it in a food dish. Quinoa cooks fast and can become mushy if you cook it too long. You should not cook it in boiling water for more then ten to fifteen minutes. It also plumps up a lot so a little amount goes a long way.
