Are You Getting Enough Fiber?

OmniGreen Labs Dietary Fiber.Sometimes it is hard to get enough fiber in your diet. Especially when you are not eating at set meal times. I have had that problem lately.

If you are grabbing whatever you can get from fast food places or convenience stores, then you may not be getting enough fiber.

Even if you are eating regular meals at home it isn’t always easy to get enough fiber.

Without fiber your digestive system doesn’t work nearly as well as it should, and if that goes on long enough you can end up with some serious problems. Lack of fiber is one of the contributing causes of colon cancer. So it is an important part of a good diet.

Adding fiber to your diet is easy with this Fiber Powder from OmniGreen Labs. It even comes with a little scoop so you can easily get the right dosage.

Each serving has 4 grams of Fiber. If you are not used to having fiber in your diet you should probably start off with a small dose and work your way up to the full recommended dosage of two servings a day.

This powder completely dissolves in a glass of water.

Water with a dose of OmniGreen Labs Fiber Powder in it.It has no taste that I can detect and it doesn’t thicken the water. You can add the fiber to any drink you want to put it in. Or add it to your food. Take it however you want to.

This product has no preservatives, chemicals, artificial colors, or flavors in it. It is made in an FDA approved c-GMP Certified Facility.

The package is not fancy, just a fairly plain white jar.

The fiber has helped my digestive system.  I have had a problem with regularity the last few months and that has gotten much better since I started adding the fiber to my diet.  It should continue to improve as my system gets used to the addition.

I like this fiber. It is easy to use.

Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil Review

Picture of a bottle of Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil.Essential Oils are wonderful. Lavender Essential Oil is my favorite. The scent is relaxing, and the oil is used in massage and aromatherapy.

You can put some on your dryer balls, or on a rag, to make your laundry smell wonderful. It is especially nice to use when drying your sheets and pillow cases, because Lavender can help you relax and fall asleep easier.

Putting a drop on a cotton ball and stuffing that in your pillow case can help the scent last longer too.

You can use this oil in your bath too. It is supposed to help with skin problems such as eczema and acne, as well as aching muscles.

The oil can be used in diffusers or oil burners for aroma therapy. It is great in foot soaks too.

This Bulgarian Essential Oil from First Botany Cosmeceuticals is a large 4 oz bottle and it comes with a glass dropper. That makes it really easy to use.

I like the scent of this oil, it smells pretty much like the other Lavender Oil I have used, but I don’t have a clue how to tell if it is as natural and pure as the label says it is. I have used it on my dryer balls and the laundry does smell nice afterward.

I really like the dropper that came with it, and I’m gonna keep that even after this oil is gone.

Take A Deep Breath

Now take another deep breath. Do you know how wonderful it is to be able to do that?

Breathing is amazing. Most of the time it happens without you even paying attention. You don’t have to think about it. You can just go diddy bopping along, and not worry about it at all.

And you don’t worry about it. Or even think about it. Till you can’t do it. Then it becomes the most important thing in your world, and it is really hard to pay attention to other things.

Most of the time I’m fine, and only have a problem if I try to walk too fast or something.

The last few days though with all this rain, the humidity is high, and that seems to make it worse. Just breathing is work. Doing anything else doesn’t seem worth it.

Right now I’m on Advair which helps a lot. So long as the insurance covers it. If the insurance stops covering it like they did the Dulera that I was taking before, then I’m pretty much screwed.

Anyone without insurance or a lot of money is in that situation, because all of those medicines seem to be hugely expensive.

So just take the time to stop and breath every now and then. Maybe smell some flowers, or coffee, and just appreciate how blessed you are.

Be Sure To Clean Between Your Teeth

Our Dentist has a sign in his office that says “You don’t need to floss all your teeth, just the ones you want to keep“.

I can tell you from experience that it is true. Most of the cavities I have had were between my teeth. Because I never did like to floss, and it is so easy to forget.

Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser.The Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser from Gurin has a made a difference. This thing is fun to use.

It has three different modes: Normal, Soft, and Pulse.

Normal is too strong for me, and I recommend you set it to soft the first time you use it. I didn’t even think about that before I turned it on the first time and it actually hurt a little bit. I have sensitive teeth so most of you guys might be fine with the strong. I mostly use the soft setting.

Rechargeable water flosser.

I also made a mess. I ended up with water all over the counters.

After that it was actually fun. Much better than regular floss, and it does get the bits and pieces out from in between your teeth too. And gives your gums a bit of a massage.

There is a big water tank on it that is easy to fill, and it is rechargeable. It comes with the recharging cord, so when necessary just plug it in for a while.

It comes with two nozzles so more than one person can use it. The instructions say to replace the nozzles every 6 months.

I like using this flosser and expect my dentist to be happier with me the next time I see him.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil Can Help Clear A Stuffy Nose

Bottle of eucalyptus oil from Up Nature.Put a couple of drops of this Eucalyptus Essential Oil from Up Nature in a pot of boiling water, and inhale the steam. Your stuffy nose will start to clear up pretty quick.

It may take a bit longer if it is really bad. You can put the oil in a diffuser too, and it will help a bit, but not as much as the steam.

It can help some if you put a bit on cloth and sniff it too. Or put some on a cloth under your pillow case at night, to help keep your nose clear while you sleep.

The smell is wonderful too. It can help lift your mood.

Diluted oil can be applied directly to the skin, and is often used in soaps and lotions.

It is supposed to be very helpful in repelling ticks if mixed with lemon extract. I’m gonna try that come spring. We are overrun with ticks here in NE Arkansas. If that keeps even a few of them off it will be worth it.

Eucalyptus oil also has some antiseptic properties and makes a good mouthwash.

According to WebMD more research is needed to find out just how useful it can be for things like Arthritis, Asthma, and headaches.

Just be very careful not to use it undiluted on your skin or by mouth.

It does work great for stuffy noses. I have been using it for that the past week. And it makes the house smell good.  Mixing it with peppermint oil really helps.

I like this oil.

Wrists Hurting After Using The Keyboard?

Keyboard Pad and Mouse Pad.A Keyboard Pad and a Mouse Pad can help keep your wrists from hurting if you are on the computer a lot. This one from CushionCare is really nice.

I have been using these for almost a month now. I love them both.

They have a no skid back on them so they don’t slide around.

The cushion holds your wrist up where it should be, so my hands don’t get as tired as they used to, and my wrists don’t hurt as much.

They can still hurt some especially if I am on the computer playing a game for hours. If I’m just typing a post or scrolling on social sites for a bit my wrists don’t hurt at all now.

These look nice too.

The keyboard pad and mouse pad on my desk.The wrist rest attached to the mouse pad is a great idea. If you move your mouse pad the wrist pad goes with it.

The last one I tried was separate and kept falling off the desk. This one will not fall off, unless the whole thing comes down, which has not happened yet.

I like this set of wrist pads. They work.

Need Your Coffee To Stay Hot On The Way To Work?

Insulated Water Bottle from Futurespace Tech.This stainless steel insulated water bottle from Futurepace Tech will keep your coffee hot for up to 8 hours. Of course it will work just as well for any hot beverage, if you are one of those strange folks who like to drink hot tea.

I’m from the south so much more into iced tea. This water bottle can handle that too. It will keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours.

I love this water bottle. It is pretty, and it is also the best quality water bottle I have ever had. It is really nice.

It feels good when you are holding it.

My hand holding my insulated water bottle from Futurspace Tech.And of course you look good when you are drinking from it. Some of us more or less than others.

Selfie of me drinking from the Futurespace Tech bottle.I never tried to take a selfie while taking a drink before. It isn’t easy. And my hair was a mess. The bottle does look good though don’t it?

I have carried it around for more than a week now. It has gotten bumped on the counters, knocked into the floorboard of the car, and forgotten. I did eventually go looking for it. The water was still cold when I found it a few hours later. I have not left it out to see if it actually stays cold for 24 hours but I see no reason to think it won’t.

It has not dripped, or leaked, or sweat on me yet either. I did mention that I love this bottle right?

It is made of food grade stainless steel, and has two layers. The lid is BPA free and the bottle does not have a plastic lining.

It is sold on and you can buy it on the U.S. website or the U.K. website and has a 100% money back guarantee.

Good Cocoa Makes Great Fudge

Ultra Dark Cocoa from FineNaturals.I love fudge. I don’t care if I need it or not, I still love fudge.

Ultra Dark Cocoa Powder from FineNaturals makes some really great fudge. It does matter what other ingredients you put in (organic butter and milk is best- just saying), but having some really good cocoa to go with other good ingredients does make a difference.

This cocoa powder makes some good chocolate milk too. Or hot chocolate. I’m looking forward to using it for hot chocolate this winter.

Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder from FineNaturals.

I haven’t used it for baking yet, but it should be great for chocolate cakes, or brownies too. I’m thinking about making a fudge cake for Thanksgiving this year, and I have the best cocoa for it already.

FineNaturals says that this cocoa is made from Criollo, which is the rarest and richest variety of cocoa, and was sourced from plants grown at high altitude, which makes it even better.

The company says the cocoa powder is non-GMO, gluten free, and vegan friendly.

It does taste really wonderful, and I am loving it.

I did have to take the powder out of the original package. It is supposed to be resealable, but I could not get it to seal up again, so I put it over in a a container with a lid.

Aging Skin Needs Extra Help

Adamia Therapeutic Repair Lotion

Adamia Therapeutic Repair Lotion is great for aging skin. It contains macadamia oil, which contains Omega-7, and is similar to the natural oils in your skin.

As we age our bodies make less of this oil, and our skin gets dryer, and thinner. If we don’t find a way to replace some of this oil we end up with skin that hurts.

Lots of old folks have problems with their skin tearing. You can tear their skin just by barely touching them. That hurts. It hurts them and it hurts you.

Adamia Therapeutic Repair Lotion replaces some of that oil and helps repair the skin.

It feels good on plain dry skin too. Even if you are not old. I’m only 50, so I have a few years yet to go, but I’m getting there.

I love this lotion. It is some of the best I have ever used. It soaks in and doesn’t feel oily at all. It has a nice barely there smell too. My husband says he can’t smell it, so maybe I’m imagining that.

Adamia Therapeutic Repair Lotion banner

The company says they get the macadamias from a “family-owned, environmentally sustainable macadamia plantation, shelling factory and cold-pressing plant is just off the eastern coast of Australia near beautiful Byron Bay”.

They also say the lotion is non-allergenic, and fragrance free. So either I’m smelling the oil or imagining a scent. It doesn’t really matter, I still like the stuff.

Acquapura Personal Water Filter Straw Review

Acquapura Personal Water Filter StrawThe Acquapura Personal Water Filter Straw is a great item to have around the house in case of emergencies. If there is a major emergency, and you end up running out of clean water, then you will need to clean your water before you drink it.

In a big emergency, like an earthquake, you might not have any way to boil water either, so having a filter that will get the bad stuff out of the water, is going to be really important.

Drinking water that has bacteria in it can make you seriously sick. You really don’t want to have to do that, if you can help it. You don’t want your kids doing it either.

These personal water filer straws come with everything you need. You only have to open it up and attach the prefilter to the bottom and start using the straw. It works just like a regular straw, you suck the water up through it. On the way through the water goes through three different filters, that make the water safe to drink.

Acquapura Personal Water Filter Straw parts.The activated carbon granules in the carbon filter also contains Ionic Silver which is antibacterial, and is supposed to be a tissue healing agent.

After first use this personal water filter should last for a year, or for 1500 liters. If you haven’t used it, it should last, in storage,  for 3 years.

Those of you who like to go camping, and hiking should carry one of these with you too. You never know when you might get lost, or have an accident out in the wilds.

I want one for each of our cars, and at least two for the house. Just in case. We do live on a fault line, and the big one is gonna happen sometime.

What do you think?
