Thanksgiving (My view on the holiday)

As I sit here in my old house, listening to the wild howl outside. I think back to the memories of Thanksgivings in the past. I think of all the times, my family has struggled to even find food to feed ourselves, or living in a home without heat in the winter months of Thanksgiving. I can honestly say, My family has come a long way. My mom used fix us all huge helpings of her homemade stuffing. The turkey she fixed seemed (at the time) to be as big as a dog. I just loved the good old times.

Sitting at the dinner table, with my sister and brother: while mom was cooking at the stove. Dad was never there and my aunts and uncles all had their own families to care for. Thanksgiving was/is the time for being thankful. Not for what we want, but what we have. Me and my old dog is all I have now and that’s OK. I have so much to be thankful for. I have my life and So many memories of the times I got to spend with my whole family, being together. Me and my brother and sister rarely speak to each other anymore. We were never close, my sister was married at a young age and my brother, joined the army when he was 17.

I know deep deep down they love me and I love them. Before my (best friend) mom passed last august, she talked to me two days before she died. She said son, if something happens to me, your brother and sister have your back. I told her nothing was going to happen to you, your a strong lady and very kind. God doesn’t need you right now, we do. Two days later, God needed her (i guess) more than I did.

She died on the operating table and that has been the most unrealistic pain I have ever felt in my life. I guess you can say Mom was sent home to be with Jesus and I was left here alone with the world caving in around me. No help from churches here and no family members came to my aid. No prayers were said for me and no one was here anymore to help me fight my panic disorder and PTSD. I was ALONE.

I am thankful for this site and everyone here. This site was made in memory of my mother and this is how I got past her death. I want you to know that what i feel about you all being here is as real as it gets. Thanksgiving doesn’t always have to be about eating a big meal, it can also be things like this site and you all that are here, (my friends). I wanted to blog on here about what thanksgiving means to me and how you and this site has got me to stand again on my own to feet and feel alive again.

I’m getting emotional now thinking about where I was and where we are going with this toxic foods issue with our health. I felt so alone after my mom died and I went to a dark place. I thought all the thoughts someone would after losing their best friend and having know one there to comfort you. I have finally risen from those ashes. Yes I still mourn the loss of my mother every day and I feel her with me everywhere. I am in college now online at Post University and I wrote 5 books about my life on amazon kindle.

Thanksgiving is the better part of ourselves. That when we come together and share a meal and find the time to be with one another we can have that peace that everyone wants and sometimes never finds. The love we share at Thanksgiving can carry on into the new year as the light that shines on other people struggling with fear of the unknown. I have found a peace in my writing and the study on the toxic chemicals going into our bodies. I have found people that want to know more about the struggle we all face in this life. This thanksgiving, I will be at my home with my dog and I will be thankful to god, you and this site.

I am thankful for my life and mom’s memory, that I can carry on throughout my life. After I’m gone from this earth, I hope this site is carried on through the generations to come, to always get our voices out there to the danger of the foods and drinks we consume that’s killing us off slowly as we progress through life. This is a short post. I just wanted to let everyone know, to have a happy thanksgiving, I hope you all get full of food and have blessed memories with your family and friends.

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE ON THIS SITE AND ONLINE. I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED TIME WITH YOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS.

E- Cigarettes (behind the smoke)

First off, I’d like to say thank you to all the men and women, who have fought and died to make my home in America safe. Also, to all the men and women that serve now. I don’t know the struggles you go through, being away from your families or the pain and heartache of losing someone to war. My brother was in Desert shield/storm war in the 90s. I know each night I would be worried sick about his safety. I was only 14 then.

I’m very proud of him for his service. He is one of those forgotten heroes. You know the service men and women that get back and can’t ever seem to find solid       ground over here, from facing the Horrors they faced overseas. He is doing well for himself now. If took a lot of time and effort, he is a fighter. I honor him today as we salute the heroes that made America Who we are. The land of the free, the home of the brave.

We stand united against any enemy that threads our shores and we stand up for the countries that want the freedoms we so cherish over here in America. In closing this section of post out. I want to just say thank you to all who serve, have served and will serve. Because without you, we are not America. You all are in my prayers, each and every night before I sleep and after I awake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now let’s get right down to the dangers of E-Cigarettes. Oh wow, you will be in for a shock, to know that even though these don’t have the 7000 chemicals in them. They do pose a more serious threat to your health than leading on. Yes they have nicotine in them, but they have a more dangerous Chemical than that.

They E-Cigarette companies have made it seem like, they are safe and go have a puff. They are so wrong. I have found that this chemical, which I have never heard of until I done my research on these. I have found that they cause cancer in the lungs at a higher rate than regular cigarette and more than double the dangers in other areas of your body.

I will get right to the dramatics of the dangers and what threat to you they cause. How you can very easily get too much nicotine from these E-Cigarettes.

 

Today we are talking about VIBE E-Cigarettes. You can buy these here for around $20.00, and they come with 2 free refills. On the side of the package when you buy them. It reads:( WARNING: THIS PRODUCT CAN EXPOSE YOU TO CHEMICALS, INCLUDING GLYCIDOL. KNOWN TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE CANCER. NICOTINE WHICH IS KNOWN TO CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS OR REPRODUCTIVE HARM. FOR MORE INFORMATION GO TO. WWW. P65WARNINGS.CA.GOV.)

It’s in so small writing, I had to use a magnifying mirror to see it. I huge letters on the front it reads. ( THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS NICOTINE. NICOTINE IS AN ADDICTIVE CHEMICAL).

You know why they place this on the front and the small tiny dangers on the side. Because most people won’t read the side. This stands out on the front of the package and you may think (oh it’s OK, it’s safe.) That’s why they place large letters about nicotine on front and dangers in tiny letters on side.

They sell you a product, based off the image of you just smoking in nicotine and really never know the truths behind the pack, until now. I love blowing the lid off these companies, that claim one thing, yet it’s so different on the inside. So now let us look at the inside of this VIBE E-CIGARETTE.

Through the colorful smoke and the sweet smells of these tubes of delight in the E-Cigarette. I have found that the main chemical above Nicotine, is Glycidol- I found that if you breathe this chemical in, it can cause labored breathing, chest pains and coughing

My research even states you my need the use of a breathing tube, to stay breathing. This chemical is no joke. Every puff you make on those E-Cigarettes. You are breathing this in.

That’s not all I found. My research states when this reaches open air, it can be unstable and there have been no reports by anyone states this is safe. The state of California has proven it was cancer causing. This Chemical has an Epoxy in it and is unstable at room temp. I have a quick question.

If the chemical is unstable at room temp. Then when you smoke it, and it heats up. How can that be (even) remotely safe for you to consume.

E-Cigarette companies are not telling us about the dangers of these fake Cigarettes. They are making it sound like they are safe to consume. They are no better than regular Cigarettes.

When the Electronic Cigarettes, first came out. The companies made it sound like; No more dangers from smoking, this new age of getting Nicotine without the harmful chemicals in regular cigarettes. The world was at your finger-tips. Your freedom to choose a different path, without inhaling 7000 chemicals in regular Cigarettes. You life would be altered for the better.

All of those hopes and dreams of a better way with these fake Cigarettes are over. The chemicals in them are just as bad or worse than the regular Cigarettes. Don’t let the companies of these fool you. Yes I know you can buy the tubes without Nicotine, but I warn you, they still have Glycidol in them.

You still getting cancer causing chemicals in your bloodstream and origins. Please before you buy these. Read up on them a bit and do some research on the dangers they pose. I will list the active ingredients in this type of E-Cigarette and you can see for yourself I am telling the truth. Please beware.

 

GYCIDOL

NICOTINE

The batteries in these electronic Cigarettes, have been known to catch fire. Let me run this by you for a moment and see what you think. I’m the type of person that goes above and beyond the dangers and health risks with items I either put in my body or use on my skin.

Think for a minute. If E-Cigarettes have batteries in them. How could you not, be getting the coating or heat from the batteries in your lungs when you inhale these. What if the batteries leak and you breath it in,  getting battery acid inhaled into your bloodstream. I just think these are too dangerous to ever try. 

The risks for using these verses chewing some nicorete gum or just quitting all together would be better for your health In the coming months there will be lawsuits and claims against these companies that make these cigarettes for public consumption. I hope through the information on this site, you will choose to be E-Cigarette free.

 

 

 

Dr Pepper

Refreshing glass of your favorite soda. The taste of Dr. Pepper is by far one of the best tasting in the world. The crisp flavor with the fresh taste of this drink is just awesome. Millions and millions of bottles sold world-wide every year. Those hot days in the south and after a hard day at work in the north. Everyone seems to love the refreshing taste of Dr. Pepper. I can honestly say this drink has no boundaries.

Have you ever just glanced at the ingredients or maybe looked a few of them up. Do you just drink it, because it tastes great and it doesn’t matter what’s in it? I did some research on this and found a few things I thought you might want to look at. Then you can decide if you still want to include this drink into your daily routine.

INGREDEINTS

Carbonated Water

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Caramel Color

Phosphoric Acid

Natural and Artificial Flavors (doesn’t say what kinds) This is a problem for you and me.

Sodium Benzoate (Preservative)

Caffeine

That’s all the ingredients in this drink. Here’s the problem I have with this. When a drink/food company places unethical standards on their drink labels, then that’s not very good business. What I mean by that is, when they say natural and artificial flavors/yet don’t tell you what they are.

Then how would we ever be aware of what could be causing an allergic reaction or making us sick, if we don’t know what flavors they are placing in this drink. So many are doing this now and I think something need to be said to the companies about misrepresenting you and me about the chemicals they are placing in Dr Pepper without ever saying what they are.

The definition of artificial is: Made by humans rather than ac curing naturally. So with that being said. There are chemicals in this drink and they aren’t saying what they are. That’s unethical in my book. Whoever is running the companies that neglect to tell you and me about all the ingredients in something should be fired. I would never run a business based of being unfair and dishonest to you about what I have in a food/drink product to sell more of it.

I will get on to other ingredients, because I could talk all night about the ways companies neglect to include information in their products. One thing to think about is: If their not worried about the profit of their products, then why hide the additives by placing the slogan (Natural and Artificial flavorings) to their labels. Why also would the FDA allow that? Some serious Questions need to be asked about this issue.

CARAMEL COLOR

I never much thought about this coloring until I researched it for this site. I bet you didn’t know this causes cancer in tests in California. This is made from acids and salts. Not your everyday Caramel candy like you thought huh? This coloring is Amber or Yellow in color. There have been people singing petitions all over the USA to get the FDA to ban this substance because of the 2 cancer causing agents found in this coloring. Please check on this coloring agent, it’s really that bad.

Phosphoric Acid

This Chemical is man-made. Can cause swelling of your tongue and lips. This Chemical can cause you to have upset stomach and bloating. Flushing of the skin also can a cure. This Chemical has been linked to Kidney Disease and stones. This is used in the dentist office to scar your teeth for fillings. Also, is used in medications. This is used in car waxes and dish soaps as well. Man-made chemicals like this should never be around anything we eat or drink. This is used in Dr Pepper to cause mold to not grow.

As the Chemical clouds loom over your health and the companies continue to harm us with the additives/chemicals in our foods. We will continue to stand strong in the one voice that can make a difference in this world filled with factories that produce the harmful chemicals in our foods. This picture above says it all. The way our lives change in an instant sometimes, can having lasting effects on our minds and bodies.

I feel if we as the consumer speak about the chemicals, that harms us. Also, The way the food companies are hiding the truths on the labels to misinform you and me about the dangers with their own food/drink products. We can one day in the future change the way they go about business and change the way we are taken advantage of. I will continue with my findings about the added chemicals in Dr Pepper.

SODIUM BENZOATE

This is the worst I’ve ever researched. This chemical destroys your DNA. That’s right It destroys your DNA structure. Here’s what this is in besides our food and drink products. Mouthwashes, creams, cosmetics, and toothpastes. This Chemical is a Cancer causing agent. When it passes your liver and before it filters through your urin stream. This chemical gets attached to the walls of your bladder.

Check out the cancer causing side effects of this chemical online in your more in depth research. For all my friends out their across the world, please beware of this additive in your products. Side effects are: Central nervous system disease, infection, Lymphatic disorder, and liver and kidney problems. This is the real deal, when it comes to the very bad chemicals in your products. Irritability, headache, mood disorders and anxiety.

To be completely honest, that’s the worst ever for panic sufferers that love their Dr Peppers every day. Who would’ve ever known that. Antiseptic, wow. This Chemicals other main use, besides a food additive is Antiseptic. This chemical is a type of salt. The problematic issues with this additive out-weighs the good in Dr Pepper.

 

I chose this picture of a pink rose for this reason. With so many of the chemicals in our foods that cause cancer and the people behind placing them in our foods. That made me think of all the men and women and children that die every year of this terrible disease. Cancer is such a scary/but truthful word. Meaning when you have it, sometimes you lose hope and forget about everyone and everything that exists in this world. It makes you realize you may die and not be able to see your son or daughter or grand-babies grow up. It makes you realize death is real. Some on the other hand fight until the end and never give up hope.

Some beat it with great support and faith in their communities and faith in their god. Cancer is the only word that we don’t wont to hear above all others in the doctors’ office and when we do our minds just go blank. I promise their’s always hope for anyone out their, that may have it or knows someone who does. I’ve seen people beat cancer with 5% chance of living and stage 4.

SO never give up hope, their is always people out their just like you, that will help you through it. This pink rose is the symbol of hope and the everlasting struggle that people with cancer go through daily/yearly. I feel for all those out their young and old with this terrible disease. I feel your pain of losing someone to this effect. I know the struggle of sitting by the hospital bed in the living-room waiting on your loved one to pass on.

I know the struggle of laying next to your loved one, knowing they don’t remember you because of this terrible disease. When we buried my step-dad in 1999, I remember siting at the grave-side waiting for him to get up and come home with us. I will never forget him as my dad and I will always honor his memory as someone cares and thoughtful. Someone that got Cancer from stomach, liver and lungs. (while we were on vacation)- stage four- 6 months to live and he lived 13 months. He didn’t smoke. Cancer is real and chemicals in our foods that cause them are real.

I promise this site will change the way you view the chemicals in our foods and the terrible diseases we get from them. I am the type of person, that says what’s on my mind. I get so emotional sometimes sharing these chemicals and what they do. I try to include on here the personal struggles I have gone through and to let you know I am with you in your journey to the truth.

The more I think about the chemicals and how the food and drink companies lie to us about what’s in our food and drinks. It makes me want to research more and more, to post in on here for you to see what to stay away from. After researching Dr Pepper, I can say to you today, I will never again eat or drink anything with these chemicals in them.

Have a great night/day to all my friends around the world that have joined here and thanks to the ones that recently joined. I am proud to have you join us in the one voice for toxic foods in our pantries.

 

Macaroni and Cheese dinner (original) 7.25oz

The melt in your mouth cheesy flavors of mouth shattering taste of cheesy goodness of macaroni and Cheese. Now doesn’t that sound mouth-watering. I know most of you love Macaroni and Cheese and some of you can’t stand it. I used to slice up a couple chunks of the real American cheese, placing it in the Macaroni for a better Cheesy flavor.

Most of the world has or will eat Macaroni and Cheese in their life and I hope you are OK with the chemicals I have found in this food item. I would recommend throwing the cheese in these boxes or packages away and use real cheese in it’s place.

Most of the terrible Chemicals are found in the Cheese sauce in these food items. Most of the Boxes or packages are cheap enough to just add your own Cheese or just buy a bag of noodles and make your own. I will show you what I do at the end of this post. I make the best in the world and There’re no chemicals in my Macaroni and Cheese.

 

Ii just makes my day getting on here, helping my friends with their information about toxic chemicals in foods and just having a conversation. I promise I will stay on topic with this post and make sure by the end of this. You will know everything there is to know about Mac and cheese. Knowing what your eating is the number one way to live a healthy life. Here’s the additives in the brand (Best Choice) Macaroni and Cheese.

CHEDDAR CHEESE SAUCE INGREDIENTS:

DAIRY PRODUCT SOLIDS

SALT

CHEDDAR CHEESE ( MILK, CHEESE CULTURE, SALT, ENZYMES)

MODIFIED CORN STARCH

The ingredients in the Macaroni is:

What are your thoughts? Do you see anything out of the normal with what’s supposed to be in our foods. There’s so much to do in the world of toxic chemicals in our foods. After researching the Cheese package in this box of Macaroni and finding other chemicals once again in our foods. I hope that if you buy Mac and Cheese for your families. You will use real cheese, that will cut back on a lot of sodium that’s in this box of Macaroni and Cheese.

Before I get to the chemicals and ingredients in the food item.

I will show you the full daily values in this box of Macaroni and Cheese:

THESE ARE THE TOTALS FOR THE BOX

CALORIES:750

FAT:4.5g

SATURATED FAT:1g

TRANS FATS: 0g

CHOLESTEROL: 15mg

SODIUM:1710mg

POTASSIUM:870mg

CARBS:150g

FIBER:3g

SUGARS:27g

PROTEIN:27g

VITAMIN A:60%

VITAMIN C:0%

CALCIUM:30%

IRON:45%

 

Let’s get down to the chemicals and additives in this food product, letting you know either to avoid or just keep chowing down on the cheesy goodness. I will start off with one I think needs some attention to.

TURMERIC OLEORESIN

The claim on the box is: Quoted: Original (made with real cheese) no synthetic colors. Yet this additive is added for color. This additive in some case studies can cause upset stomach, also stimulating contractions. A lot of people in the world don’t know, this additive causes your blood to thin out. Making you bleed more easily. So all my friends out there, that takes blood thinners (beware) of this product.

Turmeric is great if you have any problems with inflammation. This additive is a true Anti-inflammatory. This additive Also improves your pain tolerances and can help in aiding your liver functioning properly. The yellowing pigments in Turmeric is Made in an Industry setting: Meaning the claim of no synthetic coloring is false.

Definition of synthetic is: Made by Chemical Synthesis to Imitate a natural product. If the yellow pigments are made in the industrial setting and not all Natural, then the claims for no Synthetic coloring is a false claim. Maybe instead of trying to sell their products to unsuspecting consumers, doing a little research before assuming people and websites aren’t out there to make case for their false claims.

The amount of research that went into just this additive was pretty intense. I was trying to find the chemical balance and the natural extracts in this additive, for me to say (yes it’s all natural and no synthetic properties) I will never lie to you and always set it straight with you about these additives/chemicals in our foods.

So in truth I think this isn’t all natural and yes it has great points and some not so great points. If your not having issues with you blood and your not pregnant, then all in all it’s OK to consume.

THIAMINE MONONITRATE

This additive is Synthetic and cause issues with your health problems you may have already had. Studies state if you already have kidney or liver conditions. This additive may cause you to go into kidney failure or cause your liver to lose it’s properly functioning properties. What people fail to realize is: All these Vitamins that are included in our meals are great, unless they are man-made.

These vitamins that are Synthetic, are sometimes dangerous and can cause extreme health problems. Skin rashes and sweating, also Flushed skin can be the normal side effects from this additive. If you have any issues with your breathing, call a doctor right away. With this additive, you will know now this is (yet) another man-made chemical vitamin.

 

I don’t think anyone likes to picture this image when they are eating their favorite meal or snack. The false reality we are given when we eat the meals we fix for our families is, the places like you see above are where most of the synthetic chemicals in our foods are produced. The buildings may be newer and may look pretty and neat. The reality is Synthetic-means fake. So Anything that says Vitamin A, B, C,D,E and so on and also states Synthetic in the description, you will know that means.

They were produced from Chemical reaction to man-made Partials. Being produced in a building or Industry, like the one above: Makes my stomach churn if I think about the meals I used to eat containing these chemicals. The food companies will tell you It’s safe and there’s nothing wrong with eating chemicals in your foods. I just hope from this message and this website you will be truly informed at the hazards we truly face in our fight to a safer meal for our families.

Getting back to the additives now:

DISODIUM PHOSPHATE

This is truly one of the nasty chemicals in our foods. This chemical has been linked to sever kidney disease and cancer in lab rats. This chemical has some of the worst side effects Out there. I’ll get to those in just a second. According to the CDC, this chemical can Cough and Sore throat and also skin rashes. Heart Palpitations, Chest pain, Seizures, swelling of the tongue, Nausea, fainting, Breathing difficulties. Those are a few of the worst side effects of this chemical.

The issue I’m having with everyone in the FDA and the Food Companies saying:(with the low amount in our foods this is harmless). SO my question to the people stating that is. How much is too much and what if I eat 5 packs of Mac and cheese and I drink 15 cokes a day. What then? (See) they tell you per serving that it’s OK to eat or drink. They don’t take into consideration you will eat more than that serving per day.

That’s when the problems start happening. (Just to let you know I don’t eat that much) Some do though and their health problems could be caused from to many of these chemicals in our foods at once with the large portion we are consuming at a time.

I learned from my research, this additive is added to food items to make them edible. Do you know what that tells me from a consumer standpoint? That lets me know, if they didn’t add this to the food or drink item. The food product wouldn’t be edible. Meaning you couldn’t eat it without something going wrong with your health.

I hope this information helps you with your choices in life as my friends and fellow toxic food members.

This picture sums it all up in a nutshell. The simple truth to all this chaos with our health, is the toxic chemicals in our foods are in part. Making us sick, Making us spend more time at the doctors’ office, Causing cancers and failures in our health to the point of no return. Toxic chemicals should never be anywhere near food items. When you see a smoke stack in the distance, now you can wonder what food is that chemical going into.

That’s the facts of life as a human being on this blue planet. The chemicals in our foods are causing more and more people to die at earlier ages and causing our bodies to give out sooner, causing our organs to shut down or start failing.

Life used to be basic meals for the family: White beans and fresh cornbread, or Chicken and Mashed Potatoes. Now it’s where you can’t even buy much of anything without some form of chemical or additive in your food. Where has the good old days gone. The new age is not just in the tech world. New age in the health world is Toxic Mashed Potatoes and Toxic White Beans and Corn Bread. Toxic foods are the new era of the world.

I could go into the foundations of the USA and the power the FDA and food companies have over the so-called studies they perform every year to show you the consumer, the foods are safe to eat. Yet all these warning and with Europe banning most of them in their foods. That makes you us think if they are telling us the truth or just covering up their own agenda. Till next time, my fellow toxic food friends. Have a great day/night.

 

When you click on the link, you will see there are around 100 servings per bulk case of these. Eden Valley makes some of the best tasting mac and cheese on the planet. Their other products are great to. No chemicals added. 

 

 

 

MAC AND CHEESE (MY WAY)

5 cups of Whole Grain Macaroni (not enriched)

1 teaspoon spoon of salt

1 tablespoon of fresh lemon

1 teaspoon of pepper

100% real American Cheddar Cheese (5) slices

Cook down the macaroni till it’s almost done. you can tell the texture of it,right before the Macaroni is done. Mix the Lemon, Pepper, Salt, and Cheese together in a bowl. I always used a shredder to shred the cheese, then it melts more evenly with the ingredients. After the Macaroni is done drain the water and add The melted yummy goodness of the cheese with your macaroni for the best tasting Mac and Cheese on the planet. By posting this and talking about it, now I have a craving for it (myself). lol.

Worcestershire sauce (french’s)

I wasn’t going to write anything about this very tasty sauce. Who doesn’t love the taste of there steaks and sometimes hamburgers with this on it. I was completely shocked at the ingredients in this. It clams on the bottle, the promise is Quoted ( We promise real ingredients, great taste and our community).

That’s the claim on there word. I will post all the ingredients in this sauce and you can judge for yourself : If its all real ingredients. One of the ingredients will surprise you, like it did me. I have never liked the main food item in this sauce and couldn’t believe this was in there. I’ll get to that in a moment. First I’ll give you all the ingredients and then what they are and the side effects, if any.

FRENCH’S WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE ADDITIVES

Distilled Vinegar

Water

Molasses

Sugar

Salt

Spices (doesn’t say what spices)

Anchovies ( this one shocked me)

Citric Acid

Natural Flavors ( doesn’t say what flavors)

Contains Soy

Celery seed

Xanthan gum

Tamarind Extract

Let us get to the ingredient I had questions about being A real ingredient from there claims this is all real ingredients. Xanthan Gum: It’s used in the drilling for oils and it is used in aiding the rotting of plants to improve there rotting. I promise that’s what this is for.

I researched this for a couple hours, because I wanted to make sure you had all the information you needed to make the statement of real ingredients either stand or fail as just a promo stunt to get you to buy there products. Also, is found in wallpaper glue and paint and ink. You see when people tell me real ingredients, I want to think of natural flavors and fresh produce. This additive isn’t a real ingredient. This is a type of bacteria from black molded corn or other vegetables in the garden.

Tamarind Extract: The extraction of this seed is sometimes used to cast bones and eye drops for your eyes. The fruit from the Tamarind tree is used in medicine for patients with:Liver and Gall-Bladder issues. This fruit tree may cause you to have to run to the bathroom if eaten too much of something with this in it. My research shows this extract may cause your blood-sugar to become lower, then causing problems with your health.

Women who are breast-feeding should monitor themselves around this ingredient. I couldn’t find much information about this good or bad. So its best to ask your doctor first before consuming this additive. BIG WARNING HERE: Aspirin and Ibuprofen will interact with this additive. Ask your doctor before taking any of these medicines with this additive.

I have to tell you all about Anchovies, so here’s the research. Anchovies are small salt-water fish and are very oily. Most of the time in preparation of grinding them up for use in our food, they aren’t gutted and all the organs and other things in the fish are processed out into our foods.

Domoic Acid: Look this up sometimes. This is found in a lot of marine animals. This acid isn’t effected by heat and sometimes makes its way into our foods. Health and Human services has issued a warning about eating Anchovies due to this Acid being harmful to humans.

Who would’ve ever believed this sauce would contain Anchovies? I think for the most part the ingredients lives up to the hype about real ingredients and just a few I believe aren’t real natural ingredients. If you have a statement saying only real ingredients are in a food item, make sure those real ingredients aren’t found in paints and inks. Make sure to clarify what flavorings you add to make it natural flavorings, not just the phrase natural flavorings.

So many times’ food companies will add the phrase natural flavorings to the label and then add whatever they like to the product and that’s there safety net when someone dies or becomes ill from eating there products. If I owned a company that produced a food product, I would never place short-cut phrases in the food items just to make an extra buck off your health. It undermines the claims of all natural or real ingredients in the foods we consume when there is so much left out that really goes into the foods.

For example if I was selling a car to a customer and The only thing I had to say about the options were: ( There’re tons of options for this model and I promise you will love it). Where in that statement lets you know anything about the options. Most of the time you wouldn’t buy that car, because of the lack of information about the car. Same thing here, when food companies place phrases like natural flavorings or spices to a food product how do you know what they are, (You don’t) so why would you buy that product without knowing what you are eating? This website has opened my eyes to so much of this going on in the production of our foods and drinks we consume in America and around the World.

I just had someone earlier ask me to sell this website again. In case this person and anyone else asks me to stop talking about the toxic chemicals in our foods. Everything in life doesn’t have a price and my voice and the challenges we as a human race can’t be bought. Sometimes in life you have to believe in something so strong, that when it comes time to climb that mountain and face those with all the money and the freedom to buy anything they want and let them know I will never sell my voice and I will not let the people on this site and the millions around the world that one day will see the content on here down. I want to help people make better choices for there lives through the information on this site.

Why does everything have to be about money. From the food companies short-cutting ways to make a couple extra bucks at our cost. When we consume the chemical induced foods while they are sitting back collecting the profits from the chemicals in our foods. I know everyone wants to be rich and I would love to have a little extra money from time to time. When we as consumers feel the need to share our voices on the dangers of toxic chemicals in our food to the people out there. Some people may not have the time to look up toxic additives, because of the hard work they put in every day for there families or may not have the options to research everything about foods.

I will never stop talking about the chemicals in our foods and I will never sell out to the people with all the money to silence my voice. This site will live on through you and the millions around the world that care about what we are eating and drinking. I will post about Healthy options for breakfast and lunch on here tomorrow, that I eat every week and maybe you could try it and see how much better you will feel after eating healthier and having the energy you deserve. Thanks for being a part of this great site and thank you to the people that are joining in the future.

Stand for freedom

Stand for freedom. So many people around the world hate Americans and so many people here on both sides of the political agenda, seem to hate each other. I watch the news every day and to me it’s just getting ugly here in America. You have NFL football players kneeling at games, when has that ever happened in the history of America. Football used to be my life. I lived to watch those Sunday and sometimes Monday night football games. I think Those guys that kneel at the flag aren’t doing it to hate what we stand for or Hating on all the men and women who has given the price for them to be able to do that.

I think they are doing because they can. They seem to forget if we were like other countries overseas, they would be in prison or worse for disrespecting our values. In my eyes and others eyes around the United States, what they are doing is crippling the NFL and the loyal fans from around the world that have watched their favorite teams each and every week. It’s just rightfully disrespectful to get paid millions of dollars to play one of the best sports in the world and still disrespect the true values of America.

The money that each football player is earned comes from the revenue of sales from tickets and other concessions from the games. In other words from the hard-working Americans that go to the games and buy that bag of popcorn at the game. So in truth when they kneel at the flag in games they are stepping on all our flags, because in part the money in their pockets came from us. This is why we are the land of the free and home of the brave. We as Americans have the right to protest and kneel at the flag, because that’s our freedom, I don’t agree with it.

I believe if they kneel at the flag, then they should give the money back and retire from football and get a 9-5 job, like most of us have. Football will always be that one sport in America that has millions of loyal fans and the ethical stance of some should never reflect what most do in the NFL. I truly stand for freedom because without the blood shed for this flag, we would be living in communists times and freedom would never be an option in our lives.

Why is so hard for everyone in the world, in every nation to get along. Why does everyone have to be top dog, or the most powerful nation. We all live in a world of chaos. I will never know the struggles of what people go through in other countries and I feel for them. I know for the most part the world could live in peace and we all could stand for freedom. Freedom doesn’t have to be just in America, it can be worldwide.

Do you think the world will end one day from all the powerhouses trying to overshadow the other? Would it take some invasion from outer space to get us to come together? World peace and freedom are sung in a lot of songs every year and yet we are in total chaos with every nation fighting or wanting to fight each other and for what? I am guessing you know where I stand on wars and fighting. Just to fight.

 

Political stances in America has gotten to the point of war within ourselves. I think it will get to the point of all out chaos before it’s over. With a well-known person calling for the military to take our president out or for other congressmen and women calling for impeachment and the ford issue with the supreme court pick. My stance on all this is neutral.

I used to be a Republican before all the fighting back and forth has gotten out of hand. The core values of America is being thrown out the window, when the people in America that have power either from being in (the movies to singing to working in government) to control the voice of every day Americans is crazy, but it has always been that way with America.

When the view of a political party gets so degradable or unethical, then I think they should re-examine who they are as a person first, then their political stance. The good old days of just disagreeing without punishment is over. This is the new America, where depending on what Hat you have on or the words that are spoken, you will be condemned to a life of shame, according to both sides of the political agenda.

The way we view ourselves should change and we should go to the table on our issues with each other and stop stepping over everyone’s word in this country. America is supposed to stand for freedom from this type of behavior.

Freedom: Because of the men and women of this great nation that paid that price. I never much thought about joining the military until the twin towers fell and then it was a bit late for me because of my age, I wanted to fight for the people that lost their lives in battle and in the buildings that fell and the people on the planes. I had a fire in me that burned with pride for America. I get super emotional just thinking about 9/11 and that was 17 years ago. I will never know the true pain of losing someone in this terrible attack on our freedom and democracy or losing a loved one in the military, that fought and died to make my home a better place to live.

My big brother was in desert shield/storm war and the effects that has had on his life is overwhelming. I will always honor him as my hero and best friend. He was a tank commander in the army and in special operations for a little while, until becoming a drill sergeant, then retiring. (He is an honorable man and brother). When we stand for freedom, we stand for everyone throughout the hundreds of years that have paved the way for us to be able to live the lives we want and love today.

So many people want to become an American and that’s great. I wish everyone in the world the freedom and Democracy we have, here in America. There are so many around the world that live in poverty-stricken countries that will never have that voice and freedom to do even what I’m doing on this website. Voicing my concern and frustration about the toxic chemicals in our foods.

I am heartbroken because of that and I know some that join here or have already joined here knows what I’m talking about. Standing for freedom means so much, yet over here in America it’s taken for granted. I wish for peace and happiness in everyone’s life, yet so many will never feel that pride I feel in my heart for America.

 

Just hitting the open road on a Harley or taking a cruise down the interstate in your car/truck taking in all the wonders of the United States. It’s just the most peaceful feeling in the world to be able to just get out and do what we like without being condemned by others. Standing for freedom is the cornerstone of the foundation values we have as Americans. That being said, why are so many in America rejecting that value? We all have to stand strong together, when that happens growth can ac cure in the most extreme ways.

The homeless will be able to get off the streets, people that are addicted to drugs can get better organized help they deserve and the hungry can eat. Just think if everyone in America stood together and helped one another (how strong would we be). America without hunger and poverty and drug addiction is an America worth fighting for.

 

no one knows this until now, I have been paying it forward in small yet awesome ways. every time I go through the drive-thru somewhere in town to get bags on Ice, (yes almost any burger place sells ice through the drive-thru). I will pay for the persons meals behind me and drive off. I have also payed electric bills and loan payments for others without them ever knowing it. Everyone in America can do their own random act of kindness. I ask you to go do something big or small for the fellow Americans and if your overseas you can do something nice there to. Post your comment on this post and let me know that others are like me out there.

If I was rich, I would never live over my means and I would love to give to the needy. It makes your heart melt away to think of all the people in America that lives their daily lives on the streets and goes to bed hungry at night. Honestly just today I was sitting in my truck wondering where I was going to get my meal today and I finally broke down and sold my X box to get some food.

After I was done buying what I needed for the rest of the month, I gave the rest to a homeless man that walks the streets every day here. My mom has always taught me to give and never stop giving. Doesn’t matter if your like me (poor) or you have tons of money everyone can give something to someone.

Be that ripple in the world that makes a difference. Be that one person that cares for others as you care for yourself. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t love your fellow human. If we as a human race would stand strong in the pride we have for our Country and stand strong in the men and women who have died to make it that way, then we can help when someone needs our help and be proud to be an American.

If your in other countries and your on this site, then show the world you are your own voice and live for that freedom that exists in everyone s soul. Be the rock that someone needs in the world, be the one person everyone can count on to listen to what they have to say and just be a friend to the friendless. Be a shoulder to cry on and that heart that loves and always stand for the freedom. Never let those people in the world make you feel any less human because you care for others. Never let the emotions of some that won’t stand for the flag denote your pride in the united states of America.

Never let the government workers shut your voice down and belittle you because their human kindness is gone. Never let anyone tell you that the world is a chaotic thunderstorm forming around your soul, that will carry you to the grave. We are that voice and we will always stand with the helpless, the hopeless and the needy, because without hope and love for our fellow man what are we as a human being really fighting for.

Monster Energy 16oz

So many people across America drink these, yet so many people across America die every year from Caffeine intoxication. I have an irregular heartbeat, so I’ve never consumed these drinks. I think people are always looking for reasons to stay awake at work or crushing it, to study for a big test in school, without fully understanding what goes into these drinks. I received this can the other day from a friend, while I was shopping in the store.

She said here put this on your site, so after researching everything there is to know about Monster Energy Drink, I can finally do that. I choose the picture above to (kinda) go with what I have found out about these Energy drinks. Please be seated when reading this, thanks. I will get straight to the post.

MONSTER ENERGY INGREDEINTS:

Carbonated Water

Sugar

Glucose

Citric Acid

Natural Flavors (Doesn’t say what kinds)

Taurine

Sodium Nitrate

Color added (Doesn’t say what color dye they used, this could be a problem)

Panax Ginseng Extract

L-Carnitine

L-Tartrate

Caffeine (160mg per can)

Sorbic Acid

Benzoic Acid

Niacinamide (primarily used for Acne treatment)

Sucralose ( used to treat panic disorder, depression, Alzheimer disease and Autism)

Salt

D-Glucuronolactone

Inositol (used for treating:Schizophrenia, ADHD, Panic disorder and Hair growth)

Guarana Extract (Caffeine)

Pyridoxine Hydrochloride ( VIT B6)

Riboflavin

Maltodextrin

Cyanocobalamin (man-made Vit B12)–Also in the same family as CYANIDE–WOW

25 additives and chemicals in this energy drink, I had my work cut out for me, with all these dangerous and additive chemicals in this drink. I just can’t see how the people that makes these drinks aren’t sued or have not removed them from the store shelves, for all this misinformation that’s on the can. First off you can’t just say color added to anything without clarifying what color.

If someone drinks this that’s allergic to blue color dye or red color dye, then what. Because they didn’t think to clarify on their products important information, then why wouldn’t that be a suit against negligence within the company. I am profoundly disturbed for you, (my friends) at my findings that;s in this Energy Drink, this is for my friends out there everywhere, please for your health, stop drinking these.

Get more sleep by going to bed earlier and eat healthy food products, that will give you natural energy. You don’t need these to have energy, I will show you other ways to achieve the desired energy you need in order to make through the day. I have one more thing to say about the people that makes this Energy drink, before I post that findings.

At the bottom of the can It states this, Quoted: ( CONSUME RESPONSIBILY: NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN, PEOPLE WITH SENSITIVITY TO CAFFEINE, PREGNANT WOMEN OR WOMEN WHO ARE NURSING). If the product clearly states it’s not recommended for children, then why does the can have Call Of Duty X box game logos all over the can. If they cared about children not drinking these dangerous products, then why have children games advertising on your cans. SO many companies make false assumptions in their products, to think someone wouldn’t catch them in their false claims. I wanted to share with you, about the misinformation on the can.

L-CARNITINE: Side effects are: Nausea, Upset Stomach, Heartburn, Seizures. Can cause your breath to smell fishy. My research states, if you have seizure disorder or have had seizures in the past stop drinking or consuming anything with this additive in it. If you have Thyroid issues don’t use this additive, also the drug Warfarin interacts with this additive. My research does state this drug is used to treat patients with these health issues: Heart failure, kidney disease, chest pain, infertility. This drug/additive has good and bad uses and side effects. Just use with caution.

BENZOIC ACID: This drug is used to prevent infection caused by bacteria, also is used to treat burns, insect bites. My research states when this is used in foods it’s mildly toxic. This drug has been linked to attention disorders in children and adult, also can cause sever Asthma problems in adults and children. The side effects for this drug is: Eye damage, rash or burning feeling. Irritation of the lungs, shortness of breath.

According to research. It states to use extreme caution when handling and use in the outdoors for good airflow. Seek medical attention if exposed to your skin, also stated if you inhale this chemical to seek medical attention. The extended statement shows types of hazards for this chemical are: Explosion, Exposure and skin contact. Just to add a note for you, this is almost the same thing as Benzoyl Peroxide. Something to think about.

NIACINAMIDE: Side effects for this additive are:Confusion, swelling of the tongue, red rashes on your skin. Dizziness, leg cramps, and insomnia. This additive is Synthetic and is made form Coal tar, Ammonia, and Formaldehyde (Embalming fluid). This chemical is used to treat Acne.

My research also states this can cause your blood sugar to rise, causing insulin problems. If you have issues with your gallbladder or liver diseases don’t use this chemical. This additive is a risky chemical, use with extreme caution.

 

I feel somewhat confused, because the reason all these chemicals in Monster Energy Drinks are supposed to be to make you alert to get through your day without falling asleep at our jobs. I think I have figured out the reasoning behind adding so many chemicals that promote and demote health. Because for one thing it’s a lot cheaper to use man-made chemicals rather than healthy additives and if one additive makes you sick then the other additive will counter-act with that additive to equal the side effect out.

Meaning if I drink A cup of coffee, because I like the taste yet it has me wired, so I take some sleeping pills to equal the effects the coffee has on my body. This is the same thing this drink is doing, with the dangerous chemicals in it, they will interact with each other and try to cancel the side effects from one to the other out.

Can you believe, if you’re drinking this drink that is has additives in it that has Embalming fluid in it or has a chemical that’s used to treat Acne. What are they thinking?. About the can promoting children, by having x box and ps4 games on their can, yet saying not recommended for children. Adding flavorings to the can, yet not saying what those flavorings are. Plainly stating just Color Added, yet doesn’t say what color was added, It’s complete disregard for your safety and mine.

I truly hope this research has helped you understand this energy drink a little more, I have posted the additives so if you have a question about any of them, you can look them up to help yourself out in the ongoing struggles we face in society with the harmful chemicals in our foods/drinks.

Welch’s Grape Jelly 18oz jar

Before I get into this post, my apologies for not being on here in 2 days. I had homework due last night and I am finished with it now, so I can work on this site and post what I’ve researched lately. I have done a lot of research on Tune and Welch’s Grape Jelly. I’ll post both of them on this post. Also, thanks to the new people joining this site and I officially welcome you.

WELCH’S GRAPE JELLY

This jelly has been in peoples pantries and in their cub bards for a long time and without knowing what’s in this awesome tasting jelly, you couldn’t ever decide if it still needed to be there (right). I found one big additive in this jelly that is in a lot of other jellied food items and some drinks. So many people spread this on their toast in the mornings without really knowing what they’re spreading on their toast. Does that make sense to you?

I really am thankful to gain the knowledge and understanding of what’s in our foods and what to stay away from. I hope to list every single food/drink item on this site, so you can always look back at the items and determine for yourselves if you want that in your home or in your stomach. When I think of Jelly, I think of grapes and sugar, right? I no when me and my dad made grape jelly every year before he passed away, I helped smash them and can the jelly and put it up every year. Along with tomatoes, cucumber relish, and squash. I will list my mom’s recipe for squash relish on here, maybe tomorrow night, it’s so good.

The active ingredients in Welch’s Grape Jelly isn’t as bad as a lot of food products I’ve researched on this site, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have bad stuff in it. I will list all the ingredients in the jelly below and you can see what’s in the tasty treat.

INGREDIENTS

Concord Grapes

Corn Syrup

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Fruit Pectin

Citric Acid

Sodium Citrate

That’s it, see not to many ingredients and yet it’s not just grapes and sugar in this little jar of Welch’s Grape Jelly. Do you see anything catching your eye or do they all look like normal additives in all our foods we consume. I see 2 different types of Corn Syrup and That one additive (Sodium Citrate). I promised there would be one additive that would stand out in the research I did. Why is it that we like jelly on our toast in the mornings, Is it because it tastes like grapes or the sweetness of the jelly that gives way to our taste buds?

I will break all these additives and chemicals down, so you will no what you are eating and if you find additives in the post that are in other food/drinks you buy and consume regularly, then you might want to start buying other items with healthier additives or no additives at all in them.

CORN SYRUP- HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP-One table spoon of corn syrup equals to 16 grams of sugar, do you no why there’s so much corn syrup and High Fructose corn syrup in our foods? It’s because the cost is way cheaper than regular sugar. These two additives go hand in hand with each other. They are way sweeter than sugar and the UK and other nations have banned the use of them, for their hidden high sugar contents.

Research has found that both of these additives are 10 times more addicting than sugar. When my mom baked my birthday cakes in the past, she would use honey in place of any sugars or the corn syrup. Honey is sweet and also has tons of antioxidants in it. When you need something sweet and you need corn syrup/use honey instead for your health.

FRUIT PECTIN- The only side effects I found for this is bloating and stomach cramps. I also found out that the food companies could use this additive instead of the gelatin ( which has animal parts in it), for everything gelatin is used for. So that begs to question why are food companies not using Fruit Pectin/verse/gelatin.

Fruit Pectin is found in all fruits naturally and when you mix Pectin and sugar you get the gel found in the food products. Also, Pectin is great for Inflammation and arthritis. This also has fiber characteristics and can cause your stool to become loose. Overall this isn’t bad and could be useful in replacing bad additives.

CITRIC ACID- This occurs naturally in citrus fruits, from what I’ve seen if you aren’t allergic to fruits, then it’s perfectly OK to eat and is great in antioxidants.

SODIUM CITRATE- The most common use for this drug, it’s used to treat a condition called metabolic acidosis. Can cause Muscle Spasms, Elevated Sodium. Here are the side effects: weakness, numbness, diarrhea, dizziness. After reading so much on this chemical drug, I think overall it does cause your acid levels to become reduced in your urine and without really knowing how much they add to our foods, no one can really say yes or no to the side effects unless you have them. Then I would go to my doctor and have them look in their medical book on the additive you’re having issues with.

If we were giving out grades for the products I research on here, this one would get a C+, the grape jelly has some good and bad in it. It’s not like the Rice Krispi Treats that I posted about the other day. If we as a human race on this awesome green and blue planet will open our eyes to the dangers in our foods, then we may just live out our lives one day in the near future without the chemicals in the foods we consume.

I think with your help in spreading the word, that we will stand strong in One Voice for toxic foods that are in our stores worldwide and no one day soon, change will be here: So that our families and their families will see a brighter future for eating healthy and living our their lives knowing that their grandparents was that voice for change in the foods they eat.

 

 

 

CANNED TUNA- DOLLAR GENERAL BRAND

I will add a note to this post about the tuna I researched also tonight in this post because this is the cheapest tuna and also the healthiest I’ve seen anywhere. Here’s the ingredients to this 5oz can of tuna. + Light Tuna (scombridae), water, Vegetable broth, (Peas,Carrots, Celery Extract), Salt. That’s all that’s in the can and the serving size per can is 2. The salt is the biggest thing with 280mg per serving. I cut down a lot on salt with draining the juice and then placing water in the can and draining it again.

That’s the easiest way I have found to drain most of the salt out of the can. The tuna tastes better than name brand tuna and it’s way chunkier than regular tuna. I bet your wondering, if the can says light tuna then what is the s-word right, well here’s what the s-word is: Because sorry to shock you it’s in the family of tuna, but not tuna.

For the longest time I couldn’t figure out why the can said light tuna, how can you have a light tuna. I was thinking did the tuna not weigh much or something in that nature. Why in the world wouldn’t the place that makes the tuna fish put on the can light tuna, well now I no.

The Scombridae is in the tuna fish family with around 55 other species of fish. The only thing that got to me was, if it’s not tuna then why call it tuna. What if someone was allergic to the Scombridae and they ate this and died or got very sick. The can says tuna. Looks like that company would lose in court, because to me that’s unethical to sell something under false name of something else. Either way it’s really good and I would recommend it to anyone that likes tuna and isn’t allergic to Scombridae.

This brought to mind about me being in the grocery store the other day and I see some crab meat for $2 and I purchased the package thinking I can’t wait to get home and have some nice crab. Where I live, it’s not a regular thing to have crab anywhere. So when I get home, I break open the package and It states it’s fully cooked crab meat. I heat it up and taste it. WOW, for sure wasn’t crab. I read the package and it was Pollock. The package says crab meat, ingredients say Pollock. Just another example of the package saying one thing and the ingredients saying something else.

WHAT A GREAT PICTURE, OUR EARTH. SO MANY PEOPLE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT AND DESTROY THE WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT IT. YOU KNOW I END EVERY POST IN THIS FORM OR ANOTHER, JUST TO LET YOU KNOW I AM TRULY THANKFUL FOR YOU BEING HERE AND SHARING THIS JOURNEY WITH ME. I NEVER THOUGHT IN A MILLION YEARS ANYONE WOULD WANT TO SHARE WITH ME THIS SITE ON THE DANGERS OF TOXIC CHEMICALS IN OUR FOODS AND THE PATH TO FREEDOM FROM THE WRONGS BY THE FDA AND THE FOOD COMPANIES IN THIS VAST WORLD.

I KNOW I WILL NEVER GET TO TRAVEL THE WORLD OR BE A KING OR PRESIDENT OF THE GREAT NATIONS OUT THERE. I CAN BRING US ALL TOGETHER AS ONE VOICE FOR CHANGE IN THE HARMFUL AND DEADLY CHEMICALS IN OUR FOODS.

REGUARDLESS OF YOUR RELIGION OR BACKGROUND, WE ALL SHARE ONE THING IN COMMON. WE ALL LIKE TO EAT AND FOR THE MOST OF US WE LOVE TO BE HEALTHLY AND SHOW OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO STAND UP AND FIGHT, EVEN WHEN IT LOOKS GRIM. ONE OF MY FRIENDS WAS DIAGONOSED WITH STAGE 3 BREAST CANCER AROUND 15 YEARS AGO AND SHE WAS GIVEN TREATMENT AND HAD ABOUT A YEAR TO LIVE WITH TREATMENT AND 6 MONTHS WITHOUT IT. SHE IS STILL ALIVE AND THAT WAS 15 YEARS AGO.

YOU SEE NO MATTER WHAT YOUR STRUGGLE OR ISSUE YOU HAVE, NEVER GIVE UP AND WITH THE CHEMICALS IN OUR FOODS IS THE SAME WAY. WE CAN’T EVER STOP FIGHTING FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE IN, THEN WHEN IT’S ALL DONE AND THE DUST CLEARS, WE WILL KNOW WE STOOD FOR SOMETHING AND WE DID IT TOGETHER AS ONE VOICE FOR CHANGE IN THE CHEMICALS IN OUR FOODS/DRINKS. HAVE A GREAT NIGHT/DAY AND I’LL SEE YOU TOMORROW NIGHT.

 

Healthy Choice For Living

I was going to post about toxic chemicals in our foods tonight. I was just getting some of my work done for college and we were in discussion about honesty and respecting people and how without me first showing respect how would I ever gain respect from anyone. So in thinking about respect and always getting on here letting you know about the toxic chemicals in our foods and showing you different items that causes your body harm, why not get on here tonight and help you with the healthy options and let you in on my life style and a bit more about me as a person overall and how I went from eating and drinking everything and taking 11 different kinds of subscribed medications- to a whole new me.

Yeah I still get depressed and feel terrible sometimes, but that’s life (in my view). Just the difference now is, it doesn’t stick around very long, like it used to. I can move past the emotions and I want anyone to know that feels the same as I did, that I’m here to help. The whole nature of eating is what? Some people are like I was for a long time, they just eat when they feel good, bad or depressed.

I know food for most part of my life was comfort food. My dad died when I was around 9 and my stepdad died when I was 16 and my other stepdad died when I was 31 and all my aunts and uncles and grandmother and grandfather were all deceased, before I could ever know them too much when I was younger. My mom died last year and as you already know from my past post she was my everything, my world.

For my whole life I’ve taken medicines for PTSD and I developed a panic disorder called Panic attacks with agoraphobia. That’s the bad one were you are confined to your house. For me it was one room in my house. Every time I would even step outside my front door I was scared for my life.

I’ve eaten junk foods my whole life and I made excuses as to why I had to have them. My life hasn’t been the worst I’ve seen and for sure not the best. Through all the despair I’ve seen in my life, with best friends dying in car wrecks to my parents dying throughout my whole life and other emotional things that happened throughout my childhood and adulthood. I choose to find toxic junk food to comfort me.

I thought after my mom died, that was it that I couldn’t do this anymore. I believe in God and regularly sing and worship him at my home with my old karaoke machine. I have never blamed God for anything and I take it up as, this is life that people die and we have to be strong in faith. I am not in any way asking you to go with my belief, I’m just sharing mine with you, my friends.

Toxic foods have been a part of my life for so long and I wanted you to have the knowledge as to why they were, because when everyone around me leaves me or turns their back on me I knew food never would. I know that may sound a bit weird, but that’s how I felt. With my mom dying, that could have gone a dark path or a light path. Everyone around me, I’m sure thought I would just end it all and be done with the struggle.

I wasn’t ever going to do that, I knew my mom would want me to fight and keep going, I just didn’t know at the time it would be here with you, doing this. Another thing I learned after my mom died, that when I owned up to my mistakes in life and blamed Knowone but myself, it got a lot better. I used to blame everyone for everything that ever happened to me. I would say (I’m fat because of being poor or I eat too much because knowone respects me) I used to make up so much stuff, to blame other people for my failures and my past mistakes, that all changed when mom died.

A piece of my soul died on August 1st 2017 and I know I will never get that back, but I can move on and make my mom proud of me through helping other people, only when I help myself get to were I need to be emotionally, So as most of you know I got into college and I’m so far for the last 7 months I’ve been averaging 3.787 GPA in class. I never thought I would ever do that, after I quit school in the 11th grade, I did get my GED in 2003.

Toxic foods has been my life and I will fight for this cause until my breath ends on this earth. I wanted to change my whole outlook on life after my mother died and the first thing was to admit my faults and move past them. Also forgive my ex. girlfriend of leaving me 14 days after my mother passes away. I forgave her and all the other people that have let me down in life. You have to forgive and move past people letting you down, I promise you will feel better. I also forgave my brother and my sister for not taking me to see my mom before she died, my truck is an old 4×4 and I couldn’t make it very far were mom was at and they had nice new cars and I remember them telling me they would take me up their, but couldn’t bring me back home.

Three days after that my mom died. I’m getting emotional now thinking about how I couldn’t get to her, the one person that was always there for me and I couldn’t be there for her on her deathbed. That was a hard one for me to let go, but I did. I will get on with the health side of my post. I wanted to show you the personal side of why I will fight for this and no amount of money in the world will ever buy my silence. This site and you are worth more to me than any dollar sign.

 

Who here drinks smoothies? I love them. I drink one every morning when I get up, yes I still have coffee but I love smoothies. I mix 2 bananas with 3 strawberries and 1 whole orange. I put almond milk in it and blend it together with crushed ice and that’s so good. That’s helped me so much with my low blood sugar with the natural sugars in the fruits and the vitamins, it’s just great. I’ll make sure on Tuesdays and Saturdays I drink 1 table spoon apple cider vinegar and 1 table spoon of honey in an 8 ounce glass of warm water. If your diabetic, my mom hated drinking water and knew she had to. Walmart sells these drinks called Sam’s choice clear American, with tins of different flavors.

Yes it has artificial flavoring and sweeteners, The sweeteners have chemicals in them that’s not the best choice for you, If you can’t have sugar and want something completely healthy without any harmful additives, drink 1 tbl spoon honey in 8 to 12 oz glass of warm or cold water. Honey is the best natural choice for any additive in water.

Toxic foods don’t have to be a choice for you, we can get through this together and without the chemicals. You will feel so much better and I bet your health will improve drastically. I’m not a doctor and can only let you know what has worked for me, to a lot of people I was a lost cause, until I understood what I needed to do to improve my life and now this site is here to help you (my friends) improve yours.

 

How many times have we seen this in a market, just to walk past all these fresh fruit and vegetables, just to buy some junk food (that’s high in salts and calories) to take home and prepare for dinner. It’s happened to me so many times, The layout is right in front of me and I walk right past, I may say that’s a great layout. Or those fruits look great, then go get a box of cakes or some processed pack of prepared meat product.

I always said the fruit was too high or why would I buy some fruit, when I could have A nice pre-made chicken patty with some processed mashed potatoes. I know what you are feeling, the thing about this site and you (my friends) I’ve been there, I can help you get past the temptations and the urges to eating the junk and go for great tasting healthy products that will change your life and your families lives. I think it’s just easier to give in and eat something quick or something that tastes great and not think about what’s in the food. I know I’ve been thereand it’s not easy. But very possible to do.

I will always do what I can to help you and show you how I changed and Give examples as to how and what I’ve done to change my life. I was in the dollar store the other day and someone just joined this site yesterday and This person always talks about the chemicals in the foods and when I go to the store. They already know I’m in there buying stuff for this site. I just wanted to mention that about them and I’m thankful they are here and thankful for all the other subscribers here for joining me on this journey to a better lifestyle without toxic foods in our lives.

Talking on the points of eating healthy, I’m sure you all know there are so many people on the internet trying to make a dollar off someone subscribes to their site. I’ve an affiliation with amazon, I also post links to amazon for you to see healthy options to the toxic foods we eat. In know way do you ever have to tap on the link or will my stance with you ever change either way. I love this site and I respect you and your values to help your family live better lives with better options to eat better. I just wanted to add that about the amazon links.

Amazon is a great place to shop, I’m a prime member and I pay monthly instead of yearly and everything I order through amazon, it’s 2 day shipping. You can’t beat 2 day shipping. Amazon accounts are free other than paying for 2 day shipping rates. It’s $119 a year for 2 day shipping or like $18 a month or lower. I wanted to add this paragraph about amazon, because I didn’t want you to think I was talking bad about them, because I wasn’t. I wanted you to know This site will be the same and the values of this site will be the same either way with the amazon links.

Who loves this picture? Hamburgers are great and I love the thick fries with them, sometimes the thin ones. Who would rather go out to eat verses grilling out? For me grilling out is best, the smells of the meats smoking over an open grill or smoking them in a smoker. Talking about it, makes me want to grill out right now and it’s nighttime here. I will let you know how I prepare the meats and what I buy. Let’s face it, yeah I eat healthy now, I’m still gonna have my meats. Just a healthy way to prepare them now. From the preparation to the sauce and bread I used to cook my favorite meals, (cheeseburger and fries).

This is for any hamburger meat you buy in the stores everywhere, try this before you grill. I pat my burger out into patties and then boil them until the formation of the burger holds its shape and then I grill them. When you do that It help to control the formation of bacteria and helps keep the juices in and the salts out. I promise you will love them. The meats, to me taste so much juicier and holds together better on the grill. I also splash fresh lemon ove the burger after it hits the grill. Something about my moms old recipe for burgers I’ve carried on into my adult life. I use natural wheat bread for the buns.

I do something a bit out of the box. I cut the whole wheat bread to round circles to form bread for the hamburger, I use the hamburger cutter to form the bread and then toast it in my oven. Then add all the healthy options you want and your grilled burger will look and taste great. I hope this helps a little in the way you can prepare your burgers for the same grilled taste without all the germs and bacteria with it.

 

I know I could go on and on about healthier ways to eat and I promise I will get to it in later posts. Tomorrow I will get back to the unhealthy choices in our lives, starting with Toaster pastries. I hope you all have a great night and always remember I’ve got your back and you never have to fear the toxic foods in your lives. We can fight them together and live our lives a little better with the understanding of what we are eating and drinking with toxic chemicals. We have a long way to go, but I’m here to stay and I hope you take this journey with me, to show the world that we stand together in our voice for change in the dangers we face from the everyday. toxic chemicals.

Here’s A great Recipe book for making smoothies.
