Recently, I’ve started cooking with coconut oil—sautéing veggies, pan-searing fish, and cooking two-ingredient pancakes—it’s become a staple in my diet. Coconut oil not only tastes great, but it also has some pretty amazing healthy benefits.

Star fruit lines indicate it has anti-inflammatory properties #theway

Straight indicates anti-inflammation?

#readyourfood

That’s right, straight lines develop on fruits’s & vegetable’s when they posses anti-inflammatory properties. For example, the stem of apples, pears and oranges all indicate that these body defense mechanisms are present, such as is with the straight leaves of carrots, on the garlic and fennel, just to name a few.

Celery is not only straight, but it also has so many lines (hair like strands also indicate that fiber is present) which indicate that it is high in anti-inflammatory properties, plus its straight half cylindrical and sponge like quality of the inside of the celery indicates that it has calcium too (if you stack two celery sticks facing each other, stacked side by side, they form a bone like structure-complete with an opening down the center, where bone marrow would normally flow through).

The anti-inflammatory properties in celery is so high (indicated by the amount of straight lines so prominently growing on this vegetable), that I have completely stopped taking any naproxen, midol or ibuprofen for those painful times I normally would have in the past. Now when I begin to cramp up I just nosh on celery and instantly my pains subside.

If you don’t suffer from kidney problems, the star fruit is also high in anti-inflammatory properties, just look at them lines! However for those who do have issues with your kidney’s you’ll need to steer clear of the star-fruit.

So next time  you’re in need of anti-inflammatory properties in your diet, #readyourfruitsandvegetables by learning #theway and seek out those natural foods with lines in them. Your kidneys, liver and bank account will thank you (if they could) just remember that #starfruit is not good for those with kidney issues.

Release and be happy!

If you’re like most Americans, your closets are stuffed so tightly you can’t even get through your wardrobe without being frustrated with the lack of wiggle room. Many of you have so much stuff, that you can’t even find things, without cussing up a storm and wasting a minimum of 20 minutes.

Thankfully the era of less is more is upon us! So I dare you to take our #fashionablygreengivingchallenge the next time you find yourself searching aimlessly for that________.

Take the #fashionablygreengivingchallenge

To take the challenge, make it a point to put aside everything that you haven’t used in a month, when you come across it during your search. After you find the item you were frantically looking for, take a few minutes to gather up all the items you put to the side (the things you aren’t using or haven’t used in a long time) and place them in a bag, which you’ll then place in your trunk, to donate at your local charity thrift store, such as the Salvation Army chain of thrift stores. If you wish to, you can even schedule a truck from the Salvation Army, and they will come pick up your donation. Click the following link to schedule your donation pick up: Schedule a Salvation Army truck to pick up your donations.

Your space, life and emotional well being will thank you, if they could. Most importantly your community will thank you for helping to make a difference.

Imagine how much freer you will feel after unloading all that stuff that is blocking your way.
