Are you afraid of … BUTTER


Butter is, let’s face it, delicious. Not just because I have a post how to make it at home

If you need to butter someone…

but because there is so much fear out there of butter. Can you actually believe that butter is good for you. Why?

Why is butter good for you?

1. It is Filled with Immune-Boosting Vitamins

Butter is a source of vitamins A, D, K and E. It’s an especially rich source of Vitamin A in the form that is easiest for our bodies to use.

1TBSP of butter = 7 percent and 2 percent of your daily values of vitamins A and D.

2. It May Prevent Tooth Decay

Certain fat-soluble vitamins – including calcium and vitamins A, D and K and may help fight cavities and even reverse tooth decay, according to research

3. Helps absorption of vitamins and minerals from vegetables
When butter is used in cooking with vegetables, it helps our bodies process and use the water soluble vitamins and minerals found in the veg.

4. Can help protect against cancer

Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been tied to tumor reduction in colorectal cancer and may even help fight breast cancer,
CLA is only found in butter from grass-fed cows is attributed to having anti-cancer properties
as well as preventing weight gain.

5. Trace Minerals
Butter is also a source of minerals that are required only in tiny quantities by our bodies.
These include manganese, zinc, chromium & iodine.

So, can you eat homemade butter?

Yes, you can. When fat comes from natural sources, and we don’t combine it with too many refined carbohydrates, we have no reason to fear it.

Just remember one thing, eat in moderation!

So, are you still scared of our little yellow, fatty butter? Of course not.

You know that living in fear is not life so start your day, today, by making my homemade butter. (click on the link below)

A Magic Brew – My Italian Lover as the Parsley Tea

I heard so many times:”Parsley is a miracle! It helps you drop the pounds. ”

Whaaat? Parsley suppose to help you drop the pounds? Is that true?

I want to believe in miracle and one of my favorite quote is  “Always believe that something wonderful will happen”.

So,  I went to the local organic store and as soon as my eyes caught him I whisper:

“Hello my Italian lover known to the world as the Italian parsley.I am going to test you and drink you because I want  to lose 5 lbs.”

So, I paid for my lover (only $2.99) and I brought him to my home. Soon I will be ready for my vicious testing….

On a serious note are there any benefits of parsley other than to lose a few pounds ?

Parsley contains high amounts of potassium and vitamin A, calcium, vitamin C and phosphorus.

It is an excellent ally in the fight against urinary problems, kidney disease, a strong diuretic and very rich source of cancer-fighting antioxidants.

So spending $2.99 was well wort it. Don’t you think?

My recipe is the following:

Boil 4 cups of water.(1L)

You want to lose weight – DRINK WATER

Yes, I know this blog is about baking, cookies, cakes, chocolate…. But this blog is also about health, taking care of yourself and
your body. I always look for different ways that I can improve my life, my health and my body.
And for today my Eureka is “WATER”.
So, if you never heard you can learn now, you can lose weight by drinking H2O or WATER.
Some other benefits are:
1. Energize us
2. Protect our joints
3. Keeps our kidneys working
4. Prevent headaches
5. Can improve mood
6. Great for your skin
…and so much more…
The amount of water you need to drink will depend on your current weight.
Obviously a woman of 125 pounds does not need to drink as much as a woman who is 200 pounds.
Here’s how much water your body requires to lose weight based on your weight.
132 lbs or 60 kg you need to drink 2L of water (8 cups)
143 lbs or 65 kg you need to drink 2.1L of water
154 lbs or 70 kg you need to drink 2.3L of water
165 lbs or 75 kg you need to drink 2.5L of water
176 lbs or 80 kg you need to drink 2.6L of water
187 lbs or 85 kg you need to drink 2.8L of water
198 lbs or 90 kg you need to drink 3L (12 cups)
209 lbs or 95 kg you need to drink 3.2l
220 lbs or 100 kg you need to drink 3.3l

….and so on…
As always I would love to know what you think about this.
