What Coconut Oil Can Do For You :
Coconut oil has many health benefits for your hair and skin , digestive system, and also our immune systems. Many people throughout the world are discovering the benefits of this tropical oil and are including it in their daily routines. It is gaining in popularity and most people can find at least one or two things that will benefit positively
from its use.
The oil of coconut is made by pressing the fat from the white “meat” inside of the nut. Approximately 84 % of its calories come from saturated fat. Butter has approximately 63 % of its calories from saturated fat and olive oil has about 14 %. Butter, lard and coconut oil are solid at room temperature and all have a relatively long shelf life. They can also withstand high cooking temperatures. Coconut gets a bad reputation because of the fat content, however looking at it closer, we can see that it has some very good qualities to justify its use.
Coconut oil’s saturated fat is made up of medium-chain triglycerides. Many researchers say that our bodies process the medium-chain triglycerides differently than the longer-chain fats that you will find in liquid vegetable oils, dairy and fatty meats. The combination of fatty acids can have positive effects on health. People may experience, fat loss, improved skin appearance, and better brain function, with the addition of coconut oil to their diets. Research data suggests that saturated fats are harmless to the human body. It has been suggested that the artery clogging theories were false.
Coconut oil can increase energy and help burn fat. The medium-chain triglycerides in the oil can increase energy as much as 5 %, which in turn can lead to the potential of significant weight loss over the long term. Many believe that obesity comes down to just calories, but it is disputed that the sources of those calories is just as important. Different food can affect us in different ways, so in reality , a calorie is NOT just a calorie.
Coconuts contain Lauric Acid, and that substance has the ability to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi . It can also keep infection away. About 50 % of the fatty acids in coconut oil is Lauric Acid. Once coconut oil is digested , it forms a monoglyceride called monolaurin. Lauric acid and monolaurin are both able to kill harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. Coconut oil has been known to kill the Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria, which can be a very dangerous pathogen. It can also kill the yeast Candida Albicans, which is a very common source of yeast type infections in humans.
Coconut oil strengthens our immune systems because it contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid. All contain antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. When the human body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, it helps us deal with viruses and bacteria that can cause disease and illnesses.
Coconut oil will also improve digestion, because it is an oil . By improving the digestive system , it can prevent digestion-related problems, including irritable bowel syndrome. The antimicrobial properties of the saturated fats in the oil help combat fungi, bacteria and parasites , which can give us indigestion. Coconut oil can also help in the absorption of nutrients such as minerals, vitamins and amino acids.
Many people enjoy the benefits of coconut oil in their skin care routines. It is an excellent massage oil and a fantastic moisturizer for all types of skin. It does not produce adverse side effects and is a safe solution to dryness and flaking of skin. It can also delay the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin, that is a result of the aging process.
With all of these benefits, it would be a good idea to give coconut oil a try . Be sure to look for the cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil . This just means how it was processed . In this type the least amount of processing has been done to give you a pure product with full flavor and no preservatives. Everyone can benefit from at least one of coconut oil’s treatments . You can buy it online , in major retail outlet stores and grocery chains. Try it today and see how it can make your skin and health better !
The Thing About God’s Love
I have heard time and time again , the misconception that Christians are arrogant and judgemental. I don’t agree of course. I think perhaps we are misunderstood.Read more...
Please do not mistake the joy of having Jesus Christ in your heart for arrogance. Please don’t mistake the discipline and lifestyle we try to lead in our heavenly Father’s name as judgemental. The truth is we want to share this joy with everyone with all of our hearts. God loves at all times and everything he does is loving. There is never a second of any day that we are not loved by him. God’s love changes everything, and people who have not loved him or have turned away from him , can come to know his love in a single moment. He will always be there for us. Our heavenly Father forgives us , loves us and brings us close to him and one cannot help but change in our hearts from this beautiful relationship. So the confidence you see in a Christian is knowing that they are loved and knowing they are accepted by God. It is such joy , it is such peace and it is certainly something we want to share. Arrogance and confidence are two different things. Christians are confident in their love for God and in their promise of salvation , if they live a life in Christ. It is a fact !
We also struggle like everyone else , and things happen to us as well. How we get through these times is because of God’s love and because of our faith . God loved this world so much that he gave his only son’s life for our sins. The blood of Jesus was shed , so that we might all be saved. He wants us all to be with him forever. Christians are constantly learning and constantly talking to God. In fact it feels as if we are missing something when we cannot have time alone with him, or when we do not pray . We know that he hears us and is always with us wherever we go .
In this world today, I think God wants us to strengthen the church . He wants us to get back to the only book he left for us. The bible has everything in it we need to live this life on earth . God has not changed what he expects from us, nor has he stopped wanting us to honor the commandments. But over time , we have tried to change the rules ourselves. It is time to return to the bible, reading it cover to cover and to return to the values and morals that he has always wanted for us. It is time to return to him with all of our hearts. If we put him first and do all things in his name , the blessings will flow. .When we live this way , it makes our Father in Heaven very happy. If we stay true to the words he has written, we are better able to refuse the temptations that Satan gives to us in our minds , and turn our backs on the things he tries to get us to do. If we stay true to God, it is very easy to tell Satan , NO. When we struggle , if we are close to God, all we have to do is ask him for his guidance and help. Having God close to us and in our hearts, will keep us centered and in line with what he wants for us . It will bring us closer to the plan that he has for us on this earth . We have to be engaged with him and open our hearts completely, or we cannot hear the things he is saying to us. We cannot rationalize doing the wrong thing and ever receive his full blessings. Like a father and his child , he will expect us to keep his word.
I am hungry to know him better and eager to serve. This year will be filled with some glorious changes. I understand very much that what has taken place on this earth in my lifetime. There has been increasingly overpowering acts of sin and all around us , we can find evidence of Satan’s influence. I was not fully aware, but it has been revealed to all of us because of God’s grace. I have been quiet for so long, afraid to seek my heart, because I allowed the dark side to push me back. I loved God, but was tired of fighting for everything and tired of being bullied by the other side. This will no longer be the case. He never gives up on us ,and waits for us with open arms. It is pure forgiveness. I hope that all Christians will fully engage this year, and get close to our Father . I think that there are so many people who hunger for him . I know that a life on this earth without him , ends without ever knowing your full potential in his glory . He offers salvation to all of us and the option will be there to join him forever through salvation, if you take him fully into your heart. The option will remain there for anyone to be with him and he waits patiently for us to come to him . He will be returning one day for his church and for those who have accepted him as their Lord and Savior. We need to be still and listen, and to take more time with him. He wants us to pray with our families and invite him all the way into our homes. He wants us to fully engage. I am all in , and I hope that you will be too. We will stumble, we may fall, but God will be there for us to pick us up and dust us off and encourage us even more. He heard the cries of his children and came to help us with this election. I don’t hear anyone in the media saying this, but I know it in my heart to be true. The media for the most part has been taken over by the dark side. Their primary goal is to confuse and to separate all of us from one another. Satan can work his black magic on anyone who is away from God, and he will get into the minds of the weak and turn them from God. He promises so much , but this deal with him , will leave you alone and brokenhearted. The feeling you will get when you reach out to God and give him your heart will leave you wondering how you made it this far without him. Once you know him, you will never want to leave . He will be there for you , he will comfort you and he will lead you to the light each and every day. We are not alone, and he wants us to be with him . It is worth at least having a conversation with him. You could ask him anything , and he will be listening . If you sit still and listen , you might just get the answer that he has for you, because he has the master plan and knows what is best for us. It is in understanding this amazing love and loving one another in the way that he loves us, we will find true peace among each other. We were not designed to hate, and that is why it feels so unsettled right now. It will get better , but it will take some time. Regardless, the change is necessary. We have to center ourselves once again in goodness and make things better for everyone. Out of the darkness , there will be light . We are all welcomed into that light . God’s love is amazing, it really is.
Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Rangers hockey game
Fighting amongst ourselves has been initiated by a very dark source. It thrives on chaos and makes us weak. It seeks to divide. We are designed to LOVE. If we let this dark force take over , we will not survive as a nation. Instead we have to rise up together and refuse this evil from our lives , from our hearts and work towards the civility we are capable of. If we let the darkness win, we will not have a chance at all .. for anything .
Television, Movies and Music:
I have postponed choosing something to review for the time being. To be honest, I am not happy with the behavior that I have witnessed coming from many of the so called A-List actors. I am boycotting for now , any shows with these disrespectful humans displaying their hatred for all the world , and my children most importantly to see. It is not because of political affiliation , as much as it is about total disrespect and an inherent evil behavior that seems to be the norm. Read more...
I will be searching for some Christian based shows and movies to review for the time being and sharing the truth that is revealed . It is my belief that all this screeching , is a smoke screen for some very , very disturbing behavior. I pray that these people will come to their senses and understand that when you sell your soul to Satan, the deal most likely will go South . And in this case , south means where it is very .. very hot. No fame or fortune or material wealth on this earth can ever take the place of life everlasting with our heavenly Father. Satan makes deals he cannot keep and he thrives on the chaos and hatred. So we rise up and choose to say NO MORE to all of this globalist nonsense.. knowing that it is a mask for the end time rule of Satan as written in the book of Revelations . Pray for President Trump and his protection , the protection of his family and the also the safety of all those in his administration. Pray that the efforts of the enemy will come back to them in their own laps and that all truth will be revealed. Then pray for the lost souls to find their way to Jesus. It is the only way.
Welcome to my new online web magazine page! I am excited to share with you a lot of different things that
can give you all some positive perspective on your lives.Read more...
We will make mistakes together, share our experiences and connect in ways that will enhance our lives. I cannot wait to get started on this fantastic and highly anticipated project. Please email me with questions or ideas for topics and I will answer each and every one of you to the best of my ability. I will also have a quirky advice column, Dear Red, and I will answer your questions with some advice and humor.
Let’s be honest, we all learn that it is much easier to be up front and truthful in life. Yes, it can lead to some uncomfortable situations, but all in all the truth seems to prevail. I have become a non “BS” if you will, sort of person. This does not include an open ticket to hurting people’s feelings. However, being honest and not over extending myself or committing myself to things I cannot possibly accomplish, makes life much easier! There isn’t any resentment, and there seems to be more enjoyment in the day. I have always been good with communication, but I was not always good at saying “no” when necessary. Saying “no” is not a bad thing… it is just that nobody wants to admit to this. You are going to hear that a lot. If I can show you at least one good thing on my page. I want you to take back your lives and live each day in harmony with your true soul. When you relax the expectations and reduce the stress, you will be surprised how things seem to slowly work themselves into place. Maybe swimming against the current, and having nothing go smoothly, is a good indication that you are in need of some change. So let’s try from day one to be honest with ourselves and each other as we look into every day issues that we all experience. There is no amount of money or social status that prevents a person from the bumps and bruises of every day life. So in saying that, we are all connected in some way. No pretending, let your hair “down” and let’s find a way to get through this one day at time. We might just end up learning something together and coming closer to our true selves!!
April 20, 2017
My list for this week ! Things I aspire to accomplish! Hope your week is fabulous, tooClick Here to read my list...
- This week , I will resist the urge to eat too much sugar. It is an addiction. I have a great deal of difficulty saying no to sugar. I am working on it… lol
- I am going to try to commit myself to learning more and more about the Bible with every opportunity I can . I am hoping to get closer to God in the immediate future. I am so thankful that he has stepped in to help us out of this mess.
- I will give time every day to God. I think that it is time to go back to the word of God. Period.
- I will try to resist the urge to act like a screaming little girl when cleaning the pool. the skimmer basket hold all osrts of creepy things.. and I cannot bear to stick my hand down into it.. uughh… so gross.
- I am still folding the laundry … uughh… it is so unfair… there is so much of it…. hahahahhaha
- I will remain semi- committed to working out. The benefits are numerous, but mostly I feel so much better. I want to be strong and active for my kids and grandkids. I realize there is no way to keep it all from going “south”, I accept that, but I am not going to contribute to the process. Age is a number, and beauty is from within. Thankful I can still move around… and everything is not clicking and crunching… hahahahhaha.. well most everything…
- I will remember each day that there is so much to be thankful for.. something…there is always something to be thankful for.
- I will make some more time to paint with my daughter . It is a quiet time for us, but it is special. We both love rainy days and we both love painting. She is my mini-me. In fact , we have a date to paint this weekend.. so excited.. XOXO
- I will continue to boycott the news for obvious reasons. It is such a joke. We need a whole new media group in this country . Patience, Kimberly. I have also discovered the Cooking Channel. I think I may have a shot to be on on The Worst Cooks in America… I am not sure if that is something to be proud of or not.. LOL
- I remain dedicated in my quest to become a better person. I will let go of what is toxic and strengthen what gives me joy. I will dance and be silly with my children and cherish this time with them. I don’t want them to grow up, but I know they will. If I do one thing right with all of them, I hope they know they were loved. I will also pray for my country and its newly elected President. I think we just need a lot of prayer.
Stay Fabulous! XOXOXO
