The ‘Really Good’ Oil — Coconut Oil

It seems that I continually get into arguments with the AMA and ADA about their recommended cook with canola oil … grrrrrrrr. I won’t get on my rant-box here but in two shakes online you can easily find that canola oil [aka rapeseed oil] is highly toxic to your body when heated. There are also reports that 90% of the canola oil in the U.S. is GMO so that nails it shut for me right there.

My friends rely on me to do the research [and the math ] as to what is the best oil to use for everything including heat so here is what I recommend : cold-pressed, 100% organic coconut oil [my preference is that coming from the Phillipines]. The two brands that I recommend are : 1]]
2] Carrington Farms that I usually find the best price at Costco; or if you don’t have a membership or Costco near you then amazon also carries it :

Shar’s Stevia

I am asked about stevia at least once a week as more people decide that artificial sweeteners [aspartame, nutrasweet, equal, splenda, sucralose, high fructose corn syrup, truvia …] may be harming their family.

I’ve tried several brands of stevia plus checked prices at local grocery stores and health food stores to find one brand that doesn’t leave an after taste or offend my taste buds and the price is most economical. So here it is … Enjoy!
and thank you for joining a healthy, be-good-to-your-body journey.

Bluetooth Portable Keyboard

If you really want to take some speed notes, text and email, capture your ideas while they’re hot and have trouble typing on the ipad keyboard [I’m talking to us oldie-but-goodie, speed typers who can’t look at a keyboard and type a darn thing!], I found this bluetooth portable keyboard that I just love!  Runs on 4 AAA batteries [so always carry some charged up spares for those long meetings], drop it in my bag, b/t connect, and type away.  This little puppy works on my iPad, and Samsung Galaxy III android and Blackberry so I’m ready to rock!

Lady Boss ~ Getting Started Tip 1

If you’re serious about starting your own home-base business, yet ‘Sales’ is not your forte, consider that there are some companies who thrive on doing the sales part for you. And I don’t mean ‘strong-armed selling’ or ‘pushy salespeople’ stuff. But finding a team leader who is a match for you and your friends, someone who knows the products and services better than you do starting out, who listens to what you need and who makes you and your friends comfortable with the promoting piece.
Make sense?

If you want to see if you and I are a great team match, please contact me.

ipad stand

I have used several cover/stand options for my ipad and they just didn’t suit my needs — so I went with a very basic cover/stand for everyday carry protection and then at my home office, I use this great adjustable stand that I really like [works with my cover plus it folds up, weighs next to nothing, and travels well!] :
