Vitamin World Part 2

Here are the 2 water soluble vitamins.

Here are the 2 water soluble vitamin.

This is part 2 of the Vitamin World post part 1 I just made. In post number one, it gave all the food sources and definitions of the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K. In this post, I will be talking about the water soluble vitamins, B and C.

 

Water Soluble Vitamins

  1. Vitamin B// This vitamin helps to create red blood cells. You can find this vitamin source in proteins like fish, poultry, meat, eggs, dairy, leafy green vegetables, beans, and peas.
  2. Vitamin C//This vitamin helps to repair and regenerate tissues, protect against heart disease, and aid in the absorption of iron. You can find vitamin C in fruits (especially citrus) and vegetables contain vitamin C. Good sources include: apples, asparagus, berries, broccoli, cabbage, melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon), cauliflower, citrus fruits (lemons, limes, oranges), kiwi, fortified foods (breads, grains, cereal), dark leafy greens (kale, spinach), peppers (especially red bell peppers, which have among the highest per-serving vitamin C content), potatoes, and tomatoes.

 

This is all for the water soluble vitamins. By the way, water soluble means they dissolve in water.

 

Peace.Love!

Vitamin World Part 1

Here are some foods (not all of them) that will provide you with your essential nutrients.

Here are some foods (not all of them) that will provide you with each vitamin.

Vitamin World Part 1

On the ingredients list of all food products you may be used to seeing vitamin A, vitamin D, without having any idea what that really means. Well, I’m here to explain vitamins in a way that’s more easy to understand. Here are all the vitamins, what they are, and how you can get them by eating these certain foods. I will review the fat soluble vitamins on this part 1 and the rest, which are the water soluble, on the part 2 of this post.

 

There are 13 essential vitamins that are for humans and needed for humans to function at tip top shape.

 

Fat Soluble vs. Water Soluble

There are 4 fat soluble vitamins and 9 water soluble vitamins. Fat soluble means they only are digested in fat. They are stored in the body’s fat tissues. Water soluble vitamins must be replenished regularly because they are disposed in your urine. Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver.

 

Fat Soluble Vitamins

Since there are only 4 of these, let’s review these first.

  1. Vitamin A// Naturally present in many foods. It is important for normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction. Vitamin A also helps the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly. You can get vitamin A from salmon, green leafy vegetables, broccoli, carrots, squash, apricots, mango, dairy, and fortified (fortified means they added the nutrients back during processing the product) breakfast cereals.

  2. Vitamin D// Vitamin D is important for good overall health and strong and healthy bones. It’s also an important factor in making sure your muscles, heart, lungs and brain work well and that your body can fight infection. You will find vitamin D in sunlight, dairy, salmon, and mushrooms. Many people (including my mother and I) have to take vitamin D tablets because it’s hard to get enough vitamin D. Get your vitamin D levels checked by your doctor, just to make sure and be aware of your vitamin D levels.

  3. Vitamin E// It is an antioxidant that protects cells from damage done by free radicals. You can find Vitamin E in many foods including vegetable oils, nuts, green vegetables, breakfast cereals, and fruit juices among many others.

  4. Vitamin K//Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that is most well known for the important role it plays in blood clotting.Vitamin K is also absolutely essential to building strong bones, preventing heart disease, and crucial part ofother bodily processes. In fact, vitamin K is sometimes referred to as “the forgotten vitamin” because its major benefits are often overlooked. You will find vitamin K in green leafy vegetables, chili powder, asparagus, and olive oil among many others.

Vegan Lunchbox

This is an example of a vegan lunchbox meal.

Vegan Lunchbox

The picture above is an example of a vegan lunchbox. There are thousands of combinations one can create with vegan ingredients.

 

Kale Chips Ingredients

  1. Get a knife and cute the kale into bite size pieces
  2. Put them in a salad spinner or a bowl and rinse them off with running water
  3. Drizzle the kale with olive oil and seasoning salt or regular salt
  4. Bake at 350 until edges brown but not burnt
  5. It should take about 10 to 15 minutes

 

Chopped Avocado w/ Olive Oil & Spices 

  1. Cut the avocado up into desired pieces
  2. Drizzle olive oil, salt, garlic powder
  3. Drizzle lime juice
  4. ((I like to add chili powder on to mine))

 

Vegetable Wrap 

  1. Gather desired vegetables that you want in your wrap
  2. Get a tortilla and cook it for about 2 minutes on each side
  3. Put the chopped desired vegetables down the middle of the tortilla
  4. Put this (the tortilla with the vegetables on it) onto the skillet and let them cook together for about 2 minutes. Watch, don’t burn anything!
  5. Then just fold it up and you’ve got yourself a vegetable wrap
  6. Add celery as an extra snack that’s a vegetable

 

Nuts 

Nuts are really good for you and they provide one with protein as well as lots of energy. I would recommend brazil nuts and almonds.

 

Like I said before, this is just an example to give others an idea of what they can put in a vegan lunchbox. I would take this to lunch! I’ll be updating with more posts of different vegan lunch boxes in days to come. Thanks for reading!

 

 

Peace & Love

Vegan Children’s Food

Start the kids eating vegan early so it's all they know!

Start the kids eating vegan early so it’s all they know!

Vegan Children’s Food

I do not have children yet, but I know there are a lot of people that have already started a family. Children can be vegan too! They just have to stick to a plant based diet. For children, the main points are to make the food taste decently good, make it fun if possible, and most importantly, make it their only option.

 

Here are some ideas for kids vegan breakfast…

  • Oatmeal w/ berries
  • Toast w/ vegan butter
  • Pancakes
  • Waffles
  • Grits
  • Almond Milk
  • Oranje Juice
  • Hashbrowns
  • Cereal

 

Kids vegan lunch…

  • Assorted chopped whole fruits
  • Peanut butter & Jelly sandwiches
  • Water
  • Vegetable wrap
  • Salad
  • Assorted vegetables
  • Chopped avocado
  • Teddy Grahams (Yes, these are vegan!)

 

Kids vegan dinner…

  • Vegetable pizza
  • Pastas
  • Vegetables
  • Potatoes
  • Quesadillas
  • Guacamole
  • Salad

 

Why Should Kids Go Vegan?

It’s been documented that children that are vegan avoid obesity, and stay fit. They will also have a nutritious diet that will follow them into later years. Which means they would also avoid obesity and illness when they get older.

 

These are just a few ideas. I will continuously update this post with the more ideas I get for vegan children’s food.

 

 

As always, peace and love!

America’s Most Dangerous Foods

americasmostdangerousheader

Unbeknownst to many, there are actually many foods that the average citizen eats because they have no idea how bad it is to their health. Maybe it’s even you. Well, I’m here to let you in on what the America’s most dangerous foods are so that you know what you’re putting in your body.

 

America’s Most Dangerous Foods

  1. Anything with dyes and artificial flavors, such as red 40, yellow 5, yellow 6, and blue 2 (Banned in Norway and Austria)
  2. These are food you probably recognize but you probably should't be eating them.

    These are food you probably recognize but you probably should’t be eating them.

  3. Farm-Raised Salmon (Banned in Australia, New Zealand, and Russia)
  4. Genetically Engineered Papaya (Banned in the European Union)
  5. Meat and dairy
  6. Flame retardant in drinks, such as Mountain Dew, Sunkist, Powerade, Gatorade, Fanta, Fresca, and Squirt. (Banned in Europe and Japan)

The reason why these are the most dangerous foods is because they are banned in other countries and also because of the risks that come with eating the foods. The best thing you could do for your health is to adopt a plant based diet.

Cruelty Free Dish Wash Liquid

Seventh Generation dish liquid, natural

Cruelty Free Dish Wash Soap

I was so excited to try this dish liquid since it’s cruelty free. This cruelty free dish wash liquid did not disappoint. It lathers up real easily and even better than basic dish wash liquids that aren’t cruelty free. The brand I purchased was Seventh Generation, their Natural Dish Liquid.

 

Label

As you may be able to see in the photo, the label on this cruelty free dish wash liquid tells us a lot about the environment friendly aspect of the product. It has the USDA Certified Biobased Product label, it’s non toxic, it’s lavender flower and mint scent.

On the back of the label you may be able to see that it is a certified B product (meaning it’s better for workers, better for communities, and better for the environment), it explains that the scent is made from 100% essential oils and botanical extracts. Also it has the ingredients list as well as the cruelty free bunny label.

Recommend or No?

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. My boyfriend purchased this cruelty free dish wash liquid at Whole Foods for about $3. Like I said before, this dish liquid is perfect for your dish washing needs. It has a nice lather. The liquid is totally clear as you can see in the photo below.

Waist Trainer Progress

Here is a review of my waist trainer progress

Here is a review of my waist trainer progress

Waist Train Crazy 

Thanks to celebs like Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose, waist trainers have become the new booming must have beauty product. I know it looks painful and probably the last thing advised by any medical professional, but I couldn’t resist! In this post is my waist trainer progress. I’ve always wanted the hourglass figure, and working out the old fashioned way is fine but I was in dire need of some fast results I could actually see.

 

So how do I wear my waist trainer?

Waist trainer progress

This is at 4 months wearing the waist trainer off and on.

Also at 4 months wearing it off and on

Price

I bought this Camellias waist trainer in the camouflage print from amazon.com. It was $25.88.

This is the product photo of the same Camellias waist trainer that I have.

How Much or Long Do I Wear It?

I only wear the waist trainer when I’m working out.

Negatives

I hear that some celebrities wear a waist trainer 24/7. I would never do that and I wouldn’t advise it because it would seem that the waist trainer would begin to aggravate one’s organs since the waist trainer has to be a bit tight in order for that person to achieve the best results.

Progress

I can honestly say that although there hasn’t been much progress, there has been some. Keep it in mind that I don’t wear my waist trainer as much as others may. I wear mine for when I’m working out and I may wear it for a few hours around my apartment just because. I can tell that the waist trainer has indented my hips, creating the hourglass in a settle way. Which is awesome. If you are some one that wears the waist trainer or are thinking about purchasing one, don’t expect drastic hourglass in an hour type results. You have to wear the waist trainer consistently in order to see some results. I will continue to wear my waist trainer every so often. Discretion is advised!

 

I will keep everyone updated on my waist trainer progress to come! Thanks for reading, peace and love!

Vegan Cars

Vegan Cars

Vroom vroom! Did you ever think we would have vegan cars? Well guess again because they’re already here! The best way to utilize one’s vegan status is to be vegan in all parts of life. Here is a list of vegan cars I feel one will enjoy browsing through. Remember that sometimes the price of something is not cheap in order for it to save Earth. Just think of vegan cars as a high quality investment.

Model X Tesla

Tesla

Sadly, there is only one 100% true vegan car and it is the almighty Tesla luxury cars. Tesla offers a vegan option for automobiles with synthetic leather interiors for its model X Suv. They offer other vegan models as well. These cars are electric and so cool looking! I would love to take one for a spin. My boyfriend rode in one recently and said it was awesome. He told me it felt as if he was riding inside of a computer.
