(Picture From Flickr: infilmity)

I recently came across an article that listed some of the worst foods you should never eat, and it got me thinking that maybe I should do a post about this on my blog.  I have the list of  foods that you should NEVER eat below.

These are my own opinions that I formed by reading a lot of studies for myself.

1) Microwave Popcorn: Never eat this stuff people no matter how temping it is. The health effects that microwave popcorn is causing is out of this world.

How To Make Homemade Vitamin C From Lemons!

Make your own homemade Vitamin C at home, it’s far better than any of the store bought Vitamin C on the shelves!

So, everyone knows that oranges, lemons and many other fruits are loaded with Vitamin C, but did you know that you can make your own homemade Vitamin C supplements from your used lemons and oranges? I recently came across a website that had a fabulous article on how to make your own Vitamin C from lemons. I though this was a fantastic idea since I love making homemade remedies and I just happened to have a whole bunch of lemons for a lemon pie I planned to bake. The main reason why you’d want to do this, is that you don’t always have lemons, or oranges on hand, but if you dehydrate the peals, you can make a jar of your own Vitamin C supplements for daily use.

The Cherries Are Almost Ready!

I’m so excited the cherries are almost ready! =-)

I have two big cherry trees in my backyard and every year (usually in the dead of Winter) I start dreaming about eating fresh picked cherries from my cherry trees.

These cherries will be perfect in about a week.

Here is a full view of one of my cherry trees. Don’t mind the pie plates LOL.. I have to hang pie plates in the trees to keep the darn Black Birds and Robins from eating all my cherries. They really like them too. 😉

Top Ten Worst Sources Of Aspartame!

If you are drinking diet sodas, sugar free gum, than chances are you are consuming Aspartame. Aspartame is a synthetic chemical combination which is comprised of approximately 50% phenylalanine, 40% aspartic acid, and 10% methanol.

These sweeteners contain Aspartame: NutraSweet, Equal, Sweet One and Spoonful. Aspartame is found in thousands of foods, drinks, candy, drinking powders, cereals, cooking sauces and in almost every chewing gum out there (even those that are ALREADY sweetened with SUGAR! – WHY?????).
Alternative sweeteners I use to sweeten my favorite foods.

Two natural sugar-free alternative sweeteners are Xylitol, and Brazilian Stevia Leaf (Not Truvia)...
