WHAT IS ACTION AGAINST HUNGER-help save lives

I first heard of this charitable organization called Action Against Hunger while doing research for an article on Moon Balance. Moon Balance is a superfood powder mix sold in the US by YourSuper.com and distributed around the world. I was so emotionally moved that YourSuper donates a life-saving food bar to hungry children around the world for every mix sold through the website. To clarify that’s a 1:1 ratio. So I placed an order of my own to support the cause and started to recommend it to everybody. In the process, I decided I wanted to help and also learn more about what is Action Against Hunger.

INGREDIENTS IN HAND SANITIZER-are they safe?

It’s the topic of conversation lately and I’ve tried many of them. But are they safe?  We can answer that question when we know what ingredients in hand sanitizer.  Hand sanitizer was first introduced in 1966 in medical settings such as hospitals and healthcare offices.  And then popularized in the early 1990’s.  According to Pharmacy Today, 91% of children 0-5 yrs have been exposed by drinking or inhaling the product by mistake.  This is due to the appealing scent like apple, vanilla or citrus.  And children 6-12 yrs had consumed the product intentionally.  These products should always be used with caution and under the supervison of an adult.

WHAT IS ASHWAGANDHA FOR?

I’m so intrigued by this word Ashwagandha that I decided to do some research on it.  Pronounced ash-wa-gand-ha. It’s considered the King of Ayurvedic Herbs.  Withania somnifera is the official name of this plant that is also known as Indian ginseng or winter cherry. It’s a small evergreen shrub plant in the Solanacease or nightshade family. It’s grown in India, parts of Africa and the Middle East. The root is used to make the substance that is crushed into a powder that makes up the medicinal properties.  The berry doesn’t taste very good but is used to propagate for future planting.

HEALTHY HOME MEAL DELIVERY

Healthy home meal delivery may have started with milk delivery in the 1700’s or maybe pizza delivery in the 1800’s (if you think that is healthy!?). Either way its been around for awhile and has changed throughout the years. In the 1950’s Meal on Wheels began, which is a program delivering meals to seniors. In the year 2007 healthy home meal delivery started delivering pre-made meals to homes. Nowadays, ordering can be done online, with a mobile phone app or by calling in. Currently there are over 100 healthy home meal delivery options and I’m going to review Daily Harvest here for you.

10 WAYS TO WALK AT HOME

I can think of so many ways to walk at home but I’m going to focus on just 10 ways to walk at home. Walking at home leads to a healthy lifestyle that helps maintain good health and prevent disease.  With the gym limitations in some areas, it’s important to find ways to walk at home.  In my opinion, to walk from home is the most convenient and safest for me. I’ve adjusted my home to fit my needs for exercise by purchasing an elliptical machine and setting up a workout area in my home. The whole family is always encouraged to join in the routine to walk at home either walking the dogs or in the new workout area.
