Eat Eggs with Omega 3s

Our reseach has led us to eat Eggs that have more Omega-3s.

My husband loves eggs. Scrambled, sunny side up, hard boiled, omelet, quiche, poached, any way you can possibly cook an egg. So I was in a Panic when we were told not to eat eggs and especially the egg yoke.

He loves the egg yoke, hard or runny. That has the most flavor.
So I wondered, why are we being told to limit eating eggs and especially the yoke of eggs.

What I discovered is that chickens fed a diet containing soy have more Omega-6s than Omega-3s. We need both 6s and 3s but more in a 1 – 1 ratio rather than 15 or 20 to 1 ratio that occurs with chickens on a soy diet.

You can read about the difference between Omega-6 and Omega-3 here -

There are also other side effects of eating soy products that are detrimental to our health.

I mentioned in an earlier article (Why are we told to Limit Beef Consumption) about children, both boys and girls, being bombarded with an overdose of hormones.

First it was from the cattle being given hormones so they would mature faster and produce more. Now it is from egg laying hens being fed a ‘Vegetable Diet’ containing soy.

Are you starting to get the picture that we are giving our children and ourselves a steady diet of hormones? I can’t imagine wanting my husband or my kids taking female hormones every day but if they eat soy products that is exactly what happens!

Babies, both girls and boys, on soy formula receive the equivalent of 5 birth control pills every day! Can you imagine the long term affect on those children?

So, I did my research and found organic eggs that contain no soy or antibiotics. They are also high in Omega-3 and lower in Omega-6.

Boy, was my husband happy that I found eggs that are actually good for us.
My theme is simple. Go organic. You cannot go wrong feeding your family food that is free of chemicals and genetically modified grain and soy.

Signs of Riboflavin Deficiency


Also known as Vitamin B2, plays a key role in maintaining the health of
humans because it is a central component in a wide variety of cellular
processes. It plays a role in energy metabolism, and other metabolism of
fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

It is used to fortify foods such as baby foods, breakfast cereals, pastas,
sauces, and processed cheese as well as being used as food coloring because
of its orange/yellow coloring.

Signs of riboflavin deficiency are: cracked and red lips, inflammation of the lining of the mouth, mouth ulcers, cracks at the corners of the mouth and sore throat. Having a riboflavion deficiency can also cause scaling skin,runny nose, bloodspot, itchy, watery eyes that are sensitive to bright light.

Did you know?
Because Riboflavin is fluorescent under a UV light, diluted solutions are often used to detect leaks in industrial occupations such as plumbing.

You learn something new everyday!

Riboflavin can be found in the World's Greatest Liquid Vitamin-Mineral

Why are we told to Limit Beef Consumption ?

Why are we told to Limit Beef Consumption ?

We are told the main reasons are to help control our intake of saturated fats and cholesterol to protect our heart. Sounds like something we would readily accept.

But the real reasons are more diabolical than you can imagine. Europe has banned the use of hormones in beef production for decades. Read why.

Yet our own FDA allows hormone use so cattle will grow faster and be ready for market in a shorter period of time. Cattle are also given antibiotics because of their crowded living conditions to ‘help’ keep them healthy until they are ready for market. Find out why here -

Since the FDA knows that hormones and antibiotics are bad for us but they can’t seem to limit their use ($), we are told to simply limit our consumption. Maybe that will help. It’s kind of like if we eat poison a little at a time instead of all at once we will live a little longer. Isn’t that thoughtful?

Have you noticed that ‘Little Girls’ seems to be maturing at an earlier age? Have you noticed that a lot of ‘Little Boys’ are as in touch with their feminine side as the little girls? Have you also noticed that germs & viruses are developing a resistance to antibiotics?

This is not simply due to nature, you know.

Continue following our future blog’s to learn more about how food affects our children. But back to beef consumption.
Our kids, girls and boys alike, are being bombarded with an overdose of hormones and antibiotics! When they were babies and you thought they were on a healthy diet of milk …. Just remember what those cows are being given.

But that’s only the beginning. Ever since those same kids started eating ‘real’ food, they ate beef, cheese and butter from cows that are given hormones, antibiotics and now many of them are getting fat eating a diet of genetically modified wheat and soy that is also loaded with hormones.

Even Angus does not escape this kind of cocktail. The only way to avoid eating these ‘Farm’ raised beef products is to feed your family organic grass fed beef that are ‘finished’ on grass. Learn why here -

Buying organic grass fed beef directly from a local farm is the only way we are going to force change in our food production. Find a local grass fed farm here -

Energy Drinks cause dehydration

Have you ever felt thirsty after drinking an energy drink?

Energy drinks cause dehyration and increase acidity in the body. The key ingredient in energy drinks is caffeine - sometimes listed as yerba mate or guarana.

If you want to re-hydrate - you'll need to drink TWO cups of water for every cup of energy drink you consume.

In Dec of '09 we switched to drinking alkaline water. It actually tastes better than bottled water with no "oily" taste that comes from chemicals leaching out of the plastic water bottles.

The system we use is also listed in the PDR (Physician's Desk Reference) manual and can be found at

You can also download a free E-Book at the site about the benefits of alkaline water.

Babies fed soy-based formula

Did you know??
Soy when digested turns into a female hormone.


You can get more info at

Babies fed soy-based formula have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen compounds in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula.

Infants exclusively fed soy formula receive the estrogenic equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day.

Male infants undergo a “testosterone surge” during the first few months of life, when testosterone levels may be as high as those of an adult male. During this period, baby boys are programmed to express male characteristics after puberty, not only in the development of their sexual organs and other masculine physical traits, but also in setting patterns in the brain characteristic of male behavior.

Pediatricians are noticing greater numbers of boys whose physical maturation is delayed, or does not occur at all, including lack of development of the sexual organs. Learning disabilities, especially in male children, have reached epidemic proportions.

Soy infant feeding—which floods the bloodstream with female hormones that inhibit testosterone—cannot be ignored as a possible cause for these tragic developments. In animals, soy feeding indicates that phytoestrogens in soy are powerful endocrine disrupters.

Almost 15 percent of white girls and 50 percent of African-American girls show signs of puberty such as breast development and pubic hair, before the age of eight. Some girls are showing sexual development before the age of three. Premature development of girls has been linked to the use of soy formula and exposure to environmental estrogens such as PCBs and DDE.

Benefits of Coconut Oil vs Soy

Coconut oil has been consumed in the tropics for thousands of year. The health benefits from consuming coconut oil are numerous. They include stress relief, increased metabolism which helps with weight loss,increased immunity, proper digestion, and many more benefits including maintaining cholesterol levels.

At one time coconut oil was a favorite in the baking industry because of it's long shelf life and a 76 degree melting point. Most food manufacturers stopped using coconut oil and replaced it with hydrogenated polyunsaturated oils which derive from soy.

Why this change from coconut oil to soy? Because soy is a HUGE cash crop in the U.S. and it's cheaper than Coconut oil.

See the link "The Dangers of Soy" for an informative video and come to your own conclusions.

As for me and my house -- we have removed ALL soy products!

Delicious Organic Beef

What are the benefits to eating organic foods?
The impact to the earth and the environment is lower. The animals, even being raised for strictly food enjoy a life (no matter how short) that is relatively stress-free, free-grazing on the land and not being manufactured in crowded and sometimes deplorable living conditions.

Organic farmers use less energy, less water resources, and NO pesticides. Organic farmers rarely have to burn their fields, because their soil stays rich in content, moisture and nutrients due to careful management of land and using only natural organic matter to cultivate and grow their crops.

When industrialized agriculture (union farms) arrive in farming communities, many farmers are forced out of business. Great expanses of farm land are swallowed up and a way of life that has sustained humans for centuries vanishes. Gone too, is the regard for animals. Placing the animals in crowded living conditions, not allowing them the freedom of movement, fed enriched grains and additives to promote quick growth, and all for what? All for greed.

Each month dozens of new pesticides, cleaners, fertilizers etc… show up in local supermarkets and stores. These products, advertised heavily are purchased and used and thus the destruction of the earth continues slow and steady.

Organic farmers, live cleanly. Free of pesticides and toxins. They do not clutter up the landfills with toxic waste or subject their bodies to unhealthy foods. It is a conscious choice. One made in order to survive right along with the planet that sustains them

After we decided to start eating organics we were on a search
for hormone and antibiotic free meats. These are delicious and your health is definitely worth the extra money!, your on-line store for all natural, grass fed, extra lean and
heart healthy Baldwin Charolais (Char-lay) beef.

Our cattle peacefully graze about 800 acres of intensive managed high energy,
high protein grasses that are free of chemicals.
