What’s for dinner?

Ugh, the dreaded question. I cannot stand to think about this or when I am asked this question. My kids aren’t picky per se but I am damn sure not a domestic goddess so even if they were, they would be out of luck. Ok, I have a crock pot which is a godsend since I have 4 children and a demanding schedule. But how much variety is there with crock pot meals? Well, I am on a mission to find out! So far, this week, I have bought those Campbell crock pot ready sauces in the soup isle and thrown those in with a pork shoulder but unless you are starving to death, both kinds I tried were not that good. I did do marinara sauce & meatballs last night with success so there’s one. Paula Deen has a superb recipe for a beef pot roast. I use that one alot. It takes minimal prep and it is delicious! Here, try it: http://www.pauladeen.com/index.php/recipes/view2/pot_roast1/. I’ve heard chicken n’ dumplins in a crockpot but haven’t tried it. I prefer to do those the old fashioned way. I would love to hear ideas from other busy moms! I am going to try crockpot enchiladas tonight! I bought the perdue chicken already made, maybe throw some refried beans, black beans, cheese & some sour cream in there and see how it turns out. Feel free to give me some ideas because I cannot stand being asked what’s for dinner!? Help!

Thanks, Nikki



CBD Oil – Fact or Fiction?

First, I would encourage everyone to do their own research into  the medical wonders of CBD Oil at http://cbd4us.com/. I have recently been working with this company  Kannaway since my mom let me try some of their salve product that contains CBD Oil. I came over one day w/ one of those “cricks” in my neck from sleeping funny & could not turn my neck right. It was killing me. She urged me to rub some of Kannaway’s Salve on my neck pain. So, being the curious person I am about natural remedies, I did. Unbelievably, the neck pain that usually takes a week to go away was almost 100% better then next day!

I had ACL reconstruction & meniscus repair in my left knee in September & although Dr. Sparks said he tried to repair as much of my meniscus as he could, I would most likely continue to experience tenderness & pain in that area. He wasn’t kidding. I felt like that area was gonna split in half even six months after surgery. Nothing helped! I tried ibuprofen, hydrocodone, anti-inflammatory meds, nothing worked! I did not want to be stuck on pain meds forever anyways so I rubbed some of Kannaway’s Salve on there just hoping it would help. I put it on there a couple times a day & within a couple days, I realized that it wasn’t hurting anymore. I was in shock! Floored! So, I started to do more research on CBD oil and after my personal experience & reading about the amazing miracles from CBD Oil, I was sold. I teamed up with Kannaway as a brand ambassador which is only $15/month so I could get a discount on their products & make money from home while I shared this awesome product. I have even read that CBD oil helps with so many other things, MS, epilepsy, autism, mood, depression etc…

I bought their HempVap & shared it with my husband who has chronic arthritis pain & back pain. He never thinks anything works, even narcotics. He rubbed Kannaway’s salve on his sore areas & he said it actually helped. I was still in shock again & convinced of the power of  CBD Oil. Seeing it with my own eyes was amazing, feeling it work! So, if you are interested in the healing power of CBD Oil or teaming up with me at Kannaway, I would love to talk to you about it!

As promised – FLU Vaccine Ingredients

Flu season again… Well, let’s all line up to go ahead and get the flu (vaccine) along with whatever horrible things in that vile pumped into us so we don’t get the flu, right? Or wrong? Forget about for yourself, we as parents have already had so much bad stuff pumped into us by now that we are more concerned about our children. I am not a doctor but I am literate so after a heated discussion with the pediatrician over the flu shot she was trying to sneak into my daughters arm (2 doses, in fact), I decide to do some research. All I am going to include here are the ingredients in the flu vaccine because they speak for themselves. After that, you can decide if you want to inject it into your child. And remember, the flu shot only reduces your chances of getting the flu by 59%, therefore is not 100% protection from the flu. Remember, the vaccine is not a cure for the flu, it is merely a hope of reducing chances of catching the flu which you will probably do anyway. So, let the body fight naturally OR take the shot which injects it into you anyway along with other things? 

What does the FLU Vaccine contain? aluminum, antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), Thimerosal (mercury-containing), water, saline and adjuvants. (Adjuvants are chemicals of certain killed bacteria, which enhance the immune response to an antigen)

1. Aluminum: Aluminum attacks the central nervous system, can damage kidneys and is linked to degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s. Aluminium can cause neurological damage. 

2. MSG: can cause diabetes, adrenal gland malfunction, seizures, high blood pressure, excessive weight gain, stroke etc…

3. Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde is classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Flu shots have two and a half times the formaldehyde as the level listed as an immediate danger to health. 

4. Mercury: Mercury containing the ingredient Thimerosal has been proven toxic and banned from many products. FDA has banned the use of mercury in products such as makeup, cleaning agents and thermometers because of its dangers.This is the ingredient that is being blamed for autism and other neurological disorders and it is only a preservative in the vaccination from what I read. 

So, it is all a gamble. Either way you look at it, you are probably going to be exposed to the flu at some point and can get it anyway, flu shot or not, so are these toxins worth the risk of only minimizing your chances of getting a flu? Something to think about…




To Flu Shot or Not?

I took my 3 year old in for her annual check-up insisted she needed a flu shot. I looked a little hesitant so the doctor immediately, in a robotic (BIG PHARMA) method started spouting off the medical reasons why she believes the flu shot is necessary. Keep in mind, this doctor is young, fresh out of her fellowship, first year on her own. My response was more of the questioning nature about bad side effects and such. At this point she could see that the medical effects of not receiving the shot did not “touch” me so she began appealing to the motherly side of me… Oh she has seen little children suffering terribly horrible symptoms and dying from it in her residency and blah blah blah. Still, I say, you are not answering my question. So I rephrased. Do the risks outweigh the benefits or vice-verse? Or how about this, are these vaccines 100% effective? Her response, “they are effective in regards to the disease they are intended to provide vaccination for but they are just that effective to help prevent, not a cure”. Ok, now we are getting somewhere. So, I bring up the negative reports about vaccinations and their ingredients causing devastating afflictions such as autism, blindness, seizures etc…and in that (Big Pharma) robotic method, as if scripted, says, “There is no research that proves that is 100%, without a doubt the cause of such things.” Finally, the obvious, is there 100% proof that these vaccinations do not cause these things?! Her un-robotic response, “no”. Then she tells me to go to the CDC for more factual information. HA! Is that a fucking joke? Guess we need to find a new doctor. IN my next blog, I am going to help educate those in an unbiased manner on the ingredients in the FLU vaccine so we, as parents, can make an EDUCATED decision. 





What is CBD? Cannabidiol – Huh?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just a substance in marijuana that’s substantial health-related results, but doesn’t make individuals can in fact counter the psychoactivity of THC and experience “stoned”. The decreased psychoactivity of CBD-wealthy marijuana could make it an attractive treatment choice for individuals seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and/or anti-spasm results without disturbing problem or dysphoria.

Medical reports and medical emphasize CBD’s future as a cure for a broad selection of problems, including epilepsy, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, rheumatoid arthritis symptoms, and other neurological problems. CBD has shown neurogenic and neuroprotective results, and its anti cancer qualities are being researched at many educational study facilities within the USA and elsewhere.
