WITTYONE & AMYROSIE

Thank you so much for the information about pineapple juice. My father-in-law suffers from chronic acid reflux among other ailments. Since you mentioned I have been giving him pineapple juice and it is giving him relief. The only glitch is that he cannot consume too much potassium. So I give him in small quantities which still works for him. I have started including pineapple juice in my list of beverages. Thanks...

Lots of love...

Great idea on the pineapple juice...it's also great as a natural remedy for a digestive aid. Several years ago, my son was having problems with the almost constant feeling of a "spicy throat" (acid reflux). His pediatrician wanted to put him on prescription meds. I was against that, so I took him to the local natural foods store and talked to their inhouse experts. They suggested all-natural chewable enzyme tablets (main ingredient is bromelain which is in pineapple) for him to have whenever he was having issues. Plus, we journaled everything he ate for 2 weeks...long story short, when we cut out oranges from his diet, he had virtually no problems. We were eventually able to bring them back into his diet, just in moderation. He has only had about 3 issues in the past year. Amazing how just making sure you're putting the right food into your body can have such a big effect! I'm not totally against modern medicine, it does have its place, but we shouldn't be so quick to just pop a "magic pill" for every ailment.
Just a little something to think about...!

Don't expect a good day...make one!

After an hour of running or vigorous excersize they say it's good to have a drink with electrolytes. I use to drink gatorade but found that pineapple juice gives a lot more benefits. It is a natural anti- inflammatory , has vitamin b6, Thiamine , vitamin c and has potassium to prevent muscle cramps and provide electrolytes. I also drink a lot of water before during and after my workouts.

I do water, too. Another one I like is a simple protein smoothie. Chocolate protein powder blended with a cup of water and a ripe banana...you get your protein to repair your muscles, the vitamins & potassium from the banana, and your water in one shot for only about 200 calories. I can't do sports drinks after a workout...something about the fake coloring and fake flavoring doesn't sit right in my stomach and leaves me feeling a little icky! emoticon

What would be the right beverage to drink after a workout or after running? Usually I drink water and then a cup of chocolate milk. Are there any other good beverages that you would suggest?
