Celebrate A Mother's Heart With A Nordic Naturals Giveaway

This Mothers day taste pure love with a gift from Nordic Naturals.


  Moms are the leaders of the family when it comes to watching out for the families well-being. We moms, do all we can to make sure everyone is healthy. I thought I knew everything about nutrition and feeding my family, but I was wrong, I have plenty to learn. I recently discovered that my family was deficient in omega-3s. Did you know that 91% of all Americans are deficient in omega 3s?  I thought my family was ok when it came to omegas. I just did not understand how my family was at risk as I mix flax seed meal into smoothies and serve fish once a week. I was shocked to learn that while my flaxseed was healthy, it was not giving me the proper out of omega-3 ++. While I was doing some good with these choices, I learned it was not enough as my family needed more omega-3's as they support many vital health functions. I did not want my family to be deficient in omega-3s.


 omega-3s can help support:

Normal cardiovascular and brain function
Mood support
Healthy joints, skin and eyes
Immune support
Nervous system function
A healthy pregnancy
Proper brain, eye and nervous system development in young children

++ 10. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FISH OIL AND FLAX SEED OIL?
Omega-3 fatty acids fall into two major categories: plant-derived (flaxseed) and marine-derived (fish). This is often confusing for physicians and patients, and many think the two are interchangeable. Flaxseed oil contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which can be partially converted to EPA and DHA, but that conversion is somewhat slow and can be inhibited by lifestyle and health factors. Research shows that approximately 5% of ALA converts to EPA, and just 1% converts to DHA, under optimal conditions. While flaxseed and flaxseed oil may contain many health-promoting benefits, they do not provide the necessary amounts of EPA and DHA.

Check out these articles for more information on omega-3s.
 http://www.nordicnaturals.com/en/FAQs_portal/FAQs_Home/632
 http://www.nordicnaturals.com/en/General_Public/Why_Omega-3s/542


  So what is a mama to do? I discovered that serving my family wholesome food and tasty omega-3 supplements is the easiest way to ensure that they are not part of the 91% of Americans who are deficient.  I was sent a bunch of Nordic Naturals products and a wonderful cookbook to help my family get their omega-3s. I was excited to try these products and recipes.There were even supplements for babies and pets, Nordic did not forget anyone when it came to omegas.


                    Just look at what my family received to help us with our omega 3 intake .
               
                                              Complete Omega Xtra (Mom)
                                              Ultimate Omega 2X (Dad)
                                              Children’s DHA (children)
                                              Probiotic Gummies KIDS (children)
                                              Vitamin D3 Gummies KIDS (children)
                                              Baby’s DHA (baby)
                                              Omega-3 Pet 2oz bottle (family pet) 
                        THE COMPLETE MEDITERRANEAN DIET by Dr. Michael Ozner


 It was easy to get my family to take their daily omega-3s as all these products tasted good. My boys loved the burst of strawberry flavor from the Children's DHA while my husband and I got a tasty lemon flavor from our omegas. I love that these soft gels contained pure fish oil to give my family what they needed in omegas. My boys also loved the flavors of the Probiotics and D3 supplements and I love that they getting additional immune and bone support. 

  The cookbook had many delicious heart healthy recipes in it that follow the traditional Mediterranean diet. Many of the foods I serve my family already follow this diet so this cookbook will inspire me to make some delicious meals to get even more omegas into our diet. I started stocking my pantry and freezer with heart healthy ingredients and will be making many of these recipes.

                                         Does your family get enough omega-3s?

Thanks To Strivectin I Can Smile Again


  My husband always tells me to smile when I am getting my picture taken. It drives him crazy that I chose not to smile in pictures. I simply choose not to smile for one reason, as doing so shows my age. When I smile those fine lines around my eyes appear, so I choose not to smile as I don't want people to know my real age. I smile a half smile in photos so those pesky fine lines are not seen. I do not like what age and other factors do to my skin. Do you have fine lines around your eyes? Notice in the photo below, this was taken a couple months ago, how I half smile.



  Thanks to Strivectin, I can smile again in pictures. Their new Intensive Eye Concentrate is proven to visibly reduce the look of lines around the eyes. I have been using this wonderful tube for about three weeks and I can see those lines starting to fade. I can't wait to see the results after using this wonderful cream for several months. My son is getting married in three months so by then my eyes will be amazing and I will be smiling in the wedding pictures!  I just want to hug the people at Strivectin and say "thank you for giving me my smile back!"


The folks over at Strivectin know about skincare. I am thankful for their 35 years of research and their patented NIA-114 technology. Their technology and other wonderful ingredients make for a great Intensive Eye Concentrate that will help me be able to smile again. This cream was not only made for fine lines, but also to help with screen fatigue. They realized that all that looking at screens like, computers, phones and Tvs,  leads to squinting and rubbing which causes signs of fatigue in our delicate eye area. Just look at the other ingredients and what they do for eyes.

Marine Micro-organism Extract helps to boost the skin,s natural collagen

Encapsulated Caffeine Compound delivers caffeine deeper and more efficiently to visibly reduce under eye puffiness

Optical diffusers- reflect light to brighten dark shadows and help alleviate visible signs of screen fatigue while improving makeup application and wear

I am happy to add Strivectin Intensive Eye Concentrate to my daily routine of skin care. My motto is why look your age when you don't have too. What are some of the things you do when getting your picture taken to look younger?

Vegetarian Chocolate Protein Pancakes

A great delicious healthy alternative to traditional pancakes.


   Pancakes are a special treat in our house. I don't make them often as they are not a healthy breakfast option. To me, they are more a dessert, especially when served with syrup.  I like my boys to eat healthy items like oatmeal for breakfast with fruit instead of pancakes with sugary syrup and fattening butter. My teen will once in a while make some pancakes for breakfast or they will enjoy them while camping. I have discovered a way to make pancakes that healthy and delicious. My chocolate protein pancakes are so delicious and are loaded with protein, fiber, and 21 vitamins and minerals. My boys love that pancakes are no longer for special occasions, in fact, they love these chocolate protein pancakes more than regular ones. The leftover pancakes are great for peanut butter sandwiches.



  So how can you make healthy and delicious pancakes? You add a delicious healthy chocolate protein powder to your pancake mix. My favorite chocolate protein powder is Chocolate Cacao Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal.  I always have a container in my pantry as I also use this incredibly healthy protein powder for my morning smoothies. The delicious chocolate flavor comes from Raw Cacao and organic stevia. What I really like about Raw Organic Meal is how they use organic raw plants for the  20 grams per serving of Organic Raw Sprouted Protein Blend. Then Garden of Life adds super healthy ingredients like Organic Raw fruits and veggies. They also add an Organic Raw fiber Blend from chia seed and flax meal. There is no need to worry about taking a probiotic, as Garden of Life added a Raw Probiotic & Enzyme Blend as well as an Organic Raw Greens Blend. Garden of Life packs a whole lot of nutrition into a scoop of delicious protein powder.



             Vegetarian Chocolate Protein Pancakes
Serves 2-4
Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 scoop Chocolate Cacao Garden of Life Raw Organic Meal
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups cashew or almond milk
2 tbs agave syrup or honey
1 egg
Coconut oil for the skillet

Directions:

1. Mix together the first five dry ingredients.
2. Add the remaining three wet ingredients and stir together until combined .
3. Place ½ Tablespoon of coconut oil into skillet and pour about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake.
4. Cook each pancake about 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve with fresh fruits like bananas or strawberries.

A Beautiful Solution To A Daily Hair Problem

This bracelet is designed to integrate your always-needed hair tie elastic with stylish jewelry.



   I love when I come across a product that makes me go, "where has this been all my life?" A couple weeks ago, my husband and I were watching TV and this commercial came on for the Maria Shireen hair tie bracelets I watched the whole ad and thought to myself "what a great idea!" My husband, on the other hand, made a comment in such that he thought it was a weird idea. I immediately explained to him about the frustrations, we ladies, have with the need to tie our hair back and not having a hair tie handy. My husband understood and then said, "you need to review this product." I, of course, wanted to so I could tell other ladies about this wonderful bracelet. The next day, I received an email from a PR person asking me to do a mother's day promotion for these beautiful bracelets. I, of course, said yes.


When I received my bittersweet By Maria Shireen hair tie bracelets, I was overjoyed with excitement. The bracelet was so beautiful. I just love how light it feels on my wrist. The flower design on the ends of the bracelet just adds a special touch of elegance. It is a stylish piece of jewelry that is so functional. I love that I can add any color hair tie to it and match my clothes for the day. This beautiful piece can be worn with any outfit, even my dressy ones. The most important thing is I will always have a hair tie available when I need it, no more having to search my purse for one. Never again will I be without a way to put my hair back. This will be great for those windy days, that come out of nowhere, and I need to put my hair back. 




  The Maria Sheen bracelet started as a present created by her husband. The ever-observant engineer noticed his wife's habit (a basic necessity!) of wearing an elastic band around her wrist. The problem was the elastic band was an eye sore and it left a dent around the wrist. Her husband decided to solve the problem, and did it with style! He created a bracelet that eliminates the pressure from the elastic around the wrist and makes the hair tie look like a stylish bracelet by creating a channel that holds the hair tie in place.  The idea was so simple but so unique that he currently has a patent pending for the design! 

                                            I just love how the bracelet got its name:
When my husband surprised me with the bracelet he had it engraved with my name (Shireen Maria) in my mother's native language, Farsi. However, my Icelandic husband did not realize that Farsi is written from right to left (not left to right like English), so the engraving read "Maria Shireen." When translated to English "Maria Shireen" means "bittersweet" which is where the name of the bracelet was born.  Thus began our journey to bringing this functional fashion accessory to women everywhere. 



  These wonderful bracelets are the most ideal, perfect gift for any mom, from the on-the-go mom and working mom to an athletic mom or traveling mom. They come in black, gold, silver, and rose gold and are just beautiful with or without a hair band! The bracelets hold those not so beautiful hair ties in a beautiful and fashionable way. Your mom will love you for this thoughtful gift...we promise! Get your mom, or yourself, one or more of these pretty bracelets and free your wrist from ugly hair ties.



                               Check out this beautiful bracelet and other styles and colors.
                                         http://www.mariashireen.com/

Do not forget to stop by the company’s social media sites as well:  Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Always keep one of your hair ties handy for times when you need to put your hair up, but don’t get caught without one of the Maria Shireen bracelet .

Spring's beauty reminds me of my beauty and how I want to glow like those flowers. I discovered some delicious supplements from Neocell that will help my skin look just as pretty as the spring flowers.



 The first Neocell product that I am loving is a wonderful refreshing cranberry drink mix that is infused with essential nutrients that work together to strengthen hair, skin and nails, hydrate the skin, and provide antioxidant power against environmental damage. Beauty Infusion Cranberry Splash is my delicious afternoon drink that will help my skin glow again. I simply take a scoop of the powder mix and add it to a pitcher of water and I hydrate my body with beauty. The directions say to add to a cup of water but I like my drinks less sweet and the extra water is good for me too. 




      Just one delicious scoop delivers:
  • 6,000 MG of NeoCell collagen™ Type 1 & 3 for firm, smooth skin & strong hair & nails*
  • 50 MG of Hyaluronic Acid for skin hydration & renewal*
  • 3,000 MCG of Biotin for support of strong hair & nail growth*
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C for protection from free radical damage & enhancement of collagen formation*

  The other delicious Neocell product that my taste buds crave is what I call my beauty candy. I just love that one NeoCell Biotin Bursts feeds my skin with a delectable burst of nutrients. This Acai berry flavored chew makes radiant skin so delicious. I love that these chews are low in sugar so I can indulge in a guilt free treat and get lots of biotin into my diet. Each chew has 10,000 MCG of Biotin and is formulated to be easily absorbed. Did you know that Biotin is an B vitamin for hair and skin health? I just love that a sweet treat gives me healthy skin and hair.

  Discover my favorite beauty treats and so many more as NeoCell has some great products that helps your skin, nails, and so much more.

Medical Grants Are Available for Children in New Mexico #UHCCF


"These opinions are my own and I was compensated to write this post."





  Having a sick child or one with special needs can be stressful. As a parent, you want your child to get the best health care treatments, services, or equipment. No child should be denied access to good health care simply because their parents can not afford them. A parent should focus on helping their child get better, not on medical bills. I want to share some information to New Mexico families about a wonderful organization that cares about children.

  The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation helps families pay for children’s medical expenses not covered, or not fully covered, by a commercial health insurance plan. Qualifying families can receive up to $5,000 per child, through a wonderful grant that has a lifetime maximum of $10,00 per child. Families can use this money to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids.



  The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is seeking grant applications from New Mexico families in need of financial assistance to help pay for their child’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan. To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Grants are available for medical expenses that families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. Families do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible.
                              Families can apply for grants at www.UHCCF.org




  In New Mexico, UHCCF awarded more than 5 grants since 2011 and is hoping many more local families apply this year. This wonderful organization has awarded over 10,000 grants to children and families across the United States. That is more than $29 million since 2007 that has helped children with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy. These children received the treatments they needed thanks to UHCCF.


   These pictures show some of the many children who received these UHCCF grants.To learn more about these children and more, please visit the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation's website at                                                               www.UHCCF.org
