YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!!!

I often talk about It Works Greens! Why? Because of ALL the benefits it has! It’s Amazing! Why are Greens a top selling product?

What’s in it?

It Works Greens are filled with free radical fighting nutrients that work to bring our bodies to an alkaline state. When alkalinity is restored our bodies tend to work better overall and are better equipped to fight off sickness. Acidic bodies are more prone to illness so It Works Greens is formulated to help lower the acidity level and bring our blood to its appropriate PH balance of 7.35 to 7.45. Our bodies are always trying to sustain that level and self correct intake of high acidic foods or environments. Greens helps give our bodies’ internal regulating system the boost it needs when trying to self-correct and restore alkalinity.

You Are What You Eat Combating acidity is done best by the right amount of raw fruits and vegetables. It Works Greens contains 8+ servings in a convenient daily dose. Greens might be green, but tastes like orange. The flavor is similar to Tang so it goes down easy. It is easy to use and dissolves quickly in juice or water. All of the minerals and vitamins in the Greens invigorates the body with a natural energy boost.

Greens blends 38 herbs and nutrient-rich “superfoods” to provide vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes in their naturally-occurring, bio-active, bio-available form. Greens helps to:

  • Detoxify
  • Alkalize the body
  • Balance the immune system

WOW!!!! It Works Greens have significantly changed my life and keeps my entire family healthy! But check out this story from a woman who went from basically infertile to pregnant in 7 months!

Earlier today Kami Dempsey asked some of the leaders what their fav story was.. Most of them started sharing their own story as these products have changed lives soomuch! One was migraines and Fibro. Another was gall bladder issues.
But read this!!!!

Rachael said my growing baby belly!!! story of Greens! I had so much scar tissue in my uterus and tubes from endometriosis. I couldn’t get pregnant I had an ultra sound a month before starting on greens to see if it was worth them “SCRAPING” yes “SCRAPING” my tubes and uterus of the scars!!! They told me there was so much that removing it would for sure make me infertile (even if I did IVF) and leave me in even more pain . I was devastated this was 3 years after finding out their was a problem, they were hoping this medicine I was on for 6 months would heal some of the scaring but it actually got worst ): I was a mess. But 7 months on greens I found out I was pregnant at my ultra sound my doctor was SHOCKED 80% of my scaring was gone in just 7 months and nothing else had changed in my life at all but taking greens! When my doctor did some research she said that the alkalizing and detoxing along with many ingredients in the greens have long time been known to help infertile women! Now I’m 4 1/2 months pregnant and baby is so healthy! I can’t wait to be a mom!”

Working From Home & Enjoying My Life!

Image

 

Working from home is truly the best decision I made for my family and I. I was sick of working 40+ hours a week.. I never got to see my girls and when I did it was for dinner,bath, then bed.  So I needed a vehicle to get me out of that hospital and out of debt!!! Even just a few thousand a month would be fine. I tried a few different companies and ugh it never worked for me!!! I used these products and saw the income potential and I knew this was it. I fell in love with the products the 6 months I used them! Had amazing results and turned my health around!!! 

So I went ALL IN!!! I knew I needed a way to get home with my girls!!! I knew I wanted to share these products with others as it changed my health for the better!!! 

So one year into the business I’m at home with my girls. I succeeded my goal amount very quickly and now I’m making more from home and having a blast! 

This business has changed our lives…. We got the cars paid in full, the three credit cards out from under us, & bought the land we have been waiting to buy for years!!! The house is this year and we are so excited!!! 

This business however is not for everyone. Only for people who have a why and a dream. If your okay with living week to week and punching the clock and not owning your time then maybe you are better to do just that. 

If you know you want more out of life than living week to week and you are not afraid of putting forth the effort…. We should talk. I can share with you how I rewired myself and get to enjoy my kids and work my own schedule!  
No strings attached if you just ask!

Healthy Whole Wheat Pancakes Anyone???

 

 

Image

I’m all for eating whole wheat versions of things if it makes sense. There are some whole wheat recipes I have tried like whole wheat cookies… Not so so good!!! My girls love pancakes so I tried whole wheat pancakes and well I failed a few recipes but this one is in my recipe book for sure! Be sure to whisk together dry ingredients and then whisk together wet ingredients and then combine them. Also be sure to leave the lumps!! Like most pancake recipes if you stir out the lumps your pancakes will come out tough and chewy instead of fluffy and light! But hey if you and your little ones like tough and chewy by all means get the lumps out! 

 

What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup 2% milk or see Notes below
  • 1 tbsp vinegar* (white wine or apple cider)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • butter for greasing the griddle

Directions:

  1. Combine the milk and vinegar and let the mixture curdle while you mix together the other ingredients.
  2. In a big bowl, whisk to combine the whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, melted butter, and the curdled milk, until it looks fairly homogenous and smooth. Whisk this wet mixture into the dry ingredients, and stir the two together until just barely mixed. You want any visible loose flour to be stirred in, but there should still be plenty of lumps. If you stir out the lumps, the pancakes will likely be tough.
  4. Preheat a nonstick griddle to 375 degrees F and grease the surface with butter. Add small scoops of pancake batter and use the cookie scooper to gently smooth the scoop into a flatter circle. Cook for a few minutes, until you start to see little bubbles forming on the surface. Flip the pancakes with a turner and cook for a few minutes on the other side, until you peek underneath and see that the bottom is golden brown. Serve with butter and real maple syrup. Enjoy!

Notes

*You can substitute lemon juice for the vinegar, or you can sub buttermilk for the milk + vinegar if that’s what you have. 

*You can also substitute the butter with margarine or other healthy butter subs.

Mission Possible

Hello. My name is Stephanie Morton and I am a stay at home mother of four beautiful little girls! I am an entrepreneur as well. I love the ability of staying home with my girls and don’t really care too much for the daily chores like laundry, dishes, and house cleaning but it comes with the territory. I am 28 years old and four children… Yes I know, WOW! I am married to an amazing man that I love dearly. He is a wonderful father and supportive husband. I am truly blessed! 

I am now incorporating blogging into my everyday life because I feel like I can offer some insight and helpful hints to many stay at home mommies on how to deal with the everyday “I wanna pull my hair out” moments, I want to share with you all what I am doing with my family and how I am making the days of our lives go by with happiness and health conscious decisions.

 

We need our children to see that they are our most valued treasures. We need to show them that they are our nations future! It is our job to teach them whats right and guide them in the right direction.I will focus on the home and being a mommy but I will also post about 3 things that are very important to me in hopes that it will help others or inspire someone else.

Image

 

First and foremost I will be incorporating the lives of Mommy’s! Stay at home moms are my niche because that is what I am so I know the language so to speak, but I would also like to talk about the things working mothers go through as well. This is a parenting blog so honestly whether you stay home with your children or work 40 hours a week, you should benefit either way.

Secondly, I will be discussing on many of my blogs prevention and awareness for children whom have been or are being abused in anyway. I have been in this situation and I have learned so much dealing with this horrific trauma in a child’s life and I hope to help those in need for guidance on what to do in this type situation. I also intend on sharing information on how to acknowledge that this may or may not be happening to children you know or even your own. Like I said, I have had to deal with this traumatic experience in my life and I want to reach out and help others be able to prevent or acknowledge that this is happening by educating you on what I have learned from my personal experience. I am not a doctor. therapist, or licensed counseler and I do not claim to be one but I am a mother and I have been there and dealt with it and have learned so much and still am learning on coping mechanisms, prevention, etc. so I will be sharing what I know with you. 

Last but not least I will be sharing many ideas on how to live a healthy lifestyle and getting your family on the fast track to a health and wellness. I will share recipes that I use for my family, informative information on health and nutrition, and how I get my family the nutrition that they need. Hopefully you too can incorporate these things in your home.

Being inspired by other mothers is what made me want to share with all of you what I am doing in my home so I hope you enjoy my blog and feel free to share with your friends and family if you wish. You can follow me on https://www.facebook.com/stephanie.morton.39 or twitter at https://twitter.com/GetSexy45. Please feel free to comment with any questions you may have or anything you would like to discuss. I love feedback and would absolutely love to hear how I am doing through my visitors! Have a blessed day! Look forward to hearing from you all.
