The benefits of eating whole grain bread like Ezekiel are:
- good source of dietary fiber
- anti-oxidant packed
- dietary minerals
- Carbs for energy
- And has been shown to reduce some forms of cancers, diseases, and obesity!
Now that's a piece of cake- no wait- a piece of toast!

Can you guess the food of the day?
Yummy goodness all wrapped up in a green peeling- my favorite color!
- Avocados are high in fat so don't eat too many of them- unless of course you want to gain weight or just don't care.
- They contain more Potassium than bananas!
- More protein packed than any other fruit
- There's more than 500 different varieties!
- Good source of Vitamin E
- And makes a great treatment for dry hair <:)

Well do you know that they are blaming the movies like Juno and Knocked Up!
What a bunch of BS!
I truly think that society has become so "bendable" and sways to every piece of information or lifestyle shoved in front of their faces. But you can't go blaming the movies. I saw Juno and I don't think it glorified pregnancy at all. Neither did Knocked Up.
Teenage pregnancy seems to be getting more and more common these days and because of that girls don't fear getting pregnant as much. They can just give the baby up for adoption like Juno did. Or they think hey me and the daddy will fall in love like the couple in Knocked Up.
Its not the movies fault at all and I don't see why they have to put up someone else for the blame. It's not Jaime Lyn Spears fault teens are getting pregnant.
Girls are having sex- that's the issue. Guys want sex. And these days the age of girls having babies are just getting lower and lower.
There will always be movies and movies are not real life.
And teens will continue to have sex and continue to get pregnant with or without the movies.
That's real life, no blaming the movies or celebs....Its those darn horny teen boys!
My big sis April had her baby at 19 years old. Almost not a teen...but still

I've cared about my impact on the earth for a few years now and it was a bit strange when all of the world started all this green trip, but I find it as a wonderful thing for more people to start caring. But at times I do get..frustrated seeing people wearing shirts that say great things like Recycle, Save the Whales, Save water-get dirty, ect ect.
But I cannot help ask myself: do they actually try and do all these things their shirts are showcasing? I sure hope so.
I wonder if they're just wearing these shirts because of all the radness about being green and they don't do anything different in their lifestyles.
But perhaps they are very green and are trying to spread the news of the eco lifestyle!
So to all the people of the world: Wear it and mean it

This is my ode to red hair:
A head of flames so brightly red
Because of a genetic mutation I read
So easy to spot red hair in a crowd
But so hard for people not to be wowed
And it's not just the hair- its the spirit inside
The crazy amount of pride supplied
No need to hide those firery locks
Because lots of people think that being red headed rocks
Its a gift to be so unique
To have hair considered quite chic
The Weasleys worked treases that were a flame
And just look at their growing fame
Natural redheads embrace that hair
And others who aren't find your own personal flare

That was a lot of fun!
If you are looking for a great red hair dye I suggest using Henna. Its completly safe for your hair and does not damage it one bit- it acutally enhances its beauty. Its my miracle hair dye. I had red hair already but it just wasn't as bright as I had always dreamed of. So I just slathered the messy muddy goop that is henna on for 3 and a half hours (natural ways aren't always easier but the result is totally worth it) and tada: bright red hair! But henna cannot lighten and only adds a red sheen to really dark hair. You'd have to lighten it before applying henna to get a bright red. Oh and use only body art quality henna, BAQ, because other "fake" hennas can do bad stuff to your hair. The hennaforhair site will tell you everything you need to know about henna!
There's all heeps of info about henna and other natural hair dyes here: http://www.hennaforhair.com/
Thanks for reading my poem and I hope you enjoyed your stay
I hardly ever get to go to them though :( -With the price of gas and the fact that I can't legally drive by myself yet- I just can't go as much as I wish I could.
When I do get to go I feel so happy surrounded by all the herbs and spices, the fresh organic fruits and veggies, and all kinds of vegan goodies I only see on online stores!
Health stores seem much more "from the heart" than any other store. Generic food stores do not have as much personalitly, or at least to me they don't.
Maybe someday I'll own a health store of my own. I think I'd call it HippieAdventures, since I really like hippieness and adventures ;-)
