Marilyn and I hope you're enjoying adding healthier foods to your diet.

So, today we thought we'd share with you how you can...

Soothe Your Aching Muscles with These All-Natural Remedies

If you're like millions of people who are constantly roused from a peaceful slumber with painful muscle cramps, backaches and stiff joints, then you know the agony these conditions can bring.

Instead of turning to those toxic pills, creams and solutions that can do more harm than good, reach for a combination of these essential ingredients and feel the difference these all-natural remedies can have on your strained muscles and over-worked joints:

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice

This flowering plant contains key substances like aloenin, magnesium lactate, barbaloin and succinic acid, which all may help reduce inflammation.

Camphor

This ancient herbal remedy has been used for centuries to treat minor sprains and muscle inflammation by acting like an anesthetic and antimicrobial substance.

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)

This essential ingredient can help increase blood supply, relieve muscle spasms, soften scar tissue and reduce inflammation.

Eucalyptus Oil

This fragrant extract has been used for centuries to ease minor pain in muscles and joints. This remarkable nutrient also has strong antiseptic and disinfectant properties.

Vitamin-E

This essential vitamin has been shown to help relieve minor muscle and joint pain associated with cramps.

Methyl Salicylate

This fragrant extract from the leaves of the wintergreen tree relaxes your muscles and eases your minor joint pain. This cooling analgesic was first used by native people as a poultice for overtaxed muscles, minor joint pain, minor strains and sprains.

Menthol

This pungent ingredient is found in peppermint oil and has been used for centuries to relieve minor muscle aches, sprains and similar muscle problems.

By adding these safe and effective solutions to your treatment regimen you can finally say goodbye to your muscle strains, backaches, joint pain and inflammation once and for all.

Plus, after enjoying everyday activities again you can rejoice knowing you’ll get a good night’s rest, too!

Vera Cruz Shrimp Tacos



Quick, easy, healthy, and delicious!

Homemade avocado salsa tops freshly grilled shrimp in a soft corn tortilla for a fast, flavorful meal that satisfies the entire family.

The next time you serve corn on the cob, try grilling it instead of boiling (recipe below).

Cooking it this way brings out more of the vegetable's natural sweetness.

* 1/2 ripe avocado, sliced

* 1/4 c. chopped cilantro

* 2 Tbs. ground flaxseed

* juice of 1 lime

* 8 corn tortillas (6" diameter)

* hot-pepper sauce

Directions;

1. Toss shrimp, scallions, oil, and oregano in bowl.

Let stand 15 minutes.

2. Combine tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, flaxseed, lime juice, and pinch of salt in another bowl.

Set aside.

3. Preheat perforated grill rack set over grill.

Wearing a protective mitt, brush grill rack with oil and wipe off excess.

Place reserved shrimp and scallions on grill rack.

Cook 2 minutes, or until shrimp are browned on bottom.

Flip and cook 2 minutes longer, or until opaque.

Remove to plate.

4. Place tortillas directly on grill.

Cook about 1 minute on each side, or until warm and starting to puff.

Place 2 tortillas on each of 4 plates.

Divide shrimp and scallions evenly on tortillas.

Top with reserved salsa and sprinkle with hot-pepper sauce.
