The "Real Deal" about Fall

We are pumpkin people eaters at our house

(oh wait, that's purple people eaters- oops!)

ENJOY A REAL DEAL PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE CLO STYLE

Pumpkin pie is a staple in our home all through the calendar year.  My kids love it for breakfast and it's an easy quick healthy option for us. I've alternated different sweeteners and can't say I've found a favorite yet. We still eat the pies because no mater how you mix it, pumpkin just rocks!

  We also add pumpkin to our Einkorn Pancakes often and use the leftover pumpkin for a pumpkin spice latte. We've shared our recipe for you on this post. Click on it to view larger to make your own CLO Style Latte. 

what makes pumpkins so great?

A cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains more than 200 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which aids vision, particularly in dim light, according to the National Institutes of Health. 

Pumpkins are also rich in carotenoids, the compounds that give the gourd their bright orange color, including beta-carotene, which the body converts into a form of vitamin A for additional peeper protection.

Nuts and seeds, including those of pumpkins, are naturally rich in certain plant-based chemicals called phytosterols that have been shown in studies to reduce LDL or "bad" cholesterol.

Like their orange comrades the sweet potato, the carrot and the butternut squash (to name a few), pumpkins boast the antioxidant beta-carotene, which may play a role in cancer prevention, according to the National Cancer Institute. 

Food sources of beta-carotene seem to help more than a supplement, according to the NIH -- even more reason to scoop up some pumpkin today. And the plant sterols in pumpkin seeds have also been linked to fighting off certain cancers.

The same free-radical-neutralizing powers of the carotenoids in pumpkin that may keep cancer cells at bay can also help keep the skin wrinkle-free, Health magazine reported.

Pumpkin seeds are rich in the amino acid tryptophan, the famed ingredient in turkey that many think brings on the need for that post-Thanksgiving feast snooze. While experts agree that it's likely the overeating rather than the tryptophan lulling you to sleep, the amino acid is important in production of serotonin, one of the major players when it comes to our mood, WebMD reports. A handful of roasted pumpkin seeds may help your outlook stay bright.

Ever heard of bananas being touted as nature's energy bar? Turns out, a cup of cooked pumpkin has more of the refueling nutrient potassium, with 564 milligramsto a banana's 422

A little extra potassium helps restore the body's balance of electrolytes after a heavy workout and keeps muscles functioning at their best.

Well, maybe. Whether or not vitamin C can really ward off colds is still up for debate, but pumpkins are a solid source of the essential nutrient. One cup of cooked pumpkin contains more than 11 milligrams, or nearly 20 percent of the 60 milligrams the IOM recommends women need daily. (Men should aim for around 75 milligrams.)

So in our opinion pumpkin shouldn't be kept on a shelf until fall. It should be enjoyed all your long!

Happy healthy Fall!

 

 

It's sexy to oil and be a man

As a man, I was skeptic at first and then my wife, Jen, handed me a bottle of peppermint for a headache. Before I walked out of the bathroom from putting it on, the headache was gone. It was a bazaar feeling. I always battled through them because I didn't like taking any medications. Now I use them for sore muscles, immunity booster, sleep and allergies. My go to oil is purification. I have a bottle sitting on my bathroom sink right now. I use it for zits and a crazy ring worm I have from walking through the woods to the shooting range. I even put the crazy oil in our dog's ear because she is prone to yeast infections. I've mixed up lavender and purification diluted 50/50 for her and I guess you could say myself too. 

 I became a full blown believer after using oils when I had my wisdom teeth pulled. Jen gave me a roller bottle of her "oils concoction" to use before and after. I was able to drive myself because I didn't have anesthesia. I never had the preventative stuff from the dentist filled and just took the "oils concoction" with great results. Once the numbing medicine started to wear off I could feel the pain and Jen came in ready with the "pain pill" in hand ready for me to test out with ice packs. After a nap and a protein smoothie, with Pure Protein Complete,  I was ready to go to band practice that night. The next morning Jen thought I was crazy for trying to go to work. She asked if I was in pain and truthfully I felt fine. My co-workers thought I was crazy too and they all examined my face to find absolutely no swelling. They were impressed and truthfully, so was I. 

 My favorite oil would be a tie between peppermint and thieves. I like the cleaning, purifying and immune fighting capability of it. A drop of thieves in apple cider is just plain awesome. We put thieve on our kids every night along with Immupower and its cool to me that we can keep them healthy by "oiling them up". Our four year old ask for his oils every night. He likes the way they make him feel, which is cool. So I guess you could say I'm a crazy oily guy and my wife says "it's sexy to be oily". Shoot us an email (by clicking on the round envelope above) if you want to try these oils for yourself. Jump on over to the Crazy Little Oils FB page and say hi and see what the buzz is all about. Thanks for stopping by.

Clove and cinnamon bark are amazing for purifying any surface it contacts. There is a whole story behind the name "Thieves" that is quite interesting.

With my crazy crew I'm incredibly thankful for the concentrated Thieves cleaner that allows me to make household cleaner, dishwashing detergent, hand purifier and purifying wipes in a snap!  I need fast, simple and less icky in my life, don't you!  Okay so for the recipe....

NUTMEG

Known as a popular spice around the world, nutmeg is also popular for its many health benefits. In fact, since ancient times, nutmeg has been used as a remedy for various ailments or to improve health in general. Here are some of the health benefits that nutmeg provides.


1. Brain Tonic
During ancient times, Roman and Greek civilizations used nutmeg as a type of brain tonic. This is because nutmeg can effectively stimulate your brain. As a result, it can help eliminate fatigue and stress. If you are suffering from anxiety or depression, nutmeg may also be a good remedy. Nutmeg can also improve your concentration so you can become more efficient and focused at work or at school.

2. Pain Relief
Nutmeg is also an effective sedative. In fact, nutmeg is a staple in ancient Chinese medicine. The Chinese used the spice to treat inflammation and abdominal pain. Use nutmeg if you are suffering from aching joints, muscle pain, arthritis, sores and other ailments. To relieve the pain, apply nutmeg oil to the affected areas.

3. Indigestion Relief
If you suffer from digestion-related problems like diarrhea, constipation, bloating, flatulence and so on, nutmeg can effectively offer you relief. Nutmeg oil relieves stomachaches by removing the excess gas from your intestines. Nutmeg can also boost your appetite.

4. Bad Breath Treatment
Because of its antibacterial properties, nutmeg can also effectively treat halitosis or bad breath. As you probably know, bad breath is usually caused by a build-up of bacteria in your mouth. Nutmeg can rid your mouth of these bacteria. This is the reason why nutmeg is a common ingredient in many brands of toothpastes. Nutmeg can also be used to treat gum problems and toothaches.

5. Liver and Kidney Detox
Detoxification is an important factor of good health. Diet, pollution, stress, tobacco, medication and other external substances can lead to the build-up of toxins in your organs. The liver and kidney are two of the organs where this toxic build-up usually develops. As a tonic, nutmeg can clean your liver and kidney and remove these toxins. If you are suffering from a liver disease then nutmeg can also be beneficial. Nutmeg is also effective in preventing and dissolving kidney stones. When your liver and kidney are successfully detoxified, they can perform their function better.

6. Skin Care
If skin care is one of your priorities then you might want to incorporate nutmeg into your regimen. Nutmeg can actually help you achieve smoother and healthier skin by helping you treat several skin problems. A scrub made from nutmeg powder and orange lentil powder can help you remove blackheads, a type of acne characterized by pores clogged with excess oil and dead skin cells. If you suffer from acne marks, nutmeg can also help make your scars less noticeable. What you need to do is mix some nutmeg powder with some honey to make a paste, which you will then apply to the acne marks.

7. Sleep Aid
If you have difficulty sleeping at night, drink a cup of milk with some nutmeg powder. This will help you achieve relaxation and will induce sleep.
