Happy Flavonoids Day!

Beautiful Queens, Happy Valentine's Day!I hope everyone had a joyous day full of love and FLAVNOIDS!Flavonoids? I know, I can explain...

Flavonoids help protect plants from environmental toxins and assist with internal cell repair. So, when we consume plant-based foods rich with flavoniods, we also benefit from the antioxidants within foods. Now, antioxidants are believed to help fight against cell damage from free radicals from the environment that enter into our temples through simple entry, such as breathing and contaminate cell tissue. But, due to all the wonderful plants, fruits and vegetables that contain some sort of antioxidant benefit, we can eat healthy, while combating against the toxins of the environment.

Now, flavonols are the main type of flavonoids found in chocolate. As mentioned, flavoniods are naturally-occurring compounds found in plant based foods. They are part of the poly-phenol compound group, which is a chemical compound in food. There are roughly about 4,000 types of flavonoids compounds found in food and beverages, like red wine, cranberries, tea, onions, chocolate and much more! That all provide great health benefits-- lowering blood pressure, decreasing stress and reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

So, Queens, indulge yourself with some chocolate, in moderation that is...And, think about all the goodness you are consuming, for the betterment of your temple "the body".

Quitting? Don't!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
