♥ Cinch Strawberry Sorbet 
 
INGREDIENTS:

6 Scoops  Cinch Strawberry Shake Mix
2 cups Nonfat milk or low fat soy milk
1 cup Fresh strawberries, cut into pieces

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:
Ice cream maker for home use. I don’t have an ice cream maker, but I’m thinking of getting one now! If you don’t either, this would make a delicious smoothie if mixed with some vanilla yogurt!

Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix well. Pour contents of blender into an ice cream maker and follow ice cream maker directions until mixture is the consistency of sorbet. Once your frozen treat is ready, scoop half the amount into a bowl or parfait dish to eat now or pour entire contents in a container and freeze for later use.

♥ Get every last drop of your Enfuselle Time Repair A.M. out of the bottle

The AM treatment comes in a great bottle, but when you get down to the bottom, we don’t always have the time in the morning to wait for that last little bit of wonderful lotion to slide down towards the opening. We have to get out the door now! Right? And setting it upside down just makes it all run into the cap then spill all over when you try and open it.  

So how do you get the rest of it out without wasting it?

Use a Q-tip. Keep your bottle right side up and just use a Q-tip to swab out what you need and it’s a perfect applicator to dab with around your eyes.

♥ Be kind to your heart

Your heart is an amazing organ. It does so much for us and we barely give it a second thought till we have a problem and often times by then, the damage has been done.

Like a true love, it takes care of us and all it asks in return is for us to take care of it. And like love, it will eventually break if neglected long enough.

So don’t break your own heart – take care of it, be kind to it and love it as if your life depended on it – because it does.

Here are some helpful ways to be kind to your heart:

1. Watch what you eat.
A diet low in saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, and sodium—but high in fiber— promotes a healthy heart. Don’t think you can give up the fatty foods cold turkey? (pun intended) Even small changes implemented into your lifestyle slowly can make a big difference.

2. Achieve a healthy weight.
Too many calories and not enough exercise can promote weight gain. We all know that. Let’s face it. As much as we all would love to take that magic pill that will melt the fat away, it still comes down to this basic rule for weight loss – more calories burned than eaten will equal weight loss. Just make sure you are losing in such a way as to not lose muscle.

3. Stay Active.
Get at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. An hour is better for losing weight, but 30 minutes is better than none. Even a simple, but brisk walk can make a big difference. Can’t walk or workout for 30 minutes? Try shorter times done more often. It doesn’t have to be done all at once. I bet you watched more than 30 minutes of commercials last night. Take that commercial time and get your heart working.

4. Take time for yourself.
As a busy mom, I know how easy it is to fall into that trap of never having enough time left over to take care of yourself, but you must. If you have everybody counting on you, then when your health fails you, that means they won’t have you anymore. And you know that no one can do all that you do as well as you do. So make sure to do one more thing for everyone else – take care of you! You are worth it, you know.

5. Laugh more.
Studies show laughing can relax blood vessels and contribute to a healthy heart. And besides, who doesn’t love a good laugh every day? Some days make take more effort to find something to laugh at, but if you look hard enough, you’ll find it.

6. Try supplementation. If you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure diet plays a huge role in getting those numbers lowered and the right supplements can help you achieve that. Contact us we will be happy to share what we have learned has worked for others.
