Today’s Cup of Tea is Sencha Green Tea with Sunny Mother Nature

Feel the wonderful benefits sink in while enjoying a cup of Sencha Green Tea with Sunnymothernature!

Do you love the finer things life has to offer?  That’s what you get with Sencha Green Tea!  Green Tea in general is really good for one’s health (although all teas have health benefits).  As with all teas, there are different qualities.  Compass Teas’s, at www.compassteas.com, Superior Sencha Green Tea is one of the top qualities of Sencha Tea available.  

Sencha Green Tea is considered to have a more refined taste.  Also, it is interesting to note that Sencha Green Tea actually brews green, not yellow or yellowish-green like some other green tea varieties.

Green tea in general has antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that are all good for one’s health.  It can possibly help your immune system, prevent diseases, help with mental clarity, etc.  The list can go on and on with what green tea can do.

I find that if I want to focus more, without becoming anxious, or hyper, green tea is amazing.  It relaxes me, but focuses me at the same time.

Today, I decided to brew some Sencha Green Tea because I wanted the awesome health benefits from it~ as well it is said to help clear your skin.  Yet, even if it doesn’t help my skin clear up, I know it is helping my body, mind and spirit in many other ways.

My Sencha Green Tea is from Compass Teas, at http://compassteas.com/oolongclassic-1.aspx (and yes it’s this link even though it says Oolong Classic) for 2 oz. for $9.25.  And, the best part is that this Sencha Green Tea is organic!  Sencha Green Tea can be found at other tea suppliers and wherever tea is sold too.

So, sit down and have a cup of Sencha Green Tea with me.  Mother Nature will love that you are doing a little something to improve your health, which in turn improves Mother Nature’s health! 

Have a sunny day!

Sunny Mother Nature Says Healthier is NOT the Same as Healthy

Sunny Mother Nature says that healthier is not the same as healthy!

I always find it amusing when people tell me that the margarine, or butter they use is so much healthier than the butter that they used to use.  Or that the chocolate they’re eating is healthier because it ONLY has 5g of saturated fat compared to 9g in the chocolate they normally buy.

Yes, buying “healthier” products is better for all of us than buying what we may normally buy.  I do often times buy that “healthier” margarine and the “healthier” chocolate myself.  Yet, is that 5g of chocolate really that much better than the 9g?  Especially if we eat more than what we would’ve eaten if it was the 9g?  I’m not saying continue buying the 9g chocolate, or the really high cholesterol, high saturated fat, high sodium butter, chips, frozen food, etc. at all. 

No.  My question and worry is that people will assume that by eating and buying these “healthier” items, they will believe they are eating “healthy”.  When, in actuality they may be far from eating healthy.  We may still be getting high amounts of bad cholesterol, saturated fat, and sodium by eating these “healthier” products. 

And the food ads are no help here.  Even various chips have on their packaging that they have 25% less fat than the original chips!  Yet, when you look at the back, they are still not that healthy of a chip.

So, what to do?  Well, I do not believe in depriving oneself of anything.  Instead, moderation is key. 

Look at food labels for the amounts and percentages of cholesterol, fats, and sodium, especially, in a product.  You will be surprised how high some of these percentages really are.  (This does take time, but it’s worth it.)

Just buy less processed and packaged foods.  Many packaged foods aren’t really that good for us anyway. 

Buy more actual fruits and vegetables-not fruit juices, or fruit snacks. 

And please, eat healthy, not “healthier”.  Mother Nature will be sunnier just thinking about it.  After all, if we’re all eating healthy, that means less packaging waste and less energy consumption for Mother Nature to deal with.
