Organic Food Tax Write Off

I am finally preparing to have my taxes done this evening. Thats right, I did put it off until the last minute. I was contemplating what to write about for todays article while in the back of my head, thinking about what I will need to bring to the tax office tonight. I remembered a great idea that I had about this time last year about our taxes and the purchase of organic food.

You hear about it in the news, on TV shows and from politicians that Americas getting fat. Its not just the weight as much as it is our overall health that we should be concerned about but in todays economy it is very difficult for many people to eat healthy. It certainly helps to have an incentive in mind when deciding to switch to a healthy diet and many people are still skeptical about switching to organic food, assuming that its just a fad. It is slightly more expensive to eat organic but the truth is it that its the best choice we can make for our health.

America has become aware about the benefits of going green and making strides toward improving our environment but what we should also be concerned about is improving our health. If we can make America healthier one step at a time, a great start would be to allow tax payers to write off some of the cost of organic groceries. Not only will people eat healthier knowing that they will be partially compensated for the cost, it will benefit our country as a whole in many ways.

People who live healthy lifestyles will require less medical care. This is most likely a pipe dream, but it wouldnt hurt if our insurance would cover natural, homeopathic medicine as well as treatments like acupuncture and massage therapy, etc. Healthier citizens are more productive citizens. Employees will be more productive at work as they will be more alert, focused and happier because they will not be full of the toxins that can cause emotional problems, difficulty concentrating and so much more. Children who eat organic food function much better at school and will most likely earn better grades, increasing their chances for a decent job once they have graduated. I feel comfortable stating that the economy can only benefit from such a change.

We have two paths we can take. We can support local business owners like farmers as well as companies offering products that better our health and increase longevity, vs. giving our money to fast food and pharmaceutical companies. Why support businesses like McDonalds that entice prospective customers with visions of cheeseburgers dancing in their heads while delivering our children food that makes them look and feel terrible, not to mention includes meat from sick, hormone-injected cows. Come on guys, mommys taking everyone to McDonalds for dinner! I dont get the concept and the government shouldnt either.

We seem to be taking baby steps toward eating the right foods. Organic sections at grocery stores are growing and consumers are reading the labels before purchasing products. Now we just need the support of our government. If were not going to get rid of enterprises like McDonalds, lets at least offer even more incentives (above and beyond the obvious) for people to eat healthy. If our money goes toward organic food only, I guarantee you that businesses will want to accommodate our needs in order to thrive and our country will blossom from there.

Its time to come out of the closet about organic food. This is not a fad that will change over time- not once people notice the benefits that a nutritional diet can have on their health and appearance. Some people just need a little nudge in the right direction and a tax break just for one year just might do the trick!

Acne Control Tips That Minimize Breakouts

If youre searching for acne control tips that can diminish acne breakouts with no acne medicine, medications, or seeing a skin care expert, then the following acne control tips may be the most important information you read today.

Heres why:

Ive recently learned that you can reduce breakouts by getting your body to rapidly digest the foods you eat.

Let me explain

If your body process foods at a snail’s pace, foods will start to rot and release toxins throughout your body. And once toxin level reach a high point, your body will start to eliminate it through your skin, causing your skin to breakout.

So what you need to do is make sure the foods you consumed dont stay in your system for more than 24 hours.

So how can you speed up the digestion process and prevent your body from releasing toxins through your skin?

Consider the following:

Eat in a relaxed and calm state dont eat in a hurry, watching TV, driving or eat while youre doing something else. This can arcs back your G.I. tract and cause incomplete digestion.

So in order for your body to digest foods completely, you must eat in a relax state by taking your time and eating your food slowly.

Dont drink fluids with meals Drinking any type of drinks with your meals will dilute your bodys digestive juice which are needed for breaking down and digesting food.

Although water is essential for detoxification, the only time I recommend drinking water or any type of fluid is between meals or when youre consuming something very dry (but only drink enough to help you swallow it).

Chew food thoroughly chew and break down the foods you eat to the smallest particles possible before swallowing. Otherwise chunks of undigested food will enter your colon putrefying and feeding Candida and other parasites which can lead to acne breakouts.

Allow food time to digest before exercising I recommend you wait at least one hour before starting any type of workout after consuming any meal.

This is simply because when you exercise your body directs blood away from your digestive organs and transfer it to your muscles. This will slow down or even stop digestion altogether. So just relax after you eat.

Avoid eating big meals for breakfast or dinner Your body goes through a cleansing, absorption, and assimilation cycle every day.

The cleansing phase occurs at night till morning. This is when your system clears out all the toxins that it accumulated from the day before.

The absorption phase starts from morning to afternoon. This is when your system absorbs the nutrients from the foods you consumed.

And finally the assimilating phase. It starts in the afternoon and goes on until evening. This is when your system assimilates the nutrients that your system absorbed. And take them to the cells and organs that they need to be.

Therefore, if you eat large meals in the morning time your body will stop cleansing and start digesting the food you just ate.

The same happens in the evening. Your system will stop assimilating nutrients to your cells and organs and start digesting.

Therefore, the only time you should or could eat large meals is in the afternoon. When your body is absorbing nutrients from the food you consume.

What happens if you do eat big meals for breakfast and dinner?

Your body will become chronically toxic, because your system did not have the time or energy to fully cleanse your body of toxins.

Which of course can result in more acne breakouts.
