quick healthy meals Los Angeles

As a parent, you have good intentions when it comes to feeding your family a healthy diet. For years now, you have known about the dangers of processed, high-fat, high-sugar foods. You are trying to buy more raw fruits and vegetables. You know it’s critical to consume whole grains, Omega-3s, antioxidants – and all that other good stuff.

The problem is that knowing doesn’t always translate to doing. Busy schedules, picky eaters, food allergies, and a tight budget can thwart your nutritional goals.

Today’s post contains four tips for quick, healthy meals.

1. Health-ify.

Okay, I made up that word. But you know what I mean. Write down all the meals and snacks your family enjoys. This will help you see a pattern to their preferences. Make sure you keep the healthy stuff as standing items on your grocery list. Find recipes for making the not-so-healthy dishes more healthy. Substitute whole-wheat pasta and tortillas, reduce the cheese content, add some vegetables, or bake instead of fry.

2. Freeze some for later.

The next time you prepare a healthy meal, quadruple the recipe and freeze three meal-sized portions. It may take a little longer, but you will have three healthy meals in your freezer to pop out and heat up the next time you don’t have time to cook. This will prevent you from ordering a pizza or picking up burgers at the nearest Los Angeles fast food drive-up window.

3. Crazy combos.
This works with tacos, pasta, salad, rice, or pizza. You provide the base such as plain pasta, rice, tortillas, lettuce or individual pizza crusts. Prepare a variety of toppings such as chopped green peppers, baby spinach leaves, cooked low-fat chicken, chopped apples, diced tomatoes, chopped onions, raisins, broccoli pieces, shredded carrots, chopped nuts, chopped hard-cooked eggs, or pineapple chunks. Add some sauces to the choices such as salsa, low-fat Alfredo sauce, barbecue sauce, or marinara. Your kids might put together unusual combinations such as salsa on pasta or shredded carrots on rice. So what? They are more likely to eat it if they create it.

4. Plan dinner at breakfast.
Decide first thing in the morning what you are going to make for dinner. That way, you can put chicken in the crock pot, pick up needed ingredients on the way home from work, or pull out frozen items to thaw. When it’s time to prepare dinner, you already have a head start.

I hope these ideas help your family eat healthier. For more information on x power square or a fun Los Angeles home business opportunity, give me a call today.

Turn Your Car Into A Mobile Los Angeles Office

June 23rd, 2016 by LA Healthy Chocolate

Turn Your Car Into A Mobile Los Angeles Office If you are a busy Los Angeles home based business owner, you may have noticed that your work-at-home job has turned into a work-in-car job. I have been operating a direct marketing business out of my Los Angeles home since October 2008, but I spend a considerable amount of time on the road in the 90267 zip code area.

One day, I realized that the back seat was covered with xobiotic samples, the floor was covered with x power square brochures, and the dash was covered with sticky notes.

I have a beautiful office in my Los Angeles home: it is organized, comfortable and well-supplied. Why couldn’t I create a mobile version of my home office in my car?

I got to work. I headed out to my closest Los Angeles office supply store. I purchased a hanging file folder for paperwork and sturdy plastic boxes to organize samples in my trunk. (One of my xobiotic team members uses heavy cardboard banker’s boxes to hold samples. She thinks they are easier to label.)

Next I had to tackle the little stuff: paper clips, sticky notes, and pens. I found that cup holders can be great organizers.

If you want to invest in gadgets for your car office, there are endless possibilities:

  • Car desks that are secured with a seat belt
  • Car printers
  • Wireless mouse you direct with your thumb
  • Device that turns your cigarette lighter into a USB port

To be a successful xobiotic network marketer in Los Angeles, I need to be ready when a sales or recruiting opportunity unexpectedly presents itself. Now that my car office is organized, I am much better at capitalizing on these opportunities.

To learn how to expand your Los Angeles MLM network, call me today. The xobiotic opportunity is providing residual income for Los Angeles entrepreneurs just like you.

P.S. It may be a good idea to tell your Los Angeles auto insurance provider that you use your car for more than commuting. Some carriers don’t cover claims for vehicles that are used as mobile offices. Discuss your situation with your agent to protect yourself and your Los Angeles business.

Atlanta Georgia Sydney Weaver UPWords Inspires People in Los Angeles California

June 8th, 2016 by LA Healthy Chocolate


UPwords came about with the simple idea of touching lives one person at a time. UPwords is about connecting with Los Angeles, California neighbors, co-workers, friends and family. UPwords teaches Los Angeles residents to encourage each other in simple, powerful ways that easily fit into crowded schedules.

Much more than a greeting card company, UPwords uses thoughtful products that provide life-giving, creative connections. Our little cards are specifically designed to take out the middleman, the postman and let YOU deliver. It’s how we turn a stranger into an acquaintance, and an acquaintance into a friend. It’s how we make these connections that all the industry-leading technology in the world simply can’t replace. And UPwords cards are just the way we can do that. So Los Angeles, it’s time to get connected. It’s time to move UPwords!

Before we get to the “how,” let’s start with the “why.” Why inspire others? The answer lies in the construction of the words, “inspire” and “Spirit.” Both words are rooted in the Latin word “spirare,” which means “to breathe.” The word “inspire” is broken down into two root components, “spirare” which means “to breathe,” and “in,” which means, “into.” To “inspire” is, in a spiritual sense, to “breathe into.” To inspire someone is to breathe life into them. Inspiration is one of the greatest gifts you can give anyone. When you inspire others, you give them life. It is that simple. Inspiration multiplies, rippling outwards like a pebble thrown into a quiet lake. Allow yourself to be inspired, and you can touch dozens of lives. Hundreds. Thousands. Millions.

This now becomes a matter of choice, as you asking yourself: “Do I want to be an inspiration to others?” Only you can answer this, but I can tell you that choosing the path of inspiration is both rewarding and fulfilling. As for how to inspire others in your Los Angeles, California circle of influence? I must first explain how inspiration works. Your physical body requires a continuous flow of air to function properly. I made your body so that this happens naturally, without you having to think about it. With that air, you are able to move about and do things in your world. Without air, you wither and die.

The same principle works when it comes to your Spirit. Your Spirit needs a continuous flow of certain things to function properly. These things are ideas and possibilities. With a continuous flow of ideas and possibilities, your Spirit is able to complete what it came to Earth to do. Without these things, your Spirit withers and dies. When ideas and possibilities are not flowing in your life, hopelessness and despair move in to choke the life out of you. Fortunately, your Spirit never has to be disconnected from the steady flow of ideas and possibilities, for it made it as natural as breathing is to your physical body.

I am the ultimate source of inspiration. I breathe into you a continuous flow of ideas and possibilities every moment of every day. You disrupt this flow when you choose to dismiss these ideas and possibilities as “impossible.” Only when you let go of the concept of “impossible” can you fully feel my inspiration.
