Oil Pulling

Recently I came across a new trend called oil pulling. It's a simple regimen that you can add to your daily morning routine that will improve your health in many ways. It is quite simple. In the morning, on an empty stomach, swish coconut oil around in your mouth for about 15-20 minutes (apparently if your mouth starts to hurt you are swishing too hard). Just swirl it around and spit it out after those few minutes are up (do not swallow!). What you are spitting out are toxins that are coursing through your blood stream, and by removing them it will lead to a healthier you!
They say that oil pulling is probably most helpful for the gums, because it prevents the growth of strep bacteria. Nutritionist and doctors believe that there are beauty benefits to oil swishing as well.
Here are three main benefits that I found while researching this new trend.
Teeth Whitener. Coconut oil contains natural antibiotic and anti-viral properties that brighten yellowed and stained teeth and helps cleanse your mouth. It improves gum health and also gets rid of bad breath.
Acne Reducer. Oil pulling detoxifies the body and  helps eliminate toxins resulting in less blemishes and helps with eliminating rashes and/or skin issues.
It Can Lead To A Healthy Glow. Oil pulling works by removing toxins and bacteria that leak into your bloodstream These toxins effect your entire body, so by removing them the result is glowing healthy skin. It basically helps you glow, from the inside out!
Have you tried oil pulling before? Do you think that this is something you will add to your daily routine?

Crock Pot Chili

One thing that I love about fall is being able to break out the crock pot and make some delicious stews, soups, and chili. Here is a super easy chili recipe that is perfect for those cold fall nights. Just prep it the day before and start cookin in the morning so that when you get home from work you have a yummy hot meal waiting for you.
What You Need:
(1 lb) ground beef
2 chopped onions 
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 Tbsp tomato puree
2-3 Tbsp. chili powder (depending on how spicy you want it)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
2 (15 oz.) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
¼ cup water
What You Do:
Saute onions in a skillet until soft and translucent.
Next add your ground beef and allow it to brown. Drain once all your meat is brown and no longer pink.
Mix all ingredients except the cornstarch and the water into your crock pot.
Cover your mixture and cook it on low heat for about 6-7 hours. Turn heat up and mix in your cornstarch and water until smooth and add it to the chili mixture.
Uncover your crock pot and cook for about 15 minutes longer until it begins to thicken.
Top with cheese and/or sour cream.
Are you a chili fan?
