This is not the best pic in the world🤦‍♀️ it was from a few years ago when we didn’t have iPhones and didn’t run around taking pics of ourselves all the time😇😇😇. However it’s to show how wrong the thinking is of people who believe that lifting heavy weights will make you big and bulky lol. Now I’m sure we can agree that I don’t look big and bulky here at all and this was when I was lifting the heaviest went ever. Let’s just say I was squatting over 200lbs and leg pressing over 400 and lifting 40 lbs dumbells. I did body building competitions and power lifting🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️. Hello proof lifting heavy weights will NOT make you bigger. Your muscles grow and burn a ton more calories and takes up a tenth of the space as fat does. If you eat correctly you’ll actually get tinier💪🏽🏋️‍♀️💃💃💃🧠🧠🧠🧠🧠. Fitness brain food for the day💋💋💋

Wise words from a farmer friend of ours that I think a lot of us can relate to❤️
. "Food consumption is a very emotional topic. We all want to do the best for our families and it can be overwhelming to figure out what information is “right” or “wrong.” Are the studies double blind? Are the Journals peer reviewed? Who owns the news source?
Bottom line is that food is a very big business and that whenever possible it’s best to know where your food is coming from, how it’s grown and when possible, talk to the farmer to learn about their practices."
When you can seek out the local farmers in your area, start that conversation about food, how it's grown or harvested. What it means when marketing uses the buzz works "healthy" "pasture raised" "natural"
As a fellow farmer we welcome people to come and learn with us❤️

Today is National Dogfighting Awareness Day. Evil prevails when good people do nothing. No dog was, is or ever will be #BornTo fight. Dogfighting is a HUMAN construct and it's victims can not speak for themselves.
What was your dog #BornTo do?
Zoey was #BornTo foster homeless kittens.

Contrary to idiotic belief, these diseases are debilitating and deadly. Why would you be so selfish and foolish to subject yourself, your kids, and worse...those who medically can’t be vaccinated to this suffering because you accept fear over facts? #factsoverfear #vaccineswork #vaccinateyourkids #provax #evidencebasedmedicine #sciencebasedmedicine #epidemiology #microbiology #virology #infectiousdisease #preventablediseases

Last Friday I was granted a huge opportunity to attend the Women in Agriculture Conference in Rock Island. This opportunity was amazing and eye opening on the impact women can have in agriculture. Did you know that 30% of farmers are women? And that number is only growing. One thing that was emphasized was #factsoverfear I have found a new love this topic and I am excited to find and start new ways to promote this! #NationalAgDay is something that should be honored everyday as we agriculture is important in all aspects of life. Without agriculture you wouldn't have clothes, clean air, food, make-up, footballs, etc. Another fun fact, the United States exported over $140.5 billion dollars worth of agricultural goods in 2017. Without agriculture what would our economy be like? Promoting agriculture is important everyday!! #AgVocate #agday365 #factsoverfear @womeninagriculture @thefarmbabe

Little did I know when I took this pic that it would perfectly illustrate the chaos in my mind over the past week or so. And it does not look like the pieces are going to come together quickly or without serious effort and concentration on my part. Thank you, dear planets/powers that be, for asking more of me, but dayum. Hope y'all are feeling able and staying focused on facts and goals over fear in this crazy time of new moons and coming retrograde. 💛

Evidence should be based on literature not the listserv! A fact is all that! Food lies result in health demise. #factsoverfear #legitimacyoverlunacy

When our forefathers wrote the Constitution there already was a multiround handgun, 2 high capacity rifles (one of which shot 20 rounds in 5 seconds) and a gatlin gun. Educate before you decide they didn’t know there would be guns like this. They owned them. Also keep in mind the same government and famous people who are telling you that you shouldn’t be able to protect yourself with a gun...have security carrying the same guns they say you can’t have. #factsovermedia #factsoverfear #2ndamendment #truthhurts

Concern over our pesticide intake is nothing new & that fear often drives many of us, as consumers, to purchase organic food products.☝🏼
But how often are pesticide residues found in our food?
Not often per the most recent Annual Summary from the Pesticide Data Program (PDP). Data reported from the 2016 calendar year supported that, “when pesticide residues are found on foods, they are nearly always at levels below the tolerances set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)”.
What are Tolerances?
This term refers to the maximum quantities of pesticide residues allowable on a raw agricultural commodity. Tolerances also apply to processed foods. These are defined under section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
What Else Did the Summary Report?
• 23% of samples tested had NO DETECTABLE pesticide residue
• Over 99% of the samples tested had residues below the tolerances established by the EPA
• Less than 0.5% of samples tested contained residue levels exceeding acceptable levels
What is Done With the PDP Data?
• The PDP provides the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) & the EPA monthly reports of pesticide residue testing & informs the FDA if residues detected exceed the EPA tolerance or have no EPA tolerance established.
Who/What is the PDP?
• The PDP was established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), in 1991.
• The aim of the initiative is to collect and report high-quality data on pesticide residues in food (particularly those most likely consumed by infants & children) to confirm that the food consumers purchase for their families is safe.
• The PDP also tests foods for low levels of environmental contaminants that are no longer used in the United States, but due to their persistence in the environment (particularly in soil) can be taken up by plants.
Key Take Away from the 2016 Summary:
“Residues found in agricultural products sampled are at levels that DO NOT pose risk to consumers’ health and are safe according to the EPA,” per the USDA.
Eat on, friends!

Both white sugar and brown sugar are similar, nutritionally and also calorie-wise. The only difference lies in the flavour, colour and the process these both go through. Basically, brown sugar is white sugar with molasses and is considered as raw sugar majorly because it goes through lesser chemical processing as compared to white sugar.Because of its molasses content, brown sugar does contain certain minerals, most notably calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium whereas, white sugar contains none of these. But since these minerals are present in only minuscule amounts, there is no real health Molasses and brown sugar do contain more essential nutrients that white sugar, so choosing brown sugar over white is technically healthier. However, the amount of these essential nutrients you'd be getting from brown sugar is very small and won't do much to meet your daily nutrient needs. Furthermore, just like white sugar, molasses and brown sugar are added sugars that should be limited in your diet as much as possible to avoid unwanted weight gain and increased chronic disease risks.
