Frozen green gems…

So many times I have had to throw out fruits and veggies that I never got to eat and what a waste of money that became. Well I came up with the perfect solution! The ones I don’t get to eat I now simply juice or you can put them in a bullet and then I simply pour the liquid into ice cube trays and freeze them. After I freeze them I place them into a freezer container and use them as needed. I like to use these power packed gems in my smoothies and my shakes. Ice cubes for me make them thicker so I always use them. This cuts down the cost of me having to buy organic additives like protein powder for my shakes and smoothies. It also does away with the waste! So I’m saving money while still eating organic. You’ve just gotta try this!

Food coop memberships…

There are ways to get your organic foods cheaper…by joining a coop! The one that I use is Bountifulbaskets. I go to the site and choose an organic basket for they have several different baskets to choose from. I then pay for it and print out my receipt and show on the day specified which is right up the street from me. Go to their website to see if they have one in your state and area. Nothing like treating your ms symptoms by eating healthy and organic!

Getting organic produce cheaper and how….

Sources said in a 2011 study, that the food prices of fourteen organics were, on the national level, 39% less at your local farmers market, than at your local super center. Although the farmer is not certified as being organic due to the high cost of doing so. He still may use non toxic practices, so it never hurts to get such information from him. You can also purchase a CSA share, which allows you to split the price and crops of a farmer’s yield. Every 7 days one will receive a container of produce. The share amount and price may differ, but in general, you can yield a size that definately will put food on the table for a two to three person family for under $20! The number of markets have grown over by 364% in the last 20 yrs. So it should be easy to locate a farmers market near you. Visit LOCALHARVEST.ORG for the ones  nearest to you. Eating organic and getting lots of your super green foods is one of the best ways to treat your ms and your ms symptoms.

Avonex, bipolar disorder, suicide, and the connection.

I had been doing some research on Bipolar disorder and MS. It seems to be common among those with MS to have both. Studys show that usually those that have both diseases, usually the Bipolar preceeds the ms diagnosis. With that being said, I can attest to the studies concerning these disorders and those who are taking Avonex. Avonex is a prescription drug to treat ms and is done by injection. A heed of warning on this however. If you are suffering with Bipolar disorder I would think twice of taking Avonex. A rare but definate side affect of Avonex is suicide. I found this out after taking it for a month. Not only did the flu like symptoms come but so did severe depression, followed by the feeling of wanting to die. My neuro got me off of it needless to say. So I would suggest doing your own research if you do indeed have Bipolar disorder, and are considering Avonex.
