Keto BHB Max by Zen Naturally- Review

By: Melissa Baker

I wanted to share with you about a product called Keto BHB Max by Zen Naturally. I am not on the Keto diet, nor have I ever tried it. But I have had the opportunity to try this dietary supplement. It advertises that it will give you energy, assist with weight loss/burns fat, and has BHB Ketones. The directions say you are to take 2 capsules once a day, 30 minutes before a meal. This bottle has 60 capsules, which is a 30 day supply.
I have only been on it for about 2 weeks, so I haven't noticed any weight loss (or gain for that matter). But I have noticed a slight increase in energy. I used to absolutely have to have a nap with my 5 year old just about every afternoon. However, when I am on this, I notice that I don't even think about a nap. So it basically takes the edge off of my exhaustion.

Overall, nothing has changed except the little bit of energy I have noticed. Again, I have only taken it for the last 2 weeks, so if I continue to take it, it may produce the other results I was hoping for, and that this product is supposed to provide. And my body may react differently than others, so results may vary. Just for the energy factor alone, I would recommend at least trying it for a month or so, to see how your body reacts.

You can find out more or order your own Keto Max here or here.

Have a great day!

Vegan: Mexican Vegan Diet For Beginners- Review

By: Melissa Baker

I have always wondered what the vegan diet and lifestyle was all about. I have vegan friends, and they seem to have mastered the lifestyle. I have always thought that being a vegan meant that you had a very boring and limited diet. But after digging deeper and reading this recipe book, there are many tasty options and recipes for the vegan diet. In this book, there are many recipes that will suite the needs of people with a vegan diet. There are delicious, and healthy recipes in this book and I look forward to trying them. If you are interested in learning more about vegan food, I would highly recommend getting this book. It is perfect for beginners or people wanting a taste of the vegan lifestyle. This book has all kinds of Mexican food for vegans including: salsas, breakfasts, soups, salads, snacks, main course meals, and desserts. My mouth is watering just by thinking about these recipes. YUM!

About The Book:

Being a vegan in the modern world is seen to be a monotonous and lifeless existence. A common misconception is that the vegan diet is synonymous with bland food without much room for desserts, let alone exotic flavors! Well, these all are nothing but misguided opinions and are absolutely not true!

With the advent of several dairy-free options such as soy milk, almond milk, soy yogurt etc, being a vegan has become easier. It is actually very much possible to lead a healthy, complete vegan lifestyle with very little inconvenience. You can enjoy all your favorite desserts, ethnic cuisines etc without compromising on your way of life.

This book is on Vegan Mexican recipes. Mexican food is among the most popular ethnic foods in the USA and is also gaining popularity across the globe. The variety of spices, herbs, condiments and desserts have long been loved in America.

Mexican cuisine is extremely luscious and eccentric. It's a fusion of recipes from many different nations, especially those that have a predominantly Spanish-speaking population. The Mexican cuisine is famous for its unique and tasteful style. The recipes mentioned in this book have been made keeping in mind this essence of Mexican cuisine. You'll definitely find the fiery deliciousness that generally accompanies Mexican cuisine in all the recipes. Hence, we have tried our best to make sure that the vegan Mexican cuisine still has the general lusciousness that we associate with the non-vegan version. There are a large variety of recipes that have been mentioned in this book that are enough to cater to all of your needs. You don't have to follow that same old vegan diet anymore; you can cook up a new cuisine every day. You can experiment and enjoy making food that you will surely love.

Here's What's Included In This Book

  • 10 of the best Vegan Salsa and Guacamole recipes

Mended- Book Review and Giveaway!!

For my entire life, I have had a pretty good relationship with my mother. I have always loved and cherished our relationship and we continue to be close, even as we get older. But I do realize that mothers and daughters don't always get along the way my mother and I have. I have learned to never take that for granted. However, Something about this book drew me in and I was very interested in reading this amazing book. Even though I have never had to restore my relationship with my own mother, I feel more equipped to help others who are struggling, now having read this book. It truly is a wonderful tool for mothers and daughters to restore their hearts and mend their relationships. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a mother, daughter or both! 

About the Book:

This magnificent duo has created a safe and logical space for readers to take practical steps toward restoring and enhancing their mother/daughter relationship. No matter how good or fragile the relationship is, change starts with an earnest prayer. Blythe and Helen say, "As a first step, we invite you to acknowledge that you want a different future. Don't focus on how yet. Just tell God you want to make things better between you and you need His power to do so."

In each chapter of Mended they focus on some of the most sensitive topics that have fractured mother/daughter relationships and share how to take a pivotal step in the right direction. They have pulled from their triumphs and generational trials, plus some relatable stories from some of their friends, to offer some key concepts for restoration. A few of their suggestions are to value the relationship over being right, only be responsible for your own thoughts and words - not hers, to love who she is becoming - not focusing so much on who she was, and extending forgiveness even if she has not asked for it. All of these lift the mantle of heaviness over your heart.

And now for the giveaway!!

Apollo 11 Movie- In Theaters Now!

By: Melissa Baker

Apollo 11 is now showing in theaters all over America! I personally cannot wait to go see it. I am really looking forward to seeing the never before seen footage mentioned in the trailer of the movie. I know it will not disappoint. I absolutely love history and this movie looks really interesting to me. So, join me in going out to your local theater and seeing this amazing movie. 

The History of the Apollo Space Program:

Apollo,  a project conducted by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the 1960s and ’70s that landed the first humans on the Moon.
In May 1961 Pres. John F. Kennedy committed America to landing astronauts on the Moon by 1970. The choice among competing techniques for achieving a Moon landing and return was not resolved until considerable further study. Three methods were considered. In direct ascent, one vehicle would lift off from Earth, land on the Moon, and return. However, the proposed Nova rocket would not be ready by 1970. In Earth orbit rendezvous, a spacecraft carrying the crew would dock in Earth orbit with the propulsion unit that would carry enough fuel to go to the Moon. However, this method required two separate launches.
In the method ultimately employed, lunar orbit rendezvous, a powerful launch vehicle (Saturn V rocket) placed a 50-ton spacecraft in a lunar trajectory. The spacecraft had three parts. The conical command module (CM) carried three astronauts. The service module (SM) was attached to the back of the CM and carried its fuel and power to form the command/service module (CSM). Docked to the front of the CSM was the lunar module (LM). One astronaut stayed in the CSM while the other two landed on the Moon in the LM. The LM had a descent stage and an ascent stage. The descent stage was left on the Moon, and the astronauts returned to the CSM in the ascent stage, which was discarded in lunar orbit. The LM was flown only in the vacuum of space, so aerodynamic considerations did not affect its design. (Thus, the LM has been called the first “true” spacecraft.) Before reentering Earth’s atmosphere, the SM was jettisoned to burn up. The CM splashed down in the ocean. The lunar orbit rendezvous had the advantages of requiring only one rocket and of saving fuel and mass since the LM did not need to return to Earth.

Uncrewed missions testing Apollo and the Saturn rocket began in February 1966. The first crewed Apollo flight was delayed by a tragic accident, a fire that broke out in the Apollo 1 spacecraft during a ground rehearsal on January 27, 1967, killing astronauts Virgil GrissomEdward White, and Roger Chaffee. NASA responded by delaying the program to make changes such as not using a pure oxygenatmosphere at launch and replacing the CM hatch with one that could be opened quickly.

In October 1968, following several uncrewed Earth-orbit flights, Apollo 7 made a 163-orbit flight carrying a full crew of three astronauts. Apollo 8 carried out the first step of crewed lunar exploration: from Earth orbit it was injected into a lunar trajectory, completed lunar orbit, and returned safely to Earth. Apollo 9 carried out a prolonged mission in Earth orbit to check out the LM. Apollo 10 journeyed to lunar orbit and tested the LM to within 15.2 km (9.4 miles) of the Moon’s surface. Apollo 11, in July 1969, climaxed the step-by-step procedure with a lunar landing; on July 20 astronaut Neil Armstrong and then Edwin (“Buzz”) Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the Moon’s surface.

Apollo 13, launched in April 1970, suffered an accident caused by an explosion in an oxygen tank but returned safely to Earth. Remaining Apollo missions carried out extensive exploration of the lunar surface, collecting 382 kg (842 pounds) of Moon rocks and installing many instruments for scientific research, such as the solar wind experiment and the seismographic measurements of the lunar surface. Beginning with Apollo 15, astronauts drove a lunar rover on the Moon. Apollo 17, the final flight of the program, took place in December 1972. In total, 12 American astronauts walked on the Moon during the six successful lunar landing missions of the Apollo program.
