2. Allow them to collect candy and have fun in the event, but tell them you still have to inspect the candy as always for any hidden dangers. What we do is get the candy home and then after inspection , allow them 5 pieces to indulge in.

Cranberry Juice 1/2 cup
What is a resveratrol?
Resveratrol is found in grapes, wine, grape juice, peanuts, and berries, including blueberries, bilberries, and cranberries. Resveratrol is found only in the skins of grapes. "Resveratrol has been found to inhibit the proliferation of a variety of human cancer cell lines, including those from breast, prostate, stomach, colon, pancreatic, and thyroid cancer". Published at Organ State University. It is also being said to have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Studies have also shown that resvertrols have antioxidant activities , which decreases oxidized stress in tissues that leads to cancer. With Cancer one of the top three killers in the United States, because of the diet and lifestyle we lead, increasing these specific items would be of great use.
I would plan to incorporate these in along with the omega 3's daily planner. We are past trying to eat well. We are now working in specific areas of health. To know what fruits and vegetables can help within the areas of our bodies we can identify when something feels off or not right.
That is why having vegetables and fruits as a major source of dietary intake helps fight disease and health problems. Every source of vitamin and minerals helps a specific area to give you better health.
At times we think that we have a disease of health problem due to parents having genes to that. Science is now showing that even though you may be PRON to those health risk, it is in your hands to stop it before it happens. Lets take diabetes as an example. If a parent had this, it does not mean you WILL. If you know it is a risk for you this is where you can increase and decrease certain foods to keep the door shut on this problem.
Being Proactive is the best way to keep you healthy. So often we are Reactive, we do something about it after we get the lab results in. At this stage the damage has been done and now you can only maintain a balance. Be Proactive and take control now to stay away from cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, stroke.

Soymilk 2 cups (16 ounces)
Flaxseed 2 tbsp
DHA eggs 2 eggs
pecans 1 handful
Tofu 1/2 cup raw tofu
Wheat germ 2 tbsp
Soybean oil 2 tbsp
Alaskan Halibut 3-4 ounces
Collard greens 1 cup steamed
Pumpkins seeds 1 handful
chunk light tuna 3-4 ounces
Soy nuts 1 handful
Sunflower seeds 1 handful
You have a few combinations to put together, and learning the combinations will be of great benefit to make sure you get these in. Try to make it second nature because that's what this mounts up to, life choices.
Benefits of omega 3 include lowering triglycerides (fats in our bodies we get from eating animal products and saturated fats) in the blood, lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate, and decreases the production of inflammatory chemicals produced by the body.
Omega 3 and 6's can not be produced by the body. These have to be incorporated in to the diet. Unfortunately processed foods such as white bread and white pastas contain higher levels of omega 6's that usually carry hydrogenated oils and increasing the disease causing trans fats. Limit these by increasing the omega 3's above and limiting the white carbs. When you create a environment in your body with omega 3's, its tougher to develop cancer, heart disease, muscular degeneration, obesity, cardiac arrhythmia, and decreased mental function.
Here are some ways to get them in beneficial daily combinations.
Wild salmon, spinach, walnuts, soymilk, flaxseed.
eggs, spinach, walnuts, tofu, wheat germ, soybeans.
Alaskan halibut, spinach, soymilk, flaxseed.
eggs, collard greens, pumpkin seeds, tofu, flaxseed.
Chunked tuna, soy nuts, flax seed,
eggs, spinach, walnuts, soymilk, wheat germ
These are a few ways you can incorporate them in a daily routin.

I have so enjoyed the Cleanse. It has given me the energy that I needed to start working out again, and its helped to detox the junk we eat from time to time. I must say even though I am a huge advocate of Organic fruits and vegetables, I am not always able to eat from the organic produce, we are limited there. So its very beneficial to do a cleanse to clean out toxin in the blood, colon, and tissues. When we cleanse you not only reset your metabolism, but your energy and emotions as well. There we days that I said to my husband, "wow, I just feel really happy, and I don't know why." Then I read that that's one of the things you notice when you detox.
If you have a bad diet, the normal American Diet, then you would want to do this cleanse every 3 months. It's recommend for at least every 6 months.
Here is the link that you can read more about it, but start soon. You would be doing your colon a favor.
There you can read about others that have done it, and what more to expect. Check it out.
Check out this clip to hear more about it and what it can do for you.
