|The potatoe's reputation as a high-carb, white starch has removed it from the meals of many who are trying to lose weight. Did you know that potatoes are actually very healthful and can fit into even the most calorie-conscious eating plan? They are not only fat and cholesterol free but are also rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, vitamin C and potassium. The key is to choose toppings carefully. Top with low-fat, low-calorie options such as salsa, chopped veggies, herbs, beans, nonfat sour cream or low-fat shredded cheese.|

|Experiencing The Different Vibrational Energy of Ireland|
|I am still in vibrational awe of all that I was able to experience on our Celtic Angel Tour in Ireland. I would like to share some of my personal favourites and some shifts of energy for me. First I would like to state that my vibrational energy is changed. It would be impossible, I belief, to keep my energy the same after visiting some of the Sacred Sights & historical ruins in Ireland. I am in gratitude to have witnessed how other people on the tour experienced different sights we visited. Regardless of experience in working with energy, everyone at some point shared their own AWE. |

Health Benefits of Turkey is that is a lean meat and is a very good source of protein. A four ounce serving provides 65% of the daily value for protein, along with 11% of the daily value for saturated fat, about half the amount of saturated fat found in red meat. The structure of the human body is built on protein. We use animal and plant sources of protein for our amino acids and rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require. Turkey is a very good source of selenium, B vitamin and niacin.
