Guilt-Free Chocolate in Delta

   Posted by: Phil    in Healthy Chocolate, Xocai

Guilt-Free Chocolate in Delta Jeanette L. Brooks of Xocai rejects the conventional wisdom about chocolate. While most people around Vancouver have accepted without question the idea that chocolate is the very antithesis of a healthy food, Jeanette decided to leverage the fact that chocolate is healthy, and created the world’s first healthy chocolate company.

Jeanette acknowledges that traditional chocolate candy sold in Richmond and Surrey convenience stores is bad for us. It contains tropical oils, refined sugar, wax and a host of artificial flavors and colors. In fact, the chocolate we have all grown up with has very little actual chocolate.

Jeanette decided to find a way to create healthy antioxidant chocolate. Jeanette aimed high. She didn’t set out to merely create a health-neutral chocolate; one that, though not harmful, was not exactly beneficial. She was determined to formulate a truly healthy chocolate.

It wasn’t easy. Jeanette and Xocai co-founder Andrew Brooks circled the globe researching cacao growers and chocolate processing operations. They discovered that the cacao bean with the highest concentration of antioxidants is grown in the Republic of Ivory Coast, Africa.

In order to transform the cacao bean into a delicious health-enhancing food, it was necessary to develop a process that did not require harmful additives. This was a significant hurdle. One of the main reasons that traditional chocolate is so bad for us is because harmful ingredients are used to process the super-healthy cacao bean. These ingredients are used as emulsifiers, preservatives, flavorings and cheap fillers.

Jeanette and her team invented a cold-press method that is unique to Xocai weight-loss chocolate. This processing method makes it possible to transform the cacao bean into an edible form that retains all the nutrients without adding the adverse ingredients.

Is your mouth watering for a dark chocolate treat? Call 604.943.8598 to order Xocai in Vancouver and the surrounding areas.

Empty calories? Taboo for diabetics? Artery-clogging? With Xocai healthy chocolate, sometimes called ‘New York Times chocolate‘, you can forget everything you ever learned about the world’s favorite food. You can eat Xocai chocolate to your hearts content with zero guilt. And when you lick the creamy chocolate off the tips of your fingers, you can thank Jeanette for that moment of bliss.

Fun Family Business In Vancouver

   Posted by: Phil    in Healthy Chocolate, Home Business

Fun Family Business In Vancouver Remember the days in Delta when family businesses were everywhere? Did you ever visit a small grocery store where Mom, Dad, and kids worked together to stock shelves, sell product, and sweep the floor? Seasonal fruit stands, restaurants, handicraft boutiques, and dry cleaning establishments also attracted enterprising families in the Vancouver area. You don’t see as many family businesses these days.

I have a large Peanut Butter Cups network where the family business is alive and well.

Many of my affiliates have turned their Peanut Butter Cups organizations into family businesses. They utilize all of their family members’ talents: website management, order processing, online marketing, and customer service. Running an MLM is a great way to help kids develop a good work ethic and learn business skills.

My family is happier since I became a Activ, the healthy chocolate beverage business owner in Vancouver. When my network grew large enough for me to quit my day job, my spouse and kids celebrated.

A Healthy Toothbrush For Delta Kids

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

A Healthy Toothbrush For Delta Kids

As a parent of active Delta children, I’m sure you’re always on the lookout for places where germs lurk, and you probably know that toothbrushes have the potential to grow a lot of bacteria. However, there are some simple rules you can follow in your Richmond area home to keep your child’s toothbrush (and your kid’s mouth) as healthy as possible.

One of the best ways to limit bacterial growth on a toothbrush is to allow it to dry completely between uses. This is best done by storing the toothbrush in a toothbrush holder on the counter, not tucked away in a drawer where air flow is limited.

A toothbrush holder is superior to a cup because it’s important that neighboring toothbrushes don’t touch and share germs.

Air drying toothbrushes is easy when you purchase two for each child at your nearest Vancouver drugstore. Teach your kids to alternate between the two so they each have more time to dry out all the way.

Toothbrushes should be replaced every three to four months, mainly because normal wear and tear will make them less effective at cleaning teeth. But, regardless of the age of the toothbrush, replace it after your child has a cold or other illness.

If you have any other questions about your child’s oral health, ask your Delta dentist, or speak to your pediatrician next time you take your child in for immunizations in Delta.

I’m Phil Hoskins and children’s health is very important to me. I am the owner of a terrific Delta home business that sells a nutritional chocolate product. If you are interested in learning more, visit my website at http://philhoskins.com/more-about-xocai or give me a call at 604.943.8598.

Healthy Delta Pantries For Healthy Delta Kids

Healthy Delta Pantries For Healthy Delta Kids

Parents in the Langley, Surrey, and Richmond area want healthy, happy kids, but it can sometimes feel like you’re fighting a losing battle trying to get your kids to eat right.

One way to ensure your family makes good food choices is to shop and stock your pantry with healthy food in mind. Before you head out to your local Vancouver super market, sit down and make a healthy shopping list. Even if you are confident that you know what you need, taking the time to write it out will help you plan meals, make healthy choices, and avoid impulse buys.

Once you are in the store, stick to your list and pick up the healthy items first. Fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and dairy are usually located around the perimeter of Langley, Surrey, and Richmond super markets, so circle the store first before you head to the processed and preserved foods in the center aisles.

Your pantry should be stocked with healthy staples for meals your kids will eat. Make sure that your kids can easily get to healthy, quick snacks like nuts, whole-grain crackers, and dried fruit.

And don’t forget the fridge! Healthy snacks should be at eye-level for your children. Sliced fruit, bite-sized veggies, yogurt, string cheese, berries, and other fresh foods are great snack options for healthy, active (and busy!) Delta kids.

I’m Phil Hoskins and children’s health is very important to me. I am the owner of a home business in Delta that sells Peanut Butter Cups. If you are in the Vancouver area and are interested in learning more, or want to order Peanut Butter Cups, call me today at 604.943.8598, or visit my web site at http://philhoskins.com/more-about-xocai.

Computer Tips For Delta Kids

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Computer Tips For Delta Kids

If your Delta children are anything like mine, they love to spend time on the computer. Instead of hopping on their bike and zipping over to V4M 1Z9 to talk to their friends they would rather email or Facebook them. When I was growing up in Vancouver, we used cans tied together with yarn to communicate from tree house to tree house and as far as mail went we used good old snail mail.

My name is Phil Hoskins and this is my blog where I advocate for Delta children’s health and talk about Peanut Butter Cups. Today we will discuss the importance of teaching our BC kids safe habits to govern their computer time to help prevent injury.

Delta parents and caregivers need to regulate children’s computer usage
. Moderation is the key. My kids would sit in front of the computer all day if I let them, but we set the timer for 30 minutes and then it is time to choose another activity, like enjoying the Delta sunshine. By taking breaks the muscles used while computing are able to mend and repair themselves so that they are less likely to become injured.

Kids need to vary the ways they operate the computer so that different muscles get used. Instead of manipulating a mouse for every command, teach them to use a touch pad. Many Vancouver software stores sell voice activated systems which allow kids to switch up how they work at the computer to allow different muscles to work. Encourage your kids to take breaks to stretch and even shut their eyes for a few moments.

BC parents should coach their children on the proper way to sit at the computer. Posture is very important and should be loose and inherent, not stiff or unnatural. The habits we teach our BC kids will serve them throughout their lives.

Healthy habits for BC kids include eating nutritious food and exercising daily. For more information about keeping your kids healthy contact me today.
