More Weight Loss Shake Recipes For Alameda

Orinda Chocolate Milkshake Diet I love the taste of the Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, however, sometimes I like to mix things up a bit and try new flavors. In Orinda, I use the Xocai weight loss shake as a base for making healthy high-antioxidant Alameda diet smoothies. You can download additional Xocai ProteinMeal recipes from the MXI Chocolate website.

Here are some of the Weight Loss Smoothie recipes and my local Alameda Xocai chocolate shake review. Each recipe needs to be blended thoroughly in a blender or food processor.

The Xo and Tell: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup X ProteinMeal Shake, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup chopped ice. Tastes like a seven dollar Alameda juice bar smoothie but much healthier.

X Mocha Frappe: 1 cup cold black coffee, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, 1 cup chopped ice, 2 fresh mint leaves. Alameda coffee lovers will enjoy this high antioxidant version. The mint gives it an interesting twist.

The X Monkey: 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, 1 TB chunky peanut butter, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup chopped ice. If you are a Alameda PB fan, you’ll this concoction. You can find Orinda almond milk at Albany health food stores or at Canyon grocery stores with large health food sections.

The Chocolate Orange Cream-sicle: 6 ounces water, 1/2 cup MXI Chocolate ProteinMeal Shake, 2 ounces almond milk, 1 banana, 1 cup chopped ice, 2 drops orange essential oil. Tastes like a Orinda Roxberry Orange Creamsicle smoothie. This flavor made me very nostalgic–I used to live on creamsicles all summer long as a child. The banana boosts the potassium content.

Xo-Good: 1/2 cup water, 1/2 orange juice, 4 chunks frozen mango, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup Xocai Weight Loss Shake. If you are a Alameda mango freak, you will find this mango-licious.

Give me a call if you are interested in losing weight without feeling empty or hungry. The Xocai Protein Shake is a terrific way to do it!

I love the xocai healthy chocolate!!

Jeanette L. Brooks and the Xocai Story From Alameda

Jeanette L. Brooks and the Xocai Story For the past two decades, MXI founder Jeanette L. Brooks has been winning over skeptics who initially did not believe her bold claim that chocolate can actually be good for you. With the success of her Xocai line of healthy chocolates, she has unequivocally demonstrated that dark chocolate can indeed ENHANCE YOUR HEALTH.

If you are near Alameda, California and want to learn more about healthy chocolate, contact me by completing my Contact Me Form. I work in the Orinda area, but will be happy to speak with you over the phone if you are farther away.

Jeanette’s motivation to sell healthy dark chocolate was very personal. After being diagnosed with diabetes in 1991, she began a quest to research and develop delicious and satisfying chocolate food products that can be incorporated into a sensible diet and active lifestyle. Jeanette was already a successful entrepreneur, having founded Yurika Foods Corporation and Phoenix International Corporation. After the life-changing diabetes diagnosis, she founded Pure De-lite, which manufactured low-carb sugar-free chocolate products. Under Jeanette’s leadership, Pure De-lite sales eventually topped 300 million.

MXI is Jeanette’s current venture. In creating Pure De-Lite’s and MXI’s offerings, Jeanette led research teams that developed the processes and formulations that make dark chocolate health-promoting. You see, it is not the cacao that is bad, it is the high-fat milk products, refined sugar and wax that is added to the cacao to create the ubiquitous milk chocolate that is found in chocolate candy products.

MXI food scientists paired acai berry, one of nature’s most antioxidant-dense fruits, with dark chocolate. But it is not just the acai berry that makes Xocai chocolate unequaled; the cold-press manufacturing process used at MXI is also revolutionary. In fact, MXI has patented it. The primary value of the cold-press method is that it does not remove the antioxidants from the cacao as is the case with traditional processing methods.

Jeanette takes special satisfaction in knowing that Xocai chocolate is not only an occasional treat, but a guilt-free staple for fellow diabetics. Thousands of Xocai believers have shared their success stories. Following is an endorsement from a Xocai fan:

“I am looking forward to a lifetime of great health with deliciously healthy chocolate in spite of the fact that I am a diabetic! My husband also enjoys healthy chocolate with Acai at least three times a day. He has replaced glucosamine and other antioxidant products he was using for aching legs and knees and has discovered incredible results of his own. We are indeed headed for a happy retirement while sharing this product with others so that they may experience great health of their own.”

Jeanette markets Xocai products through the Direct Selling model. Thousands of independent MXI distributors like me are thriving in this uncertain economy thanks to the vision and dedication of a truly remarkable businesswoman.

Choose Healthy Kids Snacks In Alameda

Choose Healthy Kids Snacks In Alameda My name is Derrick Winkel and I am a children’s health advocate in Alameda, California. Most California parents notice behavioral effects when they feed their kids highly processed foods full of sugar and additives.

Orinda elementary teachers advise sending fruit, vegetables, and protein in children’s lunches and leaving processed, sugary snacks at home. They notice that Alameda children who eat healthy learn and behave better.

When shopping at your Orinda grocery store you may want to start reading labels on snacks more carefully. A recent study conducted by Britain’s Food Standards Agency (their version of the FDA) found that seven dyes could affect children’s intelligence by up to five IQ points! When reading California food labels check for Yellow #5, Yellow #6, and Red #40. In fact, Red #40 is banned in several European countries.

Red #40 is banned in several European countries.

My kids love dried apricots, raisins, sliced apples with sunflower seed butter, and snap peas. If you would like more information on improving your Alameda child’s health and nutrition through healthy snacking please contact me today! – See ya

New Crib Guidelines For Orinda Parents

New Crib Guidelines For Orinda Parents

First time Orinda parents have many issues to deal with as they prepare for the arrival of their little one, but nothing is more important than crib safety. The federal government has issued new guidelines for crib manufacturers.

As of June 28, 2011, all cribs manufactured and sold in Orinda and nationally must meet the new standards. The guidelines also apply to used cribs that are resold. Deadly drop-side rail cribs are now prohibited. The new rules also affect crib slat strength, mattress supports, hardware and the amount of testing required.

The new crib guidelines can be found at:

RIF in Canyon?

Canyon online business I am intrigued and inspired by the way some Canyon people respond to financial challenges.

I have seen Canyon friends whose jobs were outsourced waste no time and retrain for new careers even though they were close to retirement age.

I’ve heard of executive level Canyon businessmen and women who, after finding themselves ‘RIFed,’ take much lower paying positions to support their families.

I’ve heard of entrepreneurs who lost their homes build a small business that allowed them to buy another, nicer Canyon home in just a few years.

I’ve even heard of Canyon stay-at-home moms start online businesses that eventually generated an income larger than their husbands’ earnings at the pinnacle of his career.

If you are sinking financially but have not yet found a solution, I invite you to learn about my Canyon business. I sell Xobiotic Squares and Xocai XoBiotic Squares online and in the Canyon area.

Starting your own business for the first time can be overwhelming. I remember how apprehensive I was. Fortunately, I received all the tools and support promised to me when I signed up as a new Xobiotic Squares distributor. That has also been the experience of the Xocai XoBiotic Squares distributors in my network–because I have provided the same attentive mentoring! (It’s hard to be humble when your Xocai XoBiotic Squares team is breaking sales records.)

If you are trying to cope with a financial reversal, let me help you turn things around with Xobiotic Squares.

I hold Xobiotic Squares meetings at My MXI Website in Alameda. If you join my Xobiotic Squares sales team, I pledge to provide you all the support and business tools you will need to succeed.

Homemade Heat Pack For Orinda Kids

Homemade Heat Pack For Orinda Kids

Orinda parents are great at helping their children stay healthy and safe. Today on the Alameda Children’s Health Blog, we wanted to give parents another way to help their kids: homemade heat packs. These easy-to-make heat packs are great for growing pains, sore muscles, or just some extra coziness at bedtime.

To start, simply go to any fabric store in the Albany, Alameda, or Canyon area and choose some fabric (actually, you could even use an old t-shirt, fabric scraps, or a sock you have lying around). Cut two layers of the fabric one inch bigger than the desired size of the heat pack you would like for your child. A long rectangular shape is usually best.

Next, starting with one of the long sides, sew along the edges making sure to leave room for the seam allowance. Leave one short end open and fill the bag 2/3 full of rice. You can add a few drops of essential oil or herbs (these can be found at most Alameda natural food stores) to give the heat pack a pleasant odor for your child. Tie the bag off at the open end with some cotton string, or stitch it shut, and you’re done!

When your ready to use it, be safe by only heating it in the microwave for one minute. Check to see if it’s warm enough, then add time in short increments from there. If your kids prefer a cold pack in the summer, these bags can go in the freezer to chill for a spell.

If you want to get extra fancy, any Albany, Alameda, or Canyon fabric store would have interesting trimmings to add. But remember to avoid ribbons that have metal wire in them.

Healthy, happy Orinda kids and their parents can be comfortable all year long with these quick and easy heat packs!

My name is Derrick Winkel and I love to help California parents with Orinda children’s preventative health care and nutrition. If you are in the Orinda area and would like to learn more about kids health or Xocai XoBiotic Squares, call me today at 801.437.5984!

Xocai Weight Loss Shake For Alameda California

Alameda Chocolate Diet What is more refreshing than a Xocai X ProteinMeal Shake? A Xocai X ProteinMeal Shake mixed with other delicious ingredients. If you are using the Xocai Protein Shake for weight-loss, you may want to try some shake variations to keep your taste buds motivated.

All of these recipes require a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.

The Xo-Buzz: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Weight Loss Shake, 1/2 cup chopped ice, 1 TB liqueur of your choice, (Baileys Irish Cream, Grand Marnier, Amaretto) Kahlua gives it an iced-cappuccino taste-yum!

Kiwi Go Now: 1/2 cup unfiltered apple juice, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup Xocai diet shake mix, 1 kiwi, washed with ends trimmed (keep the skin on), ice cubes. The tart flavor of kiwi is counter-balanced by the sweet apple juice.

Ice Kickers: 1 cup ice, 1/2 cup Xocai chocolate protein shake, 1 TB real bee honey, 1 Tsp cinnamon, 1 banana or flavor of choice, 1/2 bottle water. Add the honey last after blending the other ingredients to prevent the honey from clogging and sticking to the blades. Honey, cinnamon, and banana are a winning combo!

If you have been thinking about starting a diet program, consider the the Xocai Weight Loss Protocol. By replacing two meals a day with the Xocai X ProteinMeal Shake, you can lose weight without feel hungry or weak. The Xocai weight-loss shakes provide balanced nutrition and energizing protein and carbs.

One of the successful dieters who participated in the first Xocai Weight Loss Trial said:

“By replacing two meals per day with the XProtein Shake, eating healthy snacks and having a sensible meal, my weight has melted away.” -Prosper magazine, Winter 2011 issue, p. 20.
