Buckwheat is best source of high-quality, easily digestible proteins and is close to being a "complete" protein. Add this hearty fruit to your meals as a way to keep off the pounds while eating healthy. High protein buckwheat flour is being studied for possible use in foods to reduce plasma cholesterol, body fat, and cholesterol gallstones. Buckwheat starch can also act as a fat alternative in processed foods. Buckwheat is a very good source of manganese and a good source of copper, dietary fiber, and phosphorus.

Words of Inspiration

     

The Power of Words

Words captivate and control the human emotions. They anger us, they make us rejoice, they make us cry, and they make us hope. We're constantly judging our happiness based on the words given from someone.

Words not used in the correct way bring wreck, havoc, and disharmony to those whom the words are fired towards. However, one good, edifying word brings joy and hope to those who need it most. The ways words are said reveal the condition of the heart and the status of the circumstance. When used correctly, words have the power to change the world. Words are attached to the soul; they are a member of us. The word goes from the page and infuses into our inmost being.

If you want to change your life and destiny, consciously choose the words to describe your emotional state.
