Why is the Xocai Protein Bar Superior?

Phoenix Antioxidant Protein Bar Are you a Las Vegas protein bar eater?

If so, you are probably more health-conscious than the average Joe. Otherwise, you would just have a Snickers, right?

Protein bars usually deliver more protein and contain less fat than candy bars. However, there is a Phoenix chocolate protein bar that is clearly superior. The Xocai Healthy Chocolate Protein bar has the greatest concentration of antioxidants of all protein bars sold in Henderson. And that’s not all. The Xocai bar is low-calorie, low fat, and high fiber.

Not all Xocai Protein Bar fans are hard-core athletes. It is a multi-purpose health bar enjoyed in different ways by different types of Phoenix MXI chocolate consumers. I have Las Vegas Xocai clients who eat the Xocai Protein Bar as a low-calorie, high-energy, weight-loss bar. It tastes so much better than Slim Fast and NutriSystem.

Smart Portland parents keep Xocai Protein bars in the car for their children to snack on. Who says your kids have to eat low-fiber Goldfish crackers and high-sugar fruit snacks?

Some of my Henderson Xocai customers who leave the house in a rush eat the Xocai protein bar for their early morning meal. Most breakfast bars, granola bars, cereal bars, and fruit bars do not have enough protein to adequately replace a meal.

And it goes without saying that the Xocai Protein Bar is a wiser choice than doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, or croissants. Ditto for the Egg McMuffin, Burger Kings’ Croissan’Wich, and Subway’s Cheese Breakfast Sandwich. (If you want to lose your appetite, read the fat, sodium, and calorie content information for these popular fast-food breakfasts.)

To try the Xocai Antioxidant Chocolate Protein Bar or Power Squares, call me today. We can also discuss the incredible Xocai financial opportunity.

How To Cite Sources On Your Las Vegas Home Business Blog

How To Cite Sources On Your Las Vegas Home Business Blog I mentor several Las Vegas entrepreneurs who have online home business blogs. Some of these home business owners are new to the online marketplace and are learning the principles of small business blogging. Today’s Las Vegas article explains how to cite third-party information in your home business blog.

Generally, it is permissible to include third-party information as long as you include a source reference. For example, if I wanted to include an excerpt from an article about a Power Squares research study, I would cite the name of the article, the journal, the author, and the date. If I accessed it from a website, I would include that also.

Here is an example from webmd.com. The article: ‘Dark Chocolate Takes a Bite Out of Stress’ by Jennifer Warner is about a study conducted at the Nestle Research Center in Lausanne Switzerland. At the end of the article, the following paragraph is included: ‘The study appears in the Journal of Proteome Research and was conducted by researchers at the Nestle Research Center in Lausanne, Switzerland.’

Qualityhealth.com included an article by Tabby Biddle that also cites the Swiss study and several others. They cited their sources at the end of the article in the following format:

American Chemical Society. New evidence that dark chocolate helps ease emotional stress. ScienceDaily. http://www.sciencedaily.com  /releases/2009/11/091111123612.htm. Accessed Dec. 7, 2009.

If you want to include material that is licensed, follow the appropriate procedure to obtain permission outlined by the owners of the content. Then be sure to let your readers know that you have permission by saying: ‘Reprinted by permission of so-and-so.’ Las Vegas home business bloggers who reprint information without permission damage their credibility and run the risk of legal action.

I am Las Vegas entrepreneur coach Karin Peterson. I own a Power Squares business based in my Las Vegas home. I advise new Las Vegas Power Squares home business owners on sales, marketing, and recruiting.

If you want to own your own Las Vegas online business but need some guidance to get started, give me a call at 702-806-0150. I will make sure your Las Vegas home business hits the ground running.

All-Natural Energy Drink

Henderson Dark Chocolate I am Karin Peterson, a Chocoholic in Las Vegas. I am excited to tell you about Xocai Activ drink.

Of course the ingredients in Xocai Activ drink are nutritional powerhouses: unprocessed cacao, acaí berries, blueberries and concord grapes. (I would expect no less from Xocai, the original antioxidant chocolate company.) However, what Activ does not contain is equally important.

Xocai Activ has NO:

  • Added colors
  • Artificial flavors
  • Preservatives

Xocai has formulated Activ for the Las Vegas purist who wants an all-natural energy drink with the highest antioxidant content of any drink sold in Las Vegas.

Even though Activ contains no preservatives, you don’t have to worry about it spoiling. It is sold in powdered form which keeps for a year without losing its nutritional value. To make a delicious chocolate health drink, add ten ounces of warm water to the Activ powder and shake well. Then add eleven ounces of cold water and refrigerate overnight. Some of my Phoenix Activ drinkers like their shake a little thicker so they add slightly less water.

My active Portland and Henderson Activ lovers who are always on the go appreciate the fact that Activ dark chocolate drink comes in powdered form. It is lighter than bottles or cans of liquid and takes less space in a backpack or suitcase.

Activ is the ultimate antioxidant beverage for the active Henderson lifestyle!

If you would like an Activ Xocai review or information about other Xocai products such as Power Squares, come join me at my next Las Vegas Xocai meeting.

Call me at 702-806-0150 or email me at lovemyhealthychocolate@gmail.com and I will let you know the time and place and answer any questions you may have about Xocai antioxidant chocolate.

Aging Boomers Spur Booming Health Industry In Las Vegas

Las Vegas Low Risk Home Based Business There are over 39 million Americans in the 65+ age group; about 13 percent of the population. By 2030, this number will increase to 72 million. (seniorcaremarketer.com). According to Senior Journal, about seven out of ten senior citizens are worried about their health.

The Centers for Disease Control reported that more than 40 percent of people aged 50 – 64 said they have problems with at least one of nine physical functions. (MSNBC on Baby Boomers). Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease are the biggies.

Xocai healthy chocolate products can help protect Portland men and women from health threats. Xocai chocolate is a rich source of antioxidants. Antioxidants counter free radical cell damage which is linked to most age-related diseases.

I like this description of free radical damage found in an article from the Harvard School of Public Health:

“Free radicals come in many shapes, sizes, and chemical configurations. What they all share is a voracious appetite for electrons, stealing them from any nearby substances that will yield them. This electron theft can radically alter the “loser’s” structure or function.

Free radical damage can change the instructions coded in a strand of DNA. It can make a circulating low-density lipoprotein (LDL, sometimes called bad cholesterol) molecule more likely to get trapped in an artery wall. Or it can alter a cell’s membrane, changing the flow of what enters the cell and what leaves it.”

Antioxidant products are being snapped up by Las Vegas people who are concerned about age-related health conditions. This trend will only increase as Portland baby boomers get older.

You can own your own Henderson health business that sells the best-tasting antioxidant product on the market: Xocai antioxidant chocolate. Call me to find out how.

What Is The Las Vegas Health Chocolate Story?

Henderson Passive Income Brunswick Laboratories, the leaders in antioxidant testing, have been very busy measuring ORAC values of Xocai healthy chocolate. MXI, makers of Xocai, sent samples of the new 2010 formulations of each of their products. That’s right; Xocai has made their antioxidant dark chocolate even healthier.

MXI has been posting graphs showing the results as they have become available. You can see The Whole Story on our corporate website. Check out the results for for Activ in the picture above.

What does this mean to a Las Vegas dark chocolate aficionado? Or a Phoenix chocoholic? A Portland hot cocoa connoisseur? How about a Henderson chocolate cookie monster?

It means that if you replace your unhealthy chocolate with Xocai antioxidant chocolate, you will feel better, physically and mentally. Xocai carries a product for every type of Henderson chocolate junkie.

If you are not sure which one you will like best, you may want to order Xocai’s ‘Best Sellers’ Variety Pack. It contains Nuggets, X Powersquares, Omega Squares and XoBiotic Squares.

Are you craving chocolate yet? Call me at 702-806-0150. I can hook you up with the most delicious health chocolate you have ever tasted!

Marie Osmond Loves Xocai Chocolate

Las Vegas Weight Loss Chocolate Note: Marie Osmond is not a Xocai spokesperson. This post references an article from 2010.

Because Xocai healthy chocolate is quickly gaining popularity in Las Vegas, many wanna-be healthy dark chocolate products are popping up. (This is yet another example of the fact that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.) Some of the healthy chocolate companies trying to get in on the action tout ‘high cocoa content’.

So what’s the deal with ‘high cocoa content‘? First off, high cocoa content does not necessarily guarantee a healthy Henderson chocolate product. If that product also contains a considerable amount of saturated fats, refined sugar, wax, and preservatives, ‘high cocoa content’ can mean very little; you have to know your chocolate.

Secondly, the cocoa powder used in virtually all chocolate products sold in Phoenix, Portland and Henderson has been stripped of its original nutrients. Remember, Xocai antioxidant chocolate is processed with a patented cold-press method that retains the nutrients in the manufacturing process. There is no weight-loss chocolate like Xocai because Xocai has a patent on the cold-press method.

“Numerous studies have confirmed the benefits of healthy, dark chocolate. Of course, it’s crucial that any chocolate be processed properly to maintain its nutrient and antioxidant content. The good news is that Xocai healthy chocolate products provide just that.”
-Dr. Steven Warren

Xocai recently received an enthusiastic endorsement from Marie Osmond who happens to eat Xocai chocolate daily. Would you like Marie promoting your business? I’m Karin Peterson, Chocoholic in Las Vegas. Contact me at 702-806-0150 or lovemyhealthychocolate@gmail.com to start a profitable antioxidant chocolate business in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas.

Rethinking Henderson Schools

Rethinking Henderson Schools Welcome to today’s Healthy Henderson Children blog. This site is dedicated to promoting children’s health in the Henderson area.

Unless you have been living in a cave for the last 20 years, you have heard about the obesity epidemic among U.S. children.

There are many worthwhile programs in the Henderson community that promote healthy eating habits and increased exercise for our youngest residents. I came across an interesting article last week that focused on how the design of schools can affect children’s health in general and obesity rates in particular.

‘Many schools were planned without thought given to how students can safely walk or ride their bikes to school. Playgrounds have been cut from budgets. An overemphasis on competitive sports has created a disproportionate amount of funding going to a select group of high profile sports, while minimizing the opportunities for the majority of students who desperately need exercise.’ Joel K. Sims, AIA, “Designing Schools To Fight Childhood Obesity,” School Designer, May 2007, http://www.schooldesigner.com/Articles/Designing-Schools-to-Fight-Childhood-Obesity-Part-1.asp, accessed on May 16, 2011

Here are some suggestions for making schools fitness-friendly:

  • Incorporate features of professional health clubs
  • Partner with community fitness centers to create multi-use facilities
  • Combine electronic entertainment and exercise
  • Incorporate movement into lesson plans

As we plan for new and renovated Henderson schools, let’s take our children’s fitness into consideration. As Henderson parents and educators, we can also promote lesson plans that incorporate movement. I also believe we need to look at how our tax dollars are spent. Do competitive sports programs in Nevada receive more than their fair share of available funds? Could we better use this money to provide exercise opportunities for all Henderson children?

I encourage you to raise awareness of these issues in your Nevada city. The only thing that will spur change is if parents, educators, and government leaders work together to lower the obesity rates in our Nevada communities.

More Weight Loss Shake Recipes For Las Vegas

Henderson 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 Henderson, I use the Xocai weight loss shake as a base for making healthy high-antioxidant Las Vegas 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 Las Vegas 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 Las Vegas 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. Portland 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 Las Vegas PB fan, you’ll this concoction. You can find Henderson almond milk at Henderson health food stores or at Phoenix 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 Henderson 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 Las Vegas 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!

Antioxidants Rule The World!
