10 Crazy Good Life Hack Ideas For Christmas To Make You Look Like A Star

I saw this video, “10 Life-Hacks For Christmas” and I was so impressed by the suggestions I just had to share.  My favorite ideas include a great idea for Christmas thank you cards, an amazing way to use your leftover toilet paper roll and aluminum foil and a way to make the best chocolate holiday drink for your friends and family that is over the top in how amazing it looks.

My family is fond of cocoa.  Actually that might be an understatement.  Our family loves cocoa!  The great idea in this Christmas video includes using shavings from dark chocolate on the top of your cocoa and whipped cream.  Talk about a decadent cup of hot cocoa!  Since I only keep healthy chocolate in the house, I will be using shavings from the Xocai nuggets.  I think that is a great idea and can’t wait to try it out.

ChocopiecesHopefully you will enjoy this short Christmas idea video as much as I did.  Don’t forget to hurry and order your Xocai healthy chocolates.  I recommend the Variety pack that comes with four individual boxes perfect for gift giving.  It works perfectly for hostess gifts and a gift for someone who has everything.  Even better Xocai chocolates are good for you, diabetic friendly, gluten free and low in calories.  No matter what the health issues of the recipient, it is more likely that they can enjoy your gift.

So hurry and order–plus grab a box of Nuggets for yourself.  They 0021are so good!  I am Lynette Henk, Gold Executive with XO Lifestyle Worldwide.  I share Xocai healthy chocolate products and Skinhealix anti-aging.  Call me at (877) 208-8172 or visit us at MyChocolateVitamins.com.

David Wolfe TED Lecture Shares Why You Want Cold Processed Raw Dark Chocolate Superfood

Chocolate is one of the most popular foods on the planet.  Did you know that chocolate actually comes from a nut?  Cacao or known as cocoa to us, offers vital nutrients.  Check out the video above by David Wolfe during his TED talk on his passion for chocolate.

Mr. Wolfe goes into detail about how chocolate is processed.  When chocolate is heated for days at high temperatures, it unfortunately loses many of the health benefits in the raw cacao.  Cold Processed or cold pressed chocolate is as close as you can get to raw dark chocolate.

xobiotic1My family eats Xocai healthy chocolate.  This healthy chocolate is made with a patented cold pressed process that keeps in the antioxidants making it a high antioxidant superfood.  Take care of yourself and eats lots of antioxidants which are known to reduce inflammation.  Inflammation causes over 200 diseases so anything you can do to reduce inflammation is key.

Keep Calm And Dark Chocolate On Says Laci Green Of D News: The Amazing Benefits Of Dark Chocolate

More News On Chocolate!

I saw this youtube clip of Laci Green of D News sharing her Ode to Dark Chocolate.  You simply must watch her clip about why dark chocolate is so good for you.  The key to remember is that the benefits she is referring to are found in abundance in cold pressed dark chocolate.  In addition to the percentage of dark chocolate, the processing of the chocolate is key.

Even better  Xocai healthy chocolate, my favorite, uses a patented process to cold press their chocolate leaving in the benefits of the raw cacao.  Their chocolates actually show the ORAC score, the amount of antioxidants and the amount of flavonoids in every product.  You won’t see that on most other chocolates for a reason.  You would be disappointed if you found out how much effect the cooking and dutching for 2-3 days to make the chocolate super smooth has on your favorite treat.  So do yourself a favor, and get yourself and those you love the best chocolate on the planet in my humble opinion.

Looking for a healthy Christmas gift idea or hostess gift?  I lynettebrandedrecommend ordering the variety pack for gifts.  Each variety pack box comes with four small boxes, perfect for gift giving.  Even better order some for yourself as preferred customers receive FREE SHIPPING and a free product after every third auto shipment for the first year.  I am all about the FREE so hurry and get yours today!

Deadline Is December 7th For Medicare Advantage Plans or Prescription Drug Plans in Florida

mxicruise 051Many individuals who qualify for Medicare are unaware that December 7th, 2014 is the deadline to make any changes to your policy.  This is especially important for those who choose a Medicare advantage plan or a prescription drug plan with traditional Medicare.

If you had a Medicare advantage plan for 2014 and are happy with it, don’t assume it will remain the same in 2015.  It is important that you double check your coverage, that your doctors are still part of the plan and that there are not significant changes to your prescription costs.  Depending on your area there may be many plans available.  These usually may include Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana Medicare, Aetna Medicare and AARP.  Included in the choices are HMO and PPO plans.

HMO plans require you to get your care through your primary care doctor.  When you need to see a specialist, it is this primary care doctor that must request it.  A PPO plan gives you a discount to stay in the network but still provides care at a reduced rate outside the network.  It also does not always require you to have a referral in order to see a specialist, giving you more flexibility.

You can compare up to three plans at once including your current Medicare or Medicare Advantage Plan at Medicare.gov.  This is a great resource and an easy way to compare co-pays, prescription medication costs, hospital stay, out patient stay information and more.  Remember time is of the essence.  Don’t assume there will be no changes from year to year.  It is always best to double check.  You still have time, so do it now.

I am Lynette Henk, gold executive with XO Lifestyle Worldwide in Punta Gorda Florida.  I share the health benefits of cold pressed high antioxidant dark chocolate.  Eating just three pieces a day can greatly increase the amount of antioxidant you eat daily.  The more antioxidants, the more you can lower inflammation which causes over 200 diseases including heart disease.  Include Xocai cold pressed dark chocolate in your daily diet.  Call me with any questions on Xocai chocolate at (877) 208-8172 or visit my website at ColdPressedChocolate.com.

Order Your Xocai Healthy Dark Chocolates For The Perfect Hostess Gift This Holiday Christmas Season

The holiday season is upon us.  I took this photo here at Walt Disney World Resort at Hollywood Studios where they have the Osbourne family lights set up.  If that does not put you in the Christmas mood, nothing will.  Soon you will be invited to events, Christmas parties, work holiday events, over to visit the neighbors and more.  You know you need the perfect hostess gift but what to buy?  You don’t want to bring something cheesy and you certainly don’t want to arrive without a hostess gift.  You hate to bring alcohol because not everyone drinks, you are not sure about cookies, candies or fudge because you don’t know who is watching their weight, is diabetic or has dietary restrictions.

That is why I find Xocai healthy dark chocolates to be the best gift idea by far.  Xocai chocolates are cold pressed.  They are not cooked like traditional candy and they don’t have the waxes, fillers and processed sugars like you find in normal candy chocolate.  Xocai chocolates are diabetic friendly and gluten free.  They are also one of the highest antioxidant products on the planet so you really can’t go wrong with this.

I recommend ordering the Xocai variety pack.  It comes with four gift

size boxes of chocolate.  Included are the Nuggets, Power Squares, Xobiotics and Omega squares.  Of course the Peanut Butter cups and the NEW XoLove Chocolate love bites are a great choice as well.

With all the craziness surrounding Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it is hard to know what deals you should be looking for.  Often we just don’t know what to buy our friends, family and loved ones for the Christmas holiday season.  There comes a point as we get older, that we just don’t need that much.  So what do you buy someone who has everything?  And what do you buy someone when you just don’t know what they want or need?  You would hate to buy the wrong size sweater or slippers which they then have to wait in line after Christmas to return.  You want to get them something special so they know you care.  So, what to buy?

Most of us are more health conscious than we used to be years ago.  Some individuals on your Christmas list may have diabetes, are dieting or need to eat gluten free so you may not want to give holiday candy or chocolates.  That is why I like to give healthy chocolate as a gift.  This yummy dark chocolate is actually diabetic friendly, low calorie and gluten free.  Xocai healthy chocolates are made with cold pressed chocolate that has not been cooked like traditional chocolate.  This cold pressed method keeps in the antioxidants from the raw cacao making this a high antioxidant superfood.  So give the ones you love the gift of healthy chocolate.  It is good for them but tastes amazing, after all we are talking about chocolate!
