Tip of the Week

Put Fruit with That for Added Nutrients:

So often we load up on the foods we love – mostly dairy and simple carbs it seems – and neglect fresh fruits and veggies. So, when you have a craving for some cheese or yogurt or a homemade pastry item, add some fruit with that.  Top your yogurt with chopped bananas or fresh peaches.  Put some apples or blueberries in those scones you are making.  As always use all real food ingredients then bump it up with some great nutrients to boot!

People seem to think that going without certain foods (or having no food at all) will do serious damage to your body. But, it simply isn’t the case.  Short-term fasting from all food – drinking water or even 100% juice being just fine of course – is a great detox

.  Or taking out known toxic foods and fasting from them is a proven energy booster, body cleanser, weight loss tool and even de-stresser.  So… don’t listen to the fearful or those who haven’t tried it.  It really can kick you in the pants in all the right ways.

Who doesn’t love a good chip and dip combo?  But, if you switch those chips out for veggies, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to add in your micro-nutrient fix!  Use organic root veggies like carrots (much sweeter when organic!) or even sliced peppers with your ranch.  Put some almond butter on that celery!  Before you know it, you’ll have satisfied your munchies AND worked in 1-2 servings of live foods into your day!

Think: Hydrate First, Eat Second
The best solution payday loans

The funny thing about the human body is that it really does need it’s 60% of water

The best solution payday loans
to maintain good health. In fact, the urge to eat often comes as a last resort when a body is dehydrated (and for busy mamas prone to indulging in drinks that are diuretics -like tea, coffee, or sodas- this is more often than not the state of our bodies).  We go along in our busy days not drinking enough water and we discover that we are often wanting to snack or nosh our way through the day.  There’s the connection!

The feeling of “hunger” (that… “Huh, I think I’m hungry” feeling) is often your body crying out for water; it will tell you it’s thirty, then ask for food if that cry goes ignored. In essence, your body is hoping that the food you eat will have water in it to quench it’s thirst. So, remember to drink lots of water throughout the day – more than you think you need.  Doing this will help your body function at it’s best, brightening your skin, energizing your cells, and staving off “false hunger”!

Even after almost a decade of learning, adjusting, and changing my eating and exercise habits I had not fully understood the connection between what “food” is offered us on the shelf and the government which allows such “food”.  (I did, clearly, learn on my own how real food and non-food affect my own nutrition, mood, and weight). But the two documentaries that took me from self-informed and self-educated on food to just plain mad about the whole food industry in this country are: Food, Inc. and King Corn.  Check them out.  Get mad… for all the right reasons.

Make Your Chores Count
The best solution payday loans

When you have kids, that the list of chores we all have keeps growing by the minute.  But, if you take a moment to consider that you can sweep your way into a caloric burn, you might be more motivated to handle a broom.  When approaching your chores, think of them as mini exercise routines.  Scrub with passion.  Sweep with “umph”.  Vacuum like there’s no turning back!  It’s little, but you can motivate your muscles to work in everyday ways and burn some extra calories while you do!

It seems like “a vitamin is a vitamin” but if you knew how many vitamins, coated in synthetics, are simply passed through bodies year after year it may astound you.  Our bodies can not break down synthetics, much less absorb them.  In addition, most vitamins use minerals found in the ground – meaning rocks – instead of plant-based minerals (the kind humans absorb) as a short cut.  So, you eat synthetic materials and rocks instead of actual food… thus the non-absorption.  Therefore, know what’s in your vitamin!  Is it plant-based?  Does it use synthetics?  (Chemicals like petroleum- !!)  If so, you aren’t absorbing it and you are wasting your money and your healthy habit on some pretty pricey poo.

If you are in a hurry and need a meal on the go, a banana is the perfect snack.  It has an amazing amount of nutrients, fiber, and tastes good to boot.  So, save money on the spendy pre-packaged snacks and eat a piece of “nature’s candy” for your next portable edible.
