Most of us already know the importance of eating a healthy diet, rich in natural, whole foods to help lose weight, improve our health, and nourish our bodies.
But, did you know some foods are so nutritious we can and should eat them everyday, to make sure we are getting the nutritional boost we need to experience our best possible health and vitality?
I don’t really like to single out one food against another, but there are certainly some foods I think we should eat regularly.
The way I see it, the more “good” food you can get into your diet, the less room you’ll have for other foods that maybe aren’t so desirable. Click to read more…
Thinking about switching to a low carb breakfast?
When the low carb buzz initially hit, I have to say I wasn’t an immediate fan.
Most of all, I hated how certain foods were villainized almost overnight.
As you know, I do believe that all foods can be enjoyed in moderation within a healthy diet.
However, if you have diabetes or you are trying to lose weight, research suggests that following a lower carb diet plan can be extremely beneficial.
When I refer to low carb, however, I do not mean the exclusion of fruits and vegetables from your diet. I also don’t mean a diet that is extremely high in processed meats, such as sausages and bacon. Click to read more…
I’ve already noticed quite a few people on Facebook mentioning they have a cold, and it’s not even officially fall yet.
So, why does the common cold occur more frequently during the fall (autumn) and winter months?
It’s actually not the cold weather itself which causes the cold, as some people think.
But rather, it is most likely to be caused by people spending more time indoors in close proximity to each other, which facilitates the spread of germs more readily.
This is another reason why children in day care or school are more prone to picking up the cold.
Did you know that the common cold is the most frequently occurring illness in the world? Click to read more…
Breakfast for me used to be toasted wholegrain bread with a banana and a cup of tea. A pretty carb heavy meal, actually.
But, that’s changed quite a lot down through the years.
I seem to go through phases of eating the same breakfast for a long time.
It was oatmeal for a while, but right now I’m enjoying eggs most mornings.
I find the higher protein content is much more satisfying, than simply eating bread or cereal on its own. I could go right through to lunch, if I needed to, without eating anything else, and feel okay with that.
