[07/11/19]   Make sure to eat enough protein

Eating enough protein is vital for optimal health.

What’s more, this nutrient is particularly important for weight loss.

High protein intake can boost metabolism significantly while making you feel full enough to automatically eat fewer calories. It can also reduce cravings and your desire to snack late at night

Sufficient protein intake has also been shown to lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels.

[07/08/19]   Avoid bright lights before sleep

When you’re exposed to bright lights in the evening, it may disrupt your production of the sleep hormone melatonin.

One strategy is to use a pair of amber-tinted glasses that block blue light from entering your eyes in the evening.

This allows melatonin to be produced as if it were completely dark, helping you sleep better. 07/02/2019

Asian Steak Noodle Bowl

[06/29/19]   Don’t overcook or burn your meat

Meat can be a nutritious and healthy part of your diet. It’s very high in protein and contains various important nutrients.

However, problems occur when meat is overcooked or burnt. This can lead to the formation of harmful compounds that raise your risk of cancer. 06/25/2019

[06/21/19]   Take care of your gut health with probiotics and fiber

The bacteria in your gut, collectively called the gut microbiota, are incredibly important for overall health.

A disruption in gut bacteria is linked to some of the world’s most serious chronic diseases, including obesity.

Good ways to improve gut health include eating probiotic foods like yogurt and sauerkraut, taking probiotic supplements, and eating plenty of fiber. Notably, fiber functions as fuel for your gut bacteria. 06/18/2019

Summer Minestrone

I was in the mood for a summery soup the other day and found this gem. So good!! This veggie-packed soup is low in calories but high in flavor.

[06/09/19]   Healthy Living Tip -

Base your meals on higher fibre starchy carbohydrates. Starchy carbohydrates should make up just over a third of the food you eat. They include potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and cereals.

Choose higher fibre or wholegrain varieties, such as wholewheat pasta, brown rice or potatoes with their skins on. They contain more fibre than white or refined starchy carbohydrates and can help you feel full for longer.

Try to include at least 1 starchy food with each main meal. Some people think starchy foods are fattening, but gram for gram the carbohydrate they contain provides fewer than half the calories of fat.

Keep an eye on the fats you add when you're cooking or serving these types of foods because that's what increases the calorie content – for example, oil on chips, butter on bread and creamy sauces on pasta. 06/04/2019

Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

This is such a yummy salad, try it and let me know your thoughts My family is always happy to see this fruit and veggie salad on the table. If strawberries aren’t available, substitute mandarin oranges and dried cranberries. —Irene Keller, Kalamazoo, Michigan

[05/06/19]   It's recommended that you eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and veg every day. They can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced.

Getting your 5 A Day is easier than it sounds. Why not chop a banana over your breakfast cereal, or swap your usual mid-morning snack for a piece of fresh fruit?

A portion of fresh, canned or frozen fruit and vegetables is 80g. A portion of dried fruit (which should be kept to mealtimes) is 30g.

A 150ml glass of fruit juice, vegetable juice or smoothie also counts as 1 portion, but limit the amount you have to no more than 1 glass a day as these drinks are sugary and can damage your teeth.

[04/24/19]   Health Tips –
Reduce salt and sugar intake

A high salt intake can result in high blood pressure, and increase the
risk of cardiovascular disease. There are different ways to reduce salt
in the diet:
When shopping, we could choose products with lower sodium
When cooking, salt can be substituted with spices, increasing the
variety of flavours and tastes.
When eating, it helps not to have salt at the table, or at least not to add
salt before tasting.
Sugar provides sweetness and an attractive taste, but sugary foods
and drinks are rich in energy, and are best enjoyed in moderation, as
an occasional treat. We could use fruits instead, even to sweeten our
foods and drinks

[04/16/19]   Health Tip of the Day -

Enjoy plenty of fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are among the most important foods for giving us enough vitamins, minerals and fibre. We should try to eat at least 5 servings a day. For example, a glass of fresh fruit juice at breakfast,
perhaps an apple and a piece of watermelon as snacks, and a good portion of different vegetables at each meal.

portion of different vegetables at each meal.

[03/18/19]   Health Tips –
Replace saturated with unsaturated fat
Fats are important for good health and proper functioning of the body. However, too much of it can negatively affect our weight and cardiovascular health. Different kinds of fats have different health effects, and some of these tips could help us keep the balance right:
• We should limit the consumption of total and saturated fats (often coming from foods of animal origin), and completely avoid trans fats; reading the labels helps to identify the sources.
• Eating fish 2-3 times a week, with at least one serving of oily fish, will contribute to our right intake of unsaturated fats.
• When cooking, we should boil, steam or bake, rather than frying, remove the fatty part of meat, use vegetable oils.

[03/13/19]   Health Tips –
Base your diet on plenty of foods rich in carbohydrates
About half the calories in our diet should come from foods rich in carbohydrates, such as cereals, rice, pasta, potatoes, and bread. It is a good idea to include at least one of these at every meal. Wholegrain foods, like wholegrain bread, pasta, and cereals, will increase our fiber intake.

[03/07/19]   Health Tips –
Eat a variety of foods
For good health, we need more than 40 different nutrients, and no single food can supply them all. It is not about a single meal, it is about a balanced food choice over time that will make a difference!
• A high-fat lunch could be followed by a low-fat dinner.
• After a large meat portion at dinner, perhaps fish should be the next day’s choice? 03/02/2019

Quinoa Side Dish Recipe

[02/27/19]   Health Tip – Clear Clutter
Look at your surroundings. If you're constantly wading through junk drawers and cabinets stuffed to the brim, it's time to clear the clutter. A cluttered space reflect a cluttered mind. Many people who describe themselves as anxious, stressed, or even depressed say they feel better when they start clearing up their physical space. 02/23/2019

[02/20/19]   Health Tip - Eat Eggs, and Don't Throw Away The Yolk
Whole eggs are so nutritious that they're often referred to as "nature's multivitamin."
It is a myth that eggs are bad for you because of the cholesterol. Studies show that they have no effect on blood cholesterol in the majority of people.
Additionally, a massive review study that included 263,938 individuals found that egg consumption had no association with the risk of heart disease.
What we're left with is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet, and the yolk is where almost all of the nutrients are found.
Telling people to throw away the yolk is among the worst pieces of advice in the history of nutrition. 02/16/2019

D's Famous Salsa Recipe

[02/13/19]   Health Tip - Don't go on a "Diet"
Diets are notoriously ineffective, and rarely work well in the long term.
In fact, "dieting" is one of the strongest predictors for future weight gain.
Instead of going on a diet, try adopting a healthier lifestyle. Focus on nourishing your body, instead of depriving it.
Weight loss should follow as a natural side effect of better food choices and improved metabolic health. 02/09/2019

yummmmmm blueberry power muffins!! Easy to make and can also be made ahead of time. Power Muffins are my personal favorite muffin recipe, and my kids go absolutely crazy for them as well.

[02/06/19]   Health Tip - Track Your Food Intake Every Now and Then
The only way to know exactly what you are eating, is to weigh your foods and use a nutrition tracker like MyFitnesspal or Cron-o-meter.
This is important to know how many calories you are eating. It is also essential to make sure that you're getting in enough protein, fiber and micronutrients.
Studies show that people who track their food intake in one way or another tend to be more successful at losing weight and sticking to a healthy diet.
Basically, anything that increases your awareness of what you are eating is likely to help you succeed.
I personally track everything I eat for a few days in a row, every few months. Then I know exactly where to make adjustments in order to get closer to my goals.

[01/30/19]   Health Tip - Use Plenty of Herbs and Spices
There are many incredibly healthy herbs and spices out there.
For example, ginger and turmeric both have potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, leading to various health benefits.
You should make an effort to include as many different herbs and spices as you can. Many of them can have powerful beneficial effects on your health. 01/26/2019

[01/23/19]   Health Tip - Lift Heavy Things
Lifting weights is one of the best things you can do to strengthen your body and improve your body composition.
It also leads to massive improvements in metabolic health, including improved insulin sensitivity.
The best approach is to go to a gym and lift weights, but doing body weight exercises can be just as effective. 01/19/2019

[01/16/19]   Health Tip - Don't Fear Saturated Fat
The "war" on saturated fat was a mistake.
It is true that saturated fat raises cholesterol, but it also raises HDL (the "good") cholesterol and changes the LDL from small to large, which is linked to a lower risk of heart disease.
New studies that included hundreds of thousands of people have shown that there is no link between saturated fat consumption and heart disease. 01/15/2019

[01/09/19]   Health Tip - Don't Eat a Lot of Refined Carbohydrates
Not all carbs are created equal.
Refined carbs have been highly processed, and have had all the fiber removed from them. They are low in nutrients (empty calories), and can be extremely harmful.
Studies show that refined carbohydrates are linked to overeating and numerous metabolic diseases.
