Super Simple Steps To Kickstart Your Weight Loss Journey & Live Healthy

Once you decide to start taking steps towards a healthier lifestyle, it’s important to follow some certain criteria in order to ensure success. From experience, the following things are what I think are imperative to any successful weight loss plan  .

Set Reasonable Goals

If you have 50 pounds to lose, don’t plan on losing it all in two months. Losing 1-2 pounds a week is reasonable and maintainable, but not much more than that. So if you want to lose that 50 pounds, plan on doing so over a course of 6-7 months instead. This will not only be much easier for you to maintain if you drop at a steady rate, but it will also be a much healthier approach. 

Practice Patience

Remember that it took some time for you to get to where you are today. So don’t expect to see progress happen magically, and don’t get discouraged when things are taking longer than you hoped or anticipated. The most maintainable results are those that are achieved in a healthy fashion and not in a crash-diet style. 

 Acknowledge Mistakes and Move Forward

In the perfect world, we’d never fall off track or make mistakes, but that’s just not reality. There will be times where you will experience setbacks- you’ll sneak in a slice of cake, skip a workout, find yourself at a McDonald’s drive thru. The only time mistakes will make a dent in your progress is if you let one turn into ten. Acknowledge it happened, understand the trigger, forgive yourself and move on.

We tend to feel most accountable when others around us know what we’re working towards. For example, if you tell your coworkers about a weight loss goal, you’ll be less likely or at least think twice before having dessert at a company luncheon. You may even be able to find support groups in your community where other individuals with common goals meet. 

Celebrate Small Accomplishments

Let’s go back to the example of wanting to lose 50 pounds. Perhaps part of your weight loss plan is to start working out, something you’ve never really stuck to doing. Set a goal of working out three days a week for a month straight. Once you accomplish that, reward yourself with something non-food related, like a trip to the spa or a new gym outfit. It’s the small steps that get us to the finish line, so celebrate them!

*** PLEASE NOTE****Seek Medical Clearance First

People tend to think they only need to be cleared by a doctor before exercising if they have a known medical condition or old injury, but that’s not necessarily the case.

Oftentimes the majority of exercise-induced injuries are a result of an unknown heart condition of some sort in combination with vigorous exercise. It’s not a bad idea any way to see your doctor for an annual checkup or physical for general well-being purposes.

Top 10 Cravings and Their Healthy Food Choices

Have you ever noticed that there are particular foods that you crave on a regular basis, often in cycles? You’re not alone.  For example, many people crave sugar, carbohydrates, or alcohol not because of eating disorders, but instead it is a sign of hormone imbalance caused by a lack of healthy nutrition.One thing the doctors agree on, if you have dieted over a long period of time, particularly low-fat dieting, chances are your metabolism needs to heal itself first with the necessary nutritional support such as high-grade vitamins and supplements.If you become aware of your common cravings, you can also do daily work to slowly change your unhealthy habits and get back to a normal lifestyle that is not controlled by physical imbalances.  When you find yourself craving a particular food, try eating the healthy food choice is small amounts.Researchers have discovered that chocolate contains the same alkaloid compounds found in alcohol.  So you chocolate cravings might feel like an addiction, but like any other imbalance, you can fix it.  More women tend to have this craving and often our bodies are influenced by a shortage of magnesium.  In this case, healthy food choices include raw nuts, seeds, legumes and fruits.

If you crave sweets often, you might be exhausted or feeling depressed, your blood sugar and serotonin levels and likely low, and so the body signals the brain that it needs a pick me up.  But what your body probably needs is healthier food choices that include chromium, such as broccoli, grapes, cheese, dried beans, calves liver and chicken.  You may also need carbon, phosphorous, sulfur and tryptophan.  Try the following foods:  fresh fruits, chicken, beef, liver, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, legumes, cheese, raisins, and vegetables such as kale, spinach and cabbage.

If you crave oily and fatty foods, what your body needs primarily is calcium.  Healthy sources of calcium include mustard and turnip greens, broccoli, kale, legumes, cheese, and sesame.


A craving for coffee or tea, may be an indication of a few nutrients that are lacking such as phosphorus, sulfur, NaCL (salt) and iron.  Some of the healthy food choices in this case are chicken, beef, liver, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, legumes, egg yolks, red pepper, garlic, onion, cruciferous vegetables, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, seaweed, greens and black cherries.

Craving alcohol or even recreational drugs can be an indication that your body probably needs more protein, avenin, calcium, glutamine and potassium.  Try eating meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, nuts, granola, oatmeal, mustard and turnip greens, broccoli, kale, legumes, cheese, raw cabbage juice, black olives, and seaweed.

If you crave soda or carbonated drinks, your body probably needs calcium.  Try eating mustard and turnip greens, broccoli, kale, legumes, cheese and sesame.  Here’s an important tip:  if you find yourself wanting to chewing ice often, your need iron.  Food sources are meat, fish, poultry, seaweed, greens and black cherries, or supplement a gentle iron.

If you crave salty foods, your body is looking for chloride.  The healthy choice is raw goat milk, fish and unrefined sea salt.  If a lot of your food choices are acidic in nature, you should supplement magnesium.

If you crave tobacco, your body could be looking for silicon and tyrosine.  Eat nuts, seeds and avoid refined starches.  It’s also a good idea to supplement Vitamin C and eat orange, green and red fruits and vegetables.

If you find yourself craving any solid food over a liquid, your body is dehydrated.  You have probably needed water for a long time so try flavoring your water with lemon or lime and give the body 8 glasses a day.

Women who have specific cravings right around menstruation or pre-menstrual are lacking zinc.  Try eating red meats (especially organ meats), seafood, leafy vegetables and root vegetables. 
The good news it’s possible to get your body back into balance with the right food choices made every day and supplement only where absolutely necessary.

Lose Weight Using The Hourglass Diet Healthy Diet Plan

The Hourglass Diet is a new model for eating wisely in a junk food world. It outlines a simple, easy to understand approach to eating in a way that nourishes the cells of your body without fattening yourself up.

What’s unique about the Hourglass Diet is the seven food zones and 22 food groups all neatly colour coded so you know immediately when you’re eating good food and when you’re eating junk.

Unlike other diet books The Hourglass Diet is not padded out with recipes. You don’t need recipes if you buy good food.

In the Hourglass Diet, author John Miller takes a swipe at a number diets produced by various nutrition groups, principally because of the love affair they have with bread. The low bar of the Glycemic Index has been set too high in order to sneak bread and white rice into a healthy diet. Of course bread is a refined cereal, and for a lot of people refined cereals are not the best way to eat. Unrefined cereals get the green light – in moderation. Refined cereals get the red light because of their impact on insulin metabolism. 

With respect to the Pyramid have you noticed that the food that’s not good for you (chocolate, ice-cream, licorice …) is staring at you from the top of the Pyramid?

As for the dietetic profession, there are too many dieticians sharing pillow talk with the world’s largest manufacturers and purveyors of junk food.

The Hourglass Diet has one of the best junk food definitions you’ll ever see. We’re drowning in a sea of junk. In most diet books ‘junk food’ hardly gets a mention. That’s one of the reasons why people keep eating it; they’re unaware of its energy content and its lack of nutritional value. For instance, 120gms of chocolate has around as much energy as 2Kg of carrots. You don’t have to be a genius to work out which of the two is better for you, though 2Kg of carrots is going to put a serious dent in your appetite!

You’ll be amazed how much junk food out there is masquerading as good food. It lines the shelves of supermarkets.

You won’t have heard of the term ‘garbohydrates’ before, but in the Hourglass Diet it’s described as the energy-dense foods made from combinations of fat, flour, sugar and potato. Just remember you first heard about the ‘garbohydrates’ in the Hourglass Diet.

Whilst the Hourglass Diet has simplified the complicated, too many diet books are overly simplistic. For most people, eating to nourish the cells of the body without fattening themselves up is more complicated than trying to spend their lives eating like sparrows or rabbits. It’s too hard. What happens is they end up on the diet roller coaster.

The Hourglass Diet overcomes the fat/thin/fat dilemma with the inclusion of a section on satisfying the inner hunger. You can’t satisfy the inner hunger by eating.

In a nutshell, what the Hourglass Diet does is set out the principles of healthy eating and once you’ve digested those principles, the recipes will look after themselves.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and eat from the top of the Hourglass. That way you’ll nourish the cells of your body without fattening yourself up.

Eating Healthy in Today’s Economy

Whether you agree that the U.S. is in a recession or not, you can’t help but notice the higher cost of feeding your family.  Even food costs for staples like milk and eggs have increased dramatically. Here are some suggestions for feeding your family healthier foods without going bankrupt:

-Cut out junk foods. With 60% of adults and 30% of children overweight in this country, we need to replace junk foods with healthier foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, cereals, and pasta; low-fat dairy products, and sensible servings of poultry, fish, lean meat, beans, nuts, and eggs.

-Drink water instead of soda pop (You can still enjoy your favorite beverage when you go out to a sporting event, movie, etc. Just stick with the smallest size to save money AND calories! ) Unless you live in a house that has unsafe well water, tap water is probably just as healthy as bottled water.

-Eat whole fruit for snacks instead of potato chips, cookies, doughnuts or snack cakes. One large banana makes 2 servings; 1 pound of grapes will provide several servings. Buy fruits in season and when they are on special. If you don’t get a sale flyer through the mail, pick one up as you go into the store and look for the week’s specials.

-Limit fruit juice to ½ cup per day. Instead of juice boxes or pouches, look for 100% natural juice in half gallon cartons or bottles. If your kids want to drink their juice from individual serving bottles, buy your own plastic bottles and straws at the dollar store and wash them out at night.

-Spread natural peanut butter on whole wheat toast for a quick breakfast that is much healthier than toaster pastries. The whole wheat bread supplies much-needed fiber, and the peanut butter provides protein. If you prefer cereal, hot oatmeal is cheap and good for you. Add some sliced banana or a few berries and a glass of milk and you have a very filling and low cost breakfast.

-Eat yogurt instead of ice cream for snacks. When your supermarket has yogurt on sale, stock up on enough to last several days. To save even more, buy large cartons of plain yogurt and add your own fresh fruit. Yogurt is good for your digestive system!

-Buy fresh vegetables in season or when they are on special. Packages of baby carrots are almost always cheap. Cabbage was $ .10 lb. this week at my local supermarket. If you have even a small space in your back yard, you can easily grow healthier foods like tomatoes, bell peppers, and zucchini. Tomatoes and peppers can even be grown in a large pot on your patio. Go to a local plant nursery and buy starter plants; plant them where they can get lots of sun, and water them frequently.  Bell peppers can be chopped and frozen to last all winter. When you need some for an inexpensive recipe, just take out what you need and pop the package back in the freezer. Zucchini can be shredded in a blender or food processor and frozen for zucchini-raisin-nut bread.

-Watch your portion sizes, especially when eating protein foods. Even an adult male, 35 years old who exercises more than 1 hour a day (in addition to his regular routine) only needs 7 ounces of meat or beans a day spread over 3 meals. Cook only enough of those foods to give everyone the recommended amount. For a family of 5, 1 pound of ground chuck would be enough to give Dad 4 ounces, Mom 3 ounces, a 10 year old boy and 8 year old twin girls 3 ounces each. Those are the serving sizes recommended by the new USDA guidelines. (A 3-ounce portion of meat is about the size of a deck of cards.)

-Skip the bacon. Bacon is expensive, very high in fat, and offers little or no nutritional value.

-Use beans frequently as a meat substitute. There are many varieties, they can be prepared in a crock-pot so that dinner is ready when you get home, and they contain lots of fiber to improve regularity. The USDA recommends eating beans 4 times per week. If you have a problem with gas after eating beans, try washing them, covering with water, bringing water to a boil, then draining off water and refilling pot. You can also use Beano, a natural plant enzyme, if you have problems with gas.

-Purchase chicken or turkey on sale and freeze. Again, be aware of healthful portion sizes. Some chicken breasts are large enough for 2-3 servings. Don’t cook more than you need.

-Fill up with foods that have a high water content. Salad greens, watermelon, and sugar free gelatin are some good examples. Serve a healthy green salad at the beginning of each dinner, topped with a small amount of low-calorie dressing, vinegar and oil, or a squeeze of lemon juice.

-Make your own pizza. Instead of paying for expensive delivery and high-calorie pizza, make your own whole-wheat crust, add canned pizza sauce and low-fat cheese, and top with your favorite veggies such as onions, peppers, mushrooms, olives, etc. Do a web search for “pizza dough recipes” and try different ones until your family finds one they really like.

Carb Cycling for Weight Loss: Does It Work?

Carb cycling is a diet program where you mix higher carbohydrate days with lower carbohydrate days and sometimes no carbohydrate days to burn fat and supercharge weight loss. This way the dieter does not suffer some of the negative consequences of a pure low carbohydrate diet plan, like depriving the body of macro nutrients (which are carbohydrates, fats and proteins). Majority of diets programs out there usually limit your food choices however, carb cycling does advocate a number of general healthy eating principles as well as moderating carbohydrate intake. The carb cycling diet forces the body to metabolize fat and protein to generate a substance called a ketone. Ketones are the result of the body burning fat for energy.

In general you can decide to go for 3 days of low carb followed by 1 day of high carb intake, then back to low carb days. Alternatively you can go for 2 days of low carb followed by 1 day of high carb and then 1 day of no carb. Overall calorie intake on low carb days should also be lower. When starting the diet, you need to calculate your required daily calorie intake and work out the required quantity of carbohydrate you should be eating. If you are aiming for a healthy weight loss of one to three pounds per week, try to ensure that your calorie intake on low carb days is low enough to help you achieve this goal. It is a great idea to engage in tough workouts on a high carb day.

Carb cycling focuses more on carbohydrates (and not protein or fats) because carbs seem to have the most influential effect on the body composition and how you look. The easiest way to get started with carb cycling is to follow the plan and then adjust from there. Once you’ve mastered a particular carb cycling strategy of your choice and you’re ready for some more fine-tuning with your nutrition, the next step would be to adjust your carb intake for each individual meal to suit your body and your goals. At this point it might be wise to bring on a coach to help you make these adjustments.

Aside from varying carb intake, most carb cycling or rotation diets programs also promote a diet of healthy foods such as fruit, vegetables, high fiber carbohydrates, low saturated fats and a moderate intake of healthy unsaturated fats. Many also recommend avoiding any form of refine sugar and refined carbohydrates except the natural sugar in fruits.

Let me give one important advice here, please note that a high carb day shouldn’t be a day to eat all the junk food available. However don’t be afraid to give yourself a treat with different types of high calorie foods either, as long as total carbohydrates are accounted for.

Most people consider the carb cycling procedure a lot more convenient because of the fact that high carb days are comfortably accommodated. Therefore the common unwanted side effect such as reduced fat burning capacity, high craving for food and lack of adequate exercises due to weakness are exempted. This is because high carb days refuel the muscle’s glycogen levels making you feel good and energized.

If your goal really is gaining as much muscle as possible while keeping fat gain to a minimum, then carb cycling is an ideal strategy. Ultimately, it is possible to use this approach to gain lean muscle in the long run. So, carb-cycling for weight loss: does it work? The judgment is yours and a try out will certainly prove this diet method’s suitability.

Take healthy food and maintain yourself

Your health and attitude towards life and work will be deciding your food only. This is very important concept about your health, this is amazing concept that you must use. If you have heavy physic so apply low calorie recipes, this is very important to use. The low calorie food will provide you protection from fat and other disease.

Make manually a list of recipes so you can have right to use to them for your low calorie breakfast, noon time meal, supper and treats. As a result you won’t find yourself in problem eating an alike meal over and over. Like they say, assortment is well thought-out the spice of life and it’s for all time nice to put together more than a few food varieties.

What you might wish for to do is preserve a sufficient supply of food that’s willingly obtainable when using your low calorie meal recipes. You will be clever to plan and get ready them over the weekend and make sufficient servings to last for seven days. It is surely better at whatever time you can just get hold of the lunch you have ready instead of visiting a diner and eating unhealthful food. Simply by making the meals in your own home, suitable food choices you have ready are just a reach away.

Let us start with healthy snack ideas, a number of fruits and vegetables are just simple good by themselves. You can make fruit salad and vegetable salad also; this is very suitable and right option for your health. You might also wish for to make a fruit immerse with fat-free cream cheese, a little milk, and honey. As long as you make use of it in self-control, peanut cooking oil is also great with apples.

If you are in the mood for something spicier, cut up any color of signal peppers and put them on it. Again you can make use of your old friend the fat-free cream cheese to maintain the veggies in place, carrots and celery are also good snacks. You can create a superb snack by addition out of breath rice, diced tomatoes and onions, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. It takes a little longer than the other snacks, but it tastes great.

College Athletic Recruiting FAQs

Student athletes are up against a litany of hurdles that they need to successfully navigate in order to achieve their dreams of making it to a good college or simply taking courses at USC Online. Students and parents have plenty of questions about the best way to make the transition from high school to the collegiate level with sports as the path for their future. There’s a lot of misinformation and hyperbole out there and asking the right questions can help debunk many of the myths that are prevalent about playing college sports. We’re going to take a look at the most frequently asked questions and give you some answers to better prepare you for that all important next step in your life.

How Early Should I Get Started on Recruitment?

The answer to this question is simple: Start as Early as possible. College coaches have a lot of pressure on them to win now…and keep winning. The way to do that is to find the best talent before the competition does and that’s why you see coaches starting files on potential players as early as 7th grade. That’s right, the top coaches are watching middle-schoolers play and they’re keeping tabs on these kids all the way until they reach their freshman year of high school. So if you’re set on playing at the collegiate level then you need to begin planning early.

May I Contact College Coaches?

Yes, by all means do so. The only rules in place about contact are those regulating when and how college coaches may initiate contact with a prospect. But the other way around is perfectly legal and encouraged, but only if you have something of substance to discuss with them. College coaches are incredibly busy all year round and while many are eager to find that diamond in the rough, many of them may be tough to reach unless you have something of great importance to discuss. The last thing you want to do is be the guy or gal who wastes their time.

Do I Need a Highlight Reel?

Absolutely. But don’t worry about hiring a top videographer to come to every game and shoot footage and then edit all together into a flashy reel that you can then send out on DVD to every coach. The invention of YouTube has made getting your footage out to coaches extremely simple and they prefer it that way as well. They don’t want a stack of DVD’s on their desk, just a point and click on YouTube is all you need, so be sure to upload all of your best plays there and everyone can see them. Even better if one of them goes viral.

If I Received a Recruiting Letter from a College Coach Does That Mean I Made the Team?

No. A recruiting letter might make you feel all warm and fuzzy, boost your confidence, and it’s great to show friends and family, but it’s better to burst your bubble now. Coaches send hundreds of those letters to athletes all across the country and circumstances can change rapidly to make the coach drop you from his list of attractive prospects. So while it’s a nice thing to have, you’re far from being accepted by Amherst College and even further from making the team in any meaningful capacity.

5 Tips to Help Student Athletes Improve Their Game

When it comes to college athletes, there is one thing they all have in common: the drive to win. If you are on a sports team at your college, you probably ask yourself everyday how you can improve your game and get better at the sport you play. The truth of the matter is that there are no limits to how good you can get, but there are limits to how hard you can push yourself, so it is all about finding that sweet spot. The best way to do that is to make sure you take care of your body, your mind and you want to stay true to your team. The camaraderie of your team will go a long way. Here are five tips to help student athletes improve their game.

  1. Make Sure to Get a Full Night of Sleep

Ideally, you want to get a full night of sleep before you condition or train. It is especially important to get a full night of sleep before you actually play against another team. Sleep is the elixir of life, so if you want to play better, you want to sleep better.

  1. Create a Balance Between Schoolwork and Playing Sports

When you are playing sports, you can often spend too much time on the field instead of studying for your exams. Contrary to popular believe, you still need to do well in your classes if you want to continue playing on the team you play on. Plus, if you create a balance, you will be far less stressed out when you are on the field. The last thing you want is to fret about an exam while you are competing. Whether you are going to University of Cincinnati or Brandeis University, this balance is crucial.

  1. Train Every Single Day

Even when it’s not football or baseball season, you still want to train. It is important to keep your stamina up and you want to keep your body conditioned. If you don’t stay conditioned, you may come back and not have the same fight in you. It is important that you work out, lift weights and do other things to keep your body in peak physical shape. You want to come back to the field feeling like you don’t need any time to warm up.

  1. Listen to Your Coaches

When you are working with coaches, you want to listen to them very carefully. Sure, they will give you motivational speeches, but coaches will also have a keen insight into some of the ways you should perform on the field. If you want to be a better player, you want to listen to your coaches – and work with them very carefully.

  1. Spend Time with Your Teammates

On top of everything, you want to spend quality time with your teammates. More than anything, your teammates will be your allies when you are on the field – no matter what position you play. In the end, this camaraderie will help you and your teammates develop winning strategies.

5 healthy ways of adding Almonds to your daily diet?

Nuts are known to be healthy- they are full of essential nutrients and minerals that are good for your well-being. These are a bite-sized nutrient package that most of us do not include enough of in our diet. Nuts are a great option if you’re looking for a quick fix to eat healthier.

Amongst nuts, almonds are considered to be one of the healthiest. A handful of these nuts have protein, vitamin E, fibre, riboflavin and many other essential nutrients that ensure a wholesome and healthy life.Almonds are nutrient rich and also make a delicious snack that offers natural goodness in every bite. 

In fact, an interesting study published in the England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) revealed that people who ate a 28g serving of nuts such as almonds, at least seven times per week had a 20 percent lower all-cause mortality rate (death from any cause) compared to those who did not eat nuts.

Almonds are also a weight-wise snack which has been proved in various scientific research studies such as the one published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study found that study participants consuming 43 grams of dry-roasted, lightly salted almonds every day experienced reduced hunger and improved dietary vitamin E and monounsaturated (“good”) fat intake without increasing body weight.

Hence, to make sure you reap all these benefits of almonds, here are 5 healthy ways of adding almonds to your daily diet:

Make the Healthy Swap

We are all familiar with untimely hunger pangs. It is difficult to ignore them and we often end up wondering about healthy alternatives. A handful of almonds can be just that! Keep them handyand you are good to go.Start with replacing that bag of cookies, in your drawer/bag that you gobble down while at work, with some wholesome almonds.Easy to store in a jar or mint box, these tasty nuts can keep you from consuming unnecessary junk in between meals and help maintain a balanced diet.

Power breakfast with almonds

Almonds make a great addition to any meal. Since breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, you can make it wholesome by adding these nuts to your favourite choice breakfast. These not only add a healthy crunch to your breakfast but also help enhance its nutritional value.

Post Workout Snack!

While exercising every day is essential for a healthy and fit body, it is also important to keep a check on the post-workout snacks we consume. More often than not, we find ourselves reaching out to anything and everything to munch on, post a workout session. However, what we do not realize is that we end up gaining back the calories we burnt at the gym right before. Hence, introducing a habit of munching on almonds post a rigorous exercise helps keep a check on this, in addition to providing essential nutrients and taste.

‘Chai’ Time with Almonds

Taking a break with a hot cup of chai or coffee is an everyday ritual for all of us. Be it at home or at our workplace, we always make time for that well-deserved cuppa. However, our chai time experience is never complete without its accompaniments. However, like we all know how unhealthy our regular fried namkeen is, some dry roasted and flavoured almonds can be the healthy choice to make. The delicious crunch of almonds can complement your hot beverage at any time of the day. You can also try different almond snack recipes such as theSweet Chilli Almonds recipe, for a flavorful chai time.

Top your Salad with almonds

Salads – a go-to choice for weight watchers, can be made healthier and taste better by adding almonds in it. Especially since the concept of salads is no longer limited to the raw greens, various, exciting recipes can prepared using healthy vegetables and fruits which almonds sprinkled over them. One such salad you can try is the almond, oranges and roast pumpkin salad.

Healthy Snacks Positive Effects On Kids

Why are healthy snacks important? Let’s be honest, they don’t taste as good. Bottom line, nothing will taste as good at that exact moment as a chocolate bar, ice cream, cinnamon roll, cheese Danish…get the idea? But that doesn’t obviously mean that’s what kids and people in general, should eat. On the contrary, healthy snacks should be encouraged for the multiple positive effects they’ll have.

1. Encourage Discipline
Don’t laugh. Eating healthy, or healthier is all about discipline. You’d rather have ice cream, but instead opt for pretzels. You’d rather have a chocolate bar, but instead opt for chex mix. It’s not easy, but can be done. If done once, it develops discipline, and gets easier in the future. This discipline will make other things, like waking up in the morning, completing school tasks, homework, studying, etc easier as well.

2. Establish a Long Term View
Similar to the above item, Eating healthy snacks does establish a long term view of the situation in that the effect of choosing a healthy snack over candy is not always immediately apparent. The positive effects may take some time to manifest.

3. Reduced Problems With Overweight and Obesity
Finding Healthy Solutions for your snacking will definitely promote weight management. A good rule of thumb is that the snacks be made up of less than 35% of calories from fat, less than 35% of calories from sugar, less than 10% of calories from saturated fat, and the item itself be less than 250 calories.

4. Better Brain Function
Putting less sugar and fat into one’s body, and doing more to meet basic nutrition needs will certainly allow one’s brain to function at its highest capacity.

5. Potentially Protecting Against Type 2 Diabetes
While the data isn’t conclusive in this area, many believe that lowering sugar content and starch content in one’s diet may prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes for those who are predisposed to it. Certainly we understand that when someone is diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, they are immediately instructed to reduce sugar intake.

So the support for the idea that kids should eat healthy snacks is pretty overwhelming, or it would seem so. That said, the opposing view is represented by something pretty overwhelming on its side….the American Advertising Industry! Whether through TV, Radio, the internet, or countless other advertising mechanisms, unhealthy snacks are presented in enticing fashion by the some of the smartest advertising minds in the world. So what to do? Just keep doing what you can to encourage proper diet, present the facts and hope people make the right choice.

Paying for Home Health Care: What Do Medicare and Medigap Cover?

Prescribed only by a physician, home health care is skilled nursing care that aids in the recovery from illness, injury, or surgery in the patient’s home. And fortunately for many seniors who are now opting for care at home, Medicare insurance covers most costs related to home health care.

The government, however, has set some limitations on payouts – you are only eligible if you need intermittent care (usually defined as seven days a week or less than eight hours a day over 21 days or less) (1), physical/occupational therapy or speech language pathology; you are homebound; and the home health care agency providing care is approved by your Medicare insurance program.

In addition to medication administration, general supervision, and therapy services, the Medicare home health benefit covers a number of other necessities, including medical aids and supplies to aid in recuperation. On the occasion, though, you may be required to cover some of the costs associated with home health care. But what can you expect to pay out-of-pocket that’s not covered by Medicare dollars?

Medicare Insurance: Part A and Part B

Hospital Insurance (Medicare Part A) helps cover the costs of your inpatient care at hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, or religious non-medical health care establishments. Part A can also help cover hospice and home health care services. Individuals aged 65 and older are usually automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A and do not have to pay a monthly premium if Medicare taxes were paid while working. If you did not pay taxes, you are still eligible, but you will be required to pay a monthly premium.

Medical Insurance (Medicare Part B) helps cover services such as those offered by your physician and outpatient care. Many seniors maintain their enrollment in Part A, but elect not to use Part B, which requires a monthly premium that is dependent upon income, the requirements of which change yearly. Unfortunately, if you didn’t sign up for Part B when you were first eligible for insurance, your premium may be slightly higher (2).

For questions on your Medicare insurance benefits, you should contact 1-800-MEDICARE or read the handbook mailed to you each year entitled “Medicare and You.”

What’s Covered and What’s Not

Medicare insurance pays for physical and occupational therapy and speech language pathology services, counseling, some medical supplies, durable medical equipment (which must meet coverage criteria), as well as general assistance with daily activities which include dressing, bathing, eating, and toileting. For most other medical equipment, Medicare insurance will cover 80% of its cost (3).

However, Medicare will not cover twenty-four hour care at home, meals delivered to your home, and services unrelated to your care such as housekeeping. Of course, as mentioned above, you will be required to pay 20% for medical equipment not fully covered by Medicare insurance such as wheelchairs, walkers, and oxygen tanks (4).

In some cases, your home health care agency may present you with a Home Health Advance Beneficiary Notice (HHABN), which, simply put, means if your agency is ceasing your care services, you will be presented with a written statement outlining the supplies and services the agency believes your Medicare insurance benefits will not cover as well as a detailed explanation of why. Should this situation arise, you do have recourse – the HHABN lists directions on acquiring the final decision on payment issues or filing an appeal if Medicare refuses to cover costs for home health care. In the meantime, you should continue receiving home health care services, but keep in mind that you will be paying for these services out-of-pocket until Medicare accepts your claims and remits past expenses.

Medigap and Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses

Medigap, a supplemental insurance policy, is sold privately and covers the services and supplies not paid for by Medicare insurance. When used in conjunction, Medigap and Medicare can often cover a large majority of the costs of your home health care. Insurance companies offer a variety of different Medigap policies (A through L), but since each one comes with specific benefits, you’ll need to compare the highlights closely. Medigap policies vary by cost, and many insurance companies require you to have both Medicare Parts A and B in order to purchase a supplemental plan (5).

For seniors with both Part A and Part B Medicare, your home health care situation is usually covered, save for the 20% out-of-pocket expenses for medical equipment. Just remember to keep track of your Medicare insurance benefits (and Medigap if applicable) by verifying with your physician, home health care agency, and insurance representative. Paying for home health care does not have to cost you an arm and a leg, but do be prepared for the occasional (but necessary) out-of-pocket medical expenses.

Vegetables Snacks Kids Like to Eat

What would you do if your kids asked for “More veggies, please?” Well, prepare yourself, because they just might when you serve vegetables like this. These snacks are great for after school treats.

Celery and Pretzel Butterfly
2 stalks of celery
12 large pretzels (not the straight kind)
6 tablespoons natural peanut butter
Around 18 raisins
12 slivered almonds

Wash the celery with cold water. Cut the celery stalks crosswise into thirds. Fill each celery stalk with one tablespoon of the peanut butter. Gently push 1 pretzel into the peanut butter, so the pretzel is parallel to the length of the celery stick and looks like a wing. Do the same on the other side of the celery, with another pretzel. Your celery stick now has butterfly wings!

Use the raisins for the eyes, nose and mouth of the butterfly. Create the antennae by pushing the slivered almonds into the filling, on top of the butterfly’s head.

Celery and Carrot Wagons
2 stalks of celery
12 toothpicks
16 carrot slices
1/2 cup of peanut butter; cheese spread or ranch dressing
20 Raisins

Wash the celery with cold water. Cut celery stalks crosswise into pieces that are about 3 inches long. Push two toothpicks through the sides of each celery stick to create the axles for four wheels. Fill each celery wagon with the peanut butter, or another spread. Stick a round carrot slice onto the end of each toothpick to form a wheel. After the wheel is attached, cover each toothpick tip with a raisin.

You can stick a toothpick into the end of the celery for a wagon handle, and cover the tip with another raisin. You can also leave the handle off to create a celery car instead.

Tomato Army Ants
3 small cherry tomatoes for each ant
9 toothpicks or grape stems for each ant.

Rinse the cherry tomatoes in cold water. Attach the three tomatoes with two of the toothpicks or grape stems. Use six more to create the ants legs, and two for the antennae. Make as many as you can to create a whole army of ants.

Zucchini or Cucumber Centipede

Small zucchinis or cucumbers
Shredded carrots

Rinse the zucchinis or cucumbers. Cut off the ends of each, and attach strips of zucchini or cucumber for the legs. You can use shredded carrots for the antennae.

Here are some other tips to make vegetables more child-friendly

Choose Colorful Veggies – Kids loves colors. When you serve vegetables to your children, try to serve an assortment of colors

Make them Little Finger Friendly – Slice vegetables into small pieces so they will be easier to pick up with small fingers.

Do the Dip – If your child is a reluctant vegetable eater, let them experiment with different dips. Most kids like ranch dip for their vegetables. Some kids will eat anything if it has cheese or peanut butter on it.

Vegetable Art – Instead of arranging vegetables for your kids, let them design their own vegetable creations. Give them an assortment of vegetables, spreads, and toothpicks, and let them create their own work of vegetable art.

Vitamins for Adhd Kids – Can They Really Help ?

Vitamins for ADHD kids are going to play a key role in any healthy balanced nutritious diet. Processed foods lack certain vitamins or they do not even come near the RDA (Recommended Daily Amount). They have plenty of colourings and additives which are harmful and now there is a movement to ban them from kids’ food products. Maryland has become the first USA state to ban them from 2010 and the warning will be: ” The color additives in this food may cause hyperactivity and behavior problems in some children.

Many parents dread the idea of giving their kids pills to take and sometimes they resist unless you can hide them in their food. A good tip to remember is to buy them in capsules so that they can easily be stirred into smoothies or any other liquid food such as sauces etc.

Why bother with vitamins for ADHD kids at all? Are they going to help and why isn’t medication enough? We all know that certain food like caffeine and chocolate are stimulants which tend to make us bouncy and full of energy. Sugary drinks and carbohydrates will increase the level of blood sugar causing highs and when this falls, we have a sudden loss of energy which will cause listlessness. It is better to avoid these ‘crashes’ where possible, especially when we are talking about diet for ADHD children.

The Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils contained in fish and flaxseed are known to be very beneficial for kids with ADHD and indeed for a host of other conditions as well from arthritis to cholesterol control. A good idea would be to introduce these for the whole family. Fish oil capsules can be taken every day.

The only way to make sure that vitamins for ADHD kids are the right amount is to make sure that they have a balanced healthy and nutritious diet and you can follow the food pyramid for that. Protein triggers alertness in the brain while certain carbohydrates will encourage drowsiness. This is why protein is king. That is why it is so important to have enough protein both at breakfast and at lunch. One expert maintains that only about 5% of ADHD children are getting enough protein. The basic daily amount for kids is up to 30 grams of protein. A cup of soya milk, an egg and an ounce of meat can provide up to 20 grams so it is not difficult to reach the daily dose.

The correct amount of vitamins for ADHD kids given in the right foods will affect their behaviour and will make life easier for everyone in the family. But a diet for ADHD children, parenting and support at school are not enough. You will also have to look at a natural remedy for ADHD which will help calm the child and help him to focus on tasks and reduce distractability.

Healthy Food for Children is Crucial for Development

All the major developments of the body and brain take place at childhood.  Therefore, lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes and whole grains are essential in the food for childrento ensure their healthy development.  However, the reality is that not all the children in India have access to proper nutrition, especially in their formative years, in fact millions still don’t. The silver lining is that the situation has become far better than what it was used to be, largely thanks to the efforts of various NGOs for children and people who donate to charity.

Mid-day Meal Menu

Healthy food for children is important for several reasons:

  • Early childhood – from birth to eight years is one of the most critical periods in children’s growth. It is during this period children grow fast and acquire all their basic skills including language, socio-emotional development (attachment, sense of right and wrong); and fine (ability to hold pencils) and gross (balance, skip) motor skills. Vital nutrients in fruits and vegetables like vitamin C, vitamin A, fibre, folate, potassium, magnesium and phytochemicals help keep the body and mind healthy. This is why doctors and health experts specify on including more fruits and vegetables in food for children.
  • Countless studies in the past have also highlighted importance of healthy eating during childhood.  A balanced diet has been shown to increase brain function, improve behaviour and concentration of students and improve children’s learning capacity and academic performance.  According to the World Health Organization (WHO), healthy nutrition also protects children against obesity and chronic diseases like cancer, eating disorders and cardiovascular diseases. In addition, following a healthy diet during the early stages of growth also helps one remain healthy in adulthood and at old age.

On the other hand, chronic malnutrition has been proved to leave irreversible damage on children, both in their physical and mental development. UNICEF states that about 7.6 million children around the world die before age five.

A Healthy Diet

Dieting. Weight loss. Slim Down. Lose weight. All those are big buzz words, especially around the first of the year. I have never really followed a diet plan or at least one of the well known plans like Weight watchers, Jenny Craig and the like. When I wanted to lose weight after my kids were born, I tried the natural way, Eat less, Exercise More. It worked for me….for the most part. When the Shaklee Diet Plan called Cinch came out, I wanted to learn why it was different from the rest.

I had tried some shakes before and really didn’t like the taste or consistency. Some left a bad aftertaste. Cinch was and is different. The most important reason is the science behind the program. It is all natural and clinically proven to work. I like that about all the Shaklee products. The shakes and bars are filled with protein and fiber and all have a low glycemic index.The Shaklee Cinch diet uses Leucine a muscle burning amino acid that has been shown to help you retain your muscle mass while skimming off visceral fat and help you lose the inches you want. 

Shaklee found in their research that elite athletes and body builders often use leucine to help retain their muscle mass while they train and complete. Our metabolism works through our muscle mass so you want to retain that. But most diets, when you begin losing weight, you lose muscle, fat, water etc. So your weight may change but your metabolism changes, too. You reach your goal, you begin eating again and what happens? You begin to gain the weight back; you seem to not be able to eat as much as before you lost weight. Many often gain more than they had lost. That’s the Yo-Yo dieting cycle. With Shaklee Cinch, you retain that muscle and lose just fat and weight and inches.

One of the studies done with Cinch to help to prove its effectiveness was done at a YMCA. The participants worked out 3 times per week, including cardio and resistance training. Half the participants got a Cinch shake following their workout, half did not. After 6 months, the group using the Cinch shake following workouts gained 50% more muscle while losing 25% more weight. With only 3 shakes a day, these were the results. Then image what would happen it you used Cinch after each workout, 5-7 times per week.

Brad Lamm, an interventionist and frequent contributor to Dr Oz, wrote a book called Just 10 Pounds. In there he mentions using Cinch with some of his clients. He talks about developing a healthy relationship with food and making it for life. Starting with just 10 pounds can help you find continued success in weight loss.

Shaklee Diet plans in the past have been Slim Plan and I love Dieting, at least since I have been involved for the past 11 years. The improvements that Shaklee has done in their diet plan are really remarkable. And we don’t promote using this plan for just a short time. This  is a lifestyle change and adjustment. The Cinch plan includes protein packed shakes, snack and meal bars, energy green tea, supplements as well as a wonderful CinchWellness site where you can track your calories and activities, get recipes and tips from experts as well as support from others using Cinch also. To begin we often recommend 2 shakes per day, healthy snacks along with a nutritious dinner. But I always recommend that you fit Cinch into your life, don’t make your life fit into the Shaklee Diet. Many diets are unrealistic with the rules, the points, the special food to buy with no education on how to cook healthy yourself. Cinch is simple: Drink a protein packed delicious shake for breakfast and lunch ( or just breakfast or Lunch), eat a healthy snack of raw fruits and veggies or a Cinch snack bar when you are hungry and have a  nutritious dinner. Enjoy some Cinch energy tea instead of diet soda and fill in the gaps with powerful nutrients in the Cinch 3-in-1 boost supplements.
Grab and Go, Shake and drink, Move and move and you will see the results. You will enjoy the inches falling away and not miss those lost pounds.

And in the end the Shaklee diet products as well as all the other natural clinically proven products are 100% guaranteed. So if you don’t like them, the company will refund your money. It doesn’t happen often as we recommend you hook up with a Shaklee distributor who can help to match the products  with you that best suit your needs. If you need to cinch a few inches and lose a few pounds, connect with me while I make suggestions to help you turn in a direction of feeling and living better.

Why We Need To Eat Healthy Food To Stay Healthy

A poor diet can lead to multiple health problems: headaches, fatigue, and somnolence. Natural foods may reduce stress, reduce anxiety, and bring relief to the common complaints listed above. Perhaps, many of your problems arise from the foods found in your fridge.

A healthy diet will increase vitality, improve complexion, and combat the ill effects of the polluted world we live in. Engineered foods contain unhealthy amounts of sugar, salt, and even more toxic chemicals. Many engineered foods have little nutritional value. With so little nutritional intake, no wonder you feel tired.

Some foods which start out having nutritional value get adulterated before they reach the market. Consumers cover peanut butter with a sugar-laced icing. Ketchup is merely sugar flavored tomatoes. Soy, which is healthy, gets turned into a sauce by adding caramel, sugar and salt.

For cooking oils, salad dressings, and mayonnaise, the bottle may say “cold pressed”, but the products have been heat processed to increase not their nutritional value but their self life.

Beverages, desserts and even yogurt can contain aspartame and other artificial sweeteners. Potato chips, pretzels, licorice and candy are just junk foods. Pizza, cake, pastries, waffles, pancakes, crackers, and most breads contain unhealthy white flour.

The energy in energy bars is often just sugar. Often there is no cream in whipped cream. These processed foods are unhealthy, and you suffer when you ingest them. Isn’t it time for a change? Eat healthy to reduce cholesterol. Stop poisoning yourself. Switch brands. Better, purchase pure and unprocessed farm-fresh products, or grow them yourself.

Here are some facts about healthy eating. Process foods are relatively new in human history. For millennium, we humans thrived on a natural diet. Nature provided the proteins, complex carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, water, and a dependable source of vitamins. Your energy factory, the intracellular mitochondria, depend on these natural foods.


Fruits contain essential nutrients; vegetables, important anti-oxidants. They boost your immune system and protect you from disease. The grocery self is loaded with salt, sugar and chemicals that are hidden in the foods we buy.

All major health organizations tell us to limit our intake of processed foods. These organization include health departments, heart and stroke foundations, and cancer societies. Perhaps, a small amount of processed foods will do little harm; but both children and adults are addicted to the taste of unhealthy foods.

Sugar-laced, processed food is sadly the norm. Become a prudent shopper. Read labels. Choose high quality foods. Avoid excess sugar and salt. Avoid additives and preservatives. Don’t feed your pets better than you feed yourself. Get back to basics.

Healthy is not boring; healthy means variety. Choose whole grain products such as whole rye, brown rice. Choose breads and cereals made from these wholesome grains. Choose fish, chicken, lamb, turkey for protein. Cheese, soy, eggs and plain yogurt are also good sources of protein.

If you need to stock something with a long self life, try canned tuna or salmon. Eat a large variety of colorful plant foods: vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, and beans. A small amount of healthy fat can be obtained from olive oil, butter, olives, avocados, and natural peanut or almond butter.

If you can afford the small added price of going organic, purchasing organic products may well pay for itself by reducing the diseases from ingesting artificial chemicals. Organic may reduce you chance of suffering from heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis. For your own health, take charge of your eating habits. Switch to pure, simple, life-sustaining foods. Let holistic nutrition shape your body and heal your mind.

It is very important we eat healthy and balanced food in order to stay physically healthy. If you suffer from tinnitus or ringing in your inner ear, it is even more important you eat healthy food in order to get rid of the pesky sound.

Though these children have acknowledged the role of Akshaya Patra’s mid-day meal in making a difference in their lives, the organisation attributes its success to the people who donate to charity generously.

The organisation provides innumerable options for people who want to donate to NGO.  Most importantly, donating online can help save tax. A contribution of ₹ 500 or more can get 100% tax exemption in India. Feeding a child a year costs only ₹ 750 and the organisation also accepts donations in the form of a kitchen equipment or meal delivery van.

The NGO in Karnataka operates in six places and feeds 463,682 children from 2,629 schools.  Two kitchens- HK Hill and Vasanthpura are located in Bengaluru, while the other four kitchens function in other parts of Karnataka like Ballari, Hubballi, Mangaluru and Mysuru.  Akshaya Patra takes extra care to ensure that school children get all the nutrients needed for growth. To make the meal more appealing, these kitchens have designed special menus for Karnataka which include sambar, rasam, dal and rice.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation wants to serve more school children in India so that classroom hunger will disappear for good and all we get are goodmoral stories for childrenfrom all locations we serve at.

Yes, that’s right – there are specific foods that are especially great for the brain – these foods contain nutrients which help improve and maintain focus, and improve brain health.

We’ve all heard that breakfast is an essential meal of the day, and it’s so true. If you feel about it, about 12 hours pass between your time you eat dinner and breakfast the following morning, so if your child skips breakfast, he’s missing out on a whole host of nutrients to obtain him through the morning. Research has revealed that kids who eat breakfast fare better academically and have fewer behavior problems than kids who skip breakfast. Is sensible doesn’t it? I know if I’m hungry, it’s difficult to focus on work, and it can make me crabby.

Brain health is equally as important for older kids and adults, and so i will be trying these healthy brain-boosting recipes for those my kids as well as myself. Although I wasn’t a big breakfast eater as a kid or teen, as a mom, I have been attempting to make sure my boys consume a healthy breakfast each morning, and can include as many brain-boosting foods as possible.

1. Blueberry-Maple Muffins

Whole-wheat flour and flaxseeds give these maple syrup-sweetened blueberry muffins a tasty, nutty flavor. Compared to a traditional form of the recipe, they have 4 times the dietary fiber and substitute healthful monounsaturated fat (canola oil) for saturated fats (butter).

2. Almond-Honey Power Bar

Ideal for breakfast on the go! Golden roasted nuts, seeds and oats are enveloped by flavorful almond butter during these delectably chewy, no-fuss energy bars. Unrefined turbinado sugar adds an in-depth caramelly undertone. Feel free to use light brown sugar instead. Bars stored at 70 degrees will be softer than those which are refrigerated.

3. Orange Polentina

Italians enjoy cornmeal or polenta in countless preparations. Polentina is really a creamier, porridge-like version, often served in the morning. An orange-infused dollop of tangy mascarpone cheese and yogurt is really a rich, delicious topping. But you can skip the mascarpone and double the amount yogurt to save calories. To help keep it quick, we use instant polenta or regular fine cornmeal. For those who have time, the recipe works with stone-ground cornmeal. It will take longer to prepare, 15 to 20 minutes, but will reward you with rich texture.

4. Chocolate Oatmeal

A bowl of oatmeal is an excellent,healthy breakfast for child of any age, however, many kids may complain it’s too boring or tasteless. Offer my Chocolate Oatmeal – it is a delectable take on the original, and that i bet the idea of “chocolate for breakfast” gets your children running to the kitchen! To create, prepare half a cup of oats with 1 cup water or skim milk, based on package directions. Stir in powered cocoa, a little sugar, and a dash of vanilla flavoring into the prepared oatmeal, after which top with your children’s favorite fruits like berries or half a sliced banana. This energy-boosting breakfast could keep them – and you – feeling full and satisfied until lunchtime.

5. Fruity Breakfast Milkshake

What kid doesn’t love a milkshake? This healthy version – is a fruit smoothie in disguise – comes complete with plenty of fiber, vitamins, minerals, along with a shot of energizing protein. Inside a blender, combine 3/4 cup milk (use skim, soy, or almond milk), half a banana, a mug of frozen mixed berries, and three to 5 ice cubes. Blend until smooth and frothy.

Healthy Diet Tips for Seniors Over 60

Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your outlook, and stabilizing your mood.

For seniors, a healthy diet is incredibly important. Maintaining a proper diet helps seniors to age with grace and helps them to maintain the optimal health levels. Proper diet is very important to the proper functioning of the mind and body, and this is especially true for the changing dietary needs as one age. Seniors are more prone to the development of a wide range of different health conditions that require special nutritional considerations. While it is not always easy to provide a senior with the optimum nutrition, a healthy eating plan can not only improve the senior’s quality of living, it can reduce their risks of developing certain diseases.

Focus on Fresh

Fresh fruits and vegetables are one of the most essential components of a healthy diet for seniors. Fruits like berries and citrus are great sources of vitamins, and vegetables in a rainbow of colors will provide most of the necessary nutrients. But not everyone likes to eat fruits and vegetables or knows how to prepare them. That’s why experienced nutrition staff in an assisted living environment can be such valuable partners in helping your loved ones have a healthy diet.

Know what the senior needs

As one ages, their dietary needs change as well. It is important to understand that the recommended daily allowances (calories, fat, sodium, sugar, and more) are different and should be adhered to in order to provide the senior with the best quality diet possible. For example, after the age of 50, a woman only needs 1,600 calories a day; and a man, after the age of 50 only needs 2,000 calories a day.

Natural Fiber

Fiber is an integral part of a healthy diet for seniors; enough daily fiber intakes may prevent constipation, which is a big concern among seniors. Seniors often sweets enough fiber since the high-fiber foods they once enjoyed are crunchy or hard to chew with dentures. A healthy diet tip for seniors would be to look for high fiber foods which are easy to eat like beans, legumes and cooked vegetables, or have a daily fiber supplement.

Power Up with Protein

Getting enough protein is another important part of a healthy balanced diet. Protein builds and maintains muscle, which is crucial at every part of stage of the life span. Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston found that consuming enough protein may even prevent or delay some of the declines in muscle tone sometimes associated with aging.

Increase intake of vitamin B12

B12 is a vital nutrient that the body requires and can only get from food sources or supplements. In addition to a host of other things, the adequate intake of vitamin B12 is important to proper brain functioning. As one gets older, their ability to absorb certain nutrients, including vitamin B12, is reduced, necessitating a need to increase the amount of foods high in B12 in the diet. Good choices are low-fat dairy, juices, and even cereals that are fortified with the vitamin.

Don’t forget about Omega-3 fatty acids

The intake of Omega-3 fatty acids is shown to help improve brain health as well as to reduce the risks of many diseases that are associated with aging. Increasing one’s intake of quality sources of Omega-3 fatty acids from things like oils from flax seeds or canola, oily fish like salmon, or nuts like walnuts will increase the amount of Omega-3 in the body. This can reduce one’s risk of stroke, heart disease,Alzheimer’s, as well as help to lower one’s cholesterol and even reduce the pain associated with arthritis.

Cooking with kids lets kids shine in the kitchen…Try these 8 tips to get started!

I don’t know about you, but in our family, the menu planning is the hub of our entire household. If I don’t know what’s for dinner when I get up in the morning and who is cooking it, my whole day can sort of deteriorate.

Food is also an important part of raising healthy kids, and family meal time can be an important anchor in your children’s lives. Kids that cook are also more likely to be healthy kids If, on top of that, you can give your kids the chance to proudly serve the family a meal that they cooked themselves, you’ll see first-hand how motivated kids are when they are allowed to help with the cooking.

Letting kids cook in the kitchen needs to be done safely, of course. After all, the kitchen is full of sharp knives and dangerously hot appliances. You can’t just turn a four-year-old loose in there, of course. Furthermore, you can’t expect a teenager to suddenly know how to cook safely or proficiently just because they’re old enough. It takes experience to become a good cook, and they can’t get that experience safely without your help. Teaching kids how to cook can be rewarding when you approach it with patience and preparation.

Without some good strategies, the idea of your kids cooking might be a nightmare, or worse, it might not happen at all. That would be a real shame, because kids can learn to be very competent in the kitchen. If you teach kids to cook now, they will learn important skills for when they’re older, plus, they’ll unburden you. Here are some tips to get started tonight:

1. Start cooking with your kids when they are young.
I know, I know! It is so much more time and mess when you have a junior partner in the kitchen! Remember that you are laying a foundation of competence, motivation and enthusiasm, and it is worth the extra time and cleanup. Furthermore, remember that with kids cooking with you in the kitchen, they’re less likely to be geting into mischief elsewhere. And remember, every mess you make together is an opportunity to instill in them the idea that a good cook cleans the kitchen when the cooking is done.

2. Praise the effort and encourage family appreciation.
We have taught our kids to say “thank you for dinner, so-and-so)” before we put a fork to our mouths. The look on the chefs face (even if it’s me!) is: “thank you for acknowledging my work!” This pride leads to enthusiasm, which, of course leads to more cooking!

3. Pay attention to what’s age appropriate when cooking with kids
From safety to convenience, you will approach a meal differently if your child is 4 or 10, also if they’ve been helping a lot or if they’re just starting out. There are many considerations with kids cooking to keep it safe and also manageable, but don’t let them stand in your way.

4. Leave your perfectionism behind.
With kids cooking, the results will vary lol! Success will come, though, if you let your kids cook enough to learn how.

If you yourself are an accomplished cook and really enjoy cooking, this process might be a tough one. Be flexible if you want to share your love of cooking with your kids. Cooking with a four year old might only be produce pasta and Prego, but if you gradually introduce the idea of improving the jar sauce, they’ll eventually learn how to make pasta sauce from scratch.

5. Cook real food together.
I have a problem with most kid cookbooks. It’s all well and good to make smiley face apple snacks with peanut butter and raisins, but what I really need is a meal. It’s important for you and your kids to cook real food together. There’s nothing wrong with making food attractive, but taste, nutrition are more important, and kids need to learn how to cook actual meals.

Along the same lines, many children’s cookbooks focus on desserts. Everybody loves cookies, but you don’t need help making cookies every day. With you and your kids cooking together, cook the food your family needs. Most of the time, that means breakfast, lunch or dinner. So help them develop a few simple, tasty recipes that they can make with less and less help.

6. Teach kids to cook their favorite meals
Ask kids what they like to eat, and start with that. Involve them in the menu planning and the grocery planning.

7. Be consistent!

Work up to having each child helping you cook once a week on the same night if possible. Having a set time reminds not only them, but you too. Let them choose a night and stick to it! You will be amazed at how habit begets skills and competence.

8. Remember the big picture.
Is it easier to just keep them out of the kitchen so you can cook efficiently and more quickly? Of course. But think of the long range goal—you want them to gain skills, and you want them to actually learn how to cook to contribute to your household.

Out of all the household chores, getting kids involved in cooking can be the most daunting. Give these 8 tips a try and see how easy it can be to get your kids cooking!

Burning Weight Loss

So many people today go out of their way just to prepare good healthy foods for their family. Their goal is making sure their meals are fit and tasty without the stress of putting on unnecessary pounds while everyone maintains a good diet. The truth is; families want what’s best for everyone by preparing and making quick, healthy, meals as long as they help fight weight gain, which are made nutritious. However, the main problem is many may accidentally misinterpret the correct foods they need to eat to keep up that goal. The trick that we all must realize is making sure you know the right foods that you are eating which are truly healthy. There are so many foods we eat everyday when we think they are healthy but we overlook them in a huge way even when our intentions are good. The good thing is; the right kind of healthy foods are not hard to discover. Anyone can always learn to substitute many foods they love to eat, while still preparing them in a healthy way.

There are actually some things you can eat that spike the metabolism, trigger hormones that release fat, and eliminate toxins that make it hard for your body to shed unwanted pounds. They must be consumed as part of a clean diet. 

A lot of people who prepare healthy meals can still have little effect of weight gain to help burn fat as long as they know the types of foods which are necessary, even when it means they need to alternate their foods that they eat every week that they are so used to preparing. For example, these foods are a healthy substitute anyone should switch to your diet anytime with breakfast, lunch, and dinner:

  • Almonds and other nuts like cashews (with skins intact)

  • Dairy products (fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese)

  • Eggs

  • Turkey and other lean meats – They Build muscle and strengthen your immune system

  • Berries, especially blueberries – They improve satiety, prevent cravings

  • Peanut butter because it boosts testosterone

  • Fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, mackerel) These fish help trigger fullness

  • Grapefruit & Oranges

    Lowers insulin, regulates blood sugar and metabolism

  • Drinking Green tea   

  • Chili peppers – A great source which spikes metabolism

  • Green Vegetables Spinach and Broccoli make the top A list

  • Whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, whole grain cereal) – Small doses prevent body from storing fat. Eating regular pasta and white rice only adds the sugar and fat
  • Beans and legumes especially black beans – They also build muscle and regulate digestion. Black beans are an excellent source of fiber

  • However, the real culprit to weight gain is not just how much food you may eat every day but how much sugar is consumed in them. Eating too much sugar in our everyday foods that people may eat in excess like in soda, white bread, and many types of desserts like ice cream and cupcakes, will pack on those unwanted pounds. Sugar is poison. Limit desserts, as much as possible, even for those who have a sweet tooth. There is no harm having them from time to time, but limit them to only once in a while.

How many people today misinterpret buying foods that say sugar free? Never think and focus where it says “sugar free”. Foods where it says “sugar free” actually have more sugar than they make it out to be. You may think you are doing the right thing eating foods that have “0 trans fat” and having drinks like “fruit juices”, are the right way to go, to stay healthy, even when using them during preparation; but that is never the case.

For example, what Is Trans Fat? Trans fat has been shown to raise your bad cholesterol levels, lower your good (HDL) cholesterol levels, cause heart disease, strokes and type 2 diabetes. It will not help your weight go down as you may think.

It has absolutely no positive benefit to the human body in any way, yet it has been proven to harm the body in a variety of ways. Trans fat should pretty much be avoided completely.

Moderation is the word we all need to master and remember. Despite moderation, once you stick with and knowing how to substitute the foods that are healthy for you and your family, you and everyone will still enjoy the taste that you are accustomed to. Your taste buds will not go away. Who wouldn’t like eating proper foods that they can still love when they are prepared and eaten in a healthy manner while eliminating the unnecessary sugar to their diet? For anyone who ever wanted to change their diet and well as eating foods to help shed off those pounds; know the true foods that will help fight that extra weight and start today?
