  • Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today

    Posted on March 14, 2018 by Wendy

    Someone said to me yesterday "It must be nice doing what you love".
    Made me think because I do wake up each day thankful that another day is upon me.

    I guess what I love is meeting new people, building great relationships, and seeing people smile.
    If I can be a small part of their smile my day was lived with some kind of purpose.

    It's amazing how your entire overall health is affected when you are happy and smile.
    Your body will thrive when filled with positive thoughts.

    Giving the gift of a smile is even better!

    Have a fabulous day everyone and Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today :)

  • Plant Proteins

    Posted on March 11, 2018 by Wendy

    As I have been charting my intake
    of healthy fats, proteins, and veggies
    I came across this great article from
    Dr. Robert O Young about how to
    get your protein without eating animal
    protein.

    Protein Love Affair

    Protein is an essential nutrient which plays many key roles in our bodies,
    but despite America’s love affair with high protein, our bodies don’t actually need that much.

    Dr. Robert O. Young says, “Our bodies are only 7% protein.
    In contrast to cow’s milk, which is protein rich, human mother’s milk is
    only 5% protein (i.e., better suited to the body’s protein requirements).
    In addition, animal protein foods often contribute factors to the body,
    which are unneeded and then represent a challenge to dispose of (e.g., saturated fats).”

    The recommended daily intake of protein is .8 grams of protein for every kilogram in weight.
    Making adjustments for how plant proteins digest somewhat differently from animal proteins,
    The Vegetarian Resource Group arrives at .9 grams of protein per kilogram body weight.
    That’s about 71 grams of protein for a vegan male weighing 174 pounds.

    Plant sources of protein are delicious, abundant, and very healthy for your heart.
    Protein can be alkalizing!

    Here's a list of 5 common vegetarian protein sources, and the amount of protein they provide:

    EDAMAME (protein per cup = 17g)
    Along with high protein and essential amino acids.
    Edamame are also highly alkaline because of their magnesium content.
    But be sure to buy organic, non-GMO edamame, because 90% of soy products are genetically modified.

    HEMP SEEDS (protein per 2 tbsp. = 10g)
    High in protein and loaded with heart health benefits.

    CHIA SEEDS (protein per 2 tbsp. = 5g)
    Loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids and protein means these tiny seeds can decrease the risk of heart disease.

    BEANS (protein content per cup of mung = 49g; black = 39g; kidney = 43g; adzuki = 39g; lentils = 18g)
    Of course, beans are high in protein, but they’re also high in fiber,
    iron, zinc, calcium and more.

    QUINOA (protein per cup = 8g)
    Even though we eat quinoa as though it were a grain,
    it really isn’t a grain at all. It’s a seed.
    The source plant is related to beets, spinach, and Swiss chard.

    Whether you’re fueling for your work day or fueling for a workout,
    a little protein throughout the day, from vegan sources, really does go a long way.
