  • Keeping your Emotional Health

    Posted on March 3, 2019 by Wendy

    Emotional health is an important part of overall health. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They are able to cope with life’s challenges. They can keep problems in perspective and bounce back from setbacks. They feel good about themselves and have good relationships.

    Being emotionally healthy does not mean you are happy all the time. It means you are aware of your emotions. You can deal with them, whether they are positive or negative. Emotionally healthy people still feel stress, anger, and sadness. But they know how to manage their negative feelings. They can tell when a problem is more than they can handle on their own. They also know when to seek help from their doctor.

    Research shows that emotional health is a skill. There are steps you can take to improve your emotional health and be happier.

  • 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 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.

  • Losing inches vs pounds

    Posted on February 10, 2018 by Wendy

    As we age the struggle to lose pounds seems to get
    greater as each year passes.

    How I remember those days when weight dropped off
    just as easy as it was put on.

    Our metabolism slows down and changes especially
    after menopause hits for us ladies and the ideas of
    losing that weight as quick as we gained it is not as
    easy as we would like it to be.

    I have been charting my weight loss and muscle mass
    as I do my best to eat a more alkaline diet and for the
    past month the scale stayed the same

    I however feel lighter in the mid section and on my buttocks

    So this morning I took out the measuring tape and I
    actually have lost a couple inches off both.
    The scale however said the same.

    I have been a bit hard on myself this past month
    thinking why isn't this working?
    So I am here today to share with you
    it's not always about what the scale says.

    I know, as humans we want to chart our success and
    say "hey I lost 10 pounds" however if you are losing
    inches and body fat and gaining muscle it will be
    a greater story to share.

    Check out this fabulous article by Livestrong.com
    It's and excellent perspective on Losing inches vs pounds

  • Emotions Can Make You Sick

    Posted on August 26, 2017 by Wendy

    It's pretty scary how your emotions can make you sick.

    If you have stress, anger, and anxiety it truly can be making you sick
    and forcing you to carry that extra weight.

    It's time to sit down and take a good hard look at what is stressing you out
    and remove it.

    Looks for the things that bring you peace. This is where you will be the happiest and healthiest.

  • Pineapple and Papaya

    Posted on May 5, 2017 by Wendy

    Pineapple and Papaya are an excellent way to add Bromelain to your diet.

    The main reason I love Bromelain is because it is an anti-inflammatory.
    It can help reduce pain, ulcers, joints and swelling.

    Bromelain is also an enzyme that is highly effective antifungal and antibacterial
    which helps your large intestine where most fungus is found.

    Bromelain removes fungus and dead bacteria and helps boosts the healthy flora.

    So to help alleviate the bloating and swelling add some pineapples and papaya
    to your diet. Your body will love you for it!

  • Lack of Sleep Can Lead to Weight Gain

    Posted on March 7, 2017 by Wendy

    Do you ever find that when you are feeling over weight you then notice you haven't been sleeping properly?

    Have many stressful events been happening in your life and suddenly those couple pounds crept up on you?

    Losing out on sleep creates a viscous cycle in your body, making you more prone to various factors
    contributing to weight gain.

    The more sleep-deprived you are, the higher your levels of the stress hormone cortisol will be
    which increases your appetite.

    When you are tired do you find you go for whatever’s going to be easy and make you feel better in the moment?

    Is a bad choice of high fat, high carb foods? Make a commitment to yourself to get those 8 hours of sleep.
    It will lower your level of cortisol and You will make better food choices.

    Your will power will be higher and our body will Thank You for it.
