Tips & Tidbits

Nuts eaten 5 days or more per week can lower the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). Nuts also improve the health of the lining of your arteries. Choose almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia, peanuts, pine nuts and pecans for the highest benefits. The proper amount of nuts per day is a small handful or 1.5 ounces.

Regular exercise has been proven to cut the risk of hip fractures more than milk/dairy intake.

If you can’t get your kids to eat their much-needed vegetables, let them choose how they are prepared or seasoned. Let them dip their veggies in anything they choose; ketchup, dressing, yogurt, even peanut butter or jelly! At least they’re getting the vegetable inside them and all the beneficial nutrients.

If you’re feeling hungry after you’ve eaten, consider if you’ve eaten enough complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and fresh vegetables.

Drink water! Too little will lead to fatigue, hunger, headaches and sugar or carbohydrate cravings.

Lycopene in tomatoes helps give you natural sun protection from within; but not complete protection so use a natural sunscreen with plenty of zinc oxide in it!

Dairy allergy is linked to acne. If you suffer from acne, try to omit dairy for 3-4 weeks to see if your acne improves.

Excess sugar intake increases your chance of developing Type II diabetes by nearly half.

Meditating 2x/day = 47% chance less likely to experience heart attack/stroke resulting in death.

Replace soda with seltzer and fruit juice (with no sugars, natural or artificial)
