It’s Harvest time! Why Eating Seasonal Is Great For Your health

fall

As we head into a new season, it’s important that we start incorporating seasonal foods into our diet. When we eat with the seasons we get foods that are at the peak of freshness and we can take advantage of the nutritional content that we would miss with out of season foods. It’s also great for our environment. Here are some healthy tips for eating in season:

It’s good for you- Eating seasonal foods helps to support our bodies natural cleansing and healing abilities. When you eat with the seasons you replenish your body with a wide variety of important vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutritents that you need to maintain vibrant health. 

It’s good for the environment- Eating in season and purchasing local reduces the amount of miles your food has to travel to reach your plate. It cuts back on the amount of fuel used and it reduces pollution.

It’s Sustainable- Seasonal foods that are grown organically are more sustainable because they are grown by farmers that care about the planet. By not using toxic chemicals, GMOs and by rotating crops to increase soil fertility, these farmers are producing healthier foods and protecting the planet.

It’s economical- When you buy seasonal organic and local foods you are supporting local businesses within in your community. You will also find that many local foods cost less than foods that are shipped in, thus saving money on your grocery bill.

It’s now fall and if the cool weather hasn’t hit you yet, it’s not far off. Make sure you adjust your diet and lifestyle to gain maximum advantage. You’ll be thankful and the planet will be thankful. Have a great fall and don’t forget to visit me “here” for great information and programs for your healthy Journey.

Namaste,

Summertime Greens

Leafy greens

Yeah, it’s that time of year again. Salad season! Ok, maybe it’s salad season all of the time, or it should be. The health benefits of our leafy green friends are vast and easy to incorporate into our daily diet. They are also a delicious addition to any meal. So go for it and stuff your face with these nutritional wonders. Salad is only one way to eat leafy greens. Here are some other great tips to serve leafy greens with your meals and also some nutritional tips as well. Enjoy!

Benefits of leafy greens-Where do I start? Leafy greens are choc full of vitamins and minerals and phyto-chemicals that help fight disease. They are full of water which keeps you hydrated during the hot summer months and also contributes to beautiful skin and hair. They contain lots of fiber which keeps you full and contributes to weight loss. Fiber and antioxidants also contribute to a healthy heart by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. They are an excellent source of folate which improves memory and can ward off depression. If you want to detox your body and get on the path to looking and feeling younger  then leafy greens need to be part of your daily diet.

Leafy Green Faves

Arugula-A staple for my garden. It’s a leafy green vegetable with a peppery taste. It is generally used in salads, but it also makes a great pesto. The phytochemicals and antioxidants help boost memory. It’s also a good source of potassium which helps prevent osteoporosis.

Collard Greens-A member of the cabbage family, I love to steam these or saute them in coconut oil.  They are a great source of beta carotene which is good for vision. They also contain vitamin k which strengthens the bones.

Spinach-Popeye had it going on. This is  one of the most nutrient dense plants on the planet.  It’s high in fiber and low in calories which makes it perfect for weight loss. It is a high source of iron and vitamin B which helps to maintain a strong circulatory system and promotes healthy skin and hair. Throw it in a salad, cook it or eat it raw. You will reap the benefits.

These are just a few of my favorites. You probably have your favorites too. Anyone ever heard of kale? You get the picture. Get some leafy greens in your diet today! Put them in a salad! cook them! juice’em! Just eat them!

Here is a favorite summertime salad recipe for you:

Arugula salad:

Nuts and Seeds-A Handful A Day Goes A Long Way

Mixed-Nut-Words-Yum

I’ve always been a big fan of nuts and seeds. My family always had a bowl on the dining room table or in front of the TV where we could relax and crack open a variety of nuts for a quick snack. Seeds were a favorite to add to salads and other dishes. Lately I’ve been incorporating nuts and seeds into my diet for a variety of reasons. They taste great and they have tons of healthy benefits.

Here are a few of my favorite types of nuts and seeds and reasons that you should think about adding more of these fantastic foods to your diet.

Almonds-Who doesn’t love these little gems? Almonds are packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats. These healthy fats are known to lower LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Almonds also contain anti-oxidants which help mop up free radicals. They are known to reduce the rise in blood sugar after a meal and their low glycemic index makes it a healthy food for diabetics.

Chia Seeds-Are you looking for an energy boost for your workout? Chia seeds pack in the protein to give you energy while also stabilizing blood sugar to reduce body fat and regulate appetite. They are a perfect workout supplement. They are also are packed with omega-3 fatty acids which improves your mood and brain health. They sure have come along way from the chia pet.

Walnuts-A walnut kind of looks like a small brain doesn’t it? Well, it’s quite a coincidence since walnuts contain many health benefits for the brain. Walnuts are known to help prevent dementia, reduce stress and are helpful for anti-aging. Walnuts contain a high amount vitamin E and also flavanoids which help destroy free radicals that can effect brain health. The absence of dangerous free radicals also improves the skin and helps lower blood pressure which reduces stress.

Hemp seeds-You can’t smoke these and you won’t get high, but the health benefits are amazing! Hemp can provide you with a balanced ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamin A, E and D, and many B vitamins. It is also rich in sodium, calcium, dietary fiber and iron. Hemp seeds are known to reduce inflammation which can improve heart and brain health. They are also a healthy appetite suppressant. Try them with your eggs in the morning. They add a rich nutty flavor to your breakfast.

Cashews-When it comes to cancer prevention, cashews should be included in your diet. Cashews contain proanthocyanidins which are flavanols that actually starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing. Studies have also shown that cashews can reduce your risk of colon cancer. Cashews are also rich in magnesium and copper which strengthens bones and and provides substance and flexibility to bones and joints.

Pumpkin seeds-Looking for a nutritional power house? Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc which supports a healthy immune system, increases cell division and growth, improves sleep and mood, and sexual function. They are known to improve prostate health in men and to reduce symptoms of menopause and post menopause in women. I love to eat these raw or sprinkle them on my salad.

The bottom line, nuts and seeds are a healthy addition to your diet. They are delicious, nutritious, and they help you look and feel younger. A handful a day goes a long way, so why not go nuts? Or seedy? Ok, that was lame, but you get the picture.

I’m always available to talk about your health. Why not take the next step and take me up on a complimentary health strategy session? “Click Here” for your complimentary “Empower Your Health Strategy Session.” Together we’ll get you on the path to looking and feeling younger.

What’s All The Stress About?

Stressed image

Today stress is a major cause of health issues in our lives from mental health issues to physical disease. It can create havoc on your mind and body. Did you know that with careful evaluation of your life and by eliminating certain habits you can remove most sources of stress form your life?

It’s that easy!

Stress is a response to challenges in life, and life isn’t that exciting without challenges, so we need a healthy way to deal with stress.

Stress can effect our health in many ways: 

-Poorly managed stress can accelerate aging in our bodies and in our minds.

-It can cause weight gain or loss through emotional eating patterns.

-Stress increases inflammation in our bodies which increases the chance of diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

-Depression is many time stress related.

Is this you?

-Financial stress?

-Relationship stress?

-Career stress?

-Lifestyle stress?

Relax! It can all be reversed. You got this!

-Eat Healthy!-That’s right. What and how you eat can reduce stress significantly. Evaluate your eating habits.

-Avoid sugars and processed foods throughout your day. Eat real food!

-Don’t skip breakfast. Breakfast kickstarts your metabolism and helps keep your blood sugar levels steady throughout the day which reduces stress.

-Eat little and often. This will keep your energy levels steady and increase positive productivity.

-If your eating healthy, you will look good and feel good. Looking good and feeling good eliminates stress.

-Move-Even light exercise can lower stress levels. Combine exercise with a healthy diet and feel the stress go away. A fit healthy body keeps you looking and feeling good. When you feel and look good there is less stress. Are you seeing a pattern here?

-Exercise your mind- Did you know that meditation has been around for thousands of years? There’s a reason for that. Take time for some simple breathing exercises or light meditation when you’re feeling stressed. It’s worth the effort.

-Sleep-Always take time for self-care. Sleep is an important component of self care and reducing stress. Take time to unplug, rest and recharge your body. You will awaken with more energy, vitality, and happiness.

-Socialize-Studies show that those who socialize regularly and are active in their community live longer. Increased socialization reduces stress and alleviates depression. Developing positive relationships and friendships increases self esteem.

Now you get the picture. Reducing stress in your life is a major factor for anti aging and keeping you looking and feeling younger.

Examine stress in your life. How is it effecting you?

Take some time for a little decompression. The benefits are endless.

A major component to my coaching package is stress reduction. Feeling stressed? “Click Here” for your complimentary “Empower Your Health Strategy Session.” We’ll get to the bottom of what all the stress is about.

Have a relaxing day!

Women’s Health Empowerment

Bringing balance to busy lives - Yoga

Ladies, have you ever wanted something in your life, but found you couldn’t achieve it alone? Has your doctor ever recommended a lifestyle change that you found to be unsustainable? Have you ever received good advice that you were unable to follow?

Do you want to feel more youthful and vibrant? Would you like to improve your mood and have more energy? Are you ready to start feeling better than ever?

I am dedicated to helping you achieve your health goals and live the healthy lifestyle you have always dreamed of.  My program is structured to focus on your individual health goals such as weight management, stress reduction, and anti-aging. I won’t put you on a diet or demand that you to make radical changes to your lifestyle. Together we will work through your lifestyle needs while implementing a nutrition plan to get you on track to a healthy and happy lifestyle.

I coach on a concept called Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!
