Foods That Make You Feel Good

by on Mar.31, 2012, under Health

To help improve your memory and focus, stabilize your mood and lose weight, try following these rules for overall well-being.

 

Stop eating so many processed foods. Understandably it is difficult to stop eating them entirely, but eating too much of these sugar- and salt-loaded foods can shrink areas of your brain that affect your mood.

Start eating more whole foods, like fruits, vegetables and whole grains. They contain nutrients that your brain needs to function.

Go for grass-fed. Grass-fed meat and dairy from grass-fed animals contains more omegas, which can help form new brain connections.

Eat a range of foods. Try different colors from different groups each week. You’ll get more of the nutrients your brain needs.

6 Tips to Fall Asleep Faster

by on Mar.31, 2012, under Health

Many of us run through our days and don’t think about sleeping until our heads just hit the pillow. In order to sleep better, you need to prepare for sleep during the day, give yourself a bedtime and get yourself into a bedtime routine in a controlled environment. Follow these tips to catch more Zs.

 

Exercising has been proven to help with a variety of ailments, including sleeplessness. Morning or afternoon workouts are best, as you don’t want to exercise for at least 3 hours prior to bedtime.

Get some morning sunlight. Your internal clock starts to wake up and regulate itself. Sunlight between 6 and 8:30 am is best.

Managing your stress can help rid your mind of obsessive and upsetting thoughts that can creep in as you are replaying your day in your head right before you fall asleep.

Take naps if you need them. Make sure they are less than 30 minutes and before mid-afternoon in order to keep your regular sleep rhythm.

Eat healthy and have a routine. Although most Americans eat a large dinner, you’ll find it’s best for your digestion and sleep if you eat a large breakfast, moderate lunch and smaller dinner (at least 2 hours before bed). Reduce caffeine and alcohol, and drink most of your fluids before dinner.

Establish a ritual. Preparing your body for sleep and keeping the same sleep/wake times will help you fall and stay asleep longer. Get rid of electronics in the bedroom, and keep the temperature lower at night.

Add Citrus for These Benefits

by on Mar.31, 2012, under Health

Not only are oranges, grapefruit, lemons and limes delicious and easy to eat, but they also have these healthy benefits:

 

The amounts of vitamin C in citrus fruits may shorten the duration and severity of common colds.

These fruits are rich in flavonoids, which can increase your “good” HDL cholesterol and decrease “bad” LDL cholesterol.

Citrus fruits contain a lot of water and fiber, which can help you stay full longer, and therefore eat less.

Citrus juice can enhance flavors of food, from meat to salads. Skip adding salt and add a little juice to give dishes flavor without the added sodium.

Tea and Coffee Both Have Benefits

by on Mar.30, 2012, under Health

While most people think that tea is better for you than coffee, there are actually health benefits for both. They both contain antioxidants, and coffee is linked to a decreased risk of depression, while tea may lessen anxiety. Follow these tips to get the most benefit out of your morning drink.

 

Caffeinated coffee and tea have the most benefits, but if you are sensitive to caffeine, have digestive issues or have sleep or anxiety issues, reach for the decaf.

Take your drinks black—adding milk or sugar products can interfere with the healthy compounds found in these drinks.

Filter your coffee. Without it, your drink will have an oily residue that can raise your “bad” LDL cholesterol.

One Surprising Superfood

by on Mar.29, 2012, under Health

Did you know that a popular kitchen staple, the onion, is a superfood? Onions help boost immunity, may protect against heart disease and boost immune health. They also contain flavonoids on the outer layers, and have high flavonoid content in general.

 

While it would be ideal for our bodies to eat half a raw onion a day, it’s not always practical. But it is easy to add a few slices to a salad, dice onions and throw them in a soup or main dish, or make onion soup.
