Health and Food: Green Eggs and Ham Plus Other Sources of Greens

When considering health and food, green foods are a big plus. Usually when we think of green foods, we think of vegetables, but that doesn't have to be true. Dr. Seuss had the right idea about green eggs and ham if he was talking about this green eggs and ham recipe at WebMD. Check it out, it's the pesto that gives it the green color. So you can see that green foods can be things besides vegetables. And there are a multitude of recipes you can find on the web and vegetarian cookbooks that will add greens to your meals that are creative and attractive. Adding pesto is one of these, as pesto is generally made from basil and olive oil. Olive oil gives you some omega-3 fatty acids that are good for your brain and can help lower cholesterol, fight inflammation, reduce the risk of high blood pressure, and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. Basil is rich in antioxidant flavonoids which can help fight off free radical damage and fight inflammation. Green tea powder and powdered blue green algae added to foods are another way to get non-veggie greens and still get the antioxidant benefits.

Health and Food: Green Foods from the Garden
Of course the best green foods are green leafy vegetables and if you can get organic or get some fresh from the garden even better. These not only give you antioxidant power and omega-3s, but also support the liver, provide calcium, good proteins and other vital minerals and vitamins. Veggies are also full of fiber and low calorie so you don't pack on the pounds. You can't go wrong with lots of green veggies for health and food.

Health and Food: Green Foods Supplements
With our busy lifestyles and schedules, I know though that it is often hard to get all our vegetables in. This is where supplementation can help. AFA blue green algae is also a rich source of omega-3s, phytonutrients, plant-based proteins, minerals, and other micronutrients. You can take supplementing with greens a step further with a line of supplements that offer the best superfoods from the water, earth and forests. These convenient daily packets give you the power of medicinal mushrooms, 9 types of algae, and wheat sprouts for superior antioxidant nutrition.

Health and Food: Green Smoothies
Green smoothies are another way to get your green foods on the go. They are very popular now so recipes are easy to find on the internet and social media sites. Our family favorite is kale, blueberries and orange juice blended together. Mix up a batch ahead of time, put in a travel cup and take your green foods with you wherever you go.

Now you know, if you didn't already, some of the benefits and importance of eating green foods. If you are not a big veggie eater or don't have time to get all your veggies in each day, then you have some alternative solutions to still get the health benefits of green foods. Take a tip from Sam I Am and give those green eggs and ham as well as the other tips presented here a try and you'll find that you like them too maybe even in a box or with a fox.

How to Slim Down Without Working Out

Looking for how to slim down without working out? Me too! Of course I know exercise is good for me on many different levels and I'd love to have unlimited time to go to a yoga class, aerobics class, go for a long power walk or bike ride every day or work out at the gym, but the reality is I don't have unlimited time and it seems those activities always get put off. While I will strive to keep getting in as much physical activity and exercise as I can, there are other tips for how to slim down that we can all use.

Slow Down

This relates to eating your meals slower and to living your life with less stress. Overeating is often caused by eating too fast. Your brain and stomach are not communicating well as to when you are full. When eating, pay attention to what you are eating, how it tastes, smells, and feels instead of rushing through your meal. Chew each bite slowly and take the time to enjoy the food. Pause occasionally when eating and notice if your hunger has subsided. Many people are conditioned to eat until they are full or until their plate is clean. Start letting your body lead you to a different type of thinking in this regard and begin to notice when hunger is satisfied instead of being full.

Stress is known to contribute to weight gain. Find ways to deal with stress and slow your life down. This may mean prioritizing what is really important to you and saying no to other things. Or it may just mean you need to make time for that yoga class or meditation time for stress relief. See what works for you and make the commitment to slow down.

Get Some Extra ZZ's
A research study from the University of Michigan reported that 14 pounds a year could be lost just by getting an extra hour of sleep each night. Other studies show that the appetite is stimulated by not getting enough sleep. Less than 7 hours a night has been reported to increase appetite.

What Are You Eating?
Give some thought to where and what you are eating. How often do you eat out? How often do you eat vegetables, whole grains and fruits, versus how often do you eat fried, sugary, simple carbs and processed foods? You can eat more fruits and veggies with their fiber and water filling you up without the high calories. Whole grains are another way to get filled up with less calories. If you eat out, order an appetizer as your meal, order the half order size of a meal that many restaurants offer, see if you can order a child's sized meal or get the whole adult meal, but ask for a doggie bag at the beginning of the meal rather than the end. That way you can go ahead and put half away for lunch or dinner the next day. Another natural solution to how to slim down is to eat several smaller meals throughout the day rather than the traditional 3 big meals.

Meatless Meals
Meals with veggies, beans, lentils and legumes have lots of fiber that fill you up and don't have the fats found in meats. Magazines and the internet are filled with vegetarian recipes these days. Plan several days a week to have meatless meals. This might include doing breakfast without any sausage or bacon, having a sandwich with cheese and a variety of veggies, having grilled eggplant instead of meatballs with your spaghetti or eating a veggie burger instead of a hamburger.

Change Dishes
Actually changing the glasses and plates you use can be a way of how to slim down. Sugary drinks and alcoholic beverages are best to be avoided all together when trying to lose weight, but if you're not ready to let these go completely, use a smaller glass or a taller, skinnier glass. A smaller glass obviously means drinking less, but according to Brian Wansink, PhD at Cornell University, using a tall, thin glass causes people to pour less liquid into it. He also finds that using a smaller plate causes people to fill it with less food without feeling hungry or deprived.

Digestion
When working on how to slim down, good digestion is a must. If food doesn't keep moving through the digestive system, it can become stuck which causes belly fat. Probiotics like acidophilus and bifidus help your body process and digest the foods you eat and keep them moving through the digestive system. Adding enzymes to your diet is another way to support digestion, keep your metabolism high and your fat content low. Taking a high quality enzyme supplement at meals and in between meals, gives your metabolism a boost, burns fat and cleans waste out of the body.

Antioxidants
Adding antioxidant foods high in flavonoids to your diet can help improve metabolism and prevent belly fat. Green tea, dark chocolate, berries, pears, apples, onions, leeks, peppers and other bright colored veggies are good sources of antioxidants.

Healthy Snacks
If you need a snack between meals, reach for a piece of fruit, a low sugar yogurt or a green smoothie instead of a candy bar or chips. Popcorn is also a good alternative, but hold the butter and avoid the microwave varieties. My favorite healthy snack is this bar with blue green algae and sprouted grains. Delicious, convenient on the go and loaded with "good for me" nutrition.

Getting exercise is definitely good for weight loss as well as a wide range of other health concerns, but if you find yourself needing more help in the how to slim down department and just can't get in enough exercise time to get those extra pounds off, give some of these tips a try. You've nothing to lose by trying them out... except that extra fat.

Aging Gracefully and Secrets to Longevity

We all want to enter our senior years aging gracefully and being as healthy as we possibly can. After all, what's the use in living a long life if that longevity comes with mental decline, pain, chronic disease and poor quality of life. There are natural solutions that have been shown to lead to aging gracefully that you can start using now.

Nutrition is an obvious key to aging gracefully. Having a healthy balanced diet improves your overall general health. Avoid foods high in sugar and processed foods that have no real nutritional value since they can damage collagen and elastin and affect your health in numerous ways like contributing to inflammation and chronic disease. Foods that contain fiber and antioxidants can help with collagen production and production of new cells while fighting off free radicals that can damage cells.

Help Your Body Repair Itself
Not as obvious is some of the ways you can support your body in regenerating itself towards aging gracefully. For example, adult stem cells have the ability to divide and renew themselves for long periods of time, and they can give rise to specialized cells. Stem cells have the remarkable ability to repair and regenerate your body. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a skin cell. New stem cells can migrate to the areas of the body where they are needed most as we grow older thus serving as a repair system for the body. No matter what age you are now, you can work towards aging gracefully by giving your adult stem cells a boost through nourishing them. One way to do this is by taking a stem cell support supplement  that has been shown to increase the growth of adult stem cells in in vitro laboratory studies, that supports the body's natural renewal system with nourishing ingredients, that provides nutrition that enables stem cells to flourish, and that protects existing stem cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. This supplement provides nutrition for adult stem cells to reproduce and has the antioxidant capacity to protect existing stem cells from the harmful effects of free radicals which is especially important during the natural aging process.

Another way to help the body regenerate itself for aging gracefully is to adopt lifestyle changes that research is showing can increase the length of your telomeres. As we age, these telomeres, which are the ends of the chromosomes, get shorter making us more prone to disease. There is research now suggesting that we can lengthen these by making changes in diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes. Let's take a look at what some of these changes you can make include.

Natural Solutions for Longevity
Socialize
Maintaining an active social life is an important key to aging gracefully. Many people over 100 years old who are still happy and healthy will tell you that a strong social network is one of the most important factors to keeping them young-at-heart. Having social engagements and friends keeps us moving forward toward events in life rather than stagnating in the same place. We are also more likely to stay active, make the effort to look and feel our best, and be mentally alert by staying socially active. Whether you stay social by actually leaving the house or having people visit you or stay connected on the computer, be sure to feed and nurture your social network. Research from Australia has found that people with more friends live longer than those with fewer friends. The friends you pick for your social interactions can also have an influence on longevity. You are more likely to adopt similar lifestyles to those of your friends. For example, if you have friends who eat healthy and you eat out with them, you are more likely to eat healthy. If you hang out with friends that eat fattening foods, you are more likely to join them and increase your chance of weight gain.

Stay Active
Some of the healthiest people in their 80s and 90s are those that stay active. They regularly exercise and involve themselves in community events and organizations. Regular exercise of at least 30 minutes a day each day can go a long way to helping decrease the risk of colon cancer, digestive issues and give you many other health benefits. You can break that 30 minutes down into smaller sessions throughout the day if 30 minutes at a time is too much. There are numerous exercise programs and you may need to consult with your healthcare practitioner to pick one that is right for you. But in general, some of the exercises that help in aging gracefully include:
  • weight training or strength training to firm up saggy skin and work on muscle tone
  • cardio exercises for heart health
  • yoga to improve circulation, reduce inflammation and stress, and for bone health as it has been shown to increase bone density and improve balance.
  • fat burning exercises help maintain a healthy weight and prevent conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure
  • exercises such as fast walking, weight lifting, weight bearing type exercises and flexibility type exercises that are good for bone health
Become a Napper
Research suggests that people who nap regularly are more likely to remain healthy than people who nap only occasionally or not at all. For instance, people who take regular naps are 37% less likely to die from heart disease than people who don't nap regularly. Experts believe that napping tends to reduce stress hormones in the body, allowing us to relax and enjoy life. Along with napping, make sure you get the amount of quality sleep that you need to maintain optimal health. For most people this is 7 to 8 hours a night. Not getting enough sleep can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, mood disorders and chronic stress. Getting less than 5 hours a night reduces your chances of aging gracefully and your longevity.

Develop a Spiritual Practice
Whether due to the social relationships developed in attending spiritual or religious services or from the positive attitudes and outlooks that come from these types of practices, research has found that those who participate in religious or spiritual services have increased longevity. One study on participants over the age of 65 studied over a 12 year period reported that those attending services more than one time a week showed an increase in the level of a protein that is linked to a strong immune system than those who did not attend services.

Support in a Box
Another of the natural solutions for aging gracefully is an easy and convenient way of getting a lot of supplementation for improving energy, dealing with stress, supporting brain health, nourishing cells and dealing with inflammation. This supplement program  has convenient daily packets that come in a box of 30 packets and are made with natural ingredients that include bluegreen algae, a variety of medicinal mushrooms, ubiquinol, standardized turmeric and gingseng. Ubiquinol is an active antioxidant form of coenzyme Q10 which is important for stress relief and improved energy. Tumeric is good for increasing serotonin in the brain and has been used in Chinese medicine for a very long time to treat depression. Ginseng is known for its usefulness in improving cognitive function, preventing fatigue and increasing energy and the mushrooms in this combination of supplements have been shown useful for everything from increasing mental clarity to providing cellular support and nutrition.

So you see there are quite a few things you can do that lead to aging gracefully and longevity. The sooner you start the better. Start finding and practicing the lifestyle changes and healthy habits that you can develop now and you'll not only be living a healthier life now, but will be investing in a long and happy life into your senior years.

Problems Sleeping? Natural Solutions to Try

Do you have problems sleeping? Well, before reaching for those sleeping pills or frustrating yourself with counting sheep, check out these natural solutions for sleep problems.

Avoid Alcohol
Avoid alcohol before bedtime. Many people think drinking alcohol makes them sleepy, but it leads to increased waking up during the night and can interfere with the REM cycle causing what sleep you do get to be of poor quality.

Get in a Routine
Routine can make a huge difference when it comes to sleeping through the night. One of the ways to create routine around sleep is to come up with your own bedtime ritual. Whether you take a warm bath with aromatherapy oils, read something soothing, meditate, or drink a warm glass of milk, taking the time to intentionally create calm and peace before you go to bed will help you sleep better at night. Start at least ½ an hour before bedtime doing your winding down routine. Having a bedtime routine helps prepare your body for knowing that it is now time for sleep.

Eat Light
Digestion requires a lot of energy, and eating a heavy meal right before bed can definitely interfere with sleep. Not only will a heavy meal keep your body awake and working, you may also suffer from symptoms of indigestion like acid reflux, stomach discomfort, gas, or bloating. Instead, focus on eating a light and healthy dinner at least one hour before bed. To assist your body with digestion, you may also want to supplement your meal with extra enzymes.

Douse the Lights
A dark room makes it easier to go to sleep. Light blocking curtains or shades are one way to darken a room, but some people prefer to use an eye mask. When looking at light don't forget to consider blue light, such as the kind from smart phones, television or PDAs. Research has shown this type of light interferes with natural sleep.

Stop Clockin' Time
Some people constantly look at their alarm clock when they are experiencing problems sleeping. This increases their stress thinking about how much time they have left until the alarm goes off and worrying even more about not being able to go to sleep. If you are one of those that can't stop watching the clock, turn it around or hide it from your sight.

Restrict Caffeine
If you are a coffee drinker, stop drinking it by noon as caffeine can prevent good quality sleep. Even if you are not a coffee drinker, other foods or medicines that contain caffeine can cause you sleepless nights, so be aware of anything you consume that has caffeine in it.

Natural Solutions Supplements
  • Chamomile can be a useful herb in relaxing the body before going to sleep. Drinking a cup of chamomile tea before bedtime can be part of establishing a nighttime routine and a signal to the body that it is time to start preparing for sleep.
     
  • Bifidus is one the friendly forms of bacteria that live in your large intestine. This form of bacteria not only helps you with digestion, but also produces the calming and soothing B-vitamins that can help you relax and wind down at night. It is also present in mother's milk as well as in the birth canal during birth. On a mental-emotional level, bifidus is linked with feelings of self-esteem, as well as feeling supported and nurtured in life. All of these factors combined make bifidus a perfect natural solution for those who have problems sleeping.
     
  • This supplement containing phycocyanin (the unique blue pigment from bluegreen algae), Ecklonia cava (Seanol®, a marine algae), standardized turmeric, bromelain, and bluegreen algae, can help support the body in dealing with inflammation. Inflammation causing chronic pain and health conditions can certainly contribute to stress and interfere with sleep.
     
  • Another bluegreen algae supplement that can help people with sleeping problems, especially if the problems arise from fatigue, is one that gives natural nervous system support with its combination of three revered mushrooms, Lion's Mane, agarikon, and cordyceps, blended with standardized American ginseng (Cereboost®), resveratrol, and bluegreen algae.

So stop counting all those sheep! Instead try developing a bedtime routine, get rid of all the lights, stop watching the clock, watch what you eat and drink before bed and add some foods and supplements that promote sleep. These tips may help sleep problems become a thing of the past for you and help you get the good quality sleep you need to stay healthy.

Aging Gracefully by Erasing Wrinkles

Aging gracefully can be interpreted many different ways and each person probably has his or her own concerns when it comes to getting older. For many people aging gracefully encompasses how they look. This isn't just attributed to vanity, it is also very practical in many cases. A job, relationship or one's own self-esteem can sometimes be connected to maintaining a youthful appearance. Keeping youthful looking skin as part of aging gracefully also means having healthy skin. Since skin is our largest body organ and the first line of defense in the immune system, it is also a matter of health. Here are some things to consider when striving for healthy skin and less wrinkles in aging gracefully.

Tobacco and Alcohol
Smokers develop lines and wrinkles much faster than non-smokers. This is usually due to smoke containing so many damaging ingredients, as well as the constant drying effect of smoke wafting over the skin. Alcohol dehydrates the body, which can contribute to dry skin and wrinkles.

Exercise
Exercise, even gentle exercise, increases circulation throughout the body. This helps your skin by flushing toxins from your skin cells. Improved circulation also helps your skin cells receive more oxygen and nutrients, which experts believe can stave off wrinkles and other signs of aging skin.

Skincare Diet

Studies have shown that eating foods high in the antioxidants vitamin C and E can help protect skin from UV damage and those foods particularly high in vitamin C can help fight dry skin and wrinkles. Studies have also shown that omega 3 fatty acids help hydrate skin and help in reducing wrinkles. Cold water fish such as salmon, cod, and mackerel are a good source of omega 3 and protein which is also important for healthy skin. If your diet is lacking in omega 3's then the solution for you may be supplementing your diet with AFA blue-green algae, one of Earth's perfect foods for healthy skin as it has the exact ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Folic acid minimizes wrinkles in the skin and keeps the skin feeling smooth. The name "folic" comes from the word "foliage," so leafy greens and foods high in chlorophyll are excellent sources of folic acid. Unfortunately, most people are deficient in folic acid, and some experts say folic acid is the most common vitamin deficiency in the world. Having healthy bacteria in your gut will help your body produce folic acid. Pantothenic acid is thought to decrease wrinkles in skin, as well as decrease stress. This vitamin is widely available in meats and vegetables.

Expressions and Positions
Sleep position is a risk factor for aging facial skin. If you sleep in the same position for years--and your face comes in contact with the pillow while in that position--you might end up with a permanent "sag" plus wrinkles wherever your face touches your pillow. Experts now suggest sleeping on your back to avoid this problem. Similarly, certain facial expressions made over time such as squinting, can create a groove under the surface of the skin. This can turn into a wrinkle. Be aware of those facial expressions that wrinkle skin and find ways to avoid them.

Feed Your Skin From the Outside

"Feed" your skin with antioxidant lotion that has a custom blend of all-natural, premium ingredients with food-grade nutrients. Antioxidants support skin health and can lessen the look of wrinkles, sags, and uneven tone. This lotion  has high-powered antioxidants that really nourish the skin, including beta-glucan, blue-green algae, vitamin E, A and C and aloe vera and other key ingredients that nourish your skin while leaving it soft without an oily feel. The beta-glucan protects your skin from sun damage, gives your skin an immune boost, and soothes any overactive histamine reactions. The algae provides each skin cell with tons of nutrients for repair and nourishment. Finally, the vitamin E and aloe vera replenish your skin's moisture content and soothes any inflammation.

So don't give yourself "worry lines" over aging gracefully and keeping youthful looking skin. It doesn't have to be difficult to keep those wrinkles at bay. Just adopt some or all these skincare tips and your skin will show the benefit.

Reduce Stress for a Healthy Lifestyle

To have a healthy lifestyle, stress reduction is a must. 70% of visits to the doctor can be attributed to stress. Stress signals the body to release cortisol which raises your blood sugar and your blood pressure and has been known to increase cravings for sugary and fatty foods. Cortisol also encourages the body to store body fat. Stress interferes with getting good quality sleep. Not getting enough quality sleep can lead to weight gain, lack of energy, poor memory and cognitive function and have a negative impact on your immune system. Stress can also affect digestion, cause heartburn, stomach cramping and diarrhea and research is showing it can affect brain tissue that regulates emotions and self-control. It can also be linked to skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne, and to an increase in risk of stroke.

Natural Solutions for Reducing Stress
  1. Stock up on healthy snacks when cravings hit. You know to maintain a healthy lifestyle it's better to snack on fruits and veggies than on donuts and potato chips.
     
  2. Exercise can help reduce weight gain and relieve stress, so instead of reaching for your favorite comfort food when stressed, go for a walk.
     
  3. Prepare yourself for sleep by establishing a bedtime routine, don't eat a heavy meal right before bed, and turn off all lights including blue light such as the kind from smart phones or PDAs.
     
  4. Massage therapy can help reduce stress, anxiety, pain, muscle tension and insomnia stemming from stress. If you find yourself stressed beyond your limits of coping, try getting a massage.
     
  5. Socializing and laughing are another natural solution for dealing with stress. Laugher has been shown to support immune cell function, be a stress reducer and research has shown that a healthy lifestyle is linked to our relationships and activities with other people.
     
  6. Eat foods that have stress relieving vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, B vitamins, coenzyme Q10 and chlorophyll. Eating foods rich in vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids can help lower stress hormones, but when you are under stress, your body uses them up more quickly. So just at the time you need them the most, you don't have enough of them. Making sure in times of stress to eat foods such as oysters, halibut, spinach and other leafy greens, nuts and seeds and bluegreen algae to help in relieving stress.
     
  7. Supplements that can help with having a healthy lifestyle through stress reduction include:
  • A supplement with Cereboost®, Standardized American Ginseng, which has long been used in improving cognitive function, preventing fatigue and increasing energy. This supplement also has the power of three mushrooms, Lion's Mane, agarikon, and cordyceps, and resveratrol.
     
  • A supplement that combines phycocyanin (the unique blue pigment from bluegreen algae), Ecklonia cava (Seanol®, a marine algae), standardized turmeric, bromelain, and bluegreen algae can help with a healthy lifestyle by supporting the body in dealing with inflammation. Inflammation causing chronic pain and health conditions can certainly contribute to stress.
     
  • Another supplement we find useful combines bluegreen algae, eleuthero, Ginkgo biloba, Lion's Mane, bee pollen, wheatgrass juice, and noni and was created especially for high-performance athletes and those with active lifestyles who depend on concentration and mental clarity. The blue green algae is a good source of whole food nutrition, bee pollen is reported to have a high amino acid content useful for stimulating memory and concentration, wheatgrass juice has been found to provide nutrients that support brain health and clearer thinking, and Gingko biloba has been used for a long time to promote increased memory and mental concentration by increasing circulation and providing increased oxygenation of brain cells. This combination means support to help you function when stress overwhelms you.

You can use these and other natural solutions to help reduce stress for a healthy lifestyle. If you find yourself dealing with stress that can affect your health, making some lifestyle changes, eating foods that help reduce stress and taking supplements that can help with stress reduction are natural solutions that make sense for you.
