Have you ever thought about the tiny number of things over which we have actual control?
How often do healthy foods actually taste good? The answer for me sits somewhere between “not often” and “never.” And then, there is cocoa. Not only is it delicious, cocoa is also packed with anti-aging goodness. No wonder that it has been named ‘the drink of the gods.’
It does seem like every so often a new type of diet is created, books are written, new recipes online and a new way to boost sales of different foods emerge.
With summer here, are you looking for ways to eat well without heating up the kitchen? Salads are great, but if you’re pretty active you need something more substantial than lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers to keep your energy up.
The long, warm days of summer have arrived. There’s no better way to spend them than sipping your favorite beverage with friends, outdoors. As for me, I always love a refreshing seasonal cocktail.
There are many specific diets you can select from depending on your health issues, choice or desired weight.
Do you ever stroll through a garden or a forest in springtime, with the sun shining down upon you, and you almost “see” the greens spring up before your eyes?
Here is a story you probably don’t know:
Two Zen students were telling each other about their teachers.
“My teacher is a great master who does amazing things. With three strokes of his sword, he can cut an apple off a tree and slice it into quarters before it hits the ground. He can shoot an arrow into the center of a target, then split that arrow with a second one.”
Do you ever wake up feeling like you haven’t slept all night or with joints that hurt as you struggle out of bed? Me too.
These discomforts may be caused by ‘inflammaging’, chronic low-grade inflammation common in older adults, even in the absence of infection. Other possible symptoms of inflammaging are fatigue, a low fever, abdominal and/or chest pain.
