Health is Wealth Indeed

One of the things I wanted to do accomplish before this year ends is to continue in doing my best food choices. It’s not really that interesting though but the fruit will be great. Having the best and healthy food would mean something in times like this. How to choose the best food when you crave for the food that you enjoy the most. Somehow, choosing the right kind of food is the best thing that you choose these days. It’s not that easy, we may have twists and turns because of our choices but choosing the right kind will mean something.

Health is indeed wealth. In this generation, when you don’t give attention to what you eat, you will suffer after few years. All your savings and resources will be wasted. So, I’d rather choose what is best for my health than choosing unhealthy food and suffer later.

Rainy Days

This week the rain was so heavy and we find it hard to go out of the house. The kids were quite sick and the students had a flu. We cannot just go out without the help of our raincoat or umbrella. It will really help you a lot especially these rainy season. It’s best to avoid heavy rain and as much as possible don’t allow yourself to be wet. Try to be safe and be away from sickness. It’s always best to be healthy.

What to Eat?

Certain foods reduce inflammation, while others raise it. What to eat and what to avoid?

Inflammation, normally part of a healthy immune response, is increasingly thought to play a leading role in encouraging a number of major killers, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s. Dangerous chronic inflammation occurs when the immune system stays turned on and starts attacking healthy cells and tissues-triggering, for example, cancer-causing genetic mutations or the bursting of artery plaque. What you eat, though, helps determine how much inflammation you produce. Certain foods promote it, while others are inflammation-fighting superstars, says nutritionist and family physician Ann Kulze, author of Dr. Ann’s 10-Step Diet. Some recommendations:

Try to eat more…

Omega-3 fats. These are among the most potent anti-inflammatory foods. Best sources: fatty fish like salmon and tuna; walnuts and other nuts; flax seed; and canola oil.

Colorful produce. Red onions, tomatoes, broccoli, red grapes, berries, and oranges all are packed with chemicals called flavonoids that have anti-inflammatory properties.

Herbs and spices. Ginger and turmeric, either dried or fresh, are among the most healthful spices. For herbs, sprinkle on some fresh rosemary.

Chocolate and wine. Red wine has anti-inflammatory chemicals like resveratrol. Dark chocolate-look for 70 percent or higher cacao-protects against inflammation, and research suggests that hot cocoa does too.

Eat less on…

Omega-6 fats. They trigger the body to produce pro-inflammatory chemicals. Oils rich in omega-6 fats include corn, safflower, and vegetable oils; mayonnaise; and many salad dressings.

Trans fats. They’re disappearing from packaged foods as more and more research shows they drive inflammation. And now they’re on nutrition labels, so they’re easier to avoid.

Rancid fats. Don’t heat oil to the point that it’s smoking, since that oxidizes fats and turns them into inflammation boosters. Also, avoid old peanut butter and that chocolate bar stashed away for years in your pantry.

White starches. Flour, sugar, white rice, and instant mashed potatoes, for example, all cause quick spikes in blood sugar levels, causing the production of advanced glycation end products that spur inflammation.

Animal fats. Foods high in this fat-egg yolks, red meat, poultry skin, whole-milk dairy products-also contain high amounts of arachidonic acid, a molecule used by the body to create inflammation.

Excess alcohol. Avoid drinking more than one or two alcoholic beverages a day; too much alcohol can cause changes in the intestinal lining, allowing bacteria to pass through into the bloodstream, triggering inflammation.

Hope you enjoy reading this post. I’ve read it from the yahoo news and shared it with you. We need to be careful of the food we eat for our own benefit. Happy weekend everyone and blessings!

Good Japanese Info

An information from a Japanese Scientific Research and I would like to share it today.
Fully ripe banana with dark patches on yellow skin produces a substance called TNF [Tumor Necrosis Factor] which has the ability to combat abnormal cells, the more dark patches it has – the higher will be its immunity enhancement quality hence, the riper the banana the better the anti-cancer quality.

Yellow skin banana with dark spots on it are 8times more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than green skin version of banana.

Eat 1-2 bananas a day will increase immunity. What are you waiting for? Start eating and avail of the benefit.
