It’s Halloween!!!!

The nutritional value of pumpkins

Time for pumpkins, lanterns, candy, candy, spiders and spider webs, haunted houses and candy, candy and ghosts, haunted houses and goblins. Scarecrows and more candy!!!! Whewwwwww.

Some things amaze me about Halloween.

  • People go out of their way to create something which is intended to scare people.
  • People. Ironically, are more amused than scared.
  • Goblins, ghosts and witches all of a sudden come out in the daytime.
  • People buy candy to give as gifts to kids who can’t eat it, because they can’t trust people who give them candy.
  • So the only one who benefits are the people selling the candy.

And this activity is so powerful, that adults hesitate to say no to children, even when they don’t believe in it themselves.

The tradition now is for churches and parents who want to dissuade children from taking part in Halloween related events, and “trick or treating” to provide a substitute activity. I never got the wisdom in that. It goes in the same category of electronic cigarettes. “The real thing is bad, but we can still do it in a different way.” We know we are still inhaling chemicals, but at least there is no smoke to offend anyone.  “And then we tell children to “Just say no” Is there something wrong with saying “no” without a “BUT”.

ACHIEVING A NEW NORMAL IN YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS

I thought this personal experience will illustrate what I mean by “A New Normal”

AN OLD MINDSET CREATED

You can create a new normal

When I was in high school, there came a time when I was lost in Mathematics. I think I lost my way somewhere in the fractions arena. After that everything else was a blur. I couldn’t understand much. I was frustrated. I felt inadequate, and often wondered what do some people have that I don’t have? I eventually gave up on myself and Mathematics, and concluded that Mathematics was not for me. So I concentrated on my other subjects, and gained enough GCE passes to become a teacher. So I entered teacher’s college and met a mathematics tutor who knew that:

  • Too many people lost their way in Mathematics.
  • Most people could learn mathematics, with the right teaching.
  • Mathematics was indeed fascinating, and she had the right mindset to show that to us.
  • Teachers had to understand and at least like Mathematics in order to teach it successfully.

YOUR “HEART HEALTH”

0

 

WOW!!!!

Have you ever had one of those light bulb moments when something suddenly occurs to you, that was hiding in plain sight?  I know you have. Everyone does.

Your HEART is depending on you!!

Your HEART is depending on you!!

How about this!!!. You can be the cure for what ails you.

Earlier this morning, I suddenly realized that my heart is just like the motor that runs the computer or a vehicle.

I did a quick run through on my laptop, which is my daily routine. This is how my routine goes.

I have learned how to ignore those whistles on my phone, until I am ready to wake up. You have no idea how that phone whistles, but I usually only hear it when I am not sound asleep.  Texts, Facebook  notifications, emails, everything elicits some kind of audible signal.

If you are wondering “Why don’t I just turn off the phone?”   The answer is; Because I believe that I should always be available if my kids need me.  So while I keep my phone handy, I learned to tune out those sounds when I want to sleep. (A ring would definitely get my attention.)

By the way!!!!!! What does your body need to do, to get your attention? Are you ignoring the cries for help?

ARE YOU MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICES FOR YOUR “HEART HEALTH”?  Listen to this video.

GREEN TEA has been consumed for many centuries. Its use has been associated with several health benefits in China and other countries.

GREEN TEA has special antioxidants called CATECHINS

GREEN TEA has special antioxidants called CATECHINS

GREEN TEA has special anti-oxidants called catechins, which prevent free radicals from damaging your DNA. This is the kind of cell damage that can lead to cancer and blood clots.

According to the “Harvard Women’s Health Watch” publication, catechins are more powerful than Vitamin C and Vitamin E at halting oxidative damage to cells. One special catechin in particularly is epigallocatechin gallate more simply referred to as (EGCG).

 EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: which is twice as powerful as resveratrol (remember red wine?)

 Green, and black teas has also shown that they can reduce the risk of heart disease and regulate cholesterol levels.

A STAPLE IN OUR “FOOD”

wheat may not be all that you think it is.

wheat may not be all that you think it is.

 

 

We love bread. We eat so much of it at our favorite restaurants, that we have to take our meal home to eat later. For many of us, between pizza, pasta, bread, crackers, cereals, sandwiches, wraps cakes and pancakes, and almost anything that is processed our food patterns are pretty much covered.  There is also a high possibility that you may be “sleeping with the enemy” Is it possible that wheat and other grains are negatively and silently, affecting your HEALTH AND WELLNESS?

SOURCES OF DIETARY FIBER

SOURCES OF DIETARY FIBER

DIETARY FIBER plays many crucial roles in your diet. Fiber is essentially all the parts of the food that the body cannot digest. It serves other useful purposes.

It is no accident that the foods that are most beneficial you contain lots of fiber. Many vegetables and fruits are high in fiber. So are legumes and whole grains. This does not include refined grains like bleached white flour and white rice. Use grains in their most natural state.
