The Healthy Foods Don’t Have to Be Boring

The Healthy Foods Don't Have to Be Boring

Many people have commented on healthy foods and the lack of flavor and texture they provide. I’m not sure which cookbooks they’re looking in. There are many tricks that can be used to make your favorite foods in a healthier manner.

Here are a few:


These fruits are high in monounsaturated fat, which means they are healthy. The richness can help satisfy the fat cravings you experience in a way that is beneficial to your body. Mixing it with salsa can improve the flavor and texture without adding a lot of salt.

Herbs Vs. Salt:

A little salt in a dish goes a long way towards making it taste better…even if it’s a dessert. Unfortunately, a lot of salt is what we tend to consume. Consider cutting back the salt by adding other herbs and spices. Strong flavors like sage and rosemary can help in this area.

Nonstick Pans:

These miracles of modern technology are helpful in more than just reducing cleanup time. You can saute to your heart’s content, as you don’t need a ton of oil to accomplish the cooking. You may need to add a bit of water to some foods, but without the oil, they are both tasty and healthy.

Olive Oil:

You don’t have to go without all oil when eating a healthy diet. Olive oil, like avocados, contain a healthy fat and is actually beneficial to your body. The better the quality, the healthier it is, so go ahead and splurge on the good stuff. You may be surprised by the flavor.


Invest in a good roasting pan with a rack and you will find many ways to enjoy your food. Roasting it above the pan allows any fat to drip off into the bottom. The rack also allows heat to circulate evenly, cooking both sides at the same time. One recipe my husband and I like a lot is roast chicken. Slip some seasonings under the skin, then roast as you normally would. Yum.

Whole Grain:

This is the Waterloo for many. Whole grain pasta and rice have a tendency to be gummy in flavor and texture. However, they aren’t the only ones at your supermarket. Corn tortillas are made from whole grain. Many pieces of bread using whole wheat flour taste great, though some of them to come out like cardboard. Play around until you find a product that suits your needs and taste buds.

It doesn’t take a lot to have a healthy, interesting and tasty diet. All you have to do is open your eyes to the possibilities and be willing to take some chances while you find foods that fit your lifestyle. It really is worth your time.

The Four Secret Ingredients To Make Your Eyes Look Younger

The Four Secret Ingredients To Make Your Eyes Look Younger

Like many people, I am very careful when selecting my skin-care products, especially for the sensitive under-eye area. We all want to use a wonderful eye serum or cream that would lighten the dark circles, diminish puffiness and visibly reduce the fine lines and wrinkles.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know what eye-care product could instantly adage and wake-up the tired-looking eyes?

I have tried many eye cosmetic products, and after so many years of personal research, I could say that I have discovered the key ingredients, which do make a difference when taking care of my delicate under-eye skin.

I will list them below and I hope you will find them working miracles for your eyes, as well:

I would start by mentioning DMAE, dimethylaminoethanol, known to improve the appearance of sagging eyelids in a short period of time. As we get older, unfortunately, we find ourselves trying to fight the sagging, droopy eyelids that give us a tired-look. I love to tell you that I have successfully used an eye cream with DMAE over my eyelids and I could definitely name it “the magic eye lift”. DMAE is, without any doubt, a natural and safe eye lift for me!

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C- Ester (ascorbyl palmitate) are important antioxidants that also did an amazing job for my under-eye area. They are scientifically proven to fight the action of free radicals and prevent the future damage of these radicals.

Together they help reduce puffiness and reduce dark circles, and I am so excited to tell you that after a few weeks of using these two ingredients, I had no more puffiness or dark circles: my skin around my eyes became luminous and more radiant! However, if you have stubborn dark circles, you might want to try mulberry and lime: a dear friend of mine used them together and her ugly dark circles started lightening up within the first two weeks.

Finally, to keep the under-eye area hydrated, I applied hyaluronic acid daily. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body, is often presented as “the fountain of youth” and many people, who used it in their eye serums and creams, reported that this substance filled up their fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

These are the four secret ingredients that I am always looking for when buying my eye-care products and I have often got many compliments on the youthful appearance of my eyes. These ingredients, together with a good diet rich in fruits and vegetables, regular exercising, and good sleep always do the trick for me. We all know that nothing betrays our age better than sagging and tired-looking eyes!

The Good Dental Care Is Crucial to Your General Health

The Good Dental Care Is Crucial to Your General Health

In truth, many of us do not pay enough attention to the health of our mouths, particularly the teeth and gums. Some give their teeth only a cursory brushing, often skip brushing, use the wrong brushing technique, and put off seeing a dentist even though they’re experiencing discomfort or have damaged or missing teeth. This neglect, however, can have very serious consequences for one’s general health.

How is this possible? Research has shown that bacteria from infections in the teeth and gums can travel to other parts of the body through the bloodstream. A few examples:

If bacteria reach the heart and valves, they can cause an inflammation called bacterial endocarditis, a complication that is even more serious if the person already has heart disease or damage.

Since digestion begins in the mouth by way of saliva, bacteria swallowed with chewed food can cause problems in the digestive system in the stomach or intestines. These include disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.

Women who have periodontal disease are about 7 times more prone to have babies who are premature or underweight than women with healthy gums because bacteria from the mouth can actually travel to the womb through the placenta into the amniotic fluid.

Gum disease increases the possibility of blood clot formation that can lead to strokes or heart attacks.

Bacteria can travel to the site of a joint replacement and cause an infection of the implanted joint that can be difficult for the immune system to overcome.
Within the mouth, poor oral hygiene leads to tooth decay and gum disease. Cavities and decay of the enamel coating weaken the teeth, leading to their eventual loss if fillings and other repairs are not done in time.

Bacteria in the gums leads to gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, which is treatable. If the gingivitis is not caught early enough, it will progress to periodontitis, which is very serious and irreversible. Also called periodontal disease, it is the stage where the gums recede, the jaw bone becomes diseased and damaged, and the teeth can loosen and fall out.

Most of us have had a toothache or other temporary mouth pain that makes it difficult to eat properly. If such pain becomes chronic, it can lead to poor nutrition because one avoids foods that are painful to eat, and the diet becomes limited and unbalanced. In this way, too, one’s general health suffers.

Obviously, it’s much better to avoid such serious health problems, and it’s so simple and easy to do, by simply practicing good dental care. It’s also wise to make regular visits to a good affordable dentist. In my companion article, Good Dental Care Begins at Home – Healthy Teeth for a Healthy Life, you will find practical advice for taking the best care of your mouth, teeth, and gums.

Choosing The Healthy Food Wisely in Restos

Dining out is one treat everyone loves to indulge once in a while. For someone who does all the cooking at home, this is certainly considered leisure. However, if you are on diet, eating out can be tough especially when it comes to choosing food that will not make you feel guilty. Here are some tips that can help you make eating out an enjoyable experience.

One must be aware that most restaurants have nice looking menu pictures that showcase the food they serve. Other than being effective in stimulating one’s appetite, these pictures can speak a thousand words. You should avoid looking at the pictures.

Another thing to avoid when looking over the menu is getting swayed by delectable sounding food names on the list. Again, these names can conjure up images in you that will start off your cravings of food that you have been avoiding.

“World’s Best Chocolate Cake ” sounds so tempting and mouthwatering, isn’t it? You would think that a chocolate cake that has that name would certainly taste heavenly! Unfortunately, it turns out to be just an ordinary cake loaded with calories. For this reason, it would be best to concentrate on the food description and not the name.

There are restaurants that have a different set of menu to cater their patrons who are on diet. This makes it easier for them to give their preferences without feeling guilty. Psychological studies found that it is a bad idea to mix healthy food choices with the unhealthy ones because a person’s natural tendency would be to choose those that they should avoid.

Some food establishment tricks their customers into thinking they are ordering healthy food because of the many various vegetables present in the picture.

In reality, not all vegetables are healthy especially when they are fried or coated.

Lastly, avoid sampling food. You may think a little bit won’t hurt but these can turn nasty if you took several bites instead of one. These┬átips for you is very nice.

Follow these tips and you are surely on your way to an enjoyable time with friends or family.

The Blink Away! Forget Pink Eye at the Urgent Care Clinic

By Marilyn G. Combs / August 20, 2017
The Blink Away! Forget Pink Eye at the Urgent Care Clinic

Did you know?

The average person blinks 22 times per minute. That basically means within a year, we’ll have blinked around 8,000,000 times.

Why so much though?

According to medical research, it’s both a defense mechanism and sustaining motion for the eye. Not only does it provide moisture to keep the eye from drying out, but it also protects from pesky irritants like dust, pollen, bugs, etc. Yet for all blinking does, it cannot protect against infections like conjunctivitis.

More commonly called pink eye, this inflammation of the inner layer of the eyelid mostly comes from viral or bacterial infections. There are of course other causes like allergies, Chlamydia, parasites, fungi, use of contact lenses, certain diseases, and chemical exposure. While these may be potential origins, they are not as common. Thus, for the sake of time (yours and mine), we’ll just go over the primary two.

For the most part, conjunctivitis comes from a virus, generally when you’re suffering from the common cold and/or a sore throat. (You won’t find it every time you’re feeling sick, but don’t be surprised if you see it on occasion). The infection starts in one eye, and can easily travel to the other one.

Much like its infectious counterpart, the bacterial pink eye is highly contagious. The difference between the two though comes from more than names. Bacterial conjunctivitis develops from a pus-producing bacterium that will bring about irritation or grittiness. Depending on the situation, you’ll see a dark, gray, or yellow mucus/pus secreting from your eye. Careful when you blink. The discharge can cause your eyelids to stick to each other, especially after you sleep.

So how do you know for sure if you have it? While the name implies a pink color, more often than not, you’ll see red. Other symptoms may include but are not limited to: swelling, burning, eye pain, blurred vision, excessive tearing, itching, some sensitivity to light, drainage from the eye, and/or feeling like there’s something in your eye. You’ll probably do a bit more blinking as well, given that your eyes will be drier and more sensitive. If you’re really not sure, check with a doctor.

The easiest place to find one immediately is an urgent care clinic. Think about it, pink eye is very contagious. If you’ve got a cold, you can spread it through coughing or sneezing. It can also be spread through touch. Touch your eye, touch a doorknob, hold someone’s hand, touch food and share it with someone. You’re going to get people sick fast.

If you’re in an ER waiting for who knows how long, think about how many things/people you can cough/sneeze on or touch. That or while you’re waiting, you might catch something they have and worsen your condition. Very tempting isn’t it?

Stop by an urgent clinic instead, where doctors will treat you readily upon arrival and with friendly courtesy. You’ll save time being sick and save your family, friends, coworkers, and random strangers from being infected. Yes, you’ll even be able to blink again.

How To Exercise Good Dental Care For Teenagers

This includes brushing two times per day with an ADA approved toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.

The Central Role Of Dieting In Health And Fitness

The Central Role Of Dieting In Health And Fitness

The current obsession with health and fitness is concentrating on physical activity while neglecting the pivotal role played by proper dieting. To assert that there is a health and fitness craze in society today is to make an understatement. There are not enough superlatives to describe what is happening in gyms and nutrition classes.

Homes are now fitness centers, as people strive to avert diseases and live longer. Considering the prevalence of lifestyle complications like obesity and diabetes, one can understand the fascination with healthful lifestyles. However, the public needs to understand the significance of eating a balanced diet, if personal health and fitness goals will be achieved.

To begin with, food provides the body with the energy it needs to carry out its normal activities. Eating carbohydrates and other sugars in the recommended quantities is important for the body’s optimal functioning. All body activities and processes require glucose. A body deprived of this nutrient will be lethargic and ineffective.

Physical exercises take a lot of energy from the body. Jogging, running, lifting weights, sit-ups and other aerobic exercises, cannot be accomplished when the body has no strength. It is, therefore, unnecessary to visit the gym when you have eaten nothing. Unless you feed your body with the recommended portions of carbohydrates, all your health and fitness efforts will come to zilch.

Additionally, food builds your body cells and muscles. Cells are the basic units of the organs and fluids that make your body function. You need to eat a lot of proteins to develop your body to the fitness level you deserve. Legumes, milk, and meat products are some of the richest sources of proteins.

When the body is physically exerted, it undergoes wear and tear. The damaged and exhausted cells need replacement or rejuvenation. Failing to eat well while exercising, is a recipe for further damaging the body’s systems, instead of achieving health and fitness goals.

Lastly, diet is important to any health and fitness efforts because the body needs to be protected from diseases. Vitamins and minerals are crucial in strengthening the immune system, and fighting diseases. Physical exercise is desirable, but a sick body has no place in the gym.

Sickness can also be aggravated by exercise, especially when the body is weak and incapacitated. Health and fitness goals are only achievable when food is given its primary role. Exercise has its benefits, but it can never replace proper dieting.
