Healthy Food Amazing Wellbeing

Sunday, March 1, 2015

One of my New Year goals (yes I do have some more) for 2015 is to improve my health, look after yours truly a bit better and perhaps during the journey inspire all of my loved ones to join in.

Keeping reasonably healthy is so difficult today. For starters there's the time problem, you know we're always too busy to set aside 30 minutes a day to do some exercise, specially after a long day's slog. Then there's the issue of attempting to eat properly. Once again there's the time problem around preparing dinner and then there is the ease of all the fast food you can just get. Alas those fast foods are also a fast way to damage your health and ending up on the extensive list of us who are considered unhealthily fat.

So I realized I had to do something about it so I made up my mind that the easiest point to start with in my search for a healthier me was to go over to Amazon .com. The choice thing about Amazon is that it is so easy to find the most appropriate information you need. I wrote in 'improve my health' and pages of results appeared. I focused my search down to 'great food to eat' and that's how I discovered the eBook 'Great Food Great Health' by Jennifer Daniels.

I have found this book extremely beneficial. What I really like about it is that it is simple to understand, includes food that is readily available to access and each part of a particular food type is set out in exactly the same way. The book includes a large variety of food, 10 sorts of fruit, 10 sorts of vegetables, five types of meats, 10 delicious snacks, and even good for you desserts. In addition to all of this there are also some helpful dieting and exercise ideas which are simple to implement.

For every food type Jennifer gives the following information:
Health Benefits
Serving Portions
Serving Suggestions
Interesting Fact

The way the foods are separated into these different parts makes the book very simple to follow and it makes the thought of eating healthy a whole lot more achievable.

Great Food Great Health is an excellent reference book to help anyone start his or her journey to finding a far more healthier lifestyle. Check out the link below and go over to to get your edition of this great little book. I know you won't be disappointed and let me know your thoughts. In conclusion paraphrasing the last words from Great Food Great Health I wish you all the best in creating and maintaining a healthy you.

We are saturated seemingly on a daily basis about the growing fatty disaster and the need for each and every one of us to take responsibility of our health. There are so many diet fads and so many exercise programs and equipment available, every one of them guaranteeing to deliver a fresh healthier you that it is confusing as to what you should do.

On top of that there are confusing messages; one expert is announcing this food is good but another expert is saying that this exact same food is unhealthy.

Is it any wonder we are so confused that we end being stunned by inertia because it appears that no matter what decision we take it will be bad or it will eventually be shown to be bad.

Jennifer Daniels' book doesn't examine new wonder foods and special health fads, it doesn't promote new exercise equipment which will make sure you lose 100lbs in a week doing 3 minutes of exercise three times a week. This book is about food that is easily available and details the healthy qualities, how food will benefit you, how much of it you should consume, and how to prepare it without having to be a highly trained chef.

You may never look at Brussels sprouts the same after referring to this book:
Health Benefits: Thanks to Brussels sprouts being packed with vitamin B in the form of folic acid they are great for pregnant ladies because folic acid assists in protecting against neural tube problems in infants, just like oranges. Brussels sprouts also have potassium and omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and vitamin C and vitamin K which means they are great for fighting cancer and heart disease.
Meal Portions: One serving size is approximately four to five Brussels sprouts. One serving a day is plenty.
Serving Ideas: As a youngster this was my least favorite veggie even coming in behind silver beat which was pretty blah too. I think it was something to do with the way my folks cooked them. They use to just boil them whole and then we would have to chew our way through them, and they were not good.

But this simple recipe makes Brussels sprouts a whole lot more appealing and it only takes about twenty minutes. The first step is to slice the Brussels sprouts in two and spread them out on an oven dish. Next coat them with a tablespoon of olive oil and then place them in the oven which should be preheated to 500 F. Roast them until they are golden brown, flipping them once. Simply delicious!

Interesting Fact: Although a vegetable, Brussels sprouts are surprisingly rich in protein which is a quarter of the vegetable’s calories. So they are a healthy substitute for meat if combined with grains to give the whole spectrum of amino acids that meat has, with the additional benefit that they will not fatten you out like meat can.

Jennifer also gives simple to understand ideas for helping you to utilize great eating habits to meet your health targets and exercising ideas that won't break the bank or take up too much of your day. The more difficult dieting and exercising is the less chance it has of succeeding so Jennifer Daniels provides a pathway of minimal resistance leading to a healthier you.
