Good Healthier Snacks

Healthier SnacksWhen we crave for something we should be craving for a healthier snack. These days there are very many snacks and foods that contain harsh ingredients like Red 40 and Hydrogenated Oils. Staying away from bad ingredients can improve your mood and health overall. If you’d buy an expensive car, would you want to put the cheapest oil in its engine? I don’t think so, you’d rather find the full synthetic oil which is made by a good brand. Don’t you consider your own body and health very important to you personally? Have you ever thought how many people depend on you being healthy and staying alive, your wife, kids, or parents? Think about it and while thinking go ahead and chew on one of the snacks below. You never know, you might live a day or two longer :) Continue reading

Fat, Sick & Nearly DeadAre You Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead? If Yes, Then You Must Watch This Video Called “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross. Read its details below and choose how you would like to watch it…

Documentary’s Synopsis From Amazon’s Page:
FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health while traveling across America, juicer in tow, and inspiring others to do the same.

Documentary’s Editorial Review From Amazon’s Page:
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well- with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle. While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well. What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.

10 Popular Weight Loss Diets for Your Consideration

Weight Loss DietsThe Best Lose Weight Diets are hard to find these days because of so much competition and because of people’s specific needs. I put together this list of 10 Popular Weight Loss Diets that are available this month in 2011. I have seen many people try many different types and kinds of diets. Some people succeed at their dieting plans and some can’t. People either give up or their bodies don’t allow them to keep on dieting. Most people, if not all, try to find the easy weight loss diets. Believe it or not some diets really are easy, at least to some of us.

When I was younger, I didn’t worry about my weight or about what I eat. After I went over the age of 25, my body slowly started giving up on me. At the same time, I had to start paying close attention to what I eat. It’s just insane how hard it is to lose weight. Earlier in my life I just couldn’t understand why people care about their weight and meals, but now I totally understand why. When I look in the mirror and see those extra dimples on my belly and sides it just feels disturbing and embarrassing. I begin to think how did I let my self get so disgusting looking. The dimples I’m talking about is the cellulite :) I’m not “fat” yet, but it seems like I can easily and quickly get there, I’d say I’m chubby or getting chubby. You’ll never see it when I’m dressed and standing straight, but when I sit down and bend forward… yuck :( Continue reading

Carrots Nutrients and Health Benefits

CarrotsHere it is again, another rewritten article. Like I said before in one or more of my previous articles that some of my very old articles were not created and/or put together as organized as the recent ones. My old article about carrots can be found here – Carrots Nutrients and Benefits. So, let’s sit back, relax, and begin our new and updated research on carrots.

Carrots are in the family of Apiaceae and their binomial name is Daucus Carota. Carrot is considered as a Root Vegetable. In Russian carrots are called Markovka, and the actual Russian word looks like this – Марковка. Make sure to pronounce the R or roll your R’s in Markovka the Spanish or Russian way and not the English way. (I’m still having trouble saying the letter R the English way, but I’m working on it).

Carrots come in multiple different colors like; Red, Yellow, Orange, White, Light Purple, and Dark Purple. Depending on the environment, mature carrots can be kept after picking for about three to four weeks, but the young carrots can only survive for about two weeks. If you want to make the carrot’s shelf life longer, make sure to remove their green tops.

Did you know that the tops of the carrots are also edible? I really didn’t know that. Hmm… Interesting. The Orange part of the carrot is called a Taproot. Some people claim that Carrots are very good companion plants, especially in tomato production, because the white carrot’s flowers attract wasps which help protect the tomatoes from different kinds of pests.

People around the world enjoy carrots in very many ways like; chopping, boiling, frying, steaming, or by just eating them raw and fresh. You can use or cook carrots in soups, stews, salads, cakes, puddings, rice, and baby foods. The Nutrients in one cup (or 128 grams) of Raw Chopped Carrots are: Continue reading
