Sandi Cornez's curator insight, March 23, 3:01 PM

Are you confused as to what ingredient (food)  may be healthy or unhealthy? It's not surprising since there's so much health advice being given that's it hard to know which is which. Let's make this real simple for you.  1. Real whole food doesn't come in a package. box, or bag with an ingredient list  you can't pronounce and is a mile long. Yes apples, oranges, and other fruits sometimes are bagged, but the only ingredient is (name that fruit).  Same with greens and other veggies that are bagged. Real food means that it came from nature, not processed in a lab.  2. Any food that is  highly processed that has the word "refined" on the label. Refined means that the healthy nutrients have been stripped away and replaced with unhealthy fats, sugars, harmful additives, GMOs, and artificial ingredients created in a lab. Unfortunately even products labeled "organic" can have unhealthy ingredients such as cane sugar, agave, and fad new lab created sweeteners like Truvia. Sorry folks. sugar in any form is not healthy. Part of the problem is the addictive aspect of these ingredients whereby you end up eating more and more and cravings set in. 

 

Health Tips:  Buy more produce than any other real food in your grocery store. As much as possible buy in the bulk aisle organic real food as in nuts, seeds, whole grains, herbs and spices, beans, peas, lentils. Get in the habit of making your own (DIY) nut butters, snack bars, and meals. Yes it does take some time. Isn't your health worth it? If your budget allows. look for certified organic, that's 100% organic with no GMOs. Buy healthy fats such as extra virgin coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil. Stay away from vegetable oils. Remember junk fake food is still the same  unhealthy junk fake food no matter whether it's labeled gluten-free or vegetarian/vegan. If you do consume animal based products, buy grass-fed, organic and do consider reducing your consumption. You'll be helping your body and planet Earth.

Did you know that your liver is mainly responsible for removing toxins from your body and removing excess estrogen? Today there are numerous higher quantities of toxins everywhere; in your food, air, water, environment. So what's a conscious healthy person, like you do to reduce your toxic load?  Real whole plant based food, herbs, and botanical extracts to the rescue.

 

Health tips:  Eat real whole food starting with dark leafy greens, foods rich in beta-carotene like carrots,  artichokes,, Brussels Sprouts, cabbage, broccoli,  and other plant based foods listed in this article. Liver support herbs such as  Milk Thistle aka Slymarin, Wolfberry, Schizandra, burdock (a blood purifier), and dandelion are helpful. Always check with a health care professional knowledgeable in this area of expertise. One way you can help your liver is to limit your consumption of alcohol. Did you know your size matters? Remember what damages your liver the most are mainly the harmful substances you eat, drink, and breathe. You can reduce your exposure by not standing too close to buses, cars (exhaust), drinking filtered water throughout your day, and doing your best to avoid pesticides in food. Choose organic as much as is possible for you.

Are you noshing on nuts? Nuts and seeds are two of the best ingredients you can consume for your health. Nuts are nutrient dense foods rich key minerals and vitamins and one of the best snacks for your brain. All nuts are rich in vitamin E, which reduces inflammation in your arteries and inhibits the oxidation of cholesterol. Nuts like walnuts help your cognition, memory,  and thinking. Some nuts like cashews have compounds that dilate blood vessels so oxygen rich blood can flow to the brain, which is needed for optimum performance. Nuts are rich in heart protecting mono saturated fats. Nuts contain the amino acid arginine, which dilates blood vessels, allowing more blood to reach your heart under lower pressure. 

 

Health Tips:  Eat several small handfuls of nuts daily to protect your heart, your brain,  and your overall health. Nuts have preventative effects  on many diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Did you know that Brazil nuts and sunflower seeds are rich in selenium which improves your body's ability to recognize and fight early cancer cells? And nuts have been proven to help you lose weight.

Do you have an aloe plant and/or use aloe vera for your skin? Dis you know you can also drink aloe juice? Aloe vera is a gray-green succulent perennial plant which is cultivated around the world. It's an immune stimulant, laxative, and anti-inflammatory,  Aloe vera promotes the absorption of nutrients through your digestive tract and normalizes blood sugar. It also helps other types of health conditions. 1. Burns and other wounds. Aloe vera juice speeds healing because it increases the amount of oxygen carried by the blood to the cells. Aloe gel is a mild anesthetic that relieves itching, swelling, and pain. Aloe helps repair damaged cells and prevents burns from scarring. 2. Cancer stops the processes of inflammation necessary for tumors to gain new blood supplies and the growth of tumors. 3. Constipation. 4. Diabetes. 5. Frostbite. Aloe prevents a decrease of blood flow to frozen tissues. 6.Kidney stones. 6. Radiation exposure. Aloe protects against skin damaging X-rays. Aloe is an effective antioxidant that absorbs free radical damage. 7. Skin disorders and wrinkles. Aloe has anti-bacterial and moisturizing effects. Research at the University of Maryland found that a compound in aloe kills viruses that cause herpes and shingles. 8. Surgery recovery. 9. Ulcers. Aloe soothes peptic-ulcer inflammation caused by excess acid, aspirin,   non-steroidalanti-inflammatory drugs  (NSAIDS), and alcohol. 10. HIV-AIDS. Aloe soothes lining of digestive tract, increasing nutrient absorption.

 

Health Tips:  Aloe vera gel from the live plant can be added to smoothies and used on your skin.  Be sure to purchase liquid aloe vera from a reputable  science company that ensures the potency of the molecular weight polysaccharides which are the biologically active compounds responsible for many of Aloe's beneficial effects.  One company this curator recommends is Univera. Their Aloe product contains biologically active ACTIValoe, a standardized 200:1 Aloe concentrate from the aloe leaf inner gel fillet. Most store bought aloe liquid products are basically water.
