Ice cream made with jellyfish protein glows when you lick it

Ice cream made with jellyfish protein glows when you lick it | Health and beauty | Scoop.it
Artisanal ice cream sometimes contains unusual ingredients, like foie gras, blue cheese, or horseradish, but Lick Me I'm Delicious' latest ice cream innovation contains jellyfish protein, not for its flavor, but for its luminescent properties.

7 Tips To Bounce Back After Eating A Bit Too Much

7 Tips To Bounce Back After Eating A Bit Too Much | Health and beauty | Scoop.it

"No matter how healthy we are in our "normal" lives, most of us tend to loosen the reigns a little bit (or a lot) during the holidays. If you have a tendency to get into that all-or-nothing mentality, you might just wake up on January 1st wondering where all your healthy habits went."

 

Personally, I relate to this: I have a super addictive personality, so when I get into something, I have a tendency to go all in. With a little experimentation, though, I've found that it doesn't have to be so extreme. If you put a little intention into your self care, you can continue to show up for life in a vibrant, energetic state—even during the season of endless indulgences!

OK, my hand's up! I am guilty of double dipping dessert on more than one occasion over the last couple of weeks, and I am sure I am not the only one who had a glass or two, or more, of bubbly here and there...so if you found yourself over indulging over the Holiday season too, you may find this scoop insightful. Now all we have to do is bring back a little balance and settle into 2014!

Moscow Subway Ticket Machine Accepts 30 Squats As Payment | Health and beauty | Scoop.it

To promote exercise and the 2014 Olympics, Olympic Changes installed a very special ticket machine at the Moscow subway station.  Instead of accepting money as payment, the high-tech ticket machine only accepted exercise. Riders could receive a free ticket by standing in front of the machine’s camera, and performing 30 squats or lunges.

How A Cup Of Tea Makes You Happier, Healthier, And More Productive

How A Cup Of Tea Makes You Happier, Healthier, And More Productive | Health and beauty | Scoop.it

"We've steeped ourselves in the research and the tea leaves read quite auspiciously: tea makes you more alert more relaxed and less likely to die tomorrow. These are all good things."

 

Humans have been steeping leaves in hot water for 500,000 years. Us Americans drank 79 billion servings of tea last year, amounting to 3.6 billions gallons in total.

 

So clearly, we're quite invested in the hot stuff--as is the freshly tea-pushing Starbucks--but what does it invest in us? New research into the relationship between nutrition and the brain is helping us to understand why tea time is such an essential part of the day--for the components of tea help us be more alert, more relaxed, and healthier over the long term.

5 Health Tech Trends to Watch in 2014

5 Health Tech Trends to Watch in 2014 | Health and beauty | Scoop.it

If 2013 was the year of wearables and health apps, what’s on tap for 2014?

 

Here are five exciting health tech trends to keep an eye on for the new year.

 

1. Data in the Doctor’s OfficeAccording to Pew Research, 21% of Americans already use some form of technology to track their health data, and as the market for wearable devices and health apps grows, so too will the mountain of data about our behaviors and vitals. Next year, we may see more of this data incorporated into our day-to-day medical care.

2. Smart Clothes

If a wristband or clip-on tracker isn’t part of your look, there’s hope for you in 2014, because a new wave of wearable smart garments will be hitting the stores next year. In fact, market research company Markets and Markets expects sales of smart clothes and fabrics to reach $2.03 billion by 2018.

 

3. Augmented NutritionOf course, if you want to fit into the latest smart fashion, you might need to keep better tabs on what you’re eating. We’ve already seen popular apps such as Fooducate make things easy by letting you scan the barcodes on packaged foods to gather nutrition data. In 2014, we’ll see new technologies that take even more of the guesswork out of counting calories. 4. Virtual House Calls

Virtual house calls also just got a big boost with the recent launch of Google Helpouts, a new marketplace for getting personalized help over live video chat. Although it’s still early days for the new service, you can already browse the Google Helpouts Health marketplace for medical advice, mental health issues, nutrition counseling, weight loss and more. You can even get wellness advice for your pets.

 

5. Health Rewards

If looking and feeling good isn’t enough of a payoff, how about getting paid for getting healthy?

Cutting edge way to get complete nutrition in a delicious protein shake.  Dairy & non- dairy. Chocolate or Vanilla!  I was wondering why my friend would tell me " Call me back in 10 minutes, I'm about to eat my dinner " One day I confronted him about eating too fast. Then he told  me his secret!  Not to mention that he is now a perfect weight &  back in olympic shape!   He has been drinking one to two meals a day.

The 5 Biggest Myths About Metabolism

The 5 Biggest Myths About Metabolism | Health and beauty | Scoop.it
From skipping meals to eating at night, it’s time we separate fact from fiction when it comes to metabolism and weight loss.

 

A source of confusion for some and a scapegoat for extra weight around the midsection for others, metabolism has long been a topic of hot conversation. Without it, we would lack the energy to get out of bed in the morning, let alone burn calories all day long. However, even with its numerous benefits, metabolism often gets the brunt of the blame with weight gain. With all of the fad diets and special tricks meant to speed up one’s metabolism (hot sauce anyone?), the facts often get blurred with fiction. To help clear up the confusion, we uncovered the truth behind the top five metabolism myths.
