Avocados unlike dairy have no cholesterol, saturated fat, milk sugar,lactose, or excess hormones. Best of all avocados and other plant based food don't harm animals.

 

Avocados not only help your heart, but they are kind to your skin, hair, and scalp. Read the article to discover other nifty uses for avocados.

 

Health Tips:  Avocados create that whipped fluffy texture found in so many recipes. Avocados add oodles of creaminess to your smoothies so you don't have to use yogurt or even bananas which add too much sweetness.

Just 1% more water per day makes a difference.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, May 15, 1:50 PM

Did you know that drinking just 1% more water daily can make a difference for your health?  A new study published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics links reduced daily caloric intake and reduced consumption of saturated fat, sugar, sodium, and cholesterol?

 

People who feel hungry, sleepy mid day often are water starved, rather than hungry. Feeling thirsty is not an indication for need of water. Your body and brain are mostly water and require daily consumption.

 

Health Tips:  Drink water from a water filtration system in your home or business rather than tap water which contains chlorine and other pollutant toxic chemicals and residues from pharmaceutical drugs.. Do not drink from water bottles as they are mostly filled with tap water and end up in our oceans killing marine life.

 

This subscriber recommends Multipure water filtration, creator of carbon block technology and recommended by Environmental Working Group (EWG) and Consumer's Reports. Multipure's newest system, the Aqualuxe, takes contaminant reduction to a new level. And Multipure is tested and certified by NSF.

"We think of obesity as a state of excess, but biologically it’s a state of deprivation, or the state of starvation. The brain sees too few calories in the bloodstream to run metabolism, so it makes us hungry. It activates hunger and craving sensors in the brain, and slows down metabolism.”
