Did you know that different kinds of fruit have differing amounts of sugar, the sweet poison? There are certain medical doctors who say that the fructose in fruit, especially from the berry family doesn’t cause or lead to the debilitating health issues that other forms of sugar do. This is because of the fiber content in fruit.

 

Yet there is a growing body of wellness doctors and certain hospitals that advocate for minimizing the consumption of fruit and recommend eating the seeds of fruit instead and also eating low sugar fruits which most people refer to as veggies.

 

If you are relatively healthy then a little whole raw fruit is considered fine to eat. However if you have a chronic disease then eating fruit is not recommended by these professionals.

 

Health Tips:

 

You decide for yourself for your body. Consuming one small bowl of berries or one other fruit of your choice a few times a week or everyday might be fine, especially if you are refraining from eating any processed, junk sugary foods.

 

Even though pomegranate is listed in the last group of fruits having highest sugar content, it usually is okay to eat because you’re sucking on the seeds, not eating any pulp. Many times pomegranates are sweet, but other times they are tart like cranberries. The tart ones are very good for you.

 

Consuming low sugar fruits like lemons, limes, avocados, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, cranberries (without added sugar), and rhubarb (without added sugar) is fine anytime.

Eating salad every day may keep your brain years younger | Daily

Eating salad every day may keep your brain years younger | Daily | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
Eating at least one serving of salad or leafy greens every day may delay brain aging in older people, helping them to retain better memories and cognition, according to a new Rush University study.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, March 2, 3:46 PM

Did you know that according to new research eating greens and other veggies in a salad has been shown to boost your memory?

 

This information is from a Rush University Medical Center in Chicago study which said that the salad eaters brains functioned as though they were 10-11 years younger than those of people who didn’t eat greens.

 

Plant based real whole food is anti-inflammatory and rich in nutrition. Your body thrives on fiber which plant based real whole food has in abundance.

 

If one salad a day helps your brain with memory just think what a nutrition filled salad with no fish or animal based product can do for your health.

 

Health Tips:

 

To get the best nutrition, flavor, texture, and taste eat two large salads every day. Sprouts are best so add different varieties. You can pour boiling filtered water over your sprouts to soften them or eat raw.

 

Sunflower seed and pea sprouts are good varieties. Red lentil sprouts and broccoli sprouts are other delicious varieties.

 

Add different dark leafy greens to the mix, some raw or lightly steamed rainbow colored veggies, and top with nuts/seeds, herbs and spices. No oil is required. If you want oil use a drizzle of pumpkin seed, or flaxseed, or hempseed oil.

 

You can have a small serving of whole ancient grain if you desire with your salad. These can be sprouted for better digestibility and nutrients.

 

Eat your ripe fruit in a separate meal. It’s a good idea not to consume fruit with whole grains as the whole grains revert to sugar.

What Is Spirulina? ("looking for a better alternative to coffee or tea? here is the superfood of the future!")

What Is Spirulina? ("looking for a better alternative to coffee or tea? here is the superfood of the future!") | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that nutritionists are calling the superfood of the future. Before you buy your own spirulina powder, let us explain.

You probably never thought you would be adding algae powder from tropical lakes to your smoothies, but spirulina is becoming quite the popular addition for many health-focused eaters. Even though this superfood is in the spotlight right now because of its nutrients, bright green color, and bounty of healthy benefits, spirulina has been a superfood long before 21st-century nutritionists began adding it to their smoothie bowls.

pirulina is quite possibly one of the oldest life forms on Earth. The first people to ever use this algae as a food source is unclear, but Aztecs and African natives may have consumed the algae in their daily diet many centuries ago.

Dried spirulina contains about 60 to 70 percent protein. It’s actually considered one of the few plant-based sources of “complete protein,” meaning it contains all essential amino acids your body needs but can't produce on its own. It’s also a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium, and vitamins A, E, and K. Spirulina may be more beneficial for vegans or vegetarians that lack adequate iron in their diet. Touted as a “superfood," health claims surrounding the blue-green algae include its ability to boost immunity, fight allergies, and reduce fatigue.

With its high nutrient density, the benefits of spirulina reach far and wide. We love it in our smoothies in the morning because research suggestions the powder may boost energy, reduce fatigue, and naturally suppress appetite. Great benefits, right? That's why we say it's time to say goodbye to coffee and hello to spirulina smoothies.

Did you know that plant based omega 3 fatty acids are needed for your body to maintain a healthy balanced weight? One of the best omega 3s is purslane, a wild edible.

 

Exercise and getting 7-9 hours sleep every night is essential as well.

 

Health tips:

Consume sprouts and wild plants (sometimes referred to as weeds). Think dandelion, purslane, mustard greens, and others. Even wild berries are preferable as fresh fruits in season.

Study: Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet Beats Low-Fat Diet for Heart Health

Study: Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet Beats Low-Fat Diet for Heart Health | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
In a recent study, researchers compared a Mediterranean low-carb diet with a low-fat diet in moderately obese individuals to find that the low-carb diet was better for heart health. Over the course of 18 months, 80 participants were randomly assigned one of the two diets–a Mediterranean style low-carbohydrate diet plus 28 grams of walnuts per day and a calorically equal low-fat diet. The mean age of the participants was 48 and their mean BMI was 31 percent. Both groups had some moderate weight loss but the low-carb group lost more waist circumference, which is important for lowering risks associated with heart disease. The low-carb group also improved their cholesterol levels and had a reduction in pericardial adipose tissue, which is fat that can gather on the heart, increasing heart disease risks. The researchers concluded in their study abstract that “The Mediterranean diet, rich in unsaturated fats and restricted carbohydrates, is
