FOODS TO AVOID If you Want More Energy

18/01/2022

It may seem a little strange that food can actually deplete our energy, in a way. Calories equal energy, right? Yes—that much is technically true. But certain nutrients or processed foods can actually require way more energy for our bodies to break down than they are giving us, causing us to feel either an immediate heavy slump (like a cheeseburger on your lunch break) or leaving us starving and not our most functional a mere hour later.

The correct answer is…wait for it…KEEN-wah. But no matter how you’ve been pronouncing the word, I hope you’ve been eating the gluten-free ancient grain, because it comes with a ton of health benefits. 1. Quinoa is packed with protein.

14/01/2022

A good night’s sleep can change everything.

When it comes to our body parts, the three areas that I feel are most affected by gravity as we age…

06/01/2022

Our memory is something that is difficult to keep track of as we age. Or maybe there are some signs … but we forgot. Which sounds like a joke, until we realize, it’s not. And once it starts to slip, it’s not easy to get it back on track, or prevent it from getting worse, such as developing neurodegenerative diseases.
