Healthy DIET, Healthy MIND

Every time I write an article related to health, I always make sure that I point that I am neither a nutritionist, nor an expert. I just try to learn as I go along.

My heart always goes out to low-income households. Indeed, when you are poor: “Food is food”. You don’t have the choice to pick and choose what you eat because you cannot afford it.

With that said, I am not a vegetarian, but as I got older, I try to reduce my weekly intake of red meat.

I have to say that I noticed the results of that in the level of energy I have.

Plus, I might love me so African food when I go back home, but I am back, that’s a big “No No” for me. No offense, but we all know some of them can be quite heavy. :) :) :)

When it’s still sunny outside, I actually like to make myself some nice salad at home.

- Cucumbers contain more than 90% of water

- Avocadoes are a great source of vitamin K (essential for bone health), fibers, magnesium and potassium (which help to control blood pressure). Plus ladies, have you also noticed that a lot of good beauty products contain avocadoes (shampoo, conditioner, hair and face masks). They make your skin and your hair smooth after use.

- Research has shown that adding tomatoes to your diet helps to reduce the risk of cancer, keep blood pressure and glucose low. In addition, tomatoes contain lutein and beta-carotene which are good for your eyes.

Why not pair a good salad with an apple for dessert …The health benefits of eating apples range from reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes to hypertension and cancer.

Make sure you wash your fruit and vegetables before you eat them.

PS: TOMATOES AND AVOCADOES are not vegetable. There are fruit.
