Turmeric January 31, 2009

Do you like to use spices when cooking? If you don’t you should. Spices can really boost your health!

Research shows that turmeric can help prevent Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s rates tend to be lower in India where people consume a lot of of turmeric. It also may be lower there because they don’t fill their body with a bunch of processed foods. Curcumin, which is the substance that gives turmeric the yellow color is also known as a natural antioxidant.

 

Cooking tips:

– best known for being used in curries

-can be added to steamed rice for flavor and color

– can also be added to stir fried veggies

 

Enjoy!!

I do a great deal of reading… especially when it comes to health and food. I found this mini article I would like to share with you. I know I have said this before, but I strongly believe what we eat now is surely going to effect us later. So take care of yourself now, get rid of all that junk food and practice eating healthy today!

Organic or Non Organic December 20, 2008

We probably know organic is better for us, but sometimes at the expense of our paycheck it just isn’t worth it. I was reading an article in Runners World this month and came across a piece of info I found interesting and wanted to share:

“By eating the organic versions of the dirty dozen, you can reduce your exposure to contaminants by 90 percent,”

Can you believe that? This is great news … for our health and especially our wallets!

If you don’t know what the “dirty dozen” are check it out: http://www.foodnews.org/

 

Tips to buying organic and saving a buck:

-shop the farmers market in your area

– check weekly what is on sale at the local grocery stores

– if you have a Trader Joe’s in your neighborhood check them out (usually they are fairly inexpensive)
