Foods in the News – Avocados, Flaxseed, Cherries

Avocados are good! They do have fat, but its a good fat. Want a completely different way to eat avocado?  Here’s my recipe for Avocado Chocolate Mousse! Did you know that an avocado has more potassium than a banana? Plus there’s lots of other health benefits. Check it out by clicking here.

Canola Oil is bad! (Its about time the news broke!)

Flaxseed is good stuff! It has four times more Omega-3s than Omega-6s, so by eating flaxseed you can bring your Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio back in balance to reduce systemic inflammation. I put some flaxssed oil on cottage cheese and it that or I add some flaxseed oil to my smoothies.

Did you know cherries contain natural melatonin? That’s right! Eat some cherries or drink some tart cherry juice and get a good nights sleep! I buy frozen tart cherries from Costco and use them in my smoothies. Read more here!

My father died of colon cancer when I was 13 years old. And I had a brother in his 50s die of liver cancer. So I’m kind of obsessed with cancer and keeping it at bay. Cancer loves sugar! So the Primal diet is perfect because its all about lowering your carb (sugar) intake. Here’s an article entitled “Six ways to diffuse your cancer time bomb”.

 

Misc Food Links

Just starting this page on 4/24/17 and will continue to update as I find new and interesting info!

  • Coconut Oil Health Benefits
  • Red Onions, low carb, fights cancer
  • Wheat, I stay away from grains as much as possible (I do cheat every now and then especially with bread). But when I ate wheat and grains every day, all day long, I was bloated with inflammation and didn’t even know it! I wasn’t celiac, but when I removed wheat from my diet I immediately began to feel better! Here’s a link to the say no to wheat people’s website!
  • Chia Seeds, benefits
  • Turmeric, good for inflammation and more
  • Cilantro, powerful herb benefits. If you like it, eat it. If you don’t, supplement!

Need an Attitude Adjustment? Here’s 8 Ways to build Confidence!

I owe my success being Primal to Mark Sisson and his Primal Blueprint. He also has a blog called marksdailyapple.com and I highly recommend that you sign up for it. You’ll receive daily emails about everything Primal. The one I got today will be a must read for me later as I have to get ready to go to work. It talks about confidence and attitude and things that get you off track causing a weight loss plateau, etc, etc. I have to get re-focused and concentrate what I’m doing as I have hit a weight loss plateau and have actually gained a little weight back! Part of it is being in the restaurant business! Temptations to cheat are everywhere! Especially since I’ve started to put together cooking classes that highlight the difference between a “normal” diet to a “Primal” diet. So I’m making (and tasting) all these non-primal foods! Its ironic, don’t ya think! I’m doing myself in by trying to help others! Anyway, the Primal Pasta class is coming together and I should be back on track soon, so reading this article is timely and is sure to help. Check it out!
