Organic Produce and Feeling Great

Increase your intake of organic fruits and vegetables. Pesticides and herbicides contaminate the produce we eat. So it’s best to eat something organic so our livers don’t have to process the toxins.

So what can you do to commit to eating more produce?

  • Try something new in the produce area each and every week.
  • Make smoothies to increase your produce intake.
  • Wash your produce thoroughly whether it is organic or not.
  • Eat more dark green leafy vegetables. The darker the green the better it is for you.
  • And most important, shop at the local farmers’ market. You’re not only supporting your local economy but most likely the produce that you’re buying has a higher nutrient value.

Gluten and Menopausal Symptoms

Gluten and Menopausal Symptoms

Avoid Gluten. The term has actually come out from woodwork over the last few years.

So what is gluten?

It is stabilizer and thickener. It adds texture and chewiness to products. This all sounds well and good until I tell you that everyone on the planet is allergic to gluten in one form or another. In extreme circumstances, this is called celiac disease.

In average individuals it can cause lethargy, bloating and gas. If you or a family member is not allergic to gluten and does not have celiac disease, the best way is to taper off of it gradually.

  • Avoid white and wheat products.
  • Avoid any processed foods.
  • Try brown rice pasta and quinoa as carbohydrates.
  • Go into your gluten free aisle and try some of the flours and of the products that are available.
