    Today’s Topic: Food & Recipes/Myths & Facts

    Are these Myths & Facts general ideas?


    Should they apply to everyone or according to individual needs?

    Pers. Experience:


    Eggs: Yolk bad for cholesterol, too much fat…..


    Now science says that eggs are healthy for us and I no longer throw the yolk out. It actually contains a healthy fat, nutrients, …


    Conclusion:


    Always verify first before blindly believing. Hearing is one thing, believing another.


    When in doubt, ask your doctor, dietician, coach, counselor…. Or better yet, do your own research to verify.

    Health Tips and Controversial Tips


    Last week: Avocado Seed, a Super Food.  Use: wash seed, dry for a few days, pulverize, put in smoothy, yogurt, home made bread. Remember the 13 Health Benefits!


    I use Flax Seed Meal instad of eggs to bake my home made bread. 3 scoops = 1 egg.


    7 foods you should NEVER refrigerate:


    1. Bananas - cold temps disrupts ripening process. 


    2. Tomatoes - they lose their flavor and become mushy in cold temps. 


    3. Coffee - cold temps destroy the natural oils within the coffee bean, the aromatic scent cannot be activated. 


    4. Sweet Potatoes - in cold temps starches turn into sugars, texture and flavor are destroyed


    5. Avocados - cold temps disrupt the ripening process.


    6. Apples - cold temps make Apples lose their texture and flavor. 


    7. Onions - get soggy in cold temps, smell up refrigerator and other foods


    Conclusion: Buy only as much food as you can eat before it goes bad. Best way to have it fresh at all times is to grow your own garden. Vertical, horizontal, in ground, hydroponic...

    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Spiritual Balance

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Author, Full-Circle Health Coach and passionate about healthy and balanced living.


    Last week: Emotional Balance, today 2/4 Spiritual Balance; next week 2/11 Physical Balance; 2/18 Mental Balance.


    My favorite word is: Moderation in what ever we do. What I mean with Spritual Balance is to have something to look up to, for example Nature, Sounds, Yoga, God, Buddah, something where you can pull strength from.


    Why is this so important? As a baby we had our parent(s) nurture us. As children, we made friends and enjoyed spending time with them, sharing, playing. As teens it started getting a bit more competitive, and as adults, we get lost at times, because the support we had has shifted in us, as we want to be self-sufficient, knowing the answers, being respected,


    That's why we need a supreme being or something that grounds us, so we are balanced. Remember the muscle testing we did last week? Use it!


    From my experience, my spritual life means being, doing, giving the best I can each and every day and get the strength and wisdom from above to know what it is. Ask yourself, what is it for you? Do you get guidance from somewhere you feel you want to tune in, listen, then head the thought, feeling, guidance you get? Do you feel a shift in your body, your mind, your soul? That's what a Spiritual Balance is for me. Then I test it and when it's solid, I follow the action to that thought.

    Why is Emotional Balance in our life so important?


    I am not a Psychiatrist or a Psychologist, though have studied Psychology to become a nurse and then a teacher.

    When we are not? Tense? Irritable? Angry? Frustrated?


    What are the side affects of either?


    How can we avoid the negative side affects?


    How can we make sure we are balanced? Titer Toter, muscle testing


    Meditation, Music, reading, listening to positive talk, walk, exercise, rest, healthy nutrition, ample hydration
