Powerful Pomegranate

Pomegranates are super.  I bet you don't eat enough pomegranate.  It's not necessarily a fruit you think of grabbing at the store and it can sometimes be difficult to find.  However, POM juice can be found most everywhere and its worth picking some up.

Pomegranate juice is a rich source of phytochemical compounds shown to benefit the heart and blood vessels. It not only lowers cholesterol, but lowers blood pressure and increases the speed at which heart blockages (atherosclerosis) melt away.

Not only are pomegranates good for your heart and blood vessels but they have been shown to inhibit breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, leukemia and to prevent vascular changes that promote tumor growth.

Pomegranates' potent antioxidant compounds have also been shown to reduce platelet aggregation and naturally lower blood pressure, factors that prevent both heart attacks and strokes.3 Pomegranates contain high levels of flavonoids and polyphenols, potent antioxidants offering protection against heart disease and cancer. A glass of pomegranate juice has more antioxidants than red wine, green tea, blueberries, and cranberries

Pomegranate juice has also been found to contain phytochemical compounds that stimulate serotonin and estrogen receptors, improving symptoms of depression and improving bone mass.

The winter blahs are upon us.  Grey skies, cold blowing sucky wind.  Is spring ever coming? 

Eat these foods, they should help lift your spirits and drive away that winter bastardy feeling.

Lentils - low levels of folate and vitamin B have been linked to depression, exhaustion and the blahs. Lentils are rich in folate and vitamin B.  Who would have thought it?

Salmon - loaded with Omega-3s that will boost your mood and feelings of well being.

Kale - high in calcium and will help you feel relaxed and sooth jittery nerves.

Brown Rice - rich in complex carbs, will keep your blood sugar levels nice and give you  lots of energy

Next time we meet, you'd better be in a good mood.  No excuses.

Like fried chicken?  Good golly I sure do.  Growing up, fried chicken was consistently being served somewhere, or at someones house, or at church, or at home.  Trust me, I know fried chicken.

You Gotta Eat:

1033 W. Broadway
502 589 7985

Its tasty...and cheap.

On a recent visit, we got two snacker boxes which includes two pieces of chicken and a side order.  You can upgrade and get breast for 50cents extra.  For the sides we went with mac n cheese and broccoli casserole.  We also picked up the Keel for an extra 2.75.  The Keel is the most tasty part of the chicken.  All white meat and flavorful.  Indi's also has some great hot sauce for 27cents.  On this visit we got 4.
Good meal, better than the other well known chicken in town, and definitely a lot cheaper. 

Don't be turned off by where this place is located.  Its well worth the trip.

Get some..........

Wanna be healthy?  I know you do....if you don't please seek some counsel.  Anyways, below are the top 5 foods you want to eat EVERYDAY to be healthy.  Even nibbling on these in between your TWINKIES will be a start.  Go Get em.

1. Nuts - Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts are great because they are high in fiber.  Fiber keeps you feeling fuller longer and will help you from overeating. 

2. Leafy Greens - all are high in nutrients like folate and Vitamin A/C.  This leafy wonder will lower your risk of cancer, prevent diabetes and lower blood pressure. 

3. Onions - (see prior post titled The Amazing Onion) can reduce asthma symptoms and help prevent stomach cancer.  The stronger the onion, the greater the benefit.

4. Yogurt - can improve digestion, when purchasing look for "active cultures" to maximize.

5. Whole Grains - brown rice, quinoa and whole oats will actually shrink the fat storage cells around your belly.  Who doesn't need this?

*please consult your doctor before changing your diet.

VOILA!!  A new healthy you......
