Know that each of our bodies are different, so

It’s very trendy today to pick up a juice at a juice bar or get a wheat grass shot and feel like you’re being healthy, right?
Don’t get me wrong, I love freshly squeezed juice and tonic shots and loading my smoothies with all sorts of super foods, and they’re really good for you too. But, none of that should “replace” real food; FRUITS and VEGGIES!

How often do you look at the ingredient list on the back of a food package?
Don’t be fooled by the label! The food industry wants us to buy; and they know we’ll buy if it looks healthy, so they’ll often put somewhat misleading labels on the package, such as “whole grain” “high fiber” “low fat”. Some of what’s on the label might be true, but…they can’t fool an informed buyer who knows how to read an ingredient list. So the next time you shop, don’t only look at the label…read the ingredients to see if it’s really healthy for you.

One of the most important things you can do for your health is to hydrate! Most people suffer from chronic dehydration. The amount of water your body needs is half your weight in ounces to function at optimal level. So if you weigh 140 lbs, you should be drinking 70 ounces of water daily. If you work out, then add another 10 ounces.
Note: Juice and tea does not count as your daily water requirement. Also, you don’t want to drink with meals as it interferes with digestion. If drinking is necessary with a meal; then add lemon to the water. The morning is the best time to drink as much as possible, as your body is naturally dehydrated after sleep.
Drinking the right amount of water ensures that your cells don’t sit in a stagnant pool and that there’s proper fluid exchange. Food can’t digest well in a dehydrated colon and absorption of nutrients can’t happen without proper water. So if you’re ready to make one change this month, start by drinking MORE pure and clean WATER!
Tip for the week: Drink more water!
Years ago, it was simply part of the household routine that dinner was eaten together, as a family, every night. Over dinner, you can hear the sounds of laughter, fighting, conversing, and most importantly, attention was lavished on the children.
As times and schedules have changed, so have dinner routines. If they are even routine. If parents are eating with the children, it is usually with one parent on the cell phone and children are rushed in order to get to the next activity.

The holidays are here and I bet you’ll be having some drinks;) Am I right?

Here are a few guidelines to keep alcohol consumption healthier for you.

How many servings of fruits and veggies do you consume daily? Fruits and veggies, especially leafy greens, are the most important foods to eat for longevity, better skin, energy, and to help everything in the body work properly.
Think of the gas you put in your car. If you put low quality gas in an expensive car, it won’t work well. If you put low quality food in your beautiful body, it won’t work well either.
