Welcome to November.
If you like nuts & seeds but they aren’t part of your daily diet yet, this is for you.
Studies show that snacking can represent up to 30% of our daily food intake. It is therefore really important to plan our daily snacks in advance.
Planning a tweak in your food intake can start now or you can start thinking about your new year’s resolutions. Hello 2021!
This is not about dieting. If you’re over 30 years old, you know by now that dieting is like chasing the wind: every year, we start it and fall off just to start again.
I am talk about your Health Wealth. You may not have cottoned on to it yet, but guess what? All your WEALTH, no matter which form it takes is rooted in your HEALTH and you have a part to play in it.
Am sure you knew this, but are you working on it? Will your current diet defend you tomorrow?
One thing COVID-19 has made us more aware of is that a preventative and balanced diet will protect you from a lot. You’ll therefore not be among the firsts victims of random diseases or pandemics.
Protecting your inner body parts will not only keep you healthy, but help you keep a job, play your role in the society and in your circles. So, why not start now? The result isn’t immediate; drip feeding your organism with goodness takes time to build up. Make it a lifestyle habit starting now.
Since my speciality is nuts and more plants-based, below are few recommendations for your brain health, muscles and blood health. Each of them will include the link to one of the snacks on the website. Hope you find them helpful. From there you can look at eyes, gut, nerves, hair and bone health
Drip feed your brain:
Love coffee? Do you know caffeine & antioxidants can protect against Alzheimer?
Broccoli protects the brain against brain damage. Turmeric helps grow new brain cells.
Pumpkin seeds help the brain to function. Walnut is the brain nut par excellence’ with all its nutrients and Omega3. You can also help your brain with Oranges, blueberries and green tea.
Drip feed your muscles:
*Protect the muscles: If you exercise, almonds are great nuts to add to your diet as they can be performance enhancers due to their content in magnesium (help muscle movements & boost sporting performance) vitamin E (protects from damages) & B (prevent infections). Eat almonds!
*Help muscles recovery: Cashews, are proven to help reduce cramps and muscle spasms. If you exercise, they are great post workout snack to help muscle recovery.
*Heal muscles: Eat spinach, carrot and sweet potatoes to heal your damaged muscles with their content in Vitamin A. Eat soy products to heal your muscles with their content in vitamin D.
*Regenerate your muscles: Vitamin B12, help your muscles regenerate quickly and promote the fast healing of damaged muscles. B12 are found in animal and do not really have a vegetable source sadly. Vegan can find the supplement in pharmacy.
To start building you muscles health capital, why not start today with the Nang Cin-Almond, or Nang Charco-Al? The Nang Cashew- Beet and Nang Safprika are fantastic snacks to start with (Click to buy).
Help your blood:
*Increase your blood flow & circulation by using cinnamon in your food. Onion, garlic, lemon and turmeric ARE great helpers of blood flow. Oh and drink a lot of water. Did you know? Not drinking enough water thickens your blood and slows its circulation.
*Increase red blood cells count: Not having enough red blood cells, causes anaemia, chronic fatigue and other complications.
For normal people, increasing the red blood cells is as simple as adding Iron in your food. Eat more beans, raisins, green vegetables.
Top up on folic acids AKA vitamin B9 whenever you can. You find the folic acid in beans, lentils, peas and nuts (pumpkin seeds, cashews, sunflower seeds…)
Eat to prevent/reduce inflammations:
Inflammations are part of the body healing system. They happen when the immune system goes into action without visible infection or injury. Arthritis, nerve pains, irritable bowels. Inflammations can go from regular increased pains up to chronic and Neuropathic pains.
To build your capital and also help reduce inflammations, start by cutting down on red meats, trans fats like margarine and deep fried foods as they increase free radicals in he body. Free Radicals trigger inflammations.
To reduce inflammations, add Ginger in your diet, it has an effect on gastro pains and arthritis pains.
Turmeric has an effect on most inflammations, so add it often in your savoury meals.
To reduce inflammations, eat walnuts, pistachios, almonds, peanuts, leafy greens, blueberries and oranges.
These are just few ideas to help you start on your journey and tips for researching what you may need to build preventative capital for your body’s functions.
