Most people who adopt a healthy lifestyle know that good digestion is a key factor in the body’s absorption of nutrients. It may seem like a contradiction, but one of the best things we can do to help ensure efficient digestion is by eating fiber, which is dietary material that resists being broken down by enzymes in the intestines.
Losing weight is rarely easy. From mid-morning munchies to unexpected lunch outings with coworkers to aisle after aisle of unhealthy temptations at the supermarket, challenges seem to pop up at every turn, making it difficult for even the most committed dieter to stay 100% on track. Luckily, there are some things you can do to take control and boost your weight loss efforts without a whole lot of change or effort on your part.
It’s all about chia! Little seeds with lots of power, these tiny treasures can be sprinkled on just about anything for an instant fiber, protein and omega-3 boost. You already love pudding, so why not make some that’s not just creamy, cool and sweet—but packed with bonus nutrition? The secret? Besides a heaping spoonful of chia seeds, you’ll sneak in some spinach, a potassium-packed banana and irresistible coconut cream.
Why is it that tummy aches always seem to happen at the worst possible times? Like when you’re out to a nice family dinner at a restaurant, on vacation, or even (ugh!) in the middle of the night? And if you’ve got a really little one—too little to explain what’s wrong—the crying can go on for hours.
Summer is just around the corner. You know what that means: it’s time to rummage through your dresser drawers, pull out that swimsuit and face the mirror. Hiding under sweaters and long-sleeved shirts is no longer an option with all of those pool parties, beach weekends and vacations on the calendar.
Aging gracefully has become something to be proud of, thanks to celebrities such as Jane Fonda and Sophia Loren leading the way. Getting older means recognizing what’s important (friends, family, Fluffy and Fido) and appreciating the simple joys of life (a sunny day, a perfect rose, a sweet strawberry). There’s just one Catch-22 for many of us: Weight gain.
