chiaHey there! its been a few days since my last post, but I’m back with a new super food for all my blog readers. Do you remember Chia pet? You know, sprinkle some water on a sheep statue and watch it grow overnight into a little green furry plant. Well I found out that those little seeds are more magical then just quick plant growth.

Chia has been in use for at least 3,000 years. Located in central America it was a favorite of the Aztec warriors, who would consume the seeds right before battle or a long run for its endurance capabilities. Chia is the richest and only unprocessed whole food source of Omega 3. I also found out that it is a complete protein with a soluble fiber that forms a gel that slows sugar absorption in your blood stream. Chia aids in digesting by removing toxin and eliminating waste.

marines_do_pushupsThere are many types of exercise that we can do how ever when ever and where ever. These include:

* Running – This is one of the best cardio exercises there is. All you need to get started is a good pair of shoes, some weather-appropriate running gear, and a place to run.
* Push-ups – Push-ups are excellent for strength training. They work the arms, shoulders and chest, and they also build upper core strength.
* Crunches – Crunches are like sit-ups, but they are not as hard on the back. They are wonderful for toning the abdominal muscles.
* Lunges – If you want to improve muscle tone in the legs, lunges are perfect. They can also provide cardiac benefits if you do enough repetitions.
* Walking – Considered one of the best forms of exercise that just about anyone can do. Walking works the entire body and the participant can go at their own pace. In fact, walking doesn’t have to seem like “exercise” at all to be beneficial – simply incorporating more walking into your daily life will make a difference.

6a00d8341c52f053ef010535ae482e970b-320wiEating the right foods is essential to your health. Too much fat and sugar in the diet can cause a laundry list of health problems, not to mention that it makes it difficult to maintain a healthy weight. We also need to get in all of the nutrients that are essential to your health. And you must watch out for meats that contain antibiotics and hormones and produce that contains pesticides or has been genetically modified.

Unfortunately, eating healthy is far from easy. Sometimes you may not have the time to make or seek out healthy meals and end up eating convenience foods or something from the closest burger joint. And for those of us who make it a priority to eat balanced meals, cost is often prohibitive. Organic meats and produce aren’t cheap, and health food restaurants can be pricey, too.

As impossible as it may sound, you can eat healthy without putting a big dent in the budget. Here are some tips:

Fresh Raw Spinach

Fresh Raw Spinach

Popeye had good reason to be downing cans of spinach, but it wasn’t until I became obsess with nutrition that I discover the life changing benefits.  Spinach belongs to the same family as beets and chard.  There are three main types of spinach including smooth leaf, savoy, and semi-savoy.  All are delicious and rich in nutrients.

Spinach is an excellent source of fiber and vitamin K.  It is a rich source of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and manganese.  It is also rich in folate, a water-souluble B vitamin which is important for good cognitive function.  Spinach is especially high in vitamin A and related compounds such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and lutein, carotenoids that act as protection for the eye.  Spinach is one of the richest sources of lutein, containing nearly 30,000 micrograms per cup of frozen spinach.  Spinach is also rich in glycolipids, powerful phytochemicals known to have cancer cell growth suppression and antiproliferation qualities.
