Who says we have to suffer...to live a healthy happy vibrant life?

Red wine and dark chocolate... might seem decadent...but these guilty pleasures also might help us live longer...and healthier lives. Red wine and dark chocolate definitely improve an evening..but they also contain resveratrol..which lowers blood sugar. Red wine is a great source of catechins..which boost protective HDL cholesterol. Green tea? Protects your brain..helps you live longer..and soothes your spirit.

Food for Thought, the blog, is about living the good life...a life we create with our thoughts and our choices...and having fun the whole while!

I say lets make the thoughts good ones..and let the choices be healthy...exciting...and delicious! Bon Appetit!

A Garden of Eden...for Your Skin.

When I say Apple...do you think computers? Well forget that... be thinking ageless skin. Turns out the apple does more than keep the doctor away. It can turn back the hands of time and leave you looking younger...
Yes eating apples can be extremely beneficial to one’s health. The fruit is rich in fiber and vitamin C. Apples are also packed with antioxidants and flavonoids, which can help prevent disease. But...one of the hottest trends in skin rejuvenation uses apple stem cells culled from a rare Swiss apple known for its longevity. The Uttwiler Spatlauber apple is a nearly extinct variety found only in Switzerland. Apples and even bark from this tree have an amazing ability to heal themselves if they are scraped or punctured. Once picked, the apples last for months longer than other varieties. Because of this, this apple was studied, and the source of the anti-aging and regenerative properties was found in its stem cells. Since then, these endangered apples have been cultivated, and their stem cells have been extracted for cosmetic use. Studies have shown that they help protect and repair human stem cells, which is incredible.
But it’s not just the Swiss apple stem cells that make apple a great skincare solution. No matter from where the apple is plucked, the fruity flesh is filled with nourishing ingredients. Apples contain natural exfoliants that remove dead skin cells, and they also contain components that protect the skin from harmful UV rays, prevent cell and tissue damage, and fight wrinkles and aging. Additionally, the abundance of alpha hydroxy acids, collagen, elastin, and vitamins A, B, and C aid in balancing the pH levels in the skin.
