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!

How Americans Lose Weight. Look at the top five...eat more selectively and exercise!

The idea that we have to live on a diet is certainly disproven here. People do not stick with diets. The most reliable way to achieve and maintain a healthy weight is to get rid of processed foods especially sugar, and eat real foods that are nutrient dense and fiber rich. (hint: vegetables and fruits) yes! Exercise makes a difference...but combining exercise with eating more plant foods is the best way to get and stay lighter.
