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!

Colors to Fight Cancer

Fruits and vegetables have more cancer-fighting nutrients then any other foods. And the more colorful, the more nutrients they contain. Plant foods slash cancer risk another way by helping help you reach and maintain a healthy body weight. Those extra pounds increase your risk for multiple cancers, including colon, esophagus, and kidney cancers. Your goal should be five to nine servings a day, prepared in a healthy way.
