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.
Red Wine, Green Tea and Dark Chocolate, 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!

Apples and Cinnamon...Delicious and So Healthy!
Sprinkle on some cinnamon... also loaded with antioxidants, because half a teaspoon a day of the fragrant spice lowers blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes, and in healthy people too. Cinnamon brings down levels of total cholesterol, drops triglycerides and reduces LDL cholesterol.
I get organic apples brought right to my door by MileHigh Organics. If you live along the front range of Colorado they'll bring you yummy food each week too!
Just go to this link.
Not one of my Colorado neighbors? Go to your farmers market, sign up for a CSA at Local Harvest.org or visit the supermarket to pick up your favorite apples..and let the health benefits begin!
