Healthy food shopping simplified!

''If you don't buy food that is bad for you, you won't eat food that is bad for you''                        Wise words by Dr. Oz

His recipe for perfecting grocery store trips: Have a pre-shop snack ex. a handfull of nuts and dried fruit, a piece of fresh fruit and cheese 

Shop the perimeter: 

-Pile on the fruits and veggies; 7 servings of colorful veggies and 2 pieces of fresh fruit / day, organic when available 

-Hook fatty fish; look for fish high in omega 3 fatty acids and low in contaminants like mercury, such as wild salmon and ocean trout. Consume at least one 4-oz serving a week for maximum benefits. Or take a high quality Omega 3 supplement (Usana's Biomega fish oil capsules or Optomega seed and olive oil) - discuss with your coach

Center aisles:

-Visit the veggie freezer; better than no veggies at all, they can be cheaper than fresh veggies and still have some nutrients.

-Befriend the grain and bean aisle; look for high-fiber, nutrient rich beans and grains. They help to keep your digestive tract healthy and help you feel full longer.

Thanks Dr Oz

March – Nutrition Month – Part 3

We heard many times in the last decade that lowering our meat intake has great benefits on someone's overall health.  *Benefits such as:

- Lowering your chances of developing colon cancer

- Lowering your chances of developing high blood pressure

- Lowering your chances of developing Alzheimer's disease

- Lowering your chances of developing type II diabetes

- Lowering your chances of having a stroke

* World Health Organization, Meat consumption and health perspectives, October 2015.

But did you know that lowering your meat consumption can also have a significant positive effect on the health of our planet and our environment ?  According to a new study conducted by a group of researchers from Oxford University, shifting diets toward eating more plant-based foods on a global scale could reduce between 6 and 10 percent of mortality — saving millions of lives and billions of dollars — even as it also cuts out 29 to 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions linked to food by the year 2050. ** 

WOW! Those are impressive numbers!!

How can you lower your meat intake and still have a healthy, well balanced diet?

That's what we will share with you during our next free webinar-conference on April 5th at 8:30pm in english and 7:30pm in french.

Happy Nutrition Month!

Yes it is, March is the month of nutrition and if you are familiar with our services at EnerJ Optimal Health, you already know that nutrition plays a very important role in the services we offer you; our clients and how passionate we are about this topic.

Today, more and more people are confused with the overwhelming amount of information on nutrition available and how difficult it is to make healthy food choices that are both simple and will help sustain short and long term health.

That being said, we also live in a period of so much variety and abundance in foods from all different countries and cultures.

Nutrition-Travel-Health
To celebrate the month of nutrition, we would like to suggest you to embark on a health-adventure in your kitchen.

- Identify one country that you would really like to visit

Ex. Greece

- Find-out a typical meal (ideally healthy) from that country.

Ex. Greek Horiatiki salad

http://www.greekcooking.co/greek-salad-horiatiki-salata.html

- Add this recipe to your menu this week and while you are savoring this exquisite meal, imagine yourself traveling this amazing country.

By the way, if you like the idea of Greece and Greek salad, tell yourself that on top of helping you dream about the warm Greek sunshine, this recipe is loaded with healthy essential fats (Omega 3) that are good for your heart, your brain, your skin, etc., etc., etc.
