Be Prepared

I have found that if I prepackage my snacks (carrot sticks, any cut up fresh veggies), cut up fruit, cheese cubes, etc., I have a better chance of keeping my Blood Sugar regulated. No More Digging thru the cabinets for something to Snack On !!!! emoticon

The First Step is the Hardest !!!

A Little Exercise Goes A Long Way!

When I'm feeling sluggish and don't feel like getting a workout in, I tell myself I can squeeze in 15 minutes. Just a 15 minute walk. When I get on the treadmill, it often turns in to a 45 minute jog. The hardest step is the first.

Walnuts towards the end of a meal can help prevent the hazards that fatty food can do to the arteries and I just read that walnuts can help with back pain...they are very low in sugar and high in dietary fiber and lower the blood cholesterol levels by lowering the LDL ...Walnuts are good for your mood and 7 Walnuts halves can be good for your heart and arteries.

Kale

Kale can slow the release of glucose to prevent insulin spikes...spinach and kale mixed together with olive oil and garlic can be stir-fried for additional benefits. Top with sesame seeds to lower your cholesterol.

NUTS

Walnuts are full of omega-3 fatty acids and diets that contain nuts help reduce the risks of heart disease and type 2 diabetes and help control weight. The healthy fats appear to be the secret nut ingredient that prevents heart disease. Not only walnuts but, pecans, hazelnuts, almonds, and pistachios and cashews... an important part of a low-glycemic diet.
