  • Add Blood Type
  • Add Organ Donor Information
  • Your Personal Information, Height, Weight, etc

Find a Healthier Bread

Breaking bread is not always what it’s made out to be. You need to make sure to read the food label on bread to make sure that it’s packing the grains and lower calories. Just because it’s brown doesn’t necessarily mean it healthier for your. Some break companies actually die their bread brown spoof you into thinking it’s healthier. Wheat doesn’t necessarily mean it’s whole grain. Look for better descriptors like 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain. Multigrain like 7 or 12 grain doesn’t mean 100%. Could be they are using just different kind of refined grains.

Most people don’t know this but some of the healthiest breads are actually in the freezer section of your grocery store. Typically the are made without preservatives and so need to be frozen to maintain shelf life. Keep them in the freezer when you get home.

So check the label for Total Carbohydrates and Dietary Fiber. There should be at least 1 g of Dietary Fiber for every 10 g of Carbohydrates.

Quick Tip for a Healthier Bread

Less than 80 calories and at least 2 grams of dietary fiber per slice. Remember you normally eat two slices so you need to double your ingredients.

How Do I Keep from Getting the Flu

It’s that time of year and we are ramping up to another flu season. With flu and Covid19 on my mind, I did a little reading on how to help prevent the flu. We should have already been doing some to the same things to prevent the flu as we would for any virus. Here are some ideas I’ve found.

  • Get a flu shot - If you older get the super flu shot
  • Eat Healthy, fruits, vegetables, fish basically a Mediterranean diet
  • Take a brisk walk, it will help boost your immunities
  • Get plenty of sleep, 8 hours is the preference, set your room up for good sleep
  • Vitamin D, if you life in the north and don’t get winter sun take supplements
  • Use an Humidifier - Virus linger longer in dry air
  • Wear a mask and stay socially distant
  • Wash your hands often, everything you touch can carry virus
  • Don’t touch public surfaces, eat at buffets, use the pen from the wait staff

What other ideas do you have?
