Refreshing and Nutritious GRAPES!

Standard

There is noting like a hand full of cold grapes on a hot summer day. Their juicy sweetness makes them satisfy our sugar-cravings. They are packed full of phyto-nutrients, anti-oxidants nutrients. and minerals.

Grapes contain resveratrol which is a powerful antioxidant that protects against colon and prostrate cancer, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, and Alzheimer’s disease and viral/fungal infections. It also reduces the risk of stroke.

Sick people are easily surrendered to their doctor for medicine, but what if they just started eating the right foods? What if God already provided for natural methods of good health? Grapes are a perfect example. They also contain Anthocyanins, a class of antioxidants that have anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-cancer activities.

Grapes are low in calories, and have no cholesterol. They are rich in micronutrient minerals like copper iron and  Manganese. They are a good source of Vitamins C, A, K, B-complex, and carotines.

So, remember, when you choose to satisfy your sweet tooth, if you grab a bunch of grapes you are increasing your health, and decreasing disease in your body. If you grab a cookie, candy bar or other sugar filled snack, you are doing the opposite. Choose wisely and live longer!

My Little Glass

Standard

Portion ControlI love my little, glass antique juice glasses. They are perfect for portion control! People tend to overeat nuts and snacks. Having the correct portion in my hand, and enjoying that amount helps keep from over indulging. Nuts are incredible, and high in omega-3, but they also contain enough fat to make you fat, if in regularly over do it. Look for little, 1/2 cup size juice glasses next time you are out at the re-sale shop, or antique store. Enjoying a beautiful glass is part of the savored life. Little things matter. All of life can be a line of poetry.
