Reading a book I picked up in Charlottetown called "SuperFoods Health Style" by Steven G. Pratt. I am LOVING this book. It details the best foods to eat for your health and why. It also includes stuff about how certain foods fight certain cancers and diseases, etc etc....this is all stuff I know you've heard about before but the way the book is sectioned, it's a really neat and easy read. He touches on all aspects of healthy living: exercise, social interaction, sleep, stress management, spirituality, etc. I'm a pretty healthy person overall, but I am finding myself more and more interested in things like food and how they connect to improving specific aspects of your health. He also provides lists of specific product names (for instance, the best cereals, the best breads, etc).
I find when I reach for 'bad' foods now (white flour, refined sugar, that 2nd cup of joe, McNuggets dipped in gravy, a stick of butter coated in candy sprinkles...), I think about how it is sabotaging my health in the long run. And I want to live a long, healthy life....don't we all?
Anyway, we made an easy salmon recipe tonight from the book:
the marinade is: chopped garlic cloves, non-fat yogurt, dijon mustard, paprika, pepper....
and it was dee-lish. I can give you specific measurements if you're interested.
Then we chased 'er down with a little Colt 45 and Crisco shooters.
We all have our setbacks.
