Add more pleasure to your life! Eat great food! 8/21/10

Go to events page and sign up for the one day urban retreat October 17th in NYC! 

The purpose of making changes is to add more pleasure to your life. So many people give up on adding pleasure because they think that making a change is simply too hard. I think lugging around an unhealthy body, feeling lethargic and sick is much harder. 
Over the next few weeks I will send out foods that are really great to add to your list of great food choices. The foods on this list are foods that are packed with essential vitamins and minerals and also promote great health. It is much easier to prevent illness than to heal it. I read a statistic recently that said only 10% of Americans eat foods that would enable them to be free of chronic disease and premature death. 

I believe that taking care of your body leads to living a life you love in a body you love and that is the foundation of a successful life! When you feel good, you radiate good and you attract good. Make yourself available for more good than you have ever experienced in your life before. Add good food to your life NOW!

Good food has amazing healthy properties! The food highlight of today is...SPINACH.

What puts spinach at the top of the list? Well here are a few reasons. You can eat it fresh, frozen, juice it, steam it, or mix it into a great sandwich or salad but add it as much as you can! 

All dark green leafy greens are extremely healthy and should be added to your diet as much as possible. Here are a FEW key reasons.

High fiber great for elimination and detoxification
Great source of Iron 
High in antioxidants which slows down aging 
Help protect against cancer and heart disease 
Has anti-inflamatory qualities which helps conditions such as arthritis, asthma, migrains and osteoporosis. 
It has omega 3 fatty acids which very few vegetables have
Improves brain function
Very low in calories

Since most people live a very sedentary lifestyle, driving to and from work, sitting at a desk all day then watching hours and hours of TV it is important to choose good quality food that is low in calories as well. Spinach is at the top of the list!
You couldn't find a pill that has all the benefits of spinach. By adding a little spinach to your life you could be adding years of well-being also. Choosing good quality foods will help you crowd out the less than healthy choices. 

Love your body, love your life, love your food and it will love you!
Enjoy it.
