Calcium

Here are nine foods for you to consider that are rich in calcium.

1. Soybeans - one cup of cooked soybeans contains 175 milligrams of calcium.

2. Okra - one cup of cooked okra will add 172 milligrams of calcium to your diet. Okra is a versatile veggie too because you can fry it or boil it and it goes with just about any meat.

3. Almonds - One ounce, approximately 22 to 24 nuts, has 75 milligrams of calcium, and it is another versatile food because it can be added to your salad, they can be chopped or slivered and added to a cooked dish, for example a chicken dish and a handful of these little gems make a great snack.

4. Collard greens - a cup of cooked collard greens will add 266 milligrams to your diet. Here’s a cool tip, the next time you make yourself a salad replace the lettuce or add to the lettuce some collard greens.

5. Oranges - just a half cup of oranges offers 52 milligrams of calcium and they are a nice compliment to a fruit salad or a green salad.

6. Spinach - a cup of cooked spinach has 245 milligrams of calcium. Substitute spinach for lettuce in your salads and sandwiches.

7. Broccoli - two cups of cooked broccoli has 124 milligrams of calcium.

8. Sesame seeds - Check this out!  Just a quarter cup of these wonderful seeds contains a whopping 351 milligrams of calcium.  Sprinkle them on your salads, chicken dishes, and fish dishes. There are also great by the handful.

9. Brazil nuts - another great addition to your salads and main dishes and just two ounces has 90 milligrams plus protein. That’s about a dozen nuts.

10. Celery - two cups contains about 80 milligrams of calcium plus protein. You can add it to your salads, cook with it in your favorite dishes, or just eat it raw with some peanut butter for a healthy snack.

So there you have it, a number of excellent options on getting the calcium your body needs on a daily basis. Do some research on your own and you may be surprised at the foods that are a great source of calcium.  Also consume organic foods if possible.

If you consume calcium that comes from animal protein, and that includes dairy products, your body won’t absorb it, and it will pass straight on through. Calcium that comes from vegetables, like those mentioned above, are assimilated very well by the human body and you’re also getting the vitamins and minerals as well.

I use spinach quite frequently in salads and if you do the same, you might not be aware that spinach actually contains a chemical called oxalate that inhibits the body’s ability to absorb the calcium, so if you eat it raw use a vinegar based dressing because most kidney stones are formed from calcium oxalate. However if you boil the spinach for a few minutes you will remove the chemical. Just don’t use the boiling for anything else because the chemical is in the water.

This diet program is specifically designed to get rid of fat forever. Some say the low carb and Paleo style diets are superior for losing weight. The truth is this type of diet wipes out your mental and physical ability. It has a negative impact on your hormone levels, which of course, makes it harder to lose fat and build muscle. Some say high protein diets burn more fat and build more muscle. The truth is too much protein creates gastro intestinal issues and you can wind up with more fat. The best diet for a healthy lifestyle can be a real problem, pick the wrong one and you are doomed to fail, and there are a ton of diet plans available.

GET SUGAR FREE

Do you know what the number one addiction around the world is? I thought about this, but really couldn’t come up with a solid answer. At first I thought drugs, but globally? I don’t know. Then I thought alcohol, it is legal, but again worldwide? I just wasn’t sure. I also thought the same thing about prescription pain killers, so I decided to research it. I was amazed to find that it was something that never entered my mind. In fact, it surpasses drugs and alcohol combined. Sugar, most processed sugar is pure empty calories. Now check this out; in the 1700’s sugar was quite rare and only people  with big bucks could afford it. The average consumption was roughly four pounds a year. In the 1900’s there was a huge increase to ninety pounds a year. Hold on, it gets worse, as of 2008 that amount has doubled, ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY POUNDS a year. As much as we all love sweet things it is important that we get sugar out of our diet as much as possible and I’ll be the first one to admit that it’s tough to do and we need all the help we can get. This program will show you how to lose weight forever, stop stress eating, and get off sugar for good.

HEALTHY TASTY SNACKS

I love a real tasty snack, don’t you?  The problem is most really tasty snacks are not good for you, loaded with calories and sugar, and a bunch of words I can’t even pronounce. Hang on for a minute, I’m going to the kitchen and get some potato chips, I’m back, I forgot, I ate them all last night…I love a good potato chip.  Seriously though I do try to eat healthy most of the time, but sometimes I just got to say what the heck, once in a while ain’t gonna hurt.  Everything in moderation I always say. I’m always looking for something new and healthy and I came across a snack recipe book loaded with healthy tasty snack recipes that are sugar free, gluten free, Paleo friendly, and, oh yeah, none of them require any baking.  As I was flipping through some of the recipes and checking out some of the photos all of a sudden my potato chips aren’t very appealing.  These recipes look fattening and taste fattening, it’s hard to believe they are one hundred percent healthy, and one hundred percent no cooking. I forgot to mention there is also a dessert section with healthy recipes and no baking required. I have this gigantic sweet tooth so I’m really anxious to give these recipes a try. This is the most awesome collection of healthy snack recipes I have ever seen.
