Dr Oz: Pistachio Health Benefits

Dr Oz says pistachios area a healthy snack choice because they lower cholesterol and can even help you lose weight.

Dr. Oz says that even though we usually refer to pistachios as nuts, they are not nuts at all, but are actually seeds, but since they are a member of the cashew family it often just easier to call them nuts.

Pistachios for Digestion Problems

Here are some fun facts about pistachios and how they compare to other nuts:

  • More protein than walnuts
  • More potassium than pecans
  • Contain 3 times more fiber than cashews

Dr. Oz says another reason he is excited about pistachios is because they can help you lose inches off your waist, which is a big reason to fall in love with pistachios, don’t you think?

Dr Oz: Pistachio Serving Suggestion

Dr. Oz says when you snack on carbs, like chips and pretzels, you end up feeling hungry right after eating them because they do not contain any protein, which is why pistachios are such a good snack choice.They are packed with protein and fiber to make you feel full and satisfied and that is why they are so good for weight loss.

  • Eat at least a 1-ounce serving of pistachios (about 50) every day.
  • Buy unsalted pistachios
  • Purchase either shelled or unshelled

4 Easy Tips To Getting A Better Night’s Sleep

4 Sleep tips from Whole Body Research to getting a better night’s sleep

  1. Keep A Regular Sleep Schedule
  2. Allow Your Mind To Wind-Down BEFORE Bed
  3. Adjust Your Nighttime Food & Drink Intake
  4. Supplement Your Diet With Herbal Sleep Aids

1)  Keep A Regular Sleep Schedule
The first step is to determine the perfect amount of sleep for yourself. It’s different for everyone…8 hours a night is the average, but some people feel more rested with 7 or 9 hours. This all has to do with your body’s unique circadian rhythm…which controls your sleep cycle.

So, keep track of the amount of sleep you get each night for two weeks, and also make a note of how rested you feel each morning. This way, you’ll be able to determine your optimal amount.

Then, you want to create a steady pattern for yourself by really trying to go to sleep and wake up at the same times everyday. This might be the most important action you can take to get a better quality of sleep, because your body requires regular, consistent cycles of “awake” and “sleep.”

2) Allow Your Mind To Wind-Down BEFORE Bed
This sounds simple, but it’s actually one of the hardest things to do in this fast-paced, information-driven world. We tend to stay “connected” online or on our phones right up to the moment we go to sleep.

But your mind needs to start easing into its “sleep cycle” about an hour before you go to sleep. So, I try to stick to a pre-sleep routine every night. This is a great way to spend some time on yourself, and it allows your body to relax…so that when you do hit the pillows, you can fall asleep easily and soundly.

Here are some ideas on how to create your own sleep routine about an hour before bedtime:

  • Dim the lights in the house (light prevents your body’s natural production of melatonin, essential for sleep.)
  • Turn off the TV and the computer – these keep your mind stimulated and prevent your “sleep cycle” from engaging.
  • Take a hot bath.
  • Listen to relaxing music.
  • Read a book or magazine by soft light.

3) Adjust Your Nighttime Food & Drink Intake
What you eat and drink before bedtime has a huge impact on your quality of sleep. But cutting down on food right before you go to sleep can also help you lose weight…it’s one of the first rules of dieting.

Sometimes that can be hard to stick to, but these tips might make it easier:

  • Avoid large meals before bed (eat dinner earlier!)
  • Reduce caffeine consumption overall (and especially none within 4 hours of bedtime)
  • Avoid drinking too many liquids in the evenings. Drink plenty of water in the daytime, but at night this results in frequent trips to the bathroom and disrupts your sleep cycle.
  • If you really need a snack before bed, try one of these: half a turkey sandwich (tryptophan!), granola, a banana, or a small bowl of whole-grain & low-sugar cereal.

4) Supplement Your Diet With Herbal Sleep Aids
Your body produces its own natural compound to help you get to sleep – melatonin – but often this chemical is underproduced due to the over-stimulation of our busy lifestyles. It’s crucial to supplement your body’s natural production of melatonin…as well as with other, even more powerful herbs designed to help you sleep.

Maine Wild Blueberries

Maine wild blueberries fresh or frozen have more anti-oxidant than cultivated blueberries, frozen, canned, or fresh.

I recommend  WYMAN’S Wild Blueberries because these are Maine Blueberries and known nationally as the best anti-oxidants.

They can be found in the frozen berries section at your supermarket.The bags are blue and the writing on the label makes it easy to spot.

These are the #1 anti-oxidant, anti-aging and anti-cancer berries.  Its much cheaper than the 3 quart of cultivated blueberries I bought last summer. I’m saving alot per quart when I buy the Maine Wild Blueberries frozen. The best part is that they are already frozen and cleaned for me, all I have to do is buy them when it is convenient for me.

Tips on Salmon

These tips are from Barbie who is a follower of this site.  Some of her Salmon recipes will be posted shortly.

If you want to save money on protein, try using Geisha pink salmon, look for “wild Caught” on the label near the bar code. Don’t be fooled by other salmon cans stating “Wild Alaskan Salmon” on the front. If the cans don’t say wild caught, the salmon has been farmed raised and fed pure vegetable high saturated oil to fatten them up. One can has 7 servings, only 90 calories, and 12 grams of protein. I often use it like tuna, I crushed the bones (free calcium) lots of people do this, and I don’t bother to scrape off the skin anymore, its easier not to. It’s an excellent source of protein, low calories and very filling, and best of all it is a low cost meal.

The Salmon loaf is so easy, I often don’t put it in a ball, but spread it in a square dish and then use it for sandwiches or sometime I put a clump on my supper plate instead of meat. I think you would really like this if you like tuna fish. It taste the same to me. If it seems too fishy, just give a squirt of lemon juice to it.
