Omega-3 is a nutrient that is very essential for everyone’s health but isn’t produced by the body. Instead, it can be taken in from the outside sources and through supplementation.
In the U.S., 99% of its population aren’t getting enough omega-3 fatty acids from natural sources. This deficiency sometimes results to several health problems. But this hasn’t been clear on some, as the symptoms for the lack of omega-3 are sometimes just attributed to another condition’s symptoms.

It’s not always easy eating as a vegan. While I am not personally a vegan, I still believe that even with dietary restrictions, it is possible to have healthy and yummy food options. Even after going through surgery. Typically after you go through oral surgery like wisdom teeth extraction or jaw surgery, you have to take some time off for recovery. This also means participating in a no-chew diet for several weeks. You don’t want to go right into raw foods as this may interrupt the healing process. This means soft foods, soups, smoothies, and unlimited soy ice cream. I feel like a lot of the times people are daunted by this kind of diet, but I’m here to help you get through it.

Consuming the right balance of vitamins and minerals helps to keep us healthy. Essential fats and amino acids also play a key role. The body makes some of these, but generally we must rely on our dietary intake of a variety of foods to keep our vitamin and mineral stores at the right levels. Some vitamins can’t be stored by the body, such as Vitamin C, so we need to consume enough to meet our needs every day.

The phenomena is becoming so widespread that it’s even affecting football players! And yes, even they claim to have increased energy and stamina because of their vegan diet. Perhap you’ve not heard of the superpowers that come from becoming a vegan, but just finish this blog and you’ll find out. A vegan is one who does not eat animals or animal products and instead eats vegetables, beans, wheat products, soy products, and anything else that is not a product or by-product of an animal.

Notice when people start contemplating about losing weight they always want to see fast results? This impatience stems from their awareness that shedding off unwanted and unsightly adipose is a tedious and painstaking process, one that requires one hundred and one percent of their dedication. But dedication isn’t enough to keep you on the right track for long. When you’re dealing with issues such as weight loss dedication is just one of its facets. You also need knowledge and wisdom to steer you in the right direction. Being in the right direction means that the methods you intend to employ should be safe and effective without long term side effects. Since there are hundreds to even thousands of weight loss strategies introduced to man on a daily basis, filtering out the safe ones is of utmost importance. Always keep in mind that even though a certain strategy took effect right away it does not necessarily mean it is safe. Every time a weight loss strategy is being introduced to you always resolve to ask its margin of safety and its efficacy. And don’t just ask anyone, ask your doctor, do your research and read reviews and feedbacks.

The land of oyster omelettes, fruit salads covered in prawn paste and slurpy spicy soups containing an obligatory dash of chillies and fish flakes, not to mention various kinds of tough-to-identify meat strips, can be a little tough to navigate for newbies to Penang. Prepare to eat a lot of fresh fruit (by themselves) and rather strange looking (and tasting!) desserts…Don’t worry though, there are plenty of Western-style as well as more familiar Thai eateries if you get too spooked by Penang’s thriving street food scene – an irrepressible and complex mix of Indian, Malay, Chinese and Thai cuisines.

Olive oil seems to have made its way into the vast majority of kitchens nowadays. Most people appreciate the health benefits of cooking with and eating olive oil as part of a balanced diet. Oils are also great to use as dressings for salads, as part of a marinade and even for dips for cooked, hot breads. However, one thing that many people never consider is producing their very own flavored oils that can easily be used for any of these tasks. Not only will a few bottles of flavored oil brighten up your kitchen, they will also go a long way to brightening up your plate and helping certain foods to taste much better.
