Traditionally Chili con carne, meaning Chili with Meat, is made with peppers, garlic, onions and beef that can be either ground or in chunk form . But although it is delicious in its own right, it lacks all of the vitamins and minerals that can be found in this low fat, heart friendly version. This recipe will make 10 -12 servings.

Legumes

Legumes are perhaps the healthiest of all food groups. They are full of antioxidants, calcium, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Some legumes were a food staple as early as 6,000 BC in many areas and were eaten as a replacement for meat. Today many vegetarians still use legumes as a protein replacement in their daily meals. Legumes are widely available, relatively inexpensive and store well.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are eaten worldwide and considered a very heart healthy food choice. A single medium size tomato contains over a gram of protein and almost 1 1/2 grams of fiber. They are also high in vitamins A,C, B6, Niacin and folate.

Although tomatoes are already super healthy when eaten raw, studies show that they are even more healthy after they have been cooked. The chemical lycopene ( it makes the tomatoes red ) is a great antioxidant, but when it is heated it becomes super charged.

Peppers

Peppers are packed with vitamins C, A, K, E, B1, B6, triptophan (an essential amino acid) fiber, potassium and folate.

Corn

Corn is an excellent source of fiber. It also contains vitamins C, B1, B5 and folate ( important during pregnancy)

Olive Oil

Olive Oil is considered a “good oil ” and has proven been to control LDL (bad cholestrol) Olive Oil also lowers the risk of certain cancers and the formation of gall stones.

Ingredients for Chili

Pterostilbene for lowering cholesterol is one of the hottest emerging topics in natural health. This naturally occurring antioxidant with the tongue-twisting name is the active ingredient in the oldest heart tonics, wines made from grapes or berries, and in the newest nutritional supplements, such as Life Extension Resveratrol with Pterostilbene Veggie Caps.

A Novel Method for Lowering Cholesterol

Plants make pterostilbene when they are under stress. When a grape vine or a berry bush is attacked by a fungus, it makes this antioxidant to limit damage from any infections and also to help it deal with heat and drought.

It turns out that this compound also has protective effects in humans. This plant chemical lowers cholesterol not by paralyzing enzymes in the liver that make cholesterol, or by providing fiber to absorb cholesterol while it is still in the gut. Pterostilbene works by activating a gene called peroxisome proliferator-activated factor alpha, or PPAR-alpha.

PPAR-alpha is activated when we don’t eat enough food for our daily needs. It enables enzymes that burn fat, and it keeps the liver from turning dietary fat into LDL cholesterol by “turning off” a gene called AIP. Activating PPAR-alpha also makes it easier for cells to use insulin to absorb sugar, lowering blood sugar levels while it lowers blood cholesterol levels.

Not Easy to Get By Drinking Wine or Eating Blueberries

Although pterostilbene, which is chemically similar to the heart-protective red grape compound resveratrol, is abundant in grapes, it is even more abundant in blueberries. Drinking red wine and eating blueberries, however, will not deliver enough pterostilbene to make large differences in your blood cholesterol readings.

That is why natural products makers extract this important phytochemical from a plant called heartwood. In Ayurvedic medicine this plant is known vijyasar, and in botany it is known as Pterocarpus marsupium. Extracts made from the plant allow users of the supplement to get far more pterostilbene without the sugar, calories, and alcohol of drinking red wine.

A Substitute for a Low-Fat Diet?

Drugs that activate PPAR receptors often lower cholesterol regardless of diet, but throwing away your list of foods that help lower cholesterol is premature. The best results from using pterostilbene will always result from a combination of low-calorie diet (if not necessarily low-fat diet), exercise, and any needed medications.

It is only honest to note that the benefits of pterostilbene are only proven by traditional use of the Ayurvedic herb vijaysar and by laboratory experiments with animals. The best nutritional supplements combine pterostilbene with another chemical found in grapes and berries, resveratrol. The resveratrol in the formula acts quickly while the pterostilbene acts slowly, providing maximum protective effect.

Winter makes us hungry for hot, filling, thick and hearty soups. For most Americans, this means turning to meat and poultry based soups. In actuality, after the rich and fatty foods consumed during the holidays, vegetable-based soups are a better choice.

Meaty, difficult to digest main dishes take up almost one third of the American food dollar. Vegetable-based soups, particularly bean and grain soups, cost a tiny amount and are every bit as filling – and tasty, if cooked properly.

Soups made with grains and legumes, such as barley, rice and lentils are as hearty, and thicker than many meat or poultry based soups. A great example is split pea soup. It is difficult to imagine hearty pea soup made without a ham bone, plus the ham left over from Christmas or New Year’s Day. Yet there is an entirely vegetarian recipe that tastes almost exactly the same as ham based pea soup – without a touch of meat.

This recipe is adapted from the original recipe “Vegetarian Pea Soup,” The Los Angeles Times Natural Foods Cookbook, by Jeanne Voltz, 1973.

Ingredients for Vegetarian Soup Recipe

  • 1 pound split peas
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 onions
  • 6 or more ribs celery sliced horizontally
  • 2 – 4 carrots, sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • black pepper to taste

Vegetarian Recipe for Pea Soup

  1. Vegetarian Pea Soup starts with a pound of dry split peas in a large pot of water. The amount of water does not matter, as water can be added at any time in the process, but two quarts are recommended to begin. Bring the split peas to a boil, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Add a whole onion studded with 3 whole cloves, a bay leaf, several ribs of celery (chopped), several carrots (sliced into rounds) salt and black pepper. Simmer for another 30 minutes.
  3. Chop 2 more onions and fry in 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick) until translucent but not browned. Add to soup when peas are completely absorbed.
  4. Top servings with whole grain toast on top.

Vegetarian Soups

Like many vegetarian recipes, vegetarian split pea soup tastes as warm and good as pea soup with ham. Like all soups, it thickens when left over. Depending on the size of the family, it can last several days.

Warm and Comforting

For those who like traditional pea soup, this soup is addictive. Once you eat a bowl, it is so warm and filling it is hard not to have another bowl!

Niacin is a B3 vitamin that may be found in meats, milk, seeds, wheat, leafy greens and other vegetables. However, many health experts agree that obtaining enough niacin through diet alone may be difficult when attempting to lower cholesterol levels. The great news is that studies show niacin has been used successfully over the years for just that purpose in over-the-counter supplemental form.

Years of Research

In my early thirties, I loathed the idea of my doctor’s recommended statin drug regimen for high cholesterol. Seeing the drug scribbled on his prescription pad at my young age sent me headlong into years worth of research into natural effective alternatives. On that day, I also committed to monitoring my bloodwork regularly, absolutely essential to knowing if any chosen remedy is effective. This is how I stumbled across niacin, as well as many other amazing natural supplements and vitamins that I will cover extensively in future articles.

My Blood Test Results

Although results will vary depending on the individual, my blood test results revealed a vast reduction in LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) of 36% from 113 to 72 after taking 500 mg of niacin daily for one year. This is well below the recommended maximum level of 99 for my age group. My HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) increased 22% from from 53 to 68. The goal for my HDL level is to be above 40.

How Niacin Reduces Plaque & Prevents Heart Disease

I have read many complicated descriptions of how LDL and HDL work, but one of the best explanations I’ve ever heard was put in simple terms by world renowned cardiologist, Dr. Oz, host of his own ABC daytime talk show, The Doctor Oz Show. He has also been a frequent guest of Oprah Winfrey, as one of several cardiologists that treated President Bill Clinton and co-author of the easy-to-read, You: The Owner’s Manual.

Dr. Oz explains that homocysteine (a by-product of protein) and high blood pressure gouges holes in our arterial walls. The holes are then filled with sticky LDL particulates that build until they starve and die from outgrowing the blood supply. This sends an electrical charge that attracts plaque in the form of inflammation until the artery clots entirely, leading to heart attack or heart failure. Additonally, if a piece of the arterial wall flakes off due to excessive gouging and damage, it may flow into the bloodstream and up to the brain, causing a stroke.

On the other hand, if blood pressure and homocysteine levels are kept in check and HDL levels are high, this scenerio may be prevented all together. High levels of HDL swooshes through our arteries and removes excess LDL, preventing a build-up of plaque. This is why the goal is to lower LDL and raise HDL. In worldwide studies, niacin has been shown to do both. It has even been shown to reverse pre-existing plaque build-up, which is key in preventing hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis.

Niacin vs. Statins

According to numerous studies and health experts:

Niacin

  • Lowers LDL (Bad Cholesterol)
  • Raises HDL (Good Cholesterol)
  • Lowers Triglycerides
  • Lowers Blood Pressure
  • No Damaging Side Effects
  • Does Not Deplete COQ10
  • Costs Approx $6 for 6 Months Worth
  • Causes Temporary Flushing

Statins

  • Lower LDL
  • Do Not Raise HDL
  • May Modestly Lower Triglycerides
  • Do Not Lower Blood Pressure
  • Possible Side Effects Include Liver, Muscle & Nerve Damage
  • Deplete COQ10
  • Cost Approx $600 for 6 Months Worth of Name Brands
  • No Flushing

Nicotinic Acid, Niacinamide & the “Niacin Flush”

The two types of niacin typically discussed are nicotinic acid and niacinamide. Nicotonic acid is the supplement known to reduce cholesterol that may also produce a flush or warm tingly feeling on the skin temporarily after ingesting. However, if taken daily (without missing a dose) and with food, most or all of the flush feeling is diminished. Niacinamide or “flush-free niacin” does not produce a flush, but has shown to be ineffective in reducing LDL and/or raising HDL. When testing niacinamide myself, I found that my LDL increasd 45%, so I returned quickly to nicotinic acid and have been watching my LDL drop back down to healthy levels ever since.

Blood Pressure

The national median blood pressure is approximately 129/86. My daily niacin regimen effectively decreased my blood pressure from 130/90 in 2005 to 116/75 in 2006. The ideal blood pressure is approximately 115/76, so I was very pleased with the results. Many articles report blood pressure reductions from niacin usage.

Where to Buy Niacin

You may buy niacin over-the-counter. However, I have found that purchasing on-line allows for more comparative shopping and ultimately, a lower price. I’ve also found more vitmains and supplements on-line made here in the USA. I personally find this more reassuring in terms of testing and contents.

Importance of Regular Blood Testing & Physician Advice

Prior to any supplemental regimen, a blood test should be obtained to determine your current cholesterol levels. Continuing testing regularly as instructed by your physician is the only way to know if a vitamin or supplement is working for you. While this article is based on my direct blood test results and extensive research, it is editorial in content and you should always consult your physician prior to beginning any vitamin and supplement regimen. Some supplements are known to interact with certain medications.

You can even shorten the marinating time to just 10 minutes if you are really in a hurry. The recipe will still turn out fine.

The best way to serve these chicken fajitas is do-it-yourself buffet style. Just set out the warmed tortillas, vegetables and chicken in separate serving dishes.

People who have Fibromyalgia experience chronic pain and tenderness all over their body.  Chronic pain last much longer than expected, when compared to normal pain that an individual will experience from an injury.

Chronic pain is connected with irregularities in brain hormones as the neurochemical changes in the body intensify which makes and individual experience sensitivity to pain and the chronic pain becomes unbearable.

Who gets Fibromyalgia and who is at risk?

Fibromyalgia is common problem affecting many people globally. Risk factors for fibromyalgia comprise of the following:

Gender/ Age 

Fibromyalgia occurs more frequently in middle aged women. Though Fibromyalgia can affect both male and women but it is estimated that about 80 percent are women sufferers and about 20 percent are male.

Family history

If a family member has Fibromyalgia then there is a possibility you will develop this condition as well

Irregular sleep patterns

It is not proven that irregular sleep patterns are a cause or can result in Fibromyalgia, but it is known that individuals with definite sleep conditions can also develop to getting fibromyalgia.

Additional conditions that can result in Fibromyalgia

Musculoskeletal ailments such as rheumatoid arthritis possibly will increase the risk for developing fibro.

Fibro Symptoms:

  • Extreme pain
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Memory problems
  • Headaches
  • Tender points
  • Morning stiffness
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Sleep problems
  • Numbness
  • Tingling in arms, feet, legs
  • Urinary problems

Despite the fact that Fibromyalgia pain is experienced all over the body but there is certain places on the body where pain is more intense and that is called the tender joints.

These tender joints are generally found on the following spots on the body:

  • Elbows
  • Upper chest
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Upper buttocks
  • Front and back of neck
  • Upper chest
  • Middle and upper back of shoulders

But thanks to the constant research being done to help those individuals dealing with this illness there is a Fibro cream and many medications to help those sufferers find some relief from their chronic pain.

 

What is the treatment for Fibro pain?

Though many fibro sufferers evade exercise in fear of pain, exercise is the most important.  Exercise discharges natural painkillers in the body called endorphins and allow people with this illness to receive the benefits of exercise without suffering from more pain. Physical therapy benefits those with fibromyalgia to exercise with more proficiency as this method helps to relax the muscles throughout everyday living. Physical therapy particularly helps with better posture which comforts pain and fatigue by assisting better muscle functions.

Antidepressants help to treat depression, insomnia, tiredness and discomfort, and by taking the anticonvulsant drug Lyrica this helps to improves everyday function and decrease pain.

Fibro is a chronic condition but it is life-threatening and the symptoms will undoubtedly never disappear entirely but they often improve with treatment. It is imperative to educate families about the condition if you have been diagnosed with the condition as people need to understand that the pain is real and that the condition is not merely created by stress or depression.

Refer to your doctor if you experience overall aching or extensive pain that persists for several months and find a doctor who has a comprehensive knowledge of fibromyalgia.

Remember if you are a Fibro sufferer do not give in to the disease, remain positive and to try and maintain an active lifestyle and you will find relief to your pain.

Know Your Exfoliants

Out with the old, in with the new. That is the job of an exfoliant: to remove old and dead skin, allowing new and healthier skin to resurface. I have seen exfoliants at spas and nail shops open near me. Exfoliating is a great way to achieve radiant skin that is soft and smooth because it allows the new skin to retain moisture, which also slows the aging process.

Although exfoliants can help your skin look amazing, if you’re not careful, they can also damage skin that is sensitive, dry, or acne prone. Ingredients in exfoliants can contain fruit seeds, shells, botanical extracts and alpha hydroxyl acids. If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to find a product that has small granules so as not to break the skin. Also, make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients of the exfoliants. Some ingredients can lead to breathing problems, which can make you start storing. You may have to buy the best CPAP machines to stop the snoring.

Other types of exfoliants are salt or sugar-based scrubs.

Here are the three most common ingredients in acid exfoliants:

  • Alpha hydroxy acids include Glycolic Acid (Origin:Sugar Cane), Lactic Acid (Milk), Tartaric Acid (Grapes), Citric Acid (Citrus Fruits), Malic Acid (Apples), and Mandelic Acid ( Almonds). These ingredients are good for treating dry skin, acne and sun spots, and improving skin texture, reducing fine lines, and increasing skin thickness. The most effective alpha hydroxy acid is glycolic acid because it increases cell exfoliation and replacement, and reduces surface oils.
  • Beta hydroxy acids are more effective in treating blemishes. Salicylic acid treats acne, dandruff, psoriasis, and dermatitis. This product is good for sensitive skin.
  • Tretinoin ( Vitamin A acid, Retin-A, Renova ) treats acne and aging, sun damaged skin. This product can cause irritation within the first few days.

Exfoliants don’t necessarily have to be a facial or body scrub, they can also come in the form of cleansing accessories. The newest trend are the easy to use facial cleansing cloths that contain small fibers to gently exfoliate the face. Loofah sponges and exfoliation brushes in combination with your favorite cleanser also help exfoliate the skin. For rougher skin, such as the heels of your feet or elbows, an exfloliation brush is probably best.

A clean kitchen is a critical aspect of food safety. In fact, a dirty kitchen is one of the most common causes of food contamination in the house. Thus, if you want to keep your family safe from food contamination and the health risks it poses, it’s crucial that you maintain a clean kitchen. It’s as simple as following a few practical kitchen cleaning tips.

There are no special techniques needed to clean the kitchen. It’s not rocket science either. You simply have to keep your kitchen organized so you will have a much easier time cleaning it. Then again, being organized is easier said than done. Here are some of basic kitchen cleaning tips you can follow in order to keep your clean hygienic and clean.

Kitchen Cleaning Tips #1: Remove Clutter from Your Kitchen

You will have a hard time cleaning your kitchen if there is just too much clutter in it. So how do you solve the problem of a cluttered kitchen? You start by removing things you don’t need in the kitchen or don’t really belong in the kitchen.

For instance, broken appliances, tools and chemical cleansers have no place in your kitchen. If you’re keeping a broken appliance for sentimental reasons, box it and store it in your attic, basement or garage. This special appliance has a much higher chance of lasting if you store it properly instead of having it in the kitchen where it may easily be knocked over. Besides, the kitchen is the last place you’ll want to keep a special piece of memento for posterity. The fluctuating temperature and humidity levels are going to slowly, but surely, erode any piece of appliance.

Cleaning your kitchen would go much more quickly and easily each time if everything has its place in your kitchen. It’s best if you can have different compartments for each kitchen item. For instance, have a separate compartment for utensils such as knives, spoons, pans, and other small items you regularly use. You should also have separate storage for kitchen towels, paper towels, foils, and paper cups.

A well-organized kitchen would be easier to clean and very pleasing to look at. You can also effectively avoid cross contamination if your kitchen is organized and not cluttered.

Kitchen Cleaning Tips #2: Clean as You Go

The “Clean as You Go” dictum is the most basic principle applied by all food companies to comply with good manufacturing practice (GMP) standards. You can also adapt this GMP practice in your kitchen. You have to ensure that you clean everything in your kitchen before leaving it. Do not leave a single utensil unwashed on the kitchen sink. Rinse dirty plates, glasses and utensils and place them in the dishwasher until the next run.

You should also ensure that kitchen towels are replaced after you use them. To minimize your work, use disposable paper towels in the kitchen. This way, you can spare yourself from having to always wash greasy and stained cloth towels.

If you practice the “Clean as You Go” method, you will be able to maintain a hygienic and sanitary kitchen. You can also effectively avoid the hazards of food contamination. Your your family will be safe from food-borne diseases and food poisoning.

Kitchen Cleaning Tips #3: Avoid Using Sponges to Clean Your Kitchen

Sponge is one of the top sources of bacteria. That is because this kitchen cleaning material is always damp and can attract lots of microorganisms. So ditch the sponge! Avoid using it to clean kitchen surfaces. You can replace these sponges with paper-based dish wipes. Don’t re-use the paper wipes, though. Immediately dispose of these cleaning materials after each use. Make sure also that you have a sealed storage for your paper wipes to keep them hygienic.

But paper towels can sometimes get too expensive. Have a few wash cloths on hand. If you have an extra drawer, place about a dozen or so wash cloths in there and keep the drawer well-supplied. You can use wash cloths for wiping the counters, stove and oven tops, and even for drying kitchen items. Just make sure that you don’t leave the wash cloths on the sink. Wash and rinse them after every use. Better yet, use a new wash cloth every day.

Kitchen cleaning should become second nature to you, and the above kitchen cleaning tips should help you in your cleaning efforts. You are responsible for keeping your kitchen clean and tidy. Remember the three kitchen cleaning tips mentioned if you want to avoid food hazards and possible diseases. If you maintain the cleanliness of your kitchen, your home will become a healthier place for you and your family.
