Little seeds pack a big punch! So versatile and easy to add to oatmeal, cereal, meatloaf or just to snack on; choose to eat more seeds.
Sometimes I will substitutes cooked quinoa for rice or sprinkle sunflower seeds on to my salad. If given the choice choose a sesame seed sugar snack bar over one with just sugar and some unknown powder!

Riding a bike is fun, liberating and healthy. It’s also beneficial to change up your cardiovascular workout.
When you decide to ride a bike instead of let’s say, running as you may usually do, different muscles are used. Your body gets “shocked” into moving in a way it’s not used to. This challenges your muscles, making them stronger.
Cycling is also good for the environment. By deciding to ride your bike instead of taking a train or bus or car… This saves the environment large amounts of energy and pollution. So when you decide to travel via your bicycle, you are reducing your environmental footprint. And this of course is less taxing on the earth.
Depending on your weight loss or weight maintenance goals, sushi can be healthy!
For myself, sushi is not deep-fried, I like my Japanese food heavy on the fish and greens.
And most importantly, good quality sushi (I have experienced this in Seattle and Vancouver) puts a smile on my face. But the smile radiates to every single poor inside of my body. I have loved sushi since it first entered my mouth at the age of five!
But whether you love it or hate it, it’s important to make room in your diet for the foods that you love.
Now the question of the day… Is sushi healthy?
We need odour protection, some sort of natural and safe alternative to antiperspirants and harmful chemical-laden deodorants. We use this on our skin every day. And it’s important to remember that the skin is a semi permeable membrane. What we put on our skin, goes into our pores, and into our bodies.
If we are putting chemicals into our bodies every single day, all the eating right, exercise and deep breathing has to compete with these foreign bodies. Educate yourself on the ingredients of not only the foods you eat, but what you put on to your skin.
Even some natural “healthy” deodorants have dangerous chemicals in them!
Mine has essential oils such as a rosemary, lavender, white grapefruit, etc. It also contains very fine starches, organic beeswax, organic coconut oil and activated charcoal to suck out the toxins from my pores. I did a lot of research before finding my perfect formula, and so should you!
I urge you to do your research, smell great and be safe!
This is such a great post workout meal!
For this recipe use regular ground beef. This will render a lot of fat. Halfway through cooking you will drain it for great flavour and less fat. I think seasoning this dish with a fresh lemon boosts the flavour well. These peppers also freeze well, and taste better the next day.
3 red, yellow or orange peppers sliced lengthwise
1 pound regular ground beef
1 white onion, diced
1 teaspoon virgin olive oil
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
The juice of one fresh lemon
1 teaspoon ground oregano
200 g shredded parmesan cheese
I teaspoon Salt and pepper to taste
1. Fry onions in 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add sprinkle of salt and pepper and fry for one minute. Add ground beef, rest of salt and garlic. Fry on medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir periodically. Drain fat, remove.
2. Add lemon juice, oregano and one can of stewed tomatoes and cook for another 10-15 minutes.
3. Preheat your oven for 350°.
4. Using another pot bring water to boil. Add peppers to pot. Let boil for five minutes. Remove peppers and drain. Place peppers open side up in baking dish with reserved fat.
5. Fill peppers with ground beef mixture. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Bake in 350° oven for 30 minutes.
I hope you try this. As you cook the meat mixture you could also add mushrooms, peas, black beans, feta, corn or chili peppers to create your own version of this great dish.
