Blueberries have been found to lower abdominal fat, triglycerides, cholesterol, and fasting blood sugar. Preliminary human studies have shown a health benefit. When consumed as a part of a well balanced diet, blueberries may help prevent the metabolic syndrome. Caution should be used when taking blueberries in combination with blood sugar lowering medications as they can potentiate the blood sugar lowering effect. . . . . #HarvestingWellness #NewHarvest #Healthandwellness #Honolulu #HonoluluHawaii #Hawaii #Dr #thedoctorisin #doctors #DrLenleyJackson #altnernativemedicine #alternativemeds #alternatives #alternativemeds #altmed #nutrition #nutritions #nutrion #nutritional #promo #nutritionexpert #Physician #healthcoaches #Honoluluhealth #Honoluluwellness #spiritualhealthing #ailments

CALORIE COMPARISONS!! . As summer is fast approaching I'm back with another ice cream calorie comparison! . By making this simple swap you could make a saving of nearly 800 calories per tub of ice cream. 👀 . That is a crazy amount, you could have 3 tubs of Breyers and still be under the calories it would be for 1 TUB of Haagen Dazs! 😱 . I can vouch for the taste of the Breyers salted caramel and for 340 calories a tub it is well worth it - if you're looking for an ice cream to curb your cravings I would highly recommend. . Comment below with your favourite low calorie ice cream and as always I hope this post was helpful to you in some way! 😃 . #benrikfitdc #rikfitdc #rikfitdynamiccoaching #pt #manchesterpt #personaltrainer #calories #caloriecomparisons #macros #protein #carbs #fats #caloriesareking #bodytransformation #flexibledieting #alternatives #grouptraining #strongman #iifym #breakfast #mealprep #icecream #halotop #haagendazs #caloriealternatives

The world's in the shit and your children are fucked. The ones you think got you are out for your blood. Well, the lines are blurred and washed out with spite. So what exactly do you think you're going to change? United we'll fail, divided we'll fall. We're fucked, but you're making it worse. Give up, 'cause you're making it so much worse. Middle fingers up if you don't give a fuck. I've seen the devil swallowing every single thing I've said. Middle fingers up if you don't give a fuck. You think you're changing anything?

Lately, a few countries have taken great steps forward in #banning #single -use #plastic such as #straws and #bags. There have been feel-good case studies in the use of plastic in making roads, as well as low-cost homes, which are more durable and minimizes plastic #waste. I am hoping that the start of this international #movement will give #Bangladesh the push it needs to take similar measures to minimize, as well as #utilize , our plastic waste. We don't need a reminder of the poor existing waste management practices in-country, and the adverse #climatic and #humanitarian #effects that come as a result. Plastic can persist in the environment for nearly a thousand years before it fully disintegrates.Though a large part of the population depends on plastic for their daily use, nearly one-third of it is not disposed off properly (as seen in the photo) and ends up clogging drains and choking the environment. While we wait, and hope, for further action on #mainstreaming plastic-free #policies nationally, we should address our #individual #roles in evaluating how much we #contribute to plastic waste, and how we can minimize it. Start with identifying what we really don't need- plastic water bottles, plastic straws, #takeaway coffee cups, plastic bags, plastic #packaging on fruit and veggies. #Advocate with your friends and family to take at least one change in their daily #habits. I can guarantee that it will be difficult, particularly when Bangladesh has a lack of #alternatives to many things, BUT if you can assess your impact after one month, you'll see how much difference individual #action makes and it feels SO GOOD.

My heart is weak, tear it down piece by piece. Leave me to think, deep in my structure. I think I still love her but I need some sleep. You've taken my breath away, now I want to breathe. Cause I cannot see what you can see so easily. I thought my demons were almost defeated but you took their side and you pull them to freedom.

Hmmm...which one do I choose? . . The old me would have definitely chosen the granola bar. Gosh those things are good! They made for the perfect quick breakfast or snack on the go. . . I really started to pay attention to nutrition labels. It doesn’t take long and can make a huge difference in things I purchase. Here’s a tip...when buying processed foods try to purchase products with less than 8g of sugar. . . The Beachbars are my go to a couple times a week. Guess what? They have chocolate. They have peanut butter. They have granola. Basically it’s the same exact type ingredients, but a healthier balanced choice. . . There are 30 less calories, half the sodium, half the carbohydrates, and 2.5 times the amount of protein. And they taste delicious! . . It made for a perfect snack while at the amusement park...only my mom took a third, my SIL took the other third and well that didn’t leave me much. 😉 . . I’m challenging you to check the nutrition labels and look for alternative items, but still great tasting items! . . #snack #snackonthego #delicious #nutritionlabels #checkthefacts #alternatives #sharingiscaring #nike #carousel #pink #blenderseyewear #coneyislandamusementpark

This sounds like our kind of book! Recommended by @lacarolinebaum , here’s what Amazon says: In this book, an award-winning journalist tells the story of people devising innovative ways to live as they approach retirement, options that ensure they are surrounded by a circle of friends, family, and neighbors. Based on visits and interviews at many communities around the country, Beth Baker weaves a rich tapestry of grassroots alternatives, some of them surprisingly affordable: • a mobile home cooperative in small-town Oregon • a senior artists colony in Los Angeles • neighbors helping neighbors in "Villages" or "naturally occurring retirement communities" • intentional cohousing communities • best friends moving in together • multigenerational families that balance togetherness and privacy • niche communities including such diverse groups as retired postal workers, gays and lesbians, and Zen Buddhists Drawing on new research showing the importance of social support to healthy aging and the risks associated with loneliness and isolation, the author encourages the reader to plan for a future with strong connections. Baker explores whether individuals in declining health can really stay rooted in their communities through the end of life and concludes by examining the challenge of expanding the home-care workforce and the potential of new technologies like webcams and assistive robots. . . . #alternatives #ageing #livingarrangements #communities #connection #friends #neighbours #freshideas #thebestisyettocome #reinventinggettingold

Are you LACTOSE intolerant?🥛 . Lactose is a type of sugar found in milk. As we know, yogurt, cheese, and of course milk, contain lactose 🧀 . In order for our bodies to digest lactose, we need an enzyme called lactase. People who are lactose intolerant do not produce sufficient enzymes to effectively digest this sugar 🤢 Always make sure to read the labels and make sure is says dairy free. . Here are some things you should avoid if you are lactose intolerant: all types of cow milk and its different forms (ex. Condensed milk) 🥛, all types of yogurt and ice cream that contains milk🍦, cheese 🧀, creamy soups and sauces that contain milk 🥣, all types of desserts that contain milk 🧁, most chocolates (ouch)🍫 . Luckily, there are numerous dairy free alternatives for cheese, yogurt and milk!👏 . Also, like my doctor said, you are not going to go to Italy and NOT eat a pizza 🍕 You just need to take the lactase enzyme to help you digest the lactose! These are small pills such as LacAid and Diary Ease 💊 . Any questions or suggestions?🤩 ———————————————————— ¿Eres intolerante a la LACTOSA? 🥛 La lactosa es un tipo de azúcar que se encuentra en la leche. Como sabemos, el yogur, el queso y, por supuesto, la leche, contienen lactosa 🧀 . Para que nuestros cuerpos puedan digerir la lactosa, necesitamos una enzima llamada lactasa. Las personas que somos intolerantes a la lactosa no producimos suficientes enzimas para digerir esta azúcar🤢 Siempre asegúrese de leer las etiquetas para verificar que el alimento esté libre de lácteos. . Aquí hay algunas cosas que debe evitar si es intolerante a la lactosa: todos los tipos de leche de vaca y sus diferentes formas (por ejemplo, leche condensada) 🥛, todos los tipos de yogur y helado que contienen leche🍦, queso 🧀, sopas cremosas y salsas que contienen leche 🥣, todos los tipos de postres que contienen leche 🧁, la mayoría de los chocolates🍫(ouch) . Por suerte, ¡existen muchas alternativas sin lácteos para el queso, el yogur y la leche! . Como dijo mi médico, no es como si vas a ir a Italia y no comerte una pizza🤷‍♀️ Solo necesita tomar la enzima lactasa para ayudar a digerir la lactosa. Estas son pastillas como Lactaid

I Know my page is mainly about #plastic ,especially single-use plastic and a little bit about #food to make it #fun but the meaning of my page is to help our #planet so we can stop #destroying it by using #alternatives I used so much #paper towel mainly for my mirrors and other random things . I decided to get #microfiber washing cloths . I got these three very large washcloth for not even $7 which means that I'm saving so much #money because I used to buy a roll of paper towel each week . This Will last for months 😎 FACTS- - #Rainforests are responsible for roughly one-third (28%) of the Earth's  #oxygen  but most (70%) of the oxygen in the atmosphere isproduced by #marine plants. The remaining 2 percent of Earth's oxygencomes from other sources. Why are trees so important? -Trees are vital. As the biggest #plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world's #wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter.

My first involvement with the Institute of Food Science and Technology #ifst today Some very thought provoking presentations Amy Glass - Food & Drink Federation (Diet and Health) gave an interesting overview of policy and which #publichealth agendas it is derived from. (Take home message - consumers more acceptable of sweetener in drink rather than food) Jenny Arthur - Leatherhead Food Research (Nutrition and Product Development) opened delegates eyes on the actual role of sugar and what consumers demands are compared to how to deliver that with #alternatives and just how hard sugar is to reproduce the characteristics of! (Take home message - #biscuits wouldn't be biscuits without sugar and taste is ultimately priority for consumers) Lindsey Bagley - Eureka allowed delegates to understand percentages of sugar in various #food groups, the calorific component of that sugar and some thoughts as to how to switch out the sugar and make a change, concluding with some insight into those that have and what they are managing to achieve, and not achieve currently. (Take home message - what is it that fills the gap when sugar is removed?) Alex Rowberry - Kantar Worldpanel gave some result based feedback from their expertly and highly regarded #consumer feedback trends within the food and drink industry, pulling together the current situation following the previous three aspects of sugar reduction. (Take home message - drivers of choice in take home consumption of food and drink 31% health / 49% convenience / 79% enjoyable) Some lively and thought provoking evidence based debate at the end with honest and frank accounts of real life situations and some amazing insights into, what, who, how and why sugar reduction is working, isnt working and the alternatives. #ifstnutrition #nutritionisscience #sugar #caloriedeficit #energyintake #education #sciencecommunication #whatishealthy #reformulation #foodscience #language #foodanddrink

💖 ¿Por qué tenernos envidia cuando podemos tenernos ganas? Vamos a dejar de compararnos, de criticarnos, de juzgarnos sin saber, de querer estar por encima hasta de nosotros mismos, de exigirnos tanto y ser tan crueles. Todos tenemos problemas, una vida; en cada uno hay un mundo. Dejemos de estar en guerra con nosotros mismos, dejemos de proyectar lo peor de nosotros en los demás y tengamos el coraje de enfrentarnos al reflejo y poder amarnos sin tabúes, dejemos de ser tan pendejos. Ojalá el fin del mundo nos pille en una gran orgía donde podamos por fin amarnos, a nosotros mismos y al resto del mundo, sin miedo y sin prejuicios, porque cuando se trata de amar, todo está permitido. Que os corráis a gusto esta noche💋 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #tuesday #yellow #braids #mirror #girl #ink #alternatives #tattoo #blackwork #inkedupgirls #northernlight #tora #valencia #selfcare #love #loveyourself #pride #pride2019 #bi #bisexual

Within the 'lifeless' concrete jungle man has created a 'heaven' a sanctuary to shield him/her from the cruel realities of past transgressions.

Confetti and glitter is a very popular item at celebrations such as birthdays, weddings, graduations, etc. For example, every year in Times Square, the New Years Ball is dropped along with approximately 3,000 pounds of confetti! Although fun, confetti and glitter is very harmful to our environment because it is mostly made from micro-plastics and metal that do not biodegrade easily. Many people throw confetti and glitter in the air and let the wind and rain “clean after it.” In reality, it only ends down storm drains, rivers, lakes, or the ocean. When it sticks to our skin we wash our hands in a sink or rinse our body in the shower. When it gets on our clothes, we throw them in the washer and dryer. Did you know that when we do all of this, it still affects our eco system by ending up in our water sources? Animals such as birds and fish often mistake plastics for food and can have dangerous effects from ingesting it. What I have found to be the most eco-friendly alternative to confetti and glitter is plant confetti. It is cheap because you can make your own confetti from plants simply by collecting flower petals or hole-punching leaves. This is the most natural and safe option because plants naturally fall on the ground and biodegrade on their own. If you want a more convenient and less time consuming choice, I recommend purchasing from a seller on Etsy! Thank you for watching.

Everyday I get out of the shower I look in the mirror and see a true warrior. No matter what I'm going through, no matter what people say or think, and regardless of what this world is coming to, I'm alive and I know the best and worst are yet to come. Many of us don't like to hear that the worst is coming because we only want to hear about the good. But I love knowing that both are coming because I understand reality vs illusion. At the beginning and end of the day I understand I'm responsible for me and everything concerning me therefore what I can change I always will, what I cannot change is not my problem. #grow #adversity #life #truth #alternatives "You are still here"....

: ✏️ —————— There are 2,208 billionaires and 19.6 million millionaires in the world. A billion dollars sounds like a lot of money. But, so does a million dollars. Because of this, most people have difficulties distinguishing between the two wealth categories. The overwhelming majority of North American adults bring in anywhere between $9,000 and $37,000 each year. The average income is about $50,000 per year, and less than 10% of the population brings in over $100,000 per year. If you were to earn an average salary (50k/year), and you were to somehow be able to save all of your income (without spending a single dime), it would take you: A) 20 years to save one-million dollars, B) 200 years to save ten-million dollars, C) 2,000 years to save one-hundred million dollars, and D) 20,000 years to save one billion dollars. Read that again, if you earned an “average” North American salary, and you somehow managed to save every single dime that you made (an impossible task by of itself), it would take you no less than TWENTY-THOUSAND (20,000) years to save one billion dollars! Fortunately, happiness is not contingent on being a “multi-millionaire” or “billionaire”. In fact, numerous multi-variable studies have regularly shown that people reach their absolute highest level of reported happiness when they earn between 60k and 75k per year. The reason for this is simple. “Higher income” individuals are routinely exposed to high degrees of “financial stress” —having to constantly worry about the whims of the global market is no “walk in the park” (after all, a single mistake at that level can lead to permanent financial ruin). “Lower-income” individuals, on the other hand, experience large levels of stress due to their persistent inability to make ends meet. This is why those who earn between 65k and 75k are at their happiest. People in this income category do not generate enough disposable income to build substantial “investments” or “assets” that they can stress over, nor do they experience the psychological burdens of having to live with an “insufficient income”. —A.J.E. ——————
