Are You Moving It?

National nutrition month not only encourages everyone to eat well, but also encourages everyone to move it! You don't have to be a marathon runner to enjoy running. You don't have to be an elite cyclist to enjoy riding. You don't have to be a pro of any sport to enjoy playing any sport. Just go out there, have fun, and move to the rhythm of your soul!

The "Bad News"

I recently discovered some personal "bad news". The bad news is that I have somehow become caffeine sensitive. Whenever I would drink chai lattes or have a good amount of chocolate in one sitting, my head would start to feel tight and heavy. Even the nerves in my head would strangely feel pinched.  

The good news is that when I stay away from caffeine containing beverages and food items, my head feels completely fine. However, once in a while I will enjoy me some good chocolate. The way to overcome the horrible side effects I experience is that I take four capsules of activated charcoal. The charcoal somehow gets rid of the ill effects that my head runs into.

I never ever thought that staying away from caffeine would make me feel one hundred percent better and more alive. I'm thankful I discovered this. Don't go on living life with just getting by even if you don't feel good. Take a look at what you eat and drink. Determine what causes you to experience feeling suboptimal in some kind of way. It's amazing how we can feel so much better by eliminating stimulants, like caffeine, from what we eat and drink.

Let's Do It! Celebrate National Nutrition Month One Day at a Time

March is National Nutrition Month!  This year's theme is "Bite Into a Healthy Lifestyle"! 

One of the ways to celebrate is to have a "Meatless Monday".  If you didn't see my tweet earlier today and you are reading this just now...why not at least have a meatless dinner for this evening?  You can start with having a bean, rice, and cheese burrito with some lettuce, tomatoes, and onions along with an orange or apple.  The best beverage to go with any meal is pure and refreshing water. It's a simple start and it's a good start!
