I just finished listening to Tosca Reno on 102.1 The Edge Toronto — talking about how to increase your libido/sexual health through diet.
Anyone else listen to this segment? I loved the fact that Dean Blundell was endorsing the facts that men need to Eat Clean for better sex!
If that’s not motivation for us to clean up our diets, I don’t think anything will work!
One thing that Tosca said that stuck with me was that “You can eat your way out of health, or you can eat your way IN TO health” – It’s ultimately your decision. Nutrition is a KEY component in your future health, so why are you still eating the junk?
My fave – “Morning Greens Smoothie”… I literally CRAVE it each day now!
Eating a nice veggie-rainbow! Clean Eating – yes! (Cilantro, Tomato, Zucchini, Red Onion)
If your not ready to do a full overhaul of your diet, start to think about a time that WILL be right for this. Make a few little changes each month, and cut the crap from your kitchen slowwwwly!
In other news – it’s Bell Let’s Talk day today— which is raising awareness for Mental Health.
I’m super intrigued by this topic, especially since I just finished studying it in school. We must realize that the faces of mental illness are not just certain stereotypes of people— it actually affects a whopping 1 in 5 people, making it an extremely important issue to become aware of. Everybody can think of someone affected by Mental Health issues, and today is a time to bring awareness to it…
A quote from Bell Let’s Talk…
“Once depression is recognized, help can make a difference for 80% of people who are affected, allowing them to get back to their regular activities”.
Spread the word (and the love) people!
Relating this back to nutrition– ZINC is a commonly deficient nutrient in people with mental health disorders. Zinc is in every body cell and it’s necessary for the proper action of your hormones. It plays an especially large role in the development of Alzheimer’s and Anorexia.
Ways to get your Zinc?
(Yes you can take a good multi-vitamin, but let’s talk food…)
- Oyster (you best source!) – but since I don’t eat Oysters, what else ?
- Pumpkin Seeds – these little green guys are VERY high in Zinc
- Ginger Root
- Whole Wheat/Rye
- Brazil Nuts
How Do You Like YOUR Zinc?
