The Healthiest Food on Earth

Sorry for not visiting you all for wuite sometime. Was back to the Phil. and had undergone many ultrasounds caused by myoma. I'm now okay, no operation was done but I need to be aware of what I'm taking in. Let me share to you some of the things I received which make us healthier and to have a better life. Here they are...

The Healthiest Food on Earth

1. Berries
All berries are low in sugar and high in fiber. Blueberries have been shown to increase memory in lab studies, and raspberries and strawberries are loaded with ellagic acid, a powerful antioxidant that seems to have some anti-cancer properties, according to the American Cancer Society.

2. Beans
Beans are extremely high in fiber, which helps to control weight, prevent or manage diabetes and blood sugar, and may help prevent colon cancer and protect against heart disease. The National Institute of Medicine recommends 25-38 grams of fiber a day. The average American gets only 4-11 grams. One cup of beans provides 11-17 grams.

3. Nuts
Some of the largest and most important long-term studies of diet and health have shown that eating nuts several times a week is consistent with a risk of heart attack and heart disease that is 30%-50% lower than the general population. Just one ounce of nuts-almonds, macadamia, Brazil , walnuts, pecans-eaten three to five times a week seems to be the magic number.

4. Wild Salmon
Fish is the ultimate anti-aging food. Cold-water fatty fish like wild salmon, sardines, mackerel and herring contain omega-3 fats that protect the brain and the heart, improve mood, and lower blood pressure and triglycerides.

5. Raw Milk
Raw, organic milk nearly always comes from grass-fed cows and contains high levels of cancer-fighting CLA (conjugated linolenic acid) as well as a rich assortment of vitamins, minerals and beneficial bacteria (like Lactobacillus acidophilus)

6. Grass-Fed
Meat Meat from grass-fed cows has a much different fat profile than ordinary supermarket meat: high in omega-3s, lower in potentially harmful omega-6s and loaded with CLA, a kind of fat known for its anti-cancer activity. A superb source of protein and vitamin B12, it's also missing the antibiotics, steroids and hormones found in the meat that comes from feedlot farms.

7. Eggs
Considered by many to be nature's most perfect food, the egg is high in protein and relatively low in calories. The yolk contains choline, one of the most important nutrients for the brain, as well as lutein and xeazanthin, two critical nutrients for eye health. Brassica Vegetables Cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and kale all contain plant compounds called indoles that help reduce the risk of cancer. In addition to a stunning range of vitamins and minerals, they also contain sulforaphane, an important plant chemical that helps the body detoxify health-damaging chemicals.

8. Apples
Not only do they keep the doctor away, they also appear to do the same for lung cancer, diabetes and asthma. An apple contains five grams of fiber and a rich blend of nutrients including the bone-building vitamin K and the anti-inflammatory nutrient quercetin. And there's no better way to control your appetite than an apple eaten about half an hour before a big meal.

9. Onions and Garlic
In an impressive number of published studies, the consumption of onions and garlic has demonstrated protective effects against stomach, prostate and esophageal cancer. Along with broccoli, tea and apples, onions and garlic are among a select group of foods found to reduce mortality from heart disease by 20%.

10. Pomegranate Juice
Called "a natural Viagra" by researchers at Tel Aviv University , pomegranate juice is loaded with antioxidants. Studies show it can reduce blood pressure and plaque in the arteries. New research indicates it also slows the progression of tumors.. Four to eight ounces a day is highly recommended.

11. Green Tea
Though all teas are great for you, green tea has a unique profile of plant chemicals that have anti-cancer activity. It's now fairly established that green tea may help prevent the following types of cancers in humans: bladder, colon, esophagus, pancreas, rectum and stomach. If that's not enough, it also appears to help with weight control.

Masskara Festival 2009 - Bacolod City

Our city, Bacolod, is known for it's yearly Masskara Festival. The highlight is always on the 19th and 2oth of October. However, businessmen and other people who would like to sell would usually start a week before and few days after in order to earn more. Many tourists are coming on this occasion and to gaze this competition.

Bacolod city, is known as the cleanest and greenest highly urbanized city in the Phil. People from different countries, and places would love to visit our city. Though it's quite small but it has beautiful hotels, fascinating nearby resorts and beaches, as well as falls that after seeing the Masskara Festival they would visit these quite places to relax and keep moving the next few days. Modesty aside, I love our city because you don't need to travel far and see the falls, beaches and resorts.

Masskara is the highlight of all. Many tourists are attracted to it and visit the place every year just to see the competition. This group above has been winning for more years already and no group could ever defeat them. They would take time to practice and spend much in their costumes as well. The barangay captain who is the head of the community in the barangay would really give their best in this special occasion. They were undefeated. Try to look at them and see for yourself. They really deserve the 1st prize for many successive years of competition.

The Dancing Porters _ Bacolod City

I'm glad to share something about our porters in Bacolod City, Phil. These are the dancers that would make your day great before entering our city via Negros Navigation, the ship going to different places in the Phil. You will be amazed when they dance and how they perform, they really do it with gusto.

You can travel by ship anywhere in the Phil. since our country is covered by waters. You will enjoy the scenery of the ocean and the flying fish is at your glance especially when you travel during the day, then we reach Bacolod City, you will be entertained by our dancers before they carry your bags, or any luggage you brought with you. This is their source of income as well, they worked hard for their family and be trained to dance for all the passengers. It's nice, right? It's indeed a joyful moment for all the passengers and most of them enjoyed watching them while dancing.

My Son's 7th Birthday

AJ turned 7 yesterday. We enjoyed  celebrating with him. He was anxious at first because most of his friends did not come due to some circumstances that is beyond control. Anyway, we did something. AJ ang his Papa went to our neighbors before and invited them to come so that AJ could have a small party. I already cooked and we need visitors to eat, lol! So the party began.

AJ was so excited seeing his friends around. He enjoyed playing with friends. And we are glad that some of our friends came although they came late but we were happy seeing them. AJ got a lot of gifts like a small car, a box with a lot of gifts in it, some amount, biscuits and most especially his favorite Ferrero Rocher chocolate. He loves it especially his kuya, lol!

AJ had a lot of fun. After eating they played outside and enjoyed the fun together. They seldom visit us so they had fun and fellowship.

Healthy Food

I love fruits of any kind, vegies and food for health. These vegies are rich in vitamins especially for the eyes. I always encourage my kiddos to eat a lot of vegies and fruits as well to maintain good health. To keep healthy is to be wealthy not financially but physically. If a person is physically fir he or she can do a lot of things without any hassles. Living healthy is always the goal of everyone I believe. So why not start now? Start eating healthy food. You will live longer and stay healthy with a smile on your face at all times.

Enjoy eating healthy this year and you will see the result. Be the best and hope for the best to everyone this 2010 and onwards...
