I’ve been eating an average of 2 apples per say for the last 4 months or so and I can attest that not only do I feel great, but my digestive system seems to be on hyperdrive. Apples of course have a great deal of fiber which not only has fat loss properties, but cholesterol lowering capabilities. Apples are also high in insoluble fiber, which is great for your intestines and colon health.

I know that apples can be boring so I often mix things up with my apples. Some days I will put two apples in a protein shake. Other days I’ll just have two apples outright. Some days I will spread peanut butter over slices of apple or raw organic almond butter for a balanced and healthy snack and other days I will dice them and put them in a salad. Whatever you choose, be sure to incorporate apples in your diet as a part of a healthy and nutritious lifestyle.

Eat an Apple a Day and Keep the Doctor Away; Why Apples are so Good for You You’ve all heard that saying before. It may be very true. Let’s look at really how good apples are. You know how delicious they are but did you know they are chemically complex and a great way to help control cholesterol levels?

Rich’s Morrocan Mint Quinoa Salad

The health benefits of quinoa are amazing and the versatility of this seed is equally as amazing. I was trying to find something else to do with my quinoa when I had a bright idea for something interesting. Why not try a cold quinoa dish? I prepared my quinoa and began to just add a few items to it until I came up with something colorful and yummy. This is a great dish for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike.

This is life and we must live it right? Well, when you have tough goals to reduce body fat and fit into those smaller dress sizes then it’s a must that you stick to very strict nutritional guidelines and an exercise routine.

However from time to time we do have guests over for dinner, or we have to take a dish to a dinner party and although you’re the health nut like me that would probably show up with carrot sticks and broccoli, you can still surprise a few people from time to time with a healthier version of a very unhealthy treat.
