FOOD IS NOT A TROPHY

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Ever think, I deserve a brownie for that? Many women aren't comfortable tooting their own horn; eating is a quiet celebration. But the pleasure is fleeting and often followed by guilt and stress, which can trigger cravings and weight gain.

Pick a reward that will still seem like a prize the next day, such as putting money in your vacation fund.

HAPPY DAYS

Friday, June 03, 2011

Remember how you felt in the summer as a kid - joyfully unself-conscious and liberated from adult rules? Recapture that special sense of wonder and savor it this season: Every day the sun shines, get out and do something that exhilarates you.

Eating a half cup of baby carrots (one serving) a day can help give your skin a sun-kissed appearance that people perceive as healthier, finds a study from the University of Nottingham. Apparently, carotenoids-the nutrients that lend carrots and red peppers their tint-make your complexion glow. It's a 40-calorie skin treat!

GRAB SOME SUPERFRUIT

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

The USDA recommends that you eat about 2 cups of fresh fruit per day. These summer berries are packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber and are delicious in smoothies, mixed with yogurt and sprinkled over cereal:

BLUEBERRIES: Half a cup of these berries will get you about 18% of your daily vitamin K, a vitamin that helps keep bones healhy & strong.

STRAWBERRIES: Just half a cup of strawberries contains 40% of your daily vitamin C needs. Not only does vitamin C boost your immune system, but it helps to maintain strong bones, teeth and cartilage.

RASPBERRIES: These are a rich source of manganese, a mineral that helps guard against anemia and PMS symptoms. A half-cup of raspberries contains roughly 20% of your daily manganese needs.

BLACKBERRIES: A half-cup of blackberries will supply nearly 20% of your daily fiber needs. Dietary fiber helps control weight by making you feel full longer, and may also reduce your risk for heart problems.
