Can a handful of almonds a day keep the doctor away? Research shows that almonds can help you maintain a healthy weight, improve cholesterol levels and promote heart health, and help stabilize blood glucose levels. For health benefits, it’s important to watch your portion of almonds—23 almonds is one serving. Here are some ways to enjoy a serving of almonds a day:

■Grab a handful of raw or roasted, lightly salted almonds for a snack.
■Enjoy almond butter on an apple, banana, or whole grain crackers.
■Sprinkle sliced almonds on your favorite whole grain cereal or oatmeal.
■Top low-fat yogurt with fresh or frozen berries and almonds.
■Make “nut crumbs” by coarsely grinding in a food processor and use as a topping for casseroles or rice dishes.

this is what I know personally or have read:
I took Fosamax for almost a decade and EVERY year my bone mass decreased I say again my bone mass decreased..Fosamax did not increase my bone mass nor protect against fractures as it is touted to do.

While most of my medical people said for me to stay on it one brave Nurse encouraged me to get off it and mentioned health issues with long term usage.

Some history on Fosamax...it was approved for treatment of osteoporosis in 1995. I was put on it then. Merck, the manufacture encourages users to stay on it for years but with increased evidence of problems and they didnt know what the long term effects would be it was ONLY suppose to be used for 5 years.

Research has linked long term use of Fosamax with an increased risk of several serious health problems including an increase in the occurrence of fractures in several bones & joints, causing decay of the jawbone, hip, shoulder, thigh-bone and knee. It has been linked to an increase risk of femur fractures. www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/04/0804
28162542.htm

A connection between Fosamax and other bisphosphonates and a serious bone disease called Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ) was found and this finding was published in the Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and prompted the FDA and Merik to issue a warning to health care providers in September of 2004.

Here is another health concern: Women who have used Fosamax are nearly twice as likely to develop the most common kind of chronically irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) than are those who have never used it, according to research from Group Health and the University of Washington.

This is enough evidence and concern for me...that is why I will not take it or any of their drugs...supplements, physical therapy, exercise, diet yes ...drugs No.

an egg a day is okay...."Foods high in saturated fat can increase cholesterol more than foods high in cholesterol, like eggs," One large egg contains 186 mg cholesterol but only 1.6 grams (g) of saturated fat. ..and saturated fat is much worse than dietary cholesterol for us.!

Shut off the tv about 30 minutes earlier than usual and use that time to prepare for bed & the morning.....you will sleep better and awaken and not be rushed in the morning.

"The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, a brain surgeon." - Robert Cormier, novelist.


Practicing is a way to make a routine just that a routine and is a good thing. however, It is good that we don't have to "get it right" the first time in many things....gardening, exercising, painting, etc. ...even music...thats why we Practice ...as in music lessons, baseball, running, etc.
Heck even Doctors are in a practice...Practicing Medicine...uh...better not go there emoticon

Remember that the shape of natural foods is an indicator of what they are good for...carrot slices look like the eye...which they are good for, walnuts look like brains which they are good for... kidney beans for the kidneys....anyone else want to chime in here with other foods that are good for you?

My tip is to eat the fruit instead of the juice for more nutrients and less calories....
secondly make fruits and veggies your "sweeties" and not the man made ones..
As Zonya would say, Farm or Laboratory...where does your food come from!
