Body Health Affects Mind Health – Foods for Thought

Ready to Regain Your Health and Pursue Wellness?

For the many years that I considered healthy eating as only about dietary strictness and abnormally thin bodies, I didn’t know the kind of fun I was missing. In fact, it is not just about fun. Healthy foods affect your body and bring improved appearance, good mood and overall health.

For me, it has been a learning experience with difficulties. From confusion caused by so many food alternatives to unwillingness to cut on your sweet foods, be ready to endure a bit of suffering that is craving as you start your journey to a healthy body.

How does eating healthy enhance your health?

Research has shown that processed and packaged food is associated with high rates of bipolar disorder, stress, anxiety and depression. Such food may even cause diseases that are more serious including schizophrenia, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease.

Crazy, right!?

What are we doing to our bodies?

Take Charge of Your Meals

Once you realize how wonderfully healthy foods affect your body… and decide to try it… you will need to create a diet plan. When I was creating mine 5 years ago, I knew I had to feel good and look great. On advice from my favorite workmate, I decided to start preparing more of my own meals. This way, it is easier for me to monitor what I eat.

Importance of Dealing with Negative Energies

Have you ever struggled with a certain problem in your life and the solutions didn’t come, no matter how much you tried? In most cases, it’s because the negative influences are still intact. Sometimes, the influences are so strong that you must lay down a strategy.

Foods That Improve Your Brain and Your Work Ethic

Sometimes we just need to feel smarter. That’s achieved by actually being smarter! One of the smartest things I know of is to eat healthy, for your brain and your body.

Try these brain foods to help keep it healthy:

Cocoa beans are the base of chocolate, long before the sugar and milk. It’s been known for centuries that cocoa improves brain function, promotes cognitive skills and helps make a positive mood. It is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and other components that significantly improve brain function.

Raisins, hazelnuts, almonds, dried apricots all contain boron, which greatly improves hand-eye coordination, memory and attention span. Feel free to make a delicious mixture of these.

… which is exactly what I do ever day.  I’m addicted to the above foods.  Every day I sit down to the computer to do my work as an entrepreneur, whether it’s building local lead generation properties, which I learned from the stellar guys at (check ’em out!), talking to business owners, or writing this blog.  And every day I have an amazing, energy giving mixture of some dried fruits, nuts and dark chocolate.

This gives me physical energy and mental energy, not to mention keeps me focused just by the sheer fact that I have something delicious to eat.  That act helps me focus even more than all these nutrients and antioxidants; those are just an added benefit.

Hey, it’s better than chowing down on Doritos! Which I used to do. And which are neither a good brain food nor a good body food.

Let’s get back to it, shall we?

Six Foods You Should Eat For Better Concentration And Focus

Focus and concentration are crucial components of a productive life, both in the short term and in the long term. Scientists have proven that food affects your memory, ability to focus, mental clarity and mood.

You’re probably looking to improve all of these, right? Maybe you should consider healthy eating to make you feel better and have a sharp mind.

Here are some incredible foods to eat more often…

1. Leafy Green Vegetables — My fave! Because of their rich carotenoid and antioxidant properties, these foods are known to boost brainpower. After eating these foods religiously for six months, three times a week, I have seen my memory improve. My Doc tells me that this is because leafy green vegetables are rich in vitamin B.

2. Water — The reason I include water here is that without it, your brain would be devoid of electrical energy. Water is the engine behind all the activities that take place in the brain. Try it and you will discover one thing: the more water you take the more creative and clearer your mind becomes. Since every function in the body depends on water, you will also realize that your overall well being will also improve because water is a component of healthy eating to make you feel better.

3. Dark Chocolate — I used to be a fan of the milky and sugary chocolate until I discovered the power of dark chocolate. If you want to be more focused on your daily tasks, I would recommend you include this chocolate in your list of daily snacks. Its small amount of caffeine is enough to enhance your alertness for several hours.

I know how stressful office environments can sometimes turn out to be. One of the best ways to de-stress is chow down on the dark chocolate. Its magnesium content promotes the release of serotonin and endorphins, which are feel-good hormones.

Welcome to Delicious Success

I’m here to tell you how to live a life of success.

My name’s Janine, and it’s time you see what I mean.

Now, you may be thinking, “oh bother, not another guru who’s going to tell us what to do and how to live our lives.  Not someone else who knows it all.  Please don’t force THAT down our throats. We don’t wanna eat it.”

I don’t blame you.

But I only want to serve what’s been created and tested in my kitchen to perfection.  If it’s not suitable for Wolfgang Puck, then it’s not suitable for you.

Puck, by the way, is wildly successful.

Any way, the premise of this blog is, you can’t and won’t become successful by eating junk and food that’s bad for you.  It just won’t happen.  It tears you up

Now I’m not saying that simply eating wholesome foods that nourish the body instead of destroy it will make you successful all by itself.  You still have a mind and you have to use it.

The mind is what steers your life.  But the vessel doesn’t work if it’s not fed properly.  And this affects the steering.

You have control of where you want to go and pretty much how you get there. That’s the magical thing called the mind. And how do you feed the mind?  We’ll get into nootropics at some point in this blog, but mainly you feed your mind by putting positive stuff in.

If you want to be an excellent cook, you hang out with other excellent cooks, not downers and not amateurs.

If you want to be healthy you eat healthy foods. And work out.

If you want to be successful as a mother you learn everything you can about great, exceptional parenting and hang out with other superb mothers.

If you want to be successful and rich, you hang out with other successful, rich people.

So my hope is to combine great, healthy food with positive upward momentum for a healthy, exceptional life.

Bring a fork, a knife, dig in and enjoy. And of course, cooks need feedback, so let me know how you like the taste of my dishes, please!
