What's Really in Your Food??

I Came across this great article today on
Well, maybe I shouldn't go so far as saying it's great, but it makes you think of what you're really eating.
When you look at the ingredients you're putting into your body, try to remember the smaller the list, the more "real" your food is.

We want real food! Natural foods!
We want the nutrients our bodies need!

Did You Know??

Did you know that Dark Chocolate carries Flavonoids?
Which is an antioxidant that is also found in tea, herbal tea, and apples.
Dark Chocolate can also improve blood flow, protects your arteries, prevents blockage of the arteries, and raises levels of good cholesterol!

Best of all for us ladies, research has shown that dark chocolate can enhance your mood and promotes good energy levels.
Along with helping your eye sight as well.
A lot of good benefits I would say.
So how much should we eat??

Serving size-1.5 ounces
sugar-12 grams
sodium-5 mg
fiber-5 grams (which is fantastic!)

So for all you Valentine lovers, choose the DARK!!

Zesty Salad

I actually made this up, but it was so good I couldn't help but share it. One of the fastest recipes, with a lot of color and very healthy for you!

It's a perfect lunch!

Zesty Salad
2 cups of Whole Wheat Noodles
half of red pepper sliced
handful of cut up mini blocks of cheese
handful of sliced up olives
half a tomato sliced
pinch of pepper
half a bag of Mixed Lettuce
Zesty Italian

*Make noodles, and while they're cooking start cutting like you are making a typical salad. When noodles are done, mix them with all your veggies, and poor over some Zesty Italian.
Again, ALWAYS feel free to use whatever veggies, I'm just giving you an idea of what to mix together:).
Also, I didn't measure anything, so of course go by how much you want to make.

Simple, and delicious. I hope you enjoy!
