Simple Workouts Are Often the Best

I wholeheartedly believe that weight bearing exercise is vitally important for everyone baring a real medical condition. I don’t know how it has come to it that many women feel that they shouldn’t pick up heavy (for them) objects. Weight bearing is probably the single best thing you can do for bone health.

An OMEGA-3 Breakfast of Champions

Walnuts, Macadamias and flax seeds are great sources of plant based OMEGA-3 fat. OMEGA-3 fats are so important for so many things. Deficiencies in OMEGA-3 fats have been associated with asthma, heart disease and learning deficiencies. OMEGA-3 fats are termed “essential” because your body cannot make it out of other compounds. Thus you must get enough of it in your diet each and every day. If you use good quality eggs you’ll be getting some additional animal based OMEGA-3 fats as well.
