New Season’s Recall of their Peanut-Contaminated Almond Butter

Fortunately, the company has yet to receive any complaints or reports of illness from the said jars. But the company took the initiative to recall jars with best-by dates ranging from 06/16/2017, 08/15/2017, and 08/30/2017. So far, 19 locations across Oregon, southern Washington State and northern California had distributed the jar. Moreover, the only affected product was the almond butter with UPC Code 4060010401.

5 Astounding Health Benefits of Almond Milk

Eliminating milk as part of our morning beverage and dairy products has been difficult for us at first. But thankfully, there are alternative type of milks that can be used as substitute that are also way healthier meeting our calcium requirements and aids in weight loss contrary to dairy products. One of the best healthy foods we substitute over dairy products is the almond milk.

Almond milk may be dairy-free and contains less calcium, but it contains nutrients and vitamins our body can greatly benefit into. For one, almond milk is a healthy fat richer in omega-3 that aids in weight loss, among others.

In this blog post, you’re about to find out why you should incorporate almond milk to your diet. Here are the top 5 astounding benefits you get from drinking this healthy milk.

1. It helps lower down blood pressure

Almond milk contains the exact same amounts of minerals and vitamins you can find in soy and dairy products. It contains vitamin D and phosphorous that helps promote blood flow circulation and frees the blockage and clog in your veins that cause blood pressure.

What’s great about almond milk is it is naturally soy-free and lactose-free. So it’s safe to consume whether you have an intolerance problem or not.

2. It Lowers Down Your Risk to Heart Disease

It has no cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fats that helps decrease inflammation throughout your body. The omega-3 fatty acids found in almond milk decrease triglycerides (that can damage blood vessels and lead to heart disease and stroke). Aside from that, it contains potassium and magnesium that are good for your brain.

3. It Promotes Bone Growth

Almond milk may not offer much calcium as dairy products do, but it does offer at least 30 percent of your recommended daily intake. Calcium, along with its vitamin D reduces your risk of arthritis and osteoporosis. These two vitamins are known to promote healthy bones and teeth formation.

4. It keeps your skin’s glow

Almond milk contains about 50% of vitamin E and antioxidants that protects your skin from sun’s damage. It also repairs your damaged skin to maintain your natural, youthful glow.

5. It Does Not Impact Your Blood Sugar Level

Lastly, raw, unprocessed, almond milk is very low in carbs and sugar. That’s why we recommend buying this one as it does not spike your blood sugar level. Unlike dairy products that contain lactose (milk’s natural sugar) that contribute to weight gain. Because it is low-glycemic in nature, your body will use the carbs for energy rather than storing them as fats.

5 Ways to Add Veggies in Your Diet Meals

WAYS to ADD VEGGIES in yourDIET MEALS

One of the factors why we are gaining weight is due to the kind of foods we are eating. I know all of us here knew that. Well, blame that to the tempting food shops around you and those owners who aim to catch your attention through the mouth-watering aroma and presentations of their foods. 😜

Anyway, kidding aside. There are actually numerous food stops that serve menus which aren’t even healthy and good for our body, especially those who are vending junk foods. In order to avoid consuming these, you’d better start munching more veggies to become strong and healthy!

To guide you attain your weight loss goal this year, here are 5 ways to add veggies in your diet meals:

1. Determine the nutritional element of the foods

You must take into consideration the nutritional makeup of the foods you’ll be eating e.g. macronutrients (protein, fat, carbs) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals) to attain a balance diet.

If you’ve been eating lots of meats before, make it less these days and increase your vegetable intake instead. If you want to substitute meat with veggies that also consist of same micronutrients such as iron, zinc, calcium and vitamin B12, you can have the following:

(iron) whole grains, white beans, lentils, dried fruit (apricots), dark green leafy veggies (cooked spinach), olives, beans and peas, asparagus, coconut, mushroom and arugula (rocket).

(zinc) spinach, garlic, sesame seeds, cashews, cooked napa cabbage, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon grass, green peas, firewood sprouts, palm hearts, stir fried lentil sprouts, raw winged bean tubers and mushrooms.

(calcium) turnip greens, curly kale, collard greens, arugula, spinach, watercress, broccoli raab (cooked rapini), beet greens, pak choi (Chinese cabbage), okra, spring onions, leeks, cabbage, endive, broccoli, artichokes, brussels sprouts, celery, sweet potato, carrots, lettuce and parsnips.

(vitamin B12) egg, coconut milk, almond milk.

2. Experiment with fruits and veggies per week

Food experimentations can make your diet more enjoyable. It could also improve your cooking skills in making new healthy recipes. In playing out in your kitchen, you can try one veggie, fruit and other plant-based food every week.

3. Mix and match plant-based with other foods

For plant-based foods that consist of protein, we can have soy and quinoa. Since we have limited veggies that are high in protein, you can also mix and match other foods such as rice and beans, chickpeas and lentils and substitute meat with seitan or tofu to get enough protein.

4. Take small steps in substituting meats

It doesn’t mean that when you’re in a diet, you will totally remove the stocked meats in your fridge. Just simply take small steps a day until you become used to eating veggies without craving for juicy meats.

It’s also effective to create a diet meal schedule wherein you can decide to eat meat on Tuesdays and Thursdays only and skip the other days until you decide to eat it once a week or mix a small slice of meat with your veggie meal recipes.

5.  Plan ahead of time on what to eat

Make it a habit to plan your veggie recipes on weekends so you can buy the ingredients ahead of time to avoid ending up ordering unhealthy and processed foods due to your hectic schedule. If you want, you can also have a huge bowl of veggie salad divided into 3 servings, for your breakfast, lunch and dinner during Monday, Wednesday or Friday. It depends to which schedule you prefer the most that can make you feel comfortable at the same time, satisfied.

When you’re on a diet, learn to love veggies, because it’s said to be the easiest way of obtaining more antioxidants and fiber which are absolutely beneficial for your diet.
