One of my New Year goals (yes I do have some more) for 2015 is to improve my health, look after yours truly a bit better and maybe along the way inspire all of my loved ones to join in.
Keeping reasonably healthy is so difficult these days. To begin with there's the time issue, you know we're always too busy to set aside a few minutes a day to do some exercise, especially after a long day's slog. Then there's the problem of attempting to eat healthy. Yet again there's the time issue around cooking dinner and then there is the ease of all the fast food you can just buy. Alas those fast foods are also a fast way to damage your health and ending up on the long list of people who are considered obese.
So I knew I had to do something about it so I made up my mind that the easiest point to begin at in my search for a better me was to head over to Amazon .com. The choice thing about Amazon is that it is so convenient to look for the relevant stuff you want. I typed in 'improve my health' and huge lists of results appeared. I narrowed my search down to 'healthy food to eat' and that's how I discovered this eBook 'Great Food Great Health' by Jennifer Daniels.
I have found this book extremely beneficial. What I love about it is that it is easy to understand, covers food that is readily available to access and each explanation of a particular food item is laid out in exactly the same way. The book covers a wide range of food, 10 types of fruit, 10 types of greens, five types of meats, 10 scrummy snacks, and even healthy desserts. As well as all of this there are also some helpful dieting and exercise ideas which are easy to implement.
For every food item Jennifer Daniels gives the following information:
The way the foods are broken up into these sections makes the book very easy to follow and it makes the idea of eating healthy a whole lot more easier.

Click on the link below and head over to Amazon.com to get your edition of this great little eBook. I'm sure you will not be let down and let me know your thoughts. In conclusion paraphrasing the last sentence from Great Food Great Health I wish you all the best in creating and maintaining a healthy you.
We are saturated almost on a daily basis about the growing obesity problem and the need for each and every one of us to take control of our health. There are so many diet products and so many exercise regimes and equipment out there, every one of them promising to produce a new better you that it is confusing as to what you should follow.
On top of that there are confusing messages; one specialist is saying this food is good but another specialist is saying that this exact same food is bad.
Is it any wonder we are so mixed-up that we end being paralyzed by inertia because it seems that no matter what option we take it will be wrong or it will soon be shown to be wrong.
Jennifer Daniels' book doesn't examine new super foods and incredible health fads, it doesn't market new exercise machines that will make sure you lose 50lbs in a fortnight doing 5 minutes of exercise three times a week. This book is about food that is easily available and details their nutritional value, how food can help you, what portions of it you should consume, and ways to prepare it without having to be a master chef.
You may never look at Brussels sprouts the same after reading this book:
Health Benefits: Thanks to Brussels sprouts being packed with vitamin B in the form of folic acid they are great for pregnant women because folic acid helps in protecting against neural tube problems in infants, just like oranges. Brussels sprouts also have potassium and omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and vitamin C and vitamin K which means they are great for battling cancer and heart disease.
Meal Portions: A serving portion is about four to five Brussels sprouts. One serving per day is enough.
Serving Ideas: As a young guy this was my most unfavorite veggie even coming in behind silver beat which was pretty yuck as well. I think it was something to do with the way my parents cooked them. They use to just boil them whole and then we would try to chew our way through them, and they weren’t nice.
But this easy recipe makes Brussels sprouts a whole lot more appetizing and it only takes around 20 minutes. Firstly slice the Brussels sprouts in half and lay them out on an oven tray. Second coat them with one tablespoon of olive oil and then put them in the oven which should be preheated to 500 F. Roast them until they are golden brown, flipping them once. Divinely scrumptious!
Interesting Fact: Although a vegetable, Brussels sprouts are surprisingly rich in protein which is 25% of the Brussels sprout's calories. This means that they are a yummy substitute for meat if mixed with grains to provide the whole range of amino acids that meat has, with the added plus that they won’t fill you out like meat does.
Jennifer also gives easy to understand hints for helping you to use great eating strategies to meet your health goals and exercising ideas that won't cost a fortune or take up too much of your day. The harder dieting and exercising is the less chance there is of succeeding so Jennifer Daniels details a journey of minimal difficulty resulting in a better you.
