Good Health is a Horse Race

Achieving a higher state of health is really not so difficult. We can all identify something in our life that could be modified to improve our health. Many of us might have defined a New Year’s Resolution that includes the reduction of a bad habit, or the introduction of a good habit. Whatever it is, I tend to recommend you don't think in terms of "cold-turkey", but instead, think in terms of "degrees". Your odds are greater for long-term success if you set a path of modest steps instead of big leaps when you begin to make changes.

Want to remember your Christmas list without checking it twice? Then make sure you are getting enough choline, the precursor to the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, and imperative to healthy function of the brain and central nervous system.

Flourless Chocolate Quinoa Cake & Cupcakes

Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is often referred to as a grain although other sources classify it as a seed. Botanically it is the fruit of a broadleaf plant in the same family as spinach and beets.

What's great about quinoa?

Quinoa is rich in potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and contains more iron than any other grain. It contains 50% more protein than other grains. (As a percentage of total calories, 12% to 18% of the calories in quinoa come from protein.) Unlike corn, wheat, and most other grains, which are missing the amino acid lysine, making their protein incomplete, quinoa is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids. The World Health Organization rates quinoa’s protein quality on a par with that of milk.
