Quick Reflexology Fact

Toxins are everywhere. The food we eat, the products we clean ourselves with, as well as the air we breathe all contribute to the build up of toxins in our bodies. Without effectively eliminating those toxins from our organs, they will eventually cause havoc and we will be led down the path of sickness and disease. In a society that relies heavily on chemically laden prescription drugs, psychotherapy and surgical procedures to "heal" the sick, it is more than time to put matters into your own hands.

Store fruits and veggies on the top shelf of your refrigerator where you will see them every time you open the fridge. Instead of bringing donuts to that meeting or as a morning office ritual, think about bringing in a container of fruit instead. Don't forget the convenience of juice, pack a single serving can or bottle to drink at lunch or at break time. Make your cereal taste great by putting some berries, sliced bananas or sliced peaches on it.

Make a fruit smoothie or add fruit to your yogurt. You can add veggies to your casseroles, soups or main dishes. Nuts are heart healthy but you need to eat them in moderation so you don't increase your weight. They are high in calorie count, so stick to 1 ounce serving sizes. Some fats are essential to cooking or other food preparations so don't avoid them, understand which are healthier for you.

Unsaturated liquid fats like canola, corn, olive, peanut, safflower, or sesame are the best to use instead of solid fats like margarines, butter, or lard. Avoid eating out at fast food restaurants where you are more likely to be served fried fast foods. If you eat red meat, try substituting fatty fish like salmon and tuna 2 to 3 times per week.
