Your Amazing Heart 

Every year, your blood travels the equivalent to the moon and back 9 times
It’s easy to forget the hard work your heart does, pumping some 5 litres of blood every minute (at rest). Because the heart has its own electrical impulse, it can continue to beat on its own even when separated from the body, provided it has an oxygen supply – that’s a chilling thought, but does hammer home how autonomous and surprisingly-basic the heart is. All that pumping equates to the blood travelling a whopping 12,000 miles per day – that’s almost half way around the world. To take it even further, the heart will pump blood 4,380,000 miles a year, which is the equivalent to the moon and back 9 times in a single year!
The human body is without doubt the most complex machine that exists, and its magnificence will probably never be exceeded by any man-made object. It’s a work of art, completing millions of microscopic processes every second, processes which have been moulded over the course of billions of years...

The MEDITERRANEAN DIET                                                                                          
In our attempt to find the best diet for health and longevity, the research behind the Mediterranean diet certainly seems to put it in that category. I recently discovered a recipe oriented book with a ton of ideas and even a daily meal planner.  There are a few different variations of the diet and this one allows meat and desserts. It all has to be cooked in a clean and healthy manner, of course.  But, I honestly believe we can enjoy this type of diet and not feel deprived while improving our health.

The book is The Mediterranean Prescription by A. Acquista, M.D. and his first point is to know the difference between the different types of fats.  The goal is to consume unsaturated fat as in olive oil and plant based foods while reducing trans and saturated fats.  Don't worry, it's all spelled out on the package labels and recipes in his book. Many people are staying away from wheat or starch these days, but there are good and bad starches too. Organic whole grain bread, for example, is one of the most healthy foods available. Some studies even correlate how much whole grain products you eat to how long you will live.

In case you are new to the Mediterranean diet, Dr. Acquista lists the 12 guiding principles:
1. Eat lots of fruits.               
2. Eat lots of vegetables.           
3. Eat lots of legumes
4. Eat nuts and seeds        
5. Eat whole grains           
6. Use olive oil on salads and cooking
7. Eat low-fat dairy products in moderation      
8. Eat fish     9. Eat the right fats (have a high
ratio of unsaturated fats to saturated fats)   
10.  Regular physical activity
11. Drink Wine(red)       
12.  Eat small amounts of red meat and meat products.

Most studies say that one daily glass of wine is most beneficial for women and not more. In terms of red meat, I find it easier to just eliminate it altogether. I'm avoiding the saturated fat and the cholesterol because I have a history of strokes in my family.       L.J

When you’re traveling all day or have a long commute, it can be easy to cave in and eat fast food and unhealthy snacks. BUT, if you plan ahead you can make healthy travel decisions! #WorldHeartDay
