November Healthy New You Giveaway


With the coming of the holidays, many of us are starting to feel self conscious about our bodies. While many of us start the year with fantastic goals, we usually lose track and forget about our weight loss or healthy living journey. How can it be November and we are still struggling with our weight? Rather than waiting for New Years Day to make a new resolution, you may want to consider starting a new healthy lifestyle today. Many of us make excuses with the holidays starting, but it is actually the perfect time to start a new lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise. Knowing that many people are having the same struggle, Susan of Budget Earth has decided to start her new lifestyle as of November 1.  Knowing that many people are having the same struggle as her, Susan has devoted the month of November to helping teach others about healthy living and how all of us can work together to feel confident about ourselves.

To help jumpstart our new healthy lifestyle, Pure Health & Genesis Today decided to work together with Budget Earth to create the November Healthy New You Giveaway.

Red Wine And Cholesterol



As you know, I have been looking for ways to lower my total and LDL cholesterol. This past spring, I was having meatless meals 2 to 3 days a week. However, I have been naughty and kind of fell off of the wagon.  Starting in November, I will be back on my 3 days of meatless meals a week and I will add 4 ounces of red wine for dinner.

I'm going French


The "French Paradox" is the term that refers to the fact that French people have less heart attacks than people living in the US, but consume a diet higher in saturated fats.  This may be due to the amount of red wine they drink on a daily basis.

Red wine is shown to be high in resveratrol, an antioxidant that helps to increase HDL or the good cholesterol. You can read more about it by clicking the resveratrol link. Most doctors do not like to tell their patients to drink wine because it can be abused. All you need is 4 ounces(118.29ml) a day if you are a woman and men can have two 4 ounce(236ml) servings.

I'm not a red wine drinker so this will be my great experiment for the month of November.  I have a wine company I love and that is Matanzas Creek winery and I heart their  Sauvignon Blanc. There is a 2005 vintage in my wine cellar. I need to go online and order a couple of bottles of their red wine stat.

Are you a white or red wine drinker? Should I get a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon? Would you drink 4 ounces a day in order to increase your HDL cholesterol?

Kale Salads To Lower Cholesterol


image

I'm almost finished with eating the kale that is growing in my garden.  My kale plants have really stopped growing since the weather turned cold in Chicago this week.  I'm going to miss eating kale salad everyday for lunch or dinner. See all the weeds growing in my garden, I got really lazy about pulling weeds last month.  Next year, I will be growing 4 to 5 kale plants instead of two plants.

Why do I love Kale? Read kale versus collards to see why.  Since I have been trying to lower my cholesterol, I have been having meatless meals at least two days out of the week.  I was doing three but I kind of fell off of the wagon.  In the month of November, I might pick that up again since the holidays are upon us.

Below are some of my kale salads using the vegetables in my garden. I grew broccoli, bell peppers, tomatoes, Swiss chard, and collard greens.

Kale, tomatoes, and walnuts

Do you eat kale and if so how do you cook it? Do you make kale salads?  What are the things do you add to your kale salad?
