LifeChaotic. surprising. breathtaking.
Some days, life comes at you from every direction. Stress at work, expectations at home, and little time to just kick back, close your eyes and relax. To maintain balance (and sanity) in your life, you need a balanced nutritional diet. A diet loaded with the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids to support your lifestyle—no matter how crazy and hectic it is. A healthy diet doesn’t have to be hard or take extra time. The key is to be smart about your choices.
For instance, next time you’re pushing a cart down the grocery aisle, think color. Vibrant, rich color. Red, for example. Did you know that the brilliant reds that make a slice of watermelon mouthwatering or a vine-ripened tomato luscious come from lycopene, an antioxidant that may help protect against heart disease and cancer? Plus when you add a bit of fat, say a drizzle of olive oil and some crumbled feta to that tomato, the body absorbs the lycopene more efficiently. Talk about healthy and delicious—and easy!
Or think blue—as in blueberries, Concord grapes or even deep purple eggplants. That blue comes from another antioxidant that some studies show may not only fight free radicals, but may even make your brain work better. Smarter diet. Smarter brain. And a balanced diet to boot. Who can argue with that?
