How to Teach Children Food Safety

We all know that kids love messing about in the kitchen whilst getting as messy as possible. Whether it be helping to bake their own masterpiece or making something simple for their own lunch, one of the first and most important things (aside from making sure they have loads of fun, enjoy the experience and learn new skills) is to teach them all about the bugs and nasties they can pick up along the way if they are not careful with hygiene.

Perhaps the first step of the fascinating family food frolic could be a fun trip to the supermarket. Get your little darlings to choose what they would like to make and take note of everything they need to make it. Then it’s off you all go in search of the chosen ingredients for your budding chefettes to get cracking with and you are ready for the serious stuff to begin.

Fun steps to teaching kids the food hygiene rules:

How to Sweeten Your Smoothie Naturally to Keep it Healthy

Most of us, if not all of us, like something that is sweet, a little tasty and appealing. In fact, even when it comes to green smoothies, we would like to add something that makes our drink a little bit tasty and enjoyable. However, while this can be good, using processed sugar could prove to be detrimental and only work to undo the healthy benefits you want to get from your drink.

It’s possible to sweeten your smoothie naturally by adding some healthy sweeteners to the blender as you mix your ingredients. Doing so will help you stay away from health problems such as liver dysfunction, diabetes, high cholesterol levels and weight gain among others. It’s true that some green smoothies can be a bit flat and unappealing to the taste but don’t turn to sweeteners and sugar while you could use natural, healthy substitutes. Here are some of the substitutes which are lower in fructose and also rich in minerals and vitamins.

How to Maximize Weight Loss with Sleep

Even in sleep, the body burns 0.42 calories per pound per hour. That means a person weighing 150 pounds burns 63 calories per hour. That equates to 504 calories after 8 hours of sleep. In comparison, jogging for an hour consumes 398 calories for a person of the same weight.

We burn off calories even when we sleep because our body does not stop working—just to keep us alive.

It might seem counter-intuitive because we often associate weight loss weight energy-expending activities—not sleeping. Surprisingly, we don’t just burn calories during sleep. A good sleep can also help us increase the rate of weight loss and stave off the adverse effect of losing weight.

Here are some things you can do to maximize weight loss with sleep:

#1 Eat protein before sleeping

Beating Arthritis and Keeping Active

When our body is in tip-top shape it’s easy for us to exercise. It’s something we enjoy doing. But when we encounter actual physical barriers in our movements, as in the case of arthritis, exercising to keep fit and lose weight can become much harder.

One of the most common forms of this is arthritis. While it is largely thought of as an elderly person's problem, arthritis can strike much younger. Anyone who has dealt with the condition will know just how hard even the simplest activity becomes.

Below are 10 tips for beating arthritis and making sure you keep active and healthy at all stages of life.

1. Warm up

Completing a thorough pre-routine warm-up prior to your workout will make your exercise session much less painful and much more enjoyable. Warming up improves the flexibility of your muscles and the connective tissues that support your joints—the better they move, the less stiffness you’ll experience. A light five-minute walk or bike ride will get you started on the right foot.

2. Hit the pool

Bad Posture and the Best Ways to Correct It

 

What defines a healthy lifestyle? Is it solely the food that you eat or the frequent exercise that you do? The truth is, there is more to it than those two. There are no hard or fast rules, but there are lots of different factors to consider.

Keeping up with being healthy entails tons of discipline in all aspects of your everyday routine. With your balanced diet and choice of workout, you have to observe the proper use of your body. I am talking about good posture.

Most of us, if not all of us, are too busy going about our busy day to even think about posture. I never thought about it myself. I would just go on waking up, finishing work and going home without the slightest thought of how I stand; until I started streaming and watching exercise videos from which I learned a lot on the subject of keeping a good posture.

While we almost all neglect keeping good posture, we do not notice how important it is to our well-being. We do not realize how beneficial it is to improve our posture. Most importantly, we forget that good posture can boost our overall confidence and self-esteem too.

The Ultimate < $200 Diet Plan

If you take a look at the present market, things are not getting better for people who want to stay healthy. The junk food has more than just accessible prices. This makes it easier for us to cheat on our healthy diet. Whenever we are on the go, it seems easier to grab fast food and see not much of a difference in our wallets. However, a healthy diet at a reasonable price is not an impossible mission. You need to plan it ahead and avoid buying food on the go. And you need to play it smart. Today, we’ll see how the ultimate diet plan under $200 really looks like.

1. Bulk is Better

So, to be able to run the whole ultimate diet plan perfectly, you need to plan and go shopping for an entire week of groceries. This approach might seem daunting. You don’t know what you want to eat today, let alone for five days in advance. However, you can think in broad terms. You will need a light breakfast to keep you up and running for a day, a dinner with meat and/or side dish, and healthy snacks to keep the hunger between meals as far away as possible.
