|The 5 Healthiest Winter Vegetables and Fruits|
The problem with beets is that many people avoid them because they think they are high in sugar. However, that really isn’t so: One raw beet has 5.5 grams for 35 calories. Plus they are a good source of magnesium and calcium (both important for bone health), iron (which you need for energy and to prevent and hair loss), fiber (to help to fill you up), and folic acid (necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in our bodies, and especially important for pregnant woman). Beets are especially important during the winter because they have a unique source of phytonutrients, called betalains, which provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support to help keep your immune system strong.
#2 Brussels sprouts
A member of the cabbage family, Brussels sprouts have seen a recent rise in popularity, and that's a good thing. (I wonder what took everyone so long—I love them!) They are an excellent source of bone-strengthening vitamin K and may give you a glow thanks to the vitamin C, which supports collagen production and products against free radicals. A cup also provides 15 percent of your daily iron and 13 percent of your recommended fiber.
Ever since we were told to load our plates with color, white foods have been getting a bad rap. Cauliflower doesn’t deserve it. It is an excellent source of folic acid and vitamins C and K, and also contains lots of iron, fiber, potassium for efficient muscle function, and B vitamins, which play a role in everything from hair growth to red blood cell creation to carrying oxygen and nutrients to cells of our body.
I know the winter season is upon us when I see the boxes of clementines, a cross between a mandarin and an orange, in the supermarket. So easy to peel, they make the easiest grab-and-go citrus fruit this time of year. Besides being a excellent source of vitamin C, they also contain calcium and potassium, and are a great low calorie fruit: a serving of two clementines is only 80 calories.
I think pears are an overlooked fruit, with so many more people grabbing apples at this time of year. One of the highest-fiber fruits, a medium pear offers about 6 grams, which can help with blood sugar control and promote weight loss. An excellent source of vitamins C and K, pears are also packed with B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and manganese.
Unfortunately during this time of year with everyone being so busy with holiday parties, events, and shopping, a lot of people are not eating enough fruits and veggies at all. When on the run, one option is a small Jamba Juice smoothie. I like the sixteen-ounce Berry UpBeet, which combines fruits and veggies, including beets.
|5 Foods to Detox Your Body|
Sick of feeling sluggish, tired, and bloated? Want to get that hot bod into pristine shape? Well, a detox might be for you, says author and chef Candice Kumai. If you're not ready to fully commit to a detox yet, you can still try to modify your diet to help. Try cutting carbs, alcohol, dairy, sugar, and caffeine from your current diet, and start adding in these top five foods to feel completely renewed:
The polyphenols in tea leaves help to detoxify the body naturally, while popular herbal "detox" teas contain a blend of herbs with special detoxification and cleansing properties. Herbal and detoxification teas don't usually tend to carry caffeine.
A natural diuretic that is used to help expel excess fluids in the body, cabbage is made up of approximately 92 percent water. You'd probably burn more calories chewing cabbage than anything else. It's also known for being a perfect source of many dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins, including C, K, E, A, and folic acid.
Ahhh yes, the superfood of the century, not to mention the one that you don't want to consume on your first or second hot date. So exclude garlic for dating, but include it for a great slammin' detox. Garlic can also help to lower your bad cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease and also help to de-stress.
# 4 Greens
The chlorophyll in these plant-based foods will rid the body of harmful environmental toxins, as well as aid the liver in detoxification. A blood cleanser and natural antibiotic, it also reduces blood fats, thinning the blood and lowering blood pressure.
Are you surprised? Don't be afraid to down a few cups in the morning, through the day, before any meal, and of course, during and after a workout. Water will help to flush your kidneys and liver and also hydrate your body from head to toe. Plus, it's free! Here's to a happy and healthy new, cleansed you!

2. The best, and only, herbs you should dry are fresh herbs. Remove any yellowed, dried or otherwise unhealthy looking leaves.
3. Clean your herbs before drying them. Run the stems under cool, running water, removing any dirt or bugs, and pat dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Herbs should be totally, completely dry before you start the drying process.
Method: Tie 5-8 stems together in a bundle, and place bundle in a paper bag, stems extending out from the opening. Hang the bag in a dark, warm place with good air circulation. The temperature should be about 70-80 degrees F. Let dry for two to four weeks, checking periodically to make sure the bundle hasn’t come loose.
Method: Remove stalks and stems. Handle leaves gently, and cut large leaves into small pieces. Place on a drying tray, old window screen or baking sheet. If you’re stacking trays, place a spacer in between each try so the herbs have air circulation. Place in a warm, dark area and stir daily until thoroughly dried.
Method: This works best for gas ovens. On a baking sheet, arrange individual leaves so that no leaves are touching. If you have enough for more layers, place a paper towel between each. Do not turn on the oven. Leave overnight.
Getting adequate protein is quite important for the ovum production. Meat is a rich source of protein, but chicken is always a better option as compared to red meat because it is low in fat. Women need approximately 45 grams of protein every day.
It is advisable not to have above the prescribed limit. According to Dr. Zita West, high protein diet is not good, especially before the pregnancy. This is because excessive protein will produce ammonia, which might interfere with the implantation of the embryo.
It is usually suggested to consume plant proteins (from tofu, seeds, nuts and beans) as they are a source of healthy fats. Moreover, they are low in calories, which is helpful to keep your weight under check. A body mass index of 18.5 – 24 is good for fertility.
Mangoes, carrots, apricots and peaches contain beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A by the body. This helps in the production of female sex-hormones that are important for ovulation.
Water is quite important for the reproductive system, as it plumps egg follicles and also improves the supply of blood to the lining of the womb. In case of dehydration, the cervical fluid, which helps the sperm locate the egg, also becomes lethargic. Therefore, drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. You can also mix a dash of lime or fruit juice with water.
According to a fertility study conducted by the Harvard University, women who include full-fat dairy (one serving) per day reduce the infertility risk by almost a quarter. The fat in the dairy is believed to improve ovarian function. While trying to conceive, you can include full-fat dairy foods in your diet, instead of low-fat ones. Also, try to drink a glass of milk every day.
Seeds, Nuts and Oily fish
These foods are a rich source of essential fatty acids (EFA), which are quite important for healthy ovulation. Currently, about eight in ten women have EFA deficiency. Therefore, it is important for women to include about 30 grams of seeds and nuts every day. You can relish them either as a snack or garnish your cereal with nuts or add them to salad. In addition, include oily fish in your diet (about 300 grams or approximately two portions a week).
