Health Tips for an active lifestyle

Aloha! Hauoli Makahiki Hou!
Start your 2018 with a healthy new regimen of foods that are most beneficial to the human body while also being the least harmful to animals and mother earth. These are a few of my favorite things….
Best Vegetarian Protein sources: 
Chia, Hempseed, Spirulina, Quinoa, Hummus, Ezekiel Bread, Rice and Beans, Buckwheat
 
Increasing the amount of cruciferous vegetables in your diet, which include broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, rids the body of excess estrogen, thus increasing testosterone, helping the body to more easily build muscle and keep a healthy sex life in both men and women. 
Here is list of the cruciferous vegetables:
  • Arugula.
  • Bok Choy.
  • Broccoli.
  • Brussel Sprouts.
  • Cabbage.
  • Cauliflower.
  • Collard Greens.
  • Kale
‘Bad Nuts’
Almonds, Peanuts and Walnuts are testosterone inhabitants. Not good for men and women on a regular basis. Especially those who have a lifestyle that includes regular workouts.
 
‘Good Nuts’ 
Macadamia Nuts, Brazil Nuts and Pumpkin Seeds assist in testosterone production and have the most health benefits for the human body. Macadamia Nuts are the ONLY completely alkaline nuts therefore they are the most balanced and easiest to absorb for the human body.
