The Basics of Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss...

When we were younger, mom always told us to eat healthy and that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. However, in these times, breakfast is always overtaken time the time crunch. It seems no one has time to eat a healthy breakfast so many of use just grab a cup of java and go. However, it seems that some people who are really fit are doing something mom definitely would not approve. Not only are they not eating breakfast but they are not eating at all for long periods of time. The shocking thing to this is they are becoming leaner and healthier.

It’s not easy to diet while vacationing!...

Article by Only Health News Oh, how I love vacations! I have been extremely blessed over the past few years to be able to take my little family on vacation.

Yes, they really do eat salad for breakfast in Israel!...

Whether we stayed in a flash hotel in Jerusalem, on an Orthodox Jewish kibbutz or in an Arab B&B in a small town, everywhere it was the same: the healthiest breakfasts you can imagine. They consisted of salads: the two core ingredients are chunks of tomato and cucumber, plus red onion, capsicum, feta, herbs (parsley and mint) and olives. (Not a fan of olives, I substitute red grapes.) Traditionally Mediterranean salads do not include lettuce but there were lettuce salads, with carrot, mushrooms, courgette, tabouleh, chickpeas, seeds, nuts (walnuts) and more. There were also eggs several ways, fish (including my favourite: smoked salmon), yoghurt, cheeses, hummus (the real thing – absolutely delicious), pita bread, fresh and dried fruit...
