Simple Lifestyle Education for a Healthy Life
Health is a major concern in the United States and around the world. This concern affects all ages. Baby-boomers want to reverse the aging process. The youth are more prone to Diabetes Type II than ever before. To many of these concerns, there are solutions. Let us work with you to bring these solutions into your life.
Studies at the University of Utah and the University of Colorado show that exercising, eating low-glycemic food, keeping a journal, and taking pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements help us to improve our health. A bi-product of this improved health is that we can obtain an ideal weight. It is interesting that blood work often improves before there is a significant weight loss.
We do teach how to select and prepare foods that are healthy for us. The food we eat is an important key to our health. This program helps you develop good eating happens based on what is available in the store and in restaurants. We help with both. Ask us about a list of foods with their glycemic index and load. We include a few of our favorite recipes to use the best foods.
Our course is aimed at adults and teenagers. We are also developing a class for parents to teach children how to eat well. The two books we recommend are:
- Healthy for Life; Ray D. Strand, MD; Real Life Press (2004/2995); ISBN o-9747308-4-X- We highly recommend this book for learning how to live a healthy life.
- How to Get Kids to Eat Great and Love It!; Christine Wood, MD; KidsEatGreat Inc. (2006); ISBN 0-9673387-1-9 – We highly recommend this book for parents who are teaching their children how to live a healthy life (purchase at: http://www.kidseatgreat.com/shop-book-kidseatgreat.htm)
Our site picture was taken by Wayne Cook from our community garden in Greeley. Looking west at the Rockies, you see Longs Peak on the left. The picture was taken in the fall of 2009 as we were harvesting produce from the garden just before the first freeze of fall. The reason why we chose yellows and browns is to indicate the importance of eating foods that are as close to the way they come from the earth as possible. It is vitally important that we all eat foods that are as least processed as possible. We chose the sunset because it indicates completeness, the results of working hard to develop a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
