Making Healthy Lifestyle Choices

I recently heard a news report that nearly 70% of American YOUTHS are obese and 30% of American ADULTS are obese. Not all Americans NEED to lose weight, but all people should strive for a Healthy Body and Healthy Lifestyle, the two go hand in hand.

One thing each of us can do is look at the foods we eat. Are we making the right choices for our bodies on a daily basis?

A Blog Post on Yahoo Health ( on July 15th listed the 6 Healthiest Foods You Aren't Eating. They include:
1. Celery
2. Seaweed
3. Scallops
4. Hemp Sees
5. Lentils
6. Dark Chicken Meat

Try incorporating at least one of these foods into your diet. An easy trick would be to add lentils to rice as it is cooking. The lentils add a different texture and a good dose of protein!
