I Eat Green Relay Challenge

Take the Challenge!

You know you are what you eat. The food we eat affects how our bodies feel and how our thoughts are generated. In order to live a healthy life you must make the best decisions to avoid a life full of illness, weight challenges, or lack of energy caused by less than optimal food choices.

Anoella.com is inviting everyone to take the "I Eat Green Relay Challenge". Get involved in this fun and interactive activity that promotes healthy lifestyle choices.

The challenge involves people spending their green on greens, posting a photo to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to promote eating healthy food.  People are encouraged to eat dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, collard greens, swiss chard, turnip greens, mustard greens, and broccoli to name a few as they are nutritional powerhouses filled with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. They are rich in chlorophyll, which alkalinizes the blood, and fiber, which keeps the colon healthy. These dark leafy greens can be eaten raw in salads or sautéed and incorporated into a stir-fry, soup or side dish.

Help spread the #iEatGreen phenomenon across social media to promote healthy eating.

Challenge your friends and family today!

Health Benefits of Pumpkin

Pumpkins contain a large number of health benefits that would make it wise for us to incorporate them into our diet.

Good source of vitamins: 

Vitamin A aside, pumpkins contain high amounts of other essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins C and E, magnesium, potassium and iron.

Rich in antioxidants: 

Pumpkins are packed with a number of immune-boosting antioxidants, including alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, which give this fall vegetable its orange hue. These antioxidants play a number of key roles in keeping our bodies healthy. They protect our eyes, enhance our immune system and aid in cancer prevention. Alpha- and beta-carotene are also carotenoids, or precursors to vitamin A, which the body uses to maintain healthy vision and skin.

High in fiber: 

Pumpkins are high in fiber; one cup of pumpkin meat contains 3 grams of dietary fiber, which the body uses to control blood sugar, lower bad cholesterol and aid in weight loss.

Low in calories (and fat): 

If your family celebrates the holidays with a sampling of pies, bypass the pecan and apple and head straight for the pumpkin pie. While all that added sugar and butter aren't doing your waist line any favors, pumpkin is naturally low in fat and calories (one cup contains only 49 calories), making pumpkin a healthy snack (and probably a healthier pie option, too). If plain pumpkin isn't sweet enough, skip the sugar and try adding cinnamon to enhance pumpkin's flavor.

Alkalize and Energize for Life!

Not maintaining the appropriate balance in the body leads to a poor flow of energy and an acidic inner terrain. Scientists have observed that the body fluids of healthy people are Alkaline (a high pH) and the body fluids of sick people are acidic (low pH).

Every food we eat has an electrical charge. The closer the food to its natural state, the higher the charge. In the absence of balance cells carry the wrong electrical charge and began to stick together. This prevents them to go in single file in the capillaries.

Our bodies have 100 trillion cells that are like little fish. If the pH gets too low, the fish die. As a matter of fact, over 150 diseases are linked to a low pH, including cancer, high blood pressure, arthritis, fibromyalgia, thyroid disorder, osteoporosis, diabetes, allergies and many, many more!

Chlorophyll is identical to human blood cells with one exception: the center element in Chlorophyll is magnesium, whereas the center element in blood is iron. Chlorophyll is thus the perfect food for humans.

Green foods contain Chlorophyll, the same green pigment found in plants. Chlorophyll makes life possible on earth; the oxygen we breathe comes from the Chlorophyll in plants.

Foods to Help you Cleanse

Top detox foods

Cleansing foods to get your body back on track.

Check out these top foods to cleanse your body and boost your health.

Lemon

Lemons are a staple of many detox diets, and there is good reason for this. Firstly, lemons are packed with antioxidant vitamin C, which is great for the skin and for fighting disease-forming free-radicals. Furthermore, the citrus fruit has an alkaline effect on the body, meaning that it can help restore the body's pH balance, benefitting the immune system. Try starting your day with hot water and a slice of lemon to help flush out toxins and cleanse your system.

Ginger

If too much fatty food or alcohol has caused problems for your digestive system, it may be worthwhile adding some ginger to your diet. Ginger is not only great for reducing feelings of nausea, but it can help improve digestion, beat bloating and reduce gas. In addition to this, ginger is high in antioxidants and is good for boosting the immune system. To give your digestion a helping hand, try sipping on ginger tea or adding some freshly grated ginger to a fruit or vegetable juice.

Garlic

Garlic has long been known for its heart benefits, however the pungent food is also good at detoxifying the body. Garlic is not only antiviral, antibacterial and antibiotic, but it contains a chemical called allicin which promotes the production of white blood cells and helps fight against toxins. Garlic is best eaten raw, so add some crushed garlic to a salad dressing to boost its flavor and your health at the same time.

Artichoke

If you have recently been overindulging in fatty foods and alcohol, adding some steamed globe artichoke leaves to your meals is a great way to help get your body back on track. Globe artichokes are packed with antioxidants and fiber and can also help the body digest fatty foods. On top of this, globe artichoke is renowned for its ability to stimulate and improve the functions of the liver - the body's main toxin-fighting tool.

Beets

For those needing a quick health-boosting shot of nutrients, you can't do much better than beets. Packed with magnesium, iron, and vitamin C, the vegetable has recently been hailed as a superfood due to its many reported health benefits. Not only are beets great for skin, hair and cholesterol levels, but they can also help support liver detoxification, making them an ultimate detox food. To enjoy their benefits, try adding raw beets to salads or sipping on some beet juice.

Green tea

While it's not technically a food, no detox plan would be complete without regular consumption of essential liquids. Fluids are essential for keeping our organs healthy and helping to flush toxins from the body, and drinking green tea is a great way of boosting your intake. Green tea is not only a good weight-loss drink, but it is extremely high in antioxidants. Research has also suggested that drinking green tea can protect the liver from diseases including fatty liver disease.

Watercress

Like most green herbs and vegetables, watercress is an excellent health-booster and detox food. Firstly, watercress leaves are packed with many vital detoxifying nutrients, including several B vitamins, zinc, potassium, vitamin E and vitamin C. Secondly, watercress has natural diuretic properties, which can help to flush toxins out the body. To reap the benefits of this nutritious food, try adding a handful of watercress to salads, soups and sandwiches.

Achieving balance in your body begins with balancing your food.

Everything in moderation.
