Healthy Info for Thanksgiving Day!

.

We are all Thankful for so much this time of year.

I am dealing with a lot of health issues myself, and we are taking care of my parents who are having serious health problems as well.

Every day, it is important to learn more about healthy choices and on moving towards better health.  I need to remind myself of this, too!

I recommend Sparkpeople.com for information, coaching, exercises, encouragement, and good friends.

Here is my profile on sparkpeople – http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=SALLYKWITT

My doctor recommended this free site for daily exercises –

I was happy to find two articles today on Huffington Post that help.

Great nutritional info from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/26/turkey-health-benefits-thanksgiving_n_6201446.html:

For some of us, it’s all about the sides. Or the out-of-this-world leftover breakfasts on Black Friday morning.

But Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be complete without that turkey (sorry, turkey alternatives). And while there are plenty of recipes and cooking methods that might make you think otherwise (deep frying, we’re looking at you), turkey is actually pretty powerful in the nutrition department.

Slice yourself a three-ounce serving of light meat (roughly the size of a deck of cards) and you’ll also be giving yourself a whole host of nutrients and vitamins your body needs, all for under 200 calories and 6 grams of fat. Here are a few of the highlights.

Protein
On average, women should aim for 46 grams of protein a day and men should shoot for 56. With 25 grams of the stuff in a three-ounce serving of turkey, you’ll be well on your way — and for fewer calories and less fat than the same size serving of beef. Keep in mind, however, that most Americans have no trouble meeting these protein allowances. Yes, we need protein to build and repair cells, keep snacking urges curbed and lower stroke risk, but it is possible to get too much.

Selenium
That turkey has about 24 micrograms of selenium, almost half of an adult’s daily recommended amount. Selenium plays an important role in thyroid hormone metabolism and reproduction and acts as an antioxidant.

Phosphorus
There are around 196 milligrams of phosphorus in your turkey serving. The mineral is mostly used in building healthy bones and teeth, but it’s also instrumental in how the body makes protein and uses carbs and fats. Adults generally need about 700 milligrams a day.

B Vitamins
Turkey offers a handful of B vitamins, including niacin, B6 and a little riboflavin. Niacin helps with digestion and turning the food we eat into energy. B6 is important tobrain development during pregnancy, immunity and metabolism. And riboflavin also helps convert food to energy and plays an important role in red blood cell production.

Tryptophan
Forget what you think you know about tryptophan: It’s not what’s making you so sleepy after your Thanksgiving feast.

Now, here’s what you should know: It’s an essential amino acid, meaning the body can’t make tryptophan on its own. We get it from foods, like turkey (although it’s not even all that high in it, compared to say, cheese) and it in turn helps the body make niacin (see more on that below) and serotonin, a key brain chemical involved inbalancing your mood.

Another article that impressed me has this information on burning off the calories!

Info from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/26/thanksgiving-calories-whoa-nelly_n_6222060.html

It is not a secret that Americans overeat on Thanksgiving. We typically consume more calories during this one meal than we ingest in an entire regular day. According to the Calorie Control Center, Americans eat anywhere from 3,000 to 4,500 calories at this annual feast. That’s equivalent to about seven Big Macs. It would take more than 20 hours of bowling to burn all of that off. Or, if bowling isn’t your game, you could spend nearly eight hours shooting hoops (maybe instead of playing “Horse,” you’d play “Turkey” for festivity’s sake) before you broke even.

Of course, you can’t out-exercise an unhealthy diet, and we don’t recommend spending time post-Thanksgiving un-doing your delicious meal. We say, enjoy the day, the food and the company — and then get back to your normal routine. If you’re curious how other activities match up to your Thanksgiving plate, check out the infographic below, courtesy of CoachUp.

Just do what you can to move towards health instead of away from it!

Learning is different for everyone at every age!

Learning is not just for children, we are always learning.  It is essential to being alive.

Ask any new mother if they can tell what their baby is learning everyday, it is amazing how they learn about their world, their family, their body.

To stay young as we age it is recommended that we  learn new skills, hobbies, languages and more.  Our brains crave new information, color, sound, and stories throughout our lives.

Here is a very modern appropriate quote about how we learn.  I do love Benjamin Franklin.

Benjamin Franklin

When I was in Grad School for Educational Psychology, I loved exploring different ways to help students of all ages learn.  I was a specialist in the “Special Ed” area, so creativity was essential to reach each student’s potential.

Here is a very good overview of Learning Styles from http://www.learning-styles-online.com/overview/

The Seven Learning Styles

  • Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
  • Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
  • Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
  • Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.
  • Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
  • Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
  • Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.

Do you see yourself, your children, your friends in some of these descriptions?

If you are not happy with the way you are getting information, try another way to bring the information to you, another style.  Check out how that feels!

Find something that speaks to you, or amazes you in some way.  Bring excitement into your lives if it has been missing.  It feels great.
