Brain-Boosting Snacks to Celebrate Pi - Day !

Of all the brain food snacks that will help improve memory and brain power, here are the top ones we recommend based on taste, cost, and ability to be eaten -and they can make you smarter, and help strengthen your brain.                                                                
          Avocado, Blueberries, Coffee, Dark Chocolate,  Extra Virgin Coconut oil, Green Tea, Pumpkin Seeds, Red Wine, Spinach,Walnuts,  and of course Veggies... Spinach, kale, broccoli and other leafy green vegetables are rich in many brain-loving nutrients.                        
Adults who ate just 13 grams of walnuts every day performed significantly better on cognitive tests than those who didn't, and so walnuts have been added to the growing list of foods for geniuses. 
Fish is a great source of omega-3, the type of fatty acid your body can't produce, and it's good for your brain. At least twice a week, eat five ounces of omega-3-rich fish, such as salmon, cod, haddock, tuna or halibut.  
And remember - memory? Diet isn't the only way to preserve memory. If you want to keep your brain sharp as you get older, follow these recommendations:
  • Control your cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure levels with diet, exercise, and medicines such as statins or beta-blockers if you need them.
  • Quit smoking. One review of studies associated smoking with a significantly higher risk for Alzheimer's disease.
  • Get outside for a brisk daily walk. Exercising three or more times a week has been linked to a lower risk for dementia.
  • Work with your doctor to keep your weight in a healthy range for your height. A body mass index (BMI) between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal.

HAPPY PI - DAY ..all..

Mother Earth, Mother Nature, We the Children & Easter

Did you know the first Greek God was actually a Goddess?. he is Gaia, or Mother Earth, who created herself out of primordial chaos. From her fertile womb all life sprang, and unto Mother Earth all living things must return after their allotted span of life is over. Gaia, as Mother Nature, personifies the entire ecosystem of Planet Earth. 
Mother Nature is always working to achieve and maintain harmony, wholeness and balance within the environment. Mother Nature heals, nurtures and supports all life on this planet, and ultimately all life and health depend on Her. In time, Nature heals all ills.
The way of Mother Gaia is the passive, feminine, Yin way of healing. All we need to do to regain our health is to return to the bosom of Mother Nature and live in accordance with Her laws.
The Gaia archetype underlies all notions of the Nature Cure. Mother Nature is a healing goddess for the ancients whose glory was celebrated each spring, long before organized religion came into play.
