Thanks again for stopping by and as always if you have a story to tell we would love to hear from ya! 


“I take quite a few supplements (after carefully researching them) and I have to say this Enada NADH is one of the most amazing supplements. I didn’t expect to feel any differently until after using it for a month, as described on the directions, but I felt more energetic shortly after taking it. For instance, my eyes had been feeling very tired by mid-afternoon, and this fatigue disappeared the next day. I thought it was coincidence perhaps, but I haven’t felt the eye fatigue since. Then, after about three weeks, I’ve been able to run longer and faster at the gym than I’ve ever been able to. I used to do just about 5 miles at the gym on good days, and just this week, I was able to run 5 1/2 miles for the first time ever. And I don’t feel more tired either.”
Anonymous

“All I could find locally was from a company trying to skirt the patent issues relating to Enada Labs by putting out an inferior – as in not even conforming to the original patents – but at over twice the price I found. I’m glad I came across the website and I will be ordering again before the 4 boxes I just purchased run out!
-Herb I

“ENADA provides me with a high level of sustainable energy that lasts from the time I take the supplement in the morning continuously until I fall asleep at night. And I am able to sustain this level of peak performance throughout the day without having to drink even one cup of coffee!”
-Sage R.

For our Fact Friday, we are answering more of your questions!



Q. How does my energy depend on NADH? 
A. The billions of cells that form tissue and organs and ultimately the human body have an 
important assignment: to produce energy. If our cells slow down or decline in their energy 
production, the most visible result is that we are tired and can increasingly experience greater 
overall fatigue. NADH is part of every living cell. Inside each cell a process known as the Krebs cycle combines NADH with Hydrogen to form ATP, your body’s own energy. 

Q. How does the body produce energy? 
A. Bringing hydrogen and oxygen together is one of the most efficient ways to produce energy. A rocket launched into outer space is an example of energy production. All cells in our bodies use the same principle of energy production, but they do so in a sophisticated way to conserve the energy produced. NADH is the biological form of hydrogen that reacts with the oxygen we breathe in to form energy and water. The energy‐ producing process in cells is achieved by a cascade of reactions, which lead to the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy‐containing compound in cells. One molecule of NADH will form three times the amount of ATP. Therefore, NADH is an extremely efficient and effective energy producer. 

Q. How does the body store energy?  
A. Living cells have the capability to store energy in the form of chemical compounds. When these compounds are metabolized, energy is released and used for all cellular processes. Only a few biological substances display all the features of energy‐rich compounds. The most important of these are adenosine triphosphate (ATP), creatine phosphate (CP), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride (NADH), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate hydride (NADPH). 

Q. How does NADH help my body? 
A. NADH has energy stored in its chemical structure. When it is absorbed and taken up by the body cells, NADH produces energy. NADH can be compared to a turbine in an electric power plant. Water at a higher level has more energy than water at a lower level. If you insert a turbine (wheel) in this waterfall, you can produce electrical energy. Hence, the more NADH a cell has available, the more energy can be produced. The amount of NADH a cell contains depends on the amount of energy the cell requires. Heart muscle cells have the highest NADH content because the heart is the organ that needs the most energy in the body. Cells in the brain and muscles contain 60 percent of the NADH content of those in the heart 

Q. Does NADH enhance the immune system?  
A. Yes, it does. NADH is directly involved in the cellular immune defense system. Special white 
blood cells, called macrophages, are responsible for direct elimination of foreign bodies such as bacteria, viruses, and molds. They literally capture these foreign bodies and then degrade and eliminate them. During this process, a markedly increased metabolic activity including oxygen consumption takes place. Most of the oxygen is converted to superoxide and hydrogen peroxide, which are able to destroy viruses or bacteria. This phenomenon is known as “metabolic burst” and appears to be the first and most critical step leading to the destruction of the foreign invader. Large amounts of NADH are required for this process. Hence, the more NADH your body has available, the more protection your immune system can provide.

We have talked about how NADH has helped athletes be faster, stronger, better, improve times and results during workouts. NADH supplements also provide faster recovery. Mojo, is here to help you through your workouts, and here are some other remedies to help you feel better after. 
If you are just starting a new exercise program, or just changing up your current gym routine, having muscle soreness is inevitable. While over-the-counter pain relievers are effective, they can be hard on your body over time and you may prefer using a natural form of pain relief. While some natural pain relievers are well known, here are some that aren’t quite as well known.
Epsom Salt
Epsom salt, is a natural muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory. Add a cup or two of Epsom salt to a hot bath and soak for as long as possible. Daily soaking baths help shorten healing time so pain ends sooner, Epson salt is also good for achieving soft skin.
Herbs
Herbs such as peppermint, cayenne and ginger are ingredients often found in pain-relieving creams. These herbs have anti-inflammatory properties and ease pain while. They also have a warming property to them that loosen tight muscles. Be careful when applying herbs with this warming property, application in sensitive areas can cause burning sensation.

Movement


If you’re stiff and sore, don’t stop moving! If you spend the day you are sore not moving around you will only become more stiff. Get moving, do some gentle stretching and go for a walk. If your muslces are tensed up and allowed to not have to stretch out it will just stay tensed up. 

Lavender Oil
Lavender is a popular remedy for muscle pain relief. It has been used as a massage oil for thousands of years. Its cell regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties are well-documented, and it can be applied to the skin undiluted, unlike many essential oils. Its fragrance is well-known for its relaxation and sleep-inducing properties.

Welcome to another Fact Friday! Let’s spend this Fact Friday getting to know why ENADA is the right choice fro your NADH supplement needs.

After 20 years we here at ENADA carry the world’s first and only form of NADH that is food grade, stabilized and protected by world patents! Food grade means its is the only NADH supplements that is considered safe for use in food by the Food and Drug Administration.

 

Other companies continue to try to bypass these patents and introduce false NADH products. However un-stabilized NADH degrades rapidly under the influence of light, humidity, temperature, and other factors. When these other products are subjected to independent laboratory analysis, the majority of these products do not meet label claims of NADH content. This deceives consumers and leaves the impression that NADH is ineffective. If a NADH product is not stabilized, you are wasting your time and money. NADH was discovered in 1905 and Enada researchers spent a lifetime overcoming the stabilization obstacles and released his research and formula exclusively with the Enada brand of NADH which has been used in most studies involving NADH over the past 20 years.


Benefits of stabilized NADH Include:·         Natural and non-stimulant energy provider (no jitteriness)
·         Staying on task after sleep deprivation
·         Helps with Travel fatigue and Jet Lag
·         Improves Cognitive Performance
·         Relieves Drowsiness
·         Improves Stamina
·         So much more!

After 20 years stabilized Enada has an overwhelming amount of feedback and testimonials. These testimonials are listed on the blog HERE and website here: https://enadh.com/category/testimonials/ as well as a review section on each of the products on the retail website www.co-e1.com/shop

Asparagus is nutrient rich, low in calories and a good source of dietary fiber, not to mention it is so good tasting! These things make asparagus for weight loss a good choice. Any weight loss program should include the addition of dietary fiber as it helps to reduce food intake by creating a sense of fullness and stabilizing blood sugar.

Asparagus contains asparigine, a natural diuretic that helps to remove waste and excess fluids from the body, preventing water weight gain, and contributing to the breakdown of fat in the body.

  • Asparagus also has a carbohydrate called inulin that stimulates healthy bacteria inside the large intestine, and healthy bacteria helps with digestion.

  • Asparagus is a good source of vitamin A which aids in promoting healthy eyes and clear vision.

  • It contains compounds that will help to keep your heart healthy.

  • This green veggie is full of folate and energizing B vitamins. 

  • Other nutriends in asparagus include, vitamin C, K manganese, and iron.

  • Asparagus is full of fiber to help aid in promoting healthy digestion.

  • Asparagus boots immunity. 

It is time to talk about our latest obsession: natural flavored water. Now we don’t feel the need to lecture about how bad sports drinks, soda, and other “fruit” juices are, there are enough articles on the internet that can explain the dangers for you. We just want to highlight the joys and benefits that come with making your favorite flavored water at home.

We have a Brita Water Filter Pitcher because the water from the tap, at least here in California, is not great. No point in adding to all the water bottle pile up,the Brita Water Filter Pitcher works well and makes the water have a nice crisp flavor.

Flavored water can be subtle or packed with the flavors infused into it. It all depends on what you want to use and how long you let it sit or seep.



What is needed:

Fruit: whatever kind you like (except bananas, too mushy). Make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor, especially if using berries. The most popular flavored waters use citrus. 
Fresh vs. frozen fruit. When in season, use fresh fruit. If out of season, use frozen, frozen is picked at the peak of ripeness.

Herbs: Many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors. Mint, basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, lavender, and tarragon.

Something to put it in: We use mason jars, the larger the better, primarily because they look nicer and keep it colder, but any 2 quart pitcher will do. 

Amazing photo credit goes to: The Yummy Life
Here are some amazing pictures from a fellow flavored water enthusiast over at The Yummy Life blog.

Here are some of our favorite combinations!

Raspberry Lime: Start with 2 limes; with your hands, squeeze the juice into the jar, then throw in the squeezed lime quarters. Add how ever many raspberries you would like. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Tip: You can also add mint leaves to this one for an extra flavor. 

Mint, Cucumber, Lime: slice up 1/2 a cucumber, 1/2 a lime squeeze the juice into the jar, then throw in the squeezed lime quarters,1/4 cup fresh mint leaves. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Strawberry, Lemon Baisl: 1/2 cup sliced strawberries, 1/2 a lemon, sliced, 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Watermelon Mint: 1 cup cubed watermelon, 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves. Take a spoon, preferably wood, and press the ingredients down to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

Health Tip! Mint: Mint leaves are loaded with antioxidants and keep stomach cramps and acidity at bay. They have anti-inflammatory properties, and mint juice acts as an excellent skin cleanser.

The owner of our company came in this morning and declared that today is to be the day that we let go. The day we forgive and forget. Today is the day we choose to be stronger than the “drama” in our lives and choose to make life better.


He wrote on our whiteboard this quote:

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Mahatma Gandhi



He is a very health conscience and passionate man. So I couldn’t help but use his passion and determination as inspiration for today’s post. I mean it was literally the first thing he declared when he passed my office this morning. Our business mission is to develop and market safe, reliable, effective products, which will improve the quality of life for all people, our wish goes beyond our supplements and we dream of a world with overall happiness and wellness.
I think that we all can think of someone that has wronged us and it isn’t easy to carry anger and hurt. To completely let go of something painful and forgive the person who may or may not have realized what they did is a hard thing to do. It is easy at times to be convinced that the person who hurt did it with full intention and cruelty. Feeling no compassion; just unadulterated pain and rage.
This is usually not the case however. Generally no one is purely bad, and everyone carries pain that influences their decisions. This doesn’t condone their thoughtless, insensitive, or selfish decisions, but it makes them easier to understand. After all, we’ve all been thoughtless, insensitive, and selfish at times. Usually, we have good intentions. After doing research we have come up with ways to let go and reasons to forgive, to forget, and to heal.


Time


We have all heard it but it is the truth. If you can’t move on right now don’t beat yourself up. You do not want to keep thinking of the past. If you don’t feel forgiving, you can at least not act on anger and count that as a triumph. Remember that we are all doing the best we can at the time. Don’t force it. Yes, by all means set goals and take steps in the right direction, but don’t disregard the baby steps, these steps are your life’s story. Let go of all the needless trying and let yourself take these steps peacefully and mindfully. When you let go of it, you get over the anger/bitterness that you felt and it clears the path for forgiveness. Eventually forgiveness will come if you welcome it.

Get it Out

Write a brutally honest, emotionally raw letter telling them how much they have hurt and angered you. Or write about everything that is bothering you and how you feel at the time. Then read it, hopefully it will bring out some emotion and can help you sort your feelings. Then tear it up, think about the fact that you are not that hurt and that anger. It is fleeting, just like everything else. Let the letter carrying your hurt and disappointment disappears into the air, you can let it go.
Hopefully you will come to the realization that no one ever gets to the end of their life and thinks, “I wish I stayed angry longer.”

Be a little Selfish


Remind yourself to forgive not for them but for you and that it’s easier to forgive than to hang on to so much anger, hurt and betrayal. If you have done all you can do and they choose to still be hateful or hurtful, just do what you need to do and forget about them. Remember you. Working on a better you is more fulfilling than hanging on. Let it all go and hold on to your growth and kindness instead. If you train yourself to consistently be more loving in thoughts and actions, your positive energy will attract more positive results into your current reality.
Be unlike the person or situation that hurt you. Let go and grow past your pain. Carry on living well in a way that creates peace in your heart. The energy you would spend reliving a situation can be better spent creating an amazing future for yourself.

Don’t be so hard on yourself
Let go of the need to forgive every mistake.”Mistakes are the growing pains of wisdom.” We all make mistakes, they just need to be accepted, not forgiven. There is an obvious shift in your heart and mind that happens when you go from feeling hurt and upset to peaceful and loving, but it’s not necessarily forgiveness that’s taking place, it’s just the realization that there was nothing to forgive in the first place. Perfection doesn’t exist. Forgiveness is oftentimes the simple realization that there is nothing that actually needs to be forgiven.

Fact Friday! NADH Why?

http://www.flickr.com/photos/upholds/991317849/


If you could take a natural substance that occurs in every single cell to increase your overall energy, would you? 

 

If you could take a natural substance that boosts the immune system and protects your cells from damage, would you? 

http://www.flickr.com/photos/anvrecife/4397048396/


If you could take a natural substance that enhances your cognitive capability and improve your memory, would you?

Good news: you can. There is a natural biological substance that offers these benefits and many more. This substance is NADH, the abbreviation for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide with high‐energy hydrogen. NADH is also known as coenzyme 1, scientific research and physicians’ experience shows that it has a profoundly important effect to keep you healthy and energetic.

So what exactly is NADH? It is a naturally‐occurring and vital compound found in ALL living cells of plants, animals, and humans. It is essential for adequate energy, and supplementation can improve energy levels. The human body carries on many important functions or activities at the same time.

All of these activities require cellular energy production. The memory, immune system, and even the DNA repair system are dependent on the proper production of cellular energy. NADH has also been proven to increase energy, as well as act as an anti-­aging nutrient, enhances memory and is the body’s top antioxidant.

ENADA is the only brand of NADH currently available that is stabilized and is actually protected by several worldwide patents. Competitors continue to try to bypass these patents and introduce NADH products. However, all these products are non‐stabilized forms of NADH. When subjected to independent laboratory analysis and validation, the majority of these products do not contain any NADH. The result of the absence of NADH in these products hurts consumers and leaves the impression that NADH is ineffective. 

For those customers who desire immediate effects, we have recently added another supplement to our collection. ENADA MOJO is fast‐acting and designed for demanding and active lifestyles. It has been carefully crafted without the enteric coating of the other ENADA pill, thus can be taken at any time, regardless of when you last ate. Also ENADA MOJO comes in 10mg and 20mg doses, so you can tackle that last mile or extra work hours with energy and integrity.

So now you’re probably wondering which supplement is right for you. Well, it depends on what
results you are looking for. If you have an active, busy lifestyle and require more energy in less
time, then the MOJO tablets are most likely best for you. The 10mg tablets are for people who desire quick energy, but aren’t doing anything extreme, such as intense physical exertion. These are best for the everyday person with everyday tasks at hand. The 20mg tablets are for those that exert a lot of physical effort or are in need of constant energy throughout the day. This may be a triathlete before and during his or her race, or an executive with days constantly full of meetings and negotiations. Simply put, the 20mg is just a more intense than the 10mg, so based on the amount of energy you need, you can decide which supplement is right for you. 


If you are taking ENADA supplements for health purposes, the 5mg tablets are for you. These ones are taken daily, in the morning, and have a slower effect as they are dissolved in the lower intestine.

Sleepy Times



We have been told since we were children that we need to get our sleep, but just how important is sleeping for our health? 


A recent survey found that more people are sleeping less than six hours a night, and sleep difficulties visit 75% of us at least a few nights per week. A short-lived bout of insomnia is generally nothing to worry about. The bigger concern is chronic sleep loss, which can contribute to health problems such as weight gain, high blood pressure, and a decrease in the immune system.Sleep makes you feel better, but its importance goes way beyond just boosting your mood or banishing under-eye circles. Here are some reasons why you should be catching those Zzz’s! 

1. Learning and memory:
Sleep helps the brain commit new information to memory through a process called memory consolidation. In studies, people who’d slept after learning a task did better on tests later.

2. Cardiovascular health: 

Serious sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension, increased stress hormone levels, and irregular heartbeat.

Disease:

Sleep deprivation alters immune function, including the activity of the body’s killer cells. Keeping up with sleep may also help fight cancer 




3. Steer clear of depression:

A lack of sleep can contribute to depression. A good night’s sleep can really help a moody person decrease their anxiety. You get more emotional stability with good sleep.If you think the long hours put in during the week are the cause of your anxiety or impatience, sleep cannot necessarily be made up during the weekend. It’s all about finding a balance. Sleep loss may result in irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness. Too little sleep can also leave you too tired to do the things you like to do.

4. Lower stress:

When it comes to our health stress and sleep are nearly one and the same, and both can affect cardiovascular health. Sleep can definitely reduce levels of stress, and with that people can have better control of their blood pressure. It’s also believed that sleep effects cholesterol levels, which plays a significant role in heart disease.



5. Have a healthy weight: 

If you are thinking about going on a diet, you might want to plan an earlier bedtime too. Researchers at the University of Chicago found that dieters who were well rested lost more fat, 56% of their weight loss—than those who were sleep deprived, who lost more muscle mass. (They shed similar amounts of total weight regardless of sleep.) Dieters in the study also felt more hungry when they got less sleep.

Sleep and metabolism are controlled by the same sectors of the brain. When you are sleepy, certain hormones go up in your blood, and those same hormones drive appetite.


6. Curb inflammation: 

Inflammation is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and premature aging. Research indicates that people who get less sleep, six or fewer hours a night, have higher blood levels of inflammatory proteins than those who get more.



7. Makes Us More Active:

A good night’s sleep will make us feel more active and alert on the following day. Energy levels after a good sleep are higher, your mental awareness is more acute and you are more likely to smile more. A restful sleep session not only feels great, but it increases our chances for another good night’s sleep next time we go to bed. 


It is hard in a busy world to get what you need to do done and then get to sleep at a decent time. Our energy products are natural, they will give you the boost and mental clarity you need to have energy through out the day but still be able to fall sleep at night. Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more.
Today’s fact Friday is all about you athletes out there. We did a post earlier in the week about Olympian Shevon Stoddart, she takes Co-E1 Mojo for energy and muscle recovery. Did you know that NADH is essential for giving athletes their clean energy and a natural push. 
 
NADH is a co-enzyme, which simply means it helps other enzymes carry out biological functions. It is considered by many researchers and scientists to be the most important co-enzyme in humans. We have mentioned here on the blog numerous ways that NADH supplementation can improve function in humans, but for this weeks fact Friday we will highlight its effects on athletic performance. 
 
NADH and Cognitive Ability (Being athletically smart).
Cognitive function and athletic performance’s relationship is extremely underestimated. One third of all the energy produced in our body is used up by our brain. An energy deficiency is first realized in the brain with symptoms such as lack of concentration and alertness, or mental fog. 
How does NADH provide the brain with more energy? 
 
The energy within our bodies is produced when hydrogen and oxygen react to form water and energy. NADH is the biological form of hydrogen present in our cells and oxygen comes from the air we breathe. The energy produced from this reaction is stored as a chemical compound, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
If you had a deficiency in oxygen there would be major problems, well NADH is the other side of that equation: No oxygen- no ATP. No hydrogen- no ATP. No ATP- no energy. Pretty simple right! 
NADH and Athletic Performance 
 
Researchers have been looking at NADH’s  applications for athletic performance. Physiologic functions boosted by NADH could have beneficial effects for athletes. Research conducted by Enada and colleagues ( International Journal of Sports Medicine 1996) on competitive athletes does indicate that NADH enhances work capacity. Researchers measured reaction times, physical performance and performance quality in 17 competitive cyclists and long-distance runners. Physical performance was measured on a bicycle ergometer. Performance quality was determined by measurements of continuous attention.
 
Athletes underwent these tests both before and after taking 5 mg of NADH before breakfast each morning for four weeks. During the test period, subjects kept constant the frequency and intensity of their training and exercise program as well as lifestyle factors. After four weeks of NADH supplementation, the athletes experienced significantly less scattering of reaction times-it dropped by 10 percent in five athletes, 10 to 20 percent in eight athletes, and more than 20 percent in three athletes. Reaction time overall improved considerably in 16 out of the 17 subjects.
 
. For two athletes, the maximum work performance (work at max per kg/body weight) increased by more than 10 percent, with another seven showing increases of up to 10 percent. Similar improvements were made in maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max/kg).
 
Researchers hypothesized that improved reaction times may have resulted from prior NADH deficiency in some athletes or an increase in dopamine production that led to increased alertness and vigilance. The latter explanation is further supported by studies wherein NADH supplementation increased dopamine production in rats. The researchers went on to say that stimulation of cellular ATP production by NADH may have enhanced, athletic performance- more NADH a cell has available, the more energy it can produce. Conversely, an NADH deficiency results in reduced strength, power and performance. 
 
In addition to improving athletic performance via ATP production NAHD has also been shown to increase L-Dopa production and Nitric Oxide production.
 
Why do care if NADH increases L-Dopa production? 
 
Numerous reasons- but in this conversation it is specifically utilized to stimulate Growth Hormone release from the pituitary gland. 
 
NADH triggers the activation of tyrosine-hydroxylase. Tyrosine hydroxylase or tyrosine 3-monooxygenase is the enzyme responsible for catalyzing the conversion of the amino acid L-Tyrosine (an ingredient in Cabergolean) to L-Dopa. L-Dopa has been shown in numerous studies to be an effective compound for the stimulation of GH release by the pituitary gland. Growth Hormone has been shown in numerous studies to (among other functions) stimulate IGF production, which in turn creates new muscle cells through differentiation and proliferation.
Athletes know that Nitric Oxide is a valuable part of their success because it’s responsible for blood flow, oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output, and muscle growth.
Increasing Nitric Oxide levels can deliver continuous muscle benefits such as:
· Faster gains in lean mass
· Greater strength
· Providing better muscle recovery
· Increasing endurance

Secretly Healthy!



With so many snacks in the world today it is hard to have the will power to always go with the healthy options. Don’t be discouraged, it happens to everyone, but you can still win by modifying your recipes. Here are some tips on how to still eat what you love, but with a healthy twist that will secretly make them better for you and your family! 


1.Guac-KALE-mole! 



You might have seen this popping up in whole foods stores and recipes online and we love it! All you need to do is take your favorite guacamole recipe and cut it in half so you don’t have as big of a portion size. Then you take kale leaves, with stems removed, and finely chop about 3 leaves and add it into the guacamole, you wont even taste the difference and it is now packed with the amazing health benefits kale provides. 

2. Portobello Burgers

If you are a fan of mushrooms your are gonna love this one. If you have heard of or wanted to participate in the meatless Monday movement this is a great one! You put the same seasonings as you would a hamburger patty, and you grill it up just the same. The mushroom gets charred and juicy and delicious! Pile it high with veggies and goat cheese and you wont even notice there is no meat! 

3. No Mayo Tuna Salad

Tuna is a great lunch but it can also be a great snack. Next time you are wanting some dip or a tuna fish sandwich ditch the mayo. There are almost one hundred calories in ONE tablespoon of mayonnaise and most use a lot more than a tablespoon. Cut the calories by instead using mustard, balsamic vinegar, or plain Greek yogurt. Add pickles, chilies, tomatoes, onions and whatever else you like! Substitute the bread for rice or nut crackers and you have a protein packed, low calorie snack or lunch!   

4. Carrot Fries

These are great! You thinly slice carrots and season them just like you would a potato. Bake them at 425F for 10 min on each side. They come out crunchy and delicious just like fries, just serve with your favorite sauce.

5. Zucchini and Chocolate

Did you know that zucchini and chocolate go together! Next time you are making chocolate cake or cupcakes add in about 3 cups of shredded zucchini. When you add zucchini to chocolate cake you can’t even taste it, and it makes it so moist and dense! You can also substitute your oils and butters with apple sauce or avocado!

6. Make it Mini

 If you are going to make a dessert, like a cheese cake for example. Use low fat options and make them mini! Its all about portion control here, you can trick people into not eating as much as they would if they just had a slice. 


Happy National Pistachio Day

February 26th 2014 

Today is the a day for all to celebrate National Pistachio Day. With your Co-E1 energy supplements and these little guys you will have the energy to Crack them open and eat them up all day! Pistachios are more than just a little nut they pack a lot of flavor and health benefits! 

Pistachios are an excellent source of vitamin B6, copper and manganese and a good source of protein, fiber, thiamin, and phosphorus.  In July 2003, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first qualified health claim specific to nuts lowering the risk of heart disease: 

Heart Health

Pistachios have been shown to reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and increase the good HDL cholesterol after only a short period of regular consumption. High in antioxidants such as vitamins A and E, they fight inflammation, protecting blood vessels and reducing risk of heart disease.  

Diabetes Help

Eating pistachios may help to prevent Type 2 diabetes. 60 percent of the recommended daily value of the mineral phosphorous is contained in just one cup of pistachios. As well as breaking down proteins into amino acids, phosphorous aids glucose tolerance.

Skin Health

Pistachios are a great source of vitamin E, a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant, essential for maintaining the integrity of cell membranes and often recommended for healthy and beautiful skin. Vitamin E does an excellent job protecting the skin from UV damage, providing daily defense against premature aging and skin cancer.


Weight management
The fiber content of the nuts may make them more filling, helping people to eat fewer calories later on in the day.  A study published in the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition” in June 2010 found that participants who consumed 240 calories worth of pistachios for 12 weeks lowered their body mass indexes and triglyceride levels more than those who consumed 220 calories worth of pretzels.

Nutrition
Pistachios contain fewer calories and more potassium and vitamin K per serving than other nuts. A 1-ounce serving of dry-roasted pistachios contains 160 calories, 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and 15 grams of fat, including only 2 grams of saturated fat. It also provides you with 25 percent of the daily value for vitamin B-6, 15 percent of the daily value for thiamine and phosphorus and 10 percent of the daily value for magnesium.
