Green Smoothies – For Those Wanting A New Lifestyle

I don’t know about you, but I’m willing to try out just about anything.  Even Vegetarian and Vegan dishes.  I’m not afraid to take the plunge.  How about you?

Here is a sweet delicious smoothie that you can try at home.  There are many reasons to try a smoothie, most of the reasons are for the health benefits.  The right smoothies can be quite beneficial for you.  Instead of having to take a Supplement, where only 10% of the nutrients actually goes into your system, you can always try this.

If you just can find the right balance of nutrients, fiber, and what ever else your body needs.  Try a Green Smoothie.  You’ll be glad you did.

I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t want to end up in the Hospital because I didn’t take care of myself.  This could be a step in the right direction for many people.  What about you?

Do you want to be around for your children?  What about for your grandchildren?  If you do nothing this holiday season, or over the new year, make that resolution to take a plunge.  Take a dive into the world of health.

Some Mistakes of Vegans and Vegetarians

One might actually think that it’s easy to just get out there and change your lifestyle, but it’s not.  It can actually be quite hard for some people.

If you want to diet, exercise, and lose weight, there are some things you need to avoid as pointed out in the video below.

Those things are as follows:

Eating too much Fat.
Eating too much Sugar & Stimulants.
Not fixing enough of your own meals.
Not getting enough exercise.
Not being in a community.

For some, working out alone, might be alright.  For many, it’s the exact opposite.  Try to either create your own community, or join an existing one.  That will boost your confidence and willingness to get out there.

 

Restricting Calories – Why Your Image Is Important

When people go on a diet, they tend to restrict calories, or carbohydrates, or fats.  You can’t restrict your diet of any of those.  Each of these are primary substances that our body needs to run.

Every noticed how Self Image is important into today’s age?  Well, it’s important for many reasons.  Mental and Physical healthy being the primary reasons.

The image of who we are is important because not being in good health can cause stress, depression, and numerous other illnesses.  That’s not the lifestyle we need to live.  When you restrict calories in a diet, you’re jeopardizing that lifestyle.

The Raw food movement is gaining ground and more people are starting to take part.  If you want that sexy body you’ve been dying to get, then you might want to take some advice from this girl.

As you can see, Image is everything.  It’s the sole purpose of how we should be, how we should thrive.  If you’ve ever wondered how people can, or should look nowadays, just take a look at a Healthy, Active child.

Those children that run around outside as apposed to sitting inside all day, those are the healthy ones.  They have slim figures, and hardly any fat.  If you look at fitness models, that’s how we should look.  Slim, Trim, and hardly any Fat.  The only time you need Fat, is in Survival Situations.  Clearly, there is an abundance of food here.

Why risk the side effects of being over weight, when you can have a healthy, slim, fit body?

What are you going to start doing to get that body you’ve always desired?

Kids Are Smarter Than Adults

Many people tend to think that kids are dumb and stupid.  I can tell you from experience that they are exactly the opposite.  Most of them anyway.  Why are kids smart?

When we grow up, we tend to think about Money, Making things easier for our friends, Owning a home, Starting a family, many numerous things.  Kids think about having fun, enjoying life, what’s it’s like to be a grown up, but some kids even think about what’s best for them.

Remember the whole ordeal with Congress saying that Pizza is a Fruit?  Seriously congress?  Surely you don’t think that?  Or is it the money talking from the Pizza Industries that supply pizza to the majority of schools?  Bribery is a federal offense and while most of you haven’t got caught yet, we know.  We’ve been watching, listening.

Especially the kids.  This kid has a message.  Be sure to share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Biggest Reasons Why Americans Are Overweight!

Americans are said to be the most over weight, but many have a hard time figuring out why.  Why is it that many Americans are starting to be overweight and in worse health than the previous generation?  I think I have the answer.

Reason 1

Exercise….
Many Americans nowadays aren’t getting enough exercise.  That’s right, something as simple as exercise can have a big impact on our daily lives.  In the movie WALL-E, the people roamed around on hover chairs.  Who needs a wheel chair right?  Especially when the machine will do all the work for you.

Is that the kind of life style we want?  To be subjects who are limited in our mobility based on some machine?  Right now many kids are experiencing this because of Parents not letting their kids play in the park.  Instead, they’ll let them play Video Games all day and do nothing.

Now, before you go bashing Video games and start blaming the games themselves, maybe you should take a closer look a parenting.  I play Video Games myself, but that doesnt’ mean that Nerds can’t be fit.  I in fact have started a Cardio Routine, which will eventually turn into running, which in turn will turn into a Marathon.

I have goals, kids nowadays, don’t.  That’s partly because parents let their kids spend too much time playing Video Games as apposed to….well, playing.

Reason 2

Over Indulging…..
Many restaurants have started (in the last decade)  increasing portion sizes.  Now, they even go as far as encourage you to get a large or (in some cases) super-size.  In this case, bigger isn’t always better.  Tell me something.

Do you feel better now that you’re bigger?  Again, bigger isn’t always better.  My parents often times make two meals out of one meal when they go out to eat.  Why?  Many of these meals are filled with Calories.  Many of them over 1,000 calories.  That’s half a days Calories for most.

Still think Bigger is Better?

Reason 3

Quality of Food
Our food quality has reduced in the last 10-20 years drastically.  Farmers are basically killing the land that they farm one with all the chemicals that they spray on plants.  Therefore, we’re forced to look for alternatives: plants that are bug resistant, plants that yield more, and even plants that grow better in certain climates.

When you start tampering with plants: spraying chemicals, changing DNA strands, making them more volatile, something has to give.  So, where do we suffer?  In Nutritional Value.  I can’t stress this enough….

Life is too precious to tamper with.  By tampering with those plants, they’re tampering with our health.  Empty calories adds to our over all weight.  Really.  What else is our body going to use useless calories for?

So, my question for you today is, did this inspire you?  If so, what are your plans for taking action?

What To Get?

Ok, many of you know that picking a Birthday present some times can be a pain.  I mean seriously?  Techie/Nerdy types are even harder to choose for.  Why?  What do you get someone that’s a Nerd/Geek?  So much too choose from, so much variety.

I have believe it or not managed to figure out what I want for my Birthday.  It’s an Android Tablet, running version 2.2.  Sorry Apple fans, iPads are just way out of my budget.  The Tablet I chose, is only $75.  Can’t hardly go wrong there.

Birthday Songs – Ewe

Today is my 30th Birthday and having dinner at any restaurant is usually interesting on this day.  You know what I mean, they come out with a piece of Birthday Cake and sing that little annoying song.

Ok, the Happy Birthday song, isn’t annoying.  Just to get that clear.  I’m talking about the song they sing at the restaurant.  Happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday.  You know the one.  That catchy, but annoying one that makes you embarrassed to be there.

The funny thing is, we were at Applebees the night before and someone had a birthday in the booth right behind us.  I was like, oh no, that song again.  Even when it’s not your birthday, it makes you smile and blush.  All I have to say is WTF?

I was going to ask the waitress at Outback, what they offered for Birthdays.  My mother told me I could always tell her it’s your Birthday, but they’ll come out and sing that song.  I answered right away, “No, absolutely not.  That’s just down right embarrassing.”

Needless to say, I didn’t have a Birthday song, nor did I have a piece of Cake.  Personally, I don’t like Birthday Cake on my Birthday.  If it’s another Birthday, I’m usually fine with eating a slice of Cake.  I”d rather have a tasty Cheesecake instead, with strawberries and whip cream on top.

I decided to not get the Cheesecake either.  My mother was like, “for the whole $4 (for the slice), I could make you a whole Cheesecake.”  So, I’m sure you know what I opted for.  I’d rather have a whole Cheesecake than a slice any day and no one makes them better than my mom does.  That’s I’ve found yet.

With that, I hope your birthday is just as eventful.  Joking around about silly birthday songs  and what ever else you can find to joke about.  And may you get a whole Cheesecake on your Birthday to celebrate.

Kona’s Korner

You might be wondering what the heck Kona’s Korner is?  It’s nothing more than another Gamer site.  Well, not exactly just another gaming site.

His reviews range from Orcs Must Die to Modern Warfare.

The site itself is very well designed.  A clean look, easy on the eyes and well laid out.

Minecraft – Adventures with TFLAT – Search for the Cove

I booted up Minecraft today to make a new episode.  The series starts off on the wrong foot and things appear to be going slow.  What will the next episode bring us?  My goal in this series is to find the cove, which will be in the next episode, and build a port of some sort.  Be it a Pirates port or what ever I can think of.  Life is too short to not enjoy.  Minecraft is one of my enjoyments.  Even if it doesn’t start off so good, it’s still a fun pass time.

Budget Games and Software

I will be reviewing some Budget Games and Software in the coming weeks.  Most people are looking fun and good software on a budget.  What is my budget?  I’m limiting my purchases to $20.  You can expect a review on a budget product most Fridays.  Some weeks may be skipped, do to various factors.

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover they say, but the cover is the selling point.  Instead, I’m going to say, “You shouldn’t judge a game/software by it’s price.”  Just because it’s budget, doesn’t mean it’s not a good game/software.  For example, you can now get Sim City 4 for $10.  That is one product I will review.

The product I will be reviewing up in the coming week is, Encyclopedia Britannica.  This information filled product is a bit more accurate than Wikipedia and I’ll be giving it a whirl over the next week.  When opinion matters, I’ll be giving you my two cents on Friday.  Stay tuned for that.

If you’d like to send me a free copy of your software to review, then I’d be happy to oblige.  The software must be a reason price and budget friendly.
