Trend: Growing research on the relationship between sleep and Alzheimer’s Disease

The brain may clean out Alzheimer’s plaques during sleep (ScienceNews):

“Bendlin’s studies are part of a modest but growing body of research suggesting that a sleep-deprived brain might be more vulnerable to Alzheimer’s disease. In animal studies, levels of plaque-forming A-beta plummet during sleep. Other research suggests that a snoozing brain runs the “clean cycle” to remove the day’s metabolic debris — notably A-beta — an action that might protect against the disease … But while the new research is compelling, plenty of gaps remain. There’s not enough evidence yet to know the degree to which sleep might make a d…

Weekend Adventures Part 1: Happy Hour + Fun Run

Source https://www.fannetasticfood.com/weekend-adventures-part-1-happy-hour-fun-run/

Hi guys! We did a lot this weekend so I’m breaking up the action into two posts. Here’s part 1!

On Friday night, Matt, Riese, and I had a fun outing – happy hour! It was sooo hot out but still nice to get out and about and mix it up. We both enjoyed a beer and shared some apps – seared tuna + deviled eggs. Both delicious!

When we got home neither of us was super hungry so we just had a bunch of cut up veggies (bell pepper, cucumber, and carrots) with hummus and crackers and called that the rest of dinner. It worked! And yay for very minimal dinner clean up. 🙂

On Saturday morning, we had a fun adventure planned: a run date with my brother and his fiance, who were in town for their engagement party that evening.

My parents had some fun grandparent time with Riese while the four of us had ou…

The Importance of Finding and Standing in Our Truth

Source http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tinybuddha/~3/WWdKx7bGjS4/

“What I know for sure is that you feel real joy in direct proportion to how connected you are to living your truth.” ~Oprah Winfrey

If we cannot live in and from our truth, then we cannot be authentic. The process of self- actualization is not striving to become the person we are supposed to be. It is removing what is not true for or about us so that we can be the person that we already are.

The hardest part of living in my truth was coming to understand and accept that it didn’t matter how anyone else experienced my childhood and my life but myself. That includes my father, mother, and three siblings. It also didn’t matter how others were affected or not. For our recovery only our truth matters

Why is standing in our truth so important? It is impossible to build a solid life on a foundation of untruths, lies, denial, fabrications, and misinterpretations.

Many of us have built our lives according to what we were taught and what we gleaned from a childhood spent in dysfunctional homes. We were asked to play a role that served our dysfunctional family system and not ourselves. We learned not to question the status quo, to follow unwritten …

Focus on Peaches

Source http://refineryfitnesspdx.com/focus-on-peaches/

 

The other night one of my friends invited me over for a barbecue.  One of the items on her menu was grilled peaches.  They were so tasty- soft but not mushy and filled with flavor. Summer time is one of my favorite times of year because of the abundance of peaches and other stone fruit.  I find that once I start eating them, it is hard to stop.  The good thing about this over indulgence is peaches are loaded with health promoting properties.

One medium raw peach has only roughly 50 calories and is very low in fat while still having 2 grams of regularity producing fiber as well as 1 gram of protein.

Peaches are an excellent source of vitamin C, important in the formation of collagen, the support system of your skin.   Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that can  help fight the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer.

Peaches’ relatively high fiber content is important for both regularity and in helping to combat diabetes.

Peaches are high in potassium which may help to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.  Potassium is an important part of the body and cell fluids that help regulate heart rate and blood pressure.
