5 Must-Have Foods In Your 2010 Diet

I’m baaaack!  Since the last time I checked in, I had sex AND went back to the gym.  Well, it was about time for both! I’m still sleep deprived, and my kids are still killing each other, but hey, things could be a lot worse! Gratitude I say.

So, because I feel a little better after my run outside this morning in the freezing 35 degree Miami weather, I wanted to pass on 5 must-have foods for your diet this year. I think you know me by now, that with all my shtick, I’m still a pretty positive person. So, I’m off the somber and onto the positive. Ok ladies, it’s 2010!!!  A brand new year! A brand new chance to get it right.

new year's resolutions

If eating healthy was one of your resolutions, then listen up! Experts say there are a few foods that you can add to your diet that will improve your health and help keep away viruses and illnesses. These foods can be found just about anywhere, and while they’re low in calories, they’re big in body benefits.

  1. Grains. Add oat, barley and rye to your daily diet. Rye is set to be the new “in” grain for 2010, as one of its benefits is possibly lowering cholesterol and preventing type 2 diabetes. But take note, make sure to buy RYE MIXED WITH WHOLE WHEAT. Rye whole wheat crackers do the job. Add some cheese, and you have a great snack!
  2. Soy. Research has shown that soy wards off certain types of cancers, and has great benefits to your heart. According to the FDA, 25 grams of soy protein a day can reduce heart problems by reducing cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that introducing soy into our children’s diets can have long lasting positive effects and help fight against breast and prostrate cancer. Soy can also help fight childhood obesity. Soy chocolate milk is a great snack for the kiddies!
  3. Salmon and oily fish. Salmon is high in vitamin D, which you all know, has been a key supplement recommendation this winter season. It contains omega-3 fatty acids that help keep your brain and heart healthy. I love salmon and it is always my Monday night dinner for my family. Actually, the American Heart Association recommends eating fish, particularly oily fish like salmon, fresh tuna, trout, etc.. twice a week. While most fish are a great source of protein, it’s particularly the oily fish that have these great omega-3’s. However, take note, that these fish types should also be eaten in MODERATION. Swordfish and fresh tuna contain mercury that have health risks of their own in high quantities.
  4. Red Wine. I know you’re all saying this is not true. In fact, I have read many studies that say women should stay away from ALL alcoholic beverages. However, a few ounces of red wine a few times a week is actually recommended. Research suggests red wine contains anti-oxidants called polyphenols that help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart. One of the forms of anti-oxidants found in wine, is also found in apples, oranges, onions, tea, cocoa, and grape juice, but red wine has the highest level of the flavonoid. Again, in REAL moderation. Just a few ounces ladies. This is by no means the green light to drink lots of red wine daily. In fact I want to point out, some studies have shown a link between wine and breast cancer recurrence, so please drink with caution.
  5. Green Tea. Green tea is also full of anti-oxidants. I can always count on my mom to drop off a baggie of what looks like a stash of marijuana every few months. I think she goes to China to hand pick the leaves herself! Just kidding. She goes to this remote area in China town and claims that this particular strain of green tea has been tested to help fight cancer. In fact, in a recent Japanese study which looked at women with stage I and II breast cancer, research showed that the women who drank more green tea before and after their surgery, had a lower chance of the cancer recurring. It has also been proven to keep people lean! Hello 2010 resolutioners! Here’s the catch… one cup doesn’t really cut it. Have a few more cups  m’ladies to get the full effect! (CNN)

So ladies, if you are on fence about healthy or crap this year, go healthy. Think lean. Think moderation. Think positive.

think positive

This is probably my last Blog post from sunny Florida, so goodbye sun and beach! We’ve had a wonderful holiday. A la prochaine!


PS – Anyone have any must-have’s of your own you would like to share?

PPS – I couldn’t resist. Here is Tiger Woods’ Leaked Sex Video. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for these suggestions. I’m feeling excited for ’10 and am trying to be healthy and happy this year. I love your blog.

  2. Here is a top 10 list of foods that fight cancer!!

    1. Garlic – Garlic contains a number of compounds that can protect against cancer, especially that of the skin, colon, and lungs.

    2. Dark Leafy Greens – Dark greens are rich sources of antioxidants called carotenoids. These scavenge dangerous free radicals from the body before they can promote cancer growth.

    3. Grapes – Grapes (and red wine) contain the chemical resveratrol, which is a very potent antioxidant that can prevent cell damage before it begins.

    4. Green Tea – The flavonoids in green tea have been shown to slow or prevent the development of several types of cancer including colon, liver, breast, and prostate.

    5. Tomatoes – The compound lycopene, (which is most easily absorbed from cooked tomatoes) has been shown to prevent prostate cancer, as well as cancer of the breast, lung, and stomach.

    6. Blueberries – Of all the berries, blueberries are the richest in cancer fighting compounds. They are beneficial in the prevention of all types of cancer.

    7. Flaxseeds – Flax contains lignans, which can have an antioxidant effect and block or suppress cancerous changes. The omega-3 fatty acids can also help protect against colon cancer.

    8. Mushrooms – Many mushrooms contain compounds that can help the body fight cancer and build the immune system as well.

    9. Cruciferous Vegetables – Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts contain strong antioxidants that may help decrease cancer risk.

    10. Whole Grains – Whole grains contain a variety of anti-cancer compounds including antioxidants, fiber, and phytoestrogens. These can help decrease the risk of developing most types of cancer.

    Remember, along with a healthy diet, a physically active lifestyle is important for cancer prevention as well.

  3. Great post! People usually find that adding healthful foods to their diet is easier than they think and more yummy! My son actually likes whole grain bread now after swearing that he would never eat it. Hint: we stopped buying the other kind. It’s amazing what they will eat when that’s all we have.

  4. The Every Other Day Diet review has found three factors that contribute to weight loss success: exercise, commitment, and realistic expectations. If you have these three, expect the EODD to do wonders to your body weight.

  5. Most of the time it is more important to remember what not to eat to stay healthy:-) And as for soy products, this subject is very controversial- soy products vs fermented soy products.
    Breathe, smile and be happy.

  6. People don’t realize how important is to eat healthy. We should give maximum importance to what we eat if we want to be healthy. And i am glad that there are people like you who share this very useful information

  7. Thanks , I’ve just been looking for information about this subject for ages and yours is the best I’ve came upon
