10 "Superfoods" to Eat Daily for Optimal Health - Part 10

Cinnamon is a Healing Spice

Studies have linked cinnamon to improved blood sugar in people suffering from diabetes.
Cinnamon is also indicated to have antibacterial, anti-parasitic, and anti-fungal properties. Plus, it's high in manganese, iron, calcium, and fiber all beneficial to the body. 
The health benefits of this super spice continue to be revealed through ongoing studies but it has long been used in traditional medicine.

10 "Superfoods" to Eat Daily for Optimal Health - Part 9

Beans are Brain Food

Beans are an excellent source of soluble fiber and good carbohydrate to eat daily. Soluble fiber helps the heart by soaking up cholesterol before having a chance to stick to the artery wall. The cholesterol is then eliminated through normal body functions. Studies show eating high soluble fiber can reduce total cholesterol by 10 to 15 percent and is linked to reduced heart disease.
Black beans contain anthocyanins, antioxidant compounds shown to improve brain function. They contain the highest plant protein rating but must be combined with a grain such as brown rice to create a “complete” protein.

Olive Oil for Heart Health

Olive oil is considered a healthy dietary fat was shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. The primary fat found in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). MUFAs have been shown to lower total cholesterol and help stabilize blood clotting.
Olive oil has been linked to lowered insulin levels, blood sugar control. Research has shown a great benefit to those suffering from type 2 diabetes.
Olive oil is also bursting with antioxidants called phenols linked to prevention of cholesterol buildup in the artery walls. Look for “virgin,” “extra-virgin,” or “cold-pressed” olive oils for best nutritional values.
The recommended dose is one tablespoon daily to reap heart-healthy benefits.

Broccoli is the Antioxidant King

Broccoli, a cruciferous carbohydrate is one of the most powerful antioxidants in our dietary toolbox. Broccoli protects our body against cancer and ranks at the top of the superfood list.
Broccoli offers high nutritional value with low caloric cost. It is the most nutrient-dense of the vegetable superfoods. Research has labeled broccoli the king of cancer prevention. Research has shown sulfur compounds in broccoli signal our genes to boost production of detoxifying enzymes. These enzymes potentially attack cancer-causing compounds.
In addition, broccoli also boosts the immune system, supports cardiovascular health, builds bones, and fights birth defects.

Yogurt Improves Gut Bacteria

Yogurt is known for its probiotic or live beneficial bacteria. Yogurt is shown to reduce the growth of harmful bacteria in the digestive tract. It also helps maintain stable ph levels in the body. 
Eating yogurt is indicated to boost our immune system and provide protection against diseases like cancer. Probiotics can help with vaginal yeast infections, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcers, and urinary tract infections.
Yogurt is also a great source of bone-building calcium and protein. Not all yogurts are created equal. Look for labeling “live and active cultures” to ensure it contains probiotics. It is also recommended to consume plain over

Read and Gone - Review by Martha A. Cheves

Jim sat down at the kitchen table while I made up a plate with slices of turkey and ham.  I also warmed up a huge piece of lasagna in the microwave.  He ate quickly and neatly as usual.  My father was a thief, but he believed in good clothes and good manners.  When he asked me to serve him…

Sea Cliff - Mary Deal, Author

All her life, her father reminded that she didn't know how to do anything competently.  He'd painfully flick her ear, or slap or kick her when he was frustrated.  He'd use a board if he had one in his hand.  He destroyed what little self-confidence she had and denied her any opportunities to prove her abilities.  In one way or another he'd convince himself he…

This is a comment from Author Lorilyn Roberts, Children of Dreams. I want to invite everyone to watch this show and enter the drawing. This is one amazing mother and daughter.

My daughter's story will be featured on Animal Planet's show "Monsters Inside Me" on Wednesday August 25, 10-11pm EST. The episode number is 210, Shape Shifters (unless they change it between now and then, but this is what they emailed me today).

To celebrate her inspirational adoption and healing from a devastating illness, I am offering a free copy of Children of Dreams on each of my websites from now until the end of August. Here is all you have to do. I just posted a devotional on my website and blog, "Many Lessons for a Life Worth Living," and if you will leave a comment -- a quote, Bible verse, something the devotional spoke to your heart, I will enter your name into a drawing for a signed hard copy. If you go to both websites and enter a comment in both places, your name will be entered twice.

My website is:
My blog is:

The drawing will be September 1.
