Wk 1 Meals/weekend

Just like in anyone’s life, my life on the weekends can be irregular.  My weekend diet was definitely irregular.  Few ‘meals’ just snacking. But most of the food was good.

Saturday – didn’t feel well, slept most of the day, ate only once, in the eve. Lime water, leftover meatloaf with hummus and avocado.  A little later had 1/2 a cantaloup and some popcorn with a movie.  A square of Dove chocolate and water.

Sunday – Still eating that meatloaf, lol, hummus, avocado, almonds, lime water.  Throughout the day snacked on sausage patties, veggies, salsa. Later, had tuna, veggies, avocado, almonds, wine, popcorn.

Definitely need to shop on Monday.

PRESERVE BRAIN HEALTH

 Check your waistline! 

A body mass index (BMI) over 30 has been linked to poorer scores on memory tests, and carrying too much belly fat, in particular, has been linked to dementia. It’s no coincidence that both of these risk factors are also indicators of heart trouble.

Eating for brain health goes beyond weight control; some foods have particular brain-boosting properties that scientists are beginning to uncover.

Take FISH, for example. People who eat fish once a week have a 60% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to research by Martha Clare Morris, ScD. Morris recently found that a weekly seafood-based meal may slow cognitive decline by 10% per year-the equivalent of turning back the clock 3 to 4 years!

So put FISH on the menu!  Advocare carries an excellent, high quality, easy to take source of the necessary omega 3s.  Always in stock at Lexington Fitness.
