Are you getting enough proteins through your day?

February 16, 2018, Author: annalisa

Recently I had my blood exams done. I do a complete checkup usually every 6-8 months to see if everything is all right or I need to work on something. The last ones came up pretty good, and I just needed to adjust my proteins slightly. But first, what are proteins? Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells, and we all need them for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller units called amino acids, which are attached in long chains. Twenty different types of amino acids can be combined to make a protein. The sequence of amino acids determines each protein’s unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function. (U.S. National Library of Medicine) Why do we need these Nutrients in our everyday routine? First of all, they are vital to our body’s functioning and keep our muscles healthy and robust. How many times have you heard that proteins make us healthy? It is true! Just think that there is not one cell in our body that don’t require proteins. All our cells and organs, as also our muscles, connective tissues, and bones are held together thanks to the protein as a fundamental component. Regulatory hormones as insulin are also protein, and structural, immunoproteins, transport proteins or again enzymes, they all are necessary to maintain our body healthy. How much protein do […]

How about Juicing!

January 22, 2018, Author: annalisa

I recently came back to Miami after spending three amazing months in Italy. When I went there, middle of October, it was still sunny an warm, but I was wondering how it could have been spending the time during the winter there. It has been six long years since I didn’t stay in my country during the coldest time, and I was wondering if I could have escaped the flu and bacteria that this season usually generates. Since I changed the food I was eating, and I started to pay more attention in having the quality ones, my body responds so well, and juicing is a huge part of the benefits I get. What I do pretty much every day is drinking my favorite juice which is a mix of oranges, grapefruits, ginger, carrots, celery, green apple, lemon or lime, and grapes. The deliciousness of this potent drink is huge; this is what I call my “Elisir di Lunga Vita” which means “Long Life Elixir.” I believe it’s what saved me from catching a cold and flu while I was there, even if I was strictly in contact sometimes with sick people. How powerful! My health conditions are overall good, and in a healthy person juicing is salutary because the natural sugar contained in the fruit especially, is easy to digest and to assimilate from our body. People who have diabetes though have to be more careful. A wrong diet and crappy food can cause diabetes, so first adjust this […]

Do you feel stuck?

September 25, 2017, Author: annalisa

How many times did you feel stuck? I surely did. It can happen, and it’s fine! When I felt stuck, I was noticing that my feelings weren’t pleasant at all. Some sense of frustration, sadness, anxiety, or incompletion was growing inside of me, and I didn’t feel comfortable with it. How could I change that emotional situation? Changing perspective sometimes can help us. I began to observe those feelings from another perspective, noticing that it was bringing me somehow a relief. Seeing those uncomfortable emotions from an angle of a progressing view instead of a stuckness was finally bringing me out to life again! Since I was opened to fully live intense periods of blocks as a natural part of my life, I started to savor my life as a journey and not as a destination. When do these blocks come? Maybe when not much is going on in our life, or we are trying to change a situation that we don’t like, or when we are not happy with someone or something, and what we usually do is forcing ourselves. Forcing something that doesn’t want to fall in the right direction is not probably the smartest thing to do, because it will bring tiredness and exhaustion. Practice detachment. When I start to let things go with the flow and don’t think much anymore about that thing that is not going anywhere, everything quiets down. There are times where we need to step back and relax. We can’t always control what […]
