Feta Cheese Nutrition
Cheese. Just a mere mention of the word and one would think of sumptuous appetizers or meals served with them. Cheese, when served with wine, depicts impeccable taste and class. Here is but one of the many varieties of cheeses: Meet the Feta Cheese.

Look for fresh feta cheese in the chilled deli section of most supermarkets. Originating from Greece feta was made by peasants on the lower Balkan peninsula from sheep or goats milk. Feta is salted and cured in a brine solution for several months. It is a crumbly cheese and has a slightly grainy texture. Once removed from the brine it dries out rapidly. For many feta is an acquired taste and the aroma of it has been likened to the smell of bad feet.

Havarti has a buttery aroma and can be somewhat sharp in the stronger varieties. The taste is also buttery, and from somewhat sweet to very sweet, and it is slightly acidic. It is typically aged about three months, though when it is older it gets more salty and has a hazelnut flavor. When left at room temperature, the cheese tends to soften quickly. Flavored variants of Havarti include: cranberry, caraway, dill, peppered, jalapeno and garlic.

Radish make a very satisfying crop because they grow really fast. It is a member of the mustard family and is related to cabbage, horseradish and turnips. Theradish nutritional benefits date back to 2000 B.C. A healthy radish is firm to the touch and has a bright reddish color with green leaves that are great for juicing.

You have to have good nutrition in order to function all day and to be able to participate in physical activities. The FDA has developed the food pyramid to help people learn how to eat the right combination of foods to have a healthier lifestyle. Unfortunately, many people aren't consuming the right balance of foods they need to maintain their long term health.

Kale is versatile, inexpensive, (a large bunch often costs less than $ 1.50) easy to cook and teeming with nutrients and minerals, taking top marks in almost every nutrient category. A one-cup serving of kale provides 354% of the recommended daily value (DV) of Vitamin A, 89% of Vitamin C, 1328% of Vitamin K, 10% -20% of Calcium, depending on the variety, and about 15% of dietary fiber.

You can substitute half or all of the higher fat ingredients. Be creative. For example, combine yogurt, garlic powder, lemon juice, a dash of pepper and Worcestershire sauce and use it to top a baked potato instead of piling on fat-laden sour cream.

Pregnancy and nutrition have a vital relationship and it is essential for women to have a well balanced meal. She has to provide her growing baby with minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients which are essential for the healthy growth of the infant. On the other hand there are some food items which should not be eaten as they can become hazardous to the mother as well as the developing baby.

Optimal Brain Nutrition

When I practiced as a doctor of Naturopathic medicine I found that supplements feeding the brain could reverse many neurological problems. 25 years ago my father had Parkinson's disease and was taking many medications. Through careful research I put together a formulation and asked him to take the supplements. I never had to ask him to take the supplements again, he would tell me, "You know I'm getting mighty low on those vitamins you gave me." My father being of an older generation and from the south this was quite a statement; it proved to me that he felt a difference on the supplements. I saw that he was able to keep strength and mobility quite well while he was on this program. Unfortunately my mother passed away and he married another woman who convinced him that he did not need to take any supplements. His health went down so quickly it was amazing and he died within three years after marrying her.

I am not stating that the supplements cured the Parkinson's disease, but they gave him mental clarity and energy that his body desperately needed. The proof was how quickly he deteriorated once he stopped using supplementation.

The supplements that feed the brain most effectively are, in order, as follows:

Spirulina. This tiny aquatic plant has been eaten by humans since prehistoric times and is grown worldwide as a healthy food. Imagine a vegetable with more protein than soy, more Vitamin A than carrots, more iron than beef, profound source of protective phytochemicals, naturally low in fat, source of the essential fatty acid GLA and is easy to digest. This food goes directly to the brain. It is an absolute must for people with Attention Deficit Disorders, Parkinson's disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis Alzheimer's disease, Autism, and any brain disorders.

Lecithin is an important phospholipid needed by all living cells.

One of many benefits of lecithin is its ability to aid in memory function and learning. Many studies have been conducted where people reported higher retention in learning and ability to recall information with an increase of lecithin. Even patients with Alzheimer's disease reported an improvement in memory and orientation. Lecithin is essential for people with Attention Deficit Disorders, Parkinson's disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis Alzheimer's disease, Autism, and any brain disorders.

Niacin, or vitamin B3, combines with other B vitamins to release energy in the cells, and to regulate circulation, hormones, glucose, and hydrochloric acid in the body. Niacin also works closely with riboflavin (vitamin B2) and pyridoxine (vitamin B6) to promote healthy skin, and keep the nervous and digestive systems running smoothly. This is an important supplement for neurological problems. When combined with a Multivitamin you will not experience a flush.

Multivitamins. Consistent use of multivitamins and other key supplements can promote good health and help prevent disease, according to a comprehensive new report released by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN). The report found that ongoing use of multivitamins (preferably with minerals) and other single-nutrient supplements (like calcium or folic acid) demonstrated quantifiable positive impact in areas ranging from strengthening the immune system of highly-vulnerable elderly patients, to drastically reducing the risk of neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida.

The brain will readily absorb these nutrients and a person will see a change in how they feel mentally and physically quickly with daily usage of these powerful supplements. Most people experience a change within two weeks of usage.

Natural Supplements have been found to reverse many conditions that were unable to be treated by any other modality; this has been documented by many different health organizations. The quality of the supplement has to do with the effectiveness of treatment. Natural supplements with careful quality control procedures can mean the difference between success and failure.

When it comes to eating-protein food is readily absorbed by the brain. Fish and eggs feed the brain more effectively than most other protein foods. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables for the valuable minerals and vitamins to energize the brain. Minimize carbohydrates such as bread, pastry and pizza.

Start feeding your brain today and have a happier healthy life!

I practiced as a doctor of Naturopathic medicine for over twenty years. I have extensive knowledge on the body and have written several articles on some of the main health issues and questions I have seen over the years. I specialize in the modalities such as: nutrition, supplements, physical medicine (includes soft tissue manipulative therapy, physiotherapy, sports medicine, exercise and hydrotherapy)
