Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

The New American Plate

I must admit, this plate does not look very appetizing to me.  I am more a fruit kind of guy than broccoli and squash.  However meat and rice is good.  I love watermelon, and berries, and green beans and peas.

Legumes and whole grains 
There you have it, the new American diet as presented by the American Cancer Society.  The most important thing here is to control your portion sizes.  And you can never forget about exercise.  In fact how active you are should determine your portions.
