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.

Foods that Help Fight Diabetes from Everyday Health

This article from Everyday Health promotes six foods to fight diabetes or prevent diabetes.  These foods are:

Cherries; I like cherries, but don't buy them very often because of the cost.  Maybe that will have to change.  Studies have found a significant difference with frozen cherries, and the benefits will be greater with fresh.

Black beans;  I love black beans and I select them whenever I get a chance, but maybe that is not often enough.  They are especially good with a little parmesan.

Boysenberries; Again I like Black and Boysenberries, (I am not sure of the difference) however they are so darn expensive.  Sometimes you can find them at a park and then I really enjoy.

Blueberries; Here I have a problem, I just don't care for blueberries.  I would much prefer strawberries or raspberries.

Sweet potatoes; Here the issue is the type of sweet potato.  I really like the kind we had in Argentina, which are nothing like yams.  I need to keep my eye out, because if I could replace regular potatoes with sweet potatoes every once in a while, I am sure it would help a great deal.

Blue corn; Here I have the biggest problem yet.  I am not sure where you would get blue corn.  However, I guess this makes an adventure.  Because it is grown in Mexico and the Southwest, I think I will start with some Mexican super markets.
