Chopped Salad for Better Nutrition

Chopped Salad

My Aunt Bridie and Uncle Frank from Galway, Ireland introduced me to the chopped salad this spring. I’ve always loved salad and never thought that a salad could be so delicious and magical, so boy was I surprised when I ate their chopped salad.

Here’s the most exciting part: a chopped salad delivers far more nutrition than a regular salad. The reason is by chopping it you make more of the nutrients available for your body to absorb. When we chew salad we do a woeful job of actually tearing it apart enough to glean all the nutritional benefits.

The other reason why this chopped salad is more nutritious is because of the big variety of greens, sulphur based, and colorful veggies you’ll be getting which is right in line with the highly regarded advice by Dr. Terry Wahls on how to eat for your health.

Here is my version of it. I hope you love it and please let me know your feedback in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook. Continue Reading →

The Antidote to Fear

Scared

Fear rules our lives in so many ways and is responsible for so much of our internal misery. When confronted with fear our reaction is either to control the situation or to escape the situation.

The Comedian’s Guide for Living Life to its Fullest

Laughing out loud

This is a guest post by Brook Bridge
At some point, and probably for everybody, we all have that sense that we aren’t doing anything worthwhile. We might get a promotion at work, spend time with our friends, make dinner, see a movie, have hobbies, and yet? It still feels as if something is missing.

Suddenly, when the idea of my own mortality was impossible to ignore, I realized I needed to make my life better. I need to figure out how to live it fully, how to make it memorable, and how to spend my time doing things that enriched my life rather than just passing the time. Continue Reading →

Have you ever become offended or felt hurt by something someone said to you even though deep down you know that the person didn’t mean to offend you? So why did it offend you or make you feel bad? It’s because you paired their comment with your own deeply rooted self-judgments.

You had to make a leap in translating their words. You determined their “true meaning” to be in line with your own insecurities and low-esteemed beliefs about yourself.

Learn how to stop this habit in your life and watch your happiness open up. Here’s the key.
