Dry Skin Help Our skin is naturally acidic to protect against bacteria. Many soaps are alkaline, though, so they strip away protective oils. To avoid dry, cracked hands, look for a soap that''s pH balanced or one that lists lactic acid or glycolic acid among the first half of its ingredients.
Choosing Coconut Oil Choosing unrefined, or "virgin" coconut oil will provide the most benefits since processing practices can negate its favorable properties.
Juice Cleanses Not for Healthy Weight Loss MYTH: Juice Cleanses Help You Eliminate Toxins"People think juice cleanses are a good way to detox the body," says McDaniel. "But I remind my clients that you have a built-in detox organ, the liver, and it''s very good at what it does." It probably won''t harm you if you go on a juice cleanse for a day or so, but as a way to lose weight, it''s not such a good idea since it deprives you of proteins and fats and may lead to muscle loss.
Losing Your Hair? Hair LossWhen you don''t get the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs from your diet, it can cause your hair to fall out. For instance, too little protein in your diet can damage healthy hair, and inhibit your body''s ability to build new hair follicles, which can cause noticeable hair loss after about two to three months of a protein-deficient diet. Very strict weight-loss diets can also cause noticeable hair loss, which commonly occurs about three months after losing 15 pounds or more of body weight.
Nuts & Chocolate = Mental Longevity? Compounds called plant sterols may help protect against Alzheimer''s, German research reveals. Mice on a diet enriched with stigmasterol - a plant sterol found in dark chocolate and many tree nuts, had 62% fewer Alzheimer''s-related brain proteins than mice that consumed no stigmasterol.
1 Whole Chicken (cut in serving pieces, trimmed of fat)
1 C fresh O.J.
2 tsp finely grated orange zest
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
Mix marinade, pour over chicken in ziploc bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible and seal the ziploc bag. Place in frig for an hour or two, shaking the ziploc bag occasionally. Save marinade when done!After marinating, place the chicken pieces on a rack in a roasting pan and roast, skin side up, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. After the first 30 minutes, you can begin to brush the chicken with glaze every 15 minutes.For the glaze, combine in small saucepan: orange marinade that was reserved, 1/2 C honey. Simmer until the volume of liquid is reduced by half and begins to slightly thicken. Any leftover glaze can be served over the chicken.
