I loved the addition of the cinnamon and peach to this green monster! It made for a refreshing drink.

For Adam, I made another version of healthy pancakes.

I blended up the all-natural blueberry flax seed oatmeal with coconut milk and chia seeds.

Then I added the mixture to the Heart Healthy pancake mix and 1 egg.

This led to delicious, dense pancakes with pretty good nutritional stats! Smile Happy Mom, happy son.

Today’s agenda:

  • Laundry
  • Work-out (run outside?)
  • Self-portrait for painting (ughhh..)
  • Study for Cognitive Quiz

Sounds like a fun-filled Sunday? I’ll pretend that the previous statement is true.Winking smile

Let’s talk modern-day health.

Did you happen to read the article about the rise of Diabetes predicted within the next 40 years ?

To be honest, I’m not shocked. In fact, this makes perfect sense. Look at the eating habits of a large majority of today’s adults. There is a fast-food joint on every corner and sedentary lifestyles are becoming the norm.

Obesity rates are rising at an astounding rate, thus it makes sense that diabetes rates would rise as well!

We are talking about Type 2 Diabetes here. It is largely preventable and even reversible through diet and exercise.

Not only is Diabetes detrimental to health, but it causes great financial strain due to high medical costs.

Sounds like something you’d want to avoid, right?

So let’s spread the word. What can you do to decrease your chances of developing Type 2 Diabetes?

  • Eat a balanced, healthy diet.
  • Keep your weight within a healthy range.
  • Exercise Regularly.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Keep stress levels to a minimum. Or at least deal with stress in a healthy manner.

These are habits you should adopt to live a healthy lifestyle in general. But if you can reduce your risk of disease in the process, it’s a win/win situation.
