Although sometime is can be difficult to prepare and cook fresh meals every day. You owe it to yourself and your family to eat healthy to live a long vigorous flourishing life. Eating out and having fast food and takeaways is really no substitute for home cooking fresh food. However, eating out doesn’t mean the food is unhealthy. It means the food you are going to eat out, you have no control over how it is sourced, prepared and cooked. Still, you can check that the food you are going to eat out in restaurants or fast food if it is nutritious and healthy.
Whenever you buy ready-made food for you and your family to eat, check that the food haven’t got too much added salt, saturated fat, (oil) and sugar. Added sugars and salt is defined as extra sugars and salt used in processed or prepared foods to sweeten beverages, fruit drinks, dairy products, desserts, candy, ready-to-eat cereals, cakes and breads, not natural sugar found in fruits and fruit juices. Make the effort to cut down on the intake of too much salt, fat and sugar.
Radically change what you eat, and think about what you are going to eat. Add more herbs, spices and lemon as a substitute for salt. Use more garlic, chilli, black pepper and thyme in seasoning. Be aware that fresh herbs also add colour and flavour to food.
You don’t have to prepare and cook a balance diet every day, neither does it have to take too long or expensive. If you haven’t got the time to cook every day and are going to cook food from scratch, the trick is to buy enough food, for you to prepare and cook enough to leave for other days. Don’t discard or throw away leftover. Leftover can be used other days to turn into stews, soups and curries.
You can freeze leftover to use sometime later, and at the same time you can save on groceries. You can also prepare quick and easy food such as salads, pasta, steam vegetables, grilled meat and fish. Mediterranean and Jamaican food is regarded as nutritious and healthy. Medical research in food science says Mediterranean diet is food which consist of olive oil, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, fish, seafood, white meats, and an occasional drink of red wine with meals. These studies showed that this diet also is effective in preventing the development of type 2 diabetes, and consuming nuts and fresh vegetables can significantly reduced high blood pressure and major cardiovascular problems (stroke, heart attack which can cause sudden death.)
You might find buying frozen, and tinned prepared food better than cooking from scratch, but try to avoid processed food which is high in salt, sugar and saturated fat. Research shows that is better for our health to eat the leanest meat, more vegetables, fruits, nuts whole grain. Extra and overripe fruits is also can use for making smoothie.

You might feel starved of opportunities and chances for you to become successful. However, how you look upon becoming successful is up to you. If you think, feel, and believe you can be a success, you can accomplish success by doing something practical. It is not what you say you are going to do, success is measured in what you have successfully done, with what you have invented or produced and have achieved. Then you can measure how successful you are.
You can be easily be overwhelmed by choices and the decisions you have made about what you have to do and want to accomplish. Believe that everything is possible, and work to make it possible. Doing and accomplishing the possibilities takes belief in you, focus, motivation, enthusiasm, faith, and momentum. Choices, decisions, action, and time will bring results and success.
Lack of focus, lack of clarity and direction will make you lose interest and the impetus to be more productive. When you have lost interest, and the incentive to be productive, be honest and sincere with yourself that you are not able to do what you need to do to be productive and successful. Get out of inertia by resetting and change your mind-set. Free yourself from all distractions, re-energize, and fire up yourself to take the right kind of action that will make you more productive.
Some of the other most important things you will have to do, to become more productive, are to allocate time to work decisively on with what you are doing, and keep attending to doing it. You will also need a plan, and strategies to complete and achieve specific projects and goals within an allocated time. Take decisive actions at the time, which you have allocated to complete each project. Each day, focus on the most important project, which has to be completed, and keep taking decisive, relentless action to complete what you have started. © KB http://www.mindprocess.co.uk/blog/
