I once read that the problem with our diet (lifestyle) is not in the fact that we don’t eat enough protein, or that we are not getting our share of healthy fats but that we don’t eat enough fiber. Our real problem is the lack of fiber in our diets. So, when the concept of 5-a-day first came about in the UK I was horrified because at the time I ate a piece of fruit or two a week and the same vegetables over and over. The worst part was I had passed down this habit to my children....Read More

I have been making my favorite green juice today. It is a fairly simple recipe and very light on the ‘green’ taste. Plus it is economical because you get a lot of juice out of the vegetables.

Using ingredients like celery and cucumber it is definitely the other way around – plenty of juice with less veg. So if you are on a budget using vegetables that produce a lot of juice is the way to go. My favorite green...Read More

What we think of old is changing. Zestizm is here to remind me and you of that very fact.
As we live longer the way we eat and move our body becomes crucial to enjoying not just the years in our life but the life in our years.
I was 47 years old when I decided to reduce the animal products I eat like meat and dairy. Increase the range of fruits and veg I eat while finding a way to balance that with regular exercise.
It is a continuous journey. This website reminds me to stay on it. It contains a mixture of what I am doing and what research and science says we should do.
