Provision #478: Perfect Protein

Laser Provision Quantity, when it comes to protein, is generally not a problem. Most people eat more than enough. But do we eat the right proteins for health and wellness? Do we even know what the right proteins are? From the standpoint of evolutionary nutrition, the answer is clear: people evolved eating non-starchy fruits and […]

Provision #477: Vital Veggies

Laser Provision Too often vegetables are an afterthought, as in, “Eat your fruits and vegetables.” But vegetables deserve far more attention than that. They are at least as important, if not more important, to health and wellness than their fruitier cousins. We’re not talking here about French Fries and peanuts; those may be vegetables but […]

Provision #476: Fabulous Fruits

Laser Provision Today we dig into the one food that really loves to be eaten: fruit. There’s no way to eat too much fruit that is fresh, colorful, and organic (ideally from in-season, local sources). That’s because such fruit is so good for you. It is nutrient-rich with many health benefits, not to mention the […]

Provision #475: Powerful Plants

Laser Provision When it comes to optimal wellness, the nutritional powerhouses are fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. These foods are the star performers with a delightful quality: there’s almost no way to eat too much of them. That’s why the LifeTrek Optimal Wellness Prototype sets a minimum daily level of consumption for fruits and vegetables with […]

Provision #474: Water Clarity

Laser Provision I had not planned to write another Provision on water, but the replies and requests of the past week provoked me to greater reflection. There’s obviously more work to do and so I’ve written this Provision in Q&A format. The bottom line is that water benefits us on many levels, including the physical, […]

Provision #473: Water Rights

Laser Provision Good nutrition starts with good hydration. The human body is more water than anything else, so it behooves us to stay adequately hydrated with clean, fresh water. In most environments, that’s easier said than done. Either clean, fresh water is not available or it is eclipsed by other liquids. For anyone who wants […]

Provision #472: A Better Pyramid

Laser Provision Today we move on to look at the details of why the official 2005 Dietary Recommendations read the way they do. There’s a lot of science behind them, but they are limited by the mass audience for which they are written. If you want to stand out from the crowd, if you want […]

Provision #471: Nutrition 401

Laser Provision What are the basics of healthy nutrition? That question is harder to answer than it might, at first, appear. Food isn’t what it used to be and the effects are taking their toll. Overweight and obesity are the rule rather than the exception in many parts of the world while, at the same […]

Wellness Pathway #301 12 Good Ideas

I’m off this week for my annual trip to the Chautauqua Institution (www.ciweb.org) after which I will participate in a five-day training on Nonviolent Communication for Educators (www.cnvc.org). Since both of these events promise to be filled with great energy and inspiration (our Chautauqua theme is “Family: All of a Kind? All Different?”), I’m sure […]

Wellness Pathway #306 – Cut the Caffeine

In my Provision, Panic No More, I wrote about the life-sustaining rhythm between stress hormones like adrenalin and rest hormones like melatonin. In nature, the two work together to keep things in balance. Unfortunately, there’s much in the modern world that works against this rhythm, beginning with the vast extension of waking and working hours due […]
