Nutrition tips to improve mood, memory, muscles and more
By Joy Bauer, PARADE Magazine

Sardines For Heart Health

Ounce for ounce, sardines are one of the best sources for heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and are extremely low in contaminants such as mercury and PCBs. They’re also eco-friendly, packed with protein, and low in saturated fat.

Brazil Nuts For Prostate Health

Brazil nuts are one of the richest food sources of selenium, a mineral that may reduce a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer. Selenium may be toxic if taken in daily doses of more than 400 micrograms (mcg).

Edamame For Mood

Mood is affected by a combination of factors, including brain chemistry, life events, and the foods you eat. Of these, only diet is under your control. Fiber-rich carbohydrates such as oats and edamame (green soybeans in the pod) help prevent mood fluctuations by keeping your blood-sugar levels steady. Edamame also contain protein, which further helps stabilize blood sugar, and omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to help combat depression.

Sesame Seeds For Sex Drive

They’re inexpensive, safe, and don’t require a prescription. They’re also very rich in the amino acid arginine, which is involved in synthesizing nitric oxide, a compound that enhances blood flow through the arteries and—ahem—to various other male body parts.

Blueberries For Memory

Did you know that much of their power lies in their color? That deep blue hue is caused by flavonoids—natural compounds that protect the brain’s memory-carrying cells (neurons) from the negative effects of oxidation and inflammation. Buy firm-fleshed berries or, off-season, try frozen, unsweetened varieties. Eat with plain yogurt, as a topping for cereal, or right out of the bowl.

Lentils For Energy

Rich in fiber and protein—both of which are digested slowly—lentils provide a steady source of energy. They’re also a good source of several B vitamins essential to energy production, as well as iron, which helps red blood cells carry oxygen. Try whipping up a big batch of lentil soup, and you’ll have a hearty lunch for days.

An hour before I went to the office, I watched " Eat Bulaga" first. Eat Bulaga [ ] is the longest noontime show in the Philippines. In the show, I learned that it will be Friday the 13th if the first day of the month is Sunday. Because June 1st was Sunday so today's Friday the 13th.

Friday the 13th is considered a day of bad luck in English-, French- and Portuguese-speaking countries around the world, as well as in Austria, Germany, Estonia, Finland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Republic of Ireland, Poland, Bulgaria, Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, and even the Philippines .

Similar superstitions exist in some other traditions. In Greece, Romania and Spanish-speaking countries, for example, it is Tuesday the 13th that is considered unlucky. In Italy it is Friday the 17th.

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia, a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή) (meaning Friday), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς) (meaning thirteen), attached to phobía (φοβία) (meaning fear). The term is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a simple phobia (fear) of the number thirteen appearing in any case.

I love writing. In fact, I was a contributor in one of the newspapers in Bohol and in the school were I finished my degree. But, my passion in writing lessened when I started working because I had to prioritize my job.

Yet, my passion in writing went back when I met Aya. Aya is my student in English and my friend as well. She has lots of meaningful and great ideas, topics and things to write. I always admire her posts because they're all realistic; moreover, essential & related to LIFE.

I can always ponder many important things whenever I read Aya's blog. Thus, I always look forward & feel excited to see and read her new posts. On the other hand, I'm always inspired to write because of her.

I guess Aya has a potential to be an effective and a successful writer.

Her recent post, 525,600 minutes , is very nice. It's all about LIFE - on how we live and use our time; as well as, about how many good things or accomplishments we make each day & in the whole year round.

Is my life worthwhile? Do I have accomplishments in life? Am I living wisely?...these are just some of the questions I asked to myself after I read the above post.

You're great, Aya! Keep writing!
