Hello and welcome. My name is Sylvia and I am the head coach and owner of metabolic balance of Central Indiana. In this blog I will provide you with news and updates about the world of metabolic balance.


WHFoods - Food of the Week: Green Beans

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 06 December 2009

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

 

Green Beans

Commonly referred to as string beans, the string that once was their trademark can seldom be found in modern varieties. Although these bright green and crunchy beans are available at your local market throughout the year, they are in season from summer through early fall when they are at their best and the least expensive.

Green beans are picked while still immature and the inner bean is just beginning to form. They are one of only a few varieties of beans that are eaten fresh. Although green beans vary in size they average about four inches in length. They are usually deep emerald green in color and come to a slight point at either end. They contain tiny seeds within their thin pods.

WHFoods - Food of the Week: Walnuts

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

  

Walnuts

 

Walnuts are a delicious way to add extra nutrition, flavor and crunch to a meal. While walnuts are harvested in December, they are available year round a great source of those all-important omega-3 fatty acids.

It is no surprise that the regal and delicious walnut comes from an ornamental tree that is highly prized for its beauty. The walnut kernel consists of two bumpy lobes that look like abstract butterflies. The lobes are off white in color and covered by a thin, light brown skin. They are partially attached to each other. The kernels are enclosed in round or oblong shells that are brown in color and very hard.

WHFoods - Food of the Week: Turkey

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

  

Turkey

There is probably no other food that evokes images of celebration, family, friends and giving thanks than turkey. November is the month noted as the season for enjoying turkey but its wonderful taste and nutritional value should not be reserved just for the holidays as it is available to enjoy year-round.

The rise in popularity of this lean meat has been spurred by the increased availability of individual turkey pieces such as breasts, tenderloins, cutlets and ground turkey. These alternatives to cooking a whole turkey have made it more convenient for people to easily incorporate turkey into their diets.

WHFoods - Food of the Week: Broccoli

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 02 January 2010

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

  

 

Broccoli

Broccoli is a member of the cabbage family, and is closely related to cauliflower. Its cultivation originated in Italy. Broccolo, its Italian name, means "cabbage sprout." Because of its different components, broccoli provides a range of tastes and textures, from soft and flowery (the floret) to fibrous and crunchy (the stem and stalk). Do not let the smell of the sulfur compounds that are released while cooking keep you away from this highly nutritious vegetable.

WHFoods - Food of the Week: Cauliflower

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 10 February 2010

Every week The World's Healthiest Foods web page (WHFoods.Org) selects one of 129 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. This week's pick is ...

 

Cauliflower

 

The milk, sweet, almost nutty flavor of cauliflower is at its best from December through March when it is in season and most plentiful in your local markets.

Cauliflower lacks the green chlorophyll found in other members of the cruciferous family of vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and kale, because the leaves of the plant shield the florets from the sun as they grow. It has a compact head (called a "curd"), usually about six inches in diameter that is composed of undeveloped flower buds. The flowers are attached to a central stalk.

5-Minute Healthy Sautéed Cauliflower

Enjoy the extra flavor and health benefits from combining cauliflower with turmeric for this easy-to-prepare, great-tasting side dish that will complement almost any meal. Turmeric has long been recognized as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both Chinese and Indian systems of medicine, and modern scientific research continues to reinforce the benefits of this tasty spice. One serving of this dish also provides 181% of the daily value (DV) for vitamin C, 46% DV for vitamin K, and 33% DV for folate. Enjoy!

How is your New Year's Resolution doing?

By Sylvia Egel - Posted on 14 February 2011

It is mid February and most Americans have already given up on their New Year's Resolution to lose weight in 2010 ... according to one statistic, only 20% of us maintain our resolutions past Valentine’s Day!

But don't despair - Lent offers you a second chance to pursue your health goal!

Throughout history fasting was either dictated by nature or prescribed for religious reasons. In recent years there has no longer been an agricultural need for fasting - our tables and pantries are easily filled with all the vital nutrients, even during the winter month it is possible to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Religious fasting, however, is still omni-present! Lent, for example, starts on Ash-Wednesday and culminates in Easter. For Lent many of us will decide to give up a favorite food or drink (e.g. chocolate, alcohol) or activity (e.g., going to the movies, playing video games, etc.), or may instead take on a discipline such as devotions or volunteering for charity work. Why don't you use this opportunity to invigorate your New Year's Resolution and kick-start your weight loss?

Use the time of Lent to reach your goals with the help of metabolic balance® ... and prepare for a healthier you and a balanced metabolism.

Don't miss your second chance ... call me at (317) 564-2333.
