Because You'll Gain Increased Energy and Stamina, Clearer Mind, and A Better Quality of Life
But you don't have the time to devote to eating better, exercising, even chilling out. You've already got too many activities, many responsibilities, and lots of things that must be done—now! You eat on the run--in a meeting, at your desk, in the car as you're taking the kids to school. And you don’t exercise. Probably don’t get enough sleep. And surely don’t eat right.
Who has the time to cook? It's too easy to go out to eat or pick up a fast food meal.
Yet the facts are that by paying attention to three simple aspects of a healthy life, the dividends far exceed the time and effort expended. Those three cornerstones of a healthy lifestyle are:
- Rest and stress relief, and, above all
- Healthy eating
If you decide to give your body and mind the chance to become healthy, to soar at their optimums, you'll see almost immediate results from minimum changes to your life. You'll be surprised at how easy these changes will be, and you'll end up feeling good about yourself, having a longer life span, and finding yourself free from all those diseases that are associated with the way your were living before--unhealthily. And when you make the decision to be healthy, you'll be more in control of your life.

Nuts and Raisin Mix
1 bag or container raw unsalted nuts such as peanuts, almonds, walnut pieces, or other favorite nuts
1 cup dried raisins
Buy raw, unsalted nuts in the produce section of your grocery or on-line from a nut vendor. (They may seem expensive, but there are a lot of nuts in these packages and they'll last a long time.) Roast nuts by spreading them on a rimmed cookie sheet. Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 9 minutes. Remove, cool, and place in a plastic container with a lid.
In another plastic container with lid, place 1 cup roasted nuts and 1 cup raisins. Mix. When you want a snack, remove 1/4 to 1/2 cup at a time and reclose lid to keep the mixture fresh.
