Wellness Tip for March 2018

Love the Lord with all Your “MIND”

Want another great reason to eat healthy? The food choices you make daily might lower your odds of getting Alzheimer‟s disease, some scientists say. The eating plan is called the MIND diet. Here‟s how it works.

You eat things from these 10 food groups:

 Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week.

 Other vegetables: At least one a day.

 Nuts: Five servings a week.

 Berries: Two or more servings a week.

 Beans: At least three servings a week.

 Whole grains: Three or more servings a day.

 Fish: Once a week.

 Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week.

 Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil.

 Wine: One glass a day.

You avoid:

 Red meat: Less than four servings a week.

 Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily.

 Cheese: Less than one serving a week.

 Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week.

 Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind. Luke 10:27
