•Fruits and vegetables. They can fill you up without giving you so much calories. But yes, it could really be boring to munch a piece of fruit just anywhere. Here is what you can do: prepare a mixture of sliced fruits (apples and banana), add a drop of lemon juice, and put it in a sealed container. At home or in the office, make strips of cucumber and turnips, then sprinkled with a pinch of salt.

• Nuts can also be a good “in-between meal nourishment.” Nuts consist of monounsaturated fats which can give that feeling of fullness. Aside from its fiber content, it also contains magnesium, manganese, protein, zinc, and phosphorus.

•Low fat and calorie foods. When choosing healthier snacks, do not only look at the fat content but also the sugar and the carbohydrates. A food may be low in fat, but high in sugar and vice versa.

• Low sodium foods. Be conscious of the sodium content of snack foods. When given several choices, don’t just go for one with better taste. Good health is not achieved by foods that have one good ingredient. You should eat foods that do not have negative ingredients like sodium (could be from salt or other baking ingredients). For example, delete crackers from your snack lists, no matter if they are advertised as healthy. This is especially true with those that have more than 100 mg of sodium per serving size.

Although snacks can really help cut down main meal caloric intake, it can also be a source of excess calories if you do not monitor total caloric intake. As we are all being encouraged, read the labels for calories, good nutrient contents, and negative ingredients. Snack healthily.

Many of us love nuts.  Some says that nuts makes the memory sharp.  That’s why some parents asked their children to eat nuts before going to take an examination.  Nuts (without salt or sugar) contain mono and polyunsaturated fats which are good for insulin sensitivity and serum cholesterol. So if your blood sugar is high, eat at least five pieces of almonds or walnuts daily.

Cornstarch isn’t just for making gravy.  Cornstarch helps control high blood-sugar levels. It could even prevent an attack of hypoglycemia.  It is effective for type 1 diabetics prone to low blood-glucose levels.  Diabetics who consume a mixture of uncooked cornstarch in a drink without sugar (milk or sugar-free soda) find themselves waking up in the morning with fewer problems. Ask your doctor about this natural solution.

Controlling cough

Heartburn is often the culprit for one in every 10 chronic coughers. Solution? Eat a banana, which is a great acid neutralizer. Or expel the toxins:

Have a bowl of hot soup. This can loosen mucus.
Drink warm liquids and water. Avoid ice-cold beverages.
Take a hot shower or steam bath.
Take olive leaf extract, a syrupy health tonic that will ease your itchy throat and speed up healing time. Call 0922-8820575.
Stop smoking.

Beauty and first aid

Aloe vera has many uses. The clear jelly-like sap is good for insect bites, cuts and burns. An anti-inflammatory, it is also a good oral suppository.
