Blue Domed Beehives

Blue Domed Beehives

Usually beehives are made of wood but in this case, these beehives were made of a blue plastic shaped into a dome. I took this photograph near Stonewall in the Interlake area of Manitoba. I kept the blue colour to emphasize how unique and outstanding they are in the fields they pollinate.

According to Wikipedia, “Bees feed on nectar and pollen, the former primarily as an energy source and the latter primarily for protein and other nutrients.”

The Plant Plus Diet Solution

Personalized Nutrition for Life

Personalized Nutrition for Life

Book: “The Plant Plus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life” by Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

If the Pareto Principles is correct a 20% change in your eating habits can make an 80% change in your diet. This book is full of science bites – chapters explaining medical terminology and nutrition. It was so technical at times, that I wish I had pictures of the part of the body that the author was talking about or the sample of fatty-acid chains as examples to better illustrate the words.

Nonetheless, the book goes through quite a few studies to highlight the most recent findings. Many scientific studies can be geared a certain direction especially if an industrial giant is sponsoring the study or a scientist has a certain predisposition or bias.

The discussion covers proteins, carbohydrates and fats. There is a great deal of research on fats, especially those that are good for you which ones are not. It continues to discuss the fat versus calorie perspective and the breadth of diets from Atkins to the Zone Diet. It discusses a fair bit about gut microbes and also the Standard American Diet (SAD). It discusses epigenetics which is how the environment affects your genetics.

Largely, this book lets you design your own diet based on your own needs. It talks about having low-glycemic foods instead of high-glycemic foods in your diet. It talks about increasing your plant intake so as to provide fibres and needed foods for the bacteria in your gut. It talks about how many illnesses will be reduced or eliminated depending on how well we are able to create a plant-plus diet.

I would recommend this book if you are interested in your health and would like to lose weight. Finally, at the end, there are some recipes made with super foods.

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
