Good Nutrition and Health

 

Vitamin A (retinol) function is essential for healthy eyes, skin, hair, organ linings, and bone formation. Vitamin A is a fat- soluble vitamin.

Food Sources: carrots, dark green leafy vegetables, cantaloupes, oranges, apricots, fortified milk products, eggs and oily fish.

Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) is essential for hemoglobin, maintain healthy skin, and regulate the function of cells in the nervous system.
Food Sources: bananas, dark green leafy vegetables, papayas, oranges, cantaloupes, beans, sweet potatoes and other potatoes, sunflower seeds, fortified cereals, poultry and fish.

I grew up on a farm of large fields of vegetables, and orchards with their beautiful trees bearing fruits and nuts. My parents also, raised animals; chickens, cows, pigs, horses and a dog. There were places to fish and hunt. The farm gave us back more than my parents put into it. We received good health and happiness.

 

Vegetables, fruits and nuts are much needed in our diets. It is difficult to get many of our young people and older ones as well, to eat green leafy vegetables. Exercise, without eating the proper foods will not produce a healthy and fit body. I have listed food products, and their nutritional values, sources of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and their functions in the body.

Flesh vs. Spirit: the War Within   Leave a comment

Whether trying to maintain a desired weight, remaining faithful to a spouse or reaching a goal, temptation exists – causing its victim to make a choice and sometimes several choices. When the individual feels guilty and want to do good by correcting mistakes, but finds themselves powerless against the temptation, the battle is within -thereby, causing the individual to become imbalanced. The flesh and the spirit are now at war.

Paul, the Apostle, clearly understood these things. He stated, ” For I know that in me [that is, in my flesh] dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but  the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.” Romans 7:18-20.

No human being, is empowered to live above temptation. But, we can find ways to control our fleshly desires, and to reach our goals. It is too difficult to fight these battles alone – to do so, often leads to self destruction. For more information, I recommend this book to inspire courage, hope and strength.
