Today is Earth Day and what better way to celebrate the earth than to try and protect it? Sara Siskind, Certified Nutritional Health Counselor and founder of Hands On Healthy has come up with 6 ways to help our planet thrive by making small changes to our eating habits! Who knew we could help the environment by eating! No matter if you use these tips for cooking, or to keep your health and fitness goals alive, small daily changes = big impact!
See below for Sara’s tips
6 Simple Ways You Can Eat to Help Our Planet Thrive
1. Add more plant-based protein into your diet. Industrial farmed meat has a higher impact on the environment than any other food group. For a healthier and more environmentally friendly protein, try beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds instead. Lentil soup is an excellent source of protein and fiber and is simple to make. I also top my homemade salads with Setton Farm Pistachios and Pistachio Chewy Bites, which are filled with heart healthy fats and protein to keep your energy levels up throughout the day. Another thing I like to do is add tahini to my roasted vegetables to turn a side dish into a meal.
In a weight-obsessed world, it’s no wonder many go to extreme measures to lose those few extra pounds, often times risking their own health in the process. As any doctor will tell you, being overweight has it’s own significant health risks. How then do we find a balance, and with so many supplements out there to help in weight loss, how in the world do we know what to safely and properly take?
For many, limiting calories, eating smaller meals more often, making better food choices, and working out regularly is enough to help shed that weight, although oftentimes, not fast as this can be a very slow process, but generally a more healthy one with few health and safety risks. Still, only losing about 2 pounds a week (on a good week) is about as good as you will do, at least for most of us (especially women, as men are able to lose weight quicker).
Sometimes though, some of us find ourselves in situations where no matter how well we eat and how regularly we work out, those pounds are just not coming off. In which case, seeing your doctor will most likely benefit you best, as trouble losing weight can often be associated with health issues such as an underactive thyroid, and your doctor can help you rule this out or any other issues that may be keeping the weight stuck to you. Your Doctor can also help aid you in finding supplements that can be beneficial to your weight loss
Over the years we’ve seen many drugs and supplements come on the market that are able to do just that, but oftentimes may not be found safe for most users. One such drug is Phentermine. Phentermine is a psychostimulant drug of the substituted amphetamine chemical class. Similar to amphetamine, it helps raise energy and suppresses the appetite, but should only be taken short-term, and with the recommendation and watchful eye of your doctor, as Phentermine can produce cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and CNS side effects, as well as rare cases of pulmonary hypertension and cardiac valvular disease.
I’ve been eating and loving my Chia Seeds regularly for the last few years, ever since I Heard Dr. Oz talk about what a good superfood they are. Being vegetarian, and upon hearing how they’re packed with protein, has had me adding these yummy seeds to my salads, cereal, and oatmeal almost daily!
Today, March 23rd, we celebrate National Chia Seeds Day! Here are just a few fun facts on these yummy, nutritious seeds that might have you eating them daily in the near future too!

Imagine being embarrassed to hold a new love’s hand. Imagine your pulse racing when meeting someone and they offer you their hand to shake. What if you’re too nervous to try on new shoes at the store for fear of someone noticing your sweaty feet, so you completely avoided buying altogether. Imagine having so much anxiety over anyone touching your hands or feet, that you never visit a salon for a manicure or pedicure to relax after a hard week of work.
So why all the sweating anyway? First off, we sweat to regulate our body temperature. Sometimes life changes such as pregnancy or menopause can create excessive sweating. Anxiety or nervousness can cause it (anyone who has stood up in front of a group of people to give a presentation, or anyone who has ever gone on a first date, knows how the sweat can get going once the nerves are!) However, this is not always the case of excessive sweating either, and other times, people experience excessive sweating without life changes or anxiety-causing situations, which is known as hyperhidrosis.
For those suffering from Hyperhidrosis, you don’t have to imagine too hard. It’s a sad reality and one that plagues the daily activities and occurrences of coming into contact with others, that most of us don’t think twice about. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes men and women of any age to suffer from excessive sweating of the hands and feet. While the condition is rarely talked about, and most of us may not even know it exists, it does affect 3% of the population. For that 3%, interacting with others or enjoying touch with a loved can be a serious cause for stress.
Not sure if you suffer from Hyperhidrosis? Seeing your doctor can help you rule out this condition.
Read on for some tips to stop the sweating for good, whether you suffer from Hyperhidrosis or not.
