The Needs and Essence of Gardening.

I would like to share you the different aspects needed in gardening. Raising and producing foods start in having small garden. The improvement of varieties and kinds of plants we produce and consume also start in a garden.

It is unfair for me to post result here without telling how I have done it, so little by little I will be imparting knowledge and technique we have in producing different crops. This blog was intended to inform and help you produce more food, because I believed that the main problem that everybody has right now is to where we can find source of food we must have to sustain our body needs daily.

The Needs

  1. You don't need to own a large parcel of land to start gardening. You only need a small part of land where seeds, cuttings, tubers, crowns, slips, and other planting materials could be planted. If you don't have small part of land, you could use containers to fill soil, plant any planting materials that may fit in and is suitable to grow within.

The Unmatched Power of Happiness

Before and until now, happiness is claimed to be a source of energy and power.
New British research has found that the more satisfied you are with your life, the lower your danger of coronary heart disease.

Happy Life, Happy Heart
While it's long been known that negative emotions such as depression and anxiety put you at risk for heart disease, there's been surprisingly little research on whether positive emotions prevent coronary trouble. To find out, scientists asked nearly 8,000 people to rate their satisfaction in seven key areas of life: jobs, family, love, leisure, standard of living, sex, and self. Those who scored higher than average satisfaction in all categories had up to 13 percent less risk of heart disease, heart attacks,

Nuts Contains Fewer Calories.

Nuts is belong to upper portion of food pyramid. They are part of grow foods, but they don't contain much calorie compared to the other kinds of grow foods. Know about their importance and function to maintain our body.

A recent study suggests that human bodies don't absorb all the calories in pistachios, because the fat from this nut isn't readily absorbed by the intestinal tract.

What's in a Calorie?
Proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and alcohol have been assigned a simple caloric value most dieters know by heart. Protein and carbs supply 4 calories per gram of food while fat supplies 9 calories per gram. And alcohol lands in the middle -- at about 7 calories per gram. But in light of this new study, researchers believe that these caloric factors may be outdated and may overestimate calories. And the researchers figure that the caloric value of pistachios is probably overestimated by about 6 percent, given the number of calories that actually get absorbed. 


Here are two more reasons you should stock your pantry with pistachios:

Have it for 5 Minutes, and Get 5 Years Younger.


Everyone wants to control the process of aging, but no one can do it. But here are some way to possibly do your wish. Just try them and believed, then see if what will be the outcome.
In a Chinese study, the cells of enthusiastic tea drinkers showed about 5 fewer years' worth of wear and tear compared with the cells of people who drank little tea.

Age Marker
The enthusiastic tea drinkers averaged 3 or more cups of green or oolong tea daily, while the group that showed more signs of cell aging averaged less than a cup. The researchers looked specifically at the study participants' telomeres to see how much their cells had aged. Telomeres are the protective end caps on your DNA strands. They get a smidge shorter every time cells divide, so the shorter these caps are, the older your cells are, too. And in the study, the most avid

Maintaining our body

It is said that prevention is much better than cure.
How?
We should know and particular about the food pyramid, the go, grow, and glow. The go foods are rice, cereals, bread, corn, and root crops. The grow foods are the meat, milk, eggs, nuts, fish, and butter. The glow foods are the different fruits and vegetables. We should eat plenty of go foods because it is our everyday source of energy, then minimal amount of glow foods, and little on grow foods. The different age group need different food and amount. The infant and children

needs more go and grow foods for their growth years. Adult need more go and glow foods. There are recommended amount of daily food intake for different age group, but if we are not aware, let us be familiar with the vitamins and minerals content of certain food we eat.  But if we're not sure, let us just take a little amount of the food we seldom eat, because we're not sure if what will be its effect on us after taking it.
Take this..
Every food we eat must need to be consumed or used up for our activity. Ninety percent cause of illness is the food we take. Any food that will be converted to energy that will not be used will destroy our body. So there is a need to activate our organs and system to function well and maintain our body. Sometimes we get lazy for any activity or work, but if we love our body and want to live longer and healthy, we must go in having any activity that will not only burn our fats and energy, but will maintain our flexibility and strength, and will make us stay younger and healthy.
If you're maintaining your weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol, ask your doctor about your physical activity and the amount and kind of food that you must take daily.
Your health is your wealth, so be positive and serious about it.
